Things aren't adding up if you ask me...

 

I'm going to go on record with what I've been saying for a long time.  People all over are calling for Jeff Sessions to resign.  He's not done anything to drain the swamp, etc. etc. 

 

Could it be, just on a wishful hunch (or perhaps more) that they (Trump, Sessions & DOJ) are giving the appearance of 'foot dragging' or even 'protecting' as  'sleight of hand' in order to buy time, when in the course of the master plan it would be ill advised to release too much too soon and they already have all they need (ropes included) to nail these demons in one fell swoop 'at the proper time'.  You don't start the drama until 'the stage is set'.    Just because Judicial Watch doesn't have what they want from their court document requests and FOIA's, doesn't mean that the entire dossier isn't sitting on top of Trump's desk in the study of his residence in Mar Lago.

 

Everyone knows that the DOJ and FBI are full of deep state plants, spies and operatives.  Only an 'unqualified, mentally unstable' idiot would operate out in the open showing his hand to his admitted enemies.  But hey 'dim(dem)-wits!  History will show that Trump is the most intelligent and proAmerican president since George Washington!  Mark my words whether you want to admit it or not!  

 

Think about this... People were horrified when Sessions was beefing up 'asset forfeiture and seizure laws' last year.  Is it coincidence that Trump's executive order of a couple weeks ago, declaring national emergency with authority to seize all assets involved in corruption and human trafficking rests to a large degree on 'Asset seizure and forfeiture'?  Hmm.  Do you think there might be a link there?

 

Is it likely that one of Trump's first appointments in Jeff Sessions, would be so inept and even contrary to Trump's campaign promises which he vowed to honor for the American people and Trump just blissfully ignores the 'apparent' incompetence relating to a matter which is central to the survival of the country?   Is it even in the realm of logic, competence and coherence that Sessions is more pre-occupied with marijuana (as he appears)  than he is about the internal takeover of our country leading to it's permanent death if he fails?  It doesn't add up.  something else is going on.  I'm betting on the fact that we're going to see the biggest and most successful 'sting' operation in the history of the world. I'm getting my blanket and popcorn to get a good seat for the fireworks!
 

Sun Tzu is quoted in his famous 'Art of War':  "Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance"

 

And remember Teddy Roosevelt's famous quote... "In politics...there is always a reason for circumstances to exist!"  

 

Think about it.

Taxes on your Cryptocurrency Trades are Here!  

 

Sorry U.S. Citizens, thanks to the new tax bill signed into law just before Christmas you are now required to track every single cryptocurrency trade you make, calculate the profit and loss and keep a record of 'ALL' activity so that your uninvited partner, uncle Sam and his enforcer, the IRS (World Bank & IMF) can take their cut of your activity.   Between trade profits and value appreciation that could be quite significant.  If you are a frequent trader it's a book keeping nightmare.  


But you knew it was coming, right?  Previously such transactions were considered commodities and subject to the 1031 exchange exemption, whereby exchanges of like kind (property A for property B) were exempt from capital gains taxes.  Not any more.  


Here's one article
where you can read some details.  I don't need to rehash it all here.


My point is simple, cryptocurrencies are here to stay and being such, they are on the road to regulation and taxation.  Simple.  And with the explosive growth of this 'space' in the markets, do you think your uncle is going to let this opportunity for huge graft slip through his fingers without him getting his piece?  That chunk being paid to your uninvited partner could be quite substantial. 

 

Where will that money do more good?  With your 'uncle' Sam?  Or maybe with your family?  Uh huh!

 

There are solutions to this though where you can render the new law meaningless and have no fear of any negative repercussions.  (Of course there is or I wouldn't be bringing it up, right?) 

 

Solution #1: 

 

Learn to change your legal status and remove the IRS from your life entirely.  You can learn how to do this in the Lighthouse Law Club.  It's very simple.  It's not complicated and anyone can do it with no risk of any kind.  Join as a Constitutional Commando member. 

 

Solution #2: 

 

Learn to work with an international business trust.  The trust itself is 'foreign' to the U.S.  It trades in Euro as the base currency, not USD so there are no USD profits.  It is completely outside the jurisdiction of your uncle's 'enforcers' and they have no relationship, obligation to your uncle whatsoever.  Learn more about that here.

 

If neither of those options suit you, then, for your convenience, we've posted the new tax brackets here below.  You can evaluate what your bill might be and then you can think about how you're going to keep track of all your trades! 

Best Wishes for a profitable new year in any event!

The Globalist Central Bankers Fear Freedom! 

 b2ap3_thumbnail_private-banking.jpg



Bitcoin continues to set almost daily price records. It closed yesterday at $6,953.58/BTC. Indeed, since the beginning of 2017, the price of bitcoin has more than quadrupled.

Your friendly Big Brother is watching this price momentum. And he’s aware that the long-term success of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin threatens the foundations of the nation-state.


Here in the “land of the free,” the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) declared in July that “initial coin offering” (ICO) investments are subject to securities regulations. (An ICO is an investment in an asset based on the “blockchain,” which is the mathematical underpinning of bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies.) The SEC has also filed fraud charges against a purported bitcoin trading platform, suspended trading in a publicly listed bitcoin firm, and rejected the first application for a bitcoin ETF.

The SEC isn’t the only federal agency attacking cryptocurrencies. At the end of 2016, the IRS issued a “John Doe summons” against Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US. In a John Doe summons, the IRS doesn’t know of any particular individual evading tax, so it demands to see everyone’s records. The IRS suspects that Coinbase users are evading tax with cryptocurrency transactions. The summons demanded that Coinbase provide complete transaction records for all users between 2013 and 2015.

But for sheer overkill, it’s hard to beat the proposed legislation introduced in the Senate to crack down on the international movement of cryptocurrencies. The legislation would expand the definition of “monetary instruments” that must be reported when crossing a US border to include any “prepaid access device.”

If this bill is enacted, you’ll need to add up the value of prepaid debit cards, gift cards, prepaid phones, and prepaid coupons before you cross a US border. Not to mention accounts in any cryptocurrency. If the aggregate value exceeds $10,000, you’ll need to report all your holdings to the Feds.

What’s more, if you’re arrested for failing to comply with the new rules, the proposal would allow the government to file a secret motion for a restraining order that would freeze any account you own. Not just cryptocurrency accounts – any financial account could be frozen. Even your safe deposit box could be cleaned out. The restraining order could be extended indefinitely.

Of course, the US isn’t acting alone. Numerous countries have banned bitcoin altogether, including Bangladesh, Bolivia, Ecuador, Kyrgyzstan, and Vietnam. Others, like Algeria, are considering a ban. South Korea has banned ICOs. And Russia’s central bank started blocking websites that sell bitcoin last month, after President Vladimir Putin said cryptocurrencies were risky and facilitated criminal activity.

China has been restricting bitcoin in stages. In 2013, it restricted banks from using bitcoin. They could no longer convert the national currency, the renminbi, to bitcoin, or vice-versa. Then two months ago, China banned ICOs. And just last week, China completed the process of shutting down all domestic cryptocurrency exchanges.

What has governments so upset about cryptocurrencies? Rather than try to answer this question myself, I’ll quote Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, a true heavyweight in the global banking establishment. In a recent speech, Lagarde speculates that blockchain technologies could replace national currencies and conventional financial intermediation. She said blockchain technology "puts a question mark on the fractional [reserve] banking model we know today."

It’s easy to understand why Lagarde feels this way. Unlike traditional currencies, bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies aren’t created out of thin air by a central bank engaged in “quantitative easing” or similar operations. Instead, they’re produced using computing power on distributed networks in a process called mining.

The rules that make bitcoin work (the protocol) limit the number of bitcoins that will ever be mined to 21 million. That means it’s impossible to debase or otherwise manipulate bitcoin value.

Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are also decentralized. No central bank or other authority oversees operations. That means no central authority can “bail-in” a cryptocurrency. For instance, it would be impossible to do with bitcoin what the European Central Bank did to bank deposits in Cyprus in 2013. The Cyprus bail-in cost depositors up to 100% of the value of their uninsured bank accounts.

What’s more, since transactions are peer-to-peer (between individual users – not through a central authority), they’re far more private than transactions made through a bank. The transactions are functionally anonymous. Because of the blockchain, the details are traceable, but the identities of the persons involved are not.

It’s no wonder governments fear the bitcoin phenomenon. They risk not only losing control of their fiat currencies, but also losing their ability to force contributions (i.e., taxes) from residents. And the pushback from the powers-that-be has only begun.

Banks will applaud the crackdown, because the peer-to-peer model of cryptocurrency eliminates the need for a middleman, which traditionally has been a bank.

While some countries have pursued an outright ban on cryptocurrencies, the blockchain model is so revolutionary that many governments will opt for a more nuanced approach. A largely overlooked announcement from Russian President Vladimir Putin may pave the way. Putin has proposed a government-run blockchain-based cryptocurrency dubbed the “CryptoRuble.” Regular rubles could be exchanged for CryptoRubles anytime, with a 13% tax imposed on buying or selling them.

In the US, an official from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has proposed an initiative called “Fedcoin.” It would be a peer-to-peer payment system where you can send US dollars to anyone else. But the Fed would oversee all transactions, just as it does now. And it would still be free to exercise measures of what the IMF calls “financial repression” such as negative interest rates.

However, government-controlled cryptocurrencies are a poor substitute for the real thing.. And without a global ban on cryptocurrency transactions, it’s hard to see how restrictions or outright bans will be enforced.

For instance, shortly after China banned mainland residents from using cryptocurrency exchanges, Chinese blockchain developers set up shop in other countries. And in Ecuador, where cryptocurrencies were banned in 2014, the prohibition only moved transactions to the black market. The bitcoin price in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is only about $200 above the market rate in countries where it’s legal.

In the meantime, the price of bitcoin keeps rising. If it’s a bubble, it’s certainly a long-lasting one. Only time will tell whether it’s sustainable – and how Big Brother will ultimately react to its success.

What's the value? 

 

In this article I want to provide a very clear and unequivocal reply to those people who, are rare but they do pop up consistently, and ask questions like; 

 

- If you are so successful in what you're doing, why do you charge? 

- Why would you charge me to help me obtain my freedom?  

- If you are so successful in changing your status, you should have a boatload of money, so why do you charge?  Show me proof of your success!  

 

So in view of the above, I offer the following list of responses from which you can choose and select one which is suitable for your tastes and purposes.  Mind you, I have not shared any of my raw thoughts in an effort to keep this article suitable for all ages!  cool

 

Response #1:  We are running a business, not a charity. 

 

Response #2:  People assign a value relative to what they paid for it.  If they paid -0-, that would be the relative value to many and they'd squander what they have as a result for lack of sacrifice or appreciation for what they have. 

 

Response #3:  If you were in the market for a high end Mercedes car, you'd pay full value and 'LOVE THE CAR' and be so thankful to have it.  Do you not LOVE your freedom and a life of peace and prosperity equally?   Why on earth would you expect not to pay for it? 

 

Response #4:   Get out your pen and pad and run some figures.  What's the cash value of a lifetime of sacrifice, education, money spent to gain the knowledge and experience to be in a position to offer what the Lighthouse offers?   What's the cash value of a year and a half spent in prison and gaining that experience and insights which that brings to the forefront?  What's the value of a complete education in business trusts which has sold on the open market for $10,000 or more per client?  What's the value of creating a virtual library of hundreds of pages after filtering, selecting and creating the material to begin with so that you can easily access it and save years of your life not having to learn it the hard way?  Let's just say that a well researched video edited with production value, graphics, music, finely edited script, video shots etc. takes 3 or 4 days to produce.  You have 50+ of those videos already available to you for free.  What the cash value of that?  What's the cash value of being in a position to never fear or be touched by the IRS again?  What's the cash value of having step by step private coaching teaching you to create multiple streams of cash flow so you're never dependent on a JOB again?

 

And I could go on for some time on this theme.  Now what figure did you come up with?  Add it up and write it down.  Compare that to what we ask for membership.  And you're complaining about the pittance we ask to help offset the costs for making all this work for you?  Seriously? 

 

Response #5:   OK I get it.  You want 'Free Stuff'!  Here's your FREE STUFF: 

a) The book I wrote, organized, edited, published and made available at my own expense for your download:  How I Beat Satan...And the IRS is free.

b) Many Months of  hard work and sacrifice in providing you with 50+ videos for your benefit, are free! 

c) Several newsletters I write are all FREE! 

d) Intensive and detailed training on how to build an internet business is FREE! 

e) A sophisticated and profitable Affiliate Program is FREE! 

f) The 'My Liberty' cell phone App I created and maintain at my expense, to keep you informed on the go, is FREE!

How is that?  Does that make you happy?  What more would you like 'for free'? 

 

Response #6:  So you want 'Proof' of this, that or the other.  OK.  

First of all, just because one person is able to accomplish something doesn't mean that you'll be able to do the same.  There are many reasons for this. Each person has his or her own case and has his or her own skills, talents, understanding and capabilities (or lack thereof).  As soon as we offered 'proof' of one thing or another, people would take that as a guarantee that they could achieve the same thing and they'd be pissed at us and use us as the scapegoat for their own personal shortcomings or mistakes.  NOT going to happen.  The law club is about education, gaining knowledge and networking with like minded people.  We don't need to 'Prove' that.  What you do with the resources here is entirely up to you! 

 

Response #7:  For some reason some people seem to think that we're sitting on top of a pile of cash, gold and signed blank checks.   Do you always operate on unfounded conclusions which are based on assumptions and presumptions like this?  What makes you think that?  We've never given any indication or inference of such a thing. 

 

Response #8:   We'd be more than happy to offer everything we do, at our expense and great sacrifice.  All we'd ask is that you provide the means to pay all our bills for servers, IT services, support, hosting, content creation, admin, banking, legal, corporate infrastructure pay the staff and everything else, plus provide a decent lifestyle as the reward for all the sacrifice.  We'll be looking for your proposal.  You have our email! 

 

Response #9:  If the membership is out of reach financially for you, that's why we created our Digital Nomad training program to teach you how to build an internet business with multiple streams of income. Again....FREE!  That will help your poor economic condition.

 

Response #10: In addition to the Digital Nomad FREE business training, I've also created a FREE Affiliate program to help you generate some quick cash to earn your membership with NO MONEY OUT OF POCKET!    


Response #11: 
If you don't want to work a little to earn the membership, then we have a 'Payment Plan' for you.  Get the Pathfinder membership with a partial payment and you have six months to make up the balance!

 

Response #12:  What you have in the Lighthouse is more than knowledge gained from a lifetime of experience and sacrifice of the founder, but also from all of the other members.  So if you could learn in 1 or 2 years, what has taken many lifetimes of sacrifice to gain by others, if you could shorten that learning curve from many lifetimes, to 1 or 2 years for yourself, what is the value of that?

 

Have I made myself clear?  I've done everything possible to bring you more value than anyone could possibly expect (with a clean conscience!) and if you don't have the money now, you have the opportunity to generate it or pay it later.  

 

What else would you like us to do?   With what you have available here, there are no more excuses for you not to be a member or involved in one way or another and working in that direction. 

 

Yes, you have the Mercedes Benz luxury sedan of knowledge, education and guidance here.  And you're only paying 2%-3% of it's true value.   That's not a 'Bargain'.   It's a 'Steal'!!! 

If you can appreciate that, then you should join now and don't waste a minute. 

 

If you still want to complain and won't pay for it and won't even take advantage of our free tools and programs to work for it then I'll leave you with... 

 

...Response #12:   It's a free market.  We're not for you (and vice versa).  Please go get the help you need from your local welfare office and don't bother us.  We are productive, self reliant, independent minded problem solvers and, let's face it,  you quite honestly don't belong here.   But thanks for your interest anyway!

How to Survive the Days Ahead

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_chaos.jpg

 

The signs are all around us; chemtrails, newborns being required to get 26 vaccines, the rollout of the implantable chip, FEMA camps are now not only public knowledge but the core staffs are active and in place, weather modification and engineered disasters, poison in the food and water, political prisoners continue to be held despite ‘full acquittals’, the word ‘Jesus’ and ‘USA’ are now deemed ‘offensive’ and banned from public use, militarized police, SWAT teams over use conditioning us to accept this as something ‘normal’, ’Jade-Helm’ exercises going live and the list goes on, and on, and on.
 

Only an ignorant fool could be unaware of the signs of the times.
 

According to DHS documents, you are a ‘Domestic Terrorist’ if you fall into any of the following categories; 

  • - Ron Paul supporter
  • - Believe in the Second Amendment to the Constitution for the u.S. of A. 
  • - Support the Constitution for the u.S. of A. 
  • - Believe in and live according to the Bible


So if you land on a ‘target list’ then you can expect some of this: A Homeland Security office says it plans to review the privacy implications of using drones to monitor U.S. citizens.  That means law enforcement could monitor Americans in their backyards, cars, or at political gatherings in ways that would not have been possible before.  By the way, predator drones have facial recognition software, can be programmed to be fully autonomous, and can track your cell phone and intercept your emails. What will you fight back with if and when you are placed on the MIAC terrorist watch list and they come for you? 

Sorry, but your internet browsing history, attendance at church and Facebook have already implicated you.  You're on 'the' list! 

Surely you haven’t forgotten that the Obama administration purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition along with 2700 armored personnel carriers, have you?   Normal citizens have  accidentally discovered uncountable hundreds of thousands, or more, multi-body coffins stacked high in various locations, all near FEMA camps.
 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Program 1033 would resume providing ex-military equipment to police organizations, including university police departments.

“…Program 1033 has been running since the 1990s but was stopped two years ago by President Obama. Part of the program’s initial aim was for “use in drug enforcement by federal and state law enforcement.” As we well know, the “war on drugs” has been an abysmal failure.”

Two universities, Hinds Community College and University of Central Florida, in defiance of all that is sane and logical, obtained grenade launchers. A 2014 report states that 930 guns were provided in total to 87 different universities.

 

Let’s be clear.  A purge is coming and the goats will soon be separated from the sheep.
 

What can you do about it?

You can start living with these principles;
 

  1. - Be prepared to ditch your smart phone.  Get an old fashioned basic flip phone with a pre-paid SIM chip purchased by someone else to use when needed.  Keep the smart phone active and powered up with location services ‘on’ to use as a decoy when you bug out without it. 
  2. - Always keep location services to ‘off’ on computers or other devices you use. 
  3. - If you’re in a city:  GET THE HELL OUT!  Cities are easy to control with traffic choke points, control or disruptions of distribution channels can restrict your food, electric, medicine and other supplies.  Water can also be easily controlled. 
  4. - If you’re in the USA:  GET THE HELL OUT! Or at least be prepared to when the SHTF.   
  5. - No matter how hungry or thirsty you might be in an emergency, NEVER go to a FEMA ‘Relief Center’ aka ‘Death Camp’
  6. - Change your identity and identity documents. See Change your Legal Status - Practical Matters
  7. - Get off the databases and disappear in plain sight. See THE PRIVATE TRAVELLER video workshop.
  8. - Have at least a 60-90 day supply of food, water and medicine stored in a safe place you can get to quickly, or packed up ready to ‘bug out’
  9. - Have at least 60-90 days of living expenses stored in cash, silver or gold. 
  10. - Have an independent cash flow which is NOT location dependent. See our Digital Nomad free training program.
  11. - Create a landing pad in a safe haven which can be used for ‘leisure’ in good times, or ‘escape’ in hard times.
  12. - Have an alternative to the banking system.  Get out of traditional banking where you can be controlled, monitored and manipulated.

 
This is only a ‘starter list’ but all can be accomplished with your membership in the Lighthouse Law Club.
 

Your life could depend on it.  What’s that worth?
