Today, I read that Mr. Winston Shrout was indicted, the news source is included below.
If you are not aware of Winston Shrout, he is a high profile icon in the sovereign, and free man on the land movements attempting to extricate themselves from the worldwide matrix of debt as money bondage. In his own words he stated “we live in a very complicated commercial world”.
We know the governments are desperately seeking new streams of revenues, but this $100 Trillion dollar charge is ridiculous.
I wish to see the court documents and ledger receipts adding to $100 Trillion U.S. Federal Reserve Notes (aka “dollars”).
I doubt the receipts exist because the sovereign movement has no signs of a $100 Trillion dollar complex, or community of wealth.
The news report even states that Winston Shrout’s meager gross income is around $21,500.
The indictment appears bogus on the face of it.
The court is: UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF OREGON PORTLAND DIVISION

I request all truth seekers to call or write the court for details and documents concerning this trial. Make this a very high profile case informing the people of the world about legal fiction, contracts, fraud, and legal abuses.

The grand jury returned an indictment charging Shrout with 13 counts of making, presenting and transmitting fictitious financial instruments and six counts of willfully failing to file income tax returns.
He’s accused of making and issuing more than 300 fake “International Bills of Exchange” on his own behalf and for credit to third parties. The government contends Shrout falsely claimed the bills had value and purported them to be worth more than $100 trillion.
The indictment also alleges Shrout promoted and marketed the fake financial documents to pay off debts.
He’s also accused of failing to file income tax returns from 2009 through 2014 after receiving income for presentations at seminars and licensing fees for the sale of DVD recordings and private client consultations through his business Winston Shrout Solutions in Commerce.
By 2014, Shrout received gross income of more than $21,500, according to the indictment.
“Winston Shrout is one of the biggest sovereign citizen gurus of the last decade. This is a big deal, ” said Mark Pitcavage, senior research fellow with Anti-Defamation League center on extremism, in Ohio.
Anti-government sovereign citizens claim that paper money is unconstitutional, with gold and silver the only lawful forms of currency, so they find it easy to rationalize creating their own forms of paper money, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
“This is a very longstanding tactic in the sovereign citizen movement,” Pitcavage said. “They love to use bogus financial instruments. Some use bogus checks. Some look like money orders. They use these to pay off the IRS or other debtors.”
Shrout was previously indicted in December on charges of failure to file tax returns. On that indictment, he told the court in February that he didn’t want to be represented by a court-appointed attorney, and a judge allowed him to represent himself but named an assistant federal public defender to advise him. The court entered a not guilty plea on his behalf, according to court records.
Shrout is scheduled to return to court on this new indictment March 31.
If convicted, Shrout faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison on each count of making, presenting and transmitting fake financial documents and one year for each count of failure to file income tax returns.
Acting Assistant Attorney General Carolline D. Ciraolo of the U.S. Justice Department’s Tax Division announced the new indictment in a prepared release Wednesday.
