U.S. New Policy to Freeze Your Assets*

U.S. New Policy to Freeze Your Assets*

And what happens to the assets once the bankrupt state seizes them?

By Kenneth Schortgen Jr

Easy  MoneyOn March 18, the U.S. Justice Department created a new policy that will have bankers contact law enforcement on anyone who may be performing ‘suspicious’ banking functions such as closing your account, making large deposits, taking out large withdrawals, or bank wires to unknown sources.

This policy expands upon the normal questioning that occurs for deposits of more than $10000, and moves banking into the realm of DHS by having financial members enforce ‘see something, say something’… then have the police come and freeze your assets.

The U.S. Justice Department’s criminal head said banks may need to go beyond filing suspicious activity reports when they encounter a risky customer.

“The vast majority of financial institutions file suspicious activity reports when they suspect that an account is connected to nefarious activity,” said assistant attorney general Leslie Caldwell in a Monday speech, according to prepared remarks. “But, in appropriate cases, we encourage those institutions to consider whether to take more action: specifically, to alert law enforcement authorities about the problem.”

A tip-off from a bank about a suspicious customer could lead law enforcement to seize funds or start an investigation, Ms. Caldwell said – Wall Street Journal

These new expanded restrictions to your ability to use your money as you desire is a form of capital controls by which the government uses spurious claims to control your assets as they see fit, despite the fact that you may not have committed any crime, or will use the money for illegal purposes.  And as is the norm for today’s government, citizens are considered guilty before proven innocent.

Back in 2012, the House of Representatives sought to impose their first round of capital controls by disallowing citizens from leaving the country if they owed more than $50000 in back taxes, and with Dodd-Frank now allowing for banks to seize deposits to help re-capitalize themselves in the cast of a bankruptcy there is no longer any real benefit to owning accounts in a financial institution, where your money is not only considered theirs, but you the customer are to be considered an enemy of the state.

Immediately following yesterday’s solar eclipse, Iceland’s Nordic Pagan religion broke ground on its new chapel and headquarters in Reykjavík.

Ásatrú, which is registered as an official religion in Iceland, posted on Facebook that the chapel marks a milestone in Northern European religious and cultural history.

The chapel will be 350 square meters and have room for 250 people. Construction is expected to be completed in September next year.

High Priest of Ásatrú, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson described the breaking ground ceremony as, “A big day for us. This will change everything for us as we have never had facilities big enough for what we do.”

The ceremony began at 08.38, at the start of the eclipse, whereby the boundaries were ceremonially marked out, candles lit in each corner, and local landmarks honoured. When the darkness was at its height, at 09.37, a fire was lit in what will be the centre of the chapel.

“There we can create an iconic Reykjavík building. It will be a place of congregation first and foremost, but we will also have office facilities,” Vísir quoted.

The eclipse ended at 10.40, when the first spade of earth was dug for the new chapel and the ceremony brought to an official end.

For the first time in 1,000 years a new pagan temple is being constructed in Iceland’s capital city that will house a shrine to the Norse gods Thor, Odin and Frigg.

“We see this as so much part of our heritage,” said Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, high priest of the Asatru religion.

The temple is ten years in the making and is currently under construction. The 4,000 square foot facility will overlook the Icelandic capital and be completed in 2016.  – Fox

Medically Kidnapped Family Reunite by Escaping Canada*

Medically Kidnapped Family Reunite by Escaping Canada*

By Terri LaPoint

It was a day that they were terrified would never come. The Herrmann family has escaped from Canada and has been reunited in Germany! Teenager Marc Herrmann was slated to stay within the system for the rest of his life after he was taken from his family in late 2013 over allegations of medical neglect. He was misdiagnosed several times, institutionalized, then placed in foster care, despite the urgent pleas of Marc and his family.

Marc Herrmann is overjoyed to be free

After he was falsely labelled as “retarded,” a hearing was scheduled on his 18th birthday to turn him over to the custody of the Canadian Office of Public Guardians. A man whom the family had never met was reportedly waiting in the wings to assume guardianship. Because his parents are German citizens, they were told that there was no way that they could be guardians over their own son. Marc says that he was told repeatedly that if he did not comply with numerous threats, he would never see his family again.

Today, after public outcry and intervention from the German Embassy, the Herrmann family is together again, and safely out of reach of the system that the Herrmanns insist is rife with corruption. They are in Germany. With the help of the German Embassy, they have escaped.

Though they were separated, Marc and his twin Nathan each decided to get Mohawk haircuts within days of each other. Neither knew that the other was doing the same thing!)

German Family Moves to Canada to Homeschool

The family immigrated to Canada in 2007 in order to homeschool the twins, Marc (affectionately known as Marcky) and Nathan. They were born very prematurely, and Marcky’s health issues led their parents, Gottfried and Patricia, to seek to educate them at home, away from the risk of germs and infection in the public school system. Because of difficulties with homeschooling in Germany, the family journeyed to Canada, in order to do what they felt was best for their children. The boy’s older sister remained in their homeland to raise her own family.

Medically Misdiagnosed

The twins loved their new home, embracing the creativity and freedom to pursue their interests, until Marc began experiencing health problems in late 2012. There was an incorrect diagnosis along with a treatment protocol that was not appropriate for what was wrong. There were serious complications from the IVIG treatment, and he began losing weight. The doctor assured them that this was normal. It wasn’t.

When his parents sought further medical care, Canada’s Child and Family Services (CFSA) stepped in and seized custody of Marc. He then spent time in an Eating Disorder Clinic and subsequently in foster care, where he says that he suffered greatly.

Marc Decides to Speak Out

Marcky felt hopeless in state care. He and his family tried everything they could to get back together. After it looked to them that there was little hope of returning home to the family he loves deeply, he began writing and reaching out. The boy labelled as a “retard” in the attempt to imprison him indefinitely in the system writes eloquently of the love of his family, and of the cruelty of the injustices that he faced. Many of his writings have been posted on a Facebook page set up by supporters of the Herrmann family, called A child in Canada. He spoke out about the treatment he was receiving, crying out for someone, anyone, to hear the cries of children trapped in the system.

His family reached out to Health Impact News, and Marc made the courageous decision to take his story to the public. His mother reports that one person within the system confided that Marcky’s brave actions in breaking the silence are opening doors for other children trapped within the system. Marc has been hailed by one supporter as a “little Hero who has opened many doors where Canada has hidden their corruption.”

After Health Impact News published Marcky’s story, which included the contact information for the Family Court Judge and some of the Human Services officials, the Barrister & Solicitor from the Department of Justice in Calgary, Alberta, contacted Health Impact News demanding that we take down their contact names. However, their contact info was a matter of public record, accessible to anyone on the Internet. (See: Canadian Solicitor General Wants to Restrict Freedom of the Press in the U.S. Regarding Medical Kidnapping.)

Threats Made by Canadian Government against Marc Herrmann

After Marcky went public with his story, many people contacted various authorities about his situation, pleading for intervention and justice. However, the move also resulted in numerous threats being made to Marcky, who writes in an email:

I was threatened by Judge Larochelle. He said unless I take down the article from internet I would never get what I want. CFS Huntershorn manager Val Naslund, my social worker  Vivian Ibrahim and her supervisor  Sean Johnson have told me never to sabotage the Foster Care, never to talk about misdiagnosed Eating Disorder. Never to talk about Judge.

And I was not even allowed to talk freely to German Embassy. I was not allowed to call 911 or inform about the abuse done by Doctors and CFS and Foster Care.

Well, I did not even have a phone so I could not even dial 911 when my hand was forced in the gaburator at the Foster Care. I could not even tell anyone when I was told not to use blankets from my home. I could not even tell anyone when I was emotionally abused by Doctors, Foster Place and CFS Workers. There was really no one who could help me. Child Advocates did what they could but they could not spare me from all abuse.

Family Reunited, But Still Traumatized

On the day before his 18th birthday, the German Embassy helped get Marcky out of Canada. He was met in Germany by his older sister. He stayed with her and his cousins until the rest of the family could get out of Canada and join them.

It was several weeks later before the rest of the family were able to join them. They report being deeply afraid of retaliation. The Canadian government delayed the Herrmanns exit from Canada, reportedly telling the German citizens that they had to have permission to leave the country. After many delays, the family was finally reunited in Germany. They are very happy to be together.

Marcky reports that he is finally able to see doctors who are taking him seriously.

“Like my parents said, I needed real help for my health problems, which I was refused … I am now given a chance to see different doctors who will help me.”

Marcky’s mother Patricia reports that Marcky has been deeply traumatized. She daily sees signs of the deep wounds in her son, and she prays for healing. He is together with his twin brother, and they send many photos of the family cutting up and playing together. A simple thing like going to a restaurant is a big deal, after what he has suffered for the past year and a half.

Marcky Writes about His “Torment” in Foster Care

Marc wanted to make a statement about his experiences, but reports that he found it difficult to think about the events that have happened to him.

“It was the worst time in my life. The pains were not only physically but also mentally and I was forbidden to tell my parents. I was forbidden to say that Child Services ignored the mistakes of Doctors and instead they helped them cover it up. How I felt was not a big deal for them. I was so alone for so long and I do not want to go back to that memory but I understand that if I do not speak up these tortures will keep happening. That is why I tried my best to write.”

This is what Marc Herrmann has to say to the world, in the hopes that his words will help other children trapped in the system:

HOW DO YOU DESTROY NEXT GENERATION OF THE HUMANITY

What I experienced gave me the chance to share this. I am Marcky. I was born too early but my parents helped me survive. No one thought my twin and I would live long but we survived and we became Teens. All went well until I was diagnosed with weak lungs and needed extra Oxygen Machines at home and could not. So I had to pay with my life. I lost my freedom, I lost my family. I lost my friends. I learnt many lessons, the friends from Church Groups slowly disappeared because no one wants to deal with a child who is in the care of CFS.

All I wanted was a second opinion and what was so wrong with that? Why could I not see a Doctor of my choice? Why could I not have my own opinion? It is easy block all my doors to freedom. The Canadian Doctors, Canadian Medical Association, Canadian Child and Family Services and Family Courts they are all corrupt. No one, really no one wants to know the truth.

Marcky reunited at last with his twin Nathan

Today I am home and I am happy but all those memories haunt me day and night. I owe German Embassy and International Law a huge thanks for saving my life. And I know one thing: As long as there is no one to support children we will always suffer, will be abused, raped and die alone. It was my Journey and I know what I am talking about. I have seen that. I have experienced that.

And all I can say something must be done urgent. I came alive out of the Torture because I turned 18 and I was not a Canadian Citizen. But I am broken and I will need to work on healing. My parents are helping me and I know I will soon be ok. But we children should never have to go through such pains. If my parents would not have given me the best example I would have become an abusive person because that was what I learned from Canadian Doctors and Child Service. I saw lies. I saw emotional abuse. I saw injustice. If I would be a weak person I would have started to take drugs or have killed myself. But I did not because I believed in God and I learned good examples from Mom and Dad. I learnt nothing good from Medical System or Child Welfare. No one really cared about truth or justice. Is that what we children should learn? Is that what we should give forward to our childrenès children? I do not know what to think.

I have learnt that Humanity is built on families and if you destroy families what will our world look like. I think adults need to admit their mistakes and put aside their pride and arrogance. We children are taught to say the truth and not to harm. But why do adults do not follow natural laws they taught us?

I think we children coming out of the Child Services Care are no longer well balanced because we are all broken. By taking us away from our families they traumatize us. By separating us forcefully just to cover up mistakes of Doctors is for me corruption. The Malpractices should be corrected and Families should be helped but instead child welfare agents are tearing families apart permanently. In other words we children are paying with our lives for the power of these adults and professions.

Child welfare agents are claiming all the while that they are ‘helping children’ but we end up permanently traumatized, killed, raped or became suicidal. If this is called the best interest of children I think it is creep[y] to be a child. Then we are beings without rights. I was lucky enough to be saved. But many are still caught up in that system. I see this way

First they take away our parents

Then they call us crazy

Then they isolate us

Then they keep us away from schooling

Then they threaten us not to talk to media

Then they tell us to pretend to have happy hrs when we see our parents

They they tell us that if we talk bad about Foster Care we will not see our parents anymore

Then they tell us that we should not talk bad about CFS , Doctors and Judges

How should the world then know what we are going through

And people wonder why children died in Care

It’s so easy to kill us systematically

How should police hear our cry

when we do not even have a phone to call them

Foster people are mostly Doctors

Engineers

Priests

Religious People

No one would point out at them

They can ridicule us

Abuse us

Behind Golden Walls

No one hears

No one sees

No one feels

How many more of us must die

How many more of us must be abused

How many more of us will be called retard

How many more of us will be raped

How many more of us will be used for research

How many more parents must suffer

How many more siblings must suffer

Please do something

Please

Conscientious Scientists want a Ban on Editing the Human Genome*

A group of leading biologists have called for worldwide boycott on a new technique for editing genomes that results in DNA being altered in a way that could be inherited by future generations.

While the technique has many benefits, such as curing genetic diseases, it can also be used to enhance qualities like beauty or intelligence – something ethicists believe should not be done.

The biologists are also concerned that the technique is so easy to use that doctors may push ahead with it before it’s clinically safe to do so, they say in a paper on the subject, which was published in the journal Science.

“You could exert control over human heredity with this technique, and that is why we are raising the issue,” said David Baltimore, a former president of the California Institute of Technology, who was one of the scientists behind the paper.

The biologists say they want to continue laboratory research on the technique, which is no way near ready for clinical use.

“It raises the most fundamental of issues about how we are going to view our humanity in the future and whether we are going to take the dramatic step of modifying our own germline and in a sense take control of our genetic destiny, which raises enormous peril for humanity,” said George Q. Daley, a stem cell expert at Boston Children’s Hospital and another member of the group, as quoted by the New York Times.

In 1975, when gene science and medicine was in its infancy, scientists worldwide agreed not to manipulate genes using the so-called recombinant DNA technique.

“We asked at that time that nobody do certain experiments, and in fact nobody did, to my knowledge. So there is a moral authority you can assert from the U.S., and that is what we hope to do,” said Dr. Baltimore, who was a member of the 1975 group.

But while such techniques are tightly regulated in the US and Europe, the biologists are concerned about countries where regulation is much more lax.

Though new method of recombinant DNA editing is known by the acronym Crispr-Cas9, and although highly efficient there is a risk that the genome can be cut at unintended sites. This issue is something that Jennifer Doudna, who invented the genome-editing approach, wants to see thoroughly researched before anything is done to a human. So-far the technique has been successfully used in mice rats and monkeys.

“We worry about people making changes without the knowledge of what those changes mean in terms of the overall genome. I personally think we are just not smart enough — and won’t be for a very long time — to feel comfortable about the consequences of changing heredity, even in a single individual,” Dr. Baltimore said.

The idea of gene therapy has already been accepted by ethicists, but this dies with the patient and is not passed on to future generations.

In February the British parliament passed the transfer of mitochondria, small DNA-containing organelles to human eggs, but this technique is less far-reaching than gene editing.

The UK became the first person to legalize three-person babies on February 3, where DNA is from two women and one man. Critics said the technique raises too many ethical and safety concerns but proponents said it was “good news for progressive medicine.”

Ecuador FM: If There’s a Threat On This Continent, It’s the US*

All this fuss!  What Obama meant to say that any sovereign state that thinks and acts according to the benefit of its people is a threat to to the NWO…

Now that’s nothing to get upset about, is it!

Ecuador FM: If There’s a Threat On This Continent, It’s the US*

As Latin American leaders respond to US President Barack Obama’s declaration that Venezuela poses a “national security threat,” Sputnik’s Karina Stenquist sat down for an exclusive interview with Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño to discuss relations between the US and Latin America.

The response from Maduro and other Latin American leaders was swift and, for the most part, unified in vocal opposition to the move by the US.

Even Raul Castro of Cuba — whose country is in the midst of a historic normalization of relations with the US — criticized the order, denouncing “the violation of sovereignty or the damage of peace with impunity in the region.”

The twelve-country Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) condemned Obama’s executive order as well, calling for its retraction.

Shortly afterward, leaders of the member states of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) met in Caracas, and drafted a formal response to the executive order, firmly rejecting it as a “threat of interference that runs counter to the principle of sovereignty and the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of states.”

Patiño, in his turn, called Obama’s order “a decree that in no way favours good relations between countries on the same continent.”

Sputnik: What came of the ALBA summit?

Patiño: “In that meeting, we couldn’t even conceive of, much less tolerate, the idea that Venezuela is a threat to the US. Where is the threat? There isn’t the slightest possibility of being a threat.

“They’re a trade partner of the US, they sell them oil every day, there are all sorts of relations — commercial, tourist — between the two countries. That’s why the order doesn’t make the least bit of sense, doesn’t have the least basis.

“[During recent violence and protest in Venezuela] there has clearly been an attempt to impose violent conditions made by some violent groups. We’re not talking about all the opposition — there is democratic opposition, who we spoke with at the UNASUR commission. But there are also violent groups, that, when you ask them, when they are interviewed, ‘Why are you out here?’ — ‘We’re here in the street until Maduro leaves.’ They want Maduro out by elections or, if not, by force.

“The Venezuelan revolution isn’t going to come to an end through external meddling. And it’s not their place to put an end to the Bolivarian revolution, but to respect each country.”

Sputnik: How do you respond to those that say that Latin American leaders are overreacting, talking about invasion and conspiracy, when it’s just formal language to impose limited sanctions?

Patiño: “When a government says something, when the president signs something, when he uses ‘I’, ‘I, the President of the United States, Barack Obama’, you can’t say it’s just a formality. Just to take measures.

“The problem is that, often, that decision, those orders, have been a prelude to military interventions. We know that — like Afghanistan, like Iraq, and other countries — that they were considered a threat and then invaded. They aren’t always invaded. Sometimes not. But often it’s just this justification that’s given for intervention.

“Because, if I consider you a threat to me, I must act to stop that threat…That’s why the terms he uses are so serious.”

Sputnik: White House spokesperson Jen Psaki recently called accusations of conspiracies levelled by Nicolas Maduro against the US “ludicrous” and cited a “long-standing policy” of not backing coups or other non-democratic transitions of power. How do you respond?

Patiño: “We in Latin America have a long-standing tradition of US intervention. We know it. By heart and forever. For all of the 20th century, and even the 19th century, with the first interventions by the filibusters, as they were called, in Nicaragua.

“But in the 20th century: The Dominican Republic, Grenada, Panama, Chile. Not just military interventions, but we’re talking about dictatorships, imposed by political powers in the United States. Chile, Argentina, Uruguay.

“In our country, in Ecuador, in 1963: We had a lovely tradition of democracy, economic progress and, as a result of CIA actions, a dictatorship broke that democracy to pieces… It’s a shame, but the US longstanding tradition is one of intervening, invading, abusing and producing dictatorships in our region.

If there is a threat on this continent, it is the United States. They’re the only one that can be considered to be such from historical experience. They are a threat to our countries. And, despite that, we still believe they can change, someday, we know it’s difficult.”

A Light at the End of the Tunnel

March 16 marked the 1000th day that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been living, under asylum, in the embassy of Ecuador in London. The Swedish prosecutors who have been after him since 2010 on charges of sexual assault have, for the first time, conceded to interview him in the embassy instead of insisting he must be questioned in Sweden, where he fears further extradition to the United States.

One of the reasons Swedish prosecutors are changing tack is that, as a result of legal proceedings concerns a petition made by Assange, courts directly admonished the prosecution for its inaction.

Sputnik: What does this sudden change in strategy mean for Assange?

Patiño: “At least, we’re starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, for the first time, and very late in coming. But we’re starting to see it. We told Sweden right at the start, the first day, we’re prepared to facilitate conditions for you to take his statements. Because we knew there were important charges against Julian Assange…and in four and a half years, not even a first step has been taken to address those charges….

“The second reason [that the Swedish prosecutor has changed her mind]- which is really worrying — is that the prosecutor says, ‘OK, now I’ll do the interview because the statute of limitations is running out.’ I have to ask myself: what if the statute of limitations was 50 years? Would they take 50 years? Leave someone stuck in our embassy for 50 years?

“It’s incredibly serious…And in the mean time to have so flagrantly, so gravely, violated the human rights of Julian Assange. 1000 days! And now to just say, ‘OK, I can take the statement.’ Why didn’t they do it the first day?…

“And imagine, they take the statement and come to the conclusion that they shouldn’t go ahead with the charges? Shouldn’t take him to trial? ‘Truth is, yes, with what you’ve told me, you should be able to go home. Nothing’s happened here.’ And the 1000 days?”
