Numerous bank accounts associated with the Florida-based retailer, including the personal accounts of its employees and their families, were closed by Chase without warning and without explanation. Dr. Mercola tweeted the following about what transpired:
"Chase bank has shut down our business bank accounts along with the accounts of my CEO and CFO, as well as their family members (including spouse and child). They've refused to provide any reason for doing so, the oldest account has been active for 18 years."
While Chase is refusing to talk about why it decided to punish Mercola and his businesses and employees, several employees of Mercola Market believe that Chase's decision is politically driven, triggered by Dr. Mercola's dissenting views concerning the public health response to the Fauci Flu.
Mercola Market CFO Amalia Legaspi is one of the victims who is suffering most from Chase's decision, as her bedridden husband with dementia, who currently lives in the Philippines, relies on Legaspi's earnings – earnings that, up until this point, were easily accessible through her now-shuttered Chase account.
The initial story from Chase is that the Mercola-associated accounts had to be closed because of undisclosed "legal reasons." When asked for paperwork, however, Chase failed to provide anything other than silence.
Mercola Market CEO Steven Rye also had his family, including his children, barred from ever holding any Chase bank accounts in the future. Rye has expressed concerns about the direction mainstream banking seems to be taking, following the lead of the Biden regime and Big Tech in censoring, or in this case de-banking, individuals and businesses with opposing political views.
"Rye's concerns add fuel to an emerging debate about the potential role of banking providers as arbiters of public discourse, a problem that will get all the more worse if CBDCs are allowed to proliferate," warns Cindy Harper, writing for Reclaim the Net.

For many years, Dr. Mercola has been leading the fight against the pharmaceutical industry. A licensed physician, Dr. Mercola remains one of the most outspoken opponents to covid tyranny, having written a trove of articles, many of which we cited here, through the plandemic about the pseudoscientific nature of what the government and Big Tech were doing.
That it took this long for JPMorgan Chase to retaliate is a bit surprising, considering Dr. Mercola is a household name among natural healing proponents. At the same time, it is chilling to think that this new precedent is being set for U.S. banks, and one of the largest ones at that, to discriminate against customers based on their political views.
It is hardly a surprise, though, considering JPMorgan Chase's sordid history catering to pedophiles like Jeffrey Epstein, a now-deceased registered sex offender, who used his Chase bank accounts to facilitate child sex trafficking and other evils associated with his infamous "Epstein Island."
The New York Times published a lengthy piece outlining JPMorgan Chase's relationship with Epstein over the years.
"James E. Staley, the former top JPMorgan Chase executive who was closest to the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein at the bank, relied on him for many years as almost something of a personal adviser, a document shows," the Times reported.
"The two men discussed a wide variety of topics in emails, including a potential meeting between Chinese officials and executives of the nation's largest bank, business deals that Mr. Staley was working on, a potential promotion for Mr. Staley and the fallout from the 2008 financial crisis, according to a document the bank prepared shortly after Mr. Epstein's arrest in 2019 on federal sex-trafficking charges."
Documents obtained by the Times show that Staley was unusually and creepily close to Epstein, writing that he "missed" Epstein and wanted to talk to him about "helping his daughter get into graduate school.
In one email, Staley bragged to Epstein about his New Year's Eve plans in 2011, stating:
"I'm here in Brazil with three beautiful women. Have a happy new year."
Staley also corresponded with Epstein about the nature of his sex crimes, writing in another email the following strange and seemingly coded statements:
"Maybe they're tracking u?? That was fun. Say hi to Snow White."
To this, Epstein responded with:
"What character would you like next."
Staley just so happens to be a central figure in two civil lawsuits that were filed last year against JPMorgan Chase about the bank's nearly 15-year business relationship with Epstein.
"The lawsuits contend JPMorgan looked the other way at accusations that Mr. Epstein's was trafficking teen girls and young men, and continued to even when he had to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty in 2008 to a charge of soliciting prostitution from a teenage girl," the Times reported.
JPMorgan Chase is just another globalist-run fiat corporation that aids and abets pedophiles while punishing those trying to do good in the world. Learn more at Globalism.news.
