January 18- In 1788, the first shiploads of English convicts
arrive at Botany Bay in Australia. In 1861, Georgia becomes the fifth of the
several states to secede from the Union. In 1896, the world gets its first look
at an X-ray machine. In 1911, an aircraft lands on a ship for the first time
(Eugene Ely pilots a plane onto the deck of the USS Pennsylvania in San
Francisco harbor). In 1990, Washington, D.C. mayor Marion Barry is arrested for
drug possession. In 1998, the Clinton-Lewinsky affair is revealed by an
internet news outlet. In 2012, the effort by the United States to compromise
the freedom and integrity of the internet under the "Stop Online Piracy Act" and
the "Protect Internet Privacy Act" is met with a coordinated "Blackout Day" in
protest by numerous major internet operations. In 2018, a false emergency
warning of an impending missile strike (imagined to be a nuclear missile from
Korea) caused a widespread panic in Hawaii (and yet Hawaiians for some reason
have never been up in arms-- or panicked-- regarding the perpetual provocations
of enormously-nuclear-armed Russia by every administration since the Clinton era
in the 1990s, and especially during the Trump administration).

A Stinging Rebuke; And A Shameful Hypocrisy
The "pandemic" is a lie. The official responses are ruinous
and illegal-- even Michigan's Supreme Court says so in no uncertain
terms. It's time and past time to stop being an enabler and start being
a rock on which the tide of despotism breaks.
Tens of thousands of Italian business owners
and hundreds of thousands of patrons defy lockdown in a simultaneous,
"We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!" starting
this past Friday. See the video report here.
Pleased for the Italians, that is.
WERE TWITTER NOT obnoxiously confined to little more than
bumper-sticker volumes of text (unlike, for instance, GAB which
unfortunately was down last night due to the flood of new signs-ups
going on-- follow my GAB feed here)
I would have gone on to say:
Good for the Italians! But I thought AMERICA
was the land of the free and home of the brave... Learn the truth about
the pandemic here.
Seriously. After watching that video report on the fed-up,
and grown-up, Italians, think about the rebuke their courage offers to
American timidity and acquiescence in the face of
uniformly illegal "lockdown"
HOW PATHETIC WE ARE in our supposed "leadership of the free
world". We are proving unworthy of the liberty won for us by the
sacrifices of our ancestors-- and this is why it is being so easily
stolen away from us.
Last week Michigan
Governor Gretchen Whitmer's right-hand henchwoman Attorney General Dana
Nessel snootily and opportunistically charged former Republican
governor Rick Snyder with criminal willful neglect of duty. The charges
concern the response of the Snyder administration to a long-festering problem with the city
water supply in Flint, Michigan, and a persistent Legionnaire's disease
infection in Flint's McLaren Hospital.
It's an odd kind of charge to begin with; that kind of
sniping from a succeeding administration against a predecessor is rare.
Further, Nessel's own boss and fellow-traveler, Gretchen Whitmer, could
easily be charged with a similar offense in regard to at least the
McLaren issue, which continues to this day. But that's not the real
HERE'S THE THING: Nessel's charge specifically accuses Rick
Snyder over his willful neglect of "his mandatory legal duties under the
Michigan constitution and the Emergency Management Act, thereby failing
to protect the health and safety of Flint's residents," per Michigan
Solicitor General Fadwa Hammoud as quoted in
the January 14 Detroit News.
Just three months ago Michigan's Emergency Powers Of
Governor Act-- the precursor to the Emergency Management Act--
was found to be
unconstitutional by Michigan's Supreme Court. The case involved was
brought against Gretchen Whitmer's unlawful reliance upon the EPGA's
purported authority in issuing her blizzard of invalid "lockdown" and
"mask-mandate" edicts over the last ten months.
Nessel has studiously ignored the ruling and declined to
bring charges against Whitmer for her defiance in continuing to issue
exactly the same orders (now through the mouth of a subordinate). This
neglect is a despicable hypocrisy.
Snyder may or may not have done wrong-- future legal
proceedings will provide the opportunity for that determination to be
made. But Whitmer surely is doing so, and
But the latter offenses, which are being committed RIGHT
NOW, and which-- unlike the handling of the Flint issues-- actually can
be mitigated, with the destruction and contempt for the law brought to
heel, RIGHT NOW are being ignored. Apparently, this is because Whitmer's
offenses are those of Nessel's political ally, or because Nessel herself
approves of the crimes.
AT LEAST NESSEL'S SELECTIVE EXERCISE of her office may
bring us to an apt irony, as well. It has to be imagined that her own
successor may end up bringing charges against Nessel herself for
criminal neglect of duty, in turn (and for her more directly personal
crimes of pretending that Whitmer's edicts can be lawfully enforced).
That's not much of a happy thought, it must be admitted...
But times are very bad in Michigan right now, thanks to
Whitmer's defiance of the law and Nessel's negligence. It's good to
think that the future holds at least one thing to which we can all look

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR 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
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

resources offered on this site and in my other work of any value to you?
Tim Kendrick has posted
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.
All-in-all, just be the sort of person for others
that you would go to yourself for trustworthy leadership.
Leadership is a challenge. But it's not
complicated, and you can do it.
Are You Having Trouble Spreading The
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
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...

We’re well into a serious case of panic-driven
pandemic, powered by fear, sustained by arrival of seasonal flu, and amplified by
One group — the newsies and politicians — have
something else to fear besides just the virus. That’s the public
reaction when folks finally realize how those people have bamboozled
them into abject poverty,
270 million facing starvation, and even death.
Because it’s not the virus that’s causing this,
it’s the pseudo-scientific
Narrative Pandemic with its lockdowns, etc, foisted on us by the
political class and amplified by a compliant corps of MSM (Main Stream
In fact anti-mask-and-lockdown riots in such
refined countries as
France, Spain, Italy,
Chile, to name a few, suggest those two classes of ne’er-do-wells
have good reason to be nervous.
And, in case you think the dissenters are just
an uninformed rabble — and I’m undependable fake news — as of December
23, 2020, there are more than 760,000 folks, including 39,384 Medical
practitioners, 13,035 Medical & Public Health Scientists and 709,443
concerned citizens — so far —
who signed The
Great Barrington Declaration, dissing The Establishment’s alarmist,
misleading and destructive handling of COVID-19.
It says in part,
“Current lockdown policies are producing
devastating effects on short and long-term public health … with the
working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest
burden.” and “with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”
…”Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other
harms, including influenza. ” …”Those who are not vulnerable should
immediately be allowed to resume life as normal."
And there’s the economic devastation, mentioned
previously, as well – – –
So now, more than ever, the newsies and elected
prevaricators desperately need to defend their destructive policies and
find confirmations supporting their COVID-19 legends, myths and
bald-faced lies, especially their
10 times more devastating than the virus and
Or they need to imagine more confirmations into
existence. They seem to have a preference for the imagination route,
probably because that’s easier — and legitimate supporting evidence for
the Official Narrative is hard to find.
So, the thing to remember when you see any
politician or MSM newsie with lips moving about “THE PANDEMIC,” whatever
comes out is likely powered by the need to confirm their previous
COVID-19 legends, myths and lies and will likely be wrong, distorted and
usually legitimate-evidence free.
WHITE DOES A NICE JOB of exposing and holding up to scorn the
childish disinformation programs of media co-conspirators involved in fanning
the "pandemic" panic. Indeed, White's challenge in illuminating the bs is so
slight that the more important issue is thereby illuminated: How or why can
ANYONE be taken in by this twaddle?
Aren't we all so thoroughly schooled by the
government-issue bs of the same flavor over the last twenty years on
false flag or misrepresented events like 9/11, the 2007-2008 financial
meltdown, the Iranian nuclear weapons hoax, the Syrian chemical attack
hoax; the "Skripal" and "Navalny" poisoning hoaxes (and lately the
"Hunter Biden crime assertions are Russian disinformation" and "massive
Russian hack attack" hoaxes)-- just to mention a few-- that no one in
the country is still naive enough to believe a single
state-power-serving thing said by these media hacks? Who, over the age
of ten, can still not reflexively reject everything said by such folks?
Unfortunately, there are more than a few so afflicted with
delusions. Among other reasons, with the C19 hoax having managed to drum
on for as long as it has, many have become emotionally-invested in the
lies. For instance, every person who let their mother or father or husband or wife die
alone in a hospital last spring has a profound incentive to tolerate no
internal doubts and vocally defend the "plague" narrative on which they
relied in letting such crimes be committed without at least a storm of
Others, of course, have been part and parcel of the
narrative, even without knowing it was eyewash and Kool-Aid. Many
healthcare workers fall into this category (and in natural fashion, many
members of the families of these folks). For the most part, these folks
just bought into whatever Tony Fauci said on TV without doing any
critical thinking or investigative research which would have raised
Told that any and all symptoms of the common flu were
indications of C19 (and that the virus was everywhere) these folks just
diagnosed accordingly. It has been only the rare critical thinkers among
them that looked askance at official assertions and resorted to their
own observations and expertise (like those 39,384 medical practitioners
and 13,035 medical & public health scientists who have signed the Great

AT THE SAME TIME, I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
