Wall Street Banks Freeze Political Donations After Capitol Hill Riots, Threaten Pro-Trump Politicians with Blacklisting


Wall Street is slamming the lid shut on the coffers of its corporate political action committees and threatening pro-Trump politicians on Capitol Hill with blacklisting.

Following a week in which major social media companies cut of President Donald Trump and began excluding some of his biggest advocates in the wake of the Capitol Hill riot, some of the nation’s largest financial institutions have announced that they are halting donations to their political action committees and considering permanently cutting off politicians accused of attempting to “overturn” the 2020 election.

J.P. Morgan Chase, the nation’s biggest bank by assets and market capitalization, said it is halting donations through its PAC for six months. Citigroup, the third-largest U.S. bank by assets, is reportedly pressing pause on political donations for the first quarter of 2020.

Goldman Sachs put the kibosh on donations pending a review of “how people acted during this period,” according to the New York Times, with the likely result that it will exclude Republican politicians who challenged the 2020 election results. Morgan Stanley also said it is stopping political contributions. It is considering withdrawing support for any politicians who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s electoral college win.

Bank of American and Wells Fargo are still considering their response but are likely to follow the path chosen by their competitors.

Typically, bank contributions to political action committees and politicians are considered by the Americana public some of the worst intersections of money and politics. The current situation has given the banks a rare opportunity to pose as do-gooders, even while implicitly pressuring politicians to win back their favor by adopting pro-Wall Street stances.

Corporate America is also freezing donations. So far, Marriott, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Boston Scientific have said they will close their political purse strings.

The reaction to the Capitol Hill riot by supporters of President Trump stands in stark contrast to the response of banks and corporations to the Black Lives Matter anti-police riots and protests of last year. In response to those events, corporations pledged over a billion in support of Black Lives Matter and related causes.

It's not too smart to piss off over 70 million people.

These PACs are indicating they will no longer need to buy influence from Republican lawmakers. This is not a good sign. This means the big banks are counting on 4 new Democrat senators and a packed Supreme Court and they will lobby like motherfuckers to that end.

ban of flights is next, all sorts of corperations caving, forbes saying they will
go after anyone who hires an ex trumper

as far as angering 76 million people? What do you mean it's not smart?
What are we/they going to do? NOTHING. total beveryly hillbillies atthe capitol
200,000 didn't do anything.

AND if they had the military would have smoked them all, schumer would have
died with his viagra heart attack and we would have seen his profile on fifty cent pieces
for the next two weeks or however long our currency is valid.

All we can do is fend off infantry. But until the military is on our side we just sit here and take it.

Pretty much. Citizens with guns might go down fighting, but vs. the military they will go down.

Shit take, Coonyon. Goat humping primitives in Trashcanistan are doing just fine against our military. We've been there for 20 years and haven't accomplished a fucking thing.

Zipperheads in Vietnam fucked our shit up, too.

And that's why I don't think they would ever have the guts to do the job properly in a civil war scenario against Antifa.

Originally I was going to go all piss and moan about this but then if you really put pen to paper....

The Iran hostage shit was a clusterfuck.
911 happened and we went and got the wrong guy and killed the shit out of the wrong people and completely destabilized the middleast.
Jessica lynch got captured and we all shit our EZ chairs
We invade Grenada so Clint Eastwood could make a movie.

At least you have that. Clint doesn't make bad movies.

Otherwise America's futility in combat makes the Chicago Cubs' World Series drought look like an ongoing dynasty.

Correct that to American politicians' unwillingness to win a war and I'll sign it. Nobody wins in a protracted conflict except members of Congress and that is the crystalline truth.

Add to that American military ‘leadership’ and in line with the baseball analogy you’ve gone yard. Endless war suits them just fine, keeps the big $ rolling in, and when they retire they make real money as consultants and analysts walking over the bodies of the dead and broken families destroyed by endless deployments that are predicated to do nothing but perpetuate the military industrial complex.
