— by James M. (“Mel”) Rockefeller with Jeff Gates, 28th August 2017
More than a half-century ago, my father Nelson Rockefeller, then serving his first of four terms as Governor of New York (1959-1973), saw that education would be democracy’s “last line of defense” against those he described as sharing a “tireless genius for crisis.” The August 12th crisis in Charlottesville offers a teaching moment with the potential to expose those seeking to fracture the U.S. with a series of crises.
It’s difficult to imagine a more appropriate place for their ‘outing’ than a town that serves as home not only to the University of Virginia but also its founder, Thomas Jefferson, and his neighbor, James Madison. As Founding Fathers, they sought to protect democracy from those who would rule by Divine Right and those who would have us governed by the papacy. They failed to anticipate that those whose rights we protect—with the freedom of speech, media, assembly and religion—would deploy serial crises as a means to amass wealth and influence while jeopardizing our freedom. To assess that trend, let’s look back 100 years and work our way forward to today.
Those who sold humanity on class politics founded the Soviet Union in 1917. In a June 13, 2013 visit to Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, Vladimir Putin pointed out that the first Soviet government was “80-85 percent Jewish.” After seeding class politics in Russia, the (predominantly Jewish) Frankfurt School marketed identity politics—race studies, gender studies, feminist studies, Latino studies, Native American studies. Rather than making out of many, one (E Pluribus Unum), identity politics and crises fracture one nation into many—often by fomenting hate such as what was on display in Charlottesville.
President Putin’s reference to ‘Jewish” requires an explanation. He is referring both to the Hasidic sect known as Chabad Lubavitch founded in Russia of the 1770s and to those who conceived the U.S.S.R., financed its revolution, murdered Russia’s ruling family and, after eight decades of foreseeable human misery, crafted the privatization policies that enriched the same parties. The same Zionists that in May 1948 persuaded Christian Zionist Democrat Harry Truman to recognize their enclave in Palestine as a legitimate state also induced Christian Zionist Republican George Bush to invade Iraq in March 2003 as a legitimate means to achieve Zionist goals for Greater Israel.
Class politics (Marxism), identity politics and hate-mongering trace to a common source. You can recognize this source by the consistency of their results. British rock musician Roger Waters of Pink Floyd points to their 50-year military occupation of Palestine. Others point to their hate-evoking brutality in 1948 that expelled more than 700,000 people who now comprise a refugee population of five million that are told they can never return home.
The cruelty of their occupation and their massive land grab in 1967 ensured hatred for the U.S. as we appeared to be the occupiers when the Israel lobby induced us to finance and arm Zionists and protect them from diplomatic censure—no matter how inhumane their conduct. Their weapon-ization of hate obscures how much influence they’ve amassed inside our government. With a closer look at the serial crises that preceded the hate-fest in Charlottesville, we can see how long this manipulation has been ongoing in plain sight and, to date, with legal impunity.
If the source of this hate-mongering is not exposed and addressed, what we now see emerging could prove worse—far worse—than the human misery experienced in the oppressive Soviet Union. The same democracy that enabled demonstrations in Charlottesville also enables those who would use the force of law to silence anyone who points in their direction. Not content with the protection of law in 45 states, their lobby sought the passage in 2009 of a federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights described their proposal as “a menace to civil liberties.”
As enacted, the law includes “bias-motivated crimes” where there is “evidence of speech, beliefs or expressive conduct.” While there’s no sign as yet of the federal thought police, the law authorizes the hiring of additional personnel to “prevent and respond to alleged violations.” Reminiscent of Minority Report, a 2002 thriller starring Tom Cruise as a “pre-crime” enforcer, the danger lies in the all-pervasive influence of those who traffic in (a) identity politics, (b) provoking hate, and (c) possess a “tireless genius for crisis.” Armed with the potential to criminalize dissent, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) boasts of training more than 100,000 law enforcement personnel to identify and silence those it considers problematic.
The ADL threat to civil liberties is not to be lightly dismissed. While researching Zionist influence for the 2008 release, Guilt By Association, a colleague used the word “Jew” in a Google search and received in return a message in his inbox directly from ADL calling him an anti-Semite for use of that common noun in an online search. As Roger Waters sings in one of Pink Floyd’s famous lyrics, “we don’t need no thought control.” Yet that is the direction we’re heading with the (predominantly Jewish) senior leadership in search engines, mainstream media, popular culture and, as I show below, in the cost-effective weaponization of social media to produce the Trump presidency.
Hate As A Weapon
The hate-mongering of racism traces its roots to the same parties who induced us to embrace today’s Clash of Civilizations as a plausible sequel to the Cold War narrative that pitted the capitalist U.S. against Soviet and Chinese communists. Yet only a few decades later—after we spent $25 trillion-plus on an earlier (highly profitable) Clash packaged as the Cold War—we find this outcome:
- A majority of the Russian oligarchs who emerged from post-Marxist Russia qualified for a “right of return” to Israel (similar to the U.S., Russia is less than two percent Jewish).
- Communist China has since emerged with more billionaires than the capitalist U.S. (594 to 535).
- While the U.S. was waging unwinnable debt-financed wars, China was emerging as the next hegemon financed in large part with U.S. purchasing power we provided for use by the authoritarians in Beijing consistent with a “consensus” economic model that was certain to generate that outcome.
While visiting a library in Europe, I found illustrations showing that the robes worn by secretive Ku Klux Klan members in the U.S. are the same as those worn by members of secretive Sephardic societies that were expelled from Spain in 1492. That led to a search for other clues. For example:
- When a Dutch rabbi sought to dispel as anti-Semitic the publication of reports claiming that many slave-traders were Jewish, he discovered that the claim was correct.
- Lost in the current debate on the Confederacy is the fact that Judah Benjamin, the first Jewish U.S. Senator, served as Attorney General to Confederate President Jefferson Davis and then as Secretary of War and Secretary of State. Known as the “brains of the Confederacy,” he encouraged Davis to lead southerners into a self-inflicted holocaust rightly portrayed as a Lost Cause as the South waged an unwinnable war involving carnage on an unprecedented scale against an industrialized, united and wealthy North resulting in an estimated 650,000 casualties, more than all other U.S. wars combined.
- The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded in 1909; in 1914, Joel Spingarnbecame chairman and recruited for its board (Jewish) leaders Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf and Rabbi Stephen Wise. Kivie Kaplan served as president from 1966 until 1975 when the NAACP gained its first Black president.
Racial identity provides a means to catalyze a Clash that can take on a life all its own. When ethnic or racial groups feel targeted or vulnerable because of their identity, their identity is reinforced and distrust of other groups grows. The consistency of the fact patterns suggests that racism has long been used—as in Charlottesville—to obscure the identities of those skilled at shaping (and re-shaping) our national narrative by pitting two sides against another while profiting off the misery of both. The “sides” are irrelevant. Conservative/liberal, Democrat/Republican, communist/capitalist, Confederate vs. Union, Black/White, left/right. What’s required is a plausible Clash narrative able to fuel a crisis. Racism is a reliable trigger.
The roots of the Clash component known as Black Lives Matter trace to the August 2014 death of Michael Brown, a 6-feet 4-inch, 292-pound teen in Ferguson, Missouri who, as a robbery suspect, tried to take an arresting police officer’s gun and, when ordered to stop, rushed him. That incident was followed in quick succession by a series of other deaths involving black suspects, including Philandro Castile in Minnesota, Freddie Gray in Maryland, Walter Scott in South Carolina and Eric Garner in New York. This “Us vs. Them” narrative was amplified when Black pop culture stars Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and a troupe of police-lookalike dancers staged a provocative performance at the 2016 Super Bowl viewed by 115.5 million people.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio further inflamed tensions between Blacks and the police when he invited the race-baiting Al Sharpton to lecture New York police, turning cops against their mayor and inciting a man who drove from Georgia to New York to kill a cop. This friction fueled a narrative touted by both mainstream and social media that helped make it appear that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election with an appeal to estranged whites. In fact, as shown below, his Electoral College victory was a sophisticated psy-op (psychological operation) orchestrated by the same parties that produced his New York business career in sectors they dominate: casinos, pop culture and commercial real estate in Manhattan.
How the Israeli Right Produced Trump
November 2016 witnessed not an election but a social media-enabled psy-op. Artificial intelligence-assisted online profiling and the psychometric-assisted micro-targeting of “persuadable” voters put in the Oval Office an unqualified, unfit and emotionally unsuited man-child to advance an Israeli agenda. Through Trump, anti-Iran hardliners moved into key positions in the CIA and onto the National Security Council. Note the common denominator in this initial line-up of personnel unqualified for the positions they hold:
- Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and most trusted adviser, is a 36-year old devotee of the messianic Chabad Lubavitch sect. Yael (born Ivanka Trump) is a convert. The facts suggest that, in effect, Trump brokered his daughter in return for financial assistance (likely from Russian-Jewish oligarchs) and for help from rightwing Jewish Zionists in gaining him the presidency.
- Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a 31-year old outspoken Jewish advocate for regime change in Iran, served until August as Senior Director for Intelligence Programs for the National Security Council.
- Stephen Miller, a 31-year old self-described “practicing Jew,” remains senior policy adviser and speechwriter for a president with a known aversion both to reading and to substantive policy.
- Steve Bannon, Trump’s senior strategic adviser until August, as described by Jared Kushner: “All I know about Steve is my experience working with him. He’s an incredible Zionist and loves Israel.” Bannon’s close relationship with (Jewish) casino owner Sheldon Adelson and his equally rightwing Israeli wife (with a net worth of $34 billion) confirms that the “anti-Semite” smears aimed at Bannon were “fake news” meant to obscure a rightwing pro-Israel agenda.
Jared Kushner retained Cambridge Analytica (CA) to identify “persuadable” voters using its database of 4-5,000 data points on 220 million adult Americans. Drawing on online data from searches, Facebook likes and other personal data, CA devised a system of individualized psychological targeting. On the basis of just ten preferences, online-available data can evaluate a person better than their typical work colleague. Seventy “likes” are enough to know a person better than their friends. With 300 data points, profilers can know a person better than their partner. With a few more—from online searches, shopping data, memberships, etc.—psychometrics can profile a person beyond what that person thought they knew about themselves.
For the Trump campaign, data from online usage was gleaned, assessed and deployed as a form of psy-ops weaponry to shape decision-making by those profiled and targeted—without their knowledge—by sending messages online as “dark posts” seen by no one but those targeted. Online personality data informed both the content and tone of the messages, providing an “actionable view” of persuadable voting blocs that could be “flipped” in key electoral states. This personality-targeting parody of an election also helps explain why Donald Trump has no fixed policy positions. Every message that “his” campaign crafted was driven by Big Data-informed psychometrics aligned as accurately as possible to the personality of each targeted voter.
Big Data vs. Democracy
Big Data-derived digital footprints enabled the profiling that adapted the political “product” (Donald Trump) to targeted personalities. His message became whatever the psychometrics called for to solicit the target’s vote—or persuade them not to vote. As Vladimir Putin pointed out: “Trump’s team was more efficient during the election campaign.” While his opposition poured funds into broadcasting, the Trump psy-ops team was narrowcasting as they market-tested messages that were then targeted to the (profiled) mindset of those identified as “persuadables.” Donald Trump did not do this; he doesn’t even do email.
Other than self-adoration, he has no fixed views. As a narcissist, he provided an empty vessel whose views could be tailored to match the preferences, prejudices, likes and dislikes of persuadable voters. If, as the facts suggest, candidate Trump struck a deal with the pro-Israeli Right, the 2016 election proved not the robustness of U.S. democracy but its susceptibility to psy-ops in the age of social media and Big Data. The result: Israel placed in the Oval Office a Commander-in-Chief willing to provide Zionists with virtual control over U.S. foreign policy, including our nuclear-armed military.
Yet he is proving to be so reckless, reactionary and narcissistic that his ‘producers’ now realize he may not be reliably controllable. His attacks on “fake news” reflect his insecurity about the legitimacy of his Electoral College victory. With transparency, it will become apparent that fake news was deployed to sway profiled voters in those states that the Trump campaign knew were key to the appearance of victory. Rather than the ‘informed consent’ anticipated in elections, his campaign used misinformation, manipulation and outright deception to sway naïve, trusting and persuadable Americans.
The mainstream media criticism of chief strategist Steve Bannon avoided any mention that Breitbart News, an online publishing outlet, was founded by a pro-Israel rightwinger. In 2015, Bannon joined Breitbart’s (Jewish) CEO Larry Solov to launch Breitbart Jerusalem “specifically to cover the region from an unabashedly Zionist perspective.” Bannon also hosted 29 interviews with Frank Gaffney whose Center for Security Policy is known for its ultra-right Zionist views. Bannon praised Gaffney, insisting he is “doing amazing work, doing God’s work…Just fantastic.” Influence in the White House includes a tight circle of ultraorthodox extremists from Chabad Lubavitch, including Kushner, international negotiator Jason Greenblatt and David Friedman, a long-time supporter of Israeli settlements, who Trump appointed as “our” ambassador to Israel.
Kushner, Friedman and Greenblatt know that more settlements will incite more hatred against the U.S., ensuring in response the radical Islamic extremism required to justify a war with Iran—for Greater Israel. This is how “nonlinear warfare” is deployed to induce a target (such as the U.S.) to act against its own true interests. Known in game theory warfare as “active measures,” this behavior typifies how so few can exert such vast influence through “reflexive control”—anticipating our reaction to events staged by those with a “tireless genius for crisis.” Thus the reflexive control on display in our overwrought reaction to the mass murder provocation of 9/11.
Thus too the key role played in the microtargeting of persuade-ables by falsely portraying—as an anti-Semite—Trump campaign strategist Steven Bannon. In effect, that portrayal enabled psychographic microtargeters to deceive “alt right” voters (including anti-Semites and white supremacists) to support a candidate advised by Israel’s most extreme right-wing. Thus too the irony of their response when they congregated in Charlottesville chanting, “Jews will not replace us,” when it was the most rightwing Jewish Zionists that pre-staged their reaction.
Fraud and manipulation on such a scale would have been impossible but for a mainstream media long dominated by pro-Israelis. Had anti-Semitic, white nationalists and alt-right voters known that the Trump candidacy was not America First but Israel First, would they have rallied to his side? Would they have rallied in Charlottesville?
I don’t believe that Jared Kushner sought to visit the Russian Ambassador to discuss Moscow’s role in the election but to persuade Putin to disavow the nuclear accord with Iran that is opposed by the Israeli Right. Kushner’s father has been an ardent Zionist extremist since the 1950s. Rightwing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stayed at the home of the Kushner family, reportedly sleeping in Jared’s bed. Tel Aviv and its lobby are determined to undo the multinational nuclear accord with Iran. That makes Kushner’s outreach to Russia look less like inept diplomacy than outright treason.
If those who produced the Trump presidency can induce him to lead the U.S. into another war, we could see the U.S. fracture as never before under the strain of multiple crises—social, fiscal, geopolitical, financial and ecological—generating an outcome that will only further augment the influence of those identified.
Who are They and What Do They Want?
Several excerpts (below) from an online timeline confirm the common source of this hate-mongering and deceit spanning more than a century of U.S. politics as those complicit sought control over the Office of the President that they attained with their production of the Trump phenomenon. The facts suggest that U.S. history did not evolve naturally but in response to well-timed crises. For example:
1850 — Hallgarten & Company, a Frankfurt-based (Jewish) investment bank led by Casimir Stralem, co-founding partner and Rothschild manager, opened in Manhattan to finance both sides in a Civil War that fractured this nation. In 1951, son Donald Stralem financed the production of Duck & Cover, a psy-ops film shown by mandatory attendance to 40 million schoolchildren nationwide, internalizing the fear of nuclear war and catalyzing the Cold War ‘conflict-of-opposites.’
1912 — Robert Morgenthau chaired the campaign finance committee for Princeton academic Woodrow Wilson who won the presidency in November 1916 on the platform, “He Kept Us Out of the War.” In April 1917, in response to a series of maritime crises, the U.S. entered the First World War. After Wilson’s 1912 victory, Morgenthau became U.S. Ambassador to Constantinople as his son, Robert Morgenthau, Jr., moved in next door to Franklin Roosevelt to emerge as his Treasury Secretary during the Second World War. Junior then joined forces with Milwaukee native Golda Meir to chair the first U.S. bond drive for the Zionist experiment (Israel). Ms. Meir served as Israel Prime Minister, 1969-74.
1915 — The Ku Klux Klan was wiped out when it was banned in 1871, six years after the end of the Civil War. It was revived by the release in 1915 of The Birth of A Nation, Hollywood’s first big-budget blockbuster movie, directed by D.W. Griffith. The 3-hour film glorified the South and the Klan’s role in “defense of their Aryan birthright.” Under President Wilson, it was the first film screened at the White House. The Klan was revived that same year at Stone Mountain, Georgia. By August 1925, with a national dues-paying membership of five million men and 500,000 women, 30,000 Klansmen marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC. The U.S. was then experiencing stagnating incomes, a rapid growth in immigration and a fast-widening inequality that four years later helped trigger the Great Depression that hardened a far-right German nationalism set in motion by the reaction to reparations debt imposed on Germans by the post-WWI Treaty of Versailles—from which emerged the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (aka the Nazi Party) to defend their Aryan birthright.
1935 — Harry Truman was placed in the Senate by the Pendergast political machine of Kansas City that was represented in 1929 at the founding conclave of the National Crime Syndicate convened in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Two years later, a Jews-only conclave in Manhattan’s Franconia Hotel divided the nation into 24 exclusive territories and formed Murder, Inc. for enforcement.
1944 — Enroute to Hawaii to meet with General Douglas MacArthur, President Roosevelt stopped his railcar briefly in Chicago where the Democratic Party nominating convention was ongoing. When asked who should be his running mate, he responded “Leave it to Sidney.” With FDR in declining health, conventioneers knew they would be choosing the next president. Sidney Hillman, a labor organizer with known ties to (Jewish) organized crime, chose as FDR’s successor Zionist Christian Harry Truman, a political product of (Jewish) organized crime in Kansas City, Missouri.
1948 — Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann provided Truman a seven-page handwritten letter assuring him that Israel would operate as a democracy (vs. a theocracy) within boundaries that Zionists then sought. At the urging of Clark Clifford, interim chairman of Truman’s reelection campaign, Truman overruled his senior advisers to extend U.S. recognition to the Zionist experiment as a legitimate state. Clifford cautioned Truman that, absent recognition, campaign funds promised by Zionists would be withheld. Truman recognized Israel over the objections of Secretary of State George Marshall, the U.S. diplomatic corps, the C.I.A. and the Joint Chiefs who warned that the U.S. would be drawn into serial conflicts against our national interests. This “special relationship” has since obscured the common source of systemic political corruption and criminality, including ongoing treason.
1954 — An Israeli false flag operation (the Lavon Affair) planted bombs inside Egyptian, American and British-owned theatres and libraries. Those crises were meant to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood and others to create a climate of fear, insecurity and instability so that the British would retain their occupying troops in the Suez Canal zone, including the Sinai that Zionists consider part of Greater Israel.
1956 — During the last week of Eisenhower’s reelection campaign, Israel, France and Britain launched the Suez Crisis or what Israel described as its Sinai Campaign. Ike persuaded the French to withdraw and the British soon followed. When Israel refused, he sought the assistance of Congressional leaders only to discover that the Israel lobby had virtual control over the Congress—61 years ago. He turned instead to a nationwide TV broadcast. Ike was outraged. His support for Truman’s recognition of Israel helped offset the objections of General George Marshall and the Joint Chiefs when Zionists assured Ike that they would take no more land—as he then assured Arab leaders. As we now know, that’s what Zionists intended from the outset; they deceived both Eisenhower and Truman by also intending to become a Jewish state, a theocratic concept that cannot co-reside with the principles of a true democracy.
1960 — To replenish his presidential campaign coffers, Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy turned for support to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. According to his friend, Charlie Bartlett who introduced Jack to Jackie, he was assured of funding provided he agreed to turn over to them U.S. policy in the Middle East. Bartlett described JFK as outraged.
1963 — In mid-June, President Kennedy wrote to Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion seeking assurances that Israel was not building nuclear weapons at its nuclear facility at Dimona in the Negev Desert. Before that wire could be delivered, Ben-Gurion resigned. This ‘entropy strategy’ ensured that, by the time a functioning Israeli government was in place, the Kennedy problem was handled. During this same timeframe, Attorney General Robert Kennedy and Senator J. William Fulbright, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, were pressuring the Zionist Organization of America to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
The murder of JFK produced the presidency of Texan Lyndon B. Johnson who promptly abandoned the Kennedy and Fulbright initiatives. Soon thereafter, the Zionist Organization of America morphed into AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), the most visible component of the Israel lobby. LBJ brought with him a cadre of Zionists including trusted adviser and attorney Abe Fortas who helped him prevail when sued by his opponent in the fraudulent 1948 Senate Democratic primary that Johnson won by 87 votes with 200 votes tallied in alphabetical order. Fortas played a key role in pre-staging U.S. military aid to Israel that Johnson ordered when Zionists launched their 1967 Land Grab, provoking the outrage that continues to fuel terrorism in the region.
1967 — The night that Israel’s long-planned Six-Day War began, former Irgun operative Mathilde Krim was ‘servicing’ the U.S. Commander-in-Chief in the White House. Husband Arthur Krim, president of United Artists, then chaired the Finance Committee for the Democratic Party. He had earlier acquired property near the LBJ Ranch in Texas, enabling Mathilde to pursue an affair with Johnson. When Johnson ordered a cover-up of a June 8 Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty that killed 35 Americans and wounded 174, a U.S. President signaled Tel Aviv there was no limit to what Zionists could do to Americans and not be held accountable provided the White House could be staffed with a critical mass of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers). And, further, provided a complicit media declined to report on the killing of American servicemen by a purported ally. Had that attack been truthfully reported, the U.S. might have been spared the past half-century of costs imposed on Americans and others due to the U.S.-Israel relationship.
In the lead-up to Israel’s provocative expansion of land under its control as part of its “preemptive” war, New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison began an attention-diverting Kennedy assassination conspiracy trial featuring defendant Clay Shaw, a New Orleans antiques dealer and colleague of my “Uncle Bobby”, a Rothschild operative who also dealt in antiques. To begin that show trial, Lawrence Zeiger, a courier for (Jewish) organized crime, took cash to Garrison from stock swindler Louis Wolfson to hire as “researchers” several Kennedy assassination conspiracy theorists. In return, Zeiger was later rebranded (and rewarded) as talk show host Larry King with a high-profile program on CNN.
Meanwhile, those who produced the Johnson presidency profited greatly as he vastly expanded an unwinnable war in Vietnam from which Kennedy planned to have the U.S. withdraw. That national crisis marked a milestone in the systematic fracturing of the U.S. as that senseless war disillusioned an entire generation, sapped Americans’ confidence as a people and triggered a loss of faith in the legitimacy of our government. That loss is again on the rise due to Trump’s clear unfitness for office.
1968 — On June 6, Robert Kennedy was murdered on the same day that he won the critical California Democratic presidential primary. Had he won the presidency in November, Israel’s Kennedy problem could have re-emerged. The U.S. and the world would be a very different place had RFK halted the Zionists’ nuclear weapons program and forced the Zionist lobby to register as foreign agents. In terms of game theory warfare, the Kennedys presented a “variable” that had to be managed—and was.
2006 — During Israel’s July 2006 invasion of Lebanon, the U.S. dispatched to Tel Aviv an emergency supply of laser-guided bombs. Israel Defense Forces departed Lebanon leaving more than 100,000 unexploded, American-made cluster bomblets, the bulk of them deployed in the final hours of the invasion when Israel knew their withdrawal was imminent. That U.S.-discrediting strategy ensured that American munitions would continue to kill and maim Lebanese, primarily children, long after Israeli forces withdrew after killing more than 1,000 Lebanese, mostly civilians.
2015 — January 20 — President Obama gave his annual State of the Union address in which he promised to veto any additional sanctions that the Congress may propose on Iran’s nuclear program while talks on a peaceful resolution were underway. Prior to his speech, the leaders of both houses of Congress covertly invited Israeli rightwing Prime Minister to address a Joint Session of Congress in support of an attempt by the Israel lobby to override a presidential veto of more sanctions on Iran that, in Obama’s words, would “all but guarantee that diplomacy fails.”
January 21 — House Speaker John Boehner announced that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had agreed to address a Joint Session on “the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and our way of life…. Let’s send a clear message to the White House and the world about our commitment to Israel and our allies.” In effect, Netanyahu’s nationally televised speech was designed to persuade Americans that a U.S. Commander-in-Chief cannot be trusted and that Americans need a rightwing Israeli leader to tell them the truth about how best to defend America’s interests. The rousing, cheering two-minute standing ovation granted Netanyahu’s March 3rd speech in opposition to President Obama’s pending nuclear accord with Iran again confirmed the virtual control that the Israel lobby exerts over the Congress—and was then poised to wield over the Office of the President with the 2016 “election.”
In summary. Israel is neither a friend nor an ally but an enemy within. Its lobby must be forced to register as what it has long been and remains: a foreign agent. If lobbying to take us into unwinnable wars in Iraq, Syria and Iran is not the work of a foreign agent, what is? The consistency of the lobby’s war-mongering strategy became clear when, in September 2012, Israel operative Patrick Clawson candidly called for “crisis initiation” triggered by a false-flag incident to “step up the pressure” for a U.S. war with Iran.

The imbedding of Israel lobby influence in both major political parties is complete. Democrats Bill and Hillary Clinton served as reliable assets in weakening the U.S. at every turn. Over the objections of his own party, Bill endorsed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Since then, a single Mexican, Carlos Slim has emerged as the world’s sixth richest man (with $71 billion), to dominate the telecom industry. Clinton also enabled consolidation in U.S. media from fifty firms to a like-minded, pro-Israel six. Hillary won her New York Senate race in 2000 by promising to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a vote-getting tactic that Trump copied sixteen years later.
Fiscal conservative Republican Ronald Reagan, another classic asset and a Hollywood friend of my “Uncle Bobby,” promoted the deficit-financed “supply-side” tax policies that catalyzed both the rapid rise in government debt and the fast-widening gap between rich and poor. During the Republican Bush II presidency, Beijing signaled its arrival as a viable military opponent and an Information Age superpower with a January 2007 demonstration of its ability to destroy a surveillance satellite. China gained that military capability with the help of sophisticated gyroscopic technology provided by a company led by Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz, Bill Clinton’s largest political contributor.
The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) boasts that advisory board member Stephen Bryen served for eight years as a Reagan-era Deputy Under Secretary of Defense where he founded the Defense Technology Security Administration and served as its first director. He then served on the Government Security Committee of Space Systems/Loral. Loral shareholders (i.e., not Schwartz or Breyer) were ordered to pay a $20 million fine for undermining U.S. national security. Pension plans are key holders of Loral shares.
During the Clinton era, an October 1999 op-ed by New York Times executive editor Abe Rosenthal opposed Israel’s sale to China of the Phalcon, an advanced aircraft used to monitor and direct battlefield operations. An outspoken supporter of Israel, Rosenthal drew a line in the sand on that point, announcing that his loyalty was to the U.S. His pro-American stance led to his dismissal by publisher Arthur Ochs “Punch” Sulzberger despite Rosenthal’s 15 years at the Times. Israel began the sale of weapons systems to China in 1980 during the pre-staging of the presidency of asset Ronald Reagan.
During the Reagan era, the Israel lobby sought to block the sale to Saudi Arabia of the Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACS) with its plane-mounted radar system designed to detect aircraft from hundreds of miles away. Deploying AWACS over that theater of operations made it more difficult for Tel Aviv to persuade policymakers that the Jewish state is a perennial victim rather than a serial predator, an aggressor (as with the ’67 War) and a frequent agent provocateur (Tel Aviv had let it be known that they could create their own “oil embargo” by disrupting Saudi oil operations).
Charlottesville in perspective. The toxic charge of anti-Semitism has long been used to obscure the influence of those who produced a series of U.S. presidencies, including this latest one. The greatest influence on this presidency is not Russia but (a) members of a messianic sect of Judaism that traces its origins to Russia of the 1770s (Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Jason Greenblatt, David Friedman, et.al.), (b) senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, a Tea Party/Freedom Party enthusiast and former policy adviser to pro-Israeli presidential candidate Michele Bachman, and (c) several (Jewish) advisers from Manhattan, including economic adviser Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. At this writing, Chabad devotees Kushner and Greenblatt are in the Middle East. One must ask: on whose behalf?
Three days prior to the 2016 election, Greenblatt, Kushner and his wife, Yael (Ivanka), traveled together to pray at the grave of Chabad Lubavitch Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Ukraine-born, Brooklyn-based leader of this Hasidic sect who many consider a messiah. The 2013 Moscow event where Vladimir Putin confirmed the dominant Jewish role in creating the U.S.S.R. was presided over by Berel Lazar, the Chief Rabbi of Russia, a Chabad Lubavitch devotee of Schneerson who dispatched Rabbi Lazar to Russia in 1991 just as the (Jewish) oligarchs commenced their massive financial fraud.
While the Russian component of this trans-generational criminal syndicate was financially stripping the former Soviet Union, the Russian public endured a five-year decline in life expectancy among men, the most dramatic reversal in human welfare recorded in a developed nation other than in wartime. At least 12.5 million Russian men “disappeared” due to suicide, alcoholism, a failing healthcare system and destructive behavior. No one in the pro-Israel U.S. media compared the human impact of this nationwide fraud (pre-staged in 1917) to the WWII Holocaust in Europe that led to the founding of the Zionist experiment in the heart of the resource-rich Middle East. As in the U.S. with our ongoing epidemic of early death among men in their 50s, Russian men “lost the narrative of their lives.”
The facts suggest that what we now see emerging are dynamics that have repeated throughout history. Yet U.S. politics may be too compromised to respond in a way that protects our interests. My father, the original “Rockefeller Republican,” would no longer be welcome in today’s remnants of the Republican Party with its dramatic lurch to the militaristic, pro-Zionist right. As history shows, an extremist few can fracture a party, a movement or a nation by inserting their operatives on the inside—just as (predominantly Jewish) neoconservatives destroyed the GOP—and just as Democrats destroyed their broad base of support with political correctness and the perception of pushing too far and too fast on affirmative action.
America’s best chance of restoring self-governance now lies with informed military leaders, including the four generals serving as senior advisers to Donald Trump. When they fully grasp that Trump is not a legitimate president but a political “product” of those profiled, they will know that their sworn duty under the Constitution lies not with a particular office-holder but with protecting the Office of the President. The illegitimacy of Trump’s election risks delegitimizing that Office along with U.S. democracy. When Trump hesitated to condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the violence in Charlottesville, the military’s four service chiefs issued firm, forceful statements that showed their willingness to stand apart from their Commander-in-Chief. When Trump named John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff, the former Marine Corps General implemented a disciplined policy vetting process whose absence had empowered those staff with personal agendas who knew that Trump makes decisions with minimal input, reflection or discussion.
The damage inflicted on humanity by the U.S.-Israel relationship has been extreme. Trump’s repeated attacks on U.S. intelligence agencies risk delegitimizing the intelligence on which future presidents must rely when making decisions that could become existential threats in a nuclear-armed world destabilized by his presidency. In early August, he announced that Iran was not in compliance with the nuclear accord and directed a White House intelligence team to find supporting evidence. He may encounter resistance if he seeks to politicize intelligence in order to lead the U.S. to war with Iran—for Israel.
Though the Constitution envisions civilian control over the military, the Founding Fathers did not anticipate that such a duplicitous foe—operating across generations—could exert virtual control from inside government and pose an existential threat to democracy. The existential threat facing the Zionist enterprise is not Iran. Iran is a sideshow meant to lend credibility to the latest Clash narrative and plausibility to the next unnecessary and unwinnable war that we may yet be induced to wage—for Greater Israel.
As the Israeli Right knows, their true existential threat is the facts pivoting off my life experience proving the magnitude of the tax that Zionists imposed on humanity, lately through their manipulation of the U.S. dating to no later than their founding of Hallgarten & Co. in 1850 to finance a nation-fracturing Civil War. That war began 85 years after the Founders pledged their “lives, their fortunes and the sacred honor” to found a “more perfect union.” As these facts are engaged, we may see Tel Aviv launch another “entropy strategy” similar to how Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion resigned to evade President Kennedy’s insistence that Zionists shut down their nuclear weapons program (Israel has since routinely stymied efforts directed at ensuring a nuclear weapons-free Middle East). A move is underway to pre-stage the resignation of Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of the rightwing Likud Party who has served longer than any Prime Minister except Ben-Gurion.
Who Is Complicit?
The damage inflicted on the U.S. was not done to us; our elected representatives allowed it over decades as those complicit imbedded their duplicity in domains essential to preserve self-governance. The danger posed by this deceit has grown exponentially with the emergence of Internet search engines offering a portal to all knowledge, and social media providing a means to connect and communicate. As I will show, whereas the danger of the 18th Century was those who believed in rule by Divine Right or the papacy, the peril in the Information Age is those who believe they are Chosen and have the right to choose what we see or hear.
Today’s systemic deceit would have been impossible but for the complicity of mainstream media dominated by those who share the same predisposed pro-Israel bias. The phony intelligence on which the U.S. relied to invade Iraq went largely unquestioned by media outlets on which we had been induced to rely. The issue is not fake news but the outright deception used to displace facts with manipulated beliefs. Remember the claims of Iraqi WMD? By inducing faith in that false intelligence, those complicit in this geostrategic duplicity targeted our informed consent, the very foundation of self-governance.
During the 2016 election season, the top-performing fictitious election stories on Facebook generated more engagement than the top 20 stories by established media outlets, including the The New York Times, The Washington Post and NBC News. The fact-displacing, opinion-shaping capacity of social media was deployed with great success by digital strategists Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon in the service of those notorious for waging war by way of deception—the operating motto of the Israeli intelligence services. According to Cambridge Analytica where Bannon then served as a director, the recipe for profiling and persuading voters was like “baking a cake.”
It was not informed choice but psychographic microtargeting that enabled the Trump campaign to prevail in key electoral states. Victory went to the campaign best able to (a) identify persuadable voters, and (b) support its online-harvested “data points” with appealing psychographics. Facebook emerged as “the micro-targeter’s ultimate weapon” in providing access to personal data and crafting effective messaging.
As shown by the successful psychographic microtargeting of voters profiled online without their knowledge, Trump’s 2016 Electoral College “victory” would have been impossible without the complicity of those (Jewish) executives with oversight of online search and social media, including Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Google/Alphabet and Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook.
This is not about the liberals in Silicon Valley versus the conservatives in Middle America; this new IT-enabled censorship is far more serious and potentially life-threatening. Google is now the world’s largest news aggregator and nearly half of Americans rely on Facebook as a source of news. According to BuzzFeed, among the 20 most popular fake election stories that generated the most audience engagement on Facebook in the last three months of the 2016 campaign, all but three were either pro-Trump or anti-Hillary.
Google maintains at least nine blacklists, typically without input from any outside source. Rather than the vaunted Golden Gateway to all knowledge, its founders retain the right (granted by whom?) to blacklist whatever or whoever they choose despite indexing more than 45 billion web pages and handling 90% of search inquires in most countries. Their ability to profit off the content created by others (with a winner-take-all mindset) is shown in the fact that YouTube (owned by Google) claims more than 55% of the streaming audio business while contributing only 11% of the revenue distributed to the creators.
Fully 90% of all online clicks go to links on the first page that appears. The resulting “search engine manipulation effect” can create prosperity or devastation—for favored (or disfavored) companies. Likewise for the fate of political candidates or for access to information that people require to make informed choices. The selective blacklisting of news sources provides a powerful means for promoting an agenda with no one the wiser—just as the Trump campaign profiled and targeted voters without their knowledge. Cambridge Analytica provided the same service to the Brexit campaign in the U.K. that fractured the EU and put the British on the path to a slow-motion crisis.
The Internet Threat
While this may not (yet) be the online equivalent of the Thought Police, these self-anointed Internet cops exert far more power than is realized by a naïve and trusting public, many of whom sincerely believe that the 2016 presidential election was not a fraud. As an inkling of what may be next to come, Facebook’s CEO recently completed a presidential candidate-like “listening tour” of all 50 states. If the Facebook-facilitated, Internet-enabled Trump presidency should falter (members of his own party are questioning his fitness for office), will we see a Facebook-led Zuckerberg-for-President candidacy?
As Google absorbed its various companies into Alphabet, Google’s corporate motto from 2000 until 2015 (“Don’t be evil.”) became “Do the right thing”. Will Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page support Zuckerberg in a 2020 bid to become our 36-year old (Jewish) Commander-in-Chief? If so, how would we know? Would that be doing the right thing? Though the three of them possess a combined personal wealth of $146 billion, they needn’t contribute money. Despite objections to the 2010 Supreme Court opinion in Citizens United sanctioning unlimited funding in indirect support of political candidates and campaigns, money is not what gained the presidency for Donald Trump. Vladimir Putin’s description was spot-on; he described the Trump campaign—with its psychographic microtargeting—as “more efficient.”
Big Tech titans can keep their money; they need only tweak their algorithms and use their gatekeeper influence to make it appear, as with Trump in 2016, that people got what they wanted—with voters none the wiser. Add Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to the mix (with his $81.6 billion in personal wealth) along with Amazon’s success in the online competition for eyeball impressions and one can see four Internet era Citizen Kanes coming clearly into focus with their combined wealth of $227.7 billion.
How would you know that you’ve been profiled, targeted and persuaded? And how would you object? To what media outlets would you turn? As business executives know, those crafting search algorithms at Google already possess the power to put a company out of business. Or eliminate political opposition by hindering access to their website. Anyone seeking entrée to IT’s Golden Gateway is one algorithm tweak away from oblivion. Who granted so few such power? Is this the Digital Age version of Divine Right? As Chosen, did these IT executives assume this discretion is their birthright?
That’s another of the lessons of Charlottesville. Though the First Amendment right to free speech has no exception for hate speech, the haters that everyone loves to hate (such as neo-Nazis and white supremacists) quickly experienced an Internet-wide denial of service—to their websites, to the PayPal platform, to their use of credit cards, even online dating services blocked access while Facebook stepped up the policing of posts it finds offensive. With whom does the power reside to shame or exclude?
Google/Alphabet founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page recruited some 10,000 “evaluators” to judge the “quality” of web domains in order to block access to those sites flagged for “misleading information, unexpected offensive results, hoaxes and unsupported conspiracy theories.” In what may be a telltale development, before implementing its new screening algorithms, the chief search engineer for Google met with German officials in Berlin to discuss their new censorship protocols. In the Germany of today, could access to the materials you’re now reading be banned as “anti-Semitic”—despite the facts? And despite what my life experience proves regarding the common source of this criminality?
Narratives Change Lives
Do not be deceived by the falsely friendly face presented by Google and Facebook. These businesses now possess both the power to shut down your business and the means to distort democracy in ways that the Founders never imagined. And while these firms are enabling those who profiled you to manipulate the 2016 election, they’re also selling to the highest bidder your most personal information—without your knowledge.
Let’s make it simple: Google and Facebook are in the data extraction business. Their business model sells at the highest possible price as much data as they can glean from as many people as possible at the lowest possible cost. They are in business to attract and sell both your attention and data about who you are. Which articles you read, who e-mails them, what subjects you tweet about, how long you stay on a website, which movies you attend, your emotional triggers, your eccentricities. Imagine 4-5,000 data points just on you. Then multiply that by 220 million adult Americans.
With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), that Big Data treasure trove was mobilized by Cambridge Analytica on behalf of the Trump campaign. Google accounts for almost 90% of search advertising and Facebook almost 80% of mobile social traffic. These ‘surveillance marketing’ firms exploit their network monopolies to sell not only the online traffic (you) but also the data about the traffic. You are their most valuable product. How does that benefit you?
Combine Big Tech and Big Data and what do you get? Answer: what we’ve now got, including the presidency of Donald Trump. Make America Great? Do the right thing? By what metric does any of this make America great? Did the Jared Kushner-directed Cambridge Analytica do the right thing? If you don’t yet grasp that their targeting of your attention is personal, you’re not paying attention.
My great-grandfather, John D. Rockefeller, created a monopoly in a single product (oil) and recycled much of that wealth back into education and health. That monopoly during the Gilded Age pales in comparison to the influence wielded by today’s tech oligopolists of the Internet Age. Rather than—as Internet pioneers envisioned—marginalizing gatekeepers to knowledge and culture and creating a bottom-up network of “netizens” that would decrease inequality, this technology instead empowered a few with tools able to shape the national narrative while creating an inequality gap far wider than in 1929, a key contributor to the Great Depression. People became users of technology owned and abused by others.
When forced to deal with the monopolized private control of railroads, the preeminent transmission technology of the 1890s, the Populist Party platform of 1892 read: “We believe that the time has come when the railroad corporations will either own the people or the people will own the railroads.” In the case of IT technologies, user-ownership is a financial design choice, as I show below. As the dominant transmission technology of the Information Age, every day shifts more wealth and influence into ever fewer hands, including a powerful new means for rapidly spreading not just fake news but also memes, including panics, false narratives, threats to security and to society. Resolving this issue is essential for a system of governance reliant on informed consent to protect its citizens from those adept at displacing facts with what a naïve and trusting public can be induced to believe.
The U.S. lags well behind the European Union in levying on Google a $2.8 billion fine for its monopolistic practices. Yet, as with net neutrality, how the problem is presently framed misses the key point. It’s not just that Google monopolizes search results (and is paid to prioritize those results). The broader question is how can self-governance be protected from those who share an undisclosed bias favoring Zionist goals and advance an agenda pursued by the Zionist lobby? How are we to know we’ve not been induced to step into a narrative not of our own making but crafted by others? If those I profiled can take us into serial unnecessary and unwinnable wars, what more can we expect with one of their classic assets now Commander-in-Chief?
Things could get worse, far worse. In the process of dominating cloud services, Amazon employed Israeli staff in designing its architecture. In December 2016, Jeff Bezos quietly visited Israel ahead of a major hiring drive as he began to locate in Haifa much of Amazon’s cloud-related research and development. Whether knowingly or unwittingly, Bezos is enabling those who (a) wage war “by way of deception,” the motto of the Israeli intelligence services, and (b) share a “tireless genius for crisis.” Emboldened by the ease with which the Trump presidency was produced, the Israeli Right has every incentive to ensure that Unit 8200, the Israel Defense Force’s 5,000-person cyberwarfare operation, compromises cloud services such that Israel gains the cloud-enabled means to profile (and manipulate) people worldwide.
Can This Be Fixed?
This is not about one political party versus another. Both major political parties have imploded under their virtual control by the Israel lobby. Since no later than the Eisenhower era, the Zionist lobby has wielded virtual control over the U.S. Congress. But for the Kennedy murders, their lobby may have been forced into the open as foreign agents of a “Jewish state” whose founding values are incompatible with our commitment to a true democracy. The task of making their operations transparent remains undone.
This is not about Jews though their lobby will claim otherwise. Zionists have long preyed on Jewish identity just as they also manipulated other identities. Both Blacks and racist Whites routinely serve as unwitting pawns of those who pair racism with anti-Semitism to urge more protection for Zionist Jews who share none of the values of the broader Jewish community. Right on cue, Al Sharpton emerged alongside New York Congressman Jerry Nadler in an August 22nd interview claiming that, with the narrative set in motion by the crisis in Charlottesville “any match could lead to an explosion” (aka a well-timed crisis). This is the “tireless genius for crisis” that my father referenced in a 1964 speech at Harvard University.
Nadler added the requisite “correspondence” component—pairing racism and anti-Semitism—when he claimed that Trump “is willing to exploit…anti-Semitic or anti-black or racist feelings.” Repeating a pattern, Sharpton warned that the violence at protests and counter-protests could cause deep psychological damage “especially among children.” That suggests we look back to how schoolchildren were targeted in 1951 with the mandatory nationwide viewing of Duck & Cover, including teacher-directed drills requiring that impressionable youth cower under their desks at the fear and insecurity accompanying the threat of a Soviet attack using what were then atomic weapons. This animated, child-friendly film, privately funded by Rothschild operative Donald Stralem, was publicly sanctioned as part of the “emotion management” component of Civil Defense during the Truman presidency.
The crisis in Charlottesville—with prodding by mainstream media—illustrates how a populace can be induced to step into an “Us vs. Them” narrative not of our own making. The resulting Clash reflects a recurring pattern of crisis-enabled hate-mongering that evokes fear and insecurity as a means to displace rational analysis and critical thinking. That’s how we were induced to wage an unnecessary and unwinnable war in Iraq as post-9/11 emotions took precedence over the critical analysis required to craft a real solution. Rather than let facts get in the way, our leaders were induced to embrace an alternative, belief-based reality in which we put at risk both our credibility and our nation-state legitimacy—reliant on our faith in false intelligence that was pre-staged well prior to that mass murder provocation.
For those I profiled over the past 35 years, murder is a means and facts are only an inconvenience to be displaced with an induced narrative. Thus the key role, as Roger Waters points out, of those like-minded senior executives who have long dominated mainstream media—and now dominate social media and search engines. As we now know, it was “fake news” that induced the U.S. to wage yet another (highly profitable) unwinnable war, including an ongoing (unwinnable) war in Afghanistan, rightly known as the “graveyard of empires.” U.S. involvement in that Clash is now four times longer than the Civil War.
With their production of the Trump presidency, those complicit created a crisis of legitimacy for the U.S. as a 241-year old experiment in self-governance. If the U.S. can be so thoroughly corrupted by so few, how does that color our credibility when we propose to others an open society when ours enabled duplicity on such a massive scale? If we can be induced to wage a series of unwinnable wars—stretching back to no later than Truman’s decision to send U.S. troops to Vietnam—what does that say for the robustness of a system of governance reliant on informed consent? The U.S.-Israel relationship has devastated our credibility and standing. Their production of the Trump presidency made a perilous situation far worse.
Those who devised identity politics know that America was founded as an idea, not an ethnicity. For good reason, the Founders are also known as the Framers who foresaw that we could only be controlled by others if we could be fractured as a People (the capital “P” is theirs). Though founded by dissenting Protestants, many of them slaveholders, the documents that framed our national narrative reflect values and principles common to all major faith traditions.
That’s also why Harry Truman, to his credit, insisted on an assurance from Chaim Weizmann that Zionists would create a genuine democracy and not a faith-based theocracy in Palestine. As we now know, a Jewish ethnocracy is what they sought from the outset to the detriment of the broader Jewish community concerned at the long-term implications of the ethno-nationalism that Israel quickly became. Many Jews foresaw in 1948 that Zionism posed a threat to their security, particularly if Zionists imposed on Palestinians a segregated “Jim Crow” system similar to the segregation that typified much of the U.S. The warning signs were there for anyone willing to look. The Joint Chiefs saw quite clearly the threat that this entangled alliance would pose to U.S. interests, including our national security.
Those I’ve profiled my entire life know that the highest degree of leverage is achieved by targeting the shared mindset. Thus their focus on gaining dominance in media, pop culture and politics as key to dominating the national narrative. Over roughly the past eight decades, the financial component of that mindset has become the “Washington consensus”. To oversimplify, that mindset regards financial freedom as a proxy for personal freedom. By 2020, that mindset will guide $102 trillion in funds under management worldwide. For financial sophisticates, today’s outcome was not difficult to foresee as the eight richest people (including Zuckerberg, Bezos and Microsoft’s Bill Gates) amassed more wealth than the world’s poorest 3.5 billion people. According to Credit Suisse, we’re now on track to have 11 trillionaires within two generations.
Facebook reports 1.32 billion daily active users and more than two billion monthly daily users as of June 30, 2017. Modern information technology is transforming both the marketplace and the public sphere. The unregulated oligopoly that settled into Silicon Valley and Seattle has done very well by owning the platforms, software and algorithms that network the world. They also now dominate a means of transmission with the ability to empower those with a “tireless genius for crisis.”
Toward a Systemic Solution to a Systemic Problem
Had those complicit not undermined in 2000 an agreed-to Internet business model that I designed for China, both the ownership of (and the income generated by) this promising new technology would now be empowering stakeholders in China while funding education and access to knowledge rather than enriching a few executives and building wealth for shareholders with no interest other than financial. That “hybrid” model drew on my father’s work from the post-WWII era when, as Assistant Secretary of State for Latin America, he was tasked with devising a means to counter the appeal of communism in developing countries. As he said at the time, communism is not the problem; it can be contained—and was. The problem is the “rapacious greed” of unaccountable capitalism.
As agreed to in 2000 by the Ministry of Education, the NewRock model had an initial reach of 235 million Chinese schoolchildren. Designed 17 years ago to operate as what Chinese Internet giant Alibaba has since become. Its $2 billion per quarter profit could by now be supporting education—the best chance the Chinese have to soften the effects of authoritarian rule. Meanwhile Beijing would have gained a means to make education largely self-financing.
Can this systemic corruption be fixed? Yes. Search engines, social media platforms and telecom can be owned by their stakeholders so that their usage benefits them and their communities. If you knew what Google and Facebook would do with your personal data, would you have agreed? What if you were offered similar services—in search, social media and telecom—that not only enabled you to opt in or out but also made you a financial beneficiary as a stakeholder of those enterprises?
The good news is that—with improved design—Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Amazon and other oligopolizers of IT technologies can be displaced. U.S. debate about the use of these technologies is focused on “net neutrality.” That means Internet data should be transmitted without discrimination and all traffic should be treated equally (neutrally). Internet Service Providers (ISPs) seek more freedom to set prices on web traffic that uses their networks, including the ability to determine which users have access and at what speed, generating an ISP profit stream from packaged or tiered services.
Neither approach addresses the undisclosed bias that will continue unimpeded under either policy. Nor does either proposal provide a path to ensure that the financial benefits of this technology—derived from decades of public and private investment in education and knowledge—are widespread and designed to benefit community. The recognition of knowledge as a commons informed the Sherman Antitrust decree in 1956 that compelled the A.T.&T. telecom monopoly to break itself into the Baby Bells and license, for a small fee, all the patents owned by Bell Labs, its research arm.
Confirming the Common Source of the Problem
Regardless of the organizational or financial fix, the censorship point remains. As Roger Waters points out from his personal experience, supporters of the BDS movement (boycott, divestment, sanctions)—designed to incentivize an end to Israel’s 50-year occupation—are routinely targeted by pro-Israel supporters in media, pop culture, think tanks, academia and politics. In a move similar to the online censorship exercised by the Internet titans, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order that had the desired chilling effect when he directed that the state of New York do no business with firms that support BDS. Why? Because they don’t fit into the narrative preferred by the Israel lobby, including the ADL who labeled Waters an “anti-Semite” for his principled stand in opposition to Israel’s half-century of military occupation.
It’s difficult to overstate the influence wielded by the Israel lobby in key states. In 1998, the State Department objected that state officials were interfering in foreign affairs when officials in New York and California, two states where politics are dominated by the Israel lobby, threatened foreign banks with sanctions in a Holocaust case. A pending U.S. Senate bill with 48 cosponsors may subject BDS supporters to civil and criminal penalties of up to $1 million and 20 years in prison.
Among many of my personal experiences proving beyond any reasonable doubt the common source of this systemic corruption, I interacted three separate times in California with “former” Israeli Defense Forces colonels Jason Barzilay and Daniel Platzker. They bragged about their role in producing the political career of Governor Gray Davis, initially as an Assemblyman from West Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. While Governor, as they explained, Davis sponsored their proposed change in law to ensure that no insurance company could operate in California—the world’s sixth largest economy—without settling pending Holocaust claims. That change enabled Zionists to force the payment of billions of dollars by European firms ostensibly to assist impoverished Holocaust survivors—who remained impoverished.
The ability of the expansive Israel lobby to corrupt, compromise, intimidate and extort public officials imposes a hidden tax on communities and governments in the U.S. and abroad. Their production of the Trump presidency comes as no surprise to those familiar with the inner workings of organized crime. It’s no coincidence that Trump attorney Roy Cohn, who famously served as counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s, also represented Mafia figures Tony Salerno, Carmine Galante and John Gotti.
Their marketing of Russia as the sole source of election-year meddling is misdirection—particularly considering the scope of the damage inflicted on the U.S. by our “special relationship” with Israel that hollowed out our liberal democracy, leaving self-governance an empty shell compared to what was envisioned by Jefferson, Madison & Co. In hindsight, the Joint Chiefs were correct in 1948 when they cautioned President Harry Truman about the dangers of recognizing the Zionist experiment as a state rather than simply tolerating an enclave of Jewish financial elites and rightwing religious zealots.
Making a Mockery of Demoracy
As Albert Einstein and 27 other prominent Jews pointed out in December 1948, those I profiled while being stalked my entire life (I was born in 1952) are “fascists” who seek a “Leader State.” What those concerned Jews failed to realize is that Zionists planned from the outset to achieve their Leader State by manipulating our open society while undermining our goodwill earned at great cost in blood and treasure over two world wars. To describe those who manipulate Jewish identity while oppressing the Palestinians, Jewish novelist Hannah Arendt described Zionists in 1948 as simply “Jewish Nazis”.
The Zionist experiment traces its legitimizing origins to the Balfour Declaration of 1917, the same year they launched their disastrous experiment in class politics in Russia. Both experiments failed. Just as 50 years of occupation is enough, 100 years of militaristic, rightwing Zionism is more than enough. The Zionist experiment must come to an end both for the sake of humanity and due also to the potential impact on the broad-based Jewish community who—due to Israeli behavior—risk appearing guilty by association. With the facts now available to prove the common source of this long-running duplicity, this hidden tax on humanity can be brought to an end.
How ironic if the Clash in Charlottesville should be the trigger that fractured a nation founded on E Pluribus Unum. And how appropriate—and hopeful—if that hate-fest instead awakens humanity to the source of this threat and exposes this duplicity at its source, both here and abroad. To date, those complicit have been incentivized to mock democracy and the rule of law as they exert virtual control in a nonlinear fashion unfamiliar to those trained in linear jurisprudence.
Any further delay in exposing the how of this deceit can only serve to revive and reinforce prejudices and bigotries rather than proceeding consistent with the evidence-based rule of law. The facts of my life experience prove not only how but also who and why. What’s been done by those profiled was not done to us, we were deceived to do it to ourselves, as with our waging their war in Iraq.
The criminal obstruction of any investigation of my life experience remains ongoing. With what my experience proves, those complicit in this trans-generational criminality can be identified, indicted and held accountable. To bring charges, the facts of my experience need only be investigated in good faith and those facts followed—wherever they may lead.

 Floridian David Levy Yulee served in the U.S. Senate from 1845 to 1851 and then again from 1855-1861 though he adopted a Christian lifestyle (Louisianan Judah Benjamin served from 1853-1861). Yulee’s father, Moses Levy, was a first cousin and business partner of Judah Benjamin’s father, Phillip. Yulee’s pro-slavery rhetoric earned him the nickname, Florida Fire Eater. He led the Southern walkout from the Senate in January 1861. His business success (a sugar plantation and a railroad) traced to slave labor.
 As the Jewish Virtual Library reports in an online biography on Benjamin: “In her autobiography, Jefferson Davis’s wife, Varina, informs us that Benjamin spent twelve hours each day at her husband’ side, tirelessly shaping every important Confederate strategy and tactic. Yet, Benjamin never spoke publicly or wrote abut his role and burned his personal papers before his death….”

 For anyone who thinks it impossible that a presidential candidate could be “produced” years beforehand (similar to casting a movie), consider the probability that Bush II National Security Adviser and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, at age 13, relocated with her family to Denver and moved in next door to the father of Benjamin Netanyahu. After being mentored in Russian studies by Jewish-Czech defector Josef Korbel and his daughter, Madeleine Albright (who, upon being nominated by Bill Clinton as Secretary of State in 1996, claimed an “epiphany” that she was Jewish), Ms. Rice was induced to market the false Iraq WMD narrative with her famous quip, “We don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.” See below re the 1951 psy-ops film, Duck & Cover and my relationship to the producer.

Foreshadowing the foreign policy to come, the book put Iran at the center of a “great evil” and named China as part of a “working coalition” allied with “radical Islamists and regimes in Havana, Pyongyang, Moscow and Beijing.” The book’s well-timed release pre-staged a post-election victory call to President-elect Trump from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, igniting a crisis that unsettled almost four decades of a One China policy. While working as a New Republic correspondent in Italy for (Jewish-Zionist) editor Martin Peretz, CIA station files described Michael Ledeen as an agent of influence of a foreign government (Israel). Ledeen was then hired in 1981 by (Jewish) neocon Paul Wolfowitz, director of policy planning at the State Department. In 1983, he was hired on the recommendation of (Jewish) neocon Richard Perle as a Defense Department consultant on terrorism before becoming a consultant to the National Security Council and later a consultant to the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans led by (Jewish) neocon Douglas Feith where he helped manipulate the intelligence that induced the U.S to war in Iraq for Greater Israel. He previously served on the board of the Jewish Institute of National Security Affairs along with Richard Perle and Stephen Bryen. Part of the neocon-dominated American Enterprise Institute, Ledeen was also a board member of the Coalition for Democracy in Iran founded by Morris Amitay, former Executive Director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). He now serves as the “freedom scholar” at the pro-Israel Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. FDD advisors, experts and members of its leadership council feature known Israeli agents and assets, including former Senator Joe Lieberman, Weekly Standard Editor William Kristol, former Wall Street Journal columnist and editor Bret Stephens, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer and former C.I.A. Director James Woolsey, an outspoken neocon and key promoter of the false intelligence that took us to war in Iraq by claiming a (nonexistent) meeting in Praque five months before 9/11 between lead terrorist Mohammad Atta and a senior Iraqi official.

 Trump’s Electoral College win is due to his margin of victory in three states. He won Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 points, respectively and by 10,704, 46,765 and 22,177 votes (79,646 total). Those three states provided his campaign 46 electoral votes. Philip Bump, “Donald Trump will be president thanks to 80,000 people in three states.” The Washington Post, December 1, 2016.

 Evidence of that control includes the fact that Lt. General Michael Flynn, fired as Trump’s National Security Adviser, faces potential liabilities for his work on behalf of Turkey while failing to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Meanwhile those working to take us to war on behalf of Israel escape the registration requirement. The issue has seldom been raised since John F. Kennedy, Attorney General Robert Kennedy and Senator J. William Fulbright, chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, sought to force FARA compliance on the Zionist Organization of America in 1962-63. At the same time, President Kennedy sought to shut down the Zionists’ nuclear weapons program. Those initiatives ended with the Kennedy’s murder in November 1963. The murder of Robert Kennedy on June 6, 1968 ensured that those initiatives would not be revived. The Zionist Organization of America morphed into the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)/ Tel Aviv continues to expand the Jewish state’s arsenal of nuclear weapons.
 The Electoral College margin of victory was 79,646 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won those states by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively.

 Strategists in nonlinear warfare also target the public’s faith in institutions of governance and the legitimacy of law. Undermine informed choice and confidence in the rule of law and who emerges victorious? Answer: those duplicitous few who view themselves as Chosen and above the law. In Russia, nonlinear war is known as the Gerasimov doctrine, named after Valery Gerasimov, Chief of the Russian General Staff. Those profiled are skilled at eroding the ability to distinguish fact from fiction. Thus their need for dominance in pop culture, particularly cinema, and mainstream media. With each fraud on the U.S.—enabled by our entangled alliance with Israel—we become weaker and more fractured. Thus the targeting of informed choice by a foe that subverts by manipulating information and intelligence to shape reactions to well-timed crises. See Molly K. McKew, “Putin’s Real Long Game,” Politico, January 1, 2017.

 Abraham Kuhn and his brother-in-law, Solomon Loeb, made their first fortune in Cincinnati selling uniforms to Northern troops during the Civil War. They opened their first New York store as an outlet for men’s trousers. According to biographer Ron Chernow: “The color-blind Solomon seemed strangely placed in the textile trade. In 1867, flush with their wartime profits, Kuhn and Loeb inaugurated a New York banking house.” In 1873, Jacob Schiff joined Kuhn, Loeb in Manhattan and, two years later, married Therese Loeb, Solomon Loeb’s daughter from his first marriage.

 Wilson appointed commodity trader Bernard Baruch to head the War Industries Board. Baruch was a native of South Carolina where his wife’s grandfather served as the rabbi of Charleston when this southern port was the third largest city in the U.S. due to trade in cotton, rice and slaves.
 After an ailing FDR accepted an invitation to recuperate in secret for two weeks at Hobcaw Barony, a Bernard Baruch estate off the South Carolina coast, the wartime president emerged a month later noticeably sicker. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Wilson appointed this New York commodity trader as chair of the WWI War Industries Board to coordinate the purchase of war supplies. Baruch later emerged as Truman’s appointee to the U.N. Atomic Energy Commission where his “Baruch Plan” undermined a pending proposal for international control of then-new atomic energy, setting in motion the nuclear weapons race with its MAD strategy (Mutual Assured Destruction) that defined the (highly profitable) Cold War. “Cold War” is a Clash phrase reportedly coined by Baruch and his publicist, Herbert Bayard Swope, who branded Baruch “the park bench diplomat.”
 Donald Trump is a classic asset. Assets are people profiled such that, within an acceptable range of probabilities, they can be relied upon to behave consistent with their personality profile. Assets lack the state of mind (mens rea) required for criminal culpability under linear law because they lack the conscious intent to commit a crime. Nevertheless, they can contribute to a criminal operation simply by pursuing their unfulfilled needs, typically for recognition, influence, money, sex, drugs or ideology. See Chapter 1 of Guilt By Association—How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War (2008) posted online at www.hiddentaxonhumanity.com. This book is also known as the McCain book with three chapters chronicling the production of his political career as an asset. McCain now chairs the Senate Committee on Armed Forces.
 CNN, branded worldwide as “the most trusted name in news,” showcases Wolf Blitzer who has long been among the most reliable media outlets for the Israel lobby in advancing Zionist narratives. Seventeen years with The Jerusalem Post and a former editor of Near East Report, a publication of the Israel lobby, and author of a 1989 book, Territory of Lies, sympathetic to Israeli super-spy Jonathan Pollard, Blitzer broadcasts from a credibility-by-association stage set branded The Situation Room with its not-so-subtle suggestion of White House authority (aka correspondence theory).
 Six days after Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton also sought to undermine negotiations by releasing a letter to the Iranian leader signed by 47 Republican Senators implying that any Obama-negotiated accord could be undone by the Senate or the next president. The role played by Israel and its lobby was apparent but nontransparent and, as usual, went largely unmentioned by our pro-Israel mainstream media. Those skeptical that a 37-year old freshman Senator would take this step on his own initiative had good reason to worry. Our National Security Agency (NSA) overheard Netanyahu conferring with Cotton. President Obama ordered the NSA to monitor Netanyahu and his aides when they and the Israel lobby sought to scuttle the Iran accord meant to prevent a war that has long been sought by supporters of Greater Israel. Cotton’s Senate campaign received more than $2 million in support from pro-Israeli groups and individuals. No single incident was enough to indict anyone for espionage or treason. The influence of Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah was apparent in the contribution of more than $1 million to the Club for Growth Action, a Super PAC that financially backed Cotton. The Emergency Committee for Israel, led by neoconservative William Kristol, invested $960,250 in last-minute ads supporting Cotton’s Senate campaign. Kristol is co-founder of the Project for a New American Century established in 1997 to lobby for regime change in Iraq. Paul Singer, a New York hedge fund billionaire and supporter (along with Sheldon Adelson) of Birthright Israel, invested $250,000 in the production of Cotton’s political career. Seth Klarman, a Boston-based pro-Israeli billionaire, contributed $100,000. At least $825,000 was invested in Cotton by a political action committee run by former Bush-era U.N. Ambassador and bombastic neocon John Bolton. The Bolton PAC is financed largely by Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah and by Irving and Cherna Moskowitz of Miami who for years have funded settlements in Israel. Bolton appeared on President-elect Trump’s short list for Secretary of State; Cotton was identified as an early favorite for Secretary of Defense.
 Capturing such Zionist candor on film is unusual. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-mo96i_4iI Clawson was speaking at a conference organized by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a research organization founded by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a key component of the Israel lobby.
 Robert Lighthizer, senior tax counsel to Senate Republicans during the supply-side era of Reaganomics, was appointed by Trump to serve as U.S. Trade Representative in charge of negotiating U.S. trade agreements.
 A friend of my Rothschild agent “Uncle Bobby” (step-uncle Robert King Cunningham), Reagan gained the name-recognition profile required to emerge as a viable political candidate when Chicago labor consigliore Sidney Korshak arranged for him to assume the presidency of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) on behalf of the Chicago-based Music Corporation of America (MCA) founded by Jules Stein. The “special exemption” granted MCA by the Reagan-led SAG (allowing MCA to represent both management and labor) enabled MCA to emerge as a dominant force in television and pop culture with its acquisition of Universal Studios led for decades by Lew Wasserman from Cleveland. According to Abe Rosenthal, “Punch” Sulzberger and Korshak were friends. Korshak and Wasserman reportedly spoke by phone several times each day with neither taking any notes.

 Former president of Goldman Sachs, Cohn is leading the administration’s effort to roll back a fiduciary rule designed to preclude advisers on retirement accounts from steering customers into expensive products and strategies when comparable lower-cost options are available.

 Akin to Saudi-supported madrassas that train impressionable youth to become extremists in the Muslim faith, Schneerson-directed education stresses the unimportance of non-religious education and focuses on religious studies (“limmudei kodesh”).

 In the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, phony WMD reporting was repeatedly featured on the front page of The New York Times, the nation’s “paper of record,” by (Jewish) journalist Judith Miller. Only after the invasion began did the (Jewish) publisher of the Times offer an apology for Miller’s reporting that relied on reports provided by Iraqi liar Ahmad Chalabi who was groomed for that role by (Jewish) neocons Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz. Chalabi was first sponsored in the U.S. in 1991 by self-described Jewish Zionist Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Arizona Senator John McCain. The 2008 release, Guilt By Association—How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War (aka “the McCain Book”) features three chapters chronicling the production of McCain’s political career by (Jewish) organized crime in Arizona. Well prior to the war-catalyzing crisis of 9/11 that gained traction for the Clash narrative, Miller played a key role in shutting down the Islamic Studies Program at the Aspen Institute. Chalabi never apologized for his lies; instead he described himself (and Miller) as “heroes in error.” At the The Washington Post, blogger Jennifer Rubin is now playing a fact-displacing role similar to Judith Miller. In response to facts I provided her, she smeared me as an “anti-Semite.” Several chapters from Guilt By Association are posted on www.hiddentaxonhumanity.com.
