I NEED YOUR HELP KEEPING THE RECORD STRAIGHT!!
Among much else you're about to enjoy in this latest edition of the Lost Horizons News will be the latest demonstrations of the fact that what is presented on this website and in 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' about the income tax is the complete and exclusive truth. These are not legally-meaningless, bullet-dodging acquittals, or hair-splitting analyses of something found (or imagined to be found) in some portion of the law. Instead, they are concrete, sometimes initially (and sometimes elaborately) contested acknowledgements-- in a wide variety of forms-- by the IRS and (so far) 33 state tax agencies of the fundamental, comprehensive and singular accuracy of the information found in, and only in, CtC. After reading them, you will sit back in your chair with the same quiet confidence you have enjoyed ever since you first learned the truth for yourself.
You will reflect upon the endless series of victories being won by those who act upon the knowledge gained from this site and CtC. You will reflect upon the hundreds and hundreds of documents of state and federal authorities posted on this site acknowledging and confirming what you have learned. You will chuckle wryly at the fact that even throughout the hundreds of pages of legal briefs and declarations and allegations filed by the government in its multi-year effort to frighten you and everyone else away from CtC by its corrupt assaults on Pete Hendrickson, there is not a single effort made in any of them to actually dispute what is taught about the law in the book, despite prodigious efforts to imply such a challenge.
For instance, if ever there was an occasion to actually declare that "Hendrickson says his earnings are not "wages", but that is wrong because all earnings of those working for someone else are "wages"", it would be in the course of these assaults. And yet, throughout hundreds of pages of elaborate filings (to characterize their deliberately confusing complexity in the most charitable way possible)-- and in venues where it is obliged to make its best case, and has no credible reason for anything but simple frankness-- the government which aches to have you and everyone else BELIEVE that this is so, and ACT as though this is so, just CAN'T and WON'T declare that this is so.
If ever there was a time to just say plain out that "Hendrickson says not everyone working for someone else is an "employee" within the meaning of that term in chapter 24 of the IRC, but that is wrong-- everyone working for someone else IS an "employee" within the meaning of that term in chapter 24 of the IRC", this would be the time. And yet, throughout hundreds of pages of elaborate filings-- and in a venue where it is obliged to make its best case, and has no credible reason for anything but simple frankness-- the government which aches to have you and everyone else BELIEVE that this is so, and ACT as though this is so, just CAN'T and WON'T make that plain and frank declaration.
If ever there was a time to say, "Hendrickson's wrong about the significance, effect, and utility of a tax return (and we have exercised our authority to change, override or disregard returns such as the Hendricksons')", this would be the time. And yet, throughout hundred of pages of elaborate filings-- and in a venue where it is obliged to make its best case, and has no credible reason for anything but simple frankness-- the government which aches to have you and everyone else BELIEVE that this is so, and ACT as though this is so, just CAN'T and WON'T make that plain and frank declaration.
Instead, the government's ENTIRE "argument" is: "So-and-so (whoever typed up a couple of W-2s) says Hendrickson was an "employee", and that his earnings were "wages"". That's it (well, plus refusing to let the jury in the criminal assault see the actual words of the definitional statutes, and instead instructing it to work off prosecution-written "substitute" definitions in deliberations, while still never having found anyone it could put on the stand to testify that Hendrickson was an "employee" as that term is defined in the law, or earned "wages"... and a bunch of other kangaroo gymnastics, come to think of it...).
Instead, the government 1. Simply lost its first four attacks; 2. was forced to resort to begging the court to order Peter and Doreen Hendrickson to change their returns, and to command them to not file inconvenient returns in the future; and 3. stoops to the evasions and falsities described above in its latest effort to scare you away. That's it.
In short, as has been consistently true in every effort the government has made to discourage people from learning the liberating truth since CtC first appeared, everything the government DOES say, and everything it carefully does not, simply acknowledges that truth, and emphasizes the fact that the only answer the government and other beneficiaries of the "income" tax scheme have to CtC is bluster, belligerence and BS.
ANYWAY... You'll reflect on all these things, and then you'll download your email and find your "inbox" filled with lies, distortions and distractions about the tax, Pete Hendrickson and/or CtC itself ranging from the merely foolish to the outright fraudulent, and everything in between. Or you'll visit your newsgroups, and see the same.
When you do, I NEED YOU TO HELP SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT!!! I can't do this myself (even if I devoted myself to this exclusively, I couldn't possibly respond to it all, and I would then not be able to produce my ongoing educational material...).
Again, I simply can't deal with all the trollery alone. PLEASE do all you can to help.
P. S. Some of you DO make the effort to help already, and your efforts are much appreciated. This admonishment is not directed to you, of course, nor to those of you who are new to all of this...
