No Fed', No Tax!

President Andrew Jackson

Did you know...
If there was No "Fed," there would be no need for a direct tax.

Without the central bank (Federal Reserve Banks) siphoning off the wealth of our nation, there would be no need for a personal income tax.

President Andrew Jackson booted out the central bank; his speech can be read here:


This battle fought by Jackson was a huge deal back then and he refused to back down. Jackson was the last honest president with the guts to stand up to the international bankers who are literally stealing US blind.

"The greatest party battle of Jackson's presidency centered around the Second Bank of the United States, a private corporation but virtually a Government-sponsored monopoly. When Jackson appeared hostile toward it, the Bank threw its power against him.

"Clay and Webster, who had acted as attorneys for the Bank, led the fight for its recharter in Congress. "The bank," Jackson told Martin Van Buren, "is trying to kill me, but I will kill it!" Jackson, in vetoing the recharter bill, charged the Federal Reserve Bank with undue economic privilege.

"His views won approval from the American electorate; in 1832 he polled more than 56 percent of the popular vote and almost five times as many electoral votes as Clay."

Please note that the words "a private corporation but virtually a Government sponsored monopoly" comes directly from the White House's web site.
What a huge admission!

On line, you can also read Congressman Louis McFadden's indictment on the Federal Reserve Corporation. It is a very concise explanation of how the international banking cartel has been sacking this country's wealth since 1913.

Don't be fooled by this chant around the country for a flat tax, a consumption tax, sales tax or any other kind of personal income tax. There is absolutely no authority in the U.S. Constitution to implement any of these forms of taxation without apportionment. It is for this reason and this reason alone, that when it became apparent that the 16th Amendment was not going to be ratified by the states, fraud was committed and it was simply "proclaimed" ratified by then Secretary of State Philander Knox.

We don't need any direct taxation and these popular mantras are just new lies to replace old lies. Any one of these forms of taxation will still feed the cancer: the central bank. Any one of these forms of taxation is just another way to fleece the American people to enrich the pockets of the international banking cartel. Please consider the words of Congressman Ron Paul:

"Strictly speaking, it probably is not necessary for the federal government to tax anyone directly; it could simply print the money it needs. However, that would be too bold a stroke, for it would then be obvious to all what kind of counterfeiting operation the government is running. The present system combining taxation and inflation is akin to watering the milk: too much water and the people catch on."

Please don't fall for these alternative taxing SCHEMES. The banking cartel doesn't care what form it is they fleece your hard earned dollars (flat tax, fair tax, sales tax, etc.) - just as long as they continue to steal from us:

Beware alternative taxing schemes

Make IRS check payable to stockholders of private Fed

April 15 ... again

What we need to do is take away the magical money machine called the "Fed," which will force Congress to live within its means and fund only those activities specifically enumerated by the supreme law of the land in Art. 1, § 8 of the U.S. Constitution.

National ID Card a Farewell to Freedom!

A Farewell to Freedom

Did you know...
The national identity card which becomes law in May 2008, is an ID card that will use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips which are essentially homing devices used to track people. America is moving headlong into a fascist police state. Don't we have any rights to say NO! Come on America citizens... Wake up! Every state should "Just say NO!" Maine has declined this invasion of privacy, why shouldn't all states? I for one refuse to say Farewell to Freedom.

The Federal Reserve Banks First Investors/Owners

Did you know...
Contrary to belief the Federal Reserve Banks are NOT owned by our government but by rich private investors who take your tax dollars then loans the money to our government
with an added percentage just like your credit cards. The IRS is not a legal branch of the Federal Government. You volunteer to give these rich men a part of your money when you sign a w-2 form. Since this money does NOT go to our government opt not to volunteer. You cannot buy or own stock in the privately owned Federal Reserve. That privilege is reserved for the money interests, i.e., the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and other global elites. The federal debt cannot be paid down, much less paid off. None of these alternative taxing schemes will make a dent in the expanding bubble that is going to burst because the banking cartel can't continue to prop up the debt load much longer. The day of reckoning is coming. Get the facts ... because knowledge is power.It's your money, keep it in your pocket. It's your choice... Wake up America and read your tax books.

Debt of the USA

Will Uncle Sam ever be free of this Ball and Chain?

Did you know...
The reason the USA is in so much debt is because the USA Government does
NOT get the tax dollars you pay as Federal Tax. It goes to a privately owned bank.
Just before John F. Kennedy was assassinated he was working on getting this tax eliminated. He purposed to having our own money press so the US government would not have to borrow from the Federal Reserve Banks.

Who really killed J.F.Kennedy

Did you know...
This question is still asked even though there is proof of who masterminded the assassination?
Fear keeps those who know the truth imprisoned in silence.

Womens High Heels

Did you know...
The average increase in the protrusion of a woman's buttocks is 25% when she wears high heels. The high heel may have been invented by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). The first high heels were wore by men to make them taller. Most of all womens fashions were taken from men or were fashioned from menswear.

The First Car

Henry Fords First Car 1896

Did You Know...
The first car was NOT invented by Henry Ford?
It was a product of Karl Benz (Carl Benz)
In 1885 Karl Benz, a German mechanical engineer, designed and built the world's first practical automobile to be powered by an internal-combustion engine. The first car had only 3 wheels,one in front and 2 in back.
America's first gasoline-powered automobile was the 1891 Lambert car invented by John W. Lambert. The Duryea Brothers founded America's first company to manufacture and sell gasoline-powered vehicles. Then Henry Ford came along and improved the assembly line for automobile manufacturing (Model-T), invented a transmission mechanism, and popularized the gas-powered automobile. So most of the work was done before Henry even got started. Feeling smarter now?

First Harley-Davidsom Motorcycle

The First Harley Davidson Motorcycle

Did you know...
That the motorcycle was invented before the car?
IN 1903 William S. Harley, age 21, and Arthur Davidson, age 22, joined forces to make available to the public the first production of the Harley-Davidson® motorcycle? The bike was built to be a racer. The factory in which they worked was a 10 x 15-foot wooden shed with the words "Harley-Davidson Motor Company" crudely scrawled on the door. BUT this was not the first American motorcycle. In 1867, Sylvester Howard Roper invented a two-cylinder, steam-engine motorcycle that was powered by coal. This is considered the first motorcycle. He also invented a steam engine car. Then in 1885, Nicholaus August Otto who invented the first gas-engine attached the engine to a wooden bike and it was the first gas powered motorcycle.

The White House

The White House as it looks Today

Did you know...
Construction of the "White House" began when the first cornerstone was laid in October of 1792 by the Irish-born architect James Hoban who won a gold medal for his practical and handsome design. The construction was overseen by then President George Washington but he never live in it. It was not until 1800, when the White House was near completion that our 2nd President John Adams and his wife, Abigail, moved in.
Later in 1814 the White House was burned by the British during the war of 1812 which was restored and the smoke-stained gray stone walls were painted white. The people began to refer to it as the White House. The exterior walls are the original walls constructed more than 200 years ago. During this time the White House was known as the "President's Palace," the "President's House," and the "Executive Mansion." President Theodore Roosevelt officially gave the White House its current name in 1901. Several additions have been made to the main building, including the west wing (1902) which houses the oval office, the east wing (1942), a penthouse, as well a bomb shelter that was added in 1952. It now has 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, and 6 levels. There are 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 8 staircases, and 3 elevators. It sits on 18 acres located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington D.C.
