Note: These comments were presented at the Close of the Citizens' Truth-In-Taxation Hearing.
Washington D.C., February 27-28, 2002
Ladies and Gentlemen:
My name is Sherry Peel Jackson. I became a Certified Public Accountant in 1987, I was an Internal Revenue Agent in
the Atlanta District for 7
years, and I became a Certified
Fraud Examiner in
2001. I am here to summarize the tales of ignorance and deception
that you have heard over the last two days and I am here to inform you of the state of the nation so
that you may choose your next course of action.
You have heard the truth of how the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Justice, Federal Reserve and politicians have perpetuated this
smoke and mirrors - dog and pony show on you the American people
for over 88 years. You have
heard of American families devastated by the invasion of
privacy and unbridled fear placed
upon them through threats of liens, levy's and even jail time. In my
tenure as an IRS agent, I personally
saw marriages broken, families torn
apart, homes confiscated and
businesses destroyed - all while my colleagues and I were out making
unjust demands on the American people - without the proper
authority. Now, you be the judge. You have seen that Commissioner Charles Rosatti, Dan Bryant, the majority of our congressional delegation
and other civil servants have refused to do their jobs.
It would have been as simple as answering the questions of these well-educated
researchers in a public forum, such as this one. But they have reneged, so you be the judge. You
have learned that the Constitution of the
United States of America has been trampled on and ignored through allowing the privately owned Federal Reserve
to create paper currency
and charge you 47 million dollars in
interest per hour - money
coming from the mouths of your children and the college education funds of your
grandchildren, all the while the children and grandchildren of the owners of
the Federal Reserve will never
have to work a day in their lives, and that is wrong, on so many
different levels. And let me tell you, that as a black woman I am keenly aware of the history of slavery. But
do you understand that we are all slaves to this system?
Do you understand that the media
play a part keeping the American people so fixated on Alley McBeal,
WWF Smack down, Moeisha and the Practice that we don't take time to read
the Creature from Jekyll Island, study the Internal Revenue Code and learn the Constitution? Now, let me spend just a minute to address
my culture. Do you realize that the so called black leaders make millions of dollars every year
playing the "us against them"
role - keeping blacks focused
on the race card and away from the real issue - the theft of our
future through taxation.
These publicity mongers are well aware of the oppression
brought on by income
taxation, they love to march on Washington about racial profiling and civil rights, not to say
that these are not real problems, but these leaders have been too afraid to approach the powers that be and have a million
man, woman, boy, girl march about economic freedom from
income taxation and restoration of constitutional rights.(And they have
the nerve to call Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom.)
Also, there's been a lot of talk about reparations lately, but know this: If all
Americans were able to keep
the money withheld from their paychecks every year, that money would
enable them to home school,
start their own business
and boost the economy,
save for college
even buy that 40 acres and
a mule. So, you be the judge. You need to understand that with an Internal Revenue Code, Code of Federal Regulations,
and other "official documents" spouting off several different definitions of United States,
Internal Revenue Service and other important
terms, this deception that keeps people
ignorant is not a coincidence. The writers of the Code used semantics and
legalese to make us think that we are required to pay the income tax
and file an income tax return. Former IRS commissioner Shirley Peterson even stated that, and I quote,
"Eight decades of
amendments to (the) code
have produced a virtually impenetrable maze. The rules are unintelligible to most citizens?
The rules are equally mysterious
to many government employees who are charged with administering and enforcing the law." End quote.
This fraud was strung together by people like
the former president
that said "it depends on what your definition of is is"
and "it depends on what your definition of sex is". This incident showed us that definitions are very important to politicians and lawyers, and no word is
meaningless. For example, it does depend on what the definition of "source" is. The opposition, in an attempt to keep the sheeple in the flock,
will scoff at us and encourage unaware Americans to ridicule those of us who have been informed, saying, "these people just don't want to pay their fair
share." We have already learned from a speech by former Federal Reserve Chairman Beardsley Rhuml that this country doesn't need income taxes for revenue.
This money collected from our sweat and tears is used to perpetuate redistribution of wealth, among other things. But
the powers that be keep beating the people over the head with this "fair
share' garbage. Well, what is fair share?
Haven't the families of the victims in New York
City and the pentagon paid their fair share? Haven't
the men and women that lost sons and daughters, husbands in wives in Vietnam,
Korea and the
other battles paid their fair
share? So you see, this tactic to pit those that are uninformed of the income tax fraud
against those who have seen the light is baseless and must be eliminated! The
opposition also uses our religious faith to twist the meaning of authority
and to create unjust statutes. People, I know godly authority and our
current system does not reflect godly
authority. Many of our past and present religious leaders have been jailed for
questioning authority. They have been beaten, starved and even killed for their faith
and their defiance of injustice. People of America
- is what you're living for worth dying for? Are you willing to take a stand? It's your choice. The
creators of this Creature called the income tax,
engineered their system to manipulate you into staying in your comfort zones.
With a little bit of patriotism and a little bit of fear tactic mixed into a pot of inflation and deflation, they have been able to keep the people confused,
intimidated and obedient
for over 88 years.
But now the truth
about the fraudulent origin and
operations of the Federal Reserve System
and the Internal Revenue Service have
been revealed to the American people.
You can no longer
claim ignorance of the truth.
You must acknowledge
it or reject it.
The choice is yours. And the consequences of your decision will rest on the
shoulders of your children and future generations of Americans. You can remain
an informed slave or you can get off of the plantation. You can remain engrossed in fear, or you can take a stand like Patrick Henry
who shouted "give me
liberty or give me death." You can stay hypnotized
by "As The World Turns" and "The
Guiding Light", or you can turn off the bube
tube and read the Constitution, then go ask your elected representatives why they refuse to follow it.
Remember that those elected representatives have sworn to uphold and defend our
constitution. Remember that each of our elected representatives has pledged to
serve our country first-not a political party, or certain privileged and
special interests groups-but you, the American People. They are our public
servants. In closing, we have shown you the truth. Now, for the sake of our Country and our children, we ask you to choose justice over
injustice, unity over division, courage over fear, truth over ignorance, and
liberty over economic slavery. We ask you to stand
with us and let the voice of freedom be
heard from every corner of our great country. It is time to end this long-standing injustice and tyranny
over the American People.
Thank you. Sherry Peel Jackson,
