Former INS official faces sentencing for “willful failure to file”
by Don Harkins
Prematurely retired Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) Inspector Gary Phillips, 66, is awaiting a February 25, 2000, sentencing in U.S. District Court in Seattle for failure to file a federal income tax return. According to Phillips the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has spent the last 12 years and an estimated $200,000 to finally convict him of what is tantamount to a misdemeanor.
We also heard from Pat Shannon, the investigative reporter, who was, himself acquitted after being charged for something that should have been protected by the 1st amendment in a "conspiracy to impede the activities of the IRS" case. He briefly discussed his own case and his very recent interview with Gary Phillips, the career INS officer, who earlier this year was convicted of willful failure to file income tax returns and fled the country before the sentencing date. If sentenced, Phillips would almost certainly have been put in a prison where there would be illegal aliens Phillips collared while on the job with the INS. What is even more interesting is that Phillips was tried AFTER a grand jury refused to indict him on the charges. Phillips relied, in part, on the content of THE LAW THAT NEVER WAS in dealing with the grand jury. However, the judge refused to allow 19 of the 21 witnesses Phillips requested, including Benson and including Robert Manning the IRS agent who could not identify any law or regulation that required Phillips to file an income tax return. The jury convicted Phillips after the judge gave explicit instructions to convict. Shannon's interview with Phillips will be the subject of the cover story in the next issue of Media Bypass.
This incorporation was first reported by Gary W. Phillips, whose career with the Immigration and Naturalization Service began in 1956. He was the INS director at Sea Tac Airport for 20 years and began challenging the income tax in 1985 (The Idaho Observer, March, 2000). After nearly 40 years of government service, Phillips was forced to flee his country to protect his life after exposing the facts of the illegality of the federal government's criminal income tax collection scam -- facts that are becoming well know among informed people throughout the country.
Where did the Congress find the authority in the Constitution to reconstitute any part of the united States as a corporation? Quite simply, the 1791 Constitution was set aside to make room for the corporation. Would this Act benefit the Republic? No, the private, corporate bottom line is profit. The municipal, public bottom line is service. To replace our service-oriented form of government with a profit-oriented form of government without our knowledge or consent can only be described as treason.
The previous information was taken almost verbatim from the beginning of a letter sent to King County Sheriff David Reichert of Seattle from Gary W. Phillips. Phillips, 69, whose career with the Immigration and Naturalization Service began in 1956 and resulted in his being the federal agency's director at Sea Tac Airport for 20 years, began challenging the income tax in 1985 (The Idaho Observer, March, 2000). After nearly 40 years of government service, Phillips was forced to flee his country to protect his life after exposing the facts of the illegality of the federal government's criminal income tax collection scam -- facts that are becoming well know among informed people throughout the country. http://proliberty.com/observer/20010402.htm Is Our Constitutional House on Fire
