Fallen Upon Hard Times
The two guiding lights of Creditors in Commerce are now fallen stars and have been convicted and sentenced to hard time in Federal prison.
On June 15th, 2015, Brandon Alexander Adams received a 40-month prison sentence. The following day, Gordon Leroy Hall was hammered with a stiff term of eight years.
February 4th, 2014, Hall and Adams were indicted on four counts of “attempting to produce fictitious instruments purporting to be actual securities issued under the authority of The United States.”
An additional fifth count was attached to Gordon Hall, a convicted felon, for knowingly possessing firearms.
The Taxman Commeth
Attorneys for the United States allege that towards the end of January 2014, Hall and Adams produced two documents, one for $868,397.60 and the other for $635,176.26, in an attempt to help Hall pay off his alleged debts to the IRS.
On February 7th, 2014 arrest warrants were issued and Adams was taken into custody that very day in New Mexico. More than two months transpired before Hall was arrested and booked in Spartanburg County, South Carolina on April 28th.
When Push Came To Shove
Despite having given advice to the patrons of his seminars to avoid using a lawyer and to plead guilty when charged by government courts; Adams pled Not Guilty and there is no record of Adams attempting to avoid using a lawyer.
The court record reveals that Adams filed a financial statement and was furished with a court-appointed attorney. On the other hand, Hall clearly waived his right to court-appointed counsel (and this is where the government narration begins to get shady). Almost immediately upon Hall setting out to defend himself, attorneys for the United States filed a motion for a FARETTA HEARING.
Why We Avoid Lawyers
An advantage for a defendant with a legal education and experience in law is that many motions and arguments which could effectively win your case or a dismissal of the charges will not and cannot be argued by appointed counsel.
Attorneys are very conservative and operate within a narrow range of acceptable legal argument or face sanctions by the court.
Lawyers have a vested interest, whether they be prosecutors, judges or defense counsel, in maintaining de minimus standards and procedures that benefit the criminal justice system, often at the expense of the defendant.
Feds Stack The Deck
Although Mr. Hall had the right idea in moving to litigate his own case; unfortunately, he couldn’t avoid the federal attorneys, nor their trap, nor the fact that the judge was a former lawyer. Under the ruse of a Faretta Hearing, the Federal Court ruled that Hall “failed to demonstrate a knowing and intelligent waiver of his right to counsel” and compelled him to be represented by a court-appointed attorney. In other words, they intentionally stacked the deck against him.
During the next six months, Hall made several attempts to have his court-appointed counsel removed so that he could proceed on his own. But each effort was denied by the court. Burdened with the weight of his federally-appointed attorney, Hall proceeded into a jury trial and – not surpisingly – was found guilty.
Adams pursued a different path. On January 13th, 2015 he accepted a plea bargain and never went to trial. Apparently, the court waited for Hall’s trial to conclude and then sentenced the two of them back to back.
Hall is currently in prison and has filed an appeal. An additional filing was blocked on the premise that Hall is represented by counsel and therefore is not allowed to file anything on his own.
Adams is scheduled to self-surrender by no later than Monday, August 17, 2015, at 12:00 p.m. to begin serving his sentence. The hearings and trials took place at Sandra Day O’Connor U.S. Courthouse in Phoenix, Arizona.
You know, if you stick with this discipline long enough, you actually begin to get somewhere. As was mentioned earlier, Hall and Adams wound up on the short end of the stick in an attempt to help Hall pay off his alleged debts to the IRS.
Since this article was written I have requested that the IRS send my MASTER FILE to me. (Look that up online). Well, guess what happened? They sent a bogus response citing some obscure code claiming they didn’t have to send it to me.
I looked up that code and lo and behold, it didn’t even remotely correspond to their claim. And do you know why they won’t send your MASTER FILE? The real reason, not their story . . . . Because they have you listed AS EITHER A TOBACCO FARMER, A GUN RUNNER OR A DISTILLER!
Now I’m not going to detail that out for you. That’s research you will have to do on your own. Point is, my own experience has proved that Adams and Hall were underdeveloped. No one with expertise would have done what they did.
If you’re in trouble with the IRS, REQUEST YOUR MASTER FILE. When they don’t send it, you’ve caught them in dishonor as well as acting in bad faith. You’re not required to pay ANYONE anything without proof of claim. If they withhold your master file, they have no proof of claim against you. If they say some other paperwork is your proof of claim, simply reply that you won’t believe a lick of what they’re claiming until you verify their claim against your MASTER FILE.
Back that up with the legal presumption that they have you listed under a fraudulent status. If they cannot provide proof to the contrary, you have them for fraud.
Not only that, you have to pay taxes because you’re presumed to be 1) a “taxpayer” 2) an employee of US Inc.. Instead of resisting your legal person, enforce the fact that you’re happy to fill out their paperwork BUT YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO DO IT FOR FREE. That’s not employment, that’s involuntary servitude.
Send them your Fee Schedule. $50,000 per hour for filling out their tax forms. Plus there’s postage and the drive to the PO. Be creative. Tell them you’re not willing to extend them credit. But you will be more than happy to fill out their tax forms, JUST AS SOON AS YOU’VE BEEN PAID.
What a difference a couple of years makes. Adams and Hall had contract law nailed but they were missing key components and like a snake it bit them. Law is actually easy. However, it has many ingredients and one has to be willing to search them out. NEVER settle for just one source of information.
Study the failures like LeRoy Schweitzer, Winston Shrout, Adams and Hall. Also study the wackos like David Wynn Miller and Russell Jay Gould. To that I recommend the following: Mark Christopher, Dean Clifford and David Williams.
Mark Christopher‘s longer lectures are worth watching. He’s Miller and Gould distilled. Dean Clifford embodies the necessary attitude for victory and must be included for that reason alone. David Williams will open your eyes to International Law, which is included in the US Constitution and yet NO ONE ever talks about it.
When you have all of that under your belt and can come at the criminals from a national and international attack simultaneously, they’re screwed. Adams and Hall taught some very useful principles. If they had known more, they would have put the IRS on the spot instead of the other way around. If you even remotely fear these people, then you simply haven’t learned enough.
It’s all fraud, folks. Once you know enough, they’re entirely vulnerable. So like George C. Scot says in the opening sequence of the movie “Patton”, “Weigh into the enemy. Make him bleed!” Gear up and put on your attitude. If you’re not well-rounded and totally prepared to kick ass, you will surely get your ass kicked. Just ask Adams and Hall.
