November 23- In 1876, corrupt Tammany Hall
politician "Boss" Tweed is extradited from Spain, to which he
fled to escape charges in New York. In 1936, the first edition
of Life magazine is published. In 1954, the Dow exceeds its
previous record high, which had been reached shortly before the
crash of 1929. In 1963, Doctor Who hits the airwaves for the
first time. In 1981, Ronald Reagan authorizes the CIA to
recruit, equip and train "Contra" rebels in Nicaragua. In 2011,
the president of Yemen agrees to resign in exchange for legal
immunity for past crimes.

You'd think that by now everyone in the so-called
"tax honesty" movement-- especially the leaders in that
community-- would have recognized and acknowledged that this
unprecedented refund-generating and manifestly government-feared
information is the path to liberation from the scourge of the
misapplied tax for everyone. You'd think that by now these
folks, and everyone else, would be speaking with one voice,
the simple truth about the tax.
SADLY, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU THOUGHT, YOU'D BE WRONG,
and what a shame that is. Were these
folks to have begun spreading the truth about the tax five years
ago, not one person without a legitimate liability would be
suffering the least bit of harassment or harm today by a tax
agency. Were these folks to do so today, five years from now (if
not sooner) not one person without a legitimate liability will
be suffering the least bit of harassment or harm by a tax
But rather than helping to achieve that happy goal,
these "tax honesty" leaders are not only not spreading the truth
about the tax, but some of them, at least, stubbornly continue
to inject strained and empty "theories" and "arguments" into
circulation through blog-posts, videos and emails. One of the
most common and vigorously-promoted categories of nonsense is in
regard to "jurisdiction."
TYPICALLY, THE "JURISDICTION" ARGUMENTS revolve
around assertions that jurisdictional limitations on the federal
government prevent it from being able to make or enforce claims
upon anyone not of a certain citizenship or a certain residency.
This assertion is usually accompanied by the supporting
proposition that somehow everyone being subjected to the income
tax nonetheless is being administratively found to be of that
certain citizenship and/or residency, even when they really are
by some arcane legal legerdemain involving Social Security numbers
or the act of filling out tax forms.
For instance, the argument will be made that the
federal government has no authority to make a claim of tax
liability against a Texan living in Texas, being only able,
according to the argument, to make claims against a
very-narrowly-defined class of "United States citizens" or
people resident in the District of Columbia or a US territory or
possesion. Thus, goes the argument, if the claim IS made, this
is done because the victim is being found by the court to
actually be a citizen and/or resident of DC, however vigorously
and comprehensively this status is disputed.
This bizarre argument will be made despite the many
of Texans defeating federal tax liability claims, and doing so
while acknowledging Social security number assignments, and with
no effort made to assert or dispute any particular citizenship
The argument will also be made with no evidence in
law or otherwise supporting its assertions about any of these
allegedly significant factors. Instead, reliance is placed on
tautological inferences-- assumptions used to support each other
in an intellectual effort at raising oneself up by one's own
It being imagined that the income tax is
citizenship- or residency-based, aspects of the law by which the
tax is applied will be assumed to be based on the assumption of
those status qualifications. These compound assumptions will be
shored up by out-of-context or incomplete excerpts from court
rulings and statutes or regulations, and especially the
assertion that things like having had a Social security number
assigned conveys or implies the allegedly-significant status.
Again, all of this will be done
in complete disregard of the actual and contradicting evidence.
AT BOTTOM, EVERY ONE OF THESE COMPLICATED
HOUSE-OF-CARDS CONSTRUCTIONS are grounded in a confusion over
the actual nature of the income tax in which the tax is
mistakenly imagined to be like tribute demanded by an ancient
king from his subjects. Were this true, jurisdictional
considerations of territory and citizenship WOULD be relevant,
and some explanation, however arcane, WOULD have to be found for
how the tax is applied in apparent disregard of these
But the tax is NOT tribute, and the taxing
authority is neither that of a king, nor applied based in any
way upon status-- which is why
all those concrete examples contradicting these propositions
are there to be seen. Instead, the tax is
an excise, and the "income" that it reaches is simply a
special class of receipts which are liable to tax due to the
federally-privileged character of the activity which produced
Here's a good model for understanding the tax: If
you use a federal lawnmower to cut other people's grass for
money, the feds get to claim a piece of your gains.
Understanding this to be the nature of the tax makes clear why
the tax can be claimed from Texans in Texas without any issues
of location or citizenship or need to rely on subterfuges or
legal gimmicks related to either-- the liability for the tax
goes wherever the federal lawnmower goes, and arises wherever
and whenever it is used to make a profit, regardless of by whom.
Understanding the federal-privilege-excise nature
of the tax also makes clear that to say, "I don't live within
your geographical area of authority;" or, "I'm not one of your
subjugated or duty-bound citizens," as is advocated by those who
promote these misunderstandings regarding jurisdiction, is a
meaningless response to an assertion of tax liability. All that
such declarations do is make clear to the taxing authority that
the speaker is clueless about the arena he or she is in-- it is
the pasting of a "Kick me!" sign on one's own back.
The only relevant
response to an assertion of tax liability is either, "Yes, I did
make money with your lawnmower," (followed by the calculation or
acknowledgement of a tax owed) or, "Wrong; I didn't make any
money with your lawnmower," (which is not to say one didn't make
money mowing lawns, but only that if so, it was done with one's
own equipment). Either one simply has to be done in a fashion
legally cognizable by the tax agency being addressed, which is
to say, by way of a return. (BTW, if you're a cyclist, you might
this model of the tax dynamic more appealing.)
I'M GOING TO CLOSE this discussion with an example
of a proper response to an assertion of tax liability by someone
who DOES know the law, and how to say she didn't use the
government's lawnmower to make her money last year. After
enjoying this latest display of accurate knowledge of the tax,
please make a big effort to ensure that every "tax honesty" guru
you are able to contact gets cleared up on the true nature of
the tax and joins in spreading that truth.
...and she knows how to meaningfully introduce that
fact into the record.
A few weeks ago the United States agreed, and
showed it in the most concrete fashion possible with this 100%
refund of EVERYTHING taken from Dana for federal taxes during
2014, Social Security and Medicare taxes included:
Here is the filing Dana made that produced this
acknowledgement and the return of her property and the power
that comes with it. As in every case, this filing and claim was
thoroughly vetted before being honored, per the protocols shown
The simple, straightforward,
endlessly-repeated reality of Dana's victory in invoking the
actual tax laws thanks to the knowledge she gained from reading
this bookis completely
unambiguous. What Dana acted upon are the real facts
about the tax.
ON THE OTHER HAND, and regarding those who AREN'T
doing their part to keep the state within the confines of the
law, I'm going to be blunt: any "tax guru" or "tax
professional" or bureaucrat or judge who disputes what is
CtC is a moron or a liar. And any "tax guru" who is telling
anyone anything other than exactly what is found in
CtC-- nothing more, nothing less, nothing different--
is actually part of the "tax dis-honesty movement".

November 24- In 1859,
Charles Darwin publishes 'On the Origin of Species'. In 1917, a
bomb explodes in Police headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
killing ten. In 1932, the FBI Crime Lab opens its doors. In
1963, Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of JFK, is shot by
Jack Ruby on live television; Lyndon Johnson declares his

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

Doreen was charged, remember, with
criminally-refusing to cede control of her expressions to the

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).

EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to

cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these

admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

The "War On Terror" Is The Hoax Foundation
Of The Police/Spy State
by Paul Craig Roberts
The “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived
by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. The American
people were too trusting and too gullible and, consequently,
Americans were easily betrayed by Washington and by the presstitute
The consequences of the deceit, gullibility, and
betrayal are horrendous for Americans, for millions of peoples in
the Middle East, Africa, Ukraine, and for Washington’s European
The consequences for Americans are an aborted
Constitution, a police/spy state and rising resentment and hatred of
America around the world.
The consequences for peoples in Somolia, Libya,
Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, and Ukraine
have been massive deaths and dislocations, infrastructure
destruction, internal conflicts, birth defects, invasions, bombings,
drones. Millions of peoples have been murdered by Washington’s
pursuit of hegemony, and millions have been turned into refugees.
The consequences for Washington’s European vassals is
that the millions of refugees from Washington’s wars are now
overrunning Europe, causing social and political discord and
threatening the European political parties that enabled, and
participated in, Washington’s massive war crimes in eight countries.
The populations of the eight countries and Washington’s
vassals are stuck with the consequences of Washington’s evil,
vicious, and illegal actions. And Americans are stuck with the
police/spy state and militarized police who murder three Americans
each day and brutalize countless others.
The countries we have destroyed have no recourse to
Our European vassals will have to provide from their
own pockets for the refugees that Washington’s wars are sending to
As for Americans, they seem to have settled into
acquiescence to the brutal police/spy state that has crowded out
freedom and democracy.
CONSIDER: Isn't it a shame that Dr. Roberts doesn't know
the truth about the income tax and therefore doesn't advise his
readers about the key mechanism provided by the Founders by which
the People can peacefully restrain the state, even when a monolithic
political class isn't interested in being restrained?
