Swiss Miss? Does Bachmann know something we don't

She is getting the heck out of dodge and moving to Switerland. Don't let to door hit you on the way out. Funny thing is, with the NDAA, that Army field manual, and the creeping police state, I wonder if she knows something we don't... well not officially supposed to know if you get what I mean.

This is strange

because I got an email from her campaign saying she was redistricted out of her seat and needed money to run for reelection.

Headline "Obama Targets Michele Bachmann"

"A major development has just occurred in my race for the U.S. House of Representatives and I'm asking for your immediate help...

...You see, in retaliation for repeatedly standing up to President Obama on the national stage, liberal judges have redrawn the lines of my Minnesota Congressional District to try and wipe me off of the political map once and for all."

I deleted them with the attitude "Sorry, Honey. If you had supported and endorsed Ron Paul, I'd be supporting you."

I'll bet she knows which Swiss banks don't narc to the IRS

about American citizens' accounts.

Yes they do. The IRS has

Yes they do. The IRS has leaned so heavily on Swiss banks to report on any financial transactions inolving Americans that many Swiss institution no longer accept American citizens as customers.:

Dual Citizenship

FYI - the law doesn't allow dual citizenship, it's basically treason in the ethical sense (in the legal sense, it would require both countries to be at war).

But America is a lot further down the drain then some may think. I'd guess that as many as thirty million people are now dual citizens. There seems to be an extraordinary number of Canadians claiming it. It's likely a problem with Mexico too - look at Romney's father. Some of the recent Muslim terrorists were claiming dual citizenship. One of the biggest movers of Israel First-ers are that they are dual citizens.

God forbid we tolerate this treason anymore. YOU ARE EITHER AN AMERICAN CITIZEN OR NOT. If not, GET OUT and stop bothering our politics.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

On dual citizenship

Wait a minute..you forgot something..Jews are also dual citizens of Israel...Isnt X-VP Dickhead Jewish? He held office while still being a dual citizen.

I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

Wrong. This is an evangelical myth.

Only Jews that apply for Israeli citizenship can become Israelis. Most Jews in the world are American.

She is acquiring the Swiss

She is acquiring the Swiss citizenship by marriage and this is perfectly fine by US law.

She's bailing......

period.

Thanx,

Jason

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

No. Wrong, unethical, and also illegal

No.

1) US law doesn't recognize dual citizenship anymore than you can vote in two different States. If you would use your common sense - if you aren't a dual citizen yourself, than you would see this.

2) Upon becoming a citizen, you have to give up your citizenship. If you voluntary become a citizen of another country you lose your citizenship. The way people have been trying to get around it the last 30 or 40 years is that some countries give you citizenship without you ever accepting it. Ie - you can't lose your citizenship for something forced on you and you didn't want.

3) This isn't that type of citizenship. Her whole family went through the process and filled out the paperwork. It was voluntary and sought out. Furthermore, the law, which yes, isn't being enforced like it should, doesn't require paperwork. If you are voting in a different country and think you are now a citizen of a different country, that can be brought up in court.

4) Bachmann is unlikely to be able to skate around the law like many millions of other traitors are. Yes, we live in a system of lies, with people who take oaths of office and do the other thing, a constitution that isn't agreed to by one set, but God forbid if we start accepting turncoats in our voting process. Our country would cease to exist, and be doing the bidding of another country - that country who has the largest set of traitors here.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

poor switzerland I dont think they deserve that!

...
she obviously does it for tax reasons. but the conspiracy nut in me says she doesnt want to be in America when hell breaks loose. best place to be in this case -> switzerland ^^

Didn't do it for tax reasons

Under the law (and this is unique to the USA) if you are a US citizen you have to pay taxes even if you are living abroad and all of your income is earned abroad.

She doesn't escape taxes by being Swiss.

Now if she were, in the future, to renounce her US citizenship as thousands are actually doing every year - THEN she would owe no more US taxes.

Hmm...

Im pretty sure their is a loophole to this....im thinking on how much time you spend abroad and come home and "visit" for a given amount of time.

"1913 wasn't a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment and the IRS."

RON PAUL 2012!!!

as I understand you need to pay only federal taxes..

whatever that means for her case..

whatever the reason: Its odd!

Carol Paul said at the NV convention: "he fears that something might happen"

Maybe all the rumors off the fema camps etc. are true.. :(

I suppose she had little to

I suppose she had little to lose by leaving and her husband was already a Swiss citizen.

"So, while she's running for President of the United States of America, she was preparing to become a citizen of Switzerland?!?"

My Condolences and Sympathy...

p.s. please do not elect her to public office

"Congresswoman Bachmann’s

"Congresswoman Bachmann’s husband is of Swiss descent, so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978. However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family,” said Bachmann spokesperson Becky Rogness."

IE, they didn't just get citizenship granted on them automatically against their wishes, they filled out paperwork and applied for it.

Under US law, that means you've given up your US citizenship. In fact, that's the law in general everywhere. It's only been recently that globalists have tried to destroy countries by coming up with the term dual citizen, but the law hasn't changed.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Why does she need dual

Why does she need dual citizenship? Why not just a U.S. Passport?

Good Riddance!!!!

Now that she voted our rights away, got her precious bridge, endorsed Romney which paid off her campaign debt, she just isn't retiring, she and her WHOLE family are moving to another country. WOW the s##t mut be really close to hitting the fan. She is really a sell out. She is going to retire with her congressional pension to a NEUTRAL country where they REQUIRE every citizen to own a gun to help defend the country at a moments notice.

Wait, I know, God must have told her husband to tell her it's time to move. What God does her husband talk to? It certainly isn't the same God I talk to. My God wants his children to have choices not slavery! My only consulation is that some day she will have to answer for her actions and I hope I am there to see it.

I wonder who will run in her place? I hope it isn't Hegseth. I wonder if they can move him out of the Senate race and into her spot?
I wouldn't be surprised if they did. The Neocons probably figured out Kurt Bills has become a favorite so they need to place a Neocon somewhere. Hegseth is a CFR member and a warmonger. He is just as disgusting as her! Maybe even more so since he is a veteran and has sold out to our active military and veterans.

As found in my email...

this morning from the Bachmann camp:

"I'm reaching out to you today because I need your support to continue fighting in the U.S. House of Representatives against President Obama's big government agenda.

A major development has just occurred in my race for the U.S. House of Representatives and I'm asking for your immediate help...

...You see, in retaliation for repeatedly standing up to President Obama on the national stage, liberal judges have redrawn the lines of my Minnesota Congressional District to try and wipe me off of the political map once and for all.

Their bias was so obvious they even gerrymandered my home -- where my wonderful husband Marcus and I live –- entirely out of my District and placed it into one held by a six-term Democrat incumbent!

My friend, I want you to know that I am taking every necessary step to fight back against this political attack on my re-election campaign.

So please help my Congressional re-election start off on the right foot by making a commitment to my campaign in the amount of $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35 today.

After all, the outcome of this November's elections will determine whether we imprison our children to a future of massive federal debt, crippling tax rates, unconstitutional mandates like Obamacare, and the building threat of nuclear attack from rogue nations like Iran...

-- OR --

...We rise up to END President Obama's spending spree and RESTORE honor to America's name across the globe.

That's why I decided to sidestep this blatant attack and announced that I will run in the district I've spent my life connected to.

Still, I know the road ahead will not be easy.

As the TEA Party Caucus Chairwoman in the U.S. House and one of President Obama's sharpest critics, the Democrats are licking their chops over Minnesota's new political map and will spend MILLIONS to defeat me.

That's why I need to raise more money than ever to combat their lies and negative attacks in this newly redrawn District.

That's why your contribution in the amount of $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35 today is so important.

I know some of these amounts may be more than you can contribute. But with thousands of new voters to reach and win over before Election Day, I truly need you to be as generous as possible.

My friend, with your prayers and support, I will continue to use my position on the House Finance Committee to lead the charge to repeal Dodd-Frank legislation from around the necks of small bankers and, by extension, job creators.

I will sound the alarm on CNN, Fox News, the networks and other news outlets across the country about President Obama's dangerous foreign policy actions.

And I will keep up the fight to defund and fully repeal the unconstitutional Obamacare mandate before it devastates America's first-rate medical system!

But, in order to continue fighting for you, I first must win re-election in Minnesota's new 6th District. That's why I need your URGENT support today!

You and I must NOT allow the courts to defeat me by moving me out of my District at such a pivotal election.

In fact, to hand the Obama Democrats this victory now would be to destroy all we have built over these last six years.

So before you discard my email, please let me know I can depend on your support today by following this link and making a $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 on up to the federal contribution limit of $2,500 ($5,000 for married couples) to Bachmann for Congress today.

Whether you contribute $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250 or can only make a gift of $100, $50, or $35 at this time, every dollar you send today is absolutely critical as I reach out to thousands of new voters in my District with our constitutional conservative message.

So please contribute a gift of $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70 or $35 without delay.

Thank you for standing with me at this transitional moment in our campaign.

Sincerely,

Michele Bachmann

PS. My friend, the costs are just too great to let a few liberal judges keep us from speaking out for our constitutional conservative principles in Washington. I will fight President Obama and this injustice, but I need your support TODAY!

Please help me run an effective campaign and reach out to my new constituents in Minnesota's reconfigured 6th District with a generous gift of $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or even $2,500 right away. Thank you!"

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war- starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.
-Ron Paul

So, ..just to clarify..

How much do you want us to contribute? Jeez! Its like a radio commercial 'dial 1-800-blah, blah, blah. remember dial 1-800-blah, blah, blah. just call 1-800-blah, blah, blah. That's 1-800-blah, blah, blah.' WE GET IT! But, no you cant have $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1000, or even $2500 right away. Thank you.

You know, if you can't

You know, if you can't legally run for office because you just accepted citizenship in another country along with your husband, this could be viewed as fraud.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I wish most of the current

I wish most of the current establishment politicians would move to different countries also!

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!

A Presidential Run

A presidential run causes soul-searching, I would think.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Did you read the article?

Her husband filed for citizenship, not her. However, as spouse, she gets citizenship automatically, according to that article. As far as if they plan to get the hell out of Dodge, that remains to be seen.
