Proof positive that our society has sunk to the deepest depths of depravity. No one doubts even for a minute that Michael Jackson is one of the most talented men in the entertainment industry. But he is a 40+ year old man who has paid millions of dollars to a family in order to escape prosecution for child molestation. He has had so much plastic surgery that he looks like a little child. He is a Black man that has treated his skin to make it whiter than any white man. Now he is attempting to make himself look like Elizabeth Taylor. In the interest of the politically correct socialist diversity program our society approves of every bit of his behavior. What does this say to our children? It is my opinion that Michael Jackson has no sense of self worth... my heart goes out to him. I believe this poor unhappy suffering man needs mental treatment, not adulation. If our society continues upon this course it is doomed to self destruction in the same manner as the fall of ancient Rome. - William Cooper
Open Letter to Mr. Marty Jezer,
Mr. Jezer I have been aware of you for some time as an author, and Southern Vermont newspaper editorialist . I have ignored you because your impact is for the most part insignificant. But in one of your recent writings you made the mistake of calling me, and anyone who dares to think like me, a fool.
It is ludicrous that a subversive like you, who pretends to be an American, but is doing everything possible to destroy America, thinks that those of us who believe solidly in the principles and ideals which made this the greatest nation ever to exist upon the face of this earth are fools.
You have bought the lies of those murdering failures, Hitler, Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi, and Castro. Hitler was not so-called right-wing Mr. Jezer... he was a socialist just like you.
In light of the mass murders of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Ho Chi, and others, Hitler is a minor league player; but it is Hitler, the socialist, that you masquerade as right-wing instead of decrying the unbelievably monumental blood letting of your heros whom you cannot deny are socialist. The Nazi party did not just describe itself as socialist; it was socialist, and Hitler rode to power upon a wave of democracy. The only difference between Hitler and the others is that Hitler didn't murder as many People.
You say, "But socialism means, among other things, public... in one form of (sp) another... of the means of production. In my book, socialism is also inherently democratic; which is why totalitarian communism is something different." That's what you wrote Mr. Jezer. It demonstrates that you are either totally ignorant of the political philosophy in which you say you believe, or you believe the rest of us are incapable of understanding what Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Chairman Ho, and Castro wrote or said. What you described in your statement is socialism but it is also what Lenin described as communism.
Marx made no secret of the fact that the ultimate goal of socialism is communism. He said, "Democracy is the road to socialism." V.I. Lenin said, "Democracy is indispensable to socialism." And both said, "The ultimate goal of socialism is communism." Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Mihn, and Castro have all echoed their pronouncements. You will most probably tell us they didn't mean it, that it was all a joke.
Mr. Jezer the joke is on you. This nation was never, is not, and cannot ever be a democracy. If it ever becomes a democracy it will cease to be this nation. The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic, and before you deny that fact you had better read-on.
The Founders created this nation with a balance of power that is nothing short of pure genius. The only office elected by the People was to be the Representatives of the House of Representatives. The Senators were appointed by the legislatures of each State in order to preserve State sovereignty. At some point the People were persuaded to approve an amendment to have Senators elected by the People. In reality it makes one house of Congress superfluous. Which house? Take your pick since the only reason for two was to balance the sovereignty of the States against the stupidity of the mob. Now we have two houses representing the same mob and that cancels out any possible reason that there should be two.
The Congress was balanced against the Executive and Judicial branches. Presidents are not elected by the mob but by an electoral college chosen by a method decided by the legislature of each State. This system is designed specifically to keep central government in check in order to protect the sovereignty of each State and the Rights of the People.
I find it strange that people like you who scream the loudest about your Rights has not got the slightest idea where Rights come from, exactly what they are, or how to keep them. Nor do you seem to know that Rights are not "civil" but are absolute. Nor has history taught you that under socialism Rights disappear.
From your writings I suspect that you have never read the Constitution for the united States of America, and that you wouldn't understand it if you had. But just in case you ever run across a copy, check out Article 4, Section 4, where it guarantees to every State in this Union a Republican form of government. Socialism is unconstitutional in light of that provision which the Founders in their infinite wisdom saw fit to include as the supreme Law of the land. You might also want to read the Pledge of Allegiance where it says, "... and to the Republic for which it stands..." Absolutely nowhere is the word "democracy" to be found because the Founders feared the mob as much as they feared the King.
No Mr. Jezer, It is you who is the fool. First because history has proven your cause leads to mass murder and enslavement of the People. Second because you obviously think the rest of are as stupid as you.
Your pretense of loving America while you are setting about destroying America is a great expose' for those of us who can still think. If all you cared about was living under socialism you wouldn't be wasting your time here trying to subvert and change our Republic; you would have moved to one of the countries where socialism is practiced.
You are a change-agent with an agenda. Your goal is world communism. You are not fooling anybody.
Before we Americans allow you to enslave us in your so-called democracy, a code word for socialism designed to lead into communism, we will take up arms and hang every traitor from the nearest lamp post. And Mr. Jezer that is not a threat that is a solemn promise. It is our duty. That is exactly why the Founders gave us the Second Article in Amendment. You know that is true, and that is why you and your fellow travelers are trying so very hard to disarm the American People. Good luck; you are going to need it.
My book Behold a Pale Horse is the biggest underground best-seller in the history of publishing. Ten million People listen to my international radio broadcast 4 nights a week. And 20 million People have visited my web site. Does that sound like I am a fool?
You just don't seem to understand that there are many more of us than there are of you, and we will never give up our guns. We are willing to die for Freedom if it becomes necessary. I bet you are not willing to die for Karl Marx. I take great pleasure in knowing that it's a moot point because socialists don't believe in owning guns.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it while you ponder that word, "fool".
A MUST READ!

author: Israel Shamir (email@example.com)
To my Jewish brothers I say: the opinions of medieval Jews do not bind us. Every Jew can decide for himself, whether to pray for the destruction of the Gentiles or to share the blessing of the Holy Land with the villagers of Birim and Bethlehem. Within the Jewish people, there were always spiritual descendants of the prophets who wished to bring peace and blessing to all the children of Adam. As true as this almond blossom, in you the prophecy will be fulfilled: 'All the nations of the earth will bless you' (Deut. 7).
When in 1543, the typhoon-blown Portuguese schooners approached the shores of Japan, the astonished sailors could not believe their eyes: on a warm spring day, the tropical island ahoy was buried under snow. They were witness to one of the real Seven Wonders of the World, the flowers of sakura, the wild cherry of Japan. As soon as the benevolent heaven bestows this seasonal gift to earth, the Japanese forget their wives and kids, their duties, employers and bills; they just sit under the trees, drink sake wine and write poems, short and sharp as swords.
That is why, these days, leaving behind our man-made troubles, I sit under the white cloud of a tree and watch the beautiful white and pink blossoms of almond trees covering the hills of Galilee. These lovely blossoms are our version of the Japanese sakura, and a chance to indulge in the custom of flower viewing. A honey aroma wafts through the air; the skies are crystal blue. Yellow daisies dance on the lush green grass at the base of these almond wonders, interspersed by violet cyclamen and red anemones. The glorious backdrop is provided by the huge snow mass of Jebel al Sheikh (Mt Hermon). Palestine is a sister to Japan. These two hilly lands are home to stubborn mountain folk, devoted to their customs and ways.
For all the similarities in the landscape, there are differences. The hill we sit on, all white like Jaffa sea surf, is the ruin of a village. If we were in Japan, it would be alive and humming. The village of Birim has been dead for fifty years. It is beautiful even in death, like Ophelia floating down the stream in the pre-Raphaelite painting of Millais. It was not ruined by war. Its Christian inhabitants were expelled from their houses well after the 1948 war. They were told to leave for a week or two, for 'security' reasons. They had no option but to believe the Israeli officers and move out. Their village was dynamited, their church surrounded by barbed wire. They went to Israeli court, they went to the government, commissions were appointed and petitions signed. Nothing helped. Ever since, for 50 years, they have lived in the nearby villages and on Sundays they continue to visit their church. Their lands were seized by their Jewish neighbors, but they still bring their dead to be buried in the church graveyard, under the sign of the cross.
Until the arrival of the Israeli army, this ruined village with its orphaned church was the home of the rural Christians of Birim who, for centuries of Moslem rule, lived in peace with their Moslem neighbors of Nebi Yosha and with the old Sephardi Jewish community of nearby Safed. This little Guernica in the Galillee can single-handedly undermine the myth of a 'Judeo-Christian' civilization opposing a 'monstrous' Islam. This myth lays at the foundation of the Christian Zionist movement; among its fervent supporters, one can find a friend of Mark Rich and a newly minted New York citizen, W. J. Clinton.
The problems of the Middle East are ugly enough without the current Moslem-bashing. The pro-Israeli pundits of the New York Times quote the blood-curling verses on Jihad, retell the old traditions of religious wars and persecutions, to 'prove' Islam's cruelty and intolerance. They are repeated by a pleasant upper-class Jewish lady from London, Barbra Amiel. In a sotto voce, she writes about 'exclusivist' Islam and Jewish 'moderation'. In order to incite hatred, Israel's lobby works all the ropes. Before the rise of Israel, Arab sheiks were depicted as romantic heroes in movies acted by Rudolf Valentino. Nowadays, the pro-Israel producers of Hollywood turn out propaganda films on ill-shaven Moslem terrorists with the subtlety of Edward D. Wood, Jr. This new prejudice is amplified a hundredfold by the Christian Zionist Congress, claiming 'protection for Christians of Palestine from the Moslem (?!) persecution'. These people obviously have not walked among the ruins of Birim.
Another email comes into my laptop, this time from Gaza. An American girl, Alison Weir from San Francisco evades Israeli bullets, comforts the scared Palestinian kids, and writes: "The problem is when you know the truth, it is far too cruel, far too diametrically opposite what we used to think and what everyone still thinks to express. The lie is too big, the repression too complete, the Palestinians' lives too horrible to write about reasonably".
Well, Alison is right. We face a huge lie, an anti-Moslem blood libel, and it is time to stop it. I do not think that the problems of Middle East have anything to do with religion. But if the supporters of Israel want to wake up the sleeping ghost of religious intolerance, to incite Christians against Moslems, let us audit their balance.
If these Christian Zionists care for Christ, not only for Zion, let them learn what Jews and Moslems feel towards Christ. Rami Rozen expressed the Jewish tradition in a long feature in a major Israeli newspaper Haaretz[i]: "Jews feel towards Jesus today what they felt in 4 c or in the Middle Ages. It is not fear, it is hatred and despise". "For centuries, Jews concealed from Christians their hate to Jesus, and this tradition continues even now". "He is revolting and repulsive", said an important modern religious Jewish thinker. Rozen writes that this "repulsion passed from the observant Jews to the general Israeli public".
On Christmas Eve, according to a report in the Jerusalem local paper, Kol Ha-Ir[ii], Hassids customarily do not read holy books, as it could save Jesus from eternal punishment (the Talmud teaches that Jesus boils in hell[iii]). This custom was dying out, but Hassids of Habad, the fervent nationalists, brought it back to life. I still remember old Jews spitting while passing by a church, and cursing the dead, while passing by a Christian cemetery. Last year in Jerusalem, a Jew decided to refresh the tradition. He spat at Holy Cross, carried in the procession along the city. Police saved him from further trouble, but the court fined him $50, despite his claim that he just fulfilled his religious duty.
Last year, the biggest Israeli tabloid Yedioth Aharonoth reprinted in its library the Jewish anti-Gospel, Toledoth Eshu, compiled in the Middle Ages. It is the third recent reprint, including one in a newspaper. If the Gospel is the book of love, Toledoth is the book of hate for Christ. The hero of the book is Judas. He captures Jesus by polluting his purity. According to Toledoth, the conception of Christ was in sin, the miracles of Jesus were witchcraft, his resurrection but a trick.
Joseph Dan, a Professor of Jewish mysticism in Hebrew University in Jerusalem, writing on the death of Jesus stated: "The modern Jewish apologists, hesitantly adopted by the church, preferred to put the blame on Romans. But the medieval Jew did not wish to pass the buck. He tried to prove that Jesus had to be killed, and he was proud of killing Him. The Jews hated and despised Christ and Christians". Actually, adds Prof. Dan, there is little place to doubt that the Jewish enemies of Jesus caused his execution.
Even today, Jews in Israel refer to Jesus by the demeaning word Yeshu (instead of Yeshua), meaning 'Perish his name'. There is an ongoing argument, whether His name was turned into a swear word, or other way around. In a similar pun, the Gospel is called 'Avon Gilaion', the booklet of Sin. These are the endearing feeling of the friends of Christian Zionists towards Christ.
What about Moslems? The Moslems venerate Christ. He is called 'The Word of God", "Logos", Messiah, the Prophet and is considered "a Messenger of God", along with Abraham, Moses and Muhammad. Many chapters of the Kor'an tell the story of Christ, his virgin birth and his persecution by Jews. His saintly mother is admired, and the Immaculate Conception is one of the tenets of Islam. The name of Christ glorifies the golden edifice of Haram a-Sharif. According to the Moslem faith, it was there that the founder of Islam met Jesus, and they prayed together. The Hadith, the Moslem tradition, says in the name of the prophet, 'We do not forbid you to believe in Christ, we order you to". Moslems identify their prophet with Paracletes, the Helper (Jn 14:16) whose coming was predicted by Jesus. They venerate places associated with the life of Jesus: the place of Ascension, the Tomb of Lazarus, the Holy Sepulchre are adjacent to a mosque and perfectly accessible by Christians.
While Moslems do not consider Jesus - God, they proclaim him as the Messiah, the Anointed one, the Paradise Dweller. This religious idea, familiar to Nestorians and other early churches, but rejected by mainstream Christianity, opened the gates for those Jews, who could not part with the notion of strict monotheism. That is why many Palestinian Jews and Christians of the 7th century accepted Islam and became Palestinian Moslems. They remained in their villages, they did not depart for Poland or England, they did not learn Yiddish, they did not study the Talmud, but they continued to shepherd their flocks and plant almond trees, they remained faithful to their land and to the great idea of the fraternity of men.
In the south of Hebron, in the ruins of Susiah, one can see how in the course of two centuries a synagogue slowly evolved into a mosque, as the population of nearby caves abandoned the exclusionary faith of Babylonian wizards and adopted Islam. These shepherds still live there, in the same caves. In the last year, the Israeli army has twice tried to expel them to provide more room for new settlers from Brooklyn.
Why, in this season of blossoming almond trees, do I brood on the sensitive subject of Jewish and Moslem attitudes towards Christ? Because one has to stop the mills of hatred operated by Israel's supporters. Because the "Judeo-Christian" code language is being used to justify the barbed wire around Birim's Church and the tanks around Bethlehem. Because there is a duty to remove an obstacle from the path of the blind.
The majority of the Christian Zionists are simple misled souls, people of good intentions but little knowledge. They think they 'support Jews', but they promote the Christ-hating spirit among the Jews. It was not in vain that a hero of the Zionist Bible, Exodus by Leon Uris, kept a poster in his room saying 'We crucified Christ'. It was not in vain that an Israeli soldier on the roadblock of Bethlehem told me yesterday, 'We starve the beasts', referring to the native Christians of the city of Nativity. It was not in vain that the Gospel was burned on a stake in Israel, while anti-Gospel literature is widely spread; that new immigrant Jews embracing Christianity are persecuted and deported; that every preacher of the Christian faith in Israel can be sent to jail according to new anti-Christian laws; that Israeli archaeologists erase the Christian holy sites and memories off the face of the Holy Land.
To the leaders of the Christian Zionists, who surely know these facts, but lead their innocent flock on the path of the Anti-Christ, I say, "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Christ to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone tied round his neck and be drowned in the deep sea" (Mt 18:6).
To my Jewish brothers I say: the opinions of medieval Jews do not bind us. Every Jew can decide for himself, whether to pray for the destruction of the Gentiles or to share the blessing of the Holy Land with the villagers of Birim and Bethlehem. Within the Jewish people, there were always spiritual descendants of the prophets who wished to bring peace and blessing to all the children of Adam. As true as this almond blossom, in you the prophecy will be fulfilled: 'All the nations of the earth will bless you' (Deut. 7).

Stop Witholding Employees Taxes
Our second ad appears today (Friday, 3/2/01) on page 11A of USA TODAY. This is the weekend edition, which means it is available nationwide, through Sunday night. Check it out. It features the photos and names of five employers who have stopped withholding taxes from the paychecks of their employees. They have joined a growing number of former and present IRS officers, attorneys, Certified Public Accountants and retired judges who believe and assert that there is no law that requires most employers to withhold and no law that requires most Americans to file an income tax return or to pay the federal income tax, and that the entire income tax system is founded upon fraud and is operated illegally.
The message also addresses the government's refusal to meet in a public forum to address these issues.

Earthquake States, Probability of 7.0 Magnitude or Larger
Do you have anything to fear?
by William Cooper
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, February 28, 2001 -- Information gleaned from earthquake data from the last 200 years in the United States produces some surprising, and some not so surprising information. Most Americans would name California as the state most likely to have the largest earthquakes, not so. And who would suspect that Idaho, Montana or Arkansas are potentially big quake states?
Our investigation has revealed that the following states have experienced the largest quakes in the past, and are the ones most likely to experience future earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or larger. They are listed in order of probability.
1. Alaska (Surprise!)
3. Hawaii (Includes sea floor in immediate vicinity of the islands)
It is not probable that other states could experience large quakes of magnitude 7.0 or larger but it is not impossible. Most states have experienced earthquakes measuring from imperceptible up to and including just under 7.0 in magnitude.
The data also suggests the following:
1. If all of the pressure in the fault was relieved on February 28th, there might not be another major quake in the northwest United States for many years.
2. The earthquake in the Portland, Seattle area could trigger major quakes in other adjacent areas such as California.
3. The Portland, Seattle quake could be the harbinger of a much larger quake in the same area in the near future.
4. Even though Arkansas and Missouri are listed number 6 in probability they are the location of one of the largest earthquakes ever to occur in the recorded history of the North American continent. The quake that hit those two states in mid nineteenth century changed the course of the Mississippi river and even caused the water to run backward for an extended period of time.
5. Anyone who predicts that an earthquake of magnitude of 2.0 or larger will hit any one of the above listed states, in the #1 through #4 probability areas, on any given day stands an 82% chance of being right.
6. Anyone who predicts that an earthquake, no matter the magnitude, will hit on any given day in any of the above listed states stands a 92% chance of being right.
7. Anyone who predicts that an earthquake, no matter the magnitude, will hit Alaska or California on any given day stands a 100% chance of being right. Betting against it will put you in the poor house.
8. Earthquake prediction is far from a perfect science so everything we have reported above could turn out to be wrong... unfortunately, or fortunately depending upon where you are when the next big quake hits.
Ask the Internal Revenue Service!
By Dan Meador
Introduction & Confession
It took most of eight years, loss of home, earnings, and everything else, not to mention sixteen months in prison, but I finally unearthed the regulation that compels the Internal Revenue Service to determine whether or not any given individual, business or other enterprise is liable for federal income tax. The regulation is section 601.201 of Title 26 of the Internal Revenue Code, subsection (a)(1):
"It is the practice of the Internal Revenue Service to answer inquiries of individuals and organizations, whenever appropriate in the interest of sound tax administration, as to their status for tax purposes and as to the tax effects of their acts or transactions."
Had I known about the regulation in March 1993 when I first had the audacity to ask a revenue officer several penetrating questions, I might have been spared years of grief. As it was, the revenue officer refused to answer questions I posed, her superiors, up to and including the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, refused to be accountable, and I suffered consequences of the proverbial grist mill that routinely destroys lives of Americans across the nation.
Because IRS has characteristically refused to be accountable, independent researchers were forced to dredge through something like five million pages of tax law, regulations and supplemental material before nailing down particulars of the Federal tax system. In June 1996, I published a memorandum as legal notice in the primary Oklahoma legal newspaper that proved no taxing statute in the Internal Revenue Code has general application, and that the Internal Revenue Service is not an agency of government of the United States as such. Congress did not legislatively create the Internal Revenue Service or its predecessor, the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Consequently, the restriction imposed by Article I, Section 8, clause 18 of the U.S. Constitution, which requires Congress to legislatively empower all branches of government, forecloses IRS from enforcing internal revenue laws of the United States within States of the Union.
Within a month, I received what passed for an indictment for alleged obstruction of justice. I assisted people with a defense pleading then they subsequently didn't answer a summons to their arraignment.
A summons? That's right. There wasn't even a warrant for their arrest, and even though appearance on summonses is voluntary, and there was testimony at my trial confirming that I refused to advise them one way or the other so far as whether or not to appear, I was convicted and subsequently spent sixteen months in Federal custody.
Was I prosecuted on a tax charge? That would be the obvious reason to prosecute me because I didn't file tax returns for 1992 through 1995, and throughout that time was a thorn in IRS' side. So why obstruction of justice on what was obviously a trumped-up charge where the statute isn't even applicable to the alleged offense? Why not willful failure to file or something on that order?
The obvious answer is this: my 1996 memorandum was on point. No income tax imposed by internal revenue laws of the United States has blanket application in States of the Union, and IRS does not have lawful authority for enforcement within the several States.
With that said, why this article? Because April 15th is rolling around again and it's good cop - bad cop propaganda time. The New York Times and every other major mainline newspaper have accommodated IRS threats against a small group of American business owners who checked their respective companies out of the Federal income tax system, and people such as Leo K. O'Drudy III are helping IRS rattle the sword. Mr. O'Drudy recently posted an article titled "Anti-Tax Con Men" on the Free Congress Foundation web site where many of the nation's political conservatives converge for discussion and news. Thus the battle rages, with everything from vitriolic accusations to gentler persuasion such as Mr. O'Drudy's patronizing prose.
Possibly I am considered one of the con men, but to be convincing, the case must be made on something more than glib accusations. Many in the tax reform movement have credentials similar to mine. I have been a publishing writer since 1969, I earned a degree with a double major in English, lacking one course of a third major in philosophy, in the early 1990s, in some circles I was considered one of the more accurate independent economic analysts in the nation, I've owned several small businesses, I've served as managing editor for a rural market center daily newspaper, for seven years I produced Oklahoma's largest farm organization newspaper, and I was well enough respected in the Oklahoma legislature that in 1987 I was instrumental in securing the first three veto over-rides of Henry Bellmon's last term as governor. I've been in independent Christian ministry, largely at my own expense, since 1983. To the point I was indicted, at age 51, I had never been arrested and hadn't even been cited for a moving traffic violation for over 20 years.
With that said, let's examine the Federal income tax system. We will begin with a question that might not be obvious to the novice who isn't ordinarily exposed to law, high finance and inside politics: Is a Federal tax system necessary?
What is Your Fair Share?
Would you continue to file returns and pay Federal income taxes if you learned that (1) you aren't liable for income taxes and (2) government doesn't need income tax revenue to fund operations?
Most Americans would call for the guys with rubber suits if someone said government doesn't need tax money and that he or she isn't liable for Federal income taxes. We grew up hearing that death and taxes are the only two certainties. But there is a paradox in our common belief system. We were also taught that when recognized authorities are of one mind, they're invariably wrong.
With that being said, let's consider the second question first: Does Federal government need income tax revenue to fund operations?
In 1945, Beardsley Ruml gave a speech to American Bar Association members titled Taxes for Revenue are Obsolete (complete article posted at www.taxgate.com). As chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Ruml understood the nation's tax, credit and monetary systems. Given the time frame, he might have participated in engineering them. His explanation of why government of the United States doesn't need a tax system was simple and direct:
"The necessity for a government to tax in order to maintain both its independence and its solvency is true for state and local governments, but it is not true for a national government. Two changes of the greatest consequence have occurred in the last twenty-five years which have substantially altered the position of the national state with respect to the financing of its current requirements. The first of these changes is the gaining of vast new experience in the management of central banks.
The second change is the elimination, for domestic purposes, of the convertibility of the currency into gold.
Final freedom from the domestic money market exists for every sovereign national state where there exists an institution which functions in the manner of a modern central bank, and whose currency is not convertible into gold or into some other commodity.
The United States is a national state which has a central banking system, the Federal Reserve System, and whose currency, for domestic purposes, is not convertible into any commodity. It follows that our Federal Government has final freedom from the money market in meeting its financial requirements. Accordingly, the inevitable social and economic consequences of any and all taxes have now become the prime consideration in the imposition of taxes. In general, it may be said that since all taxes have consequences of a social and economic character, the government should look to these consequences in formulating its tax policy. All federal taxes must meet the test of public policy and practical effect. The public purpose which is served should never be obscured in a tax program under the mask of raising revenue."
Federal government simply has to borrow money into existence to fund operations. The borrowed money increases money supply in relation to goods and services. The effect is inflation. Inflation is effectively a tax spread uniformly throughout the system. Since the early 1970s, prices of essential goods and services have inflated approximately 400%. If there is such a thing as a fair share, everyone is forced to bite the inflation bullet as it devalues all existing wealth, with the purchasing power of production and working classes being most severely undermined. The inflation effect is somewhat like adding water to a pitcher of fruit punch every time someone drinks some of the punch. The punch is eventually diluted until it is nearly transparent.
The next obvious question is, "If the national government doesn't need tax revenue to fund operations, what is the purpose of the tax system?" Ruml provided an answer:
"Federal taxes can be made to serve four principal purposes of a social and economic character. These purposes are:
1. As an instrument of fiscal policy to help stabilize the purchasing power of the dollar;
2. To express public policy in the distribution of wealth and of income, as in the case of the progressive income and estate taxes;
3. To express public policy in subsidizing or in penalizing various industries and economic groups;
4. To isolate and assess directly the costs of certain national benefits, such as highways and social security.
In the recent past, we have used our federal tax program consciously for each of these purposes. In serving these purposes, the tax program is a means to an end. The purposes themselves are matters of basic national policy which should be established, in the first instance, independently of any national tax program."
Is it possible that the Federal income tax system is simply a vehicle for political and social control? If Ruml is to be believed, that's precisely the case. It is used as a mechanism for redistribution of wealth and for probing into financial affairs of the American people. It is a control mechanism, nothing more. In fact, in one of its scathing reports, the Grace Commission flatly stated that little if any of the income tax revenue is used to fund essential government operations.
The genesis of the graduated income tax can be traced to The Communist Manifesto, constructed by Karl Marx as a political agenda for destruction of Western capitalism and free enterprise. No other modern political manifesto even considers graduated income tax as a legitimate means for funding essential government services.
The Paper Tiger
Since 1998, Federal tax liens, levies and seizures are down by over 90%, and by 1998, according to IRS figures, an estimated 65 million Americans were not filing income tax returns.
If you access the Internal Revenue Service web page, you will find that the agency constantly advertises for help. Since 1992, employee numbers are down in excess of 18,000. In the last couple of years reasonably high profile people such as former IRS criminal investigator Joe Banister and former auditor John Turner have abandoned ship and have called for IRS accountability. After four years of fighting IRS resistance, the lady who served as official historian resigned and wrote a scathing account of IRS' internal intrigue and chronic cover-ups. Several whistle-blowers who attempted to bring internal accountability have gone public with complaints about lateral transfers and automatic career dead-ends with few internal disciplinary actions against those involved in corrupt activity.
IRS is the classic case of the Peter Principle manifest: once incompetents fill key positions, they invariably fill responsible positions below themselves with worse incompetents until the system fails.
The Federal income tax hoax notwithstanding, the Internal Revenue Service is on the endangered species list. It is replete with incompetents (the General Accounting Office routinely abandons IRS audits as no more than about 35% of the agency's accounts can be balanced; over half of the audits IRS personnel do are fraught with errors), and because of its internal corruption, it cannot retain capable people who have personal integrity. Those who have had dealings with IRS will for the most part verify that it is staffed with thugs.
The agency is being demoralized from inside and out - it cannot hire and retain capable people and it cannot withstand mounting political winds and legal challenges.
What Tax Do I Owe?
Several years ago Alabama attorney Larry Becraft defended Lloyd Long and others in a high profile case where all defendants were acquitted on indictments for willful failure to file and related charges. The jury concluded that the government never demonstrated that Long and other defendants are subject to any given tax imposed by internal revenue laws of the United States that require keeping books and records and filing returns.
In the eight years I've been studying income tax law, I have yet to find taxing and liability statutes, with attending regulations, that make me a person liable for any of the Internal Revenue Code taxes.
The reason is this: Income taxes, as a category, are indirect or excise taxes where the wage or whatever is the measure, not the object of the tax. The object is a privilege or benefit derived from government of the United States. If whatever sources or activities from which you receive income are not a result of or do not generate a government benefit or privilege, you probably aren't subject to taxes imposed by Subtitles A, B and C of the Internal Revenue Code.
In his discourse, Mr. O'Drudy recommended reading the Congressional Research Service publication titled Frequently Asked Questions Concerning the Federal Income Tax - Report 97-59A (1996). The answer to the first question in the report confirms that income taxes are excise or indirect taxes:
"All taxes which are not direct are indirect and subject to the rule of uniformity. The rule of uniformity requires that an indirect tax not discriminate geographically. For example, it would violate the rule of uniformity to enact a special income tax rate for residents of the State of Texas; however, it does not violate the rule to have a special income tax rate for individuals who make over $50,000 per year." (page 2)
In the March 27, 1943 edition of the Congressional Record--House, at pages 2579 et seq., a report by a former Treasury legislative draftsman is even clearer:
"The sixteenth amendment authorizes the taxation of income from whatever source derived thus taxing investment income without apportionment among the several States. The Supreme Court has held that the sixteenth amendment did not extend the taxing power of the United States to new or excepted subjects but merely removed the necessity which might otherwise exist for an apportionment among the States of taxes laid on income whether it be received from one source or another. So the amendment made it possible to bring investment income within the scope of the general income-tax law, but did not change the character of the tax. It is still fundamentally an excise or duty with respect to the privilege of carrying on the activity or owning any property which produces income.
The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax; it is the basis for determining the amount of tax."
Without resorting to overly much technicality, the Federal income tax system follows these lines: Federal income taxes, as a category, break down into two basic classifications. The first class is conveniently called income tax. These taxes are imposed by Subtitles A & B of the Internal Revenue Code, including the "normal tax" imposed by Chapter 1 which most everybody knows as income tax. The second class is employment taxes, imposed by Subtitle C. The latter includes social welfare taxes and government personnel taxes.
Subtitles A & B income taxes are applicable to nonresident aliens, foreign corporations and foreign partnerships with United States source income, and to citizens and residents of the United States with foreign source income, income from insular possessions of the United States, and trade-related income subject to various treaty provisions such as the China Trade Act. There is a comprehensive list of income sources for which citizens and residents of the United States are liable at section 1.861-8(f)(1)(vi) of Title 26 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
Do nonresident aliens have a constitutionally secured right to engage in income-producing enterprise in the United States? Hardly. Our government, via treaty or otherwise, grants them a privilege. Do citizens and residents of the United States have the right to engage in income-producing enterprise in foreign nations? No, we have that privilege or benefit via negotiated treaties and United States government otherwise provides protection for whatever foreign enterprise Americans undertake.
Employment taxes fall into two categories: Social welfare taxes imposed by Chapters 21 through 23, including the Social Security tax, are mandatory only in territory belonging to the United States. Our various state governments have contracts for participation in the Social Security scheme, but the agreements extent only to state employees and employees of political subdivisions of the state.
Why? Because the Constitution does not vest Congress with authority to impose a national welfare scheme where one is taxed for the benefit of another. In 1935, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the first social security program Congress enacted, then the subsequent Social Security Act of 1935 was made applicable only to territory belonging to the United States.
Mr. O'Drudy lamented about the definition of the term "United States" many people argue in tax forums. Definitions of "State" and "United States" applicable to the Social Security tax clearly limit application to territory belonging to the United States.
The definitions are at section 31.3121(e)-1 of Title 26 of the Code of Federal Regulations. When reading these definitions of "State" and "United States", note that the Social Security tax applied in Alaska and Hawaii prior to their admission to the Union but not after. Even IRS apologists such as Mr. O'Drudy have trouble jumping these hurdles.
The government personnel tax imposed by Chapter 24 is reasonably easy to document as the "employee" the tax is levied against is defined at section 3401(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Here we might ask a simple question of those who are fortunate enough to own their own businesses: Have you received the Form 8655 Reporting Agent Authorization certificate from the Treasury Financial Management Service? If not, what authority do you have to withhold Subtitle C employment taxes from your employees?
What special privileges and benefits do government employees derive from government employment? When you understand the complete Federalism scheme, the list is longer than a well rope. There isn't space enough to list them here.
Going by the Book
Has the tax reform movement been plagued by con artists? You bet it has. But to say everyone in the tax reform movement is a con artist would be like saying every Democrat is a Bill Clinton or every Republican is a Richard Nixon. It simply isn't so. In fact, the rank and file of the tax reform movement, as Mr. O'Drudy acknowledged, is devoutly Christian. And, of course, there has been no want of martyred casualties. As Mr. Ruml told American Bar Association members in 1945, the tax system is employed to impose social control.
Whether intentionally or not, Mr. O'Drudy and others like him carry out an important role. The overall Federalism scheme, of which the tax system is simply a part, relies on mass propaganda and terrorization, reinforced by random victimization, to accomplish its ends. Or put another way, prosecute a few in order to scare the rest into submission.
If memory serves, Mr. O'Drudy described the scheme as voluntary compliance. The term is simply another equivocation.
By about 1990, something of a new breed began joining the tax reform movement. I've already recited some of my credentials. Another, who intended to become a priest when he retired, was a computer programmer for investment banking. Successful stock brokers and money managers have joined the movement, former corporate executives and a multitude of people with highly developed computer and other technical skills. Airline pilots, retired military officers, retired policemen, and, of course, Internal Revenue Service defectors have joined the growing ranks of tax reform advocates.
Things really got under way with the advent of Internet and computer-based law resources. Then Congress chipped in with the IRS reform and restructuring act of 1998. Several sections of the 1998 act provide accountability forums for IRS personnel. When and if they don't comply with mandates and prohibitions of the Internal Revenue Code, Treasury regulations and published policy, penalties range from administrative discipline to criminal prosecution. Congress even created the office of Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration as an outside investigative Treasury office.
Even though I suspect that any given reader isn't liable for Federal income tax, I'm not the final authority. But we now know that if you are uncertain, you can ask IRS to make a status determination. So long as your request is made within the framework of the good faith and reasonable cause standard, and your position is anchored within the substantial authority standard, you don't have to be concerned about draconian penalties or criminal prosecution. If fact, you don't even have to file a return until the status determination is made and the worst that can happen is you will have to pay the tax you are liable for plus interest for late payment.
There are right ways and wrong ways to go about things. When dealing with government agencies, it is best to go by the book. However, where tax matters are concerned, there has been the problem of determining which of the thousands of books preserve constitutionally secured rights. Thanks to contemporary electronics and thousands of diligent Americans dedicated to unearthing the truth, today we probably know the book better than most IRS personnel know it.
IRS Agents Prove Cooper Right Again!
Three Special Agents of the IRS Speak Out - Income Tax is a Fraud!
I am pleased to announce the first in a series of advertisements scheduled to appear in U.S.A. Today regarding the fraud and deceit in the administration of the federal income tax. The ad is sponsored by Bob Schulz's We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education and We The People Congress organizations and is also funded by many generous individual donations. See http://www.givemeliberty.org for more information. Tell everyone you know to obtain a copy of the Friday, February 16, 2001 issue of U.S.A. Today, where a full page advertisement will appear featuring three former IRS agents (myself and two other agents). Please show your support for the other two former IRS agents who have summoned up the courage to speak out in such a public way. Their efforts will likely cause some heartburn in Washington, D.C., as they will see that more and more credible people are stepping forward in a very public way to expose the income tax for what it is - full of injustice and fraud.

Help Stop John Turner's Appointment
to the Department of Interior!
John Turner is a member of the Conservation Fund and a long time Rockefeller Republican. That he is a descendant of an established Wyoming ranching family is not as important as how he has impacted the West and its natural resource users and producers. The record does not speak well for him. He is also a friend of Dick Cheney's which may be part of the reason for what looks like his potential appointment to the Interior Dept. Gale Norton may be just a figure head as Turner will, in actuality, run things.
Never never lose sight of the fact that these guys are after all an exclusive club of rich folks who care as much about their own interests as anything.
Sorry folks, but not even Cheney is perfect. If Turner gets the Interior job, his record indicates he will foil anything Gale Norton will try to do in regards to property rights or balancing environmental concerns with the livelihoods of Westerners and private property rights.
The Conservation Fund is a land grab in the sense that it takes much land out of private hands and places it in the control of elites. To someone who does not care about these issues --- think of Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, think of the "king's forests" and what happened in England to the commons held in "trust" by the barons and nobles, think of WIlliam Wallace and Rob Roy, think of the Magna Carta and the reasons that it was presented to the King and the demands therein. All these incidents of elite or aristocratic control of land or private property do matter TO EVERYONE.
We are turning the West into a feudal barony for the elites to play in or to exploit. It has got to stop. May I suggest strongly worded telegrams or letters or calls to Bush and to your reps who have influence on Bush. Let us NOT drop the ball now -- these guys -- Republicans and Democrats have got to know WE ARE WATCHING THEM!!!!!!.
Before you take that next bite...!

Veritas News Service - Exclusive - January 30, 2001 -- Mad Cow Disease, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy or BSE, is in the United States. It has been here for a long time. It is deadly. And depending upon exactly who I'm talking to, somewhere between 250,000 and one million cattle die from Mad Cow Disease in the United States every year. It is a cover-up of monumental proportions.
I became interested in Mad Cow Disease when it became a serious problem in Europe. It seemed strange that a centuries old sheep disease was suddenly running rampant in European cattle. I stopped believing the assertion that Americans were in no danger when the Food and Drug Administration announced that gelatin, a product made from the hooves and other parts of bovines, could no longer be considered safe for human consumption. And so I got on the phone, and I began asking very pointed questions that made some People very nervous, and others very scared, and I knew then that I was on to something big.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is an ancient disease that has historically only infected sheep. Every shepherd is familiar with scrapie. No sheep has ever been known to survive the disease. The brain of a sheep infected with scrapie is riddled with holes and looks like a sponge.
The cause of scrapie was a mystery until the mid 70s when Dr. Stanley Prusiner at the University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, doing research on the cause of Creutzfeld-Jacob disease of the elderly discovered the Prion, proteinacious infectious particle, a protein molecule without genetic material that is somehow mysteriously formed from normally benign protein molecules, the foundation of all life. Dr. Prusiner won the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his discovery.
Prions are the cause of Creutzfeld-Jacob disease of the elderly, scrapie, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or Mad Cow Disease, transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) or Downer Cow Syndrome, and possibly, but not yet proven, Alzheimer's Disease. The incubation period in animals is about 5 years, and in humans around 10 years. The immune system will not attack Prions because they are exactly the same protein that makes up the body but in a malignant form. The Disease destroys the brain of the infected animal or human and it is always fatal. There is no cure.
Prions are not germs, bacteria, viruses, or parasites. They cannot be killed by any known medicine. Cooking meat well-done will not kill Prions. Boiling food will not kill Prions. No known precaution or procedure can prevent infection of animals or humans who consume Prion infected food products. It appears that the only sure method of killing Prions is cremation.
The Agriculture Department and the Centers for Disease Control of the United States government have issued repeated assurances to the American People that there is no danger from Mad Cow Disease (BSE), and the media has dutifully spread their message. According to the example set by President Clinton they told the truth. Remember, "...it depends upon what your definition of "is" is?" They have simply used a trick of semantics to lull us into a deadly sleep.
After lengthy discussions with a few old country veterinarians I learned to ask the right questions and began to get some terrifying answers. In this country it is not called BSE, or Mad Cow Disease, even though it is exactly the same disease, with the same symptoms, and exactly the same result. Here it is called transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, (TSE), or Downer Cow Syndrome. Depending upon who's statistics you use, it kills from a quarter million to 1 million cattle each year in the United States.
So how and when did this sheep disease begin to infect the general animal population, and subsequently the human population? The general consensus of learned opinion is that the practice of grinding up animal waste, processing it, and then feeding it back to farm animals as a protein supplement is how the disease is spread. Cattle infected with Mad Cow Disease began to appear about 8 years later. Most all farm animals, in most developed nations, that will eventually end up on someone's dinner plate, are fed with this animal waste protein supplement.
My research revealed that it is not just the government that likes to play with words. There are a lot of People involved in the meat industry from farms, to ranches, transportation, feed lots, stockyards, slaughter-houses, butchers, meat packers, canneries, cold storage, restaurants, markets, and large food chains. None of these People wanted to admit to me that any meat anywhere in the United States might be infected with Mad Cow Disease, or despite the records of Veterinarians, Downers Cow Syndrome (TSE).
The latest figures from Europe indicate that People are spooked. The average price of meat has fallen by at least 25% and average consumption has dropped 27% just since October. In Germany two Ministers have lost their jobs with a 36% drop in meat prices and a 50% decline in consumption. Testing and cremation of infected animals has not stopped the spread of the disease. The numbers of infected animals are now so large that carcasses are piling up around crematoriums and the stench wafts for miles upon the breeze. Europe's meat industry is in serious trouble.
Prions are known to be spread from cows to their calves in the womb. If that can happen why not from chickens to their eggs? What is safe to eat and what is not? Is animal waste fertilizer spreading this disease to vegetable crops? How concerned should we be? And who can we trust, if anyone, to answer these questions truthfully?
Those Mysterious Lines in the Sky
by Jay Reynolds
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 29, 2001 -- Over the past several years, many reports of high altitude aircraft emitting unusual contrails http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/wxwise/class/contrail.html have been made. These reports, appearing in print, on radio, and the Internet have generated speculation about the origin, purpose, and effects of these lines which appear to be more numerous over the years. This article will examine the answers to these questions, suggest some explanations for what is being seen, and describe what is not yet known about the subject.
HUGE Middle East WAR looms in near future!
William Cooper Predicts
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 18, 2001 -- The following indicators point to a major Middle East war erupting in the very near future. When reading this remember that Bush is an oilman like his father.
1. Israel has told its Citizens to prepare for a real war and has asked for a call-up of all reserves.
2. Arab States have entered into a mutual defense pact.
3. Palistinian/Israeli/Arab relations are at the lowest point since the 6 Day War.
4. President Clinton's Middle East interference increased tensions and destroyed what peace had existed.
5. Price of oil at this time is fluctuating around $29 per barrel and predicted to plunge.
6. Although the present price of oil is not high enough to be profitable for American drillers, and the experts are predicting a price plunge, Texas and Oklahoma insiders are drilling like crazy. They are spending money on oil drilling equipment and new exploration like the old "Burkburnett field" had just been discovered.
7. The only place the drillers could have obtained inside information that would make such ventures profitable is from the mouth of George W. Bush himself, a seasoned oil business professional who is now President.
8. The only information that Bush could give them that would make them believe that the price of oil is going to go up instead of down is that he will engage the United States in a major war in the Middle East.
9. Bush has a score to settle on behalf of his father ex-President George H. W. Bush the man who engaged us in the Gulf War but failed to take down Saddam Hussein... a failure for which he has been severely criticized.
10. The economy is in trouble with a recession predicted.
11. Every time in the last 30 years the economy has been in trouble there has been an oil crisis, or an oil shortage with accompanying inflation. The problem was always blamed on the oil crisis that always proved later to have been a lie.
12. If there is a major war in the Middle East you can expect to see oil to soar to a bare minimum of $80 per barrel, possibly much higher.
13. The US military is gearing up for a war in the Middle East.
14. All US forces in Europe and the Middle East have been placed on alert.
15. Patriot Missiles are being readied for deployment to Israel.
16. The Federal Reserve has shifted back to Keynesian economics according to Greenspans last speech.
17. Bush has pledged to rebuild the military and the best way to do it is to create a need i.e. WAR.
18. I have been informed by several military officers that we will be involved in a major war in the Middle East within one year of Bush taking office as President of the United States.
19. The goal of the war will be to solve the Palistinian/Israel problem with finality, completely destroy the Arab capability to make war upon Israel, and to capture or kill Saddam Hussein.
20. Raw materials and defense industry stocks will replace tech stocks as the big money makers on the stock exchange for the next few years.
Global Warming is a LIE! We are in the beginning stages of the next Ice Age.
by William Cooper
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 17, 2001 -- When I was in the Navy attached to the Intelligence Briefing Team of Admiral Bernard Clarey, then CINCPACFLT, a Top Secret government scientific report surfaced claiming that we were then in the beginning stages of the next ice age. The report was classified at such a high level due to the implications for the civilian populations of the higher latitudes.
Concerned scientists began warning us as far back as the early 1970's despite government disapproval. And I revealed the contents of the report that I had seen beginning in 1988 during my lectures, and again in my book Behold A Pale Horse which was published in December of 1991. Global warming is a bold faced lie serving a Marxist political agenda.
The history of the world's weather patterns are recorded in trees, rocks, glacial deposits, lakes, the ocean depths, and in the ice caps at both poles. Scientists have figured out how to read this history and its message is unmistakable. The evidence tells us that the world weather cycles are regular, predictable, and dependable. The evidence tells us that we are already in the beginning stages of the next ice age.
Every cycle consists of accelerating cold culminating in what has become known as an ice age immediately followed by warming known as an interglacial period. Scientists have discovered that there have been 7 ice ages and 7 interglacial periods over the last 800,000 years. Each Ice Age lasted for 100,000 years give or take a few thousand, and each interglacial warming period has lasted from 10,000 to 12,000 years only. According to this evidence, which in some cases is literally written in stone, we may be a thousand years overdue for an ice age. But that's not all.
The earth's record tells us that the level of CO2 has played a decisive roll in deciding the onslaught of an ice age, and it is exactly the opposite effect of what the global warming con-artists have asked us to believe. Scientists have discovered that every time in history that the carbon dioxide (CO2) content of the atmosphere has exceeded 290 parts per million an ice age has occurred without fail. The level of CO2 in the earths atmosphere currently exceeds 360 parts per million. The level of CO2 in the atmosphere also tells us that we are overdue for an ice age. But that's not all.
The true statistics taken by those who conduct legitimate research at the poles tell us that the ice caps are not shrinking but growing. The official numbers coming from Alaska and from the Canadian government scientists tell us that glaciers are not melting but getting larger. The temperature readings of the atmosphere taken by satellites tell us that the atmosphere is not warming but cooling. But that's not all.
It has recently been discovered that the figures touted in support of global warming were intentionally computed in a manner that inflated the statistics by as much as 40% in error. It has also been revealed that much of the data in support of global warming has been taken from large cities and populated areas where concrete captures and holds heat from the sun giving false inflated data. Temperature readings taken from remote rural areas confirm the satellite readings. And this winter record cold has surfaced everywhere toppling official records around the globe.
Legitimate scientists have been warning us that an ice age cometh since the early 70's. Any intelligent person who examines the data without any other agenda than an objective assessment of future weather patterns will reach the same conclusion. We are in the beginning stages of the next ice age and there isn't anything whatsoever that we can do to stop it... so we had damn well better get ready.
According to history the temperature will creep lower, very slowly, year by year, over thousands of years until the higher latitudes are covered with ice in the form of glaciers. Most of the food producing land in those same latitudes will become inhospitable, unproductive, and for the most part uninhabitable.
The United States government classified the report that I read as Top Secret because they did not know what to do about it then, and they do not know what to do about it now. In the face of an ever increasing world population the problem seems insurmountable. Is it? Are we helpless against the forces of nature? What, if anything, can we do to prepare for the inevitable?
Promoting the hoax of global warming in order to increase government control, and especially global government control, to delay dealing with the problem is not an answer, but guaranteed disaster... on a scale that I don't even want to think about. How about you? Are you finally ready to face the facts and deal with this problem, or will we continue in the lie in the interest of a massive global reduction in population?
The Marxist agenda of the new world order calls for a massive reduction in the world's population. An ice age, for which no one is prepared, is guaranteed to do the job. And that is the true purpose of the lie known as global warming.
Government Created AIDS Virus CONFIRMED!
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 15, 2001 -- Boyd Ed Graves J.D. has confirmed William Cooper's research from the 1970's and 80's, which was published in Cooper's book in 1991, that the AIDS Virus was created at Fort Deitrich, Maryland under Project MK-NAOMI as a population control, targeting Blacks and Hispanics in third world nations, and homosexuals worldwide. Read our exclusive story on this page and then read Cooper's book, "Behold A Pale Horse". You will find information on Dr. Boyd Ed Graves and his book "State Origin: The Evidence of the Laboratory Birth of AIDS" on the following web sites: http://stateorigin.sun-city.net/ and http://sun-city.net/stateorigin/flowchart2.GIF
Proved RIGHT again!
This story was revealed in "Behold A Pale Horse" by William Cooper 10 years ago.
AIDS flowchart discoverer featured in documentary that proves AIDS originated in US government biological warfare project.
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 12, 2000 -- (St. Louis, MO) An independent film crew from Nashville will begin filming this Friday of new author, Boyd E. Graves' book, "STATE ORIGIN: The Evidence of the Laboratory Birth of AIDS." In August 1999, Graves stunned the international scientific community when he unveiled the flowchart of a federal virus development program. World experts continue to validate the flowchart as the "missing link" in the true laboratory origin of AIDS.
"Although the 'Special Virus' 'Flow Chart' is seemingly structured in such a manner that the world would not immediately recognize the real purpose of this officially sanctioned U.S. Federal program, one has to ask oneself 'WHY was the 'Flow Chart' even structured in the first place?'" according to Dr. Basil Wainwright, Kenya.
The flowchart coordinates over 20,000 scientific papers and 15 years of progress reports which detail every experiment and contract of the secret Manhattan project. "Few people are aware that the Manhattan project of the 1940's is the true birthplace of the AIDS virus," said Graves. "We are very fortunate to have found the flowchart, it makes our argument irrefutable."
"We believe review of the experiments conducted under Phase IV of the flowchart will lead to immediate breakthroughs for people living with HIV/AIDS. We can affirmatively demonstrate a federal program (plot) seeking to "create," "produce" and "proliferate" a virus." said Graves.
In 1977, the U.S. government produced 15, 000 gallons of AIDS (Special Virus). Earlier this year, Graves research was validated when top officials from the NIH and NCI confirmed the existence of the secret virus program.
Independent film producer, Brent Leung is heading up the Nashville film crew. According to Graves' publicist, Joel Bales, "'STATE ORIGIN' will be on the shelf by inauguration day. "Once the dust finally settles from the current political tug of war, the laboratory origin of AIDS will dominate the social agenda of humanity, well into the 21st Century."
"It may take some people another hundred years to understand the significance of finding the government's flowchart, in essence, the 'blueprint' of how they made AIDS."
The discovery of the AIDS flowchart will ultimately be regarded as one of the greatest document finds in the history of the world. "I am hopeful the film will capture, a perspective of the truly 'warped mentality' that vigorously led to the hunt, capture and distribution of AIDS."
"If an earthquake has two epicenters - like the AIDS virus: rest assured, just as it was in the Wizard of Oz there IS someone behind a curtain!"
All out WAR in Middle East?
William Cooper Predicts:
Veritas News Service - Exclusive, January 2, 2000 -- WAR will expand in Middle East following the New Year's Eve wave of attacks, murders, and bombings against Jews. Israel will retaliate against Palistinians and Arab supporters. The new mutual defense pact signed by most all Gulf Arab States means an alliance against Israel if any one of them are attacked. Peace is absolutely out of the question following the "New Year bloodbaths" and Clinton is to blame for all of it.
Official NASA Photograph -- The lab technician that faked this photo intentionally placed the AstroNOT several feet above the Moon's surface to tell us that the photo is a fraud. You might also take a very close look at all the shadows and discrepancies in the angle of the sun in relation to what it illuminates and what it does not illuminate. This is only one of thousands of official NASA photographs proven to be fakes thanks to patriotic NASA employees who did everything possible to reveal the lie of the Apollo Space Program.
by William Cooper, and Betty Schier, with quotes from Jon Roland
VERITAS News Service, Exclusive -- Words have meaning. There is a process we may use to determine the specific meaning of the word Militia both in the language and under the law. The 1971 edition of The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary defines:
Militia - 1. A system of military discipline, organization, and tactics; manner of conducting warfare; the arts of war. 2. The control and administration of the military and naval forces of a country. 3. A military force esp. the body of soldiers in the service of a sovereign or a state; in later use employed in more restricted sense to denote a "citizen army" as distinguished from a body of mercenaries or professional soldiers. 4.b. U.S. "The whole body of men declared by law amendable to military service, without enlistment, whether armed and drilled or not."
Militia - To call out as Militia
Militiaman - A member of a military force.
Black's Law Dictionary further defines these terms. Bear in mind that words have meaning. Under the law the words may not mean what you think.
Also, you will note in the following definition that the Militia is not subordinate to the state or any other body. The body of citizens constitutes the body of authority to which the Militia answers.
Militia - The body of citizens in a state, enrolled for discipline as a military force, but not engaged in actual service except in emergencies, as distinguished from regular troops, or a standing army. State v. Dawson, 272 N.C. 535, 159 S.E.2d 1, 9
Militiamen - Comprehends every temporary citizen-soldier who in time of war or emergency enters active military service of the country. Critchlow v. Monson, 102 Utah 378 131 P.2d 794, 798
The first U.S. document in law is, "The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America". It sets out the reasons and justifications for our separation from England and the Revolutionary War that followed. The document places the decision and the power in the hands of the people, and was clearly meant to be enforced by the Militia, a citizen1s army. That army, the Continental Army of the Republic, won our Independence.
The Declaration of Independence (http://www.williamcooper.com/DecInd.htm) clearly states:
"That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such from, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness... But when a long train of abuses and usurpation's, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security."
It becomes much clearer. Our Founding Fathers frequently discussed the meaning and purpose of the Militia. I suggest you read the Federalist Papers, No. 24 through 34. You will find a complete argument for the Militia as a "citizens army" consisting of "the whole of the people," designed to allay the public fears of a despotic central government.
The following statements may be found:
"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government." ... Federalist Papers, No. 28, Section 8
"It may safely be received as an axiom in our political system that the state governments will, in all possible contingencies, afford complete security against the invasions of public liberty by the national authority." Federalist Papers, No. 8, Section 8
The Constitution for the united States of America (http://www.williamcooper.com/contxt.htm) is the Supreme Law of the land. It recognizes the Militia as an already existing force outside the control of the federal government but allows for the Congress to call forth the Militia for three very specific occurrences. The Militia cannot be called up to perform any other acts outside of the three specifically stated in the Constitution. The Militia cannot be called upon to do anything unconstitutional, illegal, or unlawful. Indeed, the commanders must refuse any unconstitutional, illegal, or unlawful order.
The Constitution for the United States of America states in Article 1, Section 8:
"To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrection and repel Invasions; To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress."
Still fearful of an oppressive central government, the states rejected the Constitution. They finally agreed to adopt the instrument, but only after penning further safeguards; to protect the individual and the several states, 10 amendments were added, which came to be known as the Bill of Rights (http://www.williamcooper.com/bilrtstx.htm).
The Preamble of those amendments, Article II, and Article X are of particular note:
Preamble - "The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added; and as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution."
Article II - "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Article X - "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Because freedom, yours and mine, is ultimately dependent upon the rights guaranteed by all these words, all with specific meaning, it is imperative that we understand the meaning. A Militia is an armed citizenry which, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, "...is not a part of the regular armed forces, but is on call for service in an emergency." The Federalist Papers show that the, "Militia," referred to in the Second Amendment, is, "the armed citizenry." It is the right of the, "people," not the right of any government entity, which it protects.
"The security of a free state" clearly presupposes that the state (the citizenry) is free, and needs to secure that freedom by defending the Constitution for the United States - the guarantor of that freedom - "against all enemies, foreign and domestic," the oath I took twice when I entered the Air Force, and then later, the Navy.
"Enemies foreign" obviously refers to entities or governments not of our country. "Enemies domestic" can only refer to an entity or government of our country, i.e., a government which would choose to make itself an enemy of the people by depriving its citizens of their Constitutionally protected natural rights. This is called tyranny. The primary reason for, and purpose of, a Militia, an armed citizenry, a Militia available to a government of the people but beyond the purview of a government against the people, is to secure the freedom of the people against such a government.
The active clause in the second Article in amendment is "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The phrase, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State," is the descriptive clause. The meaning is clear.
The Militia, as you have just learned, is a "citizens army" made up of the "whole of the people" for the purpose of guarding against "betrayal by their representatives," to "afford complete security against the invasions of public liberty by the national authority," and if either occurs it is their right, their duty, "to throw off such a government, and to provide new guards for their future security." and that is not all...
Jon Roland puts it this way:
"Some commit the non sequitur that reserving the training of Militias and the training of their officers to the states, as provided in Article 1, Section 8, Para. 16, means delegating an exclusive power to the state governments. It is clear from the language, and from historical analysis of the development of the Constitution that 'reserving to the states' only means the power is denied to the national government. For the Framers, the State was the 'people of the state, 'not the 'government of the state'. When they wanted to indicate the government of a state, they
used the language 'Legislature of the State,' as they did in Article 1, Section 8, Para. 17. It was left to the people of each state to decide what powers, if any, to delegate to their state government for organizing and training Militias and for the appointment of the officers.
In the absence of such delegation of authority, under common law and established practice during the period in which the Constitution was adopted, the authority defaults to local communities. The practice was for Militias to be organized by county or township, usually under the authority of the highest elected law enforcement official, such as the sheriff or constable. However, any credible person could call up the Militia, as Paul Revere did during his famous midnight ride.
My domicile is in Arizona. I cannot cover the Constitution and statutes of every state (http://www.williamcooper.com/Militial.htm), so I will cover Arizona as representative of the average state. You should make a thorough study of the Constitution and statutes of your particular state because while most are essentially the same there are a few states with major differences, such as New York.
The Constitution of Arizona states:
Article 2, Bearing Arms - Section 26. The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the State shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men. The restriction came as a result of the Arizona cattle wars.
The laws of the state of Arizona are clear. Under Title 26, Article 2, Militia, Section 26-121 it outlines the composition of the Militia and the persons exempt. Notice who is exempt. And understand that the definition of exempt in the law means prohibited. Those prohibited are the very ones who might betray the people. They therefore cannot be allowed to function as members of the Militia, the last refuge of the people against tyranny.
"The Militia of the state of Arizona consists of all able-bodied citizens of the state between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years and all residents of the state between such ages who have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, except: "1. Person exempted by the laws of the state or the United States. 2. Idiots, lunatics, totally blind persons and persons convicted of infamous crimes. 3. Judges and clerks of courts of record. 4. State and county civil officers holding office by election, and members of the legislature."
Title 26, Section 26-122. "Components of Militia - A. The Militia is divided into the National Guard of Arizona, the state guard when organized, and the unorganized Militia. ...E. The unorganized Militia consists of members of the Militia not members of the National Guard or state guard when organized."
Most people would stop here - that is, if they even got this far. But there is more, a lot more. The United States has a Militia. It is outlined in the United States Code. We will use the 1988 edition, Volume Three, Title 10 - Armed Forces:
Chapter 13 - "The Militia, Section 311, Militia: composition and classes - (a) The Militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are commissioned officers of the National Guard. (b) The classes of the Militia are - (1) the organized Militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and (2) the unorganized Militia, which consists of the members of the Militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia."
So you see, there is a lot to this Militia stuff. It goes on to list virtually the same and more exempted persons and for the same reasons as Arizona. Title 32 mentioned above makes persons who were honorably discharged from the armed forces members of the Militia until the age of 64, the maximum age that one may become a member of the National Guard, up until no longer physically or mentally able to serve. Read all this yourself for a complete understanding. It is much easier to understand than you may think.
There are many Militias. The first is, and always will be, the Militia of the "whole of the people," armed to protect themselves from betrayal by their representatives and from a government that might become, or has become, a tyrant. The second, third, and fourth is the Militia of the state, the National Guard, state guard, and the unorganized Militia of the several states of the union. The fifth, sixth, and seventh is the United states Militia, the National Guard, Naval Militia, and the unorganized Militia of the federal government, its possessions, territories, and trusts.
Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to James Madison, said, "A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general and particular. ..." Again, in his First Inaugural Address, he included among the, "essential principles of our government ...a well disciplined Militia [and] the supremacy of the civil over the military authority: ...and should we wander from [these principles] in moments of error and alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety."
18 USCS, Section 1385 - "Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus - Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posses comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both." (added Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, Section 18(a), 70 A Stat. 626; June 25, 1959, P.L. 86-70, Section 17(d), 73 Stat. 144.)
We the people, the citizenry, have both a right and a responsibility, a duty, individually and collectively, to keep and bear arms, in order to defend ourselves against all enemies of our Constitution and the rights and freedoms thereby guaranteed. What kind of arms? Any kind it takes! Obviously, arms must be kept and borne in a responsible manner in order to serve the Constitutionally stated need and purpose.
The Second Amendment is not concerned, as some absurdly would suggest, with hunting and sporting rights, albeit these rights exist, along with the right to defend our lives and property. The intent of the Second Amendment is to arm the citizenry to defend itself against every enemy or government on earth, foreign or domestic, which would make itself an enemy of the people of the several States or of the United States of America.
Government is the servant of an armed citizenry; it is the tyrant over an unarmed citizenry. (Witness the many tragic illustrations of this deplorable state around the world today.) No government by the people and for the people need fear the arms of the people; only a government against the people and their rights needs fear their arms. To lay down our arms is to transfer all power, all control, from the people to the government, thereby destroying, not securing, our freedom, for which once men were willing to die. The price of liberty, as Thomas Jefferson and others have warned, is eternal vigilance, and as I have warned... you must be willing to die for it.
This is not to be construed as an indictment against our government. But vigilance requires that we be ever aware that tyrannies have arisen, both from within and from without, throughout history; that history, indeed, often repeats itself; and that can happen here and it can happen now.
Arise from indifference, take a stand, unite, form Militias, and advise your congressmen of your resolve. Remind them that their duty is to serve the people as provided by our Constitution for the United States of America and that any action that they may perform that infringes upon our
Constitutionally protected rights will not be tolerated. And don't neglect to thank those congressmen who support and defend our rights - that is, if you can find one.
On September 15, 1994, President Clinton, in a speech, praised the patriots of the American Revolution for having taken up arms against a tyrannical government. I wonder if he knew or understood exactly what it was that he said. I wonder if he knew that he came dangerously close to being another tyrant.
Where does this leave us? The Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, 97th Congress, 2nd Session, February 1982, page 11 states:
"The 'Militia' refers to a concept of a universally armed people, not to any specifically organized unit. When the framers referred to the equivalent of our National Guard, they uniformly used the term 'select Militia' and distinguished this from 'Militia'. Debates over the Constitution constantly referred to organized Militia units as a threat to freedom comparable to that of a standing army, and stressed that such organized units did not constitute and indeed were philosophically opposed to, the concept of a Militia.
"That the National Guard is not the 'Militia' referred to in the Second Amendment is even clearer today. Congress has organized the National Guard under its power to 'raise and support armies' and not its power to 'provide for organizing, arming and disciplining the Militia'. (H.R. Report No. 141, 73rd Congress, 1st Session, February 5, 1953.) This Congress chose to do in the interest of organizing reserve military units which were not limited in deployment by the strictures of our power over the constitutional Militia, which can be called forth only 'to execute the laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel invasions'. The modern National Guard was specifically intended to avoid status as the constitutional Militia, a distinction recognized by Title 10 U.S.C. Section 311(a)."
A Militiaman is simply any citizen in his capacity as a defender of the community, who is obliged to do so within his or her ability. Militiahood is a role which citizens may play, as the situation requires. It is not a permanent condition. But just as each citizen has a duty to defend the community, he also has the duty to prepare himself to play that role effectively, and to join with others in his community to train and to function as organized forces; and the elected officials of his community have the duty to facilitate that organization and training. If those officials fail in their duty, the Militiaman must carry on without their participation.
The federal government can only call up the Militia for those things specifically outlined in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution for the United States of America. Militiamen cannot answer a call from the federal government for any other purpose. The Militia may be called up by a state governor for many reasons other than those cited in the Constitution for the United States of America. No Militiaman can ever answer any call that would involve him or his unit in anything that is illegal, unlawful, or unconstitutional. No Militia unit or Militiaman can ever accept or carry out any order that is illegal, unlawful, or unconstitutional. If the federal or State government ignores the restraints put upon them by their constitutions and constitutional laws, the Militia is obligated, it is their duty, to march upon that government and enforce the laws of the State or of the federal government and restore those Constitutions as the supreme law of the land.
America is forgetting its history. It was the Militia that created this nation. It was the Militia that freed the slaves. The Black Panthers was a Militia. It has been the Militia that has fought most of the nation's battles... and it has been Militiamen that have suffered most of the casualties of the nation's wars.
The ADL is against the Second Amendment, the Militia, and Freedom of Speech. It is most probable that the Anti Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has an agenda that is not in the best interest of American Jews or Americans in general. Maybe the ADL has forgotten, or maybe never knew the history of the its own People. It was a Jewish Militia that fought against Rome. It was a Jewish Militia that rose up in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was the Militia that protected Jews in Palestine. It was the Militia that created the State of Israel. It is the Militia that protects the villages and towns of Israel today. It is the Militia called the Jewish Defense League that professes to protect Jews worldwide.
"Jewish Defense League upholds the principle of Barzel -- iron -- the need to both move to help Jews everywhere and to change the Jewish image through sacrifice and all necessary means -- even strength, force and violence. The Galut image of the Jew as a weakling, as one who is easily stepped upon and who does not fight back is an image that must be changed. Not only does that image cause immediate harm to Jews but also
it is a self-perpetuating thing. Because a Jew runs away or because a Jew allows himself to be stepped upon, he guarantees that another Jew in the future will be attacked because of the image that he has perpetuated. JDL
wants to create a physically strong, fearless and courageous Jew who fights back. We are changing an image, an image born of 2,000 years in the Galut, an image that must be buried because it has buried us. We train ourselves for the defense of Jewish lives and Jewish rights. We learn how to fight physically, for it is better to know how and not have to, than have to and not know how." - Jewish Defense League
The Jewish Defense League is indeed a Jewish Militia. It's dedication and sacrifice in protecting Jews worldwide is commendable. It is sad, however, that the JDL practices exactly what its enemy1s practice... racism. The Jewish Defense League protects only Jews therefore it is not a lawful Militia within the borders of the United States of America.
It was the Militia that fought against the might of the Soviet Union in Hungary. The Militia of the Mujahadeen fought them in Afghanistan. And Militias fight the Russian tyranny today.
I could go on for another 100 pages listing the accomplishments of brave Militiamen in the fight for Freedom throughout the history of the world, and upon the battlefields of today. But... if you do not yet understand that no one volunteers to fight on the side of despotism, but only on the side of Freedom... another 500 pages would not make a difference in your thinking.
"A nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals that have no intelligence. Such people are beasts of burden and steaks on the table by choice and consent." Quote from Chapter One of Behold A Pale Horse, by William Cooper
Seek out and join the Militia. And if you cannot find one start one up yourself.
