The United States Government wants Wesley Snipes behind bars immediately.

072210_Wesley_Getty_BN
Federal prosecutors in Florida are tired of waiting for Wesley to do his time for tax evasion.  They're asking the judge to "immediately revoke Wesley Trent Snipes's bail and order him to surrender."

Snipes was convicted in May 2008 for evading $12,000,000 in taxes.

The Federal Reserve Bank (a private company which prints the money to control us) and The IRS have scammed humanity for so many years thanks to the majority of uneducated people like the ones posting the comments here.

People, WAKE UP, Educate Yourself, Learn the Constitution, do your research before you make your comments. Please watch, Aaron Russo's "America Freedom to Fascism" on DVD, then research all the info on this do***entary. Fact: There is NO Law which states we have to pay any Income Tax for your Wages or Labor. Does Not Exsist.

Ask the Judge, if he can show you a constitutional law or statute (Not U.C.C) which requires you to pay taxes on your wages or labor that you will pay it. Guess what, he can’t, he will be forced to close the case and set you free after the IRS cartel has locked you up. THIS IS FACT. THE IRS is an illegal cartel/mafia.

Mr. Snipes, please get in contact with Alex Jones from infowars.com or prisonplanet.tv and Gary from restoretherepublic.com to find you a Lawyer which will get you out of this MESS. Time is of the essence don’t wait any longer, don’t let these s***bags pwn you or steal your hard earned money.

Sadly, Wesley Snipes, like many Americans, got drawn in by the "tax protest" movement. These people make frivolous and bizarre legal arguments claiming that you don't actually HAVE to pay your taxes, as long as you go into court and say the right magic words. Of course, there are no magic words to get you out of your obligation to pay your taxes.

Maybe this will serve as a warning to anyone else tempted by the snake oil salesmen who call themselves "tax protesters": http://lawblog.legalmatch.com/2010/07/23/legal-snake-oil-the-tax-protest-movement/

The IRS is not incensed that he "didn't pay his taxes." The law states that we must ALL report our income to the IRS by filing a tax return. Wesley Snipes did not report his income for three years.

Instead of you all condemning Mr. Snipes for tax fraud, take a look at the tax law and see if he is liable first.
There is NO law that makes most Americans liable for the income tax.( title 26 subtitle A ) I could go on an on but what's the use if you do not understand subtitle A, then there is no help for you.

This is for the one that posted #51 , AND YOU KNOW THE LAW HAHA
(18) Since only those involved in ATF, Government employees, Law enforcement and Law enforcement officers are subjects to the Lien/Levy under Part 70 and as stated in 26 USC 6321,6322,6323, & 6331 (a), those provisions of the USC do not pertain to private people, in respect of any Notice of Lien/Levy. Thus a lien on a private person by the IRS constitutes dolus by omission, by the agent signing the bogus Notice of Lien-or Levy, as 26 USC 6331 (a), which states that it applies only to federal employees, is missing. This would alert any recorder that the one lien or levied must be a federal or state employee as listed in 27 CFR Part 70. One must remember the word "taxpayer," and "person" in the legal context of this process is NOT the private man or private corporation, because neither is involved with a "trade or business" as defined in 26 USC 162 and 26 USC 7701 (a) 26 nor the "person" as defined in 26 USC 7343, who are all 26 USC 7701(a) (14) Taxpayers.

I'm not sure that robots are the best way to comment on this situation. But if they are, I would check this link.

Wesley Snipes is NOT GUILTY of income tax evasion. Why? Because there is "NO LIABILITY" for the income tax in subtitle "A" of Title 26. No one can be charged lawfully for any income tax crime of subtitle "A" of Title 26, simply because no liability exists for the tax. The DOJ is the criminal in the case of Wesley Snipes because they have not rendered due process to Wesley Snipes as guaranteed in the Constitution. I challenge any EA or IRS Agent to refute what I have stated with law that can be verified.
