Last week, Glenn Beck sat down with independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for an extensive interview. The duo broached a wide range of subjects, including the World Economic Forum, NATO, the conflicts in Russia/Ukraine and Israel/Gaza, climate change, and of course, Big Pharma — which Kennedy has been incredibly outspoken about.

On that subject, Kennedy was quick to bring up the absurdity of how COVID-19 was handled, starting with Donald Trump.

“During COVID ... President Trump got rolled by his bureaucrats, and he came in saying, ‘I’m a businessman, I’m gonna run this place like a business,' [so] he gave the keys to all of our shops and stores and businesses to Tony Fauci and shut down 3.3 million businesses,” he told Glenn.

Glenn agreed wholeheartedly and followed with a question we all want answered: “What do you do to restore the trust [in the medical industry]?”

“What we now know because of the Wuhan lab ... [is] they’re messing with Ebola and they’re messing with Chikungunya and all of these really horrific diseases ... with 50%, 20%, 10% [mortality rates],” he told Glenn, adding that “of course some of them escape every year.”

Who’s behind this atrocity?

If you guessed Anthony Fauci, you’re correct.

Kennedy explained that when the Patriot Act was passed, it mandated “that any federal officer or employee who violates [the Geneva Convention or the 1973 Bioweapons Convention] cannot be prosecuted.”

“That relaunched the bioweapons arms race,” he said. The Pentagon “started redirecting all that money to Anthony Fauci to do bioweapons research.”

“So, why isn’t he in jail?” Glenn asked.

“He’s not in jail because Joe Biden is president,” was Kennedy’s frank answer.

That honesty perked up the ears of news outlets such as the New York Post and the Daily Mail, which published articles covering Glenn and Kennedy’s candid conversation.

RFK Jr. admits he was WRONG to call for Glenn Beck’s censorship: 'I would never say anything like that today'

[rebelmouse-proxy-image,0,300,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Last week, independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sat down for an extensive interview with Glenn Beck. The two discussed a range of subjects, including the World Economic Forum (which Kennedy fittingly called the “billionaires boys' club”), the complexities of NATO, the depravity of Big Pharma, and the ongoing conflicts between Russia/Ukraine and Israel/Gaza, among other issues.

Glenn also pressed Kennedy on his thoughts regarding ESG, the Second Amendment, as well as the candidate's previous statements on climate change — one of which was aimed directly at Glenn.

At a Live Earth concert back in 2007, RFK Jr. made the following statement:

“So, I'm gonna tell you this, that the next time you see John Stossel or Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity — these flat-earthers, these corporate toadies lying to you, lying to the American public, and telling you that global warming doesn't exist — you send an email to their advertisers and tell them you're not going to buy their products anymore. This is treason and we need to start treating them now as traitors.”

“You’re smart enough to know what that means constitutionally,” Glenn said after reading the quote.

“I wouldn’t say that today,” was Kennedy’s humble response. “Part of the reason I wouldn’t say that is because I watched our country run over not only the First Amendment but all three arms of the First Amendment.”

He then cited the way the government “closed a million churches for a year,” “[rolled] over the rights of freedom of assembly,” “shut down 3.3 million businesses with no due process, no just compensation,” and “got rid of the Seventh Amendment” as the reasons he feels differently today.

“The First Amendment was not written to protect speech that we all want to hear. It was for the speech nobody wants to hear,” even if it’s “embarrassing,” “appalling,” or shares “ideas that are horrible ideas,” he told Glenn.

“I would never say anything like that today,” he continued, referring to his 2007 statement. “My thinking on it has evolved, and I can see how dangerous statements like that are.”

JPMorgan and BlackRock back out of United Nations' climate action group after ESG initiatives go too far

[rebelmouse-proxy-image,102,0,82 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

American investment giants JPMorgan Chase, BlackRock, and State Street Global Advisors have dropped out of a United Nations-backed climate group reportedly because the next phase of the group's sustainability goals takes things too far. The climate group claimed that companies are not reaching their goals "fast enough."

Climate Action 100+ is an initiative making a massive global push for environmental, social, and corporate governance, which is responsible for many of the progressive policies pushed in corporations. The idea is that if a company or entity does not incorporate the ESG doctrine into its business practice, it would not be preferred by investment firms.

According to Fox News, the firms leaving the climate group signaled that they would be dealing with climate plans internally and that Climate Action's new "Phase 2" plans were over the top.

JPMorgan Chase said its firm had "built a team of 40 dedicated sustainable investing professionals, including investment stewardship specialists who also leverage one of the largest buy side research teams in the industry."

"Given these strengths and the evolution of its own stewardship capabilities, JPMAM (JP Morgan Asset Management) has determined that it will no longer participate in Climate Action 100+ engagements," the firm added.

BlackRock withdrew U.S. business from the climate group and is shifting to its smaller international entity in its place.

State Street, on the other hand, made it clear that the new climate commitments conflicted with the company's investment plans.

"SSGA has concluded the enhanced Climate Action 100+ phase 2 requirements for signatories are not consistent with our independent approach to proxy voting and portfolio company engagement," State Street said in a statement.

Both groups noted that pending litigation against the climate group was also a contributing factor.

Climate Action 100+ told the Washington Free Beacon that it "does not comment on individual signatories and their specific circumstances." The group reportedly noted that it added "more than 60 new signatories" last fall and "continues as intended with hundreds of global investors."

According to the group's website, Climate Action 100+ is an investor-led initiative to "ensure the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change."

The group's Phase 2 plans align with the coveted 2030 goal of "decarbonization" across the world. The new phase includes making "lead investors and individual engagers" disclose their voting records on particular votes of the group's interest.

Other listed benchmarks included "emissions reductions, and the key underlying factors leading to these," aligning with "pathways" dedicated to lowering the Earth's warming below 1.5°C, as well as "capital allocation, and asset-level change" regarding net-zero carbon transitioning.

Climate Action summarized its recent data with a message similar to that of other failing green-energy initiatives.

"The results showed that most focus companies are not moving fast enough to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement and reduce investors’ risk."

Pending litigation mentioned by investment groups is likely referring to a group of Republican attorneys general who have been conducting an investigation into Climate Action 100+ and its members. At least 20 attorneys general from states like Montana, Iowa, and Tennessee have investigated whether or not the asset managers have engaged in market manipulation or violated their fiduciary obligations.
