The Dark Road: The Worst Tax Law You've Never Heard About
08 April 2014
A little-known tax law threatens the privacy, and even lives, of millions of people and the stability of the U.S. economy while laying the foundation for a global tax regime.
Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act ( FATCA )
(Excerpt) Read more at thenewamerican.com ...
A long read, but a very informative and important read to other nefarious BS instituted by the Rats to destroy this country and bring the “taxpayers” under even tighter control.
A much more insidious Iron Curtain.
WOW! This government is out of control, drunk with power...
In all, it is estimated that U.S. banks have almost $4 trillion in liabilities to private foreign residents. Meanwhile, non-resident aliens foreigners who do not live in the United States have close to half a trillion dollars actually deposited in U.S. financial institutions, according to estimates cited in court documents that all sides appear to accept. Due to the controversial way the banking system is structured (fractional reserve lending), every dollar in deposits generates roughly $9 in lending.
If just 10 percent of those foreign deposits were to flee American banks and institutions due to the Obama administrations machinations the conservative end of the estimates the impact on the U.S. economy would be devastating. Based on surveys, some analysts and industry groups have suggested that as much as 20 percent of those deposits could be at risk of leaving the U.S. economy perhaps even more.
This is about trying to prevent a potential future financial crisis, Cecala from Rep. Poseys office continued in a phone interview with The New American. This is not about protecting tax evaders; its about preventing a future financial crisis. These regulations put at risk tens or hundreds of billions of dollars in deposits.... This is a very serious problem.
One of the most significant concerns is the potential for destabilization of the financial sector, Cecala said. As many as two or three dozen institutions in Florida could be exposed to liquidity issues, he explained, adding that other states could see similar problems. So that means the possibility of more bailouts.... What is the impact on the economy?
The capital flight would also have a direct impact on American businesses, families, and more as banks deal with the carnage. Were risking a run on deposits, and losing that money to other countries, Cecala continued. That money is used to make loans to American families and small businesses.
"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
- Ayn Rand, 1957 -
In sometimes wonder... in the case of a real confrontation, the Chinese wouldn’t have to shoot off a single round - they could simply withdraw every penny they have on deposit in American banks and put the cash elsewhere.
The economy would crash.
I really believe Ayn Rand and George Orwell were prophets. Thier detractors accused them of being delusional paranoids in their day.
They were indeed.
and this government isn’t interested with doing anything to the real criminals.
No money or power in it.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I read Atlas Shrugged, and it was no small feat! My 10 year old son loves the movies, but I haven’t yet put the book in his hands.
According to the legal website International Tax Blog, the number hovered around 500 a decade ago. Last year, it hit a record high of nearly 3,000.
This was not a gradual change. It was a sudden spike. It's a story of dominoes falling, one after another, leading to an unexpected outcome.
The first domino fell in 2008, when federal prosecutors accused the Swiss bank UBS of helping wealthy Americans hide their money tax-free in overseas accounts. It was a big case, leading to indictments, fines and prison time.

I doubt it would crash right away, the books would be cooked, mo bankers would die mysteriously and the balances would appear just fine on the outside...
Despotic governments have a number of approaches. A few years ago Castro allowed a plane load of refugees leave Cuba and flee to Costa Rica, and when they landed in San Jose they found out that just before the plane had taken off from Havana the Cuban government stole everyone's luggage for 'taxes'.
One of the only countries on the planet that forces its citizens to pay tax on ALL worldwide income. Brits working abroad either pay NO TAX AT ALL or local taxes only. Try competing with that for business on a world stage.
Don’t tell me the US is the greatest country on earth. It was once but not now.
No, not really. It would be easy for them to make a better offer to the citizens of this country.
