In the previous post, I brought up the example of how Jesus Christ got to the heart of the motive of those who question legitimate authority, merely by posing one question that had two possible answers. His challengers tried to hide their true intentions by the evasive answer, We cannot tell. In this post, we are going to come down from the Kingdom of God higher court level to that earthly magistrate which has been granted the last word on this ball of dirt which we live. No, I am not talking about Death, or even Your Wife, but the Tax Judge.
Just as Jesus Christ, by a simple test, reveals the heart of the rebel against God, we discover that the highest tax court has also devised a test of willfulness to separate out the criminal tax violators from the rest of us, who are surrounded by a fog of confusion every April 15th.
Those who thoughtfully consider how to fairly apply tax laws are silenced by the reporting bias of the Christian Alternative Media
In 1992 Dwight W. Stone II, published in the Maryland Law Review, Volume 51, Issue 1, Article 8 a lengthy discussion titled, Cheek v. United States: Finally, a Precise Definition of the Willfulness Requirement in Federal Tax Crimes. The author, in his Introduction, says, “By reversing the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, which had upheld the trial court’s use of the objective reasonableness standard, the Court finally laid to rest a persistently troublesome problem of statutory construction: how to interpret the word “willfully” in the context of the tax crimes statutes.”
Stone later remarks, “In United States v. Bishop, the Court attempted to define willfulness more precisely when it held that the ‘bad purpose’ or ‘evil motive’ of Murdock referred to ‘a voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty’,” adding that Congress’s intent in including the willfulness requirement was to “construct penalties that separate the purposeful tax violator from the well-meaning, but easily confused, mass of taxpayers.”
What that meant is that the Court was interested in separating out those who violate tax codes, by motive. Thus when on February 15, 2005 Glen Stoll was issued a “complaint for permanent injunction and other equitable relief” in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle, his motives were being tested, and this makes for interesting reading.
Speaking of motives, one of the questions which arose in my mind when reading the above legal complaint, has to do with that unified group of radio hosts in the Alternative Media who came out as Champions for Kent Hovind. By virtue of their public excusing of the criminal acts involved, it would seem that they became spiritual partakers in the sins of not only Kent Hovind, but of his tax advisor, Glen Stoll, as well.
So just how far down does the Christian Alternative Media’s roots sink into the soil of the Sovereign Citizen Movement? I suppose the answer has to do with how low did Glenn Stoll go, when he created fraudulent law and tax scheme businesses to profit off of that vast consumer base of Christian Imposters who think gain is godliness.
The Trap is set for the Christian who gives his passive consent to a clichéd view of the world, making them Partakers of Other Men’s Sins
“Ahhh, so what?” you say, as you declare your allegiance to your favorite Christian Alternative Media star, “how does this affect me?” The answer is “a lot” if their constant use of rhetorical devices over the years has remolded you from being a salt of the earth, hard-working, family loving, tax paying Christian into a cliché driven, non-critical thinking adversary of legitimate governmental authority. Consider one example of the rhetoric of Dave Hodges of the Commonsense Show, who wrote on January 22, 2013, Are You A Sovereign Citizen?
The very first sentence of Dave Hodges’ article is his thesis statement: Government never stop(sp) trying to find ways to cast legitimate dissenters in a negative light. From there, Hodges equates “Government” with the globalists, and he proceeds to go from general examples to the specific case of a woman named Stacy Lynne, who Hodges claims had her son taken from her in retaliation for her anti-Agenda 21 efforts, in connection with the “ICLEI invasion of Fort Collins, Colorado”. I am not going to discuss the features of this case, except to observe that Hodges uses this example as applying to a person who was labeled as being a Sovereign Citizen. Dave Hodges said he was confused by that designation until he read a police magazine and realized that the new domestic terrorist is the sovereign citizen.
In this article Hodges creates a stark contrast between the evil intentioned corporate-controlled media who had “brought attention to a secretive and dangerous subculture which believes American laws don’t apply to them” and that of the alternative, and truthful media representing the “legitimate dissenters”, which would include the author and his circle of radio host friends. Throughout this article Dave Hodges uses emotionally charged clichés to label broad groups of individuals, and pits them against each other. The effect is to lead his readers down the path of the non-thinker who never can grasp the complex reality of how things are actually done by those who are charged with enforcing the laws of our land.
Dave Hodges concludes, “One would be wise to avoid being labeled with the new domestic terrorist term, sovereign citizen. Carried out to its extreme, as in the case of Stacy Lynne, a sovereign citizen is not something that something that one wants to be labeled as the term is bootstrapping all legitimate concerns about the government and virtually criminalizing dissent and protest.”
I agree that it is not wise to be part of the Sovereign Citizen Movement. However, if you go back over Dave Hodges first sentence and look at the progression of his arguments which ignore the factual basis of the sovereign citizen movement’s criminal actions which government authorities have been faced with, and you understand that Dave Hodges views legitimate and lawful government agents as nothing more than globalists, his final statement is deceptive. Dave Hodges represents that double minded logical reasoning that one can hide your true motives, if only you are known by the right labels. Thus one who shows by his actions that he is a sovereign citizen in principle, is advised to not allow anyone to label them as such.
Rather than “freeing America one enslaved mind at a time”, Dave Hodges serves as a change agent for replacing legitimate and lawful governmental authority with a State of Confusion. If you call yourself a Christian, and you spout a bunch of religious lingo, yet your de facto views are those of a sovereign citizen who willfully misuses legal language, you are at heart an anarchist.
Going back to the Dwight Stone article I quoted in the beginning, those tax court judges who debated the test which would prove specific intent defined the required evil motive as being the “voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty.” And here is where someone like Glen Stoll condemns himself for he claimed to be an expert in the law and then later said he was not an expert, yet his actions betrayed him when he set up the Arlington Law School. Stoll revealed his knowledge of tax law by creating illegal tax exemption schemes which circumvented the law. He also has created problems for himself in misusing the name of Jesus Christ as the authority by which his schemes were based, and by pushing the false pretense that anyone can claim to have a tax exempt Christian ministry.
Hear No Evil gets a Driver’s License from the Embassy of Heaven and was rumored to be hiding out in a school bus on Glen Stoll property in Alabama
Speaking of the State of Confusion, I discovered a driver’s license for our friend, Hear No Evil, which appears to have originated from that sovereign citizen group called the Embassy of Heaven. Glen Stoll is affiliated with this group and had in the past had his clients make use of the EOH’s issuance of false legal documents, to supplement his corporation sole and ministerial trust agreements.
According to the Embassy of Heaven, who claims to represent God’s Government on Earth, in the Spring of 1993, the Secret Service conducted a “secret investigation of the Embassy of Heaven Church. Two men, posing as potential members, visited the Church, purchased some of our materials, and chatted with Paul Revere, the pastor.”
Paul Revere, did your mother really name you that? Of course not! Apparently he did not like the birth name which his parents gave him which was Craig Douglas Fleshman. But as a so-called Christian pastor who is to proclaim the truth, he thought it best to do so using a false name. How this computer systems analyst living in Oregon got into issuing false driver’s licenses and the like, I have no idea.
Paul Revere Rides Once Again with The Sovereign Citizens Making Their Last Stand
It is interesting that more corporation soles had been issued in Washington and Nevada than in any of the other states. Pastor Paul Revere’s Washington state business associate Glen Stoll, and his former friends John and Candice Sinclair, who were defendants in a similar tax fraud lawsuit, are the most likely causes of that statistical anomaly. As for Nevada, the Bundy’s and their friends who also enjoy pondering sovereign citizen legal concepts, had moved their standoff from their home base to reappear in early 2016 in the forests of Oregon. One of those involved in that fiasco was Pete Santilli, an Alternative News Radio host who in 2015 heeded the call to defend that tax fraud Kent Hovind, forcing me to add him to my growing list of the Champions of Kent Hovind.
In the 1993 letter sent to the U. S. Secret Service from Pastor Paul Revere, he had declared, “We are authorized by Jesus Christ to maintain a system of records for the Kingdom of Heaven. We issue driving and vehicle documents as evidence of our authorization to use the Kingdom of Heaven Highways. We do not grant the state or federal governments permission to arrest our citizens, issue citations, seize vehicles or confiscate documents. If any state or federal agency has a complaint against one of our citizens, they need to file a complaint with our office and we will investigate, and if necessary, set a hearing.”
Uh huh….well, I believe I have tracked Hear No Evil through his fake driver’s license to Bay Minette, Alabama where it seems he was found sleeping in a shipping container or school bus on 7 acres which Glen Stoll had acquired. In an article by Craig Myers dated January 20, 2010, Judge ties controversial Baldwin County Landowners to Tax Evasion Scheme, it appears that the locals were somewhat startled to find that the person who failed to get a building permit for several small structures was none other than The Family Defense League of Edmonds, WA, the precursor of Glen Stoll’s Remedies At Law.
When contacted, Glen Stoll reassured the caller that the federal lawsuit wasn’t legitimate, and he hadn’t broken any laws. “There is not even the slightest hint of truth to any such accusation. I’ve never been convicted or formally accused of any such thing,” Stoll said in a telephone interview. There was never a hearing, a notice of hearing, no due process…An attorney stuck a piece of paper in front of a judge and got him to sign it. We do traditional church ministry–evangelism, worship, helping the poor and needy.”
Craig Myers, the author of this article explains this gap theory of Glen Stoll’s recollection of events by stating, “In June 2005, U. S. District Judge Ricardo S. Martinex issued a default judgment and permanent injunction, ordering Stoll to stop ‘any conduct that interferes with the administration and enforcement of the internal revenue laws’.” Glenn Stoll has finely honed the art of willful ignorance, that art of sophistry which Sovereign Citizens have mastered to the extent that even the best of Jewish Talmudic lawyers would be confounded.
Glenn Stoll is accused of being frozen in fear and hiding out, in order to avoid having to answer his clients who end up in jail.
On July 12, 2011, Paul John: Hansen published Glen Stoll Abandons Trust Responsibility, Kent Hovind, a June 29, 2011 open letter from Kent Hovend to Glen Stoll of Remedies At Law. As you may have observed, in the middle of Paul John Hansen’s name is a colon. This strange use of punctuation signifies, like a gang hand gesture, that certain concepts of the Sovereign Citizen Movement are in play. Like some sort of amulet of protection, Hansen also used the double parenthesis in this request, [[Send me your dealings (story) with Glen Stoll and I’ll expose his breach of contracts here.]]
In this open letter, Kent Hovind begins, “Dear Glen, It is with great sadness that I must write this letter. I have tried to call you and your secretary scores (hundreds?) of times but neither of you will answer the phone. Others who are concerned about our ministry have also tried to contact you and their letters, calls, emails and pleas go unanswered by you.”
“I cannot comprehend what you are thinking nor why you would behave this way. In 2002 our ministry was part of Faith Baptist fellowship under Pastor Richard Mooneyhan. He was retiring and the Church elected to dissolve. As founder of Creation Science Evangelism I was concerned with out ministry being “orphaned” and asked God to provide a “man of understanding” (Ezra 5-8) to show us how to be properly structured to please the Lord, be true to His Word and at the same time please the various government entities. The Bible commands us to, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” Rom. 12:18.”
“Within a few days I met you and a few of your associates while I was preaching in the Northwest-Oregon I believe. We talked for several hours and I felt you had the perfect combination of knowledge of the law, knowledge of the church/state issues and a love for the Lord, I felt my prayer had been answered. Shortly thereafter you talked with Pastor Mooneyhan, created ministry trusts and the transfer was made. Since I have a very limited understanding of these issues I was free to continue my calling of traveling and preaching on creation and left the legal issues to you as trustee….Then, when the IRS attacked our ministry in 2006 and I was taken to prison something changed. When the Assistant US Attorney J. D. Roy Atchison seized the church ministry bank account and operating fund of over $x0,000 you did nothing! It was like you were frozen with fear.”
Kent Hovind then mentions that his CSE ministry had paid Glen Stoll a great deal of money over the years for his work on setting up trusts and for his advice. He wanted Stoll to resign as trustee of the ministry trusts and to have Stoll’s advisory board appoint Paul Hansen as trustee. Towards the end of this letter, Hovind starts to get tough, saying, “If you do not resign, send Paul the paperwork needed, and step out of the picture I will be forced to take several more steps which will be most unpleasant. I remain your friend, and Christian brother, and pray you will do right. Kent Hovind”.
How much does one pay for a tax evasion scheme which will cost you penalties and prison time later?
So, uhhh, like how much money did these poorly constructed legal traps of Glen Stoll cost? According to the late Karl Bremmer of the Minnesota based website, RippleInStillwater.com, the “ministry” of You Can Run, But You Cannot Hide was promised they could buy what Stoll said were ” ‘established, exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable and assignable ministerial trusts’ that would allow them to operate as a ‘free church’ that would be invulnerable to state regulation and control. For a fee of $6,500, they were told, Stoll would create three trusts that would give them ‘absolute tax-exempt status,’ eliminate all federal tax return filing requirements, allow donations to the organization to be tax-deductible, and allow the organizations to retain control and enjoyment of all assets of the ministries. They would also be assigned a trustee to deal with all federal, state and legal systems.”
It is interesting that Glen Stoll’s clients and also the Federal Courts keep bringing up this matter of the ministerial trusts and corporations sole which he had sold in an expensive package. Because in an October 15, 2005 Affidavit, the Affiant Glen Stoll acknowledges with his own signature that his 5 page document is ‘true, correct and certain, materially complete, relevant and not misleading”, and he states in point #3, “We at Remedies at Law do not ‘assist customers in creating ministerial trusts’ and we never have. All we do along those lines is to provide an establishment service for Church organization. We do not advise anyone to stop paying their taxes, or to stop filing tax returns as required, and we never have.”
If that was the case, what did these clients pay $6500 for? If it wasn’t for those ministerial trusts/ corporation sole documents, was it for a windowless shipping container in which they could hide out from the IRS?
Additionally according to Stoll’s Affidavit, under points #29 and #30, “As an ecclesiastical and commercial non-union lawyer, I have the experience and ability to provide assistance of Counsel in the areas of civil and religious liberties, maintaining professional integrity, and preserving personal privacy and protection. Although I have spent considerable time studying law during my professional legal career, beginning with family law in 1988, I do not practice or advise in any area of secular statutory law. Consequently, it would not be correct to assume that I am an expert in tax laws.”
Glenn Stoll did not pass the bar exam in any state of the United States of America, and he was never licensed to practice law; thus his Arlington Law School was about as bogus in their promise that one could “obtain a law degree for the professional application and practice of law” as the Patriot Baptist University was when they gave Kent Hovind a certificate granting him a PHD so he could parade around as Dr. Dino. One cannot keep up with the ever changing lies of these martyrs of the Sovereign Citizens movement who pose as Christians.
The Greater Frauds, which called themselves Greater Ministries International, just happen to have ties to the Embassy of Heaven affiliated with Glen Stoll
Another group which also had ties to the Embassy of Heaven (affiliated with Glen Stoll), was Greater Ministries International, out of Tampa, Florida which ran a Ponzi scheme which bilked 18,000 persons out of a half a billion dollars (only $500 million, if you view life as a cup only half full). GMI was prosecuted by the Justice Department. One of the best background reports on GMI is published by the ADL, or the Anti- Defamation League website. While there are several groups such as the ADL and Rightwing Watch that I differ with when it comes to political and religious ideology, some of their research and investigative journalism is top-notch and cannot be ignored.
When a Bible believing Christian has to rely on atheists and other watch groups for the truthful reporting of the facts of so called Christian fraudulent schemes, something is definitely amiss in the world of the Truthtellers of the Christian Alternative News Media. The Champions for Kent Hovind do not have clean hands; for example, Dave Daubenmire, Steve Quayle, Douglas Hagmann, Joe Hagmann, V-The Guerrilla Economist, Chuck Baldwin, Pete Santilli, Alex Jones, Sheila Zilinksky, and who knows else that I will soon stumble across.
