Freedom to Fascism                                 documentary, notes by T Elden


I, Ted Elden, would like to help you.  Information could encourage you to help yourself.

Aaron Russo, award winning film director, began to make a documentary movie about his quest: "Do people pay personal income tax.?"

He asked people, "Have you ever seen a law that requires you to pay.  None have."

.           He then discovered

There is no law that requires the average American worker to pay an unapportioned tax on their labor.

Some say "I pay to avoid hassle" (thereby empowering I R  S  and the evil that they do.)

There are many reasons.  Income tax is not legal because it is direct tax else it would be apportioned as constitution demands.

He says it was not ratified by the states.  The Fed. Reserve Act (also unconstitutional) was soon attached to this illegal law,

over Christmas session when most Congressmen were home on vacation.

Aaron Russo has made many movies; Trading Places with Eddie Murphy, Gary Bussey ?

We the People Foundation offered but none claimed  $ 50,000 reward for any who could show a law that required that we pay personal income tax.

The whole thing is a fraud.  Highly trained IRS agents tell him that their is no law that requires this.

News article suggests that 57 million people don't file returns.

I have been studying and acting on this and many other great deceptions that are sourced in our government and known by our congressmen.

I will help you further, but you need to help yourself.

Knowledge is Power, it is neither hard to get nor to understand.  But you much get and consider the information.


I lead an organization with many people working on these issues.  We meet publicly 1st Sunday monthly at Top O Rock 2-5 pm

Many call in advance and just come meet with me privately.

You would be surprised at all the great deceptions under which most people live. 

The real truth is surprising, yet easily to find for those that want to control their own lives, rather than be bullied around by simple mis understandings.


Aug. 31, 2005, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled the government does not have to answer the America People's questions, even thought it is guaranteed in the First Amendment.

and the press did not report on this !


"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." - Goethe

100% of Personal Income Tax is absorbed by interest on the national debt, it does not serve the government, no buildings, roads, programs.  It just redistributes wealth to the interest to foreign bankers.


Government services; highways, schools, education, are funded by property taxes.

Tax on gas pay for highways.  Defense is supported by corporate income tax.

1040 requires that we tell government what monies we handled.

They are suppose to tell us what they do with the money


1999 Defense Dept. had 1.9 trillion of unaccounted expenses.

2000 $ 2.1 trillion, 2001 $ 2.3 trillion (Rumsfeld broadcast on national TV on 9/10 the day before 9/11) America public knows this, yet their inattention forgives the government this great deception.


Russo wondered if it our own government of which we should be afraid.

.           US Constitution says

Direct tax must be apportioned (divided equally amongst the people)

All indirect taxes must be the same (uniform) throughout all the states.

tax now does not meet either definition.

Congress started trying to institute an income tax in 1894, Supreme Court ruled Not Constitutional !

1916-23 Many Supreme Court cases shows 16th amended provides no new power of taxation.

Daniels Inoways office, of US Senate, letter say "Based on research... by the Congressional Research service, there is no provisions which ... require ... an individual to pay an income tax."

IRS does not have right to seize property, it is fraud.

Media does not report on Supreme Courts decisions in the people favor.


Supreme Court says your labor is your property.

government can tax on profits & gains, not labor and wages.


Show me that law that requires the tax, that they have the power to enforce, that they can seize property.

Yes, they have the IRS tax Code, but where is the law !


In the absence of the gold standard, here is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation.  There is no safe store of value …

… [Gold] stands as a protector of property rights.”

- Alan Greenspan, “”Gold and Economic Freedom”


]”I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money, are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies.”  Thomas Jefferson


Federal Reserve is a cartel of the international banks.  They are the ones running the show, not our government.  G. Edward Griffin

President Bush signed executive orders giving him sole authority to impose martial law, and suspend habeas corpus.  This gives him dictatorial power over the people, without any checks and balances.


Our government can jail you for life without charges, without a trial, and without a lawyer.,

[and of course – torture and wire tapping is also permitted]


Because of globalization the US must accept other nation’s laws.

Under the CAFTA treaty the sale of vitamins and supplements will be illegal.


Unelected people, the secret government, now controls nearly everything.

Existing Executive Orders permit them to control transportation, all communication (radio/ TV/ phone/ mail), form us into work brigades under their supervision.  All this if a state of emergency is declared, but none is defined.  Congress cannot review the action for 6 months.

Senate bill # 1873 allow the government to vaccinate you with untested vaccines against your will.

FDA says Americans have no right to know which food are genetically altered.

HR bill 1528 requires you to spy on your neighbors including wearing a wire.  Refusal would be punishable by a mandatory prison sentence of at least 2 years.

The government claims the power to seize all financial instruments; currency, gold, silver, and everything else if they deem an emergency exists.

- Treasury Dept. Letter Aug 12, 2005

There  re 190 ? countries in the world, with our government’s bases in most of them.


The Patriot Act permits: “Secret FBI and police searches of your home and office,

Secret wiretaps on your phone, computer, and / or Internet activity.

“Secret investigations of your bank records, credit cards and other financial records.

:”Secret investigations of your library and book activities.

“Secret examination of your medical, travel and business records.

“The freezing of funds and assets without prior notice or appeal.

“The creation of secret ‘watch lists” that ban those names from air and other travel.

“The constitution is just a goddam piece of paper.” George W. Bush Nov 2005

During the 1990s Pres. Clinton monitored millions of private phone calls placed by U.S. citizens.

He did this under a secret program names Echelon. [We have uncovered 100s of items like this – facts !]


The widespread use of wiretapping Americans during the Clinton administration proves this is practice was not started because of 9/11. but is standard procedure.


Your own government is using more force on its citizens than

Katrina. Home were owners armed to protect mansions.  Government took their weapons so they could not protect themselves from looters.


Government is setting up National ID car, establishing check points to control the population moving around freely.

This law, known as the “Real ID Act,” takes effect in May 2008

Anyone without the card would not be \permitted to board an airplane, Amtrak train, open a bank account, or enter a federal building. The bill mandates that all driver’s license contain “common readable technology.” A Radio frequency identification )RDFID) chip will be used. Chip size the size of a grain of sand or smaller.


Our government is setting up all the things that we say as the beginning of the Nazi regime.

WASHINGTON- A massive database that the government will use to monitor every purchase made by every American citizen is a necessary tool in the war on terror, the Pentagon said Wednesday. Quotes 15 Oct ‘06

Embedded IF chips are remotely monitored.  Reader devices are planned for every airport, dock, station.

They are moving to a cashless society, where in all your transactions are monitored against a number of your account.  To render you a non-citizen and take away all your right\s of commerce, they need only turn off that number from the system.


You were Private individual citizen with real money, backed by gold.

Now the Federal Reserve is building a cashless system based on a number, wherein they can track all your transactions and deny your ability to make any (or all) transition(s) at any time, any place. 


Orwellian, every transaction you make would potentially be reported back to the government.


“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead; And that no man might buy or sell save he had the mark.’ Revelations 13:16


We the people have all the power.  The government gets it’s power from us, not the other way around.

Yet, unless we stand up for our rights, they are fast disappearing !

FDA approved computer chip for humans. Microchip ID devices planted in our bodies.

Electronic voting, in Senate hearings, have been determined that they can swing the vote to any candidate undetected, by those that designed such systems.

Voting machine manufactures refuses to allow anyone to see the source code.

We shall have world government, whether we like it or not.  The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquer or consent. Paul Warburg, CFR, Council of Foreign Relations & architect of the Federal Reserve System.

Financial System is more controlling than even government.


Unelected private bankers control all world government. They have profited from every war, without concern for humanity.


War on Iraq is an act on the part of the Federal Reserve and their partner Bank of England to make Iraq subject to their control

as part of the New World Order. [Your tax dollars are accomplishing this !]


To establish the New World Order, US soldiers will have to die. - Arthur Schlesinger, CFR


Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policies. Henry Kessinger, CFR

The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress are irrelevant.

America’s domestic policy is being now being run by Aaron Greenspan and the Federal Reserve.

Foreign policy is being run by the International Monetary fund.

When President decides to go to war, he no longer needs a declaration of war from the Congress.

The new world order will be built … an end run on national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashion frontal assault.” CFR Journal 1974, p 558


The powers of financial capitalism had a far reaching aim. Nothing less than to create a world system of financial controls in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” Carroll Quigley, Tragedy & Hope


In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete.  All states will recognize a truly world government.  All these treaties, NAFTA, CAFTA ?, are truly nothing more than the governments of the world and the central banks working together to control trade. They are not free trade, but government controlled.  Destroying the American worker.  Thru these treaties, the world bankers are actually destroying the laws of the world.  The fact is that the relationships between the bankers, the government and the huge national corporations, is the reason that the government no longer enforces it’s immigration laws.  The bank want a one world government without borders and the American government is obeying them.  If the government was so worried about terrorism, why are they leaving the borders open, but at the same time, telling the American citizens they need an RFID chip.

 Stobe Talbot, Pres. Clinton’s Sec. of State Time Magazine, July 1999


The war on terrorism is a war on your freedom.


Osama bin Laden, cannot limit our rights to free speech, to assemble, but our own government is accomplishing that same purpose.


European community voted against the one nation, EU, but the private bankers continue to push for it to happen.  The money controls everything.


The bankers own the earth. Take it away form them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. 

However, take away from them the power to create money, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in .  But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slaver, let them continue to create money.”  - Sir Joseph Strange, Exec. Dir. At The Bank of England


We are grateful for the directors of Washington Post, the NY Times, Times Magazine, and other great publications whose director have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years.

It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected tot  the

Lights of publicity during those years.  But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.

The supa national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.

David Rockefeller, CFR, Private Banker, June ‘91


Fascism should be called corporatism, because it is the perfect merger of the corporation and the state.  Mussolini


Media controls the info that the average American gets to think something are good, others are bad.

Government is the most dangerous power on earth.

]Be willing to take part in nationwide boycotts, marches and strikes.

Force Congress to use [power…] and stop the theft of the American people’s labor and wealth.

Do not support and political candidate unless they sign an affidavit agreeing to close down the Federal Reserve…

Do not accept National ID cards, even if it’s your driver’s license.

Because the next step will be an implant in you.

Abolish computer voting in the state where you live.

Stop being good Democrats and Republicans.

Start being good Americans.

And when the media starts telling you the country will fall apart if you do not [cooperate]

Don’t be fooled


This is just the Federal reserve trying to save itself.
