The number one threat to your life and your livelihood is not a natural disaster. It is your fellow man, which means anyone who is in a position to hurt you or your interests, directly or indirectly intentionally or not. Depending on circumstances and the way you generally tend to lead your life, it takes just one malevolent, stupid or merely ignorant person to turn your life upside down, cause you considerable grief – or wipe you out altogether.
These days, many malevolent, stupid or merely ignorant people are found in government. They can be the most dangerous. Some are misguided by socialist ideology. All of them have power. They make their own rules. More peoples’ lives have been wrecked by governments than by all other disasters put together. Today, the bureaucrat is deadly. Avoid whenever possible.
This Report will teach you how to insulate yourself. It will show you how to prevent disasters from happening. Dangers lurk everywhere. You will have to re-evaluate some ‘truths’ to adjust to the New World Order.
You have to travel from, say, New York to London or vice-versa. You cannot drive a car across the Atlantic and swimming is not a practical option either. In other words, you decide (by default, really) to fly over. So far, so good. In order to get on the plane you need to purchase an air ticket. With me so far? Now see if you can find the ‘hidden
danger’ in the preceding sequence of events. Give up? The answer is: the way in which you choose to pay for that airline ticket may, under the present circumstances, land you in considerable trouble if you do it the wrong way. You basically have three options: pay in cash, by check or by credit card. Each of these could create problems. If you pay by check or credit card a lasting record is created that will allow anyone with access to the proper files to determine that you went abroad and deduce some sinister purpose for your travels. For instance, that you went on an innocent holiday, on an innocent business trip or on a highly suspect visit to a country well known for its banking secrecy laws (in the event that the one doing the checking is employed by the IRS). In other words, you may have good reason to avoid leaving any evidence of the trip behind for posterity. The seeming solution would be to pay for the ticket in cash. Cash is fairly untraceable, right?
But that is exactly the catch: precisely because cash is just about the only way in which you may purchase anything without leaving a trace behind, it is generally assumed by authorities to be the monetary conduit of choice for criminals in general… drug dealers and elusive money launderers, in particular. In other words, making large purchases and paying cash may make you a potential suspect in the eyes of those engaged in the much touted “war on drugs”.
Sounds too far-fetched? This was exactly what happened to “Joe”. He bought a one-way, first class airline ticket from Honolulu, Hawaii to Miami, Florida. He paid the fare in cash. Not in counterfeit notes, mind you, but in good and (relatively) solid greenbacks, issued by the US Treasury. This aroused the suspicion of the airline ticketing clerk who duly informed her supervisor – who then, in his turn, informed the local police. On his arrival in Florida, Joe was picked out from the other passengers and his luggage was searched. It turned out to contain not only the standard items of clothing and toiletries but US $6000 in cash he intended to use as spending money. The cash was confiscated until he could prove a legal and tax-paid “source of funds”. Bear in mind that this was on a domestic flight and not an international trip.
Paying for all purchases in cash is not necessarily safe. It may be – but as with everything else, it depends on the circumstances.
“Joe” was now labelled in government files as a money laundering criminal in the eyes of the law. You may argue that he ought to be arrested and thrown in jail. That the ticketing clerk merely did her civic duty by being alert to an irregular situation and informing her supervisor about this suspicious character. Where’s the harm in that? Give that lady a medal!
Alas, that is not the point.
This search could have happened to anybody, whether involved in drugs or not.
It could have happened to you, me and any other good, upright citizen with no ties to the criminal underworld whatsoever, who paid cash for a long-distance airline ticket. There might be any number of reasons why you did not use a cheek (the airline might not accept it before allowing several days or weeks for it to clear) or a credit card (perhaps you got mugged the day before and had not yet received replacements for your stolen credit cards, forcing you to fall back on cash). Take a minute to ponder that one. If you pay cash for anything in many countries you may more or less automatically fall under suspicion of being a criminal.
This, in turn, might lead to just a waste of time. You could get strip-searched (which means discomfort). It may even mean a permanent record being created in government files to the
effect that you had once been apprehended and checked out as a potential drug-runner. If then, years down the line, you were to be justly or unjustly accused of a crime, the old ‘drug suspicion’ case would surely be drawn out of the files and presented in court, perhaps resulting in you being convicted of and incarcerated for something you did not, in fact, do. Merely because of the doubt about prior arrests that this past ‘incident’ would create in the minds of any jurors and/or judges.
