"There are two distinct classes of men...those who pay taxes and those who receive and live upon taxes."

-Thomas Paine

 

You can't understand the present if you don't understand the past...

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

January 2- In 1788, Georgia becomes the fourth of the several states to ratify the United States Constitution and authorize the new version of the federal government.  In 1793, Russia and Prussia partition Poland, preliminary to Poland's disappearance from the maps of Europe two years later, with all it's territory divided between Russia, Prussia and Austria.  In 1882, John D. Rockefeller combines his oil concerns into the Standard Oil trust.  In 1920, the "Palmer Raids"-- federal assaults on political groups targeted for their opposition to conscription and other abuses of the Wilson administration during World War I-- ratchet up into the capture of thousands of what Wilson had described as "Hyphenated Americans (who) have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life".  In 1974, Richard Nixon signs a bill setting 55 MPH as the maximum speed limit on U.S. Highways, and coercing state governments to do the same or risk loss of grant money.

 

Anniversaries of interest for each day of this week will be found throughout the newsletter below.

 

NOTE: I don't even try to include in these anniversary compilations items involved in the "COVID-19" scam, hysteria and exploitation. There would be way too much to say about all that to suit this format. But find my summary of that history, and related observations posted throughout 2020 and 2021, here.

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.

So, Here We Are At "Resolution Day"...

A semi-annual "wake-up" call for today's real American men and women. You may have seen this before, but no matter. Read it again. It's that important.

 

RESOLUTION DAY.

That is,

  • "NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"

  • "NO MORE DENIAL Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"

  • "NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D BETTER NOT!" Day"

  • "NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST..." Day"

In short, here we are at,

  • "GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"

  • "GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"

I'm talking about,

  • "DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE OF LAW Day"

  • "FACE THE FACTS Day"

  • "NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...

MORE THAN ANYTHING, here we are at "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day" That's what the original "Resolution day" was all about. It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually didn't want them to have their rights.

It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively. Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of the Declaration of Independence, those operatives were their competitors. Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being practiced for their benefit.

IT WAS HARD for the colonists to reach that epiphany about their government. Because states exercise power (and partly also because they maintain an elaborate apologia dedicated to justifying that exercise as being for the good of the citizenry, or at least the way things must or are supposed to be), they come to be viewed as virtual parents in the hind-brains of those subject to that power. It is very hard for people to recognize and acknowledge that actual Mom and Dad are bad people. It is nearly as hard for people to recognize that the state under the influence of which they have been raised is corrupt and malicious.

But of course, sometimes Mom and Dad are indeed bad, and states usually are. And while Mom and Dad can and often do become remorseful, and proceed to reform and redemption, states are institutionally-incapable of remorse. The only remedy against a bad state is taking away its power. Eventually, after wasting all that time and effort on petitioning, politicking, lobbying and arguing, the American colonists admitted this truth on their Resolution Day and said, "No more talking-- it's time for walking!"

Bless them for abandoning their child-like view of the state and becoming grown-ups at last.

IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN if we modern Americans are equally deserving of blessings. We should be up to the task; after all, we have a much easier row to hoe than the colonists did.

While we, too, must adopt a grown-up understanding of the true character of the dangerous servant against which we have been wisely warned, our state is already bound down by the written law, thanks to the blood and sacrifices of our ancestors. All we have to do is recognize that the state is constantly struggling to escape any limitations placed upon it by that law, and to suppress and marginalize anyone revealing its bad behavior and anything showing how it can be put back into its chains.

Particularly, we have to recognize that the biggest and most important limitation put upon the state concerns its ability to take resources from individual citizens for its own use. It's this simple-- the one who controls the disposition of property is the one in charge.

Because it is so important, for decades the United States has been engaged in the cultivation and exploitation of myths about what limitations are placed upon it in regard to resource acquisition. Sadly, for most of those decades most Americans have fallen for the fictions.

Chief among these state-serving, people-harming myths is the truly absurd proposition that our grandparents amended the Constitution in 1913 to authorize the state's exploitation of their resources at its will, in defiance and rejection of the previous tax-limiting Constitutional rules under which the American people had become the freest and most prosperous in the history of the world.

THIS IS A MYTH! It never happened, and even the premier organs of the state itself have said so endlessly-- but quietly, so as to preserve the on-the-books harmony of the law while allowing the state (and its clients and cronies) to ruthlessly exploit anyone who doesn't know to look and remains in ignorance.

See the proof that this is a myth, here. Read the 1916 Cornell and Harvard Law Review articles on the Supreme Court's unanimous conclusions about the Sixteenth Amendment. See what Department of Treasury experts admit about the income tax. See what the Supreme Court continues to say about the amendment and the tax over the decades. Learn the real history of the tax and its antecedents.

See what the tax really falls upon and how it really works in application (and how and why it may have been misapplied to you in the past). See what those who have learned the long-obscured truth about the income tax have been accomplishing since that truth was revealed in 2003.

Then go here and see how the state has been struggling to keep you from knowing any of this.

After you take these enlightening excursions, recognize that every single person or institution that would lose prestige, power or profits by acknowledging the truth about the tax can be expected to lie about the subject if queried. So will every interest that sees itself benefitting from the existence of a mammoth state (which might even include those who make their living complaining about the mammoth state, or the supposed evils of the income tax).

Every one of these persons and interests are today's equivalents of the invested promoters and defenders of the "divine right of kings" myth that kept people enthralled and exploited in the colonists' time.

But also recognize that now knowing the truth, the power is in your hands. The responsibility is, too.

Rise to deserve the blessings of liberty.

Make this year's "Resolution Day" real by making it a personal Declaration Day-- a day on which you resolve to act relentlessly on behalf of liberty and the rule of law, and to hound everyone you can reach into doing the same.

Do You Think The FBI Deserves A New HQ?

Or, instead, should the old one be torn down, and that's that, with the rubble left where it lays as a message to other present-day criminals and an inspiration to future Americans?

A CABAL OF OFFICE-HOLDING SWINE IN CONGRESS has undertaken to disenfranchise the American people by way of an "Omnibus Spending Bill" just signed by vacationing Joe Biden a few days ago. The measure usurps the authority of a newly-elected House of Representatives by cementing into place for the next year the ruinous priorities of the Democrats from whom the American people withdrew such power in the November election.

Unsurprisingly, the heinous assault on democracy was embraced by pretty much every Democrat currently befouling a seat in the House and the Senate. This deeply dark expression of contempt for the sovereignty of the People was given comfort by nominally-Republican House members Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Rodney Davis, Fred Upton, Chris Jacobs, John Katko, Brian Fitzpatrick, Jaime Herrera Butler and Steve Womack, although their collusion was purely perverse "virtue-signaling", since those votes made no difference in the outcome.

More serious was the collusion of Mitch McConnell, Roy Blunt, John Boozman, Shelley Capito, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Tom Cotton, Lindsey Graham, Jim Inhofe, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Mike Rounds, Richard Shelby, John Thune, Roger Wicker and Todd Young in the Senate. The crimes of these eighteen people were actually necessary for the lame-duck session usurpation to go forward.

The pretext for the offense, expressed explicitly in some quarters and implicitly in others, is that the new Congress couldn't be relied upon to spend on the military-- and especially on belligerence against Russia (by way of the US-instigated proxy war in Ukraine)-- in the fashion the conspirators feel is appropriate. The proposition is that these perps know better what is good for us than we do ourselves, and are authorized to make that call.

They are NOT authorized to make that call, of course, and this is plainly an invalid justification for subverting the will of the American people (as ANY "justification" would be...).

It is also remarkably, and very disturbingly, akin to what is generally understood to be the unspoken pretext for the Kennedy assassination just over 59 years ago. (See the "Other Voices" afterword further down on this page for more on that...)

Every American who cares about the rule of law should pin these names on the refrigerator door and keep them in mind. This will facilitate punishing these villains over the years going forward, at the ballot-box and in any other lawful and proper way.

RETRIBUTION FOR CRIMES AGAINST the core American principle of popular sovereignty aside, there is another aspect of this sordid affair to be considered. This one is of a more pleasing demeanor.

As noted, the crime here takes the form of a spending bill. That spending binge includes not only a vast amount for the military-industrial complex and the proxy war against Russia through the puppet regime installed in Ukraine, but also many, many other agenda items. These range from the frivolous and corrupt to the culturally and civilizationally ruinous.

Included are some which are simply insulting-- the best example of which being the $400 million allocated for a new FBI headquarters building. Over the course of the last two months, the Twitter files revealed by Elon Musk through the postings of Matt Taibbi, Bari Weiss, Michael Shellenberger and others have proven that the FBI has been deliberately subverting the American political landscape, rigging elections and deceiving the American people on a massive scale with selective disinformation and censorship campaigns.

This comes on top of the more slowly but steadily trickling-out revelations from various quarters of frauds upon courts and other crimes related to the FBI "Russiagate" collusion scheme by which the 2016 presidential election was neutralized to a very great extent and the stage was set for a takeover of Congress in 2018 and of the White House in 2020 (helped in great part by another agency-nurtured fraud involving the "COVID-19 pandemic").

All told, the FBI has lately been starkly exposed as a relentless enemy of the American people and of the Constitutional structure we erected for the exercise of our sovereignty and the securing of our rights, and hence, this observation's title question: Do you think the FBI deserves a new HQ?

I think most Americans would answer that first question with a resounding "NO!" This, of course, prompts the next question: Why, then, are you volunteering to pay for a new HQ for the FBI, or why are you letting others do so-- unwillingly, but also unwitting of the fact that it is within their lawful power to refuse?

WE HAVE JUST ENTERED A NEW YEAR, and are, as noted in the opening article to this newsletter, in the time for resolutions and declarations. More than in any year prior, this is that time in regard to our political lives.

We have reached a point in America's history in which corruption has become so widespread and so deep as to see our foundational principles subverted and spat upon by government agencies like the FBI with a majority of our purported representatives in elected office cheering on the criminals. We can no longer plausibly rely on the momentum of our virtuous past to keep us squeaking along with a semblance of critical liberties and only tolerable and sustainable levels of parasitic exploitation of our complacency or co-option by the burgeoning army of predators we have let grow up within our midst.

We no longer have the luxury to patiently wait for white knights to finally appear on the political stage and look after the interests-- OUR interests-- which we ourselves have been neglecting in timidity or misplaced confidence in a system said even by those who erected it to not be self-sustaining, but rather to need constant and jealous maintenance and guardianship against subversion.

The now revealed long-running and systematic illegal actions of the FBI (and by plain implication, the overall Deep State of which it is a part)-- and the revelation of the embedded rot within the dominating political and media structures upon which we would normally rely for a remedy-- has made continued half-heartedness in defense of the liberties and the rule of law upon which our happiness and indeed, our very survival depends, no longer a viable option. We must turn to a whole-hearted effort, and we must do so now.

The whole-heartedness we must embrace may well be forced to become "kinetic" at some point, and no good American should shy away from that possibility. In the end, all political power rests on physical power. The ballots we use for determining who will be represented in positions of authority and decision-making are, at bottom, used simply as a much-preferred substitute for the bullets which otherwise would be called upon to prove whose positions are embraced by the majority.

But the "kinetic" remedy is the least-desirable one, and need not be inevitable. All that is necessary to avoid that undesirable option is to make clear to enough Americans that even though reliance on the now-endlessly-proven-unreliable institutional political structure is misplaced, there is another peaceful road to restoring our cherished liberty-and-law respecting real Constitutional republic. That alternative is the resumption by American men and women of their once universally-exercised and now a few generations-forgotten individual power over the public purse.

I know that I sound like a broken record in saying what I have just said. I say the same thing constantly.

Every single "Other Voices" column on these pages says that same thing, applying it to various different issues in the news each time, but always with the same underlying message. But I do this because really, as much as many of you reading these words may have yourselves embraced the truth and the power of which I speak, that liberating, state (and Deep State)-restraining truth remains the most deeply-hidden enormous secret in America.

No matter how much I continue to demonstrate and prove in every manner possible the truth of what I have shared in CtC and on this website for now just shy of twenty years, that astonishing information has no foothold in even alt-media, much less any place in the mainstream. Have you ever wondered why that is?

Have you ever thought about what YOU could do to change that, and have you been thinking lately about how critically-important it is-- now more than ever-- that such a change be accomplished? I wish you would.

Even the most crazy notions embraced by the lunatic fringe, based on readily-demonstrated fallacies or delusions and with no practical evidence to show of their soundness get a thousand well-produced, earnestly-promoted videos posted on their behalf. Where is even ONE such video on behalf of the thoroughly-supported and endlessly-demonstrated truth of CtC other than the meager few my poor talents and resources in that regard are able to produce, all of which end up with a pathetic paucity of views and likes even after years online?

Even the most crazy notions are promoted in vigorously-made-seconded posts and comments on posts in social media and elsewhere online, exposing others to those notions and garnering visibility boosts from the platforms on which they appear, furthering their reach and impact in a snowball effect. My own posts sharing and showing the veracity of CtC to anyone who finds them get no comments at all, much less any conversations going, and thus enjoy none of those visibility benefits.

DON'T GET ME WRONG, I'm not complaining. All that I have just said about CtC's lack of visibility has been true for more than ten years, since the efforts to suppress its revelations escalated to my contrived prosecution in 2009, and yet I have continued to plug along. I will continue to do so.

But I don't think we have the luxury of just moseying at that kind of pace out of the peril we face today.

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."

-United States Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

We're well into twilight, people. It is time and past time to get seriously busy and get everyone in the country who is not part of the problem active in being part of the solution by bleeding the monster dry-- which is the only thing that will now do the job, as should be obvious to all in light of the institutional and political corruption now on display with the recent revelations of FBI malfeasance and the cover it is being given by the dominant political and media organizations.

Please! Start speaking with one voice, loudly and incessantly, brooking no distractions or divergences. SHARE THIS FILE with as many as you can in whatever way that you can bolstered by the most strongly-worded exhortation on its behalf as you can design.

Make those videos. Post those comments. Make CtC's message the most talked-about subject on the internet.

The alternative is the looming darkness.

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

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...

...an important action item opportunity.

FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to which most of the country has been subjected under the fraudulent mantle of COVID-19 mitigation should not be allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing. The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.

And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):

[Name], since March of 2020 you've watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.

YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has been nurturing in the average mind for decades).

Those things having not yet happened, you should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.

Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to show it to you.

Read this little two-page document. Click on the links at the end.

When you're done with that reading, you'll know what to do next.

BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and you don't call them out for it.

If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in that delusional bubble.

As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they certainly WOULD do something like that.

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

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

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...

Biden's Latest JFK Document Dump Is A JOKE

by Kit Knightly

Waiting for a government – any government – to release their "secret" files is a waste of your time, and reading anything they eventually publish is doubly so.

If you didn’t learn that from the nothing-burger that was the 28 pages on 9/11, or the pathetic exercise in revisionism that made up the Afghanistan Papers…you should definitely have learned it today.

Yes, Joe Biden’s administration has just released their promised "secret" JFK papers.

Turns out that Oswald acted alone.

I know, I was shocked too.

Further, the release dials back on the (very slight) anti-Russia messaging of last year’s release.

In December 2021, the previous batch of "secret" files revealed Oswald met with a KGB agent in the days running up to the assassination.

The latest batch reassures us that Oswald never worked for the KGB, and that the Russians thought he was “too crazy” to recruit.

One gets the impression that has as much to do with managing propaganda positioning over the war in Ukraine as anything else. Either way, it's a ridiculously transparent attempt to reinforce the "lone wolf" lie.

"He was too crazy and unstable even for the Russians!"

Laughable.

Further, one particular "secret" memo claims…

"the Central Intelligence Agency has no indication that Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald ever knew each other, were associated, or might have been connected in any manner".

Yes, before Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald they were apparently "not connected in any manner". He had never met Oswald before the assassination, and barely had any idea who he was when he shot him on November 24th.

This means the current "official story" is that Ruby randomly chose to attend the press conference where Oswald spoke on the evening of November 22nd, despite not being a member of the press.

During this press conference, Ruby correctly pointed out Oswald had joined the "fair play for Cuba committee" (presumably an inspired guess, seeing as they did not know one another).

Then, two days later and on a complete whim, he decided to sneak back into the police station carrying a gun and shoot a man he had never met for no reason at all, in the parking lot of a police station, while surrounded by police officers.

That’s what these "secret files" tell us…the same ridiculous story as the very unsecret Warren Commission.

So, yet again, we see just how pointless these long-awaited government releases are, and how they are only ever used to reinforce the official narrative.

It was always going to be that way.

Afterword

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

-Voltaire

I DON'T OFTEN WRITE ABOUT the JFK assassination, even though it was a profoundly significant event in my life. The murder took place when I was an eight-year-old child being raised in a very Catholic environment by ardent Kennedy supporters and even being in class in my Catholic school when the assassination was announced by horrified and grief-stricken nuns. (For those unaware, Kennedy was the first Catholic president of a country in which Catholics had been broadly discriminated against since its founding, as well as being young, charismatic to an extreme, and, at that point, appeared firmly set on a widely-popular course of dampening the increasingly ugly and dangerous Cold War while also beginning to indicate an intention to withdraw the US from the escalating Viet Nam conflict.)

In fact, the last time I had really touched on the subject in any depth was all the way back in 2018 in this speculation regarding possible LBJ culpability in both John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy's murders (which was then followed by this commentary, which I recommend to everyone, especially now that the JFK matter is back in the public mind). Otherwise the assassination is only touched upon in a few posts like this one concerning repeated presidential derelictions of their duty to faithfully execute the law at 22 U.S.C. §§ 2799aa and 2799aa-1.

Now, however, the renewed evidence of Deep State (CIA division) assassination and cover-up culpability offered by its continuing refusal to release all the relevant documents must be considered in light of the revelations of long-running heinous FBI subversions and crimes which are dropping right and left. Taken together, both serve as stark and ominous illuminations of the present-day peril the rest of us face for allowing these venomous serpents to grow large within our midst.

That peril is dire, indeed, and fatal if allowed to persist.

HOWEVER, AT THE SAME TIME that we muster anger at those who have abused large-scale public power we must also look in the mirror. The ugly fact is, we are not just the victims of these malefactors. We are their enablers, as well-- if we have not stood up and taken control of how much of our wealth facilitates their offices and their actions.

Happily we CAN stand up and take control. We can defund the state from which the rot most often spreads, using a Founder-provided means for imposing a much-needed corrective on those who do bad things in our names and with our resources.

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 and 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..."

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

"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."

-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.

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...

Some minor vandalism was committed, and one of the protestors, unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, was shot dead by a Capitol Police officer once inside without warning and while presenting no threat. Four other protestors died outside the building of natural causes or, in one case, of being crushed by a panicked crown fleeing a gas attack by the police.  The false-flag event was immediately characterized as an "insurrection" and then used by the perpetrators as a pretext for demonizing anyone objecting to the Democrat/progressive/Deep State agenda.

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.
