Laying Blame For Every Ukrainian And Russian
Death In This War
...and for every extra penny you are paying at the gas
pump, and for the destabilization of world affairs, and the possible
collapse of the dollar, and the risk of nuclear holocaust.
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
a violent US-engineered
coup had overthrown the existing
Russia-friendly elected regime in early
the US had installed
hand-picked Russia-hostile American
puppets drawn from the neo-Nazis
population of the western part of the
country in that elected government's
the neo-Nazis had promptly
launched a campaign of violent
oppression against the eastern Ukrainian
population whose electoral will they had
the conflict between the
usurpers in Kiev and the disenfranchised
in eastern Ukraine momentarily halted in
late 2014 and early 2015 when the Kiev
regime-- under pressure from Russia,
Germany and France-- agreed to cede
autonomy to the the affected regions
(Donetsk and Luhansk), but this
agreement has been ignored ever since;
the neo-Nazi usurpers also
began lobbying hard for admission to
NATO (an alliance whose chief purpose is
the suppression of Russia), raising the
prospect of nuclear missiles being
placed a minute or two's flight time
Add to that summary that the US
had unilaterally abrogated the
Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in
2019, and has steadily indicated that NATO
membership was soon to be extended to
Also add that the
coup-installed government, now featuring the
elections from which the participation of
the Ukraine's eastern population was
excluded, is in no way a democracy (contrary
to the incessant propagandistic assertions
of every Western government and media
mouthpiece-- all of whom seem to be taking
bribes from Ukraine-- but wait, I'm getting
ahead of myself...). Tulsi Gabbard
summarizes THAT issue nicely here:
Some of the behavior to
which she apparently refers can be seen
discussed in detail
BUT I HAD LEFT ONE BIG PART OF
THE STORY OUT (because frankly, I was not
familiar with this significant detail). It
seems that in the years leading up to the US
State Department-engineered 2014 coup
disenfranchising the Russia-friendly
Ukrainian electoral majority, Ukrainian
oppositional interests had fed $millions in
donations to then-US Secretary of State
Here is a chart of foreign
donations to Hillary (and Bill's) "Clinton
Foundation" from 1999 to 2014 published by
the Wall Street Journal illustrating that
It's astonishing how many
wealthy foreigners in other countries are
obviously smitten with the good work of the
Clinton Foundation, isn't it? But let's
focus on Ukraine's entry.
One of the most important
things to add to what is conveyed by this
chart is that of the $10 million from
Ukrainian donors over the course of 1999 to
2014, at least $8.6 million-- 86% of the
total-- was donated by one oligarch,
billionaire Victor Pinchuk, during just the
five years leading up to Victoria Nuland and
company "investing" $5 billion of OUR money
to overthrow an elected government Victor
Pinchuk preferred to do without.
Those Pinchuk donations began
upon Hillary Clinton taking office as
Secretary of State in 2009, and were
completed in 2014, when Clinton's State
Department accomplished the overthrow of the
elected government of Ukraine, whose
policies Pinchuk opposed. How about that!
NOW, I'M NOT SAYING that the
remarkable coincidence of Victor Pinchuk
giving Hillary Clinton $8.6 million from
2009 to 2014-- the beginning of her taking
office as Secretary of State and the State
Department devoting $5 billion (which
belonged to the rest of us) to accomplishing
Victory Pinchuk's fond desire-- is anything
but a remarkable coincidence. I'm not
saying this is plain evidence, even if only
circumstantial, of utterly corrupt influence
I'll leave it to each reader to
come to his or her own conclusions.
But I WILL say that if it IS
the utterly corrupt influence peddling of
which it seems to reek-- the outcome of
which also happens to suit the well-known
interests of Russia hate-mongers in the
defense industries and certain domestic
political factions (and also to set up the
"foreign aid" kickback dynamic
here)-- then it would seem that the
death of every Ukrainian (and Russian)
victim of the ongoing war can be laid at the
feet of Hillary Clinton, Victoria Nuland and
Joe Biden (who apparently had oversight
responsibility for the coup).
The same responsibility can be
laid for every extra penny paid by any
American at the gas pump, for every
worry-line carved into anyone in the world
with enough brains to recognize
the danger of nuclear
holocaust resulting from the grossly
reckless reaction by US officials, the
media, and other so-called "western-aligned"
governments and organizations to the
situation (and their refusal to grasp or
acknowledge Russia's legitimate security
concerns-- on the subject of which
Vladimir Putin's February 24 address to his
country on the reasons for his actions
is very much worth reading), and for many
other current and future evils.
GOING FORWARD, and as the pain
and the peril deepen, let's keep one other simple
thing in mind: Every evil being
suffered by anyone from events in Ukraine
today could have been avoided by the much
adhering to the Minsk agreements to which
his government is signatory, or even just by
declaring his resolve to eschew NATO
membership and ensure Ukrainian neutrality
(BTW, Oliver Stone does a
valuable deep-dive into the relevant history
of Ukraine in his 2016 film, 'Ukraine
on Fire'. He adds significantly to the
picture with his follow-up film of 2019, 'Revealing
SOME FINAL THOUGHTS on this
really ugly subject to add to those above
and in last week's post, all of which I
deeply hope you all will share like your
lives depend on it, as they very well might:
WE NO MORE HAVE an American
national interest in the fate of Ukraine
than we did in the fate of Vietnam (and no
more of a risk of a "domino effect" in the
demilitarization and denazification of
Ukraine than we did in the defense of South
Vietnam from rule by communists). Anyone
saying otherwise, and that "Ukraine is just
the beginning...!" is a nutcase or a
LEAVING ASIDE ANY personal
profiteering from possible influence
peddling by the likes of Hillary Clinton
(and Hunter Biden and "the big guy"--
remember Burisma?), what is being played out
in the bigger picture way in the inherently
aggressive and threatening expansion of NATO
to the border of Russia is the "Wolfowitz
Doctrine" of the 1990s. This hubristic
fantasy holds that Washington has the
capacity, and the right, to suppress/prevent
the emergence of any substantial rival in
power and influence anywhere in the world,
by military force.
The doctrine is the
geopolitical equivalent of imposing gun
control or election-fixing to ensure that
outcomes are what you would prefer, rather
than striving to achieve them through honest
competition of ideas and examples and adhering to the best
and most prosperity-yielding principles. It
resorted to by small minds who have no love
of freedom and simply don't understand what
led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
is particularly pernicious that this cramped
and clouded view is being deployed against a
Russia made up of the very virtuous people
who not long ago threw off a tyrannical
state of the same sort that adherence to the
"Wolfowitz doctrine" has caused to take root
here in America.
THE EVILS EMBRACED by anyone
relying on a militaristic suppression of
competition are many, not least of which are
the inevitable smothering of civil society
in propaganda and the aggrandizement of the
bellicose "deep state". But more
importantly, the ambition of the "Wolfowitz
doctrine" is impossible-- even beyond the
perverse transformation of America herself
into the very enemy of her own principles
against which the doctrine is supposed to
Current events make this
impossibility clear, with China about to
eclipse the USA economically, and Russia
already overmatching the US militarily. (You
don't hear NBC reporting on
hypersonic weapons, for some reason, but
they're aimed at us, nonetheless...) Our
hegemonic competition has already emerged,
and that toothpaste can't be put back into
the tube. Pretending otherwise just further
distorts domestic politics and the erosion
of Constitutional rule of law at home, and
produces needless death and destruction like
what is going on in Ukraine.
RUSSIA JUST WANTS TO FEEL SAFE,
and to sell oil and gas to Europe.
Washington should review the sandbox rules
it was supposed to have learned in
Kindergarten and hit the reset button. The
unipolar moment could have persisted had the
United States stuck to
George Washington's foreign policy wisdom
and played fair and square with everyone.
But it did not.
Russia and China are now
showing us that the unipolar moment has been
squandered and has passed. Washington needs
to stop pretending otherwise and start
figuring out how to make the best of the new
situation without impoverishing the American
people or even getting us all killed.
LASTLY, and without meaning to
divert anyone from the highly-important task
of sharing all the foregoing with everyone
possible, I want to mention the possibility
that, whether in any way planned for that
purpose or simply being taken advantage of
as the exploitable crisis du jour,
the Ukraine affair may well serve as cover
for a more insidious threat to the
well-being of Americans (and everyone
else)-- if we let it continue to hold the
attention of society at large as it is now
The insidious threat to which I
refer is that of the creepy technocratic
schemers at the "World Economic Forum"-- and
those operatives with which they have
infested positions of power and influence
here and in other countries. I have posted
about this threat periodically over the last
few years (see here,
for instance), and have just seen a nice
reminder video by JP Searle, posted below.
Again, don't let this
digression interfere with sharing the facts
and perspectives on the Ukraine war, above--
the need to do so is as immediate and as
serious as a heart attack. But watch JP's
reminder, as well-- the threat it highlights
offers a good and important reason for
everyone to tamp down mightily on Ukraine
insanity so that attention can be turned
from the fire in the attic to the snake pit
in the basement.
NOTE: Remember, as explained in
last week's newsletter, there won't be
another edition until ~the end of the month.

THIS VIDEO PROJECTS THE PROGRESS of a nuclear exchange between Russia and
the United States. It's frightening, as it should
be, as well as sobering and instructive. My only
criticisms are, first of all, that it fails to
account for the imbalance that will now be present
in any such exchange due to
the new Russian
Secondly, the video fails to account
for China's contribution to the exchange against the
US, which is a virtual certainty. China knows that
if Russia goes, and the US survives, it goes soon
after. So, that will not be allowed to happen.

Fear and Loathing in
The Biden Administration’s
Crimes Against Humanity
by Philip Giraldi
One can frequently
disagree with government policies without
necessarily regarding them with disgust, but
the Joe Biden Administration has turned that
corner, first with its senseless promotion
of a new Cold War that could turn hot with
Russia and, more recently, with its actions
undertaken to undermine and punish
Afghanistan. The fact that the White House
wraps itself in the sanctimonious,
self-righteous twaddle that is so much the
hallmark of the political left is bad
enough, but when the government goes out of
its way to harm and even kill people around
the world in pursuit of an elusive global
dominance it is time for the American people
to rise up and say “Stop!”
As a former CIA
operations officer, I departed government
service in 2002 in part due to the impending
invasion of Iraq, which I knew was
completely unjustified by the web of largely
fabricated information that was flowing out
of the Pentagon to justify the attack. In
the years since I have been appalled by the
Obama era attacks on Syria and Libya as well
as by the assassinations and cruise missile
strikes carried out under Donald Trump. But
all of that was a Sunday in the park
compared to the hideous nonsense being
pursued by Biden and his crew of reprobates.
Trifling with the use of force as part of
negotiations intended to go nowhere over
Ukraine could well by misstep, false flag or
even design escalate into nuclear war ending
much of the life on this planet as we know
it, and we are now also witnessing the cold,
calculated slaughter of possibly hundreds of
thousands of civilians just because we have
the tools at hand and believe that we can
get away with it. What we are seeing unfold
right in front of us goes beyond appalling
and it is time to demand a change of course
on the part of a runaway federal government
that is drunk on its own self-assumed
unbridled right to exercise total executive
authority over vital issues of war and
I am most
particularly shocked and dismayed over what
the Biden Administration did to Afghanistan
on February 11th, which is unambiguously a
crime against humanity. On that day the
President of the United States Joe Biden,
still smarting from the botched departure
from Afghanistan and low approval ratings,
issued an executive order invoking emergency
powers stipulating that the $7 billion in
Afghan government money being held and
frozen in the Federal Reserve Bank of New
York would be retained by the US and divided
Half of the $7
billion would be placed in a US government
administered trust fund. The money would in
theory go to fund humanitarian relief in
Afghanistan to be carried out by agencies
unidentified but presumed to be acting in
coordination with the barracudas at the
Treasury Department while the other half
would go to benefit the victims of 9/11.
This money is not just “frozen assets,” it
is the entire reserve of the Afghan central
bank, and its appropriation by the US will
destroy whatever remains of the formal
Afghan economy, making Afghanistan entirely
reliant on small rations of foreign aid that
come through channels unconnected with the
The other half of
the story is that Afghanistan had nothing to
do with 9/11 but instead became a victim of
the US lust for revenge. After 9/11, the
Taliban government offered to turn over
Osama bin Laden to the United States if
Washington were able to provide evidence
that he was somehow involved in the attacks
in New York and Virginia. The George W. Bush
Administration was unable to do so, but
chose to invade instead.
"Those who can make you believe
absurdities can make you commit atrocities."
AS USUAL, GIRALDI MAKES GOOD
POINTS, well-informed and on the right side
of the issue. Also as usual-- of Giraldi and
most every other pundit properly awake to
the corruption in Washington and the peril
it represents to us all if left unchecked--
though expressly declaring, "...it is time
for the American people to rise up and say
“Stop!”," Giraldi offers no prescription for
how this "stopping" is to be done.
Every pundit ringing the alarm
bell-- and they are now legion-- seems to
imagine that merely encouraging a widespread
discontent will somehow prompt a spontaneous
(and beneficial) revolution. But time has
proven this to be hoped in vain.
Just knowing the pot is growing
warmer never prompts the frog to jump out,
and especially when (if I might be forgiven
for expanding the metaphor) the cooks have
grown expert at tossing juicy flies into the
water as needed to distract or take the edge
off any awakening to the imminence of the
Further, a substantial portion
of any society will NEVER "rise up"-- some
because they feel aligned with the cooks for
whatever reason, and some because they just
don't have that kind of character.
EVERYONE WILL ACT to minimize the
amount they contribute to the growth and
maintenance of the Leviathan state which
is-- either directly, or through the uses to
which it is put-- the source of the peril of
which pundits like Giraldi warn. That's
universal human nature at work, and it
marshals enormous energy, creativity and
persistence on its behalf.
Happily, and unlike nearly
every other solution to an overgrown state
that might be dreamed up or advocated, the
Founders and Framers-- who enjoyed a
uniquely complete understanding of both the
hazards against which they were providing
and the nature of the state in which any
solution must operate-- hardwired into the
taxing provisions of the federal
Constitution the means by which individual
self-interest can be harnessed to suppress
Leviathan's growth (or shrink it back down
to safer dimensions).
For decades now, since the
1950s, in fact, a concerted effort to
obscure that hardwired solution has been
underway. For most of those decades the
corrupt effort was an unmitigated success.
But in 2003 the concealment scheme was
revealed along with the state-restraining
solution it was meant to neutralize.
We CAN effectively rise up and
say “Stop!”. Tens of thousands have been
doing so for many years now, and tens of
millions-- enough to really put on the
brakes before we all go over the cliff
edge-- can be brought to join in simply by
informing them how the law provides for
their attention to their own self-interest,
despite strenuous efforts by
Leviathan-beneficiaries over the decades to
pretend that it does not, and to convince
the American people of this enervating
ALL THAT THE GOOD AMONG US NEED
DO is share

most vigorous and diligent way possible,

How long it will take before
that effort really pays off is uncertain. It
might be a while.
Or... maybe not.
After all, once some energetic
and creative lovers of the republic and the
rule of law see to it that all the Philip
Giraldis and the Joe Rogans and the Matt
Walshs and the Glenn Greenwalds and the Lew

sharing it in turn, we'll see a groundswell
become a tidal wave, virtually overnight.

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country
to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored
hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood
and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor
at that kind of work.
When I have asked all of you for what I
firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball
downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice
and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple
testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you
but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking
from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people
answer my call.
I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to
be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive
or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and
toward research, analysis and educational presentations
that will benefit everyone already in this community.
I need time to do some suing, and to bring together
the resources and talent toward that end.
As said, it is my firm belief that your
testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make
big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing
I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying
to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have
led them. Your words, in your great numbers and all
in your own different ways, will do that better than
anything I write possibly could.
And yet, you are not providing them. This,

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching
my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age
in their careers had run into a wall common to all but
the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good,
and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard
work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with
a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to
risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging
back from seizing the main chance when it appeared,
and driving for the goal.
My solution was to post on the wall of
our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline,
the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if
you don't take a shot.
That's how it is here, too. If you don't
stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score
Here is what my kids live by now, in their
own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all
the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of
a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard,
or go home.
You, too. Go hard, or go home.
Send those videos.
Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories
to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading
the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words,
too. It IS a lot.
But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder
the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we
obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would
be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom
should not be highly rated.”
We each have our reasons, and our story.

It's time to take off the bushel and

I would like you to think about what it
is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day,

to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't
yet understand what this is all about.

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.
Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes,
and keep in mind that the purpose is
not to educate,
but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will
be one of many to be shared. If you need to go
longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long
or short I may edit if something strikes me as
wandering or off-key or unacceptable).
You needn't feel any obligation to be profound,
and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the
law, other than to say that you have read it and you
know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere,
and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience
want to have what you have, and to be where you are
in your heart.
Don't talk to ME, or to others in the
CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited
to the NON-CtC-educated
community, and at the same time, be mindful that
you're speaking to an audience that doesn't yet know
ANYTHING about the subject, and whose first reaction
is, "This must be illegal; this must be dangerous;
this is too good to be true." You want to pull that
audience right past such things, and straight to a
focus on truth, morality, and our American heritage
of liberty and the rule of law, but without getting
technical in any way.
Reassure as though you were
reassuring your children about something--
not condescending or preachy, but staying
out of the weeds. Speak of principles, not
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
Speak about rights. Speak about morality,
and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person
to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution.
Speak about everyone's duty
to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar
only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation
to respect yourself, and to look out for the current
and future well-being of your children and your fellow
citizens. Speak of
CtC, and what its information has done for your
understanding and resolve. Show the book.
If you have had victories, describe them.
Better still, show them, if possible.
Be clear about just what you accomplished:
EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all;
a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper
agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't
subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in
was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s;
or whatever happened.
When you speak of state victories, name
the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax
agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!
If you're in a battle now, speak of your
resolve to uphold the law, come what may--
why you're not discouraged, and why you are not
standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and
not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand
that the company of grown-up activist Americans they
are being invited to join cuts across all demographics
and all interests-- with the common denominator being
respect for the law and love of the principles on which
this great country was founded.
This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.
We've all had frustrating occasions of
trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family
member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall
of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is
your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks
who have themselves decided that it's time for them
to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your
testimonial for exactly that reason.
Further, think about this: You want judges,
bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you
work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else
to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly.
How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?
You want these folks to learn the truth.
Why would they even recognize that there is a truth
to be learned if you won't attest to having learned
it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and
chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and
checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen
the government evasions and you know that the tax is
not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants
everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited
thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.
Again, if you have victories to show, that's
nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have
victories to display in order to declare your knowledge
of what the law says. I've never flown around the world,
but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments,
and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...
Even those of you who haven't yet studied
CtC have surely read
this short document, and have verified everything
in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring
its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again,
if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will
ever even bother to look at the facts?
Be the change you want to see in the world,
or there won't be any change.

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As
Falling Off A Bike
To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works,
try this little exercise:
Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob,
who lives down the street from you in a town that is
really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting,
deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking,
bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in
Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting
business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and
away the biggest business in town.
Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract
business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders
who have signed an agreement with him, or even just
those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time
anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd
combination of circumstances that took many years to
Here's how it happened...
Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather
of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started
out not only with a main location for his contract business--
he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around
town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the
more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone
could take and use one of these bikes, but they were
expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob
a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate
rent), periodically. The initial design of the form
was like this:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
At Bob's rental
rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______
I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these
occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's
true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to
miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up
the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around
handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms"
to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied
by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone
riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he
would sue the company involved-- said:
You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know
What You’re Fighting About
If you are having an argument
with the IRS or any other tax agency,
You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate
You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign
You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion
You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject
is never identified.
You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists
that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply--
even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect,
and CAN be corrected.

YOU Decide To "Let Someone Else Do It"?

Doing A Little High-Payoff Math
IF EACH PERSON receiving this newsletter each week distributed as
few as 100 of any of
the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends,
neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in
the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans
suddenly introduced to the liberating truth about the tax!
Just like that! In one week!
C'mon, people, let's roll on this!
“Most of the important things in the
world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when
there seemed to be no hope at all.”
When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.
I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention
and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write
as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend
Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated
with, the text you are reading, follow it!
It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered
with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions
or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original
material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't
understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent
to the original text.
It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are
confident that they are familiar with language or references within
the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over
included links. I do it all the time, myself!
However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory
purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is
generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative
material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding
of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding
of the original page. (Links to
CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:
March 8- In 1775, Thomas Paine publishes his article
'African Slavery In America', calling for the emancipation of all slaves
and the abolition of the abominable institution. In 1817, the New York
Stock Exchange is founded. In 1924, 172 coal miners are killed in an
accident near Castle Gate, Utah. In 1978, the first radio episode of
'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' broadcasts. In 1979, the Compact
Disc debuts. In 1980, the Soviet Union enjoys its first rock music
A Wise Warrior With An

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:
March 9- In 1776, Adam Smith publishes
'The Wealth of Nations'. In 1841, the United States Supreme Court rules in the
Amistad case that the enslavement of the Africans who had gained control of the
ship on which they were being transported was illegal. In 1916, Mexican General
Pancho Villa attacks a detachment of the 13th United States Cavalry Regiment in
Columbus, New Mexico. In 1933, FDR sends an "Emergency Banking Act" (largely
drafted by the Hoover administration) to Congress, which is passed and signed
into law that same day. Disturbingly similar to the current "bailout" programs,
it set the stage for the prolongation (and deepening) of the Great Depression
for another 12 years (when a hands-off approach and the restoration of sound,
precious-metal-backed currency would have seen the economy recovering on its own
within 18 months to two years). In 1945, the Allies begin fire-bombing Tokyo in
a campaign that kills 100,000-- the vast majority of whom are civilians. In
1959, "Barbie" hits the toy shelves.
An old joke, but in regard to this deceiver,
not a laughing matter at all.
Illuminating anniversaries of this week:
March 10- In 1804, France formally
transfers ownership of the Louisiana Territory to the United States. In 1831,
the French Foreign Legion is established. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell tells
Mr. Watson he needs him. In 1880, the Salvation Army arrives in America and
begins its good work. In 1906, a coal-dust explosion kills 1099 miners in
northern France. In 1922, Mahatma Gandhi is arrested by British Indian
occupation forces for "sedition" and is tried, convicted, and sentenced to six
years imprisonment. In 2000, the NASDAQ index peaks at 5132.52. In 2017, South
Korea's Constitutional Court unanimously upholds the impeachment of President
Park Geun-hye, ending her presidency. In 2020, the "World Health Organization"
declares the "COVID-19" outbreak to be a pandemic.

deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battle
is your calling, and peace has become sin; you must,
at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions

It never did and it never will. Find out just what any
people will quietly submit to and you have the exact
measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed
on them, and these will continue till they have been

limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of
those whom they suppress."
March 11- In 1708, Queen Anne of Great
Britain vetoes the "Scottish Militia Bill" for fear the militia thus authorized
would be unreliable in its subservience to the crown. It is the last time that
a British monarch has exercised the veto power against an act of Parliament. In
1918, the first confirmed cases of the "Spanish Flu" pandemic are observed in
Queens, New York. Over the next two years, somewhere between 20 million and 100
million will die from the disease worldwide-- mostly young adults, due to an
idiosyncrasy of the strain's effect on its host. In 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev
assumes power in the Soviet Union. In 1990, Patricio Aylwin is sworn in as the
first democratically-elected president of Chile since 1970. In 1993, Janet
Reno, who rose to prosecutorial prominence by imprisoning lots of people in
Florida on manifestly fictitious child-molestation charges, and later went on to
slaughter children and their parents in Waco, Texas, is confirmed as United
States Attorney General by the U.S. Senate. In 2021, Joe Biden sings into law a
$1.9 trillion reduction in the value of all American wealth by which it is hoped
that the harm from insane "COVID-19" policies put in place from March of 2020
forward can be papered over.
March 12- In 1912, the American Girl
Guides organization (later "Girl Scouts of the USA") is founded. In 1930,
Gandhi begins leading marchers on a 200-mile trek to the sea to begin making
salt from seawater in defiance of a British revenue-generating legal monopoly on
the substance. In 1947, President Harry Truman proclaims his "containment of
communism" doctrine to Congress, a major step into the Cold War. In 1993, North
Korea announces its withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. In
2011, a reactor at the Fukishima Daiikai Nuclear Power Plant in Japan melts and
CtC WARRIOR SanDiegoScott has put together

friends and family! Test your accountant and tax attorney, and help
them learn the liberating truth!!
"Never must thou take up a false cry, or join hands
with the guilty by giving false witness in their favor. Never must
thou follow with the crowd in doing wrong, or be swayed by many
voices so as to give false judgment; even pity for the poor must
not sway thee when judgment is to be given."
Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

ends. In 1954, the Viet Minh attack the French at Dien Bien Phu, In 1962,
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer delivers the plans for
'Operation Northwoods' to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. The plan calls
for a series of staged terrorist attacks in American cities false-flagged as
Cuban, in order to drum up American public acquiescence to a United States
attack on the Castro regime. In 1986, Microsoft offers its stock for public
purchase. In 2008, gold sells on the New York Mercantile Exchange for $1,000.00
per ounce for the first time. In 2013, Pope Francis is elected to succeed the
abdicating Benedict XVI by a papal conclave whose proceedings were spied on by
the United States National Security Agency.
