Another educated American couple send the tax-robot
SCOTT AND DEBBIE GILLESPIE are a couple of real
Americans standing tall for the rule of law and for their
rights. Last week Scott and Debbie won their second victory on
behalf of both, turning an IRS effort to tax earnings the
Gillespies had said were not taxable into a,
"Thank you for your response to the notice we sent to you about
your 2013 taxes. We're pleased to tell you that the information
you provided resolved the tax issue in question and that our
inquiry is now closed."
Here's the story: In 2014, Scott and Debbie filed
this return concerning 2013. As is seen, Debbie did not
dispute the characterization of her earnings during that year as
"wages" (and a W-2, not included in this posting, was attached to
the return accordingly). But as is also seen, Scott DID rebut
allegations from HIS payer that his activities as a contractor
(and the earnings that resulted) were taxable.
The IRS didn't like that rebuttal, and very much
preferred Scott's payer's allegation. About three months ago,
the agency sent Scott and Debbie a "proposed tax due" notice,
reciting the payer's numbers and calculating an unpaid tax
liability for the Gillespies of $2,010:
But Scott and Debbie know the law, and were neither
intimidated, nor misled by this agency effort to get them to
reverse themselves and declare that what Scott does for a living
is taxable when they know it is not. Scott fired back
this letter in response to the "proposal", making all of
this perfectly clear.
A couple of long months went by, during which who
knows what was going on in the bowels of the bureaucracy. But
finally, on January 19, the IRS acknowledged the correctness of
Scott and Debbie's position:
HATS OFF TO SCOTT AND DEBBIE GILLESPIE, who
stand tall for the truth and the law! Their victory for 2013
joins other confrontation-episodes in the 'Every
Which Way But Loose' collection, and the overall long list

CtC-educated American men and women posted on
the Lost Horizons Bulletin Board.
But while you do, watch out for that tax-collecting
robot... I think it's going to explode!!

for the law. They are currently prosecuting a lawsuit to compel
the processing of their thus-far-resisted claim for refund by
the United States of what was withheld from them in 2012. Hats

Tim Kendrick has posted
on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about

just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be

unusual varieties, an example of which was recently sent to one
of those real Americans who are standing up to enforce the
THE GOOD FELLOW WHO RECEIVED the unusual
acknowledgement at which we're about to look is an accomplished
upholder of the law. He has three proudly-posted victories to
his credit so far since learning the truth about the tax a few
years ago, successfully overcoming false assertions that his
earnings were subject to the income tax, and recovering
everything withheld from him in connection with that tax during
each of those three years.
But for today, this gentleman's name is going to go
unmentioned, because despite the IRS having faced the truth
concerning his earnings for each of those other years (after
subjecting each claim to the agency's routine rigorous scrutiny),
for some reason the IRS employee that began to process this
man's 2012 filing has been dragging his or her feet. A lawsuit
is in progress, and what we're going to look at is relevant to
that. Our friend doesn't want to show his hand too soon.
So, there is no name to show until this contest is
over. But the chink in the tax agency's stonewall that was
revealed a few weeks ago will be of great interest to all
WITHOUT ANY PROMPTING, and to our hero's
considerable surprise, out of the blue and into the mailbox came
a notice from the Social Security Administration announcing the
IRS acknowledgment that our hero's earnings as a contractor in
2012 don't qualify as IRC-defined "self-employment income" (the
kind of contractor pay that is subject to the tax). Our hero's
educated rebuttal of the contrary "1099-MISC" assertions of his
payer, on which the tax agency had been mindlessly relying, has
This kind of inter-agency acknowledgement happens
constantly. But for the filer to get notice of it is rare.
The SSA's accounting of taxable earnings
used to calculate any benefits for which our friend might someday
want to apply has been reduced accordingly, of course. But even
if the gentleman hasn't already accumulated the maximum credit
(as many folks of a certain age have done long since, over years
of suffering the misapplication of the tax prior to learning the
truth) I don't think he minds...
Here's the notice:
Isn't it nice when these bureaucrats finally give
up on lying and stonewalling and just do the right thing?
Frankly, I'm as happy for the one that found the right path to
walk here as I am for our hero.

The Most Serious Threat To Our American
What's being done to Doreen, and why, makes all the
other corruption pale by comparison
HEY, WHILE THINKING ABOUT
Doreen's case the
other day, I was struck by something that had never occurred to
me before. This realization springs from the fact that not only
is Doreen being punished for refusing to declare a belief that
she does not hold, but she is being punished for refusing to
make expressions that she considers generally harmful.
That is, like I and every other educated American,
Doreen believes that to suggest that the unapportioned income tax can be lawfully applied to common,
unprivileged activities like hers is corrupting of the
Constitution and the rule of law. Such a suggestion would be not
only wrong objectively but would elevate the rule of
officeholders and their whims over the rule of the People and
the law they have laid upon their governments.
In short, what Doreen is being punished for not
saying is a form of government propaganda, aimed at
and subjugating the American people. Indeed, when the
pernicious, illegal orders were made, it was actually stated
that they were intended to influence the thinking of other
And now Doreen is being punished for refusing to
play a role in that propaganda effort. So here's my new thought:
Is this not indistinguishable in every important respect from
what is sometimes done to POWs, whose captors demand statements
and confessions and other expressions, to be used as propaganda
on their captors behalf, with punishments to follow for refusal
Your comments would be most welcome, and your
expansion on this point, and bringing it into discussions
whenever possible, would also be appreciated.

PRO TIP: By the
physics of the law, an indirect tax is necessarily a
privilege tax. Here's why:
The distinction between a
direct tax and an indirect tax is incidence. A
direct tax arises by the direct imposition of the
taxer, without any election of the taxed (other than
that of authorizing the taxing power in the first
indirect tax arises by the taxed
choosing to to do
something by which the taxer's claim is then
created. The choice that is a valid object of an
indirect tax can't be anything done as an exercise
of an untaxable right. Nor can it be any activity of
necessity. A tax on anything done by necessity would
arise not by actual election of the taxed but simply
because the tax had been imposed by the taxer. Such
a tax, whatever it may be called, would be in actual
substance a direct tax, even if one that arose only
intermittently. Think of a tax on eating, for
example, or working, or engaging in trade with
others (all of which are things done by right as
well as by necessity, but you get the point).
What is left as the
valid object of an indirect tax is the exercise of
privilege-- something done not by right, and
therefore done by the permission of the taxer (who,
due to being possessed of an ownership right in the
thing being permitted, is entitled to claim of
portion of the proceeds when the thing is profitably

helping generate a buzz, you don't really want liberty and the
rule of law...
PRO TIP: The
argument that a concept explicitly given a statutory
definition for purposes of this or that chapter or
"title" has the same meaning as the common word the
legislature has borrowed for its label-- which
meaning plainly didn't suit the legislature's
purposes, hence its replacement-- is a preposterous
reading of the law.

statutory definition of the term excludes unstated
meanings of that term.”

February 3- In 1690,
the Massachusetts colonial government issues the American
continent's first paper "money". In 1809, the Illinois
Territory is formed. In 1913, the 16th Amendment-- the most
deliberately misrepresented Constitutional amendment of all, bar
none-- is declared ratified. All the amendment did was overrule
the limited effect of the Pollock v. Farmer's Loan & Trust
ruling by the Supreme Court in 1895, which had prevented
dividends and rent connected with the exercise of federal
privilege from being subject to the tax like other "income" had
been for decades based on a view the court took of their
relationship of those particular gains to the sources from which
they are derived. To learn the whole story of the 16th

worn by the lovely model of the 'I Stand with Doreen'

But you know what? The charge against Doreen is an
effort by the state to make it so.
Doreen was charged, remember, with
criminally-refusing to cede control of her expressions to the
state. Now, I'll grant you that technically her thoughts would
remain her own, but if the state can dictate what everyone says,
then pretty soon that atmosphere of controlled expressions will
result in first influencing, and then ultimately controlling
what everyone thinks.
If the State gets away with establishing the
precedent that every written expression-- even just those on
testimonial instruments-- can be required to echo the state's
preferred view of things, the fate of free thinking and liberty
is obvious (and it's not good).

earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the

about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying

U.S. Media Condemns Iran's "Aggression" in
Intercepting U.S. Naval Ships- In Iranian Waters
by Glenn Greenwald
broke last night, hours before President Obama’s State of the
Union address, that two U.S. Navy ships “in the Persian Gulf” were
“seized” by Iran, and the 10 sailors on board were “arrested.” The
Iranian government quickly said, and even the U.S. government itself
seemed to acknowledge, that these ships had entered Iranian waters
without permission, and were thus inside Iranian territory when
detained. CNN’s Barbara Starr, as she always does, immediately went
on the air with Wolf Blitzer to
read what U.S. officials told her to say: “We are told that
right now, what the U.S. thinks may have happened, is that one of
these small boats experienced a mechanical problem … perhaps
beginning to drift. … It was at that point, the theory goes right
now, that they drifted into Iranian territorial waters.”
It goes without saying that every country has the right
to patrol and defend its territorial waters and to intercept other
nations’ military boats that enter without permission. Indeed, the
White House itself last night was clear that, in its view, this
was “not a hostile act by Iran” and that Iran had given assurances
that the sailors would be promptly released. And this morning
they were released, exactly as Iran promised they would be,
after Iran said it determined the trespassing was accidental and the
U.S. apologized and promised no future transgressions.
Despite all of this, most U.S. news accounts last night
quickly skimmed over — or outright ignored — the rather critical
fact that the U.S. ships had “drifted into” Iranian waters.
Instead, all sorts of TV news personalities and U.S. establishment
figures puffed out their chest and instantly donned their Tough
Warrior pose to proclaim that this was an act of aggression —
virtually an act of war: not by the U.S., but by Iran. They had
taken our sailors “hostage,” showing yet again how menacing and
untrustworthy they are.
Now ask yourself this: Have you really done
all that you can to
know to also stand up and act in the only way that will really
bring about change in your lifetime?
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
February 6- In 1782,
South Carolina bans paper money, after a thorough lesson in its
inherent and unavoidable evils. In 1788, Massachusetts becomes
the sixth of the several states to ratify the United States
Constitution and authorize the new version of the federal
government, under the charter of which the federal government is
given no authority to emit bills of credit or other paper
"money", but may only coin money-- a limited authority in
harmony with the identical prescription that the several states
may not emit bills of credit, nor make any thing but gold or
silver a tender in payment of debts. In 1815, New Jersey grants
the first American railroad charter (for a line between New
Brunswick and Trenton). In 1959, the first patent is issued for
an integrated circuit; and a Titan ICBM is successfully
test-fired for the first time. In 1989, the "Roundtable" talks
begin in Poland, marking the beginning of the end of communist
domination of Eastern Europe.
