IRS Agent Sentenced For Liaisons With Hookers

September 8, 2003

An ex-Southland IRS agent was sentenced Monday to five years in prison for covering up liaisons with hookers, including a 16-year- old who stole a government car, and making an X-rated video with a minor.

Kenneth Philip Fazende, 44, was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge John F. Walter. Fazende pleaded guilty to two federal charges in July.

Fazende, an IRS criminal investigator between 1995 and 2002, admitted he solicited the 16-year-old on Sunset Boulevard on June 21, 2001. He acknowledged that he brought her to his Hollywood apartment, and later left for work with her asleep there.

After the girl awoke, she found the keys to Fazende's unmarked vehicle parked on the street in front of his apartment, then took the car.

Fazende admitted that to conceal the theft, he told the Los Angeles Police Department that his apartment was burglarized, and that an unknown thief had stolen CDs and the keys to the car.

Fazende also admitted to the court that between the summers of 1999 and 2000 he was involved with at least two other prostitutes who worked Sunset Boulevard.

One of those prostitutes stole Fazende's personal car on Aug. 9, 1999, according to the plea agreement.

To cover things up while authorities were looking into the loss of the government vehicle, Fazende lied to investigators and claimed he met the women while working on a preliminary investigation of pimps not paying taxes, prosecutors said.

On May 21 this year, Fazende was arrested in Puerto Rico while arriving from Trinidad, after U.S. Customs agents found a video camera with footage of him and a 17-year-old engaging in sex acts in that country, according to the plea agreement.

Fazende admitted that he hired the girl to make the video, and intended to bring it into the United States.

A search of a residence that Fazende and his brother shared in Chattanooga, Tenn., turned up another video of the girl and Fazende having sex, according to the plea agreement.

Patriot of The Month

In every issue of the e-Patriot Cannon we will select a new Patriot of the Month. These dedicated patriots deserve our recognition for their allegiance and steadfast loyalty to the cause, through the good times and the bad. 

Thank you, Nelson Waller for your persistence efforts and well earned loyalty during this brave battle to fight the enemies. 

The Famous e-Patriot Cannon Interview with Nelson Waller

Who is Nelson Waller?
Nelson Waller is an experienced activist and analyst in the freedom movement. He came to a full knowledge of salvation in Christ during the late 1980s. This prompted him to begin studying the national situation and fighting to save the American republic. He became chairman of the New Jersey Populist Party and ran for Congress on its ticket in 1990. He was untaxed at this time having studied the bedrock issues of taxation and law from the Scriptures, the Constitution, and the Anglo-American legal tradition.

Waller, a Virginia native blessed with many notable "rebel" ancestors, lived most of his life in greater New York. Finally in 1992 an opportunity came for him to return Southward. Robert Clarkson hired him to edit and publish the Patriot Network newsletter, The Patriot Cannon in which he still edits.
 --Presently he is Dr. Clarkson's main assistant in the Southern cause as well as general freedom issues. The fight to safeguard Southern values, history, symbols and so forth and has indeed been paramount in Waller's activities since coming to South Carolina.

As Secretary of the S.C. Council of Conservative Citizens he has been directly involved in preventing liberal demagogues from removing the Confederate flag from the S.C. state house plaza, a major front in the national culture war. He has helped to produce weekly and monthly newspapers dedicated to Southern issues.

Waller is also active in the musical field, in which he holds a master's degree from Bob Jones University.

What are your hobbies when you are not freedom fighting?
The truth is "that" covers virtually all my waking hours. I can't think of anything more enjoyable than freedom fighting. I walk for exercise and re-creation, always with pen and paper in my pocket in case some thought should occur. I do of course love music and collecting tapes and CDs -- especially those available at "patriotic prices", e.g. over eBay.

When and why did you become a patriot? Did someone influence you?
A long and interesting story. I was born with an instinctive but clueless hatred of wrong. We who grew up as baby-boomers in the age of Beatle and tried never to let anything of real importance matter to us, but one day by God's grace I was rummaging through castoff books at a country library and one just jumped out at me -- the "Dispossessed Majority" by Wilmot Robertson. Here at last was ultra-right political writing that was precise yet totally politically incorrect. This led in turn to the publisher's catalog, the author's monthly magazine, the Populist Party, and . . . the Patriot Network!

Everything I discovered turned out to be old hat to my uncle, who carried the flame of patriotic truth forward from my grandfather. My uncle is still living in New York City at age 85. One of my earliest memories is of Grandfather, an M.D., giving us kids Confederate flags when we came to see him in Virginia. He had witnessed the burial of Jefferson Davis in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery as a boy of 10 and once authored a booklet exposing the National Council of Churches.

What are your goals as a patriot for our organization?
To stay the course of fighting the lies and corruption embodied in the literally satanic Federal Reserve/IRS system of human enslavement. Times change, patriot strategies and IRS ploys change, but our dedication to freeing the captives need never change, nor our confidence flag. We need to grow ever firmer in the Gospel if we expect to win the war waged by Satan's agents. Everything we're doing is rooted in the Scriptures and the divine law for human living. We'll succeed insofar as we acknowledge it and work from it.

Name the leaders that you most admire. Tell why. What attributes do you find most attractive in a leader?

Do dead ones count? I hope everyone will read my column about Evangelist Lester Roloff at:
 in my book, the greatest American who ever lived. Among the living, I admire Robert of course, plus Pastor John Weaver, Moneychanger editor Franklin Sanders, Council of Conservative Citizens CEO Gordon Baum, and others whose names should be household words, but won't be anytime in this century.

"We're After Power 
And We Mean It ..."

         Government must
         create criminals

"Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr.
Ferris. "We want them broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against - then you'll know that this is
not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers,  but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it.

There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government
has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't
enough criminals, one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
by Randall G. Shelden

Crime benefits the crime control industry The number of people in American prisons and jails passed 6 million last year. That figure reflects the results of the "get tough,"
ultra-conservative crime polices that began in the early 1970s.
The effect of these policies is that the crime rate today is about the same
as it was in the early '70s. Yet during this same period the incarceration rate has increased by more than 400 percent, while annual expenditures on the criminal justice system went up by 1,500 percent
(approaching $200 billion).
The incarceration rate is now more than 700 per 100,000 population,
higher than any other country in the world.

The rising incarceration rate has done considerable damage to the black
population, as blacks are about eight times more likely than whites to be
locked up. The incarceration rate for women (with minorities leading the
way) has increased the most, going up by more than 700 percent over the past 25 years.

While many researchers have blamed the drug war for this sorry state of affairs, there is another reason for the growth in imprisonment rates, which is less obvious. I am referring to what has
been called the crime control industry. In recent years controlling crime has become a big business, an "industry" like other industries such
as manufacturing and retail trade. Literally thousands of companies are
seeking profits in this booming industry. The criminal justice system alone provides a steady supply of career possibilities for police officers,
prison guards, probation officers and many more. Most of these jobs offer not only good starting pay, but excellent benefits and a promise of future wage increases and job security. The police, the courts and the prison system have become huge, self-serving an self-perpetuating bureaucracies with a vested interest in keeping crime at a certain level. They need victims, they need criminals, they need customers, even if they have to
invent them.

Prison construction is a booming business too. An ad by an investment group states: “While arrests and convictions are steadily on the rise, profits are to be made -- profits from crime. Get in on the ground floor of this booming industry now!”

In a sense, private industry and the criminal justice system cannot afford to put a large dent in the crime problem, because it would have such a negative impact on the industry. Two words sum it up: Politics and economics. Politics, in the sense that elected officials want to be re-elected, and sounding “tough on crime” gets votes; economics in the sense of not only the money to be made by businesses but the number of jobs created.

Part of the problem can be summed up by way of a parable. Imagine a large river with a high waterfall. At the bottom of this waterfall hundreds of people are working frantically trying to save those who have fallen into the river and have fallen down the waterfall, many of them drowning. As the people along the shore are trying to rescue as many as possible, one individual looks up and sees a seemingly never-ending stream of people falling down the waterfall, and he begins to run upstream. One of his fellow rescuers hollers “Where are you going? There are so many people who need help here.” To which the man replies, “I'm going upstream to find out why so many people are falling into the river.”

Now imagine the scene at the bottom of the waterfall represents the criminal justice system, responding to crimes that have been committed and dealing with both victims and offenders. If you look more closely, you will begin to notice there are more people at the bottom of the stream, that they work in relatively new buildings with all sorts of modern technology and that those working here get paid rather well, with excellent benefits. The money keeps flowing into this area, with all sorts of businesses lined up to provide various services and technical assistance. If you look upstream, you will find something far different. There are not too many people, the buildings are not as modern, nor is the technology. The people working there do not get paid very much and their benefits are not as good as those provided down below. Nor do they find businesses coming their way with assistance. They are constantly having to beg for money.

A researcher, writing about our health care system, observed that capitalism “finds it more profitable to treat illness rather than prevent it.”

He notes that “preventive care measures, such as decent sewage and water systems, draining swamps near cities, education, sanitary food handling, and holistic health practices bring little in terms of profits for pharmaceutical companies or the larger capitalist system.” The American medical industry has a financial stake in treating rather than preventing diseases.

If we pretend for a moment that crime is a disease (in a way it is), then this analogy makes perfect sense. Simply put, reacting to crime is far more profitable for business and other interests than preventing crime. Our criminal justice system is designed to fail to reduce crime, because, although citizens would be greatly benefited from less crime (just as citizens would greatly benefit from fewer health problems), the crime control industry would not benefit. If you want a lower crime rate, you must spend more money upstream. In order to do this, however, the interests that now control the criminal justice system would have to be convinced that there is a larger profit to be made from investing upstream, rather than downstream.

Taxman Song 
by D.E Cummings

We'll tax his pay, we'll tax his play, 
yes we'll even tax his time of day-

We'll tax his shirt, we'll tax his coat, 
we'll tax his car, we'll tax his boat-

We'll tax his food, we'll tax his drink, we'll tax him so he can't think!

We'll tax his house...even tax his chair, by taking his comb we'll tax his hair!

Taxing his pills...we'll tax his health, with taxes on taxes we'll steal his wealth!

Then when he's sick...we'll tax his bed, we'll tax him good 'til he's good and dead!

Then we'll have this put upon his tomb, "Taxes drove me crazy and to my doom!"

When he's dead we won't relax, we'll steal his kid's home with inheritance tax!

We'll do to his kids what we did to him, they won't sue us for our royal $haft sin!

We're so bold, we stole the silver and gold,  
we're sold out cheap and we won't weep!

We @ the internal robbery squad service 'r hard to beat;   
we're cold in heart, we love to cheat, 
and we stick it to you from the very start!

FDR's New-Bad Deal!
by Larry Leitge

Many times when I look at my world around me, I see a world where it is becoming harder and harder to make an honest living.

I look at the troubles in my own life and attribute it to not knowing "how the real world works." Then I look around me and see all the ways our dishonest government rewards dishonest people... and I get angry.

Robert Clarkson explained it so well in his lesson on Franklin D. Roosevelt and farm quotas/subsidies. The following is a summary of his lesson:

F.D.R. decided that he was going to help out the tobacco industry and that he could accomplish this by raising the price of tobacco. (Whether he chose to out of the desire to be a do-gooder or out of the desire to pay back some political favors or the combination thereof will probably never be truly known.). F.D.R.'s understanding of the laws of supply and demand allowed him to understand that in order to raise prices, one has to either increase demand or lower supply. His decision was to decrease supply and he did so through government mandated
So the edict came down from government and every farmer was told how much tobacco he could grow. To be fair, the government in return would promise money in the form of a subsidy to these farmers to not grow this crop -- money taken from hard working citizens in other industries. And so the following year, F.D.R. achieved what he set out to do: tobacco production went down and the price of tobacco went up. But F.D.R.'s goals were only achieved if you take on a president's birds eye point of view. What did F.D.R. really achieve?
Clarkson went on to explain that he had an "uncle" in the business. This uncle was shrewd enough to recognize that any quota
F.D.R. would set would be based on current "production" levels. So this uncle -- as many
other shrewd business people would -- went out and purchased or rented cheap land (sometimes swamp land) and planted
tobacco here and there never really caring if it was ever harvested or even grew. And so when these quotas became law, this uncle continued to harvest tobacco as usual (minus some swamp land of course). In fact, the only difference was that now the price of tobacco was higher.
Now what did F.D.R. really achieve here? What he achieved was to hurt the honest mom and pop farm who either was unable or
unwilling to play these government games. The only people who grew less tobacco was the honest man focused on his farm's production and obeying the law rather than how to get around these outside political
And what else did F.D.R. really achieve? For one, he created the need for a bloated bureaucracy to enforce his rules and regulations. For two, he put men into positions of power over others where they were subject to potential bribes.
F.D.R. achieved his goals for that year: production was down and price was up. The following year, farmers saw that the price of tobacco was higher so the creative among them were motivated to find new ways around these government regulations. As a result, production went up, and the price came down.

NOW what is a president to do? In the face of losing face on his promises, there was only one thing he could do: increase the quotas! And so he did.
Today our government is poised to spend at least $171 billion on direct farm subsidies over the next decade, most of which is paid to farmers not to grow certain crops. This does not include all the money that is spent enforcing these government mandated quotas. Moreover, government subsidies to our farmers are only the beginning. Then there is Social [in]Security, Unemployment, Housing and Urban "Development," business
"incentive" programs, Welfare (which is neither well nor fair)...and the list goes on and on. All these programs appear to accomplish good on the surface, but underneath each one has its swamp land, a morass of shrewd people who are able and willing to steal from the rich and the poor
alike and give to themselves.
When I look at the world around me, I don't interpret what I see to be "how the real world works." Instead, I see it as "how the real government works!" The way I see it, if you are not willing to connive or bully others out of their hard earned money (especially tax money),  then you need to learn to keep your head down while you work for a company or government agency that is willing and able to connive or bully others. If you are not willing to do either, then your chances of making a living is virtually nil. Jesus predicted so long ago that  "[b]ecause of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow  cold." (Matthew 24:12). Proverbs 13:23 says "Much food is in the tilled land of the poor, but there are those who are destroyed because of  injustice."

Our government today is a government that uses injustice to destroy the fields of the poor and so the love of most is growing cold.

 Many times images of "The Ghetto" in Nazi Germany from various movies float through my head where many were sent to live, some because they were Jews, others because they were crippled, others because they were poor and unproductive in the eyes of their government. I see the images of many honest, hard working people forced to scrounge for an ever diminishing food supply while their guards on every level routinely
accepted bribes. And I wonder, Is this happening here in America?

Additional Action Needed to Eliminate Illegal Tax Protestor Designation

Reference Number: 2000-10-119

The Frivolous Return Program is designed to address taxpayers using frivolous arguments to avoid tax compliance.

Although the RRA 98 directs the IRS to not designate taxpayers as 'Illegal Tax Protestor's', the IRS determined  that it must still address individuals and businesses who do not comply with the law by purposely making arguments that are not legally valid to avoid the payment of taxes.

The IRS created the Frivolous Return Program to address this tax compliance issue. The Director of the Rocky Mountain District is the executive in charge of the design for this program.

The Internal Revenue Code provides for a specific penalty related to frivolous tax returns. The foundation of this program is to improve the consistency of taxpayer treatment by centralizing correspondence, education, and tax enforcement actions.

The plans for this program include the use of transaction codes to identify taxpayers who file invalid, frivolous tax returns or send frivolous correspondence and have not complied with filing requirements. These codes will be used to assist in compliance efforts and to initiate educational outreach.

Compliance efforts will include reviews to determine whether the taxpayer has met filing and payment requirements. Educational outreach will include sending correspondence to the taxpayers addressing the legal precedents and the ramifications of using their specific arguments to avoid complying with the tax law.

It is possible that this new program will be perceived to be similar to the old Illegal Tax Protestor  Program because it can address some of the same taxpayers and compliance issues. However, the IRS’ plans are that the new program will address taxpayers who use frivolous arguments to avoid paying taxes.

The IRS also plans to institute controls that ensure codes will be reversed for taxpayers who are compliant with the tax law for 2 consecutive years. This should prevent the use of a permanent label that could stigmatize taxpayers after they become compliant. A future TIGTA review will address this program as it becomes operational.

Fiscal Year 2003 Statutory Audit of Compliance With Legal Guidelines Prohibiting the Use of Illegal Tax
Protester and Similar Designations

April 2003

Reference Number: 2003-40-098 Prior to enactment of the RRA 98, taxpayers were referred to the Illegal Tax Protestor Program when their tax returns or correspondence contained specific indicators of noncompliance with the tax law, such as the use of arguments that had been repeatedly rejected by the courts. Once a taxpayer’s account was coded as an Illegal Tax Protestor, certain tax enforcement actions were accelerated. The designation was also intended to alert IRS employees to be cautious so they would not be drawn into confrontations.

RRA 98 § 3707 prohibits the IRS from referring to taxpayers as Illegal Tax Protestor or any similar designations. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is required to annually evaluate the IRS’ compliance with the prohibition on the use of Illegal Tax Protestor or any similar designations.

In summary, the IRS has not reintroduced past Illegal Tax Protestor codes on the Master File, and formerly coded Illegal Tax Protestor taxpayer accounts have not been reassigned to a similar Illegal Tax Protestor designation. In addition, the IRS does not have any current publications with ITP references.

In response to our Fiscal Year (FY) 2002 recommendations, the IRS has taken steps to remove the ITP references from its Internal Revenue Manual (IRM). However, IRS employees continue to make references to taxpayers as ITPs and other similar designations in case narratives. Since the IRS has taken interim action on these issues, we believe that no further
recommendations are needed at this time.

Our review showed the rights of 321 taxpayers were potentially affected due to improper designations……………

Management’s Response: The Acting Commissioner, Small Business/Self-Employed Division, stated that the IRS has taken all of the necessary actions to comply with the Congressional intent of RRA 98 § 3707 by eliminating the ITP designation from its systems, the IRM, and publications. The IRS has stated, based on an opinion by IRS Chief Counsel, that notations in case histories to taxpayers as “tax protestors” and other similar designations are not “designations” within the meaning of the law. According to the IRS, to be a prohibited “designation,” there must be an intent to set apart that person for a purpose, such as denying the taxpayer an administrative opportunity that is available to other taxpayers. Merely making references to taxpayers or their actions does not constitute a “designation” because those taxpayers continue to receive the same administrative remedies as all other taxpayers.


Famous Quotes by Former
President Ronald Reagan

“Our Federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counter-productive. The present tax system of taxation reeks with injustice and is fundamentally Un-American, its earned a rebellion and it is time that we rebelled.”
“Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.”
“Our system of taxation has turned into something completely foreign to our nature - something complicated, unfair, and in a fundamental sense, un-American. Well my friends, the time has come for a second revolution. We the people must unite. Those who have been elected to positions of public trust must show true leadership and political courage. For the sake of our strength and prosperity as a nation, but most of all for the sake of our families, we must take this next step toward freedom.”
