Agent Sentenced For Liaisons With Hookers
September 8, 2003
LOS ANGELES --
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
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
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.

Famous e-Patriot Cannon Interview with Nelson Waller
Who is Nelson Waller?
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
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

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.
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
your goals as a patriot for our organization?

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.

"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
ultra-conservative crime polices that began in the early 1970s.
The effect of these policies is that the crime rate today is about
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
(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
population, as blacks are about eight times more likely than whites
locked up. The incarceration rate for women (with minorities leading
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
as manufacturing and retail trade. Literally thousands of companies
seeking profits in this booming industry. The criminal justice
system alone provides a steady supply of career possibilities for
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
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
A researcher, writing about our health care system, observed that
capitalism “finds it more profitable to treat illness rather than
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

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

“Our Federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly

taxation reeks with injustice and is fundamentally Un-American, its
earned a rebellion and it is time that we rebelled.”

“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
