Michigan responds with complete refund of income tax incorrectly withheld
Note: This is a followup column to my original column two weeks ago, “The Elation of a First-Time Educated Filer,” attesting to the liberating power of the so-called Hendrickson Discovery (ref. Pete Hendrickson’s book, Cracking the Code)—simply on the occasion of filing! Now, I have a ‘victory’ to report.
First, the start of the good luck story
It was a strange day, yet a day any gambling man would have bought a lottery ticket…
Doing errands then winding up at the Novi post office, Thursday, May 5. Buying Media Mail stamps to send out my latest book to potential reviewers of stature… then returned to my car, an 1997 Mercury Villager that I’ve been holding onto for sentimental reasons, but I tell people it’s an investment. Turned the key. Click, click, click. Dead battery, snow cone sized load of corrosion on the posts. First good luck: it’s a day out of paradise: clear blue, cool breeze, no trace of toxic atmospheric aerosol spraying, 65 degrees.
Now more good luck: Right next door is my place of work, where I have a part time job as a med tech driver, also my manager is in. So he offers to come over there to jumper the car, using my cables. In the meantime, in a nearby parking spot, a nice fellow exits his car and asks if I need a jump, says he has a portable battery booster/jump starter. I say sure. Nobody has a wire brush, but I clean the goop off the terminals with paper towels as best I can, and the key turns it right over. Vrooom. Starts right up. Good Samaritan Guy points out that the gauge says my alternator is successfully charging, too.
Just then the tow truck I called 45 minutes earlier—thinking I’d have to take the Villager in for radical surgery—shows up. Good guy. More good luck: he won’t bill me for the trip. Hadley’s Towing. The boss mentions it might be a good idea to drop by Autozone or similar to hook up to their free test machine for battery-starter-alternator health; well, sure. I recall some auto-related businesses in a set of stores a block south of the post office; find an Auto-Lab franchise. In another stroke of luck, though it costs me a couple of hundred USD, the tester determines my battery is at 10% of minimum cranking amperage, and the worker’s eyesight determines that the positive terminal clamp has half corroded away.
So I now have a new battery. Car runs great. Not only that, but the Auto-Lab supervisor there have a long conversation about what it would take to bring my Villager into the 21st century, give it a major makeover. Good luck: they have the wherewithal and they’re only two miles from where I live!
Getting to the point: the most best luck of all
I go home. Picking up the mail, I see a letter identifying the Michigan Treasury in the return address. Seeing thru the envelope window it doesn’t really look like a check, plus I see the words: STATE TREASURER’S WARRANT. My heart skips a beat. What’s this with a friggin’ warrant. The only kind of warrant I’m familiar with is the one they arrest you with. I’m thinking OMG, I got one of the corrupt bureaucrats and they’re going to make trouble, already they’re talking I should surrender myself for ‘frivolously’ declaring that what my W2 form indicated as income was, in fact, not income. There goes the run of good luck.
I bring in my goods from the various errands, then directly open the envelope anticipating a body blow. Ommm. Ommm. Quieting the mind. The anxiety turns immediately to joy as the little slip of paper with that obnoxious word, WARRANT, on it, is, indeed, a full refund check for state income tax incorrectly withheld from me by my employer [no income, no income tax]. It’s a small amount because I’ve only been on the payroll for five months.
Knock me over with a feather.
Folks, my routine experience is by far the normal condition, where for those ‘filing educated’ the clerks in the various treasury offices do their jobs correctly: recognize that you have properly reported that your earnings not obtained in the exercise of a federal privilege are not income and they send the return to the next process where the refund checks are generated. It’s simple, it’s the law.
As Yogi Berra would say, “You can look it up.” Indeed, if you, yourself, have been treating your direct, nonfederally-privileged earnings as income, take a break from shipping an outrageous percentage of those earnings to the ‘organized criminal class’ (who, by the way, is using your wealth to destroy you). Buy and read Pete’s book, Cracking the Code.
- No, I suppose I’m not fully out of the woods yet. I have yet to receive my federal refund. Anomalies can crop up, particularly if your returns are more complicated or if you’re amending earlier complex items. Sometimes an official will try to intimidate you with a threat of fines for a so-called frivolous return; but most of those erroneous responses are easily met with resources available on the losthorizons.com site.
- The prosecutions and convictions of Pete Hendrickson in the past, then more recently his wife Doreen, have nothing to do with their upholding of the law by filing educated. These attacks are merely noteworthy atrocities of official corruption carrying no weight in law or reason. The simple fact is that a relative handful of rogue government officials in Treasury, the judiciary—and (IMHO) the runaway traitorous national security state apparatus—took a look at the enormous and growing success of the ‘Hendrickson Discovery’ ($billions returned to hundreds of thousands of individuals); they freaked out and decided to illegally harass and attack the ‘Discoverer’ and the family he holds dear. The attacks will not stand.
- I know as well that no blanket harassment order is in effect for other friends and family of the Hendricksons. The Hendricksons’ children file educated and show refunds. [You may see the publicized victories on the losthorizons.com page here. Note, as well, that these victories helpfully reveal the manner of the forms and documentation used in filing.] I, myself, have been vociferous and public in counterattacking the criminal government officials who have gone after the Hendricksons, even writing a book on the Doreen outrage, The Motor City Witchcraft Trials. I was also a witness at Doreen’s ‘trial’ where my views of the prosecution and judge were made explicit into the record. I have been quoted by World Net Daily as stating “… all of the officials involved in the ‘crime of suborning Doreen’s perjury’ should be indicted, convicted and imprisoned for their ‘heinous act of violence.’”
Just saying that the government is, after all, the government. If they anticipate damaging resistance they leave the intended victim alone. Any blatantly illegal, unconstitutional action leveled against a celebrated resistor who knows the obvious law is vetted at quite a high level, which is to say, above particular judges and prosecutors. They are committing, after all, high crimes; no one in public office takes part in such a crime unless it’s been approved up and down the line by all the mafia chiefs six ways from Sunday.
Moral of the story: file educated as soon as possible. You’ll be glad you did.
Send the WND column referenced above to the news aggregators, like this:
The Aggregation Procedure—Please, Everyone at least Submit to Drudge
This is a simple procedure that will work. Pete Hendrickson, Shane Trejo, and a few others have come up with this plan. So let’s all just submit the Doreen story, as a minimum, to the Drudge Report, which is one of the more liberty-oriented of the giant aggregators.
- Go to the Drudge Report lead page here, then scroll to the lower right hand side, where you see a ‘Send News Tips to Drudge’ box.
- In that box, enter a variation of the following message: “Federal judge-prosecution team suborns perjury of Michigan woman, Doreen Hendrickson, in historic First Amendment case that stands to bring down the IRS and the entire criminal injustice system: http://www.wnd.com/2016/05/rule-of-law-takes-hit-in-courts-order-to-commit-perjury/.“
- Press the Submit button.
That’s all there is to it. For conventional media, they used to say, “You’ll never BE if you’re not on TV.” In alternative media, you can make the same statement wrt Drudge or some of the other large aggregators or Websites… e.g. “Your story won’t budge if not picked up by Drudge.” So be it.
I personally subscribe to http://www.alternativenewsproject.org/, an aggregator service out of Australia, for $4 a month AU. And have submitted the Doreen WND story to it, as well. Here is a link to the ‘Ten Best Political News Aggregators,’ on about.com. I’m listing the direct links to each of them here (so you won’t have to go to the about.com page first):
- PoliticsToday (app)
So, most of the above aggregator sites have a means for at least submitting a message. [Some even solicit ‘tips’ from readers.] Be patient and copy and paste the message above into as many aggregator ‘tip’ boxes that you have time for.
To Help Doreen:
[Note: Let’s start a trend: until Doreen’s conviction is overturned and she’s returned safely home (and, we hope, that the officials who caused her to be sent to prison are indicted and convicted of gross violations of individual rights) we’ll all, as a minimum, tithe (donate 10%) to the Hendricksons—either via the Gofundme site set up for Doreen or mail checks or money orders to: Pete Hendrickson, 232 Oriole Road, Commerce Township, MI 48382—from any refunds we obtain as educated filers.]
PS: DOREEN’S ADDRESS: Doreen Hendrickson 48564-039, FPC Alderson A-4, P.O. Box A, Alderson, WV 24910.
