On October 26, 2005, I was sent the following post. It was posted by Irwin Schiff, a veteran of 30 years of fighting the income tax. He has been in jail before for failure to pay taxes. He keeps refusing to file. He keeps getting convicted.

Government Hangs Innocent Man In Cold Blood

Land of the free rapidly deteriorating into totalitarian police state.

Irwin Schiff railroaded into life prison sentence via star chamber kangaroo court.

LAS VEGAS - Irwin Schiff was led from a federal courtroom in chains today to serve life in prison for telling the truth about the federal income tax.

Irwin Schiff et. al. Found Guilty This Afternoon

Las Vegas, Nevada - Long time author, lecturer on the income tax, Irwin Schiff and his codefendants were found guilty today on numerous counts of the original indictment.

Why? Primarily and simply because Irwin was NOT allowed to talk about the laws creating an income tax liability or lack thereof - even though he was charged with "Willful failure to file" and other "misdeeds" within Title 26 (Income and other tax) of the US Code.

When the jury asked to see Cindy Neun's well-worn copy of Title 26 USC and/or a new copy of Title 26 USC, the "judge" denied them access to it even after he at first said he would allow it! Further, he instructed the jury according to his will -- NOT according to fact and the law! How could he have instructed them about the actual laws when they were not allowed at trial? This has gotten to be an all-too-familiar event within our wayward "court" system.

Gee,let's see here. You are charged with crimes or civil torts, per USC Title 26 BUT you cannot use the laws within USC Title 26 to defend yourself. Yah that's it -- that sounds fair, doesn't it? I gotta believe that Irwin will be vindicated upon appeal. In the meantime, People, IT IS TIME!

People of America, it is time to wake up!

People of America it is time to get behind J.A.I.L. For Judges !

Howard Ruff told me that Schiff told him that he originally got into this as an advertising venture. Then Schiff came to believe that the income tax is illegal. He became a true believer.

The reality is this: courts rarely allow tax protesters present their cases. Juries then convict. They don't understand the arcane language of the tax law or the even more arcane interpretations of tax protesters. They vote to convict. "If I have to pay an income tax, so should this guy."

Schiff has a back-up blog site here.

He has a website here.

There is a blog devoted to trials of tax protesters here.

With the conviction of Schiff, the government has sent a message to Schiff's followers. The law, ratified or not, will be enforced.

If you are interested in the history of the income tax, and how the amendment was never legally ratified, read The Law That Never Was. It was written by Bill Benson, a revenue collector for the state of Illinois. He was sent to prison for non-payment of federal income taxes. He served for several years.
