"Humble obedience to the Constitution by public servants is the paramount 'compelling state interest'."
[SEDM]

"A popular government without popular information [about GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION] or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to Farce, or a Tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance. and a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."
[James Madison; Letter from James Madison to W.T. Barry (Aug. 4, 1822), in 9 THE WRITINGS OF JAMES MADISON 103 (Gaillard Hunt ed., 1910)]

"...The constitutional rights of those spreading their religious beliefs through the spoken and printed word are not to be gauged by standards governing retailers or wholesalers of books. The right to use the press for expressing one's views is not to be measured by the protection afforded commercial handbills. It should be remembered that the pamphlets of Thomas Paine were not distributed free of charge. It is plain that a religious organization needs funds to remain a going concern. But an itinerant evangelist, however misguided or intolerant he may be, does not become a mere book agent by selling the Bible or religious tracts to help defray his expenses or to sustain him. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion are available to all, not merely to those who can pay their own way. . ."
[Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105 (1943)]

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, "where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?" And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” 
[George Washington in his Farewell Address]

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."
[Phil. 4:8, Bible, NKJV]

"But as for me and my house, WE WILL SERVE [ONLY] THE LORD!" 
[Josh. 24:15, Bible, NKJV]

"Only the educated are free."
[Epicetus, Discourses]

"...the greatest menace to freedom is an inert [passive, ignorant, and uneducated] people [who refuse, as jurists and voters and active citizens, to expose and punish evil in the government]" 
[Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)]

"The American people have always regarded education and acquisition of knowledge as matters of supreme importance which should be diligently promoted [in order to maintain and protect their liberty]. The Ordinance of 1787 declares: 'Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness [and liberty] of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.'"
[Meyer v. State of Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390 (1923)]

"And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws [of both God and man], and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work [of obedience to God] that they must do."
[Exodus 18:20, Bible, NKJV]

"My [God's] people are destroyed [and enslaved] for lack of knowledge [and the lack of education that produces it].”
[Hosea 4:6, Bible, NKJV]

"We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice [greed], ambition, revenge, or gallantry [debauchery], would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious [and a well educated and self-governing] people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
[John Adams, 2nd President]

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."
[George Orwell]

1.  What and Who Are We?

For a brief, abbreviated introduction to our ministry, see:

PDF Ministry Introduction, Form #12.014

SEDM exists as:

  1. A legal education and law enforcement group focusing on both PDF God's Laws and man's laws.
  2. A free public service
  3. A nonprofit, nondenominational Christian (religious) evangelical fellowship and ministry.
  4. A religious fellowship in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  5. A religious charity.
  6. A First Amendment association of activists (Members only) which seek a return to the rule of law in the United States.  We derive the resources we need for such reforms through the donations made to this website.
  7. A whistleblowing group focused on researching, exposing, publicizing, and punishing government deception and corruption wherever it may be found, and especially in regards to matters relating to law, commerce, and taxation.  This is a fundamental requirement of the Bible, which says that:

    7.1  "Fearing the Lord" is the essence of our faith.  See Deut. 6:13, 24; Deut. 10:20

    7.2  To "fear the Lord" is to "hate evil".  See Prov. 8:13.

    7.3  Hating evil is the way we love and protect our neighbor, in fulfillment of the last six commandments of the ten commandments.

    7.4  Whistleblowing relating to evil in the government is therefore a protected First Amendment religious practice.  Click here (OFFSITE LINK) for details. 
    [NOTE:  We don't agree that America is a democracy as the Supreme Court indicates below, but we agree that a free press is important.  It INSTEAD is a REPUBLIC.  See section 4.5 of this link for the reasons why.]

    "In the First Amendment, the Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have to fulfill its essential role in our democracy. The press [and this religious ministry] was to serve the governed, not the governors. The Government's power to censor the press was abolished so that the press would remain forever free to censure the Government. The press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell. In my view, far from deserving condemnation for their courageous reporting, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other newspapers should be commended for serving the purpose that the Founding Fathers saw so clearly. In revealing the workings of government that led to the Vietnam war, the newspapers nobly did precisely that which the Founders hoped and trusted they would do."
    [New York Times Co. v. United States, 403 U.S. 713 (1970)]

We view "evil" as simply the absence of truth.  We seek to displace and eliminate evil by enlightening the world with Truth, which God is the embodiment of.

"Evil is simply the absence of truth."
[M. Scott Peck;The Road Less Traveled]

"Sanctify them by Your truth. Your [God's] word is truth."
[John 17:17, Bible, NKJV]

"The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever."
[Psalm 119:160, Bible, NKJV]

"Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And PDF Your law is truth."
[Psalm 119:142, Bible, NKJV]

Our ministry doesn't "make" people sovereign.  They were born that way.  Having rights and equality and having those rights and equality respected, in fact, is what makes them "sovereign":

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator [not by the government or us or a judge, but by their CREATOR] with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure [not GRANT or CREATE] these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?"
[Thomas Jefferson:Jefferson, Thomas" : Notes on Virginia Q.XVIII, 1782. ME 2:227 ]

We are an educational ministry that helps people fully realize and defend the sovereignty that God and only God gave them.  We do this by educating them about all the devious ways they are tricked out of their sovereignty and how to undo the damage they have done to that status usually through their own uninformed actions or omissions.

We are not "tax protesters", "tax defiers", or "tax deniers".  As a matter of fact, those who have such motivations are discouraged from becoming Members of our ministry and if they become members are "Members in Bad Standing". We do not challenge the lawfulness or Constitutionality of any part of the Internal Revenue Code or PDF any state revenue code and we believe that these codes are completely Constitutional as written and when correctly applied to federal territory, PDF domiciliaries, and PDF franchises ONLY pursuant to Article 4, Section 3, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution.  HOWEVER, we also believe that the way they are willfully MISREPRESENTED to the American public, and the way they are MALADMINISTERED by the IRS, state revenue agencies, and the courts are willfully and maliciously deceptive and in many cases grossly illegal and injurious.  If these revenue codes were truthfully represented and faithfully administered completely consistent with what they say, and more importantly their legislative intent and the Constitution, we believe that there would be almost NO "taxpayers".  The only reason there are "taxpayers" is because most Americans have been maliciously and deliberately deceived by public servants about their true nature and PDF the very limited audience of people who are their only proper subject.  Our enemy is not the government, the IRS, or even taxes, but instead is all the following PDF techniques for introducing collectivism into an otherwise free society:

  1. Legal ignorance on the part of Americans that allows public servants to abuse their authority and violate the law.   We have met the enemy, and it is our own ignorance of the law.

    “One who turns his ear from hearing the law [PDF God's law or man's law], even his prayer is an abomination.”
    [Prov. 28:9, Bible, NKJV]


    "But this crowd that does not know [and quote and follow and use] the law is accursed.”
    [John 7:49, Bible, NKJV]


    "Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek PDF Your statutes."
    [Psalm 119:155, Bible, NKJV]


    "Every man is supposed to know the law. A party who makes a contract [or enters into a franchise, which is also a contract] with an officer [of the government] without having it reduced to writing is knowingly accessory to a violation of duty on his part. Such a party aids in the violation of the law."
    [Clark v. United States, 95 U.S. 539 (1877)]

  2. The PDF abuse of presumption to injure the rights of sovereign Americans, in violation of due process of law and God's law found in Numbers 15:30.  Much of this presumption is compelled by the government by willfully dumbing-down the average American about legal subjects in the public (government) schools.  This makes the legal profession into essentially a "priesthood" and a pagan "religion" that the average American blindly worships and obeys, without ever questioning authority.  It is a supreme injustice to proceed against a person without every conclusion being based ONLY on fact and not presumption, opinion, or belief. PDF Click here for a detailed article on this scam and sin.

    "But the person who does anything presumptuously, whether he is native-born or a stranger, that one brings reproach on the LORD, and he shall be cut off from among his people."
    [Numbers 15:30, Bible, NKJV]


    "Due Process: [. . .] If any question of fact or liability be conclusively be presumed [rather than proven with evidence] against him, this is not due process of law [in fact, it is the OPPOSITE of due process]."
    [Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 500]


    (1) [8:4993] Conclusive presumptions affecting protected interests:  A conclusive presumption may be defeated where its application would impair a party's constitutionally-protected liberty or property interests.  In such cases, conclusive presumptions have been held to violate a party's due process and equal protection rights.  [Vlandis v. Kline (1973) 412 U.S. 441, 449, 93 S.Ct 2230, 2235; Cleveland Bed. of Ed. v. LaFleur (1974) 414 US 632, 639-640, 94 S.Ct. 1208, 1215-presumption under Illinois law that unmarried fathers are unfit violates process]
    [PDF Rutter Group Practice Guide-Federal Civil Trials and Evidence, paragraph 8:4993, page 8K-34]

  3. Public servants deceiving the public by portraying "Private Law" as "Public Law".  PDF Click here for an article on this subject.
  4. Public servants refusing to acknowledge the requirement for consent in all human interactions. PDF Click here for an article on this subject.
  5. Willful omissions from government websites and publications that keep the public from hearing the whole truth.   The problem is not what these sources say, but what they DON'T say.  The Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK) contains over 2,000 pages of what the GOVERNMENT regards as facts that neither the IRS nor any one in government is willing to reveal to you because it would destroy the gravy train of plunder that pays their bloated salaries and fat retirement in criminal violation of 18 U.S.C. 208.
  6. The abuse of "words of art" to deceive the people in both government publications and the law itself.   See:
    6.1  Sovereignty Forms and Instructions Online, Form #10.004, Cites by Topic (OFFSITE LINK) for examples.
    6.2  PDF Meaning of the Words "includes" and "including", Form #05.014-explains games to unlawfully expand legal definitions 
    6.3  Citizenship Status v. Tax Status, Form #10.011 -shows how STATUTORY v. CONSTITUTIONAL contexts and GEOGRAPHICAL v. LEGAL contexts are confused to usurp jurisdiction.
    6.4  PDF Rules of Presumption and Statutory Interpretation, Litigation Tool #01.006 -prevents abuse of words of art during litigation.
  7. The lack of "equal protection of the law" in courts of justice relating to the statements and actions of public servants, whereby the IRS doesn't have to assume responsibility for its statements and actions, and yet persons who fill out tax forms can be thrown in jail and prosecuted for fraud if they emulate the IRS by being just as careless.  This also includes "selective enforcement", where the DOJ positively refuses to prosecute submitters of PDF false information returns but spends a disproportionate share of its resources prosecuting false income tax returns.  They do this because they are more interested in STEALING your money than in justice.  See:
    7.1  Federal Courts and IRS' Own IRM Say NOT RESPONSIBLE for its actions or its words or following its own internal procedures (OFFSITE LINK)
    7.2  PDF Requirement for Equal Protection and Equal Treatment, Form #05.033
    7.3  PDF Government Establishment of Religion, Form #05.038 -how government establishes itself as a pagan deity and a religion by using franchises to systematically destroy the separation of powers and the requirement for equal protection
  8. Abuses of franchises that undermine the protection of private rights by the government and the courts:

    8.1  Offering or enforcing NATIONAL franchises within states of the Union or outside of the federal territory and federal domiciliaries that they are limited to.  This results in a destruction of the PDF separation of powers.

    8.2  Enforcing franchises, such as a "PDF trade or business" without requiring explicit written consent in some form, such as the issuance and voluntary signing of an application for a license.  PDF Click here for details.

    8.3. Forcing non-franchisees into franchise courts against their consent.  This is a violation of the Fifth Amendment takings clause and the prohibition against eminent domain.

    8.4  Refusing to satisfy the burden of proof upon government opponents in a franchise court that the owner of the property subject to the dispute VOLUNTARILY donated it to a public use, public purpose, and public office.  In other words, that all property is PRIVATE until it is proven on the record with evidence that the owner EXPRESSLY AND VOLUNTARILY DONATED it to PUBLIC use and thereby made it subject to government jurisdiction.

    8.5  Abusing sovereign immunity to protect franchise administrators such as the IRS from illegal enforcement of the franchise against non-franchisees.  All franchises are PRIVATE rather than GOVERNMENTAL in nature and governments who offer them drop down to the level or ordinary persons when they offer them.

    8.6  Refusing to provide a way to quit franchises or hiding forms for doing so.

    8.7  PRESUMING or pretending like there is no such thing as a non-franchisee or non-taxpayer or that EVERYONE is a statutory "taxpayer".  This compels people to contract with the government and interferes with their First Amendment right to legally and politically associate.  See Your Exclusive Right to Declare or Establish Your Civil Status, Form #13.008.

    8.8  Attorney licensing, which destroys the integrity of the legal profession in its role as a check and balance when the government or especially the judiciary becomes corrupt as it is now.

    8.9  Abuse of the federal income tax system, which is a franchise and an excise, to bribe states of the Union to give up their sovereignty, act like federal "States" and territories, and accept what amounts to federal bribes to disrespect the rights or those under their care and protection.  PDF Click here for details.

    See the following for details on the above abuses: Government Instituted Slavery Using Franchises, Form #05.030.

  9. Efforts to destroy the separation of powers that is the main protection for our liberties.  This results in abuses of the Court system for political, rather than legal, purposes (politicization of the courts).  All of the federal courts we have now are Article IV, territorial courts that are part of the Executive, rather than Judicial Branch of the de facto government.  As such, there is no separation of powers and nothing but tyranny can result.  See the following for proof of this destruction:

    9.1 PDF Government Conspiracy to Destroy the Separation of Powers, Form #05.023-  shows how lying, thieving public servants have systematically destroyed the separation of powers since the founding of this country

    9.2  What Happened to Justice?, Form #06.012-book which proves that we have no Judicial Branch within the federal government, and that all the existing federal courts are acting in an Article IV territorial capacity as part of the Executive, rather than Judicial, branch of the government.

    9.3  How Scoundrels Corrupted our Republican Form of Government (OFFSITE LINK)-brief overview of how the separation of powers has been systematically destroyed

  10. The abuse of the government's power to tax in order to transfer wealth between private individuals, which makes the government into a thief and a Robinhood.  This includes:
    10.1  Enforcing the tax laws against other than "public officers" of the government.  PDF Click here for details.

    10.2  Offering government "benefits" of any kind to anyone who does not ALREADY work for the government.  PDF Click here for details.

  11. Corruption of our monetary system that allows the government to:

    11.1  Counterfeit while denying to all others the right, thus creating an unconstitutional "Title of Nobility" for itself and making itself into a pagan deity, and denying the equal protection to all that is the foundation of the Constitution.

    11.2  STEAL from the American people by diluting the value of money already into circulation.

    11.3  Exercise undue control over banks and financial institutions that causes them to effectively become federal employment recruiters for the federal government by compelling use of government identifying numbers for those pursuing accounts or loans.

    PDF Click here for details on the above SCAMS.
  12. Creating, perpetuating, condoning, or in any way protecting conflicts of financial interest within the government that cause the self-interest to undermine the requirements of the law, EQUALITY, or the protection of exclusively PRIVATE rights by:
    12.1 Making judges "taxpayers".
    12.2 Making jurists or voters into "benefit" recipients, franchisees, and/or public officers.
    12.3 Allowing judges to act in a POLITICAL mode within any franchise court in the Executive rather than Judicial Branch. This also violates the separation of powers.
    12.4 Turning police officers into revenue collectors who enforce malum-prohibitum offenses that result in revenue to the state.
    12.5 Allowing any judicial officer or witness to receive any kind of financial reward for essentially compelling someone to assume any civil status under any civil franchise, including the income tax.
    12.6 Allowing judges to act BOTH as an Article III judge AND an Article IV judge at the same time.
    12.7 Allowing PRIVATE citizens to appear before a franchise judge with a financial conflict of interest.
    12.8 Making ordinary citizens ALSO into public officers in any context OTHER than as a jurist or voter. This causes income taxes to become poll taxes and disenfranchises all those who insist on remaining private.
    12.9 Constitutional states surrendering their sovereignty and agreeing to act essentially as federal territories or federal corporations in exchange for participation in national franchises such as Social Security, Medicare, etc.
    12.10 Governments going into debt and thereby becoming financial slaves to banks or bank cartels. This includes a debt based fiat currency system such as the federal reserve.
  13. Active interference with common law remedies for the protection of PRIVATE rights from abuse by government actors.  Governments are established exclusively to protect PRIVATE rights and PRIVATE property.  Any attempt to undermine such rights without the express written consent of the owner in each case is not only NOT a classical "government" function, but is an ANTI-government function that amounts to a MAFIA "protection racket".  This includes but is not limited to:

    13.1  Refusing to recognize or protect PRIVATE property or PRIVATE rights, the essence of which is the RIGHT TO EXCLUDE anyone and everyone from using or benefitting from the use of the property.

    13.2  PRESUMING that "a government OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and FOR THE PEOPLE" is a government in which everyone is a public officer.

    13.3  Refusing to recognize or allow constitutional remedies and instead substituting STATUTORY remedies available only to public officers.

    13.4  Interfering with introduction of evidence that the court or forum is ONLY allowed to hear disputes involving public officers in the government.

    13.5  PRESUMING or ASSUMING that the ownership of the property subject to dispute is QUALIFIED rather than ABSOLUTE and that the party the ownership is shared with is the government.

    13.6  Allowing government "benefit" recipients to be decision makers in cases involving PRIVATE rights.  This is a denial of a republican form of government, which is founded on impartial decision makers.  See Sinking Fund Cases, 99 U.S. 700 (1878).

    13.7   Interfering with or sanctioning litigants who insist on discussing the laws that have been violated in the courtroom or prohibiting jurists from reading the laws in question or accessing the law library in the courthouse while serving as jurists.  This transforms a society of law into a society of men and allows the judge to substitute HIS will in place of what the law expressly requires.

    13.8  Illegally and unconstitutionally invoking the Declaratory Judgments Act or the Anti-Injunction Act as an excuse to NOT protect PRIVATE rights from government interference in the case of EXCLUSIVELY PRIVATE people who are NOT statutory "taxpayers".  See Flawed Tax Arguments to Avoid, Form #08.004, Sections 6.10 and 6.11.

    13.9  Interfering with ways to change or correct your citizenship or statutory status in government records.  That "status" is the "res" to which all franchise rights attach, usually ILLEGALLY.

For an instructional video that describes techniques of government deception and propaganda that accomplish all the above malicious abuses, see:

Flash Foundations of Freedom, Video 4: Willful Government Deception and Propaganda, Form #12.021

The link below succinctly summarizes our view of government and its proper relationship to our religious faith as Christians.

PDF Delegation of Authority Order from God to Christians, Form #13.007

Our goal is to worship and serve our God as He reveals Himself through the Holy Spirit and the Holy Scripture.  The essence of God is "love", and love is biblically defined as OBEDIENCE to God's laws. Therefore the essence of "worship" and "religion" itself is obedience to God's laws. The foundation of what it means to be a Christian, in fact, is a person who regards the Bible as a law book that has the "force of law" in their case.  Hence, we believe that the best way we can worship God is by obeying PDF His Laws and advocating and defending His sovereignty and the jurisdiction of His Laws over the affairs of men. Our Lord said on this subject:

"Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven."
[Jesus in Matt. 7:21, Bible, NKJV]


"But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?"
[Luke 6:46, Bible, NKJV]


"My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
[Luke 8:21, Bible, NKJV]


"He who has [understands and learns] My commandments [laws in the Bible (OFFSITE LINK)] and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."
[John 14:21, Bible, NKJV]


"And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love [obedience to God's Laws] abides in [and is a FIDUCIARY of] God, and God in him."
[1 John 4:16, Bible, NKJV]


"Now by this we know that we know Him [God], if we keep His commandments. He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him [His fiduciaries].  He who says he abides in Him [as a fiduciary] ought himself also to walk just as He [Jesus] walked." 
[1 John 2:3-6, Bible, NKJV]


And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth [SOVEREIGN!]:
 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
 The LORD shall establish thee an holy [sanctified] people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath [SOVEREIGN!]; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other [government/political] gods to serve them.
[Deut. 28:1-14, Bible, NKJV]

We want to be neither "legalistic" nor "pious", but at the same time we want to be God's "defense counsel", His "Attorney General", His "Department of Justice", His "Department of State", and His "Ambassador" on earth just as Jesus was, and we believe that doing so is the only way to achieve true sovereignty. In that sense:

  1. We are fiduciaries of God, who is a "nontaxpayer" (OFFSITE LINK), and therefore we are "nontaxpayers".  Our legal status takes on the character of the sovereign who we represent.  Therefore, we become "foreign diplomats" (OFFSITE LINK).

    "For God is the King of all the earth.  Sing praises with understanding."
    [Psalm 47:7, Bible, NKJV]

    "For the LORD is our Judge, the LORD is our Lawgiver, the LORD is our King; He will save [and protect] us."
    [Isaiah 33:22, Bible, NKJV]

  2. The laws which apply to all civil litigation relating to us are from the domicile of the Heavenly sovereign we represent, which are the Holy Bible pursuant to:

    2.1  God's Laws found in the memorandum of law below:
          PDF Laws of the Bible, Form #13.001

    2.2  Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 17(b)

    2.3  Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 44.1
  3. Our "domicile" is the Kingdom of God on Earth, and not within the jurisdiction of any man-made government.  We can have a domicile on earth and yet not be in the jurisdiction of any government because the Bible says that God, and not man, owns the WHOLE earth and all of Creation.  We are therefore "transient foreigners" and "stateless persons" in respect to every man-made government on earth.  Click here for details.
  4. We are PDF "Nonresidents", statutory "non-resident non-persons (OFFSITE LINK) in respect to the national government.  The reason this must be so is that statutory "citizens of the United States" (who are all born in and resident within exclusive federal jurisdiction under 8 U.S.C. §1401) may not be classified as an instrumentality of a foreign state under 28 U.S.C. §§1332(c) and (d) and 28 U.S.C. §1603(b).
  5. We are not and cannot be "residents" of any earthly jurisdiction without having a conflict of interest and violating the first four Commandments of the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20.  Heaven is our exclusive legal "domicile", and our "permanent place of abode", and the source of ALL of our permanent protection and security.  We cannot and should not rely upon man's vain earthly laws as an idolatrous substitute for Gods sovereign laws found in the Bible.  Instead, only God's laws and the Common law, which is derived from God's law, are suitable protection for our God-given rights.

    “For I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying ‘The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.’  So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer.” 
    [Ezra 8:21-22, Bible, NKJV]

  6. We are Princes (sons and daughters) of the only true King and Sovereign of this world, who is God.

    "You [Jesus] are worthy to take the scroll,
    And to open its seals;
    For You were slain,
    And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
    Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
    And have made us kings and priests to our God;
    And we shall reign on the earth.

    [Rev. 5:9-10, Bible, NKJV]


    And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings [governments] of the earth [lawfully] take customs or taxes, from their sons [citizens and subjects] or from strangers [statutory "aliens", which are synonymous with "residents" in the tax code, and exclude "citizens"]?”

    Peter said to Him, "From strangers [statutory "aliens"/"residents" ONLY. See 26 C.F.R.  1.1-1(a)(2)(ii) and 26 C.F.R. 1.1441-1(c )(3)]."

    Jesus said to him, "Then the sons [of the King, Constitutional but not statutory "citizens" of the Republic, who are all sovereign PDF"nationals" and "nonresidents"] are free [sovereign over their own person and labor.  e.g. SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY].
    [Matt. 17:24-27, Bible, NKJV]

  7. We are "Foreign Ambassadors", "public officers", and "Ministers of a Foreign State" called the Kingdom of Heaven.  We are exempt from taxation by any other foreign government, including the U.S. government, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 892(a)(1) who are obligated to stop withholding using IRS form W-8EXP, which specifically exempts foreign government officials from taxation.  The U.S. Supreme Court said in U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark below that "ministers of a foreign state" may not be statutory "citizens of the United States".

    "For our citizenship is in heaven [and not earth], from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ"
    [Philippians 3:20, Bible, NKJV]

    "I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments [laws] from me." 
    [Psalm 119:19, Bible, NKJV]

    I have become a stranger to my brothers, and an alien to my mother's children; because zeal for Your [God's] house has eaten me up, and the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.”
    [Psalm 69:8-9, Bible, NKJV]

    "And Mr. Justice Miller, delivering the opinion of the court [legislating from the bench, in this case], in analyzing the first clause [of the Fourteenth Amendment], observed that “the phrase ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’ was intended to exclude from its operation children of ministers, consuls, and citizens or subjects of foreign states, born within the United States."
    [U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 18 S.Ct. 456; 42 L.Ed. 890 (1898)]

  8. Our dwelling is a "Foreign Embassy".  Notice we didn't say "residence", because only "resident aliens" (OFFSITE LINK) can have a "residence".  Click here for more details on this SCAM.
  9. We are protected from federal government persecution by 18 U.S.C. 112 and the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976 (OFFSITE LINK).
  10. We are a "stateless person" within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. 1332(a) immune from the jurisdiction of the federal courts, which are all Article IV, legislative, territorial courts. We are "stateless" because we do not maintain a domicile within the "state" defined in 28 U.S.C. 1332(d), which is a federal territory and excludes states of the Union.
  11. We are not allowed under God's law to conduct "commerce" or "intercourse" with the government by sending to it our money or receiving benefits we did not earn.  Black's Law Dictionary defines "commerce" as "intercourse".  The Bible defines "the Beast" as the "kings of the earth"/political rulers in Rev. 19:19:

    “And I saw the beast, the kings [heathen political rulers and the unbelieving democratic majorities who control them] of the earth [controlled by Satan], and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him [God] who sat on the horse and against His army.” 
    [ Revelation 19:19, Bible, NKJV]

    This is consistent with the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act found in 28 U.S.C. 1605(a)(2), which says that those who conduct "commerce" with the "United States" federal corporation within its legislative jurisdiction thereby surrender their sovereignty.  Click here for details.

Our Lord agreed with the above conclusions when he said:

"Adulterers and adulteresses!  Do you not know that friendship [and "citizenship"/domicile] with the world [or the governments of the world] is enmity with God?   Whoever therefore wants to be a friend [statutory "citizen" or "taxpayer" or "resident" or "inhabitant"] of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
[James 4:4, Bible, NKJV]

Click here to listen to a message from Pastor Mike Macintosh of Horizon Christian Fellowship given on 5/14/2006 confirming the above. In this message, he mentions that Christians are "aliens" when in fact, what we believe he really means is statutory "non-resident non-persons" and "foreigners".  It shouldn't surprise you to learn that within one year after we posted the recording of Macintosh, the IRS paid him a hostile visit to audit his entire church because they didn't like this message and wanted him to SHUT UP about the biblical relationship between government and the church.  Does that sound like "separation of church and state" to you? That's what we call "selective enforcement" for political reasons.  Essentially, its "terrorism" as legally defined because the aim is to produce fear.  Call him up and ask him yourself if you don't believe us. 

Even though he has a degree in law, Macintosh doesn't understand enough about law to know:

  1. The distinctions between STATUTORY and CONSTITUTIONAL "citizens".  PDF Click here and read sections 2 through 4 for details.
  2. That you can be a STATUTORY "non-resident non-person" in relation to a place by choosing a domicile AND residence OUTSIDE of that place.  PDF Click here for details.
  3. That the "resident" used in PDF franchise codes such as the vehicle code or the income tax code is a public office in the government, and NOT the person FILLING said office. PDF Click here for details.
  4. That you can be a statutory "nonresident alien" (under the I.R.C.), "foreigner" or "stranger" and a constitutional citizen at the same time.  An example of such an entity is a statutory non-citizen "national" per 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) occupying a public office, who is a statutory "nonresident alien" (under the I.R.C.), and a "foreigner" or "transient foreigner" in respect to every subject matter of federal legislation but NOT a statutory "person", or "individual" under federal law. PDF Click here for details on the status of being a "non-citizen national", a "foreigner", and yet neither a statutory "citizen", "alien", or "individual" in respect to a specific place.

Click here if you would like to learn more about why being "foreign" in relation to the PDF corporate state existing where you live is the only way you can be truly sovereign.

Any other status imputed or assumed by the government other than "foreign", "sovereign", and a "stranger" but not constitutional "alien" amounts to "compelled association" in violation of the First Amendment (see section 5 later for explanation).  We must surrender our sovereignty to Him and become His fiduciaries in order to be granted sovereignty over the government and our own affairs, because ALL SOVEREIGNTY ultimately comes from Him:

"Because you [Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived] have done this , and have not kept My covenant and My statutes [violated God's laws], which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom [and all your sovereignty] away from you and give it to your [public] servant.
[1 Kings 11:9-13, Bible, NKJV]

"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up [above your government]."
[James 4:10, Bible, NKJV]

“Those people who are not governed by GOD [and PDF His law, both figuratively and literally] will be ruled by tyrants.”
[William Penn (after which Pennsylvania was named)]

“Let us hear the conclusion of this whole matter: Fear [respect] God and keep His commandments [Laws found in the Bible], for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.
[Eccl. 12:13-14, Bible, NKJV]

See the following links illustrating the tyranny we are fighting as a ministry and as God's (Gideon's) army and fiduciaries.

The scriptures below indicate why we will prevail in this battle for justice and truth.

"No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield. [and our ONLY "protector"]
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You."
[Psalm 33:16-22, Bible, NKJV]

2.  Mission Statement

"In God We Trust.  All others from the legal and political professions we investigate."

"Beware lest anyone [and especially lawyers and politicians] cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men [including deceptive laws and political and media propaganda], according to the basic [carnal] principles of the world, and not according to Christ, for in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power."
[Col. 2:8-10, Bible, NKJV]

Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware [investigate] of the leaven [teachings, laws, doctrine, and publications] of the Pharisees [lawyers] and the Sadducees [political leaders].”  ….  How is it you do not understand that I did no speak to you concerning bread?—but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”  Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware [investigate and expose] of the leaven of bread, but of the [false or usurious] doctrine [laws, statutes, and publications] of the Pharisees [lawyers] and Sadducees [political leaders]. 
[Matt. 16:6,11,12, Bible, NKJV]

Be diligent to [investigate 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]

This ministry is an answer to a calling by the Lord to feed His sheep, His flock, and His family with knowledge and tools in order to help them protect themselves from criminals and thieves (wolves) everywhere:

“For whoever does the will of God [described in PDF God's Laws] is My brother and My sister and mother.” 
[Jesus, in Mark 3:35, NKJV]


So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter [a disciple and a fisherman], "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these [fish, or whatever other fixation you have in your life]?"
He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You."
He [Jesus] said to him, "Feed My lambs [family]."
He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah,do you love Me?"
He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You."
He [Jesus] said to him, "Tend My sheep."
He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?"
And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You."
Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep [FLOCK]. Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands [of faith], and another [God Himself] will gird you and carry you [with His ministry] where you do not wish." This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me."
[John 21:15-19, Bible, NKJV]

Below are some inspirational messages that describe the motivation behind our decision to accept God's sovereign calling and stewardship to build this ministry, which is His ministry, and His alone (please turn up the sound Priv):

Our regular form of worship shall consist in:

  1. Proclaiming God's love and salvation and the need for repentance to a lost world.

  2. Focusing our energies on the same problem areas within our society as Jesus did. Jesus said He came down to call sinners to repentance not the righteous, and the first place he visited to find sinners who needed His help was the tax collector's office. See the Bible.

    “For God gives wisdom and knowledge [and education] and joy to a man who is good in His sight; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting [unlawfully stealing, in this case]. . . .  This also is vanity and grasping for the wind.”
    [Ecc. 2:26, Bible, NKJV]

    ___________________________________________________________

    "As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew [Levi] sitting at the tax office [IRS]. And He [God] said to him [the tax collector], "Follow Me [Jesus]." So he arose and followed Him.

    Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and [other similar] sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees [lawyers] saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher [educator/SEDM] eat with [and teach and disciple] tax collectors and sinners [synonymous?]?"

    When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.  But go and learn what this means: "I desire mercy and not sacrifice.'    For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."
    [Matt 9:9-23, Bible, NKJV]

    ___________________________________________________________

    "Then tax collectors came to be baptized, and said to him [John the Baptist], 'Teacher [educator/SEDM], what shall we do [to be saved]?' And he said to them, 'Collect no more than what is appointed to you' [under the law]"
    [Luke 3:12-13, Bible, NKJV]

    ___________________________________________________________

    “And when all the people heard Him [Jesus], even the tax collectors [the most sinful of all people on earth?] justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John.”
    [Luke 7: 29, Bible, NKJV]

    ___________________________________________________________

    When they [Jesus and Apostle Peter] had come to Capernaum, those [collectors] who received the temple tax [the government has become the modern day socialist pagan god and Washington, D.C. is our civic "temple"] came to Peter and said, "Does your Teacher [Jesus] not pay the temple tax?

    He [Apostle Peter] said, “Yes.” [Jesus, our fearless leader as Christians, was a nontaxpayer]

    And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings [governments] of the earth [lawfully] take customs or taxes, from their sons [citizens and subjects] or from strangers ["aliens", which are synonymous with "residents" in the tax code, and exclude "citizens"]?”

    Peter said to Him, "From strangers ["aliens"/"residents" ONLY. See 26 C.F.R.  1.1-1(a)(2)(ii) and 26 C.F.R. 1.1441-1(c )(3)]."

    Jesus said to him, "Then the sons ["citizens" of the Republic, who are all sovereign PDF"non-citizen nationals" and "nonresidents" but not constitutional "aliens"] are free [sovereign over their own person and labor.  e.g. SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY].
    [Matt. 17:24-27, Bible, NKJV]

    ___________________________________________________________

    "Then the whole multitude of them [democracy rather than Republic] arose and led Him to Pilate [representative of Caesar/government]. And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King [a SOVEREIGN, which is what EVERYONE in America is who has the proper citizenship status!]." 
    [Luke 23:1-2, Bible, NKJV]

  3. Educating and evangelizing every "nontaxpayer" and sovereign American PDF Member who wants to learn about God's laws and how to apply them to our life in a practical way. We are here to "feed God's sheep" and "God's flock" with knowledge and wisdom whose only source is God and God's Holy Word.  We are God's shepherds and watchmen who are here to warn and educate the sheep about government wolves in their midst so that the sheep [our members] are not harmed.

    "It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that you may distinguish between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean, and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes [laws] which the LORD [God] has spoken to them by the hand of Moses." 
    [Lev. 10:9-11, Bible, NKJV]

    "The LORD is their [our] strength,
    And He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
    Save Your people,
    And bless Your inheritance;
    Shepherd them also,
    And bear them up forever."
    [Psalm 28:8-9, Bible, NKJV]

    "And I [God] will give you shepherds [SEDM] according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.
    [Jeremiah 3:15, Bible, NKJV]

    "I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them [with education and knowledge ONLY]; and they shall fear [their public dis-servants] no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking," says the LORD."
    [Jeremiah 23:4, Bible, NKJV]

    "Woe to the worthless shepherd, Who leaves the flock! A sword shall be against his arm And against his right eye; His arm shall completely wither, And his right eye shall be totally blinded." 
    [Zechariah 11:17, Bible, NKJV]

    "And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things [as we do on this website]." 
    [Mark 6:34, Bible, NKJV]

    "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep." 
    [Jesus in John 10:11, Bible, NKJV]

  4. Protecting and loving our neighbor by continually petitioning our public servants under the Petition Clause of the First Amendment, for redress of grievances [illegal and immoral acts] against our members.  All of the materials we produce ultimately have only this purpose, because many if not most of them are intended to be submitted to government to petition for a remedy of illegal and unconstitutional abuses by specific public servants.  If government had been doing this job to begin with by allowing evidence of its own wrongdoing to be admitted in legal proceedings and by allowing public servants who institute such egregious wrongdoing to be punished, then we wouldn't even need to exist as a ministry.  To stifle our ministry is to interfere with protected federal witnesses (witness tampering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1512) and to engage in anti-whistleblowing (OFFSITE LINK) activity, which is a felony.

  5. Encouraging a return to the traditional values that made this country great, including faith in God, personal responsibility (OFFSITE LINK), morality, the rule of law (not "statutes" or "codes", but REAL "law" based on the God's laws), a republican rather than democratic political system, limited and accountable government, and love for our neighbor.

  6. Maintaining and expanding the separation of powers within government to prevent tyranny and protect our freedoms and liberties.

  7. Encouraging the participation of Godly and moral and religious people in government and the legal profession. (See above) However, we will NOT endorse or promote any specific or singular political candidate or political party.

  8. Teaching our audience how to be self-supporting and self-governing so we don't need to be subject to man's vain government or laws, and don't need to be "privileged" or subject to federal jurisdiction in order to have protection, because they instead trust God and other believers who are loyal to God's law for that protection. See Ezra 8:21-22.  This includes:

    8.1  Getting married without state-issued licenses.  See the Sovereign Christian Marriage, Form #06.009 book.

    8.2  Teaching families how to govern themselves without the need for the government or legal profession by using private Family Courts and binding arbitration of believers when there are problems.  See the Family Constitution, Form #13.003 (OFFSITE LINK) book, sections 3.9 through 3.9.4.

    8.2  Advancing the cause of common-law ecclesiastical courts and boycotting participation in civil courts because the government and the legal profession have become totally corrupted.  See 1 Cor. 6:5-7.

    8.3  Showing people and parents how to live without Social Security Numbers or government benefits.

    8.4  Providing tools to allow people to fire the de factor usurpers and setup their own competing de jure civil government.  See:
    PDF Self Government Federation: Articles of Confederation, Form #13.002

  9. Preventing the legal system from enslaving and oppressing the population and thereby violating God's laws. See Matt. 16:6,11,12

Our religious ministry is based ONLY on the Holy Bible.  Our internal affairs will also be governed by our PDF Sovereignty Education and Defense Ministry (SEDM) Articles of Mission, Form #01.004.

If you would like to learn more about our ministry or offer your services as a volunteer or missionary, then please read the PDF SEDM Articles of Mission, Form #01.004 listed above.  Section 1.2 of that document contains an expanded version of our Mission Statement identified above.

3.  About Privacy

Our ministry officers, volunteers, and fellowship members are secret AND a trade secret.  Since we are all God's agents and fiduciaries, then we want all glory and praise and thanks to go only to Him, and not us or any man.  Since this is a charitable ministry, the Holy Bible says this must be so:

"Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites [lawyers and politicians] do in the synagogues and in the streets [and in jury trials, SCUM!], that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly." 
[Matt. 6:1-4, Bible, NKJV]

We do not maintain any of the following types of accurate or reliable records or information about any of our ministry officers, volunteers, or fellowship members because the PDF SEDM Articles of Mission, Form #01.004 prohibit direct marketing or advertising of any kind:

  1. Member lists.
  2. Member accounts.
  3. Member mailing lists.
  4. Customer lists.

Instead, the only public interface that we have directly with our members are our Member Forums.  This is the only method we have to notify our members of the latest happenings relating to our ministry, and we encourage our Members to avoid entering complete or accurate information when they register to join the member forums or any other online data collection method connected with this website.  None of the forum registration information is verified for accuracy so you can enter whatever you want.  The only thing that needs to be accurate is your email address.

Everything we produce consists of anonymous educational and religious speech and beliefs that are not admissible as evidence (FRE 610) and may be used ONLY for education and for petitioning the government for a Redress of Grievances relating to illegal and unlawful behavior on the part of specific public servants.  Such purposes are protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  The U.S. Supreme Court agreed with this, when it said:

“Under our Constitution, anonymous pamphleteering is not a pernicious, fraudulent practice, but an honorable tradition of advocacy and of dissent.  Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority” 
[McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Comm'n, 514 U.S. 334, 115 S.Ct. 1511, 131 L.Ed.2d 426 (1995)]


"Anonymous pamphlets, leaflets, brochures and even books have played an important role in the progress of mankind." Talley v. California, 362 U.S. 60, 64 (1960). Great works of literature have frequently been produced by authors writing under assumed names. 4 Despite readers' curiosity and the public's interest in identifying the creator of a work of art, an author generally is free to decide whether or not to disclose her true identity. The decision in favor of anonymity may be motivated by fear of economic or official retaliation, by concern about social ostracism, or merely by a desire to preserve as much of one's privacy as possible. Whatever the motivation may be, at least in the field of literary endeavor, the interest in having anonymous works enter the marketplace of ideas unquestionably outweighs any public interest in requiring disclosure as a condition of entry. 5 Accordingly, an author's decision to remain anonymous, like other decisions concerning omissions or additions to the content of a publication, is an aspect of the freedom of speech protected by the First Amendment.

The freedom to publish anonymously extends beyond the literary realm. In Talley, the Court held that the First Amendment protects the distribution of unsigned handbills urging readers to boycott certain Los Angeles merchants who were allegedly engaging in discriminatory employment practices. 362 U.S. 60 . Writing for the Court, Justice Black noted that "[p]ersecuted groups and sects from time to time throughout history have been able to criticize oppressive practices and laws either anonymously or not at all." Id., at 64. Justice Black recalled England's abusive press licensing laws and seditious libel prosecutions, and he reminded us that even the arguments favoring the ratification of the Constitution advanced in the Federalist Papers were published under fictitious names. Id., at 64-65. On occasion, quite apart from any threat of persecution, an advocate may believe her ideas will be more persuasive if her readers are unaware of her identity. Anonymity thereby provides a way for a writer who may be personally unpopular to ensure that readers will not prejudge her message simply because they do not like its proponent. Thus, even in the field of political rhetoric, where "the identity of the speaker is an important component of many attempts to persuade," City of Ladue v. Gilleo, 512 U.S. ___, ___ (1994) (slip op., at 13), the most effective advocates have sometimes opted for anonymity. The specific holding in Talley related to advocacy of an economic boycott, but the Court's reasoning embraced a respected tradition of anonymity in the advocacy of political causes. 6 This tradition is perhaps best exemplified  by the secret ballot, the hard-won right to vote one's conscience without fear of retaliation."
[McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Comm'n, 514 U.S. 334, 115 S.Ct. 1511, 131 L.Ed.2d 426 (1995)]


"Anonymous pamphlets, leaflets, brochures and even books have played an important role in the progress of mankind." 
[Talley v. California, 362 U.S. 60 (1960)]

Therefore, "secrecy", at least in the context of this ministry, is a "religious practice" and the exercise of a "political right" that is protected by the First Amendment (OFFSITE LINK) to the United State Constitution. Also, since the Constitution guarantees equal protection of the laws and because our opponent, the IRS, insists on protecting the identity of its employees in violation of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), then we are entitled to "equal protection under the law" as mandated by section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment (OFFSITE LINK).

We therefore have a solemn and binding contract with our Members and more importantly with God Himself not to reveal any information about our Ministry members to any third party.  In fulfillment of that binding contract:

  1. We do not have a member mailing list or member accounts in our online store.  Instead, if you want to receive our correspondence, then simply get an account on our Forums with a bogus name.
  2. Information about our members is considered copyrighted, and a trade secret, and protected contractually from disclosure.
  3. We cannot and will not maintain any records about our members.  All information that might produce an audit trail will be destroyed immediately.
  4. We cannot and will not ask for, use, or maintain information or records about people’s interactions with the Internal Revenue Service or state taxing authorities, including information about Social Security Numbers, Taxpayer Identification Numbers, etc.
  5. If disclosure is ordered by any government, we are obligated to:
    5.1.  Demand evidence and probable cause of wrongdoing and to not disclose any information without demonstrated probable cause.  Such information must be provided by a third party who does not work for the government, receive any government benefit based on income taxes, or receive employment wages derived from income taxes.
    5.2.  If the evidence provided is not an inadmissible opinion pursuant to Fed.Rul.Ev. 610, but is supported by facts from disinterested third parties, then we will disclose the information without charge or other resistance, but will insist that the recipient grant everyone in the ministry witness immunity as a precondition of disclosure, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 6002.

The government cannot and will not be allowed to interfere with this contract we have with our Members, and the Supreme Court has said that the government is without authority to interfere with our private right to contract:

"Independent of these views, there are many considerations which lead to the conclusion that the power to impair contracts [either the Constitution or the Holy Bible], by direct action to that end, does not exist with the general [federal] government. In the first place, one of the objects of the Constitution, expressed in its preamble, was the establishment of justice, and what that meant in its relations to contracts is not left, as was justly said by the late Chief Justice, in Hepburn v. Griswold, to inference or conjecture. As he observes, at the time the Constitution was undergoing discussion in the convention, the Congress of the Confederation was engaged in framing the ordinance for the government of the Northwestern Territory, in which certain articles of compact were established between the people of the original States and the people of the Territory, for the purpose, as expressed in the instrument, of extending the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty, upon which the States, their laws and constitutions, were erected. By that ordinance it was declared, that, in the just preservation of rights and property, 'no law ought ever to be made, or have force in the said Territory, that shall, in any manner, interfere with or affect private contracts or engagements bona fide and without fraud previously formed.' The same provision, adds the Chief Justice, found more condensed expression in the prohibition upon the States [in Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution] against impairing the obligation of contracts, which has ever been recognized as an efficient safeguard against injustice; and though the prohibition is not applied in terms to the government of the United States, he expressed the opinion, speaking for himself and the majority of the court at the time, that it was clear 'that those who framed and those who adopted the Constitution intended that the spirit of this prohibition should pervade the entire body of legislation, and that the justice which the Constitution was ordained to establish was not thought by them to be compatible with legislation [or judicial precedent] of an opposite tendency.' 8 Wall. 623. [99 U.S. 700, 765]  Similar views are found expressed in the opinions of other judges of this court."

8.  Prohibited activities

Neither Sovereignty Education and Defense Ministry (SEDM) nor any of the Ministry officers, or Volunteers are authorized to involve themselves in any of the following activities, because they are of questionable character or may easily be misconstrued in a court of law as being either illegal or crassly commercial, even if they in fact are not.  Pursuant to the SEDM Member Agreement, Form #01.001, Fellowship Members also agree never to use any of the Ministry materials or services for an unlawful purpose, and agree never at any time to solicit the Ministry to engage in any of the following specifically prohibited activities or use Ministry materials for any of the following purposes.

  1. The following parties may read, download, or learn materials available through this website or ministry but may not use them during litigation as evidence, attach them to a pleading, or submit them to any member of the government or legal professions in connection with any dispute, and especially legal dispute, over tax liability:

    1.1  “taxpayers”, "U.S. citizens", "U.S. persons", U.S. "residents", or those with income "effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States".  We assume no responsibility for the misuse of our materials by those who violate our PDF Member Agreement, Form #01.001.

    1.2  Atheists or those who do not believe in God.  God's punishment for those who do not obey and respect Him and His sacred laws is slavery and servitude, and we cannot interfere with His sovereign punishment for disobedience.  To do otherwise would be to commit mutiny against God.  We cannot love God on the one hand, and interfere with the enforcement of PDF His Laws on the other hand.  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 section 4.3.10 and the PDF SEDM Articles of Mission, Form #01.004 section 1.2 for evidence supporting this requirement of God's laws.

    “The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law [PDF HIS law, not man's law] and make it honorable.  But this is a people robbed and plundered! [by tyrants in government]  All of them are snared in [legal] holes [by the sophistry of greedy lawyers], and they are hidden in prison houses; they are for prey, and no one delivers; for plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”.

    Who among you will give ear to this?  Who will listen and hear for the time to come?  Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers? [IRS]  Was it not the Lord, He against whom we have sinned?  For they would not walk in His ways, nor were they obedient to PDF His law, therefore He has poured on him the fury of His anger and the strength of battle; it has set him on fire all around, yet he did not know; and it burned him, yet he did not take it to heart.” 
    [Isaiah 42:21-25, Bible, NKJV]

    1.3  Anyone who has filed a 1040 instead of the 1040NR as required by our PDF Member Agreement, Form #01.001 or those who have indicated any tax liability or monies owed to the IRS on their return for any period they require help with.  No member may have any earnings which are "effectively connected with a trade or business", which are earnings from a political office as described in 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(26).  Instead, the income, property, and earnings of our members are defined as a "foreign estate" under 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(31)

    1.4  Businesses. We only help human beings and not "persons", "businesses", or artificial legal entities such as corporations or trusts or partnerships.

  2. Getting involved in any kind of taxable or government-regulated activity, either under state or federal law.  This would simply compromise our independence and create a conflict of interest with our message.  Consequently, we cannot and will not operate as  a privileged federal or state "corporation" or 501(c)(3) entity.  To do so would be to surrender our sovereignty by fulfilling the exceptions to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act found at 28 U.S.C. 1605(a)(2).
  3. Advocating or knowingly ("willfully") engaging in any kind of illegal activity, including fraud.
  4. Taking any kind of leadership or power of attorney role over the lives of others.  This includes, giving legal advice, making determinations about the legal status of a person, or assuming legal liability for the decisions or actions of others.  As educators and paralegals but not lawyers, the most we can do is offer information to people about options they have in a given situation and then explain to them the consequences of each option by showing them what the law and the courts say on the subject.  We will never offer less than two options and we will always suggest that the options we are aware of may not include all of the options available or necessarily even the best option.  We will also tell our Members that the decision of which option to take is entirely their responsibility and not ours.  On the occasion of every inquiry by a Member, we will also tell people that they should research and confirm everything we say and not trust anyone, including us, for complete or error-free information about the options available to them.  We will never be anything more than servants of the sovereign People we serve on this website and assuming any other role undermines their sovereignty.
  5. Preparing tax returns for others or advising anyone in the preparation of returns.  All our members prepare their own returns, and the only type of return they are allowed to prepare and not violate our PDF Member Agreement, Form #01.001 is a 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ return that has no tax liability listed.
  6. Making any promises or assurances about either the accuracy or the success of any of the educational resources or processes we offer. Anyone who promises you ANY result or promises you entirely error free material is quite frankly a presumptuous FOOL.  This is especially true in a field so deliberately and systematically obfuscated and propagandized by the government as taxation. The most we are therefore authorized to do is keep scientific statistics on the success of our methods and reveal those carefully maintained statistics to interested parties. The ministry DOES NOT authorize ANYONE to share subjective opinions about the effectiveness of our methods or materials. Any such representations by anyone associated with or involved with SEDM should be considered unauthorized, untrustworthy, and probably UNTRUE and neither we nor anyone in the ministry assume any liability for such clearly false statements. The one and only thing we can guarantee is that we as believers in God (whatever God you believe in) are going to be persecuted by evil people in the world, just as Jesus was, for obeying God's moral laws and following Jesus' example.  The persecution will come because our actions , our example, and our deeds to expose the Truth will be a silent reproach and mockery to evil people throughout the world, and especially in places where such evil people congregate and concentrate, such as in government.  Places where power is consolidated and centralized attract WICKED people who lust for power and who want to conceal knowledge of their treacherous, selfish, and tyrannical acts.

    "He who believes in Him [Jesus, the Son of God] is not condemned ; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light [of God's Truth spread by His followers] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
    [John 3:18-21, Bible]

    Furthermore, the more we attempt to separate ourselves from evil people or evil in government and the more dogmatic we become about insisting on obeying God's moral laws when they conflict with man's laws, the more these evil people will try to persecute us, just as they did with the early Jews.

    Look, I am sending you out as sheep among [government] wolves. Be as wary as snakes and harmless as doves. But beware! For you will be handed over to the [corrupted] courts [by licensed attorneys with a conflict of interest] and beaten in the synagogues[501(c)(3) churches]. And you must stand trial before governors and kings [and federal judges, who are the equivalent of modern-day Monarchs] because you are my followers. This will be your opportunity to tell them about me—yes, to witness to the world. When you are arrested [by the de-facto corporate government MAFIA because you threaten their organized crime ring], don’t worry about what to say in your defense, because you will be given the right words at the right time. For it won’t be you doing the talking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

    “Brother will betray brother to death, fathers will betray their own children [by aborting them or selling them into federal slavery by giving them Social Security Numbers, the "badge of allegiance to the Beast", and by falsely claiming they are "U.S. citizens" on their tax returns], and children will rise against their parents [using Child Protective Services] and cause them to be killed [or persecuted by a zealous state eager to justify its existence and expand its jurisdiction at the expense of our sovereignty and Constitutional Rights]. And everyone [and especially misbehaving public DIS-servants] will hate you [and persecute you illegally and unconstitutionally] because of your [exclusive] allegiance to me [God]. But those who endure [and expose the Truth] to the end will be saved [and thereby prevent eternal harm at the price of temporary earthly discomfort]. When you are persecuted in one town, flee to the next. I assure you that I, the Son of Man, will return before you have reached all the towns of Israel.

    “A student is not greater than the teacher. A [public] servant is not greater than the [Sovereign] master. The student [us] shares the teacher’s [Jesus'] fate. The servant [believers and followers of God] shares the master’s [Jesus'] fate. And since I, the master of the household, have been called the prince of demons, how much more will it happen to you, the members of the household!  But don’t be afraid of those [thieves and tyrants masquerading as "public servants"] who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything will be revealed [and evil punished at the final judgment]; all that is secret will be made public. What I tell you now in the darkness, shout [from websites like this one] abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ears, shout from the housetops for all to hear [and on websites like this one that are outside of government jurisdiction]!

    “Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill you. They can only kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear [and obey] only God [and PDF His laws, not the government's unless they are consistent with God's laws], who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows." 
    [Jesus in Matt. 10:16-31, Bible, New Living Translation]

  7. "Representing" anyone before the IRS or the government. For instance, we will never allow our members to file an IRS form 2848 giving us any kind of power of attorney to represent anyone. Instead, all members of the ministry shall assume complete and sole responsibility for preparing and submitting any correspondence that they may send to government authorities. That is the ONLY way to maintain their anonymity and prevent them from becoming targets for wrongful and illegal government persecution.
  8. Advertising or marketing. All of our nontaxpayer members will be introduced by referrals from satisfied Members and through hits on our public website. We will not offer any kind of affiliate program or commission structure to anyone, because we believe this compromises the integrity of our message.
  9. Offering Credit repair services of any kind.
  10. Debt cancellation using the UCC or bogus securities such as use of “Bills of Exchange”.
  11. Offering any kind of product or service unofficially, such as via email, in person, or via telephone, that does not already appear within our online store.
  12. Creating or administering asset protection vehicles for members, such as trusts or corporations soles.
  13. Providing legal representation in courts of justice. We may provide “assistance of counsel” but not legal representation, because we don’t want to undermine the sovereignty of our Members that we intend to serve, nor do we wish to be harassed or persecuted by a corrupted legal profession intent on prosecuting people for practicing law “without a license”, even though there is no such thing as a “license to practice law” and doing so creates an illegal monopoly on INjustice on the part of the legal profession.
  14. Commerce within the legislative jurisdiction of the United States government. All donations to this religious ministry will occur via eCommerce on a webserver and using bank account(s) that are outside the country.  Our Member Agreement, Form #01.001 requires that all those making donations to this ministry must stipulate by contract that they are doing so from without the "United States" and in a foreign state immune from the jurisdiction of the United States government.
  15. Using donations provided to directly support the activities or information that they were incident to.  This means, for instance, that if a donation is made for a response letter, then the donation may not be used directly for preparing response letters but will be used for other purposes.    This constraint applies to the ministry but not the member making the donation.
  16. Claiming that it is one's citizenship status that primarily or exclusively determines tax liability.  Instead, it is one's domicile and being engaged in excise taxable activities such as a "trade or business" that primarily determine tax liability.  See the following articles for details:
    16.1  "PDF The "Trade or Business" scam, Form #05.001"
    16.2  "PDF Why domicile and becoming a "taxpayer" require your consent, Form #05.002
  17. Offering any kind of investment, classes about investing, or "tax shelters" based on anything available on this website.
  18. Advocacy of or participation in gambling, poker, roulette, slots, card games, etc.  Gambling is an addictive and sinful activity that destroys families and enslaves people.  See Family Constitution, Form #13.003, sections 8.4.4 through 8.4.4.2 for more information on this sinful behavior.

  19. Flattering or ingratiating any of our members, volunteers, or contributors. The ONLY thing this website is allowed to glorify is the one and only God, and not any vain man. We are ALL God's servants, we are ALL EQUAL under God's laws, and our Father in Heaven DOESN'T play favorites for anyone because He is a Righteous God!
  20. Offering advice or personal assistance to people regarding income tax withholding or reporting.
  21. "Assuming" or "presuming" anything, and especially in regards to the authority of our public servants.

    “Anyone entering into an arrangement with the government takes the risk of having accurately ascertained that he who purports to act for the government stays within the bounds of his authority, even though the agent himself may be unaware of the limitations upon his authority.” 
    [Federal Crop Insurance v. Merrill, 332 U.S. 380-388 (1947)]

    "The power to create presumptions is not a means of escape from constitutional restrictions,"
    [New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964)]

    "Presumption"  is a biblical sin under Numbers 15:30 that turns a government into a religion and destroys the rule of law (see Presumption: Chief Weapon for Unlawfully Enlarging Federal Jurisdiction, Form #05.017).  The ONLY thing we can rely on without sinning and violating Constitutional due process in the process of establishing the authority of public servants is the Bible and enacted, unrepealed, positive law , and to abstain from consenting to or putting any faith at all in any statute that is not explicitly enacted into positive law by the consent of the governed through their elected representatives.  The Internal Revenue Code , as revealed in the legislative notes under 1 U.S.C. 204, is NOT positive law  and therefore imposes no obligation upon anyone who does not consent to be subject to its provisions by a voluntary, uncoerced, fully-informed act of free choice.  Furthermore, human beings protected by the Constitution are FORBIDDEN by the organic law from forfeitting any right to a de jure government by consenting. Hence, the I.R.C. cannot be enforced within a state of the Union and may only be enforced within federal territory or those domiciled on federal territory, whereever situated. Please rebut the following if you disagree:
    21.1  Requirement for Consent, Form #05.003; http://sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex.htm.
    21.2  Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 , section 5.4.

Anyone who purports to be connected with this ministry and offers you anything from the above list of forbidden ministry services or educational materials therefore:

  1. Is an imposter intent on doing us harm and possibly connecting us to things we are not allowed to get into.  Please notify us of the identity of this imposter and provide as much information about him as you can so that we can report him to the authorities.
  2. Cannot be relied upon to be telling the truth.  Everything you hear on any of the above subjects you should regard not necessarily as untrue, but at least as "fiction".
  3. Is not representing or participating in this ministry, but is a Member in Bad Standing acting as a private person.

This website has an agreement with the authors as the only source for books, CD's, DVDs offered here.  If anyone:

  1. Solicits, calls, emails, or writes you and says they are offering a product or service on behalf of SEDM....OR
  2. Displays any advertisements for SEDM products (we do NOT advertise)....OR
  3. Indicates they are an "affiliate" of SEDM (we do not have an affiliate program)...OR
  4. Maintains a website other than this one that lists any of our materials for sale that were developed exclusively by us or our authors.

...then we encourage you to submit information about the pirate or imposter to us through our Contact Us page so they can be exposed and dealt with to protect our members.  This would include details about the periodical or newspaper any fraudulent and illegal adds appeared in, the identity, name, phone number, and email address of the person who contacted you on behalf of SEDM. Likewise, if you observe anything suspicious or clearly unethical or illegal that is being falsely done to slander the good name of our Lord or this ministry, we encourage you to contact us immediately. Your identity will be kept confidential and the information you submit we will use to prosecute the slanderer and imposter for fraud and swindling.

Likewise, if anyone attempts to contact you to provide denigrating or unfavorable information about us, we would appreciate being notified of the email or call and the identity of the person who is slandering us.  We will use this information to:

We desire to bring nothing but HONOR and GLORY to the Lord Jesus Christ who we exist ONLY to serve and obey. This requires that everything we do in the context of this ministry must be entirely beyond reproach.

9.  About religious tolerance and this ministry

The scriptures and religious references used on this website come primarily from the Bible.  Some people who are not necessarily Christians have asked us about our view of other religions and how that view relates to whether they can become members.  The PDF Member Agreement, Form #01.001 says that all people who wish to become members must believe in God, but it very deliberately doesn't say which God.  They want to know more about this subject so they can make an informed decision and ensure that we are not religious bigots or extremists.  That is the question we will deal with in this section.

The main thing we want you to understand is that we don’t insist that all Members must be Christian or any other faith for that matter.  We just want you to believe in a SINGLE God, follow the laws of that God without selecting which ones you want to follow, practice separation of church and state, and not be against religions other than your own.  NOT being against religions other than your own implies NOT doing any of the following:

  1. You don’t seek to commit genocide against anyone, including those of religions other than your own.
  2. You don’t seek to behead or punish in any way those who don’t share your beliefs using law or the government.
  3. You don’t deny the Holy Trinity, consisting of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
  4. You don’t argue with or punish the Christian belief that God had a son. Muslims believe God had no son and argue with Christians about it.
  5. You won’t support the implementation of your any religious law system or theocracy within the government, including especially Sharia law.

All of the above represent the initiation of force, coercion, or punishment against people for their religious beliefs, or impose or enforce religious laws against those who don't support them using the violence or coercion of the state. We aren't saying we oppose Muslims but we oppose Muslims who force their beliefs or laws upon others using the violence of the state. For why we oppose force and violence for religious reasons as indicated above, see:

Biblical Prophecy and the Coming Muslim Antichrist, Walid Shoebat
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ8C-qe3qSM

SEDM does not have any faith requirements, other than that people are believers.  We say that people should believe in God singular but we very deliberately do not say WHICH God. To be a member of SEDM, you must understand and accept the fact that SEDM seeks to interact with the issues of our time from a Christian world view; and, you must agree NOT to undermine or subvert or sabotage the Source of our opinions or beliefs . . but this requirement does not imply that constructive, progressive criticism is not welcome.  Our positions on law and politics proceed from the Scripture as we understand it, howbeit, imperfectly.  The philosophy you should be compatible with is summarized below:

  1. You must understand and accept the following beliefs connected with the tree of life:

    1.1 There is only one, true Lawgiver who is the infinite, personal, triune Spirit, the God of Creation, the Author of the Bible, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; and, 

    1.2 That this God has spoken in history as recorded in God’s Word which is sufficient for our faith and conduct; and,

    1.3 That this God has revealed His law to men which is the only true measure of justice; and,

    1.4 That this God has revealed His grace and mercy to us in and through His Son for the salvation of men by virtue of His death, burial, and resurrection; and,

    1.5 That Christ is the risen, ascended, enthroned King of kings, the King of the Nations,  the only Sovereign upon which all de jure governments must build their foundation (Isaiah 9:6); and,

    1.6 That the family, and government, and church are God-ordained institution; and, that the family is the institution of education; that the government is the institution of justice; and that the Church is the institution of grace. 

    1.7 That good government is a blessing to mankind; and, that the purpose of government is not redistribution of wealth, but in place to protect life, liberty, and property; and, that when a government becomes destructive to these ends, it is man’s duty to resist or to alter or abolish it, and to institute new governments to the glory of God and to the service of man.

  2. You must not concede to the following suppositions as they have a lineage to the poisonous tree:

    2.1 Religious atheism: the value system that results from a belief that man is a product of time plus chance; or,

    2.2 Pantheism; the belief that God is everything and everything is God. Such a tautology is the intellectual sin of word magic; or,

    2.3 Zionism or Judaism: the Talmudic belief that Ashkenazi Jews are God’s chosen people and are destined to rule the world and have a God-given right to deceive and use Gentiles to their own ends; or,

    2.4 Humanism; the belief that man is the measure of all things; or, that man is or becoming a god; or, that man is himself the proper “ultimate concern” and source of law; or,

    2.5 Pluralism or Universalism: the belief that there are many gods and many religions, that all are good, and that all are roads to the same truth; or,

    2.6 Mohammedism: the false religion based on the teaching of the false prophet, Mohammed (570-632 A.D.).

    2.7 Legalism: the belief that law can save society and that society can reach a man-made utopia by enacting more legislation; and,

    2.8 Multiculturalism: The belief ethical diversity is a strength and not a weakness to overcome; and,  that atheists and theists; Christians and Moslems;  wolves and sheep can live in the same pasture in peace; or

    2.9 Racism: The belief that one race commends a man to God or that one race is superior to another; or,

    2.10 Fascism, Liberalism, or totalitarianism or any belief that government is god; that rights come from government; that service to the State is superior to other callings; or belief in the total subjugation of the total man to total government.  

  3. Unacceptable characteristics that will result in rejection of your specific faith:

    3.1  Attack the validity of the Bible as a law book.

    3.2  Believe they or any currently living man/woman can become gods, EQUAL to God, SUPERIOR to God, or UNACCOUNTABLE to the one and only God. That is what Satan tried to do, which earned him an eternal curse.

    3.3  Identify god as a physical thing, including themself, or identify him/her as existing in physical things.  See Rom. 1:24-25, which says pagans worship the creation rather than the creator.  It results in mysticism and occultism and violates the First Commandment.

    3.4  Practice "smorgasboard religion".  For instance, they write their own divine law or bible or pick subsets of all faiths to make their own hodge-podge religion.  This is nothing but a self-serving way to escape accountability or liability under any single divine law.  Click here (OFFSITE LINK) for details.

    3.5  Treat religion as an intellectual exercise rather than rules for how to treat others and love others.

    3.6  Seek to escape accountability to the laws of their god by stating that any part of it has been repealed or is not enforceable or is subjectively defined by them.

    3.7  Put their desire for any earthly physical pleasure or condition or possession higher in priority than their allegiance to PDF God's Holy Laws.

    3.8  Believe in multiple Gods. That's paganism and idolatry.

    3.9  Believe they are superior to other religions or that other religions are a product of ignorance.  This sort of elitism divides groups, creates animosity, and violates the notion of equal protection and equal treatment.

    3.10  Believe that any government or civil ruler can or should have more authority or rights than a single human, thus instituting idolatry towards government.

    3.11 Sanction, condone, or promote violence of any kind in any scenario OTHER than in self defense where one's life is immediately threatened by a hostile other. This is especially true of violence or hate directed against either other religions or their members, specific governments, or innocent people generally.

Anyone who meets the above criteria, we believe, is capable of being worthy to deserve liberty, which the Declaration of Independence points out comes only from "Nature's God".  If you meet the above minimum religious criteria and consent to the rest of the PDF Member Agreement, Form #01.001, then we welcome you as a member.  Otherwise, we don't.  We have many members who are not Christians and many members from different Christian faiths.  There are Catholics, Muslims, Lutherans, Evangelicals, and many other faiths represented.  However, we have no atheists and we wouldn't take atheists as members.  This is because:

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty [freedom]."
[2 Corinthians 3:17, Bible, NKJV]

Conversely, where the spirit of the "Lord" ISN'T, there can be absolutely nothing but sin, slavery, and subjection, as the Bible clearly points out. The Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK), section 4.3.10 conclusively proves this.  Spiritual evil is not a tangible thing.  Instead, it is actually the ABSENCE of God.  Hell is a place of eternal separation from God, which is a place where God and His sacred moral laws are completely absent.  The word "sin" in Spanish means "without", and the thing that people are "without" when they "sin" is God and PDF His Laws.  Consequently, atheists are the epitomy of evil because they believe God does not exist and that manifestations of His moral laws should be removed from society.  Most religions teach us to avoid evil, and therefore we must avoid atheists.  We believe in and vociferously defend freedom OF religion, but we are entirely opposed to freedom FROM religion.  Our quote at the beginning of this page from George Washington, our most revered founding father, explains why this MUST be so:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, "where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?" And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” 
[George Washington in his Farewell Address (OFFSITE LINK)]

If you want specific examples of religions or belief systems ("isms") that we have determined so far as unacceptable, below are a few and there may be others.  All of these "religions" violate one or more of the criteria listed earlier.  Those who become members and have any of these beliefs will be Members in Bad Standing:

  1. Atheism
  2. Satanism
  3. Thelema
  4. Christian Rationalism

We believe that government should not be used as a vehicle to either PDF establish a religion or to disestablish one, or to promote Christianity over any other faith. To do otherwise would be to deprive people of all faiths the "equal protection of the laws" (see Requirement for Equal Protection and Equal Treatment, Form #05.033).  You answer to your God, and not us. We are not the judge of whether you have satisfied the laws of your God and to do otherwise would make us into bigots and zealots and aristocrats.  We are, however, the judge of whether you are injuring your neighbor, which is the subject of the last six commandments of the Ten Commandments (OFFSITE LINK) and the origin of all moral and legal authority that the government has.

Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him [Jesus] a question, testing Him, and saying, "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"

Jesus said to him, "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'  This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets." 
[Matt. 22:36-40, Bible, NKJV]

We assume that role as a jurist and a voter. Beyond keeping people from injuring each other, governments and religions should BOTH leave people alone to do as they please, and not force them to subsidize or participate in things they don't believe in. Thomas Jefferson said it best, when he said:

"With all [our] blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow citizens--a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities."
[Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:320]

We also think that it is the moral and political duty of churches to ensure that governments don't get into the charity or the welfare business, because the laws of God say that these are the exclusive province of the family and the church, and NOT the government. By instituting income taxes and using the income taxes to fund charities/insurance such as Social Security, Medicare, FICA, etc., none of which are authorized by the Constitution to be done in states of the Union, the government is usurping sovereignty from churches and families and from individuals and making itself into essentially a false god to be worshipped with our earnings and labor.  Click here (OFFSITE LINK) for an article on this subject.

One very important reason that bible quotes are so prevalent on our website is to grab people's hearts. If their minds are engaged but their hearts aren't, then they won't be willing to fight. Without a fight, the problems will get worse. The only limit of tyrants is the degree to which an apathetic citizenry will tolerate their abuses. The social problems documented on SEDM are primarily evidence of spiritual decay, immorality, apathy, and selfishness. These diseases are destroying our society and they are primarily political diseases which require a political and spiritual change. Spiritual problems need a spiritual remedy. We have a society without morals because we don’t teach morality in schools and government has been destroying families and undermining churches so that kids don't have an opportunity to learn morality in these classical contexts. This has made them easy prey for tyrants.  Hence, we must overcompensate by reviving the study of morality on our site so that people will be willing to take up arms and mobilize to fight the evil. People have become so jaded and desensitized by TV and media culture that it seems there is nothing that will awaken them from their hedonistic stupor any more. Law is a moral code and a contract that the Sovereign people got together and agreed on. It is based on reason and logic.  Law is just the vehicle to implement the needed political changes. It is a tool, but not the end. Morality is the end, and religion is the basis for all morality.  Who better to learn the "laws" of morality from than "Nature's God".  We only quote the Bible, because that is what we are most familiar with, but if you went to any other sacred book, you would find the same laws of morality, whether it be the Quran, The Teachings of Buddha or Confucius, or any other sacred text.  These universal "moral laws" are what we refer to as "natural law" throughout our writings in order to objectify the discussion. We have even taken the time to organize the laws found in the Holy Bible by subject just like the U.S. Code so that you can use them as a law book.  See:

PDF Laws of the Bible, Form #13.001

Don't get obsessed with the source or the name of the book or the faith or "sect" of the author, because that will only generate conflict that the government will try to exploit to prevent us from combining forces to eliminate the evil.  If you are not a Christian or are not familiar with the Bible, then instead of being offended, please instead focus your attention in using our materials on the "moral laws" revealed by scripture we quote and don't be distracted into wrongfully concluding that we are trying to "convert" you in any way. 

"And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me [God]."
[Matt. 11:6, Bible, NKJV]

Please try to be more objective by simply treating the Bible less as a "religion" and more simply as a "natural law" or "moral law" book because we certainly don't intend to either brainwash or discriminate against any religious faith.  You obviously enjoy the study of law or you wouldn't be visiting our website to begin with.  Why is that so hard?  Such an approach will keep the discussion focused objectively on morality and logic and establish a common set of beliefs that we all share which can become the basis for cooperation in effecting political change. Paul Harvey described this approach in the following video:

  An Open Letter from God (OFFSITE LINK) -Paul Harvey

According to several of our founding fathers, when a people forget or repress God, then tyrants forge their chains:

"It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains ..."
[Patrick Henry]

“Those people who are not governed by GOD will be ruled by tyrants.” 
[William Penn (after which Pennsylvania was named)]

"A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate."
[Thomas Jefferson: Rights of British America, 1774. ME 1:209, Papers 1:134]

"Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?"
[Thomas Jefferson : Notes on Virginia Q.XVIII, 1782. ME 2:227]

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”
[Benjamin Franklin]

"Propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained."
[George Washington (1732-1799)]

Those who are admitted atheists and who reject God and morality deserve an immoral and tyrannical government that acts like a false god, steals their property, and lies to you.  We should always reap the consequences of that which we sow.  This is an extension of the Golden Rule:  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In the scientific field, this also happens to be one of Newton's Universal Laws:

"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."

Those who insist on a world entirely without God are encouraged to not use this website and not to become Members.  We believe in separation of church and state.  We are the "church" (believer) and atheists are obviously the "state".  Let's separate.  Atheists can go to HELL and we'll go to Heaven.  For those who don't believe there is a HELL, then we'll just have to wait and see about that, friend!  Those who insist on a "moral" government without God or religion are the real "nut case", because they want the golden eggs, which is a moral and righteous government, but also insist on killing the goose that lays them, which is religion and morality.

“Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares, she cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city she speaks her words; how long, you simple [atheist] ones, will you love simplicity?  For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge.  Turn at my rebuke; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.  Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, because you disdained my counsel [and My law: God's law], and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror [a corrupted WICKED government that is God's competitor rather than His servant] comes.  When your terror [corrupted government] comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.  Because they hated knowledge [and were too lazy and complacent to seek it out], and did not choose the fear of the Lord.  They have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.  Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies.  For the turning away of the simple will slay them.  And the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me [God and the wisdom that comes ONLY from God] will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.
[Prov. 1:20-33, Bible, NKJV]

10.  Relationship to Government

"Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man [WHICH IS ONLY] for  the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men—  as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.  Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king."
[1 Peter 2:13-17, Bible, NKJV]

Visit Section 8 of our Disclaimer Page for a description of why this fellowship and ministry is against hate speech, hate crime, and violence.  We are a peaceful group which respects, advocates, subsidizes, and even protects all lawful exercises of governmental power consistent with the state and federal constitutions, enacted law, and the constitutions and laws of any private group of people that wants to divorce the state and form their own private self-government.

We are not against any government.  In fact, we love the whole notion of government so much that we want to form our own government and to do it consistent with the original de jure constitutions and laws that began this country.  The Declaration of Independence says that when the government we have becomes tyrannical, it is our right and even our DUTY to form our own competing and better government.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. "
[Declaration of Independence]

The Declaration of Independence makes it the DUTY of all Americans to legally divorce any government that becomes wasteful or abusive and provide a better and competing alternative.  We The People cannot delegate an authority to any government to "govern" that they themselves do not also have.  They have a right to withhold that delegation of authority and domiciliary allegiance, form their own civil government, and shift their domicile and allegiance, and tax money to that competing government.  We believe this option is the only way to peacefully restore choice, competition, accountability, and efficiency to government.  This is the ONLY peaceful method of reforming corrupted governments provided by the founding fathers. Anyone who interferes with this process is indirectly:

  1. Advocating and sanctioning violence and anarchy, because all other options require violence.
  2. Engaging in acts of international terrorism, if the people who are being intefered with are legislatively foreign or alien because domiciled outside the jurisdiction of the government.
  3. Conducting an invasion of the states of the Union in violation of Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution, in which THEY are the invaders.

If capitalism and competition keeps the economy healthy on the private side, there is no reason that it can't work in government as well.  Any effort to restrict choice or perpetuate a monopoly on protection by a specific government is an effort to enslave and oppress the people.  Below is the blueprint for accomplishing that transformation:

If you would like to know what the government thinks of the content posted on this website, after its content was put under the microscope for over a year by the top legal minds in government, then we encourage you to read the article below.  Note that this website is not owned or controlled by the party who is the subject of the article.  The litigation which is described below therefore proceeded upon false premises and PDF false presumptions in this regard:

Federal District Court Rules on Hansen Injunction, 6/13/2006

As a result of the above litigation:

  1. This website survived intense scrutiny by the Department of Justice, the IRS, and the federal judiciary and remains unaffected by the outcome of the litigation from the date the Answer to the complaint was filed in June 2005 to the present time.  A few minor changes were made to the Member Agreement, Form #01.001, the Disclaimer, and the Bookstore Checkout Screens and a few of the materials were rewritten and improved, but there is nothing on this website that violates any law that we are aware of and which the government had evidence to prove violated any law.
  2. Both the government and the court were repeatedly provided with a long list of questions at least four different times asking them to identify anything that they thought was violative of enacted law, false, fraudulent, or violative of the order and they refused EVERY opportunity to do so.  They were specifically asked to remain silent in responding to the questions if they agreed that everything on this website and everything in the pleadings before the court were truthful, accurate, and consistent with prevailing law and they remained silent and therefore gave their stamp of approval to this website.
  3. The government was provided with a copy of nearly everything on this website on a DVD-ROM and were asked to inspect and critique anything that they thought was violative of enacted law, false, fraudulent, or violative of the order and they refused EVERY opportunity to do so.  They were specifically asked to remain silent in responding to the questions if they agreed that everything on this website and everything in the pleadings before the court were truthful, accurate, and consistent with prevailing law and they remained silent and therefore gave their stamp of approval to this website.
  4. The court order did not point out one factual error in anything currently posted on this website or identify anything as "frivolous".
  5. When arguments described in our Liberty University and our Memorandums of Law were raised repeatedly by the defendant before the federal court and the DOJ, both the DOJ and the judge could not respond and were silent.  The pleadings involved had our PDF Federal Pleading/Motion/Petition Attachment, Litigation Tool #01.002 attached to them specifically asking the Court and the Plaintiff to remain silent on every fact or legal argument that they AGREED was truthful and accurate.  This means they agreed, under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 8(b)(6).  See our pamphlet "Silence as a Weapon and a Defense in Legal Discovery, Form #05.021" if you want to know more about this.  There is simply no way to respond to truth that exposes your misdeeds with anything other than silence or an admission of guilt.
  6. The IRS agent who downloaded information off this website made himself subject to the Member Agreement, Form #01.001, and his affidavit attached to the court pleadings proves this.  The PDF Terms of Use and Service, Form #01.016, Section 5, item 6 says that all Members, including the IRS agent, stipulate to admit everything on this website into evidence and that it is truthful and accurate.

We can therefore honestly and truthfully make the following claim:

This website has been reviewed for accuracy and approved as truthful, factual (for THEM, and not for US), and accurate by the Department of Justice, the IRS, and the Federal Judiciary, and is one of very few freedom websites of its kind which can claim that important distinction.

WARNING:  If you are NOT a Member, be advised that you will become one by clicking on this link to our Member Notice and availing yourself of the privileged content therein.

The sovereign People are the "government" (OFFSITE LINK) in the United States of America.  Consequently, those people working in our public institutions are our servants, including the Supreme Court (OFFSITE LINK), the President (OFFSITE LINK), and the Congress (OFFSITE LINK).  Consequently, this section will describe our relationship to these public servants.

"The words 'people of the United States' and 'citizens,' are synonymous terms, and mean the same thing. They both describe the political body who, according to our republican institutions, form the sovereignty, and who hold the power and conduct the government through their representatives. They are what we familiarly call the 'sovereign people,' and every citizen is one of this people, and a constituent member of this sovereignty. ..." 
[Boyd v. State of Nebraska, 143 U.S. 135 (1892)]

As "nationals" but not "citizens" pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) and 8 U.S.C. 1452, our allegiance is to the "state", which is legally defined as "We the People", and not the public servants who administer any government and serve them.  They are the Sovereign and our allegiance is to this "sovereign".  Our goal is to serve, protect, and empower this group of Sovereigns, We the People, who the U.S. Supreme Court said was the "government".  Consequently, it is absolutely fraudulent and absurd to accuse us of being "anti-government".  We are against illegal activity, which is most prevalent among public servants and even court personnel at this time, but these people are NOT the "government", but simply servants of the true Sovereign and "government", which is We the People.  They have set up a "de facto" unlawful government and "sham trust" to benefit themselves personally, but they are not "the government" as legally defined:

"Whatever these Constitutions and laws validly determine to be property, it is the duty of the Federal Government, through the domain of jurisdiction merely Federal, to recognize to be property.

“And this principle follows from the structure of the respective Governments, State and Federal, and their reciprocal relations. They are different agents and trustees of the people of the several States, appointed with different powers and with distinct purposes, but whose acts, within the scope of their respective jurisdictions, are mutually obligatory. "
[Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1856)]

  16. We Are the Church (OFFSITE LINK)

We view the Constitution as a public contract, and a delegation of authority between citizens as the Sovereigns/Masters and the public servants who serve them.  We also view the Bible as a sacred private contract/covenant between believers, who are the servants, and their God, who is the Master.  It too is a delegation of authority from God to us.  According to the Declaration of Independence (OFFSITE LINK), all rights and sovereignty come from God (the Creator) through His divine word and Law, and not from any earthly law or judge or man.  The Bible, like the federal Constitution (OFFSITE LINK), establishes a fiduciary relationship (OFFSITE LINK) between the servants and their Masters.  No public servant or government instrumentality has the authority to interfere with or impair the obligation of EITHER one of these two sacred contracts. 

“Remember the word that I [Jesus] said to you, 'A [public] servant is not greater than his [sovereign] master.'”
[John 15:20, Bible, NKJV]

The Constitution is also a "public trust" document, where employees within the government are trustees of the public trust and we the people are the beneficiaries.

"Whatever these Constitutions and laws validly determine to be property, it is the duty of the Federal Government, through the domain of jurisdiction merely Federal, to recognize to be property.

And this principle follows from the structure of the respective Governments, State and Federal, and their reciprocal relations. They are different agents and trustees of the people of the several States, appointed with different powers and with distinct purposes, but whose acts, within the scope of their respective jurisdictions, are mutually obligatory. "
[Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393, 1856]

Public servants who disobey the Constitution, in fact, are involved in witchcraft, idolatry, treason, and political heresy, which are not only punishable by death under man's law (18 U.S.C. 2381), but also constitute the worst of all sins under God's Laws (see the first four commandments of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20)!:

"Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the LORD [and the people in the Constitution]?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
For rebellion [of either the Constitution or the Bible] is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word [and laws] of the [sovereign] LORD [or "We the People" in the Constitution],
He also has rejected you from being king
[and a sovereign over your government as a private citizen, or a public servant]."
[1 Sam. 15:22-23, Bible, NKJV]

The Supreme Court Cite below establishes that neither a single public servant nor an entire state or federal government can interfere with our right to accept and obey God's private contract/covenant with us, the Bible.  Private law/contracts always supersede public law.  They cannot compel us to violate God's laws in that covenant, which is a sacred delegation of authority direct to us just like the Constitution is a delegation of authority from us to our public servants.  Neither can they violate the contract that binds them to us as the Sovereigns and Masters, which are the federal and state Constitution:

"Independent of these views, there are many considerations which lead to the conclusion that the power to impair contracts [either the Constitution or the Holy Bible], by direct action to that end, does not exist with the general [federal] government. In the first place, one of the objects of the Constitution, expressed in its preamble, was the establishment of justice, and what that meant in its relations to contracts is not left, as was justly said by the late Chief Justice, in Hepburn v. Griswold, to inference or conjecture. As he observes, at the time the Constitution was undergoing discussion in the convention, the Congress of the Confederation was engaged in framing the ordinance for the government of the Northwestern Territory, in which certain articles of compact were established between the people of the original States and the people of the Territory, for the purpose, as expressed in the instrument, of extending the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty, upon which the States, their laws and constitutions, were erected. By that ordinance it was declared, that, in the just preservation of rights and property, 'no law ought ever to be made, or have force in the said Territory, that shall, in any manner, interfere with or affect private contracts or engagements bona fide and without fraud previously formed.' The same provision, adds the Chief Justice, found more condensed expression in the prohibition upon the States [in Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution] against impairing the obligation of contracts, which has ever been recognized as an efficient safeguard against injustice; and though the prohibition is not applied in terms to the government of the United States, he expressed the opinion, speaking for himself and the majority of the court at the time, that it was clear 'that those who framed and those who adopted the Constitution intended that the spirit of this prohibition should pervade the entire body of legislation, and that the justice which the Constitution was ordained to establish was not thought by them to be compatible with legislation [or judicial precedent] of an opposite tendency.' 8 Wall. 623. [99 U.S. 700, 765]  Similar views are found expressed in the opinions of other judges of this court."
[Sinking Fund Cases, 99 U.S. 700 (1878)]

"A state can no more impair the obligation of a contract by her organic law [constitution] than by legislative enactment; for her constitution is a law within the meaning of the contract clause of the national constitution. Railroad Co. v. [115 U.S. 650, 673]   McClure, 10 Wall. 511; Ohio Life Ins. & T. Co. v. Debolt, 16 How. 429; Sedg. St. & Const. Law, 637 And the obligation of her contracts is as fully protected by that instrument against impairment by legislation as are contracts between individuals exclusively. State v. Wilson, 7 Cranch, 164; Providence Bank v. Billings, 4 Pet. 514; Green v. Biddle, 8 Wheat. 1; Woodruff v. Trapnall, 10 How. 190; Wolff v. New Orleans, 103 U.S. 358 ."
[New Orleans Gas Company v. Louisiana Light Company, 115 U.S. 650 (1885)]

"From the differences existing between feudal sovereignties and Government founded on compacts [public contracts called Constitutions], it necessarily follows that their respective prerogatives must differ.  Sovereignty is the right to govern; a nation or State-sovereign is the person or persons in whom that resides. In Europe the sovereignty is generally ascribed to the Prince; here it rests with the people; there, the sovereign actually administers the Government; here, never in a single instance; our Governors are the agents of the people, and at most stand in the same relation to their sovereign, in which regents in Europe stand to their sovereigns. Their Princes have personal powers, dignities, and pre-eminences, our rulers have none but official; nor do they [public servants] partake in the sovereignty [of "We the People"] otherwise, or in any other capacity, than as private citizens."
[Chisholm, Ex'r. v. Georgia, 2 Dall. (U.S.) 419, 1 L.ed. 454, 457, 471, 472) (1794)]

This website is located outside of the legislative jurisdiction of the United States federal government. The only thing it offers is copyrighted religious educational materials that are:

  1. Entirely of educational and First Amendment nature.
  2. Religious statements and beliefs that are not factual or actionable in any manner and are not admissible as evidence pursuant to Fed.Rul.Ev. 610.
  3. Intended to warn the people about corruption in their government, the legal profession, and the courts and what God says in PDF His Law that we can and should do to stop it and prevent being harmed by it.
  4. Intended ONLY for use in PDF Petitioning the Government for a Redress of Grievances under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  This is a protected right.
  5. Intended to educate and empower people, and to minimize harm to the reader.  Our definition of "harm" in that context defines God's eternal wrath because of our disobedience to PDF His Law to be far more damaging than any court or jail could temporarily inflict on any man for disobeying an unjust earthly and vain law.  This view of the definition of "harm" is part of the foundation of our sincerely held religious convictions which are further explained in the Holy Bible.  If you want to know the consequences of violating God's law, read Deuteronomy 27:11-26, Deuteronomy 28:15-68.  Certainly the harm described in these passages far outweighs any court sentence that any judge could ever meet out.  Therefore, the lesser harm results by people obeying God's law when there is a conflict between God's law and man's law.  Since the ONLY purpose of both law and government are to prevent harm (see Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302, sections 3.3 and 4.3.4), then courts of justice must hold God's laws in higher regard than man's laws within the context of the religious individual in cases where there are conflicts of law between man's and God's laws.

  10. Not subject to tax laws or government regulation because related entirely to religious practice and expression, which is a protected right
  11. Not derived from privileged or licensed "foreign commerce" under 26 U.S.C. 7001.  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302, section 5.2.11.
  12. Not connected with a "trade or business in the United States", which means donations to the ministry are not "income" (corporate profit) derived from the U.S. government in connection with a "public office".  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302, section 5.6.13.

All those connected to the ministry consist entirely of "nonresidents" (relative to the federal zone), and statutory "non-resident non-persons" who are "nontaxpayers" not subject to the Internal Revenue Code and not engaged in a "trade or business".  Our Member Agreement does not allow any of the following to use our materials in their interactions with third parties in the government, courts, or legal profession or to be Members in Good Standing:  "U.S. citizens", "residents"/"aliens", "U.S. persons", or "taxpayers" under either federal law or the Internal Revenue Code.  SEDM is a non-profit religious fellowship and association that is against government registration, enumeration, or regulation efforts directed against religious institutions. This, we believe, simply compromises separation of church and state and gives the government undue influence over churches that stifles their First Amendment rights and compromises their independence.

Our society would be less than true to its heritage if it lacked abiding concern for the values of its young people, and we acknowledge the profound belief of adherents to many faiths that there must be a place in the student's life for precepts of a morality higher even than the law we today enforce. We express no hostility to those aspirations, nor would our oath permit us to do so. A relentless and all-pervasive attempt to exclude religion from every aspect of public life could itself become inconsistent with the Constitution. See Abington School District, supra, at 306 (Goldberg, J., concurring).

[. . .]

Nearly half a century of review and refinement of Establishment Clause jurisprudence has distilled one clear understanding: Government may neither promote nor affiliate itself with any religious doctrine or organization, nor may it obtrude itself in the internal affairs of any religious institution. The application of these principles to the present case mandates the decision reached today by the Court.

The mixing of government and religion can be a threat to free government, even if no one is forced to participate. When the government puts its imprimatur on a particular religion, it conveys a message of exclusion to all those who do not adhere to the favored beliefs.{9} A government cannot [505 U.S. 607] be premised on the belief that all persons are created equal when it asserts that God prefers some. Only "[a]nguish, hardship and bitter strife" result "when zealous religious groups struggl[e] with one another to obtain the Government's stamp of approval." Engel, 370 U.S. at 429; see also Lemon, 403 U.S. at 622-623; Aguilar v. Felton, 473 U.S. 402, 416 (1985) (Powell, J., concurring).{10} Such a struggle can "strain a political system to the breaking point." Walz v. Tax Commission, 397 U.S. 664, 694 (1970) (opinion of Harlan, J.).

When the government arrogates to itself a role in religious affairs, it abandons its obligation as guarantor of democracy. Democracy requires the nourishment of dialogue and dissent, while religious faith puts its trust in an ultimate divine authority above all human deliberation. When the government appropriates religious truth, it "transforms rational debate into theological decree." Nuechterlein, Note, The Free Exercise Boundaries of Permissible Accommodation Under the Establishment Clause, 99 Yale L.J. 1127, 1131 (1990). Those who disagree no longer are questioning the policy judgment of the elected but the rules of a higher authority who is beyond reproach. [505 U.S. 608]

Madison warned that government officials who would use religious authority to pursue secular ends

exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are Tyrants. The People who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them, and are slaves.

Memorial and Remonstrance against Religious Assessments (1785) in The Complete Madison 300 (S. Padover, ed.1953). Democratic government will not last long when proclamation replaces persuasion as the medium of political exchange.

Likewise, we have recognized that "[r]eligion flourishes in greater purity, without than with the aid of Gov[ernment]."{11} Id. at 309. To "make room for as wide a variety of beliefs and creeds as the spiritual needs of man deem necessary," Zorach v. Clauson, 343 U.S. 306, 313 (1952), the government must not align itself with any one of them. When the government favors a particular religion or sect, the disadvantage to all others is obvious, but even the favored religion may fear being "taint[ed] . . . with a corrosive secularism." Grand Rapids School Dist. v. Ball, 473 U.S. 373, 385 (1985). The favored religion may be compromised as political figures reshape the religion's beliefs for their own purposes; it may be reformed as government largesse brings government regulation.{12} Keeping religion in the hands of private groups minimizes state intrusion on religious choice, and best enables each religion to "flourish according to the [505 U.S. 609] zeal of its adherents and the appeal of its dogma." Zorach, 343 U.S. at 313.

It is these understandings and fears that underlie our Establishment Clause jurisprudence. We have believed that religious freedom cannot exist in the absence of a free democratic government, and that such a government cannot endure when there is fusion between religion and the political regime. We have believed that religious freedom cannot thrive in the absence of a vibrant religious community, and that such a community cannot prosper when it is bound to the secular. And we have believed that these were the animating principles behind the adoption of the Establishment Clause. To that end, our cases have prohibited government endorsement of religion, its sponsorship, and active involvement in religion, whether or not citizens were coerced to conform.
[Lee v. Weisman, 505 U.S. 577 (1992)]

SEDM therefore cannot and will not allow the government to register or enumerate it or seek any kind of government recognized 501(c )(3), "non-profit", or "charitable organization" status, nor will allow itself to be discriminated against by government because it refuses to do any of these things.

"And have no fellowship [or association] with the unfruitful works of [government] darkness, but rather reprove [rebuke and expose] them." 
[Eph. 5:11, Bible, NKJV]

“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law [man's law].” 
[Gal. 5:18, Bible, NKJV]

Shall the throne of iniquity [the U.S. Congress and the federal judiciary], which devises evil by [obfuscating the] law [to expand their jurisdiction and consolidate all economic power in their hands by taking it away from the states], have fellowship with You?  They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood [of "nontaxpayers" and persons outside their jurisdiction, which is an act of extortion and racketeering].  But the Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge.  He has brought on them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God [and those who obey Him and His word] shall cut them off [from power and from receiving illegal bribes cleverly disguised by an obfuscated law as legitimate "taxes"].” 
[Psalm 94:20-23, Bible, NKJV.  QUESTION FOR DOUBTERS:  Who else BUT Congress and the judiciary can devise "evil by law"?]

"Come out from among them [the unbelievers and government idolaters]
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean
,
And I will receive you.
I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be my sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty." 
[2 Corinthians 6:17-18, Bible, NKJV]

"Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: 'The Lord knows those who are His,' and, 'Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from [not associate with] wickedness [wherever it is found, and especially in government].' " 
[2 Tim. 2:19, Bible, NKJV]

"A state-created orthodoxy [imposed through illegal enforcement or even involuntary enforcement of the revenue "codes" against religious institutions] puts at grave risk that freedom of belief and conscience which are the sole assurance that religious faith is real, not imposed."
[Lee v. Weisman, 505 U.S. 577 (1992)]

Any effort to regulate or tax us as a religious ministry amounts to "compelled association" with the government in violation of the First Amendment.

"...The constitutional rights of those spreading their religious beliefs through the spoken and printed word are not to be gauged by standards governing retailers or wholesalers of books. The right to use the press for expressing one's views is not to be measured by the protection afforded commercial handbills. It should be remembered that the pamphlets of Thomas Paine were not distributed free of charge. It is plain that a religious organization needs funds to remain a going concern. But an itinerant evangelist, however misguided or intolerant he may be, does not become a mere book agent by selling the Bible or religious tracts to help defray his expenses or to sustain him. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion are available to all, not merely to those who can pay their own way. . ."
[Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105 (1943)]

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Just as there is freedom to speak, to associate, and to believe, so also there is freedom not to speak, associate, or believe.  "The right to speak and the right to refrain from speaking [on a government tax return, and in violation of the Fifth Amendment when coerced, for instance] are complementary components of the broader concept of 'individual freedom of mind.''  Wooley v. Maynard [430 U.S. 703] (1977).  Freedom of conscience dictates that no individual may be forced to espouse ideological causes with which he disagrees:

"[A]t the heart of the First Amendment is the notion that the individual should be free to believe as he will, and that in a free society one's beliefs should be shaped by his mind and by his conscience rather than coerced by the State [through illegal enforcement of the revenue laws]."   Abood v. Detroit Board of Education [431 U.S. 209] (1977)

Freedom from compelled association is a vital component of freedom of expression.  Indeed, freedom from compelled association illustrates the significance of the liberty or personal autonomy model of the First Amendment As a general constitutional principle, it is for the individual and not for the state to choose one's associations and to define the persona which he holds out to the world.
[First Amendment Law in a Nutshell , Barron-Dienes, West Publishing, ISBN 0-314-22677-X, pp. 266-267]

Not only is such compelled association in conflict with the First Amendment, but it also is a sin, and violates God's laws and our sincerely held religious beliefs.  According to Jesus, we cannot serve two masters: God and government, at the same time.

"No servant [or religious ministry or biological person] can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [government]."
[Luke 16:13, Bible, NKJV]

We as a ministry can only serve God and NOT government.  To serve and obey anyone or anything other than exclusively God is to violate our private contract/covenant/oath with Him in the Bible.

"The doctrine is, that allegiance cannot be due to two sovereigns [God v. Government]; and taking an oath of allegiance to a new, is the strongest evidence of withdrawing allegiance from a previous, sovereign….” 
[Talbot v. Janson, 3 U.S. 133 (1795); From the sylabus but not the opinion; SOURCE: http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/search/display.html?terms=choice%20or%20conflict%20and%20law&url=/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0003_0133_ZS.html ]


“And now, Israel [believers/Christians], what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways [by obeying PDF His Holy Laws] and to love Him, to serve [ONLY] the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good? Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord your God, also the earth with all that is in it. The Lord delighted only in your fathers, to love them; and He chose their descendants after them, you above all peoples, as it is this day. Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.   He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing. Therefore love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. You shall fear [ONLY] the  Lord your God; you shall serve [ONLY] Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name. He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen. Your fathers went down to Egypt with seventy persons, and now the Lord your God has made you as the stars of heaven in multitude. 
[Deut. 10:12-22, Bible, NKJV]


"God is a jealous God (compare Ex 20:5; 34:14; Deut 32:16; Zech 8:2; I Cor 10:22), and hence he will not tolerate divided allegiance."
[Pfeiffer, C. F., & Harrison, E. F. 1962. The Wycliffe Bible commentary : New Testament . Moody Press: Chicago; Commentary on James 4:5]

There is no conflict with civil authority in choosing this hierarchy of allegiance, because God's laws call for us to love our neighbor so we aren't therefore allowed to harm him.  It is impossible for a faithful Christian to be a BAD citizen.  Since the only legitimate purpose of civil government is to prevent harm, civil government would quickly become superfluous and unnecessary if everyone religiously obeyed only God's laws.  That is why the Bible says:

He [God] brings the princes [and Kings and Presidents] to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.
[Isaiah 40:23, Bible, NKJV]

To not worship and serve and obey ONLY God and His perfect laws would be to risk losing our salvation and violating our sacred covenant/contract with God.  No government has the authority to order us to violate such a contract/covenant.

“Away with you , Satan!  For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him ONLY [NOT the government!] you shall serve [with your labor or your earnings from labor].’”
[Jesus in Matt. 4:10, Bible, NKJV ]

“You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men [and remember that governments are made up exclusively of men].” 
[1 Cor. 7:23, Bible, NKJV]

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage [to the government or the income tax or the IRS or federal statutes that are not "positive law" and do not have jurisdiction over us]." 
[Galatians 5:1, Bible, NKJV]

Sovereignty and salvation on the one hand, and being subject to government extortion or censorship or regulation, on the other hand, are mutually exclusive for any religious undertaking.  We can't function as a ministry with such conflicting allegiances and conflict of interest without violating both God's and Man's laws simultaneously.

“In the general course of human nature, A POWER OVER A MAN’s [or a ministry's] SUBSISTENCE [including through involuntary or illegal  taxation] AMOUNTS TO A POWER OVER HIS WILL.”

[Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Paper No. 79]

Any other approach to income taxation, if not entirely consensual, amounts to slavery (OFFSITE LINK), which violates the Thirteenth Amendment (OFFSITE LINK) prohibition against "involuntary servitude".  The Constitution's clauses on taxation (OFFSITE LINK) and slavery (OFFSITE LINK) cannot contradict each other or absurdity and chaos will result.  The purpose of law is to bring order, not chaos, and the Constitution is law. 

"And the Constitution itself is in every real sense a law-the lawmakers being the people themselves, in whom under our system all political power and sovereignty primarily resides, and through whom such power and sovereignty primarily speaks. It is by that law, and not otherwise, that the legislative, executive, and judicial agencies which it created exercise such political authority as they have been permitted [by WE THE PEOPLE] to possess. The Constitution speaks for itself in terms so plain that to misunderstand their import is not rationally possible. 'We the People of the United States,' it says, 'do ordain and establish this Constitution.' Ordain and establish! These are definite words of enactment, and without more would stamp what follows with the dignity and character of law. The framers of the Constitution, however, were not content to let the matter rest here, but provided explicitly-'This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; ... shall be the supreme Law of the Land.' (Const. art. 6, cl. 2.) The supremacy of the Constitution as law is thus declared without qualification. That supremacy is absolute; the supremacy of a statute enacted by Congress is not absolute but conditioned upon its being made in pursuance of the Constitution. "
[Carter v. Carter Coal Co., 298 U.S. 238 (1936)]

Involuntary taxation or regulation of anything that is not demonstrably harmful to the public also violates the Declaration of Independence, which says that all just powers of government derive from the CONSENT of the governed.  Education and public discourse can NEVER be harmful, not only because the First Amendment says so, but also because the Supreme Court says so. 

"This court has not yet fixed the standard by which to determine when a danger shall be deemed clear; how remote the danger may be and yet be deemed present; and what degree of evil shall be deemed sufficiently substantial to justify resort to abridgment of free speech and assembly as the means of protection. To reach sound conclusions on these matters, we must bear in mind why a state is, ordinarily, denied the power to prohibit dissemination of social, economic and political doctrine which a vast majority of its citizens believes to be false and fraught with evil consequence. [274 U.S. 357, 375]   Those who won our independence believed that the final end of the state was to make men free to develop their faculties, and that in its government the deliberative forces should prevail over the arbitrary. They valued liberty both as an end and as a means. They believed liberty to the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty. They believed that freedom to think as you will and to speak [and educate] as you think are means indispensable to the discovery and spread of political truth; that without free speech and assembly discussion would be futile; that with them, discussion affords ordinarily adequate protection against the dissemination of noxious doctrine; that the greatest menace to freedom is an inert people; that public discussion [and education] is a political duty; and that this should be a fundamental principle of the American government. 3 They recognized the risks to which all human institutions are subject. But they knew that order cannot be secured merely through fear of punishment for its infraction; that it is hazardous to discourage thought, hope and imagination; that fear breeds repression; that repression breeds hate; that hate menaces stable government; that the path of safety lies in the opportunity to discuss [and educate other people about] freely supposed grievances and proposed remedies; and that the fitting remedy for evil counsels is good ones. Believing in the power of reason as applied through public discussion, they eschewed silence [274 U.S. 357, 376]   coerced by law [or a corrupted government]-the argument of force in its worst form. Recognizing the occasional tyrannies of governing majorities, they amended the Constitution so that free speech and assembly should be guaranteed.
[Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)]

In a free country where liberty prevails over tyranny, anything not consensual and entirely and explicitly voluntary is unjust.  Period.  We either have government by consent or we have a terrorist government.  There is no middle ground on this issue, and Thomas Jefferson agreed with this by his words in the Declaration of Independence.  One cannot be half pregnant or half free.  Neither can consent be "assumed" or "presumed", but must continually be proven with evidence IN WRITING explicitly and by informed consent, or it should be presumed NOT to exist at all.  This is the essence of living in a country whose system of jurisprudence requires being "presumed" innocent until proven guilty by a preponderance of admissible evidence.

"Waivers of Constitutional Rights not only must be voluntary [explicitly consensual], they must be knowingly intelligent [and fully informed and fully educated] acts, done with sufficient awareness of the relevant circumstances and consequences." 
[Brady v. U.S., 397 U.S. 742 (1970)]

By following God's calling to create a ministry to educate people about what they are agreeing or consenting to in filling out government forms, we are simply ensuring that the consent of the Sovereign People to participate in the municipal donation program for the District of Columbia (national) government that is deceitfully called a federal "tax" by our covetous public servants is fully informed and therefore truly and entirely voluntary as the Supreme Court requires.

“Our system of taxation is based upon voluntary assessment and payment, not distraint.”
[Flora v. U.S.,  362 U.S. 145 (1960)]

Nothing can be called "voluntary" which is backed up by any kind of enforcement powers, and in fact, PDF the IRS has absolutely no enforcement powers against human beings under Part 1 of the Treasury Regulations for Title 26 other than those who are instrumentalities of the government.  We can't have a voluntary system so long as the IRS goes out illegally terrorizing and persecuting or deceiving those people and organizations in a foreign state (states of the Union) who educate others about the fact that they can choose NOT to "volunteer" to become "taxpayers".  In fact, the only persons which the IRS can lawfully enforce against are ONLY federal "employees" (OFFSITE LINK), instrumentalities, and "public officers" who are "effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States", for which no implementing regulations are required, as revealed in 44 U.S.C. 1505(a) and 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2).  See our pamphlet "Why Your Government is Either a Thief or you are a 'public official' for Income Tax Purposes" for details.

  1. Why doesn't the Congress and the federal judiciary quit pretending like the Internal Revenue Code is "law" that people in states of the Union have an obligation to obey?  PDF It has been REPEALED since 1939 and yet they continue to deceive people by calling it "law".  This is a LIE, at least in the context of those who do not maintain a physical domicile anywhere within the District of Columbia or the federal zone, which includes most Americans born within and living within states of the Union.  See and rebut Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK) sections 5.4 through 5.4.3.6 for exhaustive proof of the scam.
  2. Why won't the IRS quit pretending that Subtitle A of the Internal Revenue Code is a direct unapportioned tax in the case of people living in states of the Union?  They have taken great pains to deceive people by hiding the fact that Subtitle A in fact is an indirect excise tax on privileges and that the taxable activity in most cases is that of a "trade or business" (OFFSITE LINK).  When is this kind of deceit and obfuscation going to end?  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK), section 5.6.15 for details.  Click here for an article on this subject.
  3. Why won't the IRS quit pretending like people who are not subject to federal jurisdiction domiciled in constitutional states of the Union are all federal "employees (OFFSITE LINK) and "public officers", which they obviously know is fraud and which even the compelled and involuntary submission of a W-4 form doesn't prove?  PDF Click here for details.

  5. Why must it terrorize, threaten, propagandize, and lie to nonfederal businesses and financial institutions who are outside its jurisdiction using it's publications and by sending out fraudulent securities called a "Notice of Levies" and "Notice of Lien" to county recorders and employers to "enlist" them as its voluntary enforcement agents?  Why won't the SEC demonstrate "equal protection of the laws" by prosecuting this kind of deliberate securities fraud?  These fraudulent assessments are sold on the open market as "securities" by the government and this is a disgraceful sham.
  6. Why must it abuse its authority by creating PDF false presumptions on its forms that people are "taxpayers" (OFFSITE LINK), "U.S. citizens" (OFFSITE LINK), and reside within federal jurisdiction, when none of these facts are actually true in most cases?  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK), sections 4.6 through 4.10 and Chapter 5 for further details.
  7. Why is it that the IRS is not required by the federal judiciary to obey the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by providing original proof of a debt, which in this case is a valid, procedurally correct, lawfully executed assessment document signed under penalty of perjury as required by 26 U.S.C. 6065, to the public immediately when demanded?  Why does the IRS continually violate 26 U.S.C. 6020(b) by doing involuntary assessments against human beings living in states of the Union and in violation of the Constitution?  Why do they do "correspondence audits" that "propose an assessment" and then ignore "nontaxpayers" who respond by refusing to consent to the proposal and thereby making the proposal final?  PDF Click here for more evidence of this MASSIVE fraud.
  8. Why can't the IRS and the government follow the same rules as everyone else by getting the signature of a judge and an abstract of judgment from a state (not federal) court that is outside its jurisdiction in order to procure monies from others under the authority of a law that it insists exists but which in fact doesn't? Doesn't equal protection of the laws DEMAND this?  Isn't equal protection of the laws the foundation of all free governments?

The answer to all the above questions is that your public dis-servants love (covet) money, and the power and control and the tyranny it produces more than they love Truth, justice, morality, protecting your rights, or God:

"The love of [your] money is the root of all [government] evil." 
[1 Tim. 6:10, Bible, NKJV]

Ayn Rand put it best, when she said in her book Atlas Shrugged about the subject of money, and the PDF requirement for consent, honesty, and integrity by government in any and every endeavor:

"Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading [or religious ministry, for that matter] is done, not by consent, but by [government] compulsion [or regulation]--when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men [in the government] who produce nothing--when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in [political] favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull ["extortion under the color of law"] than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them [the government], but protect them [the government] against you--when you see corruption being rewarded [by a corrupted federal judiciary] and honesty [and hard work, and personal responsibility] becoming a self-sacrifice--you may know that your society is doomed[!]. Money is so noble a medium that it does not compete with guns and it does not make terms with brutality. It will not permit a country to survive as half-property, half-loot.

"Whenever destroyers [the IRS, the Federal Reserve, and the Dept of Justice] appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers [in the Federal Reserve] seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of [fiat] paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values [a corrupted government, in this case]. Gold was [and continues to be] an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed [by a tyrant judge with a conflict of interest] at those who are expected to produce it. Paper [Federal Reserve Notes] is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it becomes, marked: 'Account overdrawn.'

"When you have made evil [government looting through constructive fraud, obfuscation and complication of the tax laws, and through socialist/humanist tax system that rewards and subsidizes laziness, irresponsibility, and government dependency and punishes and taxes success] the means of survival, do not expect men to remain good. Do not expect them to stay moral and lose their lives for the purpose of becoming the fodder of the immoral [government parasites]. Do not expect them to produce, when production is punished and [government] looting rewarded. Do not ask, 'Who is destroying the world?' You are [by doing NOTHING to correct the corruption or by accepting ANY of the stolen loot in the form of a government handout/bribe]."
[Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, p. 387]

By making the above statement, Ms Rand is emphasizing that there is no more important area where government honesty and integrity is necessary than in the way government handles money and commerce (OFFSITE LINK).  A government that mishandles or covets money and steals it is a bad government that is intent on destroying, not protecting, society. 

"The king [or public servant] establishes the land by justice; but he who receives bribes [socialist handouts] overthrows it." 
[Prov. 29:4, Bible, NKJV]


“Getting treasures [stolen loot] by a lying tongue
Is the fleeting fantasy of those who seek death.
The violence of the wicked will destroy them,
Because they refuse to do justice.”
[Prov. 21:6-7, Bible, NKJV]

God says in the Bible that deceit in commerce, and by implication taxation as well, is the thing He hates most.  What God hates, we are also supposed to hate as Christians, and notice the thing that is being hated is not a person, but an evil and unlawful behavior that violates PDF God's laws and/or man's laws.  Below is an explanation of precisely why God hates deceit in commerce so vehemently and why ultimately, those who openly and willfully practice it are going to HELL, based on commentary relating to the Prov. 11:1, 10:10, 20:23 found in the Bible:

"As religion towards God is a branch of universal righteousness (he is not an honest man that is not devout), so righteousness towards men is a branch of true religion, for he is not a godly man that is not honest, nor can he expect that his devotion should be accepted; for,

1. Nothing is more offensive to God than deceit in commerce. A false balance is here put for all manner of unjust and fraudulent practices [of our public dis-servants] in dealing with any person [within the public], which are all an abomination to the Lord, and render those abominable [hated] to him that allow themselves in the use of such accursed arts of thriving. It is an affront to justice, which God is the patron of, as well as a wrong to our neighbour, whom God is the protector of. Men [in government] make light of such frauds, and think there is no sin in that which there is money to be got by, and, while it passes undiscovered, they cannot blame themselves for it; a blot is no blot till it is hit, Hos. 12:7, 8. But they are not the less an abomination to God, who will be the avenger of those that are defrauded by their brethren.

2. Nothing is more pleasing to God than fair and honest dealing, nor more necessary to make us and our devotions acceptable to him: A just weight is his delight. He himself goes by a just weight, and holds the scale of judgment with an even hand, and therefore is pleased with those that are herein followers of him.

A [false] balance, [whether it be in the federal courtroom or in the government or in the marketplace,] cheats, under pretence of doing right most exactly, and therefore is the greater abomination to God."
[Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible; Henry, M., 1996, c1991, under Prov. 11:1]

See our memorandum of law entitled PDF Requirement for Consent, Form #05.003 for further details on the explicit, informed, deliberate requirement for written consent in all free governments, and ESPECIALLY in the context of taxation and commerce. God commands us to hate evil, and if deceit in commerce is what He hates most, then we as Christians are to act and do similarly by exposing, opposing, and fixing it.  We can't love God and not hate His opposite or His complete absence, which is what evil is.  We can't love our neighbor as God commands in Gal. 5:14 and not hate the actions of a dishonest and covetous public servant who willfully and intentionally deceives, robs, and hurts our neighbor with no demonstrated lawful authority and no concern for even what the law says on the subject.  We can't hypocritically go out and invade other countries like Iraq and Afghanistan on the pretense that we are fighting terrorism and defending "freedom" (what a joke!) and still have a group of terrorist public servants running our own government here at home that completely disrespects and tries to hide the requirement for explicit consent of the people in every aspect of governance and taxation. If you want some examples of how our public dis-servants chronically and willfully violate and hide and avoid the requirement for informed consent, read Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 sections 4.3.2 through 4.3.2.9.  That is NOT equal protection of the laws: It's tyranny and terrorism cleverly and deceitfully and willfully disguised as government benevolence!

Terrorism definition

Original (pre-Orwellian) Definition of  the Word "Terrorism" 
Funk and Wagnalls New  Practical Standard Dictionary (1946)

Our troops might be better utilized by fighting federal government terrorism (and democracy instead of republicanism) emanating from what Mark Twain calls the District of Criminals (District of Columbia), not Iraq.  PDF Hate of evil (but not people) perpetrated by public servants who are violating our Constitution, federal law, and God's law IS a family and even a Christian value

“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God [synonymous with hate evil] , to walk in all His ways [laws in the Bible] and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes [laws] which I command you today for your good?
[Deut. 10:12-13, Bible, NKJV]

“You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.”
[Psalm 97:10, Bible, NKJV]

“An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous: and he who is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.”
[Prov 29:27, Bible, NKJV]

“The boastful shall not stand in your sight: You hate all workers of iniquity.”
[Psalm 5:5, Bible, NKJV]

“Through Your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way."
[Psalm 119:104 , Bible, NKJV]

“Let us hear the conclusion of this whole matter:  Fear [respect] God and keep His commandments [laws in the Bible], for this is man’s all.  For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”
[Eccl. 12:13-14, Bible, NKJV]

“By humility and fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life.”
[Prov. 22:4, Bible, NKJV]

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.”
[Proverbs 8:13, Bible, NKJV]

“Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; for surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off.”
[Prov. 23:17, Bible, NKJV]

“Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?  And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?  I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.
[Psalm 139:21-22, Bible, NKJV]

“I hate and abhor lying, But I love Your law.”
[Psalm 119:163, Bible, NKJV]

A righteous man hates lying, But a wicked man is loathsome and comes to shame.”
[Prov. 13:5, Bible, NKJV]

"Hate of evil" is the essence of morality and morality is the essence of religion.  A religion without "hate of evil" is not a religion at all, but a vain social club.  God hates the sin but He loves the sinner and we are commanded to be like God.  Obedience to God's law by "hating evil", in fact, is the essence of what "religious practice" means and the essence of what the First Amendment's "free exercise" clause was intended to protect.  Consequently, HATE of evil, in fact, is a protected religious practice under the First Amendment and the essence of how we worship, reverence, respect, and obey our mighty God, according to the Bible.  "Hating evil" is the essence of what is called "police powers" in the legal field.  Police powers are the essence and authority for all earthly laws and the reason why people create governments to begin with: the desire for protection.  "Hating evil", in fact, is what governments, the police, and the justice system have made a profession out of. If they, as our servants can do it, then we as the sovereigns and their Masters can do it.

Anyone who criticizes the Christian virtue of "hating evil" is basically saying that we shouldn't have law, civil government, or law enforcement and that we shouldn't have religion at all. Indirectly, they are promoting anarchy and lawlessness. They are also saying that the Constitution contradicts itself and is redundant and unnecessary, because the sovereign People ("We the People") cannot delegate to government through a written Constitution an authority called "police powers" that they themselves don't have as individuals!  Those who slander Christians for trying to hate evil are also are biased and prejudiced, if they are going to say that atheists in government can "hate evil" under man's law while Christians can't hate evil under God's law.  That is not "equal protection of the laws", but anarchy and prejudice and hate deceptively disguised as an altruistic pursuit of "civil rights".  It is a devious way to rebel against God's Holy moral laws by interfering with their enforcement. It is mutiny against God that will ultimately land all of its followers in HELL. 

"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
[Rev. 20:11-15, Bible, NKJV ]

A society without "hate of evil" is like a body without an immune system, and our society right now has AIDS.  Our society is dying and self-destructing because of complacency towards evil in the government, which is AIDS.   A corrupted tax system is simply one of many symptoms of this pernicious disease that afflicts us.

"The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedients, and by parts ... the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing [or to trust dishonest or deceitful public servants to do the right thing]." 
[Edmund Burke]

"...the greatest menace to freedom is an inert [passive and uneducated] people [who refuse, as jurists and voters and active citizens, to expose and punish evil in the government]"
[Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)]

The violence of the wicked will destroy them [a free people] because they refuse to do justice [by exposing, rebuking, and resisting, and punishing evil]."
[Prov. 21:7, Micah 6:8]

"Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil [in the government] and he will flee from you."
[James 4:7, Bible, NKJV]

For the government to even define what a "religion" is would be to limit and interfere with it's free exercise under the First Amendment (OFFSITE LINK):

"A problem common to both religion clauses of the First Amendment is the dilemma of defining religion.  To define religion is in a sense to establish it--those beliefs that are included enjoy a preferred constitutional status.  For those left out of the definition, the definition may prove coercive." 
[First Amendment Law in a Nutshell, Barron-Dienes, West Publishing, ISBN 0-314-22677-X, p. 432]

The Bible confirms the above, where it says:

"Can you [a heathen lawyer with lust for power and money] search out [or comprehend or define] the deep things of God [in a statute or law]?
 Can you [in your finite and sinful existence] find out the limits of the [infinite and perfect] Almighty?"
[Job 11:17, Bible, NKJV]

My God does NOT live in YOUR legal box, Mr. Covetous and Atheistic Lawyer.  How can a FINITE mind of an unbelieving lawyer who hates and defies PDF God's Holy Laws define or even comprehend an INFINITE God or the religion and worship of those who serve this sovereign God?  They can't!  Because 501(c)(3) status requires that exercise of religion be defined by government and law and put inside a "legal box" and subject to state regulation and control, then it must be voluntary (OFFSITE LINK) and cannot be coerced, whether the coercion comes directly from the government or indirectly from financial institutions who are under illegal duress by the government to induct religious institutions into their jurisdiction and regulation by PDF compelling the use of government-issued identifying numbers.  The only moral authority any government can have is to protect those who are being harmed by others (see Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 (OFFSITE LINK), sections 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 ).  The supreme Court above already said in Meyer v. State of Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390 (1923) that religion and education and morality are to be promoted and not discouraged, because they can only do a person good and not harm.  Beyond it's only legitimate purpose of protecting people from harm by others, government has no moral or lawful authority to interfere with anyone's religious exercise and certainly not with this strictly educational religious ministry.

“Those who already walk submissively will say there is no cause for alarm.  But submissiveness is not our heritageThe First Amendment was designed to allow rebellion [especially towards government corruption and tyranny] to remain as our Heritage.  The Constitution was designed to keep the government [and especially the government, with their SLAVE SURVEILLANCE NUMBERS (SSNs)] off the backs of the people.  The Bill of Rights was added to keep the precincts of belief and expression, of the press, of political and social activities free from [government, and especially IRS] surveillance.  The Bill of Rights was designed to keep agents of government and official eavesdroppers [in the government] away from Assemblies of People.  The aim was to allow men to be free and independent to assert their rights against government.” 
[Laird v. Tatum, 408 U.S. 1; 92 S.Ct. 2318 (1972)]

Depriving liars (who lied on a W-4 by calling themselves federal "employees") called "taxpayers" of stolen loot and bribes deceptively labeled as "government benefits" cannot be classified as harm to the public either.  Payment of government benefits is not contractual, it is discretionary according to the Supreme Court.  Where there is no contract, there can be no breach of contract or harm.  See Fleming v. Nestor , 363 U.S. 603 (1960):

“We must conclude that a person covered by the Act has not such a right in benefit payments… This is not to say, however, that Congress may exercise its power to modify the statutory scheme free of all constitutional restraint.” 
[Fleming v. Nestor, 363 U.S. 603 (1960)]

Therefore, payment to the government for these so-called "benefits" through income taxation cannot be contractual either.  The government CANNOT compel people to participate in bribery and theft cleverly disguised using "words of art" to appear like lawful taxation.  Equal protection of the laws guaranteed by Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment (OFFSITE LINK) demands this.  Not only that, but anyone who takes out anything more than exactly what they put in, is a THIEF if anyone was compelled to participate against their will!  The Bible says that all such thieves MUST be forced to pay back DOUBLE what they stole to the victims of the theft:

"If a man [the government, in this case] delivers to his neighbor [a citizen, in this case] money or articles to keep, and it is stolen out of the man's house [our out of his paycheck], if the thief is found, he shall pay double.  If the thief is not found, then the master of the house shall be brought to the judges to see whether he has put his hand into his neighbor's goods.” 
[Exodus 22:7-8, Bible, NKJV]

The "victim" of the theft, in this case, are all the "nontaxpayers" who never wanted to participate in this bankrupt humanistic/socialist (OFFSITE LINK) tax and welfare-state system to begin with.  According to the Treasury Financial Management website (OFFSITE LINK) statistics, over 56% of all federal revenues go to pay for socialism and wealth transfer, both of which are forbidden by the Constitution and the supreme court and the Bible.

Below is what the Supreme Court and the Bible and other authorities say on this subject of ILLEGAL, state-sponsored socialism of this nature:

"To lay, with one hand, the power of the government on the property of the citizen, and with the other to bestow it upon favored individuals to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes, is none the less a robbery because it is done under the forms of law and is called taxation.  This is not legislation.  It is a decree under legislative forms.

Nor is it taxation.  ‘A tax,’ says Webster’s Dictionary, ‘is a rate or sum of money assessed on the person or property of a citizen by government for the use of the nation or State.’  ‘Taxes are burdens or charges imposed by the Legislature upon persons or property to raise money for public purposes.’  Cooley, Const. Lim., 479.
[Loan Association v. Topeka, 20 Wall. 655 (1874)]

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

"A tax, in the general understanding of the term and as used in the constitution, signifies an exaction for the support of the government. The word has never thought to connote the expropriation of money from one group [the working or the rich] for the benefit of another [the poor, the retired, or the unemployed]."  
[U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. William M. Butler, 297 U.S. 1 (1936)]


"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship."
[Alexander Fraser Tyler]


“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure [unearned money from the government] that war in your members [and your democratic governments]? You lust [after other people's money] and do not have. You murder [the unborn to increase your standard of living] and covet [the unearned] and cannot obtain [except by empowering your government to STEAL for you!]. You fight and war [against the rich and the nontaxpayers to subsidize your idleness]. Yet you do not have because you do not ask [the Lord, but instead ask the deceitful government]. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world [or the governments of the world] is enmity with God?  Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world [or the governments of the world] makes himself an enemy of God.”
[James 4:4 , Bible, NKJV]


“Here I close my opinion.  I could not say less in view of questions of such gravity that they go down to the very foundations of the government.  If the provisions of the Constitution can be set aside by an act of Congress, where is the course of usurpation to end?

The present assault upon capital [THEFT! and WEALTH TRANSFER by unconstitutional taxation] is but the beginning.  It will be but the stepping stone to others larger and more sweeping, until our political contest will become war of the poor against the rich; a war of growing intensity and bitterness.”   
[Supreme Court in Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan & Trust Co., 157 U.S. 429, 158 U.S. 601 (1895), hearing the case against the first income tax passed by Congress that included people in states of the Union.  They declared that first income tax UNCONSTITUTIONAL, by the way]

This unlawful abuse of government power to STEAL is not only morally wrong and illegal, but it is completely inconsistent with the legislative intent of the Constitution, and the passage of no amount of time can alter the legislative intent of the Constitution.  Courts are bound to interpret the Constitution based solely on what it says and the legislative intent existing at the time it was enacted.  Instead, they commit Treason punishable by DEATH (18 U.S.C. 2381) by stealthily "redefining" the words in the original Constitution to mean what they want them to mean using judge-made law so as to suit "public policy" rather than legislative intent.  The Ten Commandments (OFFSITE LINK) say "Thou shalt not steal."  They don't say "Thou shalt not steal UNLESS you are the government." 

"Don't steal.  Your public servants hate competition."


"In Calder v. Bull, which was here in 1798, Mr. Justice Chase said, that there were acts which the Federal and State legislatures could not do without exceeding their authority, and among them he mentioned a law which punished a citizen for an innocent act; a law that destroyed or impaired the lawful private [labor] contracts [and labor compensation, e.g. earnings from employment through compelled W-4 withholding] of citizens; a law that made a man judge in his own case; and a law that took the property from A [the worker]. and gave it to B [the government or another citizen, such as through social welfare programs]. 'It is against all reason and justice,' he added, 'for a people to intrust a legislature with such powers, and therefore it cannot be presumed that they have done it. They may command what is right and prohibit what is wrong; but they cannot change innocence into guilt, or punish innocence as a crime, or violate the right of an antecedent lawful private [employment] contract [by compelling W-4 withholding, for instance], or the right of private property. To maintain that a Federal or State legislature possesses such powers [of THEFT!] if they had not been expressly restrained, would, in my opinion, be a political heresy altogether inadmissible in all free republican governments.' 3 Dall. 388."
[Sinking Fund Cases, 99 U.S. 700 (1878)]

Any entity that can break the Ten Commandments (OFFSITE LINK) and not suffer the same punishment under the law as everyone else in a society based on equal protection of the laws (OFFSITE LINK) is a false god and an idol (OFFSITE LINK), and the Ten commandments (OFFSITE LINK) make idolatry not only a sin, but the WORST kind of sin punishable by death.  Any misguided individual who tolerates, participates in, subsidizes, or votes in favor of this type of lawlessness and criminal activity on the part of the government is committing treason and also is violating the second great commandment to love his neighbor.

"Come out from among them [the unbelievers, idolaters, and thieves]
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch [associate with or subsidize] what is unclean
,
And I will receive you.
I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be my sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty." 
[2 Corinthians 6:17-18, Bible, NKJV]

You don't STEAL from someone you love, and neither do honorable or respectable members of society tolerate, benefit from, subsidize, or condone government servants who do the stealing either.

“Objections to its [the income tax] renewal are long, loud, and general throughout the country.  Those who pay are the exception, those who do not pay are millions; the whole moral force of the law is a dead letter.  The honest man makes a true return; the dishonest hides and covers all he can to avoid this obnoxious tax.  It has no moral force.  This tax is unequal, perjury-provoking and crime encouraging, because it is a war with the right of a person to keep private and regulate his business affairs and financial matters.  Deception, fraud, and falsehood mark its progress everywhere in the process of collection.  It creates curiosity, jealousy, and prejudice among the people.  It makes the tax-gatherer a spy…The people demand that it shall not be renewed, but left to die a natural death and pass away into the future as pass away all the evils growing out of the Civil War.” 
[Congressional Globe, 41st Congress, 2d Session, p. 3993 (1870)]

The main and perhaps only attraction by most people of participating in this bankrupt welfare-state system to begin with is the irresistible allure of getting something for nothing.  This is covetousness and envy in its worst form.  The government has appealed to and encouraged the greed and covetousness and sinfulness of us all by promising something for nothing.  They have made a business (a federal corporation, see 28 U.S.C. 3002(A)(15)) out of procuring your votes and allegiance by offering to steal that which you didn't earn and don't deserve and bribe you with it.  They have procured your vote with loot stolen and plundered from your working neighbor and the richest and most successful members of society that produce the most.  Any society that punishes success and rewards failure, covetousness, and irresponsibility in this way is doomed to destruction!  If people were told the statistical truth (OFFSITE LINK) by our deceitful public servants when they joined the Socialist INsecurity Program (and by implication, the federal tax system as well), which is that:

....there would immediately be a massive revolt by the people, who would refuse to join and demand their money back.  Christians CANNOT be socialists and it is against the bible to be one (OFFSITE LINK).  The government is lying to prop up a failing Ponzi scheme headed for certain destruction.  The only reason this fraud and abuse continues is because it is a convenient tool for politicians to procure votes, but it represents the WORST kind of harm, deceit, and abuse of the people's weaknesses.  Widespread government dependency and chronic government deficits can do nothing but injure and take away the sovereignty and freedoms of the people over the long haul by continually growing the size and power of the government.

“The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.” 
[Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States]

We now have a few rhetorical questions for those in favor of the status quo:

  1. Is there anyone in government who is making sure that people who receive the stolen loot from this totally corrupted system:
    • AREN'T thieves by making sure that no one takes out more than they put in? NOT!! 
    • May not act as jurists or voters in tax or benefit cases because they have a clear conflict of interest in violation of 18 U.S.C. 208? NOT!!
  2. Is anyone in government making sure that the victims, which are the "nontaxpayers" who are compelled to involuntarily participate by coercive private businesses and ignorant and biased jurists, are properly reimbursed for their involuntary and STOLEN contributions?  NOT!! 
  3. Is the IRS counseling and disciplining and punishing coercive employers who violate the consent of their workers by forcing them to participate in an entirely voluntary system of usury? NOT!! 
  4. Is the IRS even willing to tell private businesses in states of the Union that they don't have to participate in the system of federal withholding and that there is no law that requires them to volunteer or participate unless they are a federal agency?  NOT!!!
  5. How can a legal and political system that DOESN'T do any of the above claim to dispense "justice", and if it doesn't dispense justice, then what DOES it dispense?  INJUSTICE?

    “Evil men do not understand [or care about] justice, but those who seek [and obey and worship] the Lord understand all.”
    [Prov. 28:5, Bible, NKJV]

    “Woe to you, scribes [religious leaders] and Pharisees [lawyers], hypocritesFor you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin [to the false god of government with your attorney licenses and your 501(c)(3) and "privileged" tax exemptions, neither of which any positive law requires], and have neglected the weightier [most important] matters of the law [God's Law]: justice and mercy and faith  [in God, and Truth].  These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
    [Jesus in Matt. 23:23, Bible, NKJV]

What Jesus was condemning above is the ongoing sin of omission by our public dis-servants, which are all the things that they should have done but didn't do as our fiduciaries to protect their fellow Americans from illegal and unconstitutional plunder by their government and fellow citizens.  The conclusion is therefore inescapable that our public dis-servants working in government have not only willfully and knowingly become a thief, but that they are consenting with the thieves who they are paying "benefits" (stolen loot) to, and especially if the recipients drew out more than they paid in. 

"When you [a government worker] saw a thief [a socialist voter or a covetous judge or Congressman], you consented with him [by your silence, inaction, and sin of omission],
And have [thereby] been a partaker with adulterers [thieves and government idolaters].
You give your mouth to evil [slander and presumption and prejudice in open court],
And your tongue frames deceit [constructive fraud in the tax "code" or the MISinterpretation of that code by the judge or the IRS publications].
You sit and speak against [slander] your brother [fellow American "nontaxpayer" in front of naive jurists who have been propagandized in the government schools to wrongfully trust government];
You slander your own mother's son.
These things you have done, and I [God] kept silent;
You thought that I was altogether like you;
But I [and my servants and followers] will rebuke you,
And set them in order before your eyes. "
[Psalm 50:18-21, Bible, NKJV]

We would argue that the reason that political discourse has become so polarized of late is precisely because people are arguing about how to redistribute this plunder that our public dis-servants have stolen (OFFSITE LINK).  If the government didn't have any of our money and couldn't redistribute wealth by illegally and unconstitutionally abusing its taxing powers, then would it really matter who gets elected to office and would people care as much as they do now about who gets elected?  PDF Can a society in which over half of American voters now receive illegal bribes from the government cleverly disguised as "benefits" cure its addiction to stolen loot and reform itself through a democratic political process?  NOT!  Republican values, strict observance of the Bill of Rights by the legal profession and judiciary, and religious faith and the morality it produces  are the only cures for this evil.  Theft violates God's law, no matter whether it is done by a single person or a mob of people within a totalitarian socialist democracy.  Might does not make right.

"It must be conceded that there are rights in every free government beyond the control of the State [or a jury or majority of electors].  A government which recognized no such rights, which held the lives, liberty and property of its citizens, subject at all times to the disposition and unlimited control of even the most democratic depository of power, is after all a despotism.  It is true that it is a despotism of the many--of the majority, if you choose to call it so--but it is not the less a despotism."
[Loan Ass'n v. Topeka, 87 U.S. (20 Wall.) 655, 665 (1874)]

Sometimes, it takes leadership as a public servant to do the right and honorable thing, even when the people you serve aren't always aware enough to know or appreciate exactly what they need and what the Lord requires of them.  This kind of respect and concern, in fact, are the heart of what it really means to "love your neighbor" in the Bible:

“My son, if you become surety for your friend [or fellow American or for his Social Security or other government benefits], if you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger [by filling out a tax return, for instance], you are snared by the words of your mouth; you are taken by the words of your mouth. So do this, my son, and deliver yourself;  for you have come into the hand of your friend [slavery!]:  Go and humble yourself; plead with your friend.  Give no sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids.  Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter [a corrupted covetous government and covetous voters who want to steal from the rich and give to the poor by abusing the government's taxing power]; and like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
[Prov. 6:1-5, Bible, NKJV]


“My son, if sinners [socialists, in this case] entice you,
Do not consent
If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait to shed blood [of innocent "nontaxpayers"];
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
And whole, like those who go down to the Pit:
We shall fill our houses with spoil [plunder];
Cast in your lot among us,
Let us all have one purse [share the stolen LOOT]"--

My son, do not walk in the way with them [do not ASSOCIATE with them and don't let the government FORCE you to associate with them either by forcing you to become a "taxpayer"/government whore or a "U.S. citizen"],
Keep your foot from their path;
For their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
Surely, in vain the net is spread
In the sight of any bird;
But they lie in wait for their own blood.
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain [or unearned government benefits];
It takes away the life of its owners.”
[Proverbs 1:10-19, Bible, NKJV]


What right have you to declare My statutes [write man’s vain law], or take My covenant [the Bible] in your mouth, seeing you [idolatrous voters who have made government their idol, parent, social insurance company, and false god] hate instruction [education about liberty on this website, for instance] and cast My words behind you?  When you saw a thief [the IRS and a corrupted judiciary], you consented with him [by helping him steal], and have been a partaker with adulterers [WHORES in receipt of stolen loot].  You give your mouth to evil [in the obfuscated tax code and the slandering and persecution of "nontaxpayers", Christians, religious icons, and ideology], and your tongue frames deceit [in the IRS publications and in federal courtrooms all over the country].  You sit and speak against your brother [in kangaroo courts of injustice that refuse to admit evidence of government wrongdoing]; you slander your own mother’s son [and every "nontaxpayer" who refuses to "volunteer" to become a whore/"taxpayer" and to join the socialist democratic mob of looters].  These things you have done, and I [God] kept silent; you thought that I was altogether like you; but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes.  Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver: Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God.
[Psalm 50:16-23, Bible, NKJV]


And I saw the beast, the kings [heathen political rulers and the unbelieving socialist democratic majorities who control them] of the earth [controlled by Satan], and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him [God] who sat on the horse and against His army.” 
[Revelation 19:19, Bible, NKJV]


"And I heard another voice from heaven [God] saying, 'Come out of her [Babylon the Great Harlot, a democratic, rather than republican, state full of socialist non-believers], my people [Christians], lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.'" 
[Revelation 18:4, Bible, NKJV]

By the way, those who choose to follow the Lord's calling above in Rev. 18:4 to "Come out of Babylon the Great Harlot" (dis-associate), in a legal sense, become "nationals" and not "citizens" under 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) and "nonresidents" who are not subject to the civil jurisdiction of either the federal or national governments.  This is covered in our free memorandum of law entitled "PDF Nonresident Alien Position, Form #05.020".

Below is what God says He, and by implication we as His followers and mighty army, can and will and should do about this wicked and evil corruption of our de jure Constitutional republic, right from the Bible:

Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity
A brood of evildoers
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the Lord [and His sacred moral Laws in the Bible]

They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.
Why should you be stricken again?
You will revolt [rebel against God's laws and the Constitution] more and more.
The whole head is sick [they are out of their minds!: insane or STUPID or both],
And the whole heart faints....

Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor [the IRS and the Federal Reserve and a corrupted judicial system];
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow [and the ignorant and "nontaxpayer"]....

How the faithful city [the Republic] has become a harlot [WHORE!]!
It [the de jure Constitutional Republic] was full of justice;
Righteousness lodged in it,
But now murderers [and abortionists, and socialists, and fornicators, and welfare recipients, and liars and corrupted judges and thieving lawyers].
Your silver has become dross,
Your wine mixed with water.
Your princes [President, Congressmen, Judges] are rebellious [of the Constitution],
Everyone [in the IRS and the crooked Congress who oversees them] loves bribes,
And follows after [money and power and political] rewards.
They do not defend the fatherless [or the murdered aborted children],
nor does the cause of the widow [or the “nontaxpayer”, or of prosecution of government wrong-doers] come before them [in the crooked courts].

Therefore the Lord says,
The Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel,
"Ah, I will rid Myself of My [evil] adversaries,
And take vengeance on My enemies.
I will turn My hand against you,
And thoroughly purge away your dross,
And take away your alloy.
I will restore your judges [eliminate the BAD judges] as at the first,
And your counselors [eliminate the BAD lawyers] as at the beginning.
Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city."
[Isaiah 1:1-26, Bible, NKJV]

Thomas Jefferson (OFFSITE LINK), who was a Christian, an avid student of the Bible, a President of the United States, a judge, our most revered founding father, and author of the Declaration of Independence (OFFSITE LINK), echoed the very words of the Bible above when he made the following insightful and profound statements below:

"I do not charge the judges with willful and ill-intentioned error; but honest error must be arrested where its toleration leads to public ruin. As for the safety of society, we commit honest maniacs to Bedlam; so judges should be withdrawn from their bench whose erroneous biases are leading us to dissolution. It may, indeed, injure them in fame or in fortune; but it saves the republic, which is the first and supreme law."
[Thomas Jefferson: Autobiography, 1821. ME 1:122]

"The original error [of the Constitution was in] establishing a judiciary independent of the nation, and which, from the citadel of the law, can turn its guns on those they were meant to defend, and control and fashion their proceedings to its own will."
[Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 1807. FE 9:68 ]

"It is a misnomer to call a government republican in which a branch of the supreme power [the Federal Judiciary] is independent of the nation."
[Thomas Jefferson to James Pleasants, 1821. FE 10:198 ]

"Contrary to all correct example, [the Federal judiciary] are in the habit of going out of the question before them, to throw an anchor ahead and grapple further hold for future advances of power. They are then in fact the corps of sappers and miners, steadily working to undermine the independent rights of the States and to consolidate all power in the hands of that government in which they have so important a freehold estate."
[Thomas Jefferson: Autobiography, 1821. ME 1:121 ]

"We all know that permanent judges acquire an esprit de corps; that, being known, they are liable to be tempted by bribery; that they are misled by favor, by relationship, by a spirit of party, by a devotion to the executive or legislative; that it is better to leave a cause to the decision of cross and pile than to that of a judge biased to one side; and that the opinion of twelve honest jurymen gives still a better hope of right than cross and pile does."
[Thomas Jefferson to Abbe Arnoux, 1789. ME 7:423, Papers 15:283]

"It is not enough that honest men are appointed judges. All know the influence of interest on the mind of man, and how unconsciously his judgment is warped by that influence. To this bias add that of the esprit de corps, of their peculiar maxim and creed that 'it is the office of a good judge to enlarge his jurisdiction,' and the absence of responsibility, and how can we expect impartial decision between the General government, of which they are themselves so eminent a part, and an individual state from which they have nothing to hope or fear [because of official and judicial immunity]?"
[Thomas Jefferson: Autobiography, 1821. ME 1:121]

"At the establishment of our [state and federal] Constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded [and even unpublished] by the public at large; that these decisions nevertheless become law by precedent ["judge-made law"], sapping by little and little the foundations of the Constitution and working its change by construction before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life if secured against all liability to account."
[Thomas Jefferson to A. Coray, 1823. ME 15:486]

"It is left... to the juries, if they think the permanent judges are under any bias whatever in any cause, to take on themselves to judge the law as well as the fact. They never exercise this power but when they suspect partiality in the judges; and by the exercise of this power they have been the firmest bulwarks of English liberty."
[Thomas Jefferson to Abbe Arnoux, 1789. ME 7:423, Papers 15:283 ]

11.  "Situs",  "domicile" and "residence" of this Ministry

The "situs" or "domicile" or "legal home" under which this ministry conducts all of it's affairs is the republic called the Kingdom of Heaven.  Below are definitions of "situs" and "domicile" that establishes the situs and "legal home" of this ministry:

"domicileA person's legal home.  That place where a man has his true, fixed, and permanent home and principal establishment, and to which whenever he is absent he has the intention of returning.  Smith v. Smith, 206 Pa.Super. 310, 213 A.2d 94.  Generally, physical presence within a state and the intention to make it one's home are the requisites of establishing a "domicile" therein.  The permanent residence of a person or the place to which he intends to return even though he may actually reside elsewhere [for instance, temporarily on earth].  A person may have more than one residence but only one domicile.  The legal domicile of a person is important since it, rather than the actual residence, often controls the jurisdiction of the taxing authorities and determines where a person may exercise the privilege of voting and other legal rights and privileges."
[Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 485]


"Situs.  Lat.  Situation; location; e.g. location or place of crime or business.  Site; position; the place where a thing is considered, for example, with reference to jurisdiction over it, or the right or power to tax it.  It imports fixedness of location.  Situs of property, for tax purposes, is determined by whether the taxing state has sufficient contact with the personal property sought to be taxed to justify in in fairness the particular tax.  Town of Cady v. Alexander Const. Co., 12 Wis.2d 236, 107 N.W.2d 267, 270."

Generally, personal property has its taxable "situs" in that state where owner of it is domiciled.  Smith v. Lummus, 149 Fla. 660, 6 So.2d 625, 627, 628.  Situs of a trust means place of performance of active duties of trustee.  Campbell v. Albers, 313 Ill.App. 152, 39 N.E.2d 672, 676." 
[Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 1387]

Note the key role of the word “intention” within the meaning of domicile.  A person can have many abodes but only one legal domicile.  The law that a person consents to be subject to determines where their “legal home” is under this concept.  This is because all just powers of any free government derive from the "consent of the governed", as the Declaration of Independence (OFFSITE LINK) indicates.  Note also the use of the word “permanent home” above.  According to the Bible, "earth" is NOT permanent, but instead is only temporary, and will eventually be destroyed and rebuilt as a new and different earth.  Sinners will be REMOVED from the earth, in which cases their stay here is definitely temporary and NOT permanent:

"May sinners be consumed [removed] from the earth, And the wicked be no more."
[Psalm 104:35, Bible, NKJV]

"Let not a slanderer be established [dwell permanently] in the earth" 
[Psalm 140:11, Bible, NKJV]

“But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.“
[2 Peter 3:7, Bible NKJV]

For as the new heavens and the new earth [the old will be destroyed] Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the Lord, “So shall your descendants and your name remain."
[Isaiah 66:22, Bible, NKJV]

The legal definition of "permanent" also demonstrates that it can mean any length of time one wants it to mean, which makes it subjective and not objective:

8 U.S.C. 1101

(a)(31) The term ''permanent'' means a relationship of continuing or lasting nature, as distinguished from temporary, but a relationship may be permanent even though it is one that may be dissolved eventually at the instance either of the United States or of the individual, in accordance with law.

Christians define "permanent" the same way God does.  God is eternal so His concept of "permanent" means "eternal".  Therefore, no place on earth can be "permanent" in the context of a Christian:

"Do not love [be a permanent inhabitant or resident of] the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away [not permanent], and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever."
[1 John 2:15, Bible, NKJV]

Christians are only allowed to be governed by God and PDF His laws found in the Bible.  Man’s laws are simply a vain substitute, but God’s laws are our true and permanent source of protection, and the only type of protection we can consent to or intend to be subject to.

“Away with you , Satan!  For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him ONLY [NOT the government or man’s vain laws] you shall serve.’” 
[Matt. 4:10, Bible, NKJV]

Our primary and highest allegiance is exclusively to Him, and not to any man or earthly "code" (obedience to which is optional and voluntary) or government.  We are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, and not earth.

"Much has been said of the paramount duty to the state, a duty to be recognized, it is urged, even though it conflicts with convictions of duty to God. Undoubtedly that duty to the state exists within the domain of power, for government may enforce obedience to laws [whose ONLY purpose is to protect, but not to dictate any other matters] regardless of scruples. When one's belief collides with the power of the state, the latter is supreme within its sphere and submission or punishment follows. But, in the forum of conscience, duty to a moral power higher than the state has always been maintained. The reservation of that supreme obligation, as a matter of principle, would unquestionably be made by many of our conscientious and law-abiding citizens. The essence of religion is belief in a relation to God involving duties superior to those [283 U.S. 605, 634]   arising from any human [or government] relation. As was stated by Mr. Justice Field, in Davis v. Beason, 133 U.S. 333, 342 , 10 S. Ct. 299, 300: 'The term 'religion' has reference to one's views of his relations to his Creator, and to the obligations they impose of reverence for his being and character, and of obedience to his will.' One cannot speak of religious liberty, with proper appreciation of its essential and historic significance, without assuming the existence of a belief in supreme allegiance to the will of God. Professor Macintosh, when pressed by the inquiries put to him, stated what is axiomatic in religious doctrine. And, putting aside dogmas with their particular conceptions of deity, freedom of conscience itself implies respect for an innate conviction of paramount duty. The battle for religious liberty has been fought and won with respect to religious beliefs and practices, which are not in conflict with good order [because not harmful to anyone], upon the very ground of the supremacy of conscience within its proper field. What that field is, under our system of government, presents in part a question of constitutional law, and also, in part, one of legislative policy in avoiding unnecessary clashes with the dictates of conscience. There is abundant room for enforcing the requisite authority of [positive] law [which the I.R.C. is NOT] as it is enacted and requires obedience, and for maintaining the conception of the supremacy of law as essential to orderly government, without demanding that either citizens or applicants for citizenship shall assume by oath an obligation to regard allegiance to God as subordinate to allegiance to civil power. The attempt to exact such a promise, and thus to bind one's conscience by the taking of oaths or the submission to tests, has been the cause of many deplorable conflicts. The Congress has sought to avoid such conflicts in this country by respecting our happy tradition."
[U.S. v. Macintosh, 283 U.S. 605 (1931)]

The most we as devout followers of Christ can be while on earth is "nationals" but not "citizens", because "nationals", unlike citizens, are "foreign sovereigns" protected by the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (OFFSITE LINK) and who are not subject to federal law.  Click here for details (OFFSITE LINK). 

“But if you are led [and governed exclusively] by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” 
[Gal. 5:18, Bible, NKJV]

“…the law [just laws of man, that only protect and do not otherwise impose affirmative duties that do not demonstrably protect] is not made  for a righteous person [and has no jurisdiction over him], but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which has committed to my trust.” 
[1 Tim. 1:9-11, Bible, NKJV]

"Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law [Man's law] through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.  For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.  But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by [by changing our domicile to the Kingdom of Heaven], so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter."
[Romans 7:4-6, Bible, NKJV]

Christians are not allowed to engage in "commerce" [intercourse/fornication] with the government, which the Bible calls the "Beast" (in Revelation), and thereby surrender their sovereign status under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA).  Therefore, Heaven can be our only legal home or domicile as a "national" but not a "citizen".

"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ" 
[Philippians 3:20, Bible, NKJV]

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth."
[Hebrews 11:13, Bible, NKJV]

"Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims [temporarily occupying the world], abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul..." 
[1 Peter 2:1, Bible, NKJV]

"Do you not know that friendship [and citizenship] with the world is enmity with God?  Whoever therefore wants to be a friend [or "resident"] of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
[James 4:4, Bible, NKJV]

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. "
[Romans 12:2, Bible, NKJV]

Note that "domicile" is what makes one a statutory "citizen" within the laws of every country on earth.  Note also that one can ONLY have ONE domicile. 

"A person may have more than one residence but only one domicile."
[Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 485]

Therefore, it is a legal impossibility for a person who is a "citizen of Heaven" to simultaneously be a "citizen" of any earthly jurisdiction.  PDF Click here for details.  This is a natural result of the following statement by the Supreme Administrative Court:

"The doctrine is, that allegiance cannot be due to two sovereigns; and taking an oath of allegiance to a new, is the strongest evidence of withdrawing allegiance from a previous, sovereign….”
[Talbot v. Janson, 3 U.S. 133 (1795); From the sylabus but not the opinion; SOURCE: http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/search/display.html?terms=choice%20or%20conflict%20and%20law&url=/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0003_0133_ZS.html ]

"No servant [or religious ministry or biological person] can serve two masters [God v. Government]; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [government]." 
[Luke 16:13, Bible, NKJV]

To consent or choose to be governed by anything but exclusively God and PDF His sacred Law is idolatry in violation of the first four Commandments of the Ten Commandments.  The ONLY thing that God ever got angry enough to kill people over in the Bible was IDOLATRY.  PDF Click here (OFFSITE LINK) for details.  We can therefore have no "legal home" or "domicile" anywhere on earth.  Our only law is ONLY PDF God's law and Common law, which is based on God's law.

"Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain people [the Jews, who today are the equivalent of Christians] scattered and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; their laws are different from all other people’s [because they are God's laws!], and they do not keep the king’s [unjust] laws.  Therefore it is not fitting for the king to let them remain.  If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.”
[Esther 3:8-9, Bible, NKJV]

We can cooperate with pagan judges ONLY when they are enforcing PDF God's Holy Law and do not conflict with it an ANY WAY.  We allege that the original purpose of trial by jury bequeathed to us by the founding fathers, in fact, was to ensure this very result:

Then he set judges in the land throughout all the fortified cities of Judah, city by city,  and said to the judges, “Take heed to what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment. Now therefore, let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take care and do it, for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, no partiality, nor taking of bribes.

"Moreover in Jerusalem, for the judgment of the LORD and for controversies, Jehoshaphat appointed some of the Levites and priests, and some of the chief fathers of Israel, when they returned to Jerusalem.  And he commanded them, saying, “Thus you shall act in the fear of the LORD, faithfully and with a loyal heart:  Whatever case comes to you from your brethren who dwell in their cities, whether of bloodshed or offenses against law or commandment, against statutes or ordinances, you shall warn them, lest they trespass against the LORD and wrath come upon you and your brethren. Do this, and you will not be guilty. And take notice: Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king’s matters; also the Levites will be officials before you. Behave courageously, and the LORD will be with the good.
[2 Chronicles 19:4-11, Bible, NKJV]

Our acronym for the word BIBLE confirms the above conclusions:

B-Basic
I - Instructions
B-Before
L-Leaving
E-Earth

We are only temporarily here and Heaven is where we intend to return and live permanently.  Legal domicile is based only on intent, and NOT exclusively on physical presence, and it is only "domicile" which establishes one's legal and "tax home".  No one but us can establish our "intent" and this is the express intent.  Neither will we permit our domicile to be subject to change under any circumstances.  To admit that there is a "permanent home" or "place of abode" anywhere on earth is to admit that there is no afterlife, no God, and that this earth is as good as it gets, which is a depressing prospect indeed that conflicts with our religious beliefs.  The Bible says that while we are here, Satan is in control, so this is definitely not a place we would want to call a permanent home or a domicile:

"Again, the devil took Him [Jesus] up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me. [Satan]"

"Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve."'

"Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him." 
[Matt. 4:8-11, Bible, NKJV]


"I [Jesus] will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world [Satan] is coming, and he has nothing in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here."
[Jesus in John 14:30-31, Bible, NKJV]

Satan could not have offered the kingdoms of the world to Jesus and tempted Him with them unless he controlled them to begin with.  Satan is in control while we are here.  Only a fool or an atheist would intend to make a wicked earth controlled by Satan into a "permanent place of abode".

"He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world [on earth] will keep it for eternal life." 
[John 12:25, Bible, NKJV]

Only a person who hates this life and the earth as they are and who doesn't want to make it a "permanent place of abode" or "domicile" can inherit eternal life.

"If you were of the world [had a permanent home here], the world would love its own. Yet because you [Christians] are not of the world, but I chose you [and your DOMICILE] out of the world, therefore the world  hates you."
[John 15:19, Bible, NKJV]

"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world [and the governments, laws, taxes, entanglements, and sin in the world]."
[James 1:27, Bible, NKVJ]

Any attempt to think about citizenship, domicile, and residence any way other than the way it is described here amounts to a devious and deceptive attempt by the Pharisees [lawyers] to use the "traditions of men" to entrap Christians and churches and put them under government laws, control, taxes, and regulation, thereby violating the Separation of Powers Doctrine.  The Separation of Powers Doctrine as well as the Bible itself both require churches and Christians to be totally separate from government, man's laws, and control, taxation, and regulation by government.  See Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302, sections 4.3.5 and 4.3.12 (OFFSITE LINK) for further details on the competition between "church" and "state" for the love and affections of the people, and why separation of these two powers is absolutely essential.

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage [to the government or the income tax or or federal statutes that are not "positive law" and do not have jurisdiction over us]." 
[Galatians 5:1, Bible, NKJV]

Since the only definition of "resident" found anywhere in the Internal Revenue Code or the Treasury Regulations is that of a "resident alien", found in 26 U.S.C. 7701(b)(1)(A), then we are not "residents" because we are not "aliens" but rather "nonresident aliens".  Therefore, we do not have a "residence".  Instead, we are "nonresidents" and "nationals" but not "citizens" or "aliens" or "individuals under federal law pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) and 8 U.S.C. 1452, which makes us a "foreigners" without being a "aliens", "individuals" or "persons" under federal law.  Furthermore, the term "residence" is not defined in the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore we have no way of knowing what it means until it is defined in the code itself.  It is defined at 26 C.F.R. 1.871-2(b) ONLY in the context of "aliens", and therefore it is impossible for a human being who is NOT an "alien" or who is a "non-citizen national" or "nonresident" to have a "residence" in the context of the Internal Revenue Code.  It is a sin for Christians to "presume" or "assume" anything, under Numbers 15:30 and Psalm 19:12-13.  If a "residence" must be established for any reason, you are free to conclude that it is the same as our "situs" and "domicile", which is the Kingdom of God on Earth or Heaven, because this type of conclusion will not prejudice our legal rights or status.  Any other location of "residence", however, will prejudice our rights and is NOT authorized.  We believe that the word "residence" was invented by the legal profession as a way to separate intent from the word "domicile" so that people would no longer have a choice of their legal home, and this is a tyranny that we will have no part of, and will NOT associate with or subsidize.  While we are here, we are foreign Ambassadors, Kings, and Priests who enjoy diplomatic immunity.  Our leader Jesus said so:

"You [Jesus] are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.

[Rev. 5:9-10, Bible, NKJV]

While we are temporarily here as ministers of a "foreign state" and a "foreign government" called the Kingdom of Heaven, we are "public officers" of Heaven and are biblically forbidden to serve as "public officers" in any other jurisdiction.  This is similar to the provisions in most state constitutions which forbid anyone from serving in a public office in more than one government at a time:

"No servant [or religious ministry or biological person] can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [government]."
[Luke 16:13, Bible, NKJV]

“Away with you , Satan!  For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him ONLY [NOT the government!] you shall serve.’”
[Jesus in Matt. 4:10, Bible, NKJV]

Our delegation of authority order direct from God, who is our only King, Lawgiver, and Judge, is contained in the Holy Bible, which is a trust indenture that makes us into "trustees" and "public officers" of the Kingdom of Heaven and God into the beneficiary of the trust.  The grantors or creators of this trust indenture are the prophets who wrote the Bible.  The terms of the Bible trust indenture and delegation of authority order while we are temporarily here as "transient foreigners" and ministers of a "foreign government" and "foreign state" are carefully and thoughtfully summarized in the document below:

12.  A Message to Government Readers

We expect that you may desperately want to silence this website and stop the distribution of our materials because you think they are in error.  You're perfectly entitled to have those opinions and views but we're equally entitled to free speech under the First Amendment so long as we classify what we publish as nonfactual and nonactionable speech.  Efforts to silence our free speech or reclassify our speech over our objections as FACTUAL speech only reveal your true SATANIC colors.  We want you to cooperate with us fully and in good faith in fulfilling our sincere intention to correct and/or remove any of the religious beliefs and speech that are not factual and not actionable from this website that are provably inconsistent with reality.  Note that you can't use the word "false" to describe anything here because our Disclaimer says that everything on this website other than the government's own speech itself (such statutes, court rulings, regulations) consists of religious beliefs and speech that are not factual or actionable, and all such information is incapable of being false in a court of law because not admissible as evidence pursuant to Fed.Rul.Ev. 610.  Therefore, instead of "false", we use the phrase "inconsistent with reality" in its place.  Some ways you can help us in this endeavor include the following, which you must do in descending order of importance, where the lowest numbered item is the most important:

  1. Answering the Admissions at the end of each of our Memorandums of Law and pointing out anything that is inconsistent with reality in each.  See Section 1, Subsection 5 of the SEDM Forms Page.
  2. Answering the Tax Deposition Questions, Form #03.016 (OFFSITE LINK) admissions on a signed affidavit by a person from the government in authority to do so.
  3. Answering the Test for Federal Tax Professionals, Form #03.009 questions on a signed affidavit by a person from the government in authority to do so.
  4. Providing legal evidence disproving the Flawed Tax Arguments to Avoid, Form #08.004 (OFFSITE LINK) document and pointing out anything that is inconsistent with reality.
  5. Providing legal evidence disproving anything in our Policy Document: Rebutted False Arguments Against this Website, Form #08.011. This includes answering the admissions in section 21.
  6. Rebutting anything that you believe is inconsistent with reality anywhere on this website or in our bookstore.

We also request that your answers be posted on the IRS website so that people don't have to ever ask you about these issues again, and that the person answering them takes personal financial and legal responsibility for the accuracy of the answers and agrees to accept responsibility for prosecution for "false commercial speech" if they are wrong.  This, in fact, is a requirement of equal protection of the laws as documented in Requirement for Equal Protection, Form #05.033.  The only reason this website even exists is because you WON'T deal with these issues RESPONSIBLY in a public forum or on your website, and continue to anonymously cite irrelevant federal caselaw as a justification for not addressing the issues in the context of those who aren't even within the jurisdiction of the courts issuing the decisions.  The reasons are obvious to the most casual observer:

"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
[1 Tim. 6:10, Bible, NKJV]

"He who believes in Him [Jesus, the Son of God] is not condemned ; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
[John 3:18-21, Bible, NKJV]

We must also remember what William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, said on this subject:

“They have a Right to censure, that have a Heart to help: The rest is Cruelty, not Justice.”
[William Penn, Some Fruits of Solitude, pt. 1, no. 46 (1693)]

Your answers and/or rebuttals must include evidence admissible under the Federal Rules of Evidence that supports every assertion that you make which is contrary to the evidence and questions we provide here.   The evidence to support your assertions:

  1. Must conform completely with the conclusions contained in:
    Reasonable Belief About Tax Liability, Form #05.007

    If you believe there is anything in the above pamphlet that is untrue, we simply ask for an affidavit under penalty of perjury containing answers to the admissions at the end that prove it is wrong.  Since it contains nothing but official government statements, then it otherwise must be presumed to be correct until proven wrong.  You, as the moving party, have the burden of proving that is it is wrong before you can dismiss it, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 556(d).

  2. Must be admissible, non-prima facie evidence which involves NO kind of presumption

    2.1  The 1939 code upon which the present internal revenue code was based has been REPEALED.  See 53 Stat 1, Section 4.  Not only did it repeal itself, but it also repealed all prior revenue laws from the Statutes at Large prior to January 2, 1939.  Therefore, nothing from the Statutes at large prior to 1939 can be cited as positive law.

    2.2  1 U.S.C. 204 legislative notes, the GPO website, and the House of Representatives websites all say that the Internal Revenue Code is not presently enacted into positive law.   Therefore, if your evidence is cites from the I.R.C., then you must prove for every section of the code you cite that it is individually a positive law (OFFSITE LINK), which is the only type of admissible, non-presumptive evidence having to do with taxation.  The only lawful way to prove that is to cite a section of the Statutes at Large AFTER 1939 which was enacted into positive law.  We remind you that it is a religious sin for Christians (see Numbers 15:30) and a violation of due process to "presume" or "assume" anything, and therefore the government cannot compel us to "presume" that a section of the I.R.C. is enacted positive law without proving it.

  3. If your evidence is from a witness, then the witness must agree on a notarized affidavit to be financially liable for making a false statement in the amount of $1,000,000.
  4. Your evidence may not come from any IRS publication, because the IRS Internal Revenue Manual says in section 4.10.7.2.8 (OFFSITE LINK) that IRS publications may not be cited to sustain a position.  Click here (OFFSITE LINK) for further details on this scam.
  5. If the evidence relates to the liability of a person who does not reside on federal property, then any court cites and statutory law used must come from a state court and not a federal court, because:

    5.1  The Supreme Court said in Erie Railroad v. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64 (1938) that there is no federal common law in a state of the Union.

    5.2   The Rules of Decision Act, 28 U.S.C. 1652 says that the law to be applied in the courts is state law and not federal law, and especially when the domicile of the Defendant is on state property and not on federal property.

    5.3  The IRS Internal Revenue Manual section 4.10.7.2.9.8 (OFFSITE LINK) says that courts below the Supreme Court may only be cited as precedent for the particular person involved in the proceeding.  This ministry is entitled to equal protection of the law and therefore can have the same requirement as the government.  The Master cannot be greater than the servant, which is you.

    5.4  Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 17(b) states that the capacity to sue or be sued is based on the domicile of the Defendant.  If that domicile is in a state and not on land ceded to the federal government or under general federal jurisdiction, then no federal statute or no federal judicial precedent may be cited as authority in the case.

  6. Cannot consist of either the IRS "PDF The Truth About Frivolous Tax Arguments" (OFFSITE LINK) or the Congressional Research Report 97-59A entitled "PDF Frequently Asked Questions About the Federal Income Tax" (OFFSITE LINK).  The reasons for this are many, not the least of which consist of:

    6.1  The IRS document doesn't identify the IRS or anyone in the IRS as a source and is not signed or authenticated.  Under the Federal Rules of Evidence, nothing can be used as evidence without at least the identity of the author being know and the author being sworn under oath and held just as accountable as those who relied on his statements.

    6.2  The Office of the Chief Counsel of the IRS (202-622-3300) positively refuses to either sign or take personal responsibility in writing for publication of this document and thereby be held legally liable for false statements contained therein, even though his administrative help indicated on the telephone that he was the author.  How ironic it is that anyone from the government would insist on calling anything "truth" that absolutely no one conspicuously will claim legal responsibility for.  How ironic also is it that the IRS would base all of its positions against allegedly "frivolous" positions that it can't and won't take personal and legal responsibility for, even though the people who argue against their unofficial position can and are held legally responsible for making "frivolous" arguments by courts that demonstrably don't even have any jurisdiction.  Therefore, both of these publications for similar reasons are simply hearsay evidence that is excludible under the Hearsay Rule (Fed.R.Evid. 802) and also amount essentially to "political propaganda" and "false commercial speech" (OFFSITE LINK) unless and until they are authenticated and the authors are identified and held liable for their dubious and deliberately vague and deceptive statements therein.

    6.3  Federal courts have repeatedly said that one may not rely upon the statements of public servants in forming a reasonable belief.  Click here for some of the reasons why.

If your evidence is admissible, non-prima facie, credible, authoritative, relevant, and accompanied by an affidavit by a government representative who demonstrates his delegated authority to make such a determination and who accepts personal financial responsibility for being wrong (false commercial speech, since large numbers of people will rely on his/her answers), then we are quite open to amending our materials to eliminate proven errors so that this website only contains Truth.

"Let the PDF [proven] righteous strike me;
It shall be a kindness,
And let him rebuke me;
It shall be as excellent oil;
Let my head not refuse it."
[Psalm 141:5, Bible, NKJV]

We don't intend to mislead or hurt anyone and the only way to prevent that is not to slander us, insult us, antagonize us,  shut us down, or terrorize us, but to help and educate us and cooperate with us like any good parent would do for the child that he loves deeply.  This, in fact, is an obligation imposed by IRM section 1.1.1.1, which says:

Internal Revenue Manual, Section 1.1.1.1  (02-26-1999)
IRS Mission and Basic Organization

The IRS Mission: Provide America’s taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.

Until you honor the above requirement of your mission statement and provide equal protection to nonresidents and "nontaxpayers" such as us by helping us understand why you believe that you are NOT violating the I.R.C, then you are operating in bad faith and with malicious intent.  The quickest way to shut this website down is to obey the law or show us why our research on why you aren't obeying the law is wrong.

"I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves, and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion".
[Thomas Jefferson]

If you are sincere about wanting us to obey and respect not just the law, but the spirit and intent of the law, then why don't you set the example by obeying the ONE AND ONLY LAW below, which is the very basis upon which ALL of your earthly moral authority derives as a government:  protecting and helping and loving the most helpless and ignorant and misinformed and poor members of society, which includes me, who can't afford his own lawyer and simply wants to be shown what the law requires by a person in authority.  Put your money where your mouth is or be forever branded a HYPOCRITE!

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
[Gal 5:14, Bible, NKJV]

On the other hand, if your only purpose is to abuse presumption (OFFSITE LINK), words of art, slander, verbal abuse, and political mud-slinging in front of a deliberately DISinformed jury to discredit us, prejudice our rights, and advantage yourself personally (in violation of 18 U.S.C. 208) without FIRST informally trying to correct or improve our materials through other than legal process, then you reveal yourself as a selfish and evil disciple of Satan spreading a false Civil Religion of Socialism (OFFSITE LINK) for your own personal benefit.  

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in himWhen he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” 
[John 8:44, Bible, NKJV]

You are a servant of the People according to our Supreme Court and I am among the People (see section 4.1 of the Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302) who are Sovereign (OFFSITE LINK) over Their government.  Servants do not go around slandering their Masters or rebelling against them, and if they do, God says these evil servants should be punished.

“But if that servant says in his heart ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.” 
[Luke 12:45-47, Bible, NKJV]

Therefore, do not attempt to summons or contact us unless and until you FIRST answering the above itemized list of questions with a signed paper affidavit that says that you agree to accept a $1,000,000 personal liability for being wrong.  This is the same kind of liability you impose upon those who challenge your authority, so you must be willing to provide equal protection of the law.  We will not answer your questions under the Fifth Amendment until you answer our questions FIRST.  Any other approach would constitute rewarding you for operating in BAD FAITH and encourage hypocrisy and violation of fiduciary duty (OFFSITE LINK) on the part of government servants.  Because we are more interested in the truth than our own agenda, we promise to post your response here for all to read unedited. Jesus demonstrated why this is the only reasonable course, when he made the statement below to a bunch of lawyers who were trying to stone and punish an adulterer:

Then the scribes [religious leaders] and Pharisees [lawyers] brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,  they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.  Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?" This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you [lawyers], let him throw a stone at her first.” 
[John 8:7, Bible, NKJV]

We have spent many man years of our own uncompensated time creating the materials on this website and making sure that everything on it is completely consistent with both God's laws and man's laws and making sure that we are without sin in the things we are saying. Now it is your turn to take EQUAL responsibility for the accuracy of your statements in a public forum.  You are going to have to prove, using the words right out of the government's own mouth and overwhelming evidence of your own misdeeds, that you are NOT a sinner FIRST before you can have any moral authority whatsoever to throw stones at us or try to slander us.  Unless you can rebut the overwhelming evidence of your own wrongdoing appearing in the above list of documents to rebut, post the answers on your website, and take responsibility for the answers by posting the author prominently, and thereby thoughtfully and carefully answer our Petition for Redress of Grievances as the First Amendment to the Constitution requires of you, then you have no business throwing rocks at us first.  Here is what Jesus [God] Himself said on this very subject:

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees [lawyers], hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish [your own lives], that the outside of them [the laws you administer and the justice system in general] may be clean also.
[Matt. 23:25-26, Bible, NKJV]

This website and the materials on it were prepared for the use of the authors only by themselves.  Any use of the terms "you", "your", "individuals", "people", "persons", "we recommend", "you should", "we" or "our readers", "readers", "those", "most Americans", "employers", "employees", and all similar references either on the website or in any verbal communications or correspondence with our readers is directed at the author(s) and not other readers.   The only exception to this rule is the Copyright/Software License Agreement, which applies to everyone EXCEPT the author(s) or ministry.   All the authors are doing by posting these materials is sharing with others the results of their extensive research and the play book they developed only for use by themselves.  For instance, the bottom of every page of the Tax Fraud Prevention Manual, Form #06.008 book says: "TOP SECRET:  For Treasury/IRS Internal Use ONLY (FOUO)".  Then in the "Disclaimer" at the beginning of the book, it defines "Treasury" as the "SEDM Department of the Treasury".  Consequently, how those materials impact or influence others is of no concern or consequence to the authors, and no motive may be attributed to any statements by the authors that would appear to be directed at third parties, because such statements are actually directed at themselves only.  How readers use or apply the materials appearing here is entirely their choice and we assume no responsibility for how they act, or fail to act, based on the use of these materials.  This approach is no different from that of the federal government, where the term "employee" in the Internal Revenue Code is made to "appear" like it applies to everyone, but in fact it only applies to federal agents, officers, and instrumentalities of the United States government, all of whom are described in 26 U.S.C. 6331(a).   Any effort on the part of the government to redefine the words we use to mean anything other than what we define them to mean is an admission that we don't have First Amendment Rights, and such an act is an act of Treason punishable by death.  How can a person have First Amendment rights if the authors can't even define the meaning of the words they use?  How can the government claim that we have equal protection of the laws guaranteed under the Constitution (see Article 4, Section 2 and Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Declaration of Independence) if they can define the meaning of the words they use in their void for vagueness "codes", but we can't define the meaning of the words we use in our writings and must rely on some government lawyer or judge with a conflict of interest (in violation of 28 U.S.C. 144, 28 U.S.C. 455, and 18 U.S.C. 208) to define or redefine them to have a meaning other than what we use?  Hypocrisy!

17.  Closing message direct from our sponsor

In honor of our Lord Jesus Christ, we believe that the scriptures on this page demonstrate in spades the power, majesty, and sovereignty of God and render useless and worthless anything and everything that any government or lawyer or politician could ever dream up in a vain effort to compete with, extend, improve, or replace God's Holy Law (OFFSITE LINK).  Below are some of the things that God Himself has to say about such governments, politicians, and lawyers:

"For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with understanding."
[Psalm 47:7, Bible, NKJV]

"Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy! For You [God] shall judge the people righteously, And govern [ALL] the nations on earth."
[Psalm 67:4, Bible, NKJV]

"Arise, O God, judge the earth; For You [God] shall inherit all nations [and governments of nations]."
[Psalm 82:8, Bible, NKJV]

“Behold, the nations [and governments and politicians of the nations] are as a drop in the bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the scales.” 
[Isaiah 40:15, Bible, NKJV]

"All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven And among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand Or say to Him, 'What have You done?'”
[Daniel 4:35, Bible, NKJV]

All nations [and governments] before Him [God] are as nothing, and they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.” 
[Isaiah 40:17, Bible, NKJV]

He [God] brings the princes [and Kings and Presidents] to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.
[Isaiah 40:23, Bible, NKJV]

“Indeed they [the governments and the men who make them up in relation to God] are all worthless; their works are nothing; their molded images [and their bureaus and agencies and usurious "codes" that are not law] are wind [and vanity] and confusion.” 
[Isaiah 41:29, Bible, NKJV]

"Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours [God's]:  whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours. And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
[1 Cor. 3:18-23, Bible, NKJV]

“Arise, O Lord,
Do not let man [or governments made up of men] prevail;
Let the nations be judged [and disciplined] in Your sight.
Put them in fear [with your wrath and the timeless principles of your perfect and Glorious Law], O Lord,
That the nations may know themselves to be but men.”
[Psalm 9:19-20, Bible, NKJV]

"I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.  Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age?  Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
[1 Cor. 1:19-20, Bible, NKJV]
