PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
The term “prison–industrial complex” has also been used to describe a similar issue in other countries’ prisons of expanding populations.
The portrayal of prison-building/expansion as a means of creating employment opportunities and the utilization of inmate labor are cited as particularly harmful elements of the prison-industrial complex as they boast clear economic benefits at the expense of the incarcerated populace. The term implies a network of participants who prioritize personal financial gain over ensuring one’s debt to society is adequately paid or rehabilitating criminals. Proponents of this view, including civil rights organizations such as the Rutherford Institute and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), believe that the desire for monetary gain through prison privatization has led to the vast growth of the prison industry and contributed to the number of incarcerated individuals. Such advocacy groups would assert that incentivizing the construction of more prisons with the potential for profitability will doubtlessly lead to the unjust incarceration of millions more citizens, affecting people of color at disproportionately high rates.
KEEFE COMMISSARY NETWORK
Keefe Commissary Network is the sole supplier of commissary to all federal prisons and many state prisons. Keefe earns hundreds of millions of dollars annually selling products to inmates, which are very overpriced.
Keefe is rumored to be owned by the Bush family. In the 1980’s George H. W. Bush (#41) had the law changed and federal prisoners could no longer be released for good behavior after one third of their time served. The law was changed so that federal prisoners must serve 85% of their time, even with good behavior.
Basically, the federal prison system is being operated like a chain of hotels where they want a 100% occupancy rate.
Federal prisons need to run on a merit based system whereby an inmate can be released early.
A 10-year federal sentence for a small drug charge has an inmate serve 8.5 years.
A 15-year state sentence for 2nd degree murder can have an inmate serve only 5 years.
This is unfair and discriminatory.
UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

CASH IS BEING BANNED
It won’t be long before cash is banned, so you better get it out while you can and buy some gold overseas. For the moment, you and your spouse can take out $20,000 total cash each trip outside of the US.
India’s recent decision to ban Rupee notes above 500 has become the financial media’s topic du jour. “India has removed 86% of all cash from circulation”. However, India is in fact just the latest in a series of countries to ban physical cash in higher denominations.
The war on cash has been going on since at least 2014, if not earlier.
To that end several countries have banned using cash as follows: “France has banned any transaction over €1,000 Euros from using physical cash. Spain has banned transactions over €2,500. Uruguay has banned transactions over $5,000.”
Outside of these countries Canada, Norway, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico and other nations are currently either proposing or rolling out programs that will ban cash from certain transactions if not completely.
And if you think this is impossible in the US, think again. A campaign is already underway to do precisely this.
Indeed, the number of high profile financial “experts” who have called to ban higher bill denominations if not banning cash altogether grows almost weekly.
As former Chief Economist for the IMF, Harvard’s Ken Rogoff is one of the most listened to economists in the US.
Rogoff’s current book is literally titled “The Curse of Cash”.
Then there’s former Secretary of the Treasury Larry Summers. Summers has called repeatedly to stop producing large denominations of cash in the US. Indeed, despite the chaos this policy has caused in India he coauthored a piece stating:
“Nothing in the Indian experience gives us pause in
recommending that no more large notes be created
in the United States, Europe, and around the world.”
Even former Fed Chair Janet Yellen, arguably the single most powerful financial insider in theworld, stated during a Q & A session “cash is not a convenient store of value.”
Regardless of your personal views on Rogoff, Summers and Yellen, they are some of the most powerful and connected financial insiders in the world.
If they are calling to ban cash, you better believe that discussions on how to do it are taking place behind closed doors at the highest levels. The fact that insiders at this level are openly stating this tells us that a campaign to ban cash in the US is already underway.
CIRS REVOKING PASSPORTS
Our Mission is to assist every American to obtain a “Second Passport.”
The Mexican wall is being built to keep illegal aliens out, but it can also stop Americans from leaving.
A Second Passportkeeps the U.S. government from blocking you in. Without it, the government can effectively place you under house arrest by taking back your passport. This is why it is mandatory you obtain a second passport.
In the U.S., it is 100% legal to have 2 passports or “Dual Citizenship”as it is called.
When there is an apocalyptical crisis as an American citizen you may not be able to leave the USA, but as a foreign citizen, the U.S. government must allow you to leave.
At one time in history in Japan, their citizens were not allowed to leave for 200 years. Anyone who tried to leave Japan was executed.
The most telling example of how second passports have saved lives and assets is during World War II, when thousands of Jews were saved from concentration camps thanks to second passports that they managed to get through diplomats from various European countries.
For every Jew who managed to get a protective passport, there were countless others who didn’t because of the sheer number of applications.
Traveling with a U.S. passport makes you a target for terrorists. Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year old, retired American, went on a cruise with his wife in the Mediterranean. He was shot by terrorists in the head, killing him in his wheelchair, and pushed overboard to the sharks.
Your Passport can be Revoked
Preventing people and their money from leaving has always been the hallmark of an authoritarian regime. Unfortunately, the practice is growing in so-called liberal democracies for ever more trivial offenses.
The U.S. government can block you from obtaining a passport or revoke your existing passport if you owe more than $50,000 in back taxes.
The U.S. government can block you from obtaining a passport or revoke your existing passport if they accuse you of a felony. They don’t even need to convict you.
The chess player Bobby Fisher had his passport revoked and spent 6 months in a Japanese jail before he was granted Icelandic citizenship. Fischer’s crime was that he played chess in Yugoslavia in violation of the economic sanctions then in force.
The only person in the world to have been indicted for a violation of this regulation – a regulation that has long since ceased to be in force, and a violation committed in a country that no longer exists – was Robert Fischer. This case was an example of a major violation of human rights.
Many people think felonies only consist of major crimes like robbery and murder. But that isn’t true.
The ever-expanding mountain of laws and regulations has criminalized even the most mundane activities. It’s not as hard to commit a felony as you might think. Many victimless “crimes” are felonies.
A study by civil liberty lawyer Harvey Silverglate, found that the average American inadvertently commits three felonies a day.
So, if the U.S. government really wants to revoke your passport, it can find some technicality for doing so…for anyone.
Ultimately, a second passport is like having a mandatory insurance policy.
The US government cannot stop a foreign citizen from leaving America.
You need to acquire a Second Passport as soon as possible.
Please see our section “Arden Sovereign Order,”which is similar in nature to the “Sovereign Military Order of Malta”
The “Sovereign Military Order of Malta” was a chivalric order of the Catholic church andtheArden Sovereign Order is a chivalric order of The Arden Army church.
From the Arden Sovereign Order, you can obtain a second passport for only $10,000.
The passport is issued from the Arden Sovereign Order’sembassy in Switzerland, but can be delivered to you in the U.S. via courier.
There is no birthplace listed, thereby masking the fact that you are an American citizen, which is a major factor in protecting you from terrorists and may even save your life.

5 FACTORS CAN TURN CIVIL UNREST INTO A FULLBLOWN REVOLUTION
1. Economic Factors: This could take the form of an “Economic Collapse” and/or runaway inflation/devaluation of a nation’s currency, as well as chronic or acute unemployment, lowered manufacturing base accompanied by firings or closure of positions or plants.
2. Warfare: can lead to a country’s dissolution either by insurgency or occupation, followed by an attempt to resist “Revolt”either against a foreign oppressor or a country that has (in the manner of the Hessians in the Revolutionary war) “invited in” an occupying army.
3. Religious/Theological: in the form either of “Persecution”of a culture’s predominant religion or factions/schisms leading to confrontation of conflict between two different religious groups.
4. Government Oppression: in the form of “Excessive Taxation,”taxation with either no representation (as when an executive branch secures a ruling outside of actual legislative bodies or processes) or misrepresentation (a tax is declared for one thing and ends up being “sequestered” for another. Other forms of oppressive acts from a “legitimate” established government include “Martial Law” declarations or unlimited police power in the hands of the State.
5. Civil Unrest: due to any of the above factors, with the added problems of “Cultural or Racial Strife” in the citizenry, with revolution as recourse, when the people suffer from the (genuine or perceived) blight of believing/knowing there is no legislative or demonstrative recourse in a peaceful vein. It can also parallel economic factors when the abolition of the middle class occurs with a great disparity of wealth between the rich and the poor.
When one of these events occurs, “Big Brother”has the right to come and take everything you own, like your money, stocks, gold, silver, real estate, livestock, tractors, vehicles, gasoline, vehicles, gasoline, food and even the clothes right off your back, using the “Executive Orders”already in place,signed by former president Bill Clinton.
The government even has the power to put you into internment camps. Remember U.S. citizens of Japanese descent in WWII.
Did you know that the federal government has bought“Hundreds of Millions”of rounds of “Hollow Point”ammunition, which will blow a huge hole in you. The U.S. government certainly does not need this ammo for target practice. If the people rise-up in protest, the government will use this ammo to kill you.
Many federal employees have weapons training, and even your postal inspector carries a gun. Since they are all sucking on the teats of the big government cow, they will not give up their fat salaries and retirement checks to protect you.
If Americans won’t pull the trigger on other Americans, then the government will just bring in paid foreign soldiers who hate Americans and would be happy to do it.
We all know we could never win a firefight with the feds. Remember the “Kent State Massacre”when students were killed by the National Guard, “Ruby Ridge”when a woman was shot dead with her baby in her arms by an FBI agent and the “Waco Siege”where 76 members of a church, including many children, were burned to death by the ATF.
When we say,“Fight For Your Freedom,”we don’t mean with bullets, we mean in the courtroom. We have some of the best attorneys available from our affiliate Arden Partners.
There is an old saying “Love It or Leave It”.If you are thinking to “leave it” in the event of apocalyptical crisis, see our section Arden Group, as it lists information on Second Passports and on the sectionArden Sovereign Order FAQ.
Benefits for U.S. Citizens Living Internationally
There are some exceptional benefits for U.S. citizens living internationally. There are 2 assets that do not have to be reported to the IRS and they are foreign real estate and gold held in private vaults. The gold could be held in a private vault company or just your personal safe.
The foreign earned income exclusion for U.S. citizens, is up to $100,800 per qualifying person in 2015. If the individuals are married and both work abroad, each one can choose the foreign earned income exclusion. Together, they could exclude as much as $201,600 income for the 2015 tax year and this amount increases every year.
Another benefit is that the IRS allows for the exclusion of a realized capital gain of up to $250,000 ($500,000 if married filing jointly) from income from a sale of the taxpayer’s principal residence. You must have lived in the house for at least 2 years out of the previous 5 years before the sale.
