This 1898 French caricature of a crowned Alphonse
de Rothschild as a greedy, predator grasping the globe in
his talon-like clutches, accurately portrays the way in which
Europe's Rothschild banking dynasty expanded its imperial
hegemony. In America today, Rothschild influence --while paramount
-- is largely hidden, with some "respected" families
and financial institutions -- not all of them Jewish -- acting
as Rothschild "fronts." Americans (and others) who
dare to challenge the Rothschild empire (and the Zionist cause)
are subjected to dirty tricks, economic boycott, harassment,
persecution -- even criminal prosecution.

JEWISH PEOPLE NOT ONLY "survived the holocaust,"
but since World War II they have emerged as a political-economic
cultural elite whose influence is rivaled by no other ethnic
group on the face of the planet.
By Michael Collins Piper
the most cursory survey of the literature indicates that numerous
"mainstream" Jewish writers and academics have reached
a remarkable conclusion: the Jewish people-particularly American
Jews-have today reached what may be a zenith of power unlike
anything yet seen in Jewish history. American Jewish scholar
Benjamin Ginsberg, writing in The Fatal Embrace: Jews
and the State, summarized it well:
the 1960s, Jews have come to wield considerable influence
in American economic, cultural, intellectual, and political
life. Jews played a central role in American finance during
the 1980s, and they were among the chief beneficiaries of
that decade's corporate mergers and reorganizations. Today,
though barely 2% of the nation's population is Jewish, close
to half its billionaires are Jews. The chief executive officers
of the three major television networks and the four largest
film studios are Jews, as are the owners of the nation's
largest newspaper chain and most influential single newspaper,
The New York Times.
the late 1960s, Jews already constituted 20% of the faculty
of elite universities and 40% of the professors of elite
law schools; today, these percentages doubtless are higher.
role and influence of Jews in American politics is equally
marked. Jews are elected to public office in disproportionate
numbers. In 1993, 10 members of the U.S. Senate and 32 members
of the House of Representatives were Jewish, three to four
times their percentage of the general population. Jews are
even more prominent in political organizations and in finance.
One recent study found that in 27 of 36 campaigns for the
United States Senate, one or both candidates relied upon
a Jewish campaign chairman or finance director.
the realm of lobbying and litigation, Jews organized what
was for many years one of Washington's most successful political
action [organizations], the American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC), and they play leadership roles in such
important public interest groups as the American Civil Liberties
Union (ACLU) and Common Cause.
role in American economic, social and political institutions
has enabled Jews to wield considerable influence in the
nation's public life ....
a general rule, what can and cannot be said in public reflects
the distribution of political power in society as Jews gained
political power ....
symbols and forms of expression that Jews find threatening
have been almost completely eliminated from schools and
other public institutions. Suits brought by the ACLU, an
organization whose leadership and membership are predominantly
Jewish, secured federal court decisions banning officially
sanctioned prayers in the public schools and creches and
other religious displays in parks and public buildings.
"Today, the Jewish people -- particularly
American Jews -- have reached what may be a zenith of power
unlike anything yet seen in the annals of Jewish history."
other Jewish American scholars have echoed Ginsberg and elaborated
on his conclusions.
example, in A Time for Healing: American Jewry Since World
War II, Edward S. Shapiro writes of the remarkable Jewish
success in achieving better education than most other Americans.
According to Shapiro:
the postwar era, America's Jews became the best educated
of any major American ethnic or religious group. By the
mid-1970s, according to Father Andrew M. Greeley's study
Ethnicity, Denomination, and Inequality (1976),
Jews averaged 14 years of education. This was a half year
more than Episcopalians, the American religious group with
the highest social standing. While less than one-half of
Americans went on to college, more than 80 percent of Jews
did so, and, as indicated by the statistics trom Harvard,
Princeton and Yale, Jews were more likely to attend elite
institutions. In 1971, for example, Jews made up 17 percent
of the students at private universities.
has also remarked on the vast wealth accumulated by a small
number of American Jews, pointing out that:
in the early 1980s, Forbes magazine published an
annual compilation of the 400 richest Americans. Strictly
based on their percentage of the general population, there
should have been about 12 Jews on this list. Instead, there
were over 100. Jews, who constituted less than 3 percent
ofthe American people, made up over one-quarter of the richest
Americans. They were over-represented by a factor of nine.
contrast, ethnic groups that greatly outnumbered Jews --
Italians, Hispanics, blacks, and Eastern Europeans -- had
few representatives on the list. The higher the category
of assets listed by Forbes, the greater the percentage
of Jews. Over 30 percent of American billionaires were Jewish
.... It was possible that Forbes even underestimated
the number of America's super-rich Jews, since many of them
had become wealthy in real estate, the most difficult of
fields to gauge assets and the easiest in which to hide
by Charles Silberman, writing in A Certain People,
focuses on the vast and wide-ranging influence of this American
to a study of the ethnic and racial backgrounds of people
listed in the 1974-75 edition of Who's Who in America,
Jews were two and a half times more likely to be included
than members of the population at large. Relative to population,
moreover, there were more than twice as
many Jews as there were people of English heritage, the
group that once dominated the American elite.
a 1971-72 analysis of a much smaller group ofleaders in
some eight fields of endeavor, the sociologists Richard
D. Alba and Gwen Moore found an even greater concentration.
Of the 545 people studied, 11.3 percent were Jews-four times
their proportion in the population as a whole....
phenomenon is not limited to the United States. Jews make
up about one percent of the population of Great Britain,
but 6 to 10 percent of the British elite; in Australia,
where Jews are 0.5 percent of the population, they constitute
5 percent of the elite .... 
"By contrast, ethnic groups that
greatly outnumbered Jews -- Italians, Hispanics, blacks,
and Eastern Europeans -- had few representatives on the
list of the 400 richest Americans."
another Jewish writer, J. J. Goldberg, in Jewish Power:
Inside the American Jewish Establishment, dares to admit
that the Jews have also accumulated immense clout as far as
the news media is concerned:
is true that Jews are represented in the media business
in numbers far out of proportion to their share of the population.
Studies have shown that while Jews make up little more than
5 percent of the working press nationwide-hardly more than
their share of the population-they make up one-fourth or
more of the writers, editors, and producers in America's
"elite media," including network news divisions,
the top newsweeklies and the four leading daily papers (New
York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington
Post, Wall Street Journal).
the fast-evolving world of media megacorporations, Jews
are even more numerous. In an October 1994 Vanity Fair
feature profiling the kingpins of the new media elite, titled
"The New Establishment," just under half of the
two dozen entrepreneurs profiled were Jews. In the view
of the magazine editors, these are America's true power
Norman F. Cantor, writing in The Sacred Chain: The History
of the Jews, has summarized Jewish success and influence
in a number of arenas:
was the Jews, by and large, not the Italians, who created
what later was called the Mafia. In the 1920s the Italians
began to replace the Jews in the New York organized crime
industry .. .. Jews were also prominent in the gambling
trade and developed Las Vegas in the 1940s. 
academics and other intellectuals played the dominant role
in the fashioning of the New Left culture of the 1960s and
1970s .... Often it was a blend of the imaginative cultural
Marxism of Benjamin Adorno and the Frankfurt School of the
1930s with the more radical side of the Freudian tradition.
highly successful American feminist movement of the 1970s
and 1980s involved Jewish leadership .... Perhaps the two
most prominent personalities in the women's movement, Gloria
Steinem and Betty Friedan, were Jewish. 
investment bankers played a major, perhaps predominant role
in the frenetic Wall Street speculative ventures of the
1980s. [In the 1980s] the skill of some Jewish
billionaires in skirting the limits of the law but somehow
emerging unscathed, with the aid of high-priced New York
Jewish attorneys and a compliant press, was remarkable.
in Berlin and Vienna before Hitler, the Jewish role in publishing
was an important one. By 1950 Jewish families owned two
of the three most influential newspapers in the United States,
the New York Times and the Washington Post.
1994 Jews were only three percent of the American population
but their impact was equivalent to an ethnic group comprising
20 percent of the population. 
overall assessment is remarkable, if not perhaps a bit eye-opening:
in Jewish history equaled this degree of Jewish accession
to power, wealth and prominence. Not in Muslim Spain, not
in early 20th century Germany, not in Israel itself, because
there were no comparable levels of wealth and power on a
world-class scale in that small country to attain.
The Morgans, the Rockefellers, the Harrirnans, the Roosevelts,
the Kennedys, the titans of bygone eras, they have been
superseded by the Jew as flawless achiever .... 
light of all of this, perhaps it is time for the Jewish people
to say "goodbye to the Holocaust" or other people
might start thinking that the Jewish people have pushed the
subject just a little bit too far.
