The Income Tax Trial of the Century


On Tuesday, October 20th, Pete Hendrickson, author of the bestselling book "Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America" will be tried at the Theodore Levin Courthouse before Judge Gerald Rosen and a Detroit, Michigan jury. Word of the trial has not reached most Americans -- even those who are aware of the so-called fraud of "income" tax.

The charge against Pete is that he didn't believe what he wrote on his tax returns filed between 2002 and 2007. [ Yes, you read it correctly, Pete is charged with NOT BELIEVING WHAT HE WROTE ON HIS RETURNS! ] This is a matter of philosophy -- did he or didn't he? If you or I were asked to answer that question, we would consider the decade Pete has spent researching the 6-plus million words of Internal Revenue Code and statutory law, the ground-breaking book he published about his findings, and the enormous website he has built and maintains, at which one can view the results of hundreds of individual filings made by those who have read Pete's book. What are these results? A total of $10.2 million to date in collective "victories" -- including complete annual refunds of wage withholdings and dismissals of 1099s. (And these are only the victories of those who have reported their successes back to Pete.)

The case against Pete was brought in November 2008 -- a last-ditch massive PR effort on the part of the IRS to blacken Pete's book and frighten people off from reading it. If the writer himself is on trial ... Yet the proof in the pudding is that the whole time Pete has been preparing his defense, the IRS has continued to refund filers applying the liberating truth they are learning from Cracking the Code.

Why is the income-tax community not up in arms about this trial? Why do we not even know about it? Possibly because the "real deal" in any of the issues whirling around us is given the least attention -- by deliberate design.

In my own journey down the road of alternative thinking, I have come to learn (and it only dawned on me very recently) that a certain kind of paradigm is systematically constructed around all of our favorite "conspiracy" topics. I will use the familiar terms thesis, antithesis and synthesis. Pick a topic -- vaccines, for instance. Thesis is what most people believe: "Vaccines are good for you. They protect your health and prevent disease. Vaccinate your child and get your flu shot now." Antithesis is what most conspiracy theorists or mainline skeptics believe, and it is also predominantly false. The antithesis for vaccines is: "Vaccines will kill you! They give you the disease they're supposed to protect against. The swine flu shot will give you swine flu!" The synthesis that nearly everyone misses is quite different -- and the reason no one gets to it is because of all the noise around the other stuff. Synthesis: "Vaccines are likely to cause immune dysfunction and impair your general health. They create chronic ailments, neurological disorders ranging from learning disabilities to full-blown autism, as well as auto-immune disorders. Their net effect is limited functionality."

Look at any subject people are exposing and you will find this spectrum. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis. The beauty of peddling a false antithesis is that the day will come when its believers will be wrong. And the more dis-believers you can draw to the antithesis, the yet-more-people you can fool!

Income tax. Most Americans believe it's unavoidable -- if you make money, you have to pay the government a portion of your earnings. Thesis. It's the law. Antithesis: Income tax is unlawful -- it's unconstitutional! Just don't file, just don't pay! The synthesis is what Pete Hendrickson's research brings us: Income tax is lawful, it's constitutional. It's just a very narrow, benign tax that doesn't apply to the money most people bring in. It's a federal excise tax, not a direct tax -- payable only on money that is federally connected. Why do most people end up paying tax on their "income"? Because of a fraudulent nationwide reporting system, whereby Americans use forms intended only for federally connected payments to advise the IRS of amounts they have paid to each other. The W-2 and 1099 "information returns" subject those whose names appear on them to a tax on their "income," as this word is a LEGAL TERM applying to money that comes from a federal nexus.

Pete's research discloses ways that Americans themselves can rectify the reports made about them, and the IRS accepts these corrections. Thus those employing what Pete calls "Congress's own method" of restitution are consistently succeeding in obtaining a RETURN of their withheld earnings -- which is the intended meaning of the "1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return."

It's a beautiful, liberating discovery. The government expanded its "revenue" by imposing a broad income tax upon the people in the early 1940s -- even on those who did not qualify as "taxpayers." Why? We were at war and they needed the funds. They felt it was okay to borrow from our paychecks throughout the year, and we could turn around and ask for the withholdings back by April 15th of the next year. Small increments taken from us on a temporary basis, and then a "return" of our money if we did not qualify as a true "employee," earning "wages." (These, again, are specific legal terms! Read Cracking the Code to educate yourself.)

And for this gift to the American people, Pete Hendrickson is being put into the fire. He may be sentenced to a prison term if he is not able to convince the jury on the correctness and fairness of the law. The real law, the way it was originally and perfectly designed. Which design has been completely drowned out by the noise around the ill-defined thesis (we have to pay) and the equally ill-defined antithesis (we certainly do not).

I ask you to visit and to learn much, much more. Read Pete's newsletter here ( ... and this may be the time to buy Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America. Donate to Pete's enormous cost of legal defense, as he has had to hire the best and brightest to work with him. A victory in this trial could mean a turning point for you and every other American alive today.

Why didn't you know this was going on? Because it's Synthesis -- one of the gems kept hidden from us so we never really know what is at our disposal to help our deep, true, freedom-deserving selves.
