Biden’s ESG: The BlackRock-Davos-UN Agenda Gets Smacked by Congress, States, Markets

Opposition to “woke” ESG corporatism is snowballing, as Joe Biden and Larry Fink found out this past week. Fink is the billionaire CEO of BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with $8 trillion under management. He is also one of Biden’s biggest boosters and the most prominent corporate promoter of ESG, the controversial rating system that is pushing companies to adopt “progressive” Soros-style policies rather than carry out their legal and fiduciary responsibilities to their shareholders. ESG, which stands for Environment, Social, and Governance, is a scheme aimed at pressuring businesses into joining the politically correct stampede on climate change, decarbonization, sustainable development, and so-called social justice and racial justice issues such as gun control, abortion rights, LGBTQ equity, and critical race theory.

Belated Rally Against ESG Juggernaut

Although ESG has only hit the general public’s radar screens in the past year or so, the ESG program, like most globalist intrigues, has been quietly in the works for decades. (We will return to that important history in a moment.) However, with the dangers of ESG now far more readily apparent, opposition is belatedly forming. Congress is stepping into the breach. State legislatures, governors, and attorney generals are also taking action.

On Tuesday, February 28, the U.S. House of Representatives fired the first salvo aimed at nixing the administration’s ESG program for 401(k) retirement investing, as put forward by the Biden Labor Department’s new rule, known as the “Prudence and Loyalty in Selecting Plan Investments and Exercising Shareholder Rights.”  The Labor rule, crafted pursuant to an executive order by President Biden’s “Executive Order on Climate-Related Financial Risk” (EO 14030) of May 20, 2021, was promulgated to undo President Trump’s executive order banning the ESG impositions on pension funds.

Speaking on the House floor on February 28, Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.), the sponsor of the anti-ESG resolution, blasted Democrats for misrepresenting his bill and for failing to protect investors and retirees from the harmful impacts of ESG on their investments. “Nothing in this resolution prohibits an American from allocating their capital from the way they want to,” he noted. But what this resolution will do is stop the Department of Labor from coercing Americans into lower performing, higher fee, less diversified, politicized funds. We must stop the pollicization of allocation of capital…. In 2022, the S&P 500 energy sector ended the year a whopping 59 percent higher than where it started, amid a brutal bear market, in which the S&P 500 overall lost 20 percent! If you’re invested in ESG in 2022, you are a massive loser because you are divested from energy. Stop the pollicization of capital.”

On an almost straight party-line vote, the anti-ESG measure, House Joint Resolution 30, passed by 216 to 204. Representative Jared Golden of Maine was the sole Democrat to join the Republicans on this vote in the House. The following day, March 1, it passed the Senate by a vote of 50 to 46, with Democratic Senators Jon Tester of Montana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia crossing over to vote with the Republicans.

To dump the ESG rule, Republicans utilized the Congressional Review Act, which lets Congress disapprove — by a simple majority vote — a final rule issued by a federal agency if it has not been in effect for more than 60 legislative days. The White House press office says President Biden is preparing to use his veto pen for the first time to cancel this legislation and keep his ESG plan in place.

As we have reported here at The New American (see articles linked below), more than two dozen states are suing the Biden administration over the ESG rule and states are divesting from BlackRock, Vanguard and other asset managers that are pushing ESG.

Long, Dark History of the ESG Stealth Agenda

The foundation for ESG was laid more than 30 years ago by the Business Council for Sustainable Development (BCSD) at the 1992 Earth Summit. For that UN confab in Rio de Janeiro, the BCSD effected a carefully timed release for its book entitled, Changing Course: A Global Perspective on Development and the Environment. Accompanied by the scripted hosannahs of the global press, it introduced much of the world to “responsible investing,” by which was meant a new form of “capitalism” with an enviro-socialist twist.  (For more history on this, see the author’s 1992 book, Global Tyranny, Step by Step: The United Nations and the Emerging New World Order.) The next major step came in 1999, when then UN Secretary-General Kofi Anna went to the World Economic Forum’s annual Davos extravaganza to announce the UN’s Global Compact as a means to promote “responsible business practices and UN values among the global business community.” It claimed the support of thousands of companies, business executives, and “stakeholders” (i.e., paid activists). The following year, 2000, the UN held its Millennium Summit in New York City, which resulted in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs were an attempt to implement piecemeal the UN’s massive, 351-page Agenda 21 – unveiled at the Rio Earth Summit — in a simplified, digestible program of 8 goals, 18 targets and 48 indicators. More woke corporatists signed onto the MDGs, which, we were told, would bring about global nirvana by 2015. But, as we found out when 2015 came along, the UN-WEF globalists simply upped the ante, replacing the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Deep State Absolutely Wants to Kill You – Alex Newman

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Award-winning journalist Alex Newman, author of the popular books “Deep State” and “Crimes of the Educators,” predicted at the beginning is this year that the Deep State demons will have one crisis after another to keep people confused and afraid.  The latest crisis is the economic and ecological disaster in East Palestine, Ohio.  Newman says expect many more disasters and explains, “All across the country we are seeing very bizarre things happen.  Factories and chemical plants going up in flames, food processing facilities blowing up, airplanes crashing in mysterious ways, and I think we are heading into an era of really serious crisis.  Last summer, I was putting together the wave of crises that the Deep State was preparing for us, and one of the terms I used was ‘polycrisis.’  Then, right before the World Economic Forum meeting this year, they actually put on their website is 2023 the year of the polycrisis?  Of course, it will be the year of the polycrisis.  I think we are prepared and being groomed for cyber-attacks, currency crisis, economic crisis and, of course, Russia/Ukraine and China/Taiwan.  I think all of this is going to be used for a series of never-ending crises until we are ready to give up our freedoms, give up our national sovereignty and self-government, and move towards this crazy totalitarian, technocratic system they want.”

Newman says it’s not going to be a kind transition for most people.  Newman says, “The thing that is so hard for people to understand is that there are very powerful people that are working together, and they absolutely want to kill you.  That is not speculation.  These people have been openly saying for a century that they believe there are too many people on this planet. . . .  The eugenics movement never died.  Margaret Sanger, the Rockefellers, Dr. Joseph Mengele was funded by the Rockefeller dynasty.  These people are very much still around.  Bill Gates is the perfect example.  His dad was on the board of Planned Parenthood, the largest butcher of unborn babies in America. . . . Bill Gates says openly and frequently that there are too many people on this planet.  He wants to use vaccines and healthcare to reduce the number of people on the planet.”

Newman has a dark warning for America and explains, “Now that they are done with America and we are no longer useful and an obstacle to this global agenda, they need to knock us out.  They may not want to resort to nuclear bombs, but if they did, it would not surprise me. . . .  America is founded on very important ideals, and these are, once again, making a resurgence.  Our self-evident truths that are enshrined in our Constitution, that God created us equally, that God gave us the right to property.  God gave us our right to life.  Government exists to protect these rights.  These are Biblical ideas distilled into a political document. . . . These are ideals that are fundamental to liberty, and as long as the United States exists in its present form . . . . America is a major threat to this agenda.  I don’t think we should put it past them that they would use nuclear bombs against us.  I also think there is a fifth column in Washington that would be more than happy to collaborate.

There is much more in the 35-min interview.

Blow-Up of Nord Stream I and II

Betrayal by politicians of their compatriots, the very people who trust them, who may have voted for them and who pay with their taxes for their wages and livelihoods, must be one of humanity’s most miserable crimes. It is so “low”, there is no word that adequately describes the absolute absence of ethics, morals and souls of such people.

Other than they are soulless, without ethics and without morals.

They may be rare, but such people and politicians do exist. They are in high demand by the oligarch-elitists and the masters of deceit and of corporate finance, operating from the dark, the Deep State, ruling through their executing organs, Washington / the White House; the World Economic Forum (WEF), WHO, the FED, the European Union / EU Commission – and, finally, via the Bank for International Settlement (BIS).

A reminder: In the 1930s and 40s, the BIS channeled US funding to Germany’s Reichsbank (Central Bank) to finance Hitler’s war against the Soviet Union. Today, the BIS is literally the Central Bank of (almost) all Central Banks.

*

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and unelected President of the EU Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, meet the profile of such sought-after traitors. It took the obscure Powers that Be months of vetting the candidacy of the two for their designated jobs of respectively, Chancellor of Germany and President of the European Commission (EC).

They way these tasks have to be carried out, they are jobs of “integrity” to the obscure, to the Deep State, to the Death Cult that seems to be running our world – for now.

The latter, Ms. Von der Leyen, proved her disloyalty to the European people by ordering in September 2022 4.5 billion doses of Pfizer covid vaxxes for a European population of about 450 million – about ten jabs per person. These are billions of people’s tax euros paid to Pfizer for a totally invalid and highly dangerous experimental mRNA injection.

And this after Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has openly recognized that Pfizer vaxxes are not preventing the covid “disease”, nor the spread of covid. He also acknowledged the serious side effects that the mRNA experimental injections may have.

Instead of immediately calling off all the vaccination programs around the globe to protect what’s left of unvaxxed people, especially children, mankind’s future generation, von der Leyen puts more fuel into the vaxx bulldozer so that more people suffer, lose their immunity, become ill and may die. Not to mention the utter corruption behind the 4.5 billion doses deal – so far unpunished. Von der Leyen keeps her illustrious position of hypocrisy and falsehood.

However, today the focus is on the former, on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on his fore-knowledge of the Nord Stream Pipeline blow-up.

As a precursor to what will follow, Madame Von der Leyen was fully aware, involved and up-to-date as a compatriot and ally of Olaf Scholz’s, having gone through the same Schwab / WEF Academy for Young Global Leaders (YGL). On top of it, Ursula von der Leyen is also on the WEF’s Board of Trustees. She is deeply committed to the Agenda WEF / UN 2030.

How much advance knowledge did Chancellor Scholz have about the blow-up of Nord Stream 2 on 26 September 2022?

Notwithstanding some lacking precisions in Seymour Hersh’s article – see this – during a joint Press Conference by President Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the White House on February 7, 2022, about two weeks before Russia’s Special Action on Ukraine, Joe Biden said these precise words, “If Russia invades, there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2, we will bring an end to it.”

When a reporter asked how exactly he intended to do it, given that the project was within the control of Germany, Biden just said, “I promise we will be able to do it.”

Mr. Scholz, standing next to Biden, answered the same question, saying something like, we are in this together. (See Michel Chossudovsky’s detailed analysis and video interview)

This – “we are in this together” – would indicate that they talked about and agreed before on how to stop Nord Stream 2. If you were a German businessman in manufacturing, who depends on cheap Russian gas to remain internationally competitive, or a simple German or European citizen, whose winter heating depends on Russian gas, wouldn’t these words alone already indicate an utmost betrayal by Scholz of the German and European people?

Europe depends about 40% on Russian gas. The percentage in Germany in 2021 may be in excess of 50%.

On 22 February 2022, two days before the Russian military action on Ukraine, Chancellor Scholz called off the completion of Nord Stream 2 which at that time was scheduled to be ready for Russian gas deliveries within about three months. See this.

The Russian military intervention on Ukraine’s constant aggression on the 95% Russian Donbass population – ever since the 2014 western- / US- / NATO-instigated Maidan coup, as well as on Ukraine’s dozens of US-funded bio-weapon laboratories – took place only two days later, on 24 February 2022.

Did Olaf Scholz have previous knowledge of the date and timing of the Russian military action?

There were many omissions or unanswered questions in Sy Hersh’s article (above), some of which were cleared up by a follow-up interview of Hersh’s by journalist Fabian Scheidler. See this interview for more details.

What emerged from this Hersh–Scheidler conversation is that Gordon Sullivan, a member of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, was leading an “interagency group” that met in December 2021 secretly to figure out what “actions” to take, i.e. how to destroy the pipelines.

Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland – remember, “f*ck Europe” – who had been deeply involved in the infamous US- / NATO-instigated February 2014 Ukraine Maidan Coup and in every step from then to now, talked already earlier about “we can do it” – meaning destroying the pipelines.

From the Hersh–Scheidler conversation expired that the decision to blow up the gas ducts was taken around 20 January 2022.

These are Sy Hersh’s words in his conversation with Fabian Scheidler,

“And then the president as well, with Olaf Scholz, said on February 7 [referring to the joint Biden-Scholz Press Conference] that we could do it. Scholz said nothing specific; he was vague. But a question that I would ask Scholz, if I had a parliamentary hearing, is this: Did President Biden tell you about this? Did he tell you at that time why he was so confident he could blow it up? We didn’t have a plan yet, but we knew we had the capability to do it.”

This question is, indeed, crucial. To what extent was Olaf Scholz – and by association Madame von der Leyen – involved in the decision-making process? In any case, it is almost sure that Scholz knew already about it at the 7 February 2022 Press Conference, when he told the asking journalist “We are in this together”.

The unelected President of the EC, Ursula von der Leyen, was without the slightest doubt fully on board with the decision – to the detriment of citizens of Germany and Europe. 

Mr. Scholz also knew that the overall WEF / UN Agenda 2030 included destruction and deindustrialization of Germany as a precursor to annihilation of the European economy. He was also aware that Germany’s corporate manufacturing community, and, of course, the public at large, were completely against such measures.

Olaf Scholz also knows about the close links the German business community has with Russia and may have suspected, even above and beyond the US-CIA suspicions, that these close ties may find ways of accessing Russian gas.

As an obedient scholar of Klaus Schwab’s WEF, might it then be too far-fetched to speculate that Mr. Scholz himself may have given Washington, the Biden Administration, a hint in the direction of “blowing-up” the pipelines – “just to be sure”?

Knowing by now, the degree of traitors of the German and European people Scholz and von der Leyen are, this is, of course, just pure speculation. It’s left to the reader to form his or her own opinion.
