FREE CHUCK CONCES
To: The Lawman
Chuck Conces had a meeting scheduled for Thursday morning at the U.S. Marshal’s office in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The session was ordered by U.S. District Judge Gordon J. Quist, and was to take place with a couple of U.S. attorneys. All of this was apparently being done under FRCP 26, for discovery. Conces was notified by mail on Monday of that week. I accompanied Chuck along with another friend that also went as a witness. When we arrived the marshals informed us that no witnesses would be allowed in the session. Most of the marshal’s were courteous (just following orders) and one in particular was kind enough to give us an occasional update on Chuck’s status. Don’t lose sight of the fact that many of these ordinary government employees are not too happy with the current state of affairs either.
I would like to point out that the attorney’s for the government have consistently refused to answer Mr. Conces’ questions or provide any documentation regarding their authorities for filing the their civil lawsuit in the first place. Conces has been denied his right to discovery under FRCP 26. Although Conces has several times requested/demanded a copy of the documentation necessary per IRC 7401 and allegedly used to begin the civil lawsuit, he has received nothing. U. S. Attorney Michael Rahm (not sure of the spelling) lied in the government’s complaint against Conces by stating that he had obtained authorization to bring the civil suit. There is no delegation order to commence the government’s lawsuit against Conces. I’ll tell ya folks that’s actually the end of it all right there. Fraud… fraud, and more fraud.
IRC Sec.7401; AUTHORIZATION. “No civil action for the collection or recovery of taxes, or of any fine, penalty or forfeiture, shall be commenced unless the secretary (of the Treasury) authorizes the proceedings and the attorney General or his delegate directs that the action be commenced”
The Supreme Court rulings in: Nudd V. Burrows, 91 U.S. 426. “Fraud destroys the validity of everything in to which it enters.”
U.S. V. Throckmorton, 98 U.S. 61. “Fraud vitiates the most solemn contracts, documents, and even judgments.”
Miranda, 384 US 436, at 491. “Where rights secured by the constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.”
The injunction Quist claimed Conces violated is all Fraud. And, now the media is being spoon fed crap about an “injunction”. Give me a break!!
Moving along… After almost six hours of waiting we were told by one of the marshals that Chuck would be coming into the court room one floor below. So we left our post and went to the court. Ten minutes later Chuck was escorted in, handcuffed. They moved him to the front and un-cuffed him. Chuck was very relaxed. He showed no signs of distress. We traded little smiles and all stood while Judge Quist entered the courtroom. The DOJ attorneys moved that the Court incarcerate Chuck, claiming that he was not cooperating with their effort to get answer to their questions. I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be nice to say to the DOJ, I’ll trade answers with you, I’ll give you documents if you will give me one first.” The first document I would ask for is the delegation of authority they were supposed to have in order to file their lawsuit. They wanted Chuck to give names of anyone he prepared taxes for. Chuck told them that he does not prepare taxes for people and to the best of his knowledge has not done so during the time period (5 years) they were asking about. They were demanding records, names, addresses and bank account numbers. Chuck told them that he doesn’t have records…doesn’t keep records. Then came help from the bench. Judge Quist, “Mr. Conces you seem to be a gentleman and honorable man sometimes, I’m going to leave the room and I want you to do your best at answering the questions for the government.” When I come back in 15 minutes we’ll have a look at your answers. The judge returned and once again the same questions, same answers. Quist granted the government’s request for incarceration pending answers and they put the cuffs on the Lawman.
Chuck’s wife Mary one of the nicest gals you’ll ever meet was not at the hearing. Chuck didn’t want her to come. Mary was a little flustered but she’s got guts. She started trying to locate her husband after my wife told her about the incarceration. If you have never been to jail, one of the psychological realities for family and friends is the “I don’t know for sure, call back later, we will let you know” games etc. etc.
We finally got some money in Chuck’s account after half a dozen or so phone calls. If you didn’t know, you can’t do anything in jail unless you have money in an account, and I happen to know Chuck took a little money with him, but I presume they take that along with your shoelaces. You must be someone who they consider authorized to set the account up, like next of kin. Mary and I worked it out and know Chuck can afford his first phone call to his wife.
This just in… I just got a call from Chuck’s wife who said that she just received a call from a woman with a heavy Spanish accent; her son called from the prison at Newago, White Cloud MI, and told her that Chuck is in prison with him. The lady was just passing the info on to Mary. If you have ever been in jail you know that there are good people there too.
Finally, don’t worry folks, Chuck will be O.K. This is all about our right to exercise free speech and certain officials are deathly afraid of the truth being spoken too loudly. We will be filing a writ of Habeas Corpus Monday or Tuesday and we’ll take it from there.
