The Next Shoe Just Dropped: Court Denies Attorney-Client Privilege

Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,

In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom.

You're told that you live in the freest country on the planet. You're told that other nations 'hate you' for your freedom.

And you're told that you have the most open and fair justice system in the world.

This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles-- things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege.

Yet each of these core pillars has been systematically dismantled over the years:

1. So that it can operate with impunity outside of the law, the federal government has set up its own secret FISA courts to rubber stamp NSA surveillance.

According to data obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, of the nearly 34,000 surveillance requests made to FISA courts in the last 35-years, only ELEVEN have been rejected.

Unsurprising given that FISA courts only hear the case from the government's perspective. It is literally a one-sided argument in FISA courts. Hardly an impartial hearing, no?

2. The concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' may officially exist in courts, but administratively it was thrown out long ago.

These days there are hundreds of local, state, and federal agencies that can confiscate your assets, levy your bank account, and freeze you out of your life's savings. None of this requires a court order.

By the time a case goes to court, you have been deprived of the resources you need to defend yourself. You might technically be presumed innocent, but you have been treated and punished like a criminal from day one.

Makes perfect sense to me. If you're in Tax Court you've already

admitted guilt.

At that point, it's not in your power to mitigate what is owed, it's up to the government to figure out how to punish you.

NEVER EVER NEVER go to "Tax Court."

If you do not understand how ending up in Tax Court means you've already pleaded guilty, then you need to do more homework.

Tax Court is NOT a judicial court. It is an administrative 'arbitration' panel where the government figures out just how much you unlawfully did not pay and how best to extract blood from you, the turnip.

If you are in Tax Court, you are LONG past the question of guilt or innocence, and the answer was not in your favor.

It makes perfect sense that at the point of Tax Court, you no longer have any attorney-client privilege nor can you offer anything in your defense. That's not what Tax Court is for.

That sums up the circumstances we now find in ourselves in

very well.

Bump.
