Michael Ellis and I continue to work long hours into the night, on holidays, and through the weekends to file new cases and meet deadlines for filing pleadings in the active ones.

We do this for one reason only: to restore the Rule of Law in America.

This blog post contains information on the following topics:

A. Status of Cases
B. Judicial Misconduct
C. Harold R. Stanley Criminal Case

A. Status of Cases

To date, we have filed, or assisted in the filing of, twelve (12) cases in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.  Some are now in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit:

01 14-CV-471    Ellis v. Commissioner, et al.  (Dismissed; Appealed; Dismissed; Need Funds for Supreme Court Petition)
02 15-CV-1288  McNeil v. Commissioner, et al.  (Dismissed; Appealed: Case 16-5233)
03 15-CV-2039  DePolo v. Ciraolo-Klepper, et al.  (Dismissed; Appealed: Case 16-5308)
04 16-CV-031    Ellis v. Jarvis, et al.  (Dismissed; Appealed: Case 16-5219)
05 16-CV-420    Dwaileebe v. Martineau, et al.  (Active; Assigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper)
06 16-CV-729    Ellis v. Langer, et al.  (Dismissed; Appealed: Case 16-5214)
07 16-CV-1053  Crumpacker v. Ciraolo-Klepper, et al.  (CounterClaim Filed by USA; CrossCounterClaim Filed by Crumpacker/Ellis/McNeil; Reassigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper)
08 16-CV-1384  Morris v. McMonagle, et al.  (Active; Reassigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper)
09 16-CV-1458  McGarvin v. McMonagle, et al.  (Active; Reassigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper)
10 16-CV-1768  Podgorny v. McMonagle, et al.  (Active; Reassigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper)
11 16-CV-2089  Norma DeOrio v. Ciraolo-Klepper, et al.  (Active; Filed October 17, 2016)
12 16-CV-2313  Ellis & McNeil v Jackson, Cooper, et al.  (Active; Filed November 18, 2016)

To give you an idea what is involved in filing and advancing these cases through the judicial system, I have prepared an Excel spreadsheet of all activity since August 2015, when I filed my case.  Click the links below and take a few moments to grasp the enormous tasks that Michael, I and the other courageous Plaintiffs have accomplished.  For your convenience, I have sorted the spreadsheet two ways:

By case number:  http://bit.ly/2h02dti

By the date the documents were filed:  http://bit.ly/2ge56YU

B. Judicial Misconduct

With each response by the Department of Justice attorneys and the District Court judges, another layer of fraud and judicial misconduct is revealed.

Here is one example:

16-cv-1053 Crumpacker v Ciraolo-Klepper, et al.

Open the spreadsheet sorted by case number, and scroll to Case No. 7 in Column A.  There, you will see that Mark Crumpacker’s Original Complaint was filed on June 6, 2016, assigned to Judge Tanya S. Chutkan and given Case No. 1:16-cv-1053 (TSC).  Notice that the document is styled “ORIGINAL COMPLAINT with Declaration and Evidence Appended and MOTION TO CERTIFY and CONSOLIDATE CLASS ACTION”.  On August 15, 2016, the DoJ filed an “Answer and Counterclaim”, naming Crumpacker, Ellis and McNeil as Defendants.  In other words, the Government is now counter-suing the three of us and attempting to enjoin (stop) Michael and me from assisting Plaintiffs in filing any more cases.  On September 12, 2016, Michael filed our “Answer and Cross-CounterClaim”.  On September 27, 2016, the case was reassigned to Judge Christopher R. Cooper.  On October 3, 2016, the DoJ filed a “Notice of Related Cases and Reassignment to Judge Christopher R. Cooper” for 16-CV-1384  Morris v. McMonagle, et al., 16-CV-1458  McGarvin v. McMonagle, et al., and 16-CV-1768  Podgorny v. McMonagle, et al.  We later learned that this decision was made in secret and without notice by the District Court’s Calendar and Case Management Committee.  Dwaileebe v. Martineau, et al. (16-CV-420) had already been assigned to Judge Cooper, so, now, five (5) cases had been assigned to him.

So, what’s the problem?  Here’s the problem.  In all cases filed, the Plaintiffs’ Original Complaint included a “Motion to Certify and Consolidate Class Action”.  With this unilateral action, however, the Court consolidated five (5) cases under one (1) judge without certifying them as a class action.  We have reason to believe that the Court did this for the purpose of having Judge Cooper issue a “Summary Judgment” to dismiss all five (5) cases without ever ruling on the core allegations, thereby, establishing precedent for the dismissal of all future cases filed.

On October 12, 2016, each of the five (5) plaintiffs filed an “Objection to Consolidation Without Certification and Motion to Recuse Judge Christopher R. Cooper”, a “Revised Motion for Summary Judgment”, and a “Motion to Certify Class and Appoint Counsel”.

Finally, on October 21, 2016, Judge Cooper issued a “Consolidation and Case Management Order”.  In this Order, Judge Cooper DENIED the “Objection to Consolidation Without Certification and Motion to Recuse Judge Christopher R. Cooper”.  The Order also DENIED the “Motion to Sua Sponte Sanction DoJ Attorneys” in Dwaileebe v. Martineau, et al. (16-CV-420).  Most shocking, however, is the final paragraph in which Judge Cooper states “It is FURTHER ORDERED that the Counterclaim Defendants in Crumpacker, Case No. 16-1053 – Michael Ellis, Robert McNeil, and Mark Crumpacker – shall file either an Answer or a dispositive motion with respect to those counterclaims on or before November 18, 2016, on the Crumpacker docket only.”

The problem is this.  Judge Cooper ordered us to file an answer to the Governments counterclaim by November 18, 2016, but, we had already done so on September 12, 2016.

I sent a letter to the U.S. District Court Clerk’s office requesting a copy of the Crumpacker docket sheet and, when I received it, our Answer was missing.  I then called the Clerk’s office to inquire about it and was told that all documents had been transferred from Judge Chutkan’s chambers to Judge Cooper’s chambers and that’s where our “Answer and Cross-Counterclaim” was then.

It was then that we realized that Judge Cooper was withholding documents to keep them from being entered into the record.

These instances of judicial misconduct are what spurred Michael and I to file our latest case – 16-CV-2313  Ellis and McNeil v. Jackson, Cooper, et al. in which we are suing Judge Amy Berman Jackson, Judge Christopher R. Cooper, Judge Padmanabhan Srinivasan, DoJ Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General – Tax Division – Caroline Ciraolo-Klepper, and DoJ Trial Attorney Ryan O’Connor McMonagle in their personal capacities, and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and two (2) Unknown-named IRS/DoJ attorneys, in their official capacities, for committing Misprision of Felony (a violation of 18 U.S.C. §4), Conspiracies to Defraud the United States (a violation of 18 U.S.C. §371) and Obstruction of the Due Administration of Justice (a violation of 18 U.S.C. §1503).

That case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on November 18, 2016 and assigned to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.

C. Harold R. Stanley Criminal Case

Since my  November 28th blog, Harold Stanley’s “Notice of Appeal” was perfected in the U.S. District Court, which removed that case from the Court’s jurisdiction and sent it to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, Missouri.  Therefore, the “Rule 33 Motion for New Trial” is no longer the correct document to file.  So, Michael and I revised that document into what is now styled as “Motion for Summary Reversal Based on Newly Discovered Evidence & Motion to Set Immediate Hearing”.

Harold’s wife, Lorane, mailed this Motion to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals on December 5, 2016 to arrive in the Clerk’s office by noon on December 6th.  We pray that the Appeals Court will reverse Harold’s conviction and order his release from prison based on the newly discovered evidence, which proves he was convicted based on fraudulent documents created by the IRS.

You can read the PDF version of the motion (160 pages w/Exhibits – 11.6MB) here: http://bit.ly/2gYvvsl

D. Third Interview with John B. Wells

On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Michael and I were interviewed on Skype for more than one (1) hour by John B. Wells on his program “Caravan to Midnight”.

If you missed seeing the interview on YouTube, you can listen to the audio here:  http://bit.ly/2g8LCSP

E. Pete Hendrickson Arrives on the Scene

On December 2, 2016, I received this email from Pete Hendrickson, author of the book “Cracking the Code” and owner of the website http://www.losthorizons.com.


Mr. McNeil, my name is Pete Hendrickson. One of my readers recently sent me a Rule 33 motion and supporting docs that you apparently prepared for a Mr. Harold Stanley.

Nice work, it appears. I’ve only had the chance for a relatively cursory read-through so far, but I am very familiar with most everything being discussed and argued, and like what I think I am seeing.

In particular I find your analyses of the IMF manipulations very compelling. I mean to go through the docs more thoroughly, but if they hold up as I suspect they will, I think you’ve done a great job of exposing and presenting a deeply-corrupt and highly significant sustained and institutionalized fraud.

I would like your permission to post the docs as part of an article discussing your fraud revelations in my Monday newsletter. (The lead page of the bi-weekly can be found at http://www.losthorizons.com/Newsletter.htm; the upcoming Monday edition will be a “mid-edition update” which is published every other week.) May I do so?

Best Regards,
-Pete Hendrickson


As mentioned above, since Mr Stanley’s “Notice of Appeal” was perfected in the U.S. District Court, the Rule 33 Motion for New Trial is no longer valid.  So, Michael and I revised that document into what is now styled as “Motion for Summary Reversal Based on Newly Discovered Evidence & Motion to Set Immediate Hearing”.

On December 4th, Pete sent another email saying  “Thank you both. Btw, for reasons of the available time to prepare and the interest in maximum effectiveness and attention, my article is going to move from tomorrow’s mid-edition update to a prominent placement in next Monday’s new edition.”

So, look for the article in the December 12th newsletter.

Obviously, Michael and I are very happy that Pete took notice of our work and is willing to spread the word through his vast network.

F. Request for Donations

In every case, Michael and I spend days, nights, weekends, and holidays assisting each Plaintiff with his/her case, preparing the Original Complaint, organizing the evidence, and putting together two (2) Declarations to be filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.  I provide specific instructions to ensure a successful filing.  In addition to printer paper and ink for twelve (12) copies, the Court requires a $400.00 fee to file each case.

When a case is dismissed in District Court, we also assist each Plaintiff in the preparation of his/her case for filing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, requiring additional expenditure of time and effort.  Again, in addition to printer paper and ink for twelve (12) copies, the Court of Appeals requires a $505.00 fee to file each case.

This is a labor of love and we do not charge one penny for our assistance, but, time is an irreplaceable asset and our knowledge and experience provides value to our Plaintiffs, and, if we prevail in the Courts, will provide liberty and prosperity to ALL Americans at the level our ancestors enjoyed.

For the period October 31 thru December 5, 2016, I have received donations of $1,850.00, but have spent $3,812.05, creating a deficit of <$1,962.05>, most of which resides on my credit card.

Here is the link to an Excel spreadsheet detailing the donations and expenditures:  http://bit.ly/2g2N8df

In the next two weeks, we will file new documents in the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit relating to 16-5214 Ellis v. Jarvis, et al.  This is an important filing that will be sent to every judge in that Court, requiring twenty (20) copies of a 200-page document to be printed, wire-bound with card stock front and back covers, and mailed.  We estimate the total cost to be in the range of $2,000.00.  If 20 people donate $100.00 each, that goal will easily be met.  Of course, you are free to donate more than that, if you are able.

I humbly ask each of you to search your heart, and pocketbook, and make a monetary donation to the cause of liberty.  No amount is too small or great, and will be appreciated more than you know.

If you are so moved, please contact me here for instructions.


It is important for every American to understand that most of the loss of liberty we are experiencing began with laws passed by Congress over the last 100 years, and are being perpetuated today by the very people we elected to represent our interests, but who are failing to do so.

The Internal Revenue Code consists of more than 75,000 pages and is so complex that no American can possible know what is in it, or, more importantly, when they are violating a provision of it.  This provides the ideal environment for tyranny and oppression to flourish, the examples of which we present in these cases.

“We the People” will never be truly free until both the corporate and individual income taxes are eliminated and the 16th Amendment to the Constitution is repealed.  My case, and the others, clear the way for those events to happen.

Should we prevail, it will mean the end of the suffering experienced by millions of so-called “non-filers” at the hands of the IRS.  It will also mean the door is open for millions of Americans to participate, without fear of harm, in the coming “21st Century American Revolution“, which is a good, old-fashioned tax revolt.

We are the rightful masters of ALL levels of government, and we can put this out-of-control Federal government back into its Constitutional box by simply defunding it and, in the process, creating a smaller, more efficient government built on the solid, everlasting foundation of the Constitution, sound accounting principles, and economic law.

Please continue to educate yourselves about the fraud being committed every day by the IRS, Department of Justice, and the Courts in the enforcement of the income tax, and spread this website to all of your social media outlets.

Do it so you, your family, and future generations of Americans can begin to live at the level of liberty and prosperity the Founding Fathers intended.

Thank you.

In liberty,

Hi Bob, this is my internet ID. In reality we share the same last Name. Im related to the McNeils from eastern (thumb area) of Michigan.

It is my conclusion after being in the tax honesty movement since 1988, that the court system is a major part of the problem, the IRS being the other part. But there is a way to fix the IRS. I am demanding the ENTIRE US Treasury Department be placed under the Paperwork Reduction act with no exceptions. This will force them to clean up their act and make what they do more transparent. Without it, I fear they will continue to do what they want to whom they want because they can.
