You don’t own yourself — the Federal Reserve does!


You don’t own yourself — the Federal Reserve does.


by Gary Vey for viewzoneFor a while I have been receiving e-mails from a good friend who has asked me to investigate something weird about the Birth Certificates. He wanted me to take a look at them because they have certain numbers and other things printed on them that need an explanation.

When I looked at my own Birth Certificate, I noticed it was a copy of the original. So I went through old boxes and baby books that my Mom had saved before she died and found what I was looking for — my original Birth Certificate. It was brittle and yellowed with decades of age but — wow — it was NOT the original!

What I have learned since is kind of like discovering that you are part of the Matrix. It seems none of us have our original Birth Certificates — they are all copies. And the copies have a serial number on them, issued on special Bank Bond paper and authorized by “The American Bank Note Company.” Huh?

The truth is stranger than fiction. But here it is:

It seems that back in 1913 the United States was short of cash. By the end of World War I, wartime costs had depleted the treasury and there were several really bad financial panics. The country needed to print more money than it had as equity to restore confidence in the money supply and get the economy back on its feet.

When you or I need more money, we use something as collateral and go to a bank for a loan. When a country needs more money it has to go somewhere also. But in 1913 there wasn’t anywhere to go. So the US created the Federal Reserve Act. This established a private central bank (The Federal Reserve Bank) that would regulate the amount of money the US government was allowed to borrow and put in circulation. It also would expect to be repaid, like any bank, with interest.

After only 20 years things went from bad to worse. During Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency, in 1933, the US was unable to pay its debt. The county was bankrupt. The private banks that made up the Federal Reserve demanded their money and Roosevelt responded. He had to use the only thing left of any value to pay the banks and continue doing business with them — the citizens of our country. Us!

Exactly how all this was orchestrated is too lengthy to be addressed here, but this much can be told. The original birth or naturalization record for every U.S. Citizen is on file in the official records in Washington, D.C. (you get to keep a copy!) and the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as collateral for the National Debt!

Within two weeks and three days each Certificate of Live Birth is to be filed in Washington D.C. Evidence reveals that there is even a Federal Children Department established by the Shepherd/Townsend Act of 1922 under the Department of Commerce that appears to be involved in this process in some way. Every citizen is given a number (the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is valued at from 650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed.

This kind of makes you feel a little different when you look at Federal Reserve Chairman, Bernanke, doesn’t it?

OK. Let’s take a pause to look at the Birth Certificates [below]. You will see the red numbers and you will see the fact that it is, in reality, a “Bank Note.” Congratulations — you and I are commodities!

Names in “ALL CAPS” on Birth Certificates

Since the early 1960s, State governments have issued Birth Certificates to “persons” with legal fictional names using “ALL CAPS” names. This is not a lawful record of your physical birth, but rather the acknowledgement of the “birth” of the juristic, all-caps name. It may appear to be your true name, but since no proper name is ever written in all caps (either lawfully or grammatically) it does not identify who you are. The Birth Certificate is the government’s self-created document of title for its new property — you and me! In a way, it makes us a kind of corporation whose company name is the same as our real name, but written in ALL CAPS. This “corporation” then generates taxes and wealth over its lifetime and in this way repays the collateral that Uncle Sam borrowed from the Federal Reserve.

Remember that “Bond” thing printed on the bottom of the certificate?

Bond. I a: A usually formal written agreement by which a person undertakes to perform a certain act (as fulfill the obligations of a contract) . . with the condition that failure to perform or abstain will obligate the person . . to pay a sum of money or will result in the forfeiture of money put up by the person or surety. lb: One who acts as a surety. 2: An interest-bearing document giving evidence of a debt issued by a government body or corporation that is sometimes secured by a lien on property and is often designed to take care of a particular financial need. — Ibid. — Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Law (1996).Banknote. A kind of negotiable instrument, a promissory note made by a bank payable to the bearer on demand, used as money, and in many jurisdictions is legal tender. Along with coins, banknotes make up the cash or bearer forms of all modern money.

Birth certificates are a form of securities called “warehouse receipts.” The items included on a warehouse receipt, as descried at §7-202 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the law which governs commercial paper and transactions, which parallel a birth certificate are:

  • the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored…(residence)
  • the date of issue of the receipt…..(“Date issued”)
  • the consecutive number of the receipt…(found on back or front of the certificate, usually in red numbers)
  • a description of the goods or of the packages containing them…(name, sex, date of birth, etc.)
  • the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by his authorized agent…(municipal clerk or state registrar’s signature)

Birth certificates now appear to at least qualify as “warehouse receipts” under the Uniform Commercial Code. Black’s Law Dictionary, 7th ed. defines:

Warehouse Receipt. “…A warehouse receipt, which is considered a document of title, may be a negotiable instrument and is often used for financing with inventory as security.”

It is not difficult to see that a state-created Birth Certificate, with an ALL CAPS name is a document evidencing debt the moment it is issued.

Once a state has registered a birth document with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a purchase money security interest in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market. The Treasury Department then issues Treasury securities in the form of Treasury Bonds, Notes, and Bills using the bonds as surety for the new securities.

This cycle is based on the future tax revenues of the legal person whose name appears on the Birth Certificate. This also means that the bankrupt, corporate U.S. can guarantee to the purchasers of their securities the lifetime labor and tax revenues of every citizen of the United States/American with a Birth Certificate as collateral for payment. This device is initiated simply by converting the lawful, true name of the child into a legal, juristic name of a person.

Legally, you are considered to be a slave or indentured servant to the various Federal, State and local governments via your STATE-issued and STATE-created Birth Certificate in the name of your all-caps person. Birth Certificates are issued so that the issuer can claim exclusive title to the legal person created thereby.

Sleep well, fellow slaves.

Comments:Hey Gary,

A follow up to your well written and very important investigative article. I just wondered why you stopped just short of telling the whole story to include what i will term the ” Deception Contract Slavery Doctrine” that was adopted and put in place long before 1913 or the Fed or even subject slavery adopted even under the roman empire and earlier cultures of time.

Our Republic system was designed to prevent it by placing the option of being a exempt citizen which are Article 4 Section”The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States”. To things become clear from this reading which first point is that a natural born citizen has “all Privileges” and can become president of the union of states with a capital in DC. as no other citizen by law legally lay claim to this office it is a special class of citizen. The second is that we have this Privilege by way of an entitlement that can be used to contract these “Privileges away for an assumed enrolled benefit.”

This was set up by the 13, 14, and 15 amendments are asset of a hidden banking power structure “Beast” if you will and uses greed, fame, promotes morally detached behavior and indulgences all a fixture its plan to rule the people of the world i.e., Rule the world One world Order folks we are all so fond of these days.

Oddly enough as surely as those families and organizations who have worked this plan many times and on many continents down though the Ages. They don’t seem to be to shy at admitting what the plan is to those they think they can corrupt, and turn to the Dark side of Materialistic greedy behavior. These clever people and those who help them progress against the Natural Born Citizen is that every step to deny these Persons of Interest, their pound of flesh and become here is my most favorite word Immunities of a Natural Born citizen as opposed to a Article 14 Subject Person under the Jurisdiction of All Governments.

Approached from this point of view it becomes plain to see that most of the free people have become tricked into become property by way using British Laws of Admiralty in trading as a structure by moving it from the sea to the land via commerce exchanges and assignment of vessel property from birth to grave by the laws of contract. Therefor the answer to both the immediate problem of the lions, tigers and bears statement “OH GOD we are Freaking Slaves traded by criminally sneaky people with a money making printers pushing us around because we are ….. drum roll please… really Ignorant of the truth of who we are.

We who are Natural Born Citizens are very powerful in this republic and not because we can do this or we can do that. We are powerful because we are born with all immunity. In short what can not happen to anyone rich or poor it can not happen to us. We are immune free from oppression, free to act in commerce in any way we feel necessary and no one can impede us as we are immune to all civil law as a code of commerce yet can apply any law of commerce to aid and abed our action without fear of reprisal without a complaint, grand jury under common law for crimes.



I have known this for a very long time. So the questions that truly need to be raised are: what type of person are you? what kind of citizen are you? are you a slave or not? do you have a choice?

The Good Book says you cannot serve two Masters, right? So whom do you serve?

Are you corporate because they say you are a legal person or are you a natural born person who has God given rights. You see when you pick up the banner of legal person you have supposedly waived your rights for priviledges. It up to you and all of us to announce what kind of person you are.

Unfortuantely for most they have most of us in lock step with the Uniform Commercial Code and the law of contracts. A Birth certificate (registration of birth) is nothing more than a Contract. Did they tell you you were signing a contract. Did you know you didn’t have to register the birth? What ever happened to the family Bible and the recording of births?

To make matters worse they have registered a “bastard” child. They show the father’s name and the mother’s maiden name and not the married name. Now why in the world would they do that? I suspect any contract has to be signed by two witnesses and of course those would be their own birth names

If you think this has all happened by accident you are mistaken. The “banks” own you and all you own. Don’t pay your real estate property taxes and your house is paid off,,,,,guess who really owns it. Your car is never owned by you…..the State owns it. Don’t tag it and watch who gets it.

There is a very good book that everyone needs to read…..The Creature from Jeckyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. The founding of the Federal Reserve. It doesn’t end there.

The FED in not a bank owned and controlled by the U.S. Government. It is owned by International families. So to take it a step further you are owned by foreigners. You body has been collaterallized and a bond has been issued on all your future earnings, your children and all their future earnings. Did they explain this to you in Public School? I think not!

Isn’t finding out the truth such fun? It kind of takes the steam out of your focus….dont it?

There is so much more to understand how our own U.S. government has swindled the American people. Did you know there are three definitions for United States in Black’s Law Dictionary? Why so many? The first two are corporate the third is the united states of America, under the Constitution. Gosh I guess that means the other two are not……… profound.

By contract these bastards can do anything they want and not have to worry whether or not something is Constitutional. When they do they are only giving lip service. When you exchanged your signature on your Social Security Card you exchanged your natural rights for a future economic benefit and is so doing you contracted away your so called freedom. Are you required to have a SS number? No… it any wonder Mexicans can come into the Band of America and open an account without one.

What are we going to do about all this when most folks don’t even know they are not free?

Only God can help us at this point.. Please join in and pray that he will hear our plight.


PS> The book of Revelations also speaks and too the oceans will be the color of blood. Remind you of the red oil slick even the scientists cannot figure out what causes it……..other than oil.

Dear viewzone magazine, you are doing a fine service to those who want to know more. Whoever is not curious these days is missing a basic part of being human. Thanks again for this brilliant and utterly digestible (for a non-US citizen) piece. I hope there will be one or the other comment of serially numbered fellow slaves. Come on people, stir a little to show you are alive.


Fantastic Article! I have been studying this as much as possible, and most of what I find can become a little confusing or just doesn’t have the ring of truth. This was easy to read, and although did not impart new knowledge for me, it put it together in a way that makes it very easy to share. I have made the personal decision to find out as much as possible about correcting this slavery of the soveriegn. Not just for myself, but for others. The one thing I have been unable to find is a easly understood solutions to each aspect of this problem. As this is only the litteral beginning “birth” of the trickery in play. If you have any step by step solutions and or suggestions, please do a piece on that, I would love to use and share. Of course if you have the chance you could email me back. It just gets so confusing with the maritime law, jurisdiction, etc. I have seen alot of conflicting or at least not congruant information. Gotta have my own flag, my own seal, sign stamps to become my own postmaster, remove the house numbers from my address, pick up my mail don’t have it delivered, get rid of my Drivers License, etc, etc. Yet what I have not found are the obvious solutions to the issues created by some of these steps, if even they are necessary. Not to mention… can a soveriegn even vote? How do you get around jobs that want a social security number? How do I stop them from deducting social security insurance, medicad, medicare, and the debt owed to the Fed Reserve they take out called Federal Income Tax? I could use alot of help with this, as well as others. I appreciate this post and any help you can provide.

For Liberty!

The Truth About Your Birth Certificate


Your Birth Certificate Means You Have Been Bonded As A Slave

from Gabrielle

When a child is born, the hospital sends the original, not a copy, of the record of live birth to the State Bureau of Vital Statistics, sometimes called the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS). Each STATE is required to supply the UNITED STATES with birth, death, and health statistics. The STATE agency that receives the original record of live birth keeps it and then issues a Birth Certificate in the corrupted, ALL-CAPS version of the baby’s true name, i.e. JANE DOE SMITH, not Jane Doe Smith.

The Birth Certificate issued by the State is then registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce – – the Executive Office – specifically through their own sub-agency, the U.S. Census Bureau, which is responsible to register vital statistics from all the states. The word registered [ see note 1 below ], as it is used with commercial or legal based equity law, does not mean that the ALL – CAPS name was “merely” noted in a book for reference purposes. When a birth certificate is registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce, it means that the ALL-CAPS legal person named thereon has become a surety, or guarantor, a condition and obligation that is automatically and unwittingly assumed unless you rebut the presumption by effectively noticing them: “It ain’t me.”

“registered” Security – bond — Merriam Webster Dictionary of Law 1996.

SEE Memorandum of Law on the Name by Gordon Warren Epperly

“Guarantor” A person who pledges collateral for the contract of another, but separately, as part of an independent contract with the obligee of the original contract — Duhaime’s Law Dictionary.

It is not difficult to see that a state – created birth certificate with an ALL-CAPS name is a document, evidencing debt the moment it is issued. Once a state has registered a birth document with U.S. Department of Commerce, the Department notifies the Treasury Department, which takes out a loan from the Federal Reserve. The Treasury uses the loan to purchase a bond (the Fed holds a “purchase money security interest” in the bond) from the Department of Commerce, which invests the sale proceeds in the stock or bond market.

So the child just became the slave ….. can you see how this has happened? Until you take control, in other words “rebut”, you will remain the slave. Slaves do not have freedoms………. and that is what we all (or almost all) have been since the day we were born, and our innocent parents , and their parents, and their parents….. before us. Don’t you think it is time that we woke up to the truth?

Go TO, put register in the First box. When the definition screen pops up, put registered in the second box.

The Ugly Truth About Amazon and Online Retailers

For those who have limited opportunities in this economy, temp work may be the only source of income for immigrants, illegal or otherwise. This is predatory capitalism ppl, the only thing worse may be slavery in our prison system, where inmates “voluntarily” work for free. Sheesh! 😦

The Most Revolutionary Act

Permanently Temporary: The Truth About Temporary Labor

VICE News (2014)

Film Review

This is a shocking documentary about the seedy world of temporary warehouse workers who supply America’s big box retailers (eg Walmart, Kmart, Nestle), as well as online merchants such as Amazon. Because they’re technically contract labor employed by staffing agencies, workers have no employment rights. In addition to making minimum wage ($8 per hour), they can be dismissed for complaining about sexual harassment or workplace safety, talking to reporters or failing to use staffing agency vans to get to work. Filmmakers describe one incident in which a temporary worker was accidentally doused with acid and the warehouse refuse to call 911. In the end, a co-worker drove him to the hospital in his truck.

Seventy percent of US consumer goods are imported from overseas. They all end up in super warehouses, where temporary workers unpack, sort and repack…

The End of the Safe Deposit Box for Wealth Storage

On 1 April 2015, Chase bank in the US advised clients who rent safe deposit boxes from them that there would be some changes in their policies. Of particular interest is the following condition:

Contents of box: You agree not to store any cash or coins other than those found to have a collectible value.”

Interesting. After all, cash and precious metals are traditional primary stores of wealth. Why single them out as no longer being acceptable?

As readers of this publication will know, the banking world, increasingly, is pushing people to put their wealth into cash, and their cash into banks in the form of deposits. In this effort, they’re being assisted by many of the world’s governments, which are rapidly increasing the level of legislation that controls what individuals are allowed to do with their own wealth.

Many people who see the writing on the wall are doing whatever they can to exit the banking system as much as possible, in spite of the fact that the banking system is essential to most types of economic transactions.

As I’ve stated previously in “Capital Punishment,” I believe that the existing form of paper-and-coin currency will be eliminated and replaced by an electronic one, which will be wholly controlled by the banks. (Direct transactions between private parties will end.)

After this is completed, confiscations will occur. Again, these will be implemented by the banks. But in order to maximise the amount that will be taken, it will be necessary to force people out of other forms of wealth storage and into bank deposits.

Looked at in this light, the otherwise seemingly arbitrary restriction on cash and precious metals in safe deposit boxes makes complete sense. Should a bank perform a confiscation on accounts, whatever was in the safe deposit boxes would remain safe.

And even in a confiscation, banks would be reluctant to raid safe deposit boxes, as they would a) have to force them open, and b) have to deal in some way with the non-monetary contents of the boxes, such as documentation and fine art. To do so would glaringly expose the banks as plunderers (assuming the theft of deposits had not already achieved that end).

Cashing In

And so, it makes perfect sense to give box holders the nudge to remove their cash and precious metals. Since the holders would understandably prefer not to take the cash home and stuff it in their mattresses, they would be encouraged to deposit it, where it would be exposed to confiscation.

And the precious metals? Also not a good item to have lying around the house. Bank clients might come to the conclusion that it was time to cash in the “barbarous relic” and deposit the proceeds.

In the future, we can expect to see more and more steps taken by banks and governments to squeeze people out of all other forms of wealth storage to as great a degree as they can manage, and to squeeze them into deposits in banks as theonly workable choice. When this has been perceived by them to have been achieved to the optimum degree, it will be time to spring the confiscation trap.

The EU, US, Canada, and several other jurisdictions have, one after another since 2010, passed bail-in legislation, allowing banks carte blanche in deciding when and how much they wish to confiscate. In my belief, confiscation will take place worldwide and without warning. One Monday morning, depositors will wake up to the realisation that, over the weekend, confiscation had taken place and their deposits had been raided.

Again, this is already legal in many countries.

A “Reasonable” Confiscation

The EU has declared that a “reasonable” confiscation might be all deposit amounts over €100,000, but there can be no certainty that they will ultimately limit their confiscation to that amount. Further, the IMF has recently run anotherconfiscatory idea up the flagpole—an across-the-board percentage-based confiscation on all deposits. At this point, there can be no certainty as to how many different confiscations will occur, let alone what the total rape of deposits will be.

Banks are now a time bomb for depositors. Wealth storage in safe deposit boxes looks to become a thing of the past.

What to Do?

So, what to do? At this point, it would be wise to retain only three months expense-money in any bank, and even that amount should be regarded as sacrificial.

Beyond that, those who hope to protect their wealth from confiscation are becoming increasingly limited as to what forms of wealth storage are available to them. Considering the fragility of the bond and stock markets and the concurrent fragility of hedge funds and retirement funds, the most viable choices are precious metals, land, and built property. And these are truly safe only if they are located in jurisdictions that have no confiscatory laws.

Ideally, the investor would be best protected by selecting several such jurisdictions and spreading his wealth amongst them. If this isn’t possible, he would be best protected by selecting the most advantageous single jurisdiction that protects him in as many ways as possible.

On the surface, this would seem to be a monumental task. However, there are, for example, only three countries in the Western Hemisphere that have no property tax of any kind. (Even a small property tax allows a government to claim that the tax has not been paid, so the property may be taken.)

In addition, many countries in the Western Hemisphere operate under the Civil Law system, which allows squatters to take possession of property, whilst English Common Law (UK and dependant territories) provides certainty of ownership, regardless of the citizenship or residency of the titleholder.

The above protection is essential if the investor wants to ensure that if he buys a property in another jurisdiction, he can depart from his property, yet retain full ownership, with no obligations of any kind to any government.

With regard to precious metals, the number of private non-bank wealth-storage facilities is on the increase worldwide, in reaction to the increasing demand for alternatives to bank storage. Any top-rated facility, with a Class III vault can potentially fill the bill, but again, the key is to select one that’s located in a jurisdiction where there’s a history of stable, non-intrusive government, where no confiscatory laws exist, and where there’s no taxation or regulation of any kind on either the purchase, ownership, transportation, or storage of precious metals, or the profit generated by a sale.

(Editor’s Note: We discuss in great, actionable detail our favorite non-bankstorage facilities and the safe jurisdictions they are located in, in our Going Global publication.)

The elimination of safe deposit box storage of cash and precious metals is a further bellwether that the noose is tightening on the ability to store wealth. However, precious metals are the one form of money that is not also the liability of any government and is therefore difficult for governments to control, let alone demand its repatriation. Likewise, a portfolio of land and built property in a non-intrusive, no-tax jurisdiction cannot be confiscated by foreign governments, except as an act of war.

As such, these two safe havens of wealth will continue, as they have for over 5,000 years, in spite of the efforts of rapacious governments.

Of one thing we can be certain: there will be no warning of impending confiscation. There will be no signs on banks advertising, “Last chance to get your money out—offer ends today!” Those who escape the loss of wealth will be those who have removed it in advance of any confiscation and converted it into a safer form, in a safer jurisdiction.

Editor’s Note: One expert on foreign real estate whom we’d highly recommend is none other than Doug Casey, the original International Man. Doug’s been to over 175 countries and invested in real estate in a number them. He wrote a thick and detailed chapter on foreign real estate, including his favorite markets, for our Going Global publication. It’s a must-read for those interested in this extremely important topic.

Have u filed form BE-10 yet? The Commerce Department will throw you in jail for not filling out this survey!

Chances are that you’ve never heard of the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act that was originally passed nearly 40 years ago.

And chances are you didn’t catch the November 20, 2014 edition of the ‘Federal Register’, the US government’s daily opus of new rules and regulations that ran 331 pages that day.

So, chances are, you have no idea that the Department of Commerce might just want to throw you in jail right now. I’ll explain.

Back in 1976, Congress decided that they needed more information on US companies’ international trade activities.

So they passed a law requiring the Department of Commerce to survey the biggest businesses in America to find out more about what they were doing abroad.

These days, the survey is conducted every five years. And like most surveys it’s a bunch of useless bureaucratic drivel that only wastes the time of the poor souls who have to fill it out.

Now it’s something that can get you thrown in jail.

Late last year the Commerce Department quietly published a new ‘rule’ in the Federal Register requiring every American with certain investments abroad to fill out their survey, regardless of whether or not they were notified.

In other words, you’re just supposed to know that you have to fill out this form.

And if you don’t, the penalties are severe.

For the first time ever the government is imposing both civil and CRIMINAL penalties for non-compliance.

The fine for not filling out the survey (known as BE-10) ranges from $2,500 all the way to $25,000.

And if they think you intentionally didn’t file, you “may be imprisoned for not more than one year.”

Either way, even if you had no earthly idea and had never heard of this survey, they reserve the right to seek “injunctive relief commanding such person to comply.”

So if you don’t fill out the form, they’ll get a judge to order you to comply.

This really borders on insanity.

The federal government of the United States of America… the Land of the Free… is willing to clog up the court system to either force people to fill out a survey, or to prosecute them for not doing so.

Forget about rapists, murderers, and thieves. The government’s priority is to imprison people who don’t fill out surveys.

What’s really amazing is that your elected representatives in Congress weren’t the ones to enact these absurd criminal penalties.

The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) did this all on its own. They simply created a new ‘rule’, then buried it under hundreds of pages of other regulations.

And even though Congress never even sees them, and no reasonable person has ever heard of them, these rules have the same weight and effect as the law.

So much for representative democracy.

Two important questions come to mind:

1) How many other rules that carry criminal penalties might we be breaking at this very moment without even realizing it?

2) Just who the hell do these people think they are?

Regardless of whether or not the penalties are ever exacted is irrelevant.

It’s disgusting to even be threatened with such atrocity, simply because some bureaucratic functionary needs to justify his/her position.

It’s a clear sign that in today’s system, the government doesn’t exist to serve the people. They think the people exist to support the government.

Abraham Lincoln once told a war-torn nation that a government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth.

Tragically, Lincoln was totally wrong. Because this is what freedom has become in America.

Have you reached your breaking point yet?


I’ll publish more about form BE-10 soon. The quick and dirty is this: you need to file if you are a US individual or company that owned at least 10% of a foreign business at any time during your 2014 fiscal year (January 1 – December 31 for most folks.)

If you’re an individual, the reporting requirements are very simple– just a few boxes to check. It might take you five minutes… which makes being threatened with criminal penalties even more ridiculous.

The deadline to submit for first-time filers is June 30, 2015, and you can submit via mail, fax, or online. Read more about it here:

Premium members: I’ll have some detailed information for you very soon that will make this incredibly easy. Stay tuned for more.

Nothing But Blatter: FIFA President Issues Mocking Rebuke To Those Calling For Reform and Prosecution to End Corruption

On the surface, a case of sour grapes. Digging deeper, actions from the US Justice Dept:
“The USA definitely (has) nothing to do with this,” the Russian President said of FIFA, which is based in Switzerland. “This is yet another obvious attempt to spread their jurisdiction to other (countries).”


Flag_of_FIFA.svgSepp_Blatter_Nov_2013_ZurichAs we discussed earlier, FIFA has responded to the arrests of soccer officials in its latest corruption scandal with open contempt for the public and prosecutors. Sepp Blatter, 79, was reelected as FIFA’s president for a fifth term by the world governing body’s 209 member associations. FIFA officials were still be processed as arrestees in the corruption investigation in the United States, but Blatter was reelected by a group that seems little more than made men in an international criminal organization. Now, Blatter has gone public with a mocking public rebuke of everyone who has tried to reform his organization and fight corruption.

Goodbye Section 215: Patriot Act key surveillance provisions expire

Edited time: June 01, 2015 04:48

Controversial provisions of the Patriot Act authorizing government surveillance programs have expired after the Senate failed to vote for an extension. The Senate will reconvene to consider the USA Freedom Act on Monday afternoon.

Lawmakers have debated the possibility of extending the authority of Section 215, that authorizes bulk data collection, and other provisions in the extraordinary Sunday afternoon session. The debate started at 4:00 pm local time, eight hours before the expiration deadline.

The National Security Agency used Section 215 of the Patriot Act as the basis for collecting phone records of Americans who were not necessarily under official investigation. It was also used to track financial data and to obtain companies’ internet business records. The extent of the mass surveillance program was revealed nearly two years ago by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Two other sections that were not extended included the “lone wolf” provision that allowed targeted surveillance of people suspected to be terrorists, but not part of any group. The “roving wiretap” provision allowed the monitoring of a specific person, irrespective of the devices used.

Letting the provisions “sunset” is regarded as victory by those who were against government surveillance programs. Supporters of the Patriot Act, however, said that the programs were of vital importance to US national security.


Senate Democrats, including Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) called the conundrum a “manufactured crisis” and urged the chamber to pass the House-approved USA Freedom Act.

Republican Senators Dan Coats (R-Indiana) and John McCain (R-Arizona) rejected “rubber-stamping” the House act, however, advocating an outright extension of the existing provisions. Coats argued that the public was “misinformed” about the surveillance, that there had never been any abuses if it, and that losing it would be unimaginable at the time when America’s enemies were more dangerous than ever, and wish to “kill us all.

Coats claimed the terrorists were just waiting for a nuclear 9/11, while McCain argued the surveillance had to stay because the “Middle East is literally on fire and we’re losing everywhere.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) asked for five minutes to speak, and overcame McCain’s objections to do so.

We’re not collecting the information of spies. We’re not collecting the information of terrorists. We’re collecting the information of Americans, all of the time,” Paul argued, reminding the Senators that Section 215 was ruled illegal by a federal court, and therefore extending it would be wrong.

Paul blocked an effort by Majority Leader McConnell to vote on extending the two provisions of the Patriot Act unrelated to Section 215, the “lone wolf” surveillance and the “roving wiretaps.” That left McConnell with having to call for a cloture vote on passing the House’s USA Freedom Act.

That vote succeeded, with 77 for and only 17 against. What followed was a re-run of Paul’s May 20 filibuster, with the Kentucky senator speaking till almost 8 pm, then ceding the floor to two like-minded Democrats, Ron Wyden of Oregon and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico.

Some people are secretly hoping for an attack, so they could blame it on me,” Paul said, adding that he nonetheless believed one could oppose terrorism without violating the Constitution.

Wyden and Heinrich spoke until after 8:00pm, past the time the NSA said it would be possible to continue the surveillance without interruption if the Senate re-authorized it. At that point, the temporary shutdown of the surveillance became irreversible, at least until a new law is passed.

Senator Dean Heller (R-Nevada) told reporters that Edward Snowden’s revelations absolutely played a role in the debate.

I think it played the same role for me as it did for most of the American people, who were surprised and stunned that the government had this sort of access to this kind of data,” Heller said.

The Senate adjourned at 9:45pm local time Sunday, and would reconvene on Monday afternoon to consider the USA Freedom Act. Until then, the NSA’s metadata collection will be on hold.
