Are there conspiracies? Deductive reasoning causes people to entertain ideas of conspiracies. One of the biggest conspiracies in existence right now has been overlooked for decades. In education, evidence of an “income” tax conspiracy surfaces whenever the subject of taxation and its relationship to the 16th Amendment are explained in textbook form. We home schooled our children and used various accredited home schooling materials as guides to get the job done. Magruder’s American Government Vol. II is a good textbook on U.S. government. But, after reading on page 496, I discovered that Magruder is another unwitting accomplice to the “income” tax conspiracy. Magruder, like virtually all “educators” today, is a product of this conspiracy. Here is what his textbook says about the 16th Amendment:
The obvious impossibility of taxing incomes fairly and in accord with any plan of apportionment led, finally, to the adoption of the 16th Amendment in 1913. Magruder’s American Government Vol. II, Page 496.
Compare that statement with the Supreme Court’s explanation on the limitations and purpose of the 16th Amendment, three years after it was added to our Constitution:
“…concluding that the classification of direct was adopted for the purpose of rendering it impossible to burden by taxation accumulations of property, real or personal, except subject to the regulation of apportionment …relieve all income taxes when imposed from apportionment from a consideration of the source.” Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railroad 240 U.S. 1 (1916)
The Supreme Court and Magruder both use the word “impossible” while describing apportionment’s role on taxation. Magruder puts his conjecture above the High Court by claiming that what the Court stated: “…rendering it impossible to burden by taxation accumulations of property, real or personal, except subject to the regulation of apportionment.” is now possible with the 16 Amendment. Sorry Magruder, the Supremes disagree with your analysis: “The contentions under it (the 16th amendment), if acceded to would cause one provision of the Constitution to destroy another…” .” Brushaber 240 U.S. 1 (1916)
Who do you believe, Magruder’s contentions, or the Supreme Court rulings? The High Court has interpreted the 16th Amendment’s purpose (above) and its application in law (below):
“...it becomes essential to distinguish between what is and what is not 'income,' as the term is there used, and to apply the distinction, as cases arise, according to truth and substance, without regard to form. Congress cannot by any definition it may adopt, conclude the matter, since it cannot by legislation alter the Constitution , from which alone it derives its power to legislate” EISNER v MACOMBER, 252 US 189 (1920)
Hear no evil.
What are the consequences for keeping the truth out of America’s textbooks? Answer: virtually an entire population that is clueless concerning the limitations on our government’s lawful taxing authority. The infallible rulings given by the U.S. Supreme Court on this subject have somehow escaped the nation’s most learned doctors and professors. We put a very high priority on education in America, so what happened? If flirting with conspiracy theories is beneath you, then chalk it up to one of the worst cases of abuse ever perpetrated by the American teaching fraternity. Educational voodoo, like this “income” tax doctrine, makes it nearly impossible for Defendants to connect with juries on the truth. Ignorance makes for easy manipulation of jurors by sly judges. Jurors have no workable knowledge of apportionment’s purpose in keeping one’s wages safe from the clutches of plotting political and economic “scientists”. Private, unincorporated U. S. citizens, thanks to academia’s indoctrination, are now dragged into U.S. District Courts and charged with absurd things, like “willful failure to file”. The citizen juror, never having been exposed to the interpretive rulings from the Supreme Court, is clueless as to who is, or is not liable for the “income” tax. According to the Supreme Court: “...it becomes essential to distinguish between what is and what is not income…” EISNER v MACOMBER, 252 US 189 (1920)
“Evidently Congress adopted the income as the measure of the tax to be imposed with respect to the doing business in a corporate form...The annual gains of such corporations are certainly to be taken as income for the purpose of measuring the tax.” STRATTON’S INDEPENDENCE, LTD. HOWBERT, 231 US 399 (1913)
“…it manifestly disregards the fact that by previous ruling it was settled that the provisions of the 16th Amendment conferred no new power of taxation.”
STANTON v BALTIC MINING CO., 240 US 103 (1916)
(The 16th Amendment) does not “provide for any unknown power of taxation” BRUSHABER v UNION PACIFIC R. CO., 240 US 1 (1916):
Federal district judges, appointed for life, refuse to let defendants tell juries the truth of these and other High Court decisions. Thanks to our nation’s schools, no one is the wiser.
See no evil.
Federal district courts are only perpetuating a problem that was inculcated through many years of “education”. If our schools refuse to reference the High Court’s decisions regarding the 16th Amendment and the word” income” within it, efforts by litigating citizens for recognition of precedence law will have little chance of succeeding. We went to sleep long ago on this one. Now we are incensed by horrendous lower court decisions that harmonize with typical teaching, as in Magruder’s American Government.
Let’s be truthful here. How many of us do a little gloating about our children when we see them excel academically? It’s only natural to be a little prideful by Johnny or Jane’s acceptance into a university when asked by friends for updates on the family. We are so pleased to receive approval from our peers that we subconsciously excuse huge problems inherent in education (see no evil). This is no small issue that we can relegate to just a fuzzy detail within the subject of civics. Most will pay approximately one half of everything they earn in taxes; the largest portion of which will be withheld via W-4 “agreements” or surrendered through 1099 forms. The false teachings in American Government classes are the seeds which maturate over years of weeding the truth out. If you are mad at the courts, your anger at education should be at least double. Judges can only get away with this due to the prolonged grooming of the last two generations.
The contentions under the 16th Amendment have effectively lowered the U.S. citizen to slave status.: “The contentions under it (the 16th amendment), if acceded to would cause one provision of the Constitution to destroy another; that is, they would result in bringing the provisions of the amendment exempting a direct tax from apportionment into irreconcilable conflict with the general requirement that all direct taxes be apportioned. ...this result, instead of simplifying the situation and making clear the limitations on the taxing power...would create radical and destructive changes in our constitutional system and multiply confusion.” BRUSHABER v. UNION PACIFIC R. CO., 240 US 1 (1916)
The chaos caused by the confiscation of private property in the form of “income” taxes has done just that.
Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil.
Education is the culprit. It’s time we stopped giving our “educators” a free pass. They are to blame for blanketing the truth on the issue of income. School board officials are not appointed for life like U. S. District judges. Our school boards members are elected and serve one term at a time. They are subject to recall if they prove to be unresponsive to organized citizen inquiries. I hate to see so much patriot effort and energy go unrewarded in the judicial arena, when it’s education that’s giving birth to the ignorant and sponsoring lower court corruption. District court judges could not manipulate juries into bringing convictions of innocent citizens without the groomed products of our nation’s schools, the jurors. Our lower courts ignore precedence law because of the indoctrination instilled through the academy. Justice is represented with a set of scales held by a noble looking, blindfolded lady. We should have a national symbol for education, and specifically for its connection with inferior court judges. The hammer and sickle would be appropriate, but it’s not original enough. I would like to nominate three famous monkeys, the ones covering their mouths and ears can symbolize education and the third one covering his eyes is obviously mimicking the congressionally created lower court system. Right now those monkeys are too busy representing all of us. We have allowed ourselves to be flattered into a condition of silence and deafness by a system that praises our children, while at the same time grooms them to be little slaves for the master government that has gained control over our institutions of “higher learning”.
. Let’s get the monkeys off our backs by contacting our local school boards.
