AL ADASK BIO:

*I started studying law after my divorce in A.D. 1983. I’ve been involved in legal reform issues for 32 years.

* One thing led to another and I started publishing the “AntiShyster” news magazine in A.D. 1990.

*In A.D. 1992, I ran for the Texas Supreme Court (which is supposed to be illegal and received 201,000 votes).

*I continued to publish until A.D. 2002 when I was arrested without warrant and extradited without warrant based on two alleged felony counts of non-support of a child. The allegations were fraudulent. I was never actually charged with a crime. I was held for 344 days in a Level-5 Maximum Security Jail and then released.

*The IRS has come after me twice (A.D. 1991 & A.D. 2008). I stopped them both times with the grace of God and a couple of letters filled with relevant questions.

*The Dallas Bar Association came after me for Unauthorized Practice of Law back about A.D. 2000. I stopped them with the grace of God and an eleven-page letter filled with questions.

*In A.D. 2006, I was added as the last of seven defendants in case that started in A.D. 2001 and was based on the manufacture and distribution of a controlled substance (colloidal silver) and prosecuted by the Texas Attorney General. The first three defendants had spent $160,000 on one of Texas’ better law firms to defend them and achieved nothing. Each defendant (including me) was individually threatened with fines of $25,000/day ($9 million/year). I read the relevant law concerning the definitions of “drugs” in both the Texas and federal statutes and realized, with the grace of our Father YHWH ha Elohiym, that the drug laws only applied to animals.     I drafted a freedom of religion defense arguing that I cannot be an “animal” since I am a “man made in God’s image and given dominion over the animals” as per Genesis 1:26-28. The Texas AG, after investing six years and nearly $500,000 in pre-trial investigations and pre-trial hearings, dropped the case.

* I currently co-host two radio shows (American Independence Hour Tuesday nights from 8PM to 10PM Central; and, Financial Survival, Mon-Fri., 3PM to 4PM central.

Update on Discovery Hearing

Update on Discovery Hearing

The first actual hearing on discovery in the tax evasion case was held on Thursday, March 26, 2015. I spoke with an individual who attended the hearing, and here is what I gleaned from that conversation:

  • The hearing was mostly about discovery of the Master File Source Code, which the judge denied, at this stage of the proceedings;
  • The judge left the door open to additional specific discovery requests based on the discovery which the Defense has already received, including those items provided by the Government at the hearing;
  • The Government provided some additional items of discovery;
  • The Government offered to set up an appointment with the Defense to go over all the discovery which it has already provided, in order to help the Defense locate specific items which the Defense claims not to have received; and
  • A status hearing was scheduled for May 29, 2015.

Discovery Briefs

I have combined the last four discovery briefs of both the Government and the Defense into a single file, a total of 119 pages. The Government actually included a copy of some of the materials on this website in its latest brief with the court.

In its last brief, the Government included, as an Exhibit, a picture of this very website and informed the Court that many of us were watching this case very closely.

The Sixth Amendment reads, in part: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial.” In today’s electronic world, many people choose to follow such “public trials” via the Internet. I shall do my best to keep you informed of the proceedings in this trial, as it appears to be following a course of events which I have never seen before in any criminal tax prosecution.

The briefs are available directly from the court for electronic download if you have a PACER account. I think the rate is 10 cents per page.

Reply to IRS Claim: You Are Required to File Form 1040

IRS Claims that Most Americans

are required to file Form 1040.

Is that necessarily the truth?

In December 2013, an individual, we’ll call him Joe, received a CP59 Notice or Letter from the IRS asking him why he had not filed a tax return for the year 2012.

Joe sent an answer to the IRS Chief Counsel, copy to the local Revenue Officer. The Revenue Officer replied, stating, in relevant part, the following:

This letter is sent in response to your letter to me dated 12/31/2013 titled “request for Determination of Tax-Filing Status for the year 2012.” In the letter you state several times you would like to know if you are required to file a Form 1040 tax return for the year 2012 given that you earned in excess of $ __________ during that year. To answer your question, yes you are required to file a Form 1040 for the tax year 2012 and pay any tax due as a consequence of the earned income. If you do not file a return for this, or any other year where you had taxable income, IRS may file a return on your behalf.

Joe then sent a letter in response to the Revenue Officer. Here is what Joe said about the letter which he (Joe) sent back to the Revenue Officer:

I can’t tell you the kind of satisfaction I feel when mailing such a response to these criminal dolts.

It’s what I tried to do w/every past letter.

Unfortunately, I’m not any good at the power-game.

Here is what I wrote back to Joe:

1. You’re agreeing to follow his advice, with reasonable, court-required conditions;

2. You’re polite in your language, so as not to stoke his ire;

3. You do not employ any frivolous issues;

4. You return your answer timely;

5. You invite a reasonable reply from him;

6. You ask for information required by the Merrill Court;

7. You ask for information which he is required to produce;

8. yet will not be able to produce;

9. You have a very nice paper-trail for a judge and a jury, should it come to that, which will appear to them as reasonable;

10. Information which, if not produced now and will not be able to be produced at trial, will weigh powerfully in your favor;

11. All w/o arguing the law in any way, except, of course, for your good-faith attempt to comply with the Merrill Court’s admonition.

For any who receive a CP59 Notice/Letter from the IRS or a response, such as Joe received, you may want to look at the reply Joe sent to the Revenue Officer.

Response to Penalty for Filing Frivolous Tax Return

I have Prepared a sample response to IRS Letter 3176C (Proposed Frivolous Penalty) for filing a frivolous tax return or statement.

I have also included a sample Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request to the IRS Chief Counsel’s Office, seeking a list of items of “income not taxable by the Federal Government under the Constitution.” See Treas. Reg. § 1.612-6(b).
