Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

November 28- In 1895, the first American automobile race is run-- 54 miles of thunder and speed.  The winner hit the finish line after approximately 10 hours of hard driving.  In 1907, scrap-metal dealer Louis B. Mayer opens his first movie theater.  In 1979, an Air New Zealand DC 10 crashes at full speed into Mt. Erebus, Antarctica, due to a navigation error, killing all 257 on board.  As can be plainly seen from the image below, actual high-speed large-commercial-aircraft crashes leave a whole lot of obvious wreckage:

HEY, People!

Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things, especially in recognition of the fact that my posts are heavily suppressed. They will NOT get out if you don't get them out.

Remember, we won't win by only YOU knowing what I present. We will win by LOTS OF OTHERS knowing what I present.

'Tis The Season For Victories By The Good Over The Bad...

...and I have a very pleasing such victory to share!

IN MARCH OF 2121, the excellent Ruben of California was minding his own business like every good American should when there appeared before him an unexpected sight. It was a ghost of Christmases past-- the spittle-flecked, chain-rattling specter of a junk-yard dog whose tag bore the cryptic runes: IRS.

Ruben remembered well the years gone by in which the sight of this crooked and mangy beast had struck fear into his heart.

This time, however, even though in its yellowed and carious fangs the grim and grimy cur clutched a paper titled "Notice of Deficiency":

...by which it was alleged that contrary to his own testimony of having received $0 in "income" during 2017, Ruben had actually received more than $61K in "income" that year and owed $8,633.00 in tax, Ruben just smiled and muttered, "Game on."

Not quite a year-and-a-half later, a new vision had appeared. This time Ruben was visited by a right jolly old elf, laden with gifts. The government effort to scam thousands of dollars from Ruben to which it had no claim collapsed into an admission that no deficiency existed, yielding a Tax Court ruling in Ruben's favor, last month:

Merry Christmas, Ruben!!

ONE IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION needs to be made so no one is misled by the "nor overpayment due to" portion of the ruling above. Ruben has already received the overpayment he had claimed in the filing involved:

As seen, the refund had been diverted as a credit against an alleged balance owed for another year, which Ruben disputes. In addition to petitioning for the voiding of the deficiency allegation, Ruben had asked the court to order his "collected" overpayment converted to a check.

The government had argued in response that recovery of that already-refunded-but-diverted overpayment had to be by a legal action specifically addressing the prior year "balance due" allegation, which was not relevant to the notice of deficiency at issue in the instant case (and which therefore would not be within the Tax Court's jurisdiction in this case). In conference with the government's attorney upon announcing its intention to surrender its deficiency claim, Ruben recognized the merits of that argument and agreed to take the overpayment issue off the table on which it never really belonged in the first place.

OF MATERIALS IN THE CASE, I think those of broadest interest and usefulness to this audience are Ruben's Petition (find it here); his January 10, 2022 Motion for Default and Entry of Decision in Petitioner's Favor, and Motion to Order Refund of Amount Collected (find it here); and his April 5, 2022 Declaration of Facts (in the end never filed, but informative, nonetheless-- find it here). Exhibits to these pleadings have been omitted, but their nature and contents are specified in the citing documents.

All-in-all I think we can say that Ruben has stuck in his thumb and pulled out a plum, leaving the junk-yard dog to gnaw on coal this year. Each outcome couldn't have happened to a more deserving party.

"All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed."

--I. F. Stone

“Persons dealing with the government are charged with knowing government statutes and regulations, and they assume the risk that government agents may exceed their authority and provide misinformation.”

Lavin v. Marsh, 644 F.2d 1378 (9th CA, 1981)

“Whatever the form in which the government functions, anyone entering into an arrangement with the government takes the risk of having ascertained that he who purports to act for the government stays within the bounds of his authority.”

Federal Crop Ins. Corp. v. Merrill, 332 U.S. 380 (USSC, 1947)

"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error."

-United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson

Make Someone You Love Sweat Bullets This Christmas!!

...and show them how much you respect them.

I THINK WE'D ALL AGREE that sometimes the truth can be a pesky thing-- demanding, disturbing, and seriously inconvenient. The fact is, when you know the truth, you have to act on it, or be party to a lie; and when that lie is old, entrenched, vigorously defended and comfortingly familiar, the correcting truth can be very hard to learn, and even harder to act upon.

That's why one of the most challenging gifts to receive this holiday season is a copy of 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America'.

Learning the truth about the income tax means setting aside misconceptions nurtured for a lifetime. Acting on that truth means abandoning lifelong servility to the state through the offices of the IRS-- the one organization whose carefully cultivated reputation as a rabid junkyard dog is feared by everyone in America.

Both of those things are really hard!

However, those very same challenges also make 'Cracking the Code-...' the most rewarding gift to get or give this holiday season.

After all, how better could you communicate to those you love the high degree of esteem in which you hold them? How more certain of your high regard could they be made, after such a display of your faith in their character?

(Helping them stop unnecessary losses of up to 40% or more of their earnings each year goes over pretty well, too, by the way...)

So, pass out a little panic this year.

Then stand back and watch your special someone stand tall, like the real American he or she was born to be.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

A Few Observations On Current Events

I'd rather just relax and enjoy the spirit of the season, but...

 

“There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men.”

–Edmund Burke

BECAUSE THIS ONE HAS REARED its ugly head again recently-- most prominently with some plumping for it by Britain's new Prime Minister-- let me say here in the most certain terms possible: Advocacy of a "central bank digital currency" (CBDC) should be made the death knell for any political or business career. Such advocates should immediately lose any position of trust and honor, if not their place in society itself.

Indeed, advocacy for CBDC is tantamount to treason-- and I mean that very seriously.

The US Constitution is grounded in the principle of decentralization. This is expressed, for instance, in federalism, the tripart division (trivision?) of government institutional structure, the role of juries, the limitations on direct taxation, the sacred places given to freedom of speech, the people's ability to resist and overcome central government oppression and personal privacy, and the fundamental residence of ultimate power in all things and at every level in each of hundreds of millions of citizens. Diffusion of power as the American organizing principle is expressed in many specific statements to this effect by the Founders and Framers, as well.

CBDC has centralization as its primary characteristic. It is designed to remove money from individual ownership and control as a practical matter (regardless of any soothing associated rhetoric, whether in the form of statutes or otherwise) and transferring that control (and hence, real ownership, and almost unimaginable tyrannical power-- see Part III of this discussion for a quick sketch of this horror) to a central bank and those to whom it answers.

Thus, CBDC is a concept, and has a purpose, which serve to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States. Its advocates should be treated accordingly.

(Interestingly, the recent revival of advocacy for CBDC comes in the wake of digital currency trader FTX's dramatic and widely-noted collapse just after the mid-terms.

Any possible rationale linking the CBDC advocacy and the FTX collapse escapes me. But observing that coincidence gives me an excuse for also observing that discussion of the use of FTX as a money-laundering operation feeding back "aid to Ukraine" to the members of Congress responsible for its appropriation-- as explained here in general terms but with the custom feature of Ukraine first "investing" the aid money in FTX, which then distributed it to friendly lawmakers as campaign donations-- has disappeared from public discourse at the same time. It should not have.)

***

WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT of bad policies which are endangering (or actively assaulting) American liberty and the rule of law, I have to wonder how it is that no one has yet formulated a criminal case against Klaus Schwab and all his World Economic Forum co-conspirators and agents here in the USA and throughout the world. There is good reason to suspect that Schwab and company are responsible for the unprecedentedly-destructive C19 hype and the "mitigation" policies enabled by that fabricated hype, to name just one likely crime of global proportions.

Further, and in any event, the WEF cabal's declared purposes and its success at damaging the world's energy and food security are horrific enough to merit the close attention of prosecutors and other concerned and angry people around the world. The hue and cry should begin at the grass roots, at least, and should be loud and sustained until the offenses cease or are made to cease.

BTW, Dr. Robert Malone and his associates have complied a useful list of WEF agents salted throughout governments of the world. Find it here.

(Btw, II, it will be noticed that Tulsi Gabbard is on the list. There is some meaningful question as to the legitimacy of that entry-- see this and this, or Gabbard is running a deep play as an agent. I prefer to believe the former, but would definitely like her to speak on this matter at length and give us all reason to do so.)

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 under the fraudulent mantle of COVID-19 mitigation 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], since March of 2020 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.

Read this little two-page document. Click on the links at the end.

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 like that.

Use this evidence in all your outreach efforts.

Regarding Trolleries

(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 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.

How To Be A Leader In The CtC Community

It's simple:

KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TAX IN DETAIL

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE RESOURCES

BE FAMILIAR WITH THE SCAMS, THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS, AND THE TROLL-POLLUTION

TAKE CHARGE IN YOUR STATE FORUM, HELPING EVERYONE TO THINK CLEARLY AND STAY ON TOPIC

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 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...

The Liberating Truth About The 16th Amendment

IF YOU'RE NOT SPREADING THIS LINK with every bit of energy you can, to school libraries, homeschool families and community groups, your neighbors, your family members, your pastors and co-congregationalists, journalists, lawyers, CPAs, members of congress, tax-agency workers, Wikipedia, Anonymous, WikiLeaks, the Tax Foundation, everyone in the "tax honesty" movement, the 9/11 truth movement, other activist movements and everyone else, you have only yourself to blame for your troubles with the tax, and a whole lot else of which you might complain. It's on you.

WRITE A NICE, FRIENDLY AND BRIEF introductory note explaining what will be seen at the link-- cryptic is bad; excited is good-- and then send this WMI (weapon of mass instruction) far and wide.

Remember: Real Americans don't accommodate fog, lies and a sliding scale of adherence to the rule of law. Real American men and women stand up for the truth and the law, come what may, knowing that it is only by setting the bar at the top and enforcing it, come what may, that liberties are secured.

The Road To Totalitarianism (Revisited)

by CJ Hopkins

It feels like it’s finally over, doesn’t it, the whole “apocalyptic pandemic” thing? I mean, really, really over this time. Not like all those other times when you thought it was over, but it wasn’t over, and was like the end of those Alien movies, where it seems like Ripley has finally escaped, but the alien is hiding out in the shuttle, or the escape pod, or Ripley’s intestinal tract.

But this time doesn’t feel like that. This time it feels like it’s really, really over. Go out and take a look around. Hardly anyone is wearing masks anymore (except where masks are mandatory) or being coerced into submitting to “vaccinations” (except where “vaccination” is mandatory), and the hordes of hate-drunk New Normal fanatics who demanded that “the Unvaccinated” be segregated, censored, fired from their jobs, and otherwise demonized and persecuted, have all fallen silent (except for those who haven’t).

Everything is back to normal, right?

Wrong. Everything is not back to normal. Everything is absolutely New Normal. What is over is the “shock-and-awe” phase, which was never meant to go on forever. It was always only meant to get us here.

Where, you’re probably asking, is “here”? “Here” is a place where the new official ideology has been firmly established as our new “reality,” woven into the fabric of normal everyday life. No, not everywhere, just everywhere that matters. (Do you really think the global-capitalist ruling classes care what people in Lakeland, Florida, Elk River, Idaho, or some village in Sicily believe about “reality”?) Yes, most government restrictions have been lifted, mainly because they are no longer necessary, but in centers of power throughout the West, in political, corporate, and cultural spheres, in academia, the mainstream media, and so on, the New Normal has become “reality,” or, in other words, “just the way it is,” which is the ultimate goal of every ideology.

For example, I just happened upon this “important COVID-19 information,” which you need to be aware of (and strictly adhere to) if you want to attend a performance at this Off-Broadway theater in New York City, where “everything is back to normal.”

I could pull up countless further examples, but I don’t want to waste your time. At this point, it isn’t the mask and “vaccination” mandates themselves that are important. They are simply the symbols and rituals of the new official ideology, an ideology that has divided societies into two irreconcilable categories of people: (1) those who are prepared to conform their beliefs to the official narrative of the day, no matter how blatantly ridiculous it is, and otherwise click heels and follow the orders of the global-capitalist ruling establishment, no matter how destructive and fascistic they may be; and (2) those who are not prepared to do that.

Let’s go ahead and call them “Normals” and “Deviants.” I think you know which one you are.

Afterword

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

-Voltaire

HOPKINS STRUGGLES TO KEEP his wry wit alive in this piece, because the picture he paints is too dark for even the driest of humor. Unfortunately, his artistic instinct has the right of it. Things ARE pretty dark on the "new normal" front.

Indeed, the relentlessness of the transformational effort is so heavy and sustained that it is becoming unnoticeable-- like the sound of a nearby train rolling past your home so regularly that after a week or two of exposure you no longer even notice it. But still, it rumbles by, over and over.

I have observed many times on these pages that corruption, like rust, never sleeps, and therefore, neither can we. Accompanying that observation is this: Corruption is able to never sleep, and instead assaults us all relentlessly, because it has access to massive resources allowing it to finance full-time assailants and trolls and propagandists. This is true, in turn, because too few Americans know their power over the resources available to those bad actors.

The ugly fact is, we are not just the victims of these malefactors. We are their enablers, as well-- if we have not stood up and taken control of how much of our wealth facilitates their offices and their actions.

Happily we CAN stand up and take control. We can boycott private sector trolls and propagandists. We can also defund the state from which the rot most often spreads, using a Founder-provided means for imposing a much-needed corrective on those who do bad things in our names and with our resources.

One simple act by each individual American will do the trick, and it needs no approval or agreement from any institutional authority. That one simple thing will function as a catalyst, compelling the beneficial reorganization of our whole societal and political structure as a natural and inevitable process.

You can see a learn all about this solution in this little two-page paper. Read it, think about it, share it.

A Little Extra

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..."

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 (sixteenth) edition of CtC!

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 and suppressing the truth for years on end, and everybody knows THAT would never happen...

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 wanted to 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...

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.
