Patriots put PN Principles to Work in Tax Court

By e-Patriot Canon editor Nelson Waller

It was like a convention. People were streaming into the large, imposing building on the spacious downtown boulevard. At the door to the main room, old friends were greeting each other and new acquaintances were being made.

But this was no convention—­it was tax court day in Columbia , SC.

Nevertheless a warm, hopeful atmosphere prevailed. That's the way it is in the freedom movement—­when you know you've got the law on your side and have done your homework carefully, it changes everything, especially when Dr. Clarkson is helping you and you're among trusted compatriots. It seemed that five or six patriots under his tutelage were due for a "treatment" that day. Many had no idea what to expect aside from the obvious fact that state and federal governments are predatorial, even cannibalistic, toward citizens today.

I had never been to tax court before, and was immediately struck by the banality of it all. It had the feel of a great sheep-shearing operation. There were layers of lawyers whose only goal was clearly to help the court turn the "taxpayers" upside down and shake them. When the session began, it turned out a judge was presiding who mumbled the whole time.

This was the second or third time I had seen a court run by a mumbling judge who was inaudible — and even worse­—seemed almost proud of the fact. I don't pretend to understand this. The courtroom was small and all one had to do was speak in a normal conversational tone to be heard clearly. But this the judge refused. I asked the clerk of court during the first break if a microphone could be set up for him and politely protested that neither the defendants nor their lawyers nor observers from the public like me could hear him worth a hoot. She said she would look into it.

I asked what the microphone already on the bench by the judge was for, and she replied that it was only for recording the proceedings. The rest of the day, of course, was no different. I try to be decent and objective about things, but really, for cases to be heard by judges who are indifferent or defiant over the matter of whether they can be heard is a sign that something is very wrong.

Several "regular" cases were heard, and then the tax patriots. I am acquainted with several of the intended sacrificial victims. All handled themselves very well considering they're not used to being put on the block to answer for the crime of making a living.  One was of especial note, being an old friend of mine through the movement and surely the least fit to endure the IRS's rack and thumbscrew ­Henr y Patriot

Henry is 87 years old. He lives alone because his wife is in a nursing facility. He is understandably slow-moving and hard of hearing and his house burned down a couple of years ago. Did His Honor speak up for the benefit of his fellow oldster? Not a bit. Henry had trouble standing up, hearing the judge and even hearing the prosecuting/persecuting lawyer, J. Craig Young, standing next to him trying to get the judge to finish Henry off. Henry repeatedly asked them to speak more clearly but they didn't care to explain why not.

Young was a fussbudget with an air of quiet hysteria about him. When he saw that your editor was taking pictures of the session, he bawled to the court that Clarkson must be stopped because "our pictures are going to appear on his website tonight!" What a ridiculous notion -- see end of this article for the outcome.

Henry's case was the first one up after the first break. The judge thankfully agreed to let Henry's friend Chris sit with him at the sacrificial victims' table and help him with his papers.

From there I'm sorry to say things went downhill. The judge and lawyers talked to Henry like a common criminal, even challenging him on whether he was actually married. I believe the result Dr. Clarkson helped him and some others achieve was a gain of some critically useful time in the process of their cases through the system. The court overall showed the imprint of the new world order and thoroughly yankeefied ideas of ethics and decorum. I'm sorry for them that they lack the basic humanity to give a man a break in Henry's position. I believe that not only is his case legally out of their reach on a great many counts, but that in no other "civilized" country would he even be bothered—­ even if still technically liable.

The same one lawyer got most or all of the patriots' cases. He was a fussbudget­—one is tempted to say a colicky baby­—who caused a scene when he initially saw Dr. Clarkson enter the room that morning. Dr. Clarkson politely but firmly explained that he, as a citizen in good standing, had the right to go and be wherever the law allowed­—including right there. The lawyer's nerves were wrecked and he moped about the courtroom acting like a cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. His voice waxed shrill and his shirttails hung out while addressing the judge.

As I said I freely took pictures of the hearings with my cell phone, which makes no sound and has no flash. This was finally noticed by two of the lawyers up front (it took them long enough, I was sitting right in front of them) and they immediately started hollering to the judge about it. The judge asked me what I was doing. I answered that I hadn't known it was against the rules (which it isn't, by the way) and had already put the phone away. The judge looked at me, dumfounded. The lawyers bleated at the judge to confiscate the phone.

Anything could have happened, but the judge ordered me to leave instead. As I did, the two lawyers bleated "and take your phone with you" ­- excitedly and sassily, in perfect mock indignation. Evidently they had never seen artists drawing courtroom scenes as they happen. The rule against cameras is a relic from when they had to have flashes and made noises.

The session after lunch was very short. The defendants went home having added much valuable experience to the teaching they've gotten from Dr. Clarkson about proper procedure—­and confident, overall, of the law vindicating them in due time.

Dr. Clarkson got home from the day's events and immediately posted the pictures on the website. He said he felt an obligation to do so since lawyer Craig Young had cried that he was going to. A true leader lives up to people's highest expectations!


Major Phone Companies Gouge Customers for Do-Gooder Schemes and the Spanish-American War

In a recent issue we urged people to cut the umbilical cord to BellSouth and other anti-American phone companies because of the bizarre and unjust taxes they lay on customers. We focused on one, the “Al Gore tax,” but didn't have the space to go into much detail. Now we present to you some details on this tax and a yet more bizarre one, the Spanish-American War telephone tax.
Politicians are like cockroaches. They often work silently where nobody thinks to look for them but make awful messes. Al Gore is a perfect case in point. This filthy rich unindicted Clinton accomplice and utopian socialist is constantly looking for chances to play the great humanitarian with your money. The Al Gore Tax is in fact a pure do-gooder scheme with no basis in reality. It amounts to telephone users contributing a small amount each month to help pay for computers in schools and libraries.
As Dr. Clarkson is fond of saying in his lectures on this subject, the brilliant deduction which followed next was that schools and libraries – often funded to the max by local bureaucrats wanting to be heroes “for the children” – already have computers. Does this mean the tax was dropped? Not on our life. Like all socialist schemes it's a lot easier to add than to get rid of. That is, until you get with the Patriot Network program and learn how.
Al Gore is the political grandchild of one of the most evil of all 20 th -century communist figures – “American” tycoon Armand Hammer, who made a gift of millions of dollars to the nascent Soviet Union , thus helping to save the communist behemoth from the fate it richly deserved soon after its bloody birth. So it figures that socialist schemes, not purging government of its mafia qualities, were Al's top priority as Vice President.
Fortunately, in addition to the Patriot Network offering you opportunities to secede from the Bell system (the main perpetrator of the Gore tax), politicians are at work from time to time on repealing the tax. Here is a webpage on its move to the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee less than a year ago. Feel free to use it to contact the politicians involved and urge them to complete the process very soon.
Outstanding libertarian columnist Walter Williams wrote an article on the Gore tax aptly nailing it as un-Constitutional:
Vice President Al Gore, aided and abetted by Jay Rockefeller (D.-W.Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R.-Maine), fought for and succeeded in amending the Telecommunications Act of 1996 so that a universal services fund was created to subsidize telecommunications services for schools, libraries and rural health care providers.
The subsidies that go into the fund are collected by way of a charge on residential and commercial telephone bills, an e-rate tax that has become popularly known as the "Gore tax."
In a May 1997 order, the Federal Communications Commission ordered telephone companies to start making universal service "contributions" for the social good of wiring schools and libraries to the Internet. In 1999, -the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), not Congress, raised the federal telephone e-rate tax by 73%.
Do you see anything wrong with this picture? You should………….

Our headline about the Spanish-American War is no joke. Believe it or not, phone customers are paying a tax intended to pay down the expenses involved in the fedgov's feckless and ill-founded 1893 war against Spain ! It seems the Al Gores of the 1890s were quite far-seeing, but not in terms of great positive vision for the still-young nation. A Congressman from the Free State , New Hampshire , reveals below that this tax is levied on everyone who has a phone, and has proudly voted to abolish it. We applaud him and pray that this effort, too, picks up steam very soon.

Bass Votes to Eliminate the Spanish-American War Telephone Tax
Bill Would Mean Lower Phone Bills


Washington , D.C. - U.S. Representative Charles Bass (R-NH02) voted today to eliminate the Spanish-American War telephone tax paid by every New Hampshire resident with a phone. The Second District Republican supported the Phone Tax Repeal Act (H.R. 3916) which passed the House 420-2.

“This bill would repeal an out of date tax that was enacted in 1898 to finance the Spanish-American War,” said Bass. “The war ended that same year, but the telephone tax has endured several attempts over the years to phase it out or scale it back.

“What was a luxury tax 100 years ago has become a regressive burden on one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy and hits every family in this country with a telephone including a dedicated Internet telephone line,” continued the three-term Congressman. “Repealing this bill would encourage growth in the advanced communications sectors and give all Americans a break on their phone bills.”

In 1898, the Spanish-American War telephone tax amounted to a penny on long-distance phone calls costing more than 15 cents. Over the years, Congress made it a permanent three percent tax on telecommunications services - including telephone service for consumers. This bill would reduce the tax by one percent a year……….

Clarkson's colleagues interviewed, lauded in new movie by top Hollywood producer

Freedom is on the loose -- and there's nothing they can do to stop it. Now the reality of present-day fedgov tyranny and IRS illegality are the subject of a documentary by one of the big names in movie and pop music production -- Aaron Russo. And living freedom heroes you've heard from in person at PN meetings or seen photographed in this newsletter are the "stars" of the production!

Aaron Russo is that rare bird among entertainment figures -- a celebrity who crosses over into the real world, i.e. ours, where things that really matter are discussed freely and much-worshiped myths of the day are punctured. Miracles do happen -- and we're glad they do. The government, the media, and most of America 's other large institutions typically deride freedom principles (and the idea that government is at war against the people) as "crackpot conspiracy theories " or "right-wing nut paranoia," and now the truth of tax freedom and the rule of law are going "mainstream."

Mr. Russo is in fact a major Libertarian figure with a long political resume already behind him. He has run for governor of NV as a Republican and stumped for the Libertarian nomination for president of the USA . and His new movie is called America: From Freedom to Fascism . Enjoy the following review and the short biography which follows. We're against the kind of cultural decadence in which he's spent most of his professional life, and who knows, perhaps he is too now, or will be after a few more years in the real world!

America : From Freedom to Fascism. Watch for it


by Mark Yannone
January 28, 2006

I went to see the prescreening of Aaron Russo's latest movie, America: From Freedom to Fascism , at the Hilton Phoenix Airport last night. It was a powerful and engaging film that received a well-deserved standing ovation from the group of about 120 adults in attendance, most of who were over 30.

The two major topics were the federal income tax and the Federal Reserve. Minor topics were the New World Order, vote fraud, education, government lies, and the police state. The ending contained a call to action that Russo promised will be significantly enhanced in the final edition.

A couple of members of the audience mentioned in the subsequent Q&A session that they were not aware of most of what was presented. An Arizona State University teacher said her students were largely unaware also.

The good news is that everyone in the room was apparently persuaded by the testimony given by the members of the Tax Honesty Movement and good folks like G Edward Griffin. The scenes with Irwin Schiff, Joe Banister, John Turner, Sherry Jackson Peel, Larken Rose, Charlie Beale, Bob Schulz, Dave Champion, Vernie Kuglin, and others were particularly powerful and persuasive. The feds definitely stink on ice in this movie-- as well they might.

Bottom line: Aaron Russo has earned his place in the preferred section of Heaven with this film, and the nation owes him a large debt of gratitude for having produced it. Eliciting cheers and tears from the audience, America: From Freedom to Fascism is so moving and effective that I wouldn't be surprised to read that Aaron Russo committed suicide by stabbing himself in the back four times before the train hit him, and all copies of the movie have mysteriously vanished.

However, if Aaron Russo and the movie survive until the final release, we should expect to find America: From Freedom to Fascism in theaters this summer. For anyone over the age of reason, including the 67 million Americans who no longer file federal income tax returns, missing this movie will be a costly mistake.

Watch for it.

Russo ran for governor of Nevada as a Republican in 1998 , coming in second in the party primary with 26% of the vote against three opponents. He then endorsed the Democratic candidate, Las Vegas mayor Jan Laverty Jones , over his primary opponent Kenny Guinn . Guinn won the general election. Russo subsequently split from the Republican Party. He planned to run for governor again in 2002 as a Libertarian , but he was temporarily sidelined by cancer .

In January of 2004 , he declared his candidacy for the Libertarian Party's nomination for President of the United States , and was considered a leading candidate for the nomination .

At the Convention in May, Russo won a plurality on the first two ballots, but not a majority . He was defeated on the third and final ballot by nominee Michael Badnarik by a vote of 423-344.



IRS Is Sued on Failure to Release Tax Data


Records showing how thoroughly the Internal Revenue Service audits big corporations and the rich, and how much it discounts the additional taxes assessed after audits, are being withheld from the public despite a 1976 court order requiring their disclosure, according to a legal motion filed last week in federal court in Seattle.

For decades, the information was given at no charge to a professor at Syracuse University , Susan B. Long, who made it available on the Internet at trac.syr.edu , with tools for people to conduct their own analyses.

Much of what the public knows about the efficiency, effectiveness and evenhandedness of the revenue service and other big federal agencies is based on the figures that Professor Long collects and posts.

In May 2004, the service told her that it would not provide the information and ordered its statisticians to stop answering her questions. It also advised her that if it ever did make the data public again, the information would cost $12,000 a month to receive electronic copies.

Professor Long, whose suit resulted in the court order in 1976, when she lived in Seattle , asked the federal court there to enforce that order, which instructed that the data be turned over without charge. Eric M. Stahl of Davis Wright Tremaine in Seattle , who is handling the case without charge, said the earliest hearing date would be Jan. 27.

The senior national spokesman for the tax agency, Frank Keith, wrote to Professor Long in June 2004 that he had lawyers examine her assertion that the agency was required to provide the data. After extensive research, Mr. Keith wrote, the lawyers concluded that no court order existed and that "accordingly, the I.R.S. is not in violation of any standing injunctions."

Professor Long responded by sending Mr. Keith a copy of the order. Mr. Keith said no one now at the agency was aware of it.

"We thought we were providing this information voluntarily," he said.

The agency has no plans to release the information, Mr. Keith said Friday. He argued that Professor Long's latest requests went far beyond the order, covering costly detailed information that could inadvertently allow the identification of specific taxpayers.

Professor Long said that was false. "There is no change in what we have asked for, and they know it," she said.

"The I.R.S. simply has no regard for court orders," Professor Long said, adding that other federal agencies whose information she collects are also obstructing her.

Researchers, reporters, lobbyists and others have argued that government agencies have for several decades become less open. That perception accelerated after the Sept. 11 attacks, drawing complaints from, among others, Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas.

President Bush signed an executive order last month "to ensure appropriate agency disclosure of information." In a meeting with newspaper editors last April, the president said, "The presumption ought to be that citizens ought to know as much as possible about the government decision making."

A spokesman for the White House, Trent Duffy, said he was unaware of the problems that Professor Long raised but that he would look into "agency specific complaints."

Mr. Keith said political appointees played no role in the decision to withhold the data.

"Decisions regarding the information to be made available to Professor Long," Mr. Keith said, "have routinely and consistently been made by career employees concerned only with how much of an administrative burden is involved, how much taxpayer money are we spending to meet this."

Among the withheld information are figures on how many hours are devoted to audits of large corporations and rich individuals, a basic measure of the thoroughness of the audits.

Among other findings, Professor Long's information has shown that in 1999 the poor were more likely than the rich to be audited.

David Burnham, co-director with Professor Long of the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which collects raw government data, said the withheld information made it impossible to evaluate the intensity of audits. Mr. Burnham noted that the withheld data included figures that indicated how much auditors say is owed in extra taxes, but that the tax agency lets taxpayers negotiate down.

"It is simply impossible to evaluate the I.R.S. without this data," Mr. Burnham said, "and they know it."



7. IRS Owes taxpayers $2 billion -- Including You Perhaps?

By MARY DALRYMPLE, AP Tax Writer Tue Feb 21, 3:57 PM ET

Taxpayers who have fallen behind on their paperwork ­ way, way behind ­ have a $2 billion incentive to get caught up.

The IRS owes more than $2 billion to more than 1.7 million people who never filed tax returns for 2002. Half could get checks worth more than $570.

To collect the refunds, taxpayers must file a 2002 tax return before this year's April 17 filing deadline. The IRS urges taxpayers to check their records and seize the opportunity to claim their money.

"We want people to get the refunds they're entitled to," IRS Commissioner Mark Everson said Tuesday. "Taxpayers can't get a refund if they don't file a return."

The IRS gives people three years to claim a refund before the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury. Taxpayers face no penalties for filing a late return if the IRS owes them a refund.

More Freedom Quotes

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis

"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very de finition of tyranny" "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy" "The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.""Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation" James Madison

"A tyrant...is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader." Plato
"So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men." Voltarine de Cleyre
"Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day." Thomas Jefferson
"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him." Robert Heinlein

"So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world." "We do not accept the existence of permanent tyranny because we do not accept the possibility of permanent slavery. Liberty will come to those who love it."  Bush, Innaugral Speech 2005

VOIP: PN Leadership Offers You Great New Opportunity to Ditch BellSouth and Save Money

by Dr. Robert B. Clarkson
When you pay your telephone bill you are paying unfair and expensive taxes, including the infamous "Al Gore Tax" where you subsidize the phone bill of the lazy, the drunks and the druggies.
The Bell companies make generous donations of your money to gay, communist and extreme left wing groups.
Now, you can escape the excessive taxes (which violate your freedom of speech rights) and greatly lower your phone bill. You can sign up thru me for VOIP, the newest and most cost-effective telecom service ever. It is called NexBoom , formerly known and promoted as Champion Communications.

Contact me pronto if you are interested. This is a new way to fight unlawful taxes and the NWO. Plus much cheaper phone service.

VOIP is very easy and simple to attach to existing phone lines. It works with a broadband connection and in most cases you can keep your phone number.
The people who founded this telecom company 20 years ago have been friends of me and my family for 4 decades.
Do examine my telephone website: 


Note: Dr. Clarkson's last BellSouth phone bill included the following information. Thus, anyone who keeps doing business with this sinister mega-corporation will be gouged for the support of some who prefer drinking, doping and loafing to earning a living:
Low-income support may be available for your home telephone service. Lifeline and Link-Up provide assistance with monthly recurring and connection charges to qualified residential telephone subscribers.  These programs make telephone service more accessible to those who otherwise might not be able to afford it.
You may be eligible if you currently receive income-based benefits from a plan such as Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Food Stamps or Medicaid.
Call 1-888-757-6500 or visit the Lifeline/Link-up website
www.lifelinesupport.org for more information. IF you know others who might qualify, please tell them Bell South may be able to help them get service at the reduced rate.
