Extra informative. I will circulate. Thanks.

There is no doubt that many other agencies (if not all) have learned a lot from the federals reserve's goon squad collection wing since 1913.

J Carlton, Calgary

Exactly John, The IRS is NOT part of our government which is why it is not under the purvue of our court system. It is owned and operated by the privately (foreign) owned Federal Reserve Bank which is the flag ship bank of the IMF. UnConstitutional doesn't even begin to describe it. It is government condoned extortion.
Condoned because the government itself is bought and paid for...time for change, and NOT the Obama kind.

A little out of date, considering the extra powers given to law enforcement and homeland security since 9/11...
Nothing taken away form the IRS, but now we have every other state, local, and federal law enforcement agency abusing the same set of powers.

Excellent statement by former Congressman Hansen. I posted it on Facebook.

Mann, Kalamazoo

MANTampa gets it, and I'll add this to his observations: The suffocating reality portrayed by Hansen's quote isn't the IRS' or even the guv's fault. They're simply doing what humans always do: pressing their advantage until they're STOPPED. If you're a truly honest citizen of the U.S. you can join me in taking the blame - whether you want to or not. It's OUR fault because we've allowed these unreasonable, unjustifiable, Constitutionally lawless seizures to become EVER INCREASINGLY 'legal' and binding, when they're patently not! And it's because we consistently elevate the worst kind of people, the serial thieves and murderers to our highest counsels - exactly the same diseased demographic that's absolutely certain it's innately superior to the rest of us. Clean your own house America, before it cleans you out - entirely. It's well on it's way to doing just that.

Because the IRS now has more tyrannical powers than congressman Hanson wrote years ago and, other despots exercise similar anti-law, unconstitutional, unjust, immoral, activities, why would anyone rate this with less five stars ?

Jimi Bigbear, Libertyville, IA

Read the horrible price Hansen paid for telling the truth and exposing the corruption/tyranny:

E Archer, NYC

Wow. And there you have it. They made Hansen pay a heavy price. Any ideas of just voting the IRS out of existence ain't gonna happen. States must throw the federal employees out, and send them packing to DC.

Mike, Norwalk

The latest 87,000 numerical increase to the demonic cesspool by deviate masochists and sadists is simply a start to increasing the police state's brutal destruction of a once perceived We The People with individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at the laws of nature and of nature's God. 

E Archer, NYC

My understanding is that the IRS is the collection agency for the Federal Reserve  a condition to using Federal Reserve Notes as currency, which is borrowed into circulation with interest due.

The IRS is not a federal agency any more than the Federal Reserve itself.  The IRS is incorporated in Puerto Rico, a federal territory (state).  The use of Federal Reserve Notes obligates the debtor to an exclusive jurisdiction that lays claim to any notes in possession and any property acquired by exchanging these notes.  

Because we are using IOUs to 'buy' property, we do not actually 'own' anything, we are merely trading equitable interest in the property.  The property still belongs to the real owners  the Fed.  That's why they can make rules on how much of these notes we can keep, because we have to pay rent on them.

The US was taken over a century ago, and ever since we have been subject to the tyranny of a statist theocracy ruled over by the globalist central banks and their 'governors.'  Until we address the corrupt money system, the noose will continue to tighten.

You were not taught this in school, and you will not find the truth anywhere in a school regulated by the government which accounts for nearly all public and private schools.

The truth must be sought it is not broadcasted.

 Is  he conveying of the Internal Revenue Service or the International Reject Surveillances? Never like to assume anything.
