The IRS is Out of Control!

The Insiders: There are plenty of smidgens in the IRS scandal
By Ed Rogers
06 May 2014
Today, the House Rules Committee is considering a resolution recommending that former IRS official Lois Lerner be held in contempt for refusing to answer questions about her role in the IRS targeting of President Obama’s political opponents. It is likely that the resolution will pass, and then it will come to the floor for a full vote in the House. When it does, the vote to hold Lerner in contempt should be bipartisan – if not unanimous. Any Democrats who vote "no" should be labeled as enablers of obstruction of justice. It should be impossible for Democrats to defend a vote that could only serve to encourage more corruption and non-cooperation in the future. Of course Lerner had the right to plead the fifth, but that doesn’t mean Democrats should not pay a price for voting to bless her stonewalling.
In an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly in February, President Obama pre-empted his own Department of Justice investigation and declared that there was not a "smidgen of corruption" in the IRS scandal. Well, I think a senior official at the center of the allegations pleading the fifth constitutes a smidgen. It is not unfair to draw logical inferences from her continued refusal to cooperate with the investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups. To the best of my knowledge, no one in this White House has ever called on Lerner to cooperate. Why? Because they know it is not in their interest for her to cooperate. They hope she will continue her silence in comfortable retirement and that Republicans and the media will be intimidated into giving up. Or, at the very least, they hope they can run out the clock on the remainder of Obama’s term.
Meanwhile, at the Justice Department, the White House has built a firewall by appointing Obama donor Barbara Bosserman to head the investigation into the IRS affair. No smidgens here folks. Move along, nothing to see. Please. Someone in this Administration is guilty of manipulating the IRS – or, is guilty of knowing that the IRS was engaging in activities that targeted the president’s political opponents. There are smidgens lying all over the place.
The very idea that the administration would protect someone who is hiding behind the fifth when there is not only smoke, but there is actually a clear glow of flames, is insulting. The 2014 election should be about the economy and Obamacare. We don’t need to keep adding exclamation points to every new Benghazi revelation. But at least the IRS scandal is related to the two election issues that really matter. The whole IRS debacle should be a bottomless pit of outrage, demands, select committees and whatever else from Republicans in Congress.

Obama : Administration ordered I.R.S. to target Conservative Based Groups
The IRS Came, They Saw and They Conquered

"We'll try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong patriotic duty not to go to jail." -Dave Berry, humor columnist and author
Many of you are aware of our almost four-year long battle with the IRS. Some of you may have fought them for much longer and unfortunately, most of you will lose or have already lost. The statistics of prevailing over the IRS in court runs about 2% of all cases. The IRS is, was and mostly likely always will be, an inflexible, faceless, insatiable, bureaucratic beast that knows no law other than its own. Even those that created it, the U. S. Congress, seem to have no power to stop it or rein it in, or purposely refuse to stop it because they like having it there to keep the masses in fear and in line. (See: "Why Congress Will Never Repeal The IRS")
(NOTE: We are continuing our fight with the IRS and have just filed a charge of grand theft against them for stealing 15% of our social security income for an illegal penalty assessment. Next we will file a "color of law" complaint with the FBI, against the IRS. Following that may come a lawsuit. These new documents will eventually be posted to our IRS information website page HERE.)
But the hard truth is, the IRS will relentlessly hound, harass and intimidate the hapless taxpayer who gets in its sights, from multiple IRS offices, sent with no names or pseudo names. You can't face your accuser because the IRS has no face. It makes tens of thousands of mistakes every year by wrongly interpreting the information a taxpayer submits ….. under penalty of perjury we might add. Those mistakes end up costing those tens of thousand of taxpayers, needless hours of time, money and emotional stress. This doesn't even include the time and cost for just preparing an income tax return, under 70,000 pages of undecipherable tax code. Your Congress let this happen and aids and abets it.
The taxpayer is required by law to sign Form 1040 under penalty of perjury, even though he or she have no way of knowing if the form is right because the tax code is so complicated and riddled with conflicts and contradictions. By signing the 1040 form under penalty of perjury, the taxpayer waives his or her fifth-amendment rights against self-incrimination. If the IRS decides that the taxpayer has done something wrong, the taxpayer has to prove that he didn't, in violation of constitutional safeguards and in spite of the requirement of the Tax Reform Act of 1998 demanding otherwise.
The IRS can hold a claim over the taxpayer's head for years without taking any action. And then, when the taxpayer least expects it, the hammer comes down. Suddenly a car is taken in the night, a bank account is drained, a wage is garnisheed, a social security check is tapped and a lien is filed against the taxpayer's credit, all without due process of law. Without warning a taxpayer's life can be turned upside down in an instant, with no redress. The IRS, a vicious, unrelenting predator, just does it and they get away with doing it, while Congress looks the other way.
There is little to no defense against this faceless beast. Go to court and watch your attorney exhaust your savings. What's worse, you will probably lose because going to court is a stacked deck in favor the government. File documents with the IRS in defense of your position and they are ignored. We know. It has happened multiple times in our case and we know of other cases where the same thing has happened.
The IRS uses the "frivolous position" scheme and its derivations all the time, if the taxpayer so much as deviates one iota from their inflexible forms, rules and regulations that no one can understand or agree on. The penalty for a taxpayer asserting an alleged frivolous position is $5,000 per taxpayer, husband and wife, in direct violation of the 8th Amendment against excessive fines. The IRS forces the taxpayer to waive his fifth-amendment rights and then fines the taxpayer if he exercises those rights.
But don't take our word for all of this. Read syndicated columnist George Will's recent article entitled "The heavy Hand of the IRS Seizes Innocent American's Assets" at this link.
But the IRS is no different from all other federal agencies like the EPA, the NSA, the USDA, the DHS, the INS, the FCC, the BLM, the USFW and a whole host of other bureaucratic entities that have morphed into an out-of-control fourth branch of government. Rule by fear and intimidation and the militarization of law enforcement have now become commonplace. Americans have become slaves, herded around at the point of the government gun, literally, backed up by unconstitutional law, the President, the Congress and the U. S. Supreme Court.
Examples of this militarization occur by the minute, all over America. Screw up a little and expect a heavily armed SWAT team to bust down your door with guns drawn and haul you off to jail for looking cross wise at a government agent, violate a land use or environmental ordinance, graze your cattle where you shouldn't, produce non-pasteurized milk, or God forbid, having some exotic wood on your premises.
So here is your America ladies and gentlemen.
1. An IRS that rules by fear, harassment and intimidation, ignores the rule of law and illegally attacks political enemies, as directed by political cronies in the agency, or those in power.
2. The EPA, USDA, BLM, USFW and NPS, dancing to the tune of radical environmentalists, makes up their own rules and the Congress does nothing, while the economy is driven into oblivion in the name of environmental extremism and property rights are irreparably trampled.
3. An out-of-control Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that sends in a fully equipped army of over 200 men because some cattleman is grazing his cows on federal land. Obviously, grazing cattle must be a capital offense, worthy of the death penalty without due process.
4. A public education system that indoctrinates more than it educates.
5. 86 million workers paying for 147 million takers.
6. Amnesty being granted to socialist-leaning illegal aliens that break our laws and suck up government benefits, aliens that will eventually vote Democrat when given amnesty,, at the urging of Democrats of course.
7. A weak, appeasing foreign policy by a lying president who has absolutely no understanding of how the world works and doesn't recognize that you can't negotiate with international bullies without putting America in grave national peril.
8. One political party that demeans, denigrates and would tear down all that America stands for, in the name of social justice.
9. Massive, immeasurable government waste, fraud, abuse and corruption that would get anyone in private industry fired or sent to jail. Systemic crony capitalism that makes politicians richer and taxpayers poorer.
10. A court system that has become so corrupt that true justice is nothing but a mirage on some distant horizon.
11. Investigations of government agencies go nowhere. No one gets fired for gross negligence or criminal acts. Government is free to do whatever it wants with impunity, including breaking the law, the citizens be damned.
12. Then there are the gunrunning, Benghazi and IRS scandals and a litany of Obama Care lies by Obama.
13. Half the nation is doing drugs, smoking pot, or getting drunk and could care less what happens to their country.
And we could go on and on.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. (From the Declaration of Independence in reference to King George, III. It is equally applicable to the current American government, at all levels.)The IRS is but a symptom of a much greater American malady …. the mad dash to socialism and perhaps even totalitarianism by the power elite under a one-world-order, where individual, God-given rights and American sovereignty become meaningless. The government (IRS) came, it saw and it conquered the people ….. without a shot being fired. And the people, in their apathy, ignorance, stupor and stupidity, took it and said it was good.
In one of the most important articles that we have ever written, now uploaded to our website HERE, we laid out how America arrived at this juncture. In our general societal human weakness, we allowed the government to lure millions of Americans into the hidden trap of government promises in exchange for their votes. Now 86 million producers are required by law, at the point of a gun, to pay for 147 million non-producers and there is no political solution that will ever change this ratio because the non-producers get to vote for their share of the producer's sweat, blood and tears. All producers should be outraged by this ratio and should take immediate action to bring it to a halt. But what action should they take? The trouble is, even the producers are divided ….. or just plain scared.
America, as a once-free nation, is on an irreversible, open-throttle, down hill slide to ….. pick your poison.
Unless …..
There is a group of Americans that will not let freedom slip through their fingers and it is a very large group, numbering in the millions. Because of past and current overt and covert actions against Americans by government, at all levels, this group grows larger by the day. It should also be noted that this group is armed to the teeth. If it comes to a fight and it just might, this group is not about to lie down and play dead. Hopefully, before it is too late, the government and the rest of the people will wise up and not let it come to this.
The outpouring of support for Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy from all over America, even if he did break the law, is just a taste of what is coming. These Bundy episodes will only grow in size and get more explosive, until the first shot is fired and the cat is finally out of the bag for all to see.
Yes, the IRS came, they saw and they conquered, but there are still millions of Americans who refuse to be conquered and are willing to stand up and prove it with bold and determined actions, in the spirit of the old West.
One lady and her husband, who were targeted multiple times by the IRS and other federal agencies for filing a tax-exempt status application, are fighting back big time. Many have seen her on TV already. But Catherine Engelbrecht's February 2014 testimony before Congress was very revealing and compelling at the same time. It shows the length the government will go to target an individual or a business for political reasons, but it also shows how some Americans will vigorously fight back. If you haven't seen her, we urge our readers to watch her testimony HERE.
 Catherine Engelbrecht gives a heart wrenching testimony
Ladies and gentlemen, many people keep saying that we must come together and reach a middle ground. They say we need to compromise. But in this world of rabid socialism, radical environmentalism (global warming, etc.), government militarization against its citizens and the impending one-world-order, where IS the middle ground? Meeting the other side half way, in the spirit of compromise to reach the middle ground, when we are already on the left side of the spectrum, only ends up sending us more left. So the question remains, where is the middle ground and whose middle ground is it? It is suicide to compromise with a bully and right now the other side is a bully and unfortunately, holds the middle ground and we're supposed to compromise?
Nevertheless, in spite of the great chasm that lies between our two vastly opposing ideologies, it is our sincere wish that eventually, cooler heads will prevail and the "cat will never get out of the bag." But we're not holding our breath.

The Lawsuit that could Dismantle the IRS

ANOTHER IRS HORROR STORY: In the parking lot was the VW with the Olivers, Stephen and Mona, surrounded by IRS agents and onlookers. The tow truck waited. An onlooker named Freeman was giving verbal abuse to the agents and pointing at them. Photographers and reporters were there, a story in the making. With billy clubs, the agents broke the glass on the driver and passenger side of the vehicle and dragged the Olivers out of the vehicle over the glass. Mrs. Oliver was screaming about her heart medication in the glove compartment. Through the struggle, pills were scattered with the glass. Freeman continued his barrage of screams, 'Would you look at that? It's the modern-day Gestapo.' Photographers took it all in and it was reported in the national news." --Donald W. MacPherson, tax attorney, from his book "Tax Fraud and Evasion: The War Stories"
In our two previous articles on the IRS this year, we discussed why the Congress would never abolish the IRS and why were thousands of taxpayers required to pay taxes, not filing tax returns, not paying taxes and getting away with it? The reasons why Congress will never abolish the IRS are abundantly clear. They use the tax code to control human behavior through what is called "social engineering" and the lobby built up around the tax code will never allow the Congress to repeal it. Why some taxpayers are not paying taxes and getting away with it, is vague at best and rests in the complexity and lack of clarity of the Internal Revenue Code and its history, from the passage of the 16th Amendment to present day.
The question of the 16th Amendment's ratification by the Congress and three-quarters of the states has been adjudicated and is no longer an issue of law. Sixteenth Amendment arguments have been uniformly rejected by the courts in other cases, including United States vs. Thomas.
From the 16th Amendment, the U. S. Congress, under control of the Democrats, passed the Revenue Act of 1913. The Revenue Act of 1913 had several other names centered around the word "tariff". The word "tariff" was used because tariffs were significantly lowered on many commodities in the Act. But the real goal of the Revenue Act was actually enacting an income tax even though such a tax had been ruled unconstitutional in similar legislation in 1894. President Woodrow Wilson lobbied the Democrats hard to get the Revenue Act approved and actually spoke to a joint session of the House and Senate to lobby for the Act. The House voted in favor 281 to 139 and the Senate voted 44 to 37. But the question is to this day, on whom does the tax apply? (source)
No matter what the IRS says, questions remain, the first being the constitutionality of the 16th Amendment. From a trusted source we learn that: "The Constitutionality of the Sixteenth Amendment was challenged in the case of Brushaber vs. Union Pacific R.R. Co., 240 US 1 (1916). The U.S. Supreme Court acknowledged the apparent conflict between Article I, Section 2, Clause 3, of the Constitution, which required all direct taxes to be apportioned, and the Sixteenth Amendment, which appeared to eliminate the apportionment requirement. The Court pointed out that the Sixteenth Amendment did not repeal Article I, Section 2, Clause 3, but noted that it was under a duty to uphold the Sixteenth Amendment, if it could be interpreted in such a way so as to eliminate the conflict. The Court did hold the Amendment constitutional, but only because it interpreted the Amendment as applying only to "indirect taxes" or "excise taxes", and not to "direct taxes". Brushaber and other cases that followed, stated that the Sixteenth Amendment did not give Congress any new or additional taxing powers that it did not already have, but merely put into written form the state of the law as it previously existed.
"Congress did not pass any other law intended to impose a direct tax on income until 1939, when the Public Salary Tax Act of 1939 was passed. The Public Salary Tax Act, Section 1, (which is now designated as Title 26 USC) imposed a tax upon the income of federal employees, U.S. citizens, and non-resident aliens. The term "United States" is defined in 26 USC 7701(9), as: "When used in a geographical sense, the term ‘United States’ means only the states and the District of Columbia. Section 7701(10) defines the term "States" as follows: "The term ‘States’ shall be construed to include the District of Columbia when necessary to carry out the purpose of this title". It is always necessary to construe the term "States" as including the District of Columbia, because Congress did not include the fifty (50) states, nor the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, or American Samoa. The Public Salary Tax Act of 1939 did not apply to Citizens of the forty-eight (48) States (now the fifty (50) States).

In several of the other 27 Amendments to the Constitution a clause is added that states: "Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation." The 16th Amendment did not include this clause, nor did the 16th Amendment specifically repeal Article I, Section 2, Clause 3; nor Article I, Section 8, Clause 1; nor Article I, Section 9, Clause 4 of the Constitution. In our judgment, the conflicts still remain.
Once again we learn from this source: "After Pearl Harbor was bombed by Japan on December 7, 1941, Congress declared war, and passed the Victory Tax Act of 1942, in order to raise money to support fund the war effort. This was done in accordance with Article I, Section 8, Clause 12, of the Constitution of the United States of America, which provides:
'The Congress shall have Power . . .
To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;'

"In 1942, for the first time in the history of this country, the Bureau of Internal Revenue sent out 1040 Form to the general public in the forty-eight States. This was done even though the Victory Tax Act of 1942 only applied to citizens and residents of the District of Columbia, and non-resident aliens."
"Most people thought that the Victory Tax Act required everyone to file a tax return and pay tax on "income", so they voluntarily filed a Form 1040 in 1942, 1943 and 1944. On May 29, 1944, Congress repealed the Victory Tax Act of 1942, but the news media did not publicize that fact. In 1945, the Bureau of Internal Revenue decided to mass mail 1040 Forms to the general public, just to see what would happen. Why not? The vast majority of the people had voluntarily filed tax returns before. Since the public believed that the Victory Tax Act was mandatory in the then forty-eight (48) States, and did not know that it had been repealed, they filled out the 1040 Forms and mailed them in, along with their checks. The Bureau of Internal Revenue was ecstatic and committed itself to continue perpetrating the fraud on the Citizens of the forty-eight (48) States. So, the Bureau of Internal Revenue has continued to send out Form 1040's each and every year since."

This same source alleges that: "The Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Internal Revenue Service were not created by any Act of Congress. These are not organizations or agencies of the Department of the Treasury, or of the federal government. They appear to be operated through pure trusts administered by the Secretary of the Treasury (the Trustee). The Settlor of the trusts and the Beneficiary or Beneficiaries are unknown. According to the law governing trusts, that information does not have to be revealed. You will not find the Bureau of Internal Revenue, or the Internal Revenue Service, or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms listed in 31 USC, Chapter 3, as an authorized agency of the Department of the Treasury."
Look it up HERE. Also, why is the IRS a Puerto Rico Trust Fund and not under the Treasury Department? If you doubt it, look it up HERE. Check out Item No. 62.
SIDEBAR: As further evidence of an out-of-control government bureaucracy, the Taxpayer Advocate Service, which is an independent office within the IRS, has just released a two-volume report describing the Mafia tactics that are being employed by the IRS. The Executive Summary is 76 pages long. You can read this scathing report at the following link:
There are so many questions as to the validity and constitutionality of the 16th Amendment, whether income can be legally taxed on U. S. Citizens under the Constitution and the 16th Amendment and the creation of the IRS as a lawful taxing entity, that those questions beg for clarity and legal certification. The Internal Revenue Code is so complex and convoluted, it cries out for adjudication from the Highest Court in the land, the U. S. Supreme Court.
Other sources say that these questions have already been adjudicated but not to the satisfaction of millions of Americans who have been slowly learning over the last several decades that they have been hoodwinked by a government that has shoved the IRS and the income tax down the people's collective throats, quite possibly by fiat, just like the Democrats in Congress and the President shoved Obama Care down the people's throats ..... in the name of more Karl Marx's social engineering and social justice.
Our legal system requires that a person suing another person, a corporation, or the government, must have standing and can demonstrate damages. We are proposing that all Americans who have been "damaged" by the IRS and there are millions of you, file a collective lawsuit in the U. S. District Court where all of you live, in each U. S. District in America, alleging violations under 42 USC, Sections 1983 and 1985 and further claiming that the damages you incurred resulted from the IRS applying law, under the color of law, without any demonstrable foundation of law. If you believe you have been "damaged" by the IRS, we would like to hear from you.
If all of these lawsuits were filed at roughly the same time, they could be merged into a national, massive class action lawsuit, where all of the questions we have raised in this article and more, could move to the Appellate courts and then on to the U. S. Supreme Court. We would lead this challenge if we can find SUPPORT among our readers to provide the necessary RESOURCES for such a challenge on a national scale. To mount this challenge, our goal is to establish a legal defense fund in the amount of $10,000,000 at $10.00 from 1,000,000 disgruntled, abused taxpayers, to build a very powerful, unbeatable legal team to lead the class action.
If the IRS and the IRS code are found to be illegal and the High Court so decided, it would be left to the Congress to come up with a new taxing authority to replace the IRS. One such flat tax scheme has been proposed in HR-25 by the Fair Tax Organization and sponsored by 73 congressional co-signers in the House, with eight Senator co-sponsors of S-122, the Senate equivalent. To be successful, a good portion of the nation would have to get behind this effort. (see this)
The fact is, the IRS will never be abolished by an act of Congress, much less the president, which we discussed in our first article entitled "Why Congress Will Never Repeal the IRS." The confusion and complexity of the IRS Code and its unequal enforcement and abuse will continue to be a significant problem for all Americans until the matter is settled once and for all. The only way to clearly define the power of the IRS and the IRS Code and its foundation in law is to adjudicate it in the courts. The only way to invalidate the IRS and repeal it, if it is indeed unlawful, is to prove its illegality in the environment of the courts.
If such a class action lawsuit were to take place on a massive scale, don't underestimate the power of the government to submit legal arguments, valid or invalid, justifying the IRS's existence, even though there may be no clear law for such justification. That's right. The U. S. Government, politicians and bureaucrats lie to consolidate their power over you all the time and have since the ink was dry on the Constitution! If the truth be known, representative government is not only messy, but it is highly susceptible to systemic corruption if the people aren't paying attention.
Don't ever count on government reforming government. Only the people can hold government accountable, either by peaceful actions, or by a violent reaction when government becomes tyrannical. However, everyone in America better hope that a violent reaction to U. S. Government tyranny never becomes a reality. The outcome of such a reaction is totally unpredictable.
We stated in our last article that we would share our experiences in filing FOIA requests with the IRS. Because of the long length of this article, we decided to move that information to the "FOIA Requests" page on our website.

The IRS on Trial for Corruption and High Crimes
By Ron Ewart
October 30, 2013
"The IRS does not prevail against citizens because the agency adheres to the rule of law... the IRS prevails against citizens because the agency ignores the law, twists the meaning of the law, and overwhelms the citizen with economic and legal burdens." -Joseph Banister, former IRS agent
In a few previous articles we have chronicled the difficulties we have had with the IRS, along with some stories from our readers on their difficulties with this rogue government agency. Coupled with the stories in the news about the IRS targeting conservative groups and illegally transferring taxpayer information to the White House, the IRS is currently on trial in the court of public opinion. But for justice to prevail, the IRS should be on trial in a federal court where some IRS officers and employees end up paying huge fines and sent to jail for very long times. The question is, will they?
Because of the difficulties we have personally experienced with the IRS, we have challenged them with a couple of strategies. One such strategy was the use of legal affidavits. Using that strategy, we defeated them on two specific occasions.
However, since they have now assessed a bogus $10,000 penalty against us and are threatening to seize our banks accounts and other assets, we are using a more aggressive strategy. In one September 2013 Certified - Return Receipt Requested (C-RRR) communication we demanded that the IRS cancel the assessment by no later than October 11, 2013, or we would commence with specific actions. Of course, there was no response to our demand. Consequently, on October 15, 2013 we filed a C-RRR letter with the two IRS offices that have assessed the penalties, indicating that we are now filing a criminal complaint with the FBI against the IRS and 4 other actions, as follows:
1. File a lawsuit in U. S. District Court, Western District of Washington stating several causes of action and requesting significant monetary damages. We are drafting the pleading at this writing.
2. Suggest to our national audience, who are having difficulty with the IRS, to file Freedom of Information Act requests under 5 USC Section 552, requesting specific kinds of documents.
3. Suggest to our national audience how to establish an LLC for their own business and use the losses from that business in the early years to offset their personal income taxes.
4. Create a series of IRS tell-all videos that will go viral because they will be about the IRS.

A copy of the cover letter to the FBI and the criminal complaint were included with our letters of October 15th to the IRS.
Copies of the FBI letter and Criminal Complaint were also sent to a wide range of recipients, including the Secretary of the Treasury, the IRS Commissioner and Chief Counsel, the news media, Chairman Daryl Issa of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee and Chairman Max Baucus of the Senate Finance Committee, both investigating the IRS. Copies of the documents have also been posted on our website HERE.
Item 1 will only be filed with the U. S. District Court if in the event the IRS follows through with seizure of our bank accounts or other assets. Items 2 and 3 are in process and Item 4, the video, has already been uploaded to Youtube and can be viewed HERE.
What we would like to share with our reading audience in this article are excerpts from our FBI Criminal Complaint against the IRS, as they paint a picture of criminality that should be prosecuted in a court of competent jurisdiction. The heart of the Criminal Complaint is contained in the allegations we make against the IRS. Words that are surrounded by brackets are additions to the Complaint that we will file with the FBI in an amendment. These excerpts from the Criminal Complaint follow:
I, the undersigned, a natural born citizen of the Republic State of Washington and also a nationally known author on freedom, liberty and property rights issues, hereby brings this criminal complaint against the Internal Revenue Service (hereinafter the "IRS") and more specifically the named individuals and specific titles of IRS officers and/or employees shown below. I bring the following to your attention in the hopes that the one federal agency, the FBI, that should take action in the violations I describe herein, will add these charges to the criminal investigation now underway against the IRS for illegally targeting conservative groups requesting 501c4 status and illegally transferring confidential taxpayer information to the White House in violation of federal law, and other violations of law that may come to light in the investigations by the U. S. House of Representatives, the U. S. Senate, or other investigative sources.
I hereby request that the FBI, Washington DC Headquarters, conduct a full investigation into the following circumstances in which I allege that collusion, racketeering, graft and fraud, as hereinafter legally defined, and intentional, willful and reckless disregard for the rule of law, took place and is taking place within the government agency known as the IRS.
1. The U. S. Treasury Department, Jack Lew Co-conspirator
2. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Co-conspirator
3. Acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfer Co-conspirator
4. IRS Agent Layne Carver of the Ogden, UT IRS Service Center Co-conspirator
5. District Director for the Holtsville, NY IRS Service Center Co-conspirator
6. District Director for the Ogden, UT IRS Service Center Co-conspirator
7. District Director for the Fresno, CA IRS Service Center Co-conspirator
We reserve the right to amend this complaint with the purpose of adding or naming other relevant agencies, officers, employees, or individuals.
Given our experiences with the IRS and the experiences of other taxpayers who have communicated with us, we charge that in fact the IRS is a criminal racketeering enterprise. The IRS Tax court is corrupt and a willing co-conspirator in the enterprise. The following items and other causes of action are reflected in this criminal complaint and will be added to our lawsuit in U. S. District Court against the IRS when file.
The IRS uses fear and intimidation to force taxpayers into surrendering their money.
It threatens the use of force to coerce taxpayers into capitulating to the IRS demands, legal or not.
It lies to the media and the public about its true intentions.
It promotes a blatant contradiction between the IRS’ public persona of compassion and willingness to help, versus its private behavior of ruthless aggression and destruction.
It believes they have an inherent right to rule over everyone else.
It has no respect whatsoever for individual rights, liberties, or the rule of law.
It believes they can simply invent the rules as they go along, completely outside of the law.
It believes they are exempt from the same laws and rules they force on everyone else.

The IRS operates in a completely political environment where decisions are made and actions taken for purely political reasons against perceived political enemies. Every American should be outraged at the politicization of the IRS, the ridiculous and complicated IRS tax code and how the IRS treats them. All Americans have become indentured slaves to the IRS Tax Code [in violation of the 13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.]
We allege that the IRS has violated the constitutional rights of lawful citizens of the United States of America, and our rights, under the color of law, in blatant violation of 42 USC Section 1983.
[We allege that the $10,000 penalty assessment filed against us is in direct violation of the 8th Amendment, which prohibits excessive fines and penalties.]
We allege that the IRS has illegally targeted political opponents of the Obama Administration by forcing conservative groups to jump through IRS hoops and scrutiny that is not applied to liberal groups, for purely political reasons. As a national conservative author, we further allege that we were specifically targeted for what we have written about the government in general and the IRS specifically, for purely political reasons.
We allege that the IRS has illegally transferred IRS confidential information of taxpayers to the White House and to other government agencies, in direct violation of federal law as reported by the news, [that requires huge fines and potential incarceration under federal law.]
We allege that the IRS violated the law by ignoring our legal affidavits and assessing penalties for what is a technical violation of the IRS code. We have heard from other taxpayers who have suffered the same indignities and illegal behavior by the IRS. One of those taxpayers went to jail for 78 months and was never charged with a crime. How can this happen in America?
We allege that the IRS has totally ignored our innocent spouse affidavit and continues to levy a penalty against us when in fact our spouse has never had even the remotest participation in filing Form 1040, or any other IRS form and the paying of income taxes.
We allege that the IRS has committed perjury by trying to perfect a "procedurally proper ASSESSMENT" (the $5,000 each penalty assessment against my wife and I) in violation of IRC 6065 and 18 U.S.C. 1621.
The abuses we have chronicled [in this Complaint] have, as their common denominator, violations of one or more the fundamental laws of freedom and liberty as outlined in the U. S. Constitution. These abuses embody the sort of malfeasance and intrusion by Government, anticipated by the Founders, and thus these violations, so chronic to the federal government and the IRS, leaves no question that it rises to the level of a criminal conspiracy. We allege that the IRS is in fact, an out-of-control rogue agency of the Federal Government.
It is the conviction of millions of freedom-loving Americans that this pattern and practice of abuse by the IRS, is an ongoing criminal racketeering enterprise and merits aggressive investigation and prosecution by the only federal agency [the FBI] that has the power to set things right, that is if they too, have not been corrupted. A special prosecutor should be named and a grand jury should be convened in dual investigations of the IRS's [criminal activities] and any connection to the White House.
The perception that way too many Americans have of their government is that if a person defrauds the government, he or she will go to jail. However, if the government defrauds or steals from the people, no one is fired and the perpetrators just get promoted. The other current [Obama Administration] scandals of Fast and Furious, the bungling and lying about the Benghazi murders of our Ambassador to Libya and three other brave Americans, the Justice Department’s wide sweep of the Associated Press phone records and Fox News correspondent James Rosen, only serve to re-enforce that mindset.
In conclusion, if the FBI decides not to pursue this investigation, or add it to its current investigation of the IRS, then it will be cast as just another "tool" of the hopelessly corrupt federal government, a government that demands absolute compliance with the law from the people, but then either ignores the law altogether, or selectively follows or enforces certain laws that it deems worthy, or that supports its un-constitutional, anti-American, [political] agenda.
In the end ….. "If the government does not obey the law and determines it is above the law, then America under the rule of law, no longer exists. The people will become slaves to government tyranny and anarchy and/or revolution can be America’s only future because some Americans will not go quietly into the night." -Ron Ewart
Without Prejudice under UCC I-308

Ron Ewart
We encourage our readers to share this article far and wide so that the corruption and criminal activity of the IRS will slowly but surely seep into the collective mindset of the American people and lead to their outrage over involuntarily becoming indentured servants to an all-powerful, out-of-control, rogue government agency, operating like a criminal racketeering enterprise. May it also lead to the IRS being put on trial for corruption and high crimes.

Your Ignorance of the IRS is Their Weapon Against You
By Ron Ewart
September 18, 2013
"The more expansive government is, the more perils people face in their daily lives, be it from IRS agents or from child support services, or from other
agencies that often have little or no legal restraints on their power. -James Bovard, author-columnists
"The IRS does not prevail against citizens because the agency adheres to the rule of law ... the IRS prevails against citizens because the agency ignores the law, twists the meaning of the law, and overwhelms the citizen with economic and legal burdens." -Joseph Banister, former IRS agent.
While Syria sweeps everything off the front page of the news, Putin makes the weakened Obama dance like a puppet and Kerry jets around the world chasing chemical weapon rainbows, the IRS is still arrogant, abusive and out-of-control and boy, have they got most Americans "snowed". Like all governments, courts and attorneys, they all make the process so complicated, only the elite few, attorneys and those who take the time to research it, know the law.
The IRS is no different. With tens of thousands of rules and regulations, much of it complicated and error filled and much of it being in direct conflict with itself, the average individual is putty in the hands of an IRS agent. They can only lay down and let the IRS run all over them and run all over them they do.
Since our article entitled, "Probing Eyes On IRS Lies" first aired last Wednesday, our e-mail has filled up with not only horror stories, but a lot of useful information as well. Much of that information will be or has been uploaded to our website HERE after we determine its credibility. The stories tell the tale of an IRS that cares not what it does, just so long as it instills fear and absolute obedience into the hearts of all American taxpayers. Here is one such story:
"I had an issue with the IRS several years ago. They ‘claimed’ I owed them some $8,000 dollars. They sent a ‘notice of levy’ to my employer and of course the employer rolled over and started stealing my earnings and giving it to the IRS. But a person is entitled to certain deductions. In my case being single, I was entitled to enough to pay rent, to buy food, to repair and maintain my auto, to even pay for healthcare and laundry. Nevertheless, I had to ‘quit’ to stop the ongoing theft. They kept taking my earnings past the $8,000. They said they ‘had to’ until they were sent a ‘notice to stop’. That’s extortion, plain and simple."
Here's another story:
"The IRS accused me of earning a huge unreported income that was not true, and they would not believe the true story, even though I provided lots of good testimony. This went on for 9 years, putting up with constant threats and having my bank account stolen three times. At one point I challenged them to prove I owed all the money they claimed and then after a few months time they wrote off everything except a few hundred dollars. But a short while after that, we began to receive $5,000.00 penalty letters. My wife received 7 letters and I rec'd 6, 13 total. I finally settled with them with an offer in compromise for $5,000.00."
The taxpayer, having no other recourse, agreed to pay the IRS $5,000, just to make it go away. The IRS is ruthless, arrogant and persistent, even when they are wrong. They don't even obey their own law. However, if that taxpayer had availed himself of the information that is out there on how to challenge the IRS, he might have prevailed. Ignorance can be costly.
We talked at length over the telephone with a Frank Kowalik on his experiences with the IRS. They sentenced him to jail for 2 years and a $20,000 fine for failing to file. They then yanked him out of jail after 7 months and flew him to Denver to stand in front of a judge. The IRS wanted their $20,000 fine and wanted him to sign a payment schedule. He offered them one penny. After wrangling with the judge in court a couple of times, the judged angrily dismissed the IRS case against him. From his experiences he wrote a book entitled "IRS Humbug." Excerpts from that book appear on the Resource Page of our Attack Watch Spies website. We have also uploaded to the Resource Page, or included in "The IRS Investigator" newsletter, some of our own correspondence with the IRS, including copies of affidavits, letters and Freedom of Information Act requests in PDF format. Something on one or more of these pages may prove useful in your own challenge to the IRS. Any personal information from these documents has been redacted.
Yes, those with the courage to research and challenge the IRS on the law are winning. The law trips up the IRS on numerous occasions because, like all government agencies, they fail to follow their own law.
There are certain things a taxpayer can do to protect him or herself from the IRS by what they say in correspondence to the IRS. Never, ever talk to the IRS in person, or over the telephone. Always conduct any communication with the IRS in writing and get them to communicate with you in writing. Also, demand that they sign any letters or other communication to you, "Under Penalty of Perjury", as they request you to do on your income tax forms. Never believe anything they say to you in person, or over the telephone, as they will deny ever having said it if push comes to shove. Whether over the telephone or in person, they will purposely try to lead you into saying something that will incriminate you in an error, or God forbid, a crime. You will have inadvertently waived your 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination and they will take full advantage of it. Remember, this is an adversarial relationship between you and the IRS. You must consider them to be the enemy. To do otherwise is to do so at your own peril.
The law of the IRS is contained in Title 26 of the U. S. Code. But the IRS is also governed by and subject to the Uniform Commercial Code. In communicating with the IRS and to preserve your 5th Amendment rights against self- incrimination, we suggest using the following paragraphs:
Please be advised that we reserve all of our rights under the Uniform Commercial Code at UCC I-103 and I-308 and any and all other rights under law or at equity.
§ 1-103. Construction of [Uniform Commercial Code]
(b) Unless displaced by the particular provisions of [the Uniform Commercial Code], the principles of law and equity, including the law merchant and the law relative to capacity to contract, principal and agent, estoppel, fraud, misrepresentation, duress, coercion, mistake, bankruptcy, and other validating or invalidating cause supplement its provisions.
UCC § 1-308. Performance or Acceptance Under Reservation of Rights.
(a) A party that with explicit reservation of rights performs or promises performance or assents to performance in a manner demanded or offered by the other party does not thereby prejudice the rights reserved. Such words as "without prejudice," "under protest," or the like are sufficient.
Further, we reserve our right not to be compelled to perform under any contract or commercial agreement that we did not enter knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally. And further, we do not accept any liability of the compelled benefit of any unrevealed contract or commercial agreement.
Be advised that we will hold the IRS to strict compliance with the "IRS Tax Code", "The Uniform Commercial Code" (UCC), "The Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998", the "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act" and "27 CFR § 72.11."
We also strongly suggest that you sign any correspondence to the IRS, immediately under the following statement: "Without Prejudice under UCC I-308." This will serve to preserve and protect your 5th Amendment rights and also the right to a court trial in a constitutional Article III court, not the tax court. The IRS tax court is nothing more than a dance with Kangaroos, where the Kangaroos lead.
Here is an update on our own difficulties with the IRS. We filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the IRS requesting any documents that contained our name regarding our Calendar-Year 2011 Income Tax Return for use in a lawsuit. Under 5 USC Section 552, the FOIA law, the IRS failed to timely respond to our request. We have sent them a Certified - Return Receipt Letter (C-RRR) accusing them of being in violation of federal law. We have also accused them of violating federal law in assessing a $10,000 penalty, plus interest, against us because they failed to respond to a legal affidavit that indicated we would comply with their demand after they responded to a set of conditions. The IRS never responded to that Affidavit, a legal presentment under the law. Our affidavit was in full compliance with the law, which they ignored. We have uploaded a copy of our Affidavit and our current letter to the IRS to our website HERE. Next week we will file a C-RRR letter with the IRS stating that if they have not cancelled the $10,000 penalty assessment against us, we will file a formal criminal complaint with the U. S. Attorney General's office and the FBI alleging violations of federal law and file a lawsuit against the IRS in U. S. District Court alleging a laundry list of IRS violations.
Several years ago we got a call from an attorney who said his client was mad at us and he wanted "X" number of dollars. The amount was relatively small and we agreed over the telephone to pay it because it would have cost more to hire an attorney. When we hung up the telephone we realized that we had just been "blackmailed" by an attorney. We immediately fired off a strong letter to the state bar association claiming we had been the victim of coercion, blackmail and extortion by one of their attorneys. We never heard from the attorney again. Like the attorney that tried to blackmail us, we don’t back down from an obvious injustice, much less harassment, extortion, or unlawful acts against us, even if it is from the government.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you fail to understand the law and your rights under the law, you are, or will become, a victim and a slave to the IRS, or any other government agency that decides to exert unconstitutional power over you. Where the IRS, or any other government agency is concerned, a little knowledge could set you free.
Once again, we make no warranties, express or implied, that the information presented here, or on our website, is accurate in all respects. It is the sole responsibility of the reader or taxpayer to verify the information for his or her own particular situation.

Probing Eyes on IRS Lies
By Ron Ewart
September 11, 2013
"We'll try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong patriotic duty not to go to jail." —Dave Berry
"If you do not confront what you fear, then you are fear's prisoner." —Ron Ewart
Yes, Syria tops the news these days but millions of Americans have not forgotten Fast and Furious, Eric Holder's Contempt of Congress, the Pigford illegal payouts to minority farmers, millions of dollars going to thousands of illegal aliens at one address, the AP and Rosen wire taps, Solyndra, the president’s unconstitutional executive orders, GSA extravagant-zas and Benghazi, but more particularly the arrogance, abuse and corruption of the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

In the last 10 years our weekly column has covered a wide range of issues affecting not only rural landowners but all Americans as well. Upon occasion we have turned our attention to the IRS and have written several articles about them. Now, perhaps because of those articles, the IRS has turned its attention on us with a vengeance. They are seeking an enormous penalty for what is purely a technical matter. We are fighting the penalty but in the end, they may "get" us anyway.
Consequently, we have decided to turn our attention on the IRS and use our weekly column on occasion and other avenues described later, to expose them for what they are, abusive, arrogant, ridiculously complicated and hopelessly corrupt.
Since June of this year we have written three articles concerning the IRS because of their focus on us. The titles are:
"Can There Be Any Escape From the Outlaw IRS?"
"Obama, Congress, Media on IRS - Feigned Outrage!"
"The IRS - Inept, Criminally Negligent and Hopelessly Corrupt!"
If you Google these titles, the articles will appear.
As a result of those articles we have heard from several taxpayers who have suffered greatly at the hands of the IRS. One individual was put in jail for 78 months but was never charged with a crime. How could this happen in America?
Here is one heart-breaking story in the taxpayer’s own words that shows just how corrupt the system really is. We have not used any names or locations so as to protect the taxpayer from further IRS abuse.
"I had a small company that made equipment for disabled people and for emergency applications. We had a minor problem with the IRS and because the agent was so hostile, I hired a lawyer (upon second-hand advice from my bank). I entrusted the lawyer with $20,000, which should have resolved the matter. Since the lawyer needed money, he told me that the IRS refused my payment and would seize my business within hours unless I filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. He filed papers with the court that greatly underestimated the value of the company. In order to raise the funds to pay the creditors and the lawyers, I had to liquidate so many assets that the company had to close."
"Then the creditors started filing lawsuits against me. I realized that something was very wrong, so I tried to hire a lawyer, but without any money, nobody would help me. I contacted the IRS and they determined that the agent never refused my payment and there were no plans to seize the business. I downloaded papers from the DOJ website, because the lawyer did not have me on the distribution list, and discovered several false documents. I contacted the US Bankruptcy Trustee, but they refused to investigate. So, I went to the FBI. The agent told me that the only agency with jurisdiction was the State Bar Association. Their investigation was an obvious fraud. Once the lawyer was exonerated by the State Bar, nobody would investigate."

"The lawsuits against me ruined my health and destroyed my career. By the last lawsuit, I had a lot of evidence which I submitted to the judge. I had proof that my lawyer embezzled money, committed perjury, perpetrated bankruptcy fraud and that the State Bar covered up the crimes. I submitted this proof to the judge and the district court. Rather than turn the matter over to the FEDS, the judge ordered me to pay the owner of the account. I forwarded those documents to the US Attorney, but I never received a response. Instead, some sheriff deputies conducted a search of my parent's property without a valid court order, clearly as a threat to me. The order, which had my name and address, was prepared one week after my letter to the US Attorney."

"I filed a complaint with my local police against the sheriff and judge, but again nothing happened for a number of months. Then the sheriff turned up with a bullet in his brain. It was officially ruled suicide."

"I have finally hired a lawyer. His reading skills are not very good, which is why he did not know that this case involves high level corruption. He is afraid to push too hard to clear my name for fear of his career and life."
"I am also trying to pursue a loan company for selling an account, even though they were aware that it was the subject of fraud. The CFPB refused to investigate. The Inspector General refused to investigate. According to the FDIC, the Federal Reserve is responsible for investigating the loan company, but they refuse to investigate. I wrote to my Senator. She ignored my letter, my e-mail to her website, my e-mail to her personal address, my telephone call to her office, and it has now been eight months."
"How do you fight this fraud and corruption when people get killed for knowing too much (the sheriff) and there is nobody who stands for the law?"
Ladies and gentlemen, we cannot independently verify this story, but the only way to fight this corruption and tyranny is for millions of courageous Americans to stand up against rogue government agencies, like the IRS. That is if there are any courageous Americans left who don't live in fear of government and the IRS. In most cases you cannot fight them alone and expect to win. You could very easily find yourself in the shoes of this poor soul who lost everything, including his health, to that corruption. His story is one of millions just like it, but you never hear of them because they are left to fight alone and one poor soul's story is not newsworthy.
Because of our experiences with the IRS, which we have previously chronicled in our weekly column, we have decided to stand up against them. We will use our skills as an author and researcher to ferret out the truth and where the taxpayer can win and where he can't. Unfortunately, if no one will back us, then we could very easily end up like the fellow in the above story.
In a full court press we are going to take on the IRS with an information-rich website and a monthly Newsletter entitled "The IRS Investigator." The website will contain factual information, useful resource material, IRS locations and service centers, IRS letters and forms from taxpayers, how to file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, along with court cases where the taxpayer wins, or loses. Eventually, it will contain a petition to repeal the IRS in its entirety, or drastically reduce the IRS's power and scale down the complexity of its laws. "The IRS Investigator" newsletter will chronicle taxpayer horror stories, stories where the taxpayer wins, whistle blower testimony, summaries of court cases and lawful techniques on how to beat the IRS.
DISCLAIMER: The website and newsletter are for informational purposes only and are not designed to provide legal or accounting advice or counsel. It is the sole responsibility of the reader (taxpayer) to verify all information on their own, as it applies to their specific situation.
A sample of our Newsletter is available on the website. We encourage our readers to "flood" us with stories of their experiences with the IRS, along with letters and forms they have received from the IRS. All relevant stories and documents will be published anonymously on the website, or in the newsletter, with all identifying information redacted. The website and the Newsletter are intended to not only be informative, but to give taxpayers a sense of hope in challenging the IRS. Our goal is to be a one-stop source. We fully intend to be "The Probing Eyes On IRS Lies."
We will need your support, both financial and moral, if we are to have any impact. Either subscribe to "The IRS Investigator" newsletter, or send us your donation. All donations will remain totally confidential and the names and addresses of donors will not be released, even in the face of a court order. Information for donating appears on the aforementioned website. The website is free of course.
Help us to unravel the abuse, arrogance and corruption of the IRS. Let's work towards legislative actions to do away with the IRS, a government entity that has become so powerful it can put people in jail without even charging them with a crime. The IRS destroys businesses and ruins lives of honest, law abiding Americans. The IRS code needs to be repealed and the 100,000 predators that work for the IRS need to find productive employment, that is if they know what productive employment is and are up to the task of performing in a competitive environment under capitalism.
This article has huge national implications for all American taxpayers. We encourage the reader to forward or re-publish this article in every nick and cranny in America. We can beat the IRS, but only if we stand firm and united by the millions. Help us start the snowball rolling, where it grows in size and strength every single day, to the point where the People's power is greater than the arrogant and tyrannical power of the IRS. We are sticking our necks out a mile. Don't put us in the position of having to stand alone and have our head chopped off ..... figuratively speaking.
There are two kinds of people in America, those that have never been "touched" by the IRS and those that have. Those that have know what we are talking about and should find our website and "The IRS Investigator" newsletter of great value.
Remember! Your social security number is the loan number for your portion of the national debt and they (the government and the IRS) aim to collect that portion by any means, to repay the debt that they racked up on your behalf for the United Nation policies of Social Justice, Radical Environmentalism and One-World Government, over which you had no vote.

The IRS - Inept, Criminally Negligent and Hopelessly Corrupt
By Ron Ewart
July 17, 2013
RACKETEERING: Traditionally, obtaining or extorting money illegally or carrying on illegal business activities, usually by organized crime. A pattern of illegal activity carried out as part of an enterprise that is owned or controlled by those who are engaged in the illegal activity.
It isn't only organized crime that can engage in racketeering. The worst kind of racketeering is when it is conducted by government. But this crime in government goes by a different name ..... CORRUPTION! Organized crime can probably take your possessions without due process, or have you killed, but it is not likely to be able to change public policy, or create laws and regulations. In contrast, the IRS can create laws and regulations, they can force you into bankruptcy, they can take your possessions and empty your bank account without due process and they can put you in jail. In fact the IRS can and does these things, regularly. With this much power, the IRS can probably have you killed as well, if it is of a mind. If they get caught at killing someone, they will just take the Fifth, a' la Lois Lerner and a cast of tens of IRS thousands. The IRS is a prime example of Lord Acton's famous quote: "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
But what is even worse, this monstrosity, this mega-bureaucracy (now over 100,000 employees and growing) was established by those who purport to represent the people. Then each year, those very same representatives feed the IRS with layer after layer of social engineering, buried in voluminous legislation that no one reads or understands, which spawns endless regulations, confusing forms and un-decipherable instructions. Need we mention Obama's Hellcare Legislation passed by only Democrats that is rapidly speeding towards what Democrat Senator Max Baucus has called a train wreck?
The IRS is so powerful that it can target any individual or group simply by filing notices of deficiencies, levies and liens for alleged or trumped-up taxes owed, or file piles upon piles of paperwork on hapless taxpayers or groups to obfuscate and delay whatever the taxpayer or group wants. They can and do take information supplied by certain taxpayer groups (think conservative) and transfer the information to those opposed to those taxpayer groups (think liberal). They can award multi-million, or billion dollar government contracts to their buddies without putting the contracts out for bid, as required by law. They can pay out refunds to illegal aliens by the millions, all at one address. The IRS can pay out millions upon millions in child tax credits to illegal aliens who use children in Mexico to claim their refunds. They can waste millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish conferences, presidential suites, stupid videos, gag gifts and bonuses. Not only can they, they have.
But woe be to the hapless taxpayer that gets caught in their sights. The IRS is arrogant, persistent, relentless, inflexible, arbitrary and capricious. We know. We were one of those that ended up in their sights. Now it may be just a coincidence that this author is a conservative writer and then again, maybe it isn't. However, it certainly wasn't a coincidence when they targeted the Tea Party, Patriot, certain churches and Israel groups, was it?
We'll show you just how arbitrary and capricious the IRS can be with our own story.
In the latter part of 2011, the IRS sent us a Notice that we owed more taxes for Calendar Year 2009. We filed a letter and legal affidavit stating that we would pay the amount owed upon receipt of their response to around 11 specific conditions contained in the affidavit. Believe it or not, they sent us a NO TAX DUE letter in response to our affidavit.
Then in the latter part of 2012 they sent us another letter stating that we owed taxes for Calendar Year 2010 for the exact same reason they determined there was NO TAX DUE for Calendar Year 2009. We sent them a response stating that there can be NO TAX DUE for 2010 for the same thing that there was NO TAX DUE for 2009. We received another letter from the IRS stating that they didn't accept our 2009 argument and they filed a Notice of Deficiency for 2010. That, ladies and gentlemen, is arbitrary and capricious.
So once again we filed a letter and legal affidavit stating we would pay the tax upon receipt of answers to our conditions in an affidavit.
Because of the arbitrary and capricious way the IRS was treating us and in order to preserve our Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, we crossed out the perjury statement on the back side of Form 1040 for Calendar Year 2011 and replaced it with a signed statement that said this:
"We hereby state and affirm that we personally prepared the attached IRS Form 1040 for Calendar-Year 2011 and the accompanying Schedule E and we did so to the best of our knowledge and capability. However, we make no warrantees, express or implied, that said Form 1040 is accurate in all respects, as there is no way we could possibly understand all of the tens of thousands of tax laws and we have no way to know if said tax return is true or correct, even if a tax professional prepared it for us. Therefore, we would be committing perjury to sign the tax return perjury statement when we do not understand all of the constantly changing tax laws contained in the IRS Tax Code, nor could we ever understand them in our lifetime."
Well this really ticked them off.
While waiting for a response to our affidavit for the 2010 issue, in February 2013 they sent us a demand letter stating that if we did not re-submit our Calendar Year 2011 return by signing the perjury statement, they would fine us $5,000 each, husband and wife. Once again, later in that month, we responded with a letter and legal affidavit stating that we would re-submit our Calendar Year 2011 return with the perjury statement signed, upon receipt of responses to a set of conditions contained in the affidavit.
After waiting the required 30 days for a response and receiving none, we sent them a letter that pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code under which they operate and the provisions of 27 CFR 72.11, their demand to re-submit our Calendar Year 2011 return was null and void, under law.
Then on June 12, 2013 with no response to our affidavit, we received an unsigned Civil Penalty Notice under IRC 6702(a) that the IRS was assessing each of us a $5,000 penalty for filing a frivolous return pursuant to IRS Notice 2007-30 covering what the IRS considers as frivolous positions. What is even more alarming is that one of the $5,000 assessment notices came from Fresno, CA and the other notice came from Holtsville, NY. Why? Does the right IRS hand not know what the left IRS hand is doing? The problem is, out of the 40 frivolous positions in IRS Notice 2007-30, they picked one frivolous position that they alleged we violated, but in fact of law, we did not violate it.
Amazingly, just four days later, on June 17, 2013 we received a Notice of NO TAX DUE for the Calendar Year 2010 issue, in response to our letter and legal affidavit.
Now if you didn't follow the order of events here, we'll sum it up for you.
Twice the IRS came after us for additional taxes. Twice we filed legal affidavits in compliance with current law, agreeing to pay the tax due if the IRS would respond to a set of conditions in the submitted affidavit. We had every legal right to file those affidavits under law. Twice they responded with NO TAX DUE. We also filed a similar letter and legal affidavit in response to their demand to re-submit our Calendar Year 2011 return by signing the perjury statement. Since we didn't comply with their demand, their response was to assess each of us with a $5,000 penalty for filing a frivolous return, which wasn't frivolous. They ignored our letter and affidavit and they ignored our letter stating that they failed to respond to our legal presentment (the affidavit) thereby rendering their demand null and void under law. Once again, their actions are arbitrary and capricious. We're still fighting the assessment to get it removed, and we will because the assessment is bogus and very possibly retaliatory for being a conservative writer.
Twice the IRS acted arbitrarily and capriciously against us when for over 50 years we have filed our tax returns and paid the legal amount of taxes each year. So they found the time to attack us for an alleged violation that wasn't a violation at all, but they didn't find the time to stop $46,000,000 in refunds going to one address in Florida for over 23,000 illegal aliens. They didn't stop the millions of dollars being paid to illegal aliens who were filing false tax returns to game the system by applying for child tax credits with children living in Mexico. They didn't much care about how much taxpayer dollars they spent on lavish conferences and stupid promotion videos. They didn't stop the illegal targeting of conservative groups seeking 501(c)4 tax exempt status, did they? This is what we do know. We can virtually guarantee you that what we do know is just the tip of the IRS iceberg.
Once again we ask, are we being targeted by the IRS because we are a conservative writer and have openly criticized the government and more particularly the IRS? The government hits our website regularly. We know they are monitoring us because when we write a controversial article, the hits to our website from the government quickly rise. For all we know our phone is tapped, we have been labeled a terrorist organization and we are on the no-fly list. Our calls and e-mails are probably being logged because after all, isn't the definition of a terrorist, according to Obama's Homeland Security Department (think DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano) a tea party or patriot group, or a returning veteran? Meanwhile, the FBI lets two Boston Muslim bombers slip through their fingers and people die and hundreds are injured at the Boston Marathon.
There are many who will tell you that you don't owe IRS taxes and they will cite all kinds of law to prove their point. It doesn't make any difference. The IRS still has the POWER to fine you into oblivion or put you in jail. Your only legal defense is in court and there is a trail of lost fortunes and extended incarceration for those who have dared to take this route. Not only that, the IRS makes up stuff. They break taxpayer agreements with reckless abandon. We've seen them do it. They have the POWER and they use it with a vengeance. Anyone who thinks they don't owe taxes and acts on it is headed for a world of hurt. Even those that are rich and can afford the fight have lost. Just ask actor Wesley Snipes. So whether someone tells you that there is no law to pay income taxes, that doesn't silence the IRS's power over you. If they want, they will find you and they will hound you and they will fine and penalize you into bankruptcy whether or not their allegations are valid, or throw your sorry a..... in jail. Face it! You are nothing more than an indentured servant to the government and the IRS.
Our experience with the IRS is just one experience out of the millions of Americans who have run afoul of the out-of-control IRS. We share that experience in this article to shine a light on what they are doing and have done and how arbitrary and capricious they are and can be. We know they have the power to bury us but we also know that they don't like public exposure of their misdeeds, as can be seen by all the waffling and "Fifth Amendment taking" they are doing over the current scandal. It was the goal of this article to provide that exposure.
To aid in that exposure, we strongly encourage our readers to share this article with everyone they know, in the hopes that the "light" we shine will start to impede the criminal negligence and corruption that exists in this inept bureaucratic government agency that we allege is a criminal racketeering enterprise, knows no bounds, nor has no master, except maybe the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, who may just be one of the least transparent, most corrupt and imperial presidents America has ever known. It is this same president who takes a certain perverse pleasure at thumbing his nose at the U. S. Congress and doing pretty much whatever he damn well pleases, perhaps even directing the IRS to target conservative individuals and groups and pay off illegal aliens with our tax dollars.
Have you been abused by the IRS or any other government agency for any reason? Tell us your story and we will publish it in our newsletter, "The EGA Investigator", Exposing Government Abuses, either with your name or anonymous ..... at your discretion.

Obama, Congress & Media on IRS - Feigned Outrage
By Ron Ewart
June 12, 2013

"He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner." (Excerpt from President Nixon's Articles of Impeachment)
The temptation for presidents, senators, congressman and other federal agencies to use the IRS as a political tool to "get" a person or a group of persons, or snoop into their lives and financial or political dealings, is hardly a new phenomenon. In a "Time - Swampland", May 14, 2013 news article entitled, "IRS Scandal Echoes A Long History of Political Harassment", the author wrote this:
"John F. Kennedy sanctioned an "Ideological Organizations Project" at the IRS that investigated right-wing groups. President Richard Nixon encouraged a secret IRS program called the "Special Services Staff" to investigate his political opponents and harass them with audits. And presidents weren’t the only offenders; the FBI has long used the IRS to harass political opponents. A 1964 FBI plan to "discredit" the United Klans of America called for illegally disclosing tax information about key members. Around the same time, the FBI initiated an IRS audit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his non-profit organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. One memo even suggested the bureau forge letters from King to donors of the group that warned of the ongoing IRS investigations, in the hopes of cutting off the group’s cash flow." [Link]
And it is not just the IRS that is used for political purposes by those in power. Federal bureaucracies, under the control of the Executive Branch, are also used to further specific agendas, or advance political ideologies. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) are used to implement radical environmental international policy without regard to constitutional protections or property rights, much less any cost benefits. The Department of Education is used to insert collectivist, multi-cultural, socialist, environmental and one-world-government propaganda into our public education system. The Department of Justice has been used to "spy" on not just journalists, but millions of civilian Americans as well, in violation of constitutional liberties. Homeland Security unilaterally makes up its own rules on border security and immigration policy that are in direct conflict with immigration law, usually at the direction of the President. The one common thread amongst them ..... is that they all lie, or take the Fifth.
But what is even worse, these federal bureaucracies have minds and lives of their own. They contain an elite culture of men and women who have been instilled with a liberal ideology that is deeply embedded in the body politic and they care not who is president, or who runs Congress. Presidents and Congresses come and go, but the bureaucracy lives on. Presidents and Congress could rein these bureaucracies in, but they are want to do so. After all, it can serve a President or Congress to have these stalwart bureaucratic warriors on the front lines with the people, taking the heat, as the IRS is taking the heat now. Except for Nixon, all other presidents have been essentially insulated from their actions to manipulate the bureaucracy for their own ends because they either leave no trail, or their minions cover for them, as Obama’s minions are covering for him right now.
This whole IRS scandal is a joke. They got caught with their hands in the cookie jar and now they promise to clean it up. If you think that IRS abuse of power or its lack of neutrality is somehow going to evaporate because of the current scandal, you are living in a fantasyland. Some changes will be made and some people will be shuffled around to pander to the masses. A few sacrificial lambs might even be fired. However, any substantive changes will be hollow at best. The unfortunate reality is that none of it will change the culture of the IRS or any of the other giant bureaucracies that exist in the federal government, much less state and local government. Once the "heat" is off the IRS, they will go back to doing what they have been doing for years, being the aggressive money collector for the Federal Reserve and the enforcement arm and snitch for the party in power, but mostly the Democrat Party.
All of this apparent outrage coming out of the President and Congress right now is feigned outrage at best. The congressional investigations may lead somewhere, but the real problem of the pervasive and permissive liberal culture that exists in the IRS and other federal bureaucracies will go unnoticed, much less fixed. This liberal culture has become institutionalized.
Ladies and gentlemen, we cannot understand how the IRS would target conservative groups unless we understand American bureaucracies and their history.
Article I, Section 1 of the U. S. Constitution says that: "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."
This means, without equivocation, that all law-making authority comes from the Congress, since "legislative powers" means the power to make law.
As America grew in size and population, the Congress could no longer handle the day-to-day requirements of governing and lawmaking, largely because they kept making unsustainable promises to the people. Consequently, they started passing on some of their lawmaking authority to agencies that were run by bureaucrats. Bureaucracies were given the power to promulgate rules and these rules have the same force as legislative laws, accompanied by fines, penalties and even jail time if the rules are violated.
But like any entity with power and staffed by humans, these bureaucracies took on a life of their own and their power and their propensity to abuse that power have risen exponentially over time. Since most bureaucracies fall under the executive branch of government, the rising power of the bureaucracies increased the power of the executive branch and eroded the power of the legislative and judicial branches of government. This rising power of the executive branch has played havoc with the "Separation of Powers" doctrine as instituted by the Framers of the Constitution, where the three main branches of government were supposed to act to limit the power of any one branch.
With the advance of bureaucracies throughout all levels of government, the chief executive of any political jurisdiction, from the President, to the governors of the states, to the County Executives and to the Mayors of cities, have all increased their power over the people by virtue of their authority over the bureaucracies. The executive branch has taken on the trappings of a king, using the bureaucracies as his instrument of power.
The men and women who staff these bureaucracies are most likely graduates from liberal colleges. Thus, the staff of each bureaucracy has a liberal mindset and promotes liberal policies, liberal philosophies and liberal agendas. This bureaucratic liberal mindset falls under the authority of the Executive Branch of government whether the Executive Branch is liberal or conservative. The temptation for the Executive Branch to abuse that power is almost overwhelming, but virtually overpowering for liberal Executives.
Consequently, any rules that are promulgated by the bureaucracies and come before the legislative bodies for adoption, or adopted within the bureaucracy, will always have a liberal bias in them. This results in an institutionalized liberal bias in all rulemaking by bureaucracies and forces the people to live under liberal policies, where conservative principles receive little notice. Liberals have essentially become a "Force Majeure" (superior force) throughout all levels of our government. Consequently, any threat to that "Force Majeure" can be and is challenged by the bureaucracy, thus resulting in targeting Conservative groups by the IRS for additional scrutiny. This isn't just some right-wing political rhetoric. This is fact.
From this we have very powerful bureaucracies like the Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Department of Agriculture and many more, each implementing and enforcing the liberal agenda. They adopt rules without legislative authority and without a constitutional test, in direct violation of Article I, Section 1 of the U. S. Constitution. Only actions by a legislature or a court, can undo bureaucratic rules, but unfortunately constitutional challenges are rare. Even when constitutional challenges are mounted, a liberal judiciary rules in favor of the liberal law or rule. Need we mention Obama Care and Chief Justice Roberts who sided with the liberals on the high court to rule that Obama Care was constitutional when it clearly wasn't? The decision by the high court so badly stretched the Commerce, Taxing and Necessary and Proper Clauses, it literally ripped the Constitution to shreds. Chief Justice Marshall must have rolled over in his grave several times when that decree came down.
If Americans do not start rolling back the power of the predominantly liberal bureaucracies, America will morph into a country where every man, woman and child is a law breaker and where a police state will rise to enforce all of the rules passed by legislatures and the bureaucracies. We’re almost at that stage now and there are incidents of the growing police state everywhere you look.
Political corruption in pursuit of power is the scourge of all governments, including Democracies and Constitutional Republics and it brings to mind a saying that applies to all small and large agreements entered into between humans .... "A contract (insert Constitution) only has value and is enforceable, if there is the utmost good faith and honor between the parties." In the same vain, "..... a locked door only keeps honest people out." All of the solemn oaths uttered by American politicians and bureaucrats who swear to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States so help them God, mean absolutely nothing if the politician or bureaucrat is devoid of honor. Political ambition for power's sake very seldom, if ever, is accompanied by honor. It more than likely comes with corruption and abuse of power.
The people cannot absolve themselves of responsibility when their government goes sour. Only the people can demand that government act with honor and unflinchingly comply with the agreements between the government and the people. But that only works when the people also have honor. IRS and other government scandals become the norm, when the people and those in government do not have the sacred trappings of honor, integrity and honesty woven into their souls. Corruption, crony capitalism, nepotism and abuse of power will rule, as in any kingdom or dictatorship. When the corruption is occasionally exposed, the leaders will feign outrage like they are today over the IRS scandal, take meaningless legislative or punitive actions and then move on. In the end, nothing will change, evil reigns supreme and individual freedom becomes a mirage on the distant horizon.

Can There be Any Escape from the Outlaw IRS?
By Ron Ewart
May 29, 2013
"Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter."
A quote by former South Dakota U. S. Senator Tom Daschle, a tax cheat extraordinaire that got caught when Barack Obama nominated him for a high-level government position. No, he didn't go to jail and neither did Timothy Geithner, your past Treasury Secretary, another tax cheat. But don't you try it. You will go to jail. The ruling class have immunity, you don't.

Whether you live urban or rural, if the IRS wants you, they will get you. The only thing that you can rely on is that the IRS will operate within the law. If the IRS decides to operate outside of the law, as they did in the targeting of conservative groups for special (and we do mean special) scrutiny for political reasons, then you have no hope of defeating them. They will make up law. They will violate agreements with the taxpayer with reckless abandon. They will say one thing and do another. They will threaten you with no basis in fact or in law. We know. They threatened us with a $5,000 penalty each for my wife and I for what we did on our Income Tax Return that was not illegal under the law. They cited a law which we allegedly violated, but in fact upon searching the law, we did not violate it.
In our response to the IRS we stated this: "Said marital COMMUNITY did not attempt to reduce or eliminate its Federal Tax Liability in signing its Tax Return as alleged. The threat of a $5,000 penalty against said COMMUNITY for submitting its Tax Return the way it did, was nothing more than to "scare" said COMMUNITY into compliance by intimidation, when there was no legal basis for it to comply."
This ladies and gentlemen, is the definition of absolute power that corrupts absolutely. There is no honor or integrity in the IRS, there is just the irrational mindset to collect taxes in any manner they so choose, in or outside of the law. One is reminded of how Kings used to collect taxes. The serfs were left paupers when the King's men came round. Resistance brought instant death
Now some of how taxpayers are treated by the IRS can be laid off to just plain incompetence and everyone knows that there is a lot of that in government. But much of what the taxpayer faces from the IRS today is bullying and brow beating with the sole purpose of rendering taxpayer compliance by any means. In a free country, we should not have to fear the IRS, because fear is a form of slavery.
Here is an example of IRS intimidation, from our own experience:
In one of our years the IRS challenged the way we handled a portion of it and said we owed more taxes. We challenged their allegation and they backed off and sent us a NO TAX DUE letter. The next year they hit us again for the same issue and we challenged them again, stating that there was NO TAX DUE for the same issue raised in the previous year, therefore there could be no tax due in the following year. They rejected our challenge and sent us a Notice of Deficiency saying we had 90 days to file a claim in tax court, or pay up. In response to the Notice of Deficiency we filed a certified - return receipt letter and a legal affidavit telling them we would pay if they responded in writing to 13 conditions as delineated in the affidavit. We gave them 30 days to respond. After 60 days we sent the IRS the following letter (with some redactions). However, before we put in writing what we told the IRS, we make this disclaimer:
"By providing the foregoing and following information, we are in no way attempting to advise or counsel anyone about tax matters, it being the sole purview of the individual taxpayer, the IRS Tax Code and the IRS, or any law the IRS decides to invent, or any group it decides to target for political purposes."
Dear IRS Agent ______________:
The Marital Community (the "COMMUNITY") served upon IRS Agent ________ by "Certified – Return Receipt Requested", a letter and accompanying Affidavit (the "AFFIDAVIT"), wherein said COMMUNITY conditionally agreed to the IRS demand to pay additional taxes as required under a Notice of Deficiency, upon receipt of Agent ___________'s responses to the 13 conditions contained in said AFFIDAVIT. Said COMMUNITY never received the IRS signed "return receipt" from Agent ________. In a follow-up letter, said COMMUNITY re-submitted the same letter and AFFIDAVIT that was sent to IRS Agent __________, to you, the above recipient. The return receipt from that C-RRR letter sent to you was received by said COMMUNITY on ______________.

Said COMMUNITY’S letter and legal AFFIDAVIT required that Agent _________ and/or you provide true and correct answers by law to those 13 conditions contained in the AFFIDAVIT within 30 days of receipt, otherwise the IRS would dishonor said COMMUNITY’S legal presentment. Those 30 days have long past with no response from either Agent __________, you, or any other IRS agent.

Under the provisions of the "Uniform Commercial Code" (UCC) and "27 CFR § 72.11", a non-response to a legal presentment is to dishonor the presentment and proof of acquiescence and therefore the demand in the IRS Notice of Deficiency is rendered null and void by the operation of law.

In over 50 years said COMMUNITY has never failed to file its income tax return, nor has it failed to pay its legally required amount of taxes. However, recent inter-actions with the IRS by said COMMUNITY over the last several years regarding the COMMUNITY’S income tax returns, including what the COMMUNITY considers to be devious, arbitrary and capricious behavior by the IRS, we can only conclude that we are being harassed and intimidated without any foundation of fact or law. Given what is going on in the IRS today with the targeting of Conservative groups by the IRS for special scrutiny for what are obvious political reasons (an unlawful act) and given that we write a weekly Conservative column, we can only assume that we are receiving "special" scrutiny from the IRS for political reasons because of what we write. It is difficult for said COMMUNITY to come to any other conclusion.

Finally, said COMMUNITY reserves all of its rights under the Uniform Commercial Code at UCC I-103 and I-308 and any and all other rights under law or at equity. In addition, said COMMUNITY reserves the right not to be compelled to perform under any contract or commercial agreement that it did not enter knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally.
And further, said COMMUNITY does not accept any liability of the compelled benefit of any unrevealed contract or commercial agreement.
Be advised that said COMMUNITY will hold the IRS to strict compliance with the "IRS Tax Code," "The Uniform Commercial Code" (UCC), "The Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998," the "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act" and "27 CFR § 72.11."
Ladies and gentlemen, the hard, cold reality is that no matter what government agency a private citizen is doing business, local, state, or federal, they had better know the law as best they can. If you don't know the law, the government agent or employee will try to "snow" you with their knowledge and intimidate you with their power. They will cite laws that don't exist, or don't apply to your situation. They will even lie.
They will exercise their power in an arrogant manner as if you were the slave and they were the master. They will do everything in their power to extract more fees or taxes from you, whether the fees or taxes are lawful or not. If you go into a government agency unprepared, it is a certainty that they will run all over you. If you show ignorance or weakness, you will be at their mercy.
If free Americans have any hope of reclaiming their freedom from this aristocracy that has morphed from our Constitutional Republic, we must create "A Culture of Open Resistance" (see our petition HERE) that ripples like a tidal wave through the fabric of society, a resistance that vigorously but peacefully challenges the prevailing wisdom or the brainwashed mindset of obedience, compliance and loyalty to authority. This brainwashed mindset is called socialism or communism and has happened many times throughout human history, advocated by governments seeking greater control over the people. It happened in Germany twice in the 20th Century with unimaginably tragic consequences. It is happening in all of Europe now and has been happening for decades. Central and South America have been consumed by dictators and despots for centuries, with few exceptions. Many are well beyond the jaws of fascism. It has never stopped happening in Russia and China. Africa may be a lost cause. But far worse, this mindset is now happening in America, once the land of the free. America was supposed to be immune from this shift to socialism and nanny government ..... wasn't it? It appears not!
Are you ready to declare your open peaceful resistance against a government that has lost all allegiance to the U. S. Constitution and to the principles of freedom and liberty, like the IRS, the DOJ, the DOE, the USDA, the EPA, or your local building department? Are you ready to save your country from a government that fully intends to increase its power over the people to the point of absolute power? Are you ready to defend your country against the merging of America into a hopelessly corrupt global government? Are you ready to take back your local government from the influence of the United Nations Agenda 21 policies and the U. S. government that is working in collusion with the United Nations against you? Are you ready to stop the brainwashing and indoctrination of your children in the public school system and our national colleges? Are you ready to work towards a sane national energy policy that works to increase our efficient energy sources for our growing energy needs and stop the subsidizing of alternative energy sources that are inefficient and way too expensive? Will you lean all over the President and Congress to stop rewarding illegal alien lawbreakers with Amnesty? Are you at a point where you will work to repeal Obama care and lobby your legislators for a sane health care solution that recognizes the sanctity of the doctor/patient relationship? Are you ready to draw a line in the sand and defend private property rights from all those who would take those rights from you, or your neighbor? Are you ready to stiffen your back against the rising national debt and deficits and work to stop the profligate spending, at all levels of government? Are you ready to exert your influence on federal policy makers to cut back on foreign aid to despots and dictators, restore America's "Walk Softly But Carry A Big Stick" foreign policy and fully defend our borders against drugs and illegal alien invasion?
If you are ready to do these things and we are sure that at least a few of you are, we strongly urge you to get involved in your local community and start taking control of your community's destiny instead of leaving it up to the arrogant aristocracy. Start with your local school board. Check out the textbooks your kids are reading. You won't believe what you will find there. Take part in county or city council or commissioner meetings. Find out what they are doing. You will be surprised at the decisions they are making and the money they are spending (wasting) because no one is paying attention.
It is your America folks, unless you willing hand it over to the tyrants that now run it, from the President on down to the smallest bureaucracy. Preserving freedom is hard, but then so is enduring perpetual slavery.
If you would like a copy of our "Citizen Petition Declaring A Culture of Open Resistance Against Government Corruption and Unconstitutional Actions," send us an e-mail at with your request. Please include a full name, county and state where you reside. We will not send the petition to a blind e-mail address. A printable version of the Petition, in PDF format, is available HERE.
