We’ve reported over the years how the US government has instituted nefarious capital controls via the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) which makes it very difficult for Americans to open bank accounts outside of the US.  And currently thrown into the Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy Act (DRIVE) act is an inclusion that the US government can revoke your passport if they think you owe more than $50,000 in taxes.

As well, we’ve reported how numerous US international airports have cash-sniffing dogs checking those trying to leave the country with some money.

Meanwhile, in the Presidential debates, the argument appears to be who can build a bigger wall on the Mexican border.  And candidate, Ben Carson, said just this week that he wants US troops to patrol the Canadian border.

Now, the US government has begun to place iris scanners at the Mexican border to check the identity of those leaving the US and going to Mexico.

Starting on December 10, travelers entering the US by foot through the Otay Mesa crossing in San Diego have had to undergo eye scans. Starting in February, foreigners headed to Mexico will also be scanned. It’s a “trial” program that will last for up to six months, according to US Customs and Border Protection.

Examine the situation more closely and  the security measures being passed and implemented are aimed at law-abiding citizens not so-called terrorists.

The endless ratcheting up of security measures is indicative of a failed state, one where representatives and a larger group of shadowy power brokers intend to loot what is left of civil society on the way to recreating new states that are as yet un-looted.

These individuals, mostly found in the banking class, have no allegiance to nations or even individual cultures other than their own. They are like locusts that at certain intervals sweep through the land, justifying their depredation with a variety of false-flag events that prove as illegitimate as their ruinous takings. All that is left is an expanded war. And that will likely come.

The worldwide security state is not so very old at all. The modern passport system is less than 100 years old. The global judicial structure now being erected via various international trade treaties is youngest of all. But all of these quasi-fascist, internationalist facilities  are in the process of being built or expanded.

All it will take is a major national emergency, whether it be war, 9/11 style attack or a complete financial collapse and those trying to exit the US will find the doors closed. They won’t be able to leave. Or not with anything of consequence. No valuables. No assets.
