With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Texas is the most recent state to join a coalition of Republican-led states accusing BlackRock Inc. of putting woke investment criteria on a pedestal at the expense of shareholder profits in state pension funds.
19 attorneys general from predominantly conservative states sent a letter to BlackRock CEO Larry Fink where they challenged the investment management company’s use of environmental, social, and governance criteria to make key business decisions at the expense of investor returns. In a press release that was published on August 8, 2022, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton claimed that ESG climate goals hurt Texas’s extractive economy, such as oil and gas, and Texas’ state pension fund performance.
The release said that BlackRock’s actions may be in violation of federal and state laws.
Black is the largest asset manager in the world. According to a report by Darlene McCormick Sanchez at The Epoch Times , it sent a letter to several states asserting that it has teamed up with climate organizations just for the purposes of “dialogue” and is primarily focused on its fiduciary duty.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is the one spearheading this effort to take BlackRock to task. The letter he and 18 other attorneys general signed on to demonstrate the conflicts and inconsistencies that are in BlackRock’s letter and the commitments and statements it has made in public.
Per a news release that Brnovich’s office published, BlackRock’s campaign is more than just “dialogue.”
Brnovich argued that any individual buying a BlackRock fund is compelled to support ESG.
In the letter that Brnovich published on August 4, he argued BlackRock’s actions bring up anti-trust concerns and appear to purposely hurt and impede energy markets’ competitiveness.“Our states will not idly stand for our pensioners’ retirements to be sacrificed for BlackRock’s climate agenda. The time has come for BlackRock to come clean on […]
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 Giving Fuel. 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
- 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.
