Guest Post: Welcome to the United States of Orwell, Part 2: Law-Abiding Taxpayers Treated As Criminals

In a follow-up to yesterday's Part 1: Submitted by Charles Hugh Smith of OfTwoMinds,

 

Welcome to the United States of Orwell, Part 2: Law-Abiding Taxpayers Are Treated as Criminals While the Real Criminals Go Free   (March 27, 2012)

Law-abiding taxpayers are treated like criminals while the criminal class of financiers and State apparatchiks are free to loot and pillage muppets and taxpayers alike.

I recently received quite an education about how law-abiding taxpayers are treated by the state of California via dozens upon dozens of emails detailing how the Golden State ransacked the bank accounts of law-abiding taxpayers in other states without notification or due process, as if the citizens being looted were crafty bankers who'd stolen church funds to live tax-free in an offshore tax haven.

As we all know, crafty (and politically protected) bankers are free to loot churches, muppets and the taxpayers at will while taxpayers are looted by lawless government. Here is a typical account of state thievery. It is anonymous for a good reason: As I noted last week, law-abiding citizens are terrified of their governments, local, state and Federal, as they know that these agencies are literally above the law and will exact retribution on anyone who reveals their tyrannical trashing of due process or who questions their feudal pillaging of oppressed debt-serfs. (I previously addressed this topic in Welcome to the Predatory State of California--Even If You Don't Live There March 20, 2012)

 

I received a letter last year that we owed the state of California's Franchise Tax Board $90,000 for taxes in the year 2008.

We replied to the Franchise Tax board in a similar manner as RT stating that:

-- Did not reside in California in 2008

-- Did not file a State income tax return in California in 2008

-- Did not have any outstanding tax issues with California in 2008

-- Did no business in California in 2008

-- Owned no property in California in 2008

The CA Franchise Tax board responded by putting a lien on us in the state - fortunately, our banks and assets have no business in CA or I am certain our accounts would have been robbed as well.

After a great deal of uncertainty and angst, I found an accountant in CA who advised us that we needed to file a complete CA tax return for 2008 even though we did not owe any tax. We filed the return and received a response that we owed the state $625 to cover the State's collection fees. We paid the fee and within two weeks received a "refund" check for the $625.

On reflection, we felt as if we had been "held up" by some powerful gangsters and if it had not been for an honest tax accountant we would have suffered much financial damage.

This basic story is repeated thousands of times annually, and while California may hold special status as the most predatory, parasitic, due-process-be-damned state, it's clear that other state and local governments are pursuing similar strategies of lawless looting under the cover of tyrannical statutes approved by elected lackeys of the financial aristocracy.

Is financial tyranny "legal" if some state legislature claims it is legal? Or is all financial tyranny above the law, regardless of what the elected toadies and apparatchiks claim? Would the Supreme Court, another set of lackeys, ever rule that a state cannot steal funds from a private bank account without due process other than a concocted claim that the person might owe the state taxes?

Of course it won't, for the Supreme Court has long ago given up restricting government's ability to loot and pillage the citizenry. The Court can't even be roused to defend the Bill of Rights, the most sacred set of civil liberties the nation holds (or held-- the Bill of Rights has been annulled by the Orwellian "national defense" NDAA-- Welcome to the United States of Orwell, Part 1: Our One Last Chance to Preserve the Bill of Rights).

Based on dozens of detailed accounts, I finally figured out how the state of California calculates the tax you owe it.

1. If you ever resided in California or filed a tax return there, even 20 years ago, then any 1099 you receive from anywhere from now until your death is "proof" that you owe tax on that income to California.

2. If you live elsewhere but retain a license to do any kind of business in California, you must be hiding income and therefore you owe substantial taxes to California based on bureaucratic calculations of the average income others with your license earned.

3. If you ever filed a tax return in California, if you stop filing tax returns then you will be targeted and brought to earth as a tax dodger. The only way to escape the lawless wrath of the state's Franchise Tax Board is to keep filing tax returns in California until you die, even if you moved away years ago and earned no income there.

Yes, the mere cessation of filing is "proof" you're hiding income and are a tax dodger whose bank account must be stripped clean. Wells Fargo Bank, a recipient of taxpayer funds in the billions of dollars, deducts $100 or even $150 to do the state's dirty work, and then when it's shown the taxpayer owes the state no taxes, the bank doesn't refund the fee--are you kidding?

The banks and their management are still free to plunder, loot, defraud, pillage, misrepresent risk, assets and liabilities--all backstopped by taxpayer funds. If this isn't the acme of Orwellian reversal, then precisely what is? Taxpayers whose accounts have been looted by the state on the flimsy pretenses listed above must then endure the Kafkaesque torture of pleading with California'a Franchise Tax Board to return the money that was stolen from them without due process.

The Franchise Tax Board tells the powerless taxpayer (let's call him Josef K.) that if he's lucky (and who's lucky when caught in a fearsome web of bureaucracy) his money might trickle back to him in 6 to 8 weeks. The $100 stolen by Wells Fargo-- that's your "penalty" for ever having admitted that you lived in California.

It's like the Hotel California--you can move out any time you like, but you can never leave the tax liability. I am not making this up--I have dozens of detailed accounts of people moving out of California many years ago and having no business or property in the state, yet a 1099 from years past or the mere "failure" to keep filing state returns in perpetuity triggers an unannounced and unexplained raid on their private bank account and/or a lien against any property they own in California.

Then, after much anguish and expense, the trumped-up, totally fabricated, delusional claims of tax liability dissolve and then they begin the bureaucratic nightmare of trying to wrest their money from the rogue state's grasp.

Meanwhile, Federal prosecution of financial fraud has fallen to a 20-year low. Coincidence? No; lack of funding and powerful political protection play roles in protecting the real criminals from any risk. Brown-nosing Republicans have made ceaseless efforts to gut any agencies still clinging to an interest in prosecuting financial crimes, but financial tyranny starts by gutting the statutes themselves so fraud, embezzlement, etc. are no longer crimes.

Not filing a tax return in California even though you moved out of the state 10 years ago, however, is a crime--but as in an Orwellian nightmare, the "law" isn't written down, it is embedded in some bureaucratic rules that are hidden from the taxpaying citizens. It isn't "legal," but since due process has been abolished, who cares what's legal or illegal?

It's actually very simple: whatever the state or Federal government does to you, that's legal. Whatever action you take to protect your rights is illegal.

In case you have any doubts about where our "leadership" is taking us, please review these Assorted quotes by Fascists or about Fascism.

The over-profits of the shark loans in the USA not only did not turn their dollars into inflationary money, but also they were multiplied and exported abroad in the form of “investments”. The illegally “increased" dollars of the internal USA economy become tons of “investments” abroad. FED printed cheap money and loansharking multiplied this money in an unnatural way within the American economy boarders and they discarded them abroad so that they did not threaten USA. USA became the first state in the world with artificial “breathing” ...the first state that burdened the international economy with its “breathing” ... and this is where everything started ...this is where the current shabbiness started, Loan sharks that are international today and “hide” behind the vague term of “Markets” are in fact the old loan sharks of the American market. They by controlling the USA monetary system “pumped in air” constantly in order to make profit from the USA “breathing”.

by gosh you are right...near 25000 workders have been fired or let go  to 'balance the budget" (guess what that does to the 'fractional' turn over of money).  Florida has changed the property taxes to an a'la'carte system...you get billed for everything as separate item ( property, school, fire, trash, etc.) and each has gone up (but you as a Republican Govornor can claim 'property taxes' have gone down by twisting the facts).  I'd go on but no one in Florida pays attention to facts.

I will never understand how Orwell could be so adept at weaving a story around the inevitable nightmare of collectivist, centrally planned Governance, but still apologize for Socialism and Communism.

It is like decrying the horrors of chidbirth, but then advocating for pregnancy as a system of belief. I don't think he understood (or accepted?) the realities of mans avarice.

California is a state of amazing natural beauty and wonder.  The climate is spectacular, and it possesses world class beaches, ski resorts, mountains, hiking, and so forth.  And there are plenty of beautiful women in California.  Along with a laid back culture.

 

If two states are run by corrupt governments then I'll take the one with all of the above over the one with freezing, horrible winters, rain, pollution, and no real redeeming qualities any day of the week.

 

There is literally nothing good about Chicago or Illinois.  Nothing.

I am gonna go ahead and disagree with you on that.  Southern Illinois is some of the most beautiful land I have even seen, more akin to the rolling hills of the forrests of Missouri.  It is great land for making wine, hence the robust community of local vineyards.  Should you ever decide to visit this state then give your finger to the north and head down south.  Fine living and dining all around. 

 

Chicago is fun to visit for ball games and such, but they are their own world.

Funny thing is I saw that same flag and pic, but with an elephant instead of a donkey in 2002. It was right then, its right now. Silly that folks act like its one party or another. It's about what we as Americans have allowed our country to become.

Wishing all you ZHers the ability to transcend this madness. It all starts within, change that and everything else will change. Don't change what's within and it doesn't matter what party or people run things we will keep getting the same result. All change begins within. May you all have a rich abundance of peace, love and joy in your lives.

Actually the dipiction with the donkey is incorrect. Democrats are supposed to be communists, not fascists. Republican policies would be more accurately describe as fascist. These philosophies are at opposite ends of the spectrum so the picture is plain dumb.

It becomes easier when you look at a linear line.

On one end, you have personal liberty.  On the other, you have government power.

All the -isms are at that end.  Just different flavors to catch the different flavors of statists.

last time i checked it was the democrat party who tries to silence people who oppose their point of view. Just look at global warming, or healthcare, or taxes, or christianity/catholics/mormons/baptists but if you are a muslim then you are golden, or if you want the government to limit their taxing and spending like the tea party, but if you are a anarchist/communist/socialist/progressive/stalinist then you are protected by the democrat party as heroes and the 99%ers, or if you believe in traditional marriage which has a specific definition and who wants to change that. DEMOCRATS!!! The constitution guarantees a REPUBLICAN FORM of government. Republican means a representative form of gov't. Democracy is majority rules.  Meaning they will RULE OVER YOU. The Republicans in congress are the ones we want to get rid of and put in actural representatives of the people.  Fascism tries to silence people by using the gov't.......or community organizers like Obama!  There is a difference. Just not one you will ever recognize. WTFU

I think republicans get a bad rap.  All republicans want to do is use their bought and paid for radio and TV monopolies to overwhelm or control all information so that we will all have to bow to their religion... money!  I mean Jesus!  (Who happens to love you more if you have lots of money)

Republicans want to make sure that the government serves only the interests of the super rich because they are the most loved by Jesus.  It's ok to bail out big rich companies because they make the markets that trickle on us all!  That's how capitalism works you know?  Give as much money and power as you can to as few people as you can.  Democracy is for communists!  What kind of decent person wants to have a say in how they are ruled?  The same people who want you to get gay married! 

Those stupid people who want to organize are evil!  The job of a populace should be to unquestioningly die for the sake of their betters.  If they say go and kill, you should do so and not ask questions.  Doubting your superiors is commu-islamo-fascism.

Besides , how can you even worry about such trivial things like justifications for war or corporate malfeasance when their are men out their buggering each other!  Right now!  In each other's butts!!!

I've seen my own asshole in the mirror and let me tell you... it's no playground.

(sorry for the nonsensical nature of the post but... I felt you were hogging all the stupid to yourself)

disagree.

socialists and fascists are both branches of the same collectivist tree. one group tends to be more internationalist and collectivist oriented with wanting direct government control of the economy, the other, more nationalist and use of business as a tool for carrying out government economic policy. both look at the people as a resource that needs to be managed for their own good. democrats protecting big banks, repubs growing government. both trashing the constitution. its pointless to try to assign the current US political parties either name. they both represent the same things. the flag in the picture would be more accurate if it had a donkey and an elephant on it.

Haven't heard much from Naomi Wolf lately (The End of America is a must-watch if you haven't seen it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjALf12PAWc) - "It's just like in Germany".

Eric Townsend speaking with Puplava was thinking about Nazi Germany and decided it was due to people (smart, hard-working people no doubt) that 'had' freedom, liberty, and wealth, but lost it (http://www.netcastdaily.com/broadcast/fsn2012-0321-1.mp3). You'll clo anything to bring back the good times. Erik mentions talking to another person about the reasons NOT to leave the U.S. - and the response was that maybe America becomes so ugly, that the only safe place for Americans is HERE within the empire that's doing terrible things around the world. Resource wars? (His reasons FOR leaving is that people don't think there's a problem!)

The Dems and Repubs are same-team. I could see in the not too distant future, once the apparatus is set up by Obama (including the NSAs project and countless drone flights) - in walks Jeb or Jenna Bush to take the reins of a REAL fascist empire. A do-or-die system of complete authoritarian control. Might sound like fiction now... Hope it stays the paranoid rantings of 'some nameless dude on the internets'..

I lived in CA in the past, and got a tax due notice from them a few years ago, some 10 years after leaving.  I wrote am impolite, but not quite profane, letter explaining why I left CA and that they could go to hell.  I subsequently received a notice of "account paid in full" from them.  Haven't heard back, and that was years ago.  Apparently I had a mortgage through B of A, which had a business address in CA, and CA thought I owned property at the address of B of A.  No, I don't own B of A.  They figured this out by themselves, if you can imagine it.  If it happens again my letter to them will be profane.  I am doing my best to never set foot in that state ever again.  Should they ever slide into the Pacific ocean, that might be the best way to extinguish their utterly unpayable debt.

@ Frank N. Beans,

National Security is deception/Illusion to hide the fact that we are Slaves of the Coporate Banking Global Elite. They have set up a Police State to protect THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION. Ever wonder why your name is in CAPITAL letters on your birth certificate. Yes, unknowingly we've all been given away at birth to debt bondage and slavery to a "strawman". Research it.

 

It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers. Sapp v. Tallahasee, 348 So. 2nd. 363, Reiff v. City of Philadelphia, 477 F.Supp. 1262, Lynch v. N.C. Dept of Justice 376 S.E. 2nd. 247.

 

The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs were never part of the United States government. Even though the “US Government” held shares of stock in the various Agencies. (U.S. V. Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF. The Application for a Social Security Number is the SS5 form. The Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 not the Social Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who or what publishes them, the earlier SS5 forms state that they are Department of the Treasury forms. You can get a copy of the SS5 you filled out by sending form SSA-L996 to the SS Administration. (20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 422.103 (b) (2) (2) Read the cites above)

The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816)

The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

And finally,

There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes. (FRC v. GE 281 US 464, Keller v. PE 261 US 428, 1 Stat. 138-178)

When they ask you “how do you plea?” they are attempting to CONTRACT with your LEGAL FICTION,STRAWMAN,ALL CAPS NAME VERSION OF YOU. From my research some people have been successful with “I don’t plea, wish to contract.”I demand common law jurisdiction, I waive all benefits.” Don’t let them plea for you, they cant, only you or you representative can. All courts are CONTRACT COURTS, AND JUDGES ARE EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATORS OF THE CORPORATION,NOT JUDGES.

That "all caps" thing is total bullshit.  The practice of using all caps for names in court cases stems from the typewriters used in the old days - there was no bold or italics, so they used ALL CAPS to signify BOLD and underlining to signify italics.

I have seen alot of chatter over the last few years about all of this.  Including talk about equity, equitable estate, maxims of equity, etc.  Common law versus civil law.

I have to admit that most of it over my head - and so far the posts I have seen never really put in lay terms - by example or otherwise - when and how one exercises such things without getting thrown into a deep, dark hole.

I have also looked into this quite alot.  The all caps thing I have not fully accepted, but I accept as fact that we have blended law with equity in the courts of the USA.

As to staying out of a dark hole with bubba, that would be really difficult.  You cannot even speak with a lawyer about it, as they are part of the court system through the BAR.  So all your information must be gleaned by others and old cases, etc.

This happened to me decades ago, I thought it was an isolated paperwork screw-up. 

I lawyered up immeadiately, so don't have the detail at hand, but the basics were the same:  I obtained a professional license in CA and liability insurance in advance of a planned office move, move never happened - never did business there - let them drop, then recieved a dunning letter for a 20K tax assessment followed by a notice of lien (not an actual lein) to my bank.  It was all run by some debt collector masquerading as a law firm.  My lawyer made it go away, but lacking a lawyer would have been hell to deal with.

Let's distill this down to absolute simplicity.

If one does not pay one's taxes, men with guns will come to one's house.

One can then choose a course of active resistance or passive compliance.

The former will most likely result in death(s).

The latter will most likely result in a complete confiscation of any physical wealth accrued with probability of incarceration.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

It's been done a bunch of times already.  2 famous ones that come to mind are Ruby Ridge and Waco.

Both raids were initiated over non-payment of taxes to ATF.  Ruby Ridge was over too short of a shotgun barrel (justification for Lon Horiuchi to shoot Mrs. Weaver in the head while holding her baby) and Waco where, the very whacky but peaceful, Branch Davidians were raided because a neighbor "thought" he heard automatic weapons fire, and again the ATF wanted their tax money.  Lon Horiuchi was there too by the way.  And for those who ate up the propaganda, no the Davidians were not molesting children as Janet Reno said.

Both raids resulted in dead feds.

I remember telling my ex-father-in-law, a wealthy insurance agent, that you don't own your "stuff", your "stuff" owns you.

I said, "just stop paying your taxes, and you'll find out who really owns your house."

He looked at me quisically when I told him that even though he had enough money to provide for a good retirement lifestyle, he would need to keep working just to be able to maintain his "stuff".

That my friends is the illusion we all suffer from, we all believe the marketers version of reality. consume, consume, consume.  And the truism that you can't take it with you when you die is paramount.  And if you think you are doing your kids a favor by passing it on to them, think twice.  You're just passing off the burden and making them instant servants to the continuing maintenance of your "stuff", thereby sealing their fate as "muppets" for the pleasure of the banks and their state run enablers.

A little tid bit of facts to my above post for one to look up and verify. Most of us are contracted with Wash D.C via our birth certificate (straw man) (All capital letterd "TRADE NAME" as is on your driver's license). Most are then considered "vessels" under admiralty law, and also a prize in war (war was officially declared against American citizens by the United States Government under FDR in the Amendatory Act of March 9, 1933 (a/k/a Emergency Banking Relief Act) to the Trading With the Enemy Act of October 6, 1917. Prize on land is called "booty" ie: government fines, confiscation, fees, taxes, etc.

It is my opinion that the word "Sovereign" should be stricken from ones vocabulary. Many LE agencies deem this movement as possibly being extremely dangerous and you may be subject to harsh treatment if you refer to yourself as a sovereign. Our approach to free the chains is more polished and backed by true common law.

You should refer to yourself by your givin name and your family or surname as is the case with your passport. In short, you are only a representitive, agent, authorized signor, etc. for the person named on the birth certificate.

Even though your passport refers to your givin name and surname, it's the manner in which you completed your application for the passport that contracts you to the Washington, D.C. de facto chains. All these contracts such as passport, SS, driver's license, voting reg., hunting license, bank signature cards, etc. needs to be changed in order to release these chains.

Look at one of your personal checks. Notice at the end of the signature line there is the letters "MP". This stands for micro print and if you were to take a high power magnifying glass or microscope, you would see how your signature is qualified. The fiction person as specified on your birth certificate can't legally authorize monetary payments.


It will also take some pretty hard core studying to become verse in common law. One can get into real trouble by saying the wrong words as well as answering questions in the wrong manner. Law is all words and words have definitions and these definitions for words in law may not have the same meaning as the very same words used in everyday common speak. This is all by design in order for this Ponzi schemed de facto government to buffalo us, the people, into submission. It's really that simple.

Remember, congress suspended the constitution in 1871 and Washington D.C. is domiciled in the 10 square miles in Md. and VA. and was then deemed under a de facto government. Look up the definition of United States in law books and it will specify that the United States is domiciled in Wash. D.C. The State of CA, TX, MI, etc. are also domiciled in Wash. D.C., County of Orange, Wayne, Los Angeles, etc. are domiciled in Wash. D.C. as opposed to the Republic of CA or the Rep. of TX, etc. which are the free physical dirt not ruled under this de facto scenario.

In the UK they go nuts when you do that in court, then they threaten you (in private chambers), then they try to bankrupt you, then they drop the case:-)

Just looked at my check.  There was the MP, and underneath, the signature line turned out to be micro-printed "AUTHORIZED SIGNATURE", repeated over and over.  So I guess somewhere else they defined "AUTHORIZED SIGNATURE" as "I hereby sell my soul to the Rothschilds". 

What I don't understand is how people think that the judges are computers that little people can "hack" by speaking the right words to them, and if they come down on you 10x harder for knowing your rights, then it's because you subtly screwed up the magic words because you didn't waste enough years of your life on arcane study of the magic words.  The truth is that the judges are as corrupt as everyone else in the system and all this talk about laws is just a big psyops to keep the peasants from revolting.  The law is whatever the puppetmasters want it to be for your particular case.  No judge will ever be punished for trampling your common-law rights.  Therefore, the only remaining law is the law of the jungle.  Hedge with various metals.

o        Obama really is the president of THE UNITED STATES and not the president of these united states because THE UNITED STATES is a corporation that doesn’t need the constitution. Everything is run by administrative law courts, which are based on the universal commercial code (U.C.C). Everything is commerce to these pirates; yes pirates! Even you whoever you are a corporate fiction in their eyes. Ever notice that every transaction you engage in has your name printed in capitals letters, that is not you the flesh and blood human being, it is your corporate fiction, the straw man that was initiated at your birth with the birth certificate. A bond was created and bundled with thousands of others born around the same date as you and are traded on the open market. Every official interaction with government opportune to create more bonds. Do you get it! WE literally have been born into bondage. Only a colossal meltdown of the system can remedy this. Fight the good fight!

The paying for society myth becomes more discredited everyday. You should collect all of these stories and list them on the Internet. As more people get trapped by this, they're going to need to see the full picture of what's happening to them. It's sad that people only wake up to it as they're getting lives destroyed.

There's a lot of value in just listing the train of abuses.
