How to stop the destruction of America

Saturday, June 29th, 2013


Mike Travis on the Internet’s Tea, under Patriot Solutions:  “Before anyone berates me for being arrogant, this is not my idea but that of Sheriff Richard Mack who established CSPOA which is Constitutional Sheriffs and Police Officers Association.  I heard him speak Sat 22 June and he was phenomenal showing how the Constitution was written then comparing that to how the corrupt government twists or ignores it to push their own agendas.  He believes that the federal government is so totally corrupt that we cannot change it in DC, but we can and must change it at the local level and after hearing him I totally agree.”

“He even sued the federal government when they passed the Brady Bill that would have forced him to enforce an unconstitutional law.  The amazing thing is he won his case in the supreme court which reinforced the principle in the 10th Amendment that says states’ rights override unconstitutional federal laws.”

“Please consider joining the CSPOA as I am convinced it is the only way we can prevent the federal government, in conjunction with the UN and other international forces, from destroying America totally.  Here is a link to their site:

James Watson:  “This is not possible. Better to accelerate the destruction and rebuild after the parasitic politicians are eliminated from governance. Return to the original Constitution.”

Curt Perron: “Do you really think that can happen, Jim? No way. The destruction we are witnessing is planned and the rebuilding you think will happen will not be what you envision. It will be what was planned long ago. If you can’t stop the deliberate destruction of America do you think you will have the power to rebuild it after it’s destroyed?  Ever hear the communist meme, thesis, antithesis, synthesis?” 

James Watson: “Every Tea Party member should read Thomas Jefferson’s works and The Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers as well.  There is much to learn from all the Colonial writings that preceded and followed the Revolutionary War.”

Joseph Smith: “I’ve read all that stuff and acted. The IRS was forced to eat crow. Why am I the only one? Nobody seems to want to say.”

James Watson: “Why Joseph? Because you are repeating yourself.  You posted your story before and I did read it and I do believe you. The IRS never eats crow they just move on to fleece some other poor guy because they have the courts in their pocket and winning in Tax court is still losing, because you are never made whole!”

Joseph Smith: “ Nobody makes you whole, James. It’s a do-it-yourself thing.  I’m  a go-it-alone guy. In the spring of 1975, I cut from the herd and went on my own, at the time my life in ruins.  In 2013, my life is about as good as it gets. Was it luck?  I don’t think so.”

“James says I’m repeating myself.  I have yet to see anyone grasping what I’ve said, so I’ll continue repeating myself, James, on how to stop the destruction of America.”

“What’s my secret? I studied the Constitution, looking for my individual rights, and found the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment. You know, the Amendment the IRS is hiding behind.  The IRS called me a “Fifth Amendment freak.” 

“The new Commissioner of Internal Revenue tells Congress that his investigation found that the IRS had done nothing wrong. On the front page of The Palm Beach Post on December 6, 1986, the IRS admitted that for eleven years it had been wrong.  Why is it that the IRS gets away with telling Congress it does nothing wrong?  It’s a game of charades.  No, I’m no Fifth Amendment freak. The IRS is the pot calling the kettle black.  I made sure the IRS didn’t get away with its lie—more than you can give your representatives credit for; more than you can give any recognized authority credit for.  This nobody made the IRS eat crow—with nothing more than my Constitution.”

“There is much more to it. The Constitution is merely stating the higher law of nature, that of which our Creator endowed us to know.  No other life form on the planet is equipped to perceive of a higher law. The object of authority is to make you think it knows better than you know the higher law, to make you jump through authority’s hoops.  James, I don’t believe authority.  Thomas Jefferson said the Supreme Court is not the highest authority.  Jefferson: ‘It is a very dangerous doctrine to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions.’ So why do you, James? 

“I used the decisions of America’s judges to prove them wrong. I took the court record to The Palm Beach Post.  The Palm Beach Post made liars out of them all.  And get this, James.  I did it on my own.”

“Long years after I proved that the power was in me to make the determination of what was best for me, I read it in the Gospels.  Jesus said, “on earth as it is in heaven,” with this distinction, “seek ye first the kingdom of God.” He said the kingdom of God is in you.” 

“The authorities try to make you think the kingdom of God is in heaven, and that they alone know what God expects of you.  Who are you and I to question authority?  Jesus questioned authority. Who was Jesus?  He had nothing good to say for his authority.  Jesus was a troublemaker. The Romans had enough trouble without Jesus adding to it. They crucified him. This is what I read in the Gospels.”  

“The authorities  now want you to feel guilty for the crucifixion of Jesus. Nothing like a guilt trip to take control of your life. ‘There but for the grace of God go I.’  We must share and share alike.  It’s B.S., James!  It is all aimed at putting us under authority’s control.”

Bryan Howell: “Did anyone notice that after this Senate vote on the Immigration Bill,6-27-2013,the illegal immigrants and immigrants were outside waving the Mexican flag? Also, they had the “American Flag” flying “upside down” and the Mexican Flag flying above it! Folks, I think the Senate and Obama have gotten us into a big mess!”

Joseph Smith: “For years, the American people have been angry about the open southern border.  Our representatives continue to make excuses. Senator Rubio gives us his excuse. We don’t buy it.  We’re sick and tired of the excuses but nothing changes.

“Christology is the field of study within Christian theology which is primarily concerned with the nature and person of Jesus. Following the Apostolic Age, there was a fierce political debate. Christology was  the main focus.  The emperor of  Rome’s Eastern Empire, Constantine, had a vision and became a Christian.  He gathered together all the Christian bishops and took a vote. Christology was defeated. Christianity’s origin is political.  The message Jesus left was changed to place the very authority Jesus called hypocrites in control.”

“Jesus’ appeal was to the individual.  By going on the message my Constitution left with me, one and the same that Jesus left, I discovered the power that lies within me.  By cutting from the herd, I was reborn the person I was intended to be.  It was not luck that I turned my life around and made the IRS eat crow.  My life is good because I’ve followed the higher law of nature.”

James Watson: “Fighting the IRS is like sheering a pig and even when you win you have been forced to put up with a lot of squealing and have no wool to show for the work you put into it. So Joseph, you seem to be claiming that the victory and ability to say you won gives you enough satisfaction when they put you through such a nightmare ? Well I am glad for you but it would not satisfy me 100%– unless I could cane the agents responsible.” 

In a private email to me, James: “You may fight the IRS and win but you will never be made whole because you can never recover the time and energy you spent in order to win when you should not have been made to fight the IRS in the first place.”

“I have read your complete story and I support your fight and I will remember your victory and should I get into that situation I too hope to beat them.”

“Saying you will never be made whole is to say you will never get what you deserve from the individuals who persecuted you, that being 1 an apology and 2 being at least paid for the time and energy you had to use to win, but you said that they also harmed your personal relationships [marriage etc.].  How can you be made whole in that area?  You can’t, so even in winning you did lose something.”

Joseph Smith: “Thank you, Mike Travis, for giving me the opportunity to tell the American people how to stop the destruction of America.”

“James Watson doesn’t think it is possible to stop the destruction. James says he has read my posts on my fight with the IRS, which I won.  In an email to me, James points out that my fight with the IRS cost me my wife and other personal loses.  While I won, I paid a price. Yes, James, you are right.”

“The fact is that by cutting my umbilical cord with my past, freeing myself to discover who I really was, from a life in ruins I built a new life. When everything should have gone wrong, according to the way we’ve been taught to think, everything started going right. Miraculously, my fourth wife appeared out of the blue. Karen is the love of my life. I owe my good life to her. We’ve been married thirty-two years. All of my dreams have come true.”

“The Pilgrims paid a price. We Americans have reaped the benefits. The Pilgrims, religiously oppressed Puritans, suffered terribly for their freedom in America.  We owe those who endured immense suffering and death that we might be free.”

“I studied my Constitution for the purpose of attacking the lawless IRS. Yes, it was at big risk. When I read the Constitution, I heard voices of the past. Realizing their sacrifice that I might be free, I received a bigger than life calling. I could do no less than fight for our freedom. My sacrifice was small in comparison, and I’ve been richly rewarded. It all began when I studied my Constitution. I’m a voice in the wilderness. If I could get my message to the American people, I’ve no doubt that we can stop the destruction of our beloved America.”

On the Writ of Habeas Corpus

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

The Water-Bearer

Writ of habeas corpus (Latin meaning you have the body).  A writ directing a person detaining a prisoner to bring him or her before a judicial officer to determine the lawfulness of the imprisonment.  Most U.S. authorities insist that NSA’s Snowden is a criminal. 

We don’t have the body of Snowden.  China and Russia gave Obama the middle finger, Muslim Obama, who promised to transform America; Obama, who has his talking points on Benghazi. He used the IRS to win his election. His DOJ is lying, and he’s lying about snooping on the American people. 

The United States is a bigger threat than international terrorism. The Muslim Brotherhood is in control, those peace loving Muslims that NSA’s Clapper loves, Clapper, the liar who says he is not gathering information on millions of Americans.  Some of us think Snowden is a hero for exposing what Clapper and Obama are up to.

After five years of Obama, with the economy still limping,  thanks to Obama’s socialist cures, Fed Chairman Bernanke said the Fed might later in the year ease off on practically nothing interest rates.  His statement caused the stock market to nosedive. Where the economy would have been were it not the Fed’s easy money policy, we shudder to think.  We are living in a dream world.  We’ll never get out of the hole we’ve dug.

Something capitalist Henry Ford said comes to mind. “If you think you can you can. If you think you can’t you can’t.”   By thinking he could, Ford changed the world for the better.  By thinking you can’t, and you must depend on government, you get socialism, zero rights, and poverty.  Socialist thinking is insane.

This brings me to Einstein, who revealed mathematically that if one could travel at the speed of light time would come to a standstill and space would shrink to naught.  What would you have left?  Einstein figured vibrations.  Vibrations are represented by numbers.  The ancients used numbers  to explain the makeup of the universe and man’s place.

Light travels in waves. Water waves and air waves require a medium. Light waves travel in a vacuum. In physics lab experiments, when light waves are observed they change into particles, something physical. Einstein’s mathematics merely point out our state of consciousness, which is not in the time-space consortium.  It’s a quality—when time is at a standstill and space shrinks to naught.

Sociologist Robert K. Merton brought us to know  “unintended consequences.”  He called it the self-fulfilling prophecy. “The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the original false conception come ‘true’. This specious validity of the self-fulfilling prophecy perpetuates a reign of error. For the prophet will cite the actual course of events as proof that he was right from the very beginning.”  Yes indeed, we do make our reality, which brings me to my point.     

In that at the speed of light, time and space do not exist, but there comes the day of unintended consequences—we are in the space-time consortium—from the state of being to physical—the deeper reality—consciousness—beyond space and time—but with the potential to manifest as both space and time, if we think we can picture what’s going on, that’s indication that we’ve got it wrong, said Werner Heisenberg,  who published his uncertainty principle in September 1925, in the month and year that I was born.

We find that with my birth came “understanding the laws by which subtle forces are organized…. The natives have tremendous willpower and are relentless in working toward a goal…. Often there is a sense of destiny or a peculiar karmic mission they must fulfill.”  Astrologer’s Handbook.  

We learn in astrology that I’m way ahead of my time. We are now at the dawn of the Age of Aquarius, an age when we become our brother’s keeper.  Don’t take it from me. Jesus talked about it.  He said that if you want to escape all these things that shall come to pass, to stand before the Son of man (Luke 21:36).


The truth about astrology

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

The Water-Bearer

Of all people, Hitler revealed the truth.  He was an occultist.   The so-called Aryan superman idea comes from the part of the world where civilization began.  Some of those ancient people, if not all, were demigods, the descendants of aliens of other worlds.  In Genesis 1:26, we read, “And God said, Let us make man in our image.”  Some of those aliens came here for something they wanted that we had and they didn’t. You can count on that.

There is evidence of flying saucers in Nazi Germany.  After the defeat of Nazi Germany, Nazi rocket scientists were brought to the United States. Soon after their arrival, flying saucers appeared in American skies.  One crashed near Roswell, New Mexico.  The biggest cover-up in history began.  Rest assured that the United States is getting something these aliens have that it wants.  It is something for something. It is not for your benefit or mine.  It is for control.  

But getting  back to the beginning of civilization, there were priests who gave us the zodiac, a map of the heavens. Those priests knew advanced mathematics. They geometrized the universe.  They gave us personal characteristics. They predicted events.  They predicted the coming of Jesus, the king of Jews. These were the “three wise men” from the east.

The Jews wanted no part of this man of peace.  They envisioned a conqueror who would drive out the Romans.  They were of the Aryan mindset.  From the idea of peaceful co-existence and the conqueror idea, we Americans remain divided.  Nazi Germany was not defeated. It merely went underground.  They are in control.

In The Rising Sign, astrologer Jeanne Avery, under “Aquarius Rising,” my sign: “He may be the person to bring back information that has been lost to civilization for centuries….He is not one to hide his light under a bushel. The need for constant variety and freedom can bring fascinating experiences into his life, yet he can be unpredictable to the extreme.”  Read about this person in my book, In Earth as It Is in Heaven 2012.  I’m that person.

In Matthew 6, we read Jesus saying, “in earth as it is in heaven….But seek ye first the kingdom of God.”  He said the kingdom of God is in you.  Were God in heaven, it would take an authority to know what God wants of us, an Aryan—a conqueror.   

Keeping in mind that I’m politically conservative, Jesus said that there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars; and that there would be distress among the nations (Luke 21:25).  And when these things come to pass, said Jesus,  the Son of man would come (Luke 21:27). He said to know that the kingdom of God would be on hand (Luke 21:28). “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man”  (Luke 21:36)  

Do liberal Democrats want peace or do they want an Aryan conqueror? I go along with Jesus.  I’m a man of peace.


Taxpayer wages 11-year feud with IRS

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

My title today was the headline in The Palm Beach Post on December 6, 1986. The story began with, “Joseph W. Smith Jr. (me) is convinced he’ll never have any peace as long as he’s a taxpayer and the Internal Revenue Service exists.”

In the article, Holger Euringer, IRS public relations officer: “We did make numerous mistakes in the collection procedure. We are very sorry and we apologize.”

The article goes on to detail the “mistakes,” including the violation of a Tax Court order and the violation of a U.S. District Court order.  The IRS was sorry for obstruction of justice? The article tells of the IRS going to my bank and seizing every cent in my checking account.  All it took was a piece of paper, which did not even include a signature, to rob my wife and I of our rent and grocery money.  The P.B.P. article ends with this admission: “Euringer said the Nov. 5 bank account levy was a mistake.”   This kind of government mistake is what puts people on the street. And what kind of people?  Working people struggling to exist.

Well, we’re not perfect. Sometimes these “mistakes” happen. But think of the overall good your government is doing. Said Senator Bob Graham in a letter to me: The IRS is allowed to use “draconian” means in the collection procedure.  Do say? I was a trouble maker–a “tax protester” trying to get out of paying my “fair” share of the tax burden, said Senator Graham and other liberal Democrats–the kind that would push grandma over a cliff.

 Aside from the fact that I was a political conservative making waves, my wife and I were two average citizens struggling to exist. I was age 69, with a heart condition.  My doctor told me I’d probably be having open-heart surgery within five years. My wife was 59, a medical secretary, was just diagnosed with cancer when the IRS letter arrived.   But never mind this, I was a racist white man.  Latino women make better judges.  Obama put a Latino woman on the Supreme Court to judge me.

The Tea Party complains about being singled out. Here this: The Democrats had me red tagged as a tax protester. In 1994, the IRS went on a witch hunt to find tax protesters.  I was retired, so the IRS, with nothing to go on, informed my wife’s employer that it was going to garnish her wages for unpaid income tax. She received a letter from the IRS telling her that unless she immediately paid $35,000 in unpaid income tax, penalty and interest, the IRS was authorized to seize our home, and anything else we owned in payment of the tax.  This is actually what they do to individuals who make waves.  

The Fifth Amendment, besides giving the IRS the right to say nothing in a congressional hearing, gives us due process of law. The U.S. District Court refused to hear the case. Think of this. The IRS had already violated two court orders.  Taxpayers going to court under the due process clause of the Fifth amendment is a joke. As far as average Americans are concerned, the IRS can do no wrong. There is nothing you can do about it, right?

With nothing to go on, my wife, the victim of an IRS fraud–without even being allowed to be heard, I guess that aught to tell you what liberal Democrats are about. My Republican Congressman intervened.  It was an IRS mistake. 

Think of the stress this typical Democrat stunt needlessly causes.  Obama is literally  killing us. Which is the bigger of the two threats to your freedom, the United States or international terrorism?  The United States, for security reasons, is secretly taking actions that threaten your freedom—such as the IRS’ out-and-out robbery of the working people of America; such as gathering information on everything you do; such as attempting to take your guns; such as lying about everything.  And you depend on your government to correct these wrongs? Just cool it and let them get to the bottom of this? Are you kidding? The majority of the voters love what the your government is doing.  To them, “There but for the grace of God go I.”

I believe God helps those who help themselves. The proof is in the pudding. My dreams have come true, thanks to the generosity of the American people, and no thanks to government.  The least I can do is tell you the truth about government entitlement.

What the Constitution has done for me

Thursday, June 20th, 2013


The Constitution brought to light something I’ve never heard connected with the Constitution, something  I’d like to pass on at this crucial time.

 I was banned from Tea Party Patriots.  The director was receiving lots of complaints.  Just yesterday, on the Institute for Noetic Sciences discussion forum, since no one was discussing what I was discussing, I was asked to leave.  The director of the forum was receiving lots of complaints.

Peter Russell is a Noetic Sciences stalwart.  On the back cover of Russell’s From Science to God, “is the story of Peter Russell’s lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness….We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. The result is a universe in which science and spirit no longer conflict.” On the front cover of From Science to God is an image of Multnomah Falls.  

Coincidentally, on the first date with my wife, Karen, on May 18, 1980, we hiked the trail to Multnomah Falls, on the day that nearby Mt. St. Helens erupted. The eruption was one of many signs in my life.  The legendary Phoenix, after a life of five or six centuries, immolates itself on a pyre and from the ashes rises to live another period of years.  The Phoenix legend is seen as an emblem of immortality or of reborn hope; a person or thing that has been restored after suffering a calamity or of annihilation.  Beautiful Crater Lake was the scene of an eruption forty times as great as the Mt. St. Helens eruption. And so it was that after studying my Constitution and acting, the calamity my life had become became beautiful—because I acted.

When I met my wife, I had the feeling that I was meeting someone I’d known.  On our first date, on the trail to Multnomah Falls, while sitting on a log chatting, Karen blurted out, “I want ours to be a platonic relationship.”  At that very moment, we observed the sky in the northwest turn black.  Fifteen years later, Karen handed me one of those computer generated compatibility reports. In it, I read, “The Platonic thing was there from the start, and there is a sense of the brotherly and sisterly between you.”

Under “The Great Awakening,” Chapter 9 in From Science to God, Christopher Fry’s quote:

Thank God our time is now, when wrong

Comes up to face us everywhere.

Never leave us ‘til we take

The longest stride of soul man ever took.

Affairs are now soul size.

The enterprise is exploration into God.

“These decisions are based on human thinking, human feelings, and human values,” writes Russel, “which in turn are influenced by our needs to be in control, and to bolster an ever-vulnerable sense of self. Inner issues such as these lie at the root of our problems as much as any external factors.”

In Chapter 9 of In Earth as It Is in Heaven 2012,  my book, “The Completed God-Self,”  “9 is selflessness and compassion. Encompassing a love for all, it desires to apply its energy to universal service.”

In Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image,”  as I see it, our image the highest level of conscious awareness in the universe, would it not be?  Why would that be off-topic in a new age discussion forum?

In Genesis 3:22, “And the Lord God said, Behold the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil.” No other life form on our planet knows good and evil.  It seems that our archetype is the highest form of conscious awareness in the universe.

In a post in Noetic Sciences, I read that the worst thing we can do is connect parapsychology with astrology.  Peter Russell gives us an excellent history of astrology in his book.  An astrologer told me the first thing he noted in my chart was that I’m psychic; that I can envision the future.  In Numerology and The Divine Triangle, under Path of Destiny, my number 7 means  “you psychically separate the true from the false and can discover and reveal some of the mysteries of life to a waiting world.  This idea came from people who lived thousands of years ago, before they had all the diversions we have today.

People who lived thousands of years ago predicted the coming of the king of Jews. In Luke 21, the return of the Lord in glory, Jesus: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, was that simply a figure of speech? That is for you to decide.  The Jews did not accept Jesus as their Messiah.  Their promised land is about to be taken from them again, and by people who don’t accept Jesus.  And America, the former light of the world, is a contributor to never ending holy war.

Astrology says that we are entering the Age of Aquarius and a time when we become our brother’s keeper.  I’m Aquarius rising. I’m not a Christian. I’m not even religious. Without  doctrines and dogmas to cloud my thinking, I believe we can live together in peace.  I believe Jesus is my savior and redeemer.  It all connects with my Constitution.

We don’t yet know reality. But who am I to say?  Peter Russell and I say “we must reconsider some of our fundamental assumptions about  the nature of reality….with little interest in spiritual matters to an explorer of consciousness who now begins to appreciate what the great spiritual teachings have been saying for thousands of years.”    

In Luke 21:36, Jesus admonishes us. “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”  Yes, it is a hard sell.  Everyone thinks I’m nuts, but my dreams have come true.  I don’t think we can all say that.






I Have a Dream

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

images[3]In the Bible there are flying chariots and angels flapping about.There must be some other place where intelligent life exists. Millions of people have seen flying saucers.

I’ve been kicked out of an environmentalist group, out to save the world. I’ve been banded from Tea Party Patriots, out to save the world.  And now the Institute of Noetic Sciences has asked that I not offend their discussions with my off-topic views.    

Astrologers say I’m way ahead of my time.  It is interesting that one of Noetic Sciences’ stalwarts, Peter Russell, who wrote  From Science to God, has an excellent history on ancient astrology in his book.  Noetic Sciences says that the worst thing we can do is to associate parapsychology with astrology.

America’s governing body is, once again, examining the IRS. Interestingly, nothing has yet been revealed. The questions and answers are carefully organized to say nothing, other than the IRS is a villain.  What else is new?  There is a growing number of government scandals, and what has been revealed?  There are millions of flying saucer sightings government waves off.

We’ve got numerous debating groups in the United States, each with its own agenda.  None fit my thinking.  We’ve got numerous religions. None fit my thinking.   The law in practice doesn’t fit my thinking.

  YouTube  tells me that Hitler connects with flying saucers.  He was into the occult.  He believed that technical information was available in the land where Aryans lived, at the beginning of civilization.  Millions of years and suddenly civilization? YouTube says the proof is there that Hitler had flying saucers.  I never heard this before. 

It turns out that there is much we don’t know, things the authorities would just as soon we never know.

Senator Rand Paul, asks: “Would you let fear alone relinquish your guarantee of due process.  I didn’t. I legally attacked the United States.  On their own turf, I defeated my enemy with only this going for me: faith in myself. How could it be that a nobody beat the powerful IRS?  With a life that had little hope, it turned it into one most can only dream, but I’m not wanted.  Well, good luck!
