The Obama Regime is nearing the culmination of its push against numerous Swiss banks that have been used by people attempting to shelter their wealth from confiscation by the US federal government.
They’ve already extorted $780 million and the identities of 4,700 account-holders from UBS in 2009. Now they’re close to coercing “cooperation” and reparations from 11 other foreign banks.
You can be assured that, in any other situation, the POTUS and his henchmen in the DOJ forcibly coercing foreign bodies who were operating within the respective laws of their countries to pay the American government 100’s of millions of dollars – probably billions of dollars by the end of this – and divulge confidential information about their clients in violation of the applicable laws of their nations, would be decried by the Liberals and Progressives as examples of “American Imperialism” and the “American Hegemony.”
No such outrage can be reasonably expected from the Leftists when the POTUS and his cabal are ignoring the laws and sovereignty of foreign nations in order to apply American legal jurisdiction in an attempt to seize the assets of alleged tax evaders.
That’s something to remember about America’s domestic enemies; they only get outraged and cry imperialism and/or hegemony when the supposed victims aren’t wealthy and aren’t presumed to be White. It’s all about class warfare and ethnoguiltism with them.
