War Against Federal Tyranny And The Misapplication of Income Tax

We The People, fighting to return America to rule of law under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Merry Christmas to me!
I received in the mail from the state of Minnesota a tax lien filing. Wow, how could they be so benevolent at this most joyous time of the year?

This all started out when they asked me why I hadn't filed returns for '95, '96, '97. And I told them that I was not required to file a return according to Minnesota Department of Revenue guidelines because I am not required to file a federal income tax return. They then conjured up some dummy returns (not legal), sent them to me along with a tax bill. I wrote them another letter explaining that these dummy returns were invalid and I was not required to file. Their only response was to send another presentment with more interest and penalties. (No due process here)

They finally found my employer and filed a third party levy on my wages. I would have filed a suit against my employer if I didn't like them so well. And I may still have to which would be most unfortunate. (No due process here)

At any rate, I just received a letter that there is now a tax lien against my property (no specific property is listed, however). The figures are based on the presentments they've been sending me about their idea of my tax bill. (No due process here either).

I'm going to file a UCC 1 and find out just what the hell they have filed against me. If the lien is filed, I will have to get a hearing with the tax court (executive branch administrative court) and in all likelihood I will end up in district court (legislative branch) with these extortionist bastards.


Stay tuned! I may be the next guy asking for donations for my defense fund.

I received an email
with this awesome story attached. This one can bring tears to your eyes when you view God's love and man's love for his fellowman.

A man from Norfolk, VA called a local radio station to share this
on Sept 11th, 2003. His Name was Robert Matthews. These are his words:

"A few weeks before Sept 11th, my wife and I found out we were going
to have our first child. She planned a trip out to California to visit
her sister. On our way to the airport, we prayed that God would grant my wife a
Safe trip and be with her. Shortly after I said 'amen' we both heard a
loud pop and the car shook violently. we had blown out a tire. I
replaced the tire as quickly as I could, but we still missed her flight.
Both very upset, we drove home.

I received a call from my father who was retired FDNY. He asked what
My wife's flight number was, but I explained that we missed the flight.
My father informed me that her flight was the one that crashed into
The Southern Tower. I was too shocked to speak. My father also had more
News for me; he was going to help. 'This is not something I can just sit by for, I have to do something.' I was concerned for his safety, of course, but more because he had never given his life to Christ. After a brief debate, I knew his mind was made up. Before he got off of the phone, he said, 'take good care of my grandchild.' Those were
the last words I ever heard my father say; he died while helping in the rescue effort.
My joy that my prayer of safety for my wife had been answered quickly became anger. Anger at God, at my father, and at myself.

I had gone for nearly 2 years blaming God for taking my father away. My son would never know his grandfather, my father had never accepted Christ, and I never got to say good-bye. Then something happened.

About 2 months ago, I was sitting at home with my wife and my son, when there was a knock on the door. I looked at my wife, but I could tell she wasn't expecting anyone. I opened the door to a couple with a small child. The man looked at me and asked if my father's name was Jake Matthews. I told him it was. He quickly grabbed my hand and said, 'I never got the chance to meet your father, but it is an honor to meet his son.' He explained to me that his wife had worked in the World Trade
Center and had been caught inside after the attack. She was pregnant and had been caught under debris. He then explained that my father had been the one to find his wife and free her.

My eyes welled up with tears as I thought of my father giving his life for people like this. He then said, 'there is something else you need to know.' His wife then told me that as my father worked to free her, she talked to him and lead him to Christ. I began sobbing at the news. Now I know that when I get to heaven, my father will be standing beside Jesus to welcome me, and that this family would be able to thank
him themselves. "

When their baby boy was born, they named him Jacob Matthew in honor of the man who gave his life so mother and baby could live.

This story should help us to realize two things: First, that though it has been two years since the attacks, we should never let it become a mere tragic memory. And second, but most important, God is always in control. We may not see the reason behind things, and we may never know this side of heaven, but God is ALWAYS in control.

Please take time to share this amazing story with those you love. You may never know the impact it may have on someone.




An Urgent Call To LawfulGov.Org
I am making a personal and urgent call to Allen Hacker to immediately start a campaign in opposition to H.R. 2417 and the Patriot Act(s). Further, I am calling for LawfulGov.Org to start a campaign to "unratify" or unhinge the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

What do you say, Allen? I say - We may die trying but after the holidays lets roll! THIS IS A MUST ACT SITUATION!

As I reflect
on the celebration that's about to occur this holiday season with my family, I can't help but think about those in the tax freedom and constitutional restoration movements who are being detained illegally and whose detention poses serious questions because of the lack of due process. They may not see family at all this week. They won't be home with their families this Christmas.

These men and women are truly my heroes. They have not knuckled under to the threats and tyranny of various governmental bodies that bully them and hold them hostage. They have stayed the course. They continue in a fight for freedom that most of us would not subject ourselves to. Untold hours alone in the sullen darkness of a 6X10 cell. Alone with only their thoughts.

A couple of examples: Dick Simkanin - who has only followed the internal revenue laws as he understood them and who has spent 6 months in prison with NO explanation of the law(s) he has supposedly broken. If he followed the tyrants' arguments then he surely would have to go against what the statutes actually say all the while his captors will not tell him specifically how he should follow which statutes and specifically then which ones he has broken.

Rick Stanley - who is being held because the mile high city of Denver is a "home rule" city and therefore those folks believe they can supersede the constitutions of Colorado and the United States! Wow, look what happens when the servants get a big head and say "To hell with those old documents! We know what is best for you! Don't argue with us, don't bring those stupid documents up in our courtroom or we will jail you!" This all stems from the audacious Mr. Stanley believing in his unalienable right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Colorado and U.S. constitutions. How dare he?! OK let's all kneel and sing praise and worship to the City of Denver and other obnoxious cities and townships while we forget about those stupid old documents.

Joe Banister - who gave up a promising career with the IRS when he found he couldn't live with the lie. And for standing up to the persecution of his former employer and speaking his mind and the truth to anyone who would listen.

There are many others like Schiff, Rose, Lear and many others who have paid a hefty price and continue to fight the fight regardless of the consequences they face. They will NOT be beaten. And there are thousands of us who in one way or another have our own stories to tell about our run-ins with tyrant government bodies. As long as WE stay the course, support the movement, support the leaders and heroes, support each other and never shut up, never give up - WE WILL WIN THIS WAR ONE BATTLE AT A TIME.

Please take a moment this holiday season and pray for those of us who are political prisoners. Those who are stolen away to become mere "examples" and who will not be allowed to be with their families. Pray for the fall of all tyrant(s) who would choose to try to oppress us - now and forever!

I just finished
writing a letter of support to Dick Simkanin and a letter to Judge McBryde - (below). If any of you have been putting this off, I pray that you will find a moment to write Dick Simkanin in support of him and a letter letting Judge McBryde know that we are watching his every move in this case.

I stated here about a month ago that I thought that the absolute focus and support of Dick Simkanin and Joe Banister NOW were of the utmost importance. If we help these two men be successful in their hearings (cases) we will, as a group, have set a precedent and hit an absolute milestone in the tax freedom movement.

Please send your support - financial, spiritual - to Dick Simkanin today!

McBryde Letter

December 21, 2003

Dear Judge John McBryde,

I have been following your judicial behavior and treatment of an unconvicted political prisoner, Mr. Dick Simkanin. I want you to know that I pray that you will come to realize that we are supposed to be on the same team, under the same laws, under the same constitution. Unfortunately, your treatment of Mr. Simkanin seems harsh, most unusual, most prejudiced. In fact, so far, it would appear that the government attorneys and you, Judge McBryde, have some ulterior and villainous motives going on here.

I pray that you will come to your senses, seek your heart for truth. It is time for the IRS to prove their case. It is time to show your fellow Americans that you are willing to see to Mr. Simkanin’s due process rights, allow his proper defense and make the plaintiff prove their case and that you will settle for nothing less. That you will not allow a perverted version of justice to happen to Mr. Simkanin.

We The People ask, in fact demand that you adhere to your oath of office and uphold the U.S. Constitution. We The People will settle for nothing less.

Now, whether you give a damn about this letter or not is of little consequence, however, I think it is fair that you know that there are hundreds of thousands of us across America watching this case. We know that it is unlikely that the mass media will promote the truth in this matter but we will be camping on their doorsteps until they listen and provide the truth! Be aware that we will be camping on the courthouse steps and in your courtroom. We will be filling the internet witht the facts in this case once again. We are strong, we are pissed, we are organized, we are watching and we are ready to take action to uncover and further reveal the unscrupulous and clandestine tyranny that we face. If we need to add your name to the list of unfavorable judges in the land so be it. If we need to see to your absolute dismissal from the bench, so be it.

By the way, if you have bothered to seek the facts in this case – and I’m sure you must have, then you know that Mr. Simkanin is innocent and the IRS is wrong in this matter because they have yet to enter into the record the exact statutes that Mr. Simkanin is accused of breaking.
