States are Fighting Back Against The Woke Wolves of Wall Street

In Joe Biden’s America, sky-high gas prices are not a problem as they are, in fact, a feature of his radical energy policies. He admitted as much when he said crippling gas prices were part of an “incredible transition“ that will make the world “less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”

In just 18 months, President Biden has transformed America from the world’s top oil and gas producer into a nation once again dependent on other countries. He rejoined the Paris Climate Accord, bowed to environmental extremists by canceling the Keystone Pipeline, and shut down oil and gas lease sales from our vast public lands and waters. It should come as no surprise that gasoline prices have nearly doubled since the day President Biden took office.

But Democrats in Washington are not the only ones waging war on American energy. Liberals in the private sector have proven that they are all too willing to play along. On Wall Street, major investment firms are rating companies based on their adherence to left-wing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) values. Like the social credit scores issued by the Chinese Communist Party, a low ESG score can be devastating, making it virtually impossible for a company to raise capital.

In effect, Wall Street liberals are succeeding where DC liberals have failed: shutting down entire industries that offend their radical values. It is time that we stop underwriting these efforts with taxpayer dollars.

Many states have had enough and are beginning to fight back against the Woke Wolves of Wall Street. West Virginia recently announced that Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and BlackRock will be banned from doing business with the state as a result of the companies’ pernicious ESG policies that punish the coal industry. All five companies had previously announced that they were drastically cutting investments in new coal projects.

Other states are also rising to the occasion. Already, the New York Times reports that Louisiana and Arkansas have joined West Virginia in pulling more than $700 million out of BlackRock. State treasurers in Utah and Indiana are demanding an end to the insidious practice of ESG. And state attorneys general, led by Mark Brnovich of Arizona and Doug Peterson of Nebraska, are pursuing Wall Street firms for possible antitrust violations and the illegal restraint of trade or commerce. This is a perfect description of the tactics inherent to ESG.

The fact is, the left’s war on energy is both hypocritical and destructive. It’s hypocritical because it’s not really about saving the environment – otherwise, these massive Wall Street financiers wouldn’t be investing billions of dollars in China, the world’s largest polluter. And it’s extraordinarily destructive to American workers, families, and businesses – all of whom depend on affordable, reliable energy to power homes, vehicles, and our entire economy.

Republicans have long been castigated as the party of big business and the country club, but the left’s obsession with offshoring energy jobs hurts America’s working class the hardest. Our federal, state, and local governments should not be bankrolling businesses that hurt America’s backbone.

States with large employee pension funds invested in the stock market would be well advised to reign in massive investment firms that are pushing a radical ESG agenda. State and local governments should entrust their money to managers that don’t work against their citizens’ best interests. States should also pass model legislation developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council requiring government pension fund managers to vote the state’s shares, rather than delegating that authority to Woke Wolf of Wall Street firms.

Every state in the union should follow West Virginia’s example and give Wall Street a simple choice: either serve the interests of our citizens, or take your business elsewhere. Mike Pence, the former United States Vice President, is right in his desire to battle the woke promoters of ESG on Wall Street.

Help Us and Support Arizona SB 1250 to Protect Healthcare Workers from Coerced Vaccine Mandates

Nurses Out Loud with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – As it stands now, health workers at Medicare and Medicaid-certified facilities are required to have at least their first dose in a primary series of coronavirus vaccinations in order to provide care, treatment, or services. What sense does this make when they’re not considered fully injected, and we know the injection is a failed experiment that doesn’t stop transmission or infection?

Arizona Corruption, Katie Hobbs Belongs in Jail

The Tom Renz Show – If we the people, don’t stand up to this, we can kiss our elections goodbye; our votes will never count. This election was stolen, and the evidence is as clear as day. The lower Court’s rulings in Arizona were so egregiously wrong in all three election cases that they border on unethical, in my opinion. Kari Lake’s case is one of the strongest election cases…

The WEF, Harari, Schwab, and Transhumanism

Clearly, these ‘vaccines’ were ridiculously faulty, and the ‘scientists’  don’t know half as much as they thought about the human immune system. Some of the belief systems that are swirling around in WEF circles, with Noah Yuval Harari as the mouthpiece, include wild assumptions about the potential for genetic manipulation. Klaus Schwab seems to be some James Bond-type caricature enemy…

The Tom Renz Show – Being strong is now called toxic. This isn’t a sex thing; this is part of the agenda. An agenda that encourages kids to question their identity, and their sex; pressures parents to give their children hormone blockers and life-altering surgeries, all of which should be illegal; any parent giving their 8-year-old kid hormone blockers deserves to be in prison…

A Path Toward Justice Has Come

Nurses Out Loud with Nurse Michele, RN – Gail witnessed her hospital system, like so many, inaccurately counting unvaccinated versus vaccinated within their census.
