The Secret Service is the federal law enforcement agency under the Department of Homeland Security in charge of protecting our most valuable possession: The mighty dollar.
Without our coins and bills, we go back to the barter age. Nothing is more important to our national security than chasing the new and improved version of Frank Abagnale.
Countries don't need to drop a nuclear bomb to destroy a country anymore. They don't want to destroy all that extremely valuable infrastructure and they don't want to spend any money and time rebuilding it either.
What they want is to destroy the people currently living in an enemy state and leave the entire infrastructure pristine.
This is better explained in the Resident Evil films where the evil Umbrella Corporation wants to destroy their corporate enemies releasing a deadly virus to infect and kill all the employees currently working for its competition.
As you probably already know, the problem with biological warfare is that you cannot order the viruses to stay outside the United States of America.
This is better explained in the Planet of the Apes films.
Economic warfare is the way to go. You don't destroy the infrastructure and you don't accidentally kill yourself and take the rest of the world with you like Captain Trips.
Every traditional enemy of the United States of America has been building superdollars for decades.
A superdollar is a perfect copy of a real dollar and nobody can tell the difference, not even a currency expert.
According to Hollywood, traditional enemy states like Russia, Germany, and China have been using the mafia to smuggle and distribute fake dollars into the United States of America and systematically replace them with real dollars for decades.
These real dollars are deposited in a regular bank account and the money is eventually used to acquire a large company within the United States of America like Smithfield Foods, a meat processing company with facilities in 26 States.
As you can see, if the Secret Service stops chasing the counterfeiters then you will eventually work for Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, or Libya.
Their plan is extremely simple. They want to acquire Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) and McDonald's. (NYSE: MCD) and feed their entire population for the rest of their lives with the dividends.
Not a bad plan if you use real dollars to acquire the shares.
If you wish to serve your country then you can join the Secret Service.
Not all wars are about tanks, RPGs, and grenades.
A shipment with a billion dollars in fake bills arriving within the United States of America is far more dangerous than a traditional shipment of heroin or cocaine.

There is a new kind of war between the United States of America and other countries, criminal enterprises, and terrorist organizations. These enemies print the fake bills and the United States of America try to catch them and destroy them before they exchange the fake bills with real bills.
All the developed countries have been replacing their old fashioned bills with a very small number of security measures with better designs with more security measures but the counterfeiters simply adapt.
Many fugitives are buying bus and train tickets and paying with cash. Let's force all the transportation companies to collect their money with a debit card or a check.It's not that complicated to protect a whole nation.
I think it's time to phase off the $100 dollar bill. You won't stop the bad guys currently moving billions of dollars from one warehouse to another warehouse, but at least you would make them work twice as hard and that means they need to hire twice as many people or waste twice the amount of time.
If their margins go down or you slow them down then that's a victory.
Here are some films about counterfeiters, fake bills, and the gangsters exchanging them for real bills.
Milton C. Burrow and William L. Manger were nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing category for their hard work in this film.Donald O. Mitchell, Kevin O'Connell, Greg P. Russell, and Keith A. Wester were nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Sound category for their hard work in this film as well.
This film was produced with a modest budget of $30 million and it was a huge commercial hit with global ticket sales of more than $134 million.
Black rain is how many people in Japan refer to the nuclear fallout left by the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki back in 1945.
Most people in Japan still living at the time lost relatives or companies or all their possessions and they hate the United States of America and they planned their respective revenge very carefully.
If you study Japanese history then you will realize most of the very successful and extremely profitable Japanese companies were founded after 1945.
These people died eventually and their dreams of revenge died with them but not without turning the weak and poor nation of Japan into the fourth largest economy in the entire world by PPP behind China, the United States of America, and India first.
There were many innovative plans to destroy the United States of America back then.
This film is focused on the simple but extremely effective long term plan of manufacturing fake dollar bills and use them to buy whatever they need to expand their already massive criminal empire.
This film is not about the Japanese government planning some sort of retaliation against the United States of America for the nuclear attacks.
In Japan, revenge is sometimes carefully planned by a very powerful and wealthy individual like the Oyabun in charge of a crime syndicate like in this film and sometimes it can be planned by a single individual like Yuta Tabuse who was born in Yokohama and when he was still a student at Noshiro Technical High School he was so blinded by his hate against the United States of America that he simply imagined in his own mind that all the other high school basketball students were born and raised in the United States of America and he actually won every game the whole time he was a student there with the exception of one game.
Needless to say, they became the national champions.
These impressive results allowed him to play college basketball for the Brigham Young University–Hawaii in the United States of America.
I don't need to tell you that the best basketball coaches in the entire world are located in the United States of America.
Eventually, Yuta Tabuse became the first Japanese to join the NBA back in 2004.
This film is about the Yakuza planning its own vendetta against the United States of America and perhaps the rest of the allies.
You are supposed to take as much money as you possibly can from the United States of America using all your economic resources and skills.
Most drug dealers born outside the United States of America want to import cocaine or heroin to New York City because they want to be wealthier than Elon Musk.
Not the Yakuza.
They simply want to compete against the real life version of Walter White and eventually put him out of business.
This is why is always a good long-term strategy for the DEA to join forces with the Yakuza. They both share the same enemies.
Why smuggle heroin and cocaine into New York City to make a few bucks when you can manufacture your own plates and make an unlimited amount of dollars?
Selling heroin and cocaine seems like a lot of hard work. You have to plant the coca leaves and the opium flowers and wait for a while, harvest them, process them and export them to Europe or wherever the buyers are located.
Also like all the businesses, you have a lot of operational expenses like hiring sicarios, mules, cannibals, and crooked cops.
Buying an abandoned warehouse and use an old printer to print unlimited amounts of cash day and night seems a lot easier.
According to the plot of this film anyway.
It is difficult to fight the criminals when the bad guys have literally unlimited amounts of cash at their disposal.
I used to believe the Yakuza was just a bunch of common thieves and serial killers robbing banks and murdering waiters if the sushi bar owner refused to pay the monthly tribute.
I was only 15 years old when I watched this film directed by Ridley Scott. I now know the Yakuza is as powerful and wealthy as any Forbes 2000 company. Crime has evolved in recent years.
This action thriller film was released back in 1989 by Paramount Pictures, a Viacom (NYSE: VIA) subsidiary.

The film is a remake of the 2008 Icelandic film Reykjavík-Rotterdam.
Fake dollars are being printed in Panama and they are being transported to the United States of America by sea using a regular cargo ship.
As you probably already know, it is logistically impossible to open and check every container being shipped into the United States of America from Panama and the counterfeiters know it.
Clearly, the Secret Service needs to increase its annual budget from $2.8 billion to at least $5.6 billion and hire a lot of part-time cargo inspectors.
To reduce costs, they can be reimbursed by the DEA or the ATF if they find drugs or guns which can be sold at auction legally later to Efraim Diveroli, David Packouz or any other experienced gun dealer recently released from prison.
I hope Universal Pictures is currently developing a sequel with a bigger budget of at least $45 million starring two-time Academy Award Denzel Washington and two-time Golden Globe winner Will Ferrell.
This American crime thriller film was released back in 2012 by Universal Pictures, a Comcast (NYSE: CMCSK, CMCSA) subsidiary.
Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker star in this American martial arts buddy cop action comedy film produced by Arthur Sarkissian with a budget of $90 million.
This sequel was a huge financial hit with global ticket sales of more than $347 million.
Enough cash to make a second sequel six years later with a bigger budget of $140 million.
The Chinese triads are printing superdollars and they are in cahoots with a billionaire casino owner.
The plan is simple.
A lot of Chinese "tourists" are gambling on the casinos and losing on purpose $100 million dollars which are entered into the ledgers as profits and they eventually send this money back to the "shareholders" which is obviously the Chinese triads themselves.
A very clever plan.
I think the Secret Service should protect the entire global financial system with a new law that says that you cannot simply arrive at a casino with a suspicious briefcase filled with a million bucks and gamble.
Let's cap that at $20,000 per year per person using biometric systems to positively identify the gambler buying the chips.
I realize this may be an inconvenience for some millionaires blowing some steam on the weekends in Las Vegas but if inflation spirals out of control because one or more criminal enterprises are entering billions of fake dollars into the regular banks using casinos, everybody loses.
They can still write a check for ten million to the casino and eventually lose it all, though.
Only purchases made with cash will be monitored and possibly restricted.
This film was released back in 2001 by New Line Cinema, an AT&T (NYSE: T) subsidiary.
You can stream this film right now if you happen to live in Japan and you are a Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) subscriber.
