SAVE-A-PATRIOT “SAVES AMERICA” STORY
FREE SPEECH IN AMERICA IS BEING VICIOUSLY ATTACKED!!
WE NEED YOUR
HELP TO SAVE AMERICA! PLEASE!!
WHY SHOULD YOU HELP? PLEASE READ ON TO FIND OUT!!
In 1984 John Baptist
Kotmair, Jr. founded the Save-A-Patriot Fellowship organization after seeing
the need for a financial support organization for individual Patriots within
the Constitutional Revivalist Movement - the movement to re-establish the
strict adherence by those in government to the actual written laws, and the federal
and State Constitutions.
Fellowship would support any member who had suffered from the loss of either
property or Liberty by a wrongful act of some
government official (IRS). Recognizing the benefits of this plan, the idea took off
among Patriots, and the Fellowship grew. And after the first claimant (member) collected
his total damages for the wrongful confiscation of his property (%100 value of
the taken property), it really started to grow as word spread among informed
Americans that there was now an organization to join that is capable of defending
you and your property from the machinations and wrongful takings of the I.R.S.
after its inception, members started asking for help with investigations into
administrative IRS problems, and the Fellowship started accepting
Power-of-Attorney forms from members in order to make F.O.I.A and Privacy Act
requests into the procedures used by IRS employees - to make sure they
stayed within the confines and
authorities of the actual written laws. The results of these requests revealed
that IRS Revenue Agents and Officers often
were not following the law and the
regulations relating thereto. In addition, these agents were somewhat taken
aback by these inquires, which seemed to cause many of these tax assessment
efforts to abruptly end. When news of
this got around, the Fellowship grew like a wild fire, and by the early 1990s,
40 patriots were needed in-house to handle administrative operations and to
take care of casework development and paralegal work.
1993 the IRS was visibly worried with the growth in the Fellowship membership, with
its growing knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code and its regulations, and
with the successes the fellowship members were having in stopping wrongful IRS tax collection actions, and in
securing not guilty jury verdicts in a number of misguided criminal trials for alleged
failures to file. So, they started a
criminal investigation of me, again, and raided the Fellowship on December
10th. To make a long story short, we defeated them in court, again, and got a
very favorable decision establishing the fact that the Fellowship had no
obligation to keep books and records for IRS purposes. You can just imagine what
those within the IRS felt about this turn of events in the courts. Well, it took
them ten years, but they finally figured out - be it right or wrong - what to
do about it.
2003 they began investigating me for operating an abusive tax shelter program. It didn't matter to them that none of the
operations of the Save-A-Patriot Fellowship fell within any of the illegal
activities described in the law. In May
of 2005, they finally filed suit and merely alleged that the Fellowship
activities were in violation of the law. As most of you know, this led to three
solid years of defending against this nonsense all the way up to the United
States Supreme Court. But the end result was that federal judge William Nickerson, without any evidence
of wrong-doing or actual violation of any law, without any hearing or trial,
and in violation of the rules governing the federal courts, issued an injunction
against me and the Fellowship staff that if violated, would insure jail time
for each of us. This injunction, for all intents and purposes, ended most of
the Fellowship's educational efforts about the true application of the federal
tax laws and our ability to directly assist Fellowship members with IRS issues and tax problems. It was
just one more example of how those in government today are totally out of
control as they attempt to replace our Republican government of limited powers with
one of an all-encompassing supreme omnipotence.
1994, I began to see the need for a more widespread way to educate our fellow
Americans. And the method that kept coming up, for reaching as many Americans
as possible with the least amount of effort, was talk radio. So, members of the
Fellowship banded together in 1998 and started the Liberty Works Radio Network. It was a commercial effort, but being
under funded, we ran out of money before we could get it off the ground.
However, two good things came out of that effort. One was the involvement of
Sabatino Cupelli, a true American patriot who has been in radio all his life,
and the second was a renewed commitment to make Liberty Works Radio Network work.
as we call him, kept in touch, and in May of 2009 Sab committed his radio
station (WIFL 104.3 FM, in Central Florida) to playing LWRN programming 24/7, and we put the
network back on the air. This time around though, instead of being dependent on
commercial revenues, we were going to fund and support Liberty Works like Save-A-Patriot Fellowship before it,
through membership in a new Liberty Works
Radio Network Fellowship. And so we
started the long effort to make it work, and to make it grow.
didn't take very long for the IRS to try to hurt the effort financially. First, they
deposed me about alleged, but non-existent violations of the injunction order.
When that didn't work, they started making calls to Sab in an obvious effort to
intimidate him. And when that didn't work either, they started calling on the
commercial advertisers of WIFL (now WOGF), inquiring as to whom they were
paying for their commercials. A couple of advertisers were scared off, but many
were not, and so LWRN continued its progress.
Then, out of the blue, came the current
problem - the one that we need Patriots to help us with. A tax-exempt
organization, Citrus County Association for Retarded Citizens filed suit
against Nature Coast Broadcasting, Inc., the corporation that owns WOGF,
claiming default on a mortgage without any proof of their claim. It was
admitted in their complaint to the Circuit Court of Citrus County that the underlying promissory note
was lost. Well, under normal circumstances, that would be enough for it to be
thrown out of any court for "NO CAUSE OF ACTION,' but that's not what was
done here. Despite the existence of CONTESTED FACTS - a situation that requires
a trial (that is, except in this case) - the judge issued an order establishing
a judgment of some six hundred thousand dollars, and appointed a receiver to
take over the operation of the radio station. But, believe it or not, the rules
of the Federal Communications Commission stand in the way of these evildoers,
and would prevent them from taking over and operating the station, since Sab is
the holder of the FCC station license. But not to be deterred by such things as
FCC regulations, these individuals came with a court order and Deputy Sheriffs
and proceeded to seize all the radio broadcasting equipment.
order to put a halt to this confiscation, Sab filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in
the federal court in Tampa, Florida, and gave notice of this to
everyone involved. According to federal law, the filing of a petition for
bankruptcy puts all actions to collect debts on hold, including actions that
have taken place within the preceding 90 days, pending the resolution of that
bankruptcy. Therefore, any property that has been taken within that time, as
was the case here, must be returned. Well, these individuals care no more for
bankruptcy laws than for FCC regulations, and are now openly defying them as
well. By refusing to return the equipment, they're flirting with being held in
contempt of the bankruptcy court. So either these individuals are insane, or
they must have someone with some powerful pull behind them.
that as it may, their actions are succeeding in putting WOGF in a financial
bind, not being able to sell commercial time, yet with continuing expenses to
cover. And due to the connection between LWRN and WOGF, we too are being
Because Nature Coast Broadcasting is a
corporation, and cannot therefore represent itself in court, funds must be
raised to hire a bankruptcy lawyer, and they are not inexpensive. On the plus
side however, if we can last financially, there is an open and shut civil suit
against Citrus County Association for Retarded Citizens, and the principals
thereof. It would be ironic indeed, if the future funding for LWRN comes out of
this attack on it. Such an event, in my belief, would truly be the Work of Our
