    The environmental, social, and governance (ESG) agenda once had the staunch backing of billionaires, Western governments and the United Nations. Big Capital, however, is backtracking from the very Frankenstein it had created. What are the reasons behind this volte-face?

    In a June 10 Tweet, Elon Musk, the embodiment of the electric vehicle (EV) revolution, declared that “ESG is the devil”.

    ESG stands for the “environmental, social and governance” principles which dictate that certain aspects of a company’s work must be taken into account when deciding whether to invest in it. An investment-worthy company must have a good score on things like climate change, sustainability, energy efficiency, diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as corruption and bribery prevention, among others.

    Musk’s outburst was sparked by the shockingly low ESG scores assigned to Tesla by S&P Global, a ratings and market intelligence heavyweight. Tesla earned 37 points (out of a possible 100, where anything above 70 is considered “good” and anything below 50 is deemed “poor”) on its ESG scorecard while Philip Morris, the global tobacco giant, received a commendable score of 84. Similarly, as the Washington Free Beacon discovered, the London Stock Exchange gave British American Tobacco a score of 94.

    Perhaps, lighting up 20.3 billion tobacco products daily worldwide does wonders for the environment and sustainability.

    Why Is Big Capital Ditching the “Social, Environment, Governance” ESG Agenda?

    “3,000 reserve personnel on July 13. Since February 2022, the Pentagon has deployed over 20,000 additional forces to Europe, bringing its current total to over 100,000”

    This is certainly bad because it’s quiet, and real. On target for their new “Plan”, next early summer, as per Armstrong.

    The thing of going nation-by-nation is very good though and necessary, it will restore the balance and sovereignty. NATO and everyone, EU, won’t allow it, but since they’re dead, eventually it will happen that way, ‘eventually’ being a very long time.

    “anybody with just a minimal education in the military sciences would know this was a failed effort to them from the start.”

    Yet they did it, and the Pentagon let them. So…why?

    ““…an outcome no rational actor could ever view as contributing to the collective peace and security of Europe.”

    You had me at ‘rational actor’. This is what we don’t have. Essentially anywhere. And the bad thing about insane people – or misbehaving people, like narcissists or drug addicts – is that they don’t know they’re insane. Or not the level to which.

    “However, US, NATO and Ukrainian leaders are still chasing dreams that are impossible to realize, Brenner warned.”

    Yes. That’s the definition of “insanity”. No, Johnny, if you jump off the roof, your Batman baby blanket will not let you fly.

    “Zelensky, for his part, never has given a damn about Ukrainians..”

    Maybe he has, but he’s sure riding the tiger now, yes? And his treatment at NATO after murdering everyone within his borders, sure shows who NATO and every world leader really is, right? Shoot yourself in the head for us, we’ll still turn our backs on you if you didn’t ALSO give me bacon.

    “In the long run, the only countries that will strengthen in terms of their armaments capacity will be the USA and Great Britain.”

    What a coincidence. Why, oh why, does anyone, anywhere trust the Anglos? Perfidious Albion.

    “where’s the concern for the United States in that?” In response, Pence said “it’s not my concern.”

    Breathtaking. And honest: thank God for 1A, never stop talking, Mike, that’s how we know who you are. Should ask him about “Sound of Freedom” – I here there were interesting rumors from him back in his home state about that.

    “Nobel Physics Laureate 2022 Slams ‘Climate Emergency’ Narrative (DS)

    Welp, I guess he’s no longer a scientist: He has opinions. He is open to discussion and debate. And we all know Science™, and especially The Science™, don’t do that. “Science” is always settled and Opinions are Treason. Just like asking questions is. That’s Science!

    He might get further saying something like, “But there IS a pollution crisis” which is generally true. Most of that pollution is in Asia, etc, on behalf of the West, that is, it’s OUR pollution. And most of the pollution in the West comes directly from EPA regulation, which universally approves and promotes things such as Glyphosate and food additives, batteries and plastics, and other regulators which approve of paving all farmland that can be captured in any way, from sea to shining sea. But ESPECIALLY all of Holland, particularly around Amsterdam.

    WHO, imagine if they got just a tick further. No guns. And no opposition to Obamacare. Then mandatory vaccination of experimental gene therapy and digital ID would be already done deal. Practically over, except brushfire rebellions like Winston’s. The battle here gave wind to the resistances elsewhere.

    Athens Heat: I see someone with a battery, they should get the old fashioned folding paper fan. Everyone should, they’re amazingly helpful, if anything can help. Cheap, portable, you’d make a mint selling them at $1 apiece.

    Well, that’s it: even eating ice is no help for all-day humid heat. It’s just oppressive and exhausting.

    ESG/Cars:

    Yes, I forget who the worst in the ESG world was, like “Sketchers” company or something. Just an average innocuous company they were trying to bring to heel, like they used to with (illegal) infinite naked-short-selling like Overstock.com What did “Sketchers” do to receive such immense industry-wide ire, the worst company on the face of the planet, leaving Morris, Mansanto, Exxon in the dust? Nobody in their boardroom has a vagina. So therefore 0% ESG. Big Tobacco, 95% Electric car company (if they don’t actively censor people) 10%. Yup.

    Anyway, real news was Electric cars are dead. Yes, they’re stacking up in lots worldwide, but worse: Insurance companies are losing 30c on every $1 of policies written. That is, a g– d——d catastrophe. How does that work? Well, they’re pulling out of CA completely, and also FL. Also no doubt accidents have doubled or something in micro-strokes. But that’s not the one here.

    Being as retarded as all idiotic, unresponsive bureacracies, they write policies on electric cars, but then suddenly realize the batteries light on fire. So therefore they are writing policies (probably gov’t arm-twisting) then write off a car for a bumper-tap in a parking lot. Because if it’s been hit, at all, ever, the batteries may be damaged, rupture, and light their whole garage and house on fire. And that happens later. And you can’t tell.

    So they just total every EV for any event, always, at any time. Floods of course without question. And that’s expensive. Duuuuuuuuh.

    So now we just said we basically can’t recycle the batteries. (Oddly). Among other things, you want a stack, a warehouse of “Maybe damaged” 1,000lb lithium batteries, each a bomb ready to go off and take your recycle facility with it? So we’re mining the lithium, and then NOT USING IT. Disposing of this toxic element when the battery actually IS good and has 10 years life left. BUT NO ONE CAN TELL.

    …And they’re doubling YOUR car insurance rates to pay for it. For your 2005 Corolla in Nashville.

    …’Cause that’s how we’re going to have enough lithium and chargers and grid to have electric cars: YOU AIN’T GETTIN’ ONE. Only the super-rich, just like air travel. We’ll just jack rates until you cave. Peasant.

    The powers that be have sooo many irons in the fire they can’t keep track. As is the usual case they also
    forget which ones are red hot and which are cooling. As such they often handled the hot one thinking it cool and vice versa. Fun to watch. Too bad it’s the plebs that get the bill. With things like ESG and that Pence outing maybe a few more will start to see it.,

    It’s all shit, but hey, it’s nice to actually capture and reverse engineer this crap to really find it’s weak points of total failure

    Russian Specialists Captured American/British Equipment And Give It A Review

    “Captured NATO equipment was sent for study by defense industry specialists.

    One of the first to study the British armored car Mastiff PPV. The main problem of Western armored vehicles is a huge amount of electrical equipment and air suspension, said Ruslan Kurbanov, Hero of Russia, commander of a tank company of the Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet.

    He believes that all copies are much inferior to Russian and Soviet technology. The only advantage of this technique, as noted, is the survival of the crew.

    “There are very few cars where fragments flew inside. I think they have very good armor. Basically, it’s on a psychological level, when people left the cars in a panic and ran away,” Kurbanov added.”

    NATO is “the real troublemaker” that has fully embraced “Cold War thinking and ideological prejudice” as it continues to generate global tensions, China’s permanent representative to the UN has said.

    US could stop Ukraine conflict instantly – Hungary

    The US wants the conflict in Ukraine to continue and has failed to explain its reasons to NATO allies, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said.

    Kiev is fully dependent on the West in the fight against Russia.

    At this point, “Ukraine has lost any real sovereignty,” Orban claimed, citing Kiev’s devastated economy, and heavy dependence on Western allies for funding and weaponry.

    The Hungarian leader also accused Kiev of using moral blackmail to receive Western support.

    Putin has thus far responded to the West’s aggressive expansion of NATO right up to Russia’s borders by targeting missiles against new member states, and not by offering each of them individually a bilateral treaty-proposal and guarantees for peace, including mutual weapons-inspections.

    The proof is in the pudding (the end of the meal): Putin will be remembered either as the person who sold Russia out, the person too cowardly to defend Russia, or the person who saved Russia. Keep your minds open to all three, we will only discover in 20 years from now when we know the outcome of the current global power crisis.

    “The US is amassing troops in Europe at the time Ukraine’s military capability of taking on the Russian troops is waning.”

    Russia will be gaming this conflict every day, discovering new possibilities and prioritising them, trying to discover the most likely outcome. Nuclear war is a big deal to us, but the Russians will be looking to save Russia, in which case we will be able to detect the nuclear decision when Russia starts to withdraw its troops from Ukraine. Russia will want to protect as many troops as possible before the missiles start flying, because all leaders of nuclear nations hope that the nuclear weapons will neutralise their opponent and let them take over. This may not be realistic, but they will hope for this, so they will protect their best soldiers for the post-nuclear fight.

    US President Joe Biden signed an Executive Order increasing Operation Atlantic Resolve in Europe with 3,000 reserve personnel on July 13.

    The USA is so predictable, why wouldn’t China and Russia just use time to defeat their enemy? The USA is so busy destroying itself that there is simply no need for either China or Russia to be proactive and trigger a defeat of the NATO and sychophants club. It is almost as if the whole game had been planned a long time ago: Ukraine Nazis die, ((Blackrock)) takes over Ukraine on the cheap, Russia earns billions.

    Apart from the Ukraine fighters, who exactly is losing out from this war in Ukraine? Russia makes a bunch of cash, Israel gets rid of its most hated Nazis and the US MIC makes trillions, the Ukraine mob will be sending billions back to their paymasters in the US, the terrorist groups in Europe and Arabia will be rebuilding their weapon stocks, so who is losing? The Ukraine will have no families for the next 20 years, the Ukraine have no men to work over the next 30 years, the mercenary networks will be thinning out, the USA idiots will be paying tax and getting a tiny fraction back in return, the US army in Syria will probably get out or get wiped out. All the little people lose, all the big people steal: that is life.

    They have brought the Western world into communism and China and Russia into capitalism, with total surveilliance, mind you. It’s a dialectic. Coke and Peppsi. 1CREW runs this shitshow.
