Now Chase Bank is cancelling accounts for political reasons

Chase Bank has stopped pro-Trump coffee company Covfefe Coffee from using its payment processor service, WePay, for seemingly no legitimate reason.
In an email sent to Covfefe Coffee, Chase Bank claimed that the pro-Trump coffee company, founded in 2018, was using their WePay payment processor “for one or more of the activities prohibited by our Terms of Service,” and that as a result, they would be withdrawing use of the service, with all pending payments cancelled.

Speaking exclusively to National File, a spokesman for Covfefe Coffee noted that the company had been using the payment processor for two years without issue, and the declaration from Chase came completely out of the blue. The spokesman suggested that they were removed for solely political reasons; National File examined the Terms of Service of WePay, and could not find any legitimate reason for to have been removed.

“The social credit system that is talked about in China, which conservatives say one day it’s coming here, no. We already have it,” the spokesman said:

Instead of Republicans focusing on bringing in pro-Democracy Hong Kongers into our country for protection, they should focus on their voters, who pay their salary. How many lives need to be ruined? How many people need to be coerced and threatened with economic devastation until the Ben Shapiros and Mitch McConnells of the world actually do something? It’s like when people say, ‘Well there was some fraud in the election?’ Well, what percentage of fraud is okay? What percentage of cancel culture is okay? What’s it going to take?

If they’re trying to ruin Trump’s life, nothing is safe. No one is coming to save us. We have no representation in government, we have no representation in “muh free market.” We wanted to provide a brand for the people. We have to start our own economy, our own nation. We have to build our own systems.

National File contacted Chase Bank for comment, inquiring as to what specific activities Covfefe Coffee was allegedly engaged in that merited this decision, and whether other conservative companies had been removed from the WePay platform for similar “offenses.” Chase Bank did not respond before the time of publication.

This is not the first time that Covfefe Coffee has been cancelled by major corporations for supporting President Donald Trump. In 2019, the company revealed to National File’s Editor in Chief Tom Pappert that their product had been completely pulled from Amazon after one customer complained about the taste of the coffee. A month prior, Amazon had banned them from advertising on their platform due to using the American flag in their ads.

Covfefe Coffee also stood behind Kyle Rittenhouse, after the competing “conservative” coffee company Black Rifle Coffee condemned the 17-year-old. “For people who have been to war, you would think they would be ready to fight to take our country back,” a company spokesman said. “Apparently making sure the feral mob is satisfied and their corporate orthodoxy is upheld is a far greater virtue to Black Rifle Coffee than courage.”

I have an account there, but I'm going to close it and tell them why.

I've already written asking them to explain why they are cancelling accounts for political reasons.

I will never again in my life use Chase for anything.

I have also written Shopify investor relations:

I am deeply concerned about your cancelling former president Trump's Shopify account.

This is very wrong. Shopify is a business responsible to its shareholders, not a political activism team playing with other people's money.

Please immediately reinstate Trump's Shopify account and issue an apology in public.

What is my alternate to Chase? I have had a credit card with them since around 1989...
Will M&T be sufficient? It's a regional bank.

I don't own any Chase shares directly, but I do own BoA shares. How about we come up with the wording for a shareholder proposal that bans the company from making political based business decisions, and fires any employee that makes one, or even makes a political tweet on the companies account.

I wouldnt close the account, just write to them and never use account. It's not much but they are loosing money on correspondence and 60c every time a card goes out.

I still need to use up a bunch of credit card rewards. Then I will close it. I get offers for a Visa from M&T all the time anyway, usually offering a bonus as well. May as well take the next one.

Gonna do same. Got an account there.

Witch hunt has come to average people now for having political opinion ruling class doesn’t approve of.

Funny story about chase when I bought my home. I was forced to put 40% down because my salary wasn't that high. When I closed, somehow, when I wrote the check, somehow it got deposited in my account instead. So now I had 80% of my home price in my account. I notified them and the girl behind the counter was like "how are you not freaking out right now?". I was like, I have $240k in the bank and the title to the house...I have all the cards. Well, when the "fixed the errror", they deposited another 40% in my account. So, now I had 120% of the purchase price. If you take the money, it's technically illegal. So I just stopped using the account to see how long it would stay there. It took them like 8 months to finally realize what happened and it was probably some computer that did it for them.

Fucking communist sympathizer!

If you bank with JP Morgan, one of the founders of the Federal Reserve, you get what you deserve. Local credit union here, and the bank gets very little use of my money.

One thin I miss in CA was my logix ( formally Lockheed Martin) credit union, hands down best bank I've ever had. If anyone lives near one check them out.

I don't know M&T but I think regional banks and credit unions are fine. They all share an ATM network.

I closed my long time BofA account when I was irritated at The Big Bank Bailout in '08.
They didn't seem to notice.

Still, is a good moral thing to do, and helps liberate us all from over-centralization.

Eventually, problems in Rome created such a flood of pamphlets calling for revolution that Augustus felt he had no option but to extend the law of treason to cover written works. So books could now be destroyed, but no death penalty was involved. When Labienus, a fierce critic of Augustus, his works incinerated, committed suicide, a furious Cassius Severus said they had better burn him too because he knew all of Labienus’s work by heart.

But Rome’s next emperor Tiberius enacted the death penalty. When Cremutius Cordus’s history was burned just because he praised Caesar’s killers and did not respect the emperors enough, Tacitus commented: ‘It did in fact survive and was published. All the more, then, should we mock those dimwits who believe that today’s despotism can erase tomorrow’s memories. On the contrary, repress talent and its influence grows; the only thing that fly-by-night tyrants or suchlike have achieved is ignominy for themselves and glory for their victims.’

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn says major U.S. bank canceled his accounts
'I guess my America First political views don’t align with yours' Flynn wrote on Telegram, after Chase Bank informed him it would cancel his account due to his posing a 'reputational risk' to the company.
