Former IRS Special Agent Joe Banister Speaks In Carson City, Nevada at January 6th, 2021 Election Rally
Watch Joe's speech in front of the Nevada Capitol on January 6th, 2021
(This is an update of the AgentForTruth.com April 25th, 2020 blogpost due to the extraordinary development of Youtube banning the videos providing this information.) On April 22nd, 2020, ABC affiliate Channel 23 in Bakersfield California (Kern County) broadcasted a portion of press conference held by Accelerated Urgent Care owners Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi who recommended lifting shelter-in-place orders and explained in detail why they arrived at such a conclusion. Kern County Public Health Services was later questioned about the presentation made by these doctors but the health department's response arguably did little to rebut the COVID-19 facts Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi presented. The highly informative press conference in its entirety was uploaded to YouTube on various Youtube channels and had received millions of views. Within hours of Laura Ingraham featuring Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi on her April 27th, 2020 show (beginning at 6:20 mark), YouTube banned the doctors' press conference videos. The link to Part 1 of the banned YouTube video is here and the link to Part 2 of the banned YouTube video is here. YouTube is notorious for banning videos containing factual information about which it prefers the public to remain ignorant. Thankfully, alternative video platforms that are capable of bypassing YouTube's censorship of free speech have sprung up so that vital information can still be shared with the public. You can watch the banned video of Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi's full press conference here.

The public would be wise to be very suspicious of internet platforms that censor information preventing the public from making up their own minds. When has government and corporate censorship ever been about benefiting the public? Youtube also banned videos of interviews with Joseph Banister, Former Special Agent, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, who blew the whistle on the manner in which the American public has been deceived about the scope and nature of the federal income tax.

I highly encourage you to do at least these six things:
Alex Jones, Rob Dew, David Knight, Marcos Morales, Darrin McBreen and every member of the Infowars.com team have worked very hard and sacrificed a great deal to wake up Americans to the dangers to our nation and to our world. Alex and the other hosts, faithfully supported by their production crews, have been providing a platform for my IRS whistleblowing efforts for nearly 20 years. No wonder the establishment is searching for every excuse to censor their websites and information and news platforms.
I attended the Freedom Fest convention in Las Vegas this past week. Here are some of the highlights:
My favorite part of the convention was having lunch and spending the afternoon with a group of young men and their mentor, Wiz Rouzard. Wiz is a Nevada Field Director for Americans For Prosperity.
Wiz pours his heart and soul into teaching Americans how priceless freedom is and how each and every one of us must do our part to preserve the freedoms we still have and recapture the freedoms we have lost. Wiz teaches these values to old guys like me and young people such as these fine young men I had the pleasure of meeting. May God continually bless your efforts Wiz and may God bless each of the young men you are mentoring.
There were many interesting speakers, including Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)...
There were also some very provocative and inspiring documentaries soon to be released such as Skid Row Marathon...
and "Sweden: Lessons For America?", a documentary that illustrates, among many other powerful themes, the effects of crushing, hidden taxation on a nation's economy.
The IRS Is The Original ‘Deep State’ Operation
Since the public has become increasingly aware of the dangers a “deep state” bureaucracy poses to a representative republic, Joe has begun referring to the IRS as “the original deep state operation.” Why?
IRS OVER 100 YEARS OLD - Because the Internal Revenue Service, formerly the Bureau of Internal Revenue, has been around for over 100 years.
IRS IS THE DEEPEST, MUCKIEST PART OF THE SWAMP – Because the IRS has a massive role in protecting the deep state and President Trump should therefore aim his swamp vacuum cleaner at the IRS where he will expose over 100 years of deceit and theft.
FINE-TUNED TYRANNY OPERATION - Because the IRS had a huge head start fine-tuning the federal bureaucracy to deceive the public, steal from the public, hide the ball from the public and spy on the public.
CULTURE OF FEAR - Because the Federal Reserve System needed a fear-inducing, full spectrum dominance tax bureaucracy to pay interest on the phony debt created by the Federal Reserve printing money out of thin air.
TAX POLICE VITAL COMPONENT - Because the deep state functions best when the tax police are an integral component of the deep state.
PUNISH LAW ABIDING/REWARD LAW BREAKING - Because the income tax can be and has been WEAPONIZED and used against the American people. There is really no other deep state agency that has the capability to destroy more people than the IRS. The IRS can destroy anyone from the corner grocery store clerk to election campaign personnel to the President of the United States – literally any person or group who threatens the status quo. Just a couple of examples:
SELF-CENSORSHIP - Because fear of IRS retribution leads to MASSIVE SELF-CENSORSHIP.
FURTHERS GLOBALIST TO-DOWN AGENDA – World government financed by world taxation yet not accountable to the people but only to globalist interests. People are tightly controlled and monitored through the tax system.
IMPACT OF IRS AS A DEEP STATE OPERATION
What is the IMPACT on the American People of the IRS being a DEEP STATE operation?
Equal Opportunity Tyrant – The IRS can be used to attack political enemies, no matter who is in power.
Not answerable to the people – IRS “deep state” capabilities keep the IRS in power and the federal income tax in place.
Tail Wags The Dog – How many people have you met who favor the income tax or who like the IRS? Almost nobody? Then how did such a system come into being? How does such a system stay in place if the people do not like it?
Infinite Resources Available To Propagandize The American People And Neutralize Dissent – IRS has expertly “controlled the narrative” through the media, through the tax profession, through the courts, through managing public opinion (“pay your fair share”).
Formulate, Manage And Protect A 100 Year-Old Lie – The income tax “deep state” capabilities keep the IRS in power and the federal income tax in place.
Worst American Scandal Ever – Yet, many Americans are unaware of one of the longest running and most economically devastating scandals of all time – the federal income tax.
Incentive To Lie About Reach Of Federal Income Tax? – Is it that hard to believe that the federal government would conspire to lie to the American people about the federal income tax system so that trillions of dollars of wealth could be taken out of the pockets of the American people when the federal government has lied about much smaller matters?
Facts Regarding The Federal Income Tax That Prove The IRS Is Lying To the American People

#2 - Most Working Americans Do Not Have "Income" As That Term Is Defined By The U.S. Supreme Court

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.

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.
Links To Videos of our Washington, D.C. petitioning efforts are provided below:
Joe Banister White House presentation video clip:

Delivery Of Income Tax Petition To Washington, D.C. Officials, Part 2
Delivery Of Income Tax Petition To Washington, D.C. Officials, Part 3
Delivery Of Income Tax Petition To Washington, D.C. Officials, Part 4
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.
The link to this evidence and these past efforts is here:
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.
