United States proxy "Afghan Northern Alliance" takes Kabul, having driven the
Taliban from the capital on the pretext that it was harboring Osama Bin Laden,
when, in fact, the Taliban had offered to turn Bin Laden over to the United
States upon presentation of at least some evidence of his involvement in the
events of 9/11. The events of 9/11 were never listed by the FBI on its Bin
Laden "Wanted" poster, with the explanation reported to be a "lack of hard
evidence" of his involvement in those events. In 2002, the United States House
of Representatives votes down a proposal to create an independent commission to
investigate the events of 9/11.

So, Last Tuesday Was Election
Let's do a "first impressions"
IT SEEMS TO ME that if some in a
society or polity can be convinced that they have
been cheated (or otherwise aggrieved) by the rest
(whether "the rest" is considered as individuals or
institutions), while infected with moral relativism
(that is, "situational ethics", by which whether an
act is wrong depends on the perceived reasons or
justifications for its commission), that some will
not hesitate to cheat (in vote-counting or whatever)
in order to accomplish a "redress" of their
perceived grievance. That cheating will (or can) be
directed at putting (or keeping) in power those who
pander to the "aggrieved" group.
Likewise, convincing gullible segments
of the population that denying power to the most
vocal hobgoblin floggers will bring about the end of
the world (i.e., through "climate change" or a dire
virus), or that one's political opponents are agents
of a hostile foreign power, etc. will make those
gullible segments open, if not prone, to cheating.
Heck, if I firmly believed
that a fair election would result in political power
falling into the hands of people who would use it to
bring about the end of the world, including the
suffering and death of my children and
grandchildren, I would cheat-- or at minimum
look the other way while others did so-- in order to
prevent that electoral outcome. You would, too.
And of course, all those preps, all
that groundwork, have been indisputably and
unmistakably underway for many years. How then can
anyone observing the abundant overt indicators of
specific acts of cheating (by which is encompassed
rigging as well as outright fraud) harbor any doubts
that such cheating is, in fact, what is going on?
How, for instance, can anyone doubt
that the slow, seemingly complicated and chaotic,
and otherwise inexplicable whack-a-mole vote counts
in Maricopa and Clark counties going on last week
and into this week, are cheating events underway?
How about the events illustrated here:
Look familiar? The same extraordinary
jinks in the totals-- again, favoring the Democrat
candidate, as such things always seem to do-- were
recorded two years ago. See them on display as part
Or, how about what is shown and
here? (A ridiculous "fact-check" pretense has
been offered against the photos of late-night ballot
dumps in this article, arguing that these were just
the innocent arrivals of drop-box ballots, which
come in late because the boxes are scattered
throughout the big city of Detroit and take hours to
collect. The truth is that by law, drop boxes are
emptied every day from the start of early voting,
preventing any large accumulation of ballots to be
picked up at 1:30AM the day after election day, AND
the boxes must be shut and secured at 8:00 PM on
election day, which is when they would be emptied
for the last time and the ballots delivered to the
And let's be clear, though it should be
unnecessary to spell out: electoral cheating only
happens when the cheaters don't actually have the
votes needed to win without cheating. Cheating is
actually the execution of a coup. It is an
insurrection (as opposed to a protest against
cheating, which is not); and there's plenty of
reason to conclude there's been a lot of it going on
over the last few years.
IN LIGHT OF THE FOREGOING, and the fact
that I, for one, don't believe that we've had a
legitimate national election for at least the last
few years and I know I am far from alone, I think
it's time that this country abandon the use of
secret ballots. There is no Constitutional
requirement for such secrecy, and frankly, I can
think of nothing that is gained from it, but much
that is lost by it.
With the secrecy, everyone is left at
the mercy of the inevitable partisans doing the
counting (which often appears better expressed as
the "counting"). Results, once announced, are
extremely difficult to verify, and during the long
stretches while any such verification effort is
underway, the declared results settle in and develop
constituencies of interest resolute in resisting any
dislodgement, and the less-engaged public mind
integrates the declared results into its world-view,
making challenges, however well-founded in the end,
seem strident, discordant and petulant.
At a minimum, then, secret ballots
result in skepticism if not outright suspicion of
the declared results in any such vote.
At the same time the secrecy offers no
meaningful benefits. Does anyone really think that
my discovery that the neighbor with the Biden/Harris
bumper sticker voted Democrat will come as a
revelation, or prompt previously unprompted
retaliation of some sort for his wrong-headed
politics? And while I might learn of the
less-already-obvious affiliations of another
neighbor by way of an open vote, so what? I am
already told by the vote-counters that I live amidst
partisans, many of whom are not of my camp.
In the current state of political
polarization (brought about largely by the hobgoblin
flogging described above) where any particular
person stands politically can be instantly discerned
by the most rudimentary scrutiny or inquiry, and
very few people would hesitate for an instant to
declare their affiliations or views if given a
chance to do so. Indeed, the more seriously anyone
takes or holds to their political views, the more
eager he or she is to exclaim them.
Openness, on the other hand-- meaning
the recording and public display of each voter's
identity and ballot-- offers clear benefits.
For example, as those who have engaged
in organized politics (such as by participation as a
Democrat or Republican delegate, for instance) will
remember, there is procedure in the Parliamentarian
rules known as "division" which can be (and often
is) invoked to definitively settle the question in
any contentious vote. It's simple: all favoring the
motion stand and assemble on one side of the room
while those opposed assemble on the other side of
the room. Sometimes which group is in the majority
is visually obvious, and if not, the groups are
counted while standing in assembly.
There is no secrecy, and there are no
questions. The winning side is quickly made apparent
and indisputable to everyone.
Open ballots in a large-scale election,
while not providing for everyone to assemble in
person, get far closer to that ideal than secret
ballots can even aspire to do. With the ballots all
available for inspection in their entirety
(digitally, of course, as well as archived in the
original paper form), anyone skeptical or suspicious
(or academically interested, whatever) could sort
and count and total-- and prove the results-- to his
or her heart's content. Invalid voters could be
culled from the totals and final results could be
verified and corrected, if need be.
What's more, I could then know
how my vote was recorded. I don't know if
this has ever troubled you, but I have no
real evidence on which I can rely that my vote
entered the fray as I intended it to do. I dearly
wish I did.
All told, the relevant question is
this: How would an open ballot change any
significant element of the status quo, other than
doing so for the better by making elections more
trustworthy? I think the answer favors abandoning
the secret ballot.
Now, leaving aside the near
certainty that Republicans actually did much better than is reflected in the declared outcomes
The Republican message in this cycle,
for the most part, sucked. Republicans should have
been promising-- in one voice-- an end to all
engagement (giveaways, political support, sanctions,
etc.) with Ukraine. They should have been
promising-- in one voice-- to criminalize the
mutilation of children and the promotion of
manifestly lunatic "trans" ideology. They should
have been promising-- in one voice-- to determine
and impose accountability for the manipulations,
abuses, exploitations and gas-lighting conducted in
the name of the "COVID-19 Pandemic".
Republicans should have been
promising-- in one voice-- to impeach Merrick
Garland for abuses by the FBI and DOJ generally,
Alejandro Majorkas for his failure to secure the
border and his absurd lying to Congress about that
subject, Pete Buttigieg for taking a six-week
"paternity leave" while a transportation-rooted
supply-chain problem metastasized last year (and for
being a useless national embarrassment overall), and
forcing Russia into an invasion of Ukraine that
the Biden administration has since leveraged into
massive harm to American prosperity and the brink of
a nuclear holocaust.
Republicans should have burned into the
public brain footage of frozen windmills in Texas
frozen Texans. Add in
Gavin Newsom's request to Californians this
summer to not use electricity and explain that this
is what Democrats have in mind for all but the
unaffected wealthy. Finish with a montage of every
sky-is-falling nutcase warning of the last fifty
years (global cooling, global warming, mass
starvation, no more polar bears, every Paul Ehrlich
apocalyptic prediction-- with dates...) and the
final line "...but Climate Change-- now, that's a
And so on, and so on...
The problem for Republicans, of course,
is that so many of those in office are as guilty of
supporting (or persistently overlooking) the bad
behavior skewered by these messages as are
Democrats. It's way past time for the Republican
party to stop standing for issues about which its
leadership is enthused (or expensively lobbied)
and start standing for issues about which its grass
roots are enthused. This means it's way
past time for new Republican leadership.
Though it will pain some folks to hear
it, the need for new Republican leadership doesn't
just mean canning Mitch McConnell and Kevin
McCarthy. It also means that
it's past time for the Republican party to gently
usher Donald Trump to the sidelines. The man's time
There is no question that Trump was
unfairly (indeed, corruptly) hampered in his time in
office, and robbed of his re-election. But that
said, he was never a great president. Other than
pandering to Israel, Trump had no real agenda, and
got very little done that mattered, even while
having Republican control of Congress.
Further, a good deal of the reason the
hampering of Trump's time in office was successful
was his penchant for appointing the very Deep State
sociopaths he had won the presidency by condemning,
thereby surrounding himself with enemies and
embarrassments like Nikki Haley, Gina Haspel,
Christopher Wray, John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, William
Barr and others, some of whom continue to haunt us
More to the immediate point, though, as
a former president, and a
wannabe-president-again, Trump is much less than
great. In fact he is proving to be both divisive and
Republicans need to clear the field for
folks like Ron DeSantis, Rand Paul, Thomas Massie
and Mike Lee. This means promising to get to the
bottom of the 2020 election rigging (and meaning
it), while also wishing Trump a fond farewell, with
encouragement to take it gracefully, but without

many others whose success debunks the "candidate quality"

EVERYONE'S FAVORITE ALPHABET AGENCY has
lately been ramping up an annoying pair of fog and
intimidation generators in the way of "proposals" to
change the "tax due" or the amount withheld in
regard to educated tax returns (and for all I know,
non-educated filings, as well). These typically come
in the form of LTR525s in the former case and CP21B
notices in the latter.
Both types of correspondence seem
intended to suggest that the agency has valid
grounds for its self-serving proposals, while
nonetheless implicitly acknowledging that neither
proposal can be implemented without the agreement of
the filer (and both explaining to the filer how to
register disagreement). Both proposals are plainly
designed and dispatched in order to confuse and
unsettle filers new to the wide and wild landscape
of liberation-- new, that is, to once again seeing
horizons lost to most Americans of the last several

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.
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

(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
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about

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.

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
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...

As I write this on Election Day, I obviously don’t
know the outcomes of the U.S. midterm elections. As
you read this, you probably do. Most of my
libertarian friends with whom I have spoken recently
are hoping for a Republican victory.
I am not so sure I agree
with them. Former Rep. Ron Paul, the living American
I admire most, is not so sure either. He opined
recently in an essay arguing that with the exception
of blind opposition to all things Joe Biden — thus
slowing the pace of increased federal spending — the
Republicans are not much better than the Democrats.
This argument is in line with my own, which is that
we don’t have a two-party system in America. We
really have one political party — the Big Government
Party. It has a Republican wing that likes war,
corporate welfare, tax increases and borrowing, and
a Democratic wing that likes war, individual
welfare, tax increases and borrowing. Both wings
enacted legislation to frustrate political
competition, and both want more than anything just
to stay in power.
In Congress, both wings of Big Government believe
that they can right any wrong, regulate any
behavior, tax any event and interfere in any
process, whether the Constitution authorizes their
legislation or not. Yet, Congress is a creature of
the Constitution. The Constitution gives Congress
only 16 discrete powers and one catch-all — to make
all laws necessary and proper to effectuate the 16.
The Constitution came about when the 13 American
colonies seceded from England in 1776 by violence
and became 13 independent countries that referred to
themselves as states.
Those 13 states formed the current central
government in 1789 by ceding away the 16 discrete
areas of governance — having to do with nationhood,
not central planning — to the new federal
Through the course of wars — the War of 1812, the
wars against Native Americans, Lincoln’s War Between
the States, the Spanish-American War, World War I,
World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the
wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — the federal
government not only exported violence abroad; it
sapped liberty at home and grew exponentially.
That’s what war does. It doesn’t spread liberty; it
spreads killing. It enhances the health of the
government because it induces higher taxes, a bigger
military-industrial complex, nativist patriotism on
the part of the masses, repression of civil
liberties and a general compliance on the part of
politicians. Both wings of Big Government have been
complicit in this.
My Republican-voting libertarian friends need to be
reminded what the GOP has done in the modern era. It
has given us the Federal Reserve Act and its banker
friends who collectively destroy the free market
(nowhere countenanced by the Constitution),
abolished money backed by the Gold Standard (which
the Constitution requires), enacted the Bank Privacy
Act (which permits the feds to subpoena bank
records), enacted the wildly unconstitutional
Patriot Act (which permits FBI warrantless spying on
third-party custodians of records; like health care
providers, lawyers, financial advisers, utility
companies, computer service and telecom providers,
and credit card companies).
The same Republicans have given us the Department of
Education and its 4,400 bureaucrats (nowhere
countenanced by the Constitution), the Department of
Homeland Security and its 240,000 federal cops
(nowhere countenanced by the Constitution), the
National Security Agency and its 60,000 domestic
spies (nowhere countenanced by the Constitution),
the CIA and its 21,000 foreign spies and its secret
wars (nowhere countenanced by the Constitution), the
unconstitutional FISA Court and its domestic
surveillance, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
and their $2 trillion tab (neither of which was
declared by Congress).
In 110 years, the Big Government Party in Congress
has spent $31 trillion more than the feds have
collected in tax dollars. Thus, borrowing began in
earnest under President Woodrow Wilson, who borrowed
$30 billion to pay for American military involvement
in World War I, a useless war that brought us the
horrors of World War II, and prior to which the
United States was not even arguably threatened by
any of the combatants.
Wilson’s borrowing became typical of the practice of
both Democratic and Republican presidents. The $30
billion has been refinanced but not retired. Thus
far, the government has paid its borrowers $15
billion in interest on the $30 billion principal it
still owes. Only Big Government pays a 50% interest
“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

NICE WORK BY ANDREW NAPOLITANO in this commentary. He is so
disturbingly but soberingly right in all that he says.
One item mentioned which is merits a
bit of follow-up is Napolitano's observation about
the Bank Privacy Act, which prompts me to wonder how
many people understand that every government
intrusion into any American's financial affairs is
predicated on the false notion of those affairs
having an income tax relevance... See the discussion
of Stanwood v. Green and United States
v. LaSalle Nat'l Bank
at this link for some useful insight and
Otherwise, Napolitano has done a great
job of cueing up what I always say after any commentary

behavior by American government actors: We Americans-- even those
of us not in positions of power or high offices-- have a moral
responsibility for what is done by every such
