Former IRS Special Agent on Radio/Internet Thursday

Dear Friends and Supporters:

RADIO SHOW

Scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday) at 3:00 PM EST, I am to appear on the "Veritas" radio show. I am hoping to be joined by at least one member of my legal team, Attorney Robert Barnes. You can listen live at http://www.tiger1590.com . The show will be archived at www.veritasradio.com.


We already have confirmation that the IRS is not only on my email list but monitors most of my 1st Amendment activities. Not to worry - the published IRS mission statement instructs IRS officials to "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".

It would appear that the IRS accomplishes this mission as though the agency is driving down a one-way street. Government monitoring of a citizen's speech and conduct is fair game but citizen attempts to monitor the government's speech and conduct are severely punished.

I'm reminded of the Department of the Treasury, Minimum Standards of Conduct, (31 CFR Part O, Revised as of December 23, 1988), standards that I reviewed as I contemplated whether I had a duty to speak up about the IRS wrongdoing I had investigated while serving as an IRS Special Agent. Subpart A of the standards quotes from Executive Order 11222 as follows:

"Where government is based on the consent of the governed, every citizen is entitled to have complete confidence in the integrity of their government. Each individual officer, employee, or advisor of government must help to earn and must honor that trust by his (or her) own integrity and conduct in all official actions."

Do you have complete confidence in the integrity of your government?

For those who are unfamiliar with what has transpired to date in this case, please visit www.freedomabovefortune.com and click on "IRS LOCKOUT UPDATE".

My sincere thanks to those who have prayed for the success of our efforts and contributed to my defense fund. I am even receiving repeat donations from some contributors. Your continued financial support is enabling me to illustrate, in detail and in a very public manner, that the IRS does not prevail against citizens because the agency adheres to the rule of law, but that the IRS prevails against citizens because the agency ignores the law and overwhelms the citizen with economic and legal burdens. In a school yard, such tactics are called "BULLYING". This effort is the equivalent of ganging up on the bully and sending him to reform school where he belongs.


Kind Regards,

WTP Passes 1/3 Mark and Former IRS Agent on Radio Archives

Dear Friends and Supporters:

The We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education/We The People Congress has passed the 1/3 mark and needs your help to get over the top. Please visit www.givemeliberty.org for the latest details. I have attached the announcement below.

Also, you can listen to an archive of my appearance with Attorney Robert Bernhoft on WBIG this morning (Monday) at www.hearliberty.com . Dave Champion also has archived his November 29th show in which he talks about the Dick Simkanin case and my case at www.americanradioshow.us .

Right To Petition Lawsuit Update:

We Have Passed The 1/3 Mark.
$92,000 Received. Thank You.

We are grateful to all those who have contributed thus far toward the cost of prosecuting the upcoming class action lawsuit against the United States in defense of the unalienable Right to Petition the government for a Redress of Grievances, as guaranteed by the 1st Amendment.

Our purpose with this update is to remind everyone that the Constitution does not, and cannot, defend itself. Our Republic's founding document sits quietly on book shelves and in museum displays, awaiting those that wish not only to read its historic text, but those that demand to live by, and defend, its guiding principles and gifts of Providence.

The task of defending our Rights, including each of those guaranteed by the Constitution, falls to the responsible citizen, those among the People who are able to distinguish between right and wrong and to think and act rationally.

There is no escaping the fact that each person on American soil, blessed and protected by the essential principles underlying our Constitutional Republic, has a duty to defend each and every one them. We are each responsible, answerable, accountable and liable.

American citizens have a duty to protect their country from their government.

We have only two ways to peaceably hold government accountable to the Constitution when we have evidence that it is infringing on any of our Rights or is otherwise operating outside the boundaries we have drawn around its power: 1) the ballot: and 2) the Petition for Redress of Grievances.

Without the Right to Petition for Redress, we are left with the ballot.

Without the Right to Petition for Redress, individuals and small groups have no way to enforce their Rights, which are not only individual, but unalienable.

Without the Right to Petition for Redress, individuals and small groups of individuals are threatened with the erosion of their Rights, Freedoms and Liberties, simply because the rest of society has no knowledge of infringements or has no interest in protecting against them, preferring, instead, the calm seas of despotism.

Little do they know that an act of tyranny anywhere is a threat to freedom every where.

We respectfully request of everyone that they act immediately in three ways:

1. Send a donation to WTP so that the lawsuit can commence ASAP, and

2. Send $25 for SIX copies of our new powerfully written, color corporate brochure to send to your acquaintances with a request that they consider making a (tax-deductible) year-end donation to WTP. You will receive the 6 brochures within three days of your request. Click here to obtain the brochures from our secure, on-line store, http://www.GiveMeLiberty.org/store/default.htm, or to
preview the brochure.

3. ASAP, please send this message to everyone on your mailing lists.


Thank you very much.
