SOCIAL SECURITY PONZI SCHEME
Social Security is neither social nor secure. It's not social because it is compulsory and it's not secure because it is not social. Yet they call it Social Security.
Social security is nothing more than the young paying for the old, their wages garnered by theft. The Law is -- Thou shall not steal -- but that does not apply to the Federal Government. Social Security is the world's biggest Ponzi Scheme and as with all Ponzi Schemes, it will ultimately collapse. Started as a "something for nothing" political idea in 1934, the first few million essentially reaped the benefits without paying essentially anything into the system. My grandfather was one of those. He paid in for a few months and then received payments for at least a decade. Decades later, both employers and companies have paid and paid with no guarantee of ever receiving any benefits. Those who died before 62 certainly received nothing. The benefits of socialism -- promises, promises. Ironically now it is referred to as a "Federal Benefit Payment".
The best book on this subject is, "The Social Security Swindle" by Irwin Schiff (1984). It needs to be mentioned that Irwin Schiff, 87, died in Federal Prison in Ft. Worth Texas on October 16, 2015. He was blind and chained to his bed. This is the treatment political prisoners receive for writing books and telling the truth. Schiff's book did not mention the seminal case of Flemming v. Nestor, 363 US 603 (1960).
Flemming v. Nestor, 363 U.S. 603 (1960), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court upheld the constitutionality of Section 1104 of the 1935 Social Security Act. In this Section, Congress reserved to itself the power to amend and revise the schedule of benefits. You have no rights to Social Security whether you know it or not. You are only entitled to what Congress on any particular day says what you should receive.
I predict that ultimately in an attempt to prevent a financial collapse, that the government will just reduce Social Security benefits, possibly to zero, as what are old people going to do about it.
Flemming v. Nestor 363 U.S. 603 (1960)
Ephram Nestor challenged Section 1104 of the Social Security Act after he was denied Social Security payments as a deported member of the Communist Party. He argued that a contract existed between himself and the United States government, since he had paid into the system for 19 years.
Nestor, an alien, became eligible for Social Security payments in 1955. In July 1956 he was deported for having been a member of the Communist Party from 1933 to 1939. Section 202(n) of the Social Security Act provided for the termination of Social Security payments when an alien is deported for being a member of the Communist Party.
The Court ruled that no such contract exists and that there is no contractual right to receive Social Security payments. Payments due under Social Security are not “property” rights and are not protected by the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment. The interest of a beneficiary of Social Security is protected only by the Due Process Clause. I guess your salary is not your property either yet the government steals it.
Under Due Process Clause analysis, government action is valid unless it is patently arbitrary and utterly lacking in rational justification. This provision of §202(n) is not irrational; it could have been justified by the desire to increase the purchasing power of those living in America because those living abroad would not spend their payments here.

Social Security Numbers
Another great government lie is that there exists a thing called Social Security Numbers. So-called numbers typically have the form of 123-45-6789, an allegedly a 9 digit number. Nothing could be more false. Can you add or subtract two Social Security Numbers (SSN) together? How about multiplying or dividing? Now if you are really good, take the square root of "your" or anyone else's number and tell me what you get?
If you "have" a Social Security number, please tell me where it is located, how much it weighs, what color and size it is etc. How hoodwinked can the American people be? No, you don't have a number the government has millions of identifiers.
The SSN is not a number but an identifier, pure and simple. It is your alter ego. Now the IRS uses the phrase "Taxpayer Identification Number" well at least they are starting to tell the truth as there is no social nor security involved. Social Security Cards till 1972 had the phrase "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" well that has all changed now. George Orwell said that big brother is watching you and the main microscope in this effort is the Social Security Number.
The first Social Security cards were issued starting in 1936, they did not have this legend. Beginning with the sixth design version of the card, issued starting in 1946, SSA added a legend to the bottom of the card reading "FOR SOCIAL SECURITY PURPOSES -- NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION." This legend was removed as part of the design changes for the 18th version of the card, issued beginning in 1972. The legend has not been on any new cards issued since 1972. When I was a kid the idea of the Social Security Card or number being used for identification was absolutely unheard of. Well regardless of any reports to the contrary, George Orwell is alive and well and BIG BROTHER IS STILL WATCHING YOU.
The United States government has turned the country into a big jail. Read the attached complaint and you will see reality in action. Who said that Franz Kafka was not alive in 2017. Surrealism in action.
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
Francis R. Walker, )
Rex Tillerson, U.S. Secretary of State ) C.A. No. 17-CV-XXX
Director Passport Services, Dept. of State )
AMENDED COMPLAINT IN EQUITY
Summary -- This is an action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1346(a)(2) (Officers of the U.S.); 28 U.S.C. §1361 (Mandamus); 28 U.S.C. §2201-2202(Declaratory and Injunctive Relief) and 8 U.S.C. §1503 (Denial of Rights) which prays that this Court Order the State Department to issue a Passport to the plaintiff as well as other equitable relief.
Plaintiff, Francis R. Walker, is a native-born U.S. Citizen, born on 12 April 1943 (age 74) and resides at XXX Easy Street, Central NC 28311
Rex Tillerson is the U.S. Secretary of State. The State Department has the responsibility to issue U.S. Passports. Karen A. Pizza is the Director of Passport Services of the U.S. Department of State
JURISDICTION AND VENUE
This Court has jurisdiction over this action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1331 (Federal Question); 28 U.S.C. §1361 (Mandamus); 28 U.S.C. §2201-2202 (Declaratory and Injunctive Relief) and 8 U.S.C. §1503 (Denial of Rights)
This Court has authority to issue declaratory and injunctive relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 2201 and 2202.
Venue in this district is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1391(b).
Walker has been issued at least four U.S. Passports in his life with the first one being issued in about May 1967. He presented his birth certificate as part of his passport application as proof of U.S.birth place.
On May 10, 2107, Walker submitted a renewal passport application with a picture, expired passport and fee to the National Passport Center in Sterling, VA via certified mail.
On or about June 10, 2107, Walker received from the National Passport Center a letter asking for certification that no Social Security Number had ever been issued to him. Their identifying number is RE: 283315098
Walker signed the statement under penalty of perjury provided by the Passport Agency and mailed it back to them.
On or about 31 July 2017, Walker contacted the Passport Agency Information Center asking why after about 3 months why no passport had been issued. The Center could not tell me and suggested that I write a letter to the Passport Center and have yet to receive a response.
Walker also contacted his congressman, Richard Hudson in an attempt to find out why no passport had been issued.
On or about 14 August 2017, Walker was visited by David Monroe, Special Agent for the U.S. Department of State, and about four County Sheriff’s deputies in unmarked cars. All carrying guns and not smiling. I believe that they came to arrest me. This is the kind of thing that occurred in Stazi East Germany.
Monroe and I had a conversation where Monroe told me that existing State Department records showed that State had a Social Security Identifier for me as 123-45-6789. The four police did not arrest me and quietly left.
Why Monroe decided to drive 160 miles or so when a phone call would have sufficed is a good reason why the State Department budget needs to be reduced to eliminate waste.
At present Walker is not “in custody” nor subject to any criminal restraints. Monroe told me that I did not have any record.
A David A.Pomte (sic) writing for Karen A. Pizza, Director of Passport Services, in a letter dated 25 September 2017 and attached as an exhibit denied my application for a passport.
Pomte’s letter is full of lies. The first lie is that I did not provide my correct Social Security Number. Francis R. Walker was never issued a SSN and Walker has stated that fact at least three times under penalty of perjury.
Walker did not provide any SSN and did not (from Pomte’s letter) “willfully, intentionally negligently or recklessly provides an incorrect or invalid Social Security Number.”
Pomte is a typical bureaucrat, full of power over the lives of others claiming to know the law when in fact he is extremely ignorant. He is the kind of person whom Trump should fire. If Karen A. Pizza knowingly tolerates this kind of incompetence then Pizza should be fired also. Pomte playing God and lacking any real knowledge does not care how his actions affect the lives of others. Why should I not be allowed to visit my sick brother in Spain? Furthermore, what does Social Security have to do with Passports?
Pomtewrote that Walker did not provide “your Social Security Number”. This is another Pomte-State lie. If I “have”, meaning ‘possess’, a Social Security Number, please tell me where it is. Is it in my safe deposit box, on my right arm, hip pocket, left kidney etc. (you get the idea). No, it is the government’s assigned and controlled “number”. I realize that the average person does not ask questions of reality like that. As a lifelong Chemical Engineer just like Galileo and Newton etc. I hope I am able to separate fact from fiction.
The so-called SSN is not a number at all because it does not have the characteristics of numbers. Having studied Advanced Engineering Mathematics I feel qualified to make such a statement. Can you divide say 2.34 or 5.67 into “your” Social SecurityNumber? How about taking the square root of “your “ SSN or adding two “numbers” together and see what you get? The SSN is not a number regardless of what 99.9% of the population believes. This “number” thing is just another government lie.
If Pomte needed a Social Security Identifier, then why did he not get it from EXISTING State Department records? Too easy I guess. It is easier to play dictator and prevent an innocent person from leaving the United States. Do as I say and not as I do. Pomte probably has a diplomatic passport. What a hypocrite he is.
One of the very basic unremunerated rights of a citizen is to be free to leave and renter his country. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rightswas ratified by the U.S. Senate on 8 June 1992. Article 12 of this treaty guarantees the right of a citizen to enter and leave freely.
The privileges and immunities clause of the U.S. Constitution guarantees to Walker the privilege of entering and leaving the U.S.
The Right to Travel is one of the unremunerated rights in the Ninth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Walker has been declared guilty by Act of Attainder of the Executive Branch without trial and is not allowed to leave the United States. Bills of Attainder are violations of Article 1 Section 9 of the United States Constitution.
The United States government has in effect made the United States a prison, albeit a big prison, for those who do not have a passport. One may not leave nor return absent a passport.
PRAYER FOR RELIEF
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays that the Court:
Issue an Order in Mandamus ordering that the U.S. Passport Agency issue a passport to the plaintiff.
Declare that any law which prohibits the issuance or invalidation of a U.S. Passport absent criminal nexus, be declared to be a violation of the privileges clause, Ninth Amendment, a Bill of Attainder in violation of Article 1 Section 9 of the United States Constitution and a violation of The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
Pursuant to 28 U.S. Code § 1746 --
“I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
Executed on 5 October 2017
