SPECIAL ACTIVITIES EDITION
We are on the beach and now it's time to start enlarging our
beachhead by adding some new activities. As expected, the recent acquittal
in Tom Cryer's case has gone unreported, so we have to spread the news.
Keep those letters going out every two weeks and don't forget
emailing. But now you can include the Not Guilty verdict in your letters
as proof that we are on the right track because Tom's message to the jury
was exactly what our message is to the world. There is no law making the
average American liable for any income tax; our personal earnings are not
profit, i.e., income; and our fundamental, God-given, constitutionally
protected right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is beyond

have to print and send them for them. Just one household a week!
TO BE POSTED FOR FREE DOWNLOAD
TA will be posting the transcript of Tom Cryer's trial on the web
site for you and your neighbors and friends to download and read for free.
There's only one hitch: We don't have the $1600 to pay for it, yet.
But... T-Trooper Bob Gregory gave us a great idea by
suggesting that we offer the "notorious notebook" as a gift for
contributions to pay for the transcript.
For those who missed Larry and Tom's RBN programs or haven't heard
about this little twist in the trial, it happened after Tom finished laying
the law out clear as a bell and wringing wet with the truth. The judge
noted that Tom had a three-ring binder containing all of the authorities
boiled down to raw, uncut, unavoidable law-his trial notes-sitting in front
of him. The judge demanded that he be shown the notebook and declared that
Tom's materials were "discoverable" material. The only problem, of course,
is that they were his work product, not discoverable, and the government
had not made a motion for discovery.
The judge called the prosecutor up front and all but directed him
to move for reciprocal discovery and ordered Tom and Larry to turn the
notebook over to the government so it could review Tom's trial notes
overnight. Larry, knowing that the notes could do nothing but demoralize
the government, quickly agreed to do so and the notebook AND Tom's outline
of his testimony (including traps reserved for the government's cross
examination) were handed over.
The effect on the prosecution the next morning was apparent. Tom
had traps set for every point that the government intended to cross him on,
but by getting the list of traps in advance the government did not venture
into any of those areas it was counting on "hitting" him with. The cross
examination, which was expected to take at least an hour or two, lasted no
more than fifteen minutes and the prosecution was unable to lay a glove on
Now, thanks to Bob's idea, in order to raise the money to buy the
transcript so we can all have it to read, free of charge, we are offering a
free CD for each $50 contribution toward the cost of the transcript. The
CD will contain the entire contents of Tom's "notorious notebook", his
testimony outline and his "templates" showing the scope of regulatory
authority, taxing authority and the income tax (all matching up
perfectly). If you would like a copy of the "notorious notebook", help us
pay for the transcript and we'll send you one. Be sure to enter
"transcript cost" in the "for" line for paypal contributions or make a
notation, "transcript" if you contribute by snail mail (address on the web
Note: TA is a non-profit corporation. It is not in the tax
honesty "business" and will be posting quarterly statements on its web site
showing you exactly what has been contributed and where every penny was
Many of the following additional activities you can do are from T-Troopers
just like you. If you have an idea that is working on getting
past the public's 'belief resistors' get it to us so we can let everyone
Public discussion is the embryo of public opinion. The
Shreveport Times article produced over sixty comments on the paper's web
site in only a few hours. D. C. Wornock and Anson Chi both posted the news
of Tom's acquittal on blog sites and the response was fast and vigorous,
and FAVORABLE. Give them something to talk about.
There are literally thousands of blog spots on the net and each
of us knows a number of them. Copy and paste the following into as many
blog posts as you can and step back and watch the crowd gather around it:
Tom Cryer, a Shreveport, LA, trial attorney who has refused to file tax
returns for years was recently acquitted of evasion and willful failure to
file charges filed against him by the federal government. At the trial Tom
told the jury that there is no law making him liable for the income tax;
that his fees, personally earned by his own labor, were not "income" as
defined by the Supreme Court; and that if any income was derived from his
labor any such income is exempt (and excluded by the code and regulations)
because they are derived from a non-taxable activity, i.e., the exercise of
a God-given fundamental right, our Constitutionally protected right to earn
a living by any lawful occupation.
To learn more about these issues and Tom's case go to www.liefreezone.com
and www.truthattack.org. To see Tom's videos on the Truth about the income
tax laws, go to www.youtube.com and enter "Tom Cryer" in the search box.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES:
In an attempt to counter a flood of IRS disinformation and
propaganda targeted at the Shreveport area just before Tom's trial, Truth
Attack had some "yard" signs made saying "WHAT INCOME TAX?
TruthAttack.org". These few signs, posted at busy intersections by T-
Troopers Bobby Lane and Johnny Leger, produced a notable spike in the hits
on the TA web site. After Tom's trial those signs were given to the T-
Troopers who attended the trial and posted at various high volume sites all
the way back to Texas (Anson Chi and Gary Ryun), Arkansas (D. C. Wornock),
Mississippi (Bruce Ollie) and even as far away as Virginia (Joe Powers) and
other points south (Frank Rambin) [apologies to any we missed].
We are looking into having many more signs made and available at
our cost of replacement, but until funds allow you can have some signs made
at your local sign or banner shop. They don't have to be fancy, even card
stock signs, so long as they are easy to read at a distance and placed
where the greatest number of people will see them.
TRUTH ON WHEELS (DOUBLE FEATURE):
Truckers play a vital role in keeping our goods on the shelves,
whether to sell or to buy. They can also play an important role in
delivering the Truth to the unaware public.
TRUTH ON WHEELS I
A trucker who called in to Tom Cryer's radio program on RBN had a
fantastic idea. He had a large sign made and placed on the back of his
trailer. How many times do you think that sign gets read? How many places
does this rolling billboard go? The message can be as simple as the small
"yard" signs. A great idea for you truckers on the Truth Attack and for
any truckers any of us knows and can recruit into the war against the big
TRUTH ON WHEELS II
T-Trooper Gary Ryun in Childress, TX, has come up with another
way to get the Truth on the road and we're working to capitalize on his
idea. Gary makes up a Truth Package consisting of general info on the tax
honesty issues and goes to his area (or other, if he is travelling) truck
stop. Truckers are away from home and alone and generally welcome any
chance to chat with a friendly face.
Gary goes to the restaurant area of the truck stop and hands out
the printed material he prepared, inviting truckers to join him for a cup
of coffee if they would like to know more. He always gets four or five to
take him up on the invitation and explains how the IRS is stealing the
fruits of their most "sacred and inviolate property" (the Supreme Court),
their labor. Gary Appleseed, casting seeds of truth going to all parts of
the country. And Gary says it's actually fun meeting people from distant
places. Isn't this supposed to be "work"?
We are going to expand on this brilliant idea by posting audio
from Tom's videos on the web site in a new "DOWNLOADS" section so that Gary
and you can download the audio and burn it onto CD's to give these truckers
to listen to on the road and share with other truckers. Until we do,
though, you can print out a simple sheet listing out the key facts to hand
out and do as Gary is doing.
SIGNING OFF FOR TRUTH AND FREEDOM:
T-Trooper Pat Fale in Idaho has used email to spread the word
without having to mention a word. Pat has added the following to the
signature block that is attached to every email:
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of ALL
that threaten it! JOIN THE FIGHT!
This is a great idea! You can put your own message according to
your favorite flavor. Just make sure you include those two sites that
provide a basic understanding of the issues and show that the truth can
win. Once you've made that addition to your signature block everything you
email and every place that email is forwarded carries a 'bumper sticker'
telling people where to find the Truth.
SURFING THE AIRWAVES:
News of our recent victory in Tom's case received a mention and a
two minute cameo by Tom on the George Noory Coast to Coast talk radio
program that has an audience of millions across the country. George says
he wants to have Tom on the show to explain what happened and how he beat
the IRS, and that would give a great boost to TA.
So, to follow up and keep this issue fresh on their minds, email
Coast to Coast, using your own words, indicating that you would like to
hear the rest of the story that was touched on by Tom's very brief
appearance on the show. Let them know that there is a lot of interest in
the sham income tax and the IRS's theft by deception and that you want to
know what is going on. What did Tom do that kept his case from ending up
like Ed and Elaine Brown's case in New Hampshire?
You can write the show at
Again, use your own words, make
it personal to you, since identical notes will be disregarded as form
ALL OR ANY, CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON(S):
All of these ideas are terrific ways we can all get the Truth
into the arena of public discussion and make it an issue. Every major
change in the law and in the government has been accomplished ONLY after
the people have made a major issue of the matter.
So, even if you can add only one or two of the activities our T-Troopers
are coming up with, you will be making a big difference because
you are going to make people talk and when people have talked awhile they
may even start to think. Make them talk, make them think, and they will
recognize the Truth just like those twelve jurors knew the Truth when they
heard it from Tom at his trial.
NEWS FROM THE FRONT

TOM CRYER ACQUITTED
UNANIMOUS VERDICT: NOT GUILTY!!
In a time when good news is hard to come by, a truck load
was delivered this week when a unanimous NOT GUILTY verdict was
handed down by a jury following a hotly contested and hard fought
trial on Tom Cryer's case. Hallelujah!! Never again doubt the power
of prayer and hard work.
Nationally renowned tax defense attorney Larry Becraft was
lead counsel backed up by long-time tax honesty advocate attorney
George Harp. Larry turned in a flawless performance. Efforts by the
government to prevent any testimony and evidence about the law
resulted in rulings that prevented them from introducing any law or
IRS procedural rules and Tom was not permitted to read to the jury
from any of the key Supreme Court decisions. But those exclusions
and limitations were repeatedly overcome as Larry and Tom shifted
tactics and examination techniques to get the truth out for the jury
to hear. Having two seasoned trial lawyers presenting the truth from
both the podium and the witness box was a rare combination that was
nothing less than a thing of beauty and Larry's closing argument was
truly compelling, placing the perfect "cherry" on top of a
brilliantly conducted trial.
Tom Cryer's testimony was inspirational as he clearly laid out his
study of the law and the sequence of his conclusions, each leading to
the next. At one point the entire courtroom was spellbound as Tom
gave a passionate and heartfelt explanation of how his fundamental
rights, including his right to earn a living, were not from the
Constitution-not from the government-but from his Creator, and that
he received those rights with the first tiny breath of air he sucked
into his lungs in 1949.
Truth Troopers came to attend the trial from as far away as Virginia,
Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and elsewhere as well as
friends and associates of Tom's from Shreveport. These patriots, who
the government perceives as a bunch of wild-eyed radicals and
scofflaws, sat quietly and conducted themselves in a truly dignified
manner, lending credibility and substance to the message of the truth
and belying the government's portrayal of the community. We are
proud of each and every one of them.
For the play-by-play account of the trial you can tune in
to Larry Becraft's and Tom Cryer's Republic Broadcasting Network
programs this Saturday
(www.republicbroadcasting.org). Both Larry
and Tom will be on their two RBN programs and they will be taking
questions at 800-313-9443.
Larry Becraft's RBN show "airs" from 9-10 a.m. Central and Tom's from
2-4 p.m. Central. A lot of the trial went on behind the scenes and
you can be assured that there will be plenty of stories and tidbits
of what actually goes on that even those attending could not see or
hear. (Check the
archives link for these programs after their broadcast date.)
NOTE: Tom Cryer has asked us to remind everyone that his victory is
not a ticket to take on the beast single-handed. He warns that his
course of action is too risky for most and that fighting together,
protected by the First Amendment, is the best avenue for us to
pursue. He says the antidote for a lie is the Truth.
TOM IS STILL IN THE HOLE
WE NEED TO HELP HIM CLIMB OUT
Although Tom Cryer has won an amazing victory for the cause
of truth and the restoration of the rule of law, the battle was not
won without paying a steep price. His practice has been ruined and
he has incurred expenses he still has to meet. He is having to start
all over again and we can help. Please do what you can, no matter
how much or how little, by going to
You can donate to the cause on line through the paypal link
or you can send help to Tom's defense fund at the address provided.
TA FUNDS REQUEST REMINDER
(WE NEED TO STRIKE WHILE THE IRON IS STILL HOT)
Tom Cryer's victory proves that we can win. People WILL
listen and CAN recognize the Truth when they hear it. But spreading
that message is not free. Now is exactly the time to capitalize on
this sensational news.
The recent request for Twenty FRN's (about $1.54) has resulted in
roughly five percent of us sending in this badly needed help. All
Tom Cryer risked was everything he had, so can't we ALL risk twenty
"whatever those are?" Please (but as always, only if you can do so
without financial injury) chip in to help TA follow through on this
immense step forward. On line through the web site or send to Truth
