401kThey will take our retirement accounts, they will take our IRA’s. They will say we’re going to save you, we’re going to give you government bonds.“- Jim Rogers
From Obama’s MyRA announcement to Russia massively divesting itself of UST bond holdings, it is becoming apparent that something we have been warning about for years here at SD is not only possible, but is in fact extremely likely to occur- the national confiscation of 401k retirement funds into forced treasury bond allocations.
The MUST WATCH mini-doc below connects the dots, and reveals the 401k scheme:

Ron Paul Jim RogersThey will take our retirement accounts.  They will take our 401k’s.  They will say ‘you’ve all been having such hard times earning money in your 401k’s is we’re going to save you with 30 year gov’t bonds which are guaranteed at 3%, and you give us your retirement assets in return.’
In the 1930′s they took gold, this time I don’t think they will take bank accounts, but I would be very worried about having an IRA or a pension plan in the United States.
  -Jim Rogers
They will do what they think is necessary and they’ll use force, intimidation, and guns, because you can’t challenge the state’s so called right to control the money.  They will confiscate retirement funds if they need to do it.  Eventually if you have private fund, the people I know in Washington, they’re quite capable of saying, You’ve got to save the country, you can buy Treasury bills from now on!  -Ron Paul

In the words of The Sovereign Man:  This is happening.
Ron Paul & Jim Rogers’ MUST WATCH prophetic warning on Obama’s MyRA & gov’t confiscation of retirement funds is below:

gun forcedIn his latest interview, the Golden Jackass discusses the Obama administration’s move to force retirement assets into the MyRA ponzi fund of toxic US Treasury bonds.
Willie states that the MyRA will be a forced government IRA and will include toxic Fannie Mae mortgage bonds, and like SD’s AGXIIK, he states that private pension funds will be targeted next!

With last night’s announcement by President Obama of his new MyRA, the “No Risk, Guaranteed Return” Retirement Savings Bond Program, we thought it apropos to bring back AGXIIK’s November 2012 warning that President Obama had begun a push to confiscate Americans’ IRA’s & 401k’s, and force retirement assets into treasury bonds.
While many have scoffed, we have long warned at SD that Americans’ retirement plans are the last remaining bastions of wealth for the criminal banksters to pilfer, and that they will ultimately be confiscated via forced allocation into treasury investment vehicles.
With President Obama’s State of the Union speech on 1/28/2014, the process has officially begun.
As AGXIIK warned, Please realize that this is 100% about funding $1.5 TRILLION annual deficits using Americans’ retirement funds, as there is simply no other remaining pool of wealth able to soak up $1.5 Trillion in T-bills annually.

AGXIIK’s Full MUST READ 2012 Warning on Obama’s Plans to Confiscate 401k’s & IRA’s is below:

gold MSM MopeI’m going to clear the air on this matter.  For over 2 years I’ve been writing about the impending federal takeovers of pension plans.
10 countries in the Europe and South America have engaged in pension theft, conversion or expropriation to fund government operations. 
It is quite likely that we will see more of this theft in 2014, and before the financial crisis is over, probably from the TSP.
The brokerages will be completely compliant with these actions just like the Bail-in provisions signed by the FDIC, FED Bank of Canada and BOE, as was reported here on Silver Doctors in 2013.
Like Detroit with its complete expropriation of the $11,000,000,000 in pension plan funds, the Feds will use the $1.6 trillion in the TSP as they see fit.  They are patterning this on Poland and the NDRP.  Poland recently confiscated 28 billion in Euros to reduce their country debt to 56%  of the GDP.
The government simply took the funds from the private and government pension plans WITHOUT ANY COMPENSATION. 
Surely that could never happen here!

swat milk raidIn his latest must watch video, the Silver Bullet Silver Shield’s Chris Duane examines the likelihood that the government will ever attempt to confiscate silver.
Duane destroys the myth and irrational fears that a door-to-door confiscation of silver is coming, and like The Doc, makes the case that the most likely targets for a Federal confiscation of precious metals would be ETF stockpiles and nationalization of mines.   The real threat of confiscation of your wealth is via inflation, and confiscation of paper retirement funds and vehicles.
Chris Duane’s full analysis on the potential for a national gold & silver confiscation is below:

swat milk raidAndy Hoffman and Jeff Nielson join the SGTReport for an in-depth precious metals and monetary Ponzi update. At the front of mind is the Polish government’s announcement that it has seized 50% of privately-owned pension funds from its citizens to shore up government fiscal shortfalls. It’s a BAIL-IN, though the mockingbird media has refused to cover it. It’s Cyprus Part Deux.
It’s the new trend worldwide, and Andy and Jeff warn you, it’s coming here next.

bankrobberyReuters is reporting that Poland has just nationalized their retirement system via a pension fund “overhaul”, a move Poland claims will reduct is public debt by 8 pct of GDP thanks to the theft of their citizens retirement savings.
The plan calls for private pension funds to be forceably converted to a state guaranteed system, without providing retirement holders ANY COMPENSATION!
The Polish pension funds’ organisation said the changes may be unconstitutional because the government is taking private assets away from them without offering any compensation.

This is coming to a modern Western nation closer to home soon.  Those who bite the bullet and pay the penalty to extricate themselves from retirement positions can prevent a full loss to their retirement savings and wealth should a similar forced pension/401k conversion occur.

ron-paul-dont-steal-government-hates-competitionDon’t say I didn’t warn you about your 401k’s and IRA’s.  Orrin “Magic Underwear” Hatch has introduced legislation to “create a new public retirement plan in which insurance companies pay benefits through annuity contracts”.
Now it’s the Government’s turn to takeover your retirement funding.
Good luck to you all who keep your money in your IRAs.  Don’t cry that you weren’t warned when it happens in totality.

bail-inFor all those savers and investors young enough not to remember the 1971 American film classic, “Dirty Harry,” there is a scene in the beginning of the film in which the protagonist, San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan (played by Clint Eastwood) interrupts an afternoon bank robbery by shooting the three perpetrators as they try to escape.

Harry kills two of the robbers but one wounded bandit lying on the street contemplates picking up his fallen shot gun to shoot Harry. At this juncture, Clint Eastwood levels his .44 magnum hand gun at the wounded robber who is trying to recall if Callahan has fired all the rounds in his revolver. Callahan says, “I know what you’re thinkin’. Did he fire six shots or only five?… You’ve got to ask yourself one question…Do you feel lucky?… Well, do you, punk?

In a complete role reversal of the good guys and the bad guys, the world banking elite has been, for some time now, pointing a great big dangerous gun at the heads of all savers and investors on the planet. The bullets in that gun are each a little different but still extremely deadly. Here is what investors worldwide are facing:

FarageLegendary gold trader Jim Sinclair sent out an email alert to subscribers over the weekend, advising investors that You must now act to exit the system!  Sinclair, who as recently as 2 weeks ago advised those attending his NYC meeting that investors have 2 years to withdraw their IRA and 401k funds from the system, has changed the urgency of his call significantly, stating:
You must exit the system immediately because the Financial Nazis struck in Cyprus and now are moving directly towards you. This is simple fact, which if you ignore will be akin to the rise of the Nazis in Germany for those that knew they should, but never made the decision to leave that system.

Sinclair’s full alert is below:

HindenburgBy AGXIIK:

Obama is on a tear about the ‘size’ of IRA balances.  He says that Americans should not have IRAs beyond a certain limitThese limits would be imposed through changed in the tax codes to impose FAIRNESS in IRA matters.
HERE IS MY PREDICTION:  
Obama will propose bank bail-ins that incorporate a progressive pension plan expropriation based on retirement plan size and income streams.  It will start with the biggest plans, many sitting in offshore accounts.  These mega plans will suffer a large haircut, perhaps starting with 20% and progressing upwards to 50%, depending on how one acquired the wealth or how well connected one is.
Like the well-connected in Cyprus, those who know the haircut is coming can execute plans to remove their IRAs from government seizure.  Those who are not forewarned to this theft will wake up to find their $500,000 IRA  has been halved.
Cue the Hindenburg.

gun sitesBy SD Contributor AGXIIK:

The government says that once the Roth is converted, there are no taxes on withdrawals after that.  Of course, the gummint is great at the big lie.  Anytime in the future the Roth safe harbor could be cancelledAll a president would have to do is pull the NDRP or NDAA trigger, and they own our butts. 

Most people would never even hear of the IRA grabs thus leaving themselves as a convenient target. Those that were smart enough to see this coming would do just what most of us are doing.  Slowly removing the IRA balances, paying the much smaller amounts of taxes and moving on.

There’s a good possibility that the GRA or pension grabs will move up in line of Federal control, thus leaving out the annoying waiting  for revenues and actuarial estimation of when the holder will die, with the estate coughing up half of the balances.
