I am researching book on federal government deceptions

I am researching for a book on federal government deceptions and how readers can withdraw implied consent from their relationship with the federal government. I am also aware that POTUS has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens for basically anything he deems a reason to make people disappear. If, after reading my book, Americans en mass sever their corporate relationship with the federal government by withdrawing their implied consent, a great deal of federal tax money could be lost to the government; I can only assume that I could become a target for unjust imprisonment. Is there a loophole I cannot see here? If detained, are detainees allowed to speak to an attorney? I don't want to forego publishing this work because of the intimidation and fear factors involved.

I have online access to my employer's corporate bank account

I have online access to my employer's corporate bank account as part of my job. The bank recently required that I provide them with my SS# ***** address, stating that it was now a government requirement, even though the account is not my account. Who gets that information and what do they do with it?

I was stopped today by DHS agents at the Kansas City greyhound

I was stopped today by DHS agents at the Kansas City greyhound station in Downtown and was interrogated on the street. They asked me a lot of questions about what I'm doing there and other personal questions. I'm not citizen, neither a resident of USA, I'm just visiting on a tourist visa and have valid and active Visa status. They also search all my belongings(travel bag and purse without asking my permission). I was disoriented at that moment and didn't know what to do. That's why I'm writing now to you in order to know how to act in situations like that. So here are my 2 questions:- Can DHS make a warrant-less search(please note, it was nowhere close to a border). I believe 4th Amendment does not permit LE to conduct warrant-less search.- Can I use 5th Amendment and decline talking to them?Looking forward to your reply.

We sell products that are always drop shipped from the outside

We sell products that are always drop shipped from the outside manufacturer to the ship to address. I received a letter asking me to sign a "consent to screen or inspect cargo" from the purchasing company. It said: "The Transportation Security Administration has updated its Air Security Program and included a new requirement related to the 9/11 commission Act regarding air cargo screening requirements. Pursuant to TSA regulations published in 49 C.F.R. § 1548.9(b), the new program requires that Indirect Air Carriers obtain a consent to screen for all cargo prior to accepting it for air transportation. The consent may be given via a blanket notification or at the time of acceptance for each shipment. To make things easier for all concerned, TROPICAL WIND CARGO INTERNATIONAL has prepared the attached document that can be completed and scanned or faxed back to us. Document must be reproduced on your company letterhead containing company name, address, and telephone number. To avoid unnecessary delays or routing issues, please complete the following form and return to TROPICAL WIND CARGO INTERNATIONAL as soon as possible."I sent them an email stating "We are not part of the consent to search form. I am surprised the freight forwarder included us in this process attempting to put us into a possible situation where the freight forwarder itself damages the shipment during the inspection. We have never been asked to sign any form similar to this. This is the responsibility of the freight forwarder."They sent the form again back to me to sign. We do not own the product. It was shipped from the manufacturer to the freight forwarder. Who is supposed to sign the consent to screen or inspect cargo forms? The freight forwarder or the purchaser? Neither the manufacturer or ourselves have any ownership and do not want to take on responsibility for possible damage by the freight forwarder.Thanks,Jane

It's a long convoluted story, but I have funds (allegedly)

It's a long convoluted story, but I have funds (allegedly) in Barclay's Bank in London. The banker has secured an Anti-Terrorist certificate to cover the funds. I would like to forward a copy of that to you for review. I have also been requested by the Ntional Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to provide a certificate of origin for the funds before they can be wired out to me by international bank to bank wire transfer. It is a delicate situation right now, as I can't let the banker know that I am checking these things out. I would also like to be able to verify his employment with Barclays. I have his Barclays identification card and his British passport. I have called the bank but they are protective and would not verify anything about anyone's employment there. Is there any way that I can forward the two documents, plus his passport and bank identification for verification? If that is possible, please provide me with an e-mail address to *****@******.***. This request should be reviewed by a 419 fraud expert. My phone number is ***-***-****. My name is***** and I live in Houston, Texas.

I am a F1 student. Right now I have almost $8000 debt from

I am a F1 student. Right now I have almost $8000 debt from couple of credit cards . I am paying as much I can since last 4 years, so that I can pay my debt completely. I never had any late payment issues.I will be graduate within a semester. As far I know , the immigration policy for international student is they have to leave US if they don't able to find a job within three months after graduation. In that case how will I settle my debt, if I have to leave US ? Is their any forgiveness plan for this kind of situation? Is bankruptcy a solution? I hope I will able to find a job and this situation will not happen. As a pre caution I want to know the best option for me to face the worst case scenario. I don't want any harassment to my friends or previous landlords by collection agencies. I appreciate your advise.
