Debunking IRS Lies
The United States government is pretty much in the full-time business of lying. Most of the state governments have jumped on the “lying” bandwagon as well. We wish it were not so. In fact, the purpose of this site is to educate the American public in the hope that such actions will no longer be tolerated by our “public servants”, and such egregious conduct will end.
When a small child lies to us, it’s usually pretty easy to tell. When we see the empty cookie jar, and our child sitting in a circle of cookie crumbs, we know that he is lying when he tells us that he didn’t eat any cookies. Unfortunately, when the government lies, it’s a lot harder to pin down the lie. The government pays very good money, to some very skilled lawyers, to formulate very well structured lies, so we need to be very sharp to catch their lies. Fortunately, all their lies (at least about the law) rely on just a few readily discernable methods of misleading you.
The government does not tell you a direct lie to your face. That would be much too easy to catch. Instead the government relies on the deceptive use of “legal terms” that you don’t understand the meaning of, nor are you even aware that the “words” you’re reading are actually “legal terms” that have been defined by the government to mean something completely different than what you think they mean in plain English. [See The Language of Law within this site for more detail on this issue.]
Additionally, the government uses “jurisdictional context” as a means of confusing the average American. The vast majority of Americans believe that when they read a publication written by a government agency, it has been written with the intention of clarifying matters for the Citizen. The reality is just the opposite. Let’s look at an example to illustrate the point:
The Federal Food and Drug Act is only applicable in matters involving interstate or foreign commerce. In other words, if you make a cosmetic cream and sell it only within your state, the FDA has no jurisdiction to regulate your product. However, a hypothetical section of the Federal Food and Drug Act might state, “Every cosmetic product manufactured in the United States must be…”[blah, blah, blah]. However, because the context of the Act is that it applies only to interstate and foreign commerce, the legislative draftsmen who wrote the law intentionally left that part out when selecting the specific language to be used. If they had been forthright, the statute would read as, “Every cosmetic product manufactured in the United States, and shipped in interstate or foreign commerce, must be…“.
[Editor’s Note: Many statutes passed in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s included such forthright language, but during the 70’s and 80’s most of that language was amended out of the law. We must now refer to the text of the original statutes to find the true limits of the government’s authority]
