The ESG scam is a major threat to the U.S. economy and individual freedom, warns Kevin Stocklin, business reporter for The Epoch Times, in this interview on The Sentinel Report with Alex Newman.
In his New Film “Shadow State,” Stocklin warns of how ESG is an ideological vehicle of the business component for the UN’s “Sustainable Development Goals”, which is furthered by the World Economic Forum.
It is also an industry which is backed by tens of trillions of dollars, with our own money — retirement savings, and anything that goes through an index fund– being weaponized against America.
And yet those who support ESG are rebranding and recharacterizing ESG as a “risk management” tool, even though BlackRock, Vanguard, and State Street will be laughing all the way to the bank, in that they will have voting rights in Apple, GM, etc., while those whose assets are invested will have no say in how their shares are used.

–Biden uses dishonesty to call for billionaires to pay more taxes, gets roasted by Elon Musk: “I paid 53% taxes on my Tesla stock options (40% Federal & 13% state), so I must be lifting the average! I also paid more income tax than anyone ever in the history of Earth for 2021 and will do that again in 2022.” Fact check: “This is incorrect. Avg income tax rate in 2020 was 13.6%. Top 1% of taxpayers paid a 25.99% avg rate, more than eight times higher than the 3.1% avg rate paid by the bottom half of taxpayers. It increased from 20.1%/2019 to 22.2%/2020@CommunityNotes, is the 3% number cited above accurate?”

The Administration’s unrelenting campaign to advance a radical social and environmental agenda is only exacerbating these challenges.” “President Biden is choosing to put his Administration’s progressive agenda above the well-being of the American people,” he added.
