and the U.S. Congress Officially Commit to Send IRS Tax and
Legal Experts to Appear on Capitol Hill. Public Hearing to be
Conducted by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and Rep. Henry Hyde to
Answer Citizens' Challenges of IRS Jurisdiction and Illegal
Enforcement of U.S. Tax Law.
D.C. -- We The People Foundation For Constitutional Education, Inc.
announce that the Department of Justice and the U.S. Congress have
committed, in writing, to appear with IRS representatives in a
recorded, public meeting to officially answer to charges challenging
the legal jurisdiction of the IRS and the enforcement of U.S. income
tax laws against U.S. citizens.
of Justice U.S. Assistant Attorney General Dan Bryant and
Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett (MD) signed the written agreement Friday
that commits the government to send their top tax and legal experts
to a two-day September hearing to be conducted on Capitol Hill.
These actions are in response to a proper petition for redress of
grievances brought by Robert Schulz, Chairman of the Foundation.
Schulz ended his 3-week hunger fast mid-afternoon today after having
secured official commitment from representatives of the U.S.
Government that his formal petition will be answered.
Schulz has been
in Washington since July 4th on a hunger fast until death, if
needed, to force the government to respond to his legal
Remonstrance, a petition for redress of grievances. These grievances
include challenges of IRS jurisdiction, routine and gross violations
of due process by the IRS, the refusal of the IRS to cite the
specific law that requires employers or employees to withhold taxes
and the fraudulent ratification of the 16th (Income Tax) Amendment.
DOJ's Bryant is
quoted, "The American people are entitled to answers. It is in
our nation's interest that we participate and answer these
ignored by the media and other government officials, Rep. Bartlett
has stood alone on the Hill (until recently) in public defense of
Schulz's absolute Constitutional Right to petition for redress and
be answered by the government. On Tuesday, Bartlett initiated a
formal Congressional Inquiry to the IRS demanding official
government responses for Schulz.
Dan Bryant agreed to Rep. Bartlett's requirements that the
"congressional briefing-like hearings" be conducted in
public and be recorded and broadcast live. The meetings will have
appropriate procedural controls and security. It is expected Rep.
Henry Hyde (IL), former Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee
will gavel the sessions.

they are required by both the 1st Amendment to the Constitution and
their oaths of office."

Justice headquarters. Bryant assured both Rep. Bartlett and Schulz
there is "virtually no chance of being overridden on this
matter." Bartlett promised Schulz, "I assure you. The IRS
will be there at those meetings."

have looked in their eyes. I am satisfied they are men of honor. We
have cemented our agreement with a handshake. The fast ends today.

'simplification' of the 9,500-page tax code, the truth is about to
be revealed. The Sovereign Citizens have exercised their Right to
It is no
coincidence that President Bush revealed in this week's New York
Times that the government has begun to publicly discuss alternative
tax systems, including disposal of the entire tax code. The internet
and talk radio have facilitated detailed research, documentation and
discussion of these charges across the nation.
If our income
tax system is publicly confirmed to be without force of law upon the
People, and is truly as 'voluntary' as the IRS so often advertises,
it is highly likely that the government may move quickly to
implement a replacement tax such as a national sales tax. The People
must remain vigilant that one illegal tax is not replaced by
powers granted to the federal government by our Constitution are
explicit, limited and must be complied with. Since 1787, the
mechanism for an orderly and peaceful transition to a legal tax
system has resided in Article 1 Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution.
This is a states' Rights issue.
The day that
our government has shunned has arrived. The Sovereign Citizens have
formally demanded and exercised their Rights. We The People have
