My main focus is typically how I can best help my readers. I do this by telling the truth; often uncomfortable truths: paper money is fraud, the government is poisoning you, but we can fix it with buying gold, taking iodine, etc. In the past, I’ve made big money simply doing this. But it’s no longer working. It’s far harder without owning the stocks.
Well, now I need to tell an even more uncomfortable truth:
I need your help.
In August, my website earned me about $300. I earned $999 in sales, and I had costs of $700 just to send out emails.
In September, my site has grossed $330 in sales so far. The amortized cost to send out the emails is 6/30 x $700 = $140, so the website has netted $190 so far this month.
I mention this for a few reasons.
First, I’ve had about 5 people hating on me for asking for money for stock picks. And I mean really hating on me. Swearing at me even. Like how dare I try to make money!?
Second, I’m obviously not even making minimum wage. It’s far below minimum wage.
I need help.
I’ve lost everything trying to help others by promoting the truth about money, and the truth about everything else.
Mark 10: 29“Truly I tell you,” said Jesus, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for My sake and for the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundredfold in the present age—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields, along with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life.…
I’ve even been accused of being being demon inspired to dare to preach to obey Jesus, to “believe it not” about Paul’s testimony, and to obey the commandments of Jesus.
I lost about $10 million in the crash in 2008. And I know my followers lost big, too.
I lost another few million bullion dealing, due to theft, and legal bills, and just lack of profitability and trying to hang on too long, until 2014. The personal betrayals around that were far more difficult for me emotionally.
I lost just under a million buying minting machines, losing about $850,000 on that. I failed to realize that the market manipulations in silver at the time creating potential profits from minting rounds were unsustainable, which, of course they would be unsustainable. And my machines never really all worked anyway.
I paid taxes in all the years except 2009, when I filed a tax loss, which was denied. But the IRS confiscated my home in 2011, while I was away in rehab. I’ve been sober ever since, nearly 8 years now.
And the IRS has targeted me, unfairly, throwing me into collections efforts since 2014, demanding far more in taxes than my net worth, and they refused all settlement offers. This was a third big loss on top of the market loss and betrayals.
To sum up a multi thousand page nightmare, the IRS denied my tax loss return of 2009, where I claimed I lost $800,000. Instead, they claimed, with no justification, just pure invention, that I made $4 million in my first year of bullion dealing, and they wanted taxes of $2 million. Their audit was done in bad faith, and undid a settlement offer into which I agreed to, while they were considering my tax loss. If they had accepted my tax loss, I would owe nothing, and would be due a refund.
Despite all my losses, 2009 was the only year I filed a tax loss so far.
The IRS looked at bank accounts that had about $10 million of transactions, and just wildly guessed that I made about a profit of $4 million, with zero costs of doing business. In addition, they took the $950,000 that I spent on founding the mint, and deemed that a gain, instead of a loss, with no explanation. They even visited the mint to see that I really bought minting machines. Truth didn’t matter.
I wrote letters, demanding to know how they arrived at their numbers; because they not only showed no reasoning, they showed no words on the papers they sent me. How do you refute a conclusion of theirs that has no words? How do you negotiate when they fail to respond?
So, I appealed the IRS’s determinations by suing them in tax court. It took me 2 years of waiting for a court date. Court trial was in spring of 2016.
I had fallen into a pattern of suicidal thoughts by Feb. 2016 that I could not shake. But my first drop of iodine in Feb. 2016, a few months before court, was a miracle that suddenly ended all suicidal thoughts. I write about that date in my iodine note: https://revealingfraud.com/2019/06/health/why-im-taking-iodine/
I was super nervous in tax court, of course. But I was feeling near superhuman mentally all of a sudden from the iodine. By then, I had lost 2 years of income, being under collections efforts for 2 years.
Court was fun. I got the IRS auditor to admit that his audit was completely inappropriate to use for an audit, and that it was only a preliminary assessment and should not have been used for an audit. He admitted he never spoke to me, nor to my managers, nor my lawyer, nor my accountant, and that he had no idea what the businesses sold, nor who owned the businesses. Shocked at the admissions, I asked him how often that happens (and you are never supposed to ask a question you don’t know the answer to, as he could have said “we do that all the time”), the IRS lawyer objected to my question, the judge overruled, saying “I want to hear this”. He replied, “never”.
The judge said, “We obviously can’t use the IRS numbers”. I thought that meant that I had won.
I’ve still not gotten a ruling from the tax judge. I was under the impression that I would have gotten a ruling in January 2017 at the latest, or “any month” thereafter.
I believe the IRS targeted me because I offered $100,000 if anyone could prove that Obama was qualified to be President under the “natural born” clause of the Constitution. Or, the IRS may have targeted me because I was an original Ron Paul supporter. Or maybe both. Or maybe I was targeted simply for being a bullion dealer who founded a mint. Or maybe they didn’t like some other article in my newsletter.
How can I know? They never tell you why.
So, I stopped writing a newsletter. Why take the risk? And why bother if I can’t own stock?
In the meantime, for 6 years now, I’ve not been able to own stock. Or property. Or businesses.
That explains why I “disappeared”. And since I could not focus on wealth, I focused on personal health, and I have learned so much. And for some reason, I just can’t make money in that field. Not sure why.
I’ve never tried to raise money for attorney costs. In fact, it was probably better that I went to tax court without an attorney. Because lawyers cost everything, and are barely competent anyway. I know my trial went very well!
I’ve never raised too much of a stink about my situation. I’ve tried to bear it the best that I could. I merely posted my final post court briefs to facebook.
I posted them here, backdated, which effectively burried them.
You can also search up my case at the tax court, search by docket number: 023155-14
You can see that my case is open. You can find the date of court trial on page 2.
I don’t need tax advice. I don’t need arguments that have been ruled frivolous by tax court. It’s 3 years too late for arguments anyway. I don’t need advice to flee to another nation. I can’t afford that after waiting nearly 6 years.
My options are:
- Offer in compromise. To do that, I have to drop my case. And The IRS has refused all offers to settle.
- Declare bankruptcy. To do that, I have to drop my case, and admit that I owe them $2.7 million, which they could decide to try to collect at any time. That is a horrible option.
- Continue to wait to see the outcome of my lawsuit, where I sued the IRS in tax court for $8 million in personal damages, plus, and this is the best, I sued the IRS for punative damages so extreme, it could do away with the IRS completely.
I don’t think there are many cases that showcase IRS abuse as clearly as was seen by the judge in my case.
I think it would be selfish and foolish of me to withdraw my case, which presents an opportunity to either do away with the IRS, or at least, change the rule where we are subject to IRS confiscations and held guilty until we prove ourselves innocent.
I need money. Because I’ve run out.
I’m in the process of looking for work, where I may well have my wages garnished.
I’m in the process of looking for a very small apartment.
If writing a newsletter costs me more than I earn in a month, and it’s close, then you will probably never hear from me again. I simply can’t afford a newsletter if it loses more than it earns.
I don’t have the money for rent next month.
I never wanted to ask for money. I wanted to earn it. But I’m not earning it.
Please send me donations!
While I send emails out to 46,000, the open rate is about 5%, or 2300. The click through rate is about 300 to 1000 web page views. Fewer read to the end.
So, I might need like $1000 donations from the 2-3 people out there who actually care and can afford it, and a few more smaller donations.
While the IRS has drained my bank accounts to zero, multiple times, they have never confiscated money from my paypal account.
