Wisconsin Governor: Nullifies Jeff Session’s Asset Forfeiture Rule

MADISON, Wisc. (April 2018) – Yesterday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill into law that reforms the state’s asset forfeiture laws to prohibit the state from taking property without a criminal conviction in most situations. The legislation also takes a small, but important step toward closing a [an unconstitutional] federal loophole that allows police to circumvent strict state forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the feds.

Sen. Dave Craig,  (R-Town of Vernon), along with a bipartisan coalition of 26 legislators, introduced Senate Bill 61 (SB61) last year and it carried over to the 2018 session. The legislation reforms Wisconsin law by requiring a criminal conviction before prosecutors can proceed with asset forfeiture in most situations. It will also raise the evidentiary requirement for forfeiture from a preponderance of evidence to clear and convincing evidence.

The new law requires forfeiture money to primarily go into the state Common School Fund, but allows police to keep up to 50 percent of proceeds “for administrative expenses of seizure, maintenance of custody, advertising and court costs and the costs of investigation and prosecution reasonably incurred.”

The Senate passed SB61 by a 22-10 vote. The Assembly concurred, sending the bill to the governor’s desk. With Gov. Walker’s signature, the law goes into effect April 5.

“Civil asset forfeiture reform is an important step to ensure that no person is, ‘deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law’ as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment,” Craig told the Journal Sentinal last year when the bill was introduced.

 

Passing SB61 also takes a step toward closing a loophole that allows state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws in a vast majority of situations. This is particularly important in light of a new policy directive issued last July by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice (DOJ).

 

FEDERAL LOOPHOLE

A federal program known as “Equitable Sharing” allows prosecutors to bypass more stringent state asset forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the federal government through a process known as adoption.The new DOJ directive reiterates full support for the equitable sharing program, directs federal law enforcement agencies to aggressively utilize it, and sets the stage to expand it in the future.

Law enforcement agencies often bypass more strict state forfeiture laws by claiming cases are federal in nature. Under these arrangements, state officials simply hand cases over to a federal agency, participate in the case, and then receive up to 80 percent of the proceeds. However, when states merely withdraw from participation, the federal directive loses its impact.

Until recently, California faced this situation.The state has some of the strongest state-level restrictions on civil asset forfeiture in the country, but state and local police were circumventing the state process by passing cases to the feds. According to a report by the Institute for Justice, Policing for Profit, California ranked as the worst offender of all states in the country between 2000 and 2013. In other words, California law enforcement was passing off a lot of cases to the feds and collecting the loot. The state closed the loophole in 2016.

To Deceive ~ pick your starting point.

SB61 takes a step toward closing the loophole by reducing the financial incentive. It prohibits law enforcement agencies from collecting equitable funding money unless there is a federal or state criminal conviction on the crime that was the basis for the seizure. Police also have to produce an itemized report on every case transferred to federal jurisdiction.

If there is a federal or state criminal conviction for the crime that was the basis for the seizure, the agency may accept all proceeds. If there is no federal or state criminal conviction, the agency may not accept any proceeds, except that the agency may accept all proceeds if one of the following circumstances applies and is explained in the report submitted under this subsection:

(b) The defendant was deported by the U.S. government.
(c) The defendant has been granted immunity in exchange for testifying or otherwise assisting a law enforcement investigation or prosecution.
(d) The defendant fled the jurisdiction.
(e) The property has been unclaimed for a period of at least 9 months.

President Jefferson

While this provision doesn’t prohibit Wisconsin law enforcement agencies from passing cases to the feds, it reduces the financial incentive to do so. The reporting requirements also make abuses of the system transparent and could create the momentum necessary to completely close the loophole down the road. Passage of SB61 takes a first step toward addressing the loophole.

As the Tenth Amendment Center previously reported the federal government inserted itself into the asset forfeiture debate in California. The feds clearly want the policy to continue.

Why?

We can only guess. But perhaps the feds recognize paying state and local police agencies directly in cash for handling their enforcement would reveal their weakness. After all, the federal government would find it nearly impossible to prosecute its unconstitutional “War on Drugs” without state and local assistance. Asset forfeiture “equitable sharing” provides a pipeline the feds use to incentivize state and local police to serve as de facto arms of the federal government by funneling billions of dollars into their budgets.

And the fastest growing bank asset in 2017 was… SUBPRIME!

Simon Black–They say that goldfish have the shortest memory in the Animal Kingdom… something like 3-seconds.

But it turns out this isn’t actually true.

Researchers at the Israeli Technion Institute of Technology conducted an experiment in 2009 proving that even the tiniest fish could be trained to recall certain sounds after as long as FIVE MONTHS.

According to another study from the University of Chicago, Dolphins ostensibly have the best memories in the Animal Kingdom, and in an experiment were able to recall a distinct whistle after 20 YEARS.

Did you know? You can receive all our actionable articles straight to your email inbox… Click here to signup for our Notes from the Field newsletter.

Then there are bankers… financius dumbassus, a curious species not fully related to the Animal Kingdom, somewhat descended from protozoa, who display truly bizarre behavior when it comes to memory function.

Case in point: Throughout the mid-2000s, bankers engaged in woefully short-sighted, self-destructive behavior by loaning their depositors’ money to risky borrowers who put no money down to buy overpriced houses.

These loans called ‘subprime mortgages’. And before long, some even more self-destructive bankers began packing thousands of these subprime mortgages together into gigantic bonds, which bankers would trade among themselves.

Everybody in the financial system was in on it.

The mortgage brokers raked in huge fees for closing individual loans.

The investment bankers made money packaging the loans into subprime bonds.

And the ratings agencies (like S&P and Moody’s) made money slapping pristine “AAA” ratings on these bonds, essentially promising the world that they were RISK FREE.

Looking back they obviously weren’t risk free.

Banks were making risky loans to borrowers who had a history of not paying their debts based on the premise that home prices only increase in value.

And when home prices started to fall, the entire apparatus collapsed in late 2008.

You’d think that the entire financius dumbassus species would have learned from this experience.

But you would be wrong.

And that’s because financius dumbassus has an incredibly short memory.

Not even a decade after these loans nearly brought down the entire global economy, SUBPRIME IS BACK.

In fact it’s one of the fastest growing investments among banks in the United States.

Over the last twelve months the subprime volume among US banks doubled, and it’s already on pace to double again this year.

Bottom line– financius dumbassus is once again back to its old ways… making risky loans to borrowers with pitiful credit.

What could possibly go wrong?

Leave it to financius dumbassus to try the same thing again and expect a different result. It’s textbook insanity.

Of course, they don’t call it ‘subprime’ anymore. Now it’s called “non-QM”, meaning “non qualified mortgage.”

But it’s exactly the same thing– borrowers who don’t qualify for a conventional loan because of their pitiful credit and inability to make a down payment.

It’s as if they think they’ll be able to avoid the same consequences simply by changing the name. It’s genius!

As a friendly reminder, financius dumbassus isn’t making these suprime/non-QM loans with its own money.

Oh no. They’re making these loans with their depositors’ money. YOUR money.

Washington Passes Bill Nullifying Jeffery Sessions Asinine Asset Forfeiture Laws

OLYMPIA, Wash. (Jan. 29, 2018) –  Last week, a Washington state House committee passed a bill that would improve the state’s asset forfeiture laws and set the stage to close a loophole that allows state and local police to circumvent more strict state forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the feds.

Rep. Matt Shea (R-Spokane Valley) and Rep. Roger Goodman (D-Kirkland) introduced House Bill 2718 (HB2718) on Jan. 12. The legislation would take several steps to reform Washington’s asset forfeiture laws. While the state could still seize assets without a criminal conviction, HB2718 would increase protection for property owners and place the burden of proof squarely on prosecutors.

HB2718 would make several changes to current asset forfeiture law, explicitly providing that the burden of proof is on the seizing agency; allowing prevailing claimants to recover attorneys’ fees, expenses, and damages for loss of use of property; requiring that, when ordered to return property, the seizing agency return it in the same or substantially similar condition as when seized; and making all seizing agencies subject to detailed reporting requirements.

The House Justice Committee approved HB2718 by a 12-1 vote.

The reporting requirements include provisions relating to federal asset forfeiture. This would set the stage to close a loophole that allows state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws in a vast majority of situations. This is particularly important in light of a new policy directive issued last July by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice (DOJ).

A federal program known as “Equitable Sharing” allows prosecutors to bypass more stringent state asset forfeiture laws by passing cases off to the federal government through a process known as adoption.The new DOJ directive reiterates full support for the equitable sharing program, directs federal law enforcement agencies to aggressively utilize it, and sets the stage to expand it in the future.

In other words, California law enforcement was passing off a lot of cases to the feds and collecting the loot. The state closed the loophole in 2016.

Hungary Ousts Rothschild IMF Banks

Including federal forfeitures in the reporting requirements will shed light on equitable sharing and potentially generate the awareness necessary to pressure policymakers into closing the loophole. This could be done by passing legislation prohibiting state and local police from passing cases off to the feds in most situations. We recommend the following language.

  1.  A law enforcement agency or prosecuting authority may not enter into an agreement to transfer or refer seized property to a federal agency directly, indirectly, by adoption, through an intergovernmental joint taskforce or by other means for the purposes of forfeiture litigation and instead must refer the seized property to appropriate local or state prosecuting authorities for forfeiture litigation under this chapter unless the seized property includes U.S. currency in excess of $100,000.
  1. This paragraph preempts laws by township, municipal, county and other governments in the state which regulate civil and criminal forfeiture.

As the Tenth Amendment Center previously reported the federal government inserted itself into the asset forfeiture debate in California. The feds clearly want the policy to continue.

Why?

We can only guess. But perhaps the feds recognize paying state and local police agencies directly in cash for handling their enforcement would reveal their weakness. After all, the federal government would find it nearly impossible to prosecute its unconstitutional “War on Drugs” without state and local assistance. Asset forfeiture “equitable sharing” provides a pipeline the feds use to incentivize state and local police to serve as de facto arms of the federal government by funneling billions of dollars into their budgets.

While HB2718 only makes modest reforms and does not directly address equitable sharing, we view it as a solid foundational step.

WHAT’S NEXT

HB2718 now moves to the House Appropriations Committee where it must pass by a majority vote before moving forward in the legislative process.

CNN’s Clapper Suggests Putin ‘Handling’ Trump Like Intelligence ‘Asset’

So much for CNN’s declaration of “facts first.” The news outlet that pompously calls themselves “the most trusted name in news” threw that out the window on Monday when their national security analyst and Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper suggested that President Trump was being treated like an intelligence asset by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

During Clapper’s appearance on CNN’s The Lead he was asked by Jim Sciutto, another Obama administration flack CNN had on the payroll, about if Trump’s description of Russia and China as rivals and his desire to find collaborative efforts were “a contradictory message.”

Clapper’s response was his wild conspiracy theory about the U.S. President. “Well, it is to me. I think this past weekend is illustrative of what a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the President,” he told Sciutto.

You’re saying that Russia is handling President Trump as an asset,” Sciutto followed up, with the sound of excitement in his voice. “That seems to be — that’s the appearance to me,” Clapper answered before he droned on about the history of U.S.-Russian relations in terms of counter-terrorism operations.

 

 

Sciutto was still fixated on Clapper’s baseless smear and wanted him to talk more about it. “I just want to be clear here though; you’re saying that Russia is treating the president of the United States as an asset?

I’m saying this figuratively,” Clapper claimed, appearing to walk it back. But he immediately began to back up his original assertion by analyzing how Putin interacts with Trump:

I think you have to remember Putin’s background. He’s a KGB officer. That’s what they do. They recruit assets. And I think some of that experience and instincts of Putin has come into play here in his managing of a pretty important account for him, if I could use that term, with our president.

It’s worth noting that Clapper is an intelligence spook just as Putin was. When he was the DNI, he lied in testimony to Congress when he was asked about what he knew regarding the government’s domestic spying program, which collects information from everyone in the U.S. He told Congress he didn’t know anything about such a program. But when the program was later exposed via leaks, he claimed he simply forgot about the program’s existence.

This off-the-wall analysis by CNN came the day after their wannabe media pope, Brian Stelter began his Sunday show, Reliable Sources, by railing against Fox News for being pro-Trump ‘propagandists’ and suggested they’re state media. If they’re going to claim Fox News is saying outrageous things, then they can’t be pushing their own.

JIM SCIUTTO: You heard the President’s speech today, calls out Russia and China, describes them as rival powers – rival powers to the U.S., but also says he wants to build a great partnership with them and had all this friendly stuff to say about his phone calls with Vladimir Putin this week. Is that a contradictory message?

JAMES CLAPPER: Well, it is to me. I think this past weekend is illustrative of what a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the President.

SCIUTTO: You’re saying that Russia is handling President Trump as an asset?

CLAPPER: That seems to be — that’s the appearance to me. So, you know, we’ve shared intelligence with the Russians for a long time. We’ve always done that. Although in my experience with them has been pretty much of a one-way street, where we provide them intelligence and we don’t get much back. And oddly enough, my first exposure to that was in the early ’90s when I served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and we were trying to engage the Russians on all places of North Korea. And didn’t get much back from them.

So, I think what we did is the right thing. Certainly when people’s lives are at risk that we do have a duty to warn. So the intelligence community, CIA did the right thing here and I thought in a rather theatric gesture of a phone call to thank President Trump for something that, kind of, goes on below the radar and is not all that visible.

SCIUTTO: I just want to be clear here though; you’re saying that Russia is treating the president of the United States as an asset?

CLAPPER: I’m saying this figuratively. I think, you have to remember Putin’s background. He’s a KGB officer. That’s what they do. They recruit assets. And I think some of that experience and instincts of Putin has come into play here in his managing of a pretty important account for him, if I could use that term, with our president.

Alabama Police Use Asset Forfeiture to Ruin an Innocent Small Business Owner


A news report from Alabama offers two textbook cases of how sweeping powers of civil asset forfeiture allow police to seize people’s property with near impunity.

Under civil asset forfeiture laws, police can take property suspected of being connected to criminal activity, even if the owner is not charged with a crime. Law enforcement and prosecutors say the practice is a vital tool to disrupt drug trafficking and other organized crime by targeting ill-gotten gains. But in state after state, horror stories have emerged of regular people having their possessions expropriated and their lives turned upside down.

In the Alabama case, around 20 heavily armed officers raided Frank Ranelli’s computer repair shop in Ensley in 2010, on a tip that Ranelli was selling stolen goods. Police seized roughly 130 computers from the shop, most of them belonging to customers.

The Alabama news outlet Al.com reports what happened next:

Nothing ever came of the case. The single charge of receiving stolen goods was dismissed after Ranelli demonstrated that he had followed proper protocol in purchasing the sole laptop computer he was accused of receiving illegally.

Yet none of the property seized by police that summer morning more than seven years ago has been returned to him.

“Here I was, a man, owned this business, been coming to work every day like a good old guy for 23 years, and I show up at work that morning—I was in here doing my books from the day before—and the police just f***ed my life,” he said.

Ranelli has been fighting ever since to get his property back. But at least he got to keep his house. The same story documents the case of Cherie Marceaux, whose boyfriend was arrested in 2005 for selling marijuana to an undercover police officer. A subsequent search of their house turned up more pot. Marceaux pled guilty to possession and received probation, but police weren’t done with her:

Is UK Reading Councillor Rachel Eden a British politician or an Israeli asset?

Gilad Atzmon writes:

It keeps getting better. Rachel Eden, the shameless “Labour” councillor who organised a protest against me without knowing who I am or what I stand for, is on the ultra-Zionist We Believe in Israel list of 216 General Election candidates who have pledged their support for Israel. 

Eden, who is councillor for Whitley ward in Reading, in the UK county of Berkshire, has also been colluding with a discredited Zionist rabbi who was sacked by his own congregation

In the video below, you can see that she doesn’t even recognise me, let alone understand my views.

Along with other Israeli stooges among UK parliamentary candidates, Rachel Eden vowed “to oppose the extremists who challenge Israel’s right to exist”.

Is it really extreme to demand that Israel become a state of its citizens as opposed to a state of the Jews? Our disgraceful “Labour” candidate, Eden, is pledging support for the existence of a state that is defined by race and racial privileges.

Eden further promised “to support the right of people in the United Kingdom to enjoy Israeli culture… without fear of discrimination, boycotts, harassment and/or intimidation”. Yet, Eden is the same wannabe MP who harassed, intimidated and threatened to boycott an arts festival that gave a platform to yours truly, a law-abiding citizen who happens to oppose Israel. I guess that moral integrity is a rare trait within friends of Israel circles.

Eden’s next pledge was “to celebrate the fact that Israel is a free society and parliamentary democracy that extends to all its citizens the right to practice their religion and have access to religious sites in Jerusalem”. 

Eden ought to inform us what she thinks about the status of millions of Palestinians who live in Israeli-controlled territories but lack all rights of citizenship as well as running water and electricity. 

And if Eden genuinely believes in “free societies”, why is she so upset by Reading International Festival providing the elementary freedom to speak?

Eden also promised “to support the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of anti-Semitism”. She must believe that when it comes to racism, anti-Semites form a category of their own. I would actually expect a “Labour” candidate to equally oppose all forms of racism and bigotry.

British people who saw Rachel Eden and her Zombie league performing their collective book burning ritual, should ask themselves: Is Rachel Eden really British parliament material? Or is she more of a candidate for the Israeli Knesset?

Sessions Sees Civil-asset Forfeiture as “Key Tool” for Law Enforcement

During an address to the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Philadelphia on October 23, Attorney General Jeff Sessions (shown) said he has designated the brutal MS-13 gang as a priority for the Justice Department’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces. While conservatives will applaud that effort, a second proposal included in Sessions’ speech will infuriate constitutionalists.

Sessions observed that our state and local partners in law enforcement are our strongest allies, our greatest resources, and that they deserve his department’s support.

If he had ended there, there would have been few problems, but he went on to say:

That’s why, in July, we reinstituted our adoptive sharing program, ensuring that criminals will not be permitted to profit from their crimes. As President Trump knows well, civil asset forfeiture is a key tool that helps law enforcement defund organized crime, take back ill-gotten gains, and prevent new crimes from being committed, and it weakens the criminals and the cartels. In departments across this country, funds that were once used to take lives are now being used to save lives.

Sessions explained that the Justice Department is establishing a department to oversee civil-asset forfeiture in order to “maintain public confidence.” (This sounds more like a public-relations program to diffuse the inevitable objections to civil-asset forfeiture that are likely to arise from people across the political spectrum, from libertarians to constitutionalists to classical liberals.) Sessions stated, “I directed Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to appoint a Director of Asset Forfeiture Accountability to oversee the Department’s asset forfeiture program and ensure no errors or overreach.”

The New American has published two articles this year that included sound arguments that civil-asset forfeiture is in violation of constitutional principles. “Is Tide Turning Against Civil Asset Forfeiture?”(June 2017) cited a highly-respected constitutionalist:

One person particularly aghast at the injustices associated with civil asset forfeiture is U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, who began questioning the legality of civil asset forfeiture in 1993, only two years after he had taken his place on the High Court, in the case of U.S. v. James Daniel Good Real Property. Five years after Good had completed a prison sentence for drug possession, federal marshals seized his home in Hawaii, without any notice or legal proceedings. Thomas opined that he was “disturbed by the breadth of new civil-forfeiture statues,” and he and other justices ruled in favor of Good.

The second article, posted in September, personally addressed the source of today’s discussion on CAF — Attorney General Sessions.

Tech Firms Seek Washington’s Prized Asset: Top-Secret Clearances






Tech Firms Seek Washington’s Prized Asset: Top-Secret Clearances


October 23rd, 2017

Via: Bloomberg:

In doing so, companies such as Facebook Inc. are competing with defense contractors, financial firms and the U.S. government itself. Security clearances are a rare and valued commodity, whether at a bank trying to prevent hackers from stealing credit-card data and emptying accounts or at a manufacturer building parts for a stealth fighter or missile-defense radar system.

Bringing former government cyber warriors on board at companies can facilitate interactions with U.S. agencies like the NSA or CIA as well as help the firms understand how to build stronger systems on their own.

“They have the tradecraft,� said Ronald Sanders, a former associate director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and now director of the school of public affairs at the University of South Florida. “And the trade craft is some of the best in the world.�
