Text of the Press Release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 20, 2001
DOJ and the U.S. Congress Officially Commit to Send IRS Tax and Legal Experts to Appear on Capitol Hill. Public Hearing to be Conducted by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and Rep. Henry Hyde to Answer Citizens’ Challenges of IRS Jurisdiction and Illegal Enforcement of U.S. Tax Law.
Washington D.C. – We The People Foundation For Constitutional Education, Inc. announce that the Department of Justice and the U.S. Congress have committed, in writing, to appear with IRS representatives in a recorded, public meeting to officially answer to charges challenging the legal jurisdiction of the IRS and the illegal enforcement of U.S. income tax laws against U.S. citizens.
Department of Justice U.S. Assistant Attorney General Dan Bryant and Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett (MD) signed the written agreement Friday that commits the government to send their top tax and legal experts to a two-day September hearing to be conducted on Capitol Hill. These actions are in response to a proper petition for redress of grievances brought by Robert Schulz, Chairman of the Foundation. Schulz ended his 3-week hunger fast mid-afternoon today after having secured official commitment from representatives of the U.S. Government that his formal petition will be answered.
Schulz has been in Washington since July 4th on a hunger fast until death, if needed, to force the government to respond to his legal Remonstrance, a petition for redress of grievances. These grievances include challenges of IRS jurisdiction, routine and gross violations of due process by the IRS, the refusal of the IRS to cite the specific law that requires employers or employees to withhold taxes and the fraudulent ratification of the 16th (income tax) Amendment.
DOJ’s Bryant is quoted, “The American people are entitled to answers. It is in our nation’s interest that we participate and answer these questions.”

While largely ignored by the media and other government officials, Rep. Bartlett has stood alone on the Hill (until recently) in public defense of Schulz’s absolute Constitutional Right to petition for redress and be answered by the government. On Tuesday, Bartlett initiated a formal Congressional Inquiry to the IRS demanding official government responses for Schulz.
Today, DOJ’s Dan Bryant agreed to Rep. Bartlett’s requirements that the “congressional briefing-like hearings” be conducted in public and be recorded and broadcast live. The meetings will have appropriate procedural controls and security. It is expected Rep. Henry Hyde (IL), Former Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will gavel the sessions.
Schulz was “elated that government officials have finally responded as they are required by both the 1st Amendment to the Constitution and their oaths of office.”
The agreement, penned on Congressional letterhead, was signed at the Department of Justice headquarters. Bryant assured both Rep. Bartlett and Schulz there is “virtually no chance of being overridden on this matter.” Bartlett promised Schulz, “I assure you. The IRS will be there at those meetings.”
Schulz continued, “I have met with these gentlemen face-to-face and have looked in their eyes. I am satisfied they are men of honor. We have cemented our agreement with a handshake. The fast ends today.
After decades of obfuscation, avoidance, creative restructuring and ‘simplification’ of the 9500-page tax code, the truth is about to be revealed. The Sovereign Citizens have exercised their Right to petition.
It is no coincidence that President Bush revealed in this week’s New York Times that the government has begun to publicly discuss alternative tax systems, including disposal of the entire tax code. The internet and talk radio have facilitated detailed research, documentation and discussion of these charges across the nation.
If our income tax system is publicly confirmed to be without force of law upon the People, and is truly as ’voluntary’ as the IRS so often advertises, it is highly likely that the government may move quickly to implement a replacement tax such as a national sales tax. The People must remain vigilant that one illegal tax is not replaced by another.
The taxing powers granted to the federal government by our Constitution are explicit, limited and must be complied with. Since 1787, the mechanism for an orderly and peaceful transition to a legal tax system has resided in Article 1 Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution. This is a states' Rights issue.
The day that our government has shunned, has arrived. The Sovereign Citizens have formally demanded and exercised their Rights. We The People have been heard.” --30--

I read portions of this article on www.worldnetdaily.com It certainly sounds encouraging, but I'm sure it will all be swept under the rug in time. The power mongers in control of this nation are not about to give up their power base: the power to tax the citizenry into oblivion. God is sovereign and we ought to be more focused on securing people's freedom from sin than their freedom from taxation. I have to admit though, that it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all to have the IRS and federal reserve banking system completely abolished and the federal governemnt scaled back about 90%

Aw, Skip. I was hoping no one would pop my bubble right away. You're most likely right about it being swept under the rug. Most people don't care enough to take any kind of action to make sure it doesn't get swept under.
Of course the most important thing is God. He is Sovereign, and this nation was founded under His laws and the citizenry is supposed to be sovereign here. Lex est Rex is upposed to be the modus operandi. but we have become lazy and allow people to be above the law and have allowed the disintegration of our rights under God to wither away and therefore our ability to stand as a Christian nation has been disentegrated as well. Simply put, you can do more for the everlasting Kingdom when you are not fighting the infernal kingdom just to keep your head above the water.
