The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

IRS ready to begin revoking passports from Americans who owe large tax obligations

Back in 2012, Congress attempted to pass legislation that would revoke passport privileges from anyone owing more than $50,000 in unpaid tax liabilities.  And while this rider attached to the HB1813 Highway appropriations bill failed to pass back in 2012, it was once again put up for a vote and signed into law in late 2015.

However, the controversy behind using tax laws to keep Americans from leaving the country had kept the Obama administration from implementing it over the last year of his administration, but now that Donald Trump has taken office the IRS on Feb. 3 is ready to begin going after 'deadbeat taxpayers'.

President Trump's executive order on travel may be generating big protests, but an IRS missive on travel and passports may not go down too well either. More than a year ago, in H.R.22, Congress gave the IRS a new weapon to collect taxes. Tax code Section 7345 is labeled, “Revocation or Denial of Passport in Case of Certain Tax Delinquencies.” The law isn't limited to criminal tax cases, or even cases where the IRS thinks you are trying to flee. The idea of the law is to use travel as a way to enforce tax collections. It was proposed and rejected in 2012. But by late 2015, Congress passed it and President Obama signed it. 
Now, over a year later, the IRS has finally released new details on its website.  
If you have seriously delinquent tax debt, IRS can notify the State Department. 
The State Department generally will not issue or renew a passport after receiving certification from the IRS. 
The IRS has not yet started certifying tax debt to the State Department. 
The IRS says certifications will begin in early 2017, and the IRS website will be updated to indicate when this process has been implemented. - Forbes via Zerohedge
Which leaves the American people to ask the question... will the IRS use this draconian law to only go after Trump supporters and conservatives like they did in 2014 with Lois Lerner?  Or will they implement the law honestly, which means that the first individuals they should revoke passport privileges from are Al Sharpton and Congressman Charlie Rangel.

Oh, and not to be forgotten... Timothy Geitner.

It’s coming… travel bans being discussed over Ebola outbreak

The concept of restrictions on travel because of the Ebola outbreak is a two-edged sword.  First, the United States would not have had any incidents of Ebola on the continent had the CDC or HHS instituted a much stricter regimen for entry during the early days of confirmed cases in Africa.  Secondly, the number of confirmed cases are minuscule when compared to the number of airline passengers who fly everyday, with the economic, as well as the geo-political consequences that a travel ban might cause to the global system outweighing the risks.
But like the former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel so famously pointed out, the government should never let a crisis go to waste.

Bill in Congress could suspend your passport if you own taxes to the IRS

There is a new bill in Congress that is expected to pass that would allow the government to suspend your travel outside the country if you own taxes to the IRS.

Senate Bill 1813 (Highway trust fund), which was passed by the Senate last week and is now pending in the House of Representatives contains a provision that would allow the IRS to order the State Department to refuse to grant, refuse to renew, revoke or restrict the passport of any US citizen which the IRS certifies owes the IRS $50,000 or more in unpaid taxes. There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense - only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more.



With Capital Control measures expected to be implemented in 2013, which would force Americans to keep their money from going offshore, the laws being legislated are now affecting the average citizen far more than any action against terrorists, or in support of the 'War on Terror'.
