Costly IRS Mandate Slipped into Health Bill

Posted by Chris Edwards

Most people know about the individual mandate in the new health care bill, but the bill contained another mandate that could be far more costly.

A few wording changes to the tax code’s section 6041 regarding 1099 reporting were slipped into the 2000-page health legislation. The changes will force millions of businesses to issue hundreds of millions, perhaps billions, of additional IRS Form 1099s every year. It appears to be a costly, anti-business nightmare.

Under current law, businesses are required to issue 1099s in a limited set of situations, such as when paying outside consultants. The health care bill includes a vast expansion in this information reporting requirement in an attempt to raise revenue for an increasingly rapacious Congress.

In a recent summary, tax information firm RIA notes the types of transactions covered by the new 1099 rules:

The 2010 Health Care Act adds “amounts in consideration for property” (Code Sec. 6041(a) as amended by 2010 Health Care Act §9006(b)(1)) and “gross proceeds” (Code Sec. 6041(a) as amended by 2010 Health Care Act §9006(b)(2)) to the pre-2010 Health Care Act categories of payments for which an information return to IRS will be required if the $600 aggregate payment threshold is met in a tax year for any one payee. Thus, Congress says that for payments made after 2011, the term “payments” includes gross proceeds paid in consideration for property or services.

Basically, businesses will have to issue 1099s whenever they do more than $600 of business with another entity in a year. For the $14 trillion U.S. economy, that’s a hell of a lot of 1099s. When a business buys a $1,000 used car, it will have to gather information on the seller and mail 1099s to the seller and the IRS. When a small shop owner pays her rent, she will have to send a 1099 to the landlord and IRS. Recipients of the vast flood of these forms will have to match them with existing accounting records. There will be huge numbers of errors and mismatches, which will probably generate many costly battles with the IRS. FULL STORY

[Thanks to Ken Adachi of for posting this important video clip.]
Some of the points Mr. Steele made that concur with Ben Fulford’s update on Rense:
  • Federal government no longer represents “We the People” 
  • The ‘corrupt ones’ have bought every form of government fromschoolhouse, to statehouse, to white house [They are all corporations.]
  • Central banking is an evil cancer – that is manipulating and screwing us all
  • Federal government is bankrupt and is broken in every way
  • Localized resilience networks are solution 
  • Media not doing their job
  • Politics today is completely dirty (corrupt)
  • Don’t waste your time on the federal government – it’s going away

Is A New US Dollar On The Fed's Agenda???

This morning my husband went to a local Co-America Bank and over heard the Bank manager speaking with an elderly gentleman. The elderly man asked the manager "When the NEW DOLLAR" was going to be released?" The Manager told the elderly man that he has to order them.

Not having heard anything about a 'NEW DOLLAR' I did a little research. Here's the only things I could find.

Carbon Currency: A New Beginning for Technocracy?

Critics who think that the U.S. dollar will be replaced by some new global currency are perhaps thinking too small

On the world horizon looms a new global currency that could replace all paper currencies and the economic system upon which they are based.

The new currency, simply called Carbon Currency, is designed to support a revolutionary new economic system based on energy (production, and consumption), instead of price. Our current price-based economic system and its related currencies that have supported capitalism, socialism, fascism and communism, is being herded to the slaughterhouse in order to make way for a new carbon-based world.

Spain - Credit downgrade: Standard & Poors cuts credit ...

While the U. S. Media focuses on Tea Party Rallies and other frivolous things, the Global Financial Crisis has begun. You will see the domino's falling until it hits the U.S.

Have a look at why Greece is falling and why we need a Ron Paul candidate in every seat.

The Greek Tragedy of My 20-Year Love Affair That’s Turning Into a Nightmare

This week, as Greece woke up to the reality that it was effectively a bankrupt nation, I could see many reasons.

Civil unrest: Protesters clash with riot police over Greek ‘austerity measures’

Here’s a snapshot of everyday life in a nation on the brink of civil catastrophe.

Before I set out for work on my motorbike yesterday morning, I first had to plan a route that would avoid the latest demonstration and the inevitable tear-gas that would accompany it.

As I passed the debris of the previous night’s riots, I heard the police helicopters buzzing overhead and tried to avoid eye contact with the nervous policemen on almost every street corner, fingering their carbines.

The vibrant but essentially law-abiding city of Athens has become a tense and slightly threatening place to live. It’s all happening because of the Greek economy, which this week collapsed even further as global credit agencies downgraded the rating of Greek government bonds to ‘junk’ status.

But in truth, the rot set in long ago. For decades, Greece has been living a lie. To say the nation has been living beyond its means is the understatement of the century. We have been indulging in an orgy of over- spending and over-borrowing beyond the wildest imagination.

Let me introduce you to my oldest friend, John, the man I went to school with in Britain and the man who first persuaded me to try for a job in Athens. He was already living here. In the years since then, he has become as Greek as the Elgin Marbles. He has a Greek wife, Greek children and a deep love of the country he thinks of as his own.

But today he is desperately looking for a job back in Britain. And that’s because five years ago he managed to do something we all hankered after: he got a job with the state orchestra.

The important part of that sentence is the word ‘state’. It’s not a very good orchestra, but when you work for it you are on the state’s payroll, and that’s the gravy train that just about everyone in Greece wanted to board. It meant a job for life. The pension was eye-watering by British standards and so were the benefits.

Try this for size: a full year’s maternity leave; a year’s sabbatical if it took your fancy; and no matter how badly you played your music, you were utterly secure in the knowledge that you would never be sacked. These rules applied to every single state job in the land. FULL STORY

Special Deals Yield Far Fewer Jobs Than Projected In Michigan

By TOM GANTERT | April 30, 2010

About nine months before an Auditor General's report questioned the accuracy of job projections in tax incentives handed to companies by the state, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy did its own study highlighting the problem.

On Aug. 31, 2009, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's Michael LaFaive and James Hohman reviewed data from 219 credits from 1995 to 2004 involving the Michigan Economic Growth Authority.

The MEGA agreements are tax incentives designed to induce businesses to locate in Michigan. In return for the tax incentives, the businesses pledge to create new jobs.

The Mackinac Center found company projections of jobs seldom matched the real-life jobs created. In fact, their investigation of MEGA deals found that of the 61,043 jobs projected in news releases, companies only created 17,971 jobs. The Mackinac Center study states that for every 1,000 jobs companies projected they would create, about 294 jobs were actually created, on average — about 29 percent.

That report was vindicated by the Auditor General report that was released April 23. The report looked at company projections from 2005 through 2007 and concluded that about 28 percent of projected jobs came to fruition.

The Auditor General report stated 184,951 new jobs were projected while 52,286 were actually created.

"It confirms the fears we had," Hohman said. "The fear was they weren't really paying attention and that the jobs weren't real and the state was still giving out credits." FULL STORY

Amway to close West Michigan plant, cut 100 jobs from local work force

By Chris Knape | The Grand Rapids Press
April 29, 2010, 10:50AM

Update: Amway says job cuts, Ada warehouse closing is necessary to remain strong West Michigan employer

ADA -- Amway this morning announced it will close a West Michigan plant, shift production of some products to Europe and Asia and trim about 100 jobs from its local work force as part of a "strategic adjustment" process that reflects where it does most of its sales.

The $8.9 billion Ada-based direct sales company also said it will shift about 50 jobs into its Ada headquarters as it ends production at a plant in Lakeview, Calif., and eliminates 150 positions there.

"More than 80 percent of our customers buy our products outside the United States, and Amway needs to update its supply chain to reflect that," Amway chairman Steve Van Andel said in a press release. "As part of our long-term strategy, we are moving some production closer to customers to cut supply times and significantly reduce shipping-related costs. Some of these steps are difficult, but they will help us drive long-term growth and sustain existing jobs in all our markets." FULL STORY

A Meditation on the Tea Party Movement

By Charles Hugh Smith

The Tea Party movement is neither fully formed nor monolithic. Perhaps there is more going on here than is generally credited.

I have yet to read an account of the Tea Party movement which makes any sort of comprehensive sense. What passes for “commentary” on the subject is mostly ideologically-driven spin from the “left” or “right,” both of which see the movement as a handy rhetorical device they can mock or co-opt to make their same old tired “talking points.”

My own sense is that a coherent account of the Tea Party movement must be far more nuanced and historically informed. The standard-issue pundit/commentator’s ignorance of American history is so abysmal that it is little wonder that commentary on the movement is so threadbare. FULL STORY

Special Report: Rapid growth of militias feeds off politics

But the vast majority seem to be "constitutional" militias, fans of low taxes and small government -- values similar to those of many conservatives and the Tea Party movement.

They also see the possession of firearms as not only a right protected by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution but a patriotic duty, a symbol of the citizen's equal standing with the government.

At the heart of the movement is a fierce allegiance to the U.S. Constitution and a belief that its rights and freedoms are threatened by the government.

One leading light is Robert Schulz, founder and chairman of We The People Foundation, a non-profit that organized two national gatherings last year. The meetings popularized a check list of alleged constitutional violations cited by elements of the conservative Tea Party movement and militias, according to "Midwifing the Militias", a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit which tracks hate groups.

Such violations included undeclared foreign wars, gifting and lending money and credit to private corporations, unconstitutional tax levying and unenforced immigration laws.

"What we have is government ignoring the Constitution," Schulz told Reuters in interview. FULL STORY

Coincidence? Graham Withdraws Support For Dem Legislation A Week After Blackmail Charge

Lindsey Graham has withdrawn his support for both the Democrat’s pro-amnesty immigration bill and cap and trade legislation just a week after ALIPAC Chairman Gheen gave a speech in which he demanded that Graham come clean on the fact that he is being blackmailed over his homosexuality.

Graham has staunchly pushed Democratic legislation that is completely at odds with the wishes of his South Carolina constituency, including cap and trade and immigration reform, while also displaying open hostility towards the Tea Party movement at several public events.

“When you have a U.S. Senator from such a conservative state like South Carolina working hand in hand with Obama and New York liberals like Senator Chuck Schumer to pass an Amnesty bill for illegal aliens, there is something very wrong,” Gheen told a Tea Party crowd last week. “After today’s national broadcasts, the American public will know what the DC insiders know and that was my goal.” FULL STORY

Greek Debt Rating Cut to 'Junk' Status

FRANKFURT — Greece’s credit rating was lowered to junk status Tuesday by a leading credit agency, a decision that rocked financial markets and deepened fears that a debt crisis in Europe could spiral out of control.

The ratings agency, Standard & Poor’s, downgraded Greece’s long-term and short-term debt to non-investment status and cautioned that investors who bought Greek bonds faced dwindling odds of getting their money back if Greece defaulted or went through a debt restructuring. The move came shortly after S.&P. reduced Portugal’s credit rating and warned that more downgrades were possible. FULL STORY

White House to Arizona "Your Messing Everything Up!"

Wow. Maybe we should all move to Arizona. It seems that at least the people they elect listen to the voters. So what does that say about the rest of us? Well, I think that Chris Hansen explained that best last night on his new show. "What Were You Thinking?"

You've seen him in action on the Vegas Strip. You've seen him confronting crooked lottery clerks. But this time, it's no crime: Get ready for something totally different from Dateline's Chris Hansen. It's an all-new reality show, called "What a Pain!" -- and it's totally fake! The idea is to test reality-wannabe contestants to see how far they'll go. Would they deliberately hurt someone else just because they're told do? Or, how about this: An enclosed room fills with smoke. Would people bolt for the door or sit tight for more?

You're going to be surprised at the shocking things people can be persuaded to do. Join Chris Hansen for "What Were You Thinking?"

I watched the show last night and guess what? Only one of the several people refused to shock another person with even a low voltage for giving a wrong answer. She got up and walked out.

That's Arizona, the one state that will not be manipulated by the Press, Federal Government, or any other pier pressure out there. The White House can scoff at them all they want, but Arizona is going to make it impossible for ANYONE to get on the ballot without showing proof that they are eligible to hold that official position. It has passed the state House and on it's way to the State Senate.

Arizona has just passed another law signed sealed and delivered to do what our Federal government has refused to do for the past 30 years.

Maybe Michigan voters will wake up and follow suit and start electing only those who will listen to us instead of government union employees who feed off the programs that support illegal immigration activities here. Or even go a step further and pass a law requiring the Secretary of State to demand proof of eligibility to get on the ballot.

Time will tell if Michiganders are just a bunch of manipulated fools or independent thinkers.

Army charges Lt. Col. Lakin

Officer demanding proof of eligibility accused of failing to report for duty

By Bob Unruh
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is the highest-ranking and first active-duty officer to refuse to obey orders based on President Obama's eligibility.
The U.S. Army has filed two charges against Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, who earlier posted a video inviting that action, over his refusal to follow orders until Barack Obama documents his eligibility to be commander-in-chief.

The documents, filed today and posted on the SafeguardOurConstitution website, which is generating support for the officer, allege violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice Articles 87 and 92.

Lakin publicly asked the president to document his eligibility and expressed a willingness to deploy with the 32nd Cavalry Regiment to Afghanistan. But he received no response from the White House.

The filing of charges may, however, be part of the still-unrevealed strategy Lakin and his legal counselors are pursuing. FULL STORY

Does CNN's Anderson Cooper Have A Problem?

For some reason, CNN's Anderson Cooper has a BIG problem with any State exercising it's right to pass legislation that would settle once and for all a candidates eligibility to hold an office. One would think that because of the controversy surrounding Obama, that this would settle the issue.

Below is a clip where Cooper has state Representative Cecil Ash from Arizona on his show. It's obvious that Cooper is out to make Ash, a Republican, look like a 'RACIST' who just doesn't want a black man for president. Oh My!!!

The truth is, every state should have in place legislation that makes every candidate provide the appropriate identification to show their eligible to hold what ever office they are applying for.

It's insane that in order to enroll a child in school, one must provide a birth certificate, get a drivers license, passport, you name it and we must show that we are who we say we are.

Are politicians exempt? Why doesn't Anderson Cooper invite Phil Berg, Esq., life long Democrat, on his show to discuss this. After all, Mr. Berg is the person who first discovered by reading Obama's book, 'Dreams of my father', that their MAY be a problem.

But no, that wouldn't allow CNN and Anderson Cooper the opportunity to attack Tea Party's and other groups who are standing up and holding government accountable to the oath they take to up hold the Constitution, would it. Well, watch the video clip and make up your own mind.

Southern Poverty Law Center - Meet the 'Patriots'

The Southern Poverty Law Center, the propaganda machine that hates the Constitution of the United States and the Free Republic for which it stands is at it again. It isn't enough that this is perhaps one of the most race bating, Marxist/Communist/Socialist organizations ever to gain such power in our Courts, but it continues to publish articles such as this to smear the good names of people using the usual sound bites and never telling the whole story.

Meet the 'Patriots'
In the last year and a half, militias and the larger antigovernment "Patriot" movement have exploded, accompanied by the rapid expansion of other sectors of the radical right. This spectacular growth (see timeline) is the result of several factors, including anger over major political, demographic and economic changes in America, along with the popularization of radical ideas and conspiracy theories by ostensibly mainstream politicians and media commentators.

Although the resurgence of the so-called Patriots — people who generally believe that the federal government is an evil entity that is engaged in a secret conspiracy to impose martial law, herd those who resist into concentration camps, and force the United States into a socialistic "New World Order" — also has been propelled by people who were key players in the first wave of the Patriot movement in the mid–1990s, there are also a large number of new players. What follows are profiles of 35 individuals at the heart of the resurgent movement: FULL STORY

Well, lets see if we can turn this around on them and tell the whole TURTH.

March 2010: A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll finds that 56% of Americans believe the federal government is "so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens." In 1995, just days after the Oklahoma City bombing, a USA Today poll found that 39% of Americans then agreed with the same statement.

Michigan Tax Rebel Sentenced to Prison

A Michigan tax rebel who has inspired people to file thousands of false returns has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.

Peter Hendrickson spoke eloquently but defiantly Monday as he blamed his conviction on lies by the government. Supporters in the courtroom applauded before they were scolded by U.S. Chief District Judge Gerald Rosen.

Hendrickson, an Oakland County resident, was convicted last fall of filing false forms over six years. He claims earnings are not wages and do not count as taxable income. Hendrickson is the author of a book on taxes called, "Cracking The Code."

Besides prison, the judge ordered him to pay the cost of prosecuting the case. The government says it has received thousands of taxreturns that follow Hendrickson's philosophy. FULL STORY

Red Beckman’s Jury Training

Springer update

Lindsey Springer here and offering you an update as to each of the cases currently pending between me and the attorneys of the United States.

In the case (06-156) where I did actually prevail against 11 agents of the Secretary of the Treasury for violating my constitutional rights the Tenth Circuit has not yet issued any orders on the interlocutory (piecemeal) appeal where Bivens Counsel admitted their clients stole the money from me but did not act out the theft until they departed from the home I then occupied. Their defense in that regard is they are only admitting they stole it so they can get to the issue of whether my alleging they stole the money made out a Bivens claim which is a claim against the Secretary's agents when they violate a taxpayer's constitutional rights. Obviously there is some debate on how to overturn Judge Frizzell's order against each of the 11 and in my favor without making it look like the Tenth Circuit sanctions agents of the Secretary taking property for its Agents own personal gain while under the disguise of acting on behalf of the Secretary. The bottom line is the money never was deposited into the Treasury account. It somehow got stuck in certain pockets or something like that. I have not had discovery on that case and it has now been over 4 years since I commenced action on the theft of my money.

The proof and lesson here is even if you could get a lower United States District Court Judge to rule against the Secretary of the Treasury's agents for violating constitutional rights the Judges at the Tenth Circuit simply divide on upholding that decision because to do so would be problematic for the Secretary since he already knows I know he has no delegates outside of the District of Columbia to act as his agents due to the undisputed fact all district directors and internal revenue districts since at least 2000 have been abolished. This may be the last you hear on this subject from me so I thought I would remind you about the case and give a short update. The case at the Tenth Circuit is 09-5088.

In the case where the attorneys who represent the 11 agents of the Secretary mentioned above sued me under the name of the United States of America to foreclose a lien to judgment and take the home I have occupied for 14 years, after I would not settle with those two attorneys my claims in that case, on March 3, 2010, United States' Northern Oklahoma District Court Judge Terence C. Kern issued an order that found summary judgment in favor of the Bivens Counsel and against me. This is the case where I was given by the Secretary of the Treasury a lien release "certified" and then one year later and after the Bivens Counsel learned of the reclease they contacted a local employee of the United States and had her sign her legal but fake name to a revocation of certificate of release and then had her issue a new lien in favor of the Secretary of the Treasury. In this case I argued that without a district director of an internal revenue district under 26 CFR 301.6325(f)(2) and Title 26 Section 6325(f)(2) the Secretary had no "delegate" outside D.C. to issue or override the Secretary of the Treasury's lien release. This is the case where numerous officials involved in this cover up of fraud (most did not know what they were particpating in) testified they no longer worked for district directors because that position had been abolished in 2000.

Anyway, without mentioning district director or internal revenue district and their relevance to the issuance of a revocation of certificate of lien release, Judge Kern simply ignored every issue under both the tax code and regulations that were clearly and unmistakably in my favor and against the claims of the Bivens Counsel and on March 16, 2010 ruled in their favor and ordered me to vacate the home no later than April 15, 2010. HMMMM!

I have appealed that decision and asked for a stay at both the district court and Tenth Circuit and both were denied without a single word uttered about district director or internal revenue district and the impact neither existing would have on the outcome of any appeal. I asked for a stay on April 15, 2010 with the Supreme Court and Justice Sotomayor (Justice assigned to Tenth Circuit) denied that initial application on April 16, 2010 without comment. I will send off today a request to the entire Court for the stay in that case. I have vacated my family from the home we lived in for 14 years while preparing to be sentenced.

Lastly, I am to be sentenced on April 21, 2010 by United States's Western Judicial District Judge Stephen P. Friot. I know, I know. I live in a county which has been listed in the Northern Judicial District and so you wonder why a Western District Judge is sentencing me? Well, that is the subject of a huge debate between me and currently 6 United States Judges. The case is docketed as 09-8701 in the Supreme Court. I know, I know. You ask what would they do? Well, I simply cannot ever allow the attorneys employed by the United States to ever say I consented to whatever because I did not object. I am a chief objector.

For those of you wondering about this case. All you need to do is read Title 28, Section 292(b) and you will see that a judge outside his or her commission district must be designated and assigned by the chief judge of a circuit court to a specific case for a specific period of time and there must be a public need and the assignment must be temporary. Judge Friot stated on January 28, 2010 and again on February 22, 2010 that it was Judge Eagan from the Northern District who assigned him and not Chief Judge Henry. Chief Judge Herny resigned on December 10, 2009 to begin on June 1, 2010. You are either for or against a United States of limited power.

If you are for limited power then you must be for strict interpretation of laws written by Congress. If you are for a United States that chooses to rule the world by fear and intimidation then you are for a liberal construction of laws written by Congress. What you have seen in my tenure is a person objecting to a liberal construction of certain laws and this case is no different. It is interesting that strick is better known as black and white and not grey ever.

Anyway, I have been pending since January 25, 2010 in the Supreme Court and they are scheduled for a second conference on April 23, 2010 just two days after Judge Friot is to impose sentence upon me.

In the case sentence is to be imposed, the attorneys for the United States are asking for 20 years because they say I counseled thousands to violate the internal revenue laws. They also say I misled many on the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 and 1995. The only way they can say this without smiling is if the Judges will say or do anything to avoid ruling on the merits of my claims against Secretary of the Treasury's non compliance with the PRA. It seems amazing to me that Congress can write a law that says "No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply" with a collection of information request form like Form 1040 and that a "complete defense" to claims otherwise subjecting a person to penalty could be raised, and yet everytime the specific words in these sections are raised, something insane or crazy occurrs in writing by the Attorneys or the Courts. Either the Court completely ignores it or as in my most recent case they said I raised difficult issues between the tax code and PRA but would not elaborate on what those difficult issues were. America deserves better. I deserve better.

If you wish to change America then you need to change Congress and elect a Congress that will send a strong message to the judges by impeaching the worst offenders and giving examples of what type of writings will not be tolerated anymore. The Paperwork Reduction Act is the best example of showing how the law can say one thing and the Judges will say something in total opposition to the words written by Congress. I realize there are many excellent Judges on the bench but it remains to be seen when they will start ruling in the Citizens favor and against the United States at the district court level when the law supports such conclusion. For now, they continue to rule against the Citizen and in favor of the United States no matter how defiant that appears to the public to be.

The Judges write criminal laws are to be strictly construed but then they liberally construe them in favor of the United States. It is upside down, backwards, or in reverse.

I have never advocated anyone not file a Form 1040 because of the Paperwork Reduction Act violations by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue did that all on his own in booklet after booklet after booklet. I merely publicly stated the Form 1040 does not comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act and this claim only relates to the Secretary's ability to deprive you of property by way of penalties. Not taxes. You will still owe taxes until you change the law because so long as Attorneys are allowed to write or ignore what Congress wrote we will never be able to rely upon a single word written by Congress that is in the people's favor.

Anyway, unless I am not remanded to custody of the United States Department of Justice (Bivens Counsel) at the conclusion of sentencing, this will be my final report to you. I have done what I can do and I have never nor will I ever give up hope in what I believe is right. My wife for now will monitor your emails and receive any gift or donation that comes in. Her name is Jeanie. If I am sorry for anything it is that I was unable to ever get the Court to rule on the merits of my PRA claims. You must know by now why they have chose not to make such a ruling. For those of you led, I will always be able to receive support through paypal at,, or through regular mail at 5147 S. Harvard, # 116, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74135

God save the 50 independent States of the United States of America first.

U.S. Lawyer Richard Fine Jailed, Denied Rights for Exposing Corruption

Cassandra Anderson
April 14, 2010
The U.S. Supreme Court will be holding a private conference hearing on Friday, April 23rd 2010, to determine whether to hold a full court hearing on corruption charges within the Los Angeles County government for illegally imprisoning attorney Richard Fine. A rally to acknowledge the U.S. Supreme Court hearing will be held at the L.A. Superior Court building at 8 am Tuesday April 20th, by supporters of Richard Fine’s release from illegal imprisonment. Mainstream media has avoided any mention of this epic corruption scandal, despite its significance, and now it is on its way to the the Supreme Court.
Richard Fine, who holds a PhD in international law and served as an anti-trust prosecutor at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C., has been in jail in the L.A. County Jail for over a year in solitary confinement. He never had a trial, there has been no conviction, nor any sentence to keep him there. Sheriff LeRoy Baca claims he does not know why Fine is in jail, yet he keeps him there and failed to answer Fine’s Writ of Habeas Corpus. Baca refused to allow a filmed interview with Fine until Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on behalf of Full Disclosure Network, and then, out of the blue, he “changed his mind” and granted a filmed interview with them!

Fine believes he is imprisoned because of political reasons:
1. Fine exposed L.A. Superior Court judges of taking illegal money from the County, in violation of the California State Constitution.
2. The County Supervisors were using public tax money to pay off the Superior Court judges.
3. The Superior Court Judges decided cases in favor of the County (Fine reports that since 2005 to present, only 3 people have won cases against the County as a result of the bribes).
4. The California State Legislature have given the judges and County Supervisors immunity from prosecution for their actions and misappropriation of taxpayer money.
5. The judges have tried to get Mr. Fine disbarred from the California State Bar as a result of the lawsuit he filed on behalf of the taxpayers who were denied “due process”.
6. Superior Court Judge David Yaffe (accused judge) failed to recuse himself and sent Fine to prison. He also failed to cite any precedent (denying Fine “due process”).
7. L.A. County Sheriff LeRoy Baca illegally imprisoned Fine, and Fine is in jail today.
8. Fine should have been released within 5 days, according to the law. FULL STORY

California lawlessness same as in Washington

The Law Offices of Richard I. Fine & Associates ( web site says he established the firm in 1974. His credentials include a Doctor of Law from the University of Chicago, a Ph.D in International Law from the London School of Economics, a Certificate from the Hague Academy of International Law, among his many other awards, including Lawyer of the Decades 1976 - 2006.

On April 9, Contra Costa Times writer Troy Anderson headlined, "Supreme Court to hear Fine case," quoting Brooklyn Law School Professor Jayne Ressler, an expert in "coercive confinement" saying:
"The fact the Supreme Court is involved in any way is a big deal. It certainly speaks volumes to the importance of this case, and it's quite intriguing."

The US Supreme Court will hear his case on April 23. It gets thousands of applications annually, but considers about 80 or 90 at most. His appeal cites the precedent of a Los Angeles newspaper reporter jailed in 1972, in contempt, for refusing to divulge sources relating to the Charles Manson case. After six weeks in confinement, the US Supreme Court ordered him released while his case was considered by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. "Lower courts later determined that lengthy confinements for contempt" are to punish in violation of "legal limits on punitive sentences for contempt." FULL STORY
