The Government Mafia Will Steal Everything You Own

The G20 told you on November 20, 2014, they plan to steal your bank account. Secretary of Treasury, Jack Lew, has positioned the federal government to steal back federal pensions and now your local police can rob you blind for the crime of going out in public.

When the American Police Become As Corrupt As the Mexican Federal Police

After moving to the border state of Arizona, I learned quickly that it isn’t prudent to drive a car into Mexico because the Federal Police like to pull over “American-looking” tourists  and shake them down for cash (yes, Virgina, the Mexican national police force does profile).
The practice of Mexican police harassing traveling Americans for their cash is so prevalent, most insurance companies require a special rider on one’s insurance policy before covering a car trip into Mexico.

I used to think that this abuse of traveling Americans was just a “Federal Police” problem and could never happen here. However, as I opened both of my eyes and saw the big picture, I realized that American law enforcement was doing the same thing and that the American officers were much more efficient at theft by cop than are the Mexicans.

While a Mexican Federal Policeman might shakedown a tourist for $50 in cash, the American officials are more adept at stealing houses, businesses and large amounts of cash even when the cash is not connected to a crime. In short, the government mafia is determined to steal your every asset.

What Is RICO?

The American government never runs out of clever ways to separate its citizens from their money. There is a relatively new game in town that has really picked up steam and this American game is called theft by law enforcement, (aka RICO). Much of the growth of federal criminal procedures has been tied to the expanded use of RICO. RICO stands for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1970. RICO has succeeded in blurring the lines between state and federal law enforcement and in overturning the protections inherent in the due-process guarantees of the U.S. Constitution, namely due process. The Fifth Amendment states that government cannot deprive citizens of life, liberty and property without due process of law. As the Patriot Act negates the Fourth Amendment protections, RICO does the same with the Fifth Amendment due process rights.

RICO is essentially the seizure of goods and assets obtained as a result of ACCUSED criminal activity. At the inception of RICO in 1990, there were only three named federal criminal acts subject RICO confiscation of assets and they were treason, piracy, and counterfeiting. Now there are literally thousands of federal laws and regulations related to RICO. The mere violation of any one of them, no matter how unintentional and harmless the transgression, can lead to years of imprisonment for the convicted person and the forfeiture of all personal assets.

Here is where the police and federal law enforcement are no better than the criminals they purport to fight. Even when an individual is not charged or found innocent, their confiscated assets are still the property of the law enforcement agency. If a person is found not guilty in court, or the charges are dropped, the person can spend years trying to recover their assets. And sometimes, they never recover their stolen property.

 Even Canada Condemns America’s Theft By Law Enforcement

American law enforcement is so out of control that even Canada has issued a public service announcement that warns Canadian travelers that American road pirates, meaning American police officers, might rob them upon their entry into the United States. The Canadian government states that there has been 61,000 incidents of road piracy; resulting in a booty of over $2.5 billion.

American law enforcement is adept at pulling over a motorist, subsequently finding cash, culminating in the unwarranted seizure of that cash. The government does not have to charge one with a crime in order to seize any cash and the burden of proof is on the citizen to get their money back. About 16% of people suffering through government initiated cash forfeitures ever challenge the seizures in court because of the legal expense involved.


Some might try and say that this money and property is obviously “taken from criminals” in order to rationalize this theft on a massive scale. However, as is evident in the case of Mr. Willis, the government does not have to charge you with a crime, let alone convict you, to take your property and after they steal your property the burden of proof is on you to get it back.


Gangster Cops in Meridian MS.

During a July 9 traffic stop in Meridian, Mississippi, police found $360,000 tucked away in an obscure compartment of a man’s car. Certainly the amount of money in question would get our collective attention, however, the driver was let go. And if the Meridian city government has a problem with large amounts of cash, then pass a law forbidding the carrying of cash over a certain amount. Until then, this man committed no crime.

The cops simply stole the man’s money. The unidentified motorist may or may not get that cash back.

Under RICO all cops can seize your property, and it’s up to you to prove that the money isn’t connected to a crime. This is an obvious violation of the Fifth Amendment which requires the government to prove in court that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This application of RICO is unconstitutional on its face and it is still being allowed. Why? Because RICO money is being used by the law enforcement agencies to enrich their department as well as to host lavish department/agency parties. This is no different than what the Mafia or the Mexican Federal Police does. And you can count the Federal Reserve in on being part of this new mafia. Because of the practice (i.e. fractional reserve banking) which allows banks to loan out $9 dollars for every dollar deposited, the banks have a vested interest in keeping as much of your cash as possible in the bank and not in your pockets.

Your Property Is Not Safe

For those who think that the Meridian, MS. motorist got what he deserved because nobody should be carrying that kind of cash on them, consider the Russell Caswell case which demonstrates that, under RICO statutes, one can lose everything even when they have never been suspected of a crime.

Motel owner Russell Caswell
, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, has fought with government for three years over his right to keep his own motel. Caswell has never been charged with a crime, yet he faces the loss of his business. Caswell, having successfully managed to keep his property, is the victim of guilt by association. From 1994 to 2008, police have made 15 drug busts at his motel. That come to only one drug bust per year in a motel. This is a remarkably low number. However, it is not stopping law enforcement for trying to get their hands on the motel by stating that under RICO, the motel is considered to be part of a criminal enterprise.

One does not have to be the owner of a motel or carry large amounts of cash to be a victim of the law enforcement Mafia. If you give a ride to someone who has marijuana in their possession, you can lose your car. If your teenage daughter brings drugs into your house, you could lose your house. This is no more than criminal theft committed by criminal law enforcement agencies.

Motives for RICO Enforcement

The money that law enforcement seizes, is money that goes towards the purchase of office equipment, new vehicles, larger expense accounts and the list goes on. However, agency assets are not the only destination for RICO obtained assets.


Sheriff Bill Smith in Camden County, Georgia, spent $90,000 on a Dodge Viper for the county’s Drug Awareness and Resistance Education (DARE) program. According to a sheriff’s spokesman, the whole point of this car is to grab the kids’ attention and by impressing kids, they would stay off of drugs. In the past two decades, Bill Smith’s department brought in over $20 million in asset forfeiture proceeds. The motive to arrest and steal assets is quite clear.

In Romulus, MI., the police chief, Michael St. Andre, spent more than $40,000 in asset forfeiture funds on marijuana, booze, and prostitutes. In many of our communities, the ones with the badges are the prostitutes. And this is not just a case of a few bad apples spoiling the whole bunch. It would be difficult to find an agency or department that is not experiencing RICO corruption.

In a clear violation of the 10th Amendment, the Federal government has made local law enforcement partners in these crimes being perpetrated against the American people through the practice of “equitable sharing agreements” between the Department of Justice and local or state law enforcement. Just like a Mafia protection racket, the Feds typically are taking 10 to 20% of all profits connected to local seizures.


Many of the cash seizures are result of a drug dog tipping off an officer that there are drugs in the car. The is a bogus lead to follow since most cash is tainted with drugs. Eve the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that no portion of the government has the right to seize cash from motorists based only upon a drug-detection dog’s reaction because most money in circulation contains drug residue.

Whether it is your bank account, retirement or your legitimately hard earned cash, government officials are hell-bent on separating American citizens from their cash. Again I say, except for a marginal amount of money needed to pay bills, your cash should reside in your hidden safe at home.

    Dear People,

    What is this called again?

    A “SLAVE STATE.” We have never enjoyed true Liberty, in America, as a matter of fact just after the “ORIGINAL” 13th Amendment was tossed out, we all became SLAVES of the STATE, under the {FAKE 13th Amendment.}
    **Blacks law page 434, YOUR living under “DOMISTIC policy,” Thus you have been told you’re a SLAVE, yet so many of you wish to fight the TRUTH of your circumstances.
    Rather than take YOUR POWER BACK.

    But as Americans as well all people of the world have never taken up their true “SPRIT Authority” we all must suffer at the hands of pure criminal behavior, oddly even elected in some cases by the very slaves who even cheer for their masters victory over the slaves complete ignorance. Go USA.

    When the people of the world retake their true “Sprit Authority” only then can the rapacious nature of the criminal’s whom we all serve with such mindless behavior, such as the likes of thinking: we are free. Only if we take our Sprit Nature back can we ever really “CHANGE.”

    A false promise can only last so long. Sadly we are now 5000 years into it?
    Will the light go on any TIME soon?

    Or will it in fact take the blood of “Billions” more to break the chains of the criminal class, again:
    { The CRIMINAL, justice system.}
    Can anyone figure that simple term out or will ignorance rule until “HUMANS” are replaced by AI?

    Look down into your magic smart I box: slave, keep your eye on the BOX… Never look up, never dream, never experience truth’s, live the LIE. Be Happy like a good little slave should..

    “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matt. 6:19-21

    Still sound advice today…

    The list of woes that mankind is facing gets longer and longer.
    For the common man, it is one step forward and two steps backward. No wonder people are getting snippy. One of the things that gives me hope is the length and depth of the vast pool of American ingenuity, resourcefulness, and skill sets. This country has some very amazing people. If they turn on the master, and abandon all restraint, I believe we have a chance. But so far restraint is viewed as weakness so the bullies boldly pursue us towards the final flash point. When they come face to face with a nation of people that are smarter than they are, it will be an astonishing moment of reality. I am not saying that we are better educated, but certainly we are equipped with more common sense, loyalty, honor, dedication, resolve and resentment. I know this is not across the board, but I believe there are enough good people to prevail. As I am fond of saying; hope springs eternal in the heart of man. Pick your side. Keep in mind that everybody is playing for keeps. “Lets roll,” America!

    This is why the proceeds should go to the schools to take out the temptation to steal from citizens for gain. Then you can ween your schools off of the government funds that keep you enslaved to follow their directives and actually have a nice community instead of the institutionolized school to prison program the gov. pushes on you!

    And “good” cops wonder why they are getting a bad rep?

    Withdrawing cash out of your bank account? Bring in a drug-sniffing dog (under utility animal entitlement statutes) and insist that you get clean money, and if the dog acts out, RICO ACT THEIR ASSES! I don’t know about you, but my credit union has been giving me very, very, very well-worn money, most of which is not even usable, with rips, tears, holes, etc. This is far too common lately. I make them go in the back and get better money, saying something like I pay my pay-as-you-go phone bills at kiosks because AT&T never spares change and if you get it at their window they charge sales tax and God only knows what other fees nowadays. Guess what? Even the money in the back is old and used. Something fishy is going on in the money world, you can bet on it.

    BTW, if you end up with tainted or counterfeit money and you can even prove you got it from your bank (or credit union), it is no longer their responsibility, sometimes as soon as it walks out their front door and, in some cases, as soon as you walk away from the teller window. Just an FYI, in case you were wondering.

    One of my best clients is an attorney. Five years ago he had nearly ten million dollars in cash and assets seized by the FBI. No charges were ever made, but the money and assets were never returned either. He has fought the federal government for five years with every legal trick he knows, to no avail. My client is a good man – to a fault. Despite being an attorney and being well networked with resources, our criminal government stole from this man with impunity.

    The state or city and county should ban this practice by the police department. The job of the policemen is law enforcement and not raising capital. That is a conflict of interest. Instead of crooks being the focus, money now becomes the focus. They are going to drop chasing after the criminals and instead chase after the money. So where’s the people that suppose to raise money?
