“I Am Taking This Very Seriously”: BlackRock’s Larry Fink Struggles With “Demonized” ESG Narrative – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/blackrocks-larry-fink-struggles-esg-narrative-control-mood-sours – “BlackRock, the world’s biggest asset manager, has faced increasing backlash about environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing. A handful of US states have pulled billions of dollars from BlackRock funds over accusations of ‘greenwashing,’ hurting the fossil fuel industry and turbocharging America’s ‘woke’ culture… On Tuesday, BlackRock’s Larry Fink told Bloomberg TV at the World Economic Forum in Davos that ESG investing has been tarnished: ‘Let’s be clear, the narrative is ugly, the narrative is creating this huge polarization.’.. Fink continued: ‘We are trying to address the misconceptions. It’s hard because it’s not business any more, they’re doing it in a personal way. And for the first time in my professional career, attacks are now personal. They’re trying to demonize the issues‘.”
A Hard-Edged Rock: Waging Economic Warfare on Humanity – by Colin Todhunter – https://www.globalresearch.ca/hard-edged-rock-waging-economic-warfare-humanity/5805466 – Why is much modern food of inferior quality? Why is health suffering and smallholder farmers who feed most of the world being forced out of agriculture?.. Mainly because of the mindset of the likes of Larry Fink of BlackRock – the world’s biggest asset management firm – and the economic system they profit from and promote… In 2011, Fink said agricultural and water investments would be the best performers over the next 10 years… Fink Stated: ‘Go long agriculture and water and go to the beach.’.. Unsurprisingly then, just three years later, in 2014, the Oakland Institute found that institutional investors, including hedge funds, private equity and pension funds, were capitalising on global farmland as a new and highly desirable asset class… Funds tend to invest for a 10-15-year period, resulting in good returns for investors but often cause long-term environmental and social devastation. They undermine local and regional food security through buying up land and entrenching an industrial, export-oriented model of agriculture.”
Mind Blowing: CDC Forced to Reveal How Deadly the COVID Jab Is – by Dr. Joseph Mercola – https://21stcenturywire.com/2023/01/23/mind-blowing-cdc-forced-to-reveal-how-deadly-the-covid-jab-is/ “In September 2022, The Epoch Times asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release its Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) data mining results. PRR1 measures how common an adverse event is for a specific drug compared to all the other drugs in the database… According to the standard operating procedures2,3 for the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is run jointly by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the CDC is required to perform these data mining analyses… Not only did the CDC refuse to release the data, but it also provided false information — twice — in response to The Epoch Times’ questions about the monitoring being performed. As reported by The Epoch Times back in September 2022,4 the CDC initially claimed PRR analyses were “outside the agency’s purview” and that no monitoring was being done by them… Eventually, the agency admitted it was doing PRRs, starting in February 2021, only to later claim they didn’t perform any PRRs until March 2022. The Epoch Times also cited several papers in which the FDA and/or CDC claimed their data mining efforts had come up empty handed.5 Now, we find that was all a pack of lies.”
Russia Developing Swarm Attack Drones for Battlefield, Rostec CEO Reveals – https://sputniknews.com/20230127/russia-developing-swarm-attack-drones-for-battlefield-rostec-ceo-reveals-1106765908.html – “Rostec State Corporation had a huge responsibility in 2022 from ensuring the fulfillment of government defense orders to increasing weapon and ammunition production to meet the goals of the Russian special military operation…In this interview with Sputnik, Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov reveals whether claims made by the West and Ukraine about Russia “running out of weapons” are true. He also explains how the corporation is coping with sanctions, what it achieved in 2022, what the company’s 2023 plans are, and more… Sputnik: What do you consider to be the main results achieved by Rostec over the past year?.. Chemezov: We persevered. Contrary to what our enemies expected, we did not stop our conveyors, we did not lay off people, and we did not stop our production programs. On the contrary, we hired specialists, continued to supply military products to the army, and increased production. We were able to fulfill our obligations to the Ministry of Defense in many areas ahead of schedule… We are also continuing all major civilian programs in aircraft construction, engines, electronics and medicine. This is a great credit to our work collectives. They work in several shifts and do their best for the country. I think this is the most important result.”
TRUMP, MAR A LAGO, MICHAEL JACKSON – by Aangirfan – https://aanirfan.blogspot.com/2019/07/ – “Donald Trump has paid roughly $30 million to settle child-sex complaints brought against him since 1989, according to the D.C.-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, of Wayne Madsen Report (WMR)… Michael Cohen reportedly helped settle a number of rape cases involving Trump… WMR received a list from a reputable Republican source of these settlement claims, all of which involve male and female minors… WMR’s GOP source indicated that Trump has refused to release his tax returns because they will reveal the many out-of-court settlements he has paid to silence his assault victims and their families… The list of Trump’s child victims came with an interesting reference point that was apparently part of the documentation in the settlement cases… Trump was designated with a psychiatric disorder referenced in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5) – The referenced disorder is ‘Pedophilic Disorder (F65.4)’.”
Breaking: Federal Judge Blocks California Law Punishing Doctors for ‘COVID Misinformation’ – by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D. – https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/federal-judge-blocks-law-california-covid-misinformation/ – “A federal judge in California on Wednesday granted Children’s Health Defense (CHD)-California Chapter’s request for a preliminary injunction to block a California law that would have allowed the state’s medical boards to punish doctors for spreading ‘COVID-19 misinformation.’.. In his 30-page opinion, Senior U.S. District Judge William Shubb determined the defendants in the case — California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Rob Bonta and California Medical and Osteopathic Boards — provided ‘no evidence that “scientific consensus” has any established technical meaning,’ and that the law provides ‘no clarity’ on the meaning of the word ‘misinformation.’.. Judge Shubb also found the ‘plaintiffs have established a likelihood of success on the grounds of their Fourteenth Amendment vagueness challenges.’.. The ruling pertains to a lawsuit filed Dec. 1, 2022, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California on behalf of plaintiffs CHD-California Chapter, Dr. LeTrinh Hoang and Physicians for Informed Consent.”
