Well, I guess it was only a matter of time, but the IRS is coming after Claire and I over some back taxes which we simply do not have the money to pay. No doubt they are looking to go after everyone else trying to stop the rush to war with Syria. Our PayPal account has been seized, so don't bother sending in any more donations; send it to RBN.
We have endured this harassment for many years, but I can no longer remain silent, nor should anyone who is dealing with these issues.
In all good conscience, I cannot pay taxes to a government that ignores the will of the people and usurps their wealth to fund wars, bail out bankers, and support foreign governments, while allowing this nation to whither away.
More than that, I have satisfied myself that the 16th Amendment did in fact fail ratification and that the income tax and the Federal reserve are unconstitutional and illegal. In this age of lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons and Assad's chemical weapons, Americans are probably ready to accept that the same government also lied about the 16th Amendment in order to steal their money.
I don't know how this will end. We could wind up homeless, and certainly it may mean the end of whatreallyhappened.com after almost 20 years.
I have been fighting against this government ever since they wrecked my career over the Vince Foster case. It has been very hard through the years and we understood it could likely end very badly.
I did not wish to burden the readers with my personal problems, but the fact is I cannot bring myself to cooperate with this illegitimate government, even if I had the means to do so, and going public seems my only option now

A totalitarian government can do what they want. They stink.
I've heard you can do a one-time "Offer in Compromise" with the IRS, and settle for much less than what you owe. Here's a link: http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Offer-in-Compromise-1
There are companies that handle it for you but if you want to go at it on your own, here's another link to the IRS' PDF of form 656 Offer in Compromise, with instructions: http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Offer-in-Compromise-1

Good luck to you. And to hell with the IRS!
There is a statute of limitations on back taxes of 10 years. My husband and I had the same problem and we never responded and just ignored them. When 10 years arrived we sent notification in writing that the statue of limitations had passed and we demanded the lien release for those taxes. They sent it. Its when you file and sign, and respond to their correspondance before 10 years, that you get in trouble since those acts validate your waiver of your rights. The IRS is not a legal entity in this country. That is why it is housed off shore in Puerto Rico. Its the COLLECTION ARM OF THE IMF.
Thank you, Mike, for all the great work you have done these many years, and for publishing my articles at your worthy web site. I hope you find a way out of this mess and can continue your work in the face of adversity. We need you!
It was Carl Sagan who once wrote “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
All the best to you my friend,
Don't end up like Ed and Elaine Brown. All the alternative media attention they got and look what happened. They ended up in prison for the rest of their lives. It's not even close to worth it.
A wise warrior knows to only fight the battles he can win. Don't be an emotional idealist. It's the surest path to defeat.
Can't really argue. Much merit to this thought presented Kript.
BUT at the same time, is there not some truth to just dam well doing what is right, for rights sake? If U know what I mean?
We really need to stop feeding the beast and refuse to be part of it, IN EVERY WAY! And would that not be the solution at the tipping point of enough souls doing so? Yes the first ones to do so will get Fed, agreed. Not a good way to live to fight another day.
Yea, but how much "right" are Ed and Elaine Brown doing from their prison cells? None, that's how much.
Fall back and live to fight another day.
Sun Tzu and just about every other great commander (you name them) would agree with me. George Washington retreated many times. He also survived and won the war that brought us our independence...
Don't be the naive, sappy, idealist. Mike Rivero is a good guy, but he doesn't have to make himself a martyr. That archetype only works if you're at the forefront. Even then it's not a guaranteed win for the team.
Don't be a fool Mike Rivero.
