[Note: I tried to send this message a while back, and only just
noticed that it never made it to the list. So here it is, slightly
Determined to crush dissent and squelch open discussion at all
costs, the federal government is once again seeking to punish a
"tax heretic"--someone with the gall to suggest that the federal
income tax is not what it seems. This time they are going after
Sherry Peel Jackson, having charged her with several counts of
misdemeanor "willful failure to file" (the same thing they falsely
accused me of).
A while back they did the same Gestapo stunt to her that they did
to me, with armed fascists invading her home. Nothing like a bunch
of unthinking jackboots stealing materials that constitute
perfectly legal speech, protected (supposedly) by the First
Amendment, to show just how much "our" government values open
public discourse and the free exchange of ideas.
I never thought I'd see a more bogus "affidavit of probable cause"
than the one the IRS used in my case, but now I have. The "APC" in
Sherry's case is nothing but a list of how Sherry has SPOKEN HER
MIND, in different places and through different mediums (talks,
videos, etc.). How dare she?! Burn her!
The reason the feds really hate Sherry, and want her silenced and
destroyed at all costs (this has nothing to do with "law
enforcement," and everything to do with crushing dissent) is not
just that she is very vocal about her beliefs, but that she used to
be one of them. To have a former IRS Revenue Agent publicly saying
that the IRS is defrauding people is something the control freaks
in DC will not tolerate.
As stupid as American juries can be, the feds are going to have a
tough time with this one. Sherry being black, female, and a former
IRS agent really messes up the "tax protestor" stereotype the feds
love to use. I'm sure they will still do everything they can to
demonize her, but she is very well-spoken, and has been very
consistent and honest throughout. (Maybe they'll dress her up as a
witch, like in the Monty Python skit.)
The feds got a serious black eye when their attempt to destroy
another former fed--Joseph Banister--failed, with "not guilty"
verdicts on all counts. Personally, I think in some ways Sherry is
an even tougher target than Joe. But the fact that Sherry has to go
through this at all, just for having the decency to speak out
against what she sees as a huge injustice, is an abomination, and
shows the true nature of the American tyrants, and the thugs who
work for them (under the ridiculous label of "Justice Department").
So the question is, shall we abandon Sherry to the wolves, and
quietly watch from a safe distance to see how she does? Um, no
thanks. I would of course encourage you to send Sherry whatever
financial support you can, if nothing else to deprive the federal
fascists of the additional pleasure of financially penalizing her
for speaking out (which would harm her even if she is acquitted).
But I would also encourage you to support her with your EYES, by
keeping a close eye on what the feds are trying to do to her, and
Below is Sherry's message, which speaks for itself, so I'll shut up

This affidavit is just a listing of all of the places that I have

acts on my part, but it does state that they had my family under
surveillance, they went through our garbage and they retrieved our

offerings for those four years. Who is the criminal?
Anyway, the affidavit claims conspiracy, and three other
However, after all was said and done they came up with willful

attorney to help me. We will work to obtain the same outcome as
