    Message 1 of 1 , Feb 5, 2013
      I was wondering when it might be deemed appropriate to publish this exchange and recent developments have indicated that now is the time.

      Kent Hovind has most recently caused to be published part of his consequent correspondence with Forbes Contributor Peter J. Reilly, and Kent earlier falsely represented our correspondence and how it came to an unexpected (from this side) end.

      I also note that I am not aware of what correspondence actually took place between Kent Hovind and his supporters that led to Kent deciding to invite me to correspond with him.

      If Kent Hovind feels he may have been misled regarding my interests in his and Jo's cases, that is NOT, NOT, NOT, NOT my problem. I have never misrepresented my interests and if my interests were misrepresented to Kent Hovind, that is NOT, NOT, NOT, NOT my problem.

      Kent and his folks have lots of secrets and they like to keep them, as is evident in Kent's evasive, recent message addressed to Peter J. Reilly. When I wouldn't play Kent's game and pressed him to answer my simple questions after answering his, Kent pulled the plug, unexpectedly.

      You are encouraged to review the correspondence below and make your own judgment. Your feedback and discussion is also encouraged and welcomed.

      Subject: RE: Testing the system!

      Kent,

      Looks like it is working both ways now.

      I check my email often, but I am going to have to remember
      that this correspondence does not show up in my personal
      email box. I have to go to the website, be signed in, and
      then check on messages.

      Peter J. Reilly, a Grant-Thornton Accounting Office manager
      of sorts, and a Forbes on-line contributor, posted the
      following note recently at the end of one of his tax columns:

      > I am happy to hear from any "patriots",
      > "sovereign citizens" or anybody else who
      > thinks that the income tax does not apply
      > to ordinary Americans who have sufficient
      > taxable income.

      Our connections, as I understand them, are a result of that invitation
      and in a round about way I was advised of your
      interest in taking Peter up on his offer; while preferring
      to use me as a go-between instead of corresponding with Peter directly.

      Should you wish to correspond directly with Peter, here's his
      email address:

      peterreillycpa@...

      I figured it was you that had something you wanted to get out
      for Peter's consideration as he may be willing to develop a
      column or more featuring your case(s).

      So, in that context, I would be the one advising you to "let
      me know" what you might want me to pass along to Peter.

      I advised Peter that we had set up this contact and asked if
      he had anything in particular to take up with you. I haven't
      heard back yet, and will continue to ask for specifics should
      our correspondence continue.

      As for me, my present, personal interest in your cases has to
      do with what Jo's plans are regarding her recent U.S. Tax Court
      decision and what you plan on doing regarding the U.S. Tax Court's
      latest order in your case; a response of which is due from you by
      January 30, 2013, if you plan to make a response.

      I appreciate the opportunity to help facilitate the mutual
      interest you and Peter might have in addressing your situation.

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      Hmmm?

      1.

      There is a button someplace you can push to make the email
      system notify you when one is waiting. Not sure how it works
      but Ted can tell you I think.

      2.

      I'd like to see Peter define some terms first. I learned in the creation
      evolutionism debate that defining terms is an essential first step.
      What is his definition of patriot? income tax? income? etc. I have
      always said that everyone should obey the law and pay any tax they
      owe to the legitimate authorities. I do not consider myself a tax protestor
      or a law breaker.

      3.

      I can only have 30 email contacts at a time and you are #30. I can't
      add Peter w/o dropping someone and with the legal battle and my book
      projects and family I need the ones I have right now. I guess you can
      be go-between if you don't mind.

      4.

      I know nothing of Jo's tax court decision nor did I know I have a deadline
      to respond by Jan 30 to anything. They have not notified me of any of this.
      I've not heard from "tax court" in several years. I think, in America, you get
      to face your accusers and cannot be tried "in abstetia" or whatever the Latin
      phrase is. Can you send me a copy of the "Tax Court's latest order" you
      reference please? I will cc this to Paul Hansen the ministry trustee since he
      handles the legal stuff.

      Thanks!

      Kent,

      I will pass along your message to Peter and see if he will
      draft a reply for me to forward to you.

      I think it is a little late for you to be trying to plead ignorance
      regarding the case your brought before the U.S. Tax Court,
      via your authorized legal representative, Jerold W. Barringer.
      Who knows, though, the Court might have some sympathies
      for you if you tell a good tale.

      (By the way, would you care to try and convince as to why it
      is you might be uninformed regarding Jo's recent U.S. Tax Court decision?)

      You are the moving party in your U.S. Tax Court case. You sued to
      have the Tax Court take jurisdiction over the determination of your
      tax matters, and they did, and then you failed to prosecute your
      case and it is now on the verge of being decided "in absentia", as it were.

      Here's the text of the latest as publicly available on the U.S. Tax Court website:

      https://www.ustaxcourt.gov/UstcDockInq/DocketDisplay.aspx?DocketNo=10004245

      UNITED STATES TAX COURT
      WASHINGTON, DC 20217

      DRB

      Kent Hovind,

      Petitioner,

      v. Docket No. 4245-10.

      COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE,

      Respondent

      O R D E R

      As directed by the Court in its Order dated
      December 17, 2012, respondent filed a Motion
      for Entry of Decision on December 26, 2012.

      Upon due consideration, it is ORDERED that,
      on or before January 30, 2013, petitioner
      shall file an Objection, Notice of No
      Objection, or other Response to respondent's
      motion for entry of decision.

      Failure to comply with this Order will result
      in the granting of respondent's motion and
      entry of decision sustaining the determinations
      set forth in the notice of deficiency on which
      this case is based.

      (end Tax Court Order text)

      I will be in touch later and consider other matters as I get time.

      As much as I would like to continue to be directly involved, if you
      decide the process would be more efficient by communicating directly
      with Peter, I could give up my #30 spot and you could plug him in.

      Just a thought.

      Subject: A review of those documents you mentioned!

      Kent,

      I think I found the clicker to get me notified in my personal
      email when you send me a message via CorrLinks. Ted, as
      you suggested, clued me in.

      As to your request regarding reading material:

      1.

      http://www.2peter3.com/Court_Docs/banker letter .pdf

      The banker's letter

      My comments:

      I notice it was signed "an anonymous patriot, for now".

      Alleged testimonials from anonymous "bankers" does nothing
      for me as it might relate to your criminal case.

      As I understand it, under our "rule of law", anonymous bankers
      and defendants like you do not get to decide questions of law;
      that's left for the judiciary. Even juries are only charged with
      deciding factual and not legal issues (i.e., did Kent Hovind spit
      on the sidewalk).

      2.

      http://www.2peter3.com/3rd affidavit.html

      The Third Affidavit

      My Comments:

      I've browsed through that 10 pages and didn't see anything
      in particular to impress me about anything in particular except
      that it seemed quite typical of "tax protestor" antics in producing
      as much "paper" as they can to put into the system.

      Kent, can you identify one, simple matter contained therein that
      you may wish to discuss more specifically?

      3.

      http://www.2peter3.com/Court_Docs/365.pdf

      Document #365 - Hovind's Memorandum of Law to Support Motion
      to Vacate and Set Aside or Correct Sentence

      My Comments:

      Who wrote that for you, Kent?

      It's over 2 years old; didn't work!

      You have filed "a 100" motions and, as I noted above, they are
      consistent with the antics of "tax protestors" who, among other
      things, like to clog the system with paper work.

      You were tried and found wanting, Kent.

      Your appeals were considered on their merits.
      Your motions were considered on their merits.

      It doesn't matter what you think about the propriety of the law
      as it is applied to you and it doesn't matter what I think about
      that; though we might have some interesting conversations about
      that.

      When push comes to shove, we have a judiciary responsible for
      deciding any disputes between you and me and the feds over
      such things as put you behind bars and at risk for millions in
      personal, income tax liabilities.

      If there is something specific you want to chat about in that
      document, Kent, detail it, briefly, and maybe I can discuss that
      with you further.

      By the way Kent, what, if any, connections or personal knowledge
      do you have with Ed Umpervitch who I chatted with a bit about
      such things via your FaceBook page?

      He most recently dropped out of that conversation.

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      Kent,

      Following my name below is the brief note I got from Peter in
      response to me sending him your note with your questions for
      him. He's pressed for time and so may have more to say later.
      You might also wish to give me more specific information, commentary,
      analysis, opinions, whatever from you to forward to him for further
      consideration. He will have to work through the details as he gets
      time, not knowing right now where the exchange might lead.

      Also, in relation to Peter's comments, and your earlier claim of
      ignorance regarding your own U.S. Tax Court case, I offer the
      following comments from an earlier U.S. Tax Court decision in your case:

      UNITED STATES TAX COURT
      WASHINGTON, DC 20217

      KENT HOVIND,
      Petitioner,

      v. Docket No. 4245-10.

      COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE,
      Respondent

      O R D E R

      (excerpts)

      the Court notes that the record in this case
      is replete with patently frivolous and groundless
      arguments by petitioner, acting by and through
      his counsel, Mr. Jerold W. Barringer.

      Petitioner is advised that I.R.C. section 6673(a)
      (1) authorizes the Tax Court to require a taxpayer
      to pay to the United States a penalty of up to
      $25,000 whenever it appears that proceedings have
      been instituted or maintained by the taxpayer
      primarily for delay or that the taxpayer's
      position in such proceedings is frivolous or
      groundless.

      Subject: Jo's case and other stuff!

      Kent,

      Following my name below is the text of Jo's entered decision,
      which followed a written opinion from the Court. Forbes'
      Peter J. Reilly published a column on the case when it came out.

      In effect, Jo was deemed to be liable for the tax on 50% of the
      ministry income, plus the penalties and interest. Total of
      something over $3.5 million tax, penalty and interest according
      to my rough estimates.

      As to your case, since you have Barringer representing you,
      supposedly, he would be the one getting or being sent all the
      notices.

      By the way, you haven't tried to convince me why it may be
      the case that you are unaware of Jo's case. What's up with that?

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      P.S. The period for appeal is still running on Jo's case.

      "tried and found wanting...?

      judiciary decides questions of law...

      didn't work...

      Does that prove guilt?
      Does it prove a law was broken?
      Could it be corruption from the courts?
      The gov?
      Do courts and judges ever make mistakes?
      Misread or misapply the law?
      Why is there an appeals process?
      Why are there Appeals courts?
      Do cases ever get overturned on appeal?

      The US Supreme Court-supposedly the top judges in
      the country very often spits 5/4 and rarely votes
      100%.

      What would that mean about reading the law?

      Through history there have been scores of cases
      where the courts ruled one way that history later
      showed to be 100% wrong.

      Slavery in US, Hitler's judges ruling on Jews,
      Stalin's on Christians etc.

      I think you may be assuming more of our court
      system in this case than you should.

      Gotta go now-
      more later if time permits.

      Subject: RE: A review of those documents you mentioned!

      Time for one more quick comment only--

      The banker was a good friend I met in prison.

      He chose to remain anonymous until he was released.

      I don't know where he is now or if he has commented
      to identify himself.

      His name doesn't matter but the issues do.

      The 45 counts I was charged with are flawed for a number
      of reasons spelled out in document 335, 349 and 351 in my
      case.

      If the charge in the indictment is wrong the court lacks
      jurisdiction to hear the case.

      It is NEVER too late to challenge jurisdiction.
      This is NOT over yet. :)

      Since there are still issues being litigated I cannot
      comment much but I will continue on this one topic only
      if you will answer a few simple questions first.

      1.

      Did I break the law Title 31 USC 5313(A),
      5324 (a)(3) and 31 CRF 103.11?

      I'm not asking if the court found me guilty.

      Can you please read the above referenced documents
      and the banker's letter and show me specifically
      what I did that was illegal?

      2.

      IF withdrawing ministry money to pay ministry bills
      in amounts less than $10,000, 12 days apart did
      violate that law- should it have been one count or 45?

      Thanks,

      Kent,

      I was trusting CorrLinks to let me know when you sent me
      messages, as it had started doing, but I didn't get any
      notices and just decided to check in and found your messages.

      I don't think I am assuming any more than I should regarding
      our court system and your case. It wouldn't matter if I was.
      It's your case, and that's a matter for you to work out with the judiciary.

      As I understand it, you've tried that about 100 times and all has failed.

      Last I checked, there wasn't anything going on regarding your
      criminal case.

      If there is something currently in process as you claim, give me a
      legal reference that I can check on and I will look into it and maybe
      give you my opinion on it.

      You are right about the banker, but it goes a little further.
      Neither his name or opinion matters when it comes to deciding
      on the facts of your case, the law, or how the law applies to the
      facts of your case.

      The judge, jury and appeals courts have ruled on what matters as
      to the issues that matter in your case, and that's how it works.

      As to your request about my Title 31 analysis as applied to your
      case, I will see if can find time to look at it and respond in detail.
      Are you prepared to plead guilty if I show you what you did that
      was illegal, whether or not you agree with my analysis? Will my
      opinion on that matter be relevant.

      As to your cash transaction question, if you violated the rule 45
      times then 45 charges would appear to be appropriate to me.

      Back to your Tax Court deadline, Kent! Have you got any specific
      plans about what to do about that yet. Also, are you going to try
      and convince me, as I have repeatedly requested, why it is you,
      allegedly, were unaware of the status of your wife's Tax Court case?

      Sorry for the delay in responding.

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      Subject: The banker's letter and structuring rules!

      Kent,

      Let me expand a little on your banker problem before
      responding on the structuring issue.

      Your anonymous banker proposes to tell me how things
      are/were and promotes himself as if he is qualified and
      credible regarding his promotion of the alleged facts and
      law and should be given some consideration. Interesting
      how the letter does not appear to mention that he is a
      convicted felon and the charges for which he was convicted.

      Ad hominem is not fallacious when proposing that, in such
      situations, such witnesses' credibility may be reasonably
      doubted both as to the factual claims and legal analysis.

      Kent, you wrote in part, asking:

      > Can you please read the referenced
      > documents and the banker's letter
      > and show me specifically what I
      > did that was illegal?

      I don't like chasing rabbits, so you really need to get down
      to what you are getting at, with specifics, if you have a point
      you want to make. I don't like guessing at what you might
      want me to get out of such references.

      I like short, sweet, and to the point.

      In this case, however, I will give it a shot.

      The references, in part, follow my name below. This analysis
      is subject to a further review of your case as I might get the
      time and have the interest or some additional, specific, explicit,
      feedback from you.

      Your Question:

      > WHAT DID KENT HOVIND DO THAT WAS ILLEGAL?

      My Answer, from attached references:

      > Structured financial transactions to
      > evade financial reporting rules.
      >
      > Such structuring does not require a
      > transaction of more than $10,000.

      I claim no expertise in that area, so if there is some specific
      you are getting at, Kent, let me know.

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      I already KNOW what the law says and what

      The jury never saw the law I was accused of violating.

      The appeals court never looks at that either.

      They look at "did the jugde follow proceedure?"

      By charging 45 crimes instead of one (as scores fo
      other 'structuring' cases have been) it looks horrible
      to the jury.

      This is a common tactic (and illegal - overcharging)
      but normaly convinces the jury that he MUST have done
      SOMETHING wrong!

      No one else who has analysed the law and the indictment
      and the trial has said I am guilty.

      Please do show me specifically how withdrawing your
      own money from your own bank to pay legit bills in
      12 day ave. intervals violates the statute.

      If I did then anyone who takes $10/week out in cash
      every week will eventually be guilty of 100 counts of
      structuring and could face 500 years in prison. (5yrs/count).

      If 45 charges are appropriate then you are saying anyone
      who withdraws their own money in an amount less than
      $10,000 one time is guilty and should go to prison for
      5 years.

      Is that what you think?
      One topic at a time-remember? :)

      Subject: Step by Step!

      Kent,

      I can handle more than one topic at a time, but we just
      need to keep them simple as we attempt to breeze through
      them and allow you to get the word out that you might want
      Peter to consider as he might be posting one or more columns
      to Forbes regarding your case and similar cases.

      Before going on to possible new matters, let's review some
      old matters and your latest messages, and see how they go.

      1.

      You haven't said what, if any, your current plans are regarding
      your January 30, 2013 U.S. Tax Court deadline.

      What current plans do you have regarding that matter?

      2.

      You haven't tried to convince me, as I have repeatedly asked,
      why it is you were unaware of Jo's U.S. Tax Court decision.

      How could you not have known about that recent decision?

      3.

      You wrote this morning, asking:

      > Do YOU (Robert Baty) think I was properly
      > charged (docs 334-338) and actually broke
      > that law?

      Yes!

      4.

      You wrote this morning:

      > No one else who has analysed the law and the
      > indictment and the trial has said I am guilty.

      If you have any specific references of lawyers and/or
      C.P.A.'s who have considered your case and have written
      opinions on the matter, I will be glad to consider them.
      I think this would be also something that Peter could use.

      He's a CPA.
      I'm not a lawyer or a CPA.

      I am not talking about references and analysis from folks
      like Barringer, anonymous bankers, Paul Hansen, and Glenn Stoll.

      But, I will be glad to consider your references if you have them.

      5.

      > If 45 charges are appropriate then you are

      Your claim about what I am saying is not correct.
      No, that is not what I am saying.

      The crime of structuring has to do with your effort to
      evade the reporting requirements of financial institutions.

      In part, as I understand the application of the law,
      it has to do with intent; a frame of mind.

      The jury doesn't read minds, but is called upon to look
      at the evidence in a case and make their judgment as
      to whether or not you were evading the reporting rules.

      I think we know what the jury decided.

      They thought your case was so egregious that you got
      the enhanced 10 year sentence.

      6.

      KENT, YOU DID NOT PUT ON A DEFENSE IN YOUR CRIMINAL CASE!

      7.

      KENT, YOU'VE HAD YEARS TO PROSECUTE YOUR APPEALS AND HAVE DONE SO!

      8.

      You are welcome to keep trying to change a result in your
      criminal case, and it is unlikely that my casual opinions about
      the case are going to change the outcome. I am open to
      considering a change in my opinion, and you are welcome to
      try. Just try to keep it short and simple and specific.

      9.

      I get that you don't seem to think you were properly charged
      as to the law violated and that one violation of the misapplied
      law should have been all that was allowed.

      10.

      Now, are there other matters to consider, and do I start getting
      answers to my questions?

      We can continue to explore further your criminal case details if
      you wish.

      I am here as the go-between in an effort to facilitate your effort
      to inform and enlighten Peter J. Reilly as to your case(s) and possibly
      publish one or more columns explaining your situation and opining thereon.

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty

      One more thot on the same topic.

      If structuring requires TWO or more transactions of
      less than $10,000 on the same day (and it does) that
      total MORE than $10,000 how can there be 45 counts
      in my indictment?

      The MAX would be 22 counts.

      The indictment is fatally flawed therefore the court
      lack jurisdiction to even hear the case.

      The indictment must still be dismissed and the case
      overturned.

      Are you seeking for truth or seeking to get me to
      confess to a crime I (and scores of others) do not
      think I committed?

      What is your motive in all this?

      You asked if I would admit I was guilty...

      Will YOU admit I was NOT guilty if that is where the
      evidence leads?

      History records hundreds of thousands of WRONG decisions
      that hurt others badly you know.

      Have a great day! :)

      Kent,

      I'll try to briefly respond to your latest:

      You wrote:

      > If structuring requires TWO or more
      > transactions of less than $10,000 on
      > the same day (and it does)...

      I don't think it does.

      You wrote:

      I doubt it, but that is a matter for you to take up on
      appeal. I trust the legal system to deal with such
      issues and not "laymen", but I'm open to considering
      the matter further if you can keep it simple.

      You wrote:

      > The indictment must still be dismissed
      > and the case overturned.

      I don't think so, but we'll see how that position works out for you.

      You wrote:

      > Are you seeking for truth or seeking to
      > get me to confess to a crime I (and scores
      > of others) do not think I committed?

      I will follow the search for the truth wherever it may lead us,
      with or without any confessions or change of minds.

      You wrote:

      > What is your motive in all this?

      To act as the go-between as to you and Peter, as I explained
      in my last message. Otherwise, you and your cases have been
      of interest to me for years and so I am personally interested in
      this further personal dialogue.

      Peter is rather busy, and I will forward to you any specific
      commentary he may have, and his questions whenever he may
      be able to present them for you.

      You wrote:

      > Will YOU admit I was NOT guilty if
      > that is where the evidence leads?

      The judicial process provides for a determination of guilt "in the
      eyes of the law", but you are welcome to my opinion.

      For all I know, you were guilty.

      Now, what about those questions I have been asking?

      Sincerely,
      Robert Baty
