|Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's|
The Church's Year
The Introit of this day's Mass is the sigh of an afflicted soul confiding in God:
INTROIT Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a place of refuge, to save me: for thou art my strength and my refuge: and for thy name's sake thou wilt be my leader, and wilt nourish me. (Fs. XXX. 3. 4.) In thee , O Lord, I have hoped, let me never be confounded: deliver me in thy justice, and set me free. (Ps. XXX. 2.)
COLLECT O Lord, we beseech Thee, graciously hear our prayers, and unloosing the bonds of our sins, guard us from all adversity. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE (I. Cor. XIII. 1-13.) Brethren, if I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And if I should have prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not; dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; is not ambitious; seeketh not her own; is not provoked to anger; thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part: but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known. And now there remain faith, hope, charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity.
EXPLANATION In this epistle St. Paul speaks of the necessity, the excellence and the nature of true charity. He says that all natural and supernatural gifts, all good works, even martyrdom, cannot save us if we have not charity; because love alone can render our works pleasing to God. Without charity, therefore, though ever so many prayers be recited, fasts observed , and good deeds performed, nothing will be acceptable to God, or merit eternal life. Strive then, O Christian soul, to lead a pious life in love, and to remain always in the state of grace.
Can faith alone, as the so-called Reformers assert, render man just and save him?

Yes, be grateful for the Russians. Very grateful. And not for the first time, either. You were never taught this in school, but during the Civil War the British were poised to come ashore and attack the people they were honor-bound to protect. It was the Russian Czar who sent his navy to impose an international blockade that prevented the British from attacking then. It is the Russian-Chinese Alliance that is preventing them from attacking us now.
The Brits were ready to tear us a new one back in the 1860's, but the threat of war with Russia over it was too great a risk to take for the pleasure involved. It's the same thing now. Russia is protecting us. The British Government, the British Crown Corporation and the old European Hegemony left over from the Holy Roman Empire is the threat. That's the group that has been feeding off us like vampires and embroiling us in wars for profit for the last 150 years. Not the Russians. Not the Chinese.
For those of you who can't read the Tea Leaves: France, specifically, Bank of France, is returning $475 trillion dollars of ours that they just happened to have in "safe-keeping" for us. Of course, they weren't saying a word about this arrangement to us. They were laying back in the weeds hoping that we would be too stupid to be able to follow the paper trail and figure out that we aren't the ones in debt. They hoped that we would just abandon all those assets and never exercise our creditor status, but..... we did. Thank God.
During the time period when they hoped we would be Numbnutz and allow them to claim abandonment of those funds, they generously used a portion of our own money to loan back to our servants in the Territorial United States Government and they launched what I have called "Le Neu Republique"--- the New (supposedly American, but actually French) Republic, in hopes of simply creating a new government service contract for themselves via a process of debt assumption. If we were dumb enough to assume the debt, they would be sharp enough to assume the priority creditor position and loan our money to our public servants at interest.
How cozy. France loans us our own money at interest, and to our Hired Help, appears to be the New Boss on the Block. Can everyone here say the Big Word--- "usurpation"? That's why we repeatedly rebuffed Jacob Rothschild and said, "Thanks, but no thanks." to the offer.
It's our money. We don't need to loan it to our Hired Help at interest. And we don't need French contractors in here providing us with "essential government services" last time I looked. With $475 trillion in the bank, we can afford to hire and fire whoever we want. We can have an actual American Republic instead of something that appears to be American and isn't.
Now, some of you who have been following the actual news instead of the fake news will remember talk last fall about Canada coming in and taking over the bankrupt United States? If the British Government had its way, we'd be at war with CANADA --which owes us a ton of money and would be hoping to win and thereby avoid paying---and the UN CORP, which is in a similar position.
But once again, the Russians came to our rescue, put their foot down, and said, "NYET!" to that plan.
Once again, as in the 1860's, the Russian Navy weighed in, very quietly, and gave the British Schemers enough to think about.
So it's because of the Russians that our unprotected borders are not crawling with Mexican, Canadian and UN Troops. It's because of the Russians that our country is at relative peace and making headway toward recouping our purloined assets and settling our business affairs responsibly. It's because of the Russians that people and countries that are deeply indebted to us-- the Brits, the European Union, and most of the rest of the world--aren't busily trying to kill us or take us over to avoid paying their own debts.
America, with respect to the British Government, has been like a stupid young school girl in love with an evil older man, the seventeen year-old who mistakes self-interested lust for love, and trustingly gives and gives and gives to Uncle Monty. It is long past time for everyone to grow up and wake up and figure out who our real enemies are and have always been.
For the past 150 years all we have heard about are the bad Russians, be afraid of the Russians, the evil Ruskies.... but the Russians have kept watch and stood at our back more than once and have defended us against powers and principalities that pretended to be our friends and allies ---and weren't.
Also, if you look at the situation in light of the Secret Treaty of Verona (1822) it is apparent that we and our American republican states, with our egalitarian ideals, and our desire for limited government---are natural enemies of the old Holy Roman Empire and the British Monarchs, as a mongoose is the natural enemy of a snake. They believe in the "divine rights" of Monarchs and Popes, but we don't and the Russians don't either.
We have far more in common ideologically with the Russians in terms of honoring the Common Man, aka, soldiers, workers, and farmers---than we will ever have with the Monarchists and Papists.
It's time we recognized the self-interested motivation that the old European Monarchies and the Popes have had for preaching anti-Russian propaganda to us for decades. They've kept us deluded about the "Russian Threat" because Russian Communism, like American Independence, is a threat to them and their power and their feudalistic system that requires enslaving the many to feed the gross appetites of a few.
Am I worried about President Trump working with the Russians? No, I am glad and grateful to see it. I am relieved to see it. It tells me that the President is not a fool, and that perhaps, at long last, we will have the common sense to give Uncle Monty a well-deserved kick the rump, clean up our own mess, and restore our own government.
We claimed our independence from Britain in 1776. It's high time we exercised it.

Your private earnings are being deliberately mischaracterized as corporate income in order to tax you and make you liable to pay federal income taxes.
As I have said before, the federal government is totally foreign and is supposed to operate only in international jurisdictions. So when you pay federal taxes you are paying them to a foreign government, as if you were a German paying taxes to France.
Federal services are supposed to be paid for by: (a) our states and (b) by sin taxes on alcohol, tobacco, and firearms and (c) by any special purpose directly apportioned or excise taxes that are truly necessary.
The states have resources and public lands to manage and sell and all that guarantees substantial income, so that they as the actual parties making the contract to receive services from the federal government are supposed to be paying the lion's share for those services that they would otherwise be expected to provide for themselves.
Above and beyond that, the federal government has the income from alcohol, tobacco, and firearms manufacture and sales. Such so-called "sin taxes" placed on regulated substances bring in a lot of money to pay for federal services each year. There are also special excise taxes placed on gasoline and oil purchases, telephone services, natural gas utilities, internet services, pension and insurance plans and international sales of goods and services.
Between the deliberately mis-applied income tax and all these other taxes, the Average American pays between 50 and 60 percent of their earnings every year for services from the federal government corporations, and that is not counting the substantial bite taken out each year by inflation.
Inflation is, in effect, a silent and murderous tax that clicks along no matter where your money is or what it is or is not invested in.
Compare these rates of taxation with the most abused serfs in the Middle Ages who paid the king up to 25% of their gross production every year, and you will see that we have indeed suffered through "great tribulation"--- as in paying "tribute" to Caesar.
The income tax is especially onerous. It was imposed on federal employees as a "privilege tax" to be paid as franchise taxes, supposedly in equitable exchange for the benefits of public employment, and also on federally chartered corporations in exchange for the benefit of incorporation--- bankruptcy protection, stockholder asset protection, and so on.
This special tax on federal employees can certainly be seen as unjust, until you realize that these people have knowingly signed up to work for this foreign government and that people are free to accept or reject their offers of employment, warts, enfranchisement, income taxes, and all.
The rest of us, however, who don't get a federal paycheck and who are not operating as federal franchises, are not now and never have been liable to pay federal income taxes.
Think about it--- can France tax a German? No.
Can a German volunteer to pay a tax to the French government? Sure, if he wants to.
And that is what happened in World War II. The Territorial United States Congress set up a Victory Tax program by which patriotic Americans could volunteer to have an amount equal to the tax paid by federal employees deducted from their take home pay and put toward the war effort. We signed up by the millions..... but, even through the Second World War ended in September 1945, the end date on the Victory Tax legislation simply set the end date "as the end of hostilities" and Congress never repealed the legislation nor amended the language.
Using the so-called Cold War as its excuse, the Territorial United States Congress went right on taxing millions of Americans under false pretenses. Ever since then there has been some kind of euphemistic, specious "war" going on which allows the cretins to claim that there are "ongoing hostilities" that justify continuing to tax Americans under these false pretenses.
Once unsuspecting Americans sign a 1040 under penalty of perjury stating that they are Withholding Agents, other juicy provisions kick in as well. A "Withholding Agent" is a Warrant Officer in the Queen's Merchant Marine Service, and you have unwittingly sworn under penalty of perjury that you are one. You automatically become subject to Territorial United States statutory law, are presumed to have voluntarily given up your political status as an American, and are required to file and keep filing taxes every year thereafter. If you don't you are not doing your "voluntary" quasi-military job duties, and if you complain that you aren't really a Withholding Agent, you are dead in the water because you have already signed on the dotted line that you are one.
In this way, the perpetrators not only get the fat tax revenue, they gain control over you and subject you to their territorial statutory law, which allows them to prosecute you under the British Equity Law system and allows them to use their "discretion" to dispose of you and your assets however they see fit.
Thus, what started out as a Good Faith effort by Americans to help win the Second World War became an instrument of oppression and false impersonation the likes of which the world has seldom seen since the days of Ancient Egypt. Since 1941 the territorial Internal Revenue Service and the municipal IRS have pillaged and wantonly plundered the earnings and assets of millions of Americans who never held any kind of federal job, never realized any actual profit or benefit from this system, and who never actually owed any "income tax" at all.
So, you say, there must be a remedy to this gross injustice. If nothing else, the rats must have left an "out" for themselves, and so there is. If you are not a federal employee or dependent and not operating in the capacity of a federal franchise corporation, you can "revoke" your election to pay federal income taxes that you never owed in the first place.
All you have to do is send a Registered Letter, Return Receipt Requested, to the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (Territorial) and the Commissioner of the IRS (Municipal) and inform them of your decision to revoke your election to pay federal income taxes and setting an effective date for the revocation.
This last bit can be tricky, as they keep changing the dates of their own fiscal years so as to trap unwary people with a few months of unaccounted for "income" left hanging---which they then use to prosecute the victim. It used to be that was the beginning of the federal fiscal year for all departments and agencies. Then some began using as the beginning of their fiscal year.
My advice would be to set the effective date a year and a half or two years prior to any current tax year. For example, for the 2017 Tax Year due , I would make the effective date July 1, 2016 or January 1, 2016, just to be sure I made the severance date include all possible taxes due for 2017.
For those who haven't filed in a few years for whatever reasons, you can revoke election to pay retroactively for up to ten (10) years, so long as you have not filed any of those years.
The bottom line is that if you aren't a federal employee or dependent and aren't operating as a federal franchise corporation as a result, you never owed the income tax in the first place.
But what about the Congressional Acts that tax Social Security income of retirees? The Territorial United States Congress and its "Acts" have no authority related to an American standing on dry land. That's for starters. Secondly, the only portion or percentage of Social Security income that can be taxed would be that portion deriving from actual federal employment.
Say that you worked as a federal civilian employee for twenty years and then worked in the private sector for a Mom and Pop Store for twenty years. The only portion of your Social Security that would be taxable would be the portion derived from actual federal employment.
Please note that many Americans have trivial amounts of federal employment wages that contribute a few dollars per month to Social Security payments, mostly from part-time work such as firefighter wages for the Park Service, or a couple year stint in the military fifty years ago. Each case is different so you have to look at your own employment history, but in the vast majority of cases the amount of federal wages and the resulting contribution to Social Security retirement payments is far less than the standard deductible and can be safely ignored.
So unless you actually worked for the federal government your whole working life, you most likely don't have to pay income taxes on 100% of your Social Security payments and may not have to pay any federal income taxes on your Social Security payments at all.
Please note that the vermin will try to mischaracterize Social Security payments based on your actual labor as "benefits"--- which are welfare payments, not pension payments based on money you and your employers paid into the system.
They will also try to mischaracterize Social Security payments as "income" instead of pension payments. The word "income" specifically means corporate accruals of profit separated from capital. If you aren't an actual federal employee and aren't acting in the capacity of a federal corporation franchise, you have no "income"--- what you have are "private earnings" being mischaracterized as "income".
This additional after-the-fact Second Helping of people's earnings is perhaps the most galling betrayal of trust of all. Most American are owed 100% of any Social Security payments tax-free, but by continuing to tax federal employee wages a second time, even after they are separated from employment and officially "retired", the vermin in Washington, DC contrive to make what superficially appear to be claims on the pension payments they owe to people who never worked an actual day in their life for the federal government and they thereby reduce the quality of life for millions of American Seniors for no good reason but corporate greed.
Do you want to support corporations that knowingly, willfully bilk millions of innocent American Seniors out of pension payments they earned fair and square?
I don't. That's why I pulled the plug in 1998, revoked my "voluntary" election to pay federal income taxes, and never looked back. It is past time for the good-natured and patriotic and generous American people to pull the plug and stop paying taxes they don't owe to foreign government corporations that have acted in gross breach of trust and promoted commercial crimes on our soil.
Let them tap all their Slush Funds and "Externally Managed Investment Funds" and pony up every penny and every service that they owe to American Seniors ---and unless you worked for the federal government your entire working life, slap their hands when they come to tax your Social Security payments a second time. Revoke your election to pay and stand there on your little flat feet and repeat after me: "I ain't no Federale."

Unincorporated = Sovereign.
Unincorporated = Sovereign.
Unincorporated = Sovereign.
Here are the niceties: a man is not a name. A name is a "person".
A man is naturally unincorporated and sovereign in nature. He does not depend on recognition or written charters or agreements for his existence. He doesn't even have a name when he starts out, and when he acquires a name after being born, that name is "corporate" but not "incorporated".
A Given Name is a Trade Name operating within the international land jurisdiction. "John Mark Doe" is a person that belongs to one of the people. It is a possession or gift given to us by our parents, just like a bicycle or a hope chest. Such a name is "corporate" but not "incorporated".
For example, we often see business names like "Fletcher and Sons" and "Bo-Peep's Sheep Yarns" that are not incorporated entities. These small businesses are corporate, fictional entities, but they are not chartered by any government or parent corporation, receive no special privileges, are not franchises and owe nobody but their owners for their existence.
