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:

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:

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.

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.
