'Cracking the Code' author draws prison term

One of the many people I've met during my campaigns and political activism is Pete Hendrickson from Michigan. Pete has written a VERY popular book entitled CRACKING THE CODE which explains - very convincingly I might add - how the IRS tax system really works. I've read the book several times and I highly recommend it. Naturally, the "fed-gov" is doing it's best to put my friend Pete in prison for telling the truth.

'Cracking the Code' author draws prison term in tax fraud case
Paul Egan / The Detroit News

Detroit -- A man whose claims that most earnings are not subject to income tax have drawn national attention was sentenced to two years and nine months in prison Monday by a federal judge.

Peter Hendrickson, 54, of Commerce Township, whose views on federal income tax are detailed in his book "Cracking the Code," was found guilty of 10 counts of filing false documents by a federal jury in October.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen bristled when a courtroom full of Hendrickson's supporters burst into applause after the defendant's pre-sentencing speech and said Hendrickson has taken on the mantle of an anti-tax hero.

"You simply do not respect the law and do not respect your obligation as a citizen to follow the law," Rosen told Hendrickson.

He also ordered Hendrickson to pay a $25,000 fine, close to $30,000 in restitution, and repay the cost of his prosecution. After he is released from prison, Hendrickson is to serve six years of supervised release, Rosen said.

Hendrickson testified at his trial that income tax is an excise tax and excise taxes may only be levied upon those who benefit from a government privilege, such as a government job. But the government called expert witnesses from the Internal Revenue Service who rejected Hendrickson's arguments.

Mark Daly, an attorney with the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, D.C., said Hendrickson's books and website postings have convinced many others that they are not subject to income tax.

About 10,000 income tax returns have been filed in a manner similar to what Hendrickson uses, Daly said. "The court needs to send a message to this large community."

Hendrickson, who was allowed to remain free on bond until the Bureau of Prisons asks him to report, said he will appeal both his convictions and his sentence.

"I accept the possibility" of going to prison, Hendrickson said outside court. However, "I think the issues on appeal are extremely strong."

It's unfortunate that he allowed the judge to classify him as a "citizen" instead of as a "people".
Also, he should have counterclaimed the government in a "court of record".
Had he done those two things, the outcome could have been considerably different.

However, it's not too late.

The court was an "inferior court" that was a "court not of record".  He needs to do a collateral attack by filing an action for trespass in a "superior court" which is a court of record.  That would put him in control of the process.

All of that is explained at the website.

The Truth Marches On...

A hand picked jury,  a Federal Judge, a Federal Prosecutor and a prison sentence does not change the TRUTH of the matter.  The Federal Income Tax is unlawfully applied and we're still "Non-Taxpayers".    What did Churchill say?...""Truth is incontrovertible. Ignorance can deride it; panic may resent it; malice may destroy it, but in the end - there it is."

Jury Nullification

I think the thing we need to do (and I have been doing lately) is really pushing hard to inform people that Jury Nullification is not only the right of the Jury but it is their DUTY when confronted with Government Usurpation of our Inalienable Rights.

Judges, Prosecutors and Lawyers can prattle about "The Law" all they like BUT THE PURPOSE OF OUR COURT SYSTEM IS JUSTICE! Not their GD laws, or their jobs, or their careers, or their pride, or their personal vendettas.

The Marxist Manifesto is the source of the Graduated Income Tax - NOT the US Constitution.


jury not allowed to see law

The jury asked to see the laws referenced in the case. The judge refused. Instead he told them, in his own words, what the law "is"... A courtroom is not about finding truth and justice. It is about who can better manipulate the system. Shameful.
