Free or Die Concert
Editor/Publisher, Fort Fairfield Journal
Either terrorists took the
or it must not have been too
busy around the office on Saturday, July 14, since the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) was able to take time to harass
a private backyard barbecue picnic and concert in Plainfield, New Hampshire
at the location of the Ed and Elaine Brown I.R.S. standoff there.
Like a couple of Junior High School kids crashing a Senior class
dance, the DHS helicopter pilots hovered just over the treetops of Ed and
Elaine Brown's home skimming the treetops, "buzzing" the crowd at
low levels and constantly harassing and beeping its on-board siren at the
crowd of 200, who were there enjoying the "Live
Free or Die" concert
put on by Genesis Communications Network (GCN).
In my opinion it was incredibly clumsy to have sent this chopper to
harass the Browns, and their guests,
said Jack Blood, a GCN radio talk show host who was in attendance there. However,
It looked great for the
many cameras documenting the event, and must have been thrilling for those
watching on the myriad of live web casts.
The markings which were clearly visible on the helicopter were
traced through the FAA's website to show the Department of Homeland Security
as the registered owner. N187AE
was the "N" number clearly visible on the craft's body, that
allowed concert organizers to conduct the trace online while the concert was
That's an illegal gathering, and it's not a safe situation for
anybody to really go to, and the people who go there have to realize that,

can't say it's safe for anybody to go there. We will not send emergency
vehicles into this area, no matter what.
Contrary to Police Chief Gillens opinion, the U.S. Constitution
does enumerate the right of the people to peaceably assemble in the
First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
The only danger I could see was the helicopter recklessly flying
literally about 25 feet above the treetops, which would make it below 200
feet, for four and a half hours,

radio program The

Later that evening, after the concert,
a fireworks show was provided at
the Browns home which
caused some concern. Mr.
Brown did contact the tower at Lebanon airport to ask the helicopter to
remove itself to above 1500 feet. We
didn't want them to get hurt while we were running the fireworks, and we
wanted to thank them for the security they gave us for four and a half
hours, plus the air show.
There was a police presence in the area in

According to former Illinois Bureau of Revenue investigator Bill
Benson, the Constitutional amendment that purportedly authorized an income
tax wasn't even properly ratified by the requisite number of states to begin
with. In his book, The
Law That Never Was, Benson
reveals how he traveled to the capitols of every state in the Union that was
a state when the 16th amendment - the so-called Income
was enacted. He combed each
state's archives to investigate how or if that amendment was ratified and
found that the requisite number of states did not duly ratify it; thereby
rendering it null and void.
The Internal Revenue Service is the collection arm of the private,
run-for-profit Federal Reserve Bank, which isn't part of the federal
government, and has no reserves. The
Federal Reserve's system of private, debt-based money was implemented in the
winter of 1913, while most Congressmen were home for Christmas break.
The Congress ultimately handed full control of our nation's money
system over to that private banking cartel comprised of private,
In June, 1933, Congress passed House Joint Resolution 192 which
abrogated our Constitutional money system of gold and silver coinage and
authorized worthless paper bank notes in its place, without any authorizing
There is currently no known law requiring the inhabitants of any state in the Union to file or
pay income tax. The Internal
Revenue Code only grants authority to enforce income tax in the territories
and possessions of the U.S. government, such as the District of Columbia,
American Samoa, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam - which are the only
places the U.S. Constitution
authorizes legislative power to the U.S. government.
The Feds have no authority to enforce a direct tax upon the people
who live within any of the States because the States are not territories or
possessions of the U.S. Government, they are sovereign independent entities.
However, judges and law enforcement officers have been unwittingly enforcing
that law inappropriately for years.
When the income tax amendment was allegedly
passed and the subsequent laws written in 1913-1916, the U.S. citizenry
didnt have access to radio television or internet the way they do today.
It was virtually impossible for most people to access a law library
or even a copy of the U.S. Code, which today can be obtained in mere seconds
online. Over the past twenty
years citizen researchers have been diligently researching the income tax
laws and how, for decades, they have been erroneously applied to confiscate
the labor of all Americans.
Nearly half a dozen bands and entertainers performed at the Live
Free or Die concert

The first concert was held on June 23,
2007 and was hosted solely

This recent concert
was a very festive event full of camaraderie, said vonKleist, who also performed at the Live Free or Die
