Segment 3 of the 10/13/05 conference call addresses some concerns related to financial privacy resulting from a distressing supreme court ruling.
Our government's ability to incarcerate innocent people is evidenced by the number of those being exonerated, most often through DNA evidence. These wrongful convictions evidence our judicial system's failure. Trial Logs is currently covering the government's prosecution of those who question the application of the income tax laws. It is our hope that this coverage will help us understand the failings of our justice system and help those struggling to comprehend this nation's income tax laws.

Irwin Schiff Trial Coverage by Freedom Law School (Segment 3 of 5)
It was brought out in segment 3 of the 10/13/05 conference call that citizens no longer have a right to financial privacy. According to the Supreme Court in United States v. Miller, anyone who uses a bank account is an open book to the government since you waived your right to privacy when you conducted any transactions with the bank.
The case is United States v. Miller (425 us 435)
(a) The subpoenaed materials were business records of the banks, not respondent's private papers. Pp. 440-441.
(b) There is no legitimate "expectation of privacy" in the contents of the original checks and deposit slips, since the checks are not confidential communications but negotiable instruments to be used in commercial transactions, and all the documents obtained contain only information voluntarily conveyed to the banks and exposed to their employees in the ordinary course of business. The Fourth Amendment does not prohibit the obtaining of information revealed to a third party and conveyed by him to Government authorities. The Act's recordkeeping requirements do not alter these considerations so as to create a protectable Fourth Amendment interest of a bank depositor in the bank's records of his account. Pp. 441-443.
(c) Issuance of a subpoena to a third party does not violate a defendant's rights, even if a criminal prosecution is contemplated at the time the subpoena is issued. California Bankers Assn. v. Shultz, 416 U.S. 21, 53. Pp. 444-445.
Page 425 U.S. 435, 436
(d) Access to bank records under the Act is to be controlled by "existing legal process." That does not mean that greater judicial scrutiny, equivalent to that required for a search warrant, is necessary when a subpoena is used to obtain a depositor's bank records. Pp. 445-446
Further infringements on financial privacy result from the absence of large currency denominations. At one time there were $500 and $1,000 bills in circulation. That is no longer the case. In 1969 they discontinued the $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 demonitations. Try buying a $30,000 car with $100 bills and you quickly see how difficult it is to function in our society with cash.
Worse yet, the Bank Secrecy Act (the astute will quickly gather that this is an anti privacy act) imposes reporting requirements. As a result, the government must be notified if any citizen attempts to conduct business with cash above a threshold. For example, the banks must report anyone who deposits or withdraws more than $10,000 in a given day.
Anyone attempting to purchase money orders or cashiers checks over $3,000 will run into difficulty as a result of the regulations that apply to those money instruments.
As a result, our finances are all open books to the government and we are denied financial privacy.
Are you enjoying your financial privacy and freedom today?

I'm passing this along because it addresses further misconduct. Objections to the changes must be made by October 17, 2005.
From: Larry Becraft - Attorney at Law - Huntsville, Alabama
As an exercise in making government work, I ask all of you to take a few
moments and go to:
The IRS is now proposing new regulations for an important activity to
which we can object. This site explains how to do so.
When this site first was posted, objections to these regs could be made
via direct links, but because of this site and the traffic it generated, IRS
changed things to make it harder to object over the Net. But please read
what is posted at the above and object: there are only 7 days left for
There is so much corruption going on right in front of everyone in the courtroom, but there is also hanky panky going on behind the scenes. Check this out. The IRS prosecutors were seen coming out of the judges chambers even though the judges secretary tried to secretively wave them around the back way. She was too late though. They were already busted walking out of the judges chambers by the defense attorneys and spectators. When the defense asked the judge about this, the judge said "yes there was ex parte communication, but there was no impropriety and that's all I'm saying about it." Can you believe this?!
The question is Why weren't they, Irwin Schiff and the defense, notified and included?
Irwin wants as many people as possible in court on Tuesday. He's going to be dropping some verbal bombs and needs lots of witnesses to be there for the fireworks. I know it's short notice but, if ever there was a time to go, Now is it! Irwin needs us to be there. PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Judge Dawson is denying certain witness to testify and attempting to limit Irwin's witnesses and wanting to know what they are going to be testifying to, before any witnesses go on the stand. Irwin is planning on calling Bob Schulz, Joe Banister, John Turner and more.
Shelley Waxman, former US attorney in Chicago, has known Irwin for15 yrs. In Shelley's book, "In the Teeth of the Wind" he speaks about the corruption in the judiciary/legal profession. Irwin might speak more about that tonight on the broadcast. To listen, the audio links come alive a minute or two before the broadcast at 7PM pacific 10PM eastern. Be sure to tune in. The link to the station is down toward the bottom of www.paynoincometax.com click on "LISTEN LIVE" or the direct link to the station is http://www.livingwordradio.com/
I hope we have a huge turn-out on Tuesday! Let's overflow the place!
And don't forget to check the audio blogs at www.triallogs.blogspot.com and
http://www.irwinschiff.blogspot.com/ (new photos) and nightly updates.
I've got to go and pack.
Have a great Monday off!

In segment one of Doug Kenline's interview with Irwin Schiff on October 8th, it is revealed that Judge Dawson held at least one secret (exparte') meeting with U.S. Attorneys in violation of law. That Judge Dawson was caught holding one meeting in violation of law, leads to the question of how many unlawful meetings have been held.
This sham trial has crossed the line of decency on all fronts.
Judge Dawson continues to abuse these defendants. He has repeatedly interfered with their cross examination of government witnesses and the presentation of their cases. If his courtroom antics and temperament weren't sufficient evidence of the extreme bias and misconduct confronting these defendants, this unlawful meeting with prosecutors should clearly establish that our government has no intention of affording these defendants a fair trial.
Add to that, the government's intimidation of the defendants' witnesses with Miranda warnings, and the stacking of the deck in this case becomes quite clear.
Judge Dawson and the prosecuting attorneys have exposed our justice system at its worst. I don't know how Americans believing in good and decency and our system of justice can tolerate another day of this disgraceful trial.
It's obvious that Judge Dawson is incapable of presiding over a fair trial. Someone needs to intervene if we are to preserve even a glimmer of faith in this country's justice system.
