10/24/16
Is social media turning you into a zealot?

(CNN)Have you heard? Hillary Clinton is dying of Parkinson's disease. Also, Donald Trump thinks the United States shouldn't have stopped the Bosnian genocide. Angry mobs of "Bernie bros" are hurling chairs at Democratic staffers. And President Obama, who smells like sulfur, is followed everywhere he goes by a swarm of flies.

These are fake statements, pulled from the bowels of the internet. Can you tell?

If you get your information from social media, the world is an almost supernaturally dark place these days. Our feeds and timelines are jammed with outrageous and incredible accounts that prove what we all already suspected: our political opponents are crazy. Maybe some of them are downright evil.

The good news is that much of what you read via social media isn't true. The bad news is that more and more people believe it is. Social media increasingly dominates our news-getting habits. But recent studies suggest the stories we share on platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere are unreliable, polarizing, and even destructive to the social order.

A recent experiment published at Buzzfeed demonstrates that an average of 28.55% of articles shared on partisan social media are either mostly false, or a mixture of truth and fiction.

Another study, done by Gnip analytics and reported in the new issue of The Atlantic suggests that across-the-aisle dialogue could make up as little as 10% of social media interactions.

How much of that do you suppose is friendly crosstalk? Not much, according to yet another study by scholars from George Washington and American universities. According to their study of social media during the 2011 Egyptian revolution, the authors say the most politically active social media users were also the ones most prone to spreading stories promoting paranoia and violence.

Indeed, to those of us who have studied the role of social media in uprisings such as Iran's "Green Revolution" and the Arab Spring, this all comes as no surprise. Social media platforms like Twitter were instrumental in organizing the protests that led to the overthrow of despots throughout the Middle East. But when the smoke cleared, and the ousters had been accomplished, old dictatorships were replaced with new ones, and the few democratically elected governments were fast dominated by hardline Islamists.

Social media, while excellent at spreading unrest, proved incapable of supporting open, democratic reforms.

Like digital platforms in general, social media is great at disrupting institutions and industries. But when it comes to the hard work of reform and building sustainable systems, it is a dangerous hindrance. Stable government depends on a pause in revolutionary fervor. Open societies rely on people's faith in the good intentions of their fellow citizens. Democracy can't function without a well-informed electorate.

But as the previously-mentioned studies show, social media encourages exactly the opposite of all these virtues. Our personally-tailored social media feeds create what the legal scholar Cass Sunstein calls enclave extremism — groupthink and factionalism with a tendency to spiral into zealotry.

This happens in part because social media are biased in favor of duplication and repetition. It is easy to share a story, retweet it, reblog it, or affirmatively "like" it. But Silicon Valley designers have yet to invent an emoji that means "poorly argued, but reflecting valid concerns."

Add to that the fact that the most shareable stories are "click bait" designed to generate quick bursts of outrage and self-righteousness. What you get is a thousand niche realities, each spreading misinformation, mistrust, and rage.

Unfortunately, we in the United States are beginning to see the political consequences of social media's bias towards the outrageous and untruthful. Regardless of who is elected President in November, that person will face a crisis of legitimacy stemming from accounts of election fraud and suppression, or foreign or intra-party meddling. Some of these news items will contain kernels of truth, but many will not. And all of them will be spread on social media.

The very structure of social media — peer-to-peer and relatively free of oversight — means that this will not be an easy hurdle for the next President to clear. Meanwhile, social media use continues to spread worldwide. It may ultimately fall to users to de-escalate the war of words and pictures before it becomes a global digital war of all against all.

As the experience of the Arab Spring should remind us, virtual unrest can easily spill into the streets. We should ask if all the "likes" in the world are worth that outcome.

snippet:

Choosing a Cabinet From Familiar Faces

Donald Trump was very public with his vice-presidential selection process, effectively auditioning several candidates, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, retired Gen. Michael Flynn and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

It's unknown whether he would take the same approach to his cabinet appointments.

Donald Trump’s transition team is being headed up by Christie, while Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has reportedly been deeply involved in that, along with many other parts of the presidential campaign.

ABC News reporting and analysis points to businessman Carl Icahn or the Trump campaign’s national finance chairman, Steve Mnuchin, as possible treasury secretary options.

Giuliani and Sheriff Joe Arpaio could be potential secretaries of the Department of Homeland Security, and Christie has long been seen as a contender for the attorney general spot.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This isn't the first report I've heard about Guilliani being a potential cabinet appointee...

Arpaio? This guy, who played his role in Obama's Hegelian Dialectic birther movement, just never goes away!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lots of Action on the First Day

During the campaign, Trump has repeatedly said he will “repeal and replace Obamacare," "immediately suspend the admission of Syrian refugees," "order a review of every single regulation issued over the last eight years," "begin lifting all regulations that are hurting our workers and our businesses," "terminate every single unconstitutional executive order signed by President Obama," “restore the rule of law to our land," "begin implementing plans for construction of a wall along our southern border," and "get rid of [international gangs of thugs and drug cartels]," all on his first day.

**One payer system coming soon!

Be yet not deceived, these protests are STAGED by the NWO!

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/thousands-of-anti-trump-protesters-take-to-streets-of-us-cities/ar-AAk74hs?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp
Thousands of anti-Trump protesters take to streets of U.S. cities

CHICAGO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Demonstrators marched in cities across the United States on Wednesday to protest against Republican Donald Trump's surprise presidential election win, blasting his campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.


In New York, thousands filled streets in midtown Manhattan as they made their way to Trump Tower, Trump's gilded home on Fifth Avenue. Hundreds of others gathered at a Manhattan park and shouted "Not my president."

In Los Angeles, protesters sat on the 110 and 101 highway interchange, blocking traffic on one of the city's main arteries as police in riot gear tried to clear them. Some 13 protesters were arrested, a local CBS affiliate reported.

An earlier rally and march in Los Angeles drew more than 5,000 people, many of them high school and college students, local media reported.

A demonstration of more than 6,000 people blocked traffic in Oakland, California, police said. Protesters threw objects at police in riot gear, burned trash in the middle of an intersection, set off fireworks and smashed store front windows.

Police responded by throwing chemical irritants at the protesters, according to a Reuters witness.

Two officers were injured in Oakland and two police squad cars were damaged, Johnna Watson, spokeswoman for the Oakland Police Department told CNN.

Secret Facebook groups become Trump-era activist tools: 'This is a wake-up call'
11/14/16

Some say they now want to run for office. Others plan to write to their local mosques to express solidarity with American Muslims and refugees, or to start preparing for the midterm elections in Congress. They are organizing in secret Facebook groups they consider safe spaces with tongue-in-cheek titles like Pantsuit Nation and Bitches For Hillary – not just to mourn but to mobilize.

“This is a huge wake-up call,” said Meghan Myszkowski, 36, of Donald Trump’s win last week.

Myszkowski, a single mother and who runs a social media agency in Pasadena, California, is a member of several invitation-only Facebook groups where disappointed voters – particularly women – are pledging to ignite a novel liberal comeback in the US.

Pantsuit Nation was started during the Democratic primary and now has three million members, all by invitation only. A new group, Still Stronger Together, was created last Wednesday, just 12 hours after the election result became clear, and already has more than 6,000 members.

It specifically urges members to suggest ideas for fighting back against what they fear could be a wild conservative agenda from president-elect Donald Trump.

“Liberals were in an echo chamber and not listening to people outside the bubble. I want to start organizing for people to donate to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, the National Organization for Women. A friend of mine has started designing shirts with the proceeds going to these groups and we are talking about it in the secret groups. It’s a start at least,” Myszkowski said.

In her concession speech, Hillary Clinton gave a nod to such groups and called for them to be part of a comeback, saying: “And to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to their neighbors, posted on Facebook – even in secret, private Facebook sites, I want everybody coming out from behind that [to] make sure your voices are heard going forward.”

Prior to the presidential election, Pantsuit Nation was a rallying place for support for Clinton. Since her defeat it has become a haven where devastated Clinton voters commiserate, but also seek advice about related problems and brainstorm about next steps.


One female member in Pennsylvania posted that she went jogging after the election and passed a group of workmen, one of whom yelled: “We own your **** now” – a reference to the audio tape that surfaced during the campaign of then-candidate Trump boasting about grabbing women, unbidden, by the genitals.

Many Pantsuit Nation posters called themselves “blue dots in a sea of red” after voting for Clinton in deeply Republican areas such as Wyoming, Kentucky, Tennessee or Mississippi. They have been sharing stories of Trump voters gloating aggressively at them in the workplace since his victory, or harassing them because they are Mexican. They then receive moral support and advice from other members.

As the Thanksgiving celebration approaches, many posts discuss how – or even whether – to face gathering around the dinner table with family members who voted for Trump.

“It’s been a way to touch base with people who are struggling with hate crimes and it’s a resource to get support because I feel like liberals are going off a cliff,” said Ivory Rieger, 46, a supermarket business analyst in Portland, Maine. She joined Pantsuit Nation about three months before the election and joined Still Stronger Together last week.

She said she was an enthusiastic voter but was now inspired to become a lot more vocal and active in protest against the Trump agenda.

IT BEGINS: Far Left Leader Proposes "Truth Squads" to Disseminate Only Approved Propaganda to Global Community

Democrat operatives organized a coordinated attack against conservative websites following Hillary Clinton’s decisive defeat last week.

Far left leaders, including Barack Obama, blamed the inability of the left to convey “their message” as the reason why they were rejected by the American electorate.

The left pushed a hit list of targeted conservative websites earlier this week.

Now this…
Kenneth Roth, the creepy executive director of Human Rights Watch, a far left international “human rights” organization, wants “truth squads” set up to disseminate approved leftist propaganda to the global community.

Wow!

The left wants a ‘thought police squad’– Wow!

Fugitive Brazilian inmates post 'selfies' on Facebook while on the run

MANAUS, Brazil, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- A Brazilian man who broke out of prison in Manaus has posted photos of himself on Facebook, including one post-escape "selfie."

Brayan Bremer, sentenced on robbery charges, and another another fugitive posed for and posted on Bremer's "Mobile Uploads" Facebook folder a picture amid dense vegetation -- both giving thumbs up with the accompanying caption "On run of jail."

In the image, Bremer did not have shoes on. In one Facebook post, he advises "single ladies" to "take care."

Police said the unidentified man behind Bremer has been captured, while Bremer remains on the run, A Crítica reported. Bremer often used his Facebook account while imprisoned, though it is banned by prison officials.

Bremer was among about 72 people who broke out of the Antonio Trindade jail in Manaus on Sunday. Hours later, 112 inmates broke out of the Anisio Jobim prison amid a deadly riot. Dozens of inmates have been recaptured.

At least 60 people died, including several by decapitation, during Sunday's 17-hour Anisio Jobim prison riot. A total of 1,229 inmates were housed in the prison, which has an intended capacity of just 500.

US DESIGNATES ELECTION INFRASTRUCTURE AS 'CRITICAL'

Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that's "vital to our national interests," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he's designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure, a move that provides more federal help for state and local governments to keep their election systems safe from tampering.

"Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law," Johnson said in a statement. He added: "Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing to do."

The determination came after months of review and despite opposition from many states worried that the designation would lead to increased federal regulation or oversight on the many decentralized and locally run voting systems across the country. It was announced on the same day a declassified U.S. intelligence report said Russian President Vladimir Putin "ordered" an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.

The declassified report said that Russian intelligence services had "obtained and maintained access to elements of multiple U.S. state or local electoral boards." None of the systems targeted or compromised was involved in vote tallying, the report said.

A 2013 presidential directive identified 16 sectors as critical infrastructures, including energy, financial services, health care, transportation, food and agriculture and communications.

The designation announced Friday places responsibilities on the Homeland Security secretary to identify and prioritize those sectors, considering physical and cyber threats against them. The secretary is also required to conduct security checks and provide information about emerging and imminent threats.

Such a change does not require presidential action, and only requires the secretary to first consult with the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.

Discussions about whether to designate elections systems as critical infrastructure surfaced after hackers targeted the voter registration systems of more than 20 states in the months prior to the November election.

While the designation puts responsibilities on the Department of Homeland Security, it does not require entities that are determined "critical infrastructure" to participate. Much of the nation's critical infrastructure is in the private sector.

Johnson said election infrastructure included storage facilities, polling places and vote tabulation locations, plus technology involved in the process, including voter registration databases, voting machines and other systems used to manage the election process and report and display results.

The designation allows for information to be withheld from the public when state, local and private partners meet to discuss election infrastructure security - potentially injecting secrecy into an election process that's traditionally and expressly a transparent process. U.S. officials say such closed door conversations allow for frank discussion that would prevent bad actors from learning about vulnerabilities. DHS would also be able to grant security clearances when appropriate and provide more detailed threat information to states.

The Obama administration has proposed international cyber rules for peacetime that would expressly note that countries shouldn't conduct online activity targeting critical infrastructure, which will now also include election systems.

President Barack Obama used sanctions last week to retaliate against Russian efforts to interfere in the U.S. election process by expanding a prior executive order that allows for their use in the case of cyberattack on critical infrastructure to entities "interfering with or undermining election processes or institutions." With election infrastructure designated as critical, an attack that takes the system down would also qualify for a response of sanctions.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian P. Kemp, who is a member of the U.S. Election Infrastructure Cybersecurity Working Group run by DHS, is among those who have opposed the designation. Testifying in September to a House Oversight subcommittee, Kemp said more federal oversight could make systems more vulnerable and could make protected records more accessible.

When Johnson discussed the likelihood of the designation in a conference call with state officials on Thursday, Kemp called the action "a federal overreach into a sphere constitutionally reserved for the states." According to a copy of his comments released by his office, Kemp told Johnson on the phone that "this smacks of partisan politics" given the dwindling days left in the Obama administration.

Kemp has appealed to President-elect Donald Trump to investigate "failed cyberattacks" on the Georgia secretary of state's network that traced to the Department of Homeland Security, calling the department's technical explanations insufficient.

Republicans pass sweeping bill to reform 'abusive' U.S. regulation

Republicans on Wednesday passed a bill in the House of Representatives that touched on nearly every step U.S. agencies take in creating and applying new rules, continuing their blitz to radically reform "abusive" federal regulation of areas from the environment to the workplace.

Nuclear Option: '1984' Sales Soar: Could Liberals Be Great Again? - Breitbart
by Charles Hurt8 Feb 20170

In droves, the precious political “liberals” and “progressives” are gobbling up copies of George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” about “the perils of a totalitarian police state,” according to The Washington Post.

The book reached No. 1 among fiction paperbacks in the Washington area, according to the paper. Just ahead of “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis, another throwback novel about “a populist president [who] becomes a dictator.”

Hmmm, I wonder what is going on here.

Are the kids finally waking up and after decades of blithe ignorance and deciding to finally educate themselves about social studies? Are they suddenly “woke” to the ancient questions such as “Who should govern?” and “Where do rights come from?

Are they finally concerned about the dangers of a crushingly powerful and all-knowing Leviathan government that reaches into every aspect of people’s lives? Or, perhaps they are reading up in preparation for a visit to Cuba.

Probably not. But Orwell was a pretty smart guy and wrote some brilliant books. Most of us, of course, did not need to rush out and buy a copy of “1984” after Obamacare was jammed through Congress because, well, because we all still have our copies from when we first read it as teenagers.

The only reason there isn’t an actual Obamacare in “1984” is that even Mr. Orwell’s considerable imagination could not conjure up something so diabolical and wrong.

A system that forces Little Sisters of the Poor to commit what they believe is murder. And then forces them to pay for it.

A system that gives the superstate access to all of your most personal medical information and forces you into medical situations whether you want them or not.

It is the same superstate that President Obama entrusted to spy on elderly people on Social Security who required help keeping their finances straight. If they are not able to balance their checkbooks on their own, they would be deemed mentally unfit and added to the federal list of criminals barred from purchasing weapons.

Seriously, Orwell was a piker compared with this crowd today.

Meanwhile, the federal government monitors Facebook and social media accounts of citizens to make sure they are paying taxes. Yet at the same time the feds have spectacularly failed to monitor social media of terrorists plotting to kill Americans and destroy the greatest force for freedom and individual liberty on the planet today.

The similarities between “1984” and the “utopian” dreams of self-proclaimed “liberals” and “progressives” today — gross misnomers both — are uncanny.

“1984” features Newspeak, the propaganda of Oceania. Individualism and thoughtcrimes were prosecuted by the Thought Police. Today, we have political correctness to shut down debate.

Orwell had his “Ministry of Truth,” which lies about everything. “Ministry of Love” to run the torture program. “Ministry of Plenty” to handle rationing. And, best of all, the “Ministry of Peace,” which kept Oceana in the constant state of war.

Today, we have a “Treasury” Department filled with $20 trillion worth of IOUs.

We have an “Energy” Department that mainly handles spent nuclear fuel.

Our Health and Human Services ministry launches predawn raids on peaceful family farms suspected of selling fresh milk that has not been cooked to specific federal guidelines.

We have a Department of “Education,” which apparently hasn’t been teaching social studies in 40 years.

Best of all, we have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to arm Mexican thugs, terrorists and drug dealers with guns to be used against Americans.

Orwell had to make it up. We, literally, couldn’t.

But just maybe, “liberals” today will rediscover their roots and reignite a deep suspicion of a large, all-powerful government. Perhaps by reading “1984” they will discover that any government so big that it can give you everything is so big that it will take everything away from you.

Somebody should make up some hats that say: “Make Liberals Great Again.”

Obama Appointed FEC Commissioner Pushing For Internet Censorship Forced To Resign



FEC Commissioner Wanted To Shut Down The Drudge Report

On Sunday, Federal Election Commissioner Ann Ravel tweeted out that she is resigning her position effective March 1, 2017. In her resignation letter Ravel voiced her concerns to President Trump about campaign finance reform.

I respectfully urge you to prioritize campaign finance reform to remedy the significant problems identified during the last election cycle,” the letter says. “Disclosure laws need to be strengthened; the mistaken jurisprudence of Citizens United reexamined; public financing of candidates ought to be expanded to reduce reliance on the wealthy; and Commissioners who will carry out the mandates of the law should be appointed to expired terms at the FEC. Thank you very much.

Ann Ravel was appointed by former President Barack Obama back in 2013 to the FEC to fill a vacant spot according to the Washington Post.

Ravel’s resignation comes as she has become a no-show for public meetings since early December according to the Free Beacon.

From The Free Beacon:

“Ravel had become a frequent no-show at Commission meetings since late last year, phoning into 4 public meetings (one from a train) and completely skipping two executive sessions in January,” a source close to the Commission said in an emailed statement. “That did not stop her, however, from requesting a special meeting to obtain Commission approval to travel to Ecuador, at foreign expense, a request she later withdrew after the Free Beacon wrote about the matter.”

Previously Ravel had pushed hard for shutting down the Drudge Report which has been a political juggernaut ever since breaking the Monica Lewinsky scandal back in the late 90’s.

From The Washington Examiner:

[2014] In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.

Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.

Momentum Building in Congress to End This Federal Department

Stating that the U.S. Department of Education has "become more interested in protecting the interests of unions, not the students it is supposed to serve," Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-La.) joined the list of co-sponsors to Rep. Thomas Massie's bill to eliminate the department.

Massie's bill is a single sentence, that states—if it is signed into law—that the DoE no longer exists as of a certain date. In addition to Abraham, it has the following co-sponsors:

    Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.),
    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.),
    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah),
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.),
    Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.), and
    Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho).

"It's time for that to change," Abraham added. "The best way to initiate that change is to return education policy decision making to where it belongs, at the state and local levels."

Interesting listen...apparently Calvin's model pushed for very similar NWO Police State agendas we're seeing now.

United States Government To ‘Simulate Nuclear Blast Over Manhattan’ With Operation Gotham Shield 2017
On April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, state, local, and federal organizations alike are planning for Operation Gotham Shield 2017 — a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian border. During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are rendered “safe” during the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exercise, and one successful 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with one smaller detonation on the U.S./Canadian border are to take place.

On April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, state, local, and federal organizations alike are planning for Operation Gotham Shield 2017, simulating a nuclear attack on the East coast

EDITOR’S NOTE: Before you simply roll your eyes and say ‘conspiracy theory nuts’, remember the following tidbits of information. On the morning of September 11, 2001, the United States government was running military exercises to simulate attacks on the World Trade Center using commercial planes. On July 7, 2005, the British government was running military preparedness exercises simulating terrorists setting off bombs in the London Metro. Amazing coincidences, aren’t they? Predictably Snopes has already issued their “nothing to see here” response and Google predictably has made sure it’s the first link you see when you do a search for ‘Operation Gotham Shield‘. After having had so much practice with deception, all the key players now operate as a very well-oiled machine. Please see link at the bottom of this article to read the official PDF from the DOE and the NNSA on the planned exercise.

A general alert is out for something major in the near or immediate future. Hopefully, it is just another false alarm, instead of another false flag. Either way, and danger is at hand. Given all that is going on in the world, it is downright eerie to discover that the federal government is once again staging mock disasters that draw disturbing parallels with current world events.
In just a few days, during April 24-26th, Operation Gotham Shield will commence:

It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.

The potential for a more explosive false flag to spin out of control, by hijacking and ‘converting’ the simulated actions, is all too real.

Now U.S. government threatens to take all your cash

 In the name of fighting terrorism financing, a new U.S. Senate bill threatens to force private corporations to monitor your financial activity and empowers government to seize all your assets if you fail to comply with the new law.

Even failure to fill out one form is license for the federal government to take everything you have.

Sponsored by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Senate Bill 1241, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017,” was introduced last month and represents what some financial experts say is a new assault on cash and digital currencies.

Proponents say it’s needed to fight criminal and terrorist money laundering efforts, yet the banking institutions that will be given orders to look for evidence are themselves the primary architects of the schemes that make this activity profitable on a massive scale.

“If the bill becomes law, Americans would be subject to a whole host of government intrusions. One little slip-up would open a Pandora’s box of governmental inquiry into your financial life,” says Peter Reagan, a financial-market strategist at Birch Gold Group. “For example, failing to complete a single reporting form would result in the government being granted abilities to freeze and seize not just a portion, but the entirety, of your assets. The bill even goes so far as to include the contents of safety-deposit boxes.”

What do YOU think? Does Senate bill allowing seizure of all your assets have a chance? Sound off in the WND Poll!

As the bill stands today, precious-metals holdings are not covered under the required declarations. Most other ‘monetary instruments’ would be locked down tight.

“The war on cash and financial autonomy has been underway for some time,” says Reagan. “But this bill would solidify a serious loss of freedom we’ve been fearing for years.”

Because fighting “terrorism” is one of the purposes of the legislation, it allows any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of the Department of Homeland Security to take your monetary assets, including Bitcoin and so-called “crypto-currencies.”

Claire Bernish, an independent investigative reporter, says the bill would impose “autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the state’s most nefarious, despised powers: civil forfeiture.”

“Civil forfeiture grants the government robbery writ large: your cash, property, and assets can be stolen completely sans due process, your guilt – frequently pertaining to drug ‘crimes’ – matters not,” Bernish says. “A court verdict of not guilty doesn’t even guarantee the return of state-thefted property.”

She says the bill also severely curtails the right to travel freely with more than $10,000 in cash. To do so, a citizen will need to file a report with the U.S. government. Other assets that would be at risk for violations of the law include bank accounts, prepaid cards, gift cars, prepaid phones and prepaid coupons. Violators face prison terms of 10 years.

“And if that weren’t enough, this bill also gives them with new authority to engage in surveillance and wiretapping (including phone, email, etc.) if they have even a hint of suspicion that you might be transporting excess ‘monetary instruments,'” reports Simon Black of SovereignMan.com. “Usually wiretapping authority is reserved for major crimes like kidnapping, human trafficking, felony fraud, etc. Now we can add cash to that list.”
