Irwin Schiff Trial Coverage by Freedom Law School (Segment 1 of 3)

Wrong not welcome to communist America. Communism failed because there is a more evil form of government call US Government. We have the freedom to say what we want. What good is that when the news media and the government are one and they make sure that the truth or our voices are never heard? Let’s hope that as blogs become more and more fashionable and understood that the Jeanie gets out the bottle.

I bet none of you have actually read Cheek v. US...

"We thus hold that, in a case like this, a defendant's views about the validity of the tax statutes are irrelevant to the issue of willfulness, need not be heard by the jury, and if they are, an instruction to disregard them would be proper."

Instructions by the judge can be used as toilet paper as they should be in Dawson's case. The jury has the ultimate power and cannot be coersed if they don't want to be.

this quote is irrelevant. Irwin has not questioned the "validity of the tax statutes". in fact, Irwin has said on many occasions in connection with this trial, that there is nothing wrong with the tax statutes. he assumes that the tax statutes are valid. it is the enforcement which is unlawful.

David,
Please ask or advice Irwin
During Irwin’s summation to the jury he must point out that not only has he not found a law which compels the payment of income tax but several IRS agents (one of which testified today) admitted under oath during the trial that they did not find such a law either.
Also, can he get into evidence the fact a Nevada U.S. Senator (previously a Nevada U.S. congressman) ) admitted (on the radio or in print) that he asked the Congressional Library to find a law requiring the payment of income tax and the Congressional Library could not find such a law. Has Erwin subpoenaed that Senator?

The man's name is "Schiff", not "Shift".

Argh.
