INSTRUCTIONS:  3.9. Avoid Using Banks


by: William Huff, Sr., Editor of Reasonable Action, a newsletter of the Save-A-Patriot foundation.

They did it again!!!

These words are heard all too often here at the Fellowship when we receive calls from members and friends who have predictably lost large amounts of money that they had placed in the reliable hands of their trusted and "ethical" bankers.

We have tried banks and mattresses (and a few other depositories) and, in all our experience, the bank is by far the least safe. If it were only occasional, it would be one thing, but is seems to be more and more frequent that we receive calls from members as well as other patriots, who are amazed that all the money they had kept in a bank is gone.

We are not amazed--only frustrated when we consider the resources that are being lost; when we consider how these resources might be put to better use.

Precious financial resources are being senselessly wasted because many folks just don't seem to get it. Banks routinely turn over property without due process.

The fact that patriots who have been involved in the movement for a substantial period of time would call here and express total surprise at such a loss continues to baffle everyone at the Fellowship. IF you want to place your property in jeopardy, we cannot think of a better way to do it than to put it in a bank. This is especially true if you have already made a determination that you are not the subject of the Internal Revenue Code or any of its liability for filing provisions.

If you want to leave one dollar in an account somewhere, just as a teaser, that would be entirely up to you. However, if you decide for whatever reason, that you must maintain a bank account for purposes of "doing business" be forewarned that the amount in the account is roughly equivalent to the amount that might be in jeopardy--or gone, depending on the whim of the trusted banker combined with the zeal of your local IRS agent.

All property that is in the control of third parties who may not choose to confront the IRS or another federal foraging agency with the law must be considered to be in jeopardy. These may include all sorts of financial institutions, brokers, "trusts", etc.

Remember, the Fellowship is about the return of lawful government. None of this commentary has anything to do with situations in which a lawful tax has been lawfully assessed [as rare as this might be].

Before you open an account, try asking a bank officer if he is more afraid of you or the IRS. Ask him for the policy of his institution regarding a Notice of Levy form the IRS. Ask him if the bank would ever question the lawful basis of any action by the IRS or any other government agency. Ask him to provide examples where his bank has stood firm against the IRS when it has asked for funds to be frozen or transferred to the IRS. Ask him if he can document any legal challenge of his bank against the IRS in the history of its operation.

Don't base your decision on whether or not to open an account on any plans to take legal action against the bank after your money is gone. The bankers set up the whole plan in the first place.

Your local branch manager is not very high in the food chain. He is probably only a couple steps above the drive-in window at the local McDonald's in the real scheme of things. Don't expect him to become a hero overnight. The banks are not your friend. We have been trying to get some things down to where everyone can readily understand them.

Therefore, we have coined a new term to describe this new linguistic science "Free-Bonics". While we don't want to be condescending, we are not above using a little humor to make a very serious point. We cannot offer legal advice, but we can tell you about the stupidest things we see happening again and again. A word to the wise may not be enough in this case.

While old habits are hard to break, old habits can become very expensive in this case. I know the bank names inspire a false sense of confidence. That's how a con-game works

Why do you suppose they often include words like "fidelity," "trust," "covenant" etc? They know these terms inspire undue confidence. Do you suppose it was anyone other than a banker who "coined" the term "it's in the bank?"



BANKERS, WHO MUST BE CONSIDERED IRRESPONSIBLE THIRD PARTIES (because they turn over your property without due process of law--and probably without blinking) MUST BE CONSIDERED UNARMED AND VERY DANGEROUS!

Please do not take offense at our use of humor. We deeply regret it, if you are realizing the importance of these warnings after the fact. We will continue to take very opportunity to warn one and all that "money in the bank" may not be.

Each of us must take complete individual responsibility for ourselves and our property. We must use every available means to protect ourselves and each other from unlawful actions of government agencies that will not be prevented by our friendly bankers.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed! If you want to continue using banks, you certainly are free to do so at your own risk. We were not responsible in the first place, but now you will have even less of an excuse. The Save-A-Patriot Fellowship functions quite well without using banks. From time to time we have to educate businesses and even government agencies that we have every right not to participate in the banking scam. The Fellowship does not place any funds in banks. If has no bank accounts. The IRS has found this to be very inconvenient, but we are not interested in becoming one of their "customers".
