Martin: New Attacks on Your Privacy

By Martin Weiss

The government is mounting new attacks on your privacy.

They’re more serious than any I’ve ever seen.

They’re hitting right now.

And they demand swift action by investors.

Brace yourself. Because the facts are frightening …

New Supreme Court Decision

This past Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the IRS can obtain your bank records or even your relatives’ bank records.

All in secret and without prior notice!

Which Justices voted for this? Despite the conservative Court, the ruling was unanimous.

New Fed Controls of Your Bank Accounts

Starting next month, the U.S. Federal Reserve will launch FedNow, its new system for centralizing all banking transactions under its own roof.

The Fed claims it’s simply a tech upgrade of The Clearing House, the old and outdated fund transfer system that’s been in operation since 1853.

But the truth is that …

The Clearing House is owned by the banks. FedNow is directly under the Fed’s control.

The Clearing House effectively excludes nonbank payment systems, such as PayPal, Zelle, and others. FedNow will include them.

Most important, with FedNow, the Federal Reserve will have direct access to a massive, new, centralized database that contains fine details about virtually every dollar you spend, receive or transfer.

NSA and FBI Spying on Innocent U.S. Citizens

Under the Bush and Obama administrations, the NSA and FBI colluded with Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Apple and other big tech companies to illegally invade the email and social media accounts of countless American citizens without their knowledge.

We’re told that this mass intrusion on our privacy was discontinued.

But the only thing that has truly changed is the process.

Nowadays, the government simply sends tens of thousands of data requests to the tech companies each year, and the companies grant roughly 80% of them.

What’s the main difference?

Now, the NSA and FBI collude with Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Apple and other big tech companies to legally invade the email and social media accounts of countless American citizens without their knowledge.

All of this is bad enough. But what really keeps me up at night is how the IRS, Fed, NSA, FBI and other government agencies would likely behave in a “national emergency.”

The emergency could be declared for any number of reasons:

•  Too many Americans withdrawing funds from their banks and credit unions, making it almost impossible for the U.S. banking system to continue normal operations. Sounds familiar? It should because it almost happened just last month.

•  Too many owners of U.S. Treasury securities dumping their holdings in the open market, making it almost impossible for the government to borrow the funds it must have on a daily basis. This almost happened just two weeks ago.

•  Too many people in the United States and around the world selling their U.S. dollars because of all of the above — not to mention their fears of Fed money printing, inflation and recession. Also, very plausible.

What might be the consequences?

It’s too soon to know the specifics.

But history provides abundant clues of how elected — and unelected — government officials typically respond:

They form task forces to ensure close coordination among federal agencies, especially with regard to shared access to government-controlled databases.

Example: The Fed could give key federal agencies access to its FedNow data on nearly all your financial transactions.

They get an emergency waiver to override any remaining legal protections of your email and social media accounts.

Example: The NSA’s and FBI’s PRISM program under Bush and Obama.

And ultimately, the president issues a series of executive orders to impose new restrictions on withdrawals, investments, spending, money transfers, foreign exchange transactions or more.

Examples:

President Roosevelt’s Executive Order 2039 declaring a Bank Holiday and closing all banks on March 6, 1933;

His Executive Order 6102 to confiscate all gold holdings on April 5, 1933;

President Nixon’s order to devalue the dollar on Aug. 15, 1971;

Fed Chair Bernanke’s mandate to launch America’s first mass money printing on Sept. 15, 2008, and many more.

How can you protect yourself?

We give you our answers in my just-released emergency summit.

If you watch it before 11:59 p.m. Eastern tonight and follow my instructions near the end of the video, we will send you an urgent email tomorrow morning with detailed recommendations on what to do right away.

Tomorrow’s email does four things:

1. It opens up first and exclusive access to a rare tangible investment.

2. It gives you access to a sector that’s seen historic gains of 928%, 2,341%, 22,627% and even 447,268%.

3. It gives you the opportunity to buy the investment for a 75% discount from what we think it should be worth today (based on the latest price of other, very similar assets).

Plus, although the investment has nothing to do with cryptocurrencies …

4. It helps investors get away from Wall Street, away from banks and off the radar of government snoops.

Your next step: Watch my video before 11:59 p.m. today.

Then, to get on the list for tomorrow’s landmark email, be sure to follow my instructions near the end of the video.

Good luck and God bless!
