We do NOT spam. Various multi-level marketers & other criminals have recently sent out spam impersonating us, & having our return email address, so that people would complain about spam and cause us to be shut down (a/k/a "joe job"). These multi-level marketers and other criminals have engaged in this form of cyber-terrorism because our telling the truth about their fraudulent schemes was hurting their ability to sell to new victims. Fortunately, our ISP now recognizes that these fake spams are bogus and ignores them, and additionally we are duplicating this site on numerous other servers (including "hardened" servers as well as our own proprietary servers) so that we cannot be harmed by these multi-level marketers and other criminals. Death to Spammers!

Quatlosers Hall of Shame

Eddie Kahn

These special-editions Quatloos commemorates those who have made a name for themselves in their particular business endeavors.

100 Q
Eddie Kahn

Our 100Q Woopoo chips commemorate infamous tax scam artists. Eddie Kahn of “American Rights Litigators” represents the Hee-Haw contingent of the tax protestor movement. “Without any doubt, the most stupid of all the ‘professional’ tax protesters. Mr. Kahn's ‘arguments’ are so utterly juvenile and worthless as to barely worth the space I am using to type this sentence.” ~

Eddie caters to the dumbest of the dumb, and his theories for not paying taxes are thus the dumbest of the dumb. Eddie has claimed variously that he can’t find the Form 1040, that the IRS was not created by Congress and apparently just materialized out of the blue, that the IRS doesn’t have the power to collect taxes, that the United States doesn’t actually include the states, but is actually limited to the District of Columbia, that all the money collected from taxes goes to the International Monetary Fund (Eddie doesn’t say who pays for our aircraft carriers, but what the hey), and that so long as keep out of the Social Security Program that you’ll never have to file taxes. All of these theories have lost in court, see Tax Protestor Dummies. It seems that if somebody has tried a theory, lost, and then gone to jail that Eddie will then take it and advocate it as gospel.

But don’t take Eddie’s hick approach to mean that he’s not an innovator. Eddie has come up with the concept of the “Nonenforcement Pocket Commissions” (whatever the heck those are) to justify saying “No!” when the IRS comes a’collecting. Just tell dem Revenuers that you know all about “Nonenforcement Pocket Commissions” from Eddie, and the IRS agents will get a sad look on their face and just turn and go away. Uh-huh, yeah, uh – Anybody want to buy some oceanfront property in Albuquerque from us?

But wait! Eddie claims expertise not only in U.S. taxation, but also in taxation of Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Guess What? According to Eddie you’re not liable for taxes in those countries either! Good golly Ms. Molly, what will Eddie come up with next?

Where does Eddie make his money? Like the other tax scammers, Eddie sells seminars and the typical tax protestor junk. A typical Eddie Kahn flyer is attached.

Treasury agents raid office in Mount Dora

A lawsuit said a ministry sells tax programs showing how to hide income.

Eddie Kahn's Office Raided by U.S. Treasury Department

By Martin E. Comas | Sentinel Staff Writer
Posted February 17, 2004

MOUNT DORA -- Federal agents with the U.S. Treasury Department have searched a second-story office suite at 440 S. Donnelly St., carrying out boxes filled with documents and computer equipment, Mount Dora police said Monday.

Shop owners in the area said the office is run by Guiding Light of God Ministries, headed by Eddie Kahn and his wife, Kathleen, of Sorrento.

Because of Monday's federal holiday, federal officials were unavailable for comment.

In December, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the couple and several others, saying the group has been selling fraudulent tax programs through the ministry, showing customers how to hide income and assets to avoid paying federal taxes and how to obstruct IRS investigations.

The group, according to the lawsuit, also sold counterfeit checks to
pay taxes, plus harassing letters to the IRS. Federal investigators estimated 11 checks totaling more than $2.2 million were sold.

Last August, Kahn transformed his business, called American Rights Litigators, into the Guiding Light of God Ministries. The Justice Department said the ministry was a business, indistinguishable except in name from American Rights Litigators. The organization, according to the suit, is also led by Milton Hargraves Baxley II, a lawyer in Gainesville, and Bryan Malatesta, a certified public accountant in Cleburne, Texas.

The Kahns did not return phone calls Monday.

According to his Web site, Eddie Kahn says he does not operate a business, but a Christian ministry, described as a corporation with more than 4,000 clients. His Web site stated that the IRS is not a lawful organization and that taxes do not finance the U.S. government, but are diverted to the International Monetary Fund.

On Monday, a receptionist at the Mount Dora office would not comment on the lawsuit or on the ministry.

Notice of Academic Deficiency


There just seems to be an endless number of people out here on the internet, who, without credentials, positive accomplishments, or evidence of prior experience or knowledge of their work on the Internet, and who also believe that they have some argument "worthy" of hearing by the federal courts, will ask that YOU send them some money. There are in fact SO MANY of these people, that I could spend every day for the rest of my life arguing against and exposing them. This will do nothing but serve the wishes of the Treasury Department.

I have to learn to trust that individuals can be responsible for themselves, can show prudence, and judge that which is sent to them over the World Wide Web.

When it comes to IRS lawsuits, I can only share a few points of certainty regarding the issues of lawsuits.


A: The Federal Courts do NOT want to rule in YOUR favor because;

B: No Federal Judge wants to be the Federal Judge who collapses the House of Cards known as the Economic Stabilization Program.

C: The Government and the Judge will use Rule 12(b)(6) to throw your case out at the drop of a hat. That rule is: Failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted.

D: The Courts and the Government will look for the weakest point of your argument and they will rule on that one and ignore the rest of the issues.

So, if someone is sending an e-mail regarding wanting money from you to help support a case where there is no specifically damaged plaintiff and there are multiple arguments, I will not respond to such e-mails.

If you are seriously considering spreading news of or financially supporting the ideas of such people who have discovered the Internet as a means of conning people out of money, instead of sending me their e-mail please write back to them and ask them what their credentials are, what results have they had, what is their area of expertise and experience, and do they have references from anyone that you might hold in esteem.

This how the Establishments of Academia control discussions and discourse. (References are important.) And believe me folks, if someone out there was doing something that you needed to know about, I would have told you already. And if they don't have the guts to come to me directly and seek counsel with people like me who have results, they certainly are NOT worth your time and effort.

NITE has VERY strict standards about following the letter of the Law. The people and organizations listed below use arguments that the courts have already deemed frivolous, and make all sorts of claims with no results to show for themselves. While some have truth mixed in with lies, there is just enough truth to get people tangled into their web. Some of these people are academic plagiarists who have been using NITE's work product and claiming it as their own and / or intermingling our argument with frivolous res judicata patriot arguments. Many of these people / organizations are networked (i.e. working together). A few of them are SHAM trust salesmen / women.

People who do not seem to understand have not seen as many people as Mr. Bell has seen, get hurt. They lose their property, jobs, paychecks, and / or families. They obviously do not have the discernment to understand how vitally important this issue is, and how we MUST stay on point or lose.

There is no room for those who claim it is their 1st Amendment Right for supporting people who are espousing such res judicata arguments. The courts and the Kotmair case made it clear. Guilt by association is NOW supported by CASE LAW.

Florida Man Sells Counterfeit Checks and Other Scams
With Help from Florida Lawyer and Texas Accountant

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Justice Department today announced that it has filed a lawsuit asking a federal court to stop several alleged tax scams. According to court papers filed in the case, the scams include selling counterfeit checks, setting up sham corporations to help customers hide income and assets, and helping customers obstruct Internal Revenue Service investigations and collections. The civil injunction case, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, is part of the Justice Department’s nationwide crackdown on promoters who sell fraudulent tax advice and help customers evade taxes.

The suit names as defendants Eddie and Kathleen (“Kookie”) Kahn of Sorrento, Florida; their businesses Milton Hargraves Baxley II, a lawyer from Gainesville, Florida; David Stephen Lokietz of Mt. Dora, Florida and Bryan Malatesta, a certified public accountant in Cleburne, Texas. Eddie Kahn’s businesses - American Rights Litigators, Guiding Light of God Ministries and Eddie Kahn and Associates – are also named as defendants.

“Tax scam promoters cheat the federal government and all law-abiding Americans when they encourage and enable others to violate the tax laws,” said Eileen J. O’Connor, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Tax Division. “They also cheat their customers, who can expect to pay back taxes, interest and penalties, as well as face criminal prosecution for tax evasion and for presenting counterfeit documents. The Justice Department is committed to shutting down tax evasion scams at their source.”

The complaint and other court papers filed today allege that Eddie Kahn and two of his businesses sell counterfeit checks and bonds for customers to send to the Internal Revenue Service. According to the complaint, the federal government has thus far received bogus checks totaling at least $2.2 million. Kahn also allegedly sells sham entities known as “corporations sole,” falsely advising customers that their income will become tax-exempt and their assets collection-proof if they use a corporation sole, call themselves a “ministry,” and take a “vow of poverty.” The government’s court papers also allege that Kahn was convicted of federal tax crimes in 1985.

Court papers filed in an earlier injunction case against Douglas Rosile, a Florida-based former accountant, showed that Kahn sent customers to Rosile for preparation of tax returns making frivolous claims that wages are not income. In June 2002, a federal court in Tampa, Florida barred Rosile from preparing tax returns for others. Information about the Rosile case and copies of the complaint and preliminary injunction papers in that case are available at opa/ pr/ 2002/March/02_tax_145.htm, as well as

Court papers filed in today’s lawsuit also allege that the defendant, in an effort to obstruct Internal Revenue Service investigations of customers’ tax liabilities and thwart collection actions, charge their customers $50 to send frivolous complaints against Internal Revenue Service employees to the Treasury Department Inspector General. The complaints are allegedly signed by the Florida lawyer (Baxley) and the Texas accountant (Malatesta) and assert frivolous arguments challenging the Internal Revenue Service’s authority to enforce the tax laws and make baseless complaints against Internal Revenue Service employees. The government also alleges the defendants have filed more than 1,500 of these frivolous complaints against Internal Revenue Service employees with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration in an attempt to intimidate Internal Revenue Service agents.

Finally, the complaint alleges that the Kahn’s have marketed fraudulent tax schemes on the Internet and through seminars nationwide, most recently in Newport News, Virginia; Dania Beach, Florida; New Cumberland, Pennsylvania; Portland, Oregon and Denver, Colorado. The government filing says that the Internal Revenue Service has identified American Rights Litigators and Guiding Light of God Ministries customers across the country.

The Justice Department has sought and obtained injunctions recently against a number of tax-scam promoters. More information about these cases is available on the Justice Department website at
