Joe is interviewed on the David Knight show on Infowars.com with tips and some traps to be aware of as tax day is imminent. Found here.
Laura Ingraham, host of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, invited Joe on her show for a segment on yet another IRS scandal, this one exposed by investigative journalist Terence P. Jeffrey of CNSnews.com in his March 16th, 2018 article entitled "IRS Documented 1.3M Identity Thefts by Illegal Aliens; Can’t Say It Referred Any for Prosecution." Jeffrey's article explains how more than 1.3 million cases from 2011 through 2016 have been documented whereby Americans have had their identities stolen - stolen largely by illegal aliens who have stolen and used their social security numbers. The article also pointed out the existence of 1.2 million additional cases of "refund fraud" by illegals just during 2017 processing season alone ZERO of these cases were referred for prosecution. To learn more about how dangerous and pervasive identity theft is in connection with IRS and income tax matters, as well as identity theft in general, check out these reports:

See Joe describe the IRS as the "original deep state operation" and how much he would love for President Trump to allow him to wade into the deepest, muckiest part of the swamp where the IRS resides in order to help clean it up.

Many Americans ask themselves why the IRS is so corrupt and has so much power but can not seem to find the answer. The principle reason the IRS is so corrupt and has so much power is that the federal government, with the cooperation of a complicit controlled corporate media and tax professional lobby, has deceived the American people into believing federal law requires them to pay a federal income tax on the money they earn while living and working in the USA when in fact no such law exists. Many Americans have heard the phrase "taxation without representation" but in this case what we have is "taxation without legislation." Yes, there are thousands of pages of federal income tax laws and income tax regulations but over the last 100 years, especially over the last 80 years, the federal government, particularly the IRS, has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the limited or even non-existent application of the federal income tax laws to the average American living and working in the United States. You are encouraged to review the "What's This All About?" section of this website for a brief overview of the manner in which the American people have been deceived and taken advantage of regarding the scope and nature of the federal income tax system.
Joe's purpose has never been to push Americans into a one-on-one battle with the IRS because in the majority of one-on-one battles with this 800 lb. gorilla the gorilla usually wins. Certainly, with sufficient education and preparation, even 800 lb gorillas can be vanquished. What Joe does advocate is for Americans to educate themselves, their families and their friends about how the American people have been deceived, intimidated and forced to pay an income tax for which no law was ever passed requiring such payment. Imagine how upset Americans get over the nerve of someone cutting them off on the freeway or the nerve of an auto mechanic cheating them on a repair bill. Isn't deceiving, intimidating and forcing trillions of dollars of hard-earned property out of the hands the American people worthy of a major degree of concern, especially when the federal government does not need such taxation in order to fund its operations?
The IRS’ own collection procedures are abusive enough but now the IRS is even using private debt collectors to harass the American public. Joe Banister explains in this interview how the present day “publicans” of the IRS target the most vulnerable among us — the poor. The IRS's history of deceiving and abusing the American people, stealing their property and being used as a sledge hammer against them by elected and appointed government tyrants, continues unabated. Check out this informative interview here and if you would really like to understand why the IRS is so unaccountable to the American people, learn more here.
[This is a repost of my November 30th, 2016 article, made all the more relevant given the recent admissions of fault the IRS has made in a recent lawsuit against the agency.]
I served as an IRS Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent from November of 1993 through February of 1999. Bill Clinton came into office in 1993, was impeached in 1998 and left office in early 2001, so I was very familiar with the numerous scandals that plagued Bill and Hillary Clinton, particularly two scandals that involved Hillary:
From my perspective as a criminal investigator at the time, I was appalled at the mounting evidence of corruption connected to both Bill and Hillary Clinton not only during Bill’s federal service, but the corruption that surrounded them in Arkansas as well. The documentary “The Clinton Chronicles” and other films delve into the Clintons’ suspicious conduct:
After I resigned from the IRS in 1999, I joined Robert Schulz and thousands of other concerned Americans working very hard to expose the true nature and extent of the average American’s federal income tax obligations, including taking many trips back to Washington, D.C. to provide evidence and testimony to the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government that proved beyond any doubt that the average American living and working in the U.S.A. is not liable to pay the federal income tax nor required to file federal income tax returns.
In particular, I was part of a group of concerned citizens who went to the White House Executive Office Building on April 13, 2000 to provide evidence and testimony to Clinton Administration Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman regarding the illegal manner in which the federal income tax is administered and enforced.
After leaving the White House, Robert Schulz and I traveled to the U.S. Capitol to meet with and deliver petitions to House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s top aide William Koetzle and then with Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott’s top aide Keith Hennessey. We concluded our petitioning efforts with delivery of income tax petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sadly, the Clinton Administration would disappoint once again by refusing to investigate the evidence and testimony we provided, culminating in Jason Furman’s famous statement:
"The legality of the income tax is not a high priority item at the White House. Therefore, we have decided not to participate in any conference on the subject."
In hindsight, we have come to learn that the Clintons and their aides were too busy with serving their own self-interests and covering up their scandalous behavior s to examine concrete evidence that the IRS was lying to the American people about the true scope and nature of their income tax obligations.
Apparently, the Clintons and their aides were not the only government servants whose priority of keeping a lid on their scandalous behavior was higher than rescuing hundreds of millions of Americans from being forced to file income tax returns the law never made them liable to file or forced to pay an income tax the law never made them liable to pay. House Speaker Dennis Hastert may very well have shied away from his constitutional duty to investigate the income tax scam due to fears his child molestation practices as a high school teacher and football coach would be discovered. Eventually, Hastert’s attempts to cover up his crimes, crimes that prompted a federal judge at the time of his sentencing to refer to him as a “serial child molester”, led to a 15-month prison sentence.
To think that we in the tax honesty movement sincerely approached people like House Speaker Hastert, begging his office to investigate IRS crimes against the American people, unaware that Hastert was long-ago corrupted and co-opted, pains me greatly. If someone like Hastert, with such a volume of skeletons in his closet, could rise to level of Speaker Of The U.S. House Of Representatives, how likely is it that many elected officials have similar skeletons? How likely is it that elected officials with skeletons in their closets will NOT have their oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution nor the interests of their constituents anywhere near the top of their respective priority lists? How widespread is blackmail against such co-opted elected officials? There is growing evidence that blackmail of such officials is widespread.
After so many years in various high offices, the evidence is overwhelming that Bill and Hillary have spent most of their respective careers enriching themselves rather than taking care of the needs of the average working American.
I am very, very grateful that the Clintons did not return to the White House. However, in addition to the Office of the President doing nothing to investigate the misapplication of the income tax laws against the American people (including the George W. Bush Administration), the Congress, the Courts and the federal bureaucracy continue largely to shield the IRS and its management from being held accountable for breaking the law and violating the rights of law-abiding Americans. Ongoing investigations of even the latest despicable IRS targeting of conservative groups have gone on for over three years and I don’t know of a single firing, impeachment or jail term for Lois Lerner, Commissioner Greg Koskinen or the hundreds of bureaucrats involved in this scandal.
I know we are all tired of fighting government corruption but until enough Americans demand that the IRS stop illegally enforcing the income tax against Americans who are not liable to pay it, the IRS will continue to be a power unto itself. We need to come to grips with the likelihood that much of the top echelons of our federal government are either innately corrupt or blackmailed into corruption.
I hope that more Americans than ever will petition the new Trump Administration demanding an investigation into IRS administration and enforcement of the federal income tax, a tax that is illegally assessed against and collected from Americans to whom the law never made liable to pay in the first place – truly a case of “taxation without legislation”. We may never have a better chance to petition a presidential administration not tethered to corrupt special interests nor subjected to blackmail.
Don’t forget that Robert Schulz, Chairman of the We The People Foundation For Constitutional Education, his dedicated family, staff and thousands of volunteers, have already assembled an unprecedented array of evidence, testimony and petitioning proving the illegal application of the federal income tax system. Sadly, the federal government has either turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to this evidence or, in the case of the IRS and the Department of Justice, actively worked to discredit and destroy those who have tried to bring this evidence to the attention of the American people at large.

Most of all, we must pray that God will deliver us from this evil income tax system and send us leaders who possess the courage to expose and defeat it.

Today, October 13th, 2017, is the 100th anniversary of the "Miracle of the Sun" that took place in Fatima, Portugal. I would guess many people, even many Catholics, are unaware of this miracle that was witnessed by approximately 70,000 people, including reputable witnesses such as Portuguese science professor Dr. Jose Maria de Almeida Garrett and even the pro-government, anti-clerical newspaper "O Seculo" that reported on events that day. More amazing is that the reason there were 70,000 people present to witness the Miracle of the Sun is because the Blessed Virgin Mary told three Portuguese children it would happen two months before it happened. A sampling of details of that day and of eye witness accounts is found here:
