Skip to comments.The Next Shoe Just Dropped: Court Denies Attorney-Client Privelege

In the Land of the Free, people grow up hearing a lot of things about their freedom.
You're told that you live in the freest country on the planet...
This justice system is supposedly founded on bedrock principles-- things like a defendant being presumed innocent until proven guilty. The right to due process and an impartial hearing. The right to counsel and attorney-client privilege.
2. The concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' may officially exist in courts, but administratively it was thrown out long ago.
These days there are hundreds of local, state, and federal agencies that can confiscate your assets, levy your bank account, and freeze you out of your life's savings. None of this requires a court order.
By the time a case goes to court, you have been deprived of the resources you need to defend yourself. You might technically be presumed innocent, but you have been treated and punished like a criminal from day one.
3. Attorney-Client privilege is a long-standing legal concept which ensures that communication between an attorney and his/her client is completely private...
in a United States Tax Court decision announced on Wednesday, the court dismissed attorney client privilege
When every right and protection you have can be disregarded in their sole discretion, one really has to wonder how anyone can call it a 'free country' any more.

We were much better off in 1775. Just say’n.
The legacy of the War on Drugs that just keeps giving.
And the government can take your property without charging you with a crime. We really aren’t a free people, we are just told that we are.
My broadest take: It appears that the attorney was not acting as an attorney but as an accountant...”helping” his client to “deceive”.
It doesn't matter what you're accused of-- theft. treason. triple homicide, pedophilia. With very limited exceptions, an attorney cannot be compelled to testify against a client, nor can their communications be subpoenaed for evidence, UNLESS IT'S ABOUT TAXES !!!
Dawn breaks evenly today
On the truth and the lie
All rise, courts in session
Were hanging someone high
Justice means nothing today...
THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED
We really should take the next step:
The new model for American Jurisprudence:
1) Sentence the perp.
2) Hold a trial that shows the sentence is justified.
I would not call it a slippery slope, but, WWWWEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...
This ruling only applies to people who elect to be treated as corporations, and thereby trade their rights for privileges.
The fact that such a swap even exists should fascinate every American, since it is the process by which rights are lost. Yet it might as well be astrology for how it’s generally treated.
I find that amazing.
Hangings on Tuesday. Trials on Wednesday.
Link to the decision:
Attorney Client privilege has never been absolute. There are a variety of reason why it may not be valid. As I read it, the client has implicitly waived Attorney Client privilege because they have argued their attorney gave them X advice, and thus the other side gets to see if the attorney actually did give that advice.
It is easier to beg forgiveness afterwards, than to seek permission beforehand.
The “Free Country” ended on November 4, 2008. By popular demand.
Happened long before that.
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government, lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
