James O’Keefe and his O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) have unveiled an explosive undercover video involving a recruiter from BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management company. The video captures the recruiter, Serge Varlay, making startling assertions, including that senators can be “bought for $10,000” and the ongoing Ukraine war is “good for business.”
In the seven-minute footage shot in New York City, Varlay brags about his influential position in the company: “I can literally decide people’s fate[s].” However, he mentions that BlackRock tends to avoid public attention: “They don’t want to be in the news. They don’t want people to talk about them.” When asked why, he suggests that staying out of the limelight makes their operations easier.
Varlay goes on to claim that financial institutions like BlackRock have control over global affairs. “You own a little bit of everything and that little bit of everything gives you so much on a yearly basis. You can take this big f***ton of money, and then you can start to buy people,” he states. Varlay even suggests that politicians are readily purchasable, stating: “Campaign financing… Yup, you can buy your candidates… You got ten grand? You can buy a senator.”
On the topic of war and its impact on business, Varlay said: “Ukraine is good for business… War is real f***ing good for business.” He explains this perspective by using the example of Ukraine’s grain silos. If Russia were to destroy these, the global price of wheat would surge, providing a fantastic opportunity for trading.
Varlay also emphasizes BlackRock’s influence due to its significant stakes in companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and Fox, stating they can pressure the media to choose sides in order to generate controversy and viewership.
Although sceptical of the reporter’s questioning and oblivious to the fact he was being recorded, Varlay expressed no concern about the public’s reaction to his claims. He believes most people don’t care about these harsh realities: “It’s beyond them.”
However, Varlay fails to mention BlackRock’s forceful implementation of radical Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) policies upon companies, leading to controversial partnerships, such as Anheuser-Busch’s collaboration with transgender social media personality Dylan Mulvaney.
Despite the shocking revelations, the credibility of Varlay’s assertions remains in question due to his boastful demeanor and apparent inaccuracies, such as the inflated claim of BlackRock’s assets being $20 trillion as opposed to the reported $9 trillion by Bloomberg.
BlackRock refrained from commenting when approached by OMG. O’Keefe promises more revelations in Part Two of the undercover video series. Whether these developments bring credibility to Varlay’s claims or paint a clearer picture of BlackRock’s operations remains to be seen.
