Btw, a copy of CtC from anywhere except the link above may not be a current edition. CHECK. It matters. Also, there ARE no e-book, Kindle or .pdf versions of CtC. Don't get taken in by efforts to sell you-- or even give you for free-- any such thing.

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

- Thomas Paine

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 the truth for years on end,

and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

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

 

 

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!

 

 

I'm delighted when anyone wishes to share what I have posted here with others! Sharing this page is an important means of moving toward the restoration of the rule of law-- PLEASE DO IT!! But I'd appreciate your doing so by directing your friends here themselves, rather than by copying and emailing chunks of the material.

Which Storm Is It Going To Be For You? 1776's? Or 1984's?

Choose wisely and well, and may the FOURCE be with you.

EVER THE OPTIMIST, I'm going to take for granted that everyone reading these words has also read George Orwell's chilling, prescient dystopian novel, '1984'. And I'm going to take for granted that it scared the hell out of everyone.

As said, I hope '1984' scared you. But not by its darkness or pythonesque violence. Nor even because of its oh-so-effective picture-painting of oppression and the destruction of independent thought in service to the interests and ambitions of the elites who run the show things in Orwell's Oceania.

No, my hope is that '1984' scared hell out of you because you recognize how far modern America has already been dragged into a '1984' alternate universe.

Americans today are subjected to routinized lying and spinning and propaganda and consent-engineering throughout all our dominant institutions of authority. We suffer an endless hind-brain-directed drumbeat of state-worship churned-out by every commercial interest beholden to the state for the butter on its bread. Most importantly, we are under constant and heavy pressure to drink the state's Kool-Aid, embrace its self-serving fictions, and abandon reliance on-- or even belief in-- our own powers of observation and reason.

Like no others before us, today's Americans are being molded and whipped into mindless acquiescence to every state-serving "two + two = five" proposition. Winston Smith would feel right at home in modern America.

PICK YOUR SUBJECT:

  • We are told to forget the US-instigated coup in Ukraine in 2014 to which all Russian actions there have been purely defensive responses (and mostly on behalf of the large portion of the population of Ukraine that doesn't want to be ruled by the usurpers we installed in Kiev).

  • We are told that juries must confine their attention to "facts" and pay none to the acceptability of the law which the state seeks to enforce against one of their neighbors.

  • We are told that North Vietnamese gunboats fired on US ships in the Gulf of Tonkin; that Pearl Harbor was a big surprise; and that the Lusitania was just an innocent passenger ship.

  • We are told that 24/7 warrantless surveillance of anyone and everyone by the state is not a massive violation of the Fourth Amendment.

  • We are told that Hezbollah, an organization that arose as a defensive force against Israeli invasions of Lebanon 40 years ago and has seats in the Lebanese parliament, is a "terrorist organization".

  • We are told the Branch Davidians committed mass suicide.

  • We are told that WikiLeaks was given the emails revealing the conspiracy by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to hijack the Democratic nomination process by way of a Russian hack (despite it having been definitively shown that the emails were copied onto a thumb drive by an insider at the DNC).

  • We are told the president doesn't need a Congressional declaration of war to engage in hostilities, and can instead do so on his own call.

I could go on for pages and pages.

We are, in short, asked to believe a thousand different versions of two + two = five.

TWO + TWO DOESN'T EQUAL FIVE, of course; instead, it equals four. Here's another way of putting the issue that I like even better: Q. "How many legs does a dog have if you call its tail a leg?" A. "Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg."

But I really want you to grasp this other truth, as well: If the American people let the state say "five" often enough, without the lie being rebutted just as prominently as it is told, before too much more time goes by the American people will lose the ability to perceive or believe the truth.

Once a lie is that deeply embedded, its false assertion can be treated as true by those whose interests it serves, without hesitation and without hindrance or meaningful resistance.

Once the "five" lie has been told often enough without being met with a loud chorus of, "Bullsh*t! The answer is FOUR!", the state (to offer a crude model) will be able to take five pieces of your cake when the law says it is entitled to twice two slices. Where once it would go otherwise, now the state's courts will uphold its claim, juries will uphold its claim, and that'll just be that.

To use another, more concrete and frightening example, let's remember that once the lie was deeply-enough embedded in certain cultures of antiquity that kings-- being graced with their high office and unthwarted in the exercise of their will by divine intervention-- must therefore be recognized as enjoying the favor of God and must be obeyed (the "divine right of kings"), the reduction of the majority population to serfdom-- to being mere property of those holding high offices, who controlled the serfs' movements, directed their labors, disposed of their output and administered upon them "justice"-- became possible. And once in place, that imposition of serfdom proved to be sustainable for millennia.

NOW, I HATE TO SOUND LIKE a broken record (and I know I do). But I have to say yet again that the big lie of our time, by which Americans are not only being reduced to serfdom but also being morally compromised and put in peril of world conflagration as well, is that of the income tax as being, by law, a tax on all earnings or wealth realization, rather than the tax on private profits gained from the use or administration of public resources that it really is.

That lie has been effectively undisturbed over its entire lifetime since being conceived in the early 1940s.

For 16 years now a small but courageous community of truth-tellers has been saying, as it were, "No! The answer is FOUR!", and that's great. But it's not good enough.

Rebuttal of big and ubiquitous lies must be big and ubiquitous to be effective.

Each CtC-educated American saying, "No!" to some tax-agency bureaucrat by way of his or her filings and claims is a whisper in a windstorm. Even each educated American talking to all his or her friends and acquaintances who will listen, explaining that, "The answer is FOUR!" amounts to little more than a murmur at the seashore.

These efforts and actions must continue, of course. But much more must be done-- and quickly-- if this community hopes to overcome the lie and achieve the security that is only possible by having accomplished that task.

In short, this community must begin engaging in loud and visible rebuttals of the lie. This community must become a serious FOURCE!

OF COURSE, I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS for a very long time. I wasn't kidding about the "broken record" thing, and many of you know it.

But despite my saying it as much as I have, with precious few exceptions, no one has ever really responded. It's time (and past time) for that to stop.

Over the years I have written and posted scripts for wake-up videos, made a multitude of pamphlets and posters and flyers and handouts available, and a few months ago created and posted artwork for use on rented billboards. This all in addition to writing and posting endless articles and papers designed to serve as epiphany-prompters if properly-introduced and shared with others.

A few have done a few things with a few of these resources, and all those efforts are praised. But I've yet to see a single billboard done.

I've yet to see a single CtC-wake-up ad on the side of a bus. Or space for a single chunk of CtC-wake-up bought in a mainstream newspaper. I've yet to see a single effort at producing a live-action video of any of my scripts.

In fact, I've seen only a tiny handful of independently-written, produced and posted CtC-wake-up videos on YouTube, Vimeo or anywhere else, even though these can be done with nothing more than a smartphone and a little creativity (or a smartphone, a little creativity and an anywhere from free to $100 digital video editing and production package to accomplish some really amazing things).

This inertia is the road to failure, my friends.

I'LL BE BLUNT. You getting your money back is NOT the path to Victory. It is a victory, but it isn't even a so much as a step down the path to Victory.

The path to real victory--and real security in both little individual victories and in victory with a capital "V"-- is traversed solely by getting more Americans to read the law-- competently organized, as will only be found here, here or here-- for themselves. Period.

Therefore I say this with all dead seriousness: If you ALL don't start running hard NOW to get, "No! The answer is FOUR!" into the public mind this moment of sunshine, courtesy of the truth, is doomed.

As Edmund Burke once wisely observed, "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle." What Burke means, relevant to this context, is that the good guys have to as diligent and forceful in getting the truth out there as the bad guys are at promulgating the lie.

IN THE TITLE TO THIS ARTICLE I asked the question, "Which kind of storm is it going to be for you? The 1984 storm? Or the 1776 storm?

Orwell himself described the 1984 storm: "[I]magine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."

Jefferson gave us a pretty good sense of the 1776 storm: "Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God."

I'd say the choice is obvious. Don't you agree?

Now, don't you think you should get busy? I knew you would.

Be the storm.

And may the FOURCE be with you.

P.S.S. THOSE WITH SHARP EYES will have noticed at the top of the page that this newsletter departs from prior editions. I am no longer identifying a period of coverage, which previously had always been a two week interval.

I simply cannot continue to be at all times under a deadline. I am not getting any younger; there are people I love who need and deserve my attention; and frankly I can say without blushing that I've been doing way more than my share of the heavy-lifting and am entitled to ease up on the throttle.

In saying that, I don't mean I'm going away. But I do mean that I am seriously and unambiguously counting on YOU to start doing some of that lifting.

I have given all of you everything you need to be the storm, big time. Please rage like a hurricane.

Rick Van Camp's Excellent Outreach Letter

Notes And Tips For Educated Filers

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

May 14- In 1796, the world's first smallpox vaccination is administered.  In 1804, the Lewis and Clark Expedition sets off.  1948, Jewish residents in the British "Mandate of Palestine" (who comprised about one third of the total population at the time, and owned less than 15% of the land) reject a United Nations plan to divide the mandate into equal-sized Jewish and Palestinian states (with Jerusalem under international administration) and declare the independent state of Israel, one day before the formal expiration of the mandate.  In 1961 the "Freedom Riders" bus is fire-bombed near Anniston, Alabama, and the civil-rights protestors are beaten by an angry mob.  In 1998, the final episode of 'Seinfeld' airs.

'American Gumption-Catharsis': A New Book On The CtC Phenomenon

Warrior Brian Wright is bringing the Storm!

BRIAN WRIGHT HAS JUST PUBLISHED A NEW BOOK to inform, awaken and encourage Americans to stand up and become part of the solution:

Brian summarizes the book as focused on leveraging what he calls the knowledge and practice of filing CtC-educated (his term: the “Hendrickson Discovery”) into liberation of one’s self and country.

Chapters include articles from three leading CtC warriors: Kevin Flanagan (who writes what Brian says he regards as the best single-page argument for CtC: “The Liberating Truth about the Income Tax.”); Gregory Sutton (who furnishes his eminently readable and enlightening essay, “The History of the 16th Amendment.”); and Jeremy Lee (who provides a collection of practical real-world questions and answers from exchanges on Quora that correct common errors, attacks, and disinformation regarding CtC).

Brian also includes my “Three Short Sentences” summary of the underlying dynamics revealed in CtC, and then, Brian’s own thoughts, which he describes as being chiefly that each individual publicly asserting and acting in accordance with CtC's revelations, en masse, represents the prospect for a major imminent “Rise of the Independents” (Brian’s word for people of independent consciousness). 'American Gumption-Catharsis' is meant to be a short irrefutable argument that presents every Tom, Dick, and Mary with a clear choice: a) agree and prosper or b) disagree (or keep your head in the sand) and fail… to be a reasonable, truth-justice-and-liberty human being.

Site Update Alert

...concerning tweaks to the FRP posts on lh.

I DON'T MEAN FOR ANYONE to mistake this alert as suggesting that I post such a thing whenever I do an update or addition to a page on the site. I do not.

In fact, I do updates, tweaks and additions constantly, and pretty nearly never post anything to alert anyone to the changes. Doing such alerts would be way too burdensome.

Instead, I simply encourage everyone as a matter of routine to check the relevant pages for source material frequently when interested in a covered subject. Also, always "refresh" the page whenever doing so.

IN THIS CASE, HOWEVER, I have just done a couple of updates related to a subject about which I get a fair amount of email-- "frivolous return penalties" (FRPs). These updates can be found in the entrance page to that area of the website, and in the "Pushback Project" page.

Among other things, these updates provide an overview of the typical course of events when an improper "FRP" threat is actually pursued by the tax agency, and how such a thing might be addressed by the target of the scam.

I encourage everyone to read and become familiar with the new material, and to refresh themselves on everything else related to this subject (find the intro and links to special-focus pages on the entrance page) even though most of you have no personal interest. The FRP hoax/fraud remains the #1 tax agency tool for attempting to discourage or evade proper educated filings and claims, and understanding everything about it is very important for outreach and encouragement success.

Four more testaments issued during the last few weeks, including two from the feds on amended returns.

Kevin & Nilka Angeles

KEVIN & NILKA SHARE THEIR LATEST VICTORY: a complete refund of everything withheld from them and given to Georgia against the possibility that they had done anything income-taxable during 2018:

Here is the filing that produced this victory.

***

Jordan Powell

JORDAN SHARES TWO VICTORIES TODAY, both from the United States and both secured over the last seven weeks by amended returns filed this past February correcting originals filed prior to gaining a CtC education (and hence, both with interest in addition to the 100% refunds of everything withheld). The first is for 2015:

Here is the filing that produced this victory on behalf of the rule of law.

Jordan's second shared victory today is for 2016:

Here is the filing that produced this second victory shared by Jordan today.

***

KEVIN & NILKA AND JOEL AND JORDAN'S VICTORIES join 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? 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.

Some Good Perspective From The Delightfully Sardonic John Prine

Another guy who's always had his head screwed on pretty straight, even though with a decidedly whimsical tilt.

*****

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

May 15- In 1252, Pope Innocent IV authorizes the torture of accused heretics in order to secure confessions and information about others.  In 1776, the Virginia Convention declares the colony's independence from Great Britain, and instructs its delegation to the Continental Congress to propose a joint declaration on behalf of all of the American colonies.  In 1862, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture is created.  In 1911, the United States Supreme Court declares Standard Oil to be too successful and orders its breakup under the auspices of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act.  In 1940, the first McDonald's restaurant opens.  In 1948, Egypt, Transjordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia attack the Jewish partisans who had just seized control of Palestine the day before the intended partitioning of that territory into equally-sized Jewish and Arab Palestinian states under a UN mandate intended to peacefully provide for a Jewish homeland.

A Word From The United Bitches of America

NOTE: If you share this video around (and I know you will), keep in mind that some viewers will fool themselves into thinking that just forwarding such things around is the same as actually doing something to fix the problem of the criminal state. Be sure to preemptively correct this misunderstanding, and provide links and an admonition to get CtC-educated and CtC-activated.

AN UNMISTAKABLE, INDISPUTABLE subordination of American law and interests to the purposes of a foreign state is being committed by President Trump and others in public office: http://losthorizons.com/N/20.htm#PageOne. Why is no one speaking of this?

***

YOU'VE BEEN SCREWED HARD your entire adult life by the biggest Deep State scheme in American history. See it exposed in just a few pages of documentation at http://losthorizons.com/A/TheNatureOfTheTax.pdf.

***

AND HERE IS SOMETHING TO POST anywhere possible as a response to righteous-- but thus far toothless- expressions of outrage at what is being done to Julian Assange and our right to know what our servant government is really up to:

So, Friend, you rightly raise hell about the outrages being perpetrated on the heroic Julian Assange. And yet, you continue to personally finance every one of those outrages, and have made no effort to inform your readers of the fact that the odds are neither they, nor you, need be doing so under the law.

I challenge and implore you to visit http://losthorizons.com/The16th.htm. Learn the liberating and empowering truth about the American income tax that has led tens of thousands of American men and women to cease paying for the war crimes and other offense Julian Assange has exposed, and also to be spared the moral taint for financing the "official" street crimes of the kind by which Assange is being victimized.

These educated Americans have taken back $billions (with a "b") from the United States-- see about 1,300 examples of these complete recoveries of amounts withheld or paid-in as tax at http://losthorizons.com/BulletinBoard.htm. See what it would mean if more Americans knew what these good folks know, at http://losthorizons.com/CtCLife.htm. Spread this critically-important information and become a big part of the solution, rather than continuing to be a small but definite part of the problem.

(NOTE: A little customization as needed will make this a suitable post in response to griping about any number of government offenses...)

++++

BTW, if you do tweets, gabs and posts of your own composition (as I hope you do), PLEASE make a point of including links to the material on losthorizons that you want your readers to see! Find them all here and here (a newsfeed reader will be needed to see the links at that latter resource, which lists and links to all newsletter articles of the last year or so...).

A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EVERYONE!!!

DUE TO CHRONIC AND ESCALATING interferences by ISPs (or others) which have made direct newsletter emails an extremely time-consuming and increasingly unreliable announcement mechanism, I have transitioned to alternative announcement methods. These include:

  • A custom group on Google by which the newsletter emails will be delivered straight to your inbox (click on the link and subscribe to the group-- leave all options in their default states);

  • Twitter (click here to follow me and receive the announcement posts);

  • Facebook (click here to "like" the losthorizons page and receive the announcement posts);

  • GAB (click here to follow me and receive the announcement posts).

If you choose one of these social media options (or use them in addition to other means, as I wish you would), PLEASE get the full value out of them by diligently "liking" and "retweeting" or "sharing" or "reposting" my posts!

The Biggest Snow-Job In World History: The Myth That 1913 America Adopted A Marxist Progressive Tax On "All That Comes In"

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”

-James Madison

Thank goodness the sun is now shining...

 

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 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...

Regarding Trolleries

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from learning the truth about the "income tax")

 

 

FFOR 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.

Media Evasion Of CtC Must End, Now

Time, unfortunately, is on the side of the well-funded disinformation specialists class

 

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

May 17- In 1902, the 2,000-year-old Antikythera astronomical computer is discovered.  In 1954, the United States Supreme Court unanimously acknowledges that its 1896 decision in Plessy v. Ferguson-- and numerous subsequent supporting rulings-- were bogus judicial sophistries constructed and maintained in service to the then-existing political power structure (the rulings had upheld the forcible denial of access to certain state-funded facilities by certain state citizens).  In 1973, televised hearings in the Senate on the Watergate affair begin.  In 2018, the US Senate confirmed as head of the CIA Gina Haspel, despite her being known to have overseen systematic torture of "black-site" CIA prisoners and to have destroyed 96 video tapes of the torture sessions even while they were under a Congressional subpoena.               

 

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...

Pompeo Lies, Cheats and Steals (But He's Still a Good Christian)

by Philip Giraldi

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently recounted to an audience at Texas A&M University that when he was head of the Central Intelligence Agency he was responsible for “lying, cheating and stealing” to benefit the United States. “Like we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment.”

The Secretary made the comment with a grin, noting that when he was a cadet at West Point he subscribed to the Academy honor code, which stated that “You will not lie, cheat, or steal or tolerate those who do.” The largely student audience clearly appreciated and irony and laughed and applauded, though it is not clear what they made of the “glory of the American experiment.” The normally humorless Pompeo was suggesting ironically that yesterday’s Pompeo would be required to turn today’s Pompeo into the appropriate authorities for lying and also conniving at high crimes and misdemeanors while at the Agency.

Certainly, some might find Pompeo’s admission a bit lame though perhaps understandable as he arrived at CIA without any experience in intelligence. Someone should have whispered in his ear, “That is what spy agencies do Mike.” And if he found the moral ambiguities vexing, he should have turned down the job. Equally lame has been the international media coverage of the comments (it was not reported in any major national news outlet in the US) which reflected both shock and vindication at finding a top-level official who would admit that Washington does all that sort of nasty stuff.

And Pompeo is not alone in his doing what would have hitherto been unthinkable as many senior figures in the Trump Administration who have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution now find themselves conniving at starting various wars without the constitutionally required declaration of war from Congress. Pompeo has personally assured both the Venezuelans and Iranians that “all options are on the table,” while also arming the Ukrainians and warning the Russians to get out of Caracas or else face the consequences. And it is a good thing that he has now learned how to lie as he does so when he keeps insisting that the Iranians are the leading state sponsors of terrorism or that the Saudis are fighting a just war in Yemen.

Pence A Christian? POMPEO?

by Fred Reed

Pompeo: “My Faith in Jesus Christ Makes a Real Difference”

Pompeo says God may have sent Trump to save Israel from Iran

“As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible,” said Mr Pompeo….”I am confident that the Lord is at work here,”

Pence, a Catholic Evangelical who almost became a priest: “I made a commitment to Christ.”

Christians? These Christians support a war on Yemen in which huge numbers of people are dying of mutilation, cholera, and starvation, a war they could stop with a telephone call. They similarly support butchery of Afghans from the air, massive killing in Syria, bombing of Somalis, and torture chambers around the world. Such is their Christianity. They lack even a shred of human decency. But they are Christians.

Tell me, Mr Pompeo, Mr. Pence:. Have you ever seen a child die of starvation? I have heard it described. It takes many days. Crying, crying, crying, slowly getting weaker. The mother, frantic, desperate, going crazy. The child holds out his arms, expecting as children do that their mother will do something. The crying eventually stops. But maybe you would get more of a kick out of watching one die of cholera caused by your wars. Death by cholera is quicker, but more interesting: Puking and defecating uncontrollably, crying, crying. The dehydration kills them. Neat, huh? Meanwhile, Mike, you eat prime rib in Washington and talk of the sanctity of your faith. You are a goddamned pious monster. May you rot in hell, if any.

We have Pompeo, a malignant manatee looking to start wars in which he will not risk his flabby amorphous ass also parading his Christianity. Bolton, a mean sonofabitch who belongs in a strait jacket, at least doesn’t pose as someone having a soul. And the Golden Tufted Cocatoo, too weak to control those around him, preening and tweeting. God save us.

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

I hope you read all of Giraldi and Reed's articles. They both offer cogent wake-up calls about a very real and ongoing threat.

The only problem with the articles are their failure to provide a real remedy to the problem, because drawing attention alone, and denunciations, aren't going to do anything. When was the last time Washington abandoned a corrupt, criminal or bat-sh*t crazy practice, policy or program just because fingers were pointed and wagged?

But I'll fill in that blank:

Dangerous and corrupt practices, policies and programs will stop only when there's not enough money in the hands of the criminal actors to pay for them, because the rest of us cease sending them that money. Thus, as with so many other matters of the swamp, the only solution is the CtC solution, which is to say, the Founders' solution.

In short, We the People (you and me) have to do as the Founders meant for us to do, and stop fueling bad behavior by people in power. We must make ourselves once again strong-- at their expense-- just as they have made themselves strong at our expense over the last 80 years!

Aren't you REALLY, REALLY glad YOU'VE had the fortitude and clarity of vision to do that?

Now ask yourself this: Have I really done all that I can to urge everyone I know to also stand up and act in the only way that will really bring about change in my 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 means..."

May 18- In 1302, the militia of Bruges, a city in the Flemish region of Belgium, massacre the troops of a French garrison quartered there to to prevent "smuggling" and ensure that imported wool passed through the hands of politically-connected favorites before reaching politically-UNconnected buyers in the city.  In 1631, John Winthrop becomes the first Governor of Massachusetts.  In 1917, after only 32,000 Americans had volunteered to personally support the Wilson administration's desire to get involved in Europe's "World War I", the "Selective Service Act" is passed.  Despite a complete lack of Constitutional authority (and a plain prohibition in the 13th Amendment), the act purports to authorize conscription.  Subsequently, 2,800,000 American men were impressed into the army under the auspices of the act over the following two years.  Of those sent into battle, more than 116,000 were killed, and more than 205,000 sustained wounds but are categorized as survivors.  In 1927, a Michigan school-board member who blames a school-funding property-tax increase for foreclosure proceedings against his farm explodes bombs in and near a local school, killing 45 and injuring 58.  In 1974, India conducts its first nuclear weapon test detonation.

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.
