Berkshire Hathaway managed to score a total of zero imaginary woke points on the Corporate Equality Index. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) investigates how woke a business has become, solely on LGBTQ+ policies, and assigns it a woke credit core (CEI). I mentioned in another post how this score has become increasingly harder to obtain, with the organization making obscene demands regarding employer-funded healthcare and practices. So is Warren Buffett secretly homophobic to receive the lowest possible CEI score? No.
Buffett simply declined to report Berkshire Hathaway’s business to the Human Rights Campaign. The company did not suffer as a result. No one is forced to report their company’s policies to this agency, and yet nearly all Fortune 500 companies do. The HRC states it has over “1,200 participants,” meaning companies are choosing to pander to the woke agenda.
The HRC has been cracking down on businesses for over 20 years and the requirements have become completely ridiculous. “We get surveys all the time … on all kinds of things, and we basically don’t answer them,” explained Buffett in a 2014 interview, and added it’s Berkshire’s practice not to respond to surveys. Furthermore, Buffett does not dictate policies for the companies under Berkshire.
So yes, it really is that simple. Companies need to come together and agree to refrain from reporting to the HRC and giving any credit to this social score. The HRC, backed by Soros, has turned human rights into a culture war that is destroying companies (see: Anheuser Busch). It has taken numerous failed marketing campaigns for companies to realize that the woke agenda is bad for business. I know a gay man who said he detests “rainbow marketing” and finds it offensive. These businesses try to appease the HRC but should focus on their clients. I disagree with Buffett on many topics, but this is one case where I believe he is correct.

An expert in public finance and policy evaluation at Michigan State University, Economics Professor Mark Skidmore revealed in a recent study that the CV19 bioweapon vax was debilitating and deadly from the very beginning. His troubles began when the study he conducted showed nearly 300,000 CV19 vax deaths in just the first year of injections. The report went viral, and it was a top trending study on social media that 17 million people read. Dr. Skidmore has published dozens of peer-reviewed scientific papers, but this peer-reviewed study is now being retracted by a top scientific publication. On top of that, Dr. Skidmore is being investigated academically for essentially telling the truth about the deadly CV19 vax. Dr. Skidmore says, “I have never had anything happen like this in my career. I have published more than 80 peer-reviewed papers and never had a retraction or anything like this. Peer review is rigorous. An editor (at BMC Infectious Diseases) made a decision to publish, and she was courageous. She had to have known this had potential to cause controversy, and it has. That’s okay. There are people attacking me personally, and attacking the integrity of the process and my integrity. They are challenging the methods. . . . I asked about Covid illness issues, and there was not one inquiry about that. But, if I asked about Covid vaccine issues, it’s just the questions about that, and was it legitimate?”
The paper was scientifically peer reviewed and published in late January 2023. Now, for some unknown reason, BMC Infectious Diseases has recently retracted Dr. Skidmore’s study that showed a huge number of deaths that proved the CV19 vax program was an obvious global disaster from the very beginning. (Dr. Skidmore refutes the retraction here.) Did Dr. Skidmore get it right, or is his study dramatically flawed? Dr. Skidmore points out, “Right now, you can go on the CDC website, and you will learn that the federal government and the CDC has acknowledged a total of nine fatalities from the Covid vaccines—nine. I have, what I think, is a rough estimate of 280,000 (deaths from the CV19 bioweapon/vax in 2021). One of my mentors in graduate school said it is better to be generally correct than precisely incorrect. I think I am generally correct. Nine is very precise. I think I am a lot closer to being right than the CDC.”
In closing, Dr. Skidmore says, “We don’t need any more surveys. I think we need actual data to fatalities linked to the CV19 vaccines, and we need pathology reports on people on a large scale. We need more transparent clinical work. One last thing, zero dollars have been distributed from the federal government for vaccine injury or death claims—zero. We know these people who have been harmed and their families need help, and zero dollars for vaccine injury claims have been dispersed so far. So, we need help for these families.”
Dr. Skidmore has been blowing the whistle on deaths and injuries from the CV19 bioweapon/vax since the beginning. He did so on USAW more than a year ago in a post called “FDA, CDC Lying About Vax Deaths & Injuries – Mark Skidmore.”

Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong thinks the New World Order’s so-called “Great Reset” plan for humanity now needs war to try and make it work. It could happen in the next few weeks. Armstrong explains, “What they are trying to do is deliberately poke the bear. . . . They are increasing the pressure on just about everything under the sun. The West needs World War III. They just need it. The real problem here is they went to negative interest rates in 2014 in Europe. They have been unable to stimulate the economy, and Keynesian economics have completely failed. . . . I would say this is mismanagement of government on a global scale. The problem is that central banks have no control over the economy. Add to this, this type of inflation is substantially different than a speculative boom. This inflation is based upon shortages. These morons with covid . . . with lockdowns, ended up destroying the supply chains. . . . Things that are there, I buy extra of because next time it might be gone. So, everybody is increasing their hoarding. . . . So, what we have with Europe, with its negative interest rates, they have wiped out all the pension funds. They need 8% to break even, not negative rates. There is not a pension fund in Europe that is solvent at this stage of the game. . . . The European government is collapsing. If they end up defaulting, you are going to have millions of people down there with pitch forks storming the parliament. So, to avoid that, they need war. . . . The Biden Administration has deliberately destroyed the world economy.”
If there is war in Europe, the “U.S. dollar will get stronger initially and not weaker” according to Armstrong. Armstrong also says, “This is all deliberate. There is no return to normal here. Unfortunately, this is where we are headed.”
Armstrong contends, war in Europe could break out in a couple of weeks, and the EU and NATO are pushing this. Armstrong says, “They want Russia to do something. . . . This thing with Russia is the same thing all over again. Unfortunately, we are headed for war.”
Armstrong also talks in detail about the following subjects: Digital currency and why the Deep State is pushing so hard for it; gold, silver, food and just about everything going way up in price because of shortages. Armstrong recommends that people “stockpile two years of food.” Armstrong has other tips for what the common man needs to stock up on; Armstrong also says President Trump is the only President he knew that cared about U.S. soldiers dying in combat. This is why Trump wanted to bring the troops home, and the Deep State warmongers hated him for it. Armstrong also gives his predictions on who wins the midterm election this coming November. Will it matter which party comes out on top?
In closing, Armstrong says, “We are not getting back to normal. The system is crumbling from within, and it’s just like the fall of Rome, basically.

MAJOR GENERAL HIGGINBOTHAM ON KAMALA HARRIS’ BACKGROUND.
The History of Kamala Harris
For your knowledge and interest about the Biden VP. Here is a timely editorial that exposes the hidden background of Kamala Harris from the Combat Veterans for Congress Political Action Committee that is posted here with permission of the author. CVFC PAC supports the election of US military combat veterans to the US Senate and House of Representatives. The editorial begins:
Kamala Harris’ father was an avowed Marxist professor in the Economics Department at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. Both of Harris’ parents were active in the Berkeley based Afro-American Association; Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were the heroes of the Afro-American Association.
The group’s leader, Donald Warden (aka Khalid al-Mansour), mentored two young Afro-American Association members, Huey Newton and Bobby Seale; they created the Maoist inspired Black Panther Party which gained strong support from Communist China; the Black Panther Party served as the model for creation of the Black Lives Matter Marxist organization Khalid al-Mansour subsequently went on to arrange financing and facilitated for Barack Hussein Obama to be accepted as a student to matriculate at Harvard Law School.
Following her graduation from college, Harris returned to California and subsequently became the mistress of the 60-year-old married Speaker of the California Assembly, Willie Brown, Jr. Brown’s political campaigns were supported and funded by Dr. Carlton Goodlett, the owner of The Sun Reporter and several other pro-Communist newspapers.
Brown was elected as Mayor of San Francisco, and strongly endorsed Harris’ Marxist political philosophy; he guided Harris’ political rise in California politics, leading to her election as California’s Attorney General. Willie Brown, Jr. was a well-known long-time Communist sympathizer. Willie Brown, Jr. was initially elected to public office with the substantial help of the Communist Party USA.
Today, Willie Brown is widely regarded as one of the Chinese Communist Party’s best friends in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While serving as San Francisco District Attorney, Kamala Harris mentored a young San Francisco Radical Maoist activist, Lateefah Simon, who was a member of the STORM Revolutionary Movement; Simon currently chairs the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Board. Simon has always been close friends with the founder of Black Lives Matter Marxist Domestic Terrorists, Alicia Garza, as well as STORM member and avowed Communist, Van Jones. Harris has been openly and aggressively supporting Black Lives Matter Marxists; Kamala Harris is still closely associated with Maoist Lateefah Simon and Marxist Alicia Garza.
Kamala Harris’s sister Maya Harris was a student activist at Stanford University. She was a closely associated with Steve Phillips, one of the leading Marxist-Leninists on campus and a l
