The Government Mafia Will Steal Everything You Own

 Dave Hodges

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.

The Government Mafia Will Steal Everything You Own

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?

uncle same civilian asset forfeiture

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 caswell

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

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.


when did this become this

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.

    The bottom line on theft by LEO is to change your spending patterns and vote with your wallet. Deny the cities income and sooner or later they are going to realize that the policing polices have a negative impact on their incomes. Follow this process up with VOTING out bad mayors and civic leaders and demand that they have a police management process that is community based. I’ve now been doing this method for 5 years. I figure I am denying the city about $1500 in sales tax revenues per year, and moving more than $20,000 per year in purchases outside of the county by purchasing on line.

    GO to the BANK. Meet with a Bank Mid or higher level manager. And order brand new sequential serial number non touched money from the Federal Reserve Bank (this was no cost to me), takes about 7 to 10 days. Have the bank manager wear protective gloves when they count the money out in front of you. It will come in bundles of 100 bills. Get $20’s, $5’s, and $1’s. If the bank manager ask you why you want new bills., then tell them you want clean money that has not been touched by a drug dealer or users, so that there is no risk some drug sniffing dog starts barking during traffic stops, and you don’t want Police Officers to harass you, seize your money, or cause the dog to scratch the paint job on your car. I’ve done this quite a few times, and use that money to buy food. Buy a brand new wallet with RFID capability (good ones for $20 on Amazon). Carry the rock bottom minimum amount of cash on your person that you need for the moment. I buy all food with CASH. Buy a new wallet every couple of years. Make exact change for your purchases. Carry a coin purse. Don’t take possibly drug tainted bills back from the stores and if you do, don’t put it in your wallet. I buy everything else with a credit card (1 to 3% cash back).
    After getting bogus traffic tickets and being pulled over so many times (seems like they are just trying to get my permission to search my car). I’ve had officers pull me over for made up reasons. After 60 minutes of looking in my windows and demanding to search inside cars, refusing, they finally let me go, and have even admitted that they pulled me over for the sole reason that they have to make so many stops per day, that they did not recognize my new car or me as a driver (this clearly presents a message that you are a target for merely driving into town and for no other reason than to pull you over to seize your assets). I got stopped two times the first day I drove my little Red Honda Civic into town. I took the car back home and drove my wife’s Subaru sedan, got pulled over a third time for an alleged crossing a nonexistent bike lane (I demanded the officer walk me over to the street and show me, to his surprise the county did not paint the last 100 yards of the bike path stripe, thus no violation could be established).
    I now avoid going into town as much as possible. I use to drive from county to city about 1 time per day. I am now down to about 2X per week. My fuel bill is down 60% from 5 years ago. I drive into town mostly during peak traffic hours (apparently LEO’s are less likely to drive in very high traffic flows). I now buy nearly everything I need (except food) online and Amazon. Use Amazon for base price then check each item to see if it is cheaper elsewhere before I hit the Commit Button (I even go on line to check prices at local stores such as sams club, walmart, autozone, etc) Rarely find anything cheaper in town. Quite often I find things are cheaper on line. Biggest surprises are dealer auto parts. Ford wanted $550 for a new filler neck with rubber hose (salting the roads rotted out the hose). Bought the hose on line for $25 (didn’t need the filler neck >> Ford only sold an assembly). Ironically the Aftermarket hose was better quality than the FORD OEM hose. Put it in myself, saving over $1000 repair bill for $25 and 4 hours labor.
    I contacted police department about last bogus ticket which was at 11pm on a moonless night where a LEO was behind me more than 1/2 mile (no lights at intersection either) who gave me a ticket for his claim I had rolled thru a stop sign. Police department desk sergeant said this was a STRETCH, he would not have issued the ticket. But he refused to do anything about it. I advised desk officer that I would boycott the local city until I got 10X my traffic school fee back and for a period of 2 years (I figure this has been more like 40X now since I buy mostly on line). The two year mark is important as a second ticket causes the first one to add it’s original points and invokes another round of insurance increases).
    I studied the ticket revenue process and figured out that each person in county would get 1.5 tickets per year and that with ticket fees and increased insurance cost, this would cost each family about $1000 per year due to ticket fees (1.5 X $250 plus insurance increases $300 per driver X 2). Since most people here have average income of about $40K per year per family and a loss of $1000 per year means something is given up. The $1000 goes out of county. Thus the county is actually exporting $1000 in cash flows and gets back about $8 per ticket, rest of the $250 ticket fee goes to state. Some LEO’s teach traffic school for pocket change, however, I opted to use training on line and export that fee outside of the county. People then stop going to restaurants, movies, buying stuff. Business have been closing down here (more lost sales tax revenue to the city / county). Restaurants are ½ full compared to 5 years ago. This process has a negative feedback loop associated with it. I now go on line to buy just about everything. It’s cheaper, less time spent, no fuel costs, less wear and tear on the cars. I’m down from 15K miles per year to 6K on my car (Another $3K loss of sales taxes every 8 years in sales tax losses). This doubles the life of the vehicles and cuts down annual maintenance. I’ll buy New tires every 8 years instead of 4. Bought new Hondas instead of Ford to reduce my maintenance costs (even less money going to the city). Bottom line is that these excessive stops and thefts by LEO are being met by people that figure out they need to avoid the cities. The cities loose sales tax monies far in excess of what is stolen from the citizens. Sure the cops get new toys but the cities loose income. It’s a negative game for the cities and counties. At some point the cities will see reduced income, reduce benefit from income by LEO’s and be forced to lay off police officers (probably a good thing). This has actually happened in many parts of our state. One of our friends, a sheriff officer, was laid off due to budget cuts in his county. His county was so hard up that he had to write tickets for 1 mph over the speed limits (pretty trivial).
    Fortunately after I provided the detail analysis to the local city police desk sergeant, the number of cars getting tickets is substantially reduced. The desk sergeant took detailed notes and advised me he would work with police managers and it would be likely they would work with city council members. The police desk sergeant did state he noticed that traffic was down, businesses were closing, and restaurants were no longer full to capacity. However, the fear factor over the possibility of being pulled over, getting bogus tickets, theft by LEO’s, and potentially injured / Killed by LEO’s is so great now that people are avoiding the cities fore even more reasons.
    As stated at the top of this blog >> Citizens have enormous power via their spending patterns and voting rights. Denying the cities income is very powerful event for you and your friends. Reducing income is very powerful motivator to change. Further, exercise your voting rights and demand that people who run for public office have a stated objective to manage the use of the local LEO’s to help the community and not to steal the wealth of citizens, force this issue to be in the public domain.
