Here are old trees, tall oaks and gnarled
That stream with gray-green mosses; here the
Was never trenched by spade, and flowers spring
Unsown, and die ungathered. It is sweet
To linger here, among the flitting birds
And leaping squirrels, wandering brooks, and
That shake the leaves, and scatter, as they
A fragrance from the cedars, thickly set
With pale blue berries. In these peaceful
Peaceful, unpruned, immeasurably old--
My thoughts go up the long dim path of years,
Back to the earliest days of liberty.
O Freedom! thou art not, as poets
A fair young girl, with light and delicate
And wavy tresses gushing from the cap
With which the Roman master crowned his slave
When he took off the gyves. A bearded man,
Armed to the teeth, art thou; one mailed hand
Grasps the broad shield, and one the sword; thy
Glorious in beauty though it be, is scarred
With tokens of old wars; thy massive limbs
Are strong with struggling. Power at thee has
His bolts, and with his lightnings smitten
They could not quench the life thou hast from
Merciless power has dug thy dungeon deep,
And his swart armorers, by a thousand fires,
Have forged thy chain; yet, while he deems thee
The links are shivered, and the prison walls
Fall outward; terribly thou springest forth,
As springs the flame above a burning pile,
And shoutest to the nations, who return
Thy shoutings, while the pale oppressor flies.
Thy birthright was not given by
Thou wert twin-born with man. In pleasant
While yet our race was few, thou sat'st with
To tend the quiet flock and watch the stars,
And teach the reed to utter simple airs.
Thou by his side, amid the tangled wood,
Didst war upon the panther and the wolf,
His only foes; and thou with him didst draw
The earliest furrows on the mountain side,
Soft with the deluge. Tyranny himself,
The enemy, although of reverend look,
Hoary with many years, and far obeyed,
Is later born than thou; and as he meets
The grave defiance of thine elder eye,
The usurper trembles in his fastnesses.
Thou shalt wax stronger with the
lapse of years,
But he shall fade into a feebler age;
Feebler, yet subtler; he shall weave his
And spring them on thy careless steps, and clap
His withered hands, and from their ambush call
His hordes to fall upon thee. He shall send
Quaint maskers, wearing fair and gallant forms,
To catch thy gaze, and uttering graceful words
To charm thy ear; while his sly imps, by
Twine round thee threads of steel, light thread
That grow to fetters; or bind down thy arms
With chains concealed in chaplets. Oh! not yet
Mayst thou unbrace thy corslet, nor lay by
Thy sword; nor yet, O Freedom! close thy lids
In slumber; for thine enemy never sleeps.
And thou must watch and combat till the day
Of the new earth and heaven. But wouldst thou
Awhile from tumult and the frauds of men,
These old and friendly solitudes invite
Thy visit. They, while yet the forest trees
Were young upon the unviolated earth,
And yet the moss-stains on the rock were new,
Beheld thy glorious childhood, and rejoiced.
This wonderful poem was written, as near as I can
determine, in 1814. Bryant would have been 20 years old at that point.
He will have seen, during his young life, the unfolding of the precious
liberties won by the blood, sweat and tears of his father's generation
which we have seen wither away during our lifetimes.
We should listen to the wisdom of this young man and be
shamed, but also inspired into redemptive action.

Some Sober Observations-- Dark And Light-- To
Consider As We Go Forward
Many victims of the pandemic scam have already succumbed;
many more will soon follow. This is tragic, but puts into sharp relief
the nature of the challenge which lies before the rest of us, if we have
the courage to be open to harsh truths.
SO, TO BEGIN WITH,
deaths from all different
causes were falsely ascribed to C19. This was done in order to whip
up panic and hysteria and create an atmosphere in which a so-called
"vaccine"-- which is actually a genetic modifier which does NOT prevent
infection with the virus, nor transmission of same, nor sickness or
death after infection if the conditions under which any infected person
might become severely ill or dead, "vaccinated" or not (such as obesity,
COPD, etc.)-- would be readily-- even gratefully-- received.
Now, with the "vaccine" widely deployed throughout the
Western world, and repeat injections having been successfully made into
many arms, deaths from that agent are climbing in number rapidly. In a
twist that probably brings smirks to certain faces, those deaths are
being ascribed by the perps to every other possible cause in a neat
contortion of the narrative in order to keep the program alive until the last possible naif has
The "vaccines" are causing heart attacks, strokes,
pneumonia, neurological failures and more, all of which are being
brushed out of the picture presented to the public as just the normal
run and pace of mortalities. The chutzpah is remarkable, but the data
tell the tale to those able to see it.
Here is a chart representing data published by the UK
Office of National Statistics comparing deaths from all causes, per
100,000 persons, among "vaccinated" individuals and those who had not
had the injections, aged 10 to 59, from 3 January to 24 September, 2021:
(Efforts to rebut the significance of these data have been
based on the fallacious assertion of something called 'Simpson's
Paradox'. The argument is that because "vaccination" is more prevalent
among those over 40, and general mortality is higher in that same age
group, the stats are skewed and misleading.
However, the totality of the relevant facts belies this
proposition of skewed data and misleading outcomes.
Really, though, the direct-comparison starting date is even
earlier. After all, just as is argued in the inaptly-referenced
"paradox", far more older people die than do younger people. That is
just as true in the unvaccinated cohorts as in those who are
Thus, the actual direct-comparison starting date is June
18, when 18-year-olds were approved for "vaccination". And like it or
not, that comparison plainly shows twice as many of the "vaccinated"
dying as the unvaccinated, whether primarily from among the
40-59-year-old portions of each cohort or otherwise.)
SUPPLEMENTING THE EVIDENCE of excessive death rates among
the "vaccinated" shown above, see
this drill-down specifically on C19 deaths among the "vaccinated"
in England compared to those among the unvaccinated, from the beginning of February, 2021
to the 12th of September.
Plainly, being "vaccinated" raises the likelihood of death
from both C19 and many other causes, as well. Indeed, this has long been predicted by every competent
medical professional. Dr. Vernon Coleman has been prominent among those
issuing these warnings, and he offers a new and even more
forcefully-supported warning in the short video
here (also see
this related page).
Frankly, the increased likelihood of death after
injection with mRNA "vaccines" hasn't required professional medical
credentials to observe. The mere fact of that genetic modifier
contrivance being deployed instead of real vaccines, created with dead or weakened
virus.-- is enough to shoot up the antennae of
any rational person.
After all, if providing protection against a virus is
actually the goal, banging out a vaccine created in the tried-and-true
fashion of all prior vaccines is the obvious course of action. To have
done otherwise, and produced and relentlessly flogged an mRNA manipulation instead--
with a proven track record of deadly effects from the get-go (the specifics of which
directly correlate to the prevalence of C19 deaths among the
"vaccinated" shown in the UK stats linked above), and one
which does NOT
immunize against C19-- unmistakably indicates that the goal is otherwise.
The manner in which the very low-threat C19 virus was
studiously made into a panic-inducing, rational-thought-destroying
hobgoblin (as discussed
here in great depth), complete with a deliberate corruption of the
medical community in the US (and doubtless elsewhere) toward this end,
as shown in the 'Other Voices' entry
further down this page, says the same.
The deeply-dark, difficult to say and difficult to hear
bottom line is this: The C19 "vaccines" are meant to kill people--
perhaps in service to a "green" agenda or perhaps in service to a simply
selfish agenda of removing "useless eaters" and expensive social
services beneficiaries. No other explanation reasonably fits the facts.
NOW, LET'S SHIFT GEARS and consider the "light" point
available to us. The whole of the threats facing the American people as
outlined above are rooted in the federal Leviathan state. Without that
8,000 lb. gorilla supporting the panic-mongers and co-opting and
coercing state governments into doing the same, voices like Tony Fauci's
would screech from far less bully pulpits, and those of real doctors and
scientists would be at least as loud in the public square.
Without that 8,000 lb. gorilla, no one would be buying
millions of doses of Pfizer mRNA injections, or co-opting hospitals into
"treating" patients with ineffective drugs, or misclassifying illnesses.
No one would be successfully suppressing or overshadowing actual
treatments where actual disease existed. And so on, and so forth.
Solving this problem is within our power.
That solution is the liberating truth about the "income"
tax-- and the corresponding illumination of the truly limited scope of
the federal government-- which are presented in

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.

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue

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.

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...

Biden's Bounty On Your Life: Hospitals'
Incentive Payments For COVID-19
by Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. and Ali Shultz, J.D.
Upon admission to a once-trusted hospital, American
patients with COVID-19 become virtual prisoners, subjected to a
rigid treatment protocol with roots in Ezekiel Emanuel’s “Complete Lives
System” for rationing medical care in those over age 50. They have a shockingly
high mortality rate. How and why is this happening, and what can be done about
exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted
meeting several times a week to lower standards of care, with
coordinated restrictions on visitation rights. Most COVID-19 patients’
families are deliberately kept in the dark about what is really being
done to their loved ones.
The combination that enables this tragic and
avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes (1) The
CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments
for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to
hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths,
and vaccinations) and (2)
waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
In 2020, the
Association submitted requests for waivers to CMS. According to
Texas attorney Jerri Ward, “CMS has granted ‘waivers’ of federal law
regarding patient rights. Specifically, CMS purports to allow hospitals
to violate the rights of patients or their surrogates with regard to
medical record access, to have patient visitation, and to be free from
seclusion.” She notes that “rights do not come from the hospital or CMS
and cannot be waived, as that is the antithesis of a ‘right.’ The
purported waivers are meant to isolate and gain total control over the
patient and to deny patient and patient’s decision-maker the ability to
exercise informed consent.”
Creating a “National Pandemic Emergency”
provided justification for such sweeping actions that override
individual physician medical decision-making and patients’ rights. The
CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated
solely by the federal government under the auspices of the NIH. These
“bounties” must paid back if not “earned” by making the COVID-19
diagnosis and following the COVID-19 protocol.
The hospital payments include:
A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency
Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee
Added bonus payment for each positive
Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to
A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from
Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead
of medicines such as Ivermectin.
Another and larger bonus payment to the
hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
More money to the hospital if cause of
death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of
A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra
payments to coroners.
CMS implemented “value-based” payment programs
that track data such as how many workers at a healthcare facility
receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Now we see why many hospitals implemented
COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They are paid more.
Outside hospitals, physician MIPS quality
metrics link doctors’ income to performance-based pay for treating
patients with COVID-19 EUA drugs. Failure to report information to CMS
can cost the physician 4% of reimbursement.
Because of obfuscation with medical coding and
legal jargon, we cannot be certain of the actual amount each hospital
receives per COVID-19 patient. But Attorney Thomas Renz and CMS
whistleblowers have calculated a total payment of at least $100,000 per
What does this mean for your health and safety
as a patient in the hospital?
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
LET ME FIRST POINT OUT, IN FAIRNESS to the Brandon
administration, that many of these incentives (if not all of them)
actually began in the spring of 2020 during Donald Trump's presidency
(as implied in the text, but contradicted by the title of the article).
Still, Brandon has continued them, with enthusiasm, and certainly owns
Blame properly distributed, the more important observation
about the story in Vliet and Shultz's exposé is just how
pernicious and subversive are the practices detailed, and how starkly
their recital underscores the likelihood that the "C19 crisis" has
always been a proper subject of deep suspicion as to its legitimacy, at
best, if not an outright deliberate contrivance.
For the record, I take the latter view as the truth of the
matter, as expressed most thoroughly
NOW, ADD WHAT VLIET AND SHULTZ have shared with us to the
content and supporting docs in the related
article above in this newsletter, and I think we can all agree that
allowing this "dire pandemic" scam to continue to play out would be
foolish in the extreme as well as a betrayal of our personal integrity.
As grown men and women, and especially as Americans with a heritage of
placing adherence to virtuous principles as the highest civic duty, we
must crush this ruinous and evil lie.
As we now know, beyond doubt or denial, the perpetuation of
the fraud is deliberate and everyone playing along is either deluded
(and must be shaken awake or pushed out of the way) or is complicit and
culpable and must be denounced and opposed accordingly.
Further, at risk (as always) of tediously repeating myself,
the optimal (and only real) solution to the the REAL dire straits in
which we find ourselves is to shrink the Leviathan state that has been
used to create the threat against us all in the first place. That is,
Americans who treasure their heritage need to
face the uncomfortable fact that only the dramatic diminishment of the
power and footprint of government-- the chief tool of subjugation used
by those with designs upon the rest of us-- can avail us now. Nothing
else will do.
Unfortunately, while remediation efforts undertaken in the
political arena and in the courts are virtuous, and merit our
enthusiastic support and participation... they will fail. All such
efforts will look to the existing political and legal structure for
their implementation. In the current climate, in which the established
structures are so heavily compromised and corrupted, such reliance is
more a naive hope than a certainty.
Our efforts must focus on striking at the taproot of the
HAPPILY, THE FOUNDERS AND FRAMERS prepared against this precise
need, knowing that all governments inevitably lurch toward the accretion
of power unto themselves and the corruption which accompanies all
accretions of state power. They put into place a solution ready to the
hand of individual Americans, entirely bypassing all supervision or
approval of the state.
The only requirements to implement that solution are eyes
with which to see the problem, reasoning with which to recognize the
truth and rightness of the solution, and courage, confidence and clarity
of mind enough to pull the trigger in the face of the natural and
predictable effort of the targeted rogue state to discourage doing so.
