9.  RESOURCES TO REBUT PRIVATE SECTOR DECEPTION AND FALSE PROPAGANDA

Be diligent to [investigate and expose the truth for yourself and thereby] present yourself [and the public servants who are your fiduciaries and stewards under the Constitution] approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word [and the deeds] of truth.  But shun profane babblings [government propaganda, tyranny, and usurpation] for they will increase to more ungodliness.  And their message [and their harmful affects] will spread like cancer [to destroy our society and great Republic].” 
[2 Tim. 2:15-17, Bible, NKJV]

The following subsections contain rebuttals to common private sector deception and false propaganda about taxation and jurisdiction.  We have carefully reviewed every such piece of propaganda we can find and have not been able to find anything that successfully rebuts any of our rebuttals with evidence.  If you locate anything that might contradict or discredit our rebuttals, please feel encouraged to click here and post your errata in forum 9.4 after signing up to become a member, which is FREE.

9.1.  POLICY DOCUMENT:  CORRUPTION WITHIN MODERN CHRISTIANITY

Modern Christian churches, pastors, and parishoners are teaching doctrine that clearly conflicts with the revealed word of God in the Holy Bible.  This deception causes idolatry towards government and destroys any possibility that Christians will assert their sovereignty in the political or legal realm.  It is very important that Christians be informed about this deception and have the tools to fight it and fix it.  You can use this document to educate yourself, your loved ones, and members of your church about the deception.  Below is the link to the article from our Forms page.

9.3  YOU MIGHT BE A LIBERAL IF...

Liberal beliefs contradict themselves and therefore, cannot be truthful.  This video demonstrates exactly why the cognitive dissonance and irrationality of liberals will lead to their own destruction and why you shouldn't believe anything they say.

9.4.  WHY THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT IS NOT A THREAT TO YOUR FREEDOM

The most prevalent misunderstandings and confusion in the freedom community center on the subject of citizenship.  Most freedom researchers falsely believe that:

  1. The Fourteenth Amendment is a threat to their freedom.
  2. The Fourteenth Amendment is the source of the national government's legislative jurisdiction over them.
  3. They either are not or do not want to be Fourteenth Amendment "citizens of the United States".

This document examines and rebuts the above FALSE beliefs in detail and points you at all the resources needed to research the subject further on this website.

9.5.  POLICY DOCUMENT: PROBLEMS WITH ATHEISTIC ANARCHISM

A popular approach to freedom, and especially among Libertarians, is to advocate atheistic anarchism. Their rhetoric SOUNDS a lot like ours but has fundamental logical fallacies that make it completely impractical as a system of governance. This document examines and rebuts some of the cognitive dissonance and logical fallacies found in their philosophy and tries to redirect their efforts in a more positive and constructive direction that can effect meaningful, lasting, unified consensus and change.

9.6.  POLICY DOCUMENT: PETE HENDRICKSON'S "TRADE OR BUSINESS" APPROACH

We caution our readers of the following differences of opinion that we have with Pete Hendrickson's approach:

  1. Pete Hendrickson's approach to getting refunds of earnings unlawfully withheld against his wishes and without a VOLUNTARY W-4 is to submit IRS form 1040.  We disagree with this approach, and instead use the 1040NR for such a case IF YOU ARE A PUBLIC OFFICER and a substitute or modified form if you are not. We do this so that we are not mistaken by the courts and the IRS as a statutory "person", "U.S. citizen", or "resident" who has a PDF domicile on federal territory or is representing a public office that has such civil domicile.
  2. Several have contacted Pete about this almost singular defect in his approach.  Some have pointed to the PDF IRS Document 7130, which says that IRS form 1040 is only for "U.S. citizens and residents".  They have also pointed out to him the definition of "individual" which appears at the top of IRS form 1040 found in 26 CFR 1.1441-1(c )(3), which is defined as an "alien" or "nonresident alien".  Pete agrees that those domiciled in states of the Union are all "PDF  non-resident non-persons".  However, he isn't willing to translate this understanding of the I.R.C. into practice by filing the correct type or return form when he asks for a refund, and we believe this is a grave mistake. 
  3. Anyone who starts out as a "nonresident alien" and who files an IRS form 1040 is making an "election" to be treated as a "U.S. person" and a "resident alien" pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 6013(g) and (h) and 26 U.S.C. 7701(b)(4)(B).  This is a very dangerous way to jeopardize your sovereignty and waive sovereign immunity pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1603(b)(3). PDF Click here and read sections 11 and 15.1 through 15.6 for details on how this "election" works.
  4. Pete suggests attaching IRS form 4852 to correct false W-2 forms.  However, those filing IRS Form 1040NR cannot use this form.  The top of the Form 4852 says “Attach to form 1040, 1040A, 1040-EZ, or 1040X.”   Form 1040NR is not included in the list, so obviously, this is a “resident alien” form available only to those with a domicile on federal territory and therefore whom the government has jurisdiction over to penalize.  We therefore suggest either using form W-2C or making your own substitute form in the following article on our website:
    Correcting Erroneous IRS Form W-2’s, Form #04.006
    http://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm
  5. We therefore strongly discourage our Members or readers from filing IRS form 1040's as Pete suggests.  The ONLY form they can file to get a refund and still remain members is either an PDF Amended IRS Form 1040NR, or our PDF Federal Nonresident Nonstatutory Claim for Return of Funds Unlawfully Paid to the Government, Form #15.001.  The reasoning behind this is exhaustively described in the following memorandum of law:
      Non-Resident Non-Person Position, Form #05.020
      http://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm

For details on the above, and for an official policy statement about our perspective towards Mr. Hendrickson's approach read the following:

PDF Policy Document: Pete Hendrickson's "Trade or Business" Approach, Form #08.003

On a more positive note, we admire Pete Hendrickson's research for the most part, with the singular exception above, as well as his brave efforts to inform the American public on his Lost Horizons website of the deliberate misapplication of the Internal Revenue Code by private employers and the government.  Of all the freedom researchers we know of, he has come closer to the truth about the income tax than anyone else to date, except possibly us, of course.  We wouldn't have posted a link to his work here if he didn't have important or valuable information to offer our Members.
