SUCCESSFUL TEA PARTY IN COLUMBIA -- IRS Cooperates
by Nelson Waller
Many of you know what a "Tea Party" is in terms of our lawful Patriot
Network tax resistance, but for those that don't it's simply a gathering of
our kind of people at the home of a patriot when an IRS interview is
The idea is to show the agent that we the people, know our
rights -- one of which is to see whatever law or code section makes us
liable for "income taxes" before signing any return. (We never sign
returns, but make this demand of agents when they are on the point of
demanding a return!) Tea Party Details are found in an old Greenville News
article, "TAX REBEL" PUTS IRS ON THE RUN, on page 6 of the famous Patriot
Network publication you all should have handy at all times --
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE RETURN TO CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT.
Normally we seat ourselves around a picnic table in the patriot's front
yard with the sun in the agent's eyes. Tea and lemonade are served; all are
asked to join in a prayer and (formerly) a pledge to the Yankee flag. Both
sides attempt to checkmate the other -- we with facts, they with bluff and
intimidation -- and our side invariably wins. Today's Tea Party, , as
announced in recent egroup messages, was held at the home of a patriot
couple in Blythewood (Columbia), SC.
The Great One has just called to let me know it was a grand success. He had
called earlier to allow me the most welcome opportunity to ask her some
pointed questions, which I did for about ten minutes (see bottom of this
page). Our practice is to strategically connect agents with the public over
the basic issues -- a "moment of truth" which would otherwise never occur.
We would have done the same with the American Gandhi, Gene Chapman (see his
interview in latest issue of the e-Patriot Cannon digital newsletter at our
site) but he could not be reached.
The Great One reports that "the Party lasted two hours and ten minutes and
everybody had a good time. The agent, Carla Gatling, asked some questions
and heard many of ours. There were crumpets and tea and our usual Tea Party
"Everybody here got to ask questions of the IRS agent; we presented her
with a copy of the Citizens Rule Book.* The original American peacetime
flag of President John Adams was presented to her by famed PN videographer
"A good time was had by all. I read the agent the First Amendment and
explained it to her; Brother Larry [a regular PN associate from GA] read
and explained numerous Bible verses to her."
See PN website soon for pictures, full details and stories, which will also
be enjoyed at local PN meetings. Attend PN meetings -- sign up your friends
for our useful and effective programs -- participate!
A real Tea Party today in the SC capitol area!
During the TEA PARTY Dr Clarkson called via cell phone tthe gifted reporter and writer Nelson Waller of Anderson SCV who then interviewed the tax collector, thusly:
My conversation with agent Gatling was fairly cordial and low key. To the
best of my recollection, it went like this:
NW: Miss, please tell us why the IRS refuses to specify what law makes
working people liable for taxes on their "wages, salaries, tips and other
CG: What do you mean?
NW: We have repeatedly asked the "service" -- both individual agents like
yourself and your headquarters in Washington, DC and other major cities
across the country -- what law requires us to file taxes on our wages but
we NEVER get an answer. They just tell us "courts have ruled you owe the
money" but refuse to give specifics." Why is that?
CG: I'm not going to comment on what others than have or haven't said about
NW: Then will you please give us your answer?
CG: On what?
NW On what law makes us liable for "income taxes."
CG: I don't have that information.
NW: All right, please tell us what section OF THE IR CODE makes us liable.
CG: I don't happen to know what section it is.
NW: See? That's how it goes. Wouldn't you agree that if neither you nor
your agency can give us this information something's seriously wrong with
what you're doing?
CG: I can't comment on what the agency does.
NW: Well, since you can't give the information we need today, will you give
it to us in writing if I send you a formal request for it?
NW: What is your address?
CG: 1835 Assembly St., MDP 23, Columbia, SC 29201.
[I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT A NUMBER OF YOU WRITE HER AND RE-WRITE HER UNTIL WE GET A STRAIGHT ANSWER. THIS ARTICLE WILL SOON ALSO BE POSTED AS A "DIXIE DIARY" INSTALLMENT AT THE WEBSITE OF THE NATIONALIST TIMES -- ANU.ORG.]
