(Natural News) For more than a year ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, the Left-wing Nazis who run the social media behemoths deplatformed one conservative, Right-leaning voice after another in what was obviously a concerted attempt to censor any and all dissent to Democratic candidates and their socialist policies.
Though financial institutions and online advertising firms came late to the censorship party, they eventually joined with the tech giants in deplatforming or downgrading powerful pro-liberty voices like Alex Jones and Mike Adams, as well as a number of influential right-leaning sites like The Western Journal, Natural News, The National Sentinel, and others.
While the 2018 midterms are behind us, they did usher in Democratic control of the House while Republican gains in the Senate were likely limited. Now, the censorship-and-deplatforming operations are beginning again as we head into the 2020 election cycle.
As reported by The Gateway Pundit, another site that was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and others, Chase Bank, a major financial institution in the U.S., shuttered the account last week of a very vocal, pro-POTUS Donald Trump supporter and U.S. Army veteran Joe “Rambo” Biggs, which he announced via Twitter.
Chase bank just closed out my account!

“I got an email saying my account was closed. I drove [to] the local store front and the lady says she can’t see why but I’m not [sic] longer allowed to use them and the reason is being sent by mail,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

“We bank with @Chase and even with a power of attorney they wouldn’t let my wife sign a document for me. They said we don’t know if he really signed this form. That is what the notary stamp is for, needless to say we zeroed out that account and moved all of our money to US Bank,” he added.

The censorship and deplatforming is out of control: Where is Congress?
In an interview with The Gateway Pundit, Biggs said he had an account with Chase for nearly 20 years — since 2000.
Biggs posted a screenshot of an email that Chase sent him, stating tersely, “Dear Joseph R. Biggs, Your account…was permanently closed on 02/03/19 as we explained in your most recent statement.”
The combat vet says he wasn’t warned ahead of time. He said that his Army retirement pay was always deposited into Chase. (Related: 2018 will be remembered as the year of Big Tech censorship of conservatives.)
The Gateway Pundit further reported:
Joe Biggs is a huge supporter of the 2nd Amendment and also makes documentary films focused on the border crisis but he says YouTube has taken down most of his videos and demonetized his channel.
Tyranny from big tech and big banks in the U.S. is reminiscent of the ‘social credit score’ in China which is used to silence and control the population.
Last week, Big League Politics reported that Chase Bank also shuttered the account of Enrique Tarrio, a leader of the pro-Trump patriot group Proud Boys, which the Left has inappropriately and inaccurately labeled a white nationalist organization.
“How is the U.S. any different from a Communist nation if Americans live in fear that if they dare express their political views they will be unable to use various financial services that are essential to living in a modern society?” TGP noted, asking, “Where the hell is Congress?”
That’s a great point. There should have been an investigation launched into this problem months ago, either by the Legislative Branch or by a federal agency concerned with antitrust violations.
Conservatives aren’t much for big government probes but if ever there needed to be some congressional and federal oversight, it’s now. Maybe it’s time the president declared another national emergency: Big Tech censorship is real and it’s a constitutional crisis.
