Foreclosure Fraud: Cashing a check from Regional Trustee Services as Butler Bosch Fraudulent Merger Continues.

Note: The merger linked below is probably fraudulent. The new company formed in the Hunter, Bosch buyout strips the liabilities -- i.e. from pending lawsuits -- away from the assets and they leave the liabilities with the old company. Query, how will they pay the liabilities then? Does the Secretary of State care?

US TAX DOLLARS CONTINUE TO PAY FOR CARNAGE IN GAZA

he Pentagon confirmed the Israeli military had requested additional ammunition to restock its dwindling supplies on July 20, with the US Defense Department approving the sale just three days later.

SALE ????

Did anyone see a receipt??

This might explain why you didn’t … the weapons were already in Israel.

Two of the requested munitions came from a little-known stockpile of ammunition stored by the US military on the ground in Israel for emergency use. The War Reserve Stockpile Ammunition-Israel is estimated to be worth $1 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The word "sale" is a joke. Where do you think Israel gets the money to buy US weapons? From the US TAXPAYERS!

House report advises eliminating IRS commissioner job, ACA management

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday proposed a total revamping of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), accusing the agency of being a political group rather than a nonpartisan government collection agency, according to the House pf Representatives Oversight Committee's latest report titled, "Making Sure Targeting Never Happens: Getting Politics Out of the IRS and Other Solutions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suggest that before making any changes to the IRS that you check those bills of ratification of the 16th Amendment that supposedly authorized a personal income tax (which was prohibited in the original Constitution), because Judge James C. Fox states quite clearly in Sullivan vs United States that the Amendment actually failed ratification, and the United States Supreme Court ruled in Stanton vs Baltic Mining that the 16th Amendment (even if ratified) did not actually confer any new tax powers on Congress, making the IRS and the income tax a 100 year criminal fraud perpetrated by the US Government and the FED against the American people.

Patent workers paid to exercise, shop and do chores, investigation reveals

Dozens of employees working for an obscure federal agency went years with little work to do, allowing them to collect salaries and bonuses while they shopped online, caught up on chores, watched television or walked the dog, an investigation revealed Tuesday.

The probe by the Commerce Department’s inspector general found that paralegals at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s appeals board were paid more than $5 million for their time even though there was so little work for them to do that supervisors didn’t care how they used it.

Jewish Groups Get 94% of Homeland Security Grants

The Department of Homeland Security allocated to Jewish institutions $12 million, or 94 percent, of $13 million in funds for securing nonprofits.

The Jewish Federations of North America’s Washington office director, William Daroff, said Tuesday that the allocation made sense particularly in light of an intensification of threats on Jewish community targets in the United States and overseas.

“In the current environment there are threats to nonprofits and to Jewish institutions,” he told JTA, noting a swell of attacks on Jewish institutions in Europe in the wake of the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip.

“We see it clearly in Europe, but we also see it here in the United States in Kansas City, in Seattle and numerous occasions that are not made public or do not come to fruition,” Daroff said. He referred to attacks in recent years on Jewish community centers in Kansas City and Seattle.

Spain Wants to Tax the Hyperlink

The hyperlink is a crazy thing if you think about it. One of HTML's most basic building blocks has completely changed the news industry, turning black text into blue (or in Motherboard's case, purple), and taking a practice that was one completely verboten in journalism—snagging a competitor's work—and making it commonplace. But soon, if you want to use them in Spain, it's gonna cost you.

The law, called canon AEDE, would put a tax on aggregation, and would make it illegal for blogs, news sites, and perhaps even Google News to link out to original sources without paying a fee. Make no mistake, this would fundamentally change how the media industry's link economy currently works (at least in Spain—we'll see if others follow suit).

The idea is so big that one Spanish blog called it the "most infamous law in the history of the internet."

Joe Bannister's Lawyer Warns Non-Filers: "You risk going to jail, be prepared to lose everything you have"

Video conversations with well-known tax honesty dissident Joe Bannister and his attorney Jeff Dickstein from 2008.

Q. If the average American were to watch Freedom to Fascism and they decide they don't want to file their income tax, what would you say to that? What would you recommend such a person do?

Dickstein: "I would say that you have to realize that the positions presented in the film are not accepted by the United States government; that if you don't file you risk going to jail, and you might even expect that, and also the amount of tax that you might otherwise end up owing will probably be quadrupled if not more. If you're young, you have a family, before you take that position you ought to make sure you have plenty of money set aside so you can take care of your wife and kids, and be prepared to lose everything you have and be broke for a really long time. Also don't forget to save a substantial amount of money to pay for your attorneys fees."

Pentagon security clearance holders owe $730M in taxes

About 83,000 Defense Department employees and contractors with security clearances to protect the nation's secrets have delinquent federal tax debts totaling $730 million, according to an internal government audit.

The findings in the new Government Accountability Office study raise security concerns for the U.S. government. Officials say employees and contractors who have financial problems are top targets of foreign intelligence agents.

Federal regulations governing security clearances say that a person "who is financially overextended is at risk of having to engage in illegal acts to generate funds" and that indebtedness should be among factors considered when someone applies for a clearance, the GAO study said. But the study found that government agencies in charge of the issue can't readily collect data on tax debt, in part because IRS privacy rules prohibit sharing certain taxpayer data.

Former Vanguard Tax Lawyer Files Whistleblower Suit Alleging Mutual Fund Giant Became Low-Cost Leader by Evading $1 Billion in Taxes

A former employee of Vanguard Group Inc. has sued the mutual-fund company in New York, saying it has avoided paying federal and state taxes and sheltered hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

The civil suit, unsealed in the Supreme Court of New York on Friday, accuses the Malvern, Pa.-based firm of operating an illegal tax shelter for nearly 40 years, thus avoiding $1 billion of U.S. federal income tax and at least $20 million of New York tax over the last 10 years, according to a copy of the complaint. The suit was filed by David Danon, whose LinkedIn profile describes him as an associate counsel at the company from August 2008 to June 2013. Mr. Danon is requesting all costs of filing the lawsuit as well as 15% to 30% of any money recovered by the state and local governments, including all proceeds of any related action.

Flashback: Now taxman wants to trawl a YEAR of your bank statements under powers to raid bank accounts for unpaid tax

Intrusive new powers to spy on the last 12 months of everybody’s bank statements are being demanded by the taxman.

In a major escalation of its existing rights, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs wants to be able to access monthly copies of bank, Isa and even joint account statements.

This would mean sensitive personal details such as the size of families’ monthly mortgage payments, how much they spend in restaurants and the amount saved into a tax-free nest egg are open to scrutiny.

Last night, critics condemned the unprecedented power grab as ‘Big Brother’ tactics.

It is the latest twist in the furore over HMRC’s plans to take money directly from bank accounts to settle unpaid tax bills.

Tax agency says ‘preventing poverty’ not allowed as goal for charity

American choice: genocide or justice?

America today is the main sponsor of the Israeli regime and all its decades-old crimes against humanity.

Just days before Operation Protective Edge opened on July 8 under the cynical pretext of three Israeli teenagers being kidnapped and killed by unknown parties, US President Barack Obama announced an extra $430 million in aid to Washington’s most indulged foreign regime – in Tel Aviv. This is on top of the $3 billion that Israel receives every year for the past decades from the American government siphon of its taxpayers. Hard-pressed American households are getting their drinking water supplies cut off for unpaid utility bills in Detroit and other US cities, but the benevolence of Washington to Israel is like a wellspring that never runs dry.

IRS employee charged with identity theft

A former IRS employee in Central California was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of stealing the identities of her co-workers and opening credit card accounts to go on shopping sprees with friends, federal prosecutors said.

Viririana Hernandez, a 30-year-old Fresno County woman, and three of her friends stole $1.2 million from 160 people, many IRS employees, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said. In a 15-page indictment, prosecutors say the four bought home goods, jewelry and clothes. They created credit cards under others' names and bought gift cards to continue their crimes without detection, prosecutors said.

An attorney representing Hernandez could not immediately be reached.

A grand jury indicted the four Fresno County residents on 23 counts, charging them with conspiracy, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. The others named in court papers are Roberto Martinez, 33; Lilliana Gonzalez, 32; and Daniel Miranda, 25.

Obamacare hit by ruling, but subsidies to continue

President Barack Obama's health care law is enmeshed in another big legal battle after two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.

A divided court panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people pay their premiums, saying financial aid can be paid only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.

About 100 miles to the south in Richmond, Virginia, another appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing consumers in all 50 states to purchase subsidized coverage.

The White House immediately declared that policyholders will keep getting financial aid as the administration sorts out the legal implications.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

IRS seeks help destroying another 3,200 hard drives

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives.

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight.

Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft.

We’re operating in a topsy-turvy Sherwood Forest where instead of Robin Hood and his merry band of thieves stealing from the rich to feed the poor, you’ve got the government and its merry band of corporate thieves stealing from the poor to fatten the wallets of the rich. In this way, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. All the while, the American Dream of peace, prosperity, and liberty has turned into a nightmare of endless wars, debilitating debt, and outright tyranny.

Whistleblower: IRS in cahoots with NSA

NSA whistleblower William Binney was being interviewed on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s 970 AM The Answer when he disclosed the startling revelation.

“For example,” Binney said in response to a question on how the NSA can use data and metadata to identify potential threats, “if you started to communicate with people involved in the tea party … and [the NSA] saw you were talking to somebody who was involved in setting up 501(c)3s, then they could alert the IRS to target you if you came in with a request.”

New York proposes licence for Bitcoin trading

New York State has become one of the first jurisdictions in the world to propose explicit licenses for companies wanting to carry out business in bitcoin.

For some members of the bitcoin community, the proposals are what they've been waiting for, the first step in turning the currency from an unregulated wild-west into a mature, respectable area of commerce.

Littoral Combat Ship Will Be Modified, If Not Replaced

After authorizing construction of at least 20 littoral combat ships, the Navy may soon dramatically change course on its decade-long, multi-billion dollar experiment to build a relatively inexpensive surface combatant.

The LCS program has suffered severe criticism for being under-gunned and thin-skinned, outstripping cost estimates and experiencing performance issues on initial deployments. It has also enjoyed a dogged defense by both uniformed and civilian Navy officials.

But in April the Navy released two requests for information for technologies to improve LCS designs or replace them outright. The first asked for existing, mature design concepts for totally new ships. The second solicited systems and technologies at the component level that could be readily included in future ships.

Lost bodies, wasted money: Inside NYC’s Medical Examiner’s Office

The city Medical Examiner’s Office is a mess — plagued with errors, including bodies being lost, mistakenly cremated or wrongly donated to science — while millions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on plans and equipment useful only in a mass disaster.

The office has received $19.6 million in federal Homeland Security grants since 2005, The Post has learned.

But it refuses to detail how it has spent the funds and has failed to release any records, violating a Post request submitted under the Freedom of Information Law last August.

Documents from the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services provide a limited look at the spending, and it suggests most of the funds were wasted.

House will slash IRS budget over Lois Lerner targeting scandal

Monday night, the House approved three amendments to slash more than $1 billion in funding to the IRS, cheered by Republicans as retribution for the scandal in which the agency allegedly targeted conservative political groups.
The House is considering the Financial Services Appropriations bill for 2015, which includes funding for the beleaguered agency. Funding for the IRS actually increased for fiscal year 2014, to $11.3 billion from the sequestration-reduced $11.2 billion in 2013.

If Monday's three amendments are passed into law, this year's $10.95 billion appropriation would fall to $9.8 billion, with the savings going to deficit reduction.

"The IRS has been targeting American taxpayers based on their political beliefs for the past four or five years," said Rep. Bill Huizenga, whose amendment to chop a whopping $788 million from the IRS's budget was approved by voice vote.

U.S. Drug Firms Seek Inversion Deals to Evade Taxes

Updated, 7:42 p.m. | Health care companies, like many big American corporations, have a long list of complaints: regulation, global competition and, chief of all, taxes.

But increasingly, drug makers and medical device companies have found a way to self-medicate.

By buying a smaller overseas competitor and reincorporating abroad — a maneuver called inversion — health care companies are extricating themselves from the American tax regimen. Their new international domiciles also give companies easier access to overseas cash and make additional inversions more attractive.

Though nothing about the industry makes it more suitable for inversions than, say, food or technology, a number of factors have combined to make health care the focus of the inversion wave that is sweeping corporate America and annoying regulators in Washington.

A secret no more: CIA hit with Michigan tax liens

The state Treasury Department has filed three tax liens against the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency for failure to pay more than $20,000 in withholding tax on behalf of people it employs in Michigan.

The liens involve failure to pay 10 assessments between March 2011 and December 2013. The liens were recorded in increments of $2,735 in February 2012, $11,066 in June 2012 and $7,041 in March 2014.

An agency employee who declined to identify herself said she could not discuss the tax debt by phone on Friday and invited the State Journal to fill out a questionnaire on the CIA website or to write a letter to the agency’s Public Affairs Office. On Monday, CIA employee Molly Hale said in an email the State Journal’s query was forwarded to its media department.

IRS's 17% Error Rate in Processing Amended Tax Returns Caused $2.1 Billion of Erroneous Tax Refunds

The IRS received more than 4 million amended tax returns in Fiscal Year 2012. This audit was initiated because previous TIGTA audits have identified problems with IRS processes for verifying claims on amended tax returns. The objective of this review was to determine whether the IRS has controls in place to ensure that claims for refunds on amended tax returns are appropriate. ...

TIGTA’s review of a statistical sample of 259 amended tax returns claiming tax refunds of $500 or more in Fiscal Year 2012 identified 44 (17 percent) tax returns for which the IRS issued potentially erroneous tax refunds totaling $103,270. Based on the sample results, TIGTA estimates the IRS may have issued more than $439 million in potentially erroneous tax refunds claimed on 187,421 amended returns in Fiscal Year 2012. As such, the IRS could issue more than $2.1 billion in potentially erroneous tax refunds claimed on amended tax returns over the next five years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason there are so many errors by the IRS is that the tax code is very complicated, the result off too many loopholes passed for the very rich and because the whole system is intentionally obfuscated so that ordinary citizens cannot figure out that it is a scam.

America is undertaxed, and the result is underfunding of public investments that would improve our economy and the overall welfare of Americans. Fortunately, Congress has several straightforward policy options to raise revenue, mostly by closing or limiting loopholes and special subsidies imbedded in the tax code that benefit wealthy individuals and profitable businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS! America is taxed to the point of paralysis! This think tank is operating from the mindset that all problems are solved by taking more away from the people, apparently clueless that We The People cannot pay these higher taxes in an age where wages and salaries are being hammered into the ground and 90 million Americans cannot find a job at all!

It must be nice living in a little bubble of fantasy where you make huge bucks for fairy-tale solutions to real-world problems!

Halbig v. Burwell: The next big Obamacare case

In brief, these cases claim the IRS has exceeded its statutory authority in authorizing tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies on federal exchanges because the PPACA only authorizes tax credits for the purchase of insurance on an exchange “established by the State under Section 1311.” Section 1311 instructs states to create exchanges. Federal exchanges are established under Section 1321 of the Act.

At one level these cases present a straightforward statutory interpretation question. The text is clear and does not contradict any other provisions in the Act. That would seem to settle the matter.

Obamacare faces another court threat — and this one could be fatal

The threats to Obamacare just keep on coming……

A case before the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia may determine the Affordable Care Act was written in such a way that it prevents the federal government’s HealthCare.gov web site from offering subsidies.

Now such a ruling would have a long way to go before it actually would become enacted — and a lot of legal hoops would have to be jumped through — but such a finding could be a show-stopper for Obamacare. More than 5 million of the 8 million who signed up for Obamacare through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ web site would thus not be eligible for tax credits. Most, presumably, would fall off the rolls of the insured.

High-Level Departures Roil IRS's International Division

At a time of unprecedented attempts to thwart tax avoidance with FATCA and BEPS, and controversy swirling over the rush of U.S. corporations to use inversions to reduce their U.S. tax exposure, the IRS's Large Business & International Division has been stung by the sudden departures of several key people:

IRS scandal: Lawmakers fiercely demand Holder appoint special prosecutor

After many months of stonewalled investigations, "missing" subpoenaed emails, partisan bickering and uncooperative witnesses, House of Representatives chairmen from two congressional committees officially demanded on Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) targeting of conservative organizations and the subsequent cover-up perpetrated by IRS staff members.

Feds Spent $4.8 Billion on Obamacare Exchanges So Far

The federal government has spent nearly $5 billion to establish federal and state exchanges for Obamacare, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

The funding was provided by a section of the Affordable Care Act that allowed for “indefinite” funding at the discretion of the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is incurring significant administrative costs to support [federally-facilitated exchanges] FFE operations,” the report, which was released earlier this month, said.

IRS’s Lerner sought tax audit of Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley over his wife’s free meal

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, tried to get her agency to conduct an audit involving a sitting U.S. senator, according to emails released Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee.

Ms. Lerner suggested that the IRS look into whether it was wrong for a group to pay for Sen. Chuck Grassley’s wife to attend an event where he was slated to speak. Her suggestion was shot down by another IRS employee who said the arrangement appeared to be legal.

But the email chain, which was turned over to Congress as part of its investigation, raises more questions about Ms. Lerner.

“At every turn, Lerner was using the IRS as a tool for political purposes in defiance of taxpayer rights,” said Rep. Dave Camp, Michigan Republican and chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

U.S. Archivist David Ferriero: the IRS “did not follow the law”

Rep. Trey Gowdy hammered IRS Commissioner John Koskinen when he said that he found the IRS of no wrong doing. Gowdy pressed Koskinen on how he knows there was no criminal wrongdoing when he hasn’t looked at criminal statutes.

Gowdy blasted Koskinen and shouted, “You don’t have any idea of criminal wrongdoing or not!”

Gowdy, a former persecutor, told Koskinen that there is a “negative inference” because of the inability of the IRS to retrieve the Lerner emails that the IRS claim were destroyed.

It turns out though the IRS did break the law according to U.S. Archivist David Ferriero.

According to FreeBeacon.com, U.S. Archivist David Ferriero of the National Archives and Records Administration told Rep. Tim Walberg (R., Mich.) that the IRS “did not follow the law” when they failed to notify his administration that they had lost Lois Lerner’s email records.

'You have a problem with credibility': IRS chief comes under fire at House hearing

Embattled IRS Commissioner John Koskinen weathered another round of heated questioning at a Monday night hearing where lawmakers challenged his credibility over the discovery that years' worth of emails from ex-IRS official Lois Lerner have gone missing.

THE SONASOFT SAGA - THE IRS HAS A CONTRACT WITH A COMPANY THAT BACKS UP ALL OF THEIR EMAILS!

John Koskinen's testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee basically came down to "The Dog Ate My Emails", infuriating when you consider that the IRS demands all Americans keep all financial records for up to 7 years for possible review by the IRS, while the IRS was free to dispose of embarrassing and criminal evidence at their discretion. Worse, apparently emboldened by Attorney General Eric Holser's steadfast refusal to allow the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into the IRS' actions (possibly to to the DOJ's own complicity in siccing the FBI on Obama's enemies), Koskinin refused to even apologize for the lost emails, barely able to keep the smirk off of his face!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is going viral across the net today. By tomorrow the corporate media will have to cover it. That means Issa and Ryan will have no choice but to call the IRS on their obvious lie that there are no backups for the missing emails. Please share with all of your social media.

IRS CANCELLED Contract with Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lerner’s Computer Crash

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP.

If the IRS canceled the contact AFTER the Lois Lerner's email was lost, why didn't the IRS request those emails be restored BEFORE they ended the contract?

And given that they had lost emails prior to ending the Contract with Sonasoft, who did the IRS shift the contract to maintain compliance with email archiving laws to? Did the IRS just decide to stop complying with those laws and "hope for the best" with their demonstrably faulty email system?

Lost Emails? The IRS Has a Contract with an Email Backup Company

As IRS commissioner John Koskinen sat on Capitol Hill belatedly informing a Congressional committee of the "disappearance" of years of email communications from a host of IRS employees under investigation--including Lois Lerner--it was discovered that the IRS had hired an email backup company to prevent just such a loss of data.

The IRS Had a Contract With an Email Backup Company

The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for "automatic data processing services." Sonasoft's motto is "email archiving done right," and the company lists the IRS as a customer.

In 2009, Sonasoft even sent out a Tweet advertising its work for the IRS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

SHARE THIS EVERYWHERE!

UPDATE: I think I have found out why our representatives in DC are so clueless. I tried using the contact page at Darrel Issa's website but was blocked because I am in his district. I then tried faxing a hard copy of this article to his DC office using the FAX number from his website ... four times! All four failed, the first because his FAX doesn't support color and the final three with a communications error. If any of Rivero's Rangers has a contact on Issa's committee, get this article to them now!

UPDATE 2: I tried FAXing to Darrell Issa's district office. That connection also failed.

UPDATE 3: I tried using the web form over at the Committee On Oversight & Government Reform to send them the info on Sonasoft. That too will not function, simply responding with "An error occurred" when clicking the submit button.

This cannot just be coincidence.

UPDATE 4: The above link now shows a "404 page not found" error! But there is another copy of the article saved HERE! MAKE A LOCAL COPY BEFORE IT GETS ORWELLED!

UPDATE 5: I went to an office supply store and FAXed the original article to Darrell Issa's Washington DC and district offices. Unlike my home, (where the FAX machine is only three months old) the FAXes from the office store went through without any problems at all. Here are the reports.


Issa's District office

Issa's DC office
So, Issa's office now has the information. Included hard copy of the original article, which is fortunate given that the original has been yanked from the website without explanation.

UPDATE 7: The original article at reason.com has now been restored!

Sonasoft Software Licenses and Software Maintenance Support

Synopsis:
Added: Sep 12, 2008 1:01 pm
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to award a sole source purchase order to Sonasoft Corporation, for the purchase of the software licenses related to Exchange Disaster Recovery capabilities. These items and services have been determined to meet the definition of commercial items in accordance with Part 2.101 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

The IRS has a need for the following items:

CLIN 0001 – Sonasafe Application, Item Number SC, Quantity 4

CLIN 0002 – Exchange Standby License, Item Number SC-B, Quantity 4

CLIN 0003 – Exchange Agent, Item Number SE, Quantity 8

CLIN 0004 – Exchange Standby Agent, Item Number SE-S, Quantity 8

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This page at fbo.gov shows the renewal of services and licenses from Sonasoft for the IRS. Note that some of the products interface with Microsoft Exchange Server. This means that Lois Lerner's (and the other six IRS officials) emails did not reside solely on her local hard drive, but were archived by the built-in system of exchange as well as the added products from Sonasoft.

The IRS Had a Contract With an Email Backup Company - Another online copy.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said it can't provide emails sent between 2009 and 2011 that were requested by congressional investigators because of hard drive crashes.

The agency said that emails stored on dead drives were lost forever because its email backup tapes were recycled every six months, and employees were responsible for keeping their own long-term archives.

The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for "automatic data processing services." Sonasoft's motto is "email archiving done right," and the company lists the IRS as a customer.

A question of legality - GMO on Kauai

A Kauai lawmaker says his investigation of the county’s agricultural dedication law resulted in discovering “numerous serious violations of county law” by island landowners and agrochemical companies.

In a letter to Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr., Councilman Tim Bynum outlined the alleged violations, which include landowners and their lessees failing to properly adjust real property taxes and obtain conservation plans for new operations.

“If a thorough examination of these apparent abuses truly paints the picture as it seems, the implications are staggering,” Bynum wrote May 28. “There may be millions in unpaid tax liabilities.”

Further, it would index the gas tax to inflation, pegging it to the Consumer Price Index.

No matter how genuine the loss of the emails, no matter how innocent those at the IRS may be who are trying to comply with law, this doesn’ t look good.

Wealthy Clintons Use Residence Trusts to Limit Estate Tax They Back

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long supported an estate tax to prevent the U.S. from being dominated by inherited wealth. That doesn’t mean they want to pay it.

To reduce the tax pinch, the Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now tops out at 40 percent of assets upon death.

The IRS scandal explodes

Norman Cillo, an Army veteran who worked in intelligence and a former program manager at Microsoft, argued it is very difficult to lose emails for good and laid out six reasons why he believes Congress is “being lied to” about the Lerner emails:

1. I believe the government uses Microsoft Exchange for their email servers. They have built-in exchange mail database redundancy. So, unless they did not follow Microsofts recommendations they are telling a falsehood. You can see by the diagram below that if you have three servers in a DAG you have three copies of the database.

2. Every IT organization that I know of has hotswappable disk drives. Every server built since 2000 has them. Meaning that if a single disk goes bad it’s easy to replace.

NY Times: President Obama Should Unilaterally Raise the Tax Rate on Carried Interest Earned by Hedge Fund Managers

President Obama could change the tax treatment of carried interest with a phone call to the Treasury Department. But the White House will need a precise understanding of the regulatory landscape to make a change that is fair, easy to administer, and will hold up in court.

The administration has increasingly relied on executive branch rule-making authority to make policy without waiting for a gridlocked Congress to act. The White House has made significant changes to education policy, immigration policy, environmental standards and climate change policy, and, most recently, student loans. And it has the legal authority to unilaterally change the tax treatment of carried interest. ...

After the U.S. Justice Department in June turned over an IRS database to the House Oversight Committee in their response to a subpoena issued by the committee's chairman, Rep.

SULLIVAN VERSUS UNITED STATES TRANSCRIPT - PDF

This is a transcript from a court case, Sullivan Versus United States, in which Judge James C. Fox openly admits in the court record (page 23 of this PDF) that the 16th Amendment on which the personal income tax is based was never actually ratified.

He then goes on to admit that the government and courts will treat it as if it were ratified, simply because they have gotten away with it for so long!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Today, we are hearing that the Infernal Revenue Service has been targeting political dissidents to a far greater degree than was previously exposed. Going beyond merely delaying tax-exempt status for Tea-Party, Occupy, and conservatives in general, donors to GOP candidates like Mitt Romney have been hit with disproportionate numbers of audits.

All America is now aware that the IRS is acting illegally. After all, such political targeting was an article of impeachment against Richard Nixon. So the time has come to take the discussion to the next level. Is the IRS, clearly acting illegally, itself legal? and the answer is "no", it is not. The Constitution forbids direct non-apportioned taxation of the people. An earlier version of the Income Tax was struck down by the United States Supreme Court on those grounds.

The Federal Reserve (itself a clearly unconstitutional usurpation of the money-creation authority vested in Congress by the Constitution) and the IRS claim that the passage of the 16th Amendment allows an income tax, but there are several problems with that claim. First and foremost, the 16th Amendment failed ratification! The necessary 3/4 of the states did not ratify the Amendment. Requests for proof that this Amendment was actually ratified are ignored. The IRS considers their enforcement actions the only legal reply they are required to make. And judges in tax courts (who are funded from tax revenues) inevitably refuse to examine the issue and simply declare from the bench that the Amendment was ratified, a power and authority not granted to judges under the Constitution.

There is one notable exception to this judicial legerdemain, and that is judge James C. Fox, who stated quite clearly in the court record for Sullivan Vs United States that the 16th Amendment, on examination, failed ratification. Sadly, however, that was not a tax case, and the judge mentioned the non-ratification of the 16th Amendment as justification for the enforcement of laws that may not have legally been passed, but were presumed valid through long use (i.e. we got away with it this long, so why should we change it now).

Yet another problem with the 16th Amendment is the United States Supreme Court, which ruled in Stanton vs Baltic Mining that the 16th Amendment, even if ratified, did not actually grant any new tax authority to the US Government. For one thing the original Constitutional prohibition against a direct non-apportioned tax is still in effect because it was not explicitly repealed by the hastily-contrived 16th Amendment.

So here we are, with the IRS clearly breaking the law, acting illegally, for all America to see, which is why this is a great time for activists to take the public discussion to the next level and ask if the IRS itself, and its master, the Federal Reserve, are actually legal under the Constitution.

On January 10, 2008, the Federal District Court in Chicago issued a permanent injunction against Bill Benson on the grounds that by offering information demonstrating that the 16th Amendment was not legally ratified, he was promoting an abusive tax shelter. The Court then refused to look at the government-certified documentary evidence, deciding instead that the facts necessary to prove his statements true were "irrelevant."

The Federal Reserve (itself a clearly unconstitutional usurpation of the money-creation authority vested in Congress by the Constitution) and the IRS claim that the passage of the 16th Amendment allows an income tax, but there are several problems with that claim. First and foremost, the 16th Amendment failed ratification! The necessary 3/4 of the states did not ratify the Amendment. Requests for proof that this Amendment was actually ratified are ignored. The IRS considers their enforcement actions the only legal reply they are required to make. And judges in tax courts (who are funded from tax revenues) inevitably refuse to examine the issue and simply declare from the bench that the Amendment was ratified, a power and authority not granted to judges under the Constitution.

There is one notable exception to this judicial legerdemain, and that is judge James C. Fox, who stated quite clearly in the court record for Sullivan Vs United States that the 16th Amendment, on examination, failed ratification. Sadly, however, that was not a tax case, and the judge mentioned the non-ratification of the 16th Amendment as justification for the enforcement of laws that may not have legally been passed, but were presumed valid through long use (i.e. we got away with it this long, so why should we change it now).

Yet another problem with the 16th Amendment is the United states Supreme Court, which ruled in Stanton vs Baltic Mining that the 16th Amendment, even if ratified, did not actually grant any new tax authority to the US Government. For one thing the original Constitutional prohibition against a direct non-apportioned tax is still in effect because it was not explicitly repealed by the hastily-contrived 16th Amendment.

So here we are, with the IRS clearly breaking the law, acting illegally, for all America to see, which is why this is a great time for activists to take the public discussion to the next level and ask if the IRS itself, and its master, the Federal Reserve, are actually legal under the Constitution.

Oaksterdam University Raid 'Payback' For California's Marijuana Legalization Effort?

The man who bankrolled California's closest shot yet at fully legalizing marijuana, Prop. 19, saw his Oaksterdam University cannabis college in Oakland raided by federal authorities yesterday.
And pot advocates are fuming.

The Drug Policy Alliance suggests the raid by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Internal Revenue Service might have served one possible goal:
"Payback" for the 2010 legalization effort that failed but made a good try of it. The ballot effort was backed by Richard Lee, the millionaire owner of Oaksterdam.

Keeping the Slaves on the Plantation: Senate Says No Passport if You Owe Taxes

Eric Blair
Activist Post

CBS is reporting that Senate Bill 1813 that would "suspend passport rights for delinquent taxpayers" passed the Senate 74-22 on March 14th.

A bill authored by a Southland lawmaker that could potentially allow the federal government to prevent any Americans who owe back taxes from traveling outside the U.S. is one step closer to becoming law.

...The 'Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act' or 'MAP-21' includes a provision that would allow for the 'revocation or denial' of a passport for anyone with 'certain unpaid taxes' or 'tax delinquencies'.

On April 19, 2012, two days after the April 17 tax deadline, peace activist and Gold Star Mother Cindy Sheehan will appear in court in Sacramento, California. The Justice Department, on behalf of the IRS, is seeking to discover why she hasn’t paid taxes in recent years. Sheehan has responded that “If the feds can give me my son back, I’ll pay my taxes.” She became a relentless peace activist following her son’s 2004 combat death in Iraq.

Consider this; we know from the Mortgage Backed Securities Fraud that the US Government refuses to investigate or even acknowledge the largest money-junkie frauds.

What if they have been doing that all along?

Romney Declines To Enroll In Medicare

Mitt Romney Declines To Enroll In Medicare So He Can Destroy It

Monday was Mitt Romney's 65th birthday. Happy birthday, Mittens. In honor of his 65th birthday he announced that he would not be enrolling in Social Security or Medicare. How noble. Except, it's not.

In deference to the conservative dogs nipping his heels, Romney has endorsed the Paul Ryan Medicare plan which would voucherize Medicare and leave senior citizens floundering on their own with private insurance companies. Of course, if you asked Mitt Romney about it, what you'd get is a bunch of lies. Really awful, cynical, blatant lies.

FLASHBACK - OFFSHORING AMERICAN JOBS - Corporations, Campaign Cash, & Bush Administration Policies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This document lays out the means by which the Bush administration changed the laws and tax codes to allow and even encourage corporations to send high-paying jobs to American companies even as Wall Street was already cranking up the machine to create and sell fraudulent mortgage=-backed securities.

The email responses to my expose' that the US is being looted to cover the buyback of fraudulent mortgage-backed securities usually view the firestorm of foreclosures as a knee=jerk reaction by the bankers to keep their balance sheets intact, but in looking at the timing of the Bush policies, and the fact that President George W. Bush was the first President to end his administration with fewer working Americans since Hoover, it seems clear that it was intended right from the start of the crisis to destroy Americans' ability to pay their mortgages, in order to allow the banks to seize those homes to preserve their capital structure.

Outright nationalization of private property would have triggered a rebellion, but by getting rid of the high paying jobs, the banks could grab the property to recapitalize themselves and make it look like it was the homeowners' fault!

This is the only possible explanation of why, in his first two years in Office, President Obama did nothing to stop the offshoring of American jobs, and indeed in the last two years, overall, offshoring has increased, and those jobs are never coming back!

This disaster is a deliberate creation of Wall Street and Washington DC. It's purpose is at best fulfillment of simple greed by the money addicts; at worse a plot to trap the whole world in a globalized version of a private central bank; a Federal Reserve on steroids!
