Do you dare to question the government online? You are more than likely a target of mega bank spying teams. Teams that recent documents reveal actually work with the federal government to target and track those who associate themselves with organizations that oppose big banks and the corrupt establishment. The good news, however, is that by posting these documents in an exclusive article authored by Mikael Thalen and posted up on Infowars and Storyleak, we have now launched a nationwide resistance to what can now be termed mega bank spying.
This is concrete proof that Bank of America is trolling online media to search out "anarchists," "occupy protestors," and anti-tyranny folks like you and I.
Infowars and concrete proof don't belong in the same sentence. I'm not saying what is being reported in the OP is false, but Infowars has embellished things in the past, therefore I'd need additional (and more reliable) sources to corroborate this claim.
But the worst example of government spying may be the web of laws and regulations that require banks to monitor our bank accounts and to share millions of reports about our financial transactions with the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
Money laundering laws were adopted beginning about 30 years ago based on the theory that we could lower crime rates by making it more difficult for crooks to utilize the financial system.
There’s nothing wrong with that approach, at least in theory. But these laws have become very expensive and intrusive, yet they've had no measurable impact on crime rates.
As you might expect, politicians and bureaucrats have decided to double down on failure and they’re making anti-money laundering laws more onerous, imposing ever-higher costs in hopes of having some sort of positive impact. This is bad for banks, bad for the poor, and bad for the economy.
And it’s encouraging banks to treat customers like crap.
