Regarding a new film
UnFair: Exposing The IRS that is scheduled for an October 14th debut across the nation

Dear Friends,

I recently became aware of a film called " UnFair: Exposing The IRS " that is scheduled for an October 14th debut across the nation. I have only viewed the film's trailer but I am more than a little skeptical that although the film may depict IRS abuses accurately it likely will not depict the simple and plain fact that most Americans are not liable for the income tax. In other words, even though the title indicates a purpose of "exposing the IRS", it is unlikely the film will explain the true foundations of the income tax nightmare, namely that many if not most Americans are not even liable to pay the federal income tax nor do most Americans earn "income" as the U.S. Supreme Court has defined that term.

Undoubtedly, the abusive and heinous IRS conduct that " UnFair: Exposing The IRS " will depict will stir feelings of disgust and fury in those who view it. However, I believe that the disgust and fury will be multiplied one hundred-fold if the audience understands how the IRS, with the help of a Congress and judiciary who have "looked the other way" when it comes to exposing the truth, is not only abusing citizens' rights and stealing their property but the IRS is down-right lying about the scope and nature of the federal income tax as well. In other words, if the average American who views this film is furious about the IRS abuses depicted in it, how much more fury will arise if the viewer learns that the Congress has NEVER passed a law making the average American liable to pay the federal income tax and that the IRS admits one must be liable for a tax before any requirement to pay the tax or file a return reporting the tax arises?

Drawing a simple analogy to illustrate how a greater impact might be achieved, consider that one level of fury would result upon learning that your local grocery store had been overcharging you for real milk you bought over a period of time but a significantly greater level of fury would arise upon learning that what you thought was milk was actually water with white food coloring and other additives that made it look and taste like milk but was not actually milk at all. Being the victim of an overcharging scheme might cause you to stop shopping at that store but being the victim of an outright lie might cause you to call every neighbor you know and show up at the store with picket signs in order to alert every customer who drive into the parking lot.

Proposal 1: Let's use this film debut as an opportunity to interact with people who already realize there is a big problem with the IRS (why else would they go to see the film?). I have placed on the internet templates for a small "info card that would fit on the front and back of a "business card" as well as a flyer that would fit on a full piece of paper or perhaps two or four per sheet of paper. Or you can create your own flyer or other method of communicating these facts.

Proposal 2: Let's spread the word about another documentary film on IRS abuse where the underlying reasons for IRS abuse, including the lies told to the American people about the scope and nature of the income tax, are more fully explored. Produced and narrated by my good friend Gary Franchi and his Next News Network , the film is called "Cross Hairs: The Internal Revenue Scandal".

Proposal 3: Spread the word to your friends and family about the debut of UnFair: Exposing The IRS on October 14th and the opportunity to open the eyes of our fellow Americans just a little wider.

I intend to go to a screening in Reno, Nevada or Sacramento, California or San Jose, California, depending on where I think I can make the most impact. For those who are frustrated with the failure or refusal of the government and the media to enlighten the public about the foundational reasons for IRS abuse, this is your opportunity to not only make a difference but interact with people who will likely be the most receptive to the real truth. As always, I urge you to be courteous and professional in spreading this message. Look for opportunities to enlighten others but don't demand opportunities. Be a good example to others.

. -I will continue to send a free Attorney Larry Becraft Research CD to any donor who donates at least $20 to me for my radio show effort - just make sure you mention that you want the CD gift. Don't forget that Attorney Becraft (and some unsung heroes) created an incredible researching tool all in one CD-ROM. He has compiled the most comprehensive, easy to access history of the federal income tax laws I have ever laid my eyes on. The CD-ROM includes more recent information such as a report from a 1975 investigation of the IRS, Title 26 of the Code of Federal Regulations from 1999, the entire Internal Revenue Code from January, 2002, Statutes At Large 111 through 121 (105th Congress through 110th Congress - roughly 1997 through 2007) and earlier information such as the Revenue Acts of 1919, 1921, 1924, 1926, 1928, 1932, 1934, 1936, 1938, tax regulations from some of the aforementioned years, a mind-blowing 31 page "secret" memorandum written in 1945 later declassified regarding the history of the "Bureau of Internal Revenue" (which is the earlier name of the agency we know today as the "IRS"), the entire 1939 Internal Revenue Code, the entire 1954 Internal Revenue Code (prepared by the Joint Committee on Taxation in 1992). Many of these documents were created in word-searchable format so you can search for any specific word you can think of. It would take hundreds of hours to create such a resource from scratch and Larry's hard work has saved us from doing so. As Larry told my listeners the last time he was on the show, it is critical for Americans to learn more about what the tax laws actually say - what the tax laws said in 1913 when the contemporary income tax came into being and what the tax laws have said ever since then, all the way up to the present day. Donations by check or money order are gratefully accepted and can be made payable to "Joseph Banister" and mailed to me at 1805 N. Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada 89701. Keep in mind that money orders (with an anonymous payor) or cash may provide a greater degree of privacy to the donor than checks. Also, consider using 1805 N. Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada 89701 as the return address on your envelope rather than your own address because any information on the outside of a mailed envelope is susceptible to observation/transcription by government agencies. See http://www.answers.com/topic/mail-cover for more information. Use your own discretion based on the degree of privacy you desire. Attorney Becraft appeared on the Freedom Above Fortune Radio Show on September 18, 2010 and spent the entire two hour program discussing and explaining the contents of the CD - an archive of this show is saved at http://hearliberty.com/joebanister.html on the left hand side of the page under the "Saturday, September 18, 2010" heading.

. -Prayers in support of this effort are always welcomed and encouraged. May we all focus on giving glory to God and obeying His Commandments, especially the Commandment not to take His Name in vain. One "pet project" I have is to encourage film and television producers, directors, writers, actors and actresses to refrain from using God's or Jesus' Name in vain in their films and shows. I will use my "@joebanister" twitter account and the hashtag #LordsNameInVainWatch to ask for your help in making public requests to film and television personalities to stop using the Lord's Name in vain while pursuing their profession. Let's work together and speak up in defense of God's Holy Name and let us shower God with our devotion so that He will more abundantly shower our nation with blessings.

-Contributions to my legal defense fund are also welcomed due to the significant costs of defending against multiple and continuing government attacks. I also spend a significant amount of my personal time fighting this battle and speaking out. Your contributions help me keep the fight alive. Checks or money orders are gratefully accepted and can be made payable to "Joseph Banister" to assist me with legal expenses and can be mailed to 1805 N. Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada 89701. Money orders or cash may provide a greater degree of privacy to the donor than checks so use your own discretion based on the degree of privacy you desire.

-Visit http://www.ninehundred.net/banister for more information as to how you can obtain information about my recent trial and contribute to my legal defense fund at the same time as well as a biography with exhibits (scroll down the page).

-My sincere thanks to those who have prayed for the success of our efforts and/or contributed to my legal defense fund. Your continued support is enabling me to illustrate, in detail and in a very public manner, that the IRS does not prevail against citizens because the agency adheres to the rule of law, but that the IRS prevails against citizens because the agency ignores the law, twists the meaning of the law, and overwhelms the citizen with economic and legal burdens. In a school yard, such tactics are called "Bullying". In a government setting, such tactics are called "Tyranny". This effort is the equivalent of ganging up on the bully and sending him to reform school where he belongs.
