The Internal Revenue Service Suffers A Staggering Defeat -- American Workers Paid With Gold And Silver Currency Instead Of Federal Reserve Notes!

The following acquittal of businessman Robert Kahre is becoming more typical of a trend in which American workers are being paid gold and silver coinage instead of the counterfeited Federal Reserve Notes that the privately held Federal Reserve Bank launders through the US Treasury and American population. An ILLEGAL practice that the FED has been doing since it was created in 1913.

The fact that Kahre was exonerated not only for using gold and silver coinage to pay his workers, but also for refusing to file a 1040 income tax return is of great concern to the privately held Federal Reserve Bank as well as its collecting appendage -- the Internal Revenue Service -- another privately held corporation that is part of the US Federal Government.

And since the Fed is dependent on the nearly trillion dollars a year that it siphons off of the US economy to maintain its solvency, should this money stop coming in by way of a US tax revolt, it is only a matter of time before the Federal Reserve Bank will be forced to fold its illegal operations -- something that it's been conducting since 1913.

This latest victory for the American people follows at least 25 others in which Americans who were arrested on tax evasion charges were ALL exonerated because a jury could not find any law which authorized the IRS to impose an income tax on the wages of the American worker.

What does this mean to the American people?

For starters, it means that there is no legal reason for them to pay an income tax on their wages. Furthermore, any police officers (federal and otherwise) who arrest an American citizen for not filing a 1040 income tax return are operating against several rulings by the Supreme Court, which has continued to state that the wages of the American worker are to be considered personal property and non taxable.

Thus any peace officesr who violate these rulings by arresting American citizens on charges of income tax evasion are no longer functioning as law enforcement, but instead as mercenaries who are paid to break the law rather than enforce it -- as is the present situation with a Plainfield, New Hampshire couple by the name of Ed and Elaine Brown (who are now heavily armed and hold up in their home after a wrongful conviction on tax evasion charges; and refusing to be taken alive should the FBI and US Marshal's attempt to raid them).

The enormity of this situation is only growing by the day, given that if the US Media discussed the facts behind the Brown's situation nationally by way of TV, RADIO, NEWSPAPERS, TALK SHOWS ETC. (something they have failed to do thus far), tomorrow morning every American taxpayer in this country would be flooding the lines of the US Congress asking for an explanation for this treasonous & precedent setting betrayal of their TRUST.

And it would not be long after this that these people would find themselves being stonewalled by Congress (which not only knows about the IRS and Federal Reserve Bank fraud but is also responsible for their creation) resulting in their refusal to pay any further taxes on their wages.

So is it any surprise that Congress is watching the crack in the damn get larger by the day wondering when it will completely give way -- something that will definitely happen -- the only question now is how long it takes for the American people to collectively learn of this outrageous and treasonous fraud before an American tax revolt in this country begins.

Of course Shaun Kranish, a co founder of the Make The Website (along with Ed and Elaine Brown supporter Danny Reilly -- who has now been arrested and charged with some serious (fabricated)charges by the FEDS for his support of the Browns) must be extremely pleased with this latest news, given the bogus charges that he and his wife are facing, having been charged with attempting to use these coins to pay for goods -- gasoline and ice cream. I still can't believe that they got arrested for this. It is absolutely ridiculous.

Moreover, this latest victory against the IRS and Federal Reserve Bank certainly bodes well for the Kranishes, given that it sets a precedent for them should the state choose to proceed in its ludicrous case against them. This is a nice young couple who should just be able to get on with their lives, instead of having to pay an outrageous sum of money for legal costs in a case that should never have been filed in the first place.

The same is true of every case that has ever been filed against an American citizen who refused to pay a 1040 income tax return.

If the state had any sense at all it would simply drop the charges here before they end up with another situation like Ed and Elaine Brown -- who are standing on their legal rights, while the US Federal Government continues to trample all over them. These continuous abuses by a government that no sane American wants are only bringing us closer and closer to a civil revolution; one which will most likely begin by way of a tax revolt. And once this begins the FEDS and their precedent setting crimes will be exposed for the entire world to see.

Media Blackout: 161 Federal Tax Charges, 0 Convictions!!!

IRS Suffers Staggering Defeat
Tax Questions Raised Regarding
Gold and Silver Coins Used to Pay Wages

Around noon on Monday, September 17th, a Las Vegas federal jury returned its verdict refusing to convict nine defendants of any of the 161 federal tax crimes they had been charged with. The charges included income tax evasion, willful failure to file and conspiracy to evade taxes.

The four-month trial centered around the family businesses of Robert Kahre who paid numerous workers for their labor with circulating gold and silver U.S. coins, and did not report the wages. The payments took place over several years, allegedly totaling at least $114 million dollars.

On September 20, 2007, three days after the federal trial's dramatic conclusion, the Las Vegas Review Journal, reportedly under a degree of public pressure, ran its first (and last) story about the outcome of the trial. To this day, with exception of the single article by the Review Journal, no major media entity has published a news story regarding the outcome of this important federal criminal tax case.

The censorship of this important news story is, unfortunately, not unexpected given the continuing, worldwide onslaught against the U.S. "dollar" -- specifically the Federal Reserve variety, and the ever growing numbers of Federal Reserve Notes required to trade for an actual ounce of silver, gold, oil, or for that matter, anything.

In short, this failed prosecution has coalesced and exposed truths our Government desperately needs to hide from the People: the truth about our money, the truth about our (privately-owned) central bank, and the truth about the fraudulent nature of the operation and enforcement of the federal income tax system.

According to defense attorney Joel Hansen, who represented co-defendant Alex Loglia, the primary "willfulness" defense was that the defendants believed they had no legal obligation to withhold, pay income taxes or report anything to the government because, in part, the nominal (i.e., face value) of the gold and silver coins is so small as to fall beneath the reporting thresholds set by the Internal Revenue Code.

The Defendants also argued that regardless of the valuation of the coins for internal revenue purposes, there is no law that requires average American workers to file or pay direct, un-apportioned taxes on the fruits of their labor.

The Government argued that the payments in solid gold and silver U.S. coins must be considered at their bullion (i.e., intrinsic full-market) value when considering the worth of the wages for purposes of the internal revenue code.

Attorney Hansen cited two Supreme Court cases bolstering Defendant's monetary argument at the heart of the defendants "willfulness" defense.

The essence of the argument is that under the Constitution Congress is obligated by law to mint and circulate such coins as demand requires, and must establish the value of coins as they are used as legal tender, but the coins' market value, arising as valuable personal "property," is a distinct, separate attribute of such coins, and is of no legal consequence if the coins are used as legal tender.

In other words, if a worker is paid with such coins, his taxable "income" (if any) can only be the face value indicated upon the coin money paid -- i.e., $1.00 for a circulating silver dollar or $50 for a circulating gold U.S. coin. Not surprisingly, the IRS has never issued any public guidance regarding this significant issue.

The first case, Ling Su Fan v. U.S., 218 US 302 (1910) establishes the legal distinction of a coin bearing the "impress" of the sovereign:

"These limitations are due to the fact that public law gives to such coinage a value which does not attach as a mere consequence of intrinsic value. Their quality as a legal tender is an attribute of law aside from their bullion value. They bear, therefore, the impress of sovereign power which fixes value and authorizes their use in exchange."

The second case, Thompson v. Butler, 95 US 694 (1877), establishes that the law makes no legal distinction between the values of coin and paper money used as legal tender:

"A coin dollar is worth no more for the purposes of tender in payment of an ordinary debt than a note dollar. The law has not made the note a standard of value any more than coin. It is true that in the market, as an article of merchandise, one is of greater value than the other; but as money, that is to say, as a medium of exchange, the law knows no difference between them."

Defense attorney Hansen confirmed that members of the jury were able to actually hold and inspect the gold and silver U.S. coins paid to the workers.

After almost four months of testimony and three and a half days of deliberation, the jury did not convict any of the defendants of any of the 161 crimes alleged. Although some defendants were acquitted of multiple counts, and several were acquitted completely, others may have to stand for a retrial if the Government brings charges a second time.

The Review Journal reported the jury foreman claimed DOJ prosecutors admitted they were "shocked" by the outcome.

In March 2007, the primary defendant, Bob Kahre, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the prosecutor and IRS agents who had conducted what he alleges to be an unlawful search and seizure raid. In 2005, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to overturn a previous District Court ruling holding that the federal prosecutor is not entitled to absolute immunity for the unlawful raid.

The media suppression of this story is similar to the widespread mainstream media suppression of the July 11, 2007 acquittal of Louisiana attorney Tommy Cryer who was also charged with multiple federal income tax crimes and relied upon numerous Supreme Court precedents and U.S. tax laws to establish his "willfulness" defense.
