Thread: Operation Choke Point

  1. #1

    Operation Choke Point

    Have seen quite a few articles on this over the last couple of days. I don't recall if it was ever discussed on the RC. It seems the various industries are being targeted because they are at odds with the current administration. Sure seems like government overreach

    It has already hit gun and ammunition dealers. It has shut down pawnshops and short-term lenders. It has caused banks to discharge potentially thousands from their customer rolls who’ve done nothing illegal or improper. The next casualty will be America’s casino and gaming industry.

    Operation Choke Point is a government program that the U.S. Department of Justice has said was designed to combat fraud in the marketplace, but its impact has been felt among law-abiding, legitimate businesses far more than unscrupulous bad actors. Operation Choke Point is a joint DOJ and FDIC program that allows these federal agencies to intimidate banks and payment processors into ending financial relationships with lawfully operating businesses. The casino industry is the next target.

    The federal government seemingly has endless resources when it comes to things they don't like, such as payday loan companies, but can never find enough resources for things like processing illegal immigration cases and securing the border.

    Bizzaro World.

    Obama has picked his priorities - and is certainly targeting industries that need to be closely watched.

    As for immigration - the GOP gets what it deserves for their stupid and heartless position on the Dream kids - and of course being ass hat political legislative terrorists.

    Nothing like a big FU to the wing nuts on immigration. And after the election Obama will defer prosecuting illegals to further enrage the wing nuts.

    I like this political war stuff.

    I am going to tear down your safe space
    Brick by brick I shall smash it with glee
    You cannot stop me from getting inside
    I am cold and I am hard and my name is 'Reality'

    Nothing like hyperbole to destroy a point.

    Obama is still going to repeatedly kick sand int heir faces over immigration. what is the GOP going to do about it? Shut down the government?
