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

Guest Column: Independence Week Brief

Educated Federal Income Tax in Three Easy Steps
By Pete Hendrickson [Thanks to Tim for posting in the Virginia CtC Forum]

We all need to determine whether our earnings fall under the category of taxable income, which is to state, as a consequence of federal privilege… or whether they are ours by right, hence not income (as defined by the statutes and regulatory code). I’m referring the following checkpoints as a public service.

When our earnings are not income, then please do not treat them as such: Learn the process by which to retain and/or reclaim all rightfully earned property. DO NOT PAY WHAT YOU DO NOT OWE! Our republic depends on it.

Entire Legal And Practical Truth About The Income Tax In Three Short Sentences

Focus on these simple points and you can teach anyone the truth about the tax.

  1. The income tax is an excise.
  2. Excise taxes are taxes on the gainful exercise of privileges.
  3. You probably didn’t earn your money by exercising any taxable privilege (or earned very little that way).

Inarguable (and nowhere disputed) proof of the first two statements above can be found concisely spelled-out in this little seven-page document. Whether the third is true for any particular person can be determined by consulting this guide to understanding “income-taxable privilege.”

Donut Whole: Simple Grand Jury Template for Michigan, Etc.

Simple, Practical Grand Juries
By Brian R. Wright

Note: This column is the standin for my book until it’s done: The Accountability Project, which addresses the the problem of political corruption in Michigan with a simple, practical rollout of people’s First Principles’ independent grand juries. Most of the key ideas for implementation are included here, but not the heartwrenching personal stories of a mere handful of the thousands of living, loving, peaceful human beings crushed by public officials running amok on their abuse of power and unspeakable crimes of corruption.

When the book is complete, the above paragraph will include the hyperlink to it.
[From ‘notes on a napkin,’ 03/18/18. The idea is to proceed from our country’s First Principles and have the states, then the federal government, enable, facilitate, and obey (not own, control, and dictate) the people’s institution of grand juries. Note: This grand jury template and federal derivatives will be featured in my upcoming advocacy book,
The Accountability Project. — bw]

First Principles’ Grand Juries
Phase 1 Implementation–State-County Level Jurisdictions
To be written in form of a bill for the Michigan legislature to pass:

[Name: The Accountability Act… additional verbiage]
[Purpose: Uphold the people’s First Principles against corrupt government]

It is anticipated and hereby accepted by the legislature that:

  1. Each of the 83 counties of Michigan shall accommodate a continuously sitting people’s independent grand jury (SIGJ) for exercising the people’s authority to directly monitor, investigate, and indict gross misconduct in office, violation of oaths, and abrogation of American First Principles (“We hold these truths…”) by public officials.
  2. Each sitting independent grand jury shall be composed, voluntarily, of 25 good and lawful persons who are not government employees or solely beneficiaries of state largesse, and who are Constitution-knowledge-and-fealty tested, randomly selected by lottery, acting with supreme authority over all state justice officials in the jurisdiction.
  3. The SIGJ grand jurors shall be compensated from the state treasury at 80% of the governor’s prorated salary for each session, and shall select a foreman, who shall select an independent counsel (IC) and private investigators (PIs) as needed; foreman and ICs/PIs shall be compensated at 100% of governor’s prorated salary.
  4. Session length, hours, working conditions, workflow, security and meeting requirements, empaneling of additional special grand juries, interface protocols to state and county officials, and so on shall be the prerogative of the SIGJ and developing common IGJ practice, except that as a general requirement it is anticipated grand juror identity will not be publicly known and full cost to the state treasury for all SIGJ and subjury sessions shall not exceed <$2 million> per year [January 2018 USD].
  5. The SIGJ of each county, as its primary mission, shall hear and rule on consideration of all reasonable complaints of corruption or criminal behavior of public officials and accomplices; it is the civic duty of all adult residents to report violations of oath of office and gross misconduct in office to the SIGJ.
  6. The SIGJ of each county, as its secondary mission, shall hear and rule on consideration of all reasonable filings by state justice officials alleging a crime by one individual(s) against another individual(s); the SIGJ for such person-to-person cases may either decide to itself investigate and send indictments back to the justice officials or set up a special SIGJ composed in the same manner as the primary SIGJ.
  7. State/county justice officials–judges, prosecutors, police, executives, etc.–work at behest of the SIGJ; when ordered or requested by SIGJ foreman and ICs/PIs to assist in investigating a case they do so as top priority; these officials, as a top priority, also promptly effect any public official indictments by bringing such individuals before a suitably composed and informed petit jury.
  8. The SIGJ retains full authority over the formation and function of the petit jury(s), assuring that all individuals–public or private–are accorded a fair trial, also by their peers, which shall have the same composition requirements as people’s grand juries, i.e. “not government employees or primarily beneficiaries of state largesse, and who are Constitution-knowledge-and-fealty tested, randomly selected by lottery…”
  9. Petit juries, like grand juries, do not belong to the state justice system, they belong to the people themselves, independently; judges, prosecutors, cops, etc., and defense attorneys are subservient to the petit jury via the foreman, who shall have the benefit of selecting independent counsel for aid and assist in assuring state officials conform to First Principles’ protocol and practice. Petit juries render verdicts based on conscience; they may judge law and fact, and nullify a prosecution at will.
  10. Any county SIGJ or SIGJ-designated special grand jury shall have authority to investigate and indict state public officials for malfeasance applying within their counties. However, the Accountability Act anticipates formation of a sitting state-level grand jury by the same means and adhering to the same founding principles as the county SIGJ. It is anticipated the State SIGJ will also serve as referee for conflicts among county SIGJs or cross-county acts of public official corruption.[1]

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

Guest Column: Where’s the People…

… whose job it is to warn us of these assaults upon the Republic and its people?
And why aren’t they covering the story of the century?
And why aren’t liberty-loving YOU up in arms?

From LostHorizons.com [current ephemeral URL here]

“Stated simply, this is about an effort by the judicial branch of the U.S. government to force Doreen Hendrickson, a U.S. citizen, to commit the crime of perjury.  Because Ms. Hendrickson refused the government order to perjure herself, she was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.  She has served 14 months of her sentence.  She has today been returned to prison to serve the remaining 4 months.  The reason she is being sent back to prison is that she still refuses to commit the crime ordered by the government.”

Shredding Lies And Revealing Powerful Truths, by Pete Hendrickson

A deeper-than-ever descent into corruption by the bad guys offers a better-than-ever opportunity for the good guys.

LAST WEEK’S NEWS-LETTER OPENED with a candid presentation to the world of the outrageous corruption being practiced at very high levels of federal officialdom against my good and beautiful wife, Doreen. Yesterday, I suffered the miserable experience of driving her to a place of imprisonment, more than 500 miles from home—for the second time in three years.

I have little joy in my heart, today; in fact, I have little heart in my chest, today. I have left it in West Virginia.

BUT THERE IS THIS: On Friday, a Motion for Reconsideration was filed in the federal district court under the mantle of which the assault on Doreen has been conducted for these past 5 years. The motion is a sharp-bladed shredding of what it unmistakably-reveals to be the deeply—almost psychopathically—corrupt January 16 denial of the Motion to Vacate Doreen’s engineered conviction which was filed last October.

Brian’s Column: Alderson FPC Turnaround

Tomorrow Doreen Hendrickson Enters for the Final Time in Triumph
By Brian  R. Wright

The federal prison in Alderson, West Virginia, sits in the middle of the mountains of Nowhere, USA. And that’s how the federales like it. Hard to leave. The town itself has some notable history, but the 1927 federal decision to erect a women’s prison there [in step with 18th-Amendment (Prohibition)-generated crimes] was its claim to fame. The feds could still stick women committing no real crime into their cages, but not with male populations to abuse and assault them. Bully for the ’20s reformist legislate morality crowd.

In fact, Alderson was the first US federal women’s prison. And until 2004, when Martha Stewart was doing her five months for lying to federal prosecutors, the facility was designed on the rehabilitation model… as opposed to punishment. After Martha, the state cruelty industry had to turn around the Stewart ‘Camp Cupcake’ image. Thus, inmates no longer dwell in modest cottages on the grounds w/o guarded fences and with substantial self-reliance, rather in two large dormitories where they’re ordered around, well, like prisoners.

Enter Doreen Hendrickson, whose crime, unlike Martha’s, was REFUSING to lie to federal prosecutors and judges. She’ll be finishing up the final four months of her preposterous and contemptible 18-month sentence for the preposterous and contemptible conviction of criminal contempt. Read all about it in this beautiful summary written by her husband, Peter Eric Hendrickson. 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.

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
