Congressman Jim Bridenstine Voted “No” on the Continuing Resolution and Extending the Debt Ceiling

bridenstine200300Congressman Jim Bridenstine commented following the vote to pass a Continuing Resolution and extend the Debt Ceiling:“I voted ‘No’ on the bill to raise the debt ceiling without any spending controls and fund the government without providing any relief to millions of Americans being harmed by Obamacare.
“The President’s policy of funding all of the government or none of the government violates the principles of a representative republic and is devastating to a nation historically governed by consensus.  Continuing Resolutions are not the way our system is supposed to work.

Creeping Capital Controls At JPMorgan Chase?

Creeping Capital Controls At JPMorgan Chase?

“For whatever reason, JPM has decided that after November 17, 2013, it will halt the use of international wire transfers (saying it would “cancel any international wire transfers, including recurring ones”), but more importantly, limits the cash activity in associated business accounts to only $50,000 per statement cycle. “Cash activity is the combined total of cash deposits made at branches, night drops and ATMs and cash withdrawals made at branches and ATMs.” Why? “These changes will help us more effectively manage the risks involved with these types of transactions.” So… JPM is now engaged in the risk-management of ATM withdrawals?” Continue reading

Last year her youngest daughter, a dual citizen, had her local brokerage account closed by Deutsche Bank because her mother had signing authority over it. Americans are even being forced out of products that are not subject to FATCA reporting: some have been forced to pay off mortgage balances with Swiss banks, for instance.

The North American Securities Administrators Association said digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, offer consumers another way of paying for goods and services, but they also provide a ‘fertile ground for scam artists to capitalize on … (their) increasing popularity and acceptance.’ The association’s members include state and provincial regulators in the United States, Canada and Mexico.” Continue reading
