                      The Kick-Back Racket:
                   Performance Management and
                       Recognition System

     It is becoming increasing apparent, in large part because of
a conspiracy  of silence which has descended upon the District of
Columbia in  recent months,  that President  Clinton has a lot of
explaining to  do, in  quite a few executive departments.  One of
the best  suppressed stories  of his  administration thus  far is
evidence of  White House  kick-backs from  the  Internal  Revenue
Service ("IRS")  for each  and every indictment issued by federal
grand juries against "illegal tax protestors," whatever they are.

     The term  itself is  an oxymoron,  because protest has never
been illegal  in America.   Protest  is even  recognized  by  the
federal  government's   precious  Uniform   Commercial  Code  for
repudiating presentments  in a lawful manner.  So, for the phrase
"illegal tax  protestor" to  withstand the obvious constitutional
challenge (yes,  the First  Amendment is still the supreme Law in
America), the  adjective "illegal"  must modify  the noun  "tax."
This is  a telling  admission on the part of our vaulted Congress
of what  many Americans  have known  for a long time, namely, the
federal income  tax is  a total  and utter  fraud, from  stem  to
stern.   Our Ship  of State is a sieve at sea that's riddled with
loop-holes and sinking fast.

     What makes this term even more obnoxious is the way in which
the IRS now attacks American "rebels" who dare to learn and speak
the truth.   A  key page from the Internal Revenue Manual ("IRM")
clearly shows  that the President routinely receives $35,000 from
the Performance  Management and  Recognition System ("PMRS").  We
have a  political prisoner  in federal  custody right  now who is
prepared to testify that the President receives this sum each and
every time  a federal grand jury issues an indictment against any
illegal tax  protestor ("ITP").   U.S.  Attorneys receive  a mere
$25,000 per indictment of ITP's.

     Now, if  the Department of Justice ("DOJ") has a secret task
force in  place to attack ITP's who've become organized, like the
former Pilot  Connection Society  which has been reported to have
over 5,000 members, the President stands to rake in a tidy sum if
his hench-persons  in the  DOJ succeed  in  bringing  grand  jury
indictments against  all 5,000.   Let's  see, 5,000 times $35,000
equals $175,000,000.   The bad news for President Clinton is that
the IRM  provides absolutely  no authority for these "performance
recognition  rewards"   (read   "kick-backs").      Courts   have
consistently ruled  that the  IRM has  no more  authority than  a
pizza recipe,  when it  comes to  authorizing salaries  and other
compensation for  federal government employees.  Federal employee
salaries must be determined by Acts of Congress, and the IRM is a
far cry from that high standard of law.

     Furthermore, the  Constitution forbids  the  President  from
receiving any  other "emoluments" during his term of office.  See
Article II, Section 1, Clause 7: "... he shall not receive within
that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of
them."   A  FOIA request by  this author  for  all  PMRS  records
produced an  admission, on  Treasury Department  letterhead, that
some records  do not exist because the rewards were paid in cash.
This is  bad enough.   But, when you couple these kick-backs with
the perjury  racket now rampant within the Department of Just US,
and with  a grand  jury system  which badly needs either complete
overhaul or  abolition, you  quickly find  that  the  indictments
issuing from  federal grand juries, for alleged violations of the
Internal Revenue  Code, are  really threats,  engineered  by  the
biggest extortion  racket  this  planet  has  ever  seen.    Jury
tampering, perjury, and obstruction of justice are terms which do
a far better job of describing what is really going on.

     In one  recent grand  jury case,  involving a  subpoena  for
certain books  and records,  a federal judge in Arizona conspired
with the  Assistant U.S. Attorney ("AUSA") to commit 27 counts of
mail fraud, 27 counts of jury tampering, 27 counts of obstruction
of justice,  and 27  counts of  conspiracy to  commit all  of the
above.  When a formal request was submitted to that grand jury to
investigate probable  violations of  federal law by the AUSA, the
judge intercepted  this certified  request,  and  all  subsequent
pleadings which  were then  directed to the grand jury by Counsel
in order  to keep  them informed  of what  was really  going  on.
These pleadings  contained crucial  evidence -- you guessed it --
of the  PMRS kick-back  racket, and  of a pattern of pathological
lying by the AUSA dating back to a $4,797 fine imposed on him for
repeatedly lying  to a  federal  court  in  Phoenix.    This  was
unprecedented for federal courts who almost never eat their own.

     Last but  not least,  the evidence  is now overwhelming that
the law which Congress enacted to qualify and convene all juries,
both grand  and  trial,  is  horribly  defective  for  exhibiting
obvious class  bias against  state  Citizens  who  are  not  also
federal citizens.    The  courts  have  consistently  ruled  that
Americans can  be  state  Citizens  without  also  being  federal
citizens,  whether  or  not  the  federal  government's  precious
Fourteenth Amendment  was properly  approved and  adopted (and we
now know  that it  was not).   Unfortunately  for Congress,  this
class discrimination in the Jury Selection and Service Act, Title
28 United  States Code  Sections 1861 thru 1865, invalidates each
and every  federal grand  jury indictment,  and  each  and  every
federal trial jury verdict, ever since the end of the Civil War.

     The United States is now in very deep trouble for putting so
many Americans  in federal  prisons, with  absolutely  no  lawful
authority whatsoever  to do  so.   Couple that with the fact that
the U.S.  incarceration rate  is twice  as high as it is in South
Africa, which is second world-wide in prisoners per capita.

     Do you  think maybe  that  the  federal  government  may  be
running an extortion racket here, just for money?  I think so.  I
know so.  I can prove it.  I am appalled.
