Federal Income Tax


There is no law that states you need to pay Federal Income Tax. In fact – it’s unconstitutional. Go ahead – call up the IRS – ask them to tell you the law that’s on the books requiring you to pay Federal Income Tax. I guarantee they won’t answer your question.

This documentary, while being a bit over the top on doom and gloom, does a pretty good job of explaining why you don’t need to pay Federal Income Tax. It’s a crap shoot though – some people get away with this, others go to jail. That’s the great thing about our justice system it’s “fair and balanced” (funny how people who say that are never fair or balanced). This is a preview – a link to the full documentary is under the YouTube clip.

Related to this was a recent case in Nevada which, of course, got no main stream media coverage.

The four-month trial centered around the family businesses of Robert Kahre who paid numerous workers for their labor with circulating gold and silver U.S. coins, and did not report the wages. The payments took place over several years, allegedly totaling at least $114 million dollars.

In short, this failed prosecution has coalesced and exposed truths our Government desperately needs to hide from the People: the truth about our money, the truth about our (privately-owned) central bank, and the truth about the fraudulent nature of the operation and enforcement of the federal income tax system.

The essence of the argument is that under the Constitution Congress is obligated by law to mint and circulate such coins as demand requires, and must establish the value of coins as they are used as legal tender, but the coins’ market value, arising as valuable personal “property,” is a distinct, separate attribute of such coins, and is of no legal consequence if the coins are used as legal tender.

In other words, if a worker is paid with such coins, his taxable “income” (if any) can only be the face value indicated upon the coin money paid — i.e., $1.00 for a circulating silver dollar or $50 for a circulating gold U.S. coin. Not surprisingly, the IRS has never issued any public guidance regarding this significant issue.

Still confused? From CNN:

The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1913, gives Congress the power “to lay and collect taxes on incomes…” The federal income tax is a product of that amendment, and it has been the source of much debate ever since. Income tax is a complicated subject, but in its simplest terms, the federal government takes a percentage of one’s earnings, based on the amount one earns, to pay for the services and programs that the government provides. In that sense, the federal income tax is often referred to as a “progressive” tax, or simply put, the more money you make, the more taxes you have to pay, although there is a point where the percentage you pay levels off no matter how much you earn.

So the 16th Amendment gives the Congress the power – but the Congress never (as far as I can tell) exercised that power.

This might seem like I’m just trying to find a reason not to pay income tax to save a buck. While I’m not a big fan of the government and consider paying for a military that tortures people just wrong, there is a larger issue here and it’s the Federal Reserve.

The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE bank. Interesting information about the Federal Reserve…

  • The Federal Reserve was created by an act of Congress on Christmas Eve 1913. (cite: FederalReserve.gov) – Chrismas Eve, huh?, that’s not suspicious timing or anything. Kind of like what Bush has been doing with recess appointments.
  • The Federal Reserve can create money who’s only backing (since termination of the gold standard in 1971) is the highly debatable right of Congress to impose an Income Tax (cite: Wikipedia
  • The Federal Reserve (owned by private bankers) lends money it creates to the US Government and charges interest on that. The Congress has the right to create money – so why are we paying private bankers to do this for us?
  • The Federal Reserve bails out banks (that are owned and run by members of the Fed) that run into financial trouble. Most recently seen in the Sub Prime debacle. That’s right, you pay to guarantee banks make money. (cite: How the Federal Reserve Runs the US)

Rockfeller – (whose relatives was one of the founding members of the Fed) said (cite):

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

– David Rockefeller to Trilateral Commission in 1991

Rothschild, another founding member said (cite):

Give me control over a nation’s currency and I care not who makes its laws.

How was the Fed started? (cite: wikipedia)

Forbes magazine founder Bertie Charles Forbes wrote several years later:

Picture a party of the nation’s greatest bankers stealing out of New York on a private railroad car under cover of darkness, stealthily riding hundred of miles South, embarking on a mysterious launch, sneaking onto an island deserted by all but a few servants, living there a full week under such rigid secrecy that the names of not one of them was once mentioned, lest the servants learn the identity and disclose to the world this strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance. I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written… The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done. Senator Aldrich notified each one to go quietly into a private car of which the railroad had received orders to draw up on an unfrequented platform. Off the party set. New York’s ubiquitous reporters had been foiled… Nelson (Aldrich) had confided to Henry, Frank, Paul and Piatt that he was to keep them locked up at Jekyll Island, out of the rest of the world, until they had evolved and compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System, the plan done on Jekyll Island in the conference with Paul, Frank and Henry… Warburg is the link that binds the Aldrich system and the present system together. He more than any one man has made the system possible as a working reality.

So – we’ve got all the makings for a a fanciful world domination conspiracy theory. While that might be the case, I suspect it’s just good old fashioned greed driving most of this. These are openly available facts, not a whole lot of conjecture here. You never hear about this kind of thing in the public media and, if you were to pull the average joe off the sidewalk and tell him these things he’d think you were crazy.
