The Cowbird State

Guess whose baby you've been feeding...

SO, I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU to one of the more unlovely creatures vying with all the others for a place in the sun at the expense of the rest. I speak of the parasite known as the "cowbird".

The cowbird is an avian unremarkable in appearance. But this bird's behavior is truly out of the ordinary.

You see, during the nesting season, the cowbird watches other birds build their nests and lay their eggs. When it sees a suitable nest left unattended by hardworking parents who have gone off for food, the cowbird sneaks in, tumbles out one or more of the existing eggs and lays its own egg in that nest, repeating this with several host nests in the immediate neighborhood.

The idea is that the nest builders will be deceived (or at least sufficiently uncertain as to what's what). These "host" victims end up incubating the cowbird's chicks.

This behavior by the cowbird is not mere mindless instinct at work. The parasitic program is so deliberate and vicious that the cowbird will even watch the host nests to see that things go as planned. If victims detect the deception and tumble out an alien egg, the cowbird is known to then sneak in and destroy remaining native eggs, apparently to discourage further removals.

When the brood begins to hatch, the cowbird chicks are first to emerge. Thus, the alien invaders get the first meals brought to the nest by the hosts.

The cowbird chicks continue their optimized exploitation going forward. As part of the program, cowbirds choose small songbirds as their prey, meaning the cowbird chicks are bigger than any surviving nestmates. The cowbird chicks are aggressive, as well. For both reasons, the aliens continue to get the lion's share of the food throughout the nesting period.

The cowbirds thrive, while their victims do all the work and yet see their own offspring wither and die.

THIS COWBIRD THING IS A PRETTY UGLY STORY, RIGHT? Well, I hate to say it, but this is America's story for the last 80 years.

For all that time, the America that our forefathers built for us with hard work and much sacrifice has been increasingly taken over and exploited by a predatory, parasitic alien interest. This vicious alien parasite is the Leviathan state, whose operators and beneficiaries figured out 80 years ago how to get YOU to pay THEIR bills and feed THEIR children, at the expense of your own.

LET ME CLARIFY: 250 or so years ago, we built a nest for OUR baby-- a constitutionally-limited republic erected to secure the individual rights of Americans from all infringement, foreign and domestic.

"The details of this new world, were not as yet clearly depicted; but faith ran high that a better world than any that had ever been known could be built where authority was distrusted and held in constant scrutiny; where the status of men flowed from their achievements and from their personal qualities, not from distinctions ascribed to them at birth; and where the use of power over the lives of men was jealously guarded and severely restricted. It was only where there was this kind of defiance, this refusal to truckle, this distrust of all authority, political or social, that institutions would express human aspirations, not crush them."

-Bernard Bailyn, The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution

But some 80 years ago OUR baby was tumbled out of the nest and replaced by THEIR baby-- a big, hungry, aggressive, crony-and-client-serving, paranoia-generating-and-exploiting, family-destroying-and-identity-politics-nurturing "national security and nanny state".

It is that monster baby-- the enemy of our own-- that we have been feeding ever since.

Our nest has become a little shop of horrors in which we fear for our lives as we watch our liberties, our rights and the tattered remnants of the rule of law wither and die. At the same time, the monster grows ever bigger, ever more aggressive, and ever more dangerous and destructive.

HAPPILY, THE STORY DOESN'T END HERE-- or doesn't have to. You see, the "cowbird state" thing is not an exact model of the actual "cowbird" thing.

In the actual cowbird model, the songbirds whose nests have been invaded are driven by instinct to find and deliver food to chicks in the nest, even though the chicks might be alien invaders. But the "cowbird state" thing isn't directed at songbirds.

WE are human beings. WE can overcome even aggressive and scary demands that we engage in self-destructive behavior.

WHAT'S MORE, those aggressive demands for food by the alien baby-- and the danger of violent reaction by its parents if those demands are denied-- are actually just bluster in the case of the "cowbird state" scheme. They rely for their effect entirely on widespread misunderstanding of the legal landscape in which this story has been playing out since it began in the 1940s-- that is, a widespread misunderstanding of the income tax laws (which has, unsurprisingly, been carefully and diligently cultivated by the cowbird parents).

Under that misunderstanding, Americans have been led to believe that they can legally be compelled to feed the alien baby, unless they are willing to forego earning a living, and let themselves and their own children starve. But this is not true.

“The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd.”

-Bertrand Russell

In fact, under the law as written, every American can, as an individual choice, stop nurturing the monster in our nest.

Under the law as written, every American can choose to simply let the evil beast starve and shrink and wither away until it can ultimately be tossed over the side. Under the law as written, every American can give to his or her own children what has been going into the monster baby's insatiable maw-- and the "cowbird parents" can do nothing whatever about it.

"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’

INDEED, THE ONLY REASON we have ever grown the alien baby within our midst is fear born of that carefully-cultivated widespread ignorance about the income tax. That ignorance has saddled each American-- even those who recognized the importance of withholding the baby food-- with the belief that his neighbors all embrace the cowbird baby, and would, and legally could, punish him for refusing to cough up cowbird-food on demand.

Each of those neighbors behave as they do, in turn, out of the same ignorance and the same resultant fears.

All told, the "cowbird state" scheme became a perfect scam the moment the ignorance on which it relies reached a critical threshold of distribution.

But the scheme remains a mere tissue of lies. All that is needed to shred the evil thing is a stiff wind of truth, raised by those who have come to know it.



"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it."

-Thomas Paine


NOTE: Let me clarify what is meant by "the storm". This does NOT mean going into a courtroom or an IRS agent's office (whether in person or otherwise) and slapping down a studly brief laying out the truth about the tax.

Rather, "the storm" means a blizzard of awakening insertions into the public consciousness from every quarter; a swarm of attacks in the public square on the edifice of lies; and the unveiling of a blazing light by thousands of candles all at the same time, illuminating the path to the truth to as many Americans as possible. "Storm" should be taken in same sense as in the expression "storming the castle". Here is a good example of real "storming".

The studly brief thing is important, and when an actual legal contest has arisen, such things cannot be foregone. If nothing else, when the storm has done its work and wrongs are being made right, a failure to have preserved and defended ones claims by such briefs and other conventional pleadings will leave one with no recourse.

But only the mass awakening of the American people will throw water on the witch. It is toward that mass awakening that the most energy should be devoted, and in the biggest and fastest way possible.

A Nice Victory For A New Warrior

Nick Audette shares a fine video testimonial and unambiguous documentation of the truth about the tax!

Here is the return Nick filed; and here is the complete refund-- with interest-- which he described:

GOTTA LOVE THIS HERO!! Nick stands tall in the ranks of all the good American men and women who are doing the Founders' work by binding down an out-of-control state with the chains of the Constitution.

Nick's victory joins those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here. Each constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

Don't you wish your victories were proudly posted, too?

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

That's all there is to it!

AND, HEY! DON'T YOU WISH YOUR INSPIRING BEING-THE-STORM VIDEO was posted, like Nick's? This is easy to do, and very important (plus it can get you some great losthorizons swag!). See (and carefully read in their entirety) these guidelines and encouragements.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

The Virtual Certainty Of Foreign Interference In The 2020 Elections

...thanks to a decades-long corruption of America's political class.

GEORGE WASHINGTON FAMOUSLY WARNED AMERICA against harboring affections for any foreign state-- even going so far as to disparage actual alliances if for more than the brief duration of hot conflict. Steeped in the wisdom of long experience, and with no personal agenda to promote, Washington used his last address to the American people at the end of his presidency to advise his heirs as to a prudent, productive, and liberty-protective foreign policy.

Washington warned against both affections for other nations and animosity towards other nations (the entire text of his warning can be seen here). For purposes of this article I am going to editorially consolidate and focus solely on the "affection" part:

"Nothing is more essential than that passionate attachments for particular Nations should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its affection, which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.

"A passionate attachment of one Nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite Nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest, in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter, without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite Nation of privileges denied to others, which is apt doubly to injure the Nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained; and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens, (who devote themselves to the favorite nation,) facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation."

I need hardly spend the pixels to name Israel as the nation on behalf of which America's political class has subjected the rest of us to the "variety of evils" against which George Washington warns us.

IT IS TRUE THAT BRITAIN shares with us most closely our cultural background, and is viewed with affection by many Americans for that reason. But in practical terms Britain is held in contempt and treated as a U.S. poodle. The same is true of the other Anglophone nations.

Similarly, United States policy toward Saudi Arabia and Egypt can be criticized as overly forgiving. George W. Bush was famously photographed walking hand in hand with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah in 2005. Donald Trump has been known to go dancing with Abdullah's brethren, and heaps praise upon Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who seized power in Egypt in a coup overthrowing the popularly-elected government of Mohamed Morsi and featuring the murder of thousands of protestors.

But while some with interests in the benefitting industries self-servingly appreciate Saudi Arabia's arms purchases, and both Saudi Arabia and Egypt are viewed with some favor due to their (often) sotto voce cooperation with (or perhaps, subordination to) Israel, to the leadership of neither are invitations to address Congress extended.

Likewise, to neither Saudi Arabia, nor Egypt-- nor Britain, for that matter-- do most members of Congress make pilgrimages upon taking office, as they do to Israel. On behalf of none of these others are there measures introduced in Congress, with the support of the White House, to punish criticism of their policies and practices. Only Israel is treated to these extraordinary forelock tugs.

INDEED, THE REMARKABLE SLAVISHNESS OF THE US POLITICAL CLASS TOWARD ISRAEL is so lick-spittle and abject that Nancy Pelosi-- Speaker of the US House of Representatives-- has actually said, on camera:

“[I]f this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid…and I don’t even call it aid…our cooperation with Israel. That’s fundamental to who we are.”

Pelosi is far from alone-- indeed, it is hard to name any national politician of any stature who hasn't said the same or its equivalent, or wouldn't, do so, if put to the question.

For decades, United States foreign policy has been a tool of Israeli interests generally, and the American people have been compelled to sacrifice their own well-being for the well-being of Israelis to the tune of $billions annually.

AS FAR BACK AS 1963, Israel was suspected of secretly developing nuclear weapons, and John Kennedy was demanding access to Israel's Dimona reactor site due to suspicions that it was a secret nuclear-weapons facility, despite Israel denials and the prior presentation of a Potemkin version of the facility to an American inspection team. See here and here.

Not long after these increasingly impatient demands began to escalate Kennedy was conveniently disappeared into the ground. Lyndon Johnson, a fawning, religiously-deluded Israeli sycophant, was elevated to the presidency in Kennedy's place, and the inspection and oversight demands ceased. (In 1986, Israeli nuclear technician Mordecai Vanunu revealed extensive details of his country's nuclear programs and arsenal, including the true history of the Dimona facility. In 2004, Vanunu declared that JFK's assassination was Israel's reaction to Kennedy's pressure to inspect the facility.)

Johnson was not just willing to turn a blind eye to Israeli acquisition and development of weapons of mass destruction. He was such an abject Israeli puppet that he actually assisted in the cover-up of the Israeli murder of 34 American sailors and wounding of 171 more on the USS Liberty while trying to sink that American naval vessel, presumably either to keep the Liberty from reporting on Israeli war crimes in the 1967 war or to blame its sinking on Egypt in order to pull the US into the war on Israel's side.

More to the immediate point, also during Johnson's "watch", American agents of Israel clandestinely secured large amounts of fissile material from American sources under false pretenses and transferred it to the rogue state.

Israeli spies continued to steal materials and knowledge over the subsequent decades (and not just nuclear secrets). During the same period, Israel shared the stolen nuclear technology with its sister apartheid regime in Boer South Africa.

OVER THE LAST 19 YEARS, the betrayal of America in service to Israel by those at the apex of America's political class has dramatically escalated. The costs have extended to tens of thousands of American lives lost and ruined, and to the heavy compromise of the blessings of liberty and rule of law previously-enjoyed by all of us.

Over that last near-two-decades, since being equipped with the "new Pearl Harbor" pretext of 9/11, that United States political elite has pursued a policy of destabilizing and in some cases outright destroying Israeli neighbors such as Iraq and Syria whose unmolested presence hindered its expansionist ambitions and resource acquisition. Likewise, the US has helped horrendous dictatorships in Egypt and Saudi Arabia suppress popular democratic impulses which might yield governments less willing to subordinate themselves to Israel than those which they would replace.

Parallel to the severe oppression of the people of Saudi Arabia and Egypt and the outright slaughter and displacement of Iraqis and Syrians (as well as the flattening of infrastructure and irreplaceable antiquities) has been the even more savage assault on the people of Iran in an effort to destroy yet another society which is no natural threat whatever to America but which has been thwarting Israeli ambitions to seize water resources in Southern Lebanon (by its support of Lebanese defenses against those ambitions).

These acute losses have been accompanied by the deep rooting of what will be generations-enduring implacable hatred of America in the hearts and minds of millions whose lives have been ruined by United States actions on behalf of Israeli interests.

NONE OF THE FOREGOING has ever really had anything to do with 9/11, of course. Even if it is believed that Osama bin Laden was behind those events, he was driven from Afghanistan almost immediately in 2001. Iraq was eventually admitted even by George Bush to have had nothing to do with 9/11.

Nor was Syria or Iran ever linked to the events of that day. Indeed, if any such linkage could be proposed, it would be to the Saudis, of which bin Laden was one, as were the majority of the purported hijackers.

Couple all of that with the transparent absurdity and the wealth of contradictory evidence making clear that the "official story" of 9/11 being flogged as the justification for all the subsequent bad behavior by the United States is nonsense on stilts, and it becomes plain that everyone in any important position in the political class has always known full well that 9/11 offers no legitimate justification for any of the purported responses to the event recited above.

9/11 was just a pretext for what has actually been US military (and economic) aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya (by virtue of the destabilization of which those set up to attack Syria were equipped with arms) and Iran. All these aggressions have benefitted Israel, and all were perpetrated at enormous American expense of blood and treasure.

All of these aggressions amounted to a dramatic escalation of recklessness on the part of the political class in its subjugation to the indefensibly barbaric little apartheid theocracy on the Mediterranean.

THE QUESTION NATURALLY ARISES: What has happened during the last 20 years to change things so dramatically for the worse?


It turns out that by at least 2009, Israel had co-opted the US National Security Agency into handing over all data collected by the spy agency from 24/7 surveillance of every American-- in raw (that is, unredacted) form. A risible fig-leaf in the form of an Israeli promise to ignore and destroy material concerning American government officials will ease the concerns of only the extraordinarily gullible over what is obviously the acquisition by a foreign interest of the means to directly control American politicians, media moguls and other wielders of power and influence.

So bold a thing as the creation of a written memorialization of this criminal arrangement at that point suggests to me that the same arrangement (or a very similar one) had been in place for quite some time before 2009, as well, but simply on a more clandestine basis. Either way, it is undeniable that for a long time now-- and during at least many of the bizarre, indefensible betrayals of American interests-- over the last 20 years, Israel has had access to the short hairs of America's political class and its presstitutes in the MSM (h/t to PCR for that bon mot).

What do you imagine is the likelihood that this treasure-trove of surveillance data has been used by Israel to seize control over (or at the very least, heavily influence) United States foreign and domestic policy? I know I'm a cynic about this sort of thing, but, judging from the evidence in the record, I'd say: "100%".

Indeed, I'd say that if Israel DIDN'T use this handover for exactly this purpose, it would be crazy. That doesn't mean I'm approving of it, of course. I think that the NSA officials who arranged this handover should be prosecuted for treason, and every officeholder of any other sort found to have been controlled by Israel should be, too.

I doubt that'll happen unless the mainstream media takes up this story and makes something of it-- but of course, Israel will have dirt on those folks, too, right?

ANYWAY, LET'S GET TO THE POINT: In light of the foregoing, only the most pedestrian of reasoning is needed to conclude beyond rational doubt that there WILL be foreign interference in the next election-- both before the event and afterwards. The nominating process must be suspect; the flow of significant donor support must be suspect; the selections of appointees and the actual policies to be pursued by winners of elections (as opposed to the rhetoric upon which those winners campaigned) must be suspect.

In the end, then, thanks to the corrupt and treasonous behavior Israel managed to secure from some officials (perhaps through having gotten some dirt by other means to begin with?) the rest of our officials must be presumed compromised.

In practical terms, even if you and I really do control who nominally ends up in office by way of our votes, we will NOT control who wields power afterwards, or how that power is wielded.

Talk amongst yourselves...

"The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave... [Such attachment] gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens, (who devote themselves to the favorite nation,) facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.""

-George Washington


P.S. Considering the revelations in the article above, don't you think it would be a good idea to defund the state whose reins are really held by a foreign power which does NOT act in the interests of America or Americans, or at least to stop sending YOUR money to where it will actually only fuel a competing interest?

And don't you think other Americans might feel the same way? Maybe you should share this information and these thoughts, and this information as well...

Tools For Leveraging The CtC Superpower

You've got magic in your hands, if you will use it...

I HAVE LATELY BURNED A LOT OF PIXELS encouraging people to take advantage of CtC's status as the singular solution to concerns of privacy activists, transparency activists, 9/11 truth activists and opponents of the increasingly authoritarian, expensive, immoral and dangerous security state generally. That solution-status is a superpower whose wielder can pull large numbers from these activist communities into ours and move us much closer to final-victory critical mass.

Unfortunately, having never been copied on anything sent into any of these activist communities, I fear that my encouragements in this regard are falling on deaf ears. Perhaps folks are failing to grasp that anyone facing harassment, resistance or grief from a tax agency-- now or in the future-- who hasn't vigorously pursued this sort of being-the-storm project has or will have only himself to blame.

But I live in hope, so...

BELOW YOU WILL SEE a handful of "memes" I've put together in order to facilitate this activist-community outreach project. I hope that with the thing being made as simple as just attaching these images to tweets and GABs with suitable messages and hashtags, or posting them on facebook walls or newsgroup pages, maybe you all will get going with this zero-cost, high-payback play?

Here are the first batch of memes (to which I might add more, and you certainly can do so as well):

MOST OF YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE contacts in one or more of the communities addressed with these messages. If not direct contacts, you will regularly see tweets, GABs and posts from those folks or about these issues.

All that is necessary is to post/tweet/GAB these memes as original expressions or as replies (or as illustrations accompanying original or reply expressions). Especially post them on websites of the related activists, whether directly (if possible) or as comments or replies to articles and so forth on those webpages.

Finding places to post is easy. Just google "privacy activists" or "wikileaks supporters" (or "save Julian Assange") or "the truth about 9/11" or "the truth about Russia hacking the DNC". Each such search will bring up a great starting line-up of pages and activist-enclaves dedicated to each of these issues.

Every participant in each of the pages and enclaves is a self-selected enthusiast for the one means by which the evil they decry can be vanquished. They just don't know it yet.


And the payoff could be huge-- and the best thing you ever did for yourself.

But nothing will happen unless YOU get to work.

"I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."

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:






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...


The Liberating Truth About The 16th Amendment

IF YOU'RE NOT SPREADING THIS LINK with every bit of energy you can, to school libraries, homeschool families and community groups, your neighbors, your family members, your pastors and co-congregationalists, journalists, lawyers, CPAs, members of congress, tax-agency workers, Wikipedia, Anonymous, WikiLeaks, the Tax Foundation, everyone in the "tax honesty" movement, the 9/11 truth movement, other activist movements and everyone else, you have only yourself to blame for your troubles with the tax, and a whole lot else of which you might complain. It's on you.

On Rogues And Rogue States

Old, New, and Improved

by Fred Reed

I have just finished reading William Shirer’s Berlin Diary. (This may not fascinate you, but I am coming to something.) I first encountered it in high school. It is of course Shirer’s account as a correspondent in Germany of the rise of the Nazis. Most of it is well known to the educated. The Nazis, who had control over the domestic press, convinced the German population that the Poles were threatening Germany, as plausible as Guatemala threatening the United States. The Poles were said to be committing atrocities against Germans.

Then the Reich, with no justification whatever, having absolute air superiority, attacked Poland, bombing undefended cities and killing huge numbers of people. It was a German pattern several times repeated. Many reporters told of the smell of rotting bodies, of refugees dying of hunger and thirst. Today the Reich is endlessly remembered as a paragon of evil. It was.

How did Nazi Germany differ from the United States today? There is the same lying. Washington insisted that Iraq was about to get nuclear weapons, biological agents, that it had poisonous gas. None of this was true. The government, unimpeded by the media, persuaded over half of the American population that Iraq was responsible for Nine-Eleven. Now it says that Iran works to get nuclear weapons, and of course that the Russians are coming. The American press, informally but strictly controlled, carefully doesn’t challenge any of this.

Having prepped the American public as the Nazis prepped theirs, Washington unleashed a savage attack against Iraq, deliberately destroying infrastructure, leaving the country without power or purified water. The slaughter was godawful. But, said America, the war was to rid the Iraqi people of an evil dictator, to bring them democracy, freedom, and human rights. (The oil was entirely incidental. The oil is always incidental.)

FRED IS USUALLY A LOT OF FUN TO READ, but not so much this time. Usually you get the sense that Fred's tongue is firmly in cheek tongue in cheek, but this time it feels like that tongue is being bitten in order to keep Fred's words less strident than they otherwise would be.

 I kinda wish Fred had just let go, myself... Now, as we are about to start a new year and are in "resolution" season, it is a fit time for this kind of, "Wake up, you sleepwalking morons" article, and stronger would have been better. We really are in an ugly spot, and it needs to be called out, and loudly.

EVEN MORE, THOUGH, what needs to be done is to get America OUT of this spot. It's a shame Fred doesn't know the solution, and so doesn't share it with his many readers.

 Maybe someone will figure out a way to tell him... Maybe you?

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."

-J-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.

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 (fifteenth) edition of CtC!

C'mon! CtC can't be right! You're crazy!

If CtC were actually right, it would mean the government's been concealing and denying and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

PRO TIP: If I were the IRS and I wanted to discourage people from rebutting allegations that they had done things I can tax, and wanted to keep them from successfully reclaiming withheld or paid-in money, I would salt the "tax honesty" community with passionate-seeming "legal researchers" who would warn anyone whose ear they captured that filing a 1040 is a bad idea for one reason or another...


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.


The 'Watching the Watchmen Amendment'

If you're not talking this one up everywhere and helping generate a buzz, you don't really want liberty and the rule of law...


In light of the actual evidence, those who doubt or deny the accuracy and correctness of CtC just because some government officials denounce it are like the 16th-century Europeans who were mystified by Copernicus getting all those astronomical predictions right even though the church had said he was wrong.

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.
