Winston Shrout finally convicted for his income tax scams

About 10 years ago Winston Shrout blew into town and put on a somewhat secret, private seminar for far-edge, think-outside-the-box legal theorist movers and shakers in the Tampa Bay area.  He taught them about the ultra-slick, arcane 1099-OID process of getting the IRS to pay scammers undeserved tax refunds.  I had started calling the process a scam back then, and so the movers and shakers shunned me as they pulled in dupes and fools to whom they sold their 1099-OID service.

It took the IRS and DOJ a few years, but they finally started getting indictments and convictions against 1099-OID and other scammers who used very clever ways of cheating on the taxes.  Incidentally, you should not take my expressed disdain for the scammers as an indication that I believe they actually owed any income tax because I don't.  However, the scammers used an utterly crooked way to get out of paying the tax AND of getting refunds of far more money than they would have deserved with a traditional tax return.

After tolerating years of the scammers' bogus seminars to teach crooked methods and of preparing and filing fraudulent documents, the government got indictments and convictions of the infamous Timothy Turner (of the Restore America Plan scam) and Glen Unger, AKA Dr. Sam Kennedy.  Today those scammers live in federal prisons, right where they belong.

And now Winston Shrout will soon join them because the government just won a conviction against him for his own brand of scams.  See the articles below.

To all who hate the income tax:  beware of preparing or filing false or fraudulent documents in an effort to avoid or evade income tax.

Oregon Promoter Convicted for Making, Passing and Sending Bogus Financial Instruments to U.S. Treasury and Financial Institution and Failing to File Tax Returns

A Hillsboro, Oregon promoter was convicted today following a jury trial of making, passing and submitting fake financial instruments to a financial institution and the U.S. Treasury and failing to file tax returns, announced Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart M. Goldberg of the Justice Department's Tax Division.

 

According to the superseding indictment and the evidence presented at trial, from approximately 2008 through 2015, Winston Shrout, 69, formerly of St. George, Utah, created and submitted more than 1000 bogus financial instruments with the intent of defrauding financial institutions and the U.S. Treasury. Shrout held seminars and private meetings to promote and market the use of these fake financial instruments to pay off debts, including federal taxes. Shrout sold recordings of his seminars, templates for fake financial instruments and other materials through his website.

 

The evidence presented at trial also proved that Shrout failed to file his 2009 through 2014 tax returns despite earning $562,224 from presenting at seminars, licensing fees associated with the sale of his products and annual pension payments.

 

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 1. Shrout faces a statutory maximum sentence of 25 years in prison for each count of making a fake financial instrument and one year in prison for each count of failing to file a tax return. He also faces a period of supervised release, restitution and monetary penalties.

 

Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Goldberg commended special agents of IRS–Criminal Investigation, who conducted the investigation, and Trial Attorneys Stuart Wexler and Lee Langston of the Tax Division, who prosecuted the case.

Self-Proclaimed President of Sovereign Citizen Group Sentenced to Federal Prison for Promoting Tax Fraud Scheme 

U.S. Department of JusticeJuly 31, 2013
  • Office of Public Affairs(202) 514-2007/TDD (202) 514-1888

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the FBI announced today that James Timothy Turner, also known as Tim Turner, was sentenced to serve 18 years in federal prison for conspiracy to defraud the United States, attempting to pay taxes with fictitious financial instruments, attempting to obstruct and impede the IRS, failing to file a 2009 federal income tax return, and falsely testifying under oath in a bankruptcy proceeding.

In March 2013, following a five-day jury trial, Turner was convicted on 10 counts in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. Based on the evidence introduced at trial and in court filings, Turner, the self-proclaimed "president" of the sovereign citizen group Republic for the united States of America (RuSA), traveled the country in 2008 and 2009 conducting seminars teaching attendees how to defraud the IRS by preparing and submitting fictitious bonds to the U.S. government in payment of federal taxes, mortgages, and other debt. The evidence at trial revealed the bonds are fictitious, and witnesses testified that Turner used special paper, financial terminology, and elaborate borders in an effort to make them look authentic and more likely to succeed in defrauding the recipient. Turner was convicted of sending a $300 million fictitious bond in his own name and of aiding and abetting others in sending 15 other fictitious bonds to the Treasury Department to pay taxes and other debts.

The evidence at trial also established that Turner taught people how to file retaliatory liens against government officials who interfered with the processing of fictitious bonds. Turner filed a purported $17.6 billion maritime lien in Montgomery County, Alabama Probate Court against another individual. This investigation began after Turner and three other self-proclaimed "Guardian Elders" sent demands to all 50 governors in the United States in March 2010 ordering each governor to resign within three days to be replaced by a "sovereign" leader or be "removed." The FBI immediately began investigating Turner and IRS- Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) joined the investigation soon thereafter.

"This lengthy prison sentence shows that tax defiers like Turner who use bogus tax schemes and file retaliatory liens against government officials will be punished," said Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Tax Division Kathryn Keneally. "The Justice Department will continue to work with law enforcement to investigate and prosecute those who attempt to defraud the government."

"This sentence should send a message that if you attempt to use retaliatory tax liens and fraudulent tax schemes as weapons against the United States and its citizens you will be punished," stated acting U.S. Attorney Sandra J. Stewart for the Middle District of Alabama. "We cannot and will not tolerate those who violate the law for financial gain. I would like to thank the law enforcement officers who worked vigilantly on this case to bring this criminal to justice."

"Turner influenced others with his false ideology by aggressively promoting obstruction of the IRS," stated Richard Weber, Chief, IRS-Criminal Investigation. "In truth, Turner's own defiance of IRS and his attempts to lead others through the same labyrinth of lies and distortions led to his downfall as shown by the significant sentence he must now serve. Today's sentence should also send a strong message to those who may follow in Turner's footsteps and attempt to defy their tax obligations. The legality of our income tax laws has been challenged time and time again and the courts have consistently upheld them."

"The FBI is committed to vigorously investigate individuals and groups who steal from the federal government for financial gain through schemes deigned to avoid payment on loans, taxes, and other obligations owed the federal government," stated Stephen Richardson, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI, Mobile Division.

In addition to prison time, Turner was ordered to pay $26,021 in restitution to the IRS and to serve a five-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison.

This case was investigated by special agents of the FBI and IRS-CI and was prosecuted by Tax Division Trial Attorney Justin Gelfand and Middle District of Alabama Assistant U.S. Attorney Gray Borden.

Former Orthodontist Convicted of Attempting to Scam the IRS of $36 Million 

U.S. Attorney's OfficeOctober 21, 2013
  • Northern District of New York(315) 448-0672

ALBANY, NY—Richard S. Hartunian, United States Attorney, Northern District of New York, announces that on October 21, 2013, before Senior U.S. District Court Judge Tomas J. McAvoy, a jury convicted Glenn Richard Unger (62, of Ogdensburg, New York) of the following offenses: obstructing and impeding the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); filing false claims against the United States; tax evasion; and passing fictitious obligations.

The evidence at trial showed that Glenn Richard Unger engaged in a multi-year scheme to obstruct and impede the IRS by filing numerous false and fraudulent claims with the IRS for payment of a refund of taxes totaling approximately $36 million. Between 2007 and 2011, Glenn Richard Unger filed 14 false tax returns claiming that he earned substantial income reported on IRS Forms 1099-OID, had substantial withholdings on that income, and was entitled to $36 million in tax refunds. Despite numerous warning letters from the IRS that his returns were frivolous, he continued filing false tax returns.

In addition to obstructing the IRS by filing false and fraudulent claims for refund, the evidence at trial also showed that Glenn Richard Unger attempted to evade payment of taxes he owed to the IRS. During 2004 and 2005, Glenn Richard Unger earned income and failed to file tax returns reporting that income. The IRS assessed taxes for those two years and also assessed penalties for filing frivolous tax returns. After the IRS filed a tax lien against Glenn Richard Unger, the defendant attempted to file a false document with the Saratoga County Clerk's office attempting to release the lien. Evidence at trial also showed that Glenn Richard Unger tried to pay off a debt to another orthodontist with a fictitious document purported to be worth $200,000.

As a result of the conviction, the defendant is facing a statutory maximum term of imprisonment of 25 years and a maximum fine of $250,000. Sentencing is scheduled for March 10, 2014 in Albany, New York.

This prosecution resulted from an investigation conducted by the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation, New York Field Office; the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Albany Field Office; the New York State Police, and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ransom P. Reynolds (Northern District of New York) and Jeffrey Bender (Department of Justice Tax Division).

Colorado People's Grand Jury of face Conspiracy and Racketeering Charges of

A Denver Post news article  and a long, bad indictment show why spearheading a so-called "common law grand jury" or "people's grand jury" paves a path to prosecution and prison.

What's the diff between HE and Sarin bombing?

In a military conflict, combat and collateral damage, included that from bombs, rockets, IEDs, booby traps, rifles, pistols, and poison gas or water, kills or injures people.  And NOBODY (arguably, not even children, especially those able to wield a weapon, because parents are responsible for them) are innocent.

So, let us take the point of collateral damage or slaughter of the arguably innocent.  If that worries heads of state and their war theorists, then they shouldn't wage war because collateral damage is unavoidable, and in fact it is often necessary in order to force an adversary to sue for peace.

Given that heads of state don't intervene or stop the conflict at its outset by such overwhelming and irresistible force as to defeat combatants immediately, they are all in a measure responsible for collateral damage, and they should just shut up and stop whining about it.

Looking at the videos of the sick and dying from the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria, and comparing that to the clouds of smoke and ash from today's high explosive bombing that killed people in the same area, I have to wonder if Trump is loony for wasting US money on his moralizing tomahawk missile attack on the Sha'irat Syria air base the other night.  His attack proved nothing other than the inability to think straight and willingness to piss away taxpayer money in pique.

The USA needs to get its military out of the Mideast and Central Asia altogether, and precede any future interference with tactical nukes to take out the chief troublemakers.

And Americans should take note of the anti-American treachery of the Obama administration in funding and arming the Syrian rebels in a Qatar/Saudi conspiracy to force Assad to allow a Qatar gas pipeline to run through Syria.  Obama might have intended the scheme to let Qatar gas compete against Russian gas in Europe, and as a consequence to collapse Russia's economy as punishment for invading Ukraine and Georgia and snatching the Crimean peninsula.  How is that in US interest?  It isn't.  If Ukraine, Moldova, and other former Soviet possessions want protection, they should pay their share and join NATO.

Obama's stupid scheme has cut loose 5 million Syrians, including many terrorists among them, not to mention countless Iraqis and Afghans, to migrate elsewhere as refugees to set up Islami states wherever they go.  I personally do not welcome the Muslims and stupid among them into the USA, nor should anyone else of good sense.

David Rockefeller - hero or heel?

https://wearechange.org/top-5-reasons-david-rockefeller-wont-missed/

1. One World Government
2. Population Control
3. Population experiments
4. Globalist connections- Ford, Gates, Buffet, Bilderberg, CIA, CFR
5. Worldwide influence - health, agriculture, banking, partnerships

I personally agree with 1, 2, 4, 5, and to a limited extent even 3.  The richest people in the world ought to spend their time and money improving civilization.

Nationalism is the cause of all wars and the waste associated with them.  Only a one-world "super" government can stop the wars.

Lots of countries are dramatically overpopulated, and some are overpopulated with stupid people. 

Population experiments should include gene pool enrichment efforts.

And like-minded people of wealth ought to congregate and plan how to expend their resources and use their connections and influence to improve the world.

I consider it heroic to make such efforts, even though some might need better standards.

Source of Trump's Secret Powers Revealed

Researchers uncover clues to the Secret of Donald's Amazing Power over Hillary

Washington. Sat. April 1 2017.  "I'll give it to you in two little words," chief researcher Harvey Glumberg at the Inner Science Mysteries Foundation explained in a rare interview with the News Genesis Journal late Saturday evening. 


"Evil Eye.  That describes the secret power Donald J Trump had and still has over former Secretary of State and former presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton." he said.

Glumberg refused to elaborate, but this interviewer saw the researcher hiding a book on the Kabbalah beneath papers on his desk just prior to the interview.  The Kabbalah is an esoteric tradition of ancient mystical knowledge that only the brightest Mekubbal scholars fully comprehend.  So some of Glumberg's knowledge of the Evil Eye powers, which few people possess, likely came from the Kabbalah.

Glumberg did admit, though, in both tone and secretive manner, that the Evil Eye is a force to be reckoned with, and people ought not to take it lightly upon becoming its target.  Entire populations in some Mideastern and African regions fear the Evil Eye and frantically try to ward it off lest they become unwitting victims of it.

Suffice it to say, tales and superstitions about the "Evil Eye" predate written history. The Evil Eye is said to be the power to give someone a malevolent stare that inflicts misfortune and calamity on the target and his life.  It can have only a temporary effect until the victim has "learned his lesson" or it can last a lifetime and be passed on to descendants who struggle and fail under misfortune after misfortune until they can find a healer, shaman, or other person of power to break the Evil Eye's grip on the life of the person or family.  Or, the powerful person who inflicted the Evil Eye on the victim can reverse it by the Glance of Grace.

Lord knows, Hillary did enough rotten things during her stint as Secretary of State and the Presidential campaign, not to mention all that time with Bill Clinton in the Governor's house of Arkansas, and the White House, to deserve the Evil Eye.  People still gossip about how she snuffed out the life of Vince Foster or stood idly by while watching someone else do it.

The Evil Eye is widely known, when cast by a man at a woman, to make the woman lose her wits, buckle at the knees, and faint inexplicably.

People close to Donald J Trump claim that he can make people buckle at the knees and faint just by giving them the Evil Eye while watching them on television.  Insiders say they caught Presidential Candidate Trump practicing his Evil Eye skills by just gazing at the TV with eyes fully open, and then by giving a squint, somewhat like the Stink Eye. According to some insiders, Trump's Evil Eye works on his victim anywhere in the world, simply by giving casting a malevolent stare at a photograph or video of the victim.  One insider claimed Trump can look at the date and time on his one-of-a-kind chronograph wristwatch, and project the exact time and date that his Evil Eye will afflict its victim.  The watch was a gift of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, a one-time Kabbalah acolyte.

Liberal Democrat pundits have worried that Trump will lose control of his strange powers, such as the obvious control he has over Hillary Clinton.  "I believe that's one of the reason so many women have rallied at speeches and marches in the streets against Trump,"  Gonzago University alum Courtley Vanderfoot wrote on her blog. "He affects women just by his presence.  All he has to do is look at them and they cannot help reacting in extreme ways."

An unnamed former U.S. Defense Department official, speaking on the Q.T., said President Donald J. Trump is America's secret weapon.  When asked if the rumor about the President's Evil Eye powers is true, he retorted "Have you notice how the price of Hamsa and Nazar anti-evil-eye charms has skyrocketed lately?  Stores can't keep them on the shelves. Democrats have bought all of them up."
