IRS Commissioner Dodges Income Tax Question



Editor's Note:
We appreciate David Cay Johnston's (DCJ) act of asking this question. For the record, back in the summer of 2003 David Champion had challenged DCJ to debate Larken Rose. Many individuals, including this author, were in communication with DCJ over that summer trying to encourage him to debate Larken Rose and/or ask our servant government "what won't they respond to our questions" etc. This challenge - and the drama behind it - became an open internet discussion which was shared with thousands of people all over the world. We believe this activity worked to nudge DCJ to ask this very important question.

Friday, August 31 -- MakeTheStand.com Update

Dear Ed & Elaine Supporters,

We have some important updates for you today.


Fed's Try to Buy Way Into Browns' Property


The first update concerns a failed plot by the feds to capture Ed alive on his private property. The feds tried to get a dump truck driver to allow them to hide in his truck. They would then "jump out and taser Ed" when Ed went to pay the truck driver for the dirt he delivered. The truck driver refused to help them -- so the feds even went multiple times to his house. They began to BRIBE him with "MONEY" (Federal Reserve Notes -- wartime worthless paper scrip I'm sure). He didn't want to get in the middle of it. Can you believe the level the feds will stoop to? I can! We've been seeing it all along. To read the whole thing, CLICK HERE

MakeTheStand.com Launches Action Network for Persecuted Men and Women


This has been something in the works for quite some time. There are literally MILLIONS of men and women who have been terribly persecuted by the de facto government in America. Every day thousands are wrongfully arrested, imprisoned, robbed, and worse. Now we had a dedicated section in our forums for this sort of thing. People can post their stories, the facts, the evidence to the COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION. This is where you can shine the light on corruption and evil. Criminals beware!!! We have 3 people featured so far, Ray Karczewski©, myself, and my wife. Although I've been persecuted many times, the most recent was pretty bad. I was arrested for offering silver -- specifically the Liberty Dollar private currency -- at an outdoor ice cream place in Wisconsin. According to the Liberty Dollar creator, Bernard von NotHaus, this is only the 4th time that an arrest has occurred for trading (or offering in my case) the private solid silver currency. Is there no more freedom of trade in America? For more info, please check out: http://www.makethestand.com/forum-c3.html

"The illuminati...are about to lose power" - Benjamin Fulford


Chinese Secret Society Challenges Illuminati

By Henry Makow Ph.D.
June 29, 2007

A Chinese secret society with 6 million members, including 1.8 million Asian gangsters and 100,000 professional assassins, have targeted Illuminati members if they proceed with world depopulation plans, according to Tokyo-based journalist Benjamin Fulford, 46.

They contacted Fulford, a Canadian expat, after he warned that the Illuminati plan to reduce the Asian population to just 500 million by means of race-specific biological weapons.

----------snip-----------

CONCLUSION


Fulford says a meeting is being arranged with Russia’s Vladimir Putin to make sure the KGB also cooperates in this plan to snatch the eye out of the pyramid.

"So far, I have told the Illuminati that they are no longer allowed to murder Japanese politicians. I now plan to extend this protection to all politicians in the West. If the illuminati assassinate or attempt to assassinate Ron Paul, Barak Obama or any politician, may God have mercy on their souls."

"Since I am a peace-loving, laid-back Canadian suddenly put in a situation of great responsibility, I feel I must act as a servant of the weakest people and creatures on the planet. I have also been negotiating in secret with the Illuminati in the hopes of arranging for them to cede power without any bloodshed in exchange for a general amnesty.

'Trust me on this, the illuminati have failed because of their racism. Although other peoples understand that the West is a slave society, those living there do not realize it. The illuminati do not control China, India or now Russia. They are about to lose power. We are like people living in Berlin before the collapse of the Berlin wall. The illuminati are like the Wizard of Oz; once you pull aside the curtain you are surprized by how weak they really are. They rely on illusion. Once the illusion is gone, they are just a bunch of weak old men.

We Are Change Readies for 9/11/07

Feds try to buy their way in to Brown’s

This morning we received a head's up call from a friend, letting us know about the feds' latest games:

Last week we ordered a few loads of fill for our yard. The driver brought up 3 loads, but never came back to deliver the last 2; we heard no word from him. Today we learned why.

Apparently the feds stopped him and wanted him to allow them to hide inside his truck when he came here, and they would then jump out and tazer Ed when he went over to the truck to pay the man. The driver refused to do this. The feds then proceeded to go to his house several times, trying to get him to agree. They asked him how much money it would take for him to agree. God bless this man - he refused to have any part in this deception. It's good to know there are still many good and brave patriots.

Judge Orders a Web Site Selling Tax-Evasion Advice to Close

By DAVID CAY JOHNSTON
Published: August 30, 2007

A Web site that sells materials stating that individuals can legally stop paying taxes has been shut on the order of a federal judge.

Judge Thomas J. McAvoy, a senior judge in the Northern District of New York who issued the order on Aug. 9, wrote that the First Amendment did not protect the two organizations that operate the Web site, or their founder, because the site incited criminal conduct. Judge McAvoy ruled that some people who went to the Web site stopped paying taxes, causing the government harm.

Judge McAvoy also ordered that the names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and Social Security numbers of every person who received materials on how to stop paying taxes be turned over to the government.

This information would make it easy for the Internal Revenue Service to identify people who followed the illegal advice and for the Justice Department to prosecute them for tax crimes.

The civil court order is one of at least 245 permanent injunctions obtained by federal prospectors that prohibit individuals and organizations that deny the legitimacy of the tax laws or who sell tax evasion schemes from marketing their wares.

Robert L. Schulz of Queensbury, N.Y., the founder of both organizations behind the Web site — the We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education and the We The People Congress — posted the court order at the Web site givemeliberty.org, and closed the rest of the site even though he said yesterday that the order did not specify that he do so. He also said he had filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Read more here.

People Get Ready There's a False Flag Coming

Yes folks, it's that time again. If I was talking about the holiday season we'd be thinking about pumpkins and turkeys and holiday lights; Christmas shopping, school pageants and "chestnuts roasting on an open fire". But I'm not talking about the holiday season. I'm talking about the next terror attack. It won't be sugar plums dancing but the new booga booga bin laden dancing by way of Iran. It's time for 'Go west, young terrorist, go west.'

You've seen dozens of reports like this one appearing all over the official, mass-terror media. These reports are appearing for several reasons. One is to let you know that we know the "terrorists" are coming. We also need to let you know that even though we know they're coming we won't be able to stop them; the actual reason being that the actual terrorists are employed by the U.S. government. Another reason is simple confusion as exemplified in the motto of one of the chief terror players, "by way of deception, thou shalt do war." It's a given that deception is greatly aided by confusion. Think how helpful it was for war games to have been in progress during 9/11 that were simulating exactly what was happening.

We're seeing the strange 'put options' which are always a good indicator that both fan and shit are being readied back stage. We've got suspicious looking Middle Eastern men appearing in Seattle and flocks of geese walking over America's grave in The Bay Area,...enough with the links. We got links and you can get links too if your ipod dies or for some inexplicable reason you decide to pay attention to what's going on around you.

By this time most of us know that if it isn't the American neo-cons along with Israeli and British intelligence orchestrating the majority of all terror, domestic and abroad; including within Iraq, then its either aliens from outer space or those mysterious, inner earth dwellers, whose access ports to their underground realms are located at the poles.

Maybe the use of a little logic might help right about now. Who benefits from a major terror attack? Who has benefited from 9/11? Would Iran benefit from the coming terror attack that is going to be blamed on them? Hmmm... let's see. They become the beneficiary of a horrific bombing attack from a collective American, British and Israeli joint operation. Yeah, I guess they're really looking forward to that. Yeah, if I were an Iranian that would be at the top of my list of things to do; let's blow up something in America so that we can be pulverized into rubble.

How did the Afghani "al-Qaeda" do following 9/11? They made out like bandits right? Let's see, a bunch of guys, who couldn't fly small planes very well, got together and hi-jacked four big airliners and did some synchronized aerial ballet that would try the abilities of an expert and then they won the Power-ball Lottery or... or...

American neo-cons got a mandate to wreak havoc upon every area of American life while looting the treasury and maintaining power over the landscape; war profiteers in London, in the center of world banking, made fortunes and Israel was able to turn world opinion against the Muslim, Arab world; turn public attention away from their apartheid and genocide practiced on The Palestinians and give free reign to unrestrained hegemony, not to mention attack Lebanon.

I know what my common sense tells me but then, I have common sense.

Yes people, it's time to get ready. It's time to stock up on duct tape, plastic sheeting, staple guns and staples, bottled water, dehydrated foodstuffs and lots of guns and ammo.

So where and when is it going to happen? Find out HERE

AARON RUSSO - FREEDOM FIGHTER - REST IN PEACE

American Slaves: IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!!

American Slaves: IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!!

By: Raymond Ronald Karczewski©

Persecution is what happens to Real Men living in a Sissified world ruled by Tyrants.

Real men scare people with their Boldness, their Directness, their Assurance.
They Understand they are Sovereign and have long since matriculated from the School of Hard Knocks, the life changing transition experienced by all who will no longer bow and scrape before their Satanic masters as obedient Slaves and are ready to take their rightful position as Masters of their own lives.

Such men and women are rare indeed. They stick out like a sore thumb, and by contrast, mirror the average degraded, Satanically conditioned civilized individual. The contrast is shocking for most and it angers many. You see people just don't like being viewed as slaves. That is why they wear so many masks just to get through the day, living out their scripted and predictable lives.

These hopeless, impotent, civilized individuals take offense at the drop of a hat. They can't help it. They sold their souls a long time ago for the comforts of security, the prized possession of all Satanic serving slaves.

-------------snip-----------

You, the listening audience, look for anything to distract you from the action that is necessary to stop the Death March to the New World Order. Ed has told you what to do. I have told you AD-INFINITUM what must be done.

Demand of Government in a UNIFIED VOICE: "SHOW US THE LAW AND SHOW US YOUR JURISDICTION."

Until Servant Government does what their MASTERS tell them to do, ACT LIKE THE SOVEREIGNS YOU ARE AND TURN YOUR BACKS ON GOVERNMENT. BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT them. Refuse to cooperate in any and all phases of government, instead of allowing yourselves to be led around by that slavery ring in your noses, looking for any distraction to celebrate from your growing recognition of bondage.

----------------snip------------------

Have you noticed, Ed and Elaine don't play by the Rules of their Servant Government. Have you noticed that I don't play by the rules of my servant government? Why? Because we understand what it means to be a SOVEREIGN. We understand the True relationship between ourselves and government and WE DON'T PLAY THEIR GAME, unless they can SHOW US THE LAW AND SHOW US PROOF OF JURISDICTION.

Our words are our actions, our action are our words. WE live Truth, while you experience starved arm-chair quarterbacks merely speculate about it.

Harsh words, or DOES THE SHOE FIT??? You be the judge!

Raymond Ronald Karczewski©

Editor's Note: Ray acts like the thorns on a rosebush or a burr in the saddle. I don't judge or condemn him, but welcome his contribution to this discussion. I only wish there was some way for this message to awaken the masses from their slumber. The shoe doesn't fit.....yet Ray, but our feet keep growing.

Overt Lawlessness: A Good Sign

By Larken Rose

www.larkenrose.com

Sometimes I wonder why the IRS still bothers to pretend that what
it does is administering the law. Off hand, I can't think of ANY
law or procedure which I HAVEN'T seen the IRS blatantly ignore.
Here are just a few of the things the IRS has done wrong, just in
the cases I'm personally familiar with (and this is just off the
top of my head):

Failure to give Examinations meeting (26 CFR 601.105)
Failure to give Appeals meeting (26 CFR 601.106)
Failure to give Collections Due Process hearing (26 USC 6330)
Refusal to allow recording of meetings (26 USC 7521) (Even the Tax
Court chastised them for that one.)
Demands for sums known to be grossly inaccurate (aside from the
question of what income is taxable) (26 USC 7214)
Repeated use of the outlawed "tax protestor" term (Section 3707,
RRA 1998) (Even TIGTA reports that this is still happening every
year.)
Failure to comply with Freedom Of Information Act (5 USC 552)
Making assessments not conforming to the law (26 USC 6203)
Executing levies without giving notice (26 USC 6331)
Outright refusal to process claims for refund (26 CFR 601.105)

The list goes on and on. Take, for example, a few of the things
done by the IRS bureaucrat currently on my case (Mr. Ted
Tsarouchis). For those who don't know, in order to avoid extra
YEARS of imprisonment, Tessa and I filed back returns prior to my
sentencing, falsely reporting our income as if it were taxable
(when we know it isn't). Having paid off most of the hefty alleged
liabilities (by mortgaging our house to the max), I then applied
for an "installment agreement" with the IRS to pay off the rest.

"Thank You Aaron" Tribute Continues On Our RBN Show Today With Ed and Elaine


We are continuing to devote time on today's show - and perhaps again on Friday - to express our thanks to Aaron Russo.

Special Guests: One of our callers on todays show was "Steve" from North Carolina who is one of the organizers of a weekly "National Ron Paul Meetup Call" that takes place on Thursday beginning at 8 pm. Call 605-475-8500 PIN 5092984

Casey Lee Cobb, founder of "Show The Law.com" was our second guest on today's show. He made a very powerful point that the scene where Aaron Russo interviewed Sheldon Cohen, ex-commissioner of the IRS, who couldn't not respond with authority to the weight of Aaron's questions regarding the legitimacy of the US Government's tax on the labor of the average working American. Casey said that Sheldon's failure to "show the law" to Aaron Russo marked "the death of the IRS" in America. I don't have Casey's exact words, but he said something to the effect: "It was as if Aaron was there shining the light from cross of truth on the face of evil itself and all that face of evil could do is shrink away into the darkness."

Henry Nicolle was our third guest on the show. Henry was/is the California coordinator for the "independent" America: Freedom To Fascism volunteer network. Henry is a very eloquent individual and he did a great job praising Aaron and his "never give up" spirit and energy to support and advance the cause of freedom and liberty in America.

Bob Schulz, founder of We The People Foundation, was our fourth guest. Bob didn't get a chance to talk about Aaron as we invited him on the show to talk about his decision to shut down We The People Foundation's websites in compliance with the federal court's injunction.

If you would like say "thank you Aaron" please share a personal thought or story of how he influenced you in any way please call into the show at 800-313-9443 or send us an email to thankyouaaron@gmail.com. Read more here. Listen here.

Coming Soon To A Major City Near You!!

Local Troops Deploy To Nation's Capital

POSTED: 12:20 pm EDT August 22, 2007
UPDATED: 11:54 am EDT August 24, 2007

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Members of the 1st Battalion 265 Air Defense Artillery have mobilized and are on a plane headed first to Ft. Bliss, then for federal active duty in the capital region.

The troops will be deployed for a year.

"It's going to be all right It's OK if he helps people and everything, and it's his job. He’s got to do it. He just got to do it," Jessica Ward said, whose father is being deployed.

Jessica speaks for many when she talks about her father's deployment.

Michael Ward and company are leaving for a year, and that weighs heavy on families.

The 265th is part of Operation Noble Eagle.

They are ordered by the president to the nation's capital, where they will operate high-tech weapons systems against any potential air threat. Read more here.

Ed & Elaine Fund Raiser Goes Full Steam

August 27, 2007

Dear Ed & Elaine Supporters,

We would like to thank everyone who has donated so far to the fund raiser. We've raised $600 so far -- in under a week. Furthermore, we haven't put out ANY message on this matter. We were waiting to be able to accept checks/money orders via mail. Now we can, so the MESSAGE IS GOING OUT. Please help us get this message out, and please send what you can -- if you can spare anything -- so that we can help Ed & Elaine with any and all supplies they need -- supplies that may very well save their lives. Here's a chance for just about everyone to help the cause -- DIRECTLY -- by helping Ed & Elaine. 100% of the money goes to their needs for supplies and to pay for their expenses. By donating -- you are not supporting an organization. You are supporting two living, breathing, flesh-and-blood, sentient, natural sovereign people.

If we don't each help stop them at Ed & Elaine's door, there may be no one to help stop them at OUR doors. I want to point out that Ed & Elaine are NOT asking for help. This is something that us supporters of Ed & Elaine are organizing and taking care of. Ed has approved the fund raiser. They just don't want people to think this is about money -- BECAUSE IT IS NOT. However, there are some very real needs we have for their property and safety. There are a small number of "main" supporters and we can't afford to bankroll this thing by ourselves. So we are asking for WHATEVER each man or woman can spare -- whether it be one dollar or one million dollars. If thousands or tens of thousands of people each donated just a few dollars -- we would be set.

We're trying to reach a goal of $5,000 for this month -- and we're $600 into it with just a few more days to go. I know we can do it. We're going to raise $10,000 next month. So please give what you can, and then help spread the word by posting, emailing, talking on the radio -- whatever it takes! Let everyone know that NOW is the time to stand behind Ed & Elaine -- no matter where you live. Your support will enable those of us on the ground to do what needs to be done. Thank you!!!

Remember that MakeTheStand.com is the ONLY place that is authorized to accept money for Ed & Elaine -- beware of anyone else that isn't linking to us! To donate securely online via credit/debit/paypal/bank account please CLICK HERE NOW

To donate by mail, send check/money order payable to SHAUN A KRANISH© and mail to:

Liberty Defense Fund

Back to the Future with Aaron Russo

By Bill Price

Aaron Russo brought America back to the future. America was living in the fog of the past until Russo’s vision, the memory of a shared dream, was brought back into full view. But, that dream was destined to collide with another dream created out of the past. A dream conjured by George Orwell in his famous novel, 1984. Aaron’s formal quest for truth became a continuation of the phenomenon first seen in the ghost released through Orwell’s book. The specter raised through Orwell’s ghost of the future (big brother) was courageously confronted and then catapulted into the American consciousness by Aaron Russo. Aaron’s work has become a permanent landmark for courage and freedom, not only here in America, but the entire world. I talked to Aaron only twice in my life, but was tremendously impressed with his simplicity and candor in our brief conversations.

News Report From Bob Schulz



"WMD" is to the war against Iraq as WTP’s "Blue Folder" is to the war against the Right to Petition

Sleightful

Once again, our servant federal Government has employed an indirect, ingenious, and most cunning means to achieve a nefarious end.

Whether the end is a justification for an immoral war against Iraq or a war against the Right to Petition and accountability, it makes no difference to the Government – the ends justify the means.

Doubtless, from the White House to the Government’s lawyers and tax collectors, we have a clever bunch of tyrants treading on us.

Here’s a clue to the latest factual chapter in the continuing epic tale about WTP and the Right to Petition, which we present to you below:

Coupled convicted of crime that DOESN'T EXIST

A New Hampshire Couple was convicted by an illegal federal court in Concord NH, of not paying a direct tax on their labor. Ed and Elaine Brown walked out of the illegitimate court after not being allowed to introduce evidence in their defense. The Couple was cut off by the court every time they tried to bring the truth to their fellow Americans on the jury, just as Irwin Schiff was his denied due process in his 2005 trial. Irwin is now rotting in prison for a non-crime. The tyrant has now forced the Brown's hand to protect the truth, their property, and their liberty with their second amendment right. They are left no choice. If a person believes all trials are conducted in a fair and impartial manner in this country, they are sadly mistaken, and probably have never been through a court trial acting Pro Se.

Message from Ron Paul

From: Ron Paul
Sent: Wednesday, August 22, 2007 11:32 AM
Subject: Message from Ron Paul

August 22, 2007

Not all the media are biased. A local newspaper in New Hampshire reported on an annual GOP bbq in the town of Hollis. It could be called "the Ron Paul show," they said, since the far bigger crowd that usual consisted mostly of our supporters. One volunteer even rented an airplane and flew a wonderful sign around the sky. What great, creative, self-starting people I'm meeting, at every stop, all of them united by a love of America and American freedom.

Politics is usually about division. But this campaign is just the opposite. Not only are our volunteers a bunch of happy warriors, but they also practice the virtues of tolerance and peace, just as they want the nation to do.

Larken Rose Comments On Tom Cryer

I just finished reading the trial transcripts of the case of Tommy Cryer, the Louisiana lawyer recently ACQUITTED of "willful failure to file." I only have a few comments about it:

1) First, the judge at his trial was both extremely obnoxious and an idiot. (Well, maybe he was intentionally lying instead, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he was merely an idiot.) Aside from being excessively rude and condescending towards Larry Becraft, Mr. Cryer's attorney, as Mr. Cryer was testifying about his beliefs, the judge kept completely mischaracterizing them as beliefs that the tax laws are invalid or unconstitutional, which anyone paying attention could see that Mr. Cryer was NOT at all saying.

Ron Paul Exposes the Matrix


Ron Paul and the Matrix

by John J. Smalanskas

I had to wipe Earl Grey tea spray from my computer screen as I laughed and watched the very entertaining Ron Paul is the Matrix YouTube on the Lew Rockwell Breaking News blog. The Matrix–Ron Paul connection is a perfect fit. In The Matrix (in case you live in a duct tape and plastic enrobed house without outside communication), Neo (Keanu Reeves) is given a choice by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to take the blue pill, wake up in your bed "and believe whatever you want to believe," or, take the red pill and "stay in Wonderland and [see] how deep the rabbit hole goes." The Matrix, as Morpheus explains to Neo, is a computer generated program or "dreamworld" created by artificial intelligence (machines) to keep humanity under control and to use humans as its primary power source. As the story goes, Neo swallows the red pill, battles the nefarious Matrix Agents, and fulfills his destiny as "the one," which was to destroy the Matrix and save humanity. In our present reality, Ron Paul is our Neo; he is "the one" that may be our last and best hope to revive the essence and spirit of our (former) Constitutional Republic. MORE HERE

Got A Call From The Concord Monitor

Yesterday we received a call from Margo Sangor Katz who works for the Concord Monitor. She said they are working on another article on the Browns - something about the type of people who have supported them in the past versus the people who are supporting them now. The local media pieces have seemed to take a much darker turn against the Browns lately. Elaine was commenting on this on the RBN show yesterday. We have documented on this blog the fact that, at least with the Union Leader, the positive comments we've tried to post in support of the Browns are not being published on the net.

Well....we just found the article Margo wrote posted at this link.

Three Days in NH With Ron Paul

This is a recap of Ron's trip to NH this weekend, his fourth visit.

On Saturday we started out with the Londonderry Old Home Day Parade, and an all-day booth with the local GOP where literature and signs were being distributed.

Meanwhile those of us who attended the Strafford picnic heard one of Ron's best (in my opinion) encapsulated speeches ever. After taking the straw poll there, Ron continued on to the Pro-Gun NH reception in Concord where he was honored by being given an honorary life membership.

FUND RAISER STARTED FOR ED & ELAINE!!!

CLICK HERE for more info

In our ongoing efforts to support the Browns in their stand against tyranny and in order to help the Browns defend their property, their lives, and to begin the process of restoring our Republic, we are beginning a fundraiser. With all the untapped resources of their fellow countrymen and women who want to participate in the struggle to restore our Republic, it has been decided to accept donations so we can pool our resources.

No one can afford to contribute thousands of dollars, but if thousands of people each give a few dollars – we can do it – with no one really taking a financial hit. All donations go directly to the defense of the Brown’s home and to help pay their expenses, as they continue their brave and historic stand for our country.

The only spot to donate online is MakeTheStand.com -- Ed & Elaine's official website. Other sites should link to our donations page at www.makethestand.com/Donations. Our PayPal email address is ed@makethestand.com. We will post a mailing address that you can send personal checks, money orders, and cashiers checks to very soon. For now, you can use any major credit card or debit card. If you haven't registered with your email address at MakeTheStand.com, Ed & Elaine ask that you take 30 seconds to do so. This way we can email you and keep you up-to-date on anything that's going on. CLICK HERE to join the email list.

We must stand together to have any chance of prevailing for freedom. This is just the beginning of restoring our liberties and taking our country back.

Thank you for your continued support of Ed & Elaine's stand.

Please vote for someone who does not wipe his/her ass with the Constitution. You really want to let someone like Rudillary McRomney have this kind of power? Make the right choice, or I'll see you in the soup lines.

Stephen Gordon Covers Ron Paul Alabama Straw Poll Win

The drive towards Birmingham was relatively uneventful, except that I passed a small caravan of Ron Paul supporters, presumably driving from Athens or Huntsville. It was hard to tell where they came from based on their vehicle tags, as they represented a lot of north Alabama counties. Of course, I honked and gave them a thumbs up; they honked and waved in return.

Ron Paul: 1st In the NH Straw Poll and 1st In The AL Straw Poll

"A Christian Blog" reports:

2nd tier candidate moves up to 1st tier, but is ignored


Remember that I predicted here that media minions of the one world Council on Foreign Relations would be ignoring or misrepresenting the one Candidate what was against one worldism. Well look who's winning the straw polls and are the Media broadcasting it? Only as one liners, discredited, and hidden under praise for other Candidates. Also Ron Paul is consistently drawing 2 to 3 times the crowds (the real index of support) that the "Big" candidates are drawing -- whether Republican OR Democrat.

The last three poll results:

Illinois' first-ever straw poll:

Ron Paul 3rd place
Thompson 2nd place
Romney 1st place

Also caught on video (but little reported) at the IL straw poll was Romney's Illinois chairman, state Sen. Dan Rutherford (R-Chenoa), ripping a sign out of one Paul supporter's hands And then throwing it on the ground and standing on it, as Ron Paul supporters stand around him pointing out how idiotic he's acting. I saw the video and Ron Paul fans were behaving remarkably well but the Chicago Tribune reported it making the Ron Paul fans the idiots.


Alabama Straw Poll, A Landslide:


Tom Tancredo - 0%
Sam Brownback - 0.75%
John McCain - 0.75%
Mike Huckabee - 2%
Rudy Giuliani - 3%Fred Dalton Thompson - 3%
Duncan Hunter - 4%
Mitt Romney - 5%
Ron Paul - 81%

NH GOP straw poll (Strafford County), another landslide:

Ron Paul- 73%
Romney - 9%
Huckabee - 6.9%
Tancredo - 2.7%
McCain - 2.4%
Cox - 1.7%
Hunter - 1.7%
Fred Thompson - 3
Giuliani - 1%
Brownback - 0.3%

Now remind me: who is "2nd tier"? If this were Giuliani winning it would be all over prime time. This is what happens when you are for our national and Constitutional sovereignty, truely against socialism, and against the CFR and one worldism. A lot of people are now saying that we need to pray for Ron Paul's protection. YouTube his speaches to find out why.

Ilinois Straw Poll August 16, 2007: A Revolutionary Turnout For Ron Paul!



This is an incredibly inspiring video, especially coming from the heartland of American in my homestate of Illinois, "The Land of Lincoln". I am so proud of these guys for their heart, soul, energy and enthusiasm. The Ron Paul Revolution of Freedom and Liberty is alive and well here in the 89th Longitude West which splits right through the heart of Illinois and is where Springfield is located. Springfield is exactly 89 miles from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. If you have a heart and a soul you will be deeply moved by the recording of the incident at the end of the video in which the leader of Mitt Romney Illinois campaign forcefully removes a Ron Paul sign from a Ron Paul supporter and steps on it. There a higher power that will prevail in this revolution and it's spelled with five (5) letters: T R U T H. Hat Tip to AlpineJones, the creator of this video, who wrote:

"My goal with this video is to inspire other Ron Paul supporters to go out and join the fun with the Meet Up groups. Illinois Ron Paul supporters had an amazing turn out at the straw poll. We also had a lot of fun and a great rally. Lets keep up the momentum."


Here's a link to some more great videos from the Illinois Straw Poll on August 16th.

Editor's Note: Ron Paul came in 3rd in the Illinois Straw Poll with 18.87% of the vote as follows:

To be included, participate candidates were required to have participated in one of the previously held debates with other Republican candidates, or have polled above 5 percent in a national, independent poll.

Final results of Thursday's Illinois straw poll:

1. Mitt Romney – 40.35%
2. Fred Thompson – 19.96%
3. Ron Paul – 18.87%
4. Rudy Giuliani – 11.61%
5. John McCain – 4.12%
6. Mike Huckabee – 3.04%
7. Sam Brownback – 1.08%
8. Duncan Hunter - .65%
9. Tom Tancredo - .33%

Audio Moblog with Dave Ridley From NHFree.com

Dave called in to report that he marched in a parade with Ron Paul today. He reported that there are many things going on all across the state and that Ron Paul and his campaign - which he noted "is much larger" - will be very active around New Hampshire today, tomorrow and perhaps - I think I heard him say - through Monday. Dave's frequent reports are very timely and always a good barometer of the energy behind the "freedom and liberty" movement in the "Live Freed Or Die" state. As Dave noted in his report - to paraphrase: "there so much going on right now all over the state...it's as if there's a quickening happening....!"

Tax Law is Bad Law

Szandor Blestman

June 20, 2007

Today, there is a brave couple in New Hampshire who are under siege. Their names are Ed and Elaine Brown. They have already lost their businesses to the feds for refusing to give them their protection money. They had a trail but were not allowed to present their defenses to a jury, therefore they stayed away from the courthouse and were found guilty in absentia. Now their housee is under constant surveillance by federal agents. They are trapped in their home and awaiting the next move from the feds. They are ready to die. These people have done nothing to harm another, nor did they steal the private property of another. They just wanted to keep the money they earned honestly. They just wanted to present one of a variety of defenses during their trail. They just wanted to be shown a law that said they were required to pay income taxes. They were not allowed to do any of those reasonable things. They should simply be left alone.

The Genie Of Freedom Is Out Of The Bottle!

This is an incredible article which should be shared far and wide!


Excerpted Szandor Blestman's article, "Ron Paul Detractors Need a Wake Up Call":

Szandor Blestman

August 17, 2007

"Ron Paul has rubbed the magic lamp and now the genie is out. The ideas of freedom and liberty are once again loosed upon the world and they are gaining support."

Whatever reason one may decide to berate Ron Paul or his supporters, it might be helpful to step back and consider what you’re really against. Are you honestly just mad because there are so many articles out there praising Ron’s policies and his stances on the issues? Then why are you reading them? Is there someone with a gun at your head forcing you to read them? Then don’t read them and leave the rest of us who want to read about Ron Paul alone. Are you mad because your candidate isn’t able to generate the kind of grass roots support and Internet buzz that Ron Paul is able to generate? Then write articles about how great your candidate’s big government tax and spend programs are going to be and try to create that buzz yourself.

Perhaps you’re against a certain issue that Ron Paul is for. Fine, then make that argument and make an intelligent, well thought out argument supporting your point of view, don’t simply dismiss those who support an opposing point of view by calling them names. Or, perhaps you’re against freedom and liberty. Perhaps you’re against the constitution. Maybe you’re one of those who feel the constitution is a quaint antiquity and the bill of rights just gets in the way of your security. Perhaps you simply don’t want to make your own decisions in your life and feel the government should mandate everything for you from what you learn in school to the kind of job you do to what doctor you see for your health care. Perhaps the idea of an endless war on terror appeals to you. Whatever the reason, you’re going to have to defend your position. Ron Paul has rubbed the magic lamp and now the genie is out. The ideas of freedom and liberty are once again loosed upon the world and they are gaining support. Name calling and ignoring Ron Paul and his supporters will not make them go away. People care again. If nothing else, politics in America has changed because of Ron Paul, and I think that’s a good thing. Read more here.

Editor's Note: Special thanks to all lovers of freedom and liberty in the world for rubbing this genie bottle so passionately

WTP Takes Action Against Vote Fraud

Diebold Vote Machines Fail In Iowa

Last Thursday, two days before the August 11th presidential Iowa Straw Poll, Bob Schulz and seven other Plaintiffs filed suit in federal court in Des Moines, Iowa seeking to permanently prohibit the state of Iowa from conducting any Straw Poll, Caucus, Primary, Special or General Election unless the voting and vote counting was open, verifiable, machine-free, and computer-free.

...

And for your further thought, consider this:

On Friday, April 13, 2007, Romney For President issued a press release announcing its Story County (Iowa) “Leadership Team.” The press release named Defendant Mary Moisman, the Story County Auditor, as part of its Leadership Team.

Mary Moisman and her staff were in charge of providing the Diebold voting equipment, as well as managing and auditing the operation and results of the Iowa Straw Poll, which was purportedly won by candidate Mitt Romney.

Breaking Sticks

Freedom Shenanigan #10
Breaking Sticks

There is a fairly well-known story about a father with three sons. The father is reaching a point in his life where he wants to pass on his successful business to one of his sons. In many cultures, the first-born would get the job. But the father wanted to make sure that the business that he sweated blood and tears and slaved over for years and built up into a thriving enterprise, would survive his replacement. So the father devised a simple little test for each one of his sons to take, separately, without the other two sons being present.

He wrapped a bundle of kindling with a stout string to hold the bundle together. He then presented the bound bundle to the first son and told the son to break it. No matter how hard the first son tried, he could not break the bundle. The father then gave the bundle to his second son and asked that son to do the same, break the bundle. Again, the results were the same. The second son could not break the bundle either. So finally, feeling a little disappointed with his first two sons, the father gave the bundle to the third son, and said, "break the bundle." The third son contemplated the bundle for a short while and then with great deliberation, took out a knife, cut the string and then commenced to break each kindling stick, one at a time. The third son got the job.

My father told of a similar story as young pattern-maker during World War II. Because of his skill as a pattern-maker, he was exempt from military service, but was ordered to the Bremerton Shipyards in Bremerton, Washington, to build the patterns for large valves, fittings, and propellers for war ships. He told me that when he was presented with a blueprint for his first job, it was so complex that he could not make head nor tail out of it. As he sat there with his chin resting on his two palms, he was feeling helpless and lost in an impenetrable fog. He was stumped. Just then, an old-timer walked by and saw that my father was in a serious dilemma and made a simple suggestion. He told my father to look for something in the blueprint that he recognized, and then build on that. Sure enough, a piece of the blueprint sprang out at him as something he knew, and my father went on to complete the pattern. It was a life-changing moment for him, and he passed that wisdom on to me.

So much of life presents itself as a bundle of sticks, or a complicated blueprint. If we try to take on the whole bundle of sticks, or understand the entire blueprint all at once, we find the task too daunting, get frustrated, and turn away or give up. Thus it is with our struggle to preserve, protect and defend freedom and liberty.
