DEBANKING: Chase Bank Says “moral character” a Reason Why They Don’t Do Business w/ “those types ...

Man’s Chase Payment Processing Shut Down, Suspects Political Targeting of Provocative Conservative Merchandising Chase Bank Unable to Produce Reason for Account Termination Chase Corporate Global Media Relations: “Chase is not involved with any like, you know, alt-right people” Other Conservative Voices and Chase Bank Customers Also ‘Debanked’ Recently

UPDATE: Chase Bank Communications Officer Patricia Wexler responded to this report, saying: “We do not close accounts due to political affiliation. Despite what was described in the video, that was NOT someone from Global Corporate Media Relations. As I’m sure you can appreciate, I’m not able to share any personal details on anyone’s individual or business account.”

(Washington DC) Project Veritas has released a video report (the full 10 minute version can be found below) about a man whose Chase bank account was shut down without being given a reason. The report, which includes testimony from Enrique Tarrio, the man whose Chase account was terminated, features undercover video of conversations with bank professionals discussing the account’s closure.

Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe,

“Are there unwritten Chase policies that Mr. Tarrio and others were in breach of? ‘Debanking’ appears to be a new frontier in American politics.”

Insiders can contact Project Veritas here.

Before the account’s termination, Tarrio, whose website sells provocative conservative merchandise, spoke to Chase bank professionals. Tarrio says that phone operators for Chase were unable to explain why his business account was being terminated.

Conversations in various Chase bank offices were recorded and provided to Project Veritas.

Multiple Chase account and bank managers were unable to assist Tarrio, saying that inquiries regarding the closure of his business account would have to be directed to the “executive office.”

Said one of the Chase bankers, Marcel Smith:

“I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed, I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous.”

Chase bank typically gives its customers a reason for account closures, says Smith:

“I’ve never seen them not give a response to someone whose account they had closed.”

An analyst from the Chase executive office, Nora, told Tarrio that his account was being closed for various clerical issues. In a phone conversation with Nora, which was published by Project Veritas, Tarrio clarifies there were no clerical issues.

“The Right Relationship is Everything”

Undercover audio from a conversation with a Chase employee working in Chase Corporate Global Media Relations reveal that Chase bank makes political judgments about their customers.

JOURNALIST: I don’t want to do business with anyone who does business with Steve Bannon, or any of these alt right people, and that’s just one of my prerequisites.

CHASE: Right, right. As far as I’m concerned, we’re not connected with Steve Bannon.

JOURNALIST: Do you have standards in place that would preempt such relationship with anyone, um of Steve Bannon’s –

CHASE: Oh definitely. Definitely, definitely.

JOURNALIST: That’s what I’m calling to inquire about. Tell me more.

CHASE: Right so I mean, Chase is not involved with any like, you know, alt right people or anything. I really can’t name names but it’s basically like we don’t get involved with any of that…

JOURNALIST: … I don’t expect for you guys, I’m not talking about who you guys give money to –

CHASE: No, just any business relationships, period.

JOURNALIST: Really? Okay… So I mean on my end I’m talking about people like Trump supporters for instance. The MAGA, whatever – make, whatever the hell they, those types of people, I mean individuals –

CHASE: Right, right. I know what you mean, but like I said the call is being recorded, monitored, so I can’t get too political. And say I don’t support these people, or this, but you know, any kind of business entity, people like that, no moral character or anything like that, the bank usually doesn’t get involved with that.”

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe believes that transparency could clear up issues like Mr. Tarrio’s. In order to investigate more issues, Project Veritas receives tips from insiders in technology, government, education, and other professional fields here. Full 10-Minute Video:

Too Big To Fail simply means that US money-center banks are part of the deep state.

Chase Bank has no moral character.

I certainly do not get involved with people or businesses who have the morals of alley cats. People like Chase bank, for example.

I say we make them bake the cake!

Wait. This isn’t about politics or art. And they can’t play the “we don’t like his type of business” card. And they are not a bakery.

Hmmm. This looks like a job for the courts.

Ultimately, if conservatives cannot disentangle the Deep State from government, then the only alternative will be to commandeer the Deep State and use it against its enemies like the Left does.

A bank doesn’t want to do business with people who they consider immoral.

Oh my sides.....

“moral character”? Can a cake baker use that argument?

Screw the banks, join a Credit Union. They are owned by the people that belong, not the NWO pukes like the Rothschilds, Warburgs and the Rockefeller clans

There is a practical reason for this crap.Lefties do boycott businesses that show any hint of nonProgressive attachments or thinking. Lefties want to make political statement with every purchase or hire. Conservatives don’t care much about a vendor’s political bent, they just choose products they like at the prices they like. There is no downside for a business to cut off non left-favored individuals and businesses. In a real market based system suppliers and vendors would arise to cater to Conservative consumers as they are cut off from doing business with existing vendors.

The sign in my credit union says No Hats. The few times I go inside, I’m always wearing one and no one bothers me.

Unfortunately, I’m old(er) and surrounded by too many pretend liberals to dare bring in a MAGA hat.

Frankly, hats are not supposed to be worn in public buildings anyway, at least that is how manners used to work. I am still shocked when hats are worn in church. (I am old)

Chase wrote the book on moral depravity.

I have been using a CU for 40 years. It used to be that the low paid tellers were beginners and tended to work there long enough to learn the ropes and get some documented experience then quit to go to “real banks.” As a result mistakes happened but they always got fixed eventually. In the meantme there were/are no fees. In my poverty days hen my account was always very low and I did not keep a minimum I liked that my account did not dribble away in fees and incur more fees as fee withdrawal drained it below zero as had happened when I had my account in a “real” bank. It was more than worth it to put up with the errors. Now the tellers are paid better and stay and the CU retains their developed skills so there are no more errors.
