WTP Initiates National "Clean Elections" Lawsuit


Ten states are being sued to prevent the use of computerized voting systems during the 2008 primary and general elections and beyond. The lawsuit seeks to halt the use of machine-based voting systems and vote counting procedures that hide the ballots and the counting of votes from the People.

The complaint challenges the constitutionality of current voting procedures in the states, claiming that they "heighten the possibility of confusion, deception, frustration, and fraud." It contends that the existing practices are constitutionally deficient and prevent open, verifiable, transparent voting, and that the use of discredited electronic voting machines and flawed vote counting procedures drastically increase the likelihood of error and election fraud. The lawsuit calls for a visible chain of ballot custody with paper ballots kept in full public view throughout the voting, counting, and tallying process.

The lawsuit asks the Court to prohibit the states from conducting elections that are not open, verifiable, transparent and machine and computer free.

The US Supreme Court has declared the meaning of the Right to vote, as guaranteed by the US Constitution. Individuals not only have the Right to cast a vote, they have the Right to cast an effective vote, meaning they have the Right to have their vote counted accurately.

"We need to bring transparency and accountability to the voting process throughout the states," said Bob Schulz, who wrote the brief and is spearheading the nationwide effort. "We need to reclaim our vote and ensure that our voices are heard and that our votes are accurately counted. The only sure way to do that is to have the People, in the light of day, observe, verify, and secure the votes cast on paper ballots and to count those ballots before the public by hand."

The ten states that have been sued thus far include New York, New Hampshire, Illinois, South Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Texas, California and Oregon.

We are in the process of serving the Complaint on each state.

Details of Appeals Hearing‏

Dear Subscriber,

I have the details of the oral arguments which will occur in theappeal of my conviction. Again, it will be happening at the federalcourthouse (844 N. King Street) in downtown Wilmington, Delaware(NOT in Philadelphia*). The case is U.S. v. Larken Rose (casenumber 05-5199), and the hearing will begin at 10:00 a.m., onThursday, September 27th, in courtroom 6A (on the sixth floor).

The hearing should be fairly short. The court has given each side15 minutes for argument, though if the court wants to hear more, itoften goes longer than that. And again, only the search warrantissues (First and Fourth Amendments) will be addressed at thehearing, though my appeal raises other issues in the writtenmotions. As I understand it, a ruling in the case should happen within a few days of the hearing.

So if you want to come along, feel free. As in any appeal, the onlyquestion before the appellate court is whether the trial courtjudge (Judge Michael Baylson) did what he was supposed to do. We'rearguing that he should have granted my motion to suppress, which hedidn't. While I'm at it, let me mention a few more points whichpeople have asked about:

1) If the appeal is successful, I get "unconvicted," but thegovernment could try to prosecute me again. Since I've alreadyserved the sentence, they wouldn't have much to gain by doing so,except for the "making an example" propaganda routine. (On theother hand, they'd have a lot to lose if they tried again and lost.)

2) There are several issues raised in my appeal, any one of whichcan be the basis for the conviction to be thrown out. If we win onthe issue of suppression, however, the government wouldn't beallowed to use anything they got from the 2003 raid of my house(including e-mails in which I say nasty things about the IRS--as ifthat is proof of a crime). In theory the government could still tryme again, but they could use almost nothing they introduced at thefirst trial.

3) If I win (either the government doesn't take it to trial again,or I get acquitted the second time), my conviction disappears, butall I get for the year of wrongful imprisonment is an official"oops." Only very rarely does is a suit for wrongful incarcerationsuccessful. (In addition to the wrongful imprisonment, the courtalso fined me $10,000, which I'm almost finished paying off. If Iwon I'd get that back.)

4) If I win the appeal, am tried again, and convicted again, Iexpect I would just get sentenced to "time served" (what I alreadydid). Since I was coerced into giving them returns pretending Iowed the tax, and giving them lots and lots of money I didn't owe(and entering an installment agreement for what's left), I can'timagine why the sentence would go up the second time around. So the second time around I'd pretty much have nothing to lose.

Sincerely,

Larken Rose

(* Apparently the Philadelphia appeals court is so backlogged thatsome cases, including mine, are being sent to other courthouses.That's why my appeal is happening in Delaware, and it's also why ittook so long to happen at all.)

Larken Rose on Ed and Elaine

True Colors Shining Through

"The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it." - John Hay

Dear Subscriber,

A lot of people think it's exaggerating or being melodramatic to
say that EVERY command from "government" is a threat of violence,
backed by the ability and willingness to use deadly force. The main
reason it doesn't look that way is because most people immediately
cave in and comply with government demands ("laws"), so the
violence backing it up is never seen.

Imagine an armed car-jacker using the following defense when put on
trial: "Hey, I didn't ever shoot anyone, or even hit anyone. I just
said some words, and they all GAVE me their cars! I didn't use
violence." If the words he used were "Give me your car or I'll blow
your brains out," I think we'd all agree that that constitutes
violence. The THREAT of force--stating that you WILL use violence
if someone doesn't do what you say--is by itself a form of
violence. No one with a brain would claim that car-jacking is
perfectly fine if the crook has never ACTUALLY shot anyone (but
only threatened to).

Nonetheless, the violence inherent in ALL involuntary "taxation"
goes unnoticed by most people, simply because in most cases, the
violence never actually occurs--people "comply" in order to AVOID
the nasty things threatened by the feds. However, for a reality
check, it's helpful for people to be able to see, every once in a
while, the true colors of so-called "tax collectors," and that only
happens when someone resists.

I was merely put in prison for a year, but even that is a very
deceptive indicator of how vicious and violent the "law enforcers"
truly are. I went along with being put in a cage in order to avoid
the ultimate "trump card" behind EVERY "law" or EVERY "government":
murder. If you doubt that, you need only look to an example of
someone who DIDN'T go along with the federal terrorists. I'm
speaking, of course, of Ed and Elaine Brown.

Does anyone need machine-guns and tanks in order to ask nicely for
a voluntary contribution? Are SWAT teams and sneak attacks required
to collect "donations"? No. The IRS, the ATF, and all "tax
collectors," are gangs of armed robbers, willing to murder those
who do not give in. Again, we rarely SEE the true colors of these
gangs of inhuman monsters, because almost everyone caves in quickly
in order to AVOID having the really nasty stuff happen to them.

I have heard that there are indications that the feds are
escalating their "presence" near the Browns' house. Setting aside
authoritarian euphemisms, what that means is that they are getting
closer to using overt violence to either capture or kill the
Browns. And since Ed Brown has made it clear that he won't go
quietly, it's pretty darn obvious that if they go in, the feds have
every intention of MURDERING him.

For what? For not giving them a piece of his paycheck. Let's
pretend for a minute that the Browns legally owed the "taxes" in
question, and let's even pretend that the Browns THOUGHT they owed
the tax (neither of which is true). Even if they said "Yeah, we owe
it, but we're not paying," would that make it okay to MURDER them?

In his brilliant writings, Lysander Spooner constantly described
government agents as "bands of thieves and murderers," which to
most people would seem a little harsh and over-the-top. But the
Browns are performing the public service of PROVING that that is
EXACTLY what authoritarian "law enforcers" are: people who forcibly
rob people, and who are willing to commit MURDER against those who
resist. Of course, if no one ever resists, we never get to actually
SEE just how evil the parasite thugs really are.

"The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it."
[John Hay]

Whatever someone thinks of Mr. Brown personally, or of any
unorthodox tax-related beliefs, it is good for Americans to be
forced to face the question: Is it okay to MURDER people for not
paying the government's "protection" fees? If you say "yes," you
deserve any level of enslavement and oppression "authority" can
impose upon you. If you say "no," then ALL "taxation"--however many
layers of euphemisms and platitudes the truth is buried under--is
an intolerable evil.

Some people are going as far as volunteering to use defensive force
to try to prevent the murder of Mr. Brown. Amazingly, those people
are then publicly demonized--and when possible, arrested--by the
hypocritical, power-happy, murderous, machine-gun-toting fascists
who are willing to COMMIT the murder. Mr. Brown is in his house,
surrounded by a bunch of heavily-armed enemies, who are there with
the obvious goal of capturing or killing him (knowing that the
former is extremely unlikely), but when someone tries to come to
the aide of Mr. Brown, to protect him from the aggressors, that
person is arrested for being a nasty criminal. This shows just how
insane the belief in "authority" can make people: armed robbery and
murder are okay because they're (supposedly) "legal," but using
defensive force against thieves and murderers is evil (if they call
themselves "government").

Well, if that is the case, then I'm proud to be rooting for the
evil side. Only the belief in "authority" can brainwash people so
thoroughly that they can see the guy who is being ROBBED as the
criminal, and the ROBBERS as the good guys. Such is the power of
the most dangerous superstition.

Not surprisingly, the thieves and murderers want things happening
quietly, which is why they've cut off the Brown's phone lines and
internet. Personally, I'd love to see a thousand eyes all around
the place, always watching, always recording, always spreading the
truth. If the U.S. Marshals, the New Hampshire Sheriffs, and any
other "authorities" involved actually believe that THEY are the
good guys, wouldn't they WANT lots of people watching? Wouldn't
they WANT the whole thing to be open and public, so their nobility
and righteousness would be plain for all to see? They are the
criminals, and they know it. They just want the rest of the country
to remain so indoctrinated and clueless that the Browns will look
like the "criminals"--dead criminals, if "government" once again
has its way (as it did in the cases of Waco, Ruby Ridge, Gordon
Kahl, and many others most people have never heard of).

Not surprisingly, most people don't really want to go up against
the most powerful regime the world has ever known. But at least let
he who has eyes SEE what is going on, and once again the "law
enforcers" will be shown for what they are: as Lysander Spooner put
it, "a band of thieves and murderers."

Sincerely,


Larken Rose
http://www.larkenrose.com

(P.S. I have no idea what the physical layout of the surrounding
area is, but if Mr. Brown's house is visible from anyone else's
property, I hope they have 24-hour video surveillance going--
infrared if possible.)

Ron Paul v Big Brother

Can he win?

By Bill Price

George Orwell created Big Brother in his novel “1984”. Orwell’s fictional creation, a totalitarian state, had gained complete control over its subjects. The term Big Brother has since become synonymous with all dictatorial political systems which ultimately supplant their greedy wills over the natural actions and private thoughts of the common citizen. A modern manifestation of Big Brother can be witnessed today through the phenomena known as political correctness. Be careful of what you say. When rights are converted into privileges and fear of the authorities is the rule not the exception, Big Brother’s ominous form is once again casting its long shadows. Orwell’s nightmare of a dictatorial political and philosophical system has evolved into a modern religion, a non theistic one unless you consider government and God as the same. An encompassing force incrementally imposed through steady doses of fear is Big Bro’s modus operandi. Long tentacles reach into all spheres of life. The economy is where the greatest amount of social force can be applied and Big Brother completely controls it through the Federal Reserve Bank, the World Bank and virtually all modern systems of finance. Fractional banking, compound interest, and money creation through debt have trumped congressional control in the U.S. Big Brother’s seductive power has cast a spell on our representatives in Washington D.C. “Congress shall have the power to coin money, regulate the value thereof; and of foreign coin…” U.S Constitution Article I § 8 part 5. This spell has made our elected representatives blind to section 8 part 5 of Article 1, and magically created an authority that gave Congress’s exclusive power for coining/creating money to private for profit bankers. Trillions in interest have been harvested by seducing Congress into ignoring Article I § 8 part 5.

Big Brother’s incantation has done similarly with the following Constitutional provisions:
“Congress shall have the power… to declare war…” Article 1 § 8 part 11:“

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included in this Union, according to their respective numbers…” Article 1 § 2 part 3.

And, Article 1 in § 9 part 4. No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census…”

The Constitution demands that direct taxes be apportioned. Every contender in the 2008 presidential race except for Congressman Paul is either under big brother’s spell or is just another of his unwitting accomplices.

We are in a mortal struggle with the ghost, conjured in literary form by George Orwell. Orwell has proven himself to be a prophet with his futuristic specter, an atheistic “paradise”. Ron Paul is a challenger vying for president…the only one willing to do battle with the shadow government of Big Brother. His success depends on his two weapons, the Constitution and us. I’m certain of the Constitution, but do we patriots have the fortitude required for a serious fight? The real question now is not can Ron Paul win, but rather, can we make him the winner.

Report From Bob Schulz

Media Noticing WTP's
First Amendment Battle at Second Circuit


Following the Order by the US Court of Appeals in Manhattan blocking enforcement of the most harmful part of the August 9th injunction issued by a federal District Court Judge against WTP, and that ordered oral arguments before a substantive motions panel in Manhattan next Tuesday, both the New York Times and a prestigious, 35-year old First Amendment watchdog and legal defense organization have published stories regarding WTP's case.

Last Tuesday, the New York Times followed up on its original story regarding the District Court's injunction with a short piece covering the Order by the Court of Appeals. The text appears below:

The New York Times

Order on Tax Evasion Site Blocked

A federal appeals court has temporarily blocked an order that the Internal Revenue Service be given the names of people who acquired materials from a Web site on how to defeat the tax laws.

The Web site, givemeliberty.org, shut down last week and posted an Aug. 9 order to do so from Thomas J. McAvoy, a senior federal judge for the Northern District of New York.

Judge McAvoy ruled that evidence showed that the Web site was inciting people to violate the tax laws. The judge found that under a 1969 Supreme Court ruling, the Web site had thus lost its First Amendment protections as either commercial or political speech.

Robert L. Schulz of Queensbury, N.Y., who operates the Web site, appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Thursday.

On Friday, Judge Peter W. Hall temporarily blocked the portion of the order requiring Mr. Schulz to turn over to the government the names and identifying details of people who had obtained information at the Web site on how to stop federal tax from being withheld from their paychecks. Judge Hall set Sept. 18 for oral arguments on the issue.

On Friday, September 1, 2007, a First Amendment watchdog and legal defense organization called "The Reporter's Committee for Freedom of the Press" also covered the developments in the WTP case, specifically referencing USDC Judge McAvoy's finding that WTP's Speech "incites imminent lawless action," and referring to the seminal Supreme Court case Brandenburg v. Ohio which established the legal standard for determining if such Speech can be enjoined.

The Committee provides free legal assistance to news reporters facing litigation for their exercise of the First Amendment. Its September 7th article about WTP can be read here. The Committee's website is www.rcfp.org.

Given the importance of the numerous First Amendment issues before the Court and the difficulties the government faces in publicly defending its 6700 related "enforcement" actions against WTP, we anticipate next week's proceedings will of enormous significance not only for the WTP organization but for the larger future of Free Speech and the First Amendment's guarantee of the People's Right to Petition the government for Redress of Grievances. We anticipate posting a brief web update following next week's hearing as well as an audio recording of the oral arguments.

As of today, the Government has yet to respond to WTP's motion to stay the enforcement of Judge McAvoy's order pending the results of WTP's appeal from that Order.

North American Union Amero Coin is REAL!!!

!!! Breaking News !!!

"THE AMERO" IS REAL;
I HAVE ONE TO PROVE IT!

UNITED STATES, CANADA AND MEXICO TO BE MERGED INTO SINGLE NEW ENTITY NAMED NORTH AMERICAN UNION!

By: Hal Turner

Three weeks ago, I published a brief snippet on the front page of my web site reporting the governments of the US Canada and Mexico are conspiring in secret to merge the three nations into a new entity called the North American Union.

There has been much talk of this on various internet blogs for over a year. Most of those blogs have been smeared as "conspiracy theorists" and have been largely ignored by the main stream.

What prompted my interest in the issue was money: I was sent professional images of actual AMERO coins by someone in the US Treasury! The person included a note saying they like my radio show and are frightened by what's been going on in secret within our government.

This Treasury Department person was outraged that our country was beginning to coin money as part of a merger that would do away with our country, via a merger the American public knew nothing about!

When I got the professional images of the AMERO coin, I was finally intrigued enough to make mention of it on my web site. My site has gotten over 20 Million visits in the last couple years and is becoming more popular because of the brutal honesty and timely delivery of news that folks don't find elsewhere. This story about AMERO coins would fit my niche of breaking news, so I ran a snippet of a story.

As part of my report, I included the professional images sent to me by the Treasury person. They appear below:





I also mentioned that very pricey "Collector Proofs" of the coins were also being Minted in Silver and Gold, and I posted an image of one such Silver Proof, shown below:



The story went on to say that the US Government has intentionally overspent itself for the purpose of irreversibly Bankrupting the country. The idea is that they will drive the country into economic failure, then when millions of Americans are panicking at the prospect, offer them a solution of merging the three countries as "the only possible way" to avoid losing everything.

They will force Canada into the merger by telling them the US currency they hold and rely upon will be worthless and the only way Canada can even hope to salvage any of the funds is to join the NAU.

They will sell it to the Mexican people by saying it will instantly improve their buying-power and quality of life.

In reality, the value of the US and Canadian dollars will be significantly reduced to counter the worthless peso being absorbed. People in the US and Canada will suffer great financial loss while Mexicans will see significant gain. In the meantime, the financial elite and the politicians they own will make out like bandits!

That's the reason politicians are doing this: to get rich for themselves and their financial elite pals.

The folks in power within government and their buddies in Banking and finance know that in any currency switch, some lose big while others gain big. Really big! In fact, folks with foreknowledge of such a switch can make hundreds-of-millions, perhaps even billions for themselves overnight. Those without foreknowledge (common folks like you and me) usually end up being wiped out.

INSTANT, FULL BLAST "SPIN"



I published the images and the small story and went to bed. I had no idea what my little story would do.

Within a matter of hours, there was a full blown effort to discredit my story and the images as fake.

I was accused of lying. I was accused of having "photoshopped" the images by creating them in Adobe Photoshop.

Within a couple days, a basic web site for AMERO "FANTASY COINS" was erected on the internet and word of that site was spread quickly. The site contained the same images as I had run on my front page, so clearly whatever "SPIN" was happening was being driven by others who also had the professional images.

There was intense effort to claim the whole idea of these coins was a fantasy and there was absolutely no truth to them whatsoever. That effort to "spin" the story out of existence worked. Folks quickly lost interest. I did not.

Get me the real thing by any means necessary



I reached out to the person in the Treasury who first alerted me to the coins. That person told me "The shit hit the fan around here when your story ran." The person went on to say "They told everyone in all the Mints that anyone revealing information about the AMERO would be fired and perhaps even criminally prosecuted for endangering national security."

Ahhhh yes, the grand old catch-all of national security. When they wheel that one out, you just KNOW they're pissed off about something!

I told the Treasury person that the only way anyone might believe this is happening, is for me to actually get one of the coins. The Treasury guy balked. He said "there's no way to get one without stealing it."

I though about that for a moment. . . . . then decided that if my government is concealing the actual Minting of coins for a new sovereign entity which may end up with power over me, but which I haven't been told about, then that government deserves whatever gets done to it.

I told the Treasury person to get me an Amero by any means necessary - even if that meant stealing it. The Treasury person said it would require them to think about for awhile and if it could be done, I would get one in the mail.

I waited. And waited. Frankly, after about three weeks, I lost track of the story -- until today. A real AMERO coin arrived at my home in the mail this afternoon!

The real thing arrives!

Today, I received a single 20 AMERO coin in the mail. A real coin. Real metal, really MINTED by the US Mint in Denver, CO. The proof that it is being Minted in Denver is that the coin is stamped with the Mint Identity letter "D" on the bottom right of the side with the eagle just like regular US coins already in circulation today!

Click each image to enlarge it, CLICK TWICE TO SUPER ENLARGE IT!!











Please note the letter "D" stamped below and to the right of the Planet earth at the bottom right of the coin in this photo. That "D" stands for the United States Mint at Denver, CO.

VIDEO!


So that you can see this is a real, metal coin, I have made a small video of me holding the coin, turning it, then dropping it on a wooden table top so you can hear what it sounds like when it hits.
Download the Windows Media Video here

I WAS RIGHT!


I stand vindicated. All those who claimed I fabricated the images now owe me an apology. All those who claimed these were "fantasy" coins can now explain why anyone in their right mind would spend Millions of dollars to create the rare and expensive professional dies and plates necessary for minting coins that will not be issued?

The simple truth is, the coins are real. The plan to merge the US, Canada and Mexico is real. Our government is lying about it and the fact they are minting money at the Denver Mint bearing the name of Union of North America is proof.

So America, Canada and Mexico, our governments are betraying us and planning to merge our countries without our knowledge or consent, or by financial disaster they bring-on intentionally. What are we going to do about it?

For my part, the Second Amendment comes to mind.

Reports our country will become part of the North American Union including Mexico and Canada!




I TOLD YOU THAT "AMEROS" WERE BEING MINTED; MANY ACCUSED ME OF LYING. . . . .

NOW, A U.S. STATE HAS BEGUN ISSUING "NORTH AMERICAN UNION" DRIVER LICENSES!

North Carolina has become the first U.S. state to place the logo of the yet-to-be-formed "North American Union" on its official state identification. North Carolina has issued a Driver License bearing the logo of the North American Union.

Gee, now all the morons who screamed at me claiming the AMERO coins were a "fantasy coin" can now go scream at WorldNetDaily too! Maybe you can accuse them of reporting about a "fantasy" driver license? Why not; after all, they have photos of the NAU-ready driver license the same way I had photos of the NAU coins.

Maybe, when everything is in place and you wake up one morning to find America merged into Canada and Mexico, maybe THEN you'll realize I was telling the truth. Until then, stay happy with your head shoved firmly up your ass. You seem to like keeping it there even when the truth is right in front of you.

Speak no evil.

By Bill Price

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.

Cognitive Dissidence
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.

U.S. Court of Appeals Orders
Oral Arguments For September 18th


On Thursday, August 30, 2007, as we reported in the previous article, the United States Court of Appeals ruled that WTP does not have to turn over to the Government any information identifying people who have obtained materials from or donated money to WTP.

On Friday, August 31, 2007, the United States Court of Appeals issued a three-part order:

The Court added WTP's motion for a stay of Judge McAvoy's entire injunction order and to expedite the appeal to the substantive motions calendar for September 18, 2007.

In addition, the Court decided it wants to hear oral arguments on September 18, 2007.

Finally, the Court directed the Government to submit its written response to WTP's emergency motion ASAP.

"We are very pleased with the way the 2nd Circuit has been responding to our case," said Bob Schulz. "We fully expect that on September 18, or shortly thereafter, the Court will grant our motion to stay the lower Court's injunction order, allowing WTP to turn on its website, without fear of being held in contempt of Court by Judge McAvoy. We also expect the Appeals Court to expedite our appeal from the District Court's order, by setting a tight briefing schedule. Finally, we expect to prevail on the appeal: we expect the Appeals Court will reverse the lower Court's summary judgment order and dismiss the case. We expect the Court to see the transparent motive of the Government to use WTP's Speech related to the Blue Folder as a front, or pretext for its real objective -- to fully silence WTP and thereby shut down the Right to Petition program."

We gratefully acknowledge the warm response we have been receiving to our call last Friday for donations, and we respectfully request that everyone carefully consider sending a donation - either a monthly or a one-time donation. We have much to do and pay for as we prepare to file our landmark Right to Petition case with the United States Supreme Court, and as we appeal from Judge McAvoy's order.

Here is the text of the Court's order entered on Friday, August 31, 2007:

8/31/07 Motion for stay of injunctive order and to
expedite the appeal has been added to the
substantive motions calendar for September
18, 2007**TO BE ARGUED**; any responsive
papers to calendar ASAP. [Entry date Aug 31 2007] [JC]
