Times continue to be terrifyingly desperate for fiscally insolvent federal and state governments. According to a recent bombshell from the Washington Post, the police and the entire executive branch of government seize billions of dollars a year from citizens, without any shred of due process or proof that a crime has been committed! The total unconstitutional police seizures now exceed $4.5 billion per year, more than all burglary offenses. This means that the police are now seizing more assets than the criminals! Why? Because our state & federal governments are broke, bankrupt and in desperate need of capital. So they’re expanding The Police State to unlawfully gain access to citizens’ money. Experts advise that you have only ONE choice if you want to protect your savings and retirement from government confiscations and seizures.[sc:freekitadd ]
Government on the Brink of Disaster
The U.S. government and the Fed pumped trillions of dollars of YOUR money into the banks and stock market over the last several years, catapulting the U.S. debt to $28 trillion by 2018. But now, the U.S. government and the Fed are completely out of ammo, with the Fed no longer able to buy U.S. treasuries. They desperately need money to maintain their own power, and taxes are not enough. So government officials are doing everything they can to keep the Ponzi scheme going, such as seizing the public’s money through inflation, deficits, and outright confiscation.[sc:GetGuide]
The Bill of Rights under Siege
The 4th Amendment to the Constitution reads clearly: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.”
The 5th Amendment to the Constitution reads clearly: “No person shall… be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
The 6th Amendment to the Constitution reads clearly: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall… be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”
The 7th Amendment to the Constitution reads clearly: “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved…”
But according to this shocking Washington Post report, the Bill of Rights is under siege!
Unknown to most citizens, police officers around the country received training and financial support from the departments of Homeland Security and Justice to engage in the practice of “highway interdiction” – which involves the police using minor infractions as an excuse to stop citizens, request warrantless searches, and seize cash. In most cases, no crime has been committed and the police never make an arrest.
In addition, federal & local police seize billions per year from citizens’ homes & businesses under the “asset forfeiture program,” all in the name of the War on Drugs. Yet many citizens whose assets are seized have committed no drug crimes and aren’t charged with any crime whatsoever.
The Washington Post obtained a database from the Justice Department containing details about 212,000 seizures. The following are just a few of the horrifying cases exposed by the Washington Post:
- Police confiscated $32,000 from a New York man after stopping him because he had a cracked windshield
- Police confiscated $17,550 from a Virginia man after stopping him because his car windows were tinted
- Police confiscated $13,000 from a North Carolina man after stopping him for no offense whatsoever
- Police confiscated $2,400 from a Nevada man after stopping him for no offense whatsoever
How widespread is this invasion of civil liberties? The total unconstitutional police seizures now exceed $4.5 billion per year. By comparison, according to the FBI, the total amount of goods stolen by criminals in 2014 burglary offenses was $3.9 billion. This means that the police are now taking more assets than the criminals![sc:freekitadd ]
Gov’t Confiscation Goes Much Further
Government confiscation of citizen wealth doesn’t stop with unconstitutional police seizures. As was recently reported, the U.S. government has made several highly controversial moves to nationalize retirement accounts like IRAs, 401Ks, pensions, 403Bs, as well as savings accounts worldwide:
- FATCA requires foreign financial institutions such as banks, stock brokers, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies, and trusts to report all U.S. citizens’ accounts directly to the IRS. FATCA even requires reporting to the IRS by foreign private companies on any income made by a citizen of the U.S. whether they live here or not.
- Obama’s MyRA means your retirement money will now be used to pay for U.S. debt. MyRA is nothing more than an investment scam being sold to the American people as a you-can’t-lose, zero-risk investment by the pitchman-in-chief himself.
- The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which oversees how investments are sold, proposed what it calls CARDS – Comprehensive Automated Risk Data System – which is an electronic system that will regularly collect data on balances and transactions in all 4100 brokerages nationwide.
So for the first time ever, the U.S. government is directing you where to invest your savings & retirement and has gained full access to the activity in every single citizen’s bank accounts, retirement accounts, brokerage accounts and trading accounts. The IRS will also have full visibility on any oversees accounts, income, equity or other earnings, effectively giving them access to all the wealth of every American citizen no matter where they reside on earth.[sc:GetGuide]
