Or in other words, The Loss of Liberty and its Restoration.
Written February 1, 2000 A.D., on Dylan's 7th Birthday.
The Internal Revenue form approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for income taxes imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of 1939, 1954, and 1986, as amended, Section 1, is Form Number 2555 with an approved OMB control number of 1545-0067, for reporting foreign earned income. Form 2555 is to be attached to Form 1040, which has an approved OMB control number of 1545-0074, for a person liable for a tax upon foreign earned income who had foreign earned income withheld by a withholding agent under Internal Revenue Code sections 1441, 1442, 1443, and 1461, in order to obtain a refund of the overpayment of tax of the foreign earned income, if any.
IRC Section 1441 is for: Withholding of tax on nonresident aliens.
IRC Section 1442 is for: Withholding of tax on foreign corporations.
IRC Section 1443 is for: Foreign tax exempt organizations.
IRC Section 1461 is for: Liability for withheld tax.
There is no other form approved for use under IRC section 1. Form 2555 is the only approved form for IRC section 1. Persons who file a Form 1040 who are not claiming a refund of foreign earned income are committing perjury by certifying under penalty of perjury that their 1040 form with OMB control number 1545-0074 is for a refund of overpayment of foreign earned income.
The officers of the Bureau of Internal Revenue know this, but do not disclose it unless asked the specific question. "Am I required to file an income tax form under IRC Section 1 if I have no foreign earned income?" Unless this or some similar question is asked, the Internal Revenue service personnel will not disclose that you are not a person required to file. If you do file a Form 1040 declaring under the penalty of perjury that it is true, complete and accurate, then the service "assumes" that it is true even if you had no foreign earned income to report. Filing the form under the penalty of perjury makes you liable for the tax on foreign earned income based on your own false testimony. If you are not subject to a tax on foreign earned income, you have just made a gift to the Internal Revenue service. You were not one made liable for the tax by law, but only by your own ignorance of the law, by certifying under penalty of perjury that you were liable.
This is where deceit and fraud have crept into the system as the government of the United States of America has been taken over by secret combinations which have caused the Internal Revenue Code to be so written that only a few people could discover the deceit of the masters of deceit. The progressive income tax concept is from the Communist Manifesto. But Congress does not have jurisdiction within the several states making up the United States of America, except where they have purchased with the consent of the legislature of a state property for certain purposes enumerated in the Constitution. You cannot commit a federal crime unless you are on federal property, because your conduct is not within their jurisdiction.
The 16th Amendment did not extend the jurisdiction of the United States to impose taxes on the Citizens of the United States living outside the jurisdiction of the United States of America. Citizens of the United States of America, meaning the fifty states, are not generally within the jurisdiction of the government of the United States, but are within the jurisdiction of the respective states in which they reside. There is a separation of powers between the government of the United States and the government of each state in the United States of America. Sometimes Congress attempts to blur the line between the different jurisdictions. But remember, in respect to the income tax laws, there is not a tax imposed upon the Citizens of the United States of America by the Congress of the United States, unless they engage in certain activities that fall within the jurisdiction of the United States by license, employment or some other circumstance. There is not even a definition of income other than that of foreign earned income with respect to the income tax imposed on taxable income in IRC section 1.
You have every right to call upon the governor of the State in which you reside to protect you against federal agents attempting to convince you that you are liable for a foreign earned income tax on your domestic earnings, wages, salaries, and commissions, interest, dividends, etc. They are not subject to any tax imposed by the federal government, and therefore, they are not subject to any tax that is calculated as a percentage of a federal tax, because that also pertains only to foreign earned income of certain persons made liable for certain foreign earned income. Some foreign earned income is exempt from taxation.
The use of the Form 1040, or the various alternatives, is part of an enormous scheme to defraud the people of the United States residing in the fifty states where the federal government has no Constitutional jurisdiction. Congress has all legislative power. The president has all executive power. The courts have all judicial power, with the exception of impeachment of the president, and his trial by the senate, but even then, the chief justice of the supreme court presides at the trial. There is a separation of powers among the three branches of government.
Congress has no judicial power, with the exception of impeachment powers, but by the Constitution, impeachment powers belong to Congress and not to the courts, so they are not a judicial power, with the exception of the impeachment of the president, where the Constitution specifically provides for the chief justice to preside at the trial of the president.
The compensation of the president who is vested with the executive power of the United States cannot be increased or diminished by Congress, the president, or the courts, during the term for which he shall have been elected. His compensation must be constant, unvariable, according to a fixed standard of value, which cannot be altered, up or down.
The justices and judges in the courts who are vested with the judicial power of the United States cannot have their compensation diminished by Congress, the president, or the courts, during their good behavior continuance in office. Their compensation cannot be lowered.
The members of Congress cannot have their compensation vary without an intervening election. No increase or decrease without an intervening election.
Compensation, debts, taxes and public accounts are measured in dollars or units. Dollars, therefore cannot vary--be increased nor decreased, as to their value by congress, the president, or the courts. To do so would vary the compensation of members of congress, vary the compensation of the president, and vary the compensation of the justices and judges, thereby divesting them of their respective legislative, executive and judicial powers.
That is what has happened in the United States of America, the compensation has been diminished for all members of Congress, the president, and the judges in the courts. Therefore, they have no legislative, executive or judicial authority under the Constitution of the United States. All federal public offices are vacant for want of unvariable compensation.
In addition to those facts, the unvarying value of the dollar or unit of silver containing 371.25 grains of fine silver, can never be increased or diminished without an amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Using any other value in a public account falsifies that account. Falsification of a public account is a felony in Utah and in the United States of America.
Bills of Credit are not units of silver. Bills of Credit are not a standard of value, nor are they a measure of value. Bills of Credit are not permitted by the Constitution of the United States. Issuance of Bills of Credit is unconstitutional, and therefore Bills of Credit when issued are void. They never can have a value under the Constitution of the United States. Those who issue and use them act without constitutional authority and are personally liable for payment in gold and silver coin of the United States or in foreign coin regulated to the value of the dollar or unit of silver.
The people of the United States empowered congress "To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and Current coin of the United States." Congress, the president, and the courts have upheld the counterfeiting of the securities and current coin of the United States, thereby varying the compensation of the members of congress, the president and the judges of the courts, and the falsification of all public accounts both of the United States and of the fifty states and of all the territories and possessions of the United States. The members elected to Congress have approved of making false notes and other false obligations and other securities of the United States, and false coins, thereby violating the criminal statutes enacted by Congress, making every member of Congress a person engaged in racketeering activities, dealing in false securities and false coins of the United States and prohibiting the use of foreign gold and silver coins as a tender in payment of debts.
Members of Congress also have instructed the Secretary of the Treasury not to redeem the false notes in gold or silver Coin. Therefore, all members of Congress have given aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States which is recorded in the public records of Congress and the Department of the Treasury. The newest evidence of this treason is proved by the new false dollar coins approved by members of Congress, minted by the Department of the Treasury, and issued to the co-conspirators in the Federal Reserve Banks just this last week of January 2000 A.D The purpose of the false (counterfeit) coins, appearing to be golden in color, is to reduce the amount of paper used to make the false notes of the Federal Reserve System banks.
These notes and coins are issued as "obligations or other securities" of the United States with the intent to defraud the United States and the people of the United States, and of foreign countries, so they cannot obtain current gold and silver coin from the treasury of the United States or any Federal Reserve Bank or from any other government or central bank. Thus our corrupted government leaders having falsified (counterfeited) nearly all of the securities and current coin of the United States, all of the people of the United States who use such false notes and false coins and fictitious fractional reserve bank credit accounts (which are derived from depositing the false notes and false coins in savings and checking accounts in member banks of the Federal Reserve System) have been brought within the organized criminal activities of the members of Congress, the president, the courts, and the Federal Reserve Banking System pursuant to the Communist Manifesto and in direct violation of the Constitution and laws of the United States of America. Communism is a greater threat to freedom today than it has ever been in the past. It has more influence. It is supported by people in every nation known on the earth. It has dominion over all the nations of the world. It is corrupt government. It is the church of the devil, which is financed by false securities and false coins and false or fictitious bank credit in support of the goals of the great and abominable church of the devil. It finances virtually all public and private education, secular and religious, and all religious and business organizations in the United States, and in all the world, so that almost all people fall under its domination and influence throughout the United States and the rest of the world. Even the members of the Church of the Lamb are under the influence of the church of the devil, but they cannot retain dual membership. They must choose one or the other.
Thus the members of Congress, the president, and the judges in the courts of the United States have communized (socialized) the United States of America by 1) fraud, 2) deceit, 3) lying words, 4) oath breaking, 5) covenant breaking, 6) giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States--The communists, socialists, humanists, fascists, and others who seek the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States of America, including the American Civil Liberties Union (also known as the Atheist-Communist-Luciferin Union), which aid and comfort, are, by definition, treason.
The Constitution of the United States of America is the solution to the problem which has been created by its subversion. It holds the means by which it may be restored. We have a right to make our elected officials abide by the words and precepts of the Constitution and the laws made in pursuance thereof, and of treaties made under the authority of the United States. If we have the Spirit of God with us, we can find our way back to freedom. The Spirit of God is the Spirit of freedom. We can throw off these false taxes, and the false notes and false coins by which these false taxes are measured, but only if we 1) are disciples of Jesus Christ-The God of this land, and 2) keep his commandments, 3) know the truth and 4) the truth shall make us free.
"Then said Jesus unto the Jews who believed on him, If ye continue in my word (keep my commandments), then are ye my disciples in deed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31-32..
From this we learn: Only the disciples of Jesus Christ who continue in his word shall know the truth and be made free. We must abide in the truth or we cannot be made free, even by the power of God. For if we do not abide in the truth we necessarily are abiding in an untruth which necessarily places us in bondage to the father of lies. We either abide in the truth in Jesus Christ, or we abide in the lies of Lucifer. One is good, the other is evil. We therefore, abide in the light of Christ or in the darkness of Satan. Our power exists in the choices we make, to obey Jesus Christ or his greatest adversary--Lucifer-Satan-the Devil. If we do not understand this, then we do not understand the truth. Following Jesus Christ leads to Eternal Life. Following Lucifer leads to Eternal Punishment.
The Constitution of the United States was established by Jesus Christ "by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose." D & C 101:80. The Constitution of the United States of America recognizes Jesus Christ as the God of this land.
The Ratification of the Conventions of nine states, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.
done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In Witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names.
The preamble states six purposes for which the Constitution was ordained and established.
We the People of the United States, in Order to
form a more perfect Union,
insure the domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defence,
promote the general Welfare, and
secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Preamble of the Constitution.
The Constitution of the United States recognizes Sunday as the Lord's Day on which no bill need be signed into law or vetoed, thereby remembering the Sabbath of Jesus Christ (the Lord of Sabaoth, meaning the Lord of the first day) to keep it holy, signifying the day of his resurrection and establishing the Sabbath of the New Testament which began after he sealed the Old Testament with his own blood.
If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law. Article II, Section 7.
Jesus Christ further declared:
Let no man break the laws of the land, for he that keepeth the laws of God hath no need to break the laws of the land. D & C 58:21
Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another. And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up for this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood. Now, unto what shall I liken the children of Zion? I will liken them unto the unjust judge, for men ought always to pray and not to faint, which saith--There was in a city a judge which feared not God, neither regarded man. And there was a widow in that city, and she came unto him, saying: Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while, but afterward he said within himself: Though I fear not God, nor regard man, yet because this widow troubleth me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. Thus will I liken the children of Zion. Let them importune at the feet of the judge; And if he heed them not, let them importune at the feet of the governor; And if he heed them not, let them importune at the feet of the president; And if the president heed them not, then will the Lord arise and come forth out of his hiding place, and in his fury vex the nation; And in his hot displeasure, and in his fierce anger, in his time, will cut off those wicked, unfaithful, and unjust stewards, and appoint them their portion among hypocrites, and unbelievers; Even in outer darkness, where there is weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth. Pray ye, therefore, that their ears may be opened unto your cries that I may be merciful unto them that these things may not come upon them. What I have said unto you must needs be, that all men may be left without excuse; That wise men and rulers may hear and know that which they have never considered; That I may proceed to bring to pass my act, my strange act, and perform my work, my strange work that men may discern between the righteous and the wicked, saith your God. D & C 101: 79-95.
