IRS Totalitarian Government at its Worst
I hope everyone had a wonderful President’s Day. I spent mine in research. I thought my hind end would be permanently attached to the chair! LOL! But in all seriousness the research I did was necessary.
If you haven’t seen Aaron Russo‘s movie Freedom to Fascism you need to. Never have I seen anything documented so well as to how bad things are. Aaron was neither left-wing nor right-wing, he just wanted to know. He asked the questions we all need the answers to and some of them I will give you here as I took excerpts from his movie and typed them out for you.

This is in addition to any state/city income tax you may pay AND sales taxes on consumer goods you buy. Obviously the list goes on and on. But what I’m sure you are REALLY interested in is a conversation that Aaron had with Sheldon Cohen who was a former IRS Commissioner and is former counsel to the IRS AND wrote the tax code! The conversation that follows is taken from an interview that Aaron Russo had with Sheldon Cohen:
Aaron Russo asked “And why does the IRS code (shows picture of an news article here titled 26 CFR CH. 1 (4-1-03 Edition) ) say that it is voluntary to comply, NOT mandatory?”
Sheldon Cohen, “Voluntary, that’s a euphemism we use when we talk about traffic signals, most people at 2 am, do you stop at a red light?”
Aaron Russo, “Ya”
Sheldon Cohen, “Is there a cop there?”
Aaron Russo, “Well, sometimes I don’t.” (laughing)
Sheldon Cohen, “Well, I do! And most of us do, most of us do. But that is voluntary compliance.
Aaron Russo, “That was a complete perversion of logic. Traffic laws state that it is mandatory to stop at a red light. The IRS code says it is voluntary. Voluntary and involuntary are the complete opposites of each other, yet he wants us to believe that they mean the same thing.”
Dictionary: voluntary adj.
The action undertaken of one’s own free will.
Dictionary mandatory adj.
Commanded by authority.
Your income tax is a 100% voluntary tax, and your liquor tax is a 100% mandatory tax. The situation is as different as night and day. Dwight E. Avis Head of the Alcohol, Tobacco Tax Division Bureau of Internal Revenue.
Aaron Russo asked Sheldon Cohen, “So, can the government criminally prosecute a person for information they put on their 1040?”
Sheldon Cohen, “Yes.”
Aaron Russo, “So doesn’t that violate the 5th Amendment?”
Sheldon Cohen, “No.”
Aaron Russo, “But the 5th Amendment says that I don’t have to do anything that might incriminate myself.”
Sheldon Cohen, “Well, it doesn’t incriminate you, but you can come to hell.”
Aaron Russo, “But you said before that I can be put in jail for it.”
Aaron Russo, “Isn’t it true, that the word INCOME isn’t defined anywhere in the IRS code?”
Sheldon Cohen, (LONG PAUSE)“ The law says that it has, that the government has the right to tax income from any source no matter where it finds it.”
Aaron Russo, “But the word INCOME is not defined in the code. It just says income without a definition.”
Sheldon Cohen, “That’s right.”
The courts define INCOME in the Eisner vs. Macomb as GAINS made from INCOME or PROFITS. So the supreme court has ruled that INCOME is not WAGES, it is NOT LABOR, it is derived from Corporate activity.
The Supreme Court has said your labor is your private property. When you go to work for someone it is an even exchange, there is NO GAIN.
Chief among such contracts is that of personal employment by which labor and other services are EXCHANGED for money and other forms of property. Coppage vs. Kansas 236 U.S. 1, 14 (1914)
Sheldon Cohen stated, “Title 26 requires you to pay taxes and file a return.”
Aaron Russo, “Doesn’t Title 26 have to be in compliance with the Supreme Courts decisions?”
Sheldon Cohen, “You’re going to take a 1920’s case and superimpose it on the whole of today’s revenue code that was written after it? No, that’s not …”
The Supreme Courts ruling have never been overturned.
Aaron Russo, “Can a lower court overturn a Supreme Court ruling?”
Sheldon Cohen, “No.”
Aaron Russo, “So how are they putting people in jail today when they aren’t putting a tax on their labor?” “Doesn’t the IRS code have to be in compliance with the Supreme Court ruling?”
Sheldon Cohen, “Aaron, this is a waste of time. Because whatever I say you aren’t going to believe.”
Aaron,” He’s right, I don’t believe him and neither should you.”
Sheldon Cohen refused to answer any more questions. He did state that, “You are liable because the courts say you are liable, and the courts say you are liable and that is why you are liable. “
But remember, Sheldon Cohen is talking about the LOWER COURTS which are NOT in compliance with the Supreme Court AS THEY HAVE TO BE!
When Aaron asked Sheldon Cohen if the lower courts didn’t have to be in compliance with the Supreme Court, Sheldon Cohen stated they were. Aaron then asked him, “Where?” Sheldon Cohen stammered and said, “You caught me unprepared!”
Aaron offers to come back but Sheldon doesn’t want to do that.
Aaron attempts to ask a hypothetical question but again, Cohen tells him, “You are making silly arguments here.”
Stunned, Aaron says, “How can the Supreme Court be a silly argument?”
Cohen responded with, “Because it is inapplicable.”
Aaron is astounded. “That made my heart stop! He just said that Supreme Court Decisions do not apply to the IRS. That’s the behavior you would expect from a totalitarian government maybe in China or Russia or Cuba, not from America. They were just making up the law as they went along. Now I knew the tax movement was right. The IRS thrives on intimidation and fear, not on the law. It’s no different than a criminal protection racket using brute force to extract your money from you.” Then Cohen threatened Aaron.
There is no way for me to put down here all the important information this short movie holds. It also covers the Federal Reserve Bank, another ILLEGAL entity in our country and one designed to make us, the average American, little more than slaves.
