Wow: Former Brexit Party Leader Nigel
Farage Deplatformed by Entire UK Banking System

Original Article

There will always be an England, goes the saying. But will there? If what’s happening to former party leader and Brexit champion Nigel Farage is any indication, that charming old axiom may have reached its sell-by date. In an editorial entitled “After my banking travails, I fear Britain is lost,” Farage tells a hair-raising tale of institutionalized political bigotry and discrimination. It combines the kind of systemic abuse once associated with Soviet rule but now sadly common in the United States with the sort of social credit tyranny one sees in China. “…We are living through the politicisation of our corporate sector.


Evil (illegitimate children)!!!

It appears Nigel's only alternative is to pay his bills in person with cash. It will be a great personal inconvenience. However, think of the mayhem it will cause the banks to receive a large mortgage payment in cash. Or, a credit card company to process a monthly payment in cash. Are utility companies set up to accept cash payments? Department store credit bureaus? If Nigel plays this right, he could throw mega tons of sand into the Deep State's machines. Their "punishment" of Nigel, could be turned into Farage's Cash Crash of the Financial System.

I wonder how easy it is for someone living in England to have an account with, say, Wells Fargo, or Chase Manhattan, or CitiBank in order to pay his bills in the UK. While stationed there, I still had my bank with the old National Bank Of Fort Sam Houston, but I opened a checking & savings account with Barclays Bank to make it easier to pay my mortgage and other bills in the UK. Come on over, Nigel; we colonials can take care of ya! Right after the 4th of July, no less.

I agree with OP. It is evil. What right has anyone to do this? Too many things in this country as well are no longer right or wrong; it is what can you get away with? It seems as if you can get away with anything any more.

Nigel is a powerful, well connected individual who will, no doubt, have this inequity overturned. But what about ordinary citizens who suffer such an outrage? Like the Canadian woman who gave a donation to truckers, only to have her credit cards lifted by the Canadian government.? Will we in this country be able to safely donate to the Party or candidate of our choice without it surfacing at our mortgage application?

Unbelievable. The banks are happy to serve felons, rapists, and any common criminals all the time. So it's absurd that they would target some person just because of his political beliefs. But if that's the game they want to play, fine. Here is an antidote (just in case any banks here get the same idea). Banks are more vulnerable than they let on to the public. If a particular bank targets you for your political beliefs (or if all of them do, as here) organize a cash run on that bank (or on one particular one) on a particular day. Let's see how they like it when they have to live only on cash (they can't). This kind of political persecution needs to be aggressively nipped in the bud ASAP.

Obviously Mark of the Beast type system (see Revelation 13). Believe it or not, this is what drew me to Jesus. The Peter says that even though he and others were "eye witnesses of His majesty" that we have an even more sure word of prophecy. God has foretold these events in detail in the Bible thousands of years ago. Ought to make us want to check it out. It did me. By the way, the Bible foretells a coming wholesale slaughter of Christians by this evil system, but Jesus said even though they will kill some of you there "shall not an hair of your head perish." Definitely need to check this out.

#9, I remember as a young person learning about the end times but it seemed like a fable and unlikely to happen in my lifetime. Now, it’s pretty clear that’s exactly what is happening. If you are familiar with the end times as predicted in the Bible, there is no doubt we are moving quite rapidly in that direction. It’s interesting to see it unfold but at the same time, it is very scary because of what I know is to come. Thankfully, our hope is in Jesus who sacrificed himself on Calvary and rose from the dead so that all who believe He is who He said He was will have a home with Him for eternity. Honestly, I am so conflicted. My flesh wants to fix this but my soul understands that God is in control.

The global revolution between good and evil worsens to be sure. The end times as #11 suggests? Yes, it sure looks like it. And don't expect God to jump in and suddenly fix things. We must seek Him and His love for us first. Meanwhile, what happens next in this world? You will see.

#18, I think the analogous comparison of “vile practice” was between the dastardly behavior of Schiff lying in Congress & the liar who lied about Farage in Parliament - not a criticism of the censure of Schiff. FTA: “ To cite another American version of this vile practice, the U.S. House of Representatives recently censured Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for, among other slanders, lending “credibility to the Steele dossier — a collection of debunked collusion accusations funded by President Trump’s political rivals — by reading false Steele allegations into the Congressional Record” back in 2017.”

On this (Western) side of The Pond, I keep hearing bits about a proposed 'Digital Dollar', the tone of the reports is that the Government intends to do away with paper currency and go all-electronic.... and which will provide the Government full knowledge of Every transaction and will enable Full Government Control of Every Account. I don't think this will happen, but we may be wise to keep a sharp -and skeptical- eye on this.

It’s clear to anyone who is paying attention that the Biden administration is actively trying to cover up the truth regarding the cocaine that was found in the White House. Not only has the story as to where the cocaine was found changed multiple times, but the administration also curiously refuses to explicitly deny that the cocaine belonged to a Biden family member and hasn’t committed to fully prosecuting the responsible party. Meanwhile, the White House is aggressively setting expectations really low as to whether the culprit will ever be found and blasting the media for questioning

On Thursday, Hogg tweeted about how nobody needed a magazine that holds more than ten rounds. How does he know? Well, according to him, he has "pretty tight grouping" at 20 yards with a rifle. "If you need more than 10 rounds to hit something you need more range time or you need glasses, not a larger magazine. Hell, if you're that bad of a shot you're safer with a baseball bat

They’ll use smears, lies, gross exaggerations, and false and hysterical charges of wrongdoing to force conservative justices off the court. Do you think it’s a coincidence that these attacks on Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Amy Coney Barrett are occurring when a Democratic president is in office?

Stein’s Law holds that “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” The late Herbert Stein made the observation about economic trends, but his axiom perfectly describes Joe Biden’s shaky dance with political death. The president is trying to navigate a narrow path between two potential disasters. Each one could prove fatal to his tenure, but if the twain shall meet, he doesn’t have a prayer. And it’s a near certainty they will meet because the facts we already know are overwhelmingly stacked against him and more damaging information is coming soon. One track of his predicament stems from general public unhappiness with his performance.

Major legal rulings that dismantled the use of race in college admissions, undermined protections for LGBTQ people and tossed out President Joe Biden’s student debt relief program marked the end of a Supreme Court term in which the conservative supermajority continued to exert its dominance. The majority also doubled down on a controversial legal theory that limits the power of federal agencies to take unilateral action. Meanwhile, the justices rejected a far-fetched argument that would have limited the role of state courts in election disputes and turned away an aggressive attempt to challenge Biden administration immigration policy – both areas in which lawyers on the right might have overreached in their arguments.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was slammed for bowing multiple times when she met with China's vice premier He Lifeng, as some critics say the protocol error is a sign of American weakness. Yellen, who served as chair of the Federal Reserve before becoming Joe Biden's top financial official, wrapped up her first visit to China as treasury secretary on Sunday. Moments after bowing at least three times, Yellen then stumbled over He's name, calling him 'Vice Premier Hu.' Both Washington and Beijing said the meetings during her four-day trip were fruitful, although the visit - designed to help smooth a rocky relationship - did not generate any concrete agreements.
