WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) hosted a panel Friday titled “The New Axis of Evil: Soros, Schwab, and Fink,” which focused on the ability of wealthy elites to force far-left policies upon the United States and around the world.
The panel consisted of Sean Spicer, former President Donald Trump’s first press secretary; Andrew Puzder, businessman and senior visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation; and Charles McCall, Oklahoma Speaker of the House.
The title references the influence of leftist financier George Soros, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, and Larry Fink, CEO of the investment firm BlackRock; but the actual discussion was more broadly about the impact of so-called “environmental, social, and corporate governance” (ESG) standards, a scoring system that incentivizes investing in companies not on the basis of their performance for customers and shareholders but rather on their fealty to so-called “social justice” principles such as diversity and environmentalism.
Puzder explained that the trend began with pressure from entities like BlackRock for corporations to embrace the Paris Climate Accords, “shoving these policies down on the boards of the companies they invest in,” leveraging their power as shareholders to get like-minded ideologues on the companies’ boards.
Noting that ESG funds “underperform the S&P 500, yet a lot of pension money is trying to be seized and directed” to them, McCall recounted how his state recognized the trend last year and took actions to protect Oklahoma pension funds from it. They included a law requiring the state to divest from companies that boycott the fossil fuel industry.

United Airlines acted despicably when they forced unvaccinated staff out of their jobs, laying-off those who objected to taking the experimental jab on religious grounds.
It's time all of us stood up for these brave conscientious objectors who refused to budge.
SIGN: I am boycotting United Airlines until they permanently drop their COVID shot mandate.
Thousands of employees refused to take the shot and United placed them on an “UNPAID LEAVE of ABSENCE,” a new term for "fired".
The airline later invited the staff back amid the ensuing chaos of crew shortages, but the COVID policy remains in place, hanging over the unvaccinated as a daily threat if authorities call for more restrictions.
United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby even mocked the unvaccinated of the company at the time, saying they “…suddenly becoming religious” and openly threatened them that were putting their "job on the line.”
The unvaccinated were not allowed to work, the airline would not pay them, and they were denied all benefits of United employees, including travel privileges, access to health savings, health benefits, and (in the name of health safety) they denied Medical Insurance Coverage during the Covid-19 medical emergency.
BOYCOTT UNITED AIRLINES UNTIL THEY APOLOGIZE
30 unvaccinated, religious staff are now bravely taking a landmark court case against their former employer.
They contend that United Airlines went further than any other airline in mandating the shot for all staff, and then illegaly placed many of the religious staff on unpaid leave for their refusal to comply.
The medical products being forced on staff were developed and produced using aborted human fetus cells, thus violating the consciences of many believers concerned with the sanctity of life.
Join the Boycott: I support the 30 unvaccinated staff in their pursuit of justice.
Even after United Airlines had been informed by several plaintiffs that the Covid-19 vaccines were not working as advertised in August 2021, the airline created an ultimatum for its 67,000+ employees. Get the shot, or lose your job.
With staffs' religious liberty trampled upon, United used every trick in the book to make their position untenable.
Plaintiffs in the lawsuit even report monetary incentives and extra holidays being offered to break Federal Aviation regulations barring pilots and crew from taking experimental medicines, as well as condemnation, shaming, and accusations the vaccine was failing due to their non-compliance, and that they were killing people.
These heavy-handed tactics were intended to cause the unvaccinated to bend to the airline's will.
But the affected staff say they "kneel only to God in Heaven, the maker of Heaven and Earth."
We must all seek justice against the illegal, indecent, and treacherous actions that United exacted against its own staff.
Please share this petition with as many people as possible - help us fight this battle so that future generations of Christians won’t have to fear this type of treatment by their employers.

“ESG is just purely political activism,” he said, a manifestation of the idea that the “man with the gold makes the rules, and Joe Biden wants to use your gold to make his rules.” McCall also confirmed that, even in red Oklahoma, the influence of Soros is “very pervasive…we’ve seen an unprecedented amount of money coming in.”
“Soros figured out that the real action today is at the state level,” Puzder agreed. “He’s not a good person, but he’s not a stupid person either, and he’s got a lot of money.”
Puzder took some time to lay out what ordinary Americans can do to push back on woke corporate influence. He endorsed the website 2ndVote, which rates the ideological leanings of corporations, and urged anyone who owns stock in a company to take an active interest and vote in board elections themselves, instead of letting funds vote their shares for them.
He also urged consumers not merely to stop buying goods or services from activist corporations like Disney, but to take the time to directly inform them why. “As customers, everybody in this room can have a tremendous impact,” Puzder said, because the more pressure they place on these corporations, the easier it is for CEOs to resist the contrary pressure from activists.
