Schiff Criminal Tax Trial Fireworks Continue

Government's Case Sputtering

Schiff Facing Jail For Contempt

The criminal tax trial of Irwin Schiff entered its fourth week Monday with a cantankerous Schiff apparently making significant headway in repelling the government's prosecution witnesses who have testified thus far.

Schiff and his former co-workers, Cindy Neun and Larry Cohen, are defending against a plethora of criminal charges in Las Vegas stemming from consulting activities related to Schiff's best-selling book, "The Federal Mafia: How the Government Illegally Imposes and Unlawfully Collects Income Taxes".

The book, which contains a detailed analysis of the Internal Revenue Code and relevant Supreme Court decisions, was banned last year by a federal judge.

In the Federal Mafia, Schiff details how anyone can file a legitimate income tax return, claiming their income as "zero" because the Supreme Court has repeatedly, and consistently, defined the legal term "income" as meaning a "corporate profit or gain".

Schiff, who is arguably the leading expert and most troublesome public opponent of the 54,000 page Internal Revenue Code, has articulated in his speeches, written works and court filings that with regard to income taxes, the IRS has no legal jurisdiction over ordinary Americans and that there is no law actually imposing income taxes upon any individual. During the trial so far, no witness for the government has been able to cite the law actually imposing the liability for the tax.

Bob also thought that the Simkanin and Rose cases were "going well", which is particularly interesting in this case since he hasn't bothered to watch even a single day of the trial.

How come Bob isn't at the trial?

Yeah, where is Bob? He should be there as well as the members of congress that belong to The Liberty Committee (Ron Paul, et al), those leaders of CATO Institute, The Libertarian Party leaders, The Constitution Party leaders, DownsizeDC, The Lawmen (Chuck Conces), etc. etc.

All of these (and many more) supposedly support the position that the IRS needs to be abolished and that the INCOME tax is illegally enforced, and that Judges/Courts need be held accountable for fair trials, but NONE have been at this trial.

What's up with that?
