Editor’s Note: This article by Jose about the blocking of personal bank accounts in Venezuela made me think about how the “Patriot” Act put similar rules in place here in the United States. When you open an account at a bank here, you have to prove you aren’t a terrorist by using multiple forms of ID and you become aware that you are constantly under suspicion of being guilty of money laundering with terrorists. Banks can quiz you about transactions and report you if they feel you’re suspicious. You can learn more about how the “Patriot” Act could potentially set us up for something identical to what Jose is describing here. And the next time you’re in the bank, look for those little triangle paper signs sitting around everywhere that explain why your transactions may be questions in the name of “fighting terrorism.” ~ Daisy
Controlling a society is not an easy task. It is about controlling food production means, limiting the mobility of people, denying access to everything, allowing basic human rights to be violated by the uniformed corps (very important because these groups have weaponry), and allowing irregular gangs take over resources that, otherwise, they would never be able to have control of.
Therefore, they NEED desperately to make people knee, and one of the ways they can do it, is via the control of the circulating money. This is nothing new.
The original Rothschild said once “give me the control of the currency of a country, and I wouldn´t mind who governs it”. Or something like that. That is exactly what this mafia has done.
They’re now freezing bank accounts within Venezuela
To do so, the criminal gang in power has reinforced their strategy. They are freezing bank accounts inside Venezuela, in our national currency, if they detect someone is using the account from another country. My own bank accounts, with over 15 years of history, included.
This is against the right to use the private and personal property, guaranteed in our Constitution. They want so eagerly to change and seize our private property, just like Cuba did. Sending money back to family is not an easy task. There is an entire underground economy that works receiving money in foreign currency in accounts overseas and exchanging national currency in a circular flow because the bolivar is not exchangeable for some other currency.
The last steps to instate totalitarianism definitely, are now slowly being taken: the financial infrastructure is being stormed with greater intensity these days.
Let´s make this clear. Since the beginning of the takeover, when everyone was charmed by the Uncle Hugo´s charisma, without any clue about what was going on under the table (things like Alejandro Andrade being in charge of the National Treasury, ”assigned” personally by Hugo), this was the plan. The subjugation of any private initiative in the financial world.
“The state must control everything” is the communist motto in Venezuela.
The “empire” (sounds familiar?) is ready to “attack us” because they “need our resources”.
Funny. Those stealing our gold and coltan are Russia, China and Turkey. I can´t see any other nation around.
But controlling 20 million persons without any popularity, regardless of the number of armed soldiers, is not an easy task. After controlling access to food, medicines and some other basic life necessities, the following is to seize the ability of people to dispose of their money as they please.
By doing so, they increase as much as their control level, as the stress on the people they need to distract. And this stress is exactly what they want.
By controlling the amount of who transfers to whom, when and where…well, they could use to put in prison ANYONE THEY WANT. As a matter of fact, the reason they don’t do it just because they don’t have the facilities to lock down so many people. But the attempts to convert the country into a police state just like East Germany is there.
The recent creation of the Migratory Police is just another indication. The worst thing is, that it is going to be a tropical version, with the consequent favoring of the criminals, and the repression and harassing of regular, decent citizens who are exposed to being kidnapped or stolen.
Upon controlling the money flow, they could strangle any entity that is opposed to the totalitarian state. Of course, this is not a specialty of the communist world. This is known to happen in the western world too. Hollywood and Wall Street are no exceptions. At this point in our lives, we all should be aware of what seems to be happening beneath the surface.
Here’s how they justify blocking the bank accounts.
Of course, they justify blocking the bank accounts, especially in the state-owned banking institutions, because they say they are “fighting terrorism”.
Once the account is blocked, they will ask for some proof that the money comes from a legal transaction. Of course, the evidence is subject to their criteria. If they suspect that the origin of the money is suspicious, they will seize it and the account holder will be sent to the…”authorities”.
If you can demonstrate that the money is legit, people usually can walk free.
For the moment.
The organization in charge of the investigation of this things is the SUDEBAN, and they have strict orders to call the SEBIN, the intelligence corps being used as Praetorian Guard, to take care of the issue, and these are trained by the Cubans. So you know what that means already.
All the stories you could have heard about what happened in Cuba, are happening now in my country. The Cubans imposed the Cuban convertible peso, a currency designed for limited usage within the country. The mafia tried to do something similar, with the technological improvement of the cryptocurrencies with the “petro”…but of course, there is not even the slightest indication of trust that favors anything coming from those thugs. Therefore, that “cryptocurrency” is useless.
The entire purpose of that useless currency? Evading the sanctions generated by their defiant violation of our human rights for years. The iron fist over the financial infrastructure is executed in some instances using the intelligence services.
Of course, there is a lot of business involving this: people with large accounts being…”released” after paying some…let´s say “fines”, and an adequate collaboration with the “authorities”. You know what I mean.
There is a history of taking over entire industries to control the people.
Of course, the blocking is not something that was improvised. Many years ago, Uncle Hugo had taken control of the Internet in Venezuela. He did this by seizing the largest private company of communications, the CANTV. Then, with the Ministry of Telecommunications providing to this (now) state-owned company the entire rights to be the only internet provider in the country (which is something).
Now, they are using another institution to violate our rights over our private property, our financial assets, the money, with the SUDEBAN. This “institution” is supposedly in charge of the banking institutions, and establish the appropriate regulations for their functioning.
Of course, the real intention is to control the information regarding the money flow. This is not unprecedented. Cubans could force their people into slavery because they did not have means to escape of the financial grip back then.
