"...Each one of the fifty (50) States joined together to form a Federation of States called The United States of America. The Federation is how we get our 'American' status.
Early on, 1776, the States agreed to place certain 'mutual powers' in the care of the Federation of States, so that they could provide their people with such conveniences as a common defense, a common currency, interstate roads, access to seaports, and free access to each other's commodity markets."
Therefore this Blog-writer's status as an American (free-inhabitant) is based on the original "federation" that predates the "Constitution" and all of its "amendments" - and most especially the 14th!

May 23, 2020 - Limited Government The Solution Part 1 -
“… The founding documents of the United States of America called the Organic Laws were written to limit government. But no one has fully understood them until now!
The chief purpose of the four Organic Laws is to regulate and control government, not you. …
These laws … are the founding documents of this country, which means no statute or code should conflict with principles set forth in these documents.
Merriam-Webster defines ‘organic’ as; ‘of, relating to, or constituting the law by which a government or organization exists.’
In the front of the United States Code, Volume One, you will see the title, Organic Laws of the United States of America.
The four Organic Laws listed in the order of their occurrence, are The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and the 1787 Constitution for the United States of America.
So, for example, The Declaration of Independence says there shall be no taxation without consent. Therefore, the Internal Revenue Code has no choice but to adhere to this principle in the codification of their laws. And guess what, they do!
Here’s another example for you. Most people know that according to the Articles of Confederation that the states are sovereign. Yet the federal government seems to be able to play big foot within the states. How is this possible?
Hidden in plain sight, in each State’s Statutes lies the answer awaiting your discovery.
The Declaration of Independence states ‘That to secure Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.’
Clearly, the Organic Laws have established the principle that government needs your consent to govern you. This being true you should be able to find in the Statutes and Codes how to give your consent. Plus, the Organic Laws or the Statutes and Codes should contain a option for those who chose to govern themselves.
it is your responsibility to know the law.
(However) The United States relies on your ignorance of the fact that all written law is limited to a specific subject. For governments the subject is territory. So for example, the United States Congress cannot write laws for Japan. And in a free society Congress cannot write laws for you without your consent, unless they own the property you are located on.
Finally, someone has solved the puzzle that has besieged free men and women, since September 17, 1787.
Dr. Eduardo Rivera Professor of Law and Government, has deciphered the documents and removed the confusion that has enabled the United States government to interfere with your “unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness in America”.
Dr. Rivera’ was guided by two principles while conducting his research.
1) You cannot legislate freedom.
2) Every structure must be built upon truth in order to withstand the test of time.
Knowing the truth had to be buried somewhere, he set out to discover how and why for example, the principle of no taxation without consent has become ‘pay income taxes or go to jail’!
After serving in the Army in 1968, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government: Public Service in 1968 from the California State University at Los Angeles. He then acquired his doctorate in law from UCLA Law School.
His 34 year career as a State of California Bar attorney was cut short when he was disbarred for helping his clients shed their unlawful government burdens.
‘Once exposed, a secret loses all its power.’ – Ann Aquirre author of Grimspace
You are wasting your time shuffling the cards, used by the government to trick you. Pull back the curtain. Strip off all the statutes and codes laden with self-interest, misplaced patriotism and thievery by going back to the source of written law in America. The foundation of all written law in the United States of America is the four Organic Laws listed earlier.
You just need to read and understand 17 pages in the front of the United States Code book. Seventeen pages that’s all.
Those seventeen pages are dense and written in a way that our public school fool system did not teach us to understand. But with the right teacher, like Dr. Rivera who repeats the same simple facts consistently, you will be amazed at the simplicity of the law.
If you can read, you can understand the foundational documents of written law.
For over five years Dr. Rivera has been teaching privately and publicly on the Internet about the Organic Laws of the United States of America.
He offers the only law course, home study or otherwise, which includes a comprehensive study of the Organic Laws of the United States of America.

"... The moment that a State, a County, or a Municipality incorporates, it ceases to be part of our actual government of the people, by the people, and for the people. It becomes part of a foreign government operated by persons, for persons.
This is clearly demonstrated by The Clearfield Doctrine, Federal Title 22, and even the IRS. You can go to the Vendor Offices of any State of State or County of __________ corporation and talk to their Contracting Officer, and ask politely for their EIN (Employer Identification Number) and a copy of their Tax Determination Letter from the IRS. The Tax Determination Letter will show that they are a non-profit organization, but not a subdivision of government.
We published the EINs for all the States in the Appendix of our book, 'You Know Something is Wrong When....An American Affidavit of Probable Cause.' You can request a copy of their Tax Determination Letter directly from the IRS, too, using a Form 4506-A."

"Government doesn’t know the limitations of its written law, because it doesn’t know the Organic Law of The United States of America."
August 16, 2016 -
If you can lay your hands on volume one of "United States Code" you should find a page after the "Table of Titles and Chapters" that says: "The Organic Laws of The United States of America". In my 2006 edition that page is XLIII. The four Organic Laws follow in this order:
"The Declaration of Independence-1776",
the "Articles of Confederation-1777",
the "Ordinance of 1787: The Northwest Territorial Government",
the "Constitution of The United States" of America-1787"
(Also published online.)
The publishing of all four Organic Laws at the beginning of the "United States Code" is the perfect place indicating that the foundation for all federal "law" comes from the entire set of these four Organic Laws. Lawful federal "law" can not come about any other way.
I'm inspired to start this post after responding to a request from a colleague who wants to understand the Organic Laws "and how they pertain". These last three words are what motivates me to sharing this information and especially my understanding. My email response was sent at "20:20"!
"20/20" is considered perfect vision. There are many situations in life were perfect vision is required. Entrance into the United Staes Air Force used to require perfect vision. It is my belief that every American individual who lives in any of the several states in The United States of America deserves to have "perfect vision" in regards to their Rights as a "free inhabitant". I count is as most unfortunate that a number of conditioning factors (including government schools) have made it virtually impossible for the American people to have the particular "perfect vision" that I am referring here. I wish to support American individuals in rebuilding their vision of America.
I sent my first lesson: "Organic Laws: Lesson One" to an activist within the "right to choose" movement concerning the apparent mandatory vaccination (or should that read vacci-nation?) that seems to have gone "viral" (at least cross-country) and well beyond any kind of "pandemic" proportions! (I imagine that the vaccine manufacturers got inspired by the multiplication capacity of certain viruses and applied that to their marketing strategy.)

Comment submitted on August 4, 2019:
"The Organic Laws are the basis of government and law in America for a number of reasons one of which is the fact that all law in government must be in written form. If the Organic Laws aren't taught at Law Schools (not to mention public High Schools - although I'd like that to be disproven) then is it not logical for each individual American to make learning this "basis of government and law in America" a priority? ........."

January 12, 2019 - Where Does Your "Democracy" Come From? -
"Swindle School 101" By Anna Von Reitz -
When I was young we had a rash of land ownership scams based on abuse of Quit Claim Deeds. The fraud artist would offer to sell you this beautiful piece of land and deed it over to you via a Quit Claim Deed.
The problem was that the purported Seller never had any valid ownership in that land to begin with, so his Quit Claim was meaningless.
For only $50,000 I will gladly give you a Quit Claim to all the land I own in Florida.
The Municipal United States Congress has been doing the same thing.
They don't actually represent you, but they let people assume that they do, and then they act as if they had the authority to do all the things they have done--- when in point of fact, they don't.
They have no valid interest--- no land in Florida. So all their works and ways are invalid from the start and as if they never existed since 1860 with respect to us. The technical legal term is: void for fraud.
We have our republics, if we occupy them. We can, if we get moving and organized, "reconstruct" our Federal States of States and impose sanity on this asylum.
The complete fraudulent nature of this entire situation is made clear from the fact that the perpetrators endlessly describe their aberrant, renegade government of, by, and for corporations as a "democracy" -- and they have never yet had a mandate of 51% of anyone voting for anything.
They proclaim that they are a democracy, albeit one without any mandate to exist.
That's like claiming to be a milk cow without an udder, or a cat without claws, a bird without feathers, or a snake without scales. You might as well claim that your wife is a hat, as to claim to be a democracy without a mandate.
You need look no farther for any explanation or fact. The entire house of cards falls apart on the first defect, and there you have two (2) defects that are completely unanswerable: (1) their United States Congress does not represent our United States; (2) their democracy can't exist without a mandate, and so far as we can determine, they have never had a mandate to do anything at all.
Bottom line, the whole circumstance is nothing but a criminal Breach of Trust and Swindle owed immediate correction and cessation.
Comment: There are many organizations in America that are doing their best to manifest their high ideals. Although there are a number of these high ideals that I share affinity with I don't offer my fullest support when I see the organization's "compass" is also pointed to false ideals. One "false ideal" referred to as: "democracy" is no where to be found within the Organic Laws and therefore IMO it does not deserve to exist anywhere within "The United States of America" (unincorporated). I have asked on a couple occasions for the basis in Law for a certain individual's reference to democracy as an American ideal however the individual has not responded. They can't because it does not exist! The American ideal is the Individual "man" (can be male or female) who exercises their Unalienable God-given Rights to create/co-create his life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. There is nothing democratic in this "ideal". This Ideal is the foundation of the first Organic Law that continues as the foundation for the second Organic Law that stand together like two pillars.
February 15, 2019 - What The Organic Laws Say -
The “United States of America” is the Confederacy established by the Article of Confederation November 15, 1777.
The “United States”, a trade organization can not bring suit or be suited because it lacks sovereignty.
The Constitution of September 17, 1787 mentions two forms of Congress “a Congress” and “the Congress”.
Article 1 Section 1:
“All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
The first “a Congress” was established as the law making part of the President of the United State’s administration of the United States, the territory owned by and ceded to the United States of America.
“The Congress” was established when the last of the first thirteen States ratified the Article of Confederation on March 1, 1781.
“The Congress” was the Confederation acting as the United States, in Congress assembled.
The same States that established the Confederacy 1781 also established the NorthWest Ordinance of July 13, 1787.
People of those United States would convene to ratify the Constitution of September 17, 1787.
October 29, 2018 - “Vaccine Choice or Vaccine Mandate?” - Comment posted at Dr. B's -
re: the topic: “Vaccine Choice or Vaccine Mandate?” – The truth of this issue all depends on the individual and how they identify themselves.
If an individual knows who they are as an American-born “free-inhabitant” (see the second Organic Law) who is not government property then they have their innate freedom of choice and can Lawfully stand firm with their choices. However – if the individual only believes what the government tells them – that they are a “citizen” of the federal government (under the “14th Amendment” ) then I am very sorry but you just volunteered to be a “person” who is wholly subject to whatever “mandates” come rolling down Capital hill!
Nevertheless you truly have the choice as to how you identify yourself, if only you can hear it, see it! Once you make a conscious choice about your status then you’ll either have more choices in regards to external governmental “mandates” or virtually none.
Nest Day - the 17th -
Also started teaching about "income" based on the true limitations of the Organic Laws (that is the focus of the advanced course under Professor Rivera). Just sent off a follow-up correspondence as follows:
Just found this (attached PDF) brochure via a link at my blog:
Scroll down to the second section starting at:
"September 9, 2012 - One of the most misunderstood things about government is the true power of taxation that was delegated to it in the Constitution."
and that I reverified the link there at:
The brochure is actually two pages that are layed out horizontally with a fold so that these can be printed double-sided on a single sheet of paper and folded in half. This is the "nutshell"!
Hope you can "look it up" before the end of the year.
Following is an expanded version of the "nutshell" (after seeing it's duplication here:
Plain Facts About The Income Tax That The Government, Your Tax Attorney, Your Favorite Pundit And Many Others Don't Want You To Know
Please read the following material carefully, including the notes at the end, and then share it widely. Links to documentation of every assertion and quote can be found in the more complete presentation at http://losthorizons.com/Documents/The16th.htm. All emphases are added.
HERE ARE SOME PLAIN FACTS about the nature of the income tax. Anything you've ever heard or had suggested to you about the tax which does not conform to each and every one of these facts is simply not true, no matter how or by whom it was said or suggested to you.
What you're going to see proven in the compilation below is that:
1. The income tax is an excise;
2. Excise taxes are taxes on privilege;
3. The preceding facts about the income tax cannot change, because a tax on UN-privileged activities (or the gains therefrom) is a capitation or other direct tax, and the Constitution prohibits capitations and other direct taxes (other than by apportionment); and
4. The prohibition on unapportioned capitations and other direct taxes has never changed, even by action of the Sixteenth Amendment.
Then we'll follow with some discussion of what these facts mean and why this is all very important to you and your kids. Here we go:
1. The tax is an excise:
"[The] tax upon gains, profits, and income [is] an excise or duty, and not a direct tax, within the meaning of the constitution, and  its imposition [is] not, therefore, unconstitutional."
United States Supreme Court, Springer v. U. S., 102 U.S. 586 (1880) (as summarized in Pollock v. Farmer's Loan & Trust, 158 U.S. 601, (1895))
"[T]axation on income [is] in its nature an excise..."
A unanimous United States Supreme Court in Brushaber v. Union Pacific R. Co., 240 U.S. 1 (1916)
"I hereby certify that the following is a true and faithful statement of the gains, profits, or income of _____ _____, of the _____ of _____, in the county of _____, and State of _____, whether derived from any kind of property, rents, interest, dividends, salary, or from any profession, trade, employment, or vocation, or from any other source whatever, from the 1st day of January to the 31st day of December, 1862, both days inclusive, and subject to an income tax under the excise laws of the United States."
The “affirmation” on the first income tax return form.
“The whole body of internal revenue law in effect on January 2, 1939... ...has its ultimate origin in 164 separate enactments of Congress. The earliest of these was approved July 1, 1862; the latest, June 16, 1938."
Preamble to the 1939 Internal Revenue Code
"The income tax... ...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.”
Former Treasury Department legislative draftsman F. Morse Hubbard in testimony before Congress in 1943
2. Excise taxes are taxes on privilege:
"...the requirement to pay [excise] taxes involves the exercise of privilege."
United States Supreme Court, Flint v. Stone Tracy Co.,, 220 U.S. 107 (1911)
“The terms ‘excise’ tax and 'privilege’ tax are synonymous and the two are often used interchangeably.”
American Airways, Inc. v. Wallace, 57 F.2d 877, 880 (M.D. Tenn. 1937)
"PRIVILEGE: A particular benefit or advantage enjoyed by a person, company, or class beyond the common advantages of other citizens. An exceptional or extraordinary power of exemption. A particular right, advantage, exemption, power, franchise, or immunity held by a person or class, not generally possessed by others.”
Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition
“The 'Government' is an abstraction, and its possession of property largely constructive. Actual possession and custody of Government property nearly always are in someone who is not himself the Government but acts in its behalf and for its purposes. He may be an officer, an agent, or a contractor. His personal advantages from the relationship by way of salary, profit, or beneficial personal use of the property may be taxed...”
United States Supreme Court, United States v. County of Allegheny, 322 US 174 (1944)
3. These facts about the tax cannot change, because a tax on UN-privileged activities (or the gains therefrom) is a capitation or other direct tax, and the Constitution prohibits capitations and other direct taxes (other than by apportionment):
"[A tax laid] according to what is supposed to be [an unprivileged payer's] fortune, by an assessment which varies from year to year [is a capitation]."
Adam Smith, ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations’, Book V, Ch. II, Art. IV (1776)
"Art. I. Sect. 9. "no capitation tax shall be laid, unless &c"
Mr Read moved to insert after "capitation" the words. "or other direct tax" He was afraid that some liberty might otherwise be taken to saddle the States with a readjustment by this rule, of past Requisitions of Congs - and that his amendment by giving another cast to the meaning would take away the pretext. Mr Williamson 2ded. the motion, which was agreed to, On motion of Col: Mason "or enumeration" inserted after, as explanatory of "Census" (Con. & S. C. only. no.)"
James Madison, Notes of the Constitutional Convention
"No capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken."
United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 9
"CAPITATION, A poll tax; an imposition which is yearly laid on each person according to his estate and ability."
Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 6th Ed. (1856). (The official law dictionary of Congress when the income tax was enacted.)
"'[B]y direct taxes in the constitution, those are meant which are raised on the capital or revenue of the people;...' [T]he framers of the [Constitution] had [Adam Smith's definition of 'capitation'] in view at the time, and ... by direct taxes, meant those paid directly from the falling immediately on the revenue;...'"
United States Supreme Court, Pollock v. Farmer's Loan & Trust, 157 U.S. 429 (1895)
"Direct taxes bear immediately upon persons, upon the possession and enjoyments of rights;”
United States Supreme Court, Knowlton v. Moore, 178 U.S. 41 (1900)
"The right to follow any of the common occupations of life is an inalienable right… It has been well said that ‘the property which every man has in his own labor, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable. The patrimony of the poor man lies in the strength and dexterity of his own hands, and to hinder his employing this strength and dexterity in what manner he thinks proper, without injury to his neighbor, is a plain violation of this most sacred property’. Smith, Wealth of Nations, Bk. I, c. 10.”
United States Supreme Court, Butcher’s Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746 (1883)
"Included in the right of personal liberty and the right of private property- partaking of the nature of each- is the right to make contracts for the acquisition of property. Chief among such contracts is that of personal employment, by which labor and other services are exchanged for money or other forms of property”
United States Supreme Court, Coppage v. Kansas, 236 U.S. 1 (1915)
"Since the right to receive income or earnings is a right belonging to every person, this right cannot be taxed as privilege.”
Jack Cole Company v. Alfred T. MacFarland, Commissioner, 337 S.W.2d 453 (1960)
4. The prohibition on unapportioned capitations and other direct taxes has never changed, even by action of the Sixteenth Amendment:
"[The Sixteenth] 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 any activity or owning any property which produces income."
Former Treasury Department legislative draftsman F. Morse Hubbard in testimony before Congress in 1943
"The Amendment, the [Supreme] court said, judged by the purpose for which it was passed, does not treat income taxes as direct taxes but simply removed the ground which led to their being considered as such in the Pollock case, namely, the source of the income. Therefore, they are again to be classified in the class of indirect taxes to which they by nature belong."
Cornell Law Quarterly, 1 Cornell L. Q. 298 (1915-16)
(The Pollock court had reasoned that even though otherwise proper subjects of an excise tax, a tax on privilege-based dividends and rent was functionally a tax on the personal property from which the gains were derived-- the stock and real estate-- and therefore was really a direct tax. The Sixteenth Amendment says that the "source" can no longer be considered in this way. If something is "income" in the sense meant in the income tax-- that is, a gain from a privilege-based, and thus excisable activity-- it can be taxed as such without regard to the source from which it is derived.)
"In Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railroad Co., Mr. C. J. White, upholding the income tax imposed by the Tariff Act of 1913, construed the Amendment as a declaration that an income tax is "indirect," rather than as making an exception to the rule that direct taxes must be apportioned."
Harvard Law Review, 29 Harv. L. Rev. 536 (1915-16)
"The Supreme Court, in a decision written by Chief Justice White, first noted that the Sixteenth Amendment did not authorize any new type of tax, nor did it repeal or revoke the tax clauses of Article I of the Constitution, quoted above. Direct taxes were, notwithstanding the advent of the Sixteenth Amendment, still subject to the rule of apportionment…"
Legislative Attorney of the American Law Division of the Library of Congress Howard M. Zaritsky in his 1979 Report No. 80-19A, entitled 'Some Constitutional Questions Regarding the Federal Income Tax Laws'
"The Sixteenth Amendment, although referred to in argument, has no real bearing and may be put out of view. As pointed out in recent decisions, it does not extend the taxing power to new or excepted subjects..."
U.S. Supreme Court, Peck v. Lowe, 247 U.S. 165 (1918)
"[T]he settled doctrine is that the Sixteenth Amendment confers no power upon Congress to define and tax as income without apportionment something which theretofore could not have been properly regarded as [unapportioned-excise taxable] income."
U.S. Supreme Court, Taft v. Bowers, 278 US 470, 481 (1929)
"[T]he sole purpose of the Sixteenth Amendment was to remove the apportionment requirement for whichever incomes were otherwise taxable. 45 Cong. Rec. 2245-2246 (1910); id. at 2539; see also Brushaber v. Union Pacific R. Co., 240 U. S. 1240 U. S. 17-18 (1916)"
U.S. Supreme Court, So. Carolina v. Baker, , 485 U.S. 505 (1988)
5. So, it really doesn't matter at all what the tax is called (whether "excise" or not). Nor does it matter what the State wants you to believe about it. The tax CAN only be Constitutionally-applied as an excise-- meaning to privileged activities, measured by the gains they produce. Were it to be applied to UN-privileged activities it would be a capitation or other direct tax and require apportionment.
In happy fact, the tax IS confined to privileged activities, as written-- scrupulously so. It's just that it is written by geniuses of legal deception, and defended by scoundrels who take full advantage of its deceptive design.
YOU'VE BEEN FOOLED, PEOPLE (and man, has it cost you in wealth and liberty and security)!
The income tax is what it always has been, both before and after the Sixteenth Amendment: a tax on federally-granted privilege. It is not a tax on money, or making or receiving money, or anything but profitably exercising a federally-granted privilege.
That the tax has been effectively applied to non-privileged things (like your earnings) is a consequence of a clever statutory design by which common, actually-untaxable gains can be made to appear to be of the privileged, taxable variety (and the willingness of an always-revenue-hungry state to exploit your ignorance of that design and how it works).
You have even been made to legally (if unknowingly and unintentionally) agree that your actually unprivileged, untaxable gains are of the taxable sort.
Do you remember in 'The Incredibles' how the insurance company where Mr. Incredible was working had things carefully set up so everyone who dealt with the company was thoroughly exploited by its convoluted procedures and fine print? That's how the tax laws are set up.
But when you learn what the exploiters hope you won't, everything changes.
Tens of thousands of your neighbors have learned. They've been getting all their money back for many years now.
The government hates this and strives mightily with all manner of corrupt practices from the bowels of its deep and dark armory to keep you from learning the liberating truth and cutting through the bs, too. Part of this effort has involved a lot of shooting, smearing, demonizing, and marginalizing the messenger and message, including by way of a handful of judicial proceedings deploying evasions calculated to give the appearance of opposition while actually constituting admissions, such as those discussed here and here.
There are others who would rather you didn't know the truth, also. Pundits who make a living complaining about the size of the government; tax attorneys; CPAs; "tax reform" advocates; and even many folks who present themselves as "tax honesty crusaders" don't want you to know. Knowing the truth about the tax, you will no longer buy what they're selling, just as you will no longer lose up to half your hard-earned wealth to a dangerously over-fed State.
Go to http://losthorizons.com/Documents/The16th.htm now and get the whole story. Or turn out your pockets and go back into your coma... copper-top. You and your kids will end up eaten alive by Leviathan (or, more accurately, spoon-fed in ever-more pathetic and contemptible bits and pieces to its clients), and you'll have no one to blame but yourself.
NOTES: Any construction of any aspect of the tax which would produce a result inconsistent with the above facts is a manifest misconstruction. For instance, any construction of the nature of what is taxed, or the meaning or effect of "includes", or of "privileged", which brings all economic activity or its products into the class of taxable events or taxed objects is self-evidently incorrect.
This is so, however cleverly the misconstruction may be defended. Any construction with the effect of imposing or justifying an unapportioned capitation or other direct tax is manifestly unconstitutional, even if teasing or arguing out just where the mistakes are being made gives you a headache or is beyond your abilities altogether. You don't need to be able to argue, understand or defend the relevant physics or the geometry to be able to confidently say that the Earth is not flat.
The same principle discussed above applies to "tax honesty" arguments that the tax only falls on corporations, or foreigners, or citizens, or residents, or the use or receipt of Federal Reserve notes, or is interlinked with the UCC, or (to put it succinctly) any construction or argument that the tax is anything other than what it is revealed to be in 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America'. Such notions are just as incompatible with one or more of the facts shown above as is the myth that the tax falls on all economic activity, and thus just as self-evidently incorrect.
Some unscrupulous beneficiaries/defenders of the misapplication of the tax have argued that certain of the Supreme Court rulings cited and excerpted above, such as Butcher's Union v. Crescent City are not actually tax-specific cases. This is pure evasion masquerading as criticism.
Butcher's Union is not cited as evidence that the Supreme Court has specifically said that common occupations are not taxable other than by apportionment. The case doesn't say this, directly.
Indeed, it is often difficult or impossible to find court rulings which declare the obvious or uncontroversial directly. This is no surprise; after all, what would be the occasion for such a declaration? Has any court ever found itself needing to hold that the Sun rises in the East (so to speak)?
But Butcher's Union DOES acknowledge that common occupations are a matter of right. That fact (which we don't really need any court to tell us, but why not use it when it is there?) conjoins with Knowlton v. Moore's observation that a tax on the enjoyment of a right is a direct tax, thus requiring apportionment as specified in Article 1, Sec. 9, and with all the Supreme Court rulings declaring that apportionment requirement to continue, even after the Sixteenth Amendment. Taken all together, these are a body of judicial acknowledgement that under the US Constitution a federal tax on common economic activities engaged in by right (or the product thereof) can only be laid per the apportionment rule.
P. S. Do you think taking care of the misapplication of the tax doesn't matter? Why It Matters.
P. P. S. By the way, the systematic exploitation of the income tax's confusing design to apply it to unprivileged activities only began in the 1940s. Do you want to see what happened when it did? Click here.

This "Teaching" needs to extend to the presidential candidates.
Also - Continuing with the vigilance (in the following comment) regarding our original "Organic" status: "free inhabitant" regarding the single term "habitants" as it was used in : "The Second Summit — British Government Gratitude Explained" by Judge Anna von Reitz and that was posted on August 22, 2016 by David Robinson
My comment posted on August 23, 2016:
Thanks for the link!
This is a most excellent presentation - except for one thing:
"... - there were two populations left on this continent at the end of the Revolutionary War: 'free, sovereign, and independent people' and 'inhabitants' --- British subjects left here to provide governmental services."
I'd like to feel free to quote the entire presentation however I'm concerned that the use of the term "inhabitants" at least partly clouds a most essential understanding of the phrase: "free inhabitants" as per Articles of Confederation at Article IV. I invite any light that could possibly shed no this.

The teaching also needs to extend to the candidates for the office of Representative to the United States House of Representatives.
August 31, 2016 - The Problem With Government Schools -
I've made a number of comments over the years about the problem with government schools and especially in regards to fully disclosing the foundation of the people's sovereignty, both collectively and as individuals, over all government. The following article explains this problem as it is now codified in the United States legal system.
How Did We Get A Federal School Curriculum?
By Phyllis Schlafly
Behind frequent protestations by public officials about local control of the schools, a federal curriculum has been quietly imposed by law. All the pieces are now in place for this major goal of the Clinton administration.
Elementary and secondary school education used to be organized around subjects such as reading, math, history, geography, language and science. While smatterings of those subjects are still taught, the focus has been shifted from academic subject matter to teaching attitudes, beliefs, values, themes, behaviors and job skills.
This is indoctrination, not education. Left-wing professors write the textbooks and the teachers unions control the public schools, so the ideology is what those groups deem politically correct.
And it's all hiding behind that good conservative word "standards." Who could possibly be against standards?
Two of the three 1994 Bill Clinton laws, Goals 2000, which defines the goals, and School-to-Work, which prescribes the shift from academics to job skills, were touted as "voluntary." The third 1994 law, the appropriations reauthorization (known to many as H.R. 6), tied the knot, warning that schools would not get any federal money unless they conform to the other two laws.
In a remarkable inclusion of special-interest legislation, the third law named and funded a private organization, the Center for Civic Education (CCE), to develop the national standards for teaching civics and government. This cozy relationship was reconfirmed in the 2002 education law called Leave No Child Behind and means that CCE is empowered, with the force of federal law and a stream of taxpayers' money, to decide what is taught in our nation's schools about civics and government.
CCE produced a 180-page volume called "National Standards for Civics and Government," plus textbooks, teacher's guides and other materials for elementary, middle and high school levels. This great quantity of words is short on facts but long on inculcating attitudes.
CCE's textbook called "We the People: the Citizen and the Constitution" admits a peculiar aversion to facts: "The primary purpose of this text is not to fill your head with a lot of facts about American history and geography. Knowledge of the facts is important but only insofar as it deepens your understanding of the American Constitutional system and its development."
"Deepens your understanding," that is, of a prescribed worldview without cluttering your mind with hard facts about American history and what's actually in the U.S. Constitution. For example, the fact that the U.S. Constitution contains a Second Amendment doesn't exist in the book called "Standards."
This is curious because, while the federal law was vague about the content of the standards CCE was empowered to write, the law was very specific in demanding instruction on the Bill of Rights. Many pages of "Standards" are devoted to the Bill of Rights but, funny thing, the Second Amendment is completely censored out.
The 180 pages of "Standards," of course, contain much that is informative, but the information is peripheral to the selling of a political agenda designed to change the student rather than educate him. The book admits that "Standards" is trying to teach "certain dispositions or traits of character."
One major theme is a put-down of allegiance to national sovereignty. Professor Allen Quist of Bethany Lutheran College made a word count and discovered that the book contains only eight references to national sovereignty, but 17 references to the environment, 42 references to diversity, and 42 to multiculturalism.
When "Standards" listed the seven "fundamental values" of the United States, national sovereignty didn't make the cut, but diversity did.
Six of the eight mentions of national sovereignty use the same curious wording: "The world is divided into nation-states that claim sovereignty over a defined territory and jurisdiction over everyone within it."
Do we only "claim" national sovereignty, or is it a historical fact that we won our national sovereignty in a War of Independence and we jolly well need it to protect ourselves against foreign aggressors. The words "divided into" imply that maybe it would be better if we were not "divided" into countries, phrasing that is a favorite of those who advocate global government.
CCE's "Standards" puts two government purposes on equivalent levels: "the protection of the rights of individuals and the promotion of the common good." The words "common good" are repeated over and over again in this book, but they are not in our Constitution.
"The common good" can mean whatever a totalitarian government wants it to mean. Our Founders never would have ranked "common good" as an equal value with our individual rights.
The last page of "Standards" gives its final advice to the students: Citizens have "the ability to reaffirm or change fundamental constitutional values." Is that what a federal curriculum is all about -- changing our constitutional values?

"Due Diligence" (as indicated in Footnote 8) - Re: the "Standards":
Quoting the PDF of 9-12 Standards
"The constitutional values and principles held by Americans provide the foundation for their attitudes regarding the proper ends and means of political life. They have shaped American political institutions and practices.
In addition to experience, several intellectual traditions have influenced the development of American constitutional democracy. Among the most important of these were the ideas of classical liberalism with its emphasis on individual rights and classical republicanism. Throughout most of our history, the ideas associated with liberalism have been dominant. These ideas emerged in the seventeenth century and were further developed during the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. The view that the individual, possessing certain inalienable rights, is the basic unit of society is the fundamental element of classical liberal thought. Classical liberalism includes the ideas that governments are created by the people to protect their inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property and derive their authority from the consent of the governed. The Declaration of Independence is a succinct statement of the central ideas of classical liberalism."
If this blog-writer were teaching American Civics and Government he would be asking a lot of questions of his students. Just in the above quoted paragraphs he'd start with questions re: "American constitutional democracy". I.e. "Where in the four Organic Laws can you find the term 'democracy'?"
Re: "inalienable rights" -
Interesting to this writer that he recently posted on this phrase how it is a compromise of the phrase "unalienable Rights" which is how it is written in the Declaration of Independence. The two phrases have different meanings. The later one is the superior one. The distinction of terms is pronounced when reading "inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property" when in the Declaration of Independence we read:
"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
What's really curious to this writer is that Civic Ed.org includes "unalienable rights" as a term in their "Terms to Know" yet claims that inalienable is the superior term. This writer is sticking with what the Declaration of Independence actually says!
Continuing with the above focus - this writer sent the following (to an email address listed at the website in Footnote 7 however it bounced):
Thank you for "The People's Voice"!
Just discovered your site via an article search from a forward I received from Paycheck Piracy.
I appreciate your links under:
"DO YOU KNOW
United States Constitution
Declaration of Independence
The Bill of Rights
Good to see the "Declaration of Independence" along with the "United States Constitution", etc. I am a student of the Organic Laws Institute with professor Dr. Ed Rivera. Are you familiar with Ed Rivera? As far as I know he is the only professor in America who teaches a basic course in government wholly based upon the four Organic Laws. In light of this teaching - we need to have the perspective of the four Organic Laws in order to understand several essential matters presented in the "Constitution of September 17, 1787". I am happy to share more about this if you like.
Looking forward to the possibility of hearing from you!

"The two great points of difference between a democracy and a republic"

Letter in regards to a new California law (concerning medical weed) to a friend who says: "I do not consent".
I certainly appreciate your educational outreach in regards to "Notices" and especially concerning the free-will nature of each individual's "Consent". I think we agree that none of us ever got informed about this legal reality during any of our government-controlled school days (can read: "daze" ; ~ )
I wish to add another essential point: the proprietary-based limitations of government jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of California government is Lawfully limited by its Constitution. "The California Constitution ... is subordinate to the Constitution of the United States, which is the supreme law of the land." The Constitution of the United States(sic) is limited to lands, territories, possessions, buildings and the like that it owns. In other words all government jurisdiction is strictly proprietary-based. Without this understanding individuals are not standing most securely on the foundation of Organic Law!
The Constitution of September 17, 1787 defines what Lawful jurisdiction is. That jurisdiction is limited to what the States have given to that Constitution's government. It is a proprietary-based jurisdiction just as it is stated in terms of its “exclusive Legislative jurisdiction”. See: Article I, Section 8, (par.17) “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) ... and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; ...".
Therefore California laws include the proprietary-based jurisdiction limitations of "the United States Constitution".
Therefore "The price for freedom from external government is: speaking the truth about the government's proprietary-based jurisdiction."
For those who understand that all government jurisdiction is and must be proprietary based (that includes every "Act" passed by the California State legislature) they can consider adding "for cause" and/or "lack of authority" to their non-consent reply.
Toward greater freedom!

More re: the Organic Laws:
"... The government is operating deceptively by using a governing document, the Articles of Confederation, alleged by government, educators and the media to be repealed. The government is using the Constitution to confuse government territory (that can be identified as the "United States") with the United States of America. Once the government’s deceptive techniques are learned, future governmental attempts at deception will be less successful until they will become obsolete."
The 22nd -
"... though the Congress of the United states would like it to be forgotten, it is the work of liberty loving people to study and revive the memory and usage of all the Organic Laws, to discredit the whoredoms of Congress and bring it to heel by the limits to territorial jurisdiction admitted by Art 1 Sec 8 Cl 1 &17."
Also: "... It is we, who are sovereign, who inherited the land, by birthright, and it was not the United States of America, precisely because it was our forefathers blood, sacrifice and honor in defending the Declaration of Independence that won the land from King George III. We who are sovereigns must hold very clearly our spiritual and lawful relationship to land which we inherited by birthright as a free people in consequence of our winning the War of Independence. "

Attempted to post a comment and the site didn't accept it so I'll post it here:
There appears to be on 'issue' in regards to 'Article lll courts':
'Dr. Rivera's research of the United States district courts (USDC) has established that only the United States district court in Hawaii has been established as an Article III court and all other United States district courts in the remaining states have no Article III judicial power, whatsoever.':

" Federal Practice and Procedure: The Court Conspiracy Finally Exposed" -
by Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S. - Private Attorney General,18 U.S.C. 1964
The assertions of "the two different and separate offices of the Article I legislative President of the United States with the Article II executive President of the United States of America" as presented by Dr. Eduardo M. Rivera to his "Students and Subscribers" deserves to be examined first hand by the reader of this blogpost as well as the assertion for "The express separate restrictions and conditions on the impeachment of an Article I President of the United States from that of an Article II President". The Impeachment restrictions of the former "President" can be found in the last clause before Section 4 of Article I and that of the later at Section 4 of Article II.
