THE NEW JERUSALEM : 1ST CHAPTER

1st Chapter from Michael Collins Piper's book The New Jerusalem (2005)

America’s “New Elite”
A Candid & Sympathetic Overview
of That Most Difficult Topic

. . .

On August 29, 1897 the First Zionist Congress meeting in Basel, Switzerland approved a resolution which declared simply:

. . .The aim of Zionism is to create for the Jewish people a home in Palestine . . .

. . .Much of the world looked with favor upon the theory behind this resolution, even including (perhaps most especially) anti-Jewish elements in Europe and elsewhere who saw the removal of Jewish people from the confines of their respective national borders as a solution to that age-old problem often gently referred to in literature as “The Jewish Question.” It has long been forgotten — even suppressed — that among the most vocal proponents of the founding of a Jewish state were indeed those who had come to be known as “anti-Semites.”
. . .Ultimately, in 1948, a new Zionist state known as “Israel” did come into being in Palestine, but — as we today know all too well — the circumstances surrounding the birth of that nation brought generations of tragedy and conflict to the region, problems which today, as this is written, have literally placed the entire world on the brink of nuclear conflagration.
. . .Yet, despite the founding of the Zionist state, American Zionists cling heartily to America, rather than re-locating to the State of Israel and fulfilling the Zionist dream. In fact — as the record shows, and that is the topic of this volume — America has effectively emerged as The New Jerusalem, the center of Zionist wealth and power. The State of Israel is but a distraction, a tiny geographic entity that may or may not survive. As such, we now see a new focus in the Zionist outlook. Zionism, in short, rules America and America under the Zionist thumb (or so it now seems) seeks to rule the world.
. . .Obviously, when addressing a “controversial” thesis such as this, it is appropriate to cite what are deemed “respectable” and “responsible” sources. As such, when tackling the most uncomfortable topic of Zionist power in America and its consequences, it seems most fitting to go right to the source: one of the most respected newspapers in Israel.

. . .On August 20, 2004, Israel’s Ha’aretz published a remarkable commentary by Avi Beker entitled “The Golden Age of U.S. Jewry.” Beker reflected on the then-forthcoming September celebration — very much noted — of the 350th anniversary of the founding of the Jewish community in America. The Israeli newspaper noted that historian Paul Johnson, described as “being known for his sympathy for Israel,” had suggested that “the story of the expansion and strengthening of American Jewry in the 20th century is no less important than the establishment of the State of Israel, and even more so.”
. . .Although, the establishment of Israel gave the Jewish people a sovereign homeland, Ha’aretz says that Johnson sees America as having a special place in the lore of Jewish history: “American Jewry,” says the Israeli newspaper, “has attained an unprecedented status in the power it has acquired for itself to shape the policy of the No. 1 world power.”
. . .Ha’aretz writes: “There is no precedent for such profound integration into all areas of life, and to political and political influence as great as that of American Jews. . . . It is now clear that the 350 years of Jewish exile in America mark a golden age never before experienced in Jewish history.”1
. . .So there it is . . . from the pages of one of the most influential newspapers of Israel. This is not the “ranting” of a “crazed anti-Semite.” This is a Jewish newspaper, published in Israel, hailing the ascendancy of the Jewish community in America.
. . .What then precisely does this extraordinary Jewish influence constitute? How much power does the Jewish community hold in American life? Do — as some say — “the Jews control America”? In this volume we will present a wide variety of material — largely from Jewish sources — which will provide the reader the information to judge for himself.
. . .In 1937, muckraker Ferdinand Lundberg created a stir with a book entitled America’s Sixty Families. His book was the first comprehensive look at the rising accumulation of vast wealth and influence by a small group of Americans — many of them intermarried families or otherwise connected through business relationships — who had come to dominate the American republic.
. . .Lundberg opened that volume by making an assertion that — while quite true — opened the eyes of the American reading public to a reality that perhaps few had recognized:

. . .The United States is owned and dominated today by a hierarchy of its sixty richest families, buttressed by no more than ninety families of lesser wealth.
. . .Outside this plutocratic circle there are perhaps three hundred and fifty other families, less defined in development and in wealth, but accounting for most of the incomes of $100,000 or more that do not accrue to members of the inner circle.
. . .These families are the living center of the modern industrial oligarchy which dominates the United States, functioning discreetly under a de jure democratic form of government behind which a de facto government, absolutist and plutocratic in its lineaments, has gradually taken form since the Civil War.
. . .This de facto government is actually the government of the United States — informal, invisible, shadowy. It is the government of money in a dollar democracy.
. . .Under their acquisitive fingers, and in their possession, the sixty families hold the richest nation ever fashioned in the workshop of history . . .
. . .The outstanding American proprietors of today tower historically over the proud aristocracy that surrounded Louis XIV, Czar Nicholas, Kaiser Wilhelm, and the Emperor Franz Joseph, and wield vastly greater power.2

. . .At the time Lundberg was writing, there was a solid core of substantial Jewish wealth among the “Sixty Families” listed. Among the 60 families that Lundberg ranked by wealth, the Guggenheims of smelting and copper fame were listed as 13th, following closely by the following banking families: the Lehmans at 18th, the Warburgs at 26th, Mortimer Schiff at 44th, George Blumenthal of Lazard Freres at 48th, department store tycoon Michael Friedsam came in at 50th followed by Sears & Roebuck’s Julius Rosenwald at 58th. Banker and war profiteer and behind-the-scenes political “fixer” Bernard M. Baruch came in at 59th place, just making a spot in “America’s Sixty Families” as dubbed by Lundberg.3
. . .Times did change, however, and Jewish wealth and influence was on the ascendancy, but remained largely a topic that was very much unspoken, then as today.
. . .Lundberg’s book, today, remains a valuable research work for students of American history. But be warned: Lundberg was quite naturally,and we can understand why, rather inclined to down play the significant role that Jewish interests were playing within the American plutocracy and its domination of the United States political, economic, and social affairs. Yet, his work was a landmark contribution, whatever its demerits.

. . .In 1968 Lundberg came back with a sequel to America’s Sixty Families. This new volume, The Rich and the Super-Rich, was an overview of the current state of affairs in the secret world of the superrich. In The Rich and the Super-Rich, Lundberg made the rather interesting assessment of the situation:

. . .Most Americans — citizens of the wealthiest, most powerful and most ideal-swathed country in the world — by a very wide margin own nothing more than their household goods, a few glittering gadgets such as automobiles and television sets (usually purchased on the installment plan, many at second hand) and the clothes on their backs. A horde if not a majority of Americans live in shacks, cabins, hovels, shanties, hand-me-down Victorian eyesores, rickety tenements and flaky apartment buildings. . . . At the same time, a relative handful of Americans are extravagantly endowed, like princes in the Arabian Nights tales.4

. . .Although Lundberg was quite right in his overall assessment, he fell down on one key point: Today’s elite: Princes they are — but not Arabian.
. . .The American media talks about the wealth of the Arab sheiks and of the oil riches of the Middle East, but the accumulated wealth of the American Jewish community — and the political influence that comes with it in every major city (and certainly in small cities and towns across America) dwarfs that of those Arabian princes.
. . .America’s “New Elite” today are unquestionably the wealthy and powerful Jewish families who — unlike the Rockefellers, the Morgans, the Roosevelts, the Kennedys, the Vanderbilts and the other “princes” of previous eras — have a considerably lower public profile than the Gentile elite of the past.
. . .While it is — to a certain extent—freely admitted that there is a powerful “Israeli lobby” in official Washington, sometimes even referred to by less cautious persons as the “Jewish lobby,” the public image of this lobby is one devoted exclusively to the interests of the state of Israel.


. . .Jewish newspapers freely discuss the issue of the influence of the Jewish community and its impact on U.S. foreign policy, but even so-called mainstream” newspapers and magazines themselves occasionally delve into the subject.
. . .“Yes,” they say, “the Israeli lobby is powerful, but it’s just another lobby like the gun lobby or the American Association of Retired Persons. American Jews have as much right to lobby on behalf of Israel as Greek-Americans and Arab-Americans have the right to lobby for causes around which their own communities rally.” Numerous books have been written about the power of the Israeli lobby, and for anyone to deny the clout of that lobby is political correctness run amuck.
. . .What few Americans are aware of, however — something the Jewish community would prefer to be kept under wraps — is the growing financial, cultural and social clout of the American Jewish community. While there are certainly many poor Jews, the truth is that American Jews are emerging — if they haven’t won the title already — as contenders for the title of “the American elite,” bar none. They are “America’s New Elite.”
. . .American Jews are indeed the modern-day equivalents of the princes in the tales of the Arabian Nights. And while the Jewish “princes” (and “princesses”) may not constitute a majority, per se, of the billionaires or the super-rich on the famous “Forbes 400,” their combined wealth certainly rivals (or even, most likely, surpasses) that of the non-Jewish elite.
. . .In fact, if anything, the Jewish elites are bound by their devotion to Jewish interests, as the sources cited in these pages will often confirm.
. . .It is difficult to gauge wealth or “influence” (whatever either constitutes) but the facts assembled in these pages demonstrates, beyond any question, that the American Jewish elite — America’s New Elite — have wealth and influence far beyond their numbers in many, many ways.
. . .Recognition of Jewish power — or dare we say “rejection” of Jewish power — is a bipartisan affair. A host of well-known American elected officials and other policy makers have been heard to make candid comments about Jewish power:

. . . President George Bush’s Secretary of State James Baker was reported as saying to a colleague in a confidential discussion, “Fuck the Jews. They don’t vote for us anyway.” The words wereblazoned as a headline in an Israeli newspaper which, not surprisingly, portrayed him as an anti-Semite. But Baker was unwittingly echoing others. During the AWACS debate Gerald Ford

was enlisted by the Reagan White House. In a telephone conversation with one Republican senator who had been tracked down (at dinner with Jewish leaders, though Ford did not know this), the former president asked, “Are we going to let the fucking Jews run American foreign policy?” And Ford in turn echoed President Carter, who had told some of his closest colleagues in the spring of 1980, “If I get back in, I’m going to fuck the Jews.”5

. . .In light of Carter’s remark, it is no surprise to learn that William Rubenstein, a right-wing pro-Zionist sociologist, has reported that “a very well-placed source” told him that “75 percent” of “the leaders of America’s Zionist organizations . . . supported Reagan over Carter.”6
. . .In that vein, considering the fact that liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans alike have occasionally found common ground in raising questions about Jewish power, we might also recall the comment by the famed writer H. G. Wells, who remarked: “There is room for some very serious research into the question why anti-Semitism emerges in every country the Jews reside in.”7
. . .In the meantime, the major media in America, which is, as we shall see — according to Jewish sources — largely Jewish dominated, has focused on “Asian money” in American elections. It’s become a genuine “scandal” and exciting grist for the media mill. Age-old anti-Asian stereotypes of the type that were popular during the U.S. war against Japan are once again freely coming into play.
. . .Despite this, self-styled “anti-hate” groups such as the Anti- Defamation League (ADL) have had little to say about it. Perhaps that’s precisely because the ADL likes the focus on the “Asian money.”
. . .And there’s a reason for this: Asian-Americans (both native and naturalized) are quietly saying (but the media isn’t reporting it) that the real “foreign money” scandal involves not Asian money, but the heavy-handed influence of money from the Israel-obsessed American Jewish community and American Jews living in Israel (not to mention Israelis themselves) who want to impact U.S. foreign policy toward Israel.
. . .Writing in the January 29, 1996 issue of New York magazine, writer Philip Weiss — who loudly and proudly proclaims his Jewish heritage — pointed out that discussion of the role of Jewish money in politics is perceived to be politically incorrect. Weiss put it bluntly: “When the NRA exercises political power, it’s a hot-button issue. When Jewish money plays a part, discussing it is anti-Semitic.”
8

. . .There’s no question about it: This is real political clout. Jewish money and Jewish power is a very real influence in American life.
. . .But as we shall see, Jewish influence in America goes far beyond what people generally refer to as “the Israeli lobby” or “the Jewish lobby” (in discussing the impact Jewish money and lobbying has on U.S. foreign policy making). Jewish influence is much, much bigger than that — and it is the most explosive political secret in American political and cultural affairs today.
. . .The possible consequences of this immense Jewish power in America were faced head on by Jewish historian Benjamin Ginsberg in his remarkable book, The Fatal Embrace: Jews and the State, in which book Ginsberg addresses the question:
. . .“Why is it that during so many different times and in so many different places, Jews have achieved enormous status, wealth, and power only to be cast down, driven out — or worse?”9
. . .Ginsberg says that his own research convinced him that famed Jewish philosopher and writer Hannah Arendt was correct in her assertion that the historic and repeated rise and fall of the Jewish people could best be understood by viewing the traditional relationship between Jews and the nation-states in which they lived. According to Ginsberg:

. . .Jews frequently sought the protection of the state. For their own purposes, rulers often were happy to accommodate the Jews in exchange for the services that the latter could provide.
. . .Much followed from the relationship between Jews and states, and, as an outgrowth, some of the most important states in the modern world were built or strengthened.
. . .As a result of this relationship, moreover, Jews sometimes achieved great power. Their relationship with the state, however, also exposed Jews to new hatred and antagonisms. For the Jews, under some circumstances, the embrace of the state proved to be fatal. These considerations are not simply of historical interest. They are also central to understanding the past — and potential future — of Jews in America.
10

. . .Thus, the title of Ginsberg’s book and that to which it refers: “the fatal embrace” of the state — the nation and its mechanisms of political power — by the Jews in the course of accumulating vast wealth.
. . .Ginsberg has summarized the quandary that both American Jews and their non-Jewish fellow Americans find themselves in as a consequence of the rising influence of Jewish power in America. His words are profound indeed. Ginsberg writes:

. . .Though Jews have learned to look, talk and dress like other Americans, they are not fully assimilated either in their own minds or in the eyes of their neighbors. . . . To make matters worse, Jews often, secretly or not so secretly, conceive themselves to be morally and intellectually superior to their neighbors.
. . . Indeed, Jews are extremely successful outsiders who sometimes have the temerity to rub it in.11

. . .Considering this, it is appropriate to take a look at the manner in which Ginsberg has summarized, for his own part, the wide-ranging aspects of Jewish power in America. His overview gives us a starting point upon which we can build and examine, in detail, the specific nature of Jewish power in America. Ginsberg writes:

. . .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 lawschools; 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, ten members of the United States Senate and thirty-two 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 twenty-seven of thirty-six 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. Several Jews also played very important roles in the 1992 Democratic presidential campaign.
. . .After the Democrats’ victory, President Clinton appointed a number of Jews to prominent positions in his administration.
. . .Their role in American economic, social and political institutions has enabled Jews to wield considerable influence in the nation’s public life. The most obvious indicator of this influence is the $3 billion in direct military and economic aid provided to Israel by the United States each year and, for that matter, the like amount given to Egypt since it agreed to maintain peaceful relations with Israel.
. . .That fully three-fourths of America’s foreign aid budget is devoted to Israel’s security interests is a tribute in considerable measure to the lobbying prowess of AIPAC and the importance of the Jewish community in American politics. . . .
. . .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, politicians who indulged in anti-Semitic tactics were labeled extremists and exiled to the margins of American politics.
. . .Similarly, 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 crèches and other religious displays in parks and public buildings.12

. . .At this juncture — considering all that we have learned thus far — it seems appropriate to discuss the very real question: “Why does it matter how much economic, political, and cultural clout that the Jewish people have accumulated in America?”
. . .The fact is that there will be some — both “Country Club Republicans” who worship at the altar of Mammon, along with self-styled “liberals” who revel in “minority achievement,” for example — who will read this slender volume and respond by saying, “Well, this is a free country. It’s a tribute to the Jewish people that, through their hard work and intellect, they have achieved this success.”
. . .In some respects, that’s a hard proposition to argue with. However, it bears pointing out that accumulation of wealth and political power does not mean that such a conglomeration gives any one ethnic group the right to dominate a nation’s political system simply because it has the means to do so. And the fact is that the Jewish elite in America now have the means to do so — and they don’t hesitate to do it.
. . .A prime (and graphic) example of how that power has been exercised is all too evident in America’s ongoing and tragic debacle in Iraq.
. . .We are not here to say that “all of the Jews in America” wanted the United States to invade Iraq in the spring of 2002. Quite the contrary, some of the most outspoken and eloquent critics of U.S. intervention in Iraq were American Jews. But the fact remains that — on the whole — the most influential and critically placed organizations and individuals promoting the war in Iraq, through public relations efforts, media spin and outright political pressure, were American Jews and American Jewish organizations acting specifically on behalf of the interests of Israel.
. . .This is a topic well beyond the scope of this book, but it was addressed in some detail in this author’s previous work, The High Priests of War. Suffice it to say that when U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D-Virginia) stated frankly that, in his opinion, the American Jewish community was influential enough to stop the drift toward war, he was absolutely correct, despite the outraged media frenzy that came on the heels of his remarks.

. . .Beyond question, the subject of Jewish economic power is not a matter limited to examination by what we might loosely term “anti-Semites.” The truth is that even the most cursory study of Jewish history focuses extensively on Jewish wealth and influence. For example, the New York-based Schocken Books, which publishes books of Jewish interest, featured its 1975 release, Economic History of the Jews.
. . .In that extensive volume, the editor, Nahum Gross, pointed out, quite frankly, that, for example, “colonial trade in the early modern period and brokerage and banking, especially investment banking, in recent times are highly oligopolistic industries, and their history is indeed the story of a rather small number of leading firms. The delineation of family ties and alliances among them is therefore also strictly relevant; and at least the Jewish historian will be curious to know who of these leading entrepreneurs were Jews.”13
. . .So, therefore, it is not at all inappropriate to examine which Jews and Jewish families and financial interests were (or are) predominant in any given arena, charges of “anti-Semitism” notwithstanding.
. . .And in regard to that accusation of “anti-Semitism,” which often surrounds the examination of Jewish wealth, it seems appropriate to refer to Jewish historian Bernard Lazare’s classic study of that subject, and particularly his inquiry into “anti-Semitism” stimulated by what he calls “economic causes.” Lazare correctly points out that because of a variety of factors influencing anti-Semitism over many centuries, the Jews — precisely because of anti-Semitism — were forced to bond together:

. . .The Jew . . . increases his advantage by uniting with his coreligionists possessed of similar virtues, and thus augments his powers by acting in common with his brethren; the inevitable result being that they out-distance their rivals in the pursuit of any common end . . . The Jews stand united as one.
. . .This is the secret of their success. Their solidarity is all the stronger in that it goes so far back. Its very existence is denied, and yet it is undeniable. The links in the chain have been forged in the course of ages until the flight of centuries has made man unconscious of their existence.14

. . .As such, we perhaps do indeed have a better and more sympathetic understanding of the origin of Jewish clannishness — call it “togetherness” — that has enabled a relatively small group of people, under siege, to develop, working together, a powerful economic class that is bound by its religious and cultural heritage. Perhaps anti-Semitism has indeed been a driving force behind that which has resulted in the emergence in the United States (and worldwide) of a singularly influential group of people.

. . .Undoubtedly, an examination of what might be called “anti-Semitic” literature, does indeed focus on Jewish economic might. American industrialist
Henry Ford’s now-infamous series The International Jew comes to mind immediately. Ford’s work focused on the tentacles of Jewish power in a wide ranging array of various economic and cultural arenas and caused great consternation within the Jewish community. But while Ford was damned for his efforts, there were few attempts to actually refute the specific facts laid forth in his work.
. . .More recent so-called “anti-Semitic” works, such as Jewish Supremacism, by controversial Louisiana political figure David Duke, have not so much focused on Jewish power, per se, as upon Jewish ideology and religious teachings. Duke’s book relied almost exclusively on Jewish sources to outline the role that Jewish interests have played in shaping modern-day world affairs from a geopolitical strategic standpoint. He has pinpointed the preeminent Jewish role in the Bolshevik movement in Russia as well as the fine hand of Jewish influence behind social and cultural revolution in the United States and the West, often to the denigration of traditional values and understandings.
. . .What’s more, Duke has gone so far as to expand his study by taking a close look at Jewish religious teachings that have indeed bound the Jewish people more closely and, at the same time, driven wedges between them and others. In the end Duke sees the Jewish people as having sought what he calls “Jewish Supremacism.” Although the Jewish people have established a state of their own in Israel, Duke notes, they seem determined to have their influence felt worldwide, feeling themselves — and saying as much in their own writings — that they are supreme.
. . .One cannot read Duke’s book — which is carefully documented — without concluding that this is indeed precisely the ideology behind the leadership of the Jewish community in America (and worldwide) today.

. >.For whatever the cause, anti-Semitism has indeed played a major role in shaping the mindset of the Jewish people. They have been effectively forced into the position (or otherwise adopted the status) of “outsider” and have chosen largely to remain the outsider, despite their elite status in American society. As the “outsider,” the Jewish people have an overview of the “alien” society in which they function and from this vantage point have been able to see opportunities that are otherwise invisible to those who cannot, in the classic sense, “see the forest for the trees.”
. . .All of this, over the centuries, has permitted Jewish individuals — working within a Jewish network — to be in the forefront of economic and political revolution and, as a direct consequence, they have been able to play a major part in influencing the course of society.
. . .Another factor which should be kept in mind is that the Jews have generally been, almost invariably (with few exceptions), an urban people, far removed from the land and agriculture. In contrast, all European societies and peoples are hardly more than one, two or three generations removed from the farm and its rural ethic of construction and creation, of building civilization out of the wilderness.
. . .This contrast in heritage has, inevitably, led to a clash between the Jewish people and others, precisely because, by virtue of their urban tendencies, the Jews have become entrenched in the financial arena — money-lending, usury, banking, call it what you will — and as such have become, not unexpectedly, the arbiters of the rural future.
. . .The historic conflict between agriculture and finance has always been a dynamic that has been an underlying factor in anti-Semitism in whatever country: whether it be Germany or the United States, where the populist movement of the late 19th century featured anti-Semitic rhetoric quite prevalently.
. . .So, again, we see anti-Semitism as a direct consequence of non- Jewish opposition to Jewish influence which has, in itself, risen to new heights precisely because the Jewish people have formed a unique “group dynamic” that can hardly be found in such a thriving fashion in any other ethnic formation on the face of the planet. Anti-Semitism, we might say, has, in its own way, begot Jewish success and power, which, in turn, has begot even more anti-Semitism, precisely because the Jews — as a group — have established themselves in a position to shape (even destroy) non-Jews whose futures literally lie in the hands of Jewish power-brokers.
. . .In this regard, we must address the topic of “the Holocaust,” referring to the events of World War II that have been continually and, without ending, been memorialized in thousands of books, films, songs, poems, television shows, and newspaper and magazine articles, in the half century that followed the end of the world conflagration that resulted in the deaths of countless millions — far many more millions that the six million Jews we have been told were lost at the hands of a genocidal Nazi regime.
. . .Although a dedicated and growing “Holocaust Revisionist” movement has made great inroads in raising serious questions about specific facts and details of the events of that period known as “the Holocaust,”— thanks in large part due to the efforts of Willis A. Carto and the once-vibrant Institute for Historical Review (subsequently destroyed from within by agents working for Jewish interests determined to silence the institute) — most people remain convinced that the Jews were the singular victims of what is virtually hailed as “the greatest tragedy in history — bar none,” precisely because it was a tragedy that was said to have targeted “God’s Chosen People.” As such, there is a great deal of residual sympathy for the Jewish people — but it is beginning to diminish as more and more people, frankly, get “tired of hearing about the Holocaust” and become aware of the current efforts of historical Revisionist journals such as The Barnes Review, which has not feared to address the topic.
. . .The constant repetition — almost cult-like — of Holocaust lore is emerging (and some Jewish leaders have not been afraid to say so) as an almost integral part of the Jewish “group think” and, as a direct result, being incorporated, in many respects, into the Jewish religion itself.
. . .And that, alone, is another aspect of the Jewish mind-set that makes the Jewish people unique. Although dozens — perhaps hundreds — of other ethnic groups, sects and peoples have been subjected to their own unique “holocausts” throughout the course of history only the Jewish people have been so devoted to memorializing their own disasters. At the same time, the Jewish people (in organized fashion), have continued to use “the Holocaust” (and other tragedies, real and imagined) as a mechanism to place demands on the world as a whole. After all, isn’t that why the state of Israel was established — as a means of atoning for the Jewish losses during World War II?

. . .Certainly, in the end, the cause-and-effect debate over the question of anti-Semitism — or “The Jewish Problem” as it has been known throughout history — has many angles that are far beyond the purview of this volume. Some “anti-Semites” may even contend that we have been far too sympathetic to the Jewish people and not conscious enough of Jewish activities and attitudes that have created the phenomenon of anti-Semitism. But that’s a debate for another place and time.
. . .So, for our purposes here, suffice it to say, the truth is that whatever the ultimate origin of Jewish supremacy (at least in the economic, cultural and political spheres of influence in the United States), it is a fact that cannot be denied. The truth of Jewish supremacy in America is found in countless volumes and much literature by Jewish writers who can hardly be classed as “anti-Semites.”
. . .With this in mind, let us move forward and examine what Jewish academics
and authorities say about Jewish power in America. By way of a preface, however, we include the following material relevant to our study:

• An overview of the now-infamous “Enron” scandal. While the media gave great fanfare to this debacle, even the most cursory examination of Enron demonstrates hidden aspects of Zionist power in America, if only because the “Jewish connection” to Enron remains one of the great secrets of our day;
• A study of the remarkable INSLAW affair — a scandal which demonstrated the raw clout of the Zionist lobby in manipulating the U.S. Justice Department and the federal court system.
• A profile of America’s “royal family” — the Bronfmans, who are, beyond question, the most powerful and well-established of the Jewish families who reign supreme in America today. As early “colonial” satellites of the long-established Rothschild empire of Europe, the Bronfmans constitute the often ugly face of Zionist power in America.
• Next, we will explore equally sordid details surrounding two major American media empires whose wide-ranging influence personifies the vast reach of the Zionist elite who rule the Media Monopoly.
• As an interesting interlude we will take a look at the little-known story of Donald Trump, the flamboyant real estate and casino tycoon. Although not Jewish, the record reflects that Trump owes his fame and fortune to the patronage of some powerful Zionist fortunes.

• Following that is a wide-ranging overview of the names, faces and financial interests of the well-known (and not-so-well-known) Jewish families whose accumulation of wealth and power is staggering. This is the first time EVER (outside a small magazine read only in the highest circles) that these names have been published in one place together — and a revealing summary it is indeed.

Wrapping it all up, we at last reach the core of this volume, its very foundation — the cold, hard facts and figures about the reality of Zionist power in America. The details presented speak for themselves. It is not “anti-Semitic” or “anti-Jewish” to bring forth these facts, particularly since the sources of the information are (with perhaps one exception) exclusively Jewish. And — with the possible exception of Lenni Brenner — none of the quite respectable sources cited are what Zionist critics have called “self-hating” Jews, a term which has been recklessly applied to Jewish Americans who have dared to raise questions about the misdeeds of Zionist Israel, as has Brenner.
. . .There will, of course, be many people who will be most uncomfortable reading this volume, but that is only because they have fallen victim to what has been called “political correctness.”
. . .The truth is that Jewish newspapers and magazines freely and openly discuss — even brag about — Jewish power in America. Now is the opportunity for non-Jews to see precisely what it is that these Jewish sources have been bragging about.
. . .Are all of these material riches — as Jewish philosophers contend — actually an affirmation of God’s blessing upon the Jewish people?
. . .Have the Zionist elite — as the evidence assembled in this volume suggests — emerged as “Those Who Reign Supreme”? Have they finally established America as The New Jerusalem?
. . .Is this good for America? Is it good for the world? May non-Jewish people share in this wealth?
. . .Is there an alternative?
