On June 30, 2022, the Office of the Commissioner of Financial Institutions of Puerto Rico suspended Euro Pacific Bank, which is owned by contrarian investor Peter Schiff.
The agency responsible for this move is also known in Spanish as Oficina del Comisionado de Instituciones Financieras (OCIF). Schiff was adamant about how his bank was not breaking any laws. On July 3, 2022, Schiff tweeted : Despite no evidence of crimes, Puerto Rico regulators closed my bank anyway for net capital issues … As a result accounts are frozen and customers may lose money. According to Kevin Helms of Bitcoin.com , the OCIF announced on June 30 that it issued a “Complaint and Cease and Desist Order” and a “Temporary Order Designating Trustee” against Euro Pacific Intl. Bank Inc.
“The order mandates the suspension of Euro Pacific’s operations … due to its crass noncompliance with the minimum capital requirements,” the OCIF outlined. “Further, the order imposes on Euro Pacific administrative fines totaling $765,000.00 for various violations to the laws and regulations administered by OCIF.” The Puerto Rican regulatory agency stated the following:
“Euro Pacific’s serious insolvency situation constitutes sufficient legal justification for OCIF to undertake the administrative action announced today.”
On its website, Euro Pacific Bank posted this statement: We are complying by pausing transactions until at least July 7, 2022, in order to review their request. Schiff has recently been attempting to sell Euro Pacific Bank. However, the financial commentator claims that OCIF has halted the sale.
“I have a buyer for the bank. But regulators won’t let me sell it,” In a tweet, Schiff asserted that the buyer is “highly qualified” and has vowed to “inject capital far in excess of regulatory minimums.”
Schiff continued: “They want to liquidate it so the media, the IRS, and the J5 can pretend it’s being shut down […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
