Asset Forfeiture – How Cops Continue to Steal Americans’ Hard Earned Cash with Zero Repercussions


Liberty Blitzkrieg – by Michael Krieger

Almost exactly one year ago today, I published a post which went on to become extremely popular titled: Why You Should Never, Ever Drive Through Tenaha, Texas. If you failed to read it the first time around, I suggest you take look as it provides a good outline of just what is at stake when it comes to this destructive and abusive practice increasingly utilized by police departments across these United States with zero repercussions for the offending officers. In last years article I noted that:

In a nutshell, civil forfeiture is the practice of confiscating items from people, ranging from cash, cars, even homes based on no criminal conviction or charges, merely suspicion. This practice first became widespread for use against pirates, as a way to take possession of contraband goods despite the fact that the ships’ owners in many cases were located thousands of miles away and couldn’t easily be prosecuted. As is often the case, what starts out reasonable becomes a gigantic organized crime ring of criminality, particularly in a society where the rule of law no longer exists for the “elite,” yet anything goes when it comes to pillaging the average citizen.

One of the major reasons these programs have become so abused is that the police departments themselves are able to keep much of the confiscated money. So they actually have a perverse incentive to steal. As might be expected, a program that is often touted as being effective against going after major drug kingpins, actually targets the poor and disenfranchised more than anything else.

While this epidemic of law enforcement theft is problematic throughout the country (see these egregious examples from Tennessee and Michigan), it appears Texas has a particularly keen love affair with the practice. Not only did last year’s story take place in Texas, today’s highlighted episode also takes place in the Lone Star State. This time in a town of 150 people called Estelline, which earns more than 89% of its gross revenues from traffic fines and forfeitures. In other words, from theft.

Here’s a little background on this particular story. From the Armarillo Globe News:

The city of Estelline is reviewing its police procedures after Hall County authorities reached a $77,500 legal settlement with an Azle woman who alleged officers illegally seized more than $29,000 from her pickup and kept $1,400 of her cash.

Fry, who was parked just past a speed limit sign in the tiny Hall County town, stopped Dutton that November evening for traveling 61 mph in a 50-mph traffic zone. Fry, the city’s lone police officer, asked to search Dutton’s pickup, but she refused. The officer then contacted Jolly, who drove “Kilo,” a drug sniffing canine, to Estelline about 30 minutes later, according to court records and deposition testimony.

So the cops set up a speed trap and then use it as an excuse to illegally confiscate citizens’ property. Kill two revenue birds with one stone.

Fry told Jolly he thought he smelled raw marijuana in the pickup and that he thought Dutton was acting nervously. The drug dog “hit” on the vehicle and the officers found more than $29,000 inside Dutton’s purse, still bundled in bank currency wrapping. Dutton told officers she didn’t do drugs and denied having any marijuana in her truck. She told officers the cash came from a recent property sale, and no drugs were found during the search.

During the stop, the Memphis police chief reportedly contacted Dutton’s two sisters, who confirmed her account that the money was received from a recent real estate transaction. Jolly, according to court records, then called an experienced local criminal investigator, who advised that officers did not have enough evidence to justify Dutton’s arrest. After consulting with Jolly, Fry arrested Dutton, who was held overnight and bonded out the next day.

“The city of Memphis claims they destroyed their copy of that recorded interrogation. The city of Estelline says they didn’t make any such video or audio recording of Dutton’s roadside interrogations; only Memphis did,” court records show.

In a deposition, Estelline City Manager Richard Ferguson said the city, which has about 150 residents, had no written drug dog policy, no written arrest policy and no established forfeiture policy. The city also maintained no written records of past searches or seizures, yet traffic fines and forfeitures made up more than 89 percent of its gross revenues in fiscal year 2012.

“We vigorously defended the lawsuit and believe that both Chief Jolly and former Officer Fry as well as both of the cities did nothing to violate Ms. Dutton’s constitutional rights, but recognizing the uncertainties of continuing with litigation, all the parties agreed that a settlement was in their best interest,” Reno said. “The city of Estelline City Council is reviewing their current policies and procedures and exploring whether to adopt a new policy and procedure manual with respect to the operation of the police department.”

“I feel that I was roped, corralled and branded and put out to pasture as a felon,” she said.

There is so much wrong here I almost don’t know where to begin. This one case highlights so many of the destructive practices happening in the U.S. today, it is as if this tiny Texas town serves as a microcosm for so much that is wrong with America. Let’s start with the drug dog.

Americans are increasingly becoming familiar with their Constitutional rights, particularly the 4th Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable search and seizure. Cops don’t like this one bit. Whereas in the recent past most Americans might simply allow a law enforcement officer to search his or her car upon request, many more citizens are likely refusing such intrusions. This is where drug dogs come in to provide “probable cause.” The problem here is that many drug dogs are signaling a “drug hit” when there are no drugs present. This provides a convenient excuse for any officer to search any car at any time.

A great example of this practice was demonstrated in the July 4th video of a police stop in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which has over 5 million views on YouTube. Once it became clear to the officer that the citizen who was pulled over knew his rights, the cop brought out a police dog that signaled drugs as an excuse to search the vehicle. No drugs were found. So either something is wrong with the dog, or the whole practice is a bullshit excuse for fascism. You know where I stand.

If you think that example is just a one-off, think again. One of the most horrific instances of non-leathal police abuse last year was the story of David Eckert, the New Mexico man for whom a routine traffic stop turned into a nightmare of torture, including multiple involuntary anal probes. The police dog that “sniffed drugs” and kicked off the entire episode wasn’t even certified to sniff for drugs in the state of New Mexico at the time. His certification expired two years earlier, but that didn’t stop local police from using it to harass and torture state residents.

The second major problem is officialdoms’ chronic “destruction of evidence” once it gets caught behaving criminally. Nothing epitomizes this more than the ridiculous destruction of hard drives pertaining to the ongoing IRS scandal. In a similar fashion, the city of Memphis in the above story “claims they destroyed their copy of that recorded interrogation.” How convenient. I’m sure the “dog ate my homework” excuse doesn’t work too well for the plebs when the IRS comes after you. Once again, the “elite” and their henchmen (like cops) can get away with anything, while the citizenry is increasingly “guilty until proven innocent.” Even when they are proven innocent, the guilty parties in officialdom, Wall Street, or corporate America are never, ever held to account with prison sentences, which would serve as the only real deterrent to serious white-collar crimes.

This brings us to the third point. Settlements. Settlements are what people in power are increasingly subject to once their criminality has been exposed. The absolute worst case scenario is a settlement, which does nothing to deter bad behavior. In fact, as many others have also noted, it actually encourages it. A Wall Street employee at a TBTF firm who knows the worst thing that will happen if he gets caught is his employer will pay a fine, will be incentivized to commit as much fraud as possible. The rewards are a lifestyle worthy of a Medieval king, while the punishment is a slap on the corporate wrist. They will take that trade any day. Unsurprisingly, when it became clear the cops in the above case would lose at trial, they merely “settled.”

Now here’s the worst part about these “settlements.” As you might expect, nothing changes systemically. The bad practices continue undeterred. For example, despite the fact that the city of Estillene has “no written drug dog policy, no written arrest policy and no established forfeiture policy,” the most they have committed to is: “Estelline City Council is reviewing their current policies and procedures and exploring whether to adopt a new policy and procedure manual with respect to the operation of the police department.” So in the face of a gross violation of a resident’s constitutional rights, the local police department’s response is basically “we’ll think about it.”

Finally, there is just the gross incompetence. Although the police department admittedly has no written drug dog, arrest or forfeiture policy, there is a little something called the Constitution of the United States of America, a document with which the police department appears entirely unfamiliar. What about the fact that the police corroborated her story with her sisters at the stop, and were even told by a local criminal investigator that they did not have cause to arrest her, yet they still went ahead and held her overnight.

Most importantly, what if she didn’t have the wherewithal to know her rights in the first place? What if she didn’t fight back? What if she didn’t initiate a lawsuit?

Would we even know? Do we even care?

BORDER PATROL AGENTS REVEAL THE UN IS IN CONTROL OF THE BORDER


by

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) has previously met with officials from the U.S., Mexico and various Central American countries on the pretense of labeling the thousands of illegal immigrants as refugees. Indeed, the United Nations is now categorizing the present wave of immigrants as refugees from political and domestic violence that are merely seeking asylum in the United States. By declaring this to be the case, the United Nations is “lawfully” exerting their international power to force the United States to openly take in any and all refugees with welcoming arms, at the expense of the American taxpayer.

A Chance Encounter


Nearly three weeks ago while traveling to San Diego on Interstate 8, I had a chance encounter with a Border Patrol Agent in a convenience store located in Yuma, AZ. I approached him and gave him my business card. I promised the agent complete anonymity with regard to any questions that he would answer. He reluctantly agreed to answer my questions. In response to my questions about the health risks posed by illegal immigrants, he stated that Border Patrol Agents have contracted drug resistant TB, scabies that can carry more serious illnesses and bacteriological pneumonia. As an aside, one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient, has been told the same by Border Patrol Agents whistleblowers and she stated so on my show on July 13th.

Some Border Patrol Agents Are “FED” Up


Last night, this same Border Patrol Agent called me at the number on my business card. He stated that he had been reading my articles and that he felt that I was expressing a deep understating the problem. However, he unequivocally stated my knowledge of UN involvement on the border was significantly outdated and understated. He stated “the UN is already here and he has seen clear evidence that they are calling the shots on the border”.

This agent claims that he has encountered UN personnel at the detention facilities that he and fellow agents take the illegal immigrants to after arresting them. I asked him how he knew there were UN representatives at the border, he said he saw the proof in the sign-in sheets at the detention centers. Also, he noted that members of the World Health Organization have been in attendance as well. So, Dr. Jane Orient’s fears of a pandemic invasion may indeed be well-founded.

Throughout the course of his duties, the agent has learned that UN personnel are making decisions on which immigrants to send to what location inside of the United States. He said he has seen the UN personnel and DHS agents gathering MS-13 gangsters, captured from different roundups, patch worked together as a group and then shipped together to various locations on the perimeter of the United States. He knows this because some of his colleagues are involved in the transport of these illegal aliens. The agent’s partner, also on the phone, stated that “I objected to admitting MS-13 gangsters into the United States and I was told that we have our orders to treat them like anyone else”.

I asked the agent how he knew these were MS-13 and he said you can tell “by the tattoos”. He recounted the fact that MS-13 operatives will have a tattoo with tears on their face which represents a person that they have murdered in the commission of their drug related duties. He said he processed an MS-13 member who had 9 tears on his face and he was told to process him as an “unaccompanied juvenile refugee”.

Both men stated that while on patrol they encountered a storage area where they found water barrels . Upon closer examination, they discovered discarded drug bags and a hidden cache of weapons (e.g. AK-47′s). They also took four nearby people into custody and called for backup. He said that clearly one of the four detainees was from MS-13. Eventually, four Border Patrol SUV’s showed up at the scene and were making plans to seize the guns as contraband connected to drug trafficking. When their supervisor arrived on the scene, the seizures were stopped and the agents were ordered from the area. As the agents were departing, they witnessed a civilian open bed pickup truck carrying about a dozen people in civilian clothes being transported to the area. In hindsight, he presumes that these men to be members of the Sinaloa cartel being brought in to secure their arms and other supplies. The agent stated that the stopping of arms seizures and drug seizures is becoming commonplace at the border.

After the event, all of the agents who were present at the scene attended a mandatory briefing in which they were told that they had accidentally uncovered an intelligence operation being conducted by ICE in conjunction with DHS in which they were allowing members of a cartel to operate with impunity in exchange for intelligence information on larger drug shipments.

We’ve Heard This Story Before


Let’s consider the public drug trial of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla and compare the facts of this case to the claims of the two Border Patrol Agents.

Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator” and son of a principal Sinaloa leader, asserted in court documents that Guzman is a U.S. informant and Sinaloa was “given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago.”

“Niebla also alleged that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals”. The details of the unholy agreement between the DEA and the Sinaloa cartel was that the DEA would allow 80% of all drug shipments into the United States in exchange for intelligence information on the other drug cartels. Why would the DEA want intelligence on the other cartels, yet, they would allow the Sinaloa cartel to continue with their drug operations right under the noses of the DEA. “The agents stated that this arrangement had been approved by high-ranking officials and federal prosecutors,” the Zambada-Niebla lawyer wrote”.

After being extradited to Chicago in February 2010, Zambada-Niebla argued that he was also “immune from arrest or prosecution” because he actively provided information to U.S. federal agents.

Niebla also alleged that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals. This resurfaces the issue that Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the gun-running arrangements in Fast and Furious as we all knew he did.

The preceding paragraphs and the revelations by the two Border Patrol Agents clearly indicated that criminal elements, which resemble the forming of an military unit, are being strategically placed inside of the country. When I asked what was their best guess as to why MS-13 members are being processed as unaccompanied minors, one of the agents responded “to protect the drug shipments and provide enough muscle in doing so as to threaten local law enforcement who might interfere with an interdiction operation. Both agents also said that some of the operations on the American side of the border are so massive, and supported by the Mexican military, that the Border Patrol routinely avoids confrontations because they are outgunned and they are often miles away from backup.

Both agents have now been reassigned away from patrol activities to administrative duties. Their daily tasks consists of processing paperwork for immigrants. They said that all of their unit has been reassigned to clerical duties as well. I asked him who took his place on their patrol activities. He said as far as he knew, nobody has taken their place, thus leaving the border even more wide open than it was before.

Blaine Cooper Taken Down By Facebook


Blaine Cooper and I spoke by phone late last night. He was with the Arizona militia on the Texas-Mexico border. Blaine has made several damning videos on his experiences at the border which clearly point to the fact that the border should be closed to all immigration.

Blaine has informed me that after posting damning videos on his Facebook site, which showed that the Border Patrol was standing down as the drug cartels were clearly bringing drugs into the country, his Facebook account was closed and all his published videos are gone as well. Facebook claims that Blaine is using an alias on his account. I know Blaine and Blaine Cooper is his name. Facebook is lying and they wanted an excuse to hide the truth as to what is really going on at the border.

Very tellingly, Blaine found the opposite of what I heard from the Border Patrol Agents in Arizona. The Arizona based Border Patrol Agents are angry about this Obama-planned invasion. The Texas agents are working in cahoots with the Juarez cartel in Hancock County, Texas.

Blaine’s information is not contradicting the Arizona Border Patrol Agents account, it is just a second side of the same coin which will be explained in the next part of this series. Also presented in the next part in this series will be the complicity of Senator Rand Paul in this UN invasion of this country. Further, Congressman Duncan Hunter is involved in Fast and Furious and his actions explain how the local police are being federalized and this fact relates right back to these reported events. And, again, Congressmen Gowdy and Issa are completely negligent, or complicit in this plot as well. It is safe to say that this information is coming faster than I can report it. The bottom line is that this comes down to the fact that our country is in the process of being carved up and turned into a state-sponsored narco-terrorist state just like Mexico.

William Norman Grigg: Against the Police State


DEA INSIDER REVEALS HOW AGENCY PROTECTS DRUG TRAFFICKING FOR THE ELITE

Ask Representative Gowdy about the
SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel?
by Dave Hodges

The information contained in this report is both stunning and frightening. However, to many in the DEA ranks and US intelligence community, this report will ring true and many of these personnel will be shocked at the revelations which will follow. Much of the material presented in the first part of this series is contextual in background in order to provide a high degree of legitimacy to the claims from a DEA whistleblower.

This material is the type of information that gets the Breitbart reporters of the world liquidated. Subsequently, I have taken careful steps to compartmentalize the material and distribute it to confidential sources. The information that I am going to reveal will see the light of day whether it comes from this column or someone else’s article.

‘There are many good people, who are loyal to the United States, who work for the Drug Enforcement Agency. However, the DEA, as an entity is both complicit in the fall of this country and will be active participants in the process.

 

Contacted by DEA Special Agent


Some time ago, I was contacted by a DEA special agent who is still on active status with the agency. His stated reason for coming forward is that he will not be a participant in the planned demise of the United States in which the DEA, as well as other federal agencies, will be complicit by their covert and overt participation.

Much, not all, of what is about to be revealed in this report, has already been revealed in confidential reports to key Congressmen such as Issa and Gowdy. Yes, that would be the same Trey Gowdy who is grilling the IRS on missing emails. This is the same Trey Gowdy who “prosecuted the full range of federal crimes including narcotics trafficking rings, bank robberies, child pornography cases, and the murder of a federal witness. He was awarded the Postal Inspector’s Award for the successful prosecution of J. Mark Allen, one of “America’s Most Wanted” suspects… This is the same 7th Circuit Solicitor, Trey led an office of 25 attorneys and 65 total employees. During his tenure, he started a Violence Against Women Task Force and a Worthless Check Program, enhanced and expanded Drug Court, and implemented a Drug Mother Protocol designed to assist expectant mothers break the cycle of addiction. This is the same Congressman that champions himself, on his Congressional webpage as a champion in the war on drugs, but completely ignores verifiable notifications from my whistleblower source regarding DEA complicity in allowing drug trafficking into the United States, covering up both the trafficking and the subsequent money laundering operations.

Gowdy knows and Congressman Issa also knows the operational details that I am going to reveal both in this report, and in subsequent reports. Yet, neither Congressman will touch this issue with a 10 foot pole as they grandstand over a “pretend” Benghazi investigation and “gee, what happened to the IRS emails?”

A Cartel You Have Never Heard About


My DEA source was involved in drug interdiction in Peru, which is the leading cocaine producer in the world with a 325 metric tons of operation. One of his main jobs consisted of developing confidential sources (CS) into actionable intelligence information which could be used toward retarding of the blossoming drug trafficking business in Peru.

The Peruvian police and military only intercept 3-5% of the gross drug traffic and that is by design. It gives the appearance that something is being done, while a drug trafficking empire is being established in this country to a degree never imagined in the past.

Senior DEA officials are running interference for a massive drug organization known as the SANCHEZ-Paredes drug cartel and it is based out of Peru. However, not many Americans will have heard of this cartel. Yet, they have been around since 1976 and are more massive that any of the Mexican drug cartels in terms of the size and impact of its operations.

This drug cartel is protected by the Peruvian military. Coincidentally, my source tells me that the U.S. military has increased training exercises with the Peruvian military. In yesterday’s article, I revealed that the Mexican military is also increasing its training activities with the American military in the same manner. This is a case of the same song second verse. We know the Mexican military is completely compromised by the Sinaloa’s . I have some independent confirmation of the same being true in Peru, exclusive of my source that the Peruvian military is being trained on how to protect drug shipments and defend their drug turf by the U.S. military. I know of two other reporters who are working on different aspects of this story and they will soon be published, so I will defer to them until later next week after the expected reports are filed in the media.

The Peruvian Pattern Is the Same As the U.S.


The TSA would have you believe that there is a terrorist who wants to kill every American boarding an airplane, so we should allow our children and wives to be groped by the pot bellied perverts at the TSA. They would have you believe that al-Qaeda is everywhere. Any investigative reporter worth their salt knows that al-Qaeda is a CIA front and participates in regime change operations from Libya to Syria to ISIS in Iraq.

The forces of al-Qaeda are nothing but the “boogey man” designed to make us give up more and more of our rights on a progressive basis. The same strategy is being employed in Peru through an organization known as Sendero Luminoso. The activities from Sendero Luminoso serve to cover the drug trafficking and money laundering activities of the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel.

Sendero moves the cocaine across the Andes to the Sanchez-Pareds. Another CS stated the Sanchez-Paredes are now the primary source of supply for Sinaloa cartel and the still ongoing Fast and Furious operations, which took the life of Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry. That means that Eric Holder’s pet project is not dead.

How the DEA is Facilitating Drug Trafficking


DEA senior officials are fully complicit in these operations. Let’s examine the leadership of Patrick Stenkamp who formerly served as the Regional Director (aka Special-Agent-In-Charge) in Peru. Peru now serves as the regional headquarters for the DEA in the region since Bolivia kicked the DEA out. Also, Peru has taken over the title of “King on Cocaine” from Columbia.

As Regional Director, Stenkamp decided what cases to pursue and which to conveniently ignore. According to my source, Stenkamp fired the last three special agents who dared to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel. This group operates with impunity under the watchful eye of DEA leadership and if DEA special agents want to prolong and advance their careers, they better play along or they will end up like the three agents who tried to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel, out of a job.

My previous investigation in looked into the role that Sinaloa’s played with regard to the present immigration crisis and it revealed three significant details:

1. As reported yesterday, the Sinaloa’s have been connected to terrorist organizations since 2007 as reported in the MSM.

2. The Sinaloa’s, along with MS-13 have received paramilitary training at camps outside of San Salvador along with military grade hardware (e.g. RPG missile launchers, AK-47′s and anti-tank weapons. This is all supplied by the terror organization of Hamas and Hezbollah.

3. The Sinaloa’s and Los Zetas drug cartels are using MS-13 gang members as assassins in removing political and law enforcement obstacles in Mexico. The Border Patrol has repeatedly said that MS-13 members are being processed into the United States by the thousands by the Border Patrol who are being told to look the other way, by DHS directives, when it comes to processing MS-13 gangsters into the United States.
The Goal Is to Turn the U.S. Into a Narco-Terrorist State

America is in the process of being transformed into the same type of narco-terrorist state as we see in Mexico. Let’s consider the public drug trial of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla.

Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator” and son of a principal Sinaloa leader, asserted in court documents that Guzman is a U.S. informant and Sinaloa was “given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago.”

“Niebla also alleged that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals”. The details of the unholy agreement between the DEA and the Sinaloa cartel was that the DEA would allow 80% of all drug shipments into the United States in exchange for intelligence information on the other drug cartels. Why would the DEA want intelligence on the other cartels, yet, they would allow the Sinaloa cartel to continue with their drug operations right under the noses of the DEA. “The agents stated that this arrangement had been approved by high-ranking officials and federal prosecutors,” the Zambada-Niebla lawyer wrote”.

After being extradited to Chicago in February 2010, Zambada-Niebla argued that he was also “immune from arrest or prosecution” because he actively provided information to U.S. federal agents.

Niebla “The DEA said it was OK to run drugs into America”.

Niebla also alleged that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals. This resurfaces the issue that Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the gun-running arrangements in Fast and Furious as we all knew he did.

The only plausible explanation serving to underlie this operation would be that DEA is protecting the drug trafficking corridors for the banking elite that has hijacked our government. The information supplied by the Sinaloa’s about their rivals protects the elites shipments from competition. Part Two of this series will explore the details of the money laundering arrangements which will expose this unholy arrangement.

Conclusion


In summary, drugs are supplied from the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel, who in turn ship the drug to their middle men, the Sinaloa cartel. The DEA is completely aware of this relationship and actively protects the business arrangement

My source also informed me that the members of the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel travel freely to and from the United States where they own homes and do not pay taxes to the American government. Meanwhile, we continue to get felt up at the airport by the TSA in order to protect us from these kinds of terrorists. This should make your blood boil.

And what happened to Patrick Stenkamp? According to my source, he was implicated in a hit and run accident involving a Peruvian national and was removed from his position. Stenkamp eventually went to work for Chevron which is very interesting in itself. If you recall the Anthony Sutton and Patrick Wood book, Trilaterals Over Washington, you will remember that Chevron is an old guard mainstay of the Rockefeller empire. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Part Two will reveal money laundering details connected to these arrangements which involves major U.S banks and senior level government officials.

May I suggest that the readers write to Issa and Gowdy and ask them what they are afraid of?

Next:

PROOF THAT THE U.S. FINANCIAL SYSTEM IS A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE OPERATION

PROOF THAT THE U.S. FINANCIAL SYSTEM IS A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE OPERATION
death by a 1000 cuts
What was revealed in the previous article should shake the confidence that the public has in the DEA and the federal government as a whole. My DEA insider has revealed that there is massive, unchecked banking fraud and money laundering occurring within our financial institutions. Our banks are run like a Mafia protection racket. If you doubt the accuracy of this statement, ask yourself why are we witnessing a massive kill off of banking officials from the nation’s largest banks? The answer is simple, dead men tell no tales.

The following is not entertainment reading. This is a systematic report which details certain DEA operations and it is the story of how justice is muted when it comes to drug trafficking. There is complicity in these illegal enterprises from official government and corporate entities, particularly the banks. If being amused is the goal of your reading, today, you might want to skip over this article. However, if you truly desire to begin to get an idea of how things work, then you will not be disappointed.

Before revealing the partial extent that money fraud has been revealed to me, let’s review the major facts as ascertained by my DEA informant.

1. The SANCHEZ-Paredes drug cartel provides the bulk of drugs to the Sinaloa cartel.

2. The SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel is protected by the American trained Peruvian military and has strong ties to Hamas, an international terrorist organization.

3. The last three DEA special agents who attempted to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes were fired by DEA station director, Patrick Stenkamp. The leaders of the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel travel freely to the United States and own homes in the country. This would require the State Department and the DEA “to look the other way”.

4. In Chicago district court testimony, it was revealed that the Sinaloa cartel struck a deal with the DEA to provide intelligence on other cartel drug shipments in exchange for a guarantee for shipping in 80% of its drugs to the United States without interference. As outrageous as this claim was, the validation of this fact did not require the revelation of an informant. The media coverage of this event is overwhelming, even if it was  mostly ignored by the MSM. Defenders of the deal say that this is the cost of catching most of the drug dealers and drug shipments. Skeptics see the DEA as being involved in protecting the drug shipments of the elite from competition.

This installment reveals, to some extent, the existence of an elaborate money laundering scheme which must exist in order to legitimize the drug profits.
Before presenting the money laundering schemes, let’s first take a look at banking laws that the average American citizen must follow.

The Banking Regulations That You Must Follow


There are definitive banking regulations that you, as an American, must follow. If you do not, you go to prison for a very long time.  Let’s review the draconian regulations that you you must follow, but the federal government and its agencies, such as the DEA and the State Department have no similar restrictions.

Cash Transaction Report (CRT)


Federal law requires that a bank file a report based upon any withdrawal or deposit of $10,000 or more on any single given day. The law was designed to put a damper on money laundering, sophisticated counterfeiting and other federal crimes.

To remain in compliance with the law, financial institutions must obtain personal identification, information about the transaction and the social security number of the person conducting the transaction.

Technically, there is no federal law prohibiting the use of large amounts of cash. However, a CTR must be filed in ALL cases of cash transaction regardless of the reason underlying the transaction. This means your cash transaction will be on the radar. And when the feds come knocking, it will be up to you to prove your innocence as there will be a presumption of guilt because, more than likely, your accounts will be frozen or seized by the federal government.

Structuring and Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)


There will undoubtedly be some geniuses whose math ability will tell them that all they have to do is to withdraw $9,999.99 and the bank and its protector, the federal government will be none the wiser. It is not quite that simple. Here are a few examples of structuring violations that one should be aware of:

1. Barry S. has obtained $15,000 in cash he obtained from selling his truck. He knows that if he deposits $15,000 in cash, his financial institution will be required to file a CTR. Instead he deposits $7,500 in cash in the morning with one financial institution employee and comes back to the financial institution later in the day to another employee to deposit the remaining $7,500, hoping to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Barry should have used multiple accounts to conduct this transaction. The Feds will be visiting Barry.
 
2. Hillary C. needs $16,000 in cash to pay for supplies for her arts and crafts business. Hillary cashes an $8,000 personal check at a financial institution on a Monday. She subsequently cashes another $8,000 personal check at the bank the following day. Hillary is careful to have cashed the two checks on different days and structured the transactions in an attempt to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Hillary should have made irregular deposits on staggered days. The Feds will be visiting Hillary.
 
3. A married couple, Bill and Hillary, sell a vehicle for $12,000 in cash. To evade the CTR reporting requirement, Bill and Hillary structure their transactions using different accounts. Bill deposits $8,000 of that money into his and Hillary’s joint account in the morning. Later that day, Hillary deposits $1,500 into the joint account, then $2,500 into her sister’s account, which is later transferred to Bill and Hillary’s joint account at the same bank. Again, Bill and Hillary should have used multiple banks. The Feds will be visiting Bill and Hillary.

The aggregate total of the three transactions totals more than the $10,000 threshold, therefore, a SAR would be filed by the bank and you would be the subject of a federal investigation as all three of the above cases clearly violate the federal banking laws related to structuring. It is a federal crime to break up transactions into smaller amounts for the purpose of evading the CTR reporting requirement. In these instances, the bank is required to file a SAR which serves to notify the federal government of an individual’s attempt to structure deposits or withdrawals by circumventing the $10,000 reporting requirement.

Structuring transactions to prevent a CTR from being reported can result in imprisonment for not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000. If structuring involves more than $100,000 in a twelve month period or is performed while violating another law of the federal government, the penalty is doubled.

The Draconian Enforcement of Banking Laws


Much like the enforcement of our tax laws, the federal government’s enforcement of its banking laws as it relates to CTR’s, SAR’s and subsequent structuring is quite draconian. Civilian asset forfeiture laws come into play. The government can seize your bank accounts while it determines if a crime has been committed. There is no more presumption of innocence. The government can literally seize your assets in perpetuity without an order of the court. Of course, you could try and sue, but you will be up against the deep pockets of the federal government and the case could take years. By the time your case is decided, the financial banking crisis that you are so desperately trying to avoid by withdrawing your money, could be over.

In the following paragraphs, you will quickly see that that the drug cartels and the agencies of trhe federal government do not play by the same rules as you and I.

The DEA Runs Interference for Money Launderers


In subsequent voice and written communications, my DEA insider source revealed the following, “We identified a Peruvian Sanchez-Paredes cartel money laundering storefront in Miami called “Pacific Gateway”.  Pacific Gateway is a known money laundering source.  An analysis of Pacific Gateway yielded an unpublished telephone party line number located in Lima, Peru that was owned by the Sanchez-Paredes gold mine company, Minersa San Simon. Telephone analysis showed that this number was communicating with stateside numbers connected to a dozen DEA, FBI and ICE cases involving drugs, money laundering and organized crime”. Subsequently, the DEA agents in Peru concluded that they had found “dirty agents” in these three federal agencies who were helping the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel and the elite in this country who profit from drug trafficking, to launder their drug profits inside of the United States. Pacific Gateway was the port of entry for laundered Peruvian drug money and the DEA office in Lima had the proof as well being able to identify members of the FBI, DEA and ICE as participants in this plot.

Very quickly, the DEA special agents in Peru learned that major U.S. financial institutions were involved in the money laundering scheme. The DEA informant went on to say that, “We also noted that Peruvians associated with Pacific Gateway were operating in Phoenix and Connecticut.  Phoenix made sense because of its proximity to the border and the easy access to the Sinaloa cartel and the need to launder money was obvious. However, the Connecticut connection made no sense, that is until one follows the flow of money. A financial analysis demonstrated that Met-Mex Penoles, a Mexican gold company, is headquartered in Connecticut. Met-Mex Penoles underwrites the retirement system for the entire Peruvian Military.” This is how the Peruvian military is paid off.

(Editor’s Note: I have learned that Met-Mex Penoles is connected to Goldman Sachs and its partner, Wells Fargo Wachovia. Hence, we see the drug money now making it into the major players of the American financial system. And this is only one of the major ways that drug money was being laundered into major American banks). Outside of my DEA informant, I can prove these major banks, turned money laundering institutions, go even deeper. and are more deeply involved in this plot than anyone can imagine.)

State Department Complicity


It is at this point, it is important to mention that the State Department is complicit in these money laundering schemes. It should be noted that all overseas financial transactions by the DEA must first be approved by the State Department. This means that nobody gets investigated, outside the United States, unless the State Department sanctions the expenditure. This gives the State Department complete power to kill any investigation and the State Department has done just that with regard to the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel.

My DEA insider source further stated that, “The report which I submitted on my last day in the office was never published and a month after I submitted it the telephone number which we monitored went dead. All my efforts to find out why the report was not published we’re stonewalled by DEA management as there was no money in which to conduct an investigation.  Remember, the State Department controls all foreign DEA spending. Further, it was revealed in Part One that the known criminals and leaders of the SANCHEZ-Paredes traveled freely to the United States where they also own homes. This would take State Department cooperation as well”.

The informant went on to describe how a Peruvian generated report he filed led to the bust of a SANCHEZ-Paredes/Sinaloa drug ring in New York. He stated that “Prior to leaving Lima I provided a draft to DEA New York who used the information to seize $30 million dollars all of which was subsequently returned to the Sanchez-Paredes. This can be confirmed by news reports and official Southern a district of New York press releases”. One needs to understand that the State Department could not block the funding of the New York investigation because the operation was domestic. However, despite a money laundering asset seizure of $30 million dollars, the money was returned to the drug cartel(s). This means that the Department of Justice had to intervene. Why was the money returned to these criminals? Remember, in Part One, the Sinaloa cartel members gave testimony in a Chicago court  that they had reached an agreement to provide intelligence information to the DEA in exchange to bring their drugs into this country.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI Are Involved In the Cover-Up


Serendipitously, I have interviewed John Cruz on a number of occasions on my radio show and much of the money laundering plot revealed to me by the DEA informant, was stumbled upon by Mr. Cruz. John Cruz was a former Vice President at HSBC bank in New York. John discovered that many of the accounts under his purview were money laundering enterprises in which the address for a series of bank accounts were no more than an abandoned houses or buildings with nothing more than a phone line. His investigation demonstrated that the Sinaloa cartel was the primary player in the money laundering on the part of HSBC bank. When Cruz approached senior level management at HSBC, he was told to keep his mouth shut or he would lose his job. John subsequently went to DHS and the FBI where he was ignored and he was fired by HSBC. He then went to the Manhattan District Attorney and he was advised to drop the matter because this was too dangerous to pursue. Cruz has written a book about his ordeal. The Cruz case also exposed the fact that these cartel members steal identities in order to open these “fake” accounts at HSBC bank. This is significant because we always here that identity theft is such an important issue and that the government is doing everything they can do to mitigate the danger, when in fact, these same government entities are complicit in the crime.

Last year, I interviewed decorated ex-FBI and DEA operative, Robert Mazur. Mazur was involved in the taking down of the Pablo Escobar cartel. He also participated in busting the BCCI banking scandal. On my show, Mazur named off a half a dozen large banks that are complicit in money laundering drug money. In the final analysis, the DEA insider’s story is not really needed to make the case that our entire financial system is a criminal enterprise system. However, his revelations show the operation details and how legitimate law enforcement agents cannot really do their job.

Conclusion

HSBC bank is the “bankers bank”. This means that Bank of America, JP Morgan, etc., bank with HSBC. If they are dirty, then the whole banking system is dirty. These are the banks that comprise the Federal Reserve which runs our financial system.

In this article, we have seen the cooperation of DEA, the State Department, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. If legitimate DEA special agents do not have anywhere to turn with their field work discoveries, then how can any American trust the financial system? People have criticized me for advocating for getting as much of your money out of this corrupt financial system as possible. Perhaps the defenders of the system, may want to take a second look at a criminal system that they put so much faith in.

The American financial system is a criminal enterprise endeavor. Both federal and corporate entities have conspired to break this nations laws. You are expected to follow the laws as they related to CTR’s, SAR’s and structuring. However, the federal government breaks everyone of these laws on a daily basis. It is a case of rules for thee but not for me!

One might also want to ask what to the multitude of dead bankers have to do with this plot?

In addition to these revelations, the DHS insider also gave me details on how the DEA will be involved in upcoming gun confiscation, the Continuity of Government for the false flag events which could be coming and the preparations for mass detentions in this country. The DEA is so dirty that they even eat their own. More on these issues in a future installment on this series.
