Financial Freedom Ends Today
Starting in July, the Federal Reserve will gain new powers to access and even control your U.S. bank account.
And tomorrow’s the first day of July, which means that …
Today could be your last chance to start moving money off the grid.
And it’s also your last day to watch our instructional video before we take it offline tonight.
Here’s the scoop …
Political analysts often talk about gridlock. They describe in great detail how Congress is unable to move forward with urgently needed legislation because the two parties can't come to an agreement.
The paradox is that there’s a large body of new and old laws that Congress does agree upon, enacting and reenacting them time after time.
These are laws that give government increasingly broader powers to track, spy on and ultimately control its citizens.
All too often, without ever so-saying in public, government officials no longer see us as citizens; they see us as subjects.
They think they’re doing the right thing. But that only makes it worse.
The digitized financial system — along with the rise of the modern digital economy — gives government a tool of unprecedented power:
Massive databases that can be tapped instantly with a single click. Real-time reporting of each individual’s financial transactions and movements. Plus, much more.
And the advent of artificial intelligence only adds firepower to those tools.
Does this mean that a government will always use these tools against its people to invade their bank accounts, control their transactions or seize their assets?
If the Federal Reserve is effectively managing inflation and bank safety without these tools, no.
If law enforcement is effectively preventing and punishing violent crime, no.
If the National Security Agency and FBI are truly protecting America from espionage, cyberattacks and terrorism, no.
But if any branch or agency of government is failing in its core mission, it will naturally push hard to use the powerful tool it has: The grid.
That includes Big Data. Artificial intelligence. Mass surveillance. Denial of freedoms.
Today, the U.S. monetary and fiscal authorities — the Federal Reserve, the Treasury Department, the Comptroller of the Currency and the FDIC — have powers that did not exist during prior financial crises.
They can do things that would have been impossible in the 1930s, the 1980s or even as recently as 2008, when the financial system was on the brink of a global meltdown.
Today, they can easily compel others, like banks or brokers, to give them information in real time about what's happening with your money and transactions.
With these new powers, whenever lawmakers and regulators are unable to resolve a pressing problem, their typical reaction is to pass more laws and regulations aimed at civil society — individuals, nonprofits, churches and all the organizations that people create outside of government.
It’s much easier for them to tell other people what to do than to actually fix the problems themselves. And it’s much easier to create algorithms for automatically tracking and controlling the population than to properly enforce existing laws.
“The Nine Most Terrifying Words in the English Language Are: I’m from the Government, and I’m Here to Help.”
Those were the words of Ronald Reagan during his news conference of Aug. 12, 1986, an unforgettable warning about the dangers of big government.
But now, in the second millennium — especially since Sept. 11, the Great Financial Crisis and COVID — we propose an update:
Today, the most terrifying words are: “I'm from the government and I'm here to keep you safe.” Because keeping you safe means taking away your freedoms.
We also propose an addendum: “I’m from Big Tech, and I’m here to give the government whatever it wants.”
Yes, the focus of the message to you now is how the government is launching attack after attack on your money and your financial freedom.
But many people seem to be equally afraid of Big Tech, including companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft (MSFT) — and for good reason.
Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook is more powerful than many governments, and he's absolutely right. So, the logical thing for our government to do is incorporate that power into governance itself.
As a result, Facebook and the other large tech companies effectively become an extension of government, much as banks have done.
The most egregious example occurred when the NSA illegally collected the phone records of millions of American citizens. Not just once, but for over five years.
They spied on millions of people who were never suspected of any wrongdoing whatsoever.
To do something similar again, all they need is an excuse to declare a “national emergency.”
The emergency could be a giant bank failure, inflation out of control, a stock market crash, a new terrorist attack or worse.
But this time, it won’t be run by the NSA. It will be run by the Federal Reserve.
And this time, they’ll have the power to do it far more efficiently — by tracking all your money, down to the last penny of our bank accounts and financial transactions.
That’s the potential power of the Federal Reserve’s FedNow program, which begins in July 2023.
All of these facts fuel our concern that …
The U.S. Government Is Creating a Veritable Horror Story for Freedom-Loving Americans
And yet, despite these facts, millions of people, including some sophisticated investors, do nothing about it.
It remains complacent, with its head in the sand.
Don’t fall into that trap.
See my video. Then decide what you believe is best for you.
After today, this opportunity ends, and it will be impossible to access the video.
Good luck and God bless!
