"There are two distinct classes of men...those who pay taxes and those who receive and live upon taxes."

-Thomas Paine

 

You can't understand the present if you don't understand the past...

Illuminating anniversaries of this week:

September 18- In 2001, the first post-9/11 "anthrax letters" are mailed to ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, the New York Post and the National Enquirer, successfully keeping the "terrorism"-hysteria pot boiling.  A second set of anthrax-laden letters were mailed to a pair of influential United States Senators three weeks later during Senate "consideration" of the draconian 'USA PATRIOT Act'.  Click here for more on this subject.  In 2014, 44.7% of Scots voted to secede from the United Kingdom.  In 2019, Edward Snowden's book, 'Permanent Record' becomes the world's best-selling book (at the time), one day after the United States launches a lawsuit against its publisher for failing to allow the CIA and NSA to redact from the manuscript things they wish kept from the light of day (and the eyes of their owners, the American people).

 

Anniversaries of interest for each day of this week will be found throughout the newsletter below.

 

NOTE: I don't even try to include in these anniversary compilations items involved in the "COVID-19" scam, hysteria and exploitation. There would be way too much to say about all that to suit this format. But find my summary of that history, and related observations posted throughout 2020 and 2021, here.

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.

A Word To Its Critics From Western Civilization

...and the Northern Mediterranean, European and Scandinavian people and culture by which it was produced and has been maintained.

Ever watch your kid dehydrate and die from cholera? You're welcome.

Ever need to wear glasses or other corrective lens to see properly? You're welcome.

Ever notice that even if comparatively poor in a Western Civilization-(classical liberal)-grounded community your basic material well-being is equal to or better than that of a comparatively wealthy person in a non-Western Civilization-grounded community? You're welcome.

Ever reflect on how beneficial it is to be able to fly (or drive, or ride a train) across the country? Or to have that cellphone that goes everywhere with you, or to be able to see important events happening in real-time no matter where you are? You're welcome.

Ever appreciate your freedom to say what you wish-- even including expressions of strident dissent against government positions or policies-- without fear of suppression or reprisal? You're welcome.

Etc., etc..

...and now a word to the friends of Western Civ:

ONE OF THE MOST DISTURBING THINGS about the prolonged, vicious and mendacious assault on the culture that produced the prosperity, technological advancement and social structure by which that assault is made possible (that is, mass communication of any view, legally, socially and economically possible for any voice) is the lack of any pushback. It seems that the minds of westerners have been so poisoned against the virtues of their staggering accomplishments and contributions that they are made timid and dumb in the face of criticism, however ignorance-based, absurd and destructive it might be.

This mustn't continue.

Even while acknowledging that it has rough edges in some places, and is sometimes exploited in its generous liberalism by some bad actors, the inheritors and advocates of Western Civ need to stand up, loud and proud, in a stern remonstrance and denunciation of its "critics" and competitors. The only alternatives on offer from those critics are some form of variously-structured despotism (i.e., socialism or fascism) or simple nihilism-- the rough edges and exploitation of which are sustained monstrosities in comparison to which those of Western Civ are dwarfed into insignificance.

This is, in fact, an existential threat situation which those who cherish freedom and the rule of law sideline themselves from at the peril of their lives and those of their children.

A good model to study is the Cultural Revolution in China. The reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and Nazis in Germany also offer good examples.

I watch the paralysis of the American majority as "BLM" and "Antifa" brownshirts riot in our cities and shout down or veto conservative voices by threats of violence (as shown and discussed here, for instance) and I worry for the future. I watch the paralysis of the American majority in the face of the systematic destruction of our Western Civ heritage-- and the history by which it can be understood-- through bogus historical revisionism in our classrooms and in our social discourse (such as is discussed here and here, for instance), and even in the tearing down of our historical monuments, and I worry for the future.

I watch the fundamental liberty and meritocratic principles of Western Civ attacked with quotas and "diversity, equity and inclusion" policies, private and public, and I worry for our future. I watch the subversion of our Constitutionally-specified political and legal processes (see this and this, for instance) and I worry for the future.

You should be worried, too.

And pissed.

And upstanding.

A "Trans"-Related Legislative Model

...for virtuous lawmakers across the country; along with a few more readily deployable culture-war cudgels.

ANYONE WHO instills, cultivates, affirms or in any way encourages any notion in the mind of a child which causes that child to seek or consent to chemical or surgical alteration of his or her body in any kind of effort to thwart, overcome, reject, conceal or disable the natural development and manifestation of characteristics common to persons of the child's biological sex, or anyone who imposes upon a child any chemical or surgical alteration of his or her body for any such purpose, is guilty of felony child abuse.

ANYONE WHO encourages any child to adopt dress, deportment, or mannerisms inconsistent with predominant cultural norms for a child of his or her biological sex is guilty of misdemeanor child abuse.

Upon conviction... [each state legislature will need to fill in this portion in a manner consistent with its existing criminal structure].

Now, a few words about our schools...

MANY NOT BLESSED with my now 68-year-old memory will be unaware that back in the day, every school-- public or private-- had a dress code. Typical would be that boys and young men were required to arrive in clean shoes, slacks and shirt (short- or long-sleeved, depending upon the time of year) evincing respect for the school, staff and fellow students (meaning the sort of attire in which a child would be dressed to attend church, for instance). Girls and young women were required to wear shoes, skirts and blouses of similar character.

In many cases the colors of shirts/blouses and slacks/skirts were specified explicitly, or in a more relaxed school, specified only as "dark" solid color slacks/skirts and "light" solid color shirts/blouses. No bright colors.

Hair was expected to be clean, and neatly combed or brushed.

At the same time, and in the same vein of establishing a focused and productive atmosphere free of distractions and respectful of the schools important educational mission, anything not essential to that mission (which today would include cellphones), was prohibited.

Needless to say, these requirements were imposed all-the-more sternly on faculty and staff, and also included sport coats (and often neckties) for men, and comparable business-level features for the women. No tats, no piercings, no attention-seeking eyeglass frames, no cross-dressing, and no rainbow hair.

I encourage everyone to let all that percolate for a few moments until the fundamental difference between schools so comported and those of today becomes clear. I am confident that such contemplation will yield widening eyes and dawning excitement at the idea and promise of re-imposing such standards.

AT THE SAME TIME SCHOOL DRESS CODES RE-APPEAR, we can, as a society, finally implement another major reform which has often been spoken-of but has so far been left on the cutting-room floor, and which is certain to dramatically improve educational institutions. I speak of cameras in the classroom.

The shutting of schoolhouse doors during the Covid lunacy in 2020 and 2021 and the resort instead to "distance learning" opened a window to parents on just what has been delivered to their children under the label of education. Many such parents were awakened into righteous engagement in their kids schools, and that is great, and has resulted in much good being done or at least begun.

But as the schools re-opened and the children again disappeared within them, all became opaque once more. This should not be tolerated. Therefore now, while an understanding of the problem is fresh in the minds of all those parents, the transparency should be restored and made permanent by putting a camera in the back of every classroom, accessible at any time by any parent of a child in that class.

The benefits of parental oversight in keeping schools and teachers on-mission and in pursuit of excellence are so obvious as to need no articulation here. And no argument against is credible. After all, day-care centers and even dog-sitting facilities routinely offer the feature these days.

All that needs to be further said is that any state in which the existing political climate allows should enact this legislation immediately, taking no chances with the possibility of a future, adverse change in control of the legislature or administration.

It is in the schools that the enemies of Western Civilization have created their nihilist, Brave New World armies. Any simple measures that can be taken to thwart the progress of that project should be seized upon and bolted into place immediately and at every opportunity.

Finally, a few words on the matter of January 6, 2021:

ONE THING THAT HAS PARTICULARLY surprised and disturbed me in regard to the "January 6" response is the apparently stubborn obtuseness of judges involved in the proceedings related to the protest/riot at the Capitol. Plainly what took place that day was by no stretch of a rational imagination an "insurrection", either in fact or in intention.

Rather, a bunch of people were reasonably incensed at what was easily seen by anyone who cared to look as a totally rigged election, and a monolithic media suppression of that subject, and infuriating repetition of middle-school-level nonsense assertions of "there is no evidence" and so forth. These irate Americans went to the capitol to rally in support of some lawmakers intent on presenting evidence of the rigging.

The peaceful rally was then engineered into a melee-- which could be (and since, has been) endlessly used to demonize all challenges to the legitimacy of the declared outcome of the election-- by means and persons as yet undetermined (due to persistent mendacity and stonewalling by people like Christopher Wray) but which plainly involved government (read: deep state) agents-provocateur (click here and watch the excellent documentary you'll find there).

On the other hand, the rigging of the election which was being protested on January 6 plainly WAS an insurrection, by any fair reading of the term.

Are these January 6 defendants who are uniformly mistreated and over-sentenced by DC judges being kept from pointing all of this out? Or are these judges co-opted, either through corruption or intimidation?

The question brings matters discussed here disturbingly to mind, and highlights many important points made here.

"Like a muddied stream or a polluted fountain is the righteous man who gives way before the wicked."

-Proverbs 25:26

 

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."

-Everett Hale

 

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. 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 resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

-Frederick Douglass

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...

...an important action item opportunity.

FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC EASINGS of the despotic measures to which most of the country has been subjected under since the onset of the COVID-19 hobgoblin narrative 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.

"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."

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...

How To Start The Final World War

by L. Reichard White

The bureaucrats in charge after WWII, fearing a return to the banker/government-caused Great Depression, made a fatal decision. Since it had apparently finally gotten the U.S. out of that disaster, enshrined in National Security Council Report 68 (NSC-68), signed by president Harry S Truman on September 30, 1950, they decided to continue using the manufacture of military materials to pump the economy.

Ten years later, President and Five-star General Dwight Eisenhower caught a glimpse of the result and warned us like this – – –

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial-congressional complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.” –Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address 1961, Public Papers of the Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1960, p. 1035- 1040

Called “Military Keynesianism,” political scientist and ex-CIA consultant Chalmers Johnson was among those who solidly nailed the long-term dangers and consequences of using war production to stimulate the economy.

It was clear that the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) required an enemy, a dastardly villain, as an excuse. They managed to create North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and a few lesser excuses into that needed commodity but these all eventually fell short and fizzled out.

You can find a list of seven potential replacements HERE.

And how about that old stand-by, the Soviet Union? But it had broken up. On the other hand, public opinion polls showed that most Americans hadn’t separated modern Russia from that intimidating image of the old Soviet Union as our evil enemy. All those decades of propaganda were still in place, especially in the minds of us Baby Boomers. Especially Hollywood propaganda. You know, James Bond and all.

So, a ready-made villain on the cheap!

The Main-Stream Media (MSM) had completely failed to notice that the Russians had learned the hard way that socialism/communism “promised workers paradise but delivered the other place instead.” They’d also learned — the hard way — that voluntary market exchange kicks booty.

So, under the guidance of Vladmir Putin and his cronies, they’d been promoting trade with other folks in other countries, including selling massive amounts of natural gas to Europe through their twin billion-dollar under-sea pipelines, Nord Stream I and soon, II. They’d been promoting Sochi as a resort town and host to major international events. Etc.

The Russians were making money hand over fist and loving it. And Putin was regularly referring to “Our friends and partners in the West.” Meaning us.

But That Thing That Lives in Washington D.C. and its minions (the U.K. for example) needed that Essential Villain and guess who they chose?

The C.I.A. has a lot of experience assassinating folks, overturning governments, fomenting violence and revolution, that sort of thing. President Harry S. Truman, who created the C.I.A., described things this way – – –

“Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don’t just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there’s nobody to keep track of what they’re up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble so they’ll have something to report on. They’ve become … it’s become a government all of its own and all secret. They don’t have to account to anybody.” –Pres. Harry S. Truman

And so they got to work, first by refurbishing the narrative.

Exactly what you’d expect since, exposed by the Sen. Frank Church Committee, most savvy folks know that Western Main Stream Media (MSM) is a fully owned and integrated subsidiary of the C.I.A.

By this time I was finally beginning to get it. SOMEBODY was setting up Putin and the Russians for SOMETHING.

“SOMEBODY” was likely the CIA and I started looking for signs.

A big one was the 2014 CIA-engineered Ukrainian Maidan coup, spearheaded by U.S. operative Victoria Nuland and abetted by Hilary Clinton. It ousted Russia-friendly Viktor Yanukovych in favor of several U.S. puppets, ending up with former comedian Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The CIA also planned to get Ukraine into NATO.

I started listening to Putin’s speechs whenever I could. I heard things like this (notice the date) – – –

– “We must get back to the international law instead of might makes right. … U.S. approach, one step forward, one step back gets nowhere. …There has to be a dialog, I don’t think there is any other way.” –Vladimir Putin Thursday, April 25, 2019 5:25 AM, media event during Kim Jon Un/Putin summit in Vladivistok

It gradually became clear that Putin and the Russians were as paranoid of NATO as we Baby Boomers had been of the old Soviet Union.

Afterword

How to STOP the final World War.

REICHARD WHITE DOES A GREAT JOB summarizing and tying together the deep background and milieu behind the current hobgoblin project in Ukraine and the overall interlinked hobgoblinism of DC Blob foreign and domestic policy. His ultimate point is just as well taken: To let this Leviathan security state insanity continue is suicidal.

Frankly, the really surprising thing is that the rest of the world hasn't already awakened to the peril and recognized the need to act against the Blob. That awakening is going on to a degree, as is shown by the turn of more and more nations from reliance on US-controlled international institutions like the IMF, World Bank, SWIFT system and the US dollar to Russian and Chinese alternatives like the BRICS group, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and trade in independent national currencies, soon to coalesce into the use of a common, gold-backed international currency. Something on the order of 40% of world GDP and more than 40% of the world population is now participating in these alternatives.

What hasn't happened yet (as far as we know) are actual hostile acts from these breakaway countries intended to degrade Washington's ability to keep stirring the pot of death and destruction on behalf of Military Industrial Congressional Complex interests. With that pot-stirring unchecked, expect such hostile acts eventually. The nuclear exchange into which the Blob's lunacy is taking us will not be just an American suicide. It will also be the murder of everyone else. Soon, everyone else will begin acting in self-defense and American quality of life (for average Americans) will get much worse than it will be even when we shortly begin suffering the collapse of the dollar.

THERE IS, HOWEVER, A NARROW WINDOW within which this otherwise certain adverse turn of events can be avoided, by rapid and resolute action of individual Americans, if enough can be enlisted into the campaign. The Founding Fathers, who recognized that all forms of government inevitably tend toward the centralization of power and the metastasizing of corruption, with even the Constitutional republic they designed being no exception, wisely provided the solution.

Individual action making use of the structure and limitations of the federal taxing power hard-wired into the Constitution, by means of which the Leviathan security state now threatening the survival of humanity itself can be defunded and shrunk back down to tolerable proportions, is that provided and relied upon solution. Through embrace of this solution, each American can not only cease his or her enabling of the dangerous, lunatic Leviathan state, but also present an irresistible lure to others, even those who know or care nothing about the perils of the rogue state and its operators, but who don't want to relinquish to anyone wealth with which they legally need not be parting.

That is, individual self-interest-- the most powerful political force in the universe-- is inexorably invoked by the liberating truth about the income tax, and that invocation will yield the beneficial outcome.

All that is needed to make it all happen is for a big enough core group of consciousness-raised Americans to act and be vocal.

YOU can help make that happen.

Share this link to the newly online and free edition of CtC with everyone you can.

If you have access to any pundits, share this link.

Further, independent commentaries, comments to these newsletter articles, and especially videos should be flying out from this community all the time! Remember, people, those defending the evil status quo are legion, and relentless. Those wanting them defeated, and their evil scheme and its evil progeny wiped away, need to be just as much so.

At a minimum, everyone in this community should be diligently sharing, with suitable exhortations and persuasions to the recipient, the special materials I have written for this purpose. For instance, clicking on the image of Dorothy and Glinda, below, will yield a short .pdf by which anyone not welded to a government teat will quickly be inspired and equipped to lend their strength to climbing out of our suicidal dive, if shared around with at least a subject line encouraging its perusal.

Others can be found here and here and here.

Seriously, people. It's time to stop whistling past the graveyard and to start curing the cancer, instead.

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..."

Lawyers: It's Way Past Time For You All To Queue Up!

[Y]ou really need to familiarize yourself with Pete Hendrickson's absolutely magnificent work at his website and in his book(s). He has, brilliantly and lucidly, "cracked the code" regarding the federal income EXCISE tax(es)."

-Mark C. Phillips, JD

 

"...I find your work fascinatingly simple to understand."

-Jerry Arnowitz, JD

 

"Your book is a masterpiece!"

-Michael Carver, JD

 

"Received your book yesterday. Started reading at 11 PM, finished at 4 AM." "I have 16 feet (literally 16' 4.5") of documents supporting just about everything in your book." "Your book should be required reading for every lawyer before being admitted to any Bar." "I hope you sell a million of them."

-John O'Neil Green, JD

 

�Thanks again for your efforts, Pete. They mean an awful lot to a lot of people.� ��as an attorney, I am humbled by your knowledge and ability in navigating the law. THANK YOU for your hard work and sacrifice.�

-Eric Smithers, JD

 

"I am an attorney and want to give a testimonial to your book, which I find to be compelling. I am exercising these rights for myself and my adult children. I'm even considering making this my new avenue of law practice."

-Nancy "Ana" Garner, JD

Learn what these colleagues already know, then step forward and become part of a coordinated, mutually-supportive squadron focused on developing strategy and deploying the law in courtrooms across the country. There's a lot of suing that needs doing right now.

Are you ready for a challenge that'll put some real meaning behind all the effort you went through to get your credentials? Send me an email.

Are You Ready For More Power?

"Peter Hendrickson has done it again! 'Upholding The Law' does for individual liberties what 'Cracking the Code' did for tax law compliance: exposes the reader to the unalienable truth!"

-Jesse Herron, Bill Of Rights Press, Fort Collins, Colorado

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...

(Edward Snowden, come home! It was all just a bad dream; there really is No Such Agency!)

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...

Illuminating Anniversaries of this week:

September 24- In 1869, "Black Friday" occurred-- a collapse of gold prices back to normal, after having been temporarily bid up 30% or so by speculators who had been buying the metal up in the (mistaken) belief that the federal government intended to redeem "greenbacks" (fiat money issued by the Lincoln administration during the War Between the States) with real money.  In 1979, CompuServe introduces "e-mail".  In 2014, India successfully inserts an exploratory spacecraft into orbit around Mars.

Last Word

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

-Samuel Adams, Architect of the first American Revolution

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.
