Ed & Elaine Brown - My observations
Tammy and I went to New Hampshire last weekend to visit with Ed and Elaine
Brown. Wow, is Route 2
Ed and Elaine have been in the news as of late due to the fact that
they have refused to file a 1040 income tax form, since there is no law
requiring most people to do so. The
judge issued a warrant for their arrest in April and they have essentially
stated this is a criminal government and they will not go peaceably; rather,
they are prepared to defend their lives, home and property with force of
arms - force seems to be the only language our tyrannical government seems
to understand these days.
While they aren’t surrounded with tanks and foreign military
personnel like the debacle at Waco; and aren’t being stormed by the FBI
like that criminal agency did at Ruby Ridge, there have been reports of U.S.
Marshals lurking around in their tree line and even taking a couple of shots
at one of their friends while walking their dog.
I believe the reason the Feds haven’t gone in ripping and tearing
with all guns blazing, or brought out the tanks and flamethrowers like they
have done in the past is because the Browns are too hard to paint a demonic
face on. The mainstream media
was very good at describing Branch Davidian leader, David Koresh as some
kind of child abuser/cult leader, which wasn’t true - and Randy Weaver at
Ruby Ridge as a “White Separatist.”
I met Randy Weaver at the Browns’ home and found him to be a very
nice, quiet, decent man.
No, Ed and Elaine are just your average professionals.
I believe Ed is an exterminator and Elaine had a successful Dentistry
practice up until recently when the Feds stomped all over that and ruined
Elaine reminds me a little of my “aunt” Gloria Kilcollins.
She does a lot of smiling, is very friendly to people and doesn’t
let anyone feed her a line of ‘bull’ - especially
Ed and Elaine have been researching our income tax laws for twenty
years while most of their contemporaries have been busy sucking their thumbs
and watching stupid television
sit-coms. I have been doing my own research for about seven years.
They have concluded, as I have, that there is no law on the books
requiring most people in this Union to file a 1040 income tax form.
Also, by filing the form you are waiving your fifth amendment right
against self-incrimination by providing information the government can use
against you in court. Now, the
Supreme Court has ruled the self-incrimination nature of a 1040 doesn’t
violate the fifth amendment, but they also determined all black people to be
slaves at an earlier time in our history.
Just because a judge renders an improper ruling, doesn’t make it
right. Our cops and sheriffs
have to start figuring that out before they run around like mad dogs blindly
carrying out these illegal judicial decrees by judges bought and paid for by
banks and corporations. Tyranny
always comes to your door wearing a badge and a gun.
Ed and Elaine are simply taking a stand against a rogue government
and out of control judges and bureaucrats - a stand that could cost them
A lot of other people across this country seem to be very interested
in the plight of the Browns. Less
than 24 hours after I posted my version of their story on the internet there
were 5,000 visits to that page. A
week later, as of this printing, we’re at 7,600 and counting - that’s
more than twice the population
of Fort Fairfield! People are desperate
for the truth and these numbers show the mainstream news isn’t providing
Tammy and I visited the Browns to get the story that the national
media is either ignoring completely, or is too stupid or scared to tell
accurately. The Browns are more
than willing to pay income tax, once the Feds show them the law requiring
them to do so. However, since
there is no law, it’s bound to be a long wait.
