Against the National Will

America is made less safe through Leftist immigration policy, as evidenced over the last eight years. Illegal aliens rob, rape and murder millions of Americans each year, because Leftist activist judges have said these illegals have “a right” to simply appear in our country, and Leftist mayors of U.S. cities refuse to enforce sound and logical U.S. immigration law already in existence, creating “sanctuary cities”. Their combined anti-American actions are directly responsible for so much misery, loss and heartache for American citizens they have sworn an oath to protect, and they have placed our U.S. national sovereignty in jeopardy.

 

Too many Americans blindly accept the fallacies and outright lies from the Left, that illegal aliens have “a right” to self-immigrate and a “birthright” to U.S. citizenship for any of their children born in America. These are weapons that Leftist judges use in their rulings to undermine our U.S. Constitution and move closer to an open border policy intent on fundamentally transforming our culture and society and ending American traditions, based on equality under the law, that preserve freedom and liberty for all Americans.

 

Whenever anyone witnesses Leftist protests from Sacramento to Seattle and New York to Atlanta, or points in between, LARAZA [FrontPageMag, DTN & Human Events] and Red Communist flags, the Hammer and Sickle, are readily seen everywhere, along with the black flag of the Islamic State. These people — all of them — in one form or fashion seek the fall of America and the eradication of our current U.S. Constitution, and as such, they indicate that they are outside the jurisdiction of the U.S., that their allegiances lie elsewhere rather than with the United States of America.

 

The author of the 14th Amendment, Senator Jacob Howard, defined who fell within the jurisdiction of the United States: “Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to [the states’] jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural and national law, a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the [U.S.] who are foreigners [and] aliens …”. Pointing to natural law indicates the republican basis for citizenship is consent of the country.

 

On May 30th, 1866, Senator Lyman Trumbull stated that the jurisdiction clause includes those “not owing allegiance to anybody else … It’s only those persons … that we think of making citizens; and there can be no objection to the proposition that such persons should be made citizens.

 

Read deeper in the Congressional Record of the day [NationalPublicLibrary.com & Justia.com (note 1268)], and one finds that most Congressmen intended “jurisdiction” to be viewed in the context of “in extent and quality as it applies to every citizen of the United States now” and “in every respect”. They also agreed that high crimes and treason could be used as grounds to revoke one’s citizenship.

 

Approximately 118 jurisdictions in the United States currently serve as sanctuaries for dangerous illegal aliens. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported that 279 counties and cities refused to detain and deport illegal aliens last year, even though a high percentage of them were Unaccompanied Alien Children who were violent gang members of MS-13.

 

Recently, a 14 year old girl was raped and sodomized repeatedly by two Unaccompanied Alien “Children”, who pulled her into a bathroom at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, a sanctuary area for illegal aliens. One of her attackers, Henry Sanchez, an 18 year old Guatemalan, has a pending deportation case against him; both he and 17 year old Jose Montano, from El Salvador, were charged with first degree rape.

 

Hesham Mohamed Hadayet came to America on a tourist visa and immediately applied for asylum due to persecution in Egypt. They were “persecuting” him, because he was a member of Gama’a Islamiyya, an Islamic terrorist group. But thanks to Barney Frank’s 1989 amendment to the Immigration and Naturalization Act, he couldn’t be blocked from coming to America.

 

In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged they had lost track of millions of people overstaying their visas. Two years later, they lost track of 266 dangerous foreigners that posed “national security or public safety concerns”, according to the Director of Homeland Security.

 

Are these the type of people Americans really wish to give U.S. citizenship? Citizenship is a privilege, not a right as some Leftist judges assert.

 

In a statement on March 27th, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned sanctuary cities across America to enforce U.S. immigration law and cooperate with federal authorities or lose federal funding. He made it clear that any failure to correct violations of 8 U.S.C. Section 1373 could result in the termination of all future Office of Justice grants. Sessions added that Kate Steinle’s murder in San Francisco two years ago, by an illegal alien, was a direct result of San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor federal detainer warrants.

 

Denying anyone entry into the country, especially for security concerns, is the sovereign right of our nation. The rulings from U.S. District judges such as James Robart, Leonie Brinkema and Dolly Gee, [GOPTheDailyDose.com & AFA.net] as well as upcoming ACLU lawsuits aimed at Jeff Sessions announcement, that suggest otherwise have absolutely no basis in the Constitution or the U.S. legal code; an affirmative legal right for any foreigner to immigrate to America does not exist, but the legal system is being manipulated to create a default “right” to immigrate, damaging our sovereignty and infringing upon our right to self-government, in the name of open borders.

 

Detailed in government statistics, twenty-five people are killed each day in America by illegal aliens. What is the affirmative case for such an insane policy? How does it make America better?

 

The current federal court systems have taken the very same laws used by every other president, and they have made them seem anomalous, unConstitutional, even illegal, when President Trump attempts to use them. These courts are overreaching their powers and abrogating the Constitution, when they allow illegal aliens and Muslims, outside the bounds of accurate security assessments, to remain in the country against the national will.

 

Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime, but Commie Progressive Democrats seem to be more concerned with protecting the rights of illegal aliens from Central America and the Middle East more than they care to protect the person, rights and life of any U.S. citizen. They would rather protect the privileges of well-connected elitists and LARAZA, ACLU commies and Muslim Brotherhood [CAIR] terrorists. But what about the right of a teenage girl to be protected from being raped by illegal aliens — the rights of millions of Americans to be protected from being maimed and murdered by the Sons of Mohammed?

 

No American who loves his country can allow this total disregard for our Constitution to stand. The President and Congress must forcefully and definitively squash the Courts’ power over this issue and remove their inordinate power. Otherwise, America will become unrecognizable, a mere shadow of Her former glory.

9/11: A Threat Assessment


al-Baghdadi- Our Appt in NY

This threat assessment by Justin Smith is an examination of the threat to America’s National Security from Islamic terrorism and Obama’s failure to address properly that National Security issue.

9/11: A Threat Assessment

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 9/7/2014 7:22 PM

 

This September 11th America is once again under an intense terror threat from the Islamofascists and the Islamic State. While many Americans reflect on the horror of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks, innocent Americans falling 100 stories and trapped under burning rubble, and the violent and vicious attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, our leaders must now join together in several courses of action to defeat the ideology of Islam at home and abroad, especially in light of ongoing genocides against Christians in Iraq and Syria and the recent beheadings of two Americans.

 

Whether one believes our war is a cultural clash with Islam or, as Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron recently stated, “a poisonous ideology of Islamic extremism that is condemned by all”, in brief, history shows that ISIS is actually implementing Islam exactly in the manner of Mohammed; history also shows that the Wahhabist philosophy followed by ISIS and the members of Al Qaeda and al-Nusra has been supported by the House of Saud since 1740, all of which are directly involved in global terrorism, along with their Muslim Brotherhood allies from Egypt’s Al Azhar University.

 

Wafa Sultan is a Syrian psychologist who left the Alawite sect of Islam, and she flatly asks, “What is this ‘moderate’, this ‘extremist’ Islam? I never heard such a thing in Syria growing up. Islam is Islam.” Ms. Sultan has made the point in numerous writings that “moderates” and “extremists” are purely a western invention, a myth.

 

The ISIS threat was known to the Obama administration well over a year ago, and yet, on September 3rd Obama admitted “We don’t have a strategy yet.” And on the heels of this admission, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel stated, “… we are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens, who have U.S. passports, who are fighting with ISIL forces. There may be more. We don’t know.”

 

Last year, Moyer Abu Salha, a twenty-two year old American citizen from Florida, went to Syria for terror training. He subsequently returned to the U.S. for a visit, before he went back to Syria and conducted a suicide-bombing for al-Nusra in May 2014.

 

Abdirahmann Muhumed, a 29 year old Somali-American, worked for Delta Airlines before he left the U.S. to fight for al-Shabab, with 39 others, and was killed on the battlefield, just as Troy Kastigar, a close friend of Douglas McArthur McCain, was killed in 2009 after joining al-Shabab in Somalia. McCain was killed in Syria weeks ago, fighting alongside ISIS. All three were from an area in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a large Muslim population and a mosque tied to anti-American propaganda and advocacy for Islamic supremacy.

 

As Muslims increasingly press for concessions to Islamic norms in America, seeking to superimpose Sharia law doctrine over Western principles, the U.S. Congress must halt all Islamic immigration in a sensible, self-preserving measure for America. And common-sense dictates that the U.S. must also stop the ideological subversion by Saudi and the Council on American and Islamic Relations lobby groups that place spies in our military and the upper echelons of U.S. government and terror recruiters in our prisons, as they bribe our State Dept. officials and national security advisors; close your eyes and CIA Chief John Brennan sounds like a Saudi Muslim.

 

Recently, many Americans were appalled and angered to hear the British islamofascist Anjem Choudary tell FoxNews host Sean Hannity, “get ready _ America will be under Sharia law.” Choudary is suspected of recruiting scores of British Muslims to fight for ISIS.

 

Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) recently queried the FBI about American citizens fighting for ISIS and other terror groups. She asked, “Once they’re done fighting … what’s going to happen if they try to return?” The FBI replied, “Well, they’ll come into the country.” Bachmann continued, “Are you kidding me? We are not going to stop them from coming into the United States?” [Blog Editor: Bachmann-Beck interview]

Even though Findlaw.com and Senator Jim Rubens (R-NH) hold that “Natural born U.S. citizens may not have their citizenship revoked against their will” [Blog Editor: Rubens’ assertion], hasn’t one willingly abandoned their U.S. citizenship when they take up arms for an enemy of the U.S.?

 

One must certainly agree with Rep Bachmann, who made the following statement regarding her proposed legislation: “ISIS has declared the United States as their enemy. Once you join an enemy army … you should, by definition, lose your American citizenship, therefore your passport. You should have no ability to get back into the United States.”

 

But what about Obama’s open door policy? Isn’t this a severe national security breach and an impeachable offense?

 

According to Judicial Watch, intelligence officials believe a terrorist attack by ISIS and Al Qaeda, along the border between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, is so imminent [Blog Editor: JW link] that Command Maj. Gen. Sean McFarland is being briefed at Ft Bliss. The DHS, Justice and Defense Dept. agencies have been placed on alert concerning this imminent threat and the mention of “car bombs and vehicle born improvised explosive devices.” [Blog Editor: NRO confirms]

 

What happens if the Islamic State acquires biological, chemical or nuclear weapon grade material?

 

Obama’s September 3rd message did not instill any further confidence that Obama and company would really do all that they could to ensure America’s national security, as Obama stated: “The primary U.S. objective is to degrade and destroy ISIS so that it’s no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States.” This from the president whose policies created this crisis, who helped fund and arm ISIS from the beginning and who now says he will “shrink” ISIS “to the point where it is a manageable problem.” [Blog Editor: HERE, HERE & HERE]

 

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) angrily retorted, “Terrorists who behead Americans are not ‘manageable’. They must be stopped, and we need President Obama to communicate a clear strategy … on how he plans to eliminate this threat.” [Blog Editor: Blunt retort]

 

The American people’s determination to defeat this new terror threat from ISIS and terror in general from the Islamofascists everywhere should not be underestimated. Americans remember the more than 3000 dead or missing and countless more lives devastated, as pregnant widows were left behind and two thousand children lost a parent on 9/11. Americans recall the images of our Ambassador Chris Stevens being dragged through the streets of Benghazi. Our leaders must resolve that we will not wait until there is another 9/11 before we destroy the Islamic State murderers and scatter their ashes before us.

Presidential Liar and Abuse of Power


BHO - Excuse me not done lying yet

John R. Houk

© November 22, 2013

 

Prior to President Barack Hussein Obama’s election in 2008 and about a couple of years afterwards I was a supporter of the Birther Movement. Birthers have been out of the news lately so if you have forgotten or are unaware what the Birthers stand for it goes something like this:

 

Birthers believe President Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya thus disqualifying him from eligibility for the Office of President of the United States. Further Birthers believe Obama’s Hawaii Birth Certificate is a forgery created by extreme Leftists to allow Obama to be a kind of Manchurian Candidate representing interests counter to the U.S. Constitution.

 

My evolution as a Birther went from stalwart believer, to believer but the power of the Office of POTUS would never allow a successful exposé, to abandoning the Birther Movement because I do believe Obama was born in Hawaii all the way to the present where there is a big “BUT” about birth issues. That big “BUT” runs something like this:

 

President Barack Hussein Obama was indeed born in Hawaii; however his mother married a Muslim Indonesian and immigrated with him to Indonesia along with her son “Barry”. Somewhere along this line of moving from the USA to Indonesia Obama became Barry Soetoro with his stepfather’s last name. He was registered as a Muslim in an elementary school in Indonesia. At some point he came back to the USA to live with his grandparents on his mother’s back in Hawaii. Now it is in Obama’s immigration status where his eligibility for POTUS may get sketchy.

 

Obama’s stepfather Lolo Soetoro registered Barry into Fransiscus Assisi School at Jakarta, Indonesia. Barry went from the Catholic school to the prestigious Besuki Public School. The Besuki School was once called Carpentier Alting Stichting Nassau School founded by the Dutch for Dutch colonialists in Indonesia. In 1962 the Dutch school was taken over by the Indonesian government. The Indonesian government transformed the renamed Besuki School in a prestigious school catering to Indonesian elites. By the time Barry transferred to Besuki his stepfather Lolo Soetoro had an influential government job, thus enabling Barry to attend. It is at the Besuki School that a guessing game emerges about our current POTUS.

 

A Blaze investigative journalist team led by Charles C. Johnson speculates that Barry could not have attended the Besuki School unless he was an official Indonesian citizen probably by virtue of stepfather Lolo adopting him. Of course Indonesian citizenship in and of itself would not have meant that Barry surrendered his American citizenship because he was not of the age of majority to make such a decision. So obviously the Birther issue is not an election issue for President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

(Stanley) Ann Dunham sent Barry and his half-sister Maya (fathered by Lolo – born in Indonesia) back to Hawaii to be educated in Hawaii. As Barry Soetoro Obama citizenship was declared as Indonesian even though it does stipulate he was born in Hawaii. Obama graduates from a private school in Hawaii called Punahou School. Obama attended Punahou School from 1971 (5th Grade) through to graduation in 1979. Relatively recently a fellow High School level student – Mia Marie Pope – claims Obama at the very least implied he was a foreign student of sketchy character that she guessed was a homosexual in man/boy relationships with old white men. BUT Obama supporters point out Ms. Pope might be trying to exploit the past by smearing Obama because there are other credible former classmates that provide a glowing picture of Obama’s character. Just like the impotence of Birther claims about Obama, Ms. Pope’s claim will do nothing to Obama’s present status as POTUS except perhaps to establish that which many Americans are already discovering (Huge scandal list); viz., that Obama lies to further his personal plans.

 

The thing that is sketchy is that Maya Soetoro retained her last name (until marriage) but what about Barry Soetoro? When did Barry the Indonesian become Barack Obama the Natural Born Citizen of America? Barry came to the USA/Hawaii to begin school at the 5th grade level at a prestigious private school. Obama supporters might ask, “Who cares when Soetoro became Obama when Obama was born on American soil in Hawaii?” AGAIN, this is where the Birther issue is a dead issue. The issue is: How was Obama perceived as a citizen while attending school – elementary, secondary and college – in America? Did Obama receive an education based on being a foreign subsidized student from nation of Indonesia?

 

I can understand Obama’s school records in Indonesia are not complete. After all in the 1960s and 1970s Indonesia was basically a Third World nation, just beginning to operate as an independent nation free of Dutch colonial rule. In America school records were not then nor now sketchy. AND YET, Obama has gone to great lengths to keep those school records from America away from the public weal. Especially in the case of college, did Obama attend Occidental and Columbia and perhaps Harvard as a foreign exchange student receiving foreign discounts academically?

 

AGAIN, Obama supporters should ask, “What does it matter if Barack Obama the Natural Born Citizen received foreign benefits to attend American colleges? After all Obama was still born on American soil, right?”

 

AND AGAIN, I stipulate Obama’s birth is NOT the issue! The issue is did Obama defraud colleges with a foreign status that might have included taxpayer money to attain his academic credentials? Fraud would be illegal, right? And if Obama committed fraud, how in the world did such a history escape the notice of law enforcement or Presidential vetting? Let’s say there was nothing illegal in the process (frankly I just don’t know), shouldn’t

American voters have been privy that Obama lied somewhere along his career line on his way to the Office of POTUS in 2008 AND AGAIN in 2012?

 

In the meantime Barack Obama has been using the power of the POTUS to keep an eye on his critics and detractors. Of course Obama is not fond of the Birthers. The Birthers may be wrong at pushing the – where was he born? – agenda, but the intrusive demand of Birthers to examine documents and records that will taint Obama’s reputation as an egomaniac Marxist liar (Andrew McCarthy on Obama lying) has been something Obama has prevented from the public eye (SA HERE).

 

One such Birther big dog is Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse. Arpaio has been a thorn in Obama’s side by examining what documents are available. He is convinced the Obama Birth Certificate is a fraudulent forgery. The actual document in and of itself may indeed by a forgery; nonetheless there is plenty of evidence from other locations that Obama was born in Hawaii. BUT STILL Obama is a proven liar and his insistence to keep his school records and early documentation in the dark is nearly unprecedented among past U.S. Presidents. So how does President Barack Hussein Obama prevent Sheriff Arpaio from stumbling upon some actual smoking gun documentation that indisputably shows the President as a fraud and liar that may indeed include some prosecutable legal infractions? Use the power of the Executive Order and his sycophant Attorney General to harass the good Sheriff to keep him busy.

 

In a recent fund raising email Sheriff Arpaio lists how Obama has used his powers to keep the Sheriff busy. You can read that list because I am going to post that email to simply demonstrate how Obama abuses his power and authority as President of the United States. Whether you donate to Sheriff Arpaio’s plea for funding is totally up to you.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio: I’m Under Attack

 

By Joe Arpaio

Sent From the Desk of Sheriff Joe Arpaio

 

Fellow Patriot,

I need your help.

Let me lay it out for you. I continue to be under attack by Barack Obama’s federal government.

Two years ago, the Obama Justice Department sued me for so-called “civil rights” violations which turned out to be purely politically motivated, based on the timing of their lawsuit. Filed just months before the election, it was a blatant attempt on their part to influence my re-election as Sheriff.

But I won with your support.

Then, just two months after I was re-elected after being targeted by the media and millions of dollars in outside special interest groups, a recall campaign was launched against me.

But I beat them with your support.

Then, in the middle of the recall effort a federal judge claimed that my office engaged in racial profiling while we were enforcing illegal immigration laws. My office was following the guidelines that were laid out to us by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Yet, I’m the one they pin the “racial profiling” label on.

That same judge has now ordered a “federal monitor” to oversee the actions of my office. This is an egregious attempt by the federal government to take over my office and keep me from doing the job I was elected to do.

Shortly after that judge’s ruling, another federal judge ruled that we can no longer detain illegal immigrants that pay a coyote, or professional smuggler, to sneak them across our borders! You see, Arizona passed a law years ago that made human smuggling a crime. Yet, in every other instance, paying someone to break the law for you means that you too are guilty of a crime. But now, a federal judge is saying local law enforcement has no power to detain these criminals.

Do you see a pattern here? The federal government is going out of their way to tie the hands of my office and my deputies to enforce the law – and take over the office of a constitutionally elected Sheriff! This is unacceptable and it is why we are appealing these rulings. We’ll go all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. This aggression will not stand.

But you know how pervasive and aggressive the federal government can be, especially under Barack Obama’s Justice Department.

Maricopa County in Arizona has been the gateway into the United States for illegal immigrants, human smuggling, drug-trafficking and illegal weapons for years now. But I’m the bad guy for trying to stop it?

That’s why I need your immediate support today. Will you stand with me by following this link and making an instant online contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more?

I am sure this is not the end of it. They’ll keep coming after me until I completely surrender. That’s not going to happen. I’m going to continue doing the job I was elected to do, and the job the people want me to do.

I’ve spent 50 years in law enforcement, including as a top official with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration around the world, and 21 years as Sheriff. I’m not about to back down to a bunch of political threats from a federal government that is simply out of control.

Between the federal government harassing me, radical activists protesting and burning me in effigy, and the numerous death threats against me and my family, it would be easy to surrender in this fight, retire from office and go away. But I won’t do that.

I’m going to keep fighting for what I know is right. I took an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution and I will keep that oath until my last breath.

But I need your help. You’ve been such a strong supporter that I must ask for your help again.

Will you show your immediate support and stand with me by following this link and making an instant online contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more?

I have already filed the necessary paperwork to run for another term – much to the angst and consternation of my political opponents. They would just rather see me worn down and defeated but they have no idea how much more fight I have left in me.

But I cannot do it alone.

Will you please make a contribution to “Elect Sheriff Joe Arpaio” today? Your help and support will give me the resources I need to stand and fight against these groups that wish to see me go away.

And, a new law was recently passed here in Arizona that raises the contribution limits for my campaign. Those new limits are now $5,000 per person, which covers the primary and general election cycles. I know that’s a lot, so any amount you can give today, $500, $250, $100, $50 or even $35, is greatly appreciated.

Please click here to make a contribution today. I would be forever grateful if you would continue supporting my efforts and send a signal to my political opponents that I’m not done fighting just yet!

Thank you for everything you have done. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

 

Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Maricopa County, Arizona

P.S. Please don’t delete this email. It’s clear there is a pattern here that shows the federal government is coming after me. They don’t want me to expose their hypocrisy in enforcing illegal immigration laws and it doesn’t fit their political agenda. I’m up against the most powerful government in the world and I need your help today! Thank you.

P.P.S. We must get the word out about this. Please do me one more favor after making a contribution please forward this email to at least five of your friends or family members who share our values in upholding the Rule of Law! Again, I thank you for your support.

Eduardo Saverin - Facebook cofounder

John R. Houk

I have to admit my first thought on someone who renounces their citizenship to the still freest nation in the world is to screw that person over, even if it is to tax the cheese out of them. However, calmer moments of thought lead me to believe in Liberty more than anger.

 

The blurb of President Washington allowing Americans to leave for Great Britain because they favored British rule is a good story of Liberty. Nonetheless a big dog like Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin that leaves the same USA that made him rich should be made more difficult to continue business in the USA.

 

After further investigation I discovered that Saverin is moving to tax haven Singapore. If Brazilian born Saverin actually resides in Singapore he may have to go underground with his reputed playboy ways. Singapore is NOT real big on the Liberty thing like the good old USA. I don’t know though, Singapore’s courting of the world’s wealthy to avoid socialist style taxation may look the other way. I’m not sure if there rule of law enforcement for the average guy and rule of law looking-the-other-way for the wealthy or the immigrant wealthy.

 

Saverin still is a Brazilian citizen in the land of his birth. Since Saverin does not reside in Brazil and Facebook is an American company/corporation I think Saverin is safe from capital gains taxes from Brazil.

 

All I can say is that Saverin is abandoning U.S. Liberty for money, ergo no more U.S. protection for him.

Those Fleeing Obama’s America: Prepare to be taxed

 

By David Rushton

November 28, 2012

Canada Free Press

 

Senator Charles Schumer has recently proposed a new law to tax Americans heavily for leaving the United States. It was in reaction to the news that Eduardo Saverin, co-founder of Facebook, had renounced his American Citizenship and was taking his $2 billion dollars in capital gains with him.

 

Schumer proposed to tax him 30%. Sadly John Boehner, Republican, Speaker of the House (I still think he’s a disguised Democrat), said he would support the measure.

 

Schumer must thank Adolph Hitler for this idea. The Fuehrer instituted the Reichsfluchsteuer tax of 25% on Jews leaving the Fatherland in the 1930s. So Herr Schumer has merely taken the basic idea and upped it by 5%.

 

Richard Samuelson, history professor at California State University, San Bernardino, quoted by National Review points to the historical significance of Schumer’s bill.

 

“Schumer’s attack is fundamentally misguided, and reveals a disturbing attitude toward private property. Should it impose such a tax, the American government would be saying that property is no longer truly private.”

 

He goes on to point out that George Washington, in January 1777 made the heart-rending decision to allow his followers to cross to the English side and take all of their property and savings with them if they felt they would be better off under the rule of the King. This was one of the darkest periods of American history, but Washington knew that liberty was of paramount importance and felt he had no right to impound the property of the settlers. His followers were fighting for the liberty to live where they pleased and to be free of arbitrary taxation. Why should it be different now?

 

It is my opinion (and only my opinion at this point) that starting very soon the IRS will begin collecting an exit tax of up to 30% on any of your savings leaving the country. The first stage would be to tax only very large assets but later I believe the ceiling will come down to cover even modest nest eggs because this government is in deep financial trouble. Obama and the Congress continue to spend money at an alarming rate and only your savings can pay the bills.

But you still have time to avoid it.

 

During the 2007 legislative year of the US Congress, a bill entitled “Tax Collection Responsibility Act of 2007” almost became law. This bill sought to impose an exit tax on all persons leaving the USA to take up residence abroad and thereby renouncing permanent resident status in the US, or people who renounced their US citizenship.

 

It was introduced by Rep Charles Rangel (Harlem NY), and co-sponsored by Representatives Earl Blumenauer, Joseph Crowley, John Larson, Sander Levin, John Lewis, Jim McDermott, Kendrick Meek, Earl Pomeroy and Chris Van Hollen. You will be amazed to learn that all of these Congressmen are Democrats. Not one Republican sponsored this bill.

 

As an Independent Republican who thinks that most Democrats are 100% wrong about practically everything, I almost hesitate to mention that I actually liked some things about Charlie Rangel. Of course there were many things I did not like about him too. I saw him as a Democrat who always stood up for his constituents (even if they were wrong). He was a flamboyant, charming, extrovert; a showman who loved publicity. I used to think of him almost as a later version of W.C Fields; a character you love, but you know you should hate. He was a Democrat with a sense of humor and probably the only one unless you count Biden and his humor is singularly unintentional.

 

Charlie distinguished himself in the U.S. Army. He was, in fact, a hero with a Purple Heart and a bronze Star. After leaving the army he attended University and became a lawyer (always a suspicious move in my opinion). In 1971 Charlie won a seat in Congress representing the heavily Democrat district of Harlem. In 2007 he became chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. And that was probably the turning point at which Charlie went bad. He wasn’t really bad – bad, like some other Congressmen, Senators, and Presidents. He fudged his taxes and flirted with the finer points of the law. But, he was bad enough to be forced to resign when, on December 2, 2010; the full House approved a sanction of censure against him. Anyway, Charlie was the sponsor of that tax collection bill because Charlie wanted to keep the money close to home where he could keep an eye on it.

 

Similar bills were put forward many times. None of them passed.

 

Don’t hold your breath citizens. It will come up again soon. So, if you have any plans for leaving the country with your hard-earned savings you had better do it very soon.

 

30% tax on all assets above $600,000. This included the cash value of property and bank accounts

 

The general idea of the “Tax Collection Responsibility Act of 2007” was to discourage people from leaving the United States and taking their savings with them. In essence, it imposed a 30% tax on all assets above $600,000. This included the cash value of property and bank accounts.

 

While similar bills have failed, and Schumer’s may also fail, how long do you think it will be before some of Obama’s thugs bring up a version that will pass? And, how long would it take the next Congress to vote that bill into law?

 

Most people do not have $600,000 anyway, but I’m sure this dedicated President will get to them eventually.

 

Let’s face it people—-the government is in trouble. They have a President who spends money like water. He can’t get his hands on enough of it and he will find many ways to tax you out of all of your savings until he has brought you down to the financial level of his half-brother in his native Kenya. In fact, his avowed aim is to make all men in the world equal in poverty, except for himself, of course. In his philosophy all men are equal except that some are more equal than others.

 

Even before I researched this bill, I knew that Obama would be coming after those who leave the country to live in other lands early on. Few of those who remain in the United States would care about the fate of those who want to leave. Most Americans would not be able to leave anyway and they certainly would want your hard earned savings to be available for their use in the form of welfare. They would be horrified to think someone like you who wants to leave the Obama Utopia would be allowed to take their savings with them.

 

My wife Marcia and I saw this coming ten years ago and that is one of the reasons we felt compelled to find a home in another country. We were never rich. But we took what little we had and invested it in land and real estate seven years ago. We have never regretted that wise move.

 

We pay taxes to the IRS just as we did when living in the United States. The little we owe on our Social Security payments is not worth worrying about. We have not renounced our citizenship and have no plans to do so in the future. We are simply Americans living abroad.

 

This bill may never affect you as long as you move before it becomes law. In past versions it was not retroactive.

 

So, if you buy property abroad before the bill becomes law you should not have to worry. How long this will be I can’t say. But I would suggest that if you plan to move anyway, do it as soon as possible.

 

This message is for those who want to leave and have the means to do so.

Do it NOW. A year from now it may be too late.
