Owe IRS $0, Go to Jail

Brian writes at http://LiveFreeLiveNatural.com that Doreen Hendrickson is spending what might be the last weekend she has with her family for a few years. On Monday, a jury is expected to return a verdict on her contempt charge. If she’s found guilty, she will go to jail.
The IRS put her husband Pete in jail for 3 years; now they’re anxious to do the same to Doreen.
Doreen’s charge is not signing a Form 1040. A 1040 is a legal document that you sign under penalty of perjury:
quote, “Under penalties of perjury, I declare that I have examined this return and accompanying schedules and statements, and to the best of my knowledge and belief, they are true, correct, and complete.”
It is signed under penalties of perjury because a Form 1040 is your sworn legal testimony regarding your income taxes. If you lie on a form 1040, you will go to jail. Doreen can’t sign the 1040 because she doesn’t believe it to be true, correct, and complete. The 1040s are for 2002, ‘03, and ‘08. The total taxes due using the government’s figures are $0. That’s Zero. There is no tax due.
Doreen is not charged with being a tax protester. She is not charged with falsifying a document. She is not charged with evading taxes, or willful failure to file.
She’s charged with contempt for not signing a form. A form which, if she is forced to sign it, will cause her to commit perjury.
She offered to sign the form with the words “under duress” written in next to her name. The IRS said not good enough.
She offered to sign under the line so that she would not be subject to perjury charges. The IRS said not good enough.
Judge Victoria Roberts suggested that Doreen sign the form and attach an affidavit stating her reasons for not wanting to sign. Doreen said “Great!” and went home to write up the affidavit. The IRS called: not good enough.
The IRS demands Doreen sign the form on the line, swearing it to be true, correct, and complete even though she does not believe that. The IRS is demanding she change her testimony to suit them. It is dictating her testimony.
In addition, Judge Roberts lied to the jury that the jury may not judge the law. The judge said that SHE will tell them what the law is and they must judge the case based on the what she says the law is.
This is a flat out lie, one being told by judges all over the country.
The fact is that it is the jury’s obligation to judge the law by way of jury nullification. The first chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Jay, said, quote, “The jury has the right to judge both the law as well as the fact in controversy.” John Adams echoed the same sentiment, as did 2 major Supreme Court cases in the 20th century: US v Moylan, and US v Dougherty, which declared, quote, “the jury has an unreviewable and irreversible power… to acquit in disregard of the instructions on the law given by the trial judge.”
The IRS requested that the judge give the following instruction: quote,
“It is not a defense to the crime of contempt that the court order was unlawful or unconstitutional.”
From this ridiculous statement, it follows that anyone in authority can order you to do something illegal and you have to do it. Unbelievably, the judge actually gave this instruction.
The jury is deliberating now. They spent two hours on Friday doing so and will return on Monday morning to continue. The fact they did not reach a verdict quickly means that at least one juror is arguing for Doreen, for sanity and for common sense to prevail.
Doreen’s husband, Pete, wrote a book a few years ago called Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America.* The IRS tried to ban the book for years, suing Pete four times, but they were unsuccessful. They did get to put Pete in jail for 3 years, however, convicting him of filing fraudulent documents. Now they are going after Doreen.
