Tax Protester Exposes Federal Government Fraud

Ed Brown vows to "live free or die"

Steve Watson & Alex jones
Thursday, January 25, 2007

Alex Jones was joined on air yesterday (MP3) by Ed Brown to discuss his ongoing case to fight charges of tax evasion. Mr Brown and his wife have not filed or paid federal income taxes since 1997, citing the fact that there is no law that stipulates American citizens have to pay income taxes. Prosecutors claim (based upon arbitrary figures provided by the IRS) that the couple "owes" $625,000 in taxes. A jury agreed in court on Thursday the 18th of January.

Mr Brown described the actions of the authorities against him over the past two years:

"We thought they'd be here ten years ago, they came in ten years later in November of 2004. They arrived with twenty-eight approximate personel. Twenty of them were CID, IRS, two US Marshals and one postal officer. They had up on the hill a sniper with three observers, two state troopers backing them up behind them and one state trooper across the street. Everybody was armed and everybody had body armour.

We were waiting for them to do this because we already knew there was no law for the tax, but we couldn't just go in there and sue them, it wouldn't work, the courts would just dismiss it."

The authorities entered his property, questioned Brown and downloaded information from his computer.

Following these actions, Brown filed a tort against four officials that were in charge of the operation he described. It was turned over to the United States district court who in turn transferred the case to the federal court. Mr Brown notified them that there was no federal jurisdiction involved in the case. Eventually the case was dismissed and six months later Brown says he was arrested and physically assaulted by police officers.

Brown was not served with an arrest warrant, was not given any counsel and was unlawfully dragged away and thrown into a holding cell. Brown was then hauled before a United States district Judge who proceeded to serve him with papers. The judge asked Brown how he pleaded, whilst Brown was still unaware of what it was he was being charged with.

After a court appointed attorney pleaded not guilty without any consultation with Mr Brown, he was then told that he could not be released unless he turned over the firearms he keeps at home. Brown relented and allowed the authorities to take the guns from his house, an opportunity they seized upon as an excuse to raid Brown's house and take anything they could find.

Mr. Brown’s wife, Elaine, was convicted Jan. 18 as well. Both are due to be sentenced April 24.

Mr. Brown had been in court with Mrs. Brown Jan. 9-11 but stopped attending on the grounds that the process seemed like a “kangaroo court” in which Judge McAuliffe obstructed him from bringing in the evidence and/or witnesses to argue his point that there is no law requiring payment of an unapportioned direct tax, such as the federal income tax, on the labor of American workers, including he and his wife.

As American Free Press has reported:

The judge’s decision to disallow evidence and witnesses for the defendants—along with his notes to the jury that he would not allow Mr. Brown to try and persuade the jurors on the validity of his claims that there is no law requiring payment of income tax on labor—are examples cited by those in the national movement to pass ballot initiatives to reign in judicial corruption. These advocates say it is just such an apparent violation of due process that creates the need for these initiatives.

Mr Brown cited Aaron Russo's recent massive hit film, America: Freedom to Fascism, as an important expose that has focused a great deal more attention on his own case and the unlawful income tax system. The film has exploded back into the google video top 20 as a result of the media coverage of Brown's case. In recent developments Mr Brown agreed to let Fox news conduct an interview in his home on the proviso that the reporters sit down with him and watch the entirety of Russo's film.

Russo expertly exposes the traitorous Federal Reserve Act and the fact that there is no law that stipulates American citizens have to pay income taxes. The ratification of the 16th amendment, also known as the "Tax amendment", represents a fundamental undermining of Constitutional law in America. It is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated against the American people by the elite private banking institutions that have usurped government as an arm of their overall control mechanism.

Russo presents interviews with an impressive range of government officials, IRS special agents , FBI officers, Politicians and tax attorneys who have researched and subsequently campaigned against the Federal Reserve Act and thus reveals why the IRS is an illegal foundation.

The income tax does not meet either criteria of Constitutionally legal taxation in America, that is direct apportioned tax or indirect uniform tax. The IRS claims that the 16th Amendment allowed for a third form of taxation, however, the supreme court ruling on the amendment states that it allows for no new forms of taxation. More supreme court cases in the same period confirm the same conclusion. The 16th Amendment did not allow the Federal Government to levy a new tax, thus there is no Constitutional basis for the income tax.

While the AP have described Ed Brown as being "holed up" and "barricaded" in his "compound" like some kind of dangerous extremist, he is in fact simply refusing to leave his house. Friends and well wishers have been gathering to support Mr Brown at his home in New Hampshire. He expects that federal agents will wait until the media coverage of his case has died down before attempting to forcibly enter his home to arrest him.

“Live free or die.” Brown told listeners as he declared he was a man of the creator and the slave of no man.

Happy Birthday General Lee

Robert E. Lee at 200

by Gail Jarvis
by Gail Jarvis

The 200th anniversary of the birth of Robert E. Lee occurs on January 19th, and this year the number and variety of Lee celebrations may set a new record. In Britain, the American Civil War Round Table will hold a series of lectures honoring General Lee during the month of January. In America, commemorative events are planned throughout the year.

Lee celebrations have proliferated in recent years despite demands for the removal of Lee memorabilia by local chapters of the NAACP and other militant groups. The self-serving rhetoric of these groups has provoked others to commit acts of vandalism resulting in the smashing of Lee statuary and the firebombing of murals containing depictions of the General.

Lee admirers are sorely disappointed by the capitulations of elected officials to demands by these belligerent activists. Rather than making an effort to defend Lee memorabilia or allowing the public to decide its fate, many elected officials have simply caved in to removal demands, often covertly eliminating Lee tributes to avoid public recriminations – such was the case when then Texas Governor, George W. Bush conspired with his crony, Texas Supreme Court Justice, Albert Gonzales, to have a Robert E. Lee plaque furtively removed from the Texas Supreme Court building on a weekend when the Court was not in session.

Regrettably, Bush’s deceitful act is typical of many of our politicians. They are ruled by political expediency, and will not do anything that has not been scrutinized by spin doctors who evaluate how interest groups might react; how media will respond, or what the potential impact on political careers might be. So what we get is a committee-sanctioned maneuver designed to conceal the politician’s true actions or to allow him to give the appearance of having taken a stand without actually doing so.

Our leaders were not always so weak-willed in prior generations. And, I maintain, they had a better grasp of history than today’s crop of obsequious political hacks. As an illustration, I offer a letter from President Eisenhower written in response to a critic. The complainant’s letter, dated August 1, 1960, takes issue with President Eisenhower’s expressed admiration for Robert E. Lee and reads as follows:

Dear Mr. President:

"At the Republican Convention I heard you mention that you have the pictures of four (4) great Americans in your office, and that included in these is a picture of Robert E. Lee.

I do not understand how any American can include Robert E. Lee as a person to be emulated, and why the President of the United States of America should do so is certainly beyond me.

The most outstanding thing that Robert E. Lee did was to devote his best efforts to the destruction of the United States Government, and I am sure that you do not say that a person who tries to destroy our Government is worthy of being hailed as one of our heroes.

Will you please tell me just why you hold him in such high esteem?"

Sincerely yours,

Leon W. Scott, DDS
New Rochelle, NY

To his credit, President Eisenhower did not embarrass his correspondent by correcting his extraordinary misreading of American history but simply explained why he held Robert E. Lee in such high regard.

August 9, 1960

Dear Dr. Scott:

Respecting your August 1 inquiry calling attention to my often expressed admiration for General Robert E. Lee, I would say, first, that we need to understand that at the time of the War Between the States the issue of Secession had remained unresolved for more than 70 years. Men of probity, character, public standing and unquestioned loyalty, both North and South, had disagreed over this issue as a matter of principle from the day our Constitution was adopted.

General Robert E. Lee was, in my estimation, one of the supremely gifted men produced by our Nation. He believed unswervingly in the Constitutional validity of his cause which until 1865 was still an arguable question in America; he was thoughtful yet demanding of his officers and men, forbearing with captured enemies but ingenious, unrelenting and personally courageous in battle, and never disheartened by a reverse or obstacle. Through all his many trials, he remained selfless almost to a fault and unfailing in his belief in God. Taken altogether, he was noble as a leader and as a man, and unsullied as I read the pages of our history.

From deep conviction I simply say this: a nation of men of Lee’s caliber would be unconquerable in spirit and soul. Indeed, to the degree that present-day American youth will strive to emulate his rare qualities, including his devotion to this land as revealed in his painstaking efforts to help heal the nation’s wounds once the bitter struggle was over, we, in our own time of danger in a divided world, will be strengthened and our love of freedom sustained.

Such are the reasons that I proudly display the picture of this great American on my office wall.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

When we compare Eisenhower’s actions with the behavior of our current politicians, we can only feel a sense of loss. Today’s elected officials have been so intimidated by the politically correct pestilence that has infected our nation that they would never casually express an opinion on any subject for fear that it might offend someone, somewhere. But President Eisenhower belonged to another generation, and his respectful response to his obtuse critic is what we would have expected from a man who had Robert E. Lee as a role-model. Certainly, it would be hard to find a better role-model than Robert E. Lee, a noble Christian gentleman who continues to inspire Americans almost 140 years after his death.

Rebel with a Cause

"If you want to ask me about my ancestral roots, I am a Confederate-American. I was born colored, negro, then one day somebody decided to make me African-American. Nobody asked me about that. Africa didn't want me then, and she certainly doesn't want me now."

On slave reparations:

"Our history has been lied about so much starting back in 1865, with the Northern propaganda used to try and drive a wedge between black folks and white folks."

"Reparations is just another lie. I'm not looking for reparations. That's just another way to divide white folks and black folks."

Time to remove a dictator

Time to remove a dictator

January 15, 2007 7:53 AM | Rant | Comments (53)


Enough of this pussyfooting: It's time to impeach.

Not just Bush: Bush and Cheney. Both belong behind bars, not just for high crimes and misdemeanors against the Constitution of the United States but for war crimes and murder on an international scale.

Try them in the Senate and then ship them to the Hague to be tried as war criminals and for the deaths of each American soldier and Iraqi civilian in their illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq.

But let's not stop there: Arrest Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld as co-conspirators in a plot to destroy the Democratic Republic of the United States of America. Add, as fellow conspirators, every member of Congress who voted to authorize Bush's dirty little war and who voted for the rights-robbing USA Patriot Act the fist time around and/or extension of that vile law the second time.

America is a country out of control, led by a government that doesn't listen to its people. Bush, on national television Sunday night, admitted he doesn't much care what the American people think about him or his war. He's going to do whatever he damn well pleases because he knows no one has the power or the balls to stop him.
Sadly, he's right. Bush consolidated his power by leveraging a shell-shocked, Republican-led Congress after 9/11 to give him everything he wanted. Democrats share the blame. Most of them also voted for the war and for the USA Patriot Act.

The Republican leadership may be gone but the Democrats who replaced them aren't listening to the voters who put them into power. They talk lamely of non-binding resolutions against the war, hearings ad infinitum and the standard political rhetoric that has, for too long, replaced any real leadership in the halls of Congress.

The time has come to stop talking. The time has come to act. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi must remove the shackles from her colleagues who want to impeach a President who has, with the help of Congress, overthrown the government of this country and established - for all practical purposes - a dictatorship that answers to no one.

If Pelosi refuses to act, then let her term as Speaker be a short one and put the reign of the party of the jackass into mothballs when our turn comes again at the ballot box. The Republicans failed and the Democrats seem destined to follow. Let's scrap the two-party system in this country and look elsewhere for our leaders. Perhaps a third party or perhaps no party. The political system in America is an outmoded, scandal-ridden, corrupt dinosaur that no longer listens to the will of the people or cares a rat's ass about the nation.

Bush must go. So must Cheney. And if the Congress won't do the job, then they must go too.

The only real questions are how and how soon? Can Americans afford to wait until 2008 to lance the festering boils on the body politic?

I'm not sure we can.

Will Plainfield be another Waco?

Ed and Elaine Brown


by Mark Yannone

In defending themselves against a federal government they claim is operating outside the government's jurisdiction, Ed and Elaine Brown have filed 42 motions in Concord, New Hampshire's, US District Court and had every one denied. The couple then spent three days in court last week listening to the federal government try to build an income tax case against them.

"Of course the government failed. They didn't prove a thing. There's nothing to prove. We didn't violate a statute because there is no statute, and they don't even have jurisdiction. In fact, the court is operating out of a building that New Hampshire never ceded to the federal government--as the law requires in order to have jurisdiction over anyone who has ever been tried in that court!"

But it gets worse. When Judge McAuliffe gave the Browns a draft copy of the jury instructions he planned to deliver at the end of the trial, the contents convinced Ed Brown that McAuliffe would never let him present the kind of defense he planned.

Ed Brown called me on Saturday evening and said that it was clearly pointless for them to go back into that courtroom, and they will not go. Consequently, he fully expects an armed assault by law enforcement at his home on Tuesday, which he and his friend Michael believe will result in a Waco-type scenario. Quipped Michael, "At least we'll be warm."

Ed Brown said he had one simple message for America: "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country."

[Related stories]

Update: 01/14/07

The nationwide call has gone out on Rick Stanley's Standing Up For America Radio Show for Americans to peacefully assemble at Ed and Elaine Brown's property line--armed with weapons and cameras-- to protect them with a virtual "wall of Americans." Their address is 401 Center of Town Rd, Plainfield NH 03781, their phone number is 603-675-2909, and their e-mail address is Edward.L.Brown@valley.net. [Listen] 17:31

Those who will be able to go to Ed and Elaine's aid are asked to please notify Rick Stanley by e-mail, so he can publish every one of them in the "Scoop Newsletter" (initials only, to protect privacy) and let America know about this showdown and what they can do to help.

Update: 01/15/07

Ed Brown (or a spokesperson, depending upon what happens that day) will be on The Peter Mac Show on Tuesday, January 16, from 5 to 6 p.m. CST.

Jewish Abortion Industry Targets White Christians

January 2, 2007
Jews Murder Christian Babies at Sea

Jews have been the driving force behind legalizing abortion in (formerly) Christian countries, such as the United States, France, England, Canada, et al. But in some Western nations, the people still have a modicum of common sense, and refuse to allow Jews to get rich performing their favorite pastime: Jewish ritual killing of Christian babies.

The Jews were obviously frustrated by their inability to practice infanticide in every country of the West. However, the people who invented the word chutzpah were not going to let quaint things like laws, morals, or respect for life get in the way of their fun. As expected, they came up with the perfect solution to satisfy their infanticidal needs: abortion ships that dock in countries where abortion is illegal. Kind of like riverboat casinos anchored permanently on the Mississippi, circumventing anti-gambling laws in the surrounding states.

This article from Life News states:
The pro-abortion group typically anchors the boat in international waters, where the nation’s laws don’t apply. There, abortion activists are free to do abortions, give women the dangerous RU-486 abortion drug or hand out the morning after pill.
Jewess Rebecca Gomperts, foundress of Women on Waves (Jewish Murderers at Sea), will be sailing down to Argentina in 2007, after being roundly rejected there in 2004. One wonders what could motivate such “humanitarian” tenacity? Perhaps we can discern her motivation by examining the countries in which she chooses to conduct her “works of mercy”. You can catch the hint right here:
The crew … tried to sail for the Portuguese shore … in September 2004 but the Catholic country’s top officials called on a naval vessel to block the ship and prevent it from docking at a harbor in the northern part of the country.
Bitch-slapped out of Portugal, Gomperts must have been despondent at the thought of all those live babies in utero, threatening to be born intact. But she quickly put on her Talmudic thinking-cap, conspired with her tribesmen, and got to speak on Portuguese television. This is my favorite part. It tells you all you need to know about the Jewish mindset:
Although the abortion ship failed to distribute any abortion drugs to Portuguese women, Gomperts appeared on a television talk show and instructed women on how to purchase an ulcer drug at pharmacies and misuse it to produce an abortion.
So, not content simply to murder babies on shore in most Christian countries, Jews now troll the high seas, seeking out babies who might otherwise escape the kosher cuisinart. Why not give free abortions in Haifa or Brooklyn, one is tempted to ask? But the answer to that would be obvious to anyone with cajones enough to call a spade a spade - or a Jew a Jew, as it were.

The ending of the article provides more evidence of the true motivation behind their maritime endeavors:
The abortion boat traveled to Poland in 2003 and Ireland in 2001.
They deliberately choose countries in which to kill en masse their most hated, historical enemies, extirpating those genes forever. According to the Geneva Conventions, this is known as “genocide”. But then, that term only applies to Jewish victims, even when said “genocide” never actually occurred.

Let’s see now: Poland, Argentina, Ireland and Portugal. What do these countries have in common?

Argentina, by the way, is an extremely sophisticated South American country. And no one considers Portugal, Poland or Ireland third-world countries. So the problem can’t be poverty or over-population.

Only in a post-Catholic world could people be dumbed-down enough to pay for the privilege of allowing their children to be used in Jewish ritual killings. And they don’t even reimburse us for the sanguinary additive to their matzo balls!

Denver Post:

Up here, in the Northern Plains, we just recovered
from a Historic event--- may I even say a "Weather
Event" of "Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic
blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90
MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility
poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow
banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of
communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.


George Bush did not come.

FEMA did nothing.

No one howled for the government.

No one blamed the government.

No one even uttered an expletive on TV .

Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.

Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.

Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else,

CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or
report on this category 5 snowstorm. Nobody
demanded $2,000 debit cards.

No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.

No one looted.

Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do

Nobody expected the government to do anything,

No Larry King, No Bill O'Reilly, No Oprah, No
Chris Mathews and No Geraldo Rivera.

No Sean Penn, No Barbara Streisand, No Hollywood

Nope, we just melted the snow for water.

Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of

The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks
and didn't ask for a penny.

Local restaurants made food and the police and

We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil
lanterns or Coleman lanterns.

We put on extra layers of clothes because up here
it is "Work or Die".

We did not wait for some affirmative action
government to get us out of a mess created by being
immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes
for 'sittin at home' checks.

Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale
has never fallen this early, we know it can happen
and how to deal with it ourselves.

"In my many travels, I have noticed that once one
gets north of about 48 degrees North Latitude, 90%

It does seem that way, at least to me.

Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa


From 1991 to 1994, Keith Richburg was based in Nairobi as the Africa bureau chief for the Washington Post. He traveled throughout Africa, from Rwanda to Zaire, witnessing and reporting on wars, famines, mass murders, and the complexity and corruption of African politics. Unlike many black Americans who romanticize Africa, Richburg looks back on his time there and concludes that he is simply an American, not an African American. This is a powerful, hard-hitting book, filled with anguished soul-searching as Richburg makes his way toward that uncomfortable conclusion.
