A31-129 – Constitutional Taxation

A31 Ep 129 Cover Art

Todd is away this weekend, and Corey interviews a government employee of more than 30 years on the subject and implication of Supreme Court Decision Brushaber v. Union Pacific R.R. Co. This is one of the most information dense podcasts ever produced by Agenda31, and is the first modern look into the landmark case that identifies for tax purposes, an Art. IV citizen as a  “non resident alien” with respect to the Federal Government and United States sourced income.

J.P. presents evidence that Frank Brushaber was born in the United States after the passage of the 14th Amendment, and could, if he opted, identify himself as a 14th Amendment U.S. citizen. Instead, Mr. Brushaber identified himself as an Art. IV state citizen.

Mr. Brushaber lost his case, however, an examination of this case, as detailed by JP, has incredible implications on widely held legal beliefs. The lessons from the Brushaber case are many, this is a podcast you will want to listen to several times, take notes, and have access to the references below.
