'Got 10 grand? You can buy a senator'
By Bob Unruh, WND News Center
“Got 10 grand? You can buy a senator.”
A BlackRock recruiter has unleashed a firestorm with his comments on the company, its influence on Washington, and more, with those words.
They came in an undercover video released by O’Keefe Media Group, at OKEEFEMEDIAGROUP.COM.
BlackRock is a major financial services company that runs trillions of dollars in assets.
The video reveals BlackRock recruiter Serge Varlay saying, “because of the vast sums of money the company controls in the global market, they can essentially ‘run the world,'” according to a report from Daily Wire.
And the company wants to stay under the radar, he charged.
“They don’t want to be in the news. They don’t want people to talk about them. They don’t want to be anywhere on the radar.” He explained, “I suspect it’s because it’s easier to do things when people aren’t thinking about it.”
He said while BlackRock is big, it’s not alone in its scheming.
“All of these financial institutions, they buy politicians. You can take this big f*** ton of money and buy people … 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 f***ing 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,” he said.
He also explained how war is good for making money.
“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 tied very largely to the wheat market. The price of bread, literally everything goes up and down, this is fantastic if you’re trading. Volatility creates opportunity to make profit. War is real f***ing good for business. It’s exciting when s*** goes wrong, right?”
A report at Just the News documented that, “BlackRock has come under fire recently for adhering to environmental, social and governance principles. The firm had its stocks downgraded by top Wall Street analyst Brennan Hawken in October for its commitment to ESG. Additionally, 17 attorneys general last month moved to block BlackRock from making blanket utility purchases over concerns about the firm’s activist investments.”
