U.S. Citizens Finding New Ways to Protect Their Wealth from Criminal U.S. Government

crime_scene

I believe God is going to transfer great wealth into the accounts of a remnant of His people who will function as modern day Joseph’s to help finance the great end-time harvest. Anyone assigned for that role will not only need to know how to transfer the wealth, but how to protect it. Recent actions by the United States government have been making that task more difficult.

Our world is changing rapidly. Institutions that were once considered safe are now proving to be criminal organizations, including the United States federal government and the western banking system, which now controls the U.S. government. They have become the number one threat to American citizens and to the rest of the world.

In recent years, the U.S. government has taken actions to exploit the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency by threatening to shut foreign financial institutions out of the U.S. banking system, which would make it almost impossible for them to get access to dollars and therefore almost impossible to conduct International trade. Since International trade is conducted in dollars, foreign nations must hold dollars on reserve to conduct trade.

One way the U.S. government has been bullying foreign banks is through the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FACTA) of 2010. Without any legal authority, the U.S. government has been demanding foreign banks to report their account holder’s transactions to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a way of finding and collecting more tax revenues from American citizens. Institutions who refuse to comply are being slapped with outrageous fines and threats.

In addition, the U.S. government has extorted billions of dollars from foreign banks by fining them for a variety of other violations, including mandates telling them which countries they can trade with. As a result, foreign banks and foreign nations are now seeking alternatives to the tyranny of the dollar-based financial system.

Meanwhile, American citizens are finding it harder to open new accounts outside of the United States because many foreign banks have stopped accepting new accounts from American citizens. It is just too much trouble for them. The net result is making it harder for U.S. citizens to protect their wealth from theft by the U.S. government.

However, the good news is the rest of the world is now starting to fight back. In his August 1 Sovereign Man newsletter, Simon Black identified one nation taking a stand against the U.S. government.

“But finally there’s at least one jurisdiction that’s said, ‘Enough is enough.’

No surprise, it’s Hong Kong, one of the more economically free places in the world.

Hong Kong already has one of the safest, most liquid and well-capitalized banking systems on the planet.

(My analysts recently performed an independent stress test for our premium members that showed Hong Kong banks easily withstanding catastrophic financial conditions…)

Hong Kong’s Monetary Authority has decided that it will no longer live in fear of Uncle Sam and is now leading a rebellion against US government financial servitude.

They’ve just announced new guidelines to make Hong Kong, once again, one of the easiest and best places in the world to bank.

And those guidelines will specifically include simplified account opening procedures for foreigners, foreign businesses, and even startups.”

Another financial advisor is sounding a similar alarm. Jim Willie, founder of The Golden Jackass, was interviewed by Rick Wiles on the July 26 broadcast of Trunews.

At the 1:10-minute mark, Rick Wiles asked Jim the following question, “For people who have their gold stashed away, what assurance do people have that their gold is safe?”

The following is Jim Willie’s reply:

“I think they have the assurance of the legitimacy of those nations like Singapore and Hong Kong. You have no assurances whatsoever in London and Zurich, Switzerland. Those are crime centers. They have years and decades of criminal activity, very well documented and understood, yet some people still think they are safe places. They are not.

You actually have some safety in Panama. They have a European style gold vault, not just gold, but a vault system. They call it a stage three depository.

I think a lot of countries are legitimate. It is the ones that speak English and the Swiss that are uniformly criminal.

I don’t include the Australians as being honest with their banking vaults. No, they are doing bail-ins and selling out to China and Chinese buyers of property are coming in, in droves. They are taking over Auckland New Zealand. They are taking over city after city in Australia. It’s ridiculous.

The owners (of precious metals) who have Asian vaults, I think are going to be very safe.

He added this comment at the 1:13-minute mark, “The United States government with their I.O.U. gold certificates, they are all criminal. They are worthless.”

At the 1:14:40-minute mark he added, “I don’t think people are going to have a lot to worry about if they have a Singapore or a Hong Kong vault, but the ones who are dumb enough to put it in their back yard and show their friends, some of them, they are going to get robbed.”

Jim Willie’s comments about Singapore are supported by Bobby Conner, founder of Eagles View Ministries. Appearing as a guest on Rick Joyner’s Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events program, he said God told him the financial center of the world will one day move from New York City to Singapore. He said the reason was Singapore has been good stewards of the wealth entrusted to them while New York City has not.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a link to that program, but I watched it myself several years ago. Bobby Conner confirmed it with the following comment in his 2012 Shepherd’s Rod newsletter, “Singapore could become the world’s money market center.”

Conclusion:

Based on the recent trends, I am expecting to see the U.S. government putting increased pressure on foreign financial institutions until the dollar-based system finally implodes. When that happens, we could see draconian measures making it even harder for American citizens to transfer wealth outside of the United States. The criminals running the U.S. government are planning to close the doors so they can plunder the wealth. For anyone seeking to protect their assets, Hong Kong and Singapore appear to be two of the best countries to consider.

Oy…agreed as long as the status quo is maintained (which we wall know it won’t) those are true points for now. But when considering remote private vaults for precious metals you need a much longer and biblical view, a view past the status quo of today and I don’t just mean collapsing world markets. Falling world markets is just the beginning, the best case scenario as odd as that sounds. It is all downhill from there. Singapore I like, and have been there before. A little slice of american style entitlement and american style opulence snuggled into the far east surrounded by Islamic nations (wah wah wahhh). Singapore is smaller than Rhode Island (seriously let that sink in) and doesn’t even begin to have natural resources to support its large population of whitecollar people. If that is where any precious metals are stored…it would be trivial, and I mean utterly trivial, for almost any large country to just take it over. Even Islamic Indonesia could just invade and they aren’t even a “large” country. Invade, occupy. It might take a day or two at max. Singapore has no serious natural resources…they even have to import their own fresh water. If another country was feeling generous, like Malaysia for instance which they have long standing disputes with, they could just tell Singapore…”Hmm you want fresh water? How about we do a Gold for Water exchange?” How will things change when Singaporeans are eating each other to stay alive? How stable will they be then? If you don’t see red flags you aren’t paying attention. Even without invasion, just siege tactics would have that country eating itself alive literally. Now lets consider you are not going to emigrate there prior to WW3, but just stash your precious metals there. You won’t to… Read more »

I am from Singapore. So let me elaborate our present politicial situation. Our water situation with Malaysia has changed since many years ago. Whilst we still import water from Johore, South of Peninsular Malaysia due to separation agreement from Singapore since 1965, we are equally tired of being threatened by them to cut water supply when disputes crop up. To solve this threat, we have built many reservoirs all over the island , the latest being in the South of Singapore, Marina Bay which has been created out at the mouth of Singapore River. In addition , we have created technology for desalinated water for seawater around our island is plentiful and abundant. Lastly, Singapore has created technology to convert drain and storm drain water into drinkable water , ” Newater “. This technology has been exported to many neighbouring countries to help solve their water shortage. Every year, we will allocate high percentage of our Budget for national defence…our young men have to serve Compulsory National Service in the Army for 2 years and thousands of reservists ready to defend ourselves from the Islamic countries around us while maintaining friendly close relations with them. Hence the scenario of having to exchange our gold reserve with water is a far fetched idea or having our economy in danger because of this lack. This cannot happen here anymore. China is far far away from us. Any nuclear war in the Far East like the Koreas will not affect us. On the dispute of ownership of tiny islands in the South China Sea with China , Singapore is actually one of the few countries in ASEAN ( the other being Thailand and Mynarmar) who are not contesting for ownership. So on the contrary , Singapore is actually quite safe in this region… Read more »

I do like Singapore in today’s world. It is a very nice place to live…the concerns are more about tomorrows world when the status quo no longer applies. According to wikipedia, Singapore is still importing almost 70% of its demand for freshwater on a daily basis. Apparently the target for Singapore is to be “water independent” by 2061. If the status quo is not maintained and that imported water goes away or his held ransom, it would be pretty rough on the inhabitants to try to get by on 30% of whats left with rain catchment and desalination. If electricity is out in Singapore, desalination goes away also leaving only 10% of the demand available. That is just water. Food is the other even bigger problem. With out homegrown food resources, it doesn’t seem very promising or safe in a ww3 scenario/post-status quo world. Gold for water/food doesn’t seem so far fetched if the people are starving and dying of thirst and all the country has to offer are the contents of the private metals vaults. Of course none of that matters during a Nibiru/Wormwood/Sixth Seal event, Singapore will be submerged in the ocean due its proximity to sea level Singapore is about 900 miles from China mainland as the crow flies. That may seem far, far away, but it’s not really that far for air bursted nukes or EMPs. That is about the same distance from Seattle, WA to San Francisco, CA. We know that a single air-bursted nuke could disable the entire continental united states…which is about 3.5x that distance in width. Of course it depends on the size/type of the nuke detonated and if there are multiple nukes detonated on China/Hong Kong. If the coast of China is hit, which makes sense because of the large cities… Read more »

Yes, mem, the odds against Singapore are many, as you rightly pointed out. They had existed for as long as Singapore was a nation and even before that. Singapore was a British colony since the 19th century. In 1965,Singapore was separated from Malaysia thru political unrest and many painful events including racial events and we then departed unwillingly from Malaysia to become one of the smallest young nation in the world at that time. We had no natural resources and no water, as you have mentioned, our water had to be imported as part of the Separation Agreement. As a nation, we struggled and fought on but yet survived. From a small unknown poor country, we have built our nation from a third world nation to a First world nation in just ONE generation. As a Christian, I believe that God had allowed this separation for a purpose. We are called as a nation to be an Antioch in Asia, not only as a nation that bring the Gospel of Jesus to the neighboring countries, but also to be a nation that help them in their economic and other needs. Many nations around us in Asia have strong major world religions except for Christianity. Other than South Korea with 30% Christian, Philippines being Catholic but mixed with paganism, Singapore has about 15% of the population being Christian. Hence as an Antioch, we can bring the Gospel to many, in the millions of the salvation plan of our Lord. Not forgetting that we would have been a Muslim nation if not for the Separation, we are now become a secular nation that all major religions are treated equally and 4 languages being our official languages. Hence we have the freedom to worship God and preach the Gospel easily and we can… Read more »

Good points mem. Metals (actual ones you hold in your hand) are the only thing the Fed can’t control and monitor – it drives them nuts. Look for a 1933 type confiscation of gold/silver where it was a fed crime to hold gold/silver with a 10 year prison sentence possible (only about a third of the population complied). Thus your control/storage is all important.

Hi Mem, I’m interested about the rabbit hole in New Zealand! I live here and hear very little about what’s going on or coming. So far I have only found A Minute To Midnite but don’t have much time for reading their stuff by the time I’ve got through Z3 news! I know we will come under judgement because we were way ahead if you at legalising homosexual marriage, prostitution, abortion etc. Doesn’t feel like hardly anyone is awake here!
Do you have any news sources you could refer me to? I was just wanting to pick everyone up and bring them all here!!!

Hi Lynne – Yes, I really like Minute to Midnite too!. My family always checks the site for updates and listens to Tony, Matt, Joanie, and Brook regularly. We really like Joanie Stahl and it seems now that is the only place she is using as a platform to speak what God gives her. I also really like New Zealand in some ways! We actually get our supplements from a place called Xtend-Life in Christschurch. The best supplements that can be bought, just amazing stuff. You bring up some great points that people sometimes forget to consider when considering where to emigrate. When we left gay marriage had just passed at the federal level. I remember being so shocked hearing that…I thought for sure that they would *at least* leave it up to each state. But no, they had to go full tilt wicked. We sought Steve Quayle’s advice for where to go, because NZ was on the top of my list (if nothing else because it was english speaking). He was the first one to warn against the Antipodes, because of China’s interest in annexing AU/NZ during WW3. I also then read that AU was doing their own version of Jade Helm. NZ has pretty tough immigration requirements. You need to just about be a millionaire to get in unless you can get a work contract there. For me, I could probably get a work contract there, because I am in high-end IT, but then there is the very high cost of living and land and labor. Those are pretty key, because we are trying to build a homestead. So we need to rent a place, while looking for a parcel of land to purchase and then build structures for a homestead. Where we are now the land is… Read more »

We live a couple of hours south of Taupo so I guesd it will affect us. Hadn’t realised quite how overdue we were! Will have to make more of a point to stay in touch with M2M!
Your points on finding a country with no abortion or gay marriage is so basic and yet it has blown my mind! How did I ever Not think of that! I don’t feel called to move but that’s now my key point to anyone in the end days!
Ahh yes…I suspect we will get taken over by the Chinese, would be so easy for them to do, stupid not to :/
I shall dust off my interlinier bible and look up “bloods”…that’s quite a big deal too!

Hello z3 family, I’m not educated on this topic but I’m confused. If we put our financial assets overseas while we are here In The USA and something happens like natural disaster, tyranny from our government, or attack that would stop our normal ways of life, how would we be able to access our finances? If the internet, phone, banking systems etc. weren’t functioning as they do now how could we expect to get to what we needed? Thanks for any feedback. God bless.

Z3 I think this is going to be a live issue. What we need from the Lord, however, are some blueprints. I don’t have a good enough handle on how the future unfolds to have confidence that the “modern” capabilities of our world will be working. Much of the strategies that rest on distant banking and vault strategies assume a world of internet communication, physical mobility, personal freedom of action, stable legal authority, and a host of details that seem uncertain to me. Indeed, I fully expect that what I do now won’t be workable at some future date because the electronic infrastructure for trading may not be available. So, there’s a spectrum of possible responses, from localized devolved economies, to variations of what we have now. It’s probably graduated over time. I think the Joseph’s need to continue asking the Lord for counsel on how this plays out. This is where the prophetic needs to be accurate. When it comes down to action, we need prophetic insights that have a degree of immutability. Joseph had that, which is why he was able to act. The timeline didn’t shift around on him because the act of storing food for seven years was not soft action. It required commitment and follow-through inside a given time interval. If I lived in Jerusalem in AD 70, I need to know to get out of town, and do it now. The Lord told me Jeremiah 5 is what I’m supposed to teach. Jeremiah’s ministry, while not popular, was the word of the Lord for the people at that time. An invasion was coming. We will need that type of insight. I don’t have those blueprints yet, but I’m keeping my strategic options open at this time while I wait upon the Lord’s instructions. Thoughts… Read more »

JR, I agree, it’s a huge issue.

For those called to stay, sometimes I wish there was better prophetic guidance on safe zones. All we have to go on now are a bunch of 30-year old maps scribbled in crayon. Really?

Beyond the will-we-fry or wont-we debates, there is just as much prophetic uncertainty on where one might go, assuming “fry” wins out. Lots of people talking about the Ozarks, not much revelation on safe areas inland off the west coast. Spokane? Boise? Reno (too close?). One person sees a 50,000 ft. high mushroom cloud over Spokane, another sees an orange (EMP?) explosion over the city, others say “safe zone”. Are these cities inside the “blue crayon” areas or not? It’s enough to drive you mad.

Just like stock trading we need prophetic convergence here, combined with personal guidance. Just because brother so-and-so says XYZ is a safe place doesn’t make it so…. we don’t want a “margin call” when it comes to that……

JR…just a few thoughts on what you said…BLUEPRINTS. ..For those interested, Sadhu Sundar Salveraj speaks about waiting on God…being in fellowship with him and how God will give you blueprints for your life,ministry,etc.He was given blueprints by an angel on how to build his t.v ministry complete with how the building should be and look,etc…I Okay Neville Johnson said that the Lord told him Noone would be able to buy or sell in 7 years..I believe that he said that last year..He did a video on the Joseph ministry. HE speaks of 7 good years to prepare….My thoughts have been to take the transfer of wealth and get set up ASAP..Homestead as someone has mentioned.Get everything that you need As the Lord leads in place…Food storage,shelters,etc.My goal is a place of refuge…for the people God sends..orphans widows and whomever. ..A homeless shelter..A community of believers. ..So when we get the wealth we will have a blueprint to know exactly what we need to purchase..AND where.Do all quickly as possible because of the window of time….of course everything will be changing as time marches on and we will be led by his Spirit, until???So my time is seeking the Lord now for that blueprint. SADHU says we are lazy,why we don’t have the relationship with God intimately. I agree…..Anyways for those interested in this LOOK UP. SADHU SUNDAR SALVERAJ on you tube .Lancaster,ca.conference 2015..ALSO NEVILLE JOHNSON HAS a transfer of wealth..Joseph teaching on youtube….Anyways,I appreciate your input and everyone else on here..ALSO, THANKYOU JAMES for this post…

Hi Jim,
Good response regarding blueprints necessary to help us navigate through what is coming. I actually have a Joseph anointing and have been given a strategy or blueprint for the economic transition. The blueprint is specific for the body of Christ so that we are ready to be Gods hands and feet. Things are still in in the early stages, however, I strongly believe that what the Lord has given me is going to be instrumental and helping the body of Christ go through what is coming as what he is giving me is an interim strategy…..helping us move from one economic system to another. He is also giving me a strategy that may protect gold and silver in this country from the federal government so that we don’t have to move it out of the country. I have developed a market place ministry called The Cover Club located at http://www.thecoverclub.net. The website has ore specific information if you are interested in knowing more.

I’m just thinking with all the chaos and possible avenues for God to take wouldn’t it be best to hold gold/silver physically and not thousands of miles overseas. Gold and silver is God’s money – never anything else. Bitcoin and any electronic money could be lost to an EMP or large enough CME. Paper would most likely be like Weimar and Zimbabwe. With gold at $1360 today thats a 12 % increase in just 2 months. Ha — burying it in the backyard may be the safest thing to do after all.

If things get as bad as described here then 20-30 year survival food would also make a good investment. (Ezekiel 7:19 They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath. It will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs, for it has caused them to stumble into sin). This would the become ‘money’ and could be used to barter for almost anything.

Being a little “intellectually lazy” or misleading here with the gold/silver biblical reference without mentioning the timing? Consider the time and context.

Hello all;
Thanks for the good info James. I haven’t trusted the banks for many years and even less now. There are also a couple of aspects of the ‘Joseph ministry’ that occur to me but seem to be passed over by most.

1. The goods Joseph distributed to the people were mainly (though certainly not exclusively) foodstuffs and not financial. Should we not expect a similarity in the end-time Joseph ministry? I think we should be careful not to put God in a box, so to speak, in what shape that provision will take on. A Joseph may be given control over a large farm or food producing concern (or some other supply()versus a large wad of cash or a quantity of precious metals..

2. The goods Joseph distributed were not his own, but the property of the ruler of that nation. This obviously could be a type / shadow of the Father, but could just as easily be seen as speaking of a governmental authority in possession of food or necessities (confiscated maybe?). Stranger things have happened (Nebuchadnezzar’s general, after destroying Jerusalem, gave the prophet Jeremiah provision and protection, and also the liberty to travel where and when he chose). All things are possible with God.

Just some food for thought;
Paul
P.S. The story of Jeremiah and the general is one of my favorites in the Word. If anyone is interested, I did a write-up on it here:

The original Egyptians were Caucasians. They looked down on the nomadic Semites from the Middle East as inferior and called them “Sand People”. The Semites however invaded and ruled over Egypt for nearly two generations during the approximate time that Joseph was in Egypt. That explains why Joseph could be appointed as a ruler – he was one of them and spoke their language. That is why his family could immigrate to Egypt and receive choice land.

Joseph had a monopoly with wheat, which meant he could determine the prize (that does not mean he was unfair). Joseph sold the wheat for money, then animals and finally land (Genesis 47: 13 – 26) and helped the Semite rulers take control over all land and wealth. People in the USA who now stock food, water, medication, bullets, etc might also have a small monopoly in a year or two.

Joseph made all the local Egyptians slaves (Genesis 47: 21), except the priests – who received their food from the Pharaoh. The priests were the power behind the throne and always had received their food from the Pharaoh. During the time of Moses and the exodus, the priesthood was 60,000 strong, while the army was about 20,000. Therefore the new Semite rulers had to treat them favorably.

Eventually the Semite rule was overthrown (Exodus 1: 8) and, unsurprisingly, the people of Israel were made slaves.

That does not change the fact that Joseph walked with God diligently, trusted Him as a child, a slave, a prisoner and as a ruler. God allowed him to live in the best period of time: in the super-power of the era who was ruled by his own people, as the de facto ruler of the super-power.

Egyptians were Caucasians? I thought they were Arabic/middle eastern, since they have lived in the area of Arabia versus the Caucasus mountains up in Europe?

Mem, you are right. Theory of ancient Egyptians being caucasians was an academic theory popular in 19th century and up through mid 20th century. More recent academic studies including DNA and cranial analysis have shown their genealogy more linked to sub saharan Africa. What tends to throw people off is that Egypt has been occupied by various dynasties (including roman and greek) over long periods of time and people tend not be specific about which particular period of “Egyptians” they are referring to.

“Then the LORD is leading people astray ???”

Does it seem that’s what I’m implying? In this comment, I wasn’t suggesting that the Lord was leading people.

As far as whether something is a mistake or not, some value liberty above physical death.

Hi Z3ers, yes, this is a very interesting write-up and honestly, living in Austria I feel for you all in the USA. It’s gotten very difficult for American’s to diversify and protect. I’ve read something like 17,500 American’s have given up their nationality since Obama came into office. Nevertheless, there are options that are in the Fintech area which don’t necessarily need a bank account. Interesting Fintech Companies are the likes of:
http://www.bitwage.com: This provides a chance to receive income, earnings etc outside of the normal banking system. You can actually get a linked US or EU bank account number.
http://www.uphold.com: Interesting option also which is powering Bitwage as a place to store your money.
http://www.goldmoney.com: This is the newly changed Bitgold and ultimately, in a way to hold money in Gold form is an awesome alternative. I have an account myself and use it to hold my savings that I want digital access to.
http://www.xapo.com: Very interesting Bitcoin alternative. Based out of interestingly Hong Kong, but with their vaults in Zug, Switzerland it’s an amazing option to have and spend Bitcoin as you get a Mastercard/Debit card to spend anywhere around the world.

There are so many awesome Fintech Startups that though are mostly fed off of the digital, never the less it gives alternatives. Just do a search and you start to see God is inspiring a generation of “Decentralization”.

Bitcoin got hacked just 3 days ago for $72 million. 20% drop. TPTB can shut down anything digital anytime they want to do it. All digital will be worse than all fiat.
