Infowars.com interview drom December 15, 2012, featuring Joe Banister and attorney Larry Beacraft.
More evidence has just been published corroborating President Trump’s claim that he and Trump Tower were indeed placed under telephone and electronic surveillance not only during former President Obama’s term but also during President George W. Bush’s term as part of a “dragnet” surveillance program last from as early as 2004 through at least 2009 or possibly even later. A number of Trump’s employees were also monitored.
This “dragnet” surveillance program was used by domestic law enforcement personnel, including even IRS agents, to facilitate and enhance the use of an investigative method called “parallel construction”, a method in which law enforcement agencies tap into the secret surveillance database to gather all kinds of information on anyone they want to target. Once law enforcement has sufficiently milked information out of the secret surveillance database and is nearing completion of the investigation, they then create an alternative or “parallel” pathway of information and leads that prompted the investigation so that the true source of their investigative and lead development information, the secret surveillance database, is never known or discovered by judges, courts, defense attorneys and even prosecutors. The “parallel construction” of a separate set of tips, leads and information is not only deceptive but it is an egregious violation of a citizen’s constitutional right to challenge government allegations and confront government accusers. As pointed out by the Electronic Frontier Foundation:
Taken together, the Fifth and Sixth Amendments guarantee a criminal defendant a meaningful opportunity to present a defense and challenge the government's case. But this intelligence laundering deprives defendants of these important constitutional protections. It makes it harder for prosecutors to comply with their ethical obligation under Brady v. Maryland to disclose any exculpatory or favorable evidence to the defense—an obligation that extends to disclosing evidence bearing on the reliability of a government witness. Hiding the source of information used by the government to initiate an investigation or make an arrest means defendants are deprived of the opportunity to challenge the accuracy or veracity of the government's investigation, let alone seek out favorable evidence in the government's possession.
I joined with Attorney Robert Bernhoft on the Infowars.com Nightly News to discuss these nefarious “parallel construction” investigative practices that inevitably lead to egregious abuses of the rights of ordinary Americans.
Reuters reporters John Shiffman and Kristina Cooke prepared an extraordinary expose detailing how government agents are directed by their superiors to use “parallel construction” to cover up the true origins of their investigative efforts.
Sadly, these incidences of unjustified surveillance against law-abiding Americans aren’t all that hard to believe given the lies the federal government has told the American people about the true boundaries of their income tax obligations under existing federal law, which are much more limited than the feds have led the American people to believe. More on that topic here and here and here and here.
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.

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.

I attended the Trump Rally in Reno on Saturday, November 5th. Thousands of people came to the event and it was virtually standing room only.
Most may have heard by now that there was an incident at the Reno rally whereby the U.S. Secret Service rushed Donald Trump off the stage due to the presence of an allegedly armed man in the crowd. I was there in the crowd and I can tell you it was tense. There was even a couple times when it appeared there might be a stampede of people heading for the exits. For example, a man with a red shirt who was near the suspect ran through the crowd yelling that a man had a gun. That same red-shirted man ran directly towards me as he attempted to put distance between himself and the suspect and he looked frightened out of his wits. The red shirted man is described here:
( http://wtvr.com/2016/11/05/donald-trump-rushed-off-stage-reno-nevada-rally/ ).
I even interviewed a woman at the scene who said she observed what happened and she saw multiple men grab the area where the alleged gun was on the suspect and tackled him to the ground. Law enforcement officers jumped into the melee and secured and detained the suspect. See the incident here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eemJPPb8Otw
And also here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlxK90jTVBQ
Thankfully, the investigation at the scene ultimately found no evidence of a weapon and apparently a rolled up or folded cardboard sign may have been the object mistaken for a gun. Thankfully also no one appeared to be severely injured although the suspect, who was ultimately released from custody without charge, was reported to have been injured when he was taken to the ground and immobilized by men in the crowd.
There were certainly enough factors present at the scene to lead citizens and law enforcement alike to react as if a gun was indeed present. Certainly the Secret Service took no chances and rushed Mr. Trump off of the stage. Mr. Trump did return to the stage after a short time and he resumed his speech.
Of course now that we all have learned that the suspect was not armed we can all breathe a sigh of relief. However, at the time of the incident, there was quite a bit of uncertainty and turmoil, not only at the Reno rally but around the country and the world as word of a possible armed incident at a Trump rally spread across the internet.
I happened to have informed Rob Dew of Infowars.com that I was at the Reno Trump rally before the rally began. When news of the incident went out, Rob got in touch with me and arranged for me to speak with Infowars Reporters Owen Shroyer and Joe Biggs who just happened to be hosting a special election show a the Austin Infowars.com studios.
Here is Rob Dew and Alex Jones reacting to the initial reports they were receiving about the Reno rally incident and deciding to reach out to me at the rally:
Here is my interview with Infowars Reporters Owen Shroyer and Joe Biggs:
Again, thankfully no one was seriously injured. Hopefully, this incident will prompt all of us to be even more alert and vigilant in the future. I voted for Donald Trump at an early voting opportunity a few days ago. Please encourage everyone you know to do the same.
Former IRS Special Agent Brings You Billionaire's Take On The "Frustration, Anger and Confusion" That Results From Printing Money Out Of Thin Air
Steve Wynn, billionaire CEO and Chairman of the Board of Wynn Resorts based in Las Vegas, Nevada, was recently interviewed by Eric Bolling on the Hannity show. Included in Mr. Wynn’s comments was this little gem that all Americans should hear and understand:
“We take in $3.1 trillion and we spend $3.7 trillion and thats (sic) $600 billion dollar deficit at the rate of $50 billion a month our government is printing money and it’s degrading the paychecks and the living standard of every single person in America and its the cause of so much frustration, anger and confusion.”
I am grateful to Mr. Wynn for being so candid and honest about this fundamental truth that is largely hidden from public awareness – when more “money” is injected into the money supply through federal government “borrowing” from the federal reserve to “pay” for spending on bloated bureaucracies, bailouts, etc., that can’t be paid for from the tax revenue that the government takes in (this is the “printing money” concept described by Mr. Wynn), the value of the “money” in the pockets and paychecks of the American people (this is the “living standard” concept described by Mr. Wynn) diminishes and causes “frustration, anger and confusion.“
The old saying “There is no such thing as a free lunch” is applicable here. Think about it this way – If you make $4,000.00 a month, your necessary expenses are $4,000.00 per month, you have zero savings and in December you decide you want to buy $1,000.00 worth of Christmas presents, where will that money come from? If you can’t earn any more money because you are already working 60 hours per week and you won’t stop yourself from buying the presents because you refuse to accept you should not spend beyond what you bring in and no one will give it to you as a gift and if you won’t steal the money because you are not a thief, then the only other alternative is to borrow the money, which actually only compounds your problems even further because then an additional burden of debt is added to your existing difficulties, not to mention figuring out how you will pay the interest on your new debt when you have no extra money to pay the debt or the interest on the debt.
But in the case of the partnership between the federal government and the Federal Reserve, “borrowing the money” means effectively printing more Federal Reserve Notes “out of thin air” and “lending” those Federal Reserve Notes into the economy and to the federal government in order for the federal government to pay for the expenditures beyond what the government takes in from tax revenues. The problem for the American people, though, is that every time the federal government or the private sector borrows more from the federal reserve, the value of the “money” in the existing money supply (including what is in your pocket or your paycheck) is reduced.
You may think that this process does not affect you but it does. Compare what you paid for a postage stamp when you were a kid to what your children have to pay now. Compare what you paid for a candy bar when you were a kid to what your children have to pay now. Compare what you were paid at your first teenage job to what your teenage children are paid now. Compare what you paid for your first new car to what your children have to pay now. Compare what you paid for college tuition to what your children have to pay now. Compare what you paid for your first house to what your children have to pay now. You get the idea.
G. Edward Griffin masterfully describes not only how this process works but how devastating the process is to the economic well-being of the American people.
Mr. Griffin’s presentation is here:
I would also encourage you to visit Mr. Griffin’s website and check out his remarkable book:
Mr. Bill Still has also produced a great deal of information about monetary systems in general and the Federal Reserve in particular:

and here (“printing money” remark at 2:10 minute mark):
The more you familiar you become with the mechanisms of the Federal Reserve “money printing” system, the more you will understand how deceitful and harmful the federal income tax system is and why so many lies and secrecy surround the federal reserve system and the federal income tax system, from inception right through to today.
Earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to attend the Republican National Convention while in Cleveland, Ohio from July 18th through July 22nd. I recorded a couple of interviews at the nearby “Public Square” park where the majority of the protests were taking place that I believe you will find interesting and hopefully want to share with others.
The first interview is with Kenneth Lane from Amityville, New York. Kenneth describes his experiences as an African American Donald Trump Supporter.
The second interview is with Alex and Luisa from Brooklyn, New York. Alex and Luisa describe their experiences as immigrants to America and why they have not fallen for the allegation that Donald Trump is somehow a racist and/or anti-immigrant.
I hope you enjoy these videos. I hope to have additional videos published to the internet soon.
On February 6th, 2016 and February 20th, 2016, the Agent For Truth Radio show presented a "Phase I" and "Phase II" brief history lesson on the tax withholding system in the United States. Modern Federal Farmer Shawn O’Connor did a superb job squeezing a great deal of information into those two shows that together last less than two hours. Given the short time span we had to work with, we wanted to provide some web links that you can use to view some of these historical documents yourself.
Please click on the following links to view the documents discussed on or relevant to the subject matter of this show:

Shawn discussed on both shows his offer to provide even more details than what is provided above for those who send him a blank "flash" drive and a postage prepaid envelope. Given the time Shawn would have to spend to copy and mail these files, a small donation would be appropriate and appreciated but is not necessary to receive the information (but adequate funds for postage is of course an absolute necessity). His address is 1175 Shaw Avenue #104, PMB 393, Clovis, California 93612-3932.
The IRS has for many years focused on those less likely to be able to defend themselves, purposely targeting poor or struggling people as well as feasting on middle class people. And who can forget IRS law-breaking in order to derail the speech and association activities of "conservative" groups? The IRS is now reported to be also moving to the "greener pastures" of auditing wealthier people. After all the ways the executive, legislative and judicial branches have sold us down the river with international treaties, Obamacare and the ever-present fiat money scheme of the Federal Reserve, it's a wonder there are Americans left who can even be considered wealthy. But rest assured, for those Americans who have somehow overcome all the obstacles corrupt politicians have placed in their path and still managed to make for themselves a comfortable existence, the IRS stands ready to take a big bite out of the fruits of your labor and thrift.
Americans are rightfully fearful or angry or both. Sadly, the IRS, Department of Justice, the media and many lapdog tax professionals are doing everything they can to prevent people like me from informing people like you about an aspect of the federal income tax that would likely make the American people lose their fear and do away with the IRS - that aspect being that most Americans are not required to file income tax returns and pay income tax because no federal law has ever been passed that has made them liable for the income tax nor have they earned any "income" as defined by the U.S. Supreme Court.
So, not only does the IRS abuse the American public, but it abuses the American public without the authority to do so - unless and to the extent the IRS is able, with the help of other government agencies, the media and lapdog tax professionals to cultivate a perceived authority and instill a paralyzing fear in the public.
My efforts are not meant to push anyone into a one-on-one battle with the IRS - the IRS is still the 800 pound gorilla each of us has to wrestle with, whether the agency's actions are lawful or unlawful, authorized or unauthorized. My efforts are focused on opening your eyes to the truth that the IRS has illegally, deceitfully and knowingly stolen trillions of dollars from generations of American's in connection with an income tax that the majority of them never owed.
I encourage you to educate yourself and learn more about how this massive fraud was perpetrated against us. One avenue for educating yourself is here and here.
Dr. Katherine Albrecht is sounding the alarm bell about the "Windows 10" operating system. Please read this Fox News article and this Guardian article for more details regarding how big "Big Brother" is becoming so that you can make informed decisions regarding your privacy. Be aware that the federal government and large corporations and the "mainstream" media are just as callous about you keeping your hard earned money as they are about invading your privacy. The federal government, helped by large corporations and corporate media, have worked together for at least 70 years to lie to the American people about their true obligations under the federal income tax laws. Good Americans are being stripped of their property and sometimes even put in prison for not paying income tax even though the IRS could point to no law requiring the filing of an income tax return nor an underlying liability for the tax in the law nor evidence that the person even had taxable income in the first place. Read more about the fraudulent manner in which the federal income tax system is administered and enforced and what you can do about it here.
Friday July 10th in Austin, Texas I joined Attorney Robert Bernhoft of the Bernhoft Law Firm on the Infowars Nightly News hosted by Lee Ann McAdoo where we focused on the use of newly discovered “Secret Police” styled tactics used by federal agents against the law-abiding American public as well as one particular American who is fighting back with a lawsuit to put a stop to such illegal and unconstitutional conduct.
Read and download the actual section of the IRS Internal Revenue Manual (the official IRS internal policy manual that instructs IRS agents how to do their jobs) that describes how IRS agents are to utilize the "parallel construction" tactic.
You will be truly shocked at this new low in government disdain for your privacy and your rights, especially your right to due process of law and the right to confront your accuser, not to mention the enormous damage done to the bedrock principle of telling the truth under oath.

In-depth Articles Describing These Outrageous Investigative Practices:
I urge you to tell your family, friends and co-workers, especially any lawyers and law enforcement officers you know, about this important interview regarding these outrageous enforcement tactics. Of course, making sure congressional office phones ring off the hook and informing other media outlets are also extremely important tasks as well. The only way we can stop these outrageous tactics is by having enough Americans learn that the outrages are even going on so that they can later more forcefully express their outrage.
SPREAD THIS INFORMATION FAR AND WIDE!
