Resources For Navigating The Current Contrived Chaos

A few worthwhile offerings by folks whose eyes are still open on the "C19 is a monster" nonsense, the Julian Assange assault, and the Navalny "poisoning"; along with comments regarding a ruling last week on the Constitutionality of Pennsylvania's "lockdown", my day-dream TV show, and the proper replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

FOR MONTHS I'VE BEEN PRESENTING data and analysis debunking the "C19 is a monster" narrative using primarily American numbers. Kit Knightly of 'OffGuardian' has now posted a nice analysis to the same effect using this data from the UK's Office of National Statistics:

Knightly goes on to make the great point that since flu deaths continue to track at their average annual rate, it is clear that "social distancing", "stay at home", masks and other "lockdown" measures are accomplishing nothing. As he points out, the flu is a virus, too, and it's plainly not being hindered by all the obnoxious and ruinous despotic impositions.

See the whole article here, and then lose the mask, re-open your business to full capacity, and launch your lawsuits against everyone responsible for all the harm you've suffered from the hoax this year.

***

ALSO FROM ACROSS THE POND, David Cullen has cranked out a concise and compelling video presentation debunking the "C19 is a monster" nonsense using numbers from Ireland:

H/T to Greg Sutton for passing this one along.

BTW, I am not endorsing Cullen's notions as to the agenda behind the C19 hoax. I am also not dismissing it as impossible, but I DO dismiss it as irrelevant.

The idea that this is all an 'Agenda 21' implementation will definitely push some folks' buttons. But that shouldn't be needed in order get anyone up in arms. The frauds involved in the hoax, and the assault it is directing at the rule of law are sufficient unto themselves as reasons to oppose it strenuously.

Hence, the first half of Cullen's film, in which the fraudulence of characterizing C19 as some extraordinarily-dire threat is presented, is the important half. All our efforts should be devoted to debunking the "199,207 deaths from C19" lie (as the current MSM has it) and the idiot argument that discovering more instances of past or present infections with this insignificant virus is meaningful or a proper justification for dispossessing Americans of their rights and destroying their prosperity.

AFTER ALL, LET'S REMEMBER that the premise for the "lockdown" and acceptance of the enormous harm it has done was that C19 was hugely worse than the seasonal flu. It is just that which has been proven false.

As shown here in exhaustive, fully-documented detail, the facts make clear that a huge portion of the alleged "199,207 deaths from C19" can in no way be reliably attributed to the virus.

Further, even if one accepts the 199,207 figure for the sake of argument, a disease which simply contributed (at its worst) to the deaths of elderly people already imperiled by an average of 2.6 threatening conditions as the CDC admits to be the case in 94% of the fatalities making up the scary big number of allegedly C19-related deaths is in no way worse than the typical flu. Had those poor folks contracted the flu instead of (perhaps) C19 (as was almost certainly the case for many of them) they would have succumbed just as readily.

Here's an example of that reality: While I was in Vermont doing a CtC seminar in 2018, my 90-year-old mother caught the flu at her senior living center. Although she was in good health otherwise, it was touch and go for her for the first several days (and then was threatening again in a different way due to the nearly ten days in the hospital, which is very debilitating to the elderly).

But more to the point, five other elderly residents of Mom's facility who also caught the same flu died of it. C19 could have done no greater harm to these poor folks, and thus is no greater threat than the flu we have lived with for all of time without "lockdowns", "social distancing", masks, and hysterical panic.

***

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS RULED that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfe's "lockdown" executive orders are unconstitutional. Do you care?

You shouldn't. Wolfe's orders are plainly unconstitutional, being a devising, issuance and enforcement of laws by the executive branch of the state, rather than the legislature. This is forbidden, even if the legislature has purported to authorize it-- which is an act outside the legislature's own powers. As Pennsylvania's Constitution declares in Article II, sec. 1:

§ 1. Legislative power. The legislative power of this Commonwealth shall be vested in a General Assembly, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.

So why would anyone need, or wait for, a declaration of a judge to vindicate their own clear and unambiguous Constitution? Every single Pennsylvanian can read the law for him- or herself, and no one needs a court to declare what it says.

THE DEFERENCE TO COURTS being spoken of here is an unnatural and disastrous subordination of the people to the state (of which the courts are a part). To grasp this, just ask yourself: If the court had ruled otherwise would that really mean that Pennsylvanians are, and lawfully can be, ruled by the whim of their governor and must simply make their peace with this transformation of their lives and the law?

Or if the court had ruled otherwise, would you be-- could you properly be-- obliged to wait for other courts to opine on the matter, possibly over the course of years, but certainly for some time, even if just days? All the while during which your livelihood was eroded and perhaps permanently destroyed, and your ability to meet and plan with others for the overcoming of the destructive impositions upon you, either by means of the political process or otherwise was curtailed by threat of arrest and punishment?

Perish the thought!

As Thomas Jefferson admonished us:

“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions (is) a very dangerous doctrine indeed and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”

...and:

"A free people claim their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate."

John Locke, whose political philosophy chiefly informs the American experiment, speaks to the same subject thusly:

Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers. This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature. It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other"

I salute federal district court judge William Stickman IV for getting it right, but in this matter his opinion is- or should be-- of no more moment to the views of grown-up Americans than that of any other citizen.

To those waiting for judicial permission to assert their rights in other states I (and my man, Samuel Adams) say:

"Things that you treat as vulnerable to the discretions of others have been surrendered as "rights". You have none such, and you are not sovereigns, but subjects.

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."

***

P.S. COMPLETELY OFF-TOPIC day-dream item: With the new TV season beginning, wouldn't it be nice to see someone put on a show whose protagonists are resisters to the despotic "lockdown" assaults and the faked up "science" by which they are supported?

I'm thinking of something like a modern version of what those my age will remember as Disney's 'Swamp Fox' series from back in 1959 - 1961.

I guarantee such a show, if faithfully and admiringly written, would have a huge audience. And it would do the country much good, as well, don't you think?

***

P.P.S. WITH THE DEMISE LAST WEEK of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Donald Trump has an unexpected but welcome opportunity to partially rectify the mistake of nominating Brett Kavanaugh over Amy Coney Barrett last time around by putting Barrett up for the position now. He should jump on it, and if that's who he forwards (and everyone should encourage him to do so), everyone should lobby their senators hard to confirm that nomination.

Let's Celebrate More Victories!!

A happy exercise by which we can all get pumped up with much-needed activism energy.

TAX AGENCY ACTIVITY IS STILL bogged-down with C19 lunacy, and most folks are still within only eight weeks of having filed returns. So refund issuance remains sparse, at this time.

But still, the wheels do continue to grind on, if more slowly than usual. Thus, a few folks do have recent victories to share, for the benefit of everyone's spirits. We'll start with...

David & Valerie Denning

DAVID AND VALERIE SHARE THEIR fifth victory on behalf of the rule of law, all secured within the last 15 months. This one, issued about four weeks ago, is for 2018, from the state of California, on an amended return and with interest added to the refund:

Here is the return that secured this excellent victory.

***

Brian Farmer

BRIAN ALSO SHARES A FIFTH VICTORY today. Because for many years Brian (who is featured in this informative video) has been able to arrange his affairs so as to have nothing withheld from him and nothing reported about him, this latest refund, issued two weeks ago by Ohio of everything withheld during 2019, comes many years since Brian's previous victories, but is all the more pleasing for the long time in between:

Here is the filing that produced this victory.

***

Ryan MacCubbin

RYAN SHARES HIS FIRST TWO VICTORIES TODAY-- one from New Mexico for 2015, secured in September, 2019, with a little bit of interest reflecting a delay by the state in sending the check after the April, 2019 filing:

...and one from the same state for 2016, interest-free due to being promptly issued after the April, 2020 filing (but only after this exchange):

(Ryan has recently received a couple of more complete refunds from New Mexico-- including for 2019 just a few days ago-- which will be sent along for posting soon.)

***

Brad & Sheri Edwards

BRAD AND SHERI PRESENT THEIR third and fourth victories today, both for 2017, with the one from California having been received not quite two years ago:

...on this educated filing; and the other from the feds being sent out two months ago:

...in response to this educated filing, made back in 2018, and subjected afterwards to a lot of IRS hemming and hawing and dodging and weaving before this victory-in-progress notice issued.

By way of this notice, the agency acknowledges that Brad and Sheri had done nothing taxable and owed no "employment"-related taxes (as shown by the agreement that the couple is entitled to the return of everything withheld under Chapter 24 of 26 USC). But despite that admission and its plain implications, the IRS is still attempting to hold back what was withheld from Brad and Sheri as FICA surtaxes (a ploy discussed here)

It must be said that as originally sent, Brad and Sheri's 4852 forms had mistakenly reported the FICA withholdings in combination with the nominal federal income tax withheld figures on line 7e (corrected versions are included in the filing at the link above in order to show just what has been excluded from the refund notice). This may be responsible in some way for this particular "victory-in-progress" situation, although of course the tax agency was also in possession of withholding reports from those who paid Brad and Sheri, and theirs is not the only instance in which this ploy has been attempted, as has been shown...

Onward and upward, either way. With the IRS having made its key admission, and the facts being what they are, Brad and Sheri can expect correction of the theft at some point in the future, if they persevere.

SO, WELL DONE, David & Valerie, Brian, Ryan, and Brad & Sheri! These great victories join those of the tens of thousands of other awakened and activated Americans represented here. Each constitutes another critical step toward the restoration of the Founders republic and the true rule of law.

Don't you wish your victories were proudly posted, too?

It's easy. Stand up on behalf of the law, and then share the evidence.

That's all there is to it!

BTW, DON'T YOU WISH YOUR INSPIRING BEING-THE-STORM VIDEO was posted, too, like David's and Brian's? This is easy to do, and very important (plus it can get you some great LHC swag!). See (and carefully read in their entirety) these guidelines and encouragements.

Remember, it's all about upholding the law, and that is YOUR responsibility. Awakening others to this high and honorable duty is the best way to make it happen.

"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

 

"The Tax Code represents the genius of legal fiction... The IRS has never really known why people pay the income tax... The IRS encourages voluntary compliance, through FEAR."

-Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program, in his book ‘When You Owe The IRS’

 

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

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.

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...

Trump Regime vs. The ICC: The Wrong Side Of "Sovereignty"

by Thomas Knapp

In June, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order providing for sanctions against persons who “have directly engaged in any effort by the [International Criminal Court] to investigate, arrest, detain, or prosecute any United States personnel without the consent of the United States.”

On September 2, The US regime imposed such sanctions on two ICC officials: Fatou Bensouda, the court’s chief prosecutor, and Phakiso Mochchoko, head of its Jurisdiction, Complementarity, and Cooperation Division.”

Their offense? Investigating allegations of US war crimes in Afghanistan.

Such investigations, says White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, “are an attack on the rights of the American people and threaten to infringe upon our national sovereignty.”

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thunders that the US regime “will not tolerate [the ICC’s] illegitimate attempts to subject Americans to its jurisdiction.”

There certainly are questions of sovereignty and jurisdiction here, but Pompeo and Company are on the wrong side of those questions.

Afghanistan’s US-installed, US-allied regime ratified the Rome Statute in 2003, thereby placing war crimes committed on its territory, and the persons accused of committing those crimes, under the court’s jurisdiction.

Like it or not, that assignment of jurisdiction is an exercise of Afghan sovereignty.

Continued...

Click here to read the rest of this article

...and then proceed to the afterword below...

 

Afterword

THOMAS KNAPP HAS AN EASY TARGET here, and makes short work of the simple legal issues. Trump and Pompeo are simply trying to bluster and threaten their way out of being confined to the US or risk arrest abroad for their part in crimes of the sort revealed by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. Their "legal" arguments are ridiculous.

Their legal arguments are ESPECIALLY ridiculous-- and shamefully hypocritical-- when considered in light of the Trump administration's strenuous effort to seize Assange and drag him to the US for show trial in a kangaroo court in Virginia. That attempt involves charges for acts taken by a non-American, signatory to no agreement of duty, in foreign countries and entirely outside of US jurisdiction.

Assange acted even beyond the scope of the one statutory jurisdictional provision in US law which extends United States reach outside its technical geographical borders.

Nonetheless, the Trump administration asserts that it can lawfully put on trial and punish anyone on whom it can successfully lay its hands for offenses to its pride or for compromising its efforts to keep the American people in the dark about crimes it commits in their name, and at the cost of their blood, treasure, and future relations with the rest of the world. Thus, the heinous effort to extradite Julian Assange.

But heaven forbid that anybody on Earth presume to hold any US official accountable save only US authorities themselves-- even though such authorities have shown over the course of decades that they will impose no accountability whatever, even for outright torture, kidnapping, murder and aggressive war.

These people are such an embarrassment!

THE ANSWER TO THE SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR of United States officials is simple, even if the American People are the only ones able to deploy it: Shrink the US Leviathan until it can no longer bestride the Earth with criminal impunity. The alternative is to wait until the rest of the world unites in enmity against America and either ruins us economically or destroys us militarily.

Here is the introduction document by which anyone can learn the critical importance, the promise and the unstoppable character of the "shrinking Leviathan" solution.

I wish that you would at least share them with others, even if you cannot see why you should bother.

Let your recipient make his or her OWN mind up on whether the sharing was worthwhile. You might end up pleasantly surprised-- people grow under the right conditions, and these are now very much the right conditions.

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..."

"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.

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 (fifteenth) 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.

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.
