Rothschild Influence 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.

 

Revenge of the Neanderthal


THE POSTWAR NEANDERTHAL TRIUMPH



THE 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

Even 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:


Since 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.
In 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.
The 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.
In 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.
Their role in American economic, social and political institutions has enabled Jews to wield considerable influence in the nation's public life ....
As a general rule, what can and cannot be said in public reflects the distribution of political power in society as Jews gained political power ....
Religious 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.[1]

 


"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."

 

Many other Jewish American scholars have echoed Ginsberg and elaborated on his conclusions.
For 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:


In 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.[2]

Shapiro has also remarked on the vast wealth accumulated by a small number of American Jews, pointing out that:


Beginning 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.
By 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 wealth. [3]


Research by Charles Silberman, writing in A Certain People, focuses on the vast and wide-ranging influence of this American Jewish elite:


According 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.
In 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....
The 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 .... [4]

 


"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."

 

Yet 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:


It 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).
In 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 elite. [5]


Professor Norman F. Cantor, writing in The Sacred Chain: The History of the Jews, has summarized Jewish success and influence in a number of arenas:


It 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. [6]
Jewish 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. [7]
The 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. [8]
Jewish investment bankers played a major, perhaps predominant role in the frenetic Wall Street speculative ventures of the 1980s.[9] [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. [10]
As 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. [11]
In 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. [12]

Cantor's overall assessment is remarkable, if not perhaps a bit eye-opening:

Nothing 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.[13] 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 .... [14]



In 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.
