Those who acknowledge the “swamp” that politics has become point out the shocking fact that elected officials seem to become millionaires after they are in office.
While members of Congress earn six figures, in the $174,000-193,400 range, the salary is a far cry from the millions accumulated in office for some of them. Questions as to how public servants could increase their wealth while in office usually do not lead to answers involving integrity.
James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, has a media group that has been participating in undercover encounters in an effort to uncover abusive or illegal behavior within organizations. Now, a breaking story involves those at O’Keefe’s media group who have infiltrated Black Rock, the world’s largest asset manager.
The several damning admissions released in a series of covertly-recorded meetings highlight the behaviors, as recruiter Serge Varlay describes how BlackRock is able to “run the world,” and that it’s easier to pull off shenanigans when “people aren’t thinking about it.”
Zero Hedge reports:
According to Varlay, US Senators can be ‘bought’ for as little as $10k. “The senators…are f***ing cheap – you got 10 grand, you can buy a senator,” he remarked.
You can take this big f*** ton of money and buy people, I work for a company called BlackRock…It’s not who is the president it’s who is controlling the wallet of the president. You could buy your candidates. First, there is the senators these guys are fuckin cheap. Got 10 grand you can buy a senator I’ll give you 500k right now It doesn’t matter who wins they’re in my pocket. -OMG
Blackrock is also apparently loving the war in Ukraine, which Varley described as “real fuckin’ good for business.”
Ukraine is good for business, you know that right? Russia blows up Ukraine’s grain silos and the price of wheat is going to go mad up. The Ukrainian economy is the wheat market. The price of bread goes up, this is fantastic if you’re trading. Volatility creates opportunity for profit…
According to Varley, it’s “exciting when shit goes wrong.”
“So what are you gonna do if you’re a trading firm? The moment that news hits, within a millisecond, you’re going to pump trades into whoever the wheat suppliers are. Into their stocks. Within an hour or two that stick goes f*cking up and then you sell and you just make, I don’t know, however many mil,” he continued. “The Ukrainian economy is tied very largely to the wheat market, global wheat market, prices of bread, you know, literally everything goes up and down. This is fantastic if you’re trading.
“Volatility creates opportunity to make profit. War is real fucking good for business.”
As the Post Millennial notes:
Varley also described himself as a person who “decide[s] people’s fates,” saying, “Every f*cking day, I literally decide how somebody’s life is going to be shaped,” he said. “I’m not actually a finance guy, I just know what happens because I’m recruiting people who do these things.”
Varlay said these banks run the world because “you acquire stuff. You diversify, you acquire, you keep acquiring. You spend whatever you make in acquiring more. And at a certain point, your risk level is super low. Imagine you’ve invested in 10 different industries, from food to drinks to technology. If one of them fails it doesn’t matter, you have nine others to back you up.”
Varlay said that once “you own a little bit of everything… you can take this big f*ck-ton of money and then you can start to buy people.”
As President Joe Biden faces investigation as to his part in son Hunter Biden’s international schemes, and Hunter makes a plea deal with the DOJ to sidestep serious charges and admit to minor ones, possibly to avoid jail time, the public is scrutinizing its elected officials as to the hidden reasons for political actions, and personal gain due to those actions.
The continued war in Ukraine, the alliances between enemies and potential enemies of the United States, and the number of plagues inflicted on the American public such as the pandemic, food shortages, high prices, restrictive legislation, and more are reasons for all to assess the leadership at the federal level.
The constant legal attacks on former President Trump, none of which have resulted in a conviction, bear witness to the weaponization of the DOJ and the corruption within the judicial branch of the federal government, a branch designed originally to be above political agenda and accountable to the U.S. Constitution.
Former President Donald Trump, who in 2016 ran on a platform of “draining the swamp” is leading the polls for the Republican nomination to resume his agenda in the White House in 2024. Trump has surpassed current President Joe Biden in popularity, according to polls, and with undercover initiatives such as this, it is easy to see why.
