COMES  NOW   Karl  Frank   Kleinpaste,  Sui   Juris,  Citizen  of
Pennsylvania state,  expressly not a citizen of the United States
("federal citizen"),  and Plaintiff  in the above entitled matter
(hereinafter  "Plaintiff"),  to  provide  formal  Notice  to  all
interested parties,  and to  move this honorable Court for a stay
of further  proceedings, pending  formal discovery of newly found
evidence, recently  and properly  requested under  the Freedom of
Information Act ("FOIA").  See 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(B), in chief.
     Plaintiff has filed, concurrently with the instant MOTION, a
several FOIA  requests  which  Plaintiff  has  submitted  to  the
respective disclosure officers of the agencies named.
    Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending Discovery under FOIA:
                           Page 1 of 6

     Pursuant to  Rule 201(d)  of the  Federal Rules of Evidence,
the term  "shall" as  used therein  has a  mandatory,  imperative
meaning, over  which  this  honorable  Court  has  no  discretion
whatsoever.   Confer at  "Shall" in Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth
Edition (with pronunciations).
     Plaintiff now  alleges, and  makes a  formal offer to prove,
that the  named defendants  Internal Revenue Service (hereinafter
"IRS")  and   Gavin  Chafin  ("Chafin"),  have  not  made  proper
appearances to date, because there is no evidence in the official
record of  the instant  case that the Office of the United States
Attorney has  been granted  any lawful  Power(s) of  Attorney  to
represent either  party (IRS  or Chafin).   See, in pari materia,
the statutory Power of Attorney granted at 28 U.S.C. 547(2).
     Plaintiff hereby  specifically denies  that Defendant Chafin
is a  duly authorized  collector or other officer, as those terms
are used  in 28  U.S.C. 547(3).   It is primarily for this reason
that Plaintiff has now requested Chafin's credentials by means of
a proper  request submitted under the FOIA.  See companion NOTICE
AND DEMAND filed concurrently with the instant MOTION.
     Plaintiff's  proper   and  timely   FOIA  request   to   the
Commissioner of Internal Revenue ("CIR"), for a certified copy of
the   CIR's   executed   Agreement   on   Coordination   of   Tax
Administration with  the Commonwealth (or State) of Pennsylvania,
is expected to provide this honorable Court with crucial evidence
of the  true organizational identity and legal situs of defendant
IRS.   Plaintiff is  presently in  possession of  an  uncertified
photocopy of  the comparable Agreements between defendant IRS and
the states of Oklahoma and Connecticut.
    Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending Discovery under FOIA:
                           Page 2 of 6

     Until such  time as  the CIR has produced said Agreement and
Plaintiff has  entered a certified copy of same into the official
record, this  Court is  denied crucial  evidence which  Plaintiff
argues is necessary to establish, as a matter of fact, whether or
not defendant IRS has designated agents properly to represent IRS
before this honorable Court.
     By way  of carrying  Plaintiff's burden  of proving probable
fraud upon this honorable Court by defendant IRS, particularly in
the  matter  of  its  legal  representation  before  this  Court,
Plaintiff respectfully  requests formal  judicial Notice of Title
31,  United  States  Code  ("U.S.C."),  in  toto,  as  conclusive
evidence that  defendant IRS  is not  a bureau,  organization, or
department within  the United  States Department of the Treasury.
Title 31,  U.S.C., has been enacted into positive law.  See rules
for conclusive  and prima  facie evidence  of the law in Title 1,
U.S.C. in toto.  Title 26 has not been enacted into positive law.
     The only  mention of  defendant IRS  anywhere in  Title  31,
U.S.C., is  the authority  granted to  the President to appoint a
General Counsel  to the  IRS.   Neither has said General Counsel,
nor has  the General Counsel's duly authorized delegate, made any
appearance(s) before  this Court on behalf of defendant IRS.  The
office of  the United  States Attorney  is not  currently a  duly
authorized delegate of the General Counsel for the IRS.
     On a  more fundamental  level, Plaintiff  has also submitted
proper and  timely FOIA requests for the requisite credentials of
certain government  actors who have, to date, touched the instant
case in  one way  or another.   See 28 U.S.C. 544, 5 U.S.C. 3331.
See also  Historical and Statutory Notes under 28 U.S.C. 541 with
respect to the term "learned in law".
    Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending Discovery under FOIA:
                           Page 3 of 6

     If the  person(s) claiming to occupy duly authorized offices
within the  Office of  the United  States Attorney have, in fact,
failed to  execute an Appointment Affidavit, pursuant to the Oath
of Office  provision as  codified at  5 U.S.C. 3331, then another
serious fraud has been committed upon this honorable Court.
     Said fraud  is proven  by the  false appearances  which have
been made  on behalf of defendants United States, IRS, and Chafin
by persons  claiming to  be, but  not  lawfully  being,  in  duly
delegated offices within the Office of the U.S. Attorney.
     Plaintiff hereby  alleges  further  probable  fraud  in  the
Agreement on  Coordination  of  Tax  Administration,  consummated
between  defendant   IRS  and  the  Commonwealth  (or  State)  of
Pennsylvania, and now in force, and offers to prove same by means
of document(s) properly requested under the FOIA (see supra).
                        NOTICE OF INTENT
     Plaintiff  hereby  notifies  all  interested  party(s),  and
requests mandatory  judicial Notice by this Court, of Plaintiff's
intention to  compel production  of  a  certified  copy  of  said
Agreement from  the Commonwealth  (or State) of Pennsylvania, and
to enter  same into  evidence in  the instant  case, in  order to
confirm whether  or not  the latter Agreement is one and the same
as the corresponding Agreement requested from the CIR under FOIA.
     Plaintiff is  presently investigating  the  pertinent  state
discovery statutes  to compel production of the latter Agreement,
and needs  additional time  to complete this investigation and to
import said  statutes under  authority of  28 U.S.C. 1652:  State
laws as rules of decision.  See Full Faith and Credit Clause.
    Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending Discovery under FOIA:
                           Page 4 of 6

     Plaintiff  also  respectfully  requests  mandatory  judicial
Notice by this honorable Court, and provides formal Notice to all
interested party(s),  of Plaintiff's intent, expressed hereby, to
invoke the  original jurisdiction  of the  District Court  of the
United States  ("DCUS"), pursuant  to 5  U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(B),  to
compel production of documents properly requested under the FOIA,
and to  enjoin the  improper withholding of same by the agency(s)
in question,  in the  event that  said agency(s)  should fail  to
produce certified copies of the documents requested.
                        REMEDY REQUESTED
     Wherefore, all  premises having been duly considered by this
honorable Court,  Plaintiff respectfully  requests  an  immediate
stay of  further proceedings  in this forum, pending discovery of
admissible documents concurrently requested under the FOIA.
I, Karl Frank Kleinpaste, Sui Juris, hereby verify, under penalty
of perjury,  under the  laws of  the United  States  of  America,
without the  "United States" (federal government), that the above
statement of facts is true and correct, to the best of My current
information, knowledge,  and belief,  so help Me God, pursuant to
28 U.S.C. 1746(1).  See Supremacy Clause.
