As I have stated many times, most, if not all, of the encroachments on our rights as Americans stem directly from laws passed by Congress…..the very body “We the People” elect to protect those rights.

Our right to travel is one of those fundamental rights.

The following is a timeline detailing my experience with renewing my passport:

June 14, 2018 – I mailed my Form DS82 Passport Renewal Application, along with $110.00, to the U.S. State Department’s National Passport Processing Center in Irving, Texas.

June 27, 2018 – I received an unsigned letter from the “Customer Service Department” at the Western Passport Center in Sterling, Virginia stating “you are ineligible to receive passport services because the Department of Treasury’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) certified that you have a seriously delinquent tax debt.”

The letter cited 22 C.F.R. 51.60(a)(3) as the authority:

51.60 – Denial of Passports
(a) The Department may not issue a passport, except a passport for direct return to the United States, in any case which the Department determines or is informed by a competent authority that:
(3) The applicant is certified by the Secretary of the Treasury as having a seriously delinquent tax debt as described in 26 U.S.C. 7345.

********************

NOTE: Here is some background information I found in this 2016 article, describing the genesis of this statute. “Ten years ago Congress passed the “Emergency Supplemental Appropriation for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief” [HR 1268, PL 109-13 (2005). which included the “Real ID Act.” Initially, the Real ID Act was to go into effect for the first time in January 2016. It would require a passport to travel domestically, depending on an individual’s state of residence. By an announcement on January 8, 2016, the Director of Homeland Security announced a delay in the implementation of the Real ID Act to January 22, 2018 to allow fuller compliance by all the states.

It was then included in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation [FAST] Act, (“H.R. 22”), which was signed into law on December 4, 2015. [PL 114-94, Title XXXII Offsets, Subtitle A Tax Provisions, Section 32101(a).] The new law is effective on the date of enactment,[IRC § 7345(i).] so this is now part of the federal tax law.

H. R. 22 added new Internal Revenue Code (hereafter “IRC” or the “Code”). Section 7345, “Revocation or Denial or Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies” requiring the Secretary of State, on certification by the Treasury, to deny, revoke, or limit the passport of any person who the IRS certifies as owing in excess of $50,000 (referred to as a “seriously delinquent tax debt”). [IRC § 7345(a).] The seriously delinquent debt requirement of $50,000 is adjusted annually for inflation [IRC § 7345(f)], but includes penalties and interest. [IRC § 7345(b).]”

********************

July 7, 2018 – Since my passport renewal application was denied, I sent a letter to the State Department’s Western Passport Center asking them to refund my $110.00 application fee.

July 13, 2018 – The State Department withdrew my passport application, but, refused to refund my application fee stating “by law,  the passport execution and application fees are non-refundable”.

July 18, 2018 – Since 22 C.F.R. 51.60(a)(3) requires that the IRS “certify” to the State Department that I have a “seriously delinquent tax debt”, I sent a letter requesting a copy of “the signed, sworn certification” provided by the IRS.

July 25, 2018 – The Western Passport Center’s “Customer Service Department” responded to my July 18th letter by reiterating that passport execution and application fees are non-refundable, but, it failed to provide, or even mention, the certificate I had requested.

August 2, 2018 – By this time, I was beginning to wonder if any such certificate even existed, as the evidence in ten lawsuits had proven that Substitutes For Returns are never prepared by the IRS. So, again, I requested a copy of “the signed, sworn certification” provided by the IRS.

August 9, 2018 – The Western Passport Center’s “Customer Service Department” responded by saying “As stated in our letter to you on June 28, 2018, neither this passport agency not the Department of State has information concerning your seriously delinquent tax debt. You may request that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) review this matter by contacting them at……”.

August 17, 2018 – At this point, I decided to make a formal request for the certificate by filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the IRS.

August 17, 2018 – In addition, I decided to make a formal request for the certificate by filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department.

August 23, 2018 – The IRS responded promptly with this: “You asked for a copy of the sworn signed document provided to the United States Department of State by the Department of Treasury’s IRS certifying that the requester has a serious delinquent tax debt. This is a computer-generated transaction with no associated paper documents. Therefore, there are no documents specifically responsive to your request.”

September 18, 2018 – Eric F. Stein, Director, State Department responded with this: “The Department of State, Office of Information Programs and Services (IPS) received your FOIA request on 8-22-2018. Your FOIA request was assigned the tracking number at the top of this letter. Please include the tracking number in all future communications concerning this FOIA request. In addition, we have place your request in the complex category. This Office has adopted a first in/first out practice of processing all incoming requests. Your request has been placed in chronological order based on the date of receipt and will be handled as quickly as possible.” Mr. Stein then provided a telephone number and email address for my use if I wanted to contact the FOIA Public Liaison.

October 19, 2018 – So, one month went by with no response, so, I sent an email to the State Department requesting the status of my FOIA request. In that email, I also asked them to “please explain why my request was placed in the ‘complex’ category, when I am only asking for a copy of the ‘sworn, signed copy by the Department of Treasury’s Internal Revenue Service ‘certifying’ that Robert Allen McNeil has a seriously delinquent tax debt’, which is preventing me from having my passport renewed.” Now that the IRS has admitted no such document exists, it will be interesting to see how Mr. Stein responds.

So, let’s recap how this ties in with our lawsuits:

  1. In more than ten federal lawsuits, we have provided evidence straight from the IRS that it falsifies its internal and public-facing records to make it appear that it prepared Substitutes for Returns (SFRs) on certain conflicting dates for those unwitting victims it labels as “non-filers”;
  2. When copies of the SFRs are requested by FOIA, the IRS’ response is: “This is a computer-generated transaction with no associated paper documents. Therefore, there no documents specifically responsive to your request.”
  3. In truth, the IRS never prepares SFRs on any date, although its records indicate that it does;
  4. This is proof, in itself, that the alleged income tax liability is based on fraud;
  5. The falsification of federal records is proscribed as a crime at 18 U.S.C. 1001;
  6. These falsified IRS records form the basis for the issuance Notices of Deficiency (NODs), Notices of Federal Tax Lien (NOFTLs), wage garnishments, levies, property seizures, etc.;
  7. The Department of Justice (DoJ) uses these falsified documents to indict, prosecute, convict and imprison otherwise innocent Americans;
  8. The alleged “seriously delinquent tax debt” preventing Americans from applying for or renewing a passport is based on these falsified documents;
  9. The IRS’ admission that no sworn, signed certificate of this tax debt exists is further evidence of the falsification of federal records;
  10. Should the State Department admit that no such certificate exists, this fact will make it complicit in the IRS fraud.

I will post a follow-up blog to let you know how it responds.

Until then, you should know that Michael Ellis, I and the Co-Plaintiffs in our lawsuits continue to battle the monumental IRS/DoJ/Judicial corruption in the courts.

Stay tuned for further updates.

In liberty,

Bob McNeil


As you can imagine, I am frequently contacted by people all over America who are being harassed and impoverished by the unlawful and corrupt actions of the IRS, DoJ and the Courts.

One such American is Russ McAdams, who lives in California. To date, Russ’ Social Security checks have been garnished by more than $12,000.00 as a result of an IRS Notice of Levy. Although he has pleaded with the Social Security Administration for relief, he has gotten none. Their only response has been “Take it up with the IRS.” Read the rest of this entry »

In my March 14, 2018 blog, I described the events of March 1st, when Michael Ellis and I appeared before Judge Christopher R. Cooper, in Washington, D.C., to show cause why we should NOT be held in contempt for allegedly violating his April 19, 2017 “Order of Permanent Injunction” against us.  At the end of that hearing, Judge Cooper chose NOT to hold us in contempt.

With the cloud of contempt of court proceedings hanging over our heads since September of 2017, the moment finally arrived for Michael Ellis and me to travel to Washington, D.C. to appear before Judge Christopher Cooper on March 1, 2018 to show cause why we should NOT be held in contempt of court for allegedly violating his April 19, 2017 nationwide, permanent injunction against us.

The two, post-injunction, declaratory judgment lawsuits we filed (17-1720 McNeil, et al v. Harvey, et al and 17-2602 McNeil, et al v. Brown, et al) are what precipitated the DoJ’s Motion for Order to Show Cause. Read the rest of this entry »

February 8, 2018 – Request for Donations; Update on Cases

As I have stated many times, the purpose of this website is to educate you, the American people, about the corruption, collusion and violations of multiple criminal statutes by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) personnel, Department of Justice (DoJ) attorneys, and the judges in the Federal District Court and Appeals Court, relating to the enforcement of the income tax.

The IRS-supplied evidence supporting our lawsuits, the disingenuous pleadings filed by the DoJ attorneys in response, as well as the faulty dismissal and affirming “Orders” issued by the judges, provide incontrovertible proof that our claims of record falsification and subsequent concealment of that falsification are true. I encourage each of you to read the documents associated with these cases, download and save them, and spread the word to everyone on all of your social media platforms.

On Friday, January 26, 2018, I will be interviewed from 3:00pm to 3:55pm CST by Nicholas Lanholdt on his program “Christian Revolt Long Overdue” (CRELOV), which is broadcast on Liberty Works Radio Network (LWRN). CRELOV airs live at 3pm CST, and is rebroadcast that night (Friday) at 9pm CST, then again Monday morning at 8am CST. Read the rest of this entry »

Bob McNeil will appear as a guest, for one hour, on John B. Wells’ program “Caravan to Midnight”.

This recorded video interview will take place on Friday, January 19, 2018 from 11:15am until 12:15pm Central Standard Time and will be broadcast at a later date.  Here is a link to the Caravan to Midnight website where you can find the broadcast schedule:

https://www.caravantomidnight.com/

Caravan to Midnight is a subscription site with several options for access, beginning at $10.00 for 1-month, but, there is also an option to purchase individual episodes that interest you.

The main topic of the interview will be my, and Michael Ellis’, 3-year battle against IRS computer fraud and record falsification in the enforcement of the individual income tax; the many lawsuits that have been filed to stop the record falsification scheme; the unethical actions and violations of criminal statutes by the Department of Justice (DoJ) attorneys in Washington, D.C. to dismiss our lawsuits; incidences of judicial misconduct to manipulate dockets and suppress evidence; and the collusion between the DoJ attorneys, Federal District Judges and Appeals Court Judges to ensure that the fraud continues.

We will also discuss my 2018 candidacy for U.S. Senator from Texas. I am an independent, Constitutional conservative whose main issue is the repeal of both the corporate and individual income taxes, replacing them with the two original taxing methods written into the Constitution by the Founders in 1788, and still available for our use today. I am running against the incumbent, Ted Cruz – Republican, and, while we may hold similar views on many issues, my tax policy, alone, distinguishes me from him, and all other candidates.

What is my tax policy? To abolish both the corporate and individual income taxes, then fund a limited Federal government using the two original taxing methods written into the U. S. Constitution by the Founders in Article I, Section 8, Clause 1“Indirect Taxes” and Article I, Section 9, Clause 4“Direct Taxes”.  After all, these two methods funded the Federal government for the first 125 years of America’s existence.

To set ALL Americans free from the 100+ year-old, complicated, unfair, corrupt, progressive income tax system, I have written two powerful documents: The Proclamation of Freedom (for the President to sign) and the Economic Freedom Act (for Congress to pass).

The whole world needs to hear this information, so, please spread the word on all your social media.

Thank you.

The main topic of discussion was our 3-year battle against IRS computer fraud and record falsification in the enforcement of the individual income tax; the many lawsuits that have been filed to stop the record falsification scheme; the unethical actions and violations of criminal statutes by the Department of Justice (DoJ) attorneys in Washington, D.C. to dismiss our lawsuits; incidences of judicial misconduct to manipulate dockets and suppress evidence; and the collusion between the DoJ attorneys, Federal District Judges and Appeals Court Judges to ensure that the fraud continues.

In the last 13 minutes of the interview, we discussed my 2018 candidacy for U.S. Senator from Texas. I am an independent, Constitutional conservative whose main issue is the repeal of both the corporate and individual income taxes, replacing them with the two original taxing methods written into the Constitution by the Founders in 1788, and still available for our use today.
