Quest for Fair Trial in Concord, NH
posted by The Freedom Fellowship at
Submitted to the Concord Monitor (bet they won't print it):Reading various accounts of the Ed and Elaine Brown saga in several newspapers, I suspect that most of them were either written for the papers by the PR department of the IRS, or at least edited by them. The slant is just too great to be genuine or unbiased.What happened in the Brown court is not unlike what happens in hundreds of tax cases tried around the country every day. Pre-trial motions are heard by the judge before the jury is brought in. The judge disallows whatever the prosecutor doesn't want the defense to present, i.e., anything the prosecutor cannot counter.Jurors are already misled in their briefings and in the oath they are forced to take. They are not only not told of their actual powers....to ignore the evidence, the law and their instructions from the judge and bring in a not-guilty verdict....they are told instead they must obey the instructions of the judge.An examination of the Federal Jury Instructions manual reveals these confidential statements to lawyers and judges (see: http://www.ca6.uscourts.gov/internet/crim_jury_insts/html/chap1_8.htm):"The jurors have the power to ignore the court's instructions and bring in a not guilty verdict contrary to the law and the facts...But they should not be told by the court that they have this power...They should instead be told that it is their duty to accept and apply the law as given to them by the court..."The jury is the People's last protection against abusive government but, over the past few decades, it has been gradually and cleverly converted to a rubber stamp for the prosecution. The legal profession has deliberately done this, and the media and Hollywood have helped them greatly. But even so, now and then the truth shines through.In the movie "The Verdict," a recovering alcoholic lawyer (Paul Newman) tells the jury, in his closing argument, "Today, YOU are the law." He is 100% correct, but the judge certainly did not tell the jury that.Once you see what can be found in the government's own manuals, why is it so difficult to, if not believe, at least become curious as to whether or not the government might have similarly misled us for 90 years regarding the tax code?The fact is that they have. There is no law....repeat, there is no law....which requires a typical American, who lives and works in the 50 states, to pay an income tax on his domestic income. No prosecutor in any federal tax trial has ever been able to produce or cite such a law because it does not exist. Yes, there are some very cleverly-worded implications, but no specific law. The only tax that is clearly imposed is imposed upon "taxable" income, and therein lies the brilliant scam. Most of us simply do not have any "taxable" income, and the tax code tells us that, although it is very cleverly concealed within the bowels of the code, in places we are told we shouldn't be looking.In about 15% of the tax cases that go to trial, juries are intelligent and alert and they acquit people like the Browns, not so much because they believe the defendants but because the prosecutors fail to prove their cases, especially when juries ask for the law and the court refuses to give it to them.So, 85% go to jail and 15% are released, although there is no material differences among them. The difference lies in the juries which do their job and the juries which can't come to grips with having been lied to by their government.Wouldn't it be nice if the County sheriff were to honor his oath of office and protect the county's residents from federal agents who have no jurisdiction or authority in his county without his blessing?Fred MarshallColumbus, Georgia
