The War on Cash is the latest Tet Offensive on your personal privacy

Mayer Amschel Rothschild is famous for saying: “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
Rothschild was the patriarch of the family’s banking dynasty, one that began in the late 1700s and still prospers today. This man’s children went on to influence central banks in Germany, England, France, Italy and others in Europe. Today, it is speculated that the family’s total wealth runs in the trillions and the family’s tentacles extend all over the world.
It’s not a coincidence that the singular concept of private central banking is the dominant mindset around the globe. Despite a history of national currencies replete with utter failures, governments nonetheless continue to operate with a blind eye in favor of central banking. Through its machinations, including inflation, this monetary model is responsible for stealing the hard-earned income of generations of people.
As the world continues to change, this political machine maneuvers with deft yet subtle responses to the times. The meteoric rise of the United States as a world power in the 19th Century is a direct consequence of a financial model lacking central banking.
The 1800s was a period that saw the U.S. largely fend off aggressive attempts to create central banks. President Andrew Jackson was a vehement opponent of the idea of central banking; is it a coincidence that he faced at least two attempts at assassination? During the period of 1890-1920, the U.S. Government abandoned the policies of the founding Republic and began a new global military adventurism under President McKinley with the Spanish-American War, the 16th Amendment under President Taft, and then the Espionage Act under President Woodrow Wilson before and during WWI. All were used to subdue the American people and suppress dissent. The U.S. Constitution has been severely tested during periods such as these, and the attacks still are ongoing today.
This military global expansion required a new taxation scheme beyond the restrictions promulgated in the U.S. Constitution which severely limited the power of the National Government. During this period, one sees the establishment of a central bank and the passage of the 16th Amendment that most Americans today still think that the Federal Income Tax was imposed upon them.
Adele Weiss, founder of Weiss+Associates, a European-based consultancy firm specializing in the Federal Income Tax, discovered the politicians’ game behind the way they got the 16th Amendment (creating the Federal Income Tax) passed through the Supreme Court.
“President Taft pushed for an income tax upon the National Government itself, the statutory ‘United States,’ ” he explained. “There are two entities called the ‘United States,’ and they used this wordplay to create confusion. They continue to use this confusion to their advantage today.”
Taft saw that the National Government could tax itself, and those who live in non-states such as the District of Columbia and territories such as Puerto Rico and Guam. They also allow outsiders to join the U.S. Tax Club by choice, but to avoid violating the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery and involuntary indentured servitude, they had to include an option for those outsiders to exit the U.S. tax system.
The U.S. Supreme Court stated to then President William H. Taft in the Pollock v. Farmer’s Loan & Trust Company decision that there can be no direct taxation placed upon Americans without the Rule of Apportionment being adhered to and “would be an unconstitutional act.” Furthermore, a direct tax would be a one-time tax and not an annual tax.
Taft stated to the U.S. Congress in his letter published in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate that “...(the Federal Income Tax) was held by the Supreme Court to be a direct tax and therefore not within the power of the Federal Government to impose unless apportioned among the several states according to population.”
With the passage of the 16th Amendment, when one reads it, there is the clear avoidance to the required Rule of Apportionment based on population as mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court. This was only possible for the U.S. Congress to pass (ignoring the Rule of Apportionment requirement) if the tax was levied upon the National Government — the District of Columbia and, post Spanish-American War, the new U.S. Territories acquired from Spain which are not states of the Union but territories and people belonging to the National Government. This was the only jurisdiction to which the Federal Income Tax can be legally applicable toward.
Monied interests were relentless, and in 1913, the Federal Reserve Bank was created with the stated reason to provide stability to the financial markets. The book The Creature from Jekyll Island details all the clandestine meetings that took place to get the Federal Reserve Act passed, and the sales job it took after the fact to manufacture the public’s acceptance of it. There was a concerted effort to conceal this fascistic partnership between the private banking industry and government's power to enforce this ideology upon the people.
To go along with this destructive act, the Internal Revenue Service was also created in 1913 as yet another attempt to weaken wealth distribution.
“They tried very hard to get a progressive income tax passed, and finally, they were successful,” said Weiss. “These people were truly craftsmen, but their craft involved an unholy alliance between governments and banks.”
Today, the U.S. Dollar is worth about 3 cents of what it could purchase back in 1913. Its decline was greatly accelerated by President Nixon’s removal of a gold-backed monetary system that was the basis of the Bretton-Woods Agreement. Yet, as of this writing, the “greenback” is still the world’s reserve currency, stealing purchasing power from all who continue to use it. The Dollar is still used as the baseline for all the world’s petroleum trade in spite of the fact it is a fiat currency.
The United States has gone from the largest creditor nation in the world to the world’s largest debtor nation in the span of under 50 years.
Gold is the money of kings; silver is the money of gentlemen; barter is the money of peasants; but debt is the money of slaves.
Norm Franz in his book Money and Wealth in the New Millennium
As the end game approaches for the “almighty” Dollar, the U.S. government in particular is trying all methods to force people to remain in the insolvent banking system. In addition, it discourages alternate money and currencies like gold, silver and Bitcoin. In attempting this, the National Government has been stomping on the 4th Amendment guaranteeing privacy in the absence of explicit probable cause.
“Governments are doing everything they can to keep the games going,” added Weiss. “Which is why we must do everything we can to unplug from the matrix.”
Government tactics, together with support from the banking system, are promoting the end of cash, which is yet another means for sovereign people to act anonymously. Those tactics include messages used in the media to suggest anyone wanting anonymity must be criminals. This amounts to a slap in the face to the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Weiss’ Revocation of Election document provides qualified clients the legal “Exit Door” to end participation in the U.S. Tax Club. This “Exit Door” was the creation of the U.S. Congress and is published in the Internal Revenue Code. To date, his firm has helped over 2,000 clients remove themselves from the U.S. tax system and eliminate any further involvement in the destructive idea of a progressive income tax. Weiss says that banks today, via the Bank Secrecy Act, FISA, and FDIC, are essentially discreet arms of the National Government, and sovereign Americans born in the 50 states must use every lawful avenue they can to maintain any measure of privacy.
“The right to privacy is one of the basic tenets of a free society,” he opined. “In an increasingly digital world, personal data becomes especially targeted. Digital currency continues to be touted as a convenience, but its pitfalls far outweigh its pluses. Consider how the National Government is going after Apple to institute a backdoor to all iPhones. This is a huge threat to our personal privacy and sovereignty.”
