From the April 2001 Idaho Observer:
IRS researcher discovers treasonous treaties
by Don Harkins
COLVILLE, Wash. -- Retired Seattle fireman and freedom fighter Jim Shaver, who discovered how the IRS implicates the local clerks and the county sheriffs all over the nation in securities fraud by tricking them into creating bogus liens against the property of county residents (The Idaho Observer, June, 1999), has made another startling discovery: The U.S. has signed "tax treaties" with many foreign nations, some of which are previous or potential enemies of the U.S.
Department of the Treasury/Internal Revenue Service Publication 901, "U.S. Tax Treaties" (Catalogue No. 46489F, revised May, 1998) is a 44-page document that explains, lists and describes the treaties that the federal government has made with foreign nations in an effort to insure that the IRS and the foreign governments get their fair share of tax revenues generated by foreign nationals.
According to Treasury Department /IRS Publication 1 (Catalogue No. 64731W, revised 10/90), under the heading "Privacy and Confidentiality," the IRS stated in the third paragraph that it can share tax information with state agencies and ".can also share it with certain foreign government under tax treaty provisions."
Though the IRS still publishes the tax treaty guide, the most recent version of Publication 1 omits any mention of the international tax treaties. It does, however, admit that, "The IRS will not disclose to anyone the information you give us except as authorized by law."
The U.S. currently has tax treaties with 50 nations, including China and Russia, both of which are considered military adversaries of the U.S. by knowledgable Americans who are truly concerned about national security. Shaver has copies of official documents obtained from the National Archives which prove that an income tax treaty was signed between the U.S. and the Soviet Union June 20, 1973 -- during the height of the Cold War.
"There are provisions in law that make it an act of treason to enter into contacts with our enemies. The betrayal gets even deeper when you understand that the federal government has signed these tax treaties with previously and potentially hostile foreign nations on behalf of a private corporation," said Shaver.
According to the UNITED STATES' Answer and Claim to a civil action filed by Diversified Metal Products against T-Bow Company Trust, Internal Revenue Service and Steve Morgan (CV 93-405-E-EJL, 1992?), through U.S. Attorney Betty H. Richardson and U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division Attorney Richard R. Ward, "The United States of America denies that the Internal Revenue Service is an agency of the United States Government."
"Can you imagine what a severe compromise of national security it would be to allow the enemy to have access to all of the information that is contained on income tax forms?" Shaver asked.
One must also wonder by what authority the U.S. is empowered to force a private corporation that behaves like a public agency to make the American peoples' confidential financial records available to foreign governments.
According to Title 18, Section 2381 of the U.S. Code (Crimes), "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death."
Aside from the penalty of death required for those found guilty of treason, Section 872 of Title 18 describes how those pretending to be agents of the government must be punished: "Whoever, being an officer, or employee of the United States, or any department or agency thereof, or representing himself to be or assuming to act as such, under color or pretense of office or employment commits or attempts an act of extortion, shall be fined not more than $5,000, or imprisoned not more than three years or both."
Though it appears that questioning federal authority in court with legitimate legal arguments is an efficient way to get into prison, one must at least ask himself: "How can the government force me to commit treason by providing it with documents that could potentially be used to give aid and comfort to the enemy?
