Given that nearly everyone begins at some level of the ‘denial’ stage, it is worthwhile to offer some specific facts that can help build the case against it. The goal, again, is to show that Jews are massively disproportionate amongst the wealthy and powerful in society. This is the core truth from which all the rest proceeds. Fortunately, as I said, this is an entirely empirical matter. Basic research will reveal the truth. Of course, the names vary from nation to nation, and they change constantly over time. A specific case must be made at a given point in time, and in a specific nation of interest. Since I am an American, and the data here is extensive, let me briefly review the case in the present-day USA. Even a cursory overview demonstrates the failure of denial.
We can separately examine four sectors of American society: politics, academia, finance, and media. In politics, we have a strong Jewish presence in all three branches of government–Congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court. Regarding the latter, we currently have 2 Jews among the 9 justices: Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer. Until the recent death of Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, the figure was 3 of 9, and if President Obama had had his way late in his final term, it would have been an astonishing 4 of 9, with Merrick Garland. (We can be sure that any future Biden nominee will be Jewish.)
The current US Congress has 38 Jews among its combined 535 members, with 10 in the Senate and 28 in the House. This constitutes around 7% of the Congressional total, versus an American Jewish population of some 6 million, or just under 2% of the nation. Hence Jews are over-represented in Congress by a factor of 3.5, and in the Senate by a factor of 5. The record high for Jewish representation, incidentally, occurred in the aftermath of the 2008 federal election, when fully 48 Jews held seats in Congress (15 Senate, 33 House).
The Biden administration, like that of Trump, Obama, Bush, and Clinton, has an extensive Jewish presence. Start with the families of Biden and Kamala Harris. Remarkably, all three of Biden’s adult children married Jews: daughter Ashley married Howard Krein, son Hunter married “filmmaker” Melissa Cohen, and now-deceased son Beau married Hallie Olivere. Correspondingly, three of Biden’s six grandchildren are half-Jews. Biracial VP Kamala Harris married a Jewish lawyer, Doug Emhoff, back in 2014; thankfully, they have no children.
Biden’s sympathies to the Jews extend, of course, to his highest-level administrative positions. Of 25 cabinet or cabinet-level positions, eight (32%) are held by Jews: Tony Blinken, Alejandro Mayorkas, Janet Yellen, Merrick Garland (yes, that Merrick Garland), Ron Klain, Avril Haines (half), Isabel Guzman (half), and Eric Lander. Other high-ranking Biden Jews include John Kerry (half), Rochelle Walensky of the CDC, Jeff Zients, Wendy Sherman, Gary Gensler of the SEC, David Cohen, “Rachel” Levine, Anne Neuberger, Andy Slavitt, Victoria Nuland, and Roberta Jacobson. And this is not to mention Judeophilic Gentiles like Jake Sullivan, or Gentiles with Jewish spouses, like Samantha Power. Below I offer some thoughts about why, exactly, this situation came to be.
What about academia? Here is one remarkable indication: It was recently noted by that of the eight Ivy League schools—Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, Brown, Cornell, and Dartmouth—fully seven have Jewish presidents. In other words, 88% of these elite schools are run by Jews. We can be sure that this Jewish orientation then extends down into provosts and deans who are disproportionately Jewish, into faculty members who are disproportionately Jewish, and into the very curriculum itself, which undoubtedly caters to liberal-left Jewish interests.
Then consider university faculty more broadly. In an article published in 2006, Schuster and Finkelstein found that “25% of research university faculty are Jewish, compared to 10% of all faculty.” An older study by Steinberg found that 17.2 percent of faculty at “high ranking” universities were Jewish. By a different assessment, Harriett Zuckerman examined just the “elite” scientific and research faculty. She found the following, by major discipline:
Law 36% Jewish Sociology 34% Jewish Economics 28% Jewish Physics 26% Jewish Poli Sci 24% Jewish
What about students? Experience shows that when Jews constitute more than just a few percent of the student body, they begin to dominate campus life. As it happens, there are nine major American universities with over 20% Jewish undergrads (in descending order: Brandeis, Tulane, CUNY-Brooklyn, Binghamton, Queens College, George Washington University, Columbia, Boston University, and Washington University-St. Louis). And there are another 23 major schools with more than 10% Jews (Maryland, American University, Brown, University of Miami, Rutgers, University of Florida, Cornell, Penn, Syracuse, Michigan, New York University, Northwestern, University of Hartford, Wisconsin, Yale, Indiana, UC-Santa Barbara, Duke, University at Albany, Harvard, Cal State-Northridge, Florida State, and USC). Hence we have 32 major American universities, representing the intellectual elite of the nation, with a hugely disproportionate Jewish presence, top to bottom. Again, this in a nation of scarcely 2% Jews.
Consider, next, the realm of finance and wealth. When we run down the list of wealthiest Americans, we find a striking fact: around half of them are Jews. Among the top ten, we find five Jews: Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Larry Ellison, and Michael Bloomberg. Of the top 50 richest men, at least 27 are Jews, including Steve Ballmer, Michael Dell, Carl Icahn, David Newhouse, Micki Arison, and Stephen Ross. The combined wealth of these 27 individuals comes to roughly $635 billion. Note: If Jews were proportionately represented among the top 50, there would be one individual; instead, there are 27.
More broadly, we can infer that this “50% rule” holds throughout much of the wealth hierarchy. In support, we may cite Benjamin Ginsberg, who wrote, “Today, though barely 2% of the [American] nation’s population is Jewish, close to half its billionaires are Jews.” At present, there are something like 615 American billionaires, which implies around 300 Jewish billionaires.
Or perhaps the figures are even worse than we suspect. A recent study of the most malicious “vulture” capitalists showed a heavy preponderance of Jewish names, far more than half. And one ranking from a few years ago of the richest hedge fund managers in the US listed 32 individuals by name; of these, at least 24 (75%) are Jews. It seems that the more we look, the worse it gets.
Even more impressively, consider total private wealth. In 2018, the total assets of all private households in the US hit $100 trillion for the first time ever. The 50% rule suggests that the 6 million or so American Jews own or control, in total, some $50 trillion. This works out to an average of $8 million for every Jewish man, woman, and child—a truly astonishing figure.
So much for Jewish wealth. More importantly, these various sectors are deeply interconnected. Jewish wealth is directly related to Jewish political influence. Take, for example, Joe Biden’s top political donors. It turns out, unsurprisingly, that the vast majority of Biden’s political donations came from Jewish billionaires. As Andrew Joyce writes, “of [his] top 22 donors, at least 18 are Jews,” followed by the list of names. This is perhaps extreme but not surprising, given that Jews overall provide at least 50% of Democratic political funding, and at least 25% of Republican funds. These are truly disturbing numbers for anyone who cares about political corruption. Note that there are literally hundreds of lobby groups, all donating to their favored candidates. And yet one lobby—the Jewish Lobby—provides 25 to 50%, or more, of major candidate funding. Imagine if, say, half of your income came from one person, and the other half came from a mix of 200 other individuals; who would you listen to? The answer is obvious.
Finally, take the media. Hollywood, as we all know, has long been a Jewish domain—reaching back to its origins in the 1910s and 1920s. It was constructed by the likes of Carl Laemmle (Universal Pictures), Adolph Zukor, Jesse Lasky, Daniel and Charles Frohman, and Samuel Goldwyn (Paramount), William Fox (Fox Films, later 20th Century Fox), and the four “Warner” Brothers—in reality, the Wonskolaser clan: Jack, Harry, Albert, and Sam. They were soon followed by Marcus Loew (MGM), William Paley (CBS), and Harry and Jack Cohn (Columbia), establishing nearly complete Jewish control over the film business.
Today the situation is little changed—and is neither disputed nor even controversial. A notable story published in the LA Times in 2008 openly proclaimed that “Jews totally run Hollywood”. It investigated every major studio and found nothing but Jewish bosses. Today the names have changed, but not the ethnicities. A recent survey of major executives or owners reveals the following:
20th Century Studios (S. Asbell) Paramount (S. Redstone) Disney Studies (A. Bergman, A. Horn) Warner Bros Studios (T. Emmerich, A. Sarnoff, R. Kavanaugh) MGM (M. De Luca) Sony Pictures (T. Rothman, S. Panitch, J. Greenstein) Lionsgate (M. Rachesky, J. Feltheimer) Relativity Media (D. Robbins) Millennium Media (A. Lerner) The Chernin Group (P. Chernin) Amblin Partners (S. Spielberg) Participant (J. Skoll, D. Linde) Sister (S. Snider, E. Murdoch) Spyglass (G. Barber) Glickmania (J. Glickman)
As before, all of these individuals are Jews. With such dominance, we should scarcely be surprised to find pro-Jewish themes repeatedly appear in film: from the Holocaust and the ‘evil Nazis,’ to the Arab and Muslim ‘terrorists,’ to the ignorant and corrupt Whites, to support for various socially and ethically degrading behavior such as casual sex, homosexuality, interracial couples and families, recreational drug use, crude materialism, and rampant multiculturalism. All these themes serve Jewish interests.
The overall media situation is even more telling. The five largest media conglomerates in the US are: 1) Disney, 2) Warner Media, 3) NBC Universal, 4) Viacom CBS, and 5) Fox Corporation. A look at their owners, largest shareholders, and top officers is revealing:
Disney: Robert Iger, executive chairman; Alan Horn, Chair, Disney Studios; Alan Braverman, exec VP; Peter Rice, chair, Content; Dana Walden, chair, ABC; Lowell Singer, senior VP.
Warner: Jason Kilar, CEO; David Levy, Pres, Turner Broadcasting; Jeff Zucker, Pres, CNN; Ann Sarnoff, CEO, Warner Pictures; Michael Lynton, chair, Warner Music (Parent company: AT&T: John Stankey, CEO).
NBC Universal: Jeff Shell, CEO; Robert Greenblatt, Chair, NBC Entertainment; Bonnie Hammer, Chair, Cable Entertainment; Noah Oppenheim, president, NBC News; Mark Lazarus, Chair, Sports; Ron Meyer, Vice Chair, NBCUniversal (Parent company: Comcast: Brian Roberts, CEO).
Viacom CBS: An unusual situation: Viacom is a “public” company but voting stock is 100% owned by Shari Redstone and the heirs of Sumner Redstone. Leading individuals include David Nevins, CCO; SusanZirinsky, president, CBS News; David Stapf, president, CBS TV.
Fox Corporation: Similar to Viacom, a public company but 39% of voting stock is owned by Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch.
All of these individuals are Jewish, with the possible exception of the Murdochs—although it seems certain that they are at least part-Jewish. And given the difficulty in ascertaining ethnicity, Jewish influence is certainly greater than shown here. Hence the above is undoubtedly a conservative estimate. It furthermore says nothing about the many Jewish underlings who implement day-to-day decisions. Once again, it’s difficult to convey the degree of dominance here. These five corporations produce the vast majority of all media consumed in the US, which includes all of the major news outlets and most of the major Hollywood studios. In fact, Jewish leadership or ownership at the top translates all throughout the organization, to middle-managers, staffers, reporters, television personalities, and editors. It has a very concrete effect on how the media is produced, what is presented, and what is not presented. It affects who we see, and who we don’t see.
And it’s not only the so-called liberal media outlets. The conservative venues also are dominated by Jewish interests—typically, via right-wing or neo-conservative Jews. Fox News, and its parent corporation Fox, owned and operated by the Murdoch family, is every bit as pro-Jewish and pro-Israel as the liberal outlets. Fox News anchors disagree vehemently with just about every liberal position, and yet, remarkably, they are fully on-board with all Jewish issues. They struggle to outdo their peers at CNN and MSNBC in their obeisance to Jewish and Israeli interests. This, again, is no coincidence. It is evidence of Jewish domination of American media, across the political spectrum and across all venues.
In addition to the above, various other media are also well-represented by American Jews. Among newspapers, the New York Times has been Jewish-owned and -managed since Adolph Ochs bought the paper in 1896; the current owner, publisher, and chairman is Arthur G. Sulzberger. US News and World Report is owned by Mort Zuckerman. Time magazine is owned by Warner Media, and its current chief editor is Edward Felsenthal. Advance Publications is a mini media conglomerate entirely owned and operated by the Jewish Newhouse family; it manages a wide array of venues including Conde Nast (Vogue, The New Yorker, GQ, Glamour, Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, Pitchfork, Wired, and Bon Appetit), Discovery Channel, Lycos, and Redditt. And in broadcast media, we have National Public Radio (NPR), which has long been a Jewish preserve; its on-air staff is unquestionably more than half Jewish.
I think we can put to rest all thoughts of denialism here.
Is Jewish Dominance Irrelevant?
If we then proceed to stage two, Irrelevance, we must counter the view that Jewish dominance is inconsequential. Again, from the naïve standpoint, Jews predominating in government, academia, finance, and media seems not to matter. These Jews are largely invisible as Jews, and their Jewishness is rarely displayed explicitly. As before, the influence is generally manifest in myriad subtle ways—in which voices and views are presented (and which not presented), which individuals are allowed to speak (and which not allowed), which values are projected as good and positive, which causes are worthy of attention, and so on.
The central issues here are (a) that Jews tend to work collectively, in their own bests interests, and (b) that they tend to have little regard for all non-Jews, and they tend to hold particular contempt for White Europeans, who have, historically speaking, proven to be their most formidable opponents. Jews work tribally, as a pack; they assist each other in attacking and undermining all perceived enemies. Jews in finance and academic Jews can count on media Jews to give them positive coverage and to downplay or bury any negative stories. Media Jews will slander an enemy even as finance Jews put the squeeze to that person’s employer. It can be very effective when multiple actors in a trillion-dollar cabal are arrayed against you.
On occasion, these dominant Jews will indeed fight with each other, as when conservative right-wing Jews spar with their liberal leftwing brethren—such as the recent rift between the rightwing Murdoch Jews and the left-wing ADL Jews, especially Jonathan Greenblatt, over comments by Tucker Carlson. But this is only an internal dispute about the best way to promote Jewish interests, nothing more. Much of current political confrontation is mere show; Democratic-Republican squabbles are meaningless when both sides are backed by wealthy Jews. And Jews across the political spectrum love to use Gentile lackeys like Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo, Chris Hayes, Sean Hannity, and yes, Tucker Carlson, to cover for them. This again serves to obscure the real power structure.
But the fact that powerful Jews work with each other, against all others, is a well-established historical fact that has been well-attested, over the centuries, by some of the West’s most brilliant thinkers. This topic literally requires a book-length treatment—see my book Eternal Strangers: Critical Views of Jews and Judaism through the Ages (2020), which is the first to fully document the historical record. It dates back over 2,000 years, at least to remarks by Hecateus of Abdera and Theophrastus circa 300 BC, proceeding to the likes of Cicero, Seneca, Tacitus, Porphyry, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Voltaire, Rousseau, Fichte, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Bakunin, Nietzsche, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Heidegger, and chess genius (and half-Jew) Bobby Fischer, among many others. It is an impressive list.
The criticisms are uniformly blunt and damning. Jews are “misanthropic and hostile to foreigners,” “the very vilest of mankind,” “look upon all other men as their enemies,” “an accursed race,” “the basest of peoples.” They are profoundly and deeply different—in a bad way—from the rest of humanity. Medieval theologians condemned the Jews for their usury and their abuse of Christians and Christianity. Luther called them “a heavy burden, a plague, a pestilence, a sheer misfortune,” adding that “we are at fault in not slaying them.” For Voltaire, they “display an irreconcilable hatred against all nations”; for Rousseau, the Jewish race was “always a foreigner amongst other men.” German philosopher Johann Herder called them “a widely diffused republic of cunning usurers.” Kant saw them as “a nation of deceivers.” Schopenhauer was especially blunt: “scum of humanity—but great master of lies.” Heidegger captured the situation well in just three words: “planetary master criminals”.
This 2,000-year history of hatred and contempt for the rest of humanity is played out in the present day, though with much stealth and deception. Jews often work in the background, hidden, out of the limelight; they are, as Hitler said, the “wire-pullers” (Drahtzieher) of contemporary society, using money and power to steer events in their favor. History tells us that Jews will stoop to anything—the most heinous, the most egregious, the most unethical—to promote their ends. Even war: there is an equally long and damning history of Jewish involvement in wars, from the Jewish-Roman wars in the first and second centuries to the present-day “war on terror”. This is not speculation; all these facts are well-attested and well-documented. We need only do a basic bit of reading, from reputable sources.
The bottom line, of course, is that Jewish over-representation in major sectors of society does matter—it matters very much. Arguably it is the root cause of virtually all our present-day social problems, all of which have been created or exacerbated by powerful Jews. We can scarcely imagine what life could be like without their manipulating and malevolent presence.
