Someone just sent me a government terror propaganda piece, disguised as a "news
story," about Al Thompson and Joe Banister getting indicted. What I'm wondering is how
many of you will choose to hide, and abandon the truth, out of fear, and how many will
only try even HARDER to end this fraud. Again, if terrorism shuts you up, expect to get
MORE of it. If you don't believe me, try this:
"The blatant and far-reaching defrauding of honest taxpayers by these two individuals
warrants an aggressive federal prosecution. This case should serve as a stark reminder to
our citizens that caution should be heeded when approached by those advocating wild
theories as to why one does not have to obey federal tax laws," stated United States
I've never seen Banister suggest that people don't "have to obey federal tax laws," but
aside from that lie, notice the government's attitude: we'll hurt these two, so others won't
listen to them anymore. Lovely.
"Joe Banister, a former IRS agent, knew exactly what he was doing. Tax professionals
and employers who break the law will be held accountable," said IRS Commissioner
Mark W. Everson.
Remember when we sent Mr. Everson 1,200 letters, which he ignored? Obviously

lot of politicians say that Americans shouldn't tolerate terrorism. I agree. Trouble is, those
politicians are the BENEFICIARIES of the terrorism carried out on a daily basis by the
What do YOU intend to do about it? When someone like Banister puts his neck on the
chopping block to try to stop YOU from being defrauded, will you help him when he
The government is ratcheting up its terror campaign, trying to prosecute a bunch of
VOCAL people. (So much for the First Amendment.) The government might win some of
the criminal cases, but it will not win them all. And every loss they have in court will
further weaken this fraud. You can either hide, or stand and be counted. The people with
spines will end the fraud, while those without watch on.
