Published on 29 mrt. 2020
In less than a week the Federal Reserve has been merged with the US Treasury (implying it wasn’t always that way) and BlackRock, the World’s largest and most powerful financial services institution, has been put in charge of executing future acquisitions and trades.
Who is BlackRock? What do they own? And perhaps more importantly, what and who do they control? Jazz and James dive into BlackRock and uncover a significant portion of the apparatus by which US politics are controlled and manipulated.
What is BlackRock?
BlackRock is the top investor in weapons manufacturers such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and General Dynamics. The weapons from these companies are used in Military strikes around the World, resulting in the deaths of innocents civilians and the destruction of the environment. These companies lie at the brutal heart of the Military Industrial Complex. In supporting them, BlackRock and its shareholders are making huge profits off of global suffering. We cannot allow BlackRock to continue to go unchallenged about its War profiteering. Together, we can hold them accountable.
