This institution and its economic policies are an enigma to most government officials and American citizens. To understand the Federal Reserve Bank, we have to first look at how it operates. We can then understand why our founding fathers were opposed to such a system for the United States of America. The Federal Reserve is what is known as a central bank. This bank is not regulated by the United States government. It creates the nation's money supply, loans it back to the government at interest, and regulates interest rates on the money it loaned out. However, the Federal Reserve, also commonly called "the Fed," does not loan out money held in its vaults. Instead, it creates new money for circulation by adding credits to an account. Thus, they are creating new money that never existed before. How much money can be created out of nothing? The Fed is only required to hold ten percent in reserves, and can loan out ninety percent. One of the Federal Reserve's publications states, "Of course, they (the banks) do not really pay out loans from the money received from deposits. What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes (money) for credits to the borrowers account." Actual currency is relative to the amount of new loans in demand. In short our system is based on debt. New money cannot be created unless banks issue new loans. The Federal Reserve is a private bank. It loans America it's currency at interest like any other bank, and process works like this. The federal government needs to make more money. It has the Federal Reserve print reserve notes (money) worth a set value. The federal government then prints treasury bonds, which is basically a promissory note to pay back the loan of the currency at interest. In simple terms our government is in debt to the Federal Reserve as soon as the money is created. If the government is in debt to the Fed, who makes the money, and the only way to get out debt is make more money, and the people who make the money are charging interest; how would the debt ever be paid off? It doesn't. As stated by the great scientist and creator of the light bulb, Thomas Edison wrote, "If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good, makes the bill good, also. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who contribute directly in some useful way. It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not $30 million in currency. Both are promises to pay, but one promise fattens the usurers and the other helps the people."

In America the ultimate control of money rests with the bankers of the Federal Reserve System. Because of this it is detrimental that we as citizens understand how this shadowy - private - organization works and how it's ultimate goal is to forever enslave us in a descending pit of debt that we will never crawl out of.

FIRST LOOK Inside the FEDERAL RESERVE, USD, CASH, GOLD monetary SYSTEM - Americas Money Vault, National Geographic Full Episode PART 1 For the first time, National Geographic takes you inside the heart of the money machine to places that you're not allowed to bring a camera ...straight into the vaults of some of the world's largest stashes of what you want, need and bust your butt to get: Money. Hidden deep under the streets of New York City, hundreds of billion dollars in gold bars are tucked away in a bunker that is anchored to the bedrock of Manhattan Island itself. In the latest in a string of high-profile hacking disclosures, the Federal Reserve confirmed on Wednesday that one of its websites was broken into by cyber hackers in a breach that reportedly leaked the contact information of thousands of bankers. While the central bank said the incident didn't "affect critical operations" of the Federal Reserve System, the disclosure is sure to fuel concerns about the cyber security of government websites and critical financial infrastructure. The Fed hack appears to be tied to an Anonymous group that published on Twitter the credentials of more than 4,000 commercial bankers early Monday morning. The group, Operation Last Resort, said it received the documents "via the FED." Call it the Rick Perry gold rush: The governor wants to bring the state's gold reserves back from a New York vault to Texas. And he may have legislative support to do it. Freshman Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, is carrying a bill that would establish the Texas Bullion Depository, a secure state-based bank to house $1 billion worth of gold bars owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Co., or UTIMCO, and stored by the Federal Reserve. "If you think gold is a hedge, or a protection, you always want it as close to the individual and the entity as possible," Paul told The Texas Tribune on Thursday. "Texas is better served if it knows exactly where the gold is rather than depending on the security of the Federal Reserve." Sadly, most Americans don't even realize that a private banking cartel has a monopoly over all money creation in this country. In recent years they have abused this power by wildly printing money ("quantitative easing"), and by making more than 16 trillion dollars in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis. "Neither the Treasury Department nor the Federal Reserve believes that the law can or should be used to facilitate the production of platinum coins for the purpose of avoiding an increase in the debt limit" remaining alternative to Congress raising the nation's borrowing limit, which would utilize a loophole in federal law to mint a $1 trillion coin to be deposited in the Federal Reserve and ensure the federal government could pay all bills and debt obligations. gold, money, cash fed, "federal reserve" ,bank ,banking ,bankers ,system, matrix ,monetary ,vault, "armored vehicle", police, cops, control, mafia, episode, tv, show, america ,u.s, "united states", american, nyc, "new york" ,"new york city" ,"gold bullion" ,"scrap gold", "buy gold", "sell gold" ,"silver coins" ,"silver bullion", "u.s. mint" ,inside, "first look" ,usd ,dollar ,crash, crisis, trust, etf, "paper gold" ,stocks, trading, investment, investing, future, world, global, supply, debt, 2013, forces, vault ,control, illuminati, new world order ,alex jones, infowars, gerald celente, david icke ,farrakhan ,lindsey williams, tvfirst123 You can thank the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing for the incredible bull market that we have seen in recent months. When the Federal Reserve does more "quantitative easing", it is the financial markets that benefit the most. The Dow and the S&P 500 have both hit levels not seen since 2007 this month, and many analysts are projecting that 2013 will be a banner year for stocks. But is a rising stock market really a sign that the overall economy is rapidly improving as many are suggesting? Of course not. Just because the Federal Reserve has inflated another false stock market bubble Barack Obama has been president, 40 percent of all American workers are making $20,000 a year or less, median household income has declined for four years in a row, and poverty in the United States is absolutely exploding. So quantitative easing has definitely not made things better for the middle class. But all of the money printing that the Fed has been doing has worked out wonderfully for Wall Street. Profits are soaring at Goldman Sachs and luxury estates in the Hamptons are selling briskly. Unfortunately, this is how things work in America these days. Our "leaders" seem far more concerned with the welfare of Wall Street than they do about the welfare of the American people. When things get rocky, their first priority always seems to be to do whatever it takes to pump up the financial markets Category Entertainment License Standard YouTube License

This week on Crash Course Economics, we're talking about monetary policy. The reality of the world is that the United States (and most of the world's economies) are, to varying degrees, Keynesian. When things go wrong, economically, the central bank of the country intervenes to try aand get things back on track. In the United States, the Federal Reserve is the organization that steps in to use monetary policy to steer the economy. When the Fed, as it's called, does step in, there are a few different tacks it can take. The Fed can change interest rates, or it can change the money supply. This is pretty interesting stuff, and it's what we're getting into today. Crash Course is on Patreon!

A huge batch of fake US Treasury bonds worth some $6 trillion -- more than a third of the US national debt -- has been seized by Italian police. Eight Italians have been arrested and accused of a large-scale international fraud. The fake bonds and other securities were seized from a Swiss trust company during a joint operation by Italian, Swiss, and US authorities. The fake certificates signed "Chicago, Illinois, Federal Reserve Bank" were stored in trunks stamped with "Federal Reserve System, Treaty of Versailles" marks. The bonds were carrying the false date of issue of 1934. The forgers were planning to use the fake certificates as collateral to secure loans in a number of Swiss banks, prosecutor of the southern Italian city of Potenza said as cited by Reuters. The investigation began over a year ago as a trivial probe into Italian mafia loan-sharking. However, after the Italian authorities uncovered an international network plotting a full-scale fraud, they called upon their Swiss and US colleagues. The US experts helped to identify the bonds as fakes. This is not the first attempt to defraud Swiss banks with fake US bonds, but the most ambitious so far. In 2009 the officers of the Italian financial police arrested two Japanese nationals who tried to cross the Italian border and enter Switzerland with a suitcase full of fake US treasury bonds worth $134.5 billion. In a similar incident in 2009 two Filipinos were arrested at Milan Airport with a bag of fake US bonds amounting to some $180 billion. In January last year six smugglers were arrested during a routine search at a highway rest shop. They were carrying a briefcase full of fake bonds valued at approximately $20 billion.

Worth $6 trillion, the bonds were found in three metal boxes in a warehouse in the Swiss city of Zurich. Italian authorities have arrested eight people and are investigating them for fraud and other crimes.

Economic growth has improved, driving unemployment down and increasing inflation. This has prompted the Federal Reserve to raise short-term rates. But what does this mean for you as a long-term investor? 1. First things first: What is the Federal Reserve? The Federal Reserve Bank, also known as the Fed, is the central bank of the United States. Its members meet eight times a year and work to help keep the U.S. economy running smoothly. In general, the Federal Reserve often changes interest rates to either spur economic growth or slow the economy down. If unemployment is low and inflation is expected to rise above the Fed’s long-term objective of 2%, the Fed may decide to increase rates to prevent higher inflation and the economy from overheating. On the other hand, if unemployment is high or inflation is too low, the Fed may decide to cut interest rates to help spur stronger economic growth. In 2017, the environment is a bit different. We expect the Fed to continue a slow, patient pace of short-term rate increases, not because the economy is overheating, but in order to get rates back to more normal levels. 2. What does the Fed control? The Fed sets a target range for the short-term lending rate, which is also known as the federal funds rate. However, it typically only influences long-term interest rates. For most investors, longer-term interest rates are more important than the short-term federal funds rate. A variety of factors – such as the outlook for economic growth and inflation, supply and demand for credit, market sentiment, and other factors beyond the Fed’s control – impact long-term rates. The Fed has been in the news lately because it plans to reduce its holdings of longer-term government bonds. This will be a gradual process, according to the Fed, and while it could increase long-term rates, it also could be partially offset by other factors. 3. What should you do? Keep in mind that while the Fed’s actions can disrupt the market in the short term, your important financial goals likely haven’t changed. Instead of predicting what the Fed will do next, visit your Edward Jones financial advisor to make sure your portfolio is properly allocated and prepared for any additional rate increases.

With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates over the past couple of years, short-term investments like treasury bills and CDs with maturities of under a year or so have become very popular with investors, and rightly so. Investors have gravitated to the part of the market where they can get more yield with less interest rate risk over time. But one of the concerns that we have is that investors may be getting too short-term in their bond portfolios. Kathy Jones explains why in this week’s episode of Bond Market Today.

This video lesson graphically presents the three tools Central Banks have at their disposal for managing the level of aggregate demand in the economy. Through increasing or decreasing the money supply, a central bank has influence over the interest rates in a nation, and therefore over the level of investment and consumption among firms and households. To accomplish this, three tools are employed: The reserve requirement, the open market purchase or sale of government bonds, and the discount rate. This lesson illustrates these three tools and explains the relative importance of each to monetary policy makers.

Professor L. Randall Wray on how the Federal Reserve cannot operate independently of the US Treasury (and this is true for any other country's treasury and central bank). The biggest reason is because (in the absence of the government paying interest on reserves) it is necessary to minimize the amount of excess reserves in the banking system. "Bank Reserves" are a special form of electronic money, held by banks and foreign governments on the Fed's books. These are used to clear payments between banks and foreign countries. Because banks like to earn interest, they attempt to minimize the amount of excess reserves they hold (reserves beyond what they need to clear payments, or beyond the legal minimum reserve requirement). So if there are excess reserves, banks will offer them to loan to other banks or sell them for interest-earning assets. However, this only shifts reserves between banks, and can't get rid of them. This means that successive bidding will drive the short-term interest rate down to zero (or to any interest rate the government pays on reserves). Therefore, if the Fed wants an interest rate target that is above zero, it must drain the reserves somehow, which it does by selling bonds: by swapping reserves for bonds, the banks get bonds and lose reserves. However, government spending adds reserves to the system, and taxing removes reserves. Therefore, the Fed and the Treasury must coordinate closely to minimize the Treasury's impact on the reserve system and the interest rates. If the government simply deficit spent, this would add tons of excess reserves, and drive rates to zero. If the government taxed before the Fed bought bonds, then the level of reserves would drop below what banks need, driving interest rates up, potentially to infinity (or to whatever the Fed's penalty borrowing rate is).

The US Federal Reserve System announced further reduction of the quantitative easing program. Redemption of bonds will be reduced by $10 billion. The Fed will buy bonds worth 65 billion dollars a month. In particular, the purchase of treasury bonds will be reduced from 40 to 35 billion dollars a month and the purchase of mortgage bonds will be reduced from 35 to 30 billion dollars a month. Such a decision was explained by the fact that during the last quarters the economic growth accelerated, and labor market indicators, despite not being definitely good, show an improvement in the employment situation in the country.

Popp and Philippine National Police Chief Leandro Mendoza STORYLINE: A German man has been arrested in the Philippines with fake US Federal Reserve bonds with a face value of 1.125 (B) billion US dollars. Klaus Dietrich Salzleder from Hamburg was detained shortly after arriving on a chartered plane at a provincial airport, Davao City, about 950 kilometers (600 miles) south of Manila, on Monday. Salzleder, a resident of suburban Manila, was carrying a black box containing the fake bonds in denominations of 500,000 US dollars, treasury certificates, gold bullion certificates, insurance papers, microfilm, four suspected fake US permanent residency green cards and US dollar bonds, according to police. Salzleder, who is married to a Filipina, denied knowledge of the contents of the box and said he was asked by a Filipino he identified only as Sam, to deliver the package to a man at a Manila hotel. Victor Lorenzo, a US secret service agent in Davao, certified they were fake, police said. Police did not say where the chartered flight began. The plane was later allowed to fly to Manila, where Salzleder was met by Central Bank and US Embassy officials. The German man was turned over to the national police investigation group on Tuesday and was to be detained at national police headquarters at Camp Crame in Manila. In February, police seized fake US Federal Reserve bond certificates with a face value of 2 (T) trillion US dollars in another southern province. In May, fake US federal notes worth 1 (T) trillion US dollars were confiscated, also in the southern Philippines.

Get rid of your trading FOMO with our free guide: https://macro-ops.com/fomo/ ***This video is sponsored by Real Vision*** 2018 was a rough year… so rough that for the first time, no major asset class outperformed inflation. This comes from data that goes all the way back to 1901. 93% of assets had a negative return, a crazy high number. Cash was actually king! And it only had a small 1.8% nominal return… This does not happen often. We haven’t seen it happen in the last 19 years. A big part of the reason all this happened is because of the Fed. The first thing we gotta talk about is why interest rates even matter to the stock market. So bonds and stocks, they compete with each other for capital flows. And that means that stocks end up being valued relative to bond yields. Higher interest rates work to compress equity multiples because if interest rates are high enough then investors don’t want to mess around with stocks. They rather go buy bonds instead which are safer and still give them a good return. So higher rates basically pull liquidity (or demand) from risk assets like stocks out of the system. This is why Stan Druckenmiller always talks about how important it is to watch the people who control the interest rates, AKA the Fed. He said: “Earnings don’t move the overall market; it’s the Federal Reserve Board… focus on the central banks and focus on the movement of liquidity… most people in the market are looking for earnings and conventional measures. It’s liquidity that moves markets.” To learn more, make sure you watch the video above! And as always, stay Fallible out there investors!

I try to explain how I think the game will end with US Treasuries. The Federal Reserve must continually receive a low rate on bonds or face an out of debt debt situation as interest payments on the debt become unmanageable. So what is Ben Bernanke and the Fed to do? The solution is simple, they must roll higher term security debt (IE: 10year bonds and longer) into shorter maturity debt. As this happens, shorter term debt itself will start to slip into higher interest rate payments as supply erodes confidence. The answer then is to once again, roll the bonds into even shorter term maturity bonds. This process will be forced upon the Fed and the US government until the game can be played no longer. As Charlie the snake shows in this video, even a debt creature gets sick from bad paper and eventually will need sound money to be involved in a cure. Until then, we can be guaranteed of one thing, the US bond market will turn deadly and eventually kill the corporation known as The United States Of America. This IS the end game for bonds unless a miracle can be found.

Investing can sometimes seem like either like a gamble or very dull. At the "gambling" end of the spectrum are shares, with the possibility of swift ups in price and swift drops in price. At the other end is cash in the bank -- a predictable investment with few changes day-to-day or month-on-month. Investors looking for a middle ground and looking to diversify do have other options. They can consider bonds. Bonds are something of a mystery to many people -- perhaps because they are not often talked about. But bonds can play an important role in managing investments. They can be a half way house between the risk of shares and property and the safety of cash. How do bonds work? At the most basic level, a bond is a loan. Or, more technically, it is a large loan that has been split into packages and sold to investors. Bond holders typically make money by receiving regular payments of interest (known as coupons) during the life of the loan. When the loan ends, their original investment is returned. Bonds may have lives of just a year or two or for 10, 20 or even 30 years. You can buy individual bonds or opt for units in a bond fund run by an asset manager. Like shares, bonds or bond funds can usually be sold at any time and the value of your investment may rise or fall. But bond prices usually move less than shares. That is why they are considered safer than shares but they are more risky than a bank deposit. The original investment and the coupon payments are secure for bonds, while with shares, there is no guarantee of receiving dividend payments -- or your original investment. Looking a bit more closely, there are two main types of bonds -- corporate bonds and government bonds. Corporate bonds are loans made by companies. Government bonds are loans made by governments. Corporate bonds are more risky because the company issuing the bond may go bankrupt. In bankruptcy, though, bond holders are paid before shareholders. Governments rarely go bankrupt so government bonds are safer than corporate bonds. And the lower interest rate on government bonds reflects this. Getting more technical, different types of bonds are designed to work in different financial conditions. In particular, index-linked bonds pay coupons and the original investment in a way that compensates for inflation. The can be attractive to investors who want to ensure the value of their investment does not fall if prices rise. Bonds don't have to be part of your investment portfolio. Some people are happy to invest exclusively in shares and property but if you want to spread your investment risk, if you want to diversify, remember that there is always a half way house in bonds.

This video provides a great explanation for how the U.S. monetary system works. It clarifies a lot of misconceptions about the debt. It also shows you the underlying reason this system is doomed to fail. The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE BANK, WITH STOCKHOLDERS. Let me say that again... THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS A PRIVATE BANK WITH STOCKHOLDERS! What interest do stockholders have over the things they own? PROFIT. They are "loaning" the country money using bad checks they write from an account with no money in it.. By the end you will see what I mean.. Just watch.

http://www.euronews.com/ The US Federal Reserve is sticking to its bond-buying stimulus programme despite some signs of firmer growth in the world's largest economy. Fed chief Ben Bernanke and the policymakers at the US central bank will not make any changes to their current plans to buy $40 billion worth of mortgage debt each month. The Fed has targeted housing as a channel to boost growth and its purchases have helped push already low mortgage rates even lower. That policy may be working as new US single-family home sales surged in September to the highest level in nearly two and half years. Modest job gains, increased job security and the record low mortgage rates are encouraging many to seek home ownership. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage is now 3.36 percent — the lowest since 1971. Fed policymakers have said they would continue their open-ended plans to buy bonds until the employment outlook improves substantially.

Professor L. Randall Wray on why a government with a sovereign non-convertible currency might choose to issue bonds. Bond sales are not a borrowing operation for the state. Logically, since the dollar is a liability (an IOU) of the government, it's impossible for the government to borrow back dollars, just like it would be impossible for you to borrow back your own student loan debt, or for Pizza Hut to borrow back its own coupons. Rather, a bond sale is just a swap of one government-issued asset (cash) for another (bonds) which pays interest. It doesn't change the amount of assets or liabilities out there, only the form. A government that issues its own non-convertible currency does not need to sell bonds in order to spend. This is because it issues the currency every time it spends (and destroys the currency when it taxes). The main reason such a government might want to sell bonds is because of its effects on interest rates. If the government is running a deficit, then it is creating more money than it destroys through taxes. This means that the banking system will have excess reserves, more than they need to settle inter-bank payments and meet reserve requirements. Normally, banks don't want to hold excess reserves, they'd rather purchase some other higher-interest-earning asset. So they will take the excess reserves and try and loan them to other banks (note that they cannot loan them to the public. That would be impossible, because the public does not have accounts at the Fed, and reserves only exist in accounts at the Fed). The market for interbank loans is called the "Federal Funds market" in the United States. The system-wide position of excess reserves, that everybody is trying to get rid of but nobody wants, will drive interest rates down, potentially to zero. If the central bank doesn't want to have a zero overnight interest rate, if they prefer a higher rate target, then they need to drain the excess reserves, and the government does this by selling bonds and destroying the reserves. (And it's identical whether it's the Fed or the Treasury doing the selling.) The government does not need to do this. They could simply leave excess reserves in the banking system, and then have a permanent zero overnight interest rate. Or, they could stop selling bonds, but raise the interest rate by directly paying interest on reserves, because no bank will lend out reserves for less interest than they could get by simply leaving them parked in its Fed account. So, bond sales are actually part of a monetary policy operation to sustain an interest rate higher than the interest rate paid on bank reserves (which is usually zero). A government might also offer bonds to its citizens if it would like to give them risk-free interest income. (For a government that manages its exchange rate, such as through a gold standard, the government may be forced to sell bonds in order to maintain the exchange rate peg. This is because savings held in currency is eligible to be converted to the gold or pegged currency, while savings held in bonds is not. So the government can sell bonds to take pressure off of its exchange rate, and prevent it from running out of foreign currency (or gold) reserves.)

We're busting myths and today, and discussing an unusual way people are trying to pay their bills and other debts - using popular conspiracy theories to access "secret" Treasury Direct Accounts. STRAWMAN/REDEMPTION CONSPIRACY ▶︎Brief history / Asserts the federal government granted a birth certificate (name in all caps - the "straw man" - also on social security, taxes, etc) and that the US government has "secret" trust accounts linked to each citizen. (Been used to avoid taxes; taxpayer claims they're not responsible for tax obligation of "straw man") BIRTH CERTIFICATE ▶︎Asserts the birth certificate "bond" created when you were born that prepays all of your debts. (US government declared bankruptcy in 1933 when the country went off the gold standard. Claims that the bankrupt country, in an effort to prevent foreclosure, pledged all Americans to “International Bankers” as collateral for the national debt. As a result, we are all slaves, and our birth certificates are traded on the markets as bonds worth millions.) ▶︎The IRS has categorized "redemption", "strawman", and "Bond Fraud" under Scams and Safety. UCC CODES ▶︎Acceptance for Value ▶︎Sight Drafts / Bills of Exchange / Promissory Bonds ▶︎"Drawing such drafts on the U.S. Treasury is fraudulent and violation of federal law." - Treasury Dept. ▶︎"It is a violation to Federal Law to misuse the Treasury seal or the words, titles, symbols, or emblems of the Treasury Department, or any service, bureau, office or Treasury subdivision; see 31 U.S.C. 333." SOCIAL SECURITY ▶︎Claims you can access your "secret trust" aka your "TDA" or Treasury Direct Account using your social security number and Federal Reserve routing number. ▶︎"Individuals do not have accounts at the Federal Reserve.The Federal Reserve provides banking services only for banks. Individuals do not have accounts at the Federal Reserve." - Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta ▶︎"Law enforcement, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), is aware of this scheme, and the Federal Reserve Banks, including the New York Fed, have been cooperating with law enforcement in their investigations. Individuals who participate in such schemes could face criminal charges." - Federal Reserve Bank of New York POSSIBLE OUTCOMES: ▶︎Those who have already tried these fraudulent forms of paying debt have already learned that it does not work. Federal Reserve Banks do not hold individual accounts, so your "payment" will be reversed or rejected and when it is, you will not only still owe the debt, but likely have incurred additional fees and may even have been sued, making yourself a candidate for wage garnishment or levy. ▶︎You will see claims that it worked in comment threads and such, but no real, long-term proof has ever been shown, to my knowledge. ▶︎In addition, you may find yourself slapped with hefty fees, fines and penalties, under FBI investigation, arrested and/or charged with a crime. ***RESOURCES*** FBI - https://www.fbi.gov/scams-and-safety/common-fraud-schemes/redemption-strawman-bond-fraud FTC - https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2017/08/no-secret-bank-accounts-pay-your-bills US Dept. of the Treasury - https://www.treasury.gov/about/organizational-structure/ig/Pages/Scams/Bogus-Sight-Drafts.aspx US Dept. of the Treasury - https://www.treasury.gov/about/organizational-structure/ig/Pages/fraud-alerts_index2.aspx Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta - https://www.frbatlanta.org/news/pressreleases/atlantafed/2017/0712-consumer-scam-alert-fr-routing-numbers Federal Reserve Bank of New York - https://www.newyorkfed.org/banking/frscams.html IRS (See #8) - https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/the-truth-about-frivolous-tax-arguments-section-i-d-to-e#anch_83 IRS (See Rev.
