-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 A Good Time To Share Some More Victories

...as Americans prepare to go to the polls and either retain or reject the folks who just voted to add 87,000 new IRS agents to the federal bureaucracy.

87,000 NEW MOUTHS LOCKED ON to the federal teat (and-- along with their spouses and dependents-- reliably voting from now on to do whatever it takes to keep it full of other people's money) is bad enough. But that's just an incremental increase in the mountain of compelling reasons to go to the polls, dragging all your friends along, and throw out of office every statist shill, prostitute and enabler (of any party).

Among those other compelling reasons in these current dark days are the ongoing evisceration of the American economy, the deliberate destruction of domestic tranquility, and the looming threat of nuclear annihilation, all brought on by those currently in office in Washington (and in many cases in state capital and city halls).

So, vote, people, please!

AT THE SAME TIME that you mark election day on your calendar, though, don't lose sight of the bigger picture and all the tools in the toolbox. While Americans were provided with the vote as the standard, repeating mechanism for political and policy corrections, the Founders and Framers recognized that sometimes corruption can become so pervasive (or dangers so immediate) that reliance on voting alone is inadequate to the People's needs.

Hence we have, for instance, a supposedly independent judiciary; and a supposedly adversarial press equipped with legal guarantees of unhindered speech (which extend to everyone, whether formally organized as media or just as individuals speaking truth as they see it).

Hence, we have, for instance, the decisions to allow state punishment of Americans being left in the hands of the citizenry by way of juries, Hence we have, for instance, in extremis, the Second Amendment.

And hence we have the power to very largely defund corrupt American governments, acting entirely as individuals, with no permission slip needed from any quarter. The exercise of that power involves nothing more challenging than merely declining to engage in excise-taxable activities, along with knowing what constitutes such activities and how to overcome corrupt government efforts to pretend and persuade that ALL economic activities are of the excisable sort.

Well, exercising the "excise power" does require one other thing, I guess-- the courage to do it and to stand tall doing it, even in the face of frothy efforts to discourage such extremely inconvenient behavior by the corrupt government officers whose personal gravy train, by which we are all being carried over a cliff, is thereby derailed.

ALL THAT SAID, THEN, this is a good time to celebrate another group of courageous, patriotic, grown-up American men and women. I'm talking about folks who are not just complaining about the direction the ship is going, and not just pointing at the iceberg ahead or re-arranging the deck chairs or crew-members. Instead, these good folks are down in the engine-room shutting valves and dampening the boilers, despite the captain's angry glare.

Behaving like heroes, in other words. Here they are:

Joseph McGarty

JOSEPH HAS SECURED THE RETURN, with interest, of everything subtracted from his paycheck during 2021 under the label, "federal income tax withheld":

Here is the filing by which this refund was secured. (As can be seen, for reasons of his own, Joseph declined to reclaim the amounts of federal income tax withheld under the labels "Social security" and "Medicare" tax.)

Joseph has also secured the return of everything withheld from him during 2021 and diverted to California:

...by way of this filing.

***

Joseph White

Joseph has become free of income tax misapplication and wants you to do the same. It's a short, simple message that everyone needs to hear.

Here is the filing by which Joseph secured the victory of which he speaks in this video.

***

Tyler & Amizero O'Donnell

TYLER & AMIZERO SHARE THEIR LATEST VICTORY, this one with the feds for 2021:

 

This victory, secured by this filing, is the return of, well, it's hard to say, except to say that it is not everything owed. But this one is short in a most unusual way.

Normally, if the IRS decides to run a short refund scam, it will send out all nominal "federal income tax withheld" and hold back the FICA withholdings, despite the fact that refunding the one is an admission that the others are not owed (per 26 U.S.C. § 3503, subject to the Supreme Court ruling in Rowan Cos. v. United States-- see the NOTE at the top of page 2 in this document). The hope in such cases seems to be that the target of the scam will either not know the law, or will stand down anyway, content to be only partially robbed.

Here, however, the IRS declares itself to be omitting the nominal federal income tax withheld from the refund, and ONLY returning the FICA withholdings (while somehow making a ~$200 math error in the process). Here's how this all played out.

To begin with, Tyler & Amizero received a LTR12C in response to their filing. The LTR asked for verification of the withheld amounts listed in their return (an occasionally-deployed fraud-ish game by which the agency pretends that it has not been sent W-2s by the payer involved on which all the withheld amounts are verified, in the hope of tricking a filer into sending those forms-- which also contain erroneous "wage" allegations-- to the agency and compromising their filing).

Tyler & Amizero are not fools, though, and promptly sent this sensible response.

Five weeks later, the IRS sent this CP12 notice. On it, the IRS declares that Tyler & Amizero are owed only an $8,232.00 refund, rather than the $12,717.09 claimed. The reason given:

The form also makes a key admission (even while making an amazing, incomprehensible, and wholly erroneous assertion as to Tyler & Amizero's "taxable income" figure from line 15 of their 1040):

Then the agency follows with a false assertion as to the amount of income tax withheld as reported on line 25d of Tyler & Amizero's 1040, putting down an amount almost $400 more than the nominal income tax withheld reported on Tyler & Amizero's Form 4852 but $238.76 less than the combined FICA withholdings reported, adds a claimed credit, and ends up at the amount sent to the couple a few days earlier:

O, what a tangled web, eh? This one might end up in the 'Every Which Way But Loose' collection...

Anyway, Tyler & Amizero have fired off a sharp and well-educated response to the gibberish. We'll see what happens.

Timothy Bell

Timothy methodically shares his victories in applying the liberating truth and invites all other good Americans to join him in upholding the law. Everyone should listen, and everyone should step up and follow in Timothy's footsteps.

See Timothy's posted victories here and here.

***

Sheryl Randle

SHERYL CONTRIBUTES A NICE VICTORY-- a complete refund of everything withheld from her during 2020 and given over to the feds against what was eventually determined to be no income tax liability, plus interest to make up for the six month delay before sending Sheryl her money in August of 2022:

Here is the filing by which Sheryl recovered her property.

***

Karen McFadden

Karen came across 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' and lost her fear of the IRS. Listen to her story!

***

James W.*

JAMES HAS ALSO SHARED a delayed refund for 2020 from Uncle Sam, this one arriving in June of 2022, and in the form of a notice acknowledging that all withholding (which was nothing but FICA) is an overpayment. Annoyingly, the IRS applied the refund to a purported outstanding balance for a different year:

Here is the filing that produced this complete refund.

*Normally, I no longer bother to post a "victory" for which a complete name is not shared. Such a thing might be a victory in upholding the law, and monetarily, but is clearly not a victory of heart and mind-- the kind that really counts the most. The exception is made here because the refund is entirely of FICA withholdings, which illustrates an important point.

Joel Bliss

Joel has a dog that works for the IRS... or so it would appear. Let him tell you all about it.

See Joel & Valerie Bliss's posted filing and refund here

***

Christopher Brenner

CHRISTOPHER SHARES HIS DEBUT VICTORY-- a complete refund of everything withheld from him during 2021 and given over to Michigan:

Here is the filing that led to this uplifting victory.

***

WELL DONE, EVERYONE!

HATS VERY MUCH OFF to Joseph, Joseph, Tyler & Amizero, Timothy, Sheryl, Karen, James, Joel & Valerie, and Christopher! 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."

-Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program, in his book 'When You Owe The IRS'

FINALLY,

FRIENDS, I'LL BE IN NASHVILLE Friday, October 21, to participate in a rally encouraging the Tennessee legislature to prohibit "trans"-related mutilations of children (which you can find discussed briefly here, and in much greater depth, here).

The rally begins at 4PM in War Memorial Plaza on Union St. in Nashville, in front of the state capitol. It is being organized by Matt Walsh and other good folks at the Daily Wire. Details can be found here. This issue matters a lot, and I'll be very pleased if you can join me.

Again, On The Situation In Ukraine

Again, the madness continues, and worsens...

UKRAINE: A COUNTRY RUN BY CORRUPT PUBLIC OFFICIALS perfectly willing to act as a well-paid cash laundromat for corrupt public officials in America. See this and then this, and then this. Read it all thoroughly and carefully, following links as they appear.

Among many other things, learn from that reading that the prospect of Eastern Ukrainian regions voting overwhelmingly to be annexed by Russia is not only unremarkable, it is entirely predictable and the only realistic possibility.

Learn, too, just how much everything you have ever heard about Ukraine and Russia over especially the last several years is utter and despicable propaganda, meant to make you acquiescent, if not a participant, in atrocities.

And then see this to learn that however much Biden & Co.'s. policies toward Ukraine and Russia have enriched those sociopaths, they have been a sustained act of gross irresponsibility.

And then, damn it, spread these links around!!

YES, THOSE OPENING PARAGRAPHS are the same ones that opened this topic in the Oct. 3, 2022 newsletter. Seeing no comments posted to an article, I have to suspect that somehow no one saw it...

That's a problem. Seeing and following those links is REALLY IMPORTANT.

Everyone needs to wake up to the fact that what's going on in Ukraine is long in the making by the US deep state (at least since 2008, with a big ramp-up in 2014-- as will be shown at the links above-- and with considerable refinement in 2019 by way of a CIA/DOD RAND Corporation study, as entertainingly discussed here). The scheme has it's own beneficiary contingent of lunatic, side-effect-blindered boosters, is ruining the world economy (and fracturing overall world stability which otherwise might have been preserved intact or allowed to harmoniously evolve) and REALLY, REALLY, REALLY IS fraught with the peril of a nuclear holocaust.

BECAUSE OF THE VERY REAL DANGERS attendant upon continued US/NATO bellicosity, it is critically important for the American public in general to understand that contrary to the endless, routine stenographic press propaganda with which we are targeted 24/7, the United States is entirely responsible for everything going on in Ukraine. Only by coming to understand that fact can people overcome their reflexive "damn the torpedoes" reaction to what they are falsely being told would be "giving in to nuclear blackmail" or "appeasing the new Hitler" were the US to back off.

The truth is, a backdown by the US/NATO would not be a surrender or failure of will in the face of Russian aggression. It would be, instead, a rational and honest reset of a perilous situation which the US/NATO has created for the sake of its operators' own financial or hegemonic or decades-long grudge-nurturing selfish interests, the continued pursuit of which will certainly harm multitudes of Americans and many others-- and very possibly will kill us all.

We all need to do everything possible to ensure that backdown takes place and that those who have created this dire situation are never again allowed in positions of trust and honor.

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...

Slouching Toward Endgame

by James Howard Kunstler

Since “Joe Biden” flat-out promised last February to “bring an end to the Nord Stream pipeline” — and let’s assume he meant both NS 1 and 2 — why seek further to unravel a fake mystery? Is our apparitional “president” not a man of his word? Of course, the machinery behind “Joe Biden” so far denies any credit for the consequential act, but who in this land is unaware that the US government’s default setting these days for answering anything is to lie?

The purpose of the act was likewise simple, plain, and obvious: to foreclose any possibility of Germany negotiating a separate peace with Russia around the financial and economic sanctions imposed by the USA over the Ukraine operation. Don’t you suppose it was clear to any German with half a brain that NATO’s joining of the sanctions was nothing less than a one-way ticket to Palookaville for Euroland? That it would mean goodbye to its advanced manufacturing economy and then goodbye to a comfortable, modern standard of living?

Not many weeks ago German foreign minister Annalena Baerbock told the world that Germany would support Ukraine (and US-driven NATO policy) “no matter what German voters think.” That was all for show, you understand, to maintain the flimsy pretense that NATO had any actual stake in whatever happens in Ukraine — as the result of the dumpster fire set there by America. At the same time, that very same German foreign ministry was sneaking through back channels to feel out the Russian foreign ministry on ways Germany might get Russian natgas on the down-low, through third parties, say, Turkey, buying time until the glorious day those Nord Stream pipelines might re-open and the former normality of German economic life would resume.

“Joe Biden” slammed the door on that pretty conclusively Monday, blowing up the two pipelines, a premier act of insanity by a US government fueled at every level and in every direction by psychotic strategic thinking. For starters, consider that the Nord Stream sabotage amounts to the leading member of NATO committing an act-of-war against the rest of NATO. What else do you call depriving most of Europe of the means to make a living — or merely to stay alive?

As it happens, Germany is in no position to answer this casus belli by going to war against the USA. Germany has a Potemkin military — America has made sure of that since 1945, the last time these Teutons of northern forests went batshit crazy against Western Civ. Seems to me that either Chancellor Olaf Scholz acknowledges this deadly affront to Germany and negates further participation in the NATO Ukraine idiocy, OR, within a few months he will face a violent political uprising from his own people and his government will fall — and not necessarily within the framework of any orderly parliamentary procedure. More like mobs in the streets… chaos… government buildings torched… officials strung-up — real insurrection, not the fake kind we hear about endlessly from the American Party of Chaos.

...and then proceed to the afterword below...

 

Afterword

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

-James Madison

KUNSTLER'S 'SLOUCHING TOWARD ENDGAME' is a bit long in the tooth by the standards of the day, being 16 days old already. But I went with it for this 'Other Voices' column because it packs a lot of very sound and enduringly significant thinking into its modest length; is pleasingly biting in all the right places; and has a great title.

Further, this piece is the very first thing I have ever read by Kunstler-- though already not the last. I am delighted to share this newly-found and very pleasing voice with all of you, and think it best to do so with an article I found especially compelling.

STILL, AS I SAID, 'Slouching Toward Endgame' is a bit old. Since Kunstler posted it, Ukrainian terrorists have exploded a bomb on the Kerch bridge, killing six, and the New York Times, of all voices, has revealed that US intelligence agencies believe that the Nazi usurpers in Kiev were responsible for the August murder of Darya Dugina, the daughter of a prominent Russian philosopher, in Moscow. Russia has begun responding to these mindless acts of violence-- beginning with widespread missile strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure.

What follows is anyone's guess, but US bellicosity has almost certainly pushed Russia from its limited police action providing protection and support for the independence aspirations of ethnic Russians in formerly east Ukraine to a new gloves-off demeanor. Lately I have seen Henry Kissinger's cautionary words quoted in a few places: "To be an enemy of the U.S. is dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal." The Ukrainians are about to really learn the truth of this, I'm afraid, just as are the Germans and other Europeans now facing a cold, dark winter.

IN LIGHT OF ALL THE FOREGOING, I have only this to say further: We Americans-- even those of us not in positions of power or high offices-- have a moral responsibility for what is done by Washington, both in other peoples' homes and in our own. We also have a Founder-provided means for imposing a much-needed corrective on those who do bad things in our names.

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 a challenge that'll put some real meaning behind all the effort you went through to get your credentials? Send me an email.

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!"

-Jesse Herron, Bill Of Rights Press, Fort Collins, Colorado

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...

(Edward Snowden, come home! It was all just a bad dream; there really is No Such Agency!)

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.
