Cracking the Code (Book) the full story....TheDOJ Folds]
Some encouraging news, if you are not already aware of it.
The DOJ Faces Reality, Even Though The IRS Won't:
Two Cases Against Pete Hendrickson (an author of CRACKING THE CODE) are
For the second and third time now, the U.S. Department of Justice has
withdrawn its support from IRS efforts to suppress
'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America'.
Earlier this week, U.S. attorneys representing the Department formally
to enforce two IRS summonses issued as part of a desperate effort by the
agency to keep this transformational book out of the hands of the American
public. Even though the IRS won't face the reality that it has no legal
means to accomplish this goal, the DOJ hasn't any choice.
The awkward reality that the IRS does face is that it has no legitimate
dispute with the information in
Code-...'. Indeed, the government has been routinely acknowledging the
accuracy of that information for well over a year now in the most telling
possible fashion, by responding to readers who act upon what they learn
with http://www.losthorizons.com/tax/MoreVictories.htm> refunds of every
penny withheld for federal taxes, including Social Security
'contributions'; the cancellation of liens and levies; and the wiping of
even decades-old 'liabilities' off the books. As these responses,
though required by law, are inconvenient to the agency's primary objective
(which is to maximize the revenue taken into the federal treasury, period)
the IRS is engaged in a protracted effort to hamper, discourage, and, if
possible, forcibly halt my distribution of the book and the posting of
related information on my website,
http://www.losthorizons.com>losthorizons.com. At the same time, the
'service' has been seeking to secure the names of Americans who have
purchased the book. Presumably, this is so these readers can be directly
targeted with a scare campaign intended to intimidate them into not acting
upon what they have learned-- because as noted above,
once those readers HAVE acted, it's too late to thwart their lawful
behavior and "close the barn door".
In furtherance of these corrupt purposes, a year ago (March, 2004) the IRS
issued a summons for the usual "everything, including a DNA sample" about
me and the company that processes orders for my book, Lost Horizons, under
the pretext of an "abusive tax shelter promotion investigation"
about that here). In June, the 'service' sought to enforce this summons
through the district court. A month later, having been made aware of its
true purpose, the U.S. Attorney for Eastern Michigan moved the court to
dismiss the enforcement proceeding. After another
two months during which the U.S. Attorney's post changed hands, the
'service' came back for another bite at the apple, again seeking to enforce
the same summons. In the meantime, the IRS had also issued a summons to
PayPal, the company that handles charge sales for me, seeking a list of
everyone who had bought a copy of
http://www.losthorizons.com/Cracking_the_Code.htm Cracking the Code-...'
by that method. I petitioned the federal district court in Sacramento to
quash that summons, and the government filed in opposition.
The DOJ, being accustomed to routine success against those targeted by the
IRS, appears to have taken the legitimacy of the agency's case on faith to
begin with. However, the department quickly came to understand that what
it had been dragged into was anything but an ordinary situation. Whether
for reasons of integrity or mere pragmatism, by December the department
began asking for postponements, explaining that it needed time to try and
reason with its client (the IRS). At the end of the second thirty-day
postponement, attorneys for the department contacted my counsel at CIR,
asking if I'd be willing to let both proceedings be dismissed without
Realizing that as the information in
http://www.losthorizons.com/Cracking_the_Code.htm>Cracking the Code-...'
spreads, the government is going to need every penny it can legitimately
retain to help ease its transition from a swollen, arrogant Leviathan back
to its proper Constitutional stature without burning up the brakes, I was
This will not be the end of the IRS's efforts, of course. They'll try to
prevent the derailment of the tax-and-spend gravy-train upon which
Washington frolics until the bitter end. After all, the only alternative
is to go out into the real world and find honest jobs. A pretext for
another assault will quickly be contrived. At the same time, the
inside-the-beltway crowd will scramble like madmen to either package up
by which an alternative scheme can be fastened onto the people, or to
fashion a new curtain behind which the old one can retreat once more into
comforting darkness. But for the moment, the 'service' has been bumped back
onto its behind.
In the meantime, word spreads. Well over 250,000 documents
chock-full-of-truth have been downloaded from
http://www.losthorizons.com>losthorizons.com just in the last two months
alone by Americans fed up with governments that have forgotten that WE are
the lawmakers, and when we wrote the Constitutions that gave them life, we
meant what we said. Thousands of copies of
Cracking the Code-...' are in the hands of folks whose attitude toward
book-burners is other than timidly cooperative; dozens of copies are in
libraries across America; the book is even being read in Eastern Europe.
It's a tiny start, in light of the magnitude of the task-- but today, at
least, it's free to grow unhindered.
P. S. The pragmatism that has motivated the DOJ in these matters may well
involve nothing more than the certainty that it cannot prevail legally-- a
consideration of only peripheral significance to the IRS, which finds its
own purposes served simply by burdening me with the need to deal with these
assaults. However, it is also possible that
the "reasoning" the DOJ undertook with the IRS was to point out that to
proceed with these legal actions had more downside than upside even from
the perspective of the 'service' itself, due to the potential publicity for
http://www.losthorizons.com/Cracking_the_Code.htm Cracking the Code-...'.
hope that those reading these words who are not comfortable with the idea
of an agency of OUR government spending OUR money to suppress speech it
finds inconvenient will help thwart that likely motivation by raising their
readers say about 'Cracking the Code-...'
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34.
