Economics is 90% ethics and 10% math. Plunder being the timeless grail of all governments, it's always helpful to follow the money. If you reduced the current $3,800,000,000,000 tsunami of federal revenues down to about $700 billion annually, you'd have enough to fund all lawful federal powers (those 17 powers we granted it in the Constitution, Art I Sec 8). Everything else that Washington DC does today -- the other $3,100,000,000,000 annually...is ILLEGAL.
Think about that corruption; that is a HUGE crime cartel; the largest on earth, in monetary terms. Thus, to stop it, the citizenry must have the presence of mind and the ethical fortitude to SHUT OFF THE FUNDS. That is the ethical purpose of the 40-year-old Tax Honesty movement. It is simple ethics; simple constitutional law: stop the plunder and illegal activity through LAWFUL financial embargo.
There are an estimated 67 million non-filers today; tens of millions of us are lawfully, consciously holding government to account, shutting off the spigot. "Household secession", you might call it. Thus, as this corrupt Congress goes a bridge too far (as they have done many times before!) we Nontaxpayers can at least smile and know that WE don't fund the criminals. We obey the Tax Code (believe it or not, it's perfectly constitutional and fine left just as it is!) and we make our IRS employees obey it also!
Time to fight criminals with the only thing they understand: cut off their money, and then start imprisoning them.

"A coercive government in power" is 100% the fault of lazy, or ignorant, or terrorised citizens. All three of those characteristics are un-American. We have a duty as citizens; it's time we began discharging that duty.
True FMC (as defined by Hayek, von Mises, or Rothbard) cannot be blamed for our current economic mess because it hasn't existed since the end of Andrew Jackson's presidency.
In his 1837 farewell address, President Jackson warned us that the financial empire ("the money powers" who prowl the earth in every age) would rear its head again immediately, and under the federal jacklboots of Dishonest Abe, it did.
The "divide and conquer" strategic plan of the global elite kept America atomised and warring with itself even after Lincoln's "shock and awe" troops were finished -- for over a century and a half now, through the donkey and elephant machines.
Government schools keep the people ignorant, and this completes Marx's plan for America. Marx was an astute follower of Abe Lincoln; I recommend the book "Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists" to learn just how bad things have been since that monster was in the White House.
For background in ethical ('Austrian school') economics and insight into America's economic and legal retrogression from a free market and a constitutional republic, every American should read, in order of importance:

Thank you,'Dread Pirate'; I would be happy to be interviewed by the Judge to talk about AmericaAgain!, the first enforcement mechanism for the 9th and 10th Amendments in our history:
-Bringing members of Congress to STATE court on civil and criminal charges in State statutes that coincide with many of the crimes they've been committing for a century as an "immune" federal junta
-Drafting and pushing passage of OUR legislation to take back what they've stolen from us (the People and the States) through THEIR legislation, usually drafted by industry and billionaire individuals who own them
-Lawfully pushing Tax Honesty to scale, to cut back federal revenues by 50-75%, which would still be far more than required to fund all enumerated powers of Congress.
It's time to take our republic back, by enforcing the Supreme Law. We can do it, from home, by the millions. We have the law on our side and we outnumber them 50,000 to 1. The HQ team at AmericaAgain! is waiting to work for YOU, so we can start taking our lives and liberties back from criminals.
Actually enforcing the 9th and 10th Amendments is 200 years overdue. We certainly can't trust State legislators to put teeth in the 10th, but if We The People get serious about the 9th, we will enforce BOTH against the manifestly corrupt Congress.
John, I am no Galileo, but your image of Larry Williams CPA as a wicked high priest...that's a funny image.
Yes, I wrote too fast; I knew and have written elsewhere that the Schulz ruling came from the 2nd Circus, not the Supremes. I know Bob Schulz and his 501c3 "chickens-lets-petition the-foxes!" show; he'd never be heard at the USSC.
What's funny is that Larry played right along with me for two weeks now, and he has laid out all his cards for the record, for later visitors. Typical shifty lawer, laying out absolute garbage for months...making assertions that he KNOWS are complete nonsense, but he does is anyway, to impress HIMSELF.
He makes "the big bucks", though...doing IRS work-arounds for his seedier clients, I presume? Those who really DO believe they owe a tax, but want to evade it?
Of course, Larry Einstein CPA also knows that no one but the three of us is even following this thread. Oh, wait...except for his puppet-handler, Dan Evans (don't pull too hard, Dan; you'll choke off LarryBoy's circulation!)
Okay, and possibly Dale Eastman is still watching along for grins. But I doubt it.
Anyway, I just think it's funny. Larry in his pointy black hat and his baggy black cape, conjuring and sliding side to side in the old soft-shoe of the doddering High Priest.
I tell you, Larry, you should be the next IRS Commish. You do a darned good job of it. Even if you wouldn't make the "big bucks" in the protection racket. (What do you always say, Larry? Boo hoo?)
I really said all I have to say, three times over. But darn if it isn't fun, poking your big, fish-white belly just to watch you spit up your dentures and hop like a toad again, Larry!
Here, LarryBoy, I'll try to wean myself again from poking you...but boy howdy, it's darned habit-forming...
John, I'll see you on the radio. You two fellows did just great here alone for eight months; I think you'll do great for the next year or so without me. It really has been fun, seriously. I've enjoyed the sparring and the laughs. :)
Tax Honesty is just a secondary issue. I haven't lost anything to IRS, or ever been harmed by them. I filed my ex parte case in 2004 in a Texas court, as a test of the thesis that federal actors who are state residents may be brought into a state court for violating state laws, just like any other Texan.
In other words, no one is above the laws. Government employees can't do illegal things and just claim immunity.
Full disclosure: Judge Raul Vasquez, 111th District of Texas, sidestepped his duty under Texas Government Code 51.901 by saying in effect, "this IRS employee that filed a fraudulent lien against you? She's a judicial entity; take it up with her!"
So what did I gain by pursuing my ex parte case against the IRS actors? I learned that if you bring a clear-cut crime before one state judge alone, that wimp is more willing to call the IRS a judicial branch agency, rather than to call a federal fraudster, a fraudster.
My experience in pursuing that ex parte action against Congress' bag-men, helped me to dig deeper into Madison's writing about the 9th and 10th Amendments; about the States' power over the federal creature. That experience led to my development of the tactical aspect of the AmericaAgain! Indictment Engine(TM), and gave tactical direction to our entire legal section.
We now know that when you bring a bent federal actor into a state court for state crimes, you have to do it in large numbers. You can't have one engineer, pro se, in a lawyer's suit filing his own briefs and memoranda, and with no one else in the 'gallery'. You need to bring a FLEET of similar actions on the same calendar period across your state, against SEVERAL members of Congress, and PACK the courtroom.
Justice will out, eventually. These are all but trials in the crucible of liberty and law. Mr. Madison gave us a singularly magnificent form of government, but he couldn't do everything. He didn't tell us exactly how to enforce the 9th and 10th Amendments, so we have crininals in Cogress, with criminals like Larry the CPA shilling for them in the private sector.
Now we KNOW how to enforce those Amendments, and we're coming for the bad guys, through AmericaAgain! chapters, as they grow. It will take time; but then, it has taken 150 years to fall this far. We learn and we climb.
While the US Supremes may have been clear that an IRS "summons" is just a piece of paper unless it has a (real, not 'tax court') court's judgment attached, in Texas the Penal Code is a great deal stronger about these IRS frauds:
TEXAS PENAL CODE
CHAPTER 32. FRAUD
§ 32.48. SIMULATING LEGAL PROCESS.
"(a) A person commits an offense if the person recklessly causes to be delivered to another ***any document that simulates a summons, complaint,
judgment, or other court process*** with the intent to:
(1) induce payment of a claim from another person; or
(2) cause another to:
(A) submit to the putative authority of the document; or
(B) take any action or refrain from taking any action in response to the document, in compliance with the document, or on the basis of the document.
(b) Proof that the document was mailed to any person with
the intent that it be forwarded to the intended recipient is a
sufficient showing that the document was delivered.
(c) It is not a defense to prosecution under this section that the simulating document: (1) states that it is not legal process; or (2) purports to have been issued or authorized by a person or entity who did not have lawful authority to issue or authorize the document.
***(d) If it is shown on the trial of an offense under this section that the simulating document was filed with, presented to, or delivered to a clerk of a court or an employee of a clerk of a court created or established under the constitution or laws of this
state, there is a rebuttable presumption that the document was delivered with the intent described by Subsection (a).***
(f) If it is shown on the trial of an offense under this section that the defendant has previously been convicted of a violation of this section, the offense is a state jail felony."
So. If you live in Texas, and if you or your employer or client(s) have ever been harassed or defrauded by IRS in these ways, please understand that the US Supreme Court and the Penal Code of Texas give you perfectly good reason to take action against the terrorists.
The US Supreme Court also exposes the favorite IRS terrorist tactic of frightening employers and clients of non-filers by sending them bogus (administrative, NOT judicial branch) 'summonses'. This is clearly fraud; an administrative-branch agency sending a letter, usually by certified mail with its usual black bars and bar-codes to make it extra-scary...with the word:
...across the top. This is an attempt to terrorise citizens into compliance, as though issued by a judge or other judicial authority.
The US Supreme Court in Schulz v IRS (2005) shines the light on these terrorist tactics:
"We view ourselves today as completing a task begun forty years ago and hold that, absent an effort to seek enforcement through a federal court, ***IRS summonses apply no force to taxpayers, and no consequence whatever can befall a taxpayer who refuses, ignores, or otherwise does not comply with an IRS summons*** until that summons is backed by a federal court order. "
Larry the Wizard of Oz, CPA would have you think otherwise.
Texas Government Code 51.901 provides clear tests for a fraudulent lien, and I have demonstrated to the Court that the NFTL filed against me meets two of the statute’s tests, either one of which alone is sufficient to prove fraud. Moreover, other laws apply to this common IRS practice of manufacturing “judgment liens” without the judiciary; Texas Property Code, Chapter 52 (‘Judgment Liens’) provides statutory requirements totally consonant with TGC 51.901:
§ 52.003. CONTENTS OF ABSTRACT. (a) An abstract of a judgment must show: (1) the names of the plaintiff and defendant; (2) the birthdate and driver's license number of the defendant, if available to the clerk or justice; (3) the number of the suit in which the judgment was rendered; (4) the defendant's address, or if the address is not shown in the suit, the nature of citation and the date and place of service of citation; (5) the date on which the judgment was rendered; (6) the amount for which the judgment was rendered and the balance due; (7) the amount of the balance due, if any, for child support arrearage; and (8) the rate of interest specified in the judgment.
These laws are clear once they are known – but Texas county clerks are usually not aware of their legal duty under these statutes on fraudulent lien filing and judgment liens, both of which apply to this favorite IRS tactic.
The IRS commits fraud every day in Texas. If you don't know this, you can't defend yourself against Nancy Pelosi's caviar-crew, including shysters like Larry Williams.
In vacating and remanding a contest RE a bogus 'notice of federal tax lien', even the US Supreme Court in its ruling in Aquilino (1960) refused to make a ruling about property rights with no federal nexus:
"This conflict should not be resolved by this Court, but by the highest court of the State of New York. We cannot say from the opinion of the Court of Appeals that it has been satisfactorily resolved. 6 We find no discussion in the court's opinion to indicate the nature of the property rights possessed by the taxpayer under state law. Nor is the application to be made of federal law clearly defined. We believe that it is in the interests of all concerned to have these questions decided by the state courts of New York."
The US Supreme Court was not too big for its britches...but then the Larry the CPA behind the curtain has some very, VERY baggy britches!
Larry Williams has here proven his incompetence as an attorney. I am just a lowly engineer, yet the U.S. Supreme Court (who, I promise you, knows more than Larry the CPA, who likes to "hide the ball"...er...meaning, "hide his brain") sides with me, not with Larry the CPA.
Yes, you heard that right; the US Supreme Court sides with me; read the Tax Honesty Primer. I have corresponded with IRS for 11 years about all this; if they had half the dizzying intellect of Larry the CPA, of course, I would be in prison (where Larry belongs). But that's okay; so far the legal profession and the CPAs get Larry all to themselves (if Larry is to be believed; for all we know, he works cleaning acquariums at a pet shop, and plays lawyer on the internet).
Anyway, the (13) IRS employees that I list on the Tax Honesty Primer -- none of them have had anything but evasion for me, over 11 years. Hardly stellar "customer service".
Larry the CPA...sigh...what can you say? His dizzying intellect brings to mind the little Vizzini characheter in The Princess Bride. Hilarious, the way he hops from foot to foot, "Hey! What about it, boys! Blah blah blah, you STUPID!!" "Loser!!" "Tax protestor!! HAHAHAHAAAAA!!"
In the first place, if Larry the CPA was really a lawyer, he'd know basic property law. He'd know that the area is STATE, not federal. He'd know that any matter dealing with your property is essentially a STATE matter, and that when even the federal government wants to "relieve" you of some of your physical property (land, house, etc) this is a STATE matter.
In the matter of these "liens" that are not liens at all -- because there is no abstract of judgment yet, from any court, federal, state, or even county -- that are nonetheless filed in state records as a lien...THAT IS FRAUD IN TEXAS.
Read the Texas Penal Code and Texas Government Code, Larry Einstein! I can't believe you're as stupid as you act, really.
No actor -- whether state, federal, foreign, or from Alpha Centauri -- has a lien against the property of a Texan unless a contract exists and a judgment exists. Larry hasn't read the law in Texas; I have. It's in English.
This means that Larry the CPA's latter-day-gnostic beliefs about his secret decoder ring are just theatrics. He really is a short little old guy in his baggy underpants, behind the curtain. He's "hiding the ball" all right.
In fact, he's hiding a lot more than that.
No, you guessed wrong. Six years ago, they committed fraud according to TX Govt Code 51.901c, filing an inchoate document and calling it a "lien". The Texas Property Code gives statutory minima for a choate lien: agreement between parties and an abstract of judgment from a court. Smith can't just file a purported "lien" in your county records, claiming that "Jones owes me a million bucks, so there is hereby created a lien...", which is the language used on IRS notices of 'federal tax lien'.
It's a scam, and Congress makes it continue or Nancy Pelosi's caviar and jet fuel will be cut off, and Barney Frank's...
(Well, we won't go there.)
You get the picture. Most people including fiduciaries (bankers and mortgage companies) roll over and play dead for this state-sponsored terror organization masquerading as a tax collector. As far as I can tell, such fiduciaries are complicit in these crimes under Texas law, and they should be held responsible for it by those whose lives are ruined by IRS running frauds in Texas county records.
They didn't ruin my life because I did my homework. LarryBoy CPA says that "the IRS doesn't care about your Texas laws", and that's about the most truthful thing he has said on this tread in nine months. The IRS doesn't care; Congress DEMANDS that it keep bringing in that $3.7 TRILLION per year, or they don't get their opulent Kremlin lifestyles.
Those multi-trillion-dollar racketeers are going down. Their bag-men may nab Pete Hendrickson for his stupidity, but the mutli-trillion-dollar Bernie Madoffs in the US Congress are going DOWN. AmericaAgain! -- which is James Madison on a motorcycle -- is coming to your town, as soon as you become an AmericaAgain! member and start a local chapter.
Penny-ante terrorists like Larry Williams CPA are nothing. The IRS is not your enemy; they are stupid government line workers who do what their upline manager sets them to do every day. Even the upline manager is only doing what the IRS commissioner makes them do. And the commish? With his spiked collar, he sits on the lap of the corrupt kingpin in Congress, who designed the check-skimming scam two generations ago, and has raped us raw ever since.
Although 67 million of us are free, still 115 million of us are not. Congress still gets away with murder...actually with suicides, destroyed families and businesses, millions of man-hours of tax paperwork, abject terror of one's own employees, etc.
We The People are finished with this rape and pillage. We will now begin introducing the Congress to the long-lost 9th and 10th Amendments. If they don't get that, our state courts will bring them home and introduce them to a grand jury and to an orange jumpsuit, leg chains, and a perp walk.
While AmericaAgain! and many other citizen actions build steam, we can get some comic relief, watching feckless Einsteins like Larry Williams CPA, do their terrorist imitations.
It doesn't work on me, Larry. I took the red pill, like 67 million other non-filers. You go charge your clients "the big bucks" as you say. Hopefully, one or more of them will get you into federal prison for your crimes. But one way or another, you can do what I've always told the blue-light IRS terrorists they can do...
Go POUND SAND.
Larry claims that IRS employees living in Texas are above the law; that they aren't afraid of Texas Penal Code 32.48, or Texas Govt Code 51.901c, because if you work for IRS you can break state criminal laws at will.
Larry is not only evil; Larry Williams CPA is a blithering idiot. I guess for me he's been a barrel of laughs this "tax season". It just chills me to think how many marriages, businesses, homes, and lives are being destroyed right now, coast to coast, at the hands of such as Larry, and the corrupt Congress' terrorist operation at the IRS...the most feared organization in America.
May God bring light to those who will seek it, and judgment to those who richly deserve it, I pray in Christ's name.
Yes, here's the US Supreme Court, which rulings have the SAME WEIGHT AS THE TAX CODE, according to the Internal Revenue Manual:
"Keeping in mind the well-settled rule that the citizen is exempt
from taxation unless the same is imposed by clear and unequivocal
language, and that where the construction of a tax law is doubtful,
the doubt is to be resolved in favor of those upon whom the tax is sought to
be laid.” Spreckels Sugar Refining Co. v. McClain, 192 U.S. 297 (1904)
“In the interpretation of statutes levying taxes it is the established rule not
to extend their provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import of the
language used, or to enlarge their operations so as to embrace matters not
specifically pointed out. In case of doubt they are construed most strongly
against the government, and in favor of the citizen.” Gould v. Gould, 245 U.S. 151 (1917)
“In view of other settled rules of statutory construction, which teach that a law is
presumed, in the absence of clear expression to the contrary, to operate
prospectively; that, if doubt exists as to the construction of a taxing statute,
the doubt should be resolved in favor of the taxpayer...” Hassett v. Welch., 303 US 303, 82 L Ed 858. (1938)
Yes; this is obviously a principle of law..it is WELL-SETTLED law. So don't let Larry throw FairyTax dust in your eyes from behind the curtain. These are general principles about tax law, and principles of law are NOT overturned because any one case that is later overturned...might happen to mention such a principle! What an idiotic assertion Larry made last week in that vein.
Oh...one more cite, from Sutherland's Rules of Statutory Construction...
66:1 Strict Construction of Statutes Creating Tax Liability
"[I]t is a settled rule that tax laws are to be strictly construed against the
state and in favor of the taxpayer. Where there is reasonable doubt of the
meaning of a revenue statute, the doubt is resolved in favor of those taxed.
Revenue laws are considered neither remedial statutes, nor laws founded upon any public policy, and are therefore not liberally construed.”
So. Just as I don't bother with federal laws about bulk pesticide disposal, nuclear powerplant operation, or airline pilot training standards -- I don't fear the huge Tax Code because it is constitutional…and it doesn't apply to me.
I reiterate: the Tax Code does make *some people* subject to an income tax. I just showed you a very long list. But I'm not on that list; likely neither are you.
I've remained a law-abiding, happy Nontaxpayer for 11 years, although the IRS has sent me evasive non-responses and also threats over all those years. If a section of law actually existed, how long would that take to dig up? A minute or two.
Instead, no matter how often I've asked that question of the IRS, they violate their operations manual, violate the law by engaging in extortion, and they demonstrate a pattern of willful evasion. For 11 years, they have passed the hot potato from one regional office to another like bullies in a playground...or saying "we haven't finished our research; we'll get back to you."
Their dog ate their homework. And in two weeks, I have repeatedly done a slap-down of a blue-light terrorist, Larry the CPA. But Larry gets up to make further empty threats.
After all, it's still Tax Terror Season.
Black’s Law Dictionary
Legal principle *inclusio unius est exclusio alterius*:
"where law expressly describes a particular situation to which it shall
apply, an irrefutable inference must be drawn that what is omitted or excluded
was intended to be omitted or excluded.”
I just showed you many sections of the Code describing 'particular situations to which it shall apply'. I can find nothing showing that my activities are likewise taxable, so “an irrefutable inference must be drawn” by IRS that my income is not taxable unless they can show otherwise.
This is EXACTLY what their employee manual demands, too:
Internal Revenue Manual
"Examiners are responsible for determining the correct tax liability as prescribed by the Internal Revenue Code. **It is imperative that examiners can identify the applicable law**, correctly interpret its meaning in light of congressional intent, and, in a fair and impartial manner, correctly apply the law based on the facts and circumstances of the case.”
Internal Revenue Manual
188.8.131.52 Researching Tax Law.
"Conclusions reached by examiners must reflect correct application of the law, regulations, court cases, revenue rulings, etc. Examiners must correctly determine the meaning of statutory provisions and **not adopt strained interpretation**.”
Internal Revenue Manual
184.108.40.206.1.1 Authority of the Internal Revenue Code.
"The Internal Revenue Code is generally binding on all courts of law. The courts give great importance to the ***literal language*** of the Code.”
Internal Revenue Manual
220.127.116.11.9.8 Importance of Court Decisions.
"The Internal Revenue Service must follow Supreme Court decisions. For examiners, ***Supreme Court decisions have the same weight as the Code***.”
So, does the US Supreme Court agree with this? In my next post, you'll see, yes it certainly does.
I found that 'Taxpayer' is defined in 7701(a)14 as one who is ‘subject to any internal revenue law’. The Supreme Court ruled that according to the Constitution, *everybody* can't be subject to it, so I just had to find a section or sections of the Tax Code making *some* people subject to it.
By the way, this means **the Tax Code is constitutional**, contrary to what some 'tax protestor' theories claim.
In my 11 years digging through Congress’ purposeful maze, I certainly have found things that make a person into a ‘taxpayer’ as defined in the Internal Revenue Code; things that apparently create taxable income:
If I live in D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, or the Northern Mariana Islands…If I'm involved in manufacture or sale of alcohol, tobacco, or firearms…If I'm an officer or employee of the federal government…If I operate a merchant vessel…If I'm a nonresident alien or a principal of a foreign corporation with income derived from sources within the United States…If I'm a resident alien lawfully admitted to a State of the Union, the District of Columbia, or an insular possession of the United States…
If I entered a voluntary withholding agreement for government personnel withholding either as an ‘employee’ (3401(c)) or an ‘employer’ (3401(d)) (See 26 CFR §31.3402(p)-1)…If I’ve ever been notified by the Treasury Financial Management Service that I was responsible for administration of government personnel withholding (26 U.S.C. § 3403), or have applied for and received a Form 8655 Reporting Agent Authorization certificate…
If I'm an officer or employee of the Treasury or any bureau of the Dept of the Treasury subject to IRS authority related to submission of collected taxes delegated by Treasury Order 150-15…If I receive items of taxable income from foreign sources, foreign mineral income, or income from foreign oil and gas extraction…
If I receive income from a China Trade Act corporation…If I receive income from a foreign controlled corporation as fiduciary agent of the corporation…If I receive income from insurance of U.S. risks under 26 U.S.C. 953(b)(5)…If I receive taxable items of income from operation of an agreement vessel under section 607 of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, as amended…If I receive items of income from a public works contract subject to Federal income and Social Security tax withholding…
If I own stock in, do business with, or have anything else to do with a corporation in which the [Federal] United States of America owns stock. (See notes following 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Chapter 194, 40 Stat. 1015)…If I receive wages, remuneration, or other compensation as an officer or employee of an oceangoing vessel construed as an American employer…
If I receive gambling winnings from the District of Columbia or insular possessions of the United States…If I receive items of income from maritime (international) trade in alcohol, tobacco or firearms…If I receive items of income from production and/or distribution of alcohol, tobacco or firearms in the District of Columbia or insular possessions of the United States… If I receive any items of income from activities taking place within an “internal revenue district” as such districts have been established under authority of 26 USC 7621 (U.S. Customs ports)… If I receive items of income from maritime (international) trade in opium, cocaine or other controlled substances.
Wow...so many *taxable activities* that make a person ‘subject to a tax'. Okay, so there they are in specific language all over the Tax Code. But I haven't found my line of work in there anywhere. In fact, I haven't found the activities of the average American living and working in one of the 50 States.
Well-settled law, and the Internal Revenue Manual says something about that, as you'll see in my next post.
After the USSC rulings in Pollock over a century ago, Congress couldn’t put a universal tax on everyone, as they tried to do in 1894. The high court ruled that Congress had to obey the Constitution’s rules for uniformity and apportionment. So Congress cooked up a Byzantine, huge new Tax Code.
I find that Congress did indeed make *SOME* people liable for income taxes. That’s the story told by professional engineer and former Idaho Rep. Phil Hart in his book detailing the racket’s birth, ca. 1909-1913.
Just because Larry the CPA says, “I know the law, and Larry the CPA says…” this can’t create a legal duty for me to keep records, file forms, or pay Congress one cent through its terrorist arm (IRS). Only operation of law or contract can create such a duty:
“The taxpayer must be liable for the tax. Tax liability is a condition precedent to the demand. Merely demanding payment, even repeatedly, does not cause liability.” Boathe v. Terry, 713 F.2d 1405, at 1414 (1983)
No matter how angry and terroristic they are, IRS can’t create liability for us 67 million non-filers. Larry the CPA portrays IRS employees as evil, black-hooded executioners who can get you unless you do what he says. This terror shill makes “the big bucks”, as he claims, by such terrorist antics. But IRS employees are your administrative-branch employees, not a judicial officer!
The IRS can't write laws; like me and you and every member of Congress, they must OBEY laws. (More on which, presently.)
For 11 years, I’ve asked a simple question of the IRS. After the US Supreme Court ruled the plenary language of the 1894 Revenue Act to be unconstitutional (it had said “everybody owes taxes, from any activity”) – Congress had to re-write the tax law, and they did. I find no problem with the Tax Code, and I obey it.
Larry has made repeated libelous assertions on this thread. Yet, I do not protest taxation, nor am I anti-government. Nor have I ever held the Tax Code to be unconstitutional. Larry is an habitual liar and terrorist.
(Calling him what he is, is not libel; this thread proves my statement of fact.)
So. Larry seeks to instill fear in his fellow citizens, and we have flushed Larry out, to look like the terror shill he is, right in the midst of the 2010 Tax Terror Season. This being when Larry makes his "big bucks" for the whole year, that is inconvenient to Larry Williams, CPA.
Tough. Congress is going to be busted for the largest financial fraud in human history...and frauds like Larry Williams CPA are going to be shown for the terror shills they have always been. It is unethical, immoral, and cruel -- a display of unprofessionalism and moral turpitude -- to tell lies and terrorise people into being afraid of their corrupt employees.
Any racketeer should bee seen this way: not just the ones that are bent cops, or drug dealers, or politicians. Fellows like Bernie Madoff and Larry Williams, CPA are finally shown in public for what they have done to honest, hard working people...all in the name of "protecting you from the IRS". Such exposure is a GOOD thing, and long overdue.
The same goes for the pulpit-pounding scoundrel who never did an honest day's work in his life, and has never seen a copy of the Tax Code...yet shills for Congress' terror organization by preaching, "Render unto Caesar, Christ said!"
Those religious impostors are whitewashed sepulchers and "sons of Hell", as Christ said.
Otherwise, it's all good! :)
Larry the CPA says I should “take my argument to the IRS when they start hassling” me. Of course, Larry is lying again. I’ve told him a dozen times already that for 11 years, IRS people haven’t touched a hair on my head or a dollar in my accounts. Like any vinyl siding salesman, they’ve sent plenty of hopeful invoices…but only for the first five years or so that I was a law-abiding Nontaxpayer.
Once I showed them the many criminal acts they are committing in Texas (see Texas Penal Code 32.48 and Texas Government Code 51.901c), they have been very quiet for the past six years, except for one hopeful invoice every year or so (for old crimes’ sake!).
Larry says that his clients pay him “the big bucks” to help them avoid taxes that the IRS would otherwise have them pay. So Larry plays both sides; he knows that if the IRS went away, Larry the CPA is out of work. The tax industry protection racket is a large part of the American *parasite sector*.
Larry the CPA,
Champ, you feel like you’re in a nuthouse because you’ve led a crooked life. Now that 1/3 of productive Americans are non-filers, we're busting Congress' check-skimming scam, and your 'profession' will suffer. Shining light on the place where you've been working all your life, is making you dizzy.
It's not cognitive dissonance; it's the shame of knowing that people see you’re part of a protection racket.
I have some work to do, but in a few minutes (or hours), I'll continue to humiliate Larry CPA, demonstrating why he's pleading insanity now. I will not resort to logic or theories or 'positions'; I will show you the LAW as written; Larry can't weasel around it. Go look it up yourself, online; it's free.
The LAW has left people like Larry the CPA without moral cover; he's a fraud, and he knows it.
To all you two people still on this thread: I told you that LarryBoy is in his own personal form of Hell, needing to always have a comeback for everyone who tells him he's a corrupt shill for a corrupt, check-skimming Congress.
I won't say I was prescient...but see? Terror is all Larry has up his sleeve; I told you he'd come back with scare tactics, and blather.
Larry gladly admits to being paid "the big bucks" for being part of a protection racket, so his attack against professional engineer and author Phil Hart are specious. Rep. Hart's book, in its third printing, is still the definitive historical survey of the period 1909-1913, when Congress gave birth to today's IRS scam.
What is in that book is TRUE; it is reprinted originals of newspaper articles, Congressional Record excerpts of floor debate, memoranda, etc. This buffoon Williams would impeach that excellent expose on the largest financial crime in American history...because IRS was able to get Rep. Hart to pay some taxes for which he had filed returns? And Larry Williams CPA thinks that proves *what* about Rep. Hart's book?
But a terrorist knows only one song, one dance. So let's see...Larry mentions Irwin Schiff. As I make clear on the Tax Honesty Primer site, filing false returns is simply fraudulent. Filling out and signing promissory documents for anyone (government or private agency) is stupid, if you don't know that you are required by law to do it, or have not agreed contractually to do it.
For 11 years, my IRS employees can't show me that I'm required to do it, but I find in the Tax Code plenty of kinds of activities and domicile classes that ARE required to keep records, file things, and pay. Yet Irwin Schiff spent years selling books telling people how to file as a Taxpayer, but *to fill the form with all zeroes!* That's lying, without even needing to lie; just doing it because some old guy from Las Vegas (living with someone much younger, not his wife) told me I should do it...and send him money for showing me how!? I don't think so.
Larken Rose? An avowed atheist and anarchist, for God's sake (pardon the pun) whom I would not follow for anything. Even if his '861 position' hadn't lost in court so many times, I wouldn't trust the judgment of a person who doesn't believe in God or civil government.
I refer to the "16th Amendment was never ratified!" theory, too, on the Tax Honesty Primer. God bless Bill Benson's long years of work proving that Philander Knox was a Philanderer...but it *didn't matter*; the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 16th didn't establish a new power of taxation. The question is moot!
On this, I disagree with Judge Napolitano, who thinks that repealing the 16th Amendment would make Congress into angels all of a sudden. No chance; we need to get tough on multi-trillion-dollar crime, Judge...even in Congress.
If the Tax Code shows certain occupations, activities, and domicile classes as taxable, then it's futile to say they aren't. It's the law. If it doesn't say that any others are taxable, then the IRS has the burden to show that any particular person owes a tax, because many classes ARE specifically shown in the Code.
That is well-settled law, and that's why I've been a very vocal Tax Honesty proponent, but unharmed by IRS, for 11 years. I don't sell theories or follow theories; I don't sell anything at all with respect to Tax Honesty. Nor do I accept donations.
I only show others what I have found from unimpeachable sources (not CPAs with a dog in the fight) and from Texas and federal law, from US Supreme Court rulings (the IRS employees' manual say they have the same weight as the Tax Code), and from the Internal Revenue Manual.
I don't follow theories of Tax Honesty gurus, or of Tax Dishonesty gurus like Dan Evans and Larry Williams. I don't follow theories; I obey the law, and make my IRS employees obey it, too.
Larry doesn't like that, so you see (as I said he would) he's still spitting out his dentures, and running around with his hair on fire, bringing up everything he can for his side (the IRS goons and Larry's bosses in Congress) and conveniently forgetting there are approximately 10 MILLION non-filers running around free, for every person he just mentioned.
In fact, there are probably 50 times more CPAs serving prison time right now, than the number of gurus LarryBoy just mentioned. But of course, Larry doesn't make a career of his CPA 'activities'; as he says, he just makes "the big bucks" from clients that he can show how to...um...obey the law!
The CPA industry has slidden into private-sector fraud and numerous congressional crimes through the medium of the IRS. This is author Mike Brewster's thesis in his book, available at Amazon.com:
"Unaccountable: How the Accounting Profession Forfeited a Public Trust"
Larry Williams feels it necessary to defend his indefensible 'professions' (a lawyer and a CPA) shilling for criminals in Congress; Larry has hyperventilated for 10 months to keep an 1150-comment thread alive. Do you wonder why? Read the Tax Honesty Primer:
Don't believe the tax industry "good cop-bad cop" routine; Congress plays it better than anyone! No, the IRS is not your real enemy, and there's nothing wrong with the Tax Code. The Congress has used its IRS terrorist arm to shovel in 400% more than federal government needs to exercise its lawful powers under the Constitution.
Federal government should be getting 25% of current revenues, so Congress spends all its time buying and owning labor unions, teacher unions, blue-haired AARP nazis, welfare queens, lifetime military pensioners, 'tax industry' parasites, 'render unto Caesar' parasite pastors, and bureaucrats at school board, city, county, state and federal levels that have made America an operating socialist machine.
Congress is trying to prop up its 150-year-old socialist/fascist empire as it experiences the death of all socialist/fascist systems. Ask any European, any Mexican, any Russion...the dinosaurs are stuck in the tar-pit. They just haven't processed the news yet, that the internet changed the world 20 years ago, and will continue to turn parasites into mere road slime.
LarryBoy behind the curtain still does the little skit in his baggy underpants, even when the curtain's been pulled wide open. He's wondering why you all aren't running for the hills...doesn't the spectre of Pete Hendrickson going to jail TERRORISE you enough? Don't you just want to go find your CPA like right now, today...to save you from the demons!!!???
The fact is that 67 million of us have already exercised our 'family secession' from the crime cartel in Congress. Its petty, blue-light bag men at the IRS don't scare us anymore (we OBEY the law; that's kind of hard to indict, you see).
But Larry must raise his megaphone anyway, for months on end. I understand; it must be tough for an overage Gulag guard with a tattered coat, no cigarettes, a rusty old AK-47, no ammo, and the Kremlin-on-the-Potomac all lit up and opened up for scrutiny...
Are there still 115 million of you in the "fair share" line, buying Larry's services and TurboTax and such? Sure; but this is a free country...some college kids still believe there are monsters under the bed, even in the dorm room.
The thing is: if a law really forces you to turn over 35-40% of your hard-earned substance to Nancy Pelosi for her caviar and jet fuel...the responsible, productive citizen will demand to see the law that supposedly does so.
As I explain in the Tax Honsty Primer, the century-old criminal cartel in Congress is no longer a terror to an estimated 67 million American non-filers. Larry Williams, lawyer and CPA, can fling case cites and threats to the moon; the longer he persists, the more his protests suggest he's one of the bent ones: a typical bent lawyer twisting the facts and law...a typical bent CPA, cooking books.
Larry first mendaciously asserted that "this isn't my career; only a hobby". Then he says he makes "the big bucks" showing clients how to avoid paying the IRS. Ah...they pay *him* instead.
A free people can't be duped and plundered forever, so Congress is busted in one out of three households, and the movement i growing.
In Texas, Congress' IRS terror arm is busted, too. See Texas Penal Code 32.48 and Texas Govt Code 51.901c; isn't that something? Boy howdy...in our state, the legislature does more than swish 10th Amendment rubber-swords.
Still, Tax Honesty is only financial embargo of our domestic enemy. We The People must begin long-term *law enforcement* in the states, through AmericaAgain!
Like most of Congress and the parasite class of Americans, Larry Williams is in denial; mechanically regurgitating legalese and accounting jargon for nine months on one thread. The tragicomic Gulag guard who discovers that his side lost the war; that his captives are no longer afraid of his masters; that he himself is now in a prison whose bars are forged from the realisation that he's been on the enemy side, his whole career.
"The big bucks" can't make that realisation go away, Larry Williams CPA.
[I yield back the remainder of my time to JohnTheTaxist and the gentleman from Synaptic Sparks, if the gentlemen wish to tragically poke poor old LarryBoy to further antics and terror threats, in his own private Hell.]
I know how enamored you are of Pete Hendrickson's book, but frankly I think it's dangerous. Playing games and filing false or misleading returns with IRS is worse than foolish; it's dangerous.
The criminal cartel in Congress needs the $4 trillion to keep coming in every year, even though Congress is legally entitled to only perhaps 25% that much, according to Article I Section 8 of the Constitution. As with any crime cartel: regardless how brazenly immoral they are in the face of law-enforcement, if they have sufficient cashflow, they can beat the good guys year in and year out.
That's what the Congress has been doing since Dishonest Abe's administration: running every racketeering scam you can imagine. An entire library of books has been written by historians, economists, constitutional scholars, et al -- to catalogue the crimes. Andrew Napolitano's books, more than any others, have shown this to be true.
The question is: do We The People want to actually bust the crime cartel? If so, just know that the IRS is just the petty bag-boy for the puppets in Congress. Yes, "puppets", because even your big-shot US senator is a penny-ante puppet, compared to the Big Boys that write the laws for him to pass.
Know your enemy. He is the people who buy, sell, trade, and own members of congress and presidents, like so many chess pieces. He is the fellow who, from the deck of his 350-foot Feadship on the Mediterranean coast, can call a few corporate board members and trade off two senators for nine congressmen, with change left over.
Yet, American citizens for three generations have bent over and taken any crime Congress wants to commit...and then PAID them for it. Stupidity on an astronomical scale, courtesy of the government school system, who produces all the line workers for those same corporate bosses, and teaches those line workers to be good little taxpayers...stay in line for their reaming, every paycheck.
Pete Hendrickson is just one very visible trophy on the bad boys' hood this Tax Terror Season. Congress makes the IRS al Qaeda do this: at least one or two high-profile "tax protestors" have to be publicly hung in the city square during "The Season".
By telling people to file IRS forms demanding refunds from thugs, Mr. Hendrickson did what no smart kid in a high-crime ghetto would do. If you get away from that horrible neighborhood, you never go back for a 'refund', or you'll get a big present instead.
Don't read Hendrickson's book; read Rep. Hart's book...
Read the Tax Code (I recommend Thomson/Reuters' single-volume Code, about $108)...and read the free Tax Honesty Primer:
...then act like a responsible citizen: tell the truth and obey laws...and make sure your employees at IRS do the same!
When you begin to study these things, you begin to see that the next generation may have it better than we've had it in 150 years. We must finally take up that duty that James Madison gave us 220 years ago; that Ben Franklin alluded to when he said they had given us, "a Republic...if you can keep it."
This isn't Russia or Mexico; the law is on our side and Congress is not. So we have work to do, to be AmericaAgain!
These Ten Key Facts are taken from Phil Hart’s book Constitutional Income: Do You Have Any?
I suggest that you read and study for yourself in order to be free, as 67 million non-filers are now free.
Fact #1: “In examining the history of the debate and ratification of the 16th Amendment, this book will show that there is no evidence upon which the government can rely for their claim that the American People desired to have their wages and salaries taxed. No evidence can be found in the law journals of the time, not in the journals on political economy or economics, not in the Congressional Record nor other Congressional documents, nor in any of the newspapers of record of the time. In other words, the government’s position that wages and salaries equals income within the meaning of the 16th Amendment is ‘wholly without foundation.’” (Phil Hart, Constitutional Income: Do You Have Any? pg 10; Alpine Press, 2001).
Fact #2: A tax on wages payable by the wage earner is a Capitation Tax. So says the premier authority on the issue, Adam Smith author of the timeless work Wealth of Nations. (Ibid. pp. 141-145)
Fact #3: Capitation Taxes are direct taxes and are required by the Constitution to be apportioned among the 50 States. The 16th Amendment had nothing to do with Capitation Taxes. (Ibid. pp. 250 - 253.)
Fact #4: In the few hours just prior to the Senate’s passage of the 16th Amendment the morning of July 5, 1909, the Senate twice by vote rejected two separate proposals to include direct taxes within the authority of the 16th Amendment. (Ibid. pp. 193-200.)
Fact #5: In briefs and argument before the Supreme Court in the case of Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railroad, both Brushaber and the Government claimed that the 16th Amendment provided for a direct tax exempted from the Constitutional apportionment rule. The High Court called this claim an “erroneous assumption…wholly without foundation.” (Ibid. pp. 204-210.)
Fact #6: Just weeks after the Brushaber Case was decided, Mr. Stanton, in the case of Stanton v. Baltic Mining Co. again claimed (35 times) that the 16th Amendment created a new class of constitutional tax, that being a direct tax exempted from the apportionment rule. The High Court said in this case that the 16th Amendment created “no new tax.” (Ibid. pp. 212-220.)
Fact #7: In the Stanton and Brushaber Cases, the Supreme Court ruled correctly by excluding direct taxes from the 16th Amendment. The intent of the American People and that of Congress was never to directly tax the American People, but only to tax income severed from accumulated wealth. (Ibid. pp. 244 - 270.)
Fact #8: When the Supreme Court stated in the Eisner, Stanton, and Doyle Cases that “Income may be derived from capital, or labor or from both combined” all these cases dealt with corporations and had nothing to do with the “Are wages income?” question. (Ibid. pp. 239-244, 272-274.)
Fact #9: The genesis of the 16th Amendment was the income tax plank of the Democrat Party’s Presidential Platform of 1908 which clearly reveals the intent of that Amendment: “We favor an income tax as part of our revenue system, and we urge the submission of a constitutional amendment specifically authorizing Congress to levy and collect a tax upon individual and corporate incomes, to the end that wealth may bear its proportional share of the burdens of the federal government.” (Ibid. p. 48.)
Fact #10: There is not, and never has been, any delegation of authority from We the People to the government for the collection of an unapportioned direct tax on the wages and salaries of the American People. It has been a maxim of English Law since the Magna Carta of 1215, that the People must consent to all taxation. “We are being taxed without our Consent!” (Ibid. p. 278.)
To read the above quotes in context, buy a copy of Constitutional Income: Do You Have Any? This is the only exhaustive primary-source analysis of the intent of the American People in supporting an income tax amendment to the Constitution. The book proves without a doubt that the purpose of the 16th Amendment was to bring tax relief to wage earners.
The gentleman from Tax Honesty Primer had already yielded the floor yesterday to the good gentlemen from Synaptic Sparks. Good day.
I came on this thread six days ago. Larry Williams CPA had milked it along for 950+ posts over 9 months. I told you two other readers of this thread: LarryBoy will go on for months more, defending his indefensible career.
Over 67 million non-filers don't believe the DC al Qaeda's terror tactics anymore. Larry and his ilk can hop around and scream at the top of their lungs (and quite childishly, you'll notice?) but Larry Williams CPA is shooting blanks. Every one of his assertions has been proven either insipid (immaterial) or illustrative of someone trying to "paper over" a bad spot in his career.
Don't misunderstand; I don't place all CPAs in the same dark cesspool, with all those 'tax preparers' out there. Some CPAs do accounting work for Nontaxpayers as well as Taxpayers. These are the rare honest CPAs. Or at any rate, the ones with more courage than the majority of CPAs, who remain complicit in Congress' crimes, just as most Gestapo agents remained complicit with Der Fuhrer's directives.
These tax industry people are not stupid; they are either ignorant of what Congress has done for 97 years, or -- like pirates -- more interested in money than in HOW they get it.
Terrorising Taxpayers is Job #1 for tax industry operatives. Most Taxpayers can't see the 'protection racket' nature of that business; they're too busy paying their bills to consider whether trusted members of the community are really parasites.
It's like all those "Render unto Caesar!" pastors; too afraid of public employees...of losing the IRS 501c3 designation for their corporate 'church'...to just speak truth to power, as Christ did.
Oh well. Pirates have children to feed just as law-abiding sailors do. But I should note that Larry Williams CPA is palpably self-destructing now; note his LOOOONG and rambling posts...then telling Dale Eastman about his shorter posts..."Too long. Didn't read!" I think a pirate in denial is a sad spectacle.
Larry Williams CPA has called me a loser, stupid, a doofus, a liar, and a tax protestor. Yet review his posts of weeks and months ago; most are scarcely on the 3rd grade (private school) level!
And speaking of delusional: after claiming "I know the law; I can tell you what the law says...Zuniga cannot!", I simply stated a FACT...that 13 employees of the IRS have been unable to answer a simple question for me in the 11 years I've been a (vocal!) law-abiding Nontaxpayer. So I have told them to go peddle their vinyl siding invoices somewhere else. They have, for 11 years now.
Then I have referred you to Texas Penal Code (32.48) and Texas Government Code (51.901c) sections that the IRS violates all the time, every day, against Texans but those Texans don't know it, so they don't go after the perps.
If a Texan happens to work for the IRS while committing a crime in Texas, that does NOT put that administrative employee above Texas law. That is middle-school civics, not even first-semester law. But Larry Williams CPA is aslo a self-proclaimed wizard in law as well. Mm hmmm...and he claims that *I* am the one with delusions of grandeur?
Oh well. Larry is simply evil.
I didn't originate the charge about the CPA profession being systemically corrupt. Mike Brewster did, in his excellent book...bottom link, below. Read it, and see 200+ pages documentation how deeply corrupt the accounting profession has become.
(But most of us already sensed this if we've ever had to pay a CPA's invoices, just to tell us we owe more, and more, and more....)
One in three working-age Americans is now a non-filer, yet the IRS recommends fewer than 300 people to DoJ annually, TOTAL, for white-collar crimes? Let's do the math...if we made it 670 suggested indictments per year...that's one one-thousandths of 1% rate of indictments of all these "criminals"? What is that...about 3,450 times worse indictment rate than the police force in Aguascalientes, Mexico?
If you're still terrorised by anything having to do with the IRS, then you must educate yourself. There is nothing wrong with the Tax Code; the corrupt Congress has made sure of that. So it's Taxpayers vs. Taxspenders, and the goal is your checkbook.
Education is the only way forward for a terror victim. I suggest:
- The Tax Honesty Primer (the first link below)
- Rep. Phil Hart's book (the second link)
- Dale's excellent 'Synaptic Sparks' site (the third link)
- Mike Brewster's book, "Unaccountable: How the Accounting Profession Forfeited a Public Trust" (the last link)
Heh...you haven't read what I wrote about the silly "taxes are voluntary" mantra, or the Flora case, did you, champ?
Nope; you spent 3500 words AGREEING with me! Good job, Larry; I can tell things are slow around your office.
Want to hear a hilarious example of Larry Williams CPA's counterpart at the IRS?
Scroll down to the video called "Stump that voice". Although Larry has defended them throughout his 1,003 post thread, these IRS operatives are almost 3rd grade material!
I'm almost finished (again!) with Larry Williams, CPA...
Sutherland's Rules of Statutory Construction is recognised as a core text on statutory construction by the American Bar Association. The ten-volume exhaustive resource provides all the acknowledged principles of American statutory interpretation.
In Sutherland 66:1 entitled "Strict Construction of Statutes Creating Tax Liability", see what we find? It's precisely in line with the century of Supreme Court rulings just noted:
"[I]t is a settled rule that tax laws are to be strictly construed against the state and in favor of the taxpayer. Where there is reasonable doubt of the meaning of a revenue statute, the doubt is resolved in favor of those taxed. Revenue laws are considered neither remedial statutes, nor laws founded upon any public policy, and are therefore not liberally construed."
The Internal Revenue Manual -- the IRS employee's operations manual -- indicates that Larry is talking through his terrorist hat, viz:
Examiners are responsible for determining the correct tax liability as prescribed by the Internal Revenue Code. It is imperative that examiners can identify the applicable law, correctly interpret its meaning in light of congressional intent, and, in a fair and impartial manner, correctly apply the law based on the facts and circumstances of the case.
"18.104.22.168 Researching Tax Law.
Conclusions reached by examiners must reflect correct application of the law, regulations, court cases, revenue rulings, etc. Examiners must correctly determine the meaning of statutory provisions and not adopt strained interpretation.
"22.214.171.124.1.1 Authority of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Internal Revenue Code is generally binding on all courts of law. The courts give great importance to the literal language of the Code.
"126.96.36.199.9.8 Importance of Court Decisions.
The Internal Revenue Service must follow Supreme Court decisions. For examiners, Supreme Court decisions have the same weight as the Code.
The critical tactical point is this: if we’re ever going to reverse the cancerous growth of the corrupt socialist State, every citizen should be willing to pay any amount due by law. If that amount is zero then I had to be willing to pay zero because only by starving corruption will we ever bring government back within the limits set by the Constitution.
Larry Williams CPA has made 500+ posts, and I have responded with 20 posts to counter his theories and terror threats. Weigh his 25-to-1 posts against mine and draw your conclusions.
"The tombstone of a civilisation can be laid at that point where truth is no longer defended because it cannot be known." I have not defended truth nearly so well as others might have; yet I've made the attempt.
Larry Williams CPA has twisted truth (in my view) to terrorise Taxpayers. I have nothing personal against him; in real life when not defending the indefensible, Larry is probably a stand-up fellow. I also have nothing against any profession; only against particular practicioners in a profession who render the thing unprofessional. They should be ashamed of themselves...but despite the shamefulness of defending Congress' high crimes...it PAYS well to keep the little Taxpayers in the "fair share" line.
The federal Leviathan didn't become this huge, corrupt monster by magic. Those corrupt Taxspenders needed Taxpayers to finance their crimes. But by God's grace, the internet is now allowing the common man (in America, China, Russia, almost anywhere on earth) to dig out the truth about what governments have been doing to them. And not only government, but pastors and professionals who aid and abet criminal activity by government. "Render unto Caesar", indeed.
Here in the 50 States of America, We The People are taking out the book of the law, turning to God for courage and diligence, and doing what we should have done over a century ago.
So. Let Larry Williams CPA blather on all he likes, but don't fear your government employees. The IRS still goes after four times more filers than non-filers, as Congress spends 450% more than it should legally be spending. The rape and pillage must end; there will be winners and losers.
We must pray that parasites not have their way with lazy Taxpayers; that fascism not destroy what the founding fathers built in the name of God.
Larry Williams CPA is lying again. Of course the IRS does have to show a law when it does its extortion thing; this isn’t China!
I’ll cite well-settled law presently, INCLUDING the Internal Revenue Manual.
Moreover: the Tax Code DOES make some people subject to an income tax; it DOES make some people into Taxpayers. You just read a long list! But I'm not on that list...I'm a law-abiding, happy Nontaxpayer among America’s estimated 67 million non-filers.
Black’s Law Dictionary defines the legal principle "inclusio unius est exclusio alterius" (to include one is to exclude all others) as dictating that:
“where law expressly describes a particular situation to which it shall apply, an irrefutable inference must be drawn that what is omitted or excluded was intended to be omitted or excluded.”
I just showed you many sections of the Code describing 'particular situations to which it shall apply' and since I can find nothing showing that my activities are likewise taxable, “an irrefutable inference must be drawn” that my income is not taxable.
The U.S. Supreme Court agrees, whether one of these rulings were superseded by Congress later on, the PRINCIPLE of legal interpretation remains well-settled law:
"Keeping in mind the well-settled rule that the citizen is exempt from taxation unless the same is imposed by clear and unequivocal language, and that where the construction of a tax law is doubtful, the doubt is to be resolved in favor of those upon whom the tax is sought to be laid.” Spreckels Sugar Refining Co. v. McClain, 192 U.S. 297 (1904)
“In the interpretation of statutes levying taxes it is the established rule not to extend their provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import of the language used, or to enlarge their operations so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out. In case of doubt they are construed most strongly against the government, and in favor of the citizen.” Gould v. Gould, 245 U.S. 151 (1917)
“In view of other settled rules of statutory construction, which teach that a law is presumed, in the absence of clear expression to the contrary, to operate prospectively; that, if doubt exists as to the construction of a taxing statute, the doubt should be resolved in favor of the taxpayer...” Hassett v. Welch., 303 US 303, 82 L Ed 858. (1938)
This well-settled law demands that in determining tax liability, nothing can be presumed taxable until finding in law what is SPECIFICALLY INDICATED to be so.
In other words, contrary to Larry’s strident assertions, if a tax agency employee wants you to pay something, THEY MUST SHOW YOU THE LAW REQUIRING IT.
You're cooked, LarryBoy CPA.
Since 'taxpayer' is defined in 7701(a)14 as one who is ‘subject to any internal revenue law’ the IRS terrorist must find a section or sections of the Tax Code making some people subject to it.
The Supreme Court ruled in Pollock that according to the Constitution, everybody can't be subject to it. A taxing statute must be specific; cannot be an "everybody just pay!!" scheme.
I am NOT a "tax protestor"; certain activities and categories of residency do have a liability to keep records, file forms, and pay, according to the Tax Code.
Dear reader, that's a critical point you’ll have to repeat as often as you discuss Tax Honesty with slave-hunter terrorists like LarryBoy here. Some people are INDEED made subject to the Tax Code, but not everyone is made subject.
Significantly, this means the Tax Code is constitutional, contrary to what some 'tax protestor' theories claim.
I found things that make a person into a ‘taxpayer’ as defined in the Internal Revenue Code; things that apparently create taxable income. In my 11 years digging around in the Tax Code, I found a number of such activities and domicile situations:
- If I live in D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, or the Northern Mariana Islands;
- If I'm involved in manufacture or sale of alcohol, tobacco, or firearms;
- If I'm an officer or employee of the federal government;
- If I operate a merchant vessel;
- If I'm a nonresident alien or a principal of a foreign corporation with income derived from sources within the United States;
- If I'm a resident alien lawfully admitted to a State of the Union, the District of Columbia, or an insular possession of the United States;
- If I entered a voluntary withholding agreement for government personnel withholding either as an ‘employee’ (3401(c)) or an ‘employer’ (3401(d)) (See 26 CFR §31.3402(p)-1);
- If I’ve ever been notified by the Treasury Financial Management Service that I was responsible for administration of government personnel withholding (26 U.S.C. § 3403), or have applied for and received a Form 8655 Reporting Agent Authorization certificate;
- If I'm an officer or employee of the Treasury or any bureau of the Dept of the Treasury subject to IRS authority related to submission of collected taxes delegated by Treasury Order 150-15;
- If I receive items of taxable income from foreign sources;
- If I receive foreign mineral income;
- If I receive income from foreign oil and gas extraction;
- If I receive income from a China Trade Act corporation;
- If I receive income from a foreign controlled corporation as fiduciary agent of the corporation;
- If I receive income from insurance of U.S. risks under 26 U.S.C. 953(b)(5);
- If I receive taxable items of income from operation of an agreement vessel under section 607 of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, as amended;
- If I receive items of income from a public works contract subject to Federal income and Social Security tax withholding;
- If I own stock in, do business with, or have anything else to do with a corporation in which the [Federal] United States of America owns stock. (See notes following 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Chapter 194, 40 Stat. 1015);
- If I receive wages, remuneration, or other compensation as an officer or employee of an oceangoing vessel construed as an American employer;
- If I receive gambling winnings from the District of Columbia or insular possessions of the United States;
- If I receive items of income from maritime (international) trade in alcohol, tobacco or firearms;
- If I receive items of income from production and/or distribution of alcohol, tobacco or firearms in the District of Columbia or insular possessions of the United States;
- If I receive any items of income from activities taking place within an “internal revenue district” as such districts have been established under authority of 26 USC 7621 (U.S. Customs ports);
- If I receive items of income from maritime (international) trade in opium, cocaine or other controlled substances.
Wow...so many taxable activities. But I haven't found my line of work in there anywhere. In fact, I haven't found the activities of the average American living and working in one of the 50 States.
I repeatedly demanded any citation of law from IRS and my representatives in Congress, that makes me a Taxpayer as defined in law, since so many other activities ARE treated specifically in the Code.
But year after year, I only got evasion from IRS employees. After the first few years, my terror victim conditioning finally wore off and I’ve remained a happy Nontaxpayer ever since.
I told Larry I was done with him, but he has a way...like a used-car salesman! -- of staying on a person, like...well, like a leech...until they give in and just have to respond again...and again...and again.
1) His moral equivalence attempt fell flat; I'm not defending fraudulent physics; he's defending the scam by Congress pulled in 1913, described in detail in this book:
2) He claims "I know what the law says, and Zuniga doesn't! Listen to me!!" and I said before, methinks the lady protesteth too much. I asked these IRS employees what the law says:
- Michael Thomas (IRS Austin)
- Nancy Sessions (IRS Austin)
- Beverly Coogan (IRS San Antonio)
- Aaron Hamor (IRS San Antonio)
- R.A. Mitchell (IRS Dallas)
- C. Sherwood (IRS Dallas)
- Grace Metro (IRS Dallas)
- Debra K. Hurst (IRS Dallas)
- Dennis Parizek (IRS Ogden)
- Deborah Egan (IRS Ogden)
- Susan Meredith (IRS Fresno)
- Teresa Webb (IRS Memphis)
- Stephanie Borop (IRS Nashville)
- Queen Vaughn (IRS Nashville)
They said one of three things: "We have not yet completed our research" or "We have sent your inquiry to the office listed below" or "we refuse to answer your request". Sounds like LarryBoy, CPA knows a lot more than them...he should apply to be the next IRS Commish.
3) LarryBoy CPA goes on a long rant about my citing a US Supreme Court ruling (Gould v. Gould, 1917) and asserting that it had been overruled. That's a point I do not concede (I haven't checked yet) but which is immaterial for the contextual purpose.
Anyone seeing that citation in the Tax Honesty Primer sees that I use that ruling, with two others from the Supreme Court...and with relevant cites from Black's Law Dictionary, Sutherland's Rules of Statutory Construction, and the Internal Revenue Manual...to show the century-long well-settled law on a PRINCIPLE of tax law INTERPRETATION, not the particulars of a case! But I think the point is lost on Larry Einstein, CPA.
4) Larry CPA knows what the Tax Code says...fine; so did Joe Banister, CPA. After about a decade working as an IRS CID agent, Joe learned the truth about Congress' IRS scam, and was forced out of that agency. The only official Historian of the Internal Revenue Serive in that agency's history, testified before a committee of Congress years ago, that the agency was fully corrupt; destroyed records, refused to produce documents, etc. So she was fired, and the IRS has never had another historian. No mystery there at all.
So I don't wonder why all those IRS employees would never answer my simple questions. I also don't wonder which side of the fence Larry CPA is on; he likes his CPA standing in the community and his CPA income. No problem, and he'll answer for it one day before the tribunal that counts most of all: the tribunal of Heaven.
Okay Larry (and Dan Evans, and the rest of the CPA team that gave Larry an IQ transplant...his posts after 8 months suddenly show a quantum change in style, IQ, everything! Hey...magic!) you boys have fun reaching that 1,000-post mark on a thread whose subject I actually AGREE with you about! (That Pete Hendrickson was running a very ill-advised enterprise at the very least.)
In one weekend, I exposed Larry Williams CPA as a fraud; a 3rd-grade-level "blah, blah, blah" debater whose playground-bully tactics stretched this thread for nine months and 970 posts! He is a typical protection-racket careerist crook, but now Larry is done. Really, truly done.
Oh, he will continue his puerile taunts; they're all he has left to convince himself that his 'profession' is not a protection racket. In his heart, he knows better; that's why he's gone on for nine months like that; and that's why truth made a fool of him in two days.
Don't remain in Congress' fog of ignorance about the 97-year-old IRS check-skimming racket. Visit the Tax Honesty Primer; it's free.
Buy a single-volume Tax Code for $108 and a copy of Phil Hart's book for $20. Once you read former Rep. Hart's book, you'll never listen to the empty taunts of slave-hunters like Larry Williams again. You'll shun them for the wicked parasites they are.
I assure you; when you're just 1/3 into Phil Hart's book, you'll be so furious at the corruption in Congress that you'll finally be able to get over your abject terror of the IRS (which is what scammers like Larry use to keep you in line). Then you can go on the offensive against the criminals in Congress; believe it or not, this is NOT about the IRS, it's about the crooks who demand they "just get the money!!"- Congress.
You can join AmericaAgain! and begin to oversee every act by your members of Congress, and bring them to justice in your State Criminal Court. You can help draft, refine, and push through the many short, simple reform laws that AmericaAgain! will be sponsoring. And you can help take Tax Honesty to scale, to cut the limitless flow of cash to Congress, currently 400% ;arger that what's required to fund the LAWFUL powers enumerated to federal government.
Further Reading & the FairyTax Trojan Horse
Remember what the income tax war is about: MONEY and liberty.
Fraudsters in Congress have had the 'FairyTax' scam waiting in the wings for over a decade. It's potentially a worse scam than the one we're finally busting; America would leap from the frying pan into the fire, after the lure of "getting rid of the IRS". Every proposal by a politician is a different plan for the same target: your checkbook.
Want to play offense as well as defense? Join AmericaAgain!
Want to remediate your deficient education? Besides the single-volume Thomson- Reuters edition of the Tax Code, and Phil Hart's book...
...I also suggest the following titles in American history, so you'll realise how long this battle for your money has been raging. The generation of Marx, Darwin, and Lincoln was America's watershed into tyranny. What most Americans think began in 1913, was brewing in the dens, offices, and clubs of powerful men for 80 years before Wilson's corrupt administration and the gangsters from Jekyll Island.
American history is fascinating. Learn its lessons, and you'll stop being condemned to repeat them.

Larry Williams doesn't get the humor inherent in his puerile retorts and repeated chain-rattling about the beknighted Pete Hendrickson. This is the slave-hunter's first tactic: scare the slaves back into line! I stated yesterday that Mr. Hendrickson's selling books teach people to continue self-assessing and filing as Taxpayers, yet claiming IRS refunds is a very foolish thing to do; akin to going back into the dark alley where you get mugged every payday, to demand a refund!
But you do see, don't you, that old Larry is done; trussed up in a ball. The slave-hunter is now sending scads of people the the Tax Honesty Primer site; excellent!
- Tell the truth
- Obey the law
- Make your employees do the same
- Never fear bluffing slave-hunters
Okay; one weekend. That's all I will waste on Larry Boy. He's done.
Larry Williams has defended Congress' IRS scam on this thread for hundreds of posts, over many months. I have exposed him and trussed him up in one weekend; I do not intend to waste more time with him. You have what you need to disabuse yourself of the Larry Williamses of America; now perform due diligence.
Upton Sinclair said "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." Your CPA may refuse to discuss Tax Honesty, threatening "I'll see you in prison!". He doesn't want his professional career exposed as corrupt; THAT is why Larry has fought so long here...this is about defending himself against the reality that his life's career is illegitimate and indeed a protection racket for state-sponsored terrorism overseen by a palpably corrupt Congress.
What do you expect him to say? He must fight on, a peripatetic slave-hunter against history's flow. But in the Taxpayers' "us versus them" war over Congress' IRS check-skimming scam, there are MANY more players than merely the CPA industry; the defenders of "pay your taxes" are legion!
Congress' IRS scam is almost impossible to expose because it feeds a massive parasite population that you've likely never considered.
Most of us produce something of use to others, or we fix things, or grow things, or sell useful stuff. But today, there are literally tens of millions of parasite-sector Americans:
- corrupt politicians including federal judges
- their bloated staffs and other bureaucrats
- thousands of gov't contractors employing tens of millions of Americans
- IRS employees
- large accounting firms and individual accountants
- tax law firms and their employees
- tax software companies
- tax training (seminar & publishing) companies
- tax preparation services
- university endowments in tax law & accounting
- tax-deferred investment groups
- tax-shelter mutual funds
- the tax shelter real estate sector
- equipment, vehicle, and aircraft leasing companies
- manufacturers and vendors of all depreciable equipment
- IRS 'workout' services that advertise "we're former IRS agents"
...and the two really big Kahunas:
- America's mortgage industry
- America's non-profit industry, religious (pastors, church elders) and secular
Had you ever seen the connection to all those industries? Not likely. Now you know why you hear "pay your taxes" and "render unto Caesar" from counselors who've enjoyed great public trust and respect. If they run from Tax Honesty, you'll know they don't deserve that trust and respect. They've chosen a parasitic life.
If you actually produce, fix, or grow something for a living, you owe it to your progeny -- and to liberty -- to perform due diligence. And don't expect one bit of help from anyone in the parasite sector industries listed above. Only a few practicioners in those industries are honest about Tax Honesty; most of them play the part of the slave-hunter, even out of ignorance.
Besides being on the wrong side of the law, Larry Williams CPA is also on the wrong side of an ethical Rubicon in American history. Let me illustrate.
Imagine that your mother was dragged here in chains from Africa; that you were born on a plantation in 1799; that you escaped, and that a fellow with the moral compass of Larry Williams (a paid slave-hunter) caught up with you.
Now if you read the Tax Honesty Primer you will see why there are 67 million non-filers in America; the law DOES establish a duty to file and pay taxes for dozens of lines of work...but for most of us, IT DOES NOT. So the IRS captures eight filers for every non-filer; yet there are only twice as many filers as non-filers. So apparently a filer is 4 times more likely to be chased by the IRS than a non-filer, all else being equal. The slave-hunters go after filers, in onther words; they want you back on the plantation.
Although I find the law to be clearly on the side of Tax Honesty, let's set aside the law for a moment, and consider the ethical implication of the favorite CPA taunt to law-abiding Nontaxpayers: "Judges will rule against you!"
For two reasons, that is an immoral assertion:
1) The IRS is statistically 4 times more likely to pursue a filer than a non-filer, so the assertion is mendacious;
2) The slave-hunter (CPA) knows that even if the law was on his side, allowing him to return the slave to the plantation using threats of violence and prison (as slave hunters always did, and do)...the slave-hunter's career is still a monstrous activity.
The tide of history caught up with chattel slavery, as it caught up with the monstrous judges in Hitler's Third Reich, who used to rule that a runaway Jew was in the wrong, and had to be returned, by law, to the concentration camp.
Wickedness cannot stand forever; truth will out. In the matter of Congress' IRS scam; the largest, longest-running financial scam in modern history -- 67 million of us are off the plantation, and we do not intend to go back. In fact, we've done our homework, and the law is even on OUR side!
Thus, before you believe the empty taunts of the slave-hunter CPA, note that the chains in his hand are shaking. He knows that his days are numbered, and that he is on the side of wickedness, not law. The more and louder he protests, the more you should search the law, and look to the open road in front of you.
Truth CAN be known; but the first step you take must be spiritual, not intellectual. You must decide whether this time, America will allow slavery to continue, despite the clear lessons of history, and the clear words of the law.
In my home and 67 million others, freedom has prevailed.
I've finished with Larry. Read his months of drivel here, compared against the facts and law found in the Tax Honesty Primer, and draw your own conclusions.
When I say "facts and law", I MEAN the facts and law presented on the Tax Honesty Primer. Larry's career depends on you believing his threats (notice the veiled threats, "Hendrickson could be YOOOOU!!") whereas I gain nothing from the Tax Honesty Primer. Nor do I tell anyone what to do, other than see what a corrupt pit of snakes the CPA industry is.
Suggesting that I don't know what I'm talking about, has the salutary effect of sending people to the Tax Honesty Primer, to see what I'm talking about! Larry is only harming himself by acting precisely as childish as I accused him of. People can do their own research and draw their own conclusions.
Peter Hendrickson was the IRS trophy for this Tax Terror Season. Congress makes them dig up about one or two a year: Leona Helmsley, Willie Nelson, Wesley Snipes, or some fellow holed up in an underground compound. It always has to be someone that the average juror would simply never associate with: applying for a multi-million-dollar REFUND? No way will the average envious person let that defendant go.
As I said, Pete Hendrickson seems foolish, to tell people that for $20 he'll take you back into the dark alley where you get beat up every payday so they can get a refund from the thugs! Yet the fact remains: IRS indicts EIGHT TIMES MORE FILERS every year than non-filers, yet filers (115 million) only outnumber non-filers (67 million) about two-to-one.
Thus, regardless whatever self-serving terror threats Larry might make on these threads, he is a CPA; his career is tied to IRS' success at keeping you terrorised enough to run to him for 'protection'. Not only are the statistics terribly against his 'profession' now, but I wouldn't be too proud of being part of a protection racket. It's immoral.
- Tell the truth
- Obey the law
- Make your federal employees do the same
- Don't fear domestic terrorists, even if they're your public employees...or CPAs
Well, no surprise THERE. I just backtracked a few months(!!) on this thread, to learn that Larry Williams is a CPA.
If Tax Honesty goes to scale, it will bust Congress' IRS scam, and Larry's career is over. Obviously, he must thrash in these waters for as many months as he can, to beat back "johnthetaxist", thus retaining the public perception of 'tax professionals' as really trying to 'help you', rather than hold you down while IRS does bad things to you.
Most people already see through the accounting 'profession' as those guys with the green visors who cook books for a living. But the whole tax industry (including tax attorneys) are in the muck in most people's eyes.
As far back as Shakespeare's Dick the Butcher, whose famous line was, "first thing let's do, let's kill all the lawyers!" -- the legal 'profession' is hardly the public's idea of moral probity. To learn to what depths the accountants have sunken to, read Mike Bewster's book, "Unaccountable: How the Accounting Profession Forfeited a Public Trust".
Exhibit A: Larry Boy here, slogging his way to the end of this 2010 Tax Terror Season against the benighted "johnthetaxist".
The corrupted, self-deceived mind bent on parasitism is either truly pathetic, or truly chilling; but you needn't remain a victim. Take up and read. I do recommend Brewster's expose on the accounting 'profession'.
Larry Williams is conducting himself like a petulant child in a kindergarten schoolyard; which tells you something.
One thing that's obvious: he hasn't read the Tax Honesty Primer.
Had he done so, he'd be very quiet, for he'd realise that the Tax Honesty Primer is an engineer's compendium of 11 years' due diligence in:
-the Internal Revenue Code
-the Internal Revenue Manual (IRS employee manual)
-a century of standing US Supreme Court rulings
-applicable section of Black's Law Dictionary
-applicable section of Sutherland's Rules of Statutory Construction
-applicable sections of TX Penal Code RE common IRS frauds vs Texans*
-applicable sections of TX Govt Code RE common IRS fraud in court records
-listing resources for further due diligence by Taxpayers seeking the truth
The best resource is the single-volume Tax Code. The Tax Honesty Primer offers a link to Thomson/Reuters' $108 Code so that Taxpayers may disabuse themselves of scandalous frauds like Larry, who want them to remain ignorant terror victims of a huge parasite segment of America.
The second best resource on the Tax Honesty Primer is former Idaho Rep. Phil Hart's book of investigative journalism, with facsimile copies of actual newspaper headlines, congressional memoranda and floor debates from the Congressional Record, ca. 1909-1913, that exposes exactly how Congress built the IRS scam.
The Tax Honesty Primer gives a link to that $20 book, also. Read it, and you'll be even more furious at the corrupt Congress than you are already.
Most likely, Larry is employed in the tax industry or another segment of the parasitic population that feeds off of tax revenues directly or indirectly. These people cannot compete in the marketplace, so they ride the back of productive hosts.
They'll go to any length to browbeat or chide taxpayers into staying in line. What they will NOT do is provide truthful or logical support for their position in defense of Congress' multi-trillion-dollar check-skimming scam.
Parasites like Larry must keep Taxpayers in terror and in line, so as to continue living off the productive work of others, while maintaining the preposterous air of superiority shared by the playground bully and the Colombian drug lord.
Go back and review just a few dozen of Larry's posts on this thread. He exposes himself as precisely that sort of shameless, mendacious hustler of the kindergarten playground. His churlish jabs at others on this thread emote a line from Hamlet,
"Methinks the gentleman doth protest too much."
The tombstone of a civilisation can be laid at that point where truth is no longer defended, because it cannot be known. But you see, truth CAN be known; in the matter of Congress' IRS scam, the tide of history is catching up with those crooks. As of 2005, by a former IRS spokesperson's estimate, there were already an estimated 67 million
non-filers; that number is much higher today. You will NOT hear this in the mainstream media, or from your complicit parasite (tax preparer, CPA, pastor, investment counselor, etc).
Tell the truth, obey the law, and make your federal employees do the same. And by all means, don't fear petty terrorists posing as your employees, or trolling internet forums kicking sand in your face to keep you in the "fair share" line.
If you would know the truth about just how corrupt the US Congress really is, EDUCATE YOURSELF. The Tax Honesty Primer is free, and doesn't accept donations.
*Joseph Stack killed himself day before yesterday, plowing his light aircraft into the side of the IRS building in Austin. Mr. Stack apparently didn't bother to even read the Tax Code; he just believed the terrorist line of the tax industry, that seeks to keep 115 million filers in "the fair share line".
This final, desperate act against the most feared agency in America does not begin to illustrate the true terror that Congress has instillied in its hosts, the American taxpayers. No; to grasp the breadth and width of Congress' moral turpitude, one would have to survey the marriages ruined, the businesses sundered, the sleepless nights spent by MILLIONS of minions in the IRS "fair share line".
The terror operatives at IRS are not the real kingpins; only the gunmen and the bag-men for the deeply corrupt, feckless U.S. Congress, whose IRS check-skimming scam is half of the longest-running, largest financial crime in human history. (The other half is Congress' counterfeiting concession granted to a private banking cartel in clear violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution).
Mike Church, an erudite authority on America's founding era and documents, yet presents history in an entertaining style.
He'd be a superb guest on the show, Judge.
New Hampshire is a gorgeous place, filled with REAL Americans who desire liberty or death. That's all good.
What is NOT good is repeating historical folly; that's what single-state secession is. Like nullification, this goes against the principle that ALL of us citizens are the apex sovereigns over the Constitution; the federal government is our creature, not master.
When the sovereigns tuck tail and run, the creature-cum-master has an easy time going after the fleeing target. Human nature being what it is, the people of other states who are 'stuck in America' will only be envious. New Hampshire will decline in popularity, and the more socialist citizens in all the other states will turn on the 'free' ones.
I'm a proud, unreconstructed Texan. Our state was a republic once, and we are larger than most of the nations of the world. Yet I think even Texas secession is a fool's errand. The much better solution to this constitutional crisis (now almost 150 years old) is to turn our domestic enemy's divide-and-conquer tactic right back on them.
By 'them', I mean those who have controlled Congress from behind the scenes for 175 years, always by dividing the American people against one another. Now it's time to use the same shrewd tactic to give teeth to the 9th and 10th Amendments, at last:
The constitutional principle is James Madison's; see his 'Report on the Virginia Resolutions'. The basic tactical principle (ironically) is Alexander Hamilton's; see his Federalist #28, about the combined power of the People and the States vs. our federal creature when it slips its leash.
It's not like New Hampshire folks to cut and run from any threat; nor is it like a Texan, at all. Yet folks from my state and yours still want to let them divide us and conquer us even more. The clear lesson of history (military tactics, especially) is that when you can divide the enemy's forces and especially turn the parts against one another, you make great gains at no cost to yourself.
It's time to turn those tables. It's time for AmericaAgain!
[Incidentally, this is not a spam of the Free State Project thread; it is a sincere assessment of historical folly being repeated. If your friend is rushing headlong with his headlights off, towards a bridge that is out...you will say something. Nothing personal at all.]
Since 1909, Congress has run a far larger racketeering scam than just its socialism Ponzi scheme. See just exactly who in Congress did it, and who pulled their strings from among America's wealthiest families, and how they did it, in this superb investigative journalist's book written by Phil Hart, a professional engineer and former member of the Idaho House of Representatives:
To learn how 67 million non-filers have walked away from Congress' fair-share (of gang-rape) line, read the Tax Honesty Primer:
It's time to start just saying "NO!" to lying, thieveing scoundrels whose strings are pulled by billionaires -- all to make you work for THEM. Tax Honesty is just the first step; like getting our criminal teenager off of drugs. Next, we need to let him serve some time in prison for all his crimes; that's called AmericaAgain! and it's the solution that the Tea Party movement has been screaming for.
It's time to end politics, and begin informed self-government, as our founders intended us to do. Peacefully, lawfully, and powerfully: tell the liars to their faces, they've been caught in their lies. Tell the criminals that they are busted; the US Congress was never intended as a galactic ATM machine!
The jig is up. Target acquired...firing solution entered...
The federal government currently spends more than FOUR TIMES what it should be receiving, to fund the enumerated powers in Art I, Sec 8 of the Constitution. For every legal power it exercises, it's exercising FOUR illegal ones.
Nothing personal, Don. But your plan is even worse than the "revenue neutral" FairyTax plan, that would let the criminally insane teenager keep the red Ferrari, the no-limit credit cards, and the $1,500-per-week allowance while he beats you every night, and rapes the neighbor's daughter too.
If we want to bring the D.C. Leviathan back to its lawful powers and out of our lives like every other fascist or socialist system in history...then we have to TURN OFF the spigot. That is the only rational way forward, if America is to ever recover. Either the Supreme Law actually MEANS something, or the criminal cartel will only grow worse every year.
Along with an estimated 67 million other non-filers, for the past 11 years my family has enjoyed 'household secession' from Congress' crime spree. For us (and many others that we know), April 15th is just another day on the calendar. And no, we don't pray to the Tax Fairy to deliver us; we know the FairyTax plan is a Trojan horse meant to seal our fate forever in socialism.
At the Tax Honesty Primer website, see sections of the Texas Penal Code and Texas Government Code that IRS employees in Texas violate hundreds of times per day. Learn why IRS has never touched me or my family's bank accounts: I'm law-abiding, they're not, and they know that I know the difference.
Besides buying a single-volume Tax Code, and highlighting it as shown here:
I also highly recommend that you read the investigative survey of the period 1909-1913, written by former Idaho Rep. Phil Hart, who names the names of America's wealthiest families and their puppets in Congress at the time that the largest financial fraud in human history was pulled on the American people:
If you buy that $20 book and read it, you'll be fuming at Congress, I promise. But it's just not enough to get angry; not enough to "throw the bums out" because that's like setting Bernie Madoff free to go at it again. Crime in federal government must not pay in America. Not any more.
AmericaAgain! has the goods on these criminals, and we will return to James Madison's original instructions about how to stop them. We want our republic back, and our rule of law. As God is witness, the crime cartels have had their century with this republic; it's time for AmericaAgain!
Texas is the freest, by a wide margin, all things considered. I make the case for this in the final third of the Tax Honesty Primer; the Texas Penal Code (32.48) and Texas Government Code (51.901c) make a crime out of most of the documents sent to Texans by IRS offices in Texas.
Thus, as one of the estimated 67 million non-filers (a law-abiding Nontaxpayer) for the past 11 years, it is as though my household seceded from the D.C. al Qaeda's check-skimming operation, 11 years ago.
Moreover: Texas has no state income tax.
Also, Texas is a right-to-work state (no union thuggery or corruption).
Texas also is a right-to-carry state; Texans are free to carry a concealed pistol in the truck or car...or to have rifles, pistols or shotguns as necessary for home defense, and has benefit of the doubt in case a thug breaks in to harm his/her family or steal possessions.
There are pockets of bureaucratic armageddon, of course. You don't want to live in Austin or Travis County. It's liberal (old hippies and sexual deviants of all ages) and it's a regulatory morass (government bureaucrats in everything).
Like most big cities on earth, Texas' big cities are a tough place to live if you like liberty. But once away from major metro areas, Texas can't be beat. It's larger than most European countries, so there's still room to roam when you need it.
Like a whole 'nother country.
You mean like the Bolshoi Ballet? An actual NATIONAL ballet? Sounds delightful.

John Linder has tried to push the FairyTax Trojan horse into America's camp for 11 years, always failing. For the (17) enumerated (i.e. lawful) powers that we granted to federal government in the Constitution, Congress should receive $450-700 billion annually (depending on whose vision of a world military you prefer). Yet it's shoveling in almost FOUR TRILLION per year.
Do the math: the federal government is engaging in four times as many illegal acts and projects, as legal ones. The corrupting equivalent of 11,000 major drug cartels operating inside the DC beltway.
Neal Boortz, an avowed atheist, is a fitting spokesman for Congress' Trojan horse, the 'FairyTax'; the Tea Party movement seems enthralled with the idea of "getting rid of the IRS"...not realizing that every retailer in America will BECOME the IRS under this evil plan. European history is rife with historical lessons about value-added- and national sales taxes. But we have even BETTER historical examples: King George III was exacting a national sales tax on us when we waged our War for Independence.
And that tax was nothing like the 30-45% tax that the Tax Fairy will be dropping on us all, if the FairyTax ever sees the light of day.
The Tax Fairy must die.
No member of Congress, as corrupt as it has been for 150+ years, can ever change history's trajectory now. It is up to the States and the People, giving real teeth to the 9th and 10th Amendments for the first time in 220 years. No matter how great a statesman (witness Ron Paul's uphill battle in the snake-pit for decades), dropping fresh faces into a sea of sh!7 won't end the corruption.
Better to split them up, bring them home, and force them to face civil and criminal charges under many STATE statutes that also happen to reflect their violations of the U.S. Constitution. That's the AmericaAgain! Indictment Engine(tm) -- just one third of the total tactical plan coming to YOUR home, when you join AmericaAgain!
Bob, that is a difference without a distinction. Congress first committed and then has acquiesced in further commission of, high crimes under color of law for 97 years under the illegal 'Federal Reserve Act'.
The fact that a crime continues for 97 years, for a total heist well over 100 trillion dollars, does not make it any less a high crime today than when it was first committed. We The People (or we the States, however you'd like to frame the parties to the Constitution, the supreme LAW) only gave CONGRESS power to "coin money", and only gave to Congress the power to COIN money. Anything else is illegal.
Thus, every member of Congress today -- including those who call for auditing the Fed, tantamount to auditing Colombia's Medellin Cartel -- is complicit; is acquiescing in commission of the most massive financial crime in history. Every member of Congress today should have to answer for acquiescing as Congress continues to renew the counterfeiting concession to a cartel of private banks.
"We" did not "decide to ignore the warnings of the founders and print paper money anyway". Members of Congress, sworn to support the Constitution, have violated the highest law that can be violated in America. They are the moral equivalent of drug dealers, cutting ILLEGAL deals.
You make the preposterous assertion that the criminal Congress "found it easier to consolidate the power of the people within a federally-chartered corporation". No, sir; the law does not allow Congress to violate it, even to grant illegal concessions to state- or federally-chartered corporations...nor to individuals, partnerships, or the man in the moon.
I don't give a frog's quivering thigh WHO they grant illegal concessions to, or how long they have continued a racketeering scheme -- there is no statute of limitations on federal crimes (that have state equivalents, too), and each member of Congress that refuses to stop this RICO scam, is criminally indictable in his/her own state, under those state statutes. When entrusted with the currency, every member of Congress has a duty not to acquiesce in counterfeiting crimes instead, or to act dumb about it. Ignorance of the Constitution is no excuse for a member of Congress.
Congress will regulate and tax EVERYTHING that it can; it will bring in all the trillions it can, and grease palms in your school district, city, county, and state. As Judge Napolitano has taught for many years: our government is corrupt and lawless. Now We the People have a way to fight back lawfully, peacefully, and POWERFULLY...
Yes, Larry; it's appropriate that Congress' "IRS trophy" for this Tax Terror Season should be sentenced on what you CPAs call "tax day".
It's also appropriate (since your 'profession' is charged with holding the Taxpayer down while the IRS does wicked things to them) that you should gloat about Mr. Henderson's sentencing.
The fact is, most Americans are ignorant of the Congress' 97-year-old tax terrorism racket. You can learn exactly how Congress pulled this heist in 1913, by reading former Idaho Rep. Phil Hart's book. Mr. Hart is a registered professional engineer, and an honest man.
In that little $20 book, now in its 3rd edition, the reader will see in great detail (with facsimile copies of primary sources, and copious additional documentation of secondary sources) exacxtly how the corrupt Congress did the dirty, ca. 1909-1913.
If you would like further corroboration that Congress is still committing high crimes with its IRS scam, read my Tax Honesty Primer.
Like Phil Hart, I'm also a registered professional engineer. Many of us engineers are prone to exhaustive forensic research when something is of great importance or interest. The professional engineers' Code of Ethics demands moral probity; apparently the CPA 'profession' does not. In any case, you see the problem for a CPA career, if Tax Honesty frees the citizen from Congress' wicked "fair share line".
Read Mike Brewster's excellent expose of Larry's profession, in his book: "Unaccountable: How the Accounting Profession Forfeited a Public Trust".
But do you want to move from playing defense against criminals in D.C.; to start playing OFFENSE as is our duty to enforce the Constitution? If so, join AmericaAgain!
Let's begin putting the black hats on the crooks, instead of putting them on Taxpayers who are trying to make ends meet while Congress lives like crowned heads of Europe and rapes them raw.
Stop being cowed by criminals in Congress who make Bernie Madoff look like Mother Teresa. Nor should you be terrorised by parasites who on these threads exhibit a dogged determination to keep you in fear yet are unable to back up their claims. All they can do is keep repeating: "See? One of you has been convicted and will soon be sentenced, citizen!! Beware; this could be YOU!!" This is plain terrorism, in defense of one's 'professional' career income.
Congress always expects IRS to put at least one high-profile Tax Honesty trophy on the hood of their truck to drive it around town during Tax Terror Season. Keep the citizens afraid: "This could be YOU!"
But there exist (at least) four problems for Congress' 97-year-old racket, and the huge parasite tax industry that keeps it rolling:
1) the internet is increasingly informing citizens of the provenance, nature, and depth of the Congress' financial crime; those who learn the facts, are walking away;
2) of the estimated 67 million non-filers, fewer than 100 are convicted each year. Either the parasitic tax industry is lying through their teeth...or the U.S. Dept of Justice has less than 1% as much success at convicting criminals as the police in Tijuana, Mexico;
3) the IRS recommends about 800% more filers than non-filers for indictment each year; yet there are about 115 million filer and 67 million non-filers...do the math...filers are four times more statistically likely to be indicted by the IRS than non-filers.
4) Congress' check-skimming scam is now exposed, the internet has a long memory, and the Tax Code is perfectly good law. Thus, We The People can obey the Tax Code and force the IRS to obey it, also. Not good for Congress' scam, I assure you; nor is it good news for the terrorist, parasitic, fraudulent* tax industry.
Any honest CPA can still find gainful employment; some of them do accounting for their Nontaxpayer clients as well as Taxpayers. But they are a tiny minority in the 'profession', and not generally well-liked by the more rapacious, less ethical types.
Tough toenails. This is war for America's future, and with the grace of God, We The People mean to WIN it. We think that 150 years is too long to be passive captives of a government now more corrupt than any other on earth in terms of financial loss, or loss of lives worldwide...and as captives of 'professions' that do absolutely nothing productive for a living.
Q: "If the constitution is not enforced then what remedy is there?"
A: Begin to ENFORCE it, for goodness' sakes.
No, not through single-state nullification; that's an invitation to state or regional atomization of the republic, inviting a draconian, tyrannical federal reaction with no nationwide counterthreat by We The People.
And certainly not Bob Schulz's "petition for redress of grievances". We already have years of petitions, demonstrations, and remonstrances to absolutely no effect. Those who are of the criminal mind in Congress have absolutely no motivation to reform their criminal habits.
And they are very OLD habits, I might add; the Congress' IRS check-skimming scam and its evil twin, granting a counterfeiting concession to a private banking cartel (the Fed) -- that's a 97 YEAR OLD racketeering scandal. The best that the real 'fighters' in Congress can do? Calling for an AUDIT of the scams?
This is like calling for an audit of the Colombian Medellin Cartel. Please, spare me; this is NOT what Madison and Jefferson meant, when they said that We The People, through our sovereign States, had the DUTY to "judge of these infractions, and apply remedies"!
AmericaAgain! is the answer. It is multi-pronged, tactical enforcement of the 9th and 10th Amendments, by splitting up Congress, bringing the individual operatives home to face STATE CRIMINAL STATUTES that happen to fit the crimes that Congress has collectively committed for a century.
We The People, through our State Courts (not on our own as vigilantes) assure that the rule of law applies to those feckless perverts in Congress, just as laws apply to us. We make sure that they get something between what Martha Stewart received at Congress' hands...and maybe some of them get a sentence as tough as Bernie Madoff received, for they are MUCH worse criminals, in every way.
And then, we draft, refine, and force through OUR reform legislation -- short (no law being more than 2-10 pages) and easily understood by the people.
We also take Tax Honesty to scale -- from the present estimated 67 million non-filers, to perhaps twice as many; and we specifically keep the 'FairTax' "revenue neutral" Trojan horse out of our camp. The powers enumerated to federal government don;t even total $800 billion per year...yet the Taxspenders are skimming $3.7 TRILLION a year off the Taxpayers!!?
This isn't rocket science. It's like asking "How can I get my 19-year-old to stop being such a spoiled brat? He beats me almost every day; he leaves his dirty clothes all over the house; he refuses to wipe himself after going potty. We gave him a new Ferrari, two unlimited credit cards, and an average of $1200 cash every Friday! What more can we do to enforce the law in our home??"
AmericaAgain! is being designed as a private, perennial charitable trust with a permanent campus meant to last as long as the Constitution does. We're planning to teach citizens to ENFORCE their Constitution for the rest of American history.
We intend to see corrupt gangsters in Congress, thrown in their State Penitentiary and stripped of family assets, just as Madoff was last year; their crimes are FAR worse. They have for too long danced to the tune of equally corrupt major industries, who have been writing their "laws" for a century. Now WE will write the laws, and we'll make them short so they'll actually READ them before voting on them!
THAT is the AmericaAgain! strategic plan. Law enforcement has never been an easy field, yet no law is more in need of long-overdue enforcement than our Supreme Law. So join us, and roll up your sleeves.
Oh...and while you're at it...vote for Judge Napolitano to become the AmericaAgain! Chief Counsel. There is no individual whose background and demeanor better suits him for this task: to forge American history in our day, and make a new way of life for citizens: the end of politics, and the beginning of informed self-government.
Auditing a multi-trillion-dollar counterfeiting consortium? That's like auditing the mafia; like auditing a Mexican drug cartel. We need to split Congress up, bring them home, and try them under their STATE criminal laws. AmericaAgain! is on the way to doing this, in every state. Time for hardball, form now on. www.myamericaagain.org
