TPP Deal Funded by Bankers! Feb 23/14

Posted at 9:00 am by Lee Fang

Officials tapped by the Obama administration to lead the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations have received multimillion dollar bonuses from CitiGroup and Bank of America, financial disclosures obtained by Republic Report show.

Stefan Selig, a Bank of America investment banker nominated to become the Under Secretary for International Trade at the Department of Commerce, received more than $9 million in bonus pay as he was nominated to join the administration in November. The bonus pay came in addition to the $5.1 million in incentive pay awarded to Selig last year.

Michael Froman, the current U.S. Trade Representative, received over $4 million as part of multiple exit payments when he left CitiGroup to join the Obama administration. Froman told Senate Finance Committee members last summer that he donated approximately 75 percent of the $2.25 million bonus he received for his work in 2008 to charity. CitiGroup also gave Froman a $2 million payment in connection to his holdings in two investment funds, which was awarded “in recognition of [Froman's] service to Citi in various capacities since 1999.”

Many large corporations with a strong incentive to influence public policy award bonuses and other incentive pay to executives if they take jobs within the government. CitiGroup, for instance, provides an executive contract that awards additional retirement pay upon leaving to take a “full time high level position with the U.S. government or regulatory body.” Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, the Blackstone Group, Fannie Mae, Northern Trust, and Northrop Grumman are among the other firms that offer financial rewards upon retirement for government service.

Froman joined the administration in 2009. Selig is currently awaiting Senate confirmation before he can take his post, which collaborates with the trade officials to support the TPP.

The controversial TPP trade deal has rankled activists for containing provisions that would newly empower corporations to sue governments in ad hoc arbitration tribunals to demand compensation from governments for laws and regulations they claim undermine their business interests. Leaked TPP negotiation documents show the Obama administration is seeking to prevent foreign governments from issuing a broad variety of financial rules designed to stem another bank crisis.

A leaked text of the TPP’s investment chapter shows that the pact would include the controversial investor-state dispute resolution system. A fact-sheet provided by Public Citizen explains how multi-national corporations may use the TPP deal to skirt domestic courts and local laws. The arrangement would allows corporations to go after governments before foreign tribunals to demand compensations for tobacco, prescription drug and environment protections that they claim would undermine their expected future profits. Last year, Senator Elizabeth Warren warned that trade agreements such as the TPP provide “a chance for these banks to get something done quietly out of sight that they could not accomplish in a public place with the cameras rolling and the lights on.”

Others have raised similar alarm.

“Not only do US treaties mandate that all forms of finance move across borders freely and without delay, but deals such as the TPP would allow private investors to directly file claims against governments that regulate them, as opposed to a WTO-like system where nation states (ie the regulators) decide whether claims are brought,” notes Boston University associate professor Kevin Gallagher.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – A commission looking into the Vatican bank briefed Pope Francis and top cardinals on its findings on Tuesday ahead of a papal decision about what to do with the institution that has embarrassed the Holy See for decades.

The Vatican commission, which the pope set up in June, gave Francis and his eight-member advisory board of cardinals from around the world a three-hour briefing.

Afterward, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said no decisions on the bank’s future had been taken.

Corporatocracy Injustice Feb 16/14

"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty!"  -  Thomas Jefferson

Cdsapi’s Added Comments: 
This article should convince everyone of three things:
1.  that grassroots individual/collective initiatives CAN (and MUST) make a difference;
2.  that grassroots individual/collective initiatives and involvement are absolutely essential in this battle against legalistic Corporatocracy, anti-democratic enslavement.
3.  That we cannot surrender/lose grassroots democratic infrastructures - the legal ability to protect our food sources, to grow our own food and to determine the conditions that are essential to our lives at the individual and local level.

If anyone still wonders what “One World Government” looks like, the last decades have provided us very sobering, mind-boggling examples and insights.

This is literally a “life and death” battle – and even though “food is central to our survival”, this battle involves much more that just our food – it involves retaining local democratic control over every aspect of our lives.

This is a battle for the PROTECTION of the ESSENTIALS for LIFE, the integrity of our society and CIVILization - or whether we devolve into decadent Corporate/Wealth Dictatorship and the “legalistic evaporation of democratic infrastructures”.

Please pass this information on - this is an APPEAL for personal involvement – everyone to the level of his/her own talents and abilities – but GET INVOLVED! 
Educating and informing is a prerequisite beginning.  And we can all do that.

This is also a profound Thank-You to all those who have already fought so valiantly, and whose determination and dedication has led to the initiation and mobilization of this “Movement of Movements” that has accomplished a now-temporary slowing, but hopefully permanent-halting of this arrogantly crushing Corporate-Domination Steamroller.

Welcome to the “Movement of Movements”.  Get your friends and neighbors on board too!

Food Fights, Corporate Trade Agreements,and States’ Rights:
Democracy  or  Corporatocracy?

By Ronnie Cummins

Organic Consumers Association,
February 6, 2014

http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_29258.cfm

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Genetic Engineering page, and our Politics & Democracy page.

Along with campaigns against fracking and climate change, perhaps the largest and most dynamic grassroots movement in North America today is the anti-genetic engineering, Millions Against Monsanto food movement.

Last May and October, as part of a global “March Against Monsanto,” over a million protestors, many for the first time, marched and picketed in hundreds of cities and towns across North America, calling for mandatory labels or bans on GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).

In Mexico, a massive coalition of over 300 urban, rural and indigenous organizations have successfully mobilized public opinion and the Federal courts to ban, at least temporarily, the commercial planting of Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn and other GMOs.

In Canada, the Canadian Biotechnology Action Movement (CBAN), the organic food community and environmental groups are protesting against the spread of GM corn, canola, soy and sugar beets, and suing the government over the legalization of a new, highly controversial, genetically engineered salmon that threatens the livelihoods of traditional fishing and indigenous communities.

Meanwhile in the U.S., the heartland of genetic engineering and industrial/chemical agriculture, a growing corps of organic and natural health activists, utilizing state and county ballot initiatives, grassroots legislative lobbying, consumer boycotts and street protests, have forced Monsanto, the biotech industry, and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) to go on the defensive.

USA Food Fight over GMOs Intensifies

Confronted in the U.S. with the inevitability of mandatory state GMO food labeling laws — laws that will likely, as in Europe, drive GMOs off supermarket shelves — industrial food and biotech corporations are in a panic.  After being forced to spend $70 million, and then barely defeating (51-49%) two citizen ballot initiatives in California and Washington State, Big Food and biotech’s front group, the GMA, is facing criminal charges in Washington State for illegally laundering over $11 million in campaign donations.  The GMA engaged in this blatant money laundering to shield its members, Big Food Inc. and their brands, including Coca-Cola (Honest Tea and Odwalla), Pepsi (Frito-Lay and Naked Juice), General Mills (Cheerios, Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm), Kellogg’s (Kashi), Kraft, Dean Foods (Horizon, White Wave), from consumer wrath and marketplace boycotts over the GMO labeling issue.

Sensing defeat in upcoming ballot initiatives and legislative labeling battles in Vermont, Oregon and other states, the GMA and the factory farm lobby recently tried to insert a controversial clause into the 2013-18 Farm Bill.  The “King Amendment,” named for its author, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), would have taken away the long-established right of states to regulate agricultural production practices in their jurisdictions, likely undermining future mandatory labeling of GMOs, and meat and other products produced on factory farms.  A massive coalition of animal welfare, organic and anti-GMO networks, supported by numerous state legislators and state Attorney Generals, led by the Humane Society of the U.S., (HSUS) helped convince the U.S. Senate to kill the King Amendment in January.  A similar anti-consumer, anti-right-to-know Farm Bill amendment to nullify mandatory “Country of Origin” labeling for meat, fish, produce and nuts failed at the same time.

Frontline Battles in Oregon

In Oregon, where a decisive GMO labeling ballot initiative will go before voters in November 2014, and several counties have proposed GMO bans, the battle lines have been clearly drawn.  Threatened by 2014 ballot initiatives in four counties calling for the banning of genetically engineered crops, the Governor and pro-biotech legislators, in October 2013, rammed through a last-minute provision designed to strip counties and local communities of the right to ban or restrict the growing of GMO crops. SB 633, dubbed the “Oregon Monsanto Protection Act” by critics, is part of the final 2013 state appropriations bill.  Specifically, SB 633 prohibits local governments from enacting or enforcing any measures that “regulate agricultural, flower, nursery and vegetable seeds or their products.”

Jackson County, Ore., which had already qualified a GMO ban initiative for the May 2014 ballot prior to the passage of SB 633, was exempted from the Monsanto Protection Act.  As a result, Jackson County will be at the center of a crucial community rights vs. corporate rights battle in May.

But Jackson County may not be going it alone.  Angered by Monsanto and agribusiness stomping on their traditional community rights, residents in three other Oregon counties — Benton, Lane, and Josephine — are attempting to place initiatives on the ballot that would nullify the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act, and affirm that community rights, not corporate rights, should be sovereign under the law.

A similar battle over community rights and home rule is unfolding in Hawaii, where a grassroots-powered Kauai county ordinance has placed heavy restrictions on GMOs and pesticide corporations, and where Hawaii County (Kona) has passed an outright ban on new GMO crops.  Six counties in the U.S. have now banned the planting of GMOs — four in California (Mendocino, Marin, Trinity, and Santa Cruz); one in Washington State (San Juan County); and one in Hawaii (Kona).  In addition, a number of cities and towns in Maine, Colorado and California have banned genetically engineered crops.

Industry Fights Back against Community Rights Movements

Approximately 1,000 counties in the U.S. have explicit authority in their state constitution to allow and uphold citizen ballot initiatives.  Fearing that more and more counties will launch these initiatives, factory farm and biotech interests in at least a dozen states have passed so-called “Right-to-Farm” legislation designed to protect the interests of corporate agribusiness, over those of local citizens.  And in Hawaii and Jackson County, Ore., where there are active initiatives in play, the biotech industry and the Farm Bureau are now pouring money into campaigns to defeat those initiatives.

In late 2013, the powerful GMA began lobbying the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and now Congress to eliminate states’ rights to pass GMO labeling laws on GMOs.  The GMA, according to leaked documents, is pleading with the FDA to derail the growing anti-GMO movement with “voluntary” federal labeling, make-believe safety monitoring, and legalization of the widespread industry practice of fraudulently advertising and labeling GMO-tainted foods as “natural” or “all natural” — steps so outrageous that even FDA bureaucrats appear stymied, given the present level of public anger and concern.

Compounding their reputation as ruthless bullies, the biotech industry and GMA lobbyists continue to threaten states like Vermont, New Hampshire, Maryland, and Oregon with expensive lawsuits if they dare pass GMO labeling laws.

While heavily-armed St. Louis police were arresting “Occupy Monsanto” protestors outside corporate headquarters, and a shareholder resolution was introduced for the company to support GMO labeling, the embattled CEO of Monsanto, Hugh Grant, sheepishly admitted to investors on January 28, “We simply haven’t engaged enough at the level we should have with all of our audiences, and for that, we apologize… we need to do more.”

In the same week, Wired magazine and Mother Jones both reported that Monsanto is apparently giving up on marketing new gene-spliced vegetable and grain crops (except for dicamba-resistant soybeans and RNAi corn), opting instead for high-tech, and less controversial “marker assisted” crossbreeding.

Other major biotech corporations such as Syngenta, Bayer, Dow, BASF, and Dupont are following this same path, investing the bulk of their research and development in marker-assisted breeding, rather than genetic engineering.  As Mother Jones and Wired explain, Monsanto spokespersons admit that they have no new gene-spliced vegetables under development, reverting “instead to good old-fashioned crossbreeding, the same technology that farmers have been using to optimize crops for millennia."

Crushing Local Democracy with Corporate Trade Agreements

Fearing the spread of citizen activism, ballot initiative and community rights ordinances, major food corporations and biotech firms, joined by Big Pharma, multinational banks, and the fossil fuel industry, have been single-mindedly lobbying for approval of several new sweeping, secretly-negotiated international trade agreements, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). These agreements, full of anti-consumer and anti-worker provisions, also grant multinational corporations the sovereign right to nullify local, state and national food labeling, food safety, Fair Trade, Buy Local, labor rights, indigenous, and environmental protection laws.  
In an unprecedented demonstration of North American and international solidarity and online/grassroots action, a broad coalition of anti-GMO, environmental, Fair Trade, and labor activists seem to have derailed the TPP and TAFTA, at least for the moment, preventing President Obama from ramming the TPP through Congress, utilizing so-called “Fast Track” authority.

From the activist standpoint, the recent victories on the GMO and TPP “fast track” fronts are welcome news.  A critical mass of millions of people, informed, determined and united -- online and on the ground, locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally -- are proving, through collective action, that “we the people” can indeed battle, and at times, defeat the Corporatocracy and its indentured politicians, PR flacks and media minions.

The growing strength of this “Movement of Movements” provides hope in desperate times, that by:
- aggressively framing issues,  
- capitalizing on divisions among the elite,  
- utilizing the power of social media,  
- building broad coalitions,  
- carrying out boycotts,  
- mobilizing street protests,  
-and engaging in direct democracy tactics that bypass corrupt federal government officials and politicians (by using county and state ballot initiatives),
the global grassroots can begin to overcome the dictatorship of Monsanto and the Corporatocracy.

The broader hope is that this embryonic Movement of Movements can rise to the occasion and continue to win over the hearts and minds of the majority, addressing, not only crucial issues of food and farming and public health, but also related life or death issues such as climate change, economic justice, and militarism.

But to do this we must connect the dots between the different struggles, not only struggling for the right to know whether the food we are eating is genetically engineered or factory-farmed, but for democracy, health and sustainability on all fronts.

Without campaign finance reform, without breaking the stranglehold of large corporations and the wealthy over the media, the federal government and the judiciary, there can be no democracy.

Without dismantling the bloated infrastructure of the military-industrial complex and bringing to heel the Shadow Government of the CIA and NSA, there can be no liberty, nor the financial resources to address our life or death issues.

Without challenging the outrageous legal doctrine of “corporate personhood,” whereby corporations have more rights than the people, Americans and people everywhere will remain disenfranchised.

And without restoring and maintaining a balance of powers between nation states and transnational corporations; nation states and indigenous communities; federal governments, states and local home rule counties and municipalities; there can be no republic  -  only a Corporatocracy, an unholy alliance and dictatorship of indentured politicians, media minions, and profit-at-any-cost corporations -- driving us headlong toward climate catastrophe and economic collapse.

The battle to build a 21st Century democracy and overthrow the Corporatocracy is a battle we cannot afford to lose.

Neil Keenan Elite Update Feb 11/14

Posted on February 8, 2014by Jean

A Personal Introduction by Neil Keenan

We have been had. Nothing we have grown up believing to be real is in fact real. Connecting all the dots, it dawned on me that there was so much more behind the curtain of everything than I was led to believe. I came to believe the only thing that I could trust was real was the love of my family. My government has turned out to be one big phony corporation — a massive worldwide scam perpetrated by Zionists, Nazis, and Khazars. It has to be stopped!

My original mission was supposed to be about the theft of bonds entrusted to me; but I came to clearly see that it had to be so much more. What appears to be and what is are two different things. They are using us! The stolen bonds, although important, had to take a back seat. Humanity is calling for help, and I had to fight even if it was by myself. No one deserves to be blinded to what is happening to their life. No one deserves to be trained and treated like SHEEPLE.

I knew I had to have a team but I had no idea how to go about building one. For two years I have done this by myself. Then, gradually, many began to understand what was actually happening in the world and my team began to grow. There actually were people who thought like me! I was not alone.

Not everyone can see what is happening right before their eyes; but now many realize that something has to give — enough is enough. We can take back what was ours from the beginning.

The most electrifying moment is when thought becomes reality. Although terrifying to some, when we realize the problem is something we can touch and fight, we learn which way to move and how to attack those who would enslave us. We learn that they have weaknesses and can be taken down. And mostly we learn they are not what they claim to be.

Most importantly, the Keenan Group (the Group K Ltd), has a very able team of people, professionals by all means, who apparently have been born to fight such battles. You do not see fear in them, only resilience. They are your warriors and do what you cannot.

Most of all they understand we will take this monster apart piece by piece. And when weakened we will slay it. We have now learned who they are and how they got to where they are. We know where they hide, and we will soon be going to the doors that they hide behind. It is time to devastate them as they have been doing to us all these many years. They have used our good nature and emotions against us, kept us ignorant, and inhumanely manipulated us for their own psychopathic purposes. They will be paid visits shortly and they will fear the wrath of our people.

Group K, Ltd. will address each and every issue, and we are not just talk. The time to ACT is near. The rules of the game are changing. We will no longer play by their rules — we will follow our own rules. We have an entire world waiting to emerge as truly free people and there is no stopping it now.

When the time comes, the so-called Cabal/Illuminati will find that billions of people who they intended to wipe out will be the very ones to decide their fates: thumbs up or thumbs down. How will the people react? As for me, I will have no mercy. But this will be a decision made by a colossal group of people bearing neither kindness nor hate – only objectivity.

Do we want these kind of people living amongst us again? Do we want to have to keep an ever-vigilant eye out for another invasion by them in the future, or do we want to end it all right here, right now. You know my vote!

What you will be reading here in this post is another limb to be severed from the Cabal. One which they have used to rape and pillage us for nearly 100 years. They hid the truth well, but not well enough. The Keenan Team seized upon it and did a remarkable job of exposing it. This article is going to rock your world. It is going to make you angry, very angry. But that anger has great value when it is properly channeled.

What I suggest is that we get together as a large group and pay our senators and congressmen and bankers visits and terrorize them just by their seeing us — as they have terrorized our families, our mothers and fathers for so many long years now. Let them know they have no other way out. Let them know that their way out is through us and only us. We will create one immense defensive line, one which they dare not move against. Be visible, be vocal, be loud. To be, or not to be, that has truly become the question for us all.

I suggest we get the mom-and-pop grocery stores operating again. The large supermarkets belong to the Cabal and we can no longer support them. Whenever possible, buy local and home-grown foods and avoid the large supermarket chains — and that is always possible! Maybe in time we can put all the mom-and-pop stores together under one roof and create a Bazaar that will be fantastic for all. No Monsanto and no Wal-Mart. Have we learned our lessons yet? Big is not always better.

I want to thank the Group K Ltd. – the Keenan Team, for doing such a magnificent job. They have taken the IRS and provided you with the truth that has long been denied us.

The lampposts are getting closer and closer, don’t you think, George?

The 16th Amendment Purporting To Authorize Federal Taxation Of US Individuals Was Never Ratified By The States.

The first Federal income tax in the United States occurred during the civil war, through the passage of The Revenue Act of 1861: three percent for those making between $600 and $10,000, and five percent for those making over $10,000. This income tax was repealed ten years later.

The U.S. Supreme Court, however, ruled that the Federal income tax violated the U.S. Constitution because it was a direct tax on individuals and not apportioned between the States, required by the Constitution. The Constitution protects individuals against the abuse of Federal government power by stripping from the FEDs the power to tax individuals, knowing the power to tax is the power to destroy.

So the Federal power-seekers sought to overrule our forefathers and to empower the Federal Government, (that is, our US Federal Corporation, hereinafter, “The FEDS”) with the power to tax individuals through the 16th Amendment. The ratification of the 16th Amendment is dubious. In 1913, the same year British agents steered through Congress the FED fraud on the night before Christmas Eve, the 16th Amendment was hatched. But the founders made changing the Constitution difficult, to say the least. One of two ways to alter our founding document requires any proposed Constitutional Amendment be ratified by three-fourths of the States.

Fraud and deceit were the hallmarks of this “ratification” process. At the time there were 48 States. More than 13 States either did not ratify the 16th Amendment, or it was fraudulently reported by a State Secretary of State as ratified, when it in fact was not. (The Law That Never Was) Ohio was counted as a ratifying State, even though Ohio did not lawfully become a State until Eisenhower signed an order in the 1950s.

One Federal court has passed on some of the fraudulent ratification issues (but no Federal court has passed on all of these fraudulent issues), and it has declared that it is enough for a Secretary of a State to fraudulently report a ratification that in fact never occurred! Then this Federal court turned around and threatened attorneys that raised the illegal ratification issue with court fines if any dared raise the issue again – as if some cabal-stooge in a Secretary of State position can substitute his signature for the proper and legal ratification of an entire State — what gall! Federal Judges who placate Globalists by trampling the Constitution will have hell to pay, to be sure.

Even if the 16th Amendment had been legally passed, it did “not change the constitutional limitations which forbid any direct taxation of individuals.” (U.S. Supreme Court in Brushaber v. Union Pacific Rail Road Co. 240 U.S. 1 (1916).) Nor did the 16th Amendment purport to overrule the prohibition on direct taxation elsewhere in our Constitution.

Like every nefarious encroachment by our government, The FEDs roll it out slowly over time to acclimate us to their society-destroying power-grabbing plans. The U.S. income tax started out only soaking the rich. The Federal tax rate was in the single digits for those making under $250,000 in household income, and was capped at 15% for those making over $2 million. Today, of course, The FEDs have slowly inched their tentacles deeper and deeper into the pockets of the US middle class, at a time when the “Federal” “Reserve” “Bank” has decimated the value of the dollar down to fifteen cents.

The FED’s taxation of the people of the United States violates the protection our forefathers assured through our Constitution: that historical document created solely to check an out-of-control Federal Government. Making The FEDs the single biggest beneficiary of every middle class family paycheck has long caused our forefathers to roll over in their grave.

The IRS is Not a U.S. Government Agency: It’s a Sham Puerto Rican Trust With No Legal Authority To Collect A Dime From The People of the United States.

The IRS is Not a US Agency

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), aka the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), was never created by any Act of Congress. It is not an agency of the Department of Treasury. The only mention of the IRS appears in 31 U.S.C. Sec. 301-315 stating that the President is authorized to appoint an Assistant General Counsel in the U.S. Department of Treasury to be the Chief Counsel for the IRS.

In the 1979 case Chrysler v. Brown (441 U.S. 281), the U.S. Supreme Court admitted that, after searching back to the Civil War, no organic Act for the IRS could be found. The Guarantee Clause in the Constitution establishes a Federal rule of law (Article IV, Sec. 4). We are supposed to be a nation of laws — not a Nation of Globalists’ edicts. The IRS is not a US agency because there is no US law creating it. The IRS is a fraud, a charade, bilking us only because we’ve let them get away with it.

The IRS Is, In Actuality, Puerto Rican Trusts

The IRS is Puerto Rican Trusts operated by the Secretary of the Treasury, as the Trustee. The settler and beneficiaries of these trusts are unknown, and, conveniently enough, the Puerto Rican laws governing trusts keeps these entities secret.

Although concealed, according to US Code 31, Chapter 3, the Internal Revenue Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are all one organization.

Acquired by conquest, the US gained possession of the Philippine Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico. The Philippine Customs Administrative Act was passed by the Philippine Commission between 1900 to 1902. It was created to regulate trade with foreign countries and to impose custom duties and excise taxes. This Act created the Federal government’s first trust fund, Trust Fund #1 (US Code 31, Sec. 1321) and was administered under the general control of the Secretary of Finance and Justice.

In 1904 another Act was passed that created Trust Fund #2 and was known as The Bureau of Internal Revenue (US Code 31, Sec. 1321, Article I, Sec. 2 & 3):

“There shall be established a Bureau of Internal Revenue, the chief officer of which Bureau shall be known as the Collector of Internal Revenue. He shall be appointed by the Civil Governor, with the advice and consent of the Philippine Commission, and shall receive a salary at the rate of eight thousand pesos per annum. The Bureau of Internal Revenue shall belong to the department of Finance and Justice.”

“The Collector of Internal Revenue, under the direction of the Secretary of Finance and Justice, shall have general superintendence of the assessment and collection of all taxes and excises imposed by this Act or by any Act amendatory thereof, and shall perform such other duties as may be required by law.”

This in effect made the Customs Administrative Act within the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Internal Revenue in the Philippines, merging the two to be responsible for “all taxes and excises imposed by this Act” — import and export excise taxes.

Prior to 1940, another Bureau of Internal Revenue was created in Puerto Rico and known as Trust Fund #62. Under the Reorganization Plan #3 of 1940 (US Code 5, Section 903), the Federal Alcohol Administration (created to enforce prohibition of alcohol) was abolished and their functions transferred to the Secretary of Treasury through the BIR. Although the history has been removed from the older editions of the USC, it can be deduced that the Federal Alcohol Administration was absorbed by the Puerto Rico Trust #62.

The China Trade Act was passed between 1904 and 1938 and dealt with opium, cocaine and citric wines shipped out of China, which appeared to be administered in the Philippines by the BIR. The Code of Federal Regulations of the USA, Title 26 Internal Revenue, Chapter I, references for the first time terms such as income, credits, withholding, assessment and collection and failure to file a return. However, the entire substance of Title 26 applies to foreign individuals, foreign corporations, foreign ships, income from sources within the possessions of the United States, and citizens and domestic corporations of the US that derived income from sources within the possessions of the US.

All taxes covered by these laws were for imposts, excise taxes and duties to be collected by the BIR for narcotics, alcohol, tobacco and firearms. The IRS Act of 1939 applied to all taxes and duties collected on trade between US possessions (Philippines, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands) and foreign individuals, corporations and governments. A point of fact is that Al Capone was not jailed for income tax evasion — he was jailed for unpaid tax due on alcohol imported from Canada!

The Victory Tax Act

Passed by Congress for the years 1943 to 1944, the Victory Tax Act duped patriotic Americans into paying taxes to support winning World War II. The federal government created the clever lie that this tax applied to all Americans by sending out tax form 1040 to everyone.

In fact, only employees of the federal government, residents of the District of Columbia, residents of naval bases, residents of forts, US citizens of the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, territories and possessions were lawfully required to file and pay the Victory Tax.

When the Victory Tax law expired in 1944, the news media never announced it to the public, and so the devious Federal government simply continued sending out 1040 forms in spite of the fact that no citizen of the 50 Union States was ever liable to pay the tax in the first place.

Bureau of Internal Revenue Becomes Internal Revenue Service

In 1953, the US surrendered control over the Philippines. Many questions remain about Trusts #1 (customs duties) and Trust #2 (internal revenue), such as why they continue to be administered to this day, and who exactly are the settlers and beneficiaries of the trusts.

It is no coincidence that in 1953, the Secretary of Treasury, G.K. Humphrey, under no legal authority but his own, changed the name of the BIR to Internal Revenue Service, by signing Treasury Order 150-06. Whether Humphrey changed the BIR’s name in the Philippines or in Puerto Rico is unknown.

Without the approval of Congress or the President, Humphrey illegally turned the Trust(s) into a Department of Treasury agency. No one opposed or even so much as challenged it.

Mutual Security Act

In 1954, the US and Guam became partners under the Mutual Security Act. The IRS Code of 1954 was also passed and coordinated “Individual Income Tax” for the US and Guam. Since the Constitution forbids un-apportioned direct taxes on the people of the United States, the Federal government had to trick people into volunteering to pay taxes as U.S. citizens of either Guam, Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands.

Fast forward to 1972 when, again with no legal authority, Acting Secretary of Treasury, Charles E. Walker, signed Treasury Order 120-01, establishing The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF). Walker apparently branched the IRS, creating the BATF, and then joined them back together into one. The Federal Register, Vol. 41, #180 (1976) states: “The terms ‘Director, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division’ has been replaced by the term ‘Internal Revenue Service’.”

However, Walker then cancelled out the order by declaring:

“The terms ‘Director, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division’ and ‘Commissioner of Internal Revenue’ wherever used in regulations, rules, and instructions, and forms, issued or adopted for the administration and enforcement of the laws specified in paragraph 2 hereof, which are in effect or in use on the effective date of this Order, shall be held to mean ‘the Director’.”

Walker created the BATF from Humphrey’s Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division of the Internal Revenue Service. He then maintains that what he transferred is the same “thing” as the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. Knowing he had no authority from Congress or the President, Walker made it appear that he had done something he had not done. To compound this fraud, the Federal Register published that a person was replaced by a thing: “the term Director Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division has been replaced with the term Internal Revenue Service.”

In 1935 when the Federal Alcohol Act (prohibition) was ruled unconstitutional within the 50 States, the functions of the Federal Alcohol Administration then became administered by the Secretary of Treasury through the BIR, an offshore Trust. The BIR became the IRS, and the IRS then gave birth to the BATF. On September 15, 1976, a signature somehow turned the position of Director of the BATF into the IRS.

To summarize, there is no such organization within the Department of Treasury known as “The Internal Revenue Service” or the “Bureau of Tobacco and Firearms.” In Title 31 USC stating the laws applicable to the Department of Treasury and listing the organizations belonging to it, there is no IRS or BATF listed. However, both the IRS (Puerto Rico Trust #62) and BATF, are listed as entities “to be audited” by the Controller General and both are referred to as having office(s) in Puerto Rico.
