From 1986 to 1996 TJ Henderson was in the logging business, with up to $97,000 a week in gross receipts.
In 1992, the DNR and private land owners started to see that TJ was making a whole pot full of money.
The next thing he new was, he had more lawsuits pending against him than any one man deserved in any one life time.
Which in turn started his quest in the legal profession.
The Spotted Owl issue cut back about 90% of the harvest from federal forest in Washington and Oregon.
Private timber became more in demand. In 1992 TJ began buying up private timber land, as much as 1000 acres per year.
1993 started to mark the industries over regulation, due to the environmentalists infiltration of the different
departments that regulated the timber industry.
This is when the lawsuits started to flow. TJ hired an Attorney named Eugene Hanson, who was the Ex Prosecuting
Attorney for Klickitat County, Wa. TJ thinking he could get justice, Ha. Justice what's that? This attorney
lost the first few cases for TJ. One for the DNR and two for private land owners, despite weather TJ was right or wrong.
TJ thinking, well the law states otherwise. This scenario went on until 1994, when TJ went to his first Patriot meeting.
TJ had one DNR issue still in the beginning stages, several private cases and one building permit case.
The patriot meetings led to more meetings and more meetings and more study into law. He had lost all trust in attorneys.
He thought that he liked the legal profession and wanted to learn more. So, he decided that the best way to get hands on
experience was to do miner things in the courts such as traffic tickets, that way no one's assets were on the line.
Then the building permit case turned into a $38,500 move on the counties part to take TJ's property.

About TJ Henderson
TJ had learned through his study of law, about jurisdiction. So, he wrote his first motion and brief challenging
the jurisdiction of the court. This jurisdictional challenge went on for 5 and a half hours with no rebuttal from
the prosecutor. When the commissioner of the court got up and yelled, I'm taking jurisdiction. That's when TJ
got up and yelled right back at him. If that's the case then I am going to file a federal lawsuit against you for
the violation of your oath of office. That's when TJ realized that maybe his actions could land him in jail for
contempt. So he picked up everything and headed for the door. When he got to the door, the commissioner of the court
said, Mr. Henderson do you want to hear the out come of the case? Not interested, TJ replied back. TJ never heard another
word on that case to this very day and never lost his property. In fact, he sold that same property by Land Patent.
That day marked the beginning of 42 straight case wins, before losing one case only impart. Cases from traffic, DNR,
zoning, criminal and IRS. In these case wins, TJ also won the right to represent clients without being a member of the
bar associations, in three different cases. In TJ's research of the 1st Judiciary Act of 1789 and subsequent case law,
TJ learned that the Judiciary had made provisions for both licenced attorneys and Councilors at Law. Councilors at Law
are people who are learned in the laws, manage cases and speak for clients and are not members of any bar associations.
TJ also leaned that a free people have the right to associate, which means they also have the right to not associate and
cannot be forced into choosing between the two rights. This means there has to be an alternative to a bar licenced
attorney or your right to choose has been taken away. This argument is hard to make, because bar licenced attorneys
feel attacked and intimidated by someone who knows the law, especially constitutional law and they have the judges on
their side, who were or are bar licenced attorneys to protect, as it were, the legal profession. A violation of separation
of powers. The legal profession was never supposed to be regulated by the courts. In fact the courts have no power to make
regulation. TJ also leaned that there was a thing called administrative law, which was created in 1937 by the compact of
states. TJ thought, well show me in the constitutions that creates a jurisdiction of administrative law that applies to a
free people. A free people is where it lies, we have the right to contract and we have the opposite right to not contract.
The problem is, the states as well as the federal government, have created contracts that give the free people no choice.
Do it or go to jail. In a constitutional society, where's the justice in that?
To this date TJ has 127 case wins, 84 being on the administrative level with the IRS and the rest being in various
courts, with 4 losses and 4 cases pending, all of which are in the last 10 years. TJ now teaches what he has learned
over the last 12 years.
