Biden’s tax plan is the beginning of the surveillance state

11

Professor Brian Brenberg, an Executive Vice President and Associate Professor of Business at Kings College, discussed Joe Biden’s new tax and spy plan with Tucker Carlson this evening. The plan will direct the IRS to spy on bank accounts on anyone who makes transactions of as little as $600. They’ll know every deposit, withdrawal, how Americans spend their money.

Professor Brenberg called it the “seed corn of the surveillance state.” They will use the bank as a tool of the government.

Banks are pushing back against it. They know people will stop using banks.

How Americans spend their money will tell the government all they need to know about our lives so they can control it.

  1. the car’s on fire and there’s no driver at the wheel
    and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides
    and a dark wind blows

    the government is corrupt
    and we’re on so many drugs
    with the radio on and the curtains drawn

    we’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
    and the machine is bleeding to death

    the sun has fallen down
    and the billboards are all leering
    and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles

    it went like this:

    the buildings tumbled in on themselves
    mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
    and pulled out their hair

    the skyline was beautiful on fire
    all twisted metal stretching upwards
    everything washed in a thin orange haze

    i said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful –
    these are truly the last days”

    you grabbed my hand and we fell into it
    like a daydream or a fever

    we woke up one morning and fell a little further down –
    for sure it’s the valley of death

    i open up my wallet
    and it’s full of blood

  3. Imagine the loses to the Banks when people move back to a cash economy. The Banks will lose their 3% per transaction. People in Red States have been using Cash more and more for years. The use of “credit cards” not only make it easy for the IRS to track your spending, but it adds 3% of overhead to your family budget. That’s because business passes that cost on to you. I shop at local mom and pop operation who give cash discounts; more beer money for me.

    Americans should seriously consider the repeal of the 16th Amendment. No Government should have the power to tax the People at will, deficit spend during time of peace, or take out loans that will take Generations to pay off. While we are at it, we should also repeal the 17th Amendment. If the States elect Senators again, the States will retain it’s power and have far more control over the Federal Government and it’s Deep State. The Globalist have been chipping away at our Freedoms for well over 100 years. It’s time to send the Globalist to the trash heap of History. We should be paying more State and Local taxes, because every dollar we send to the Federal Government just adds overhead cost before it comes back to us. That’s why every Federal Government program is so expensive, they have pay their Donors first.

    The Government doesn’t need to know how we spend our money, but we need to know exactly how the Government spends our money. The Concept of Government spying on the people is akin to treason. The Government works for us. The Government is our employee. If our employees continue to be insubordinate, then we just call an Article 5 Convention and fire them all, except the military. We can easily get by with a 2% of GDP Military; it’s almost 4% now.

    Republicans can get control of spending by limiting the Debt Ceiling. Personally, I don’t see a need for the Debt Ceiling to be increased more than say 3 months worth. Make Democrats make a case to the People for raising the Debt Ceiling every 3 months. This would force the Government to embrace policies that expand the Economic first, if politicians want to spend more money. Democrats will fight this because people with good jobs tend to vote Republican. It might even force the Government to adopt a simple flat tax with no special carve outs and that would force the Actual Rich and International Corporations to actually pay taxes. We also need to tax imports and exports appropriately to create and keep manufacturing jobs in America.

    • I like the way you think. If only we could make such things happen without having go to war against the deluded, gullible half of our Nation, who are entirely misled and deceived by the MSM and its controlling corporate-owned politicians/liars. The problem with the notion of civil war is, we Americans are so comfortable (as the global elite overlords know) that we will not budge from our comfy lifestyles until to globalists take away our stuff, begin to kill us off, and we are faced with nothing left to lose. Let’s pray we do not give up our guns before we reach that point, like Australians did.

    • I thought about that 17th Amendment some time ago. What I’ve come to realize is it’s a way for both the State and the Federal to shirk responsibility to the other. If it’s something they don’t want to deal with they pass the buck back and forth and you have no recourse, unless it some national type issue. So, when you write them you seldom get a decent answer.

      One person suggested this infiltration of bank accounts is to go after Small Businesses that do “cash” transactions. The other concerns that no one has considered is the Asset Forfeiture laws. Those have been used to steal from many people who were obviously innocent. No doubt the IRS is the last agency anyone wants to deal with, and sure can’t be trusted; Lois Lerner anyone.

    • You can’t have a cashless economy if the government does away with cash…. that has been discussed for many years. We are almost there and we have no choice. If they kill physical currency they control us and can take it all way anytime they want. Everything this presidents administration and the puppet masters behind the veil are doing is to gain total control over us, to break our will, to make us behave as they wish, in subjugation to the our national elites and then to global state. We must resist this with all our energy and fortitude.

  4. I would say rather that we have entered upon the completion of the Surveillance State. It began with the Sixteenth Amendment and the Internal Revenue Act. It’s been tightening down on us ever since. The final strokes will be ubiquitous cameras on all public streets and inside all “public accommodations,” the elimination of cash, the criminalization of barter, and the repeal of the Fourth Amendment. After that the telescreens will go into “private” offices and homes. Remember that you read it here first.

  5. Sorry to burst your bubble, but G.W. Bush started the surveillance state. He was an even worse president than Obama…if possible.

    • Actually, the big move to electronic surveillance was by Bush 41 with ECHELON. It was Bill Clinton who turned ECHELON on the Internet. Google was given research money by the Government. The CIA saw “Net Crawlers” as a great Idea that would allow them to stay at arms length when spying on Americans. Today if you have a Smartphone, the Government knows more about you than you probably do through contact tracing in addition to everything you do and say. The Intelligence people also make really bad assumptions, just ask Republicans in the Beltway on 1/6/2021.

  6. Biden believes as previous Democrats, taxing creates prosperity. They never put forth policies that are actual job creation engines. Their answer to failure in the results is needing a “magic wand”. Trump was the first “Politician” that thought in Macroeconomics terms, probably because he was an international builder. And being a builder gave him insight how the broader economic system works. He knew so well that Congress invited him in about the Savings and Loan crisis, and Also the UN building. They didn’t take his advice and the cost more than doubled.
