China’s central bank is now the latest to roll out capital controls
Kit Daniels Infowars.com January 26, 2014
Following a worldwide trend towards capital controls by major banks, the Central Bank of China has now ordered its commercial banks to suspend cash transfers for three days and foreign currency conversions for nine days, starting Jan. 30.

Affecting every commercial bank in China, the ban will stop domestic renminbi transfers from Jan. 30 to Feb. 2 and conversions of renminbi to foreign currency from Jan. 30 to Feb. 7.
Citigroup recently sent the following notice for its customers in China, according to Forbes:
1. Due to the system maintenance of People’s Bank of China, Domestic RMB Fund Transfer through Citibank (China) Online and Citi will be delayed during January 30th 2014, 16:00pm to February 2nd 2014, 18:30pm. As to the fund availability at the receiving bank, it depends on the processing requirements and turnaround time of the receiving bank. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
2. During Spring Festival, Foreign Currency Transfer Transaction through Citibank (China) Online and Citi Mobile will be temporally not available from January 30, 2014 18:00pm to February 7, 2014 09:00am. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
If you are calling from other parts of the world, please reach us at 86-20-38801267 for banking services or 86-21-38969500 for credit card services.
Despite the official reason, it is highly unlikely that the central bank would schedule maintenance during a peak period for Chinese banks, the week-long Lunar New Year holiday, which begins on Jan. 31.
China is rather implementing capitol controls by stealth, following a recent pattern by other financial institutions worldwide to prevent customers from withdrawing and transferring funds.
Recently, British multinational bank HSBC prevented its customers from withdrawing large amounts of cash from their accounts without a specific reason.

Dan Bubalo says he was told of deployment by source close to Ft. Hood

Venture capitalist Dan Bubalo claims he was told by a source close to Ft. Hood that US troops have been ordered to deploy to Syria.
Writing for conservative columnist Mychal Massie’s website, Bubalo cites a “close and verifiable source” who told him that a friend at Ft. Hood had received news that he was to be sent to Egypt for the next nine months.
“This particular soldier said that while he was not really thrilled about the assignment to Egypt, it was better than the soldiers that remained at the military base BECAUSE THEY HAD JUST RECEIVED THEIR DEPLOYMENT ORDERS TO GO TO SYRIA,” writes Bubalo.
Noting that the development was “extremely troubling,” Bubalo added that it, “contradicts the posturing and false reassurances and table-pounding of Obama and Kerry.”
Bubalo claims the information was “sourced thoroughly,” but he received flak from some of the respondents in the comments below his article.
“I’m currently deployed and this article made me laugh,” wrote one respondent who claimed to be a Sergeant.
However, another alleged active duty soldier shot back, “It’s truth, a few of my fellow soldiers left last week…others are setting up to go this weekend.”
Dan Bubalo is a former brokerage firm owner and currently a venture capitalist and financial advisor on mergers and acquisitions. He has appeared as a guest on mainstream networks such as CNBC.
The White House has repeatedly insisted that there will be no “boots on the ground” in Syria, although Secretary of State John Kerry said he didn’t want to take the option off the table during testimony at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week.
In addition to CIA training of Syrian rebels which is already taking place in Jordan, the Obama administration is considering a new proposal to use the US military to train the opposition militants, despite their close links with terrorist groups like Jabhat al-Nusra.
