    US Passport - Enemy Expatriation Act

    Editor’s Comment: These days, it might not take as much as you think to rack up $50k in back taxes. If you do, forget about legally traveling anywhere outside the country. With a barrage of headlines about the travel ban against Muslims, the IRS has motioned the new administration to quietly give teeth to its travel ban as well. The IRS ban, however, is targeted against American citizens – and with a determination by the agency that you are liable for a large tax debt, your rights to travel can be revoked without due process, official charge or even consideration by a judge.

    Frozen, denied, unauthorized and grounded from whatever plane you thought you might catch. The fact is, that while attempts to control immigration are sorely needed, the heavy police state approach is likely to have some severe blowback – starting with even tighter security at airports and transportation centers. Biometrics and fingerprints are being implemented now, and may soon require all persons – including American citizens – exiting or entering the country to submit fingerprint, all ten digits even. This is a drastic violation of civil liberties, and a dangerous atmosphere to take hold. While many cheered on a reform of the system, and a tough approach to the country’s biggest problems, no one wanted a return to the George W. Bush era of security and brainwashing every time 9/11 is mentioned… no one wants anything close to that. People must demand their freedom, and make wise avoidance of the system of monitoring, tracking and enslavement.

    The New Travel Ban You Didn’t Hear About Is Against U.S. Citizens

    by Shaun Bradley

    As emotions intensify over Trump’s recent immigration ban, the State Department and IRS have quietly used it as a smokescreen to roll out a new policy that targets U.S. citizens for unpaid taxes.

    The passports of these individuals can now be revoked and their citizenship status undermined at the behest of one of the government’s most corrupt agencies. By granting the Internal Revenue Service control over passports, due process has been significantly undermined. The shield of protection that U.S. citizenship used to represent has transformed into an inescapable brand of ownership. The desperate financial condition of the federal government will only worsen in the future, forcing it to further consume its own people’s wealth in order to survive.

    The new program is set to be implemented over the next few months, and currently only those with ‘seriously delinquent tax debt’ are in the crosshairs. An individual must have $50,000 worth of tax debt to be subject to revocation, but that number can easily be adjusted downward in the future. Once identified by the IRS, a certification is sent to the State Department to begin the process. The taxpayer is then informed of the action taken against them, but any recourse from there is extremely limited. This policy blatantly targets citizens living outside of the country who may not have filed with the IRS while earning an income abroad.

    The United States is one of only two countries in the world that entitles itself to tax citizens while they work in other countries. These regulations were bolstered by FACTA legislation, which requires all foreign financial institutions to report account information on Americans. The additional risks that come with having to deal directly with the U.S. government have led many foreign banks to deny American clients altogether.

    As society progresses into the next age of authoritarianism, it’s clear that control over travel is going to play a key role in the power structure. The National ID is just one sign of the changing tide and will require federal identification instead of a state driver’s license to travel. These new cards would establish a kind of ‘domestic passport’ system that would open the door to serious abuses against law-abiding citizens. The consolidation of authority into agencies like the TSA and IRS should act as a canary in the coal mine to those worried about the suppression of their freedom of movement.

    The ACLU has come out strongly against this kind of control grid being established:

    “Americans have long had a visceral aversion to building a society in which the authorities could act like totalitarian sentries and demand ‘your papers please!’ And that everyday intrusiveness would be conjoined with the full power of modern computer and database technology. When a police officer or security guard scans your ID card with his pocket bar-code reader, for example, will a permanent record be created of that check, including the time and your location? How long before office buildings, doctors’ offices, gas stations, highway tolls, subways and buses incorporate the ID card into their security or payment systems for greater efficiency? The end result could be a nation where citizens’ movements inside their own country are monitored and recorded through these ‘internal passports.’”

    Considering all of this, the implications of Trump’s border wall should start to appear more sinister than ever to individual freedom. In the years to come, the wall could just as easily be used to keep people in rather than out.

    The pride that used to be associated with American citizenship created a country of opportunity for those willing to work hard, but now that pride has been replaced with a ball and chain that drags down the prosperity of those hindered by it. Tax evasion is seen by many as a crime deserving of severe punishment, but the hypocrisy of a nation like the United States claiming the moral high ground is laughable. Those who can distance themselves from the jurisdiction of bureaucrats in Washington should do so as soon as possible. America is starting to resemble the Titanic, and there aren’t enough lifeboats for the passengers. The objective now should be to avoid being pulled under the water when the $20 trillion debt bubble implodes.

      1. “Department and IRS have quietly used it as a smokescreen to roll out a new policy that targets U.S. citizens for unpaid taxes.”

        This isn’t anything new … the policy may have been updated, but these procedures have been in place for some time now during the Obama Administration.

        • In essence … this is old news, with a newer face lift.

          • Yep, I heard about this years ago.

            • The only ones wanting to ditch their country today are the snowflakes. Keep them here to let us have our fun(way) with them.

        • “In the years to come, the wall could just as easily be used to keep people in rather than out.”

          LMFAO !!! 🙂

          • DK……The real purpose of the wall was/is as you stated. Only dumb asses are cheering and kissing Trump’s ass.

            • I cannot imagine a better place to be in the entire world than TRUMP’S America. Why would anyone want to leave and live ANYWHERE ELSE ???

              It’s my America too !!! 🙂

          • It all depends on which direction they orient the barbed wire at the top.

        • Maybe they’ll target sharpton!!

        • BS!!! MORE FAKE NEWS – This is an OUTRIGHT LIE!!!
          The New Travel Ban You Didn’t Hear About Is Against U.S. Citizens by Shaun Bradley

          I reported this several years ago, that anybody in arrears in back taxes more than $50K would have their passports invalidated. This is nothing new or anything Trump Did. Get your Facts strait and stop lying to your readers.

          Try doing some fact checking before you Post outright BS!

          • These authors come on here, and like they just woke up in life, and all the sudden they are instant reporters and saying whatever comes to their mind and claim it as facts. Armchair preppers who never walked the walk, wanna be Ex soldiers think they know what’s in a BOB, Flunky Atty turned Author who now thinks he is some sort of economic guru. LMFAO!!

            Like I said before, Today, anybody with a keyboard and internet thinks they are instant authors. Hey, not much will get past me, or a few others on here. You can’t fake prepping, you can’t fake tech support and you can’t fake numbers. Yes you can have a fake drivers license and you can fake tits and get away with it. No Fake Articles. Ain’t happening here. Way too many eyes from smarter people will call you out if you post BS. Authors or Comment posters.

            • I first heard of this in 2014. Maybe it’s been updated since then.

            • Sort of ironic since you are the most prolific commenter

          • Zeus: Is this “fake news” from Zero Hedge ???

            Yuan Extends Plunge After PBOC Weakens Fix To 3-Week Lows

            That’s the headline. The body of the fake news says that the PBOC is “FIXING” the Yuan …. as in PEGGING !!! Is Zero Hedge creating false news again ???

            LMFAO !!! Send that Franklin to the Semper Fi Fund in my name. 🙂

            • PRICE Fixing a currency means a Country is manipulating its value.

              Pegged currency means it is following a direction of another currency. Like Silver is Pegged to Gold. Daily trading charts reflect a similar trading pattern in concert UP and Down together in unison. The Yuan is NOT PEGGED TO THE US DOLLAR

              You still are cluless DK. Pay up deadbeat. Fixing does NOT mean pegged. Nice try. LMFAO.

        • Total B.S., the State Department is never going to give away any of its power to the IRS and the IRS doesn’t have enough sh*t in its pants to make them give up any control. For those unaware, The State Department is the most powerful of all Departments in the Executive Branch. The Order of Succession is President, V.P., Speaker of the House, President pro-tempore of the Senate, and then Secretary of State.

      2. time to shut down the irs…I would hate to hear someone’s been shot in the face because of the unconstitutional bureaucratic “laws” which are continually being instituted by unelected Appointees. But this is the situation that is being pressed on the citizens.

        • Yes I know there would be many tears shed over the dead scum.

          • Menzo, no way I’ll shed tears over them.

      3. Old news , new day

      4. Death and Taxes:

        The bane of our existence. Yes, I agree that the collection of taxes from individuals is unlawful. I, however, am a realist. Unless and until the unlawful taxation of private citizens is challenged in Superior Court; I will begrudgingly pay the tax.

        The last problem I want is to have to deal with the IRS. They are ruthless white shirted thugs. I had a friend who tried to convince me to simply not comply. With all due respect, I admire such a brave and ethical stance, but it is foolish; unless your nephew is a “chew wish” number cruncher with connections. He might get away with it. But for the rest of us, pay up.

        __ ? __


        • I know two people, both friends, who fell into the hands of the “IRS and Income Tax are Illegal” gurus, and paid the price for it. The gurus took their money and my friends got the shaft.

          Render unto Caesar.

          • Yep, Irwin Schiff comes to mind. He went to prison for the rest of his life and his followers got the shaft. The only people I know that never pay taxes and get away with it are ones that use the system itself to do it. I have a multi millionaire friend who has told me stories of how he gets audited every year and beats their ass lol 😛

            • Ha ha ha, one time the irs audit lady came to his house. He setup a card table in the driveway and an adding machine. He wouldn’t let her in the house and when she was done she exclaimed “THATS IMMORAL! YOU DON’T PAY TAXES!” He just laughed and said “I abide by your rules what are you complaining about?” Ha ha ha ha

            • Genius: The only people I know that never pay taxes and get away with it are:

              Besides Multi National Corporations that hide their incomes in foreign bank accounts that don’t reciprocate tax info don’t pay taxes. Like in the Cayman Islands. And others below:

              501C3 Charities
              Churches and Religious Organizations
              Sovereign Citizens
              Drug Dealers
              Waitresses and Servers who receive cash tips
              Anybody who works for Cash only.

              That’s the list of who I know, who doesn’t pay any taxes.

        • Churches and Synagogues, are money laundering operations. No doubt!!! Religion itself is a Hocus Pocus Front for Money laundering.

          Say you are a Millionaire, you donate $100K to a Church, they take their 10% cut off the top say $10K and give you back $90K in cash. The money is washed, the Church gets $10K free and clear and you get $90K Tax Free back in Cash free and clear, plus you get a $100K write off to Charity. Its double dipping and this happens all the time. When was the last time a Church was audited? Its a friggin Scam.

          We need to completely do away with Charity tax exempt status or 501C3 Tax Free status. Even charities like the Clinton Foundation takes in Hundreds of Millions of dollars, they only give back to charity like 5 to 10% and the rest is play money. Chelsea’s wedding was paid for by the Clinton foundation. Chelsea should be sitting in prison along with her parents. She thinks she is going to run for Congress. LMFAO!!! Hillary thinks she is going to run for NY Mayor. Both delusional.

          Meanwhile you and I regular Americans, are slugging it out trying to make a honest living and get taxed to death and slammed with Obama care expenses. While the Clintons are flying across the Globe collecting millions in charity living the highlife and give less than 10% back.

          This Sh!t pisses me off so much, I quit working so I pay little to nothing. You can only do that, if you live off the grid with very little expenses or overhead. I am on a 2 year sit down strike.

          That’s why everybody needs to go live off the grid. Sit down and strike against the Corrupt Rigged system.

      5. Hello!!! This is nearly 5 year old info – This Back Taxes Travel Ban has been in place since 2012.

        Owe The IRS? Bill Would Suspend Passport Rights For …☑

        The House is set to vote on a bill that could potentially keep any Americans who owe $50,000 or more in back taxes … IRS enforced travel … ban condoms …

      6. The premise of this IRS Back Taxes International Travel Ban is so people won’t flee the country owing a lot of money to the Feds.

        In fact I think this may also apply for domestic Airline travel as well. Of course they won’t tell you until you are ready to board an airplane with suitcase in tow, and your travel has just been cancelled. Part of the fusion center info cross checking tied to your passports. And put you on the No Fly List. No escape from Taxes.

        • Zeus, I can picture them eventually tying this to a national ID card, which I’ll never get. I don’t go outside the US but I’ll go to wherever I choose within the US. F##% the IRS.

      7. Boo freaking Hoo !

        You want the benefits of American freedom without paying for them?

        Tough titty, said the little kitty.

      8. They don’t give a crap about the US citizen. they just want to be PC and let the scum/murders/anti Christians in.

        Some day this will change and I hope they get what is coming to them!!!


        • You wouldn’t mind if they truly wanted to be Americans and wanted to assimilate.
          They don’t want to embrace America like the immigrants of old. We have to equip
          our crappy liberal public schools with ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE CLASSES.
          THAT PISSES ME OFF!!! If you disagree, they say you are ” intolerant “. But then WTF,
          they are teaching about so-called White Privilege on college campuses. This generation
          of young students is being brainwashed with all that white guilt BS. Its getting to the point
          if you want your kids educated properly , they need home or private schooling. Your tax
          payer dollars are wasted on poisoning young minds.

        • Wait for Trump’s full cabinet and new SCOTUS nominee to be installed. Things are going to start moving pretty quickly, then, I think.

          Some big things in the works. Deportations for illegals using fake documents, using welfare, etc. Reductions in legal immigration of all types by big percentages. Tort reforms. Reductions in federal staffing. Sanctuary penalties. Big tax reforms, and cuts to start. All kinds of good stuff.

          • Smokey, I was thinkin the same thing, and more dems are gonna get sent packing in 2018 because of their obstruction and encouraging their criminal constituents to riot. They didn’t hear what was said on Election Day so their time will come to an end then.

      9. And the IRS is not part of the USA government. It is an agency that works and I believe is more controlled by the Federal Reserves who print our money.

        • No, the IRS is an arm of the Treasury Dept., and in fact predates any Federal Reserve Bank. It’s definitely part of the government.

      10. The irs is NOT an agency of the united states of america inc.

      11. Time for Reverend Sharpton to pony up…..Rangel too!

        • Rumor has it the new Treasury Secretary is going to crack down on some famous tax scofflaws.

          • Trump needs to go after the creeps that did Obama’s dirty work for 8 years.

      12. Germane to Income taxes, one only has to revoke their election formally per IRS code via Congressional mandate and you will always win against the IRS notice of levy or lien.

        To simply prove the point, after revocation the U.S. Tax Court never acquires jurisdiction to enforce such notices and the IRS must recognize the Order of the tax court when stating lack of jurisdiction and thereby dismissed.

        I have successfully done so for more than 10yrs and have a plethora of tax court docket proofs listed on the U.S.’s own U.S. Tax Courts web sight to prove it beyond any reasonable doubt… : )

        Just remember, you volunteered and if you revoke such elections, the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution serves as a bar against any claim that seeks to compel you into involuntary elections otherwise.

        The choice is yours to volunteer or continue to volunteer or revoke such elections to volunteer… : )

        What is your election?

        • Hmm. Interesting. Can you be contacted for a bit of clarification?

      13. The IRS is a very deep swamp with too, too many snakes.

        Remember Obama used the IRS illegally for eight years to attack his political opposition. And the IRS was glad to do it.

        The creeps that did Omama’s dirty work are still in the IRS. The globalist agenda won’t die quietly.

      14. Maybe it’s all about who’s in charge? Trump will use this to get Soros? Sometimes I wonder if the constitution can be a suicide pact when used by the domestic enemy? They will use our freedoms against us. We must indentify and destroy the domestic enemy? Of course our constitution will protect them. In Trump we trust? What other choise do we have?

      15. He said that ISIS was an invention of Obama, also, that the horrible birth certificate was real.

        He did/didn’t want Hillary to go to jail, after Benghazi was blamed on the “Innocence of Muslims” movie trailer.

        These celebrity dictator types practice the notion of “social experiment.” (Some give dietary and fashion advice and parrot popular conspiracy theories, on their very own tv shows.) He would play footsie with the claim that 9-11 was an inside job, or, at least, that it happened on the neocons’ watch.

        So far, it never, ever comes down to a statist or American interest, being held formally accountable, as by due process.

      16. If you don’t have a passport, your application for one will be denied if you are more than $2500 behind in child support. Supposedly if you already have a passport it cannot be renewed until you clear up the overdue payments.

      17. I think that all the people, who are genuinely confused, do need a social safety net and should keep doing your part.
