‘Old Glory Bank’ emerges to protect your money from cancel culture

Comment

We’re all too used to nullifying the culture limiting what we Americans read, see, and are allowed to say in our entertainment, education, and media — but our bank accounts? Aren’t they supposed to be sacrosanct?

In February 2022, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – in an unprecedented action, at least in modern terms – froze the bank accounts of truckers who formed “freedom convoys” to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates. .

They were working class people who were forced to rely on handouts to feed their families.

Could it happen here?

Suppose you own a small meat-packing business and suddenly can’t get the usual loan from your lending institution, who thinks you’re causing global warming?

Or what if you’re in the oil and gas business or, God forbid, the gun industry and you’re considered outlawed in the increasingly ‘woke’ corporate world more progressive of the “Great Reset”?

Or what if you’re just John or Jane Citizen who said something supposedly untoward at a school board meeting, and your bank decides they don’t like you anymore and asking you to take your savings elsewhere?

Fortunately, some conscious people have been working behind the scenes to help alleviate this alarming situation, not to mention the distinctly un-American situation, by creating what they say is a place where patriotic Americans can hide their money without fear of cancellation, regardless of their opinion. : Former glory bank.

It will be a “real” bank, not a “challenger” or a “neo” institution. It will be fully insured by the FDIC.

Among those behind the bank are names familiar to readers of this publication – former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, radio host and former California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder , and country star/entrepreneur John Rich – who joined a number of concerned professionals from the banking industry, as well as Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin (more on her involvement in a moment), to make it happen.

I spoke by phone this week with Rich, who called Old Glory Bank “not just a good idea but a necessary one.”

“When I saw what Trudeau did to the truckers…we’re not far off,” he said, and further felt the idea was “long overdue.”

I also spoke with Eric Ohlhausen, the bank’s chief operating officer, who stated the bank’s core attitude that “financial institutions should never be in the political game” and explained their operations.

Customers of all ideological or religious views and from all walks of life will be welcome at Old Glory Bank without exception, as long as their transactions are legal.

For now, at least, the bank will operate pretty much the way most of us are used to: via a website, a mobile phone app, and an established network of 37,000 (free) ATMs across the country with the usual range of credits. cards, ATM cards, etc.

Nevertheless, there is a physical Old Glory Bank still in operation in Oklahoma, if you wish to visit it, which has been around since the turn of the 20th century, before Oklahoma became a state (hence Fallin’s involvement ). Bank images from this period look like sets from “High Noon” or “Gunsmoke”.

Both Ohlhausen and Rich told me that this was just the start of the new Old Glory Bank. It is expected to expand to include an ever wider range of financial services once established.

This could well include something similar to PayPal. However, unlike the Silicon Valley company, Old Glory would never fine its customers, as PayPal did in a blatant example of cancel culture over the so-called disinformation.

PayPal later admitted its “error” and retracted the policy, but for how long and how? People capable of designing something like this in the first place are capable of a lot.

Old Glory Bank is clearly intended to be a key facility, another front – and particularly important, as it involves our finances, the root of all our activities, and our ability to effect change – in the growing battle to preserve America. which was designed by the Founders.

In this direction, Former Glory Bank joins with select media, educational, entertainment and medical entities to provide alternatives to an increasingly dangerous system.

In my opinion, this is one of the most important initiatives to have been launched in some time.

They plan to roll out slowly and carefully, starting November 17, and aim to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2023.
