Guest Column: Scary Election 2018

Taking the Long View; No American Need Worry if They Stand for the Law
By  Pete Hendrickson

And Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Election Day, 2018. A Bit Scary, Right?

It’s particularly fitting this year that election day comes so soon after Halloween…

SO, ARE YOU WORRIED about the election outcome this week? You should be!

After all, the unprincipled, progressivist nut-case Democrats might regain power.

Or, the unprincipled, neo-con nutcase Republicans might retain power.

Whichever way it goes, as things stand now, you and your kids are going to be screwed.

YOU SEE, AS THINGS STAND NOW, the winners, of either party, will find themselves with far more money in the treasury than is needed for their Constitution duties. Those duties include little more than courts, actual national defense, modest Depts. of State and Treasury, a Post Office and a Patent Office, a small immigration bureaucracy and a few other offices of similarly focused function and dimimutive dimension.

There is FAR more in the US treasury than is needed for these lawful obligations of the United States. The excess will be spent (after some serious nest-feathering) on a host of things inimical to your interests.

That excess will finance an army of spies surveilling you; an army of “security thespians” impeding and dictating to you; an army of soldiers making enemies for you in other countries which are no threat to you; and swarms of petty functionaries with clipboards which endlessly harass you and eat out your substance in myriad other ways, as well.

Guest Column: November 3: An Historic Date in American History

Just two days short of Guy Fawkes Day (ref. V for Vendetta)
By Peter Hendrickson

Commerce Twp., Michigan: 15 years ago this 3rd of November, 2018, the very first 100% income tax refund in modern American history was issued by the United States. That $10,152.96 refund was of everything withheld during 2002 as Social security, Medicare and normal federal income taxes from the $58,965 salary of Peter E. Hendrickson.

Hendrickson’s deep research into the history of the tax, the judicial decisions concerning its nature and the fine print in tax law which is rarely seen by anyone, even IRS officials and judges, had revealed an actually quite limited scope to the tax. That research had also exposed a structural design by which people who have actually done nothing taxable are made to seem as though they had, causing the tax to be much more widely applied over the last 80 years or so than necessary or proper.

Deploying his unique knowledge, Hendrickson simply rebutted the misrepresentation of his earnings on which the IRS typically relies in determining tax liability. After what ended up being an extraordinary amount of attention to his claims by the tax agency, he received that first complete refund.

Even before that initial proof of concept, Hendrickson had published his research and findings in a 2003 book, ‘Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America’ (ISBN 0-9743936-0-6). By the time Hendrickson’s own second complete refund issued a year later (of everything withheld from him in 2003), more and more Americans were doing the same. Continue reading

THE ENERGETIC, AMBITIOUS YOUNG JOURNALIST hurries through the National News Desk Editor’s office door, and without even waiting to be recognized, blurts out his news:

“Chief, I’ve come across the story of a lifetime! There’s this guy in Michigan who does what might be called forensic legal research– historical background, fine-print parsing, untangling “legalese”, that sort of thing.”

The excited reporter plants his hands on the editor’s desk and leans in, eyes wide.

“The guy decided to focus on the income tax back around ’01, ’02. He ended up uncovering mind-bog-gling stuff, Chief!

“Ever since the guy published his findings in 2003, tens of thousands of people have been routinely paying ZERO in federal and state income tax, Social security tax, and Medicare tax every year. ZERO!! Instead, these people get complete refunds of everything they had paid in or had withheld from them!!”

The young man now looks as though he’s barely restraining himself from grabbing the editor’s lapels and pulling him in to continue nose-to-nose… Continue reading

What Life Is Like When The Truth Revealed In CtC Is Widely Understood
By Peter Hendrickson [Full original at this location.]

Your great-grandparents would remember this with aching fondness; you will be delighted and astonished.

IN HIS 1776 MASTERPIECE ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations’, (and other of his writings, as well) Adam Smith explains the concept of the “invisible hand” by which each individual looking out solely for his or her own self-interest nonetheless organically supports and improves the well-being and prosperity of the whole community. America’s founders and the framers of the United States Constitution, who were close students of Smith’s work and wisdom, employed the same principle in their establishment of the federal tax structure.

That structure is designed to ensure that federal revenue reliance would necessarily be upon excises, imposts and duties, the incidences of which are entirely within the control of each individual citizen. Because each citizen naturally attends to his or her own financial well being by limiting such incidences, the Founders’ structure, like a mighty invisible hand energized by hundreds of millions of individual self-interests, relentlessly keeps the state lean and on the leash– when that structure is functioning as intended and is not nobbled by ignorance and Leviathan-serving mythology and disinformation.

Brian’s Column: American Heroine

“A free people claim their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate” — Thomas Jefferson

Collage by Doreen while caged earlier =>

Folks, it looks like Doreen is going back in to finish her ‘term.’ Surrender date is January 29, 2018. Please find two excellent explanatory, inspiring posts by loving husband Peter here:

  1. http://losthorizons.com/IStandWithDoreen.htm#BackToPrison
  2. http://losthorizons.com/Documents/CtCLife.htm.

As you all know, Doreen’s story warrants a Pulitzer Prize winner to be writing it and spreading the truth about her unlawful and unconstitutional pro/persecution… and exposing the lies of the Ignorance Tax scheme… a scheme that is crumbling before our eyes. [Ref. Pete’s outstanding column, item 2) above.] All funds raised go straight to Pete and Doreen.

My understanding is she will be having the same address and you can contribute to her supplies fund, when the time comes. I’ll post another update with that information at that point. The Doreen Relief fundraiser is here: http://gofundme.com/DoreenRelief.

I don’t have to tell you that nothing changes out here on the CtC warrior front lines, most of us wouldn’t know how to go back to filing Ignorant, even if we wanted to. Continue reading

Hearing: 9/8/17, 0900, Detroit Federal Building, Judge Victoria Roberts
By the Dispel Ignorance, Dispense Justice Association (DIDJA)

Well, Didja?

Time to stand up again for our beleaguered heroine, Doreen Hendrickson, for whom a hearing is scheduled this Friday morning on whether Judge Roberts will continue to hold Doreen in contempt of court for refusing to commit felony perjury. Details and any last minute updates to be found at http://losthorizons.com. The Coffee Coaster is publishing, in the form of a guest column, the latest Lost Horizons newsletter article. Doreen’s husband, Pete, continues to write impassioned arguments to the federal judiciary and Justice Department exclaiming on the outrage of its exercise of unlawful, unconstitutional arbitrary power, in effect exclusively, against his wife.

He also rages against the terminally corrupted mainstream media machine that remains impervious to pleas for humanitarian common sense. Just where IS the fourth estate, supposedly speaking truth and justice to power? Where are the media, where are the people?! I have some theories… and below Pete’s Newsletter, will include something you can do.

Doreen Hendrickson Faces Unbelievable Federal Contempt Trial, July 21
Let’s Everyone Who Possibly Can Show Up in the Peanut Gallery

4thBranchUnbelievable for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is this is the second trial for the same alleged offense. The first trial ended with a hung jury, which the judge decided to call a mistrial rather than an acquittal. [How in the world does that happen? Maybe I’m naive, but we were always told in civics 101 that you cannot be tried for the same offense twice. Who thinks we have grounds for a petition to a judge to form a grand jury to investigate Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds (Eastern District, Michigan) and bring rapid indictments for gross judicial misconduct? Until that happens, we’re going to have to ride out the misconduct and we hope secure a second jury acquittal.]

We need everyone who can possibly find time to attend the trial to make plans for visiting the courtroom and standing in her corner as a group of outraged citizens who will never back down in support of the rule of law:

Brian’s Column: The Constitution Solution

Another reason to always listen to your mother
by Brian Wright


This one continues again from the previous two columns that resulted from general consternation over O-Slammer-Care… I mentioned to Mom that the Constitution is simple: no federal authority for health care. She said she agreed with me on this one. “It isn’t in there. Government officials should know and make available the Constitution to their constituents.”

And then the light bulb went off!
