Now, ok, call me a racist, an antisemite. Today I'd say it is a definition of somebody who reflects. Not every liberal is liberal, since "liberal" means "free", coming from "libre"... as far as I know aren't these the LIBERtarians ?


My problem is simple, as I'm a simple man. I do read stuff and read the letters and names, when it concerns people and politics, and, how funny, I always stumble into the same kind of names.


Cohen, Cohn, Kohn, Cohn, -berg, -witz, -stein and so on.


Now, I take these names and check out where they are and what position they have in ANY government. Ok. I look at the US first, since it is basically, to us Europeans, a multicultural society, where everybody can fit in and get his paradise. Is that so ?


Ok. I take Cohen for example. There is Leonard Cohen, ok. That one seems to have been a rather neutral and likeable person. But then you have people like "Greenberg", "Zuckerberg", "Horowitz", "Kissinger", "Koch", "Rosenstein", "Kushner", "Bloomberg" etc. etc. and Roy Cohn. The Trump guy.


And the I ask myself: Is there a connection to, maybe, NetanYahoo ? 


How is it possible that so many people of apparently the same race (?), or is it ideology ? can be so high up in governments and economy while Browns, Smiths, Jones's, or others are so nonexistent in a country which apparently is made out of mainly Anglophones ? 




Tell me. I'd like to know if there's a discrimination of a majority in favor of a minority on the reason of networking and personal wealth. And the mercy of being born into a persecuted people. Even after 70 years good stuff. If I could ask Amshel, I would.


The mercy of being clever and ruthless. That's what other's lack. Morals ? Fuck it.


Maybe Bill Gates can tell.


And when somebody calls me a Nazi again I tell him only: You have not understood the last 70 years of geopolitics.


I'm not a Nazi. But I can't accept when some people put themselves above others. Especially not when they are the same assholes as we are but don't admit it.

"And when somebody calls me a Nazi again I tell him only: You have not understood the last 70 years of geopolitics."
It's clear to me that, when people respond this way, their comprehension of geopolitical history ends with a Spielberg or/and Polanski product, especially if they invoke an association of gas chambers to Nazis. 
My response to the Nazi label is often, "I'd rather be called a Nazi than a Jew."  At least Nazis did what they said and said/say what they believe(d).

I can say that certain ethnic groups are predisposed to control than others. I’m Italian and let’s face it so are just about all mob members. But I’m not one of them but you have to admit “those Italians” are quite scary. I remember once as a kid asking my Italian Grandmother if she knew anyone in the mob. She very much didn’t like the question given she smacked me on the head. Definitely was a sore point for her.

I was thinking that maybe Anglophones did not excel at the intricacies of Republican government, banking, movie production, Fortune 500 business  operation, Mainstream Media, university administration, etc.
It is quite a feat for 2% of the population to exceed 90% in some of those fields. They must have all worked their butts off in college.
I try not to notice that those same people are always pushing for war. 
Actually, I don't notice those things because it is racist to notice things like that. Definitely, I did not notice anything. Only a racist would recognize patterns.

If you were in the mob, you might have a six-figure salaried job.
Good answer, but I'd settle for neither.  
Have you looked at any magazine or newspaper mastheads lately?  I didn't start out being anti-Semitic, but I get tired of Jewishness in my face, just as I get tired of government in my face.  They don't have a monopoly on having been persecuted but act as if they do.  Professional masochists.  "Let's you and him fight.  We'll lend other people's money to both sides and run the cameras."
Every time I say I oppose war, I get reminded of Hitler.  Well, the Jews (Rothschilds) funded Hitler, from what I understand.  People disdain Iran because it's a theocracy.  Isn't Israel a theocracy, too?  What's the difference? Different rules for different gods?  Whose god is the right one?

My hypothesis comes from medieval European history when the Church gave being in business a bad way to get to heaven. Business was the niche for the Jews in this society. Not only that, the Jews understood a pogrom could happen anytime, it was best to stash a little wealth. Christians, meanwhile, were buying indulgences and staying poor and uneducated!
What we see today is a centuries-long cultural trait of business, investing, networking, and education. So statistically speaking, a lot of Jews are in these fields whereas coal miners in West Virginia haven't had this history.

Dave Volek,
My maternal grandmother had a similar theory.
I see that people are staying away from this article.
I think that the concern about a small group influencing the country to keep going to war, should be looked at. 
Should our government officials reflect the makeup of the population better? 
Do dual citizens have dual loyalties?
The US may have similar outlook to many other countries, but none could be identical.

SEF..Cohen has not been Trumps "personal attorney" or as he is known at Trump Tower "Tom" (a godfather reference) he has only been around since 2006 or so. 
He himself is from a wealthy family on Long Island with some interesting background to the "russian mafia". He grew up that way. Now the story goes he married into the Schusterman family, a cab owning family from the Ukraine. Mr Schusterman and his two partners were all convicted of money laundering related charges in 1993.
One way or the other this is how Cohen met Trump..some say its due to a silent partnership with the father in law. who knows?
But Cohen was somehow able to buy a 1m condo unit at Trump World Tower in 2001, convince his family, and in-laws to do the same. Trump liked his initiative and the fact he could turn a profit. He further bought several Trump properties and had multiple people do the same over time.
It is the first condo and something to do with a 350,000 payment from someone named maklahov? that people question.  No real history there...not sure. 
There is a fed unit called "Red Star" and apparently it was common knowledge that Cohens father in law funneled money into Trump ventures in the Sunny Isles Beach development (FL). There are 6 buildings there and one in Brighton Beach.  This was apparently one of Cohens jobs for Trump.  1/3 of the properties are owned by LLCs and apparently the street names are all in Russian.  They call it "little Russia".   Now this is where you would note the relationship of Felix Sater (the guy who has Kremlin connections) and Cohen who had been friends for many many years. Their profit turnover for Trump properties is notorious.
It was this friendship and his family background that has brought so much ?$ into the forefront now.
Cohen isnt Trump's attorney though, does not and has never represented him in court, zero appearances. But he fields all the questions on Russia or illegal matters since taking his current position in 2011.
If this guy from long island has that many connections and Trump himself has his own long time Italian family ties,  no wonder people were intimidated.   I remember the stories about Trump looonnng before Cohen, he had another guy..named Roy Cohn, a cold hearted attorney from the McCarthy era who taught Trump his attack, counter attack and never apologize strategy.  He also introduced him to Tony Salerno boss of the Genovese crime family who was a client. Trump and Salerno did a good bit of business together when he was coming up in NYC.
Anyway Trump has always had a "guy".  Cohen is just the one for the past few years.

Sorry if I misled you.  I don't have a magazine but read lots of them.  I always look at mastheads to see who controls editorial content, and I always want to know where the magazine is published.  Most are published in New York.  Interestingly, the economist, the British publication that is so highly regarded, does not have a masthead.  That anonymity renders it suspect, in my mind.  There seems to be a trend to omit mastheads.  I think this reduces credibility and accountability.
Thanks for the praise.

I agree with Dave.  The entertainment industry was more or less left to the Jews and Italians in the early days.  The French had their fingers into it as well.  It shouldn't be surprising that they continue to control the industry.  
Jews are represented well beyond their numbers.  They are the leading researchers in academics.   We should not begrudge them for that.  Nay.  We should celebrate the achievements and learn to emulate whatever it is that pushes them to greatness.

Your understanding is incorrect, Katherine.  
Most of the Nazi Party’s funding came from its own members through the form of dues.  Hitler also charged fees for speaking engagements, as did others like Otto Strasser (a good speaker in his own right).
The Nazi Party did receive some donations from big business but they preferred other right-wing groups.
I honestly don’t know where this Rothschilds stuff comes from.

What is it that you wish, Stone-Eater?  Any apocalypse that wipes out the US will take Europe with it.
I don’t wish for war, I think most sane people don’t want that.  Trump needs to slow his roll in regards to Russia, there are certain realities that he needs to deal with.  No one wants a war over Syria but if Russian personnel die in an American attack....or if US forces and Russian forces clash.....the results are too ghastly to think about.
I don’t really get you, Stone-Eater.  You seem to think the US is the cause of all the world’s ills yet most of the crap in the Middle East, Africa and East Asia are the results of European colonization and interference.  The US remained mostly isolationist until after WW II, which, I’ll remind you, was started by a European power that attempted to expand in areas that didn’t belong to it.  
Keep that in mind, will you?

Until the shit hit the high-powered fan, the fact that Trump's Mr. Fix-it was Jewish was supposed to mean that Trump was okay with Jewish people.
I'm going to say either the job of defending each and every one of Trump's social crimes is just a thankless and never-ending task or perhaps, Mr. Cohen is experiencing burn-out and if Trump wishes to survive current and new challenges, he might look out for a team of young, aggressive attorneys with a proven track record.

@Katherine Otto:
”Well, the Jews (Rothschilds) funded Hitler, from what I understand.“
Your understanding is incorrect, Katherine.
Jeffrey, thanks for the correction.
The Nazi party did receive some money early on, even before Hitler.  But, it was small amounts, and  intent was to embarrass the Bruning government.  Hitler resurrected List's economy methods = industrial capitalism.  This type of economy uses state credit, which funnels into industry.  It bypasses "financial markets" and private banking credit.  England and their Jews go bezerk when they cannot make their cut on "international" trade, or have other nations go into debt marked in their unit.  
Between 33 and 38 tax roles in Germany increased 3X.  Mefobills were a hidden mechanism, whereby the Reichsbank discounted said bills when presented.  Discounting is a fancy word for paying off.  
At first the bill is presented to industry to then produce something.  Industry can then take out loans against the bill.  These loans pay for production.  After production is completed, the bill is presented for discount.  Reichbank creates new reichsmarks which finds the bill.  The Bill is then torn up.  These new reichsmarks then pay off the original loan, or they are spent into the economy.   Later they are taken up in taxes.  
Note how new reichsmarks found new production, and hence it was non inflationary.
There is no way that Rothschilds could stimulate German economy to such a degree that tax roles increased 3X.  It was German money that stimulated the German economy.  
Jewish money masters may be sneaky and devious, but the thing they FEAR THE MOST, is sovereign money.  There is a reason Germany was attacked in WW1 (List's economy) and in WW2 (List's economy resurrected).  Finance capitalism does not want industrial capitalism to succeed anywhere. 
Banksters absolutely do not want a country issuing its own credit, and funneling it into the commons or self grown industry.   Banksters are in the business of creating new debt instruments to then keep a population in bondage.  A sovereign money type like  Mefobills, pays off debts.   Germany had no great depression, and had full employment.  
MEFOBILLS Added Apr 12, 2018 - 1:53am
 Christians, meanwhile, were buying indulgences and staying poor and uneducated!
It is always good to get cause and effect in the right order.  The main reason Luther was so pissed off at Catholic Church was due to indulgences.  If you have read any Luther, then you know his ire was especially aimed at Jews.  Why?
Our Jewish friends had sidled up to Roman clergy and induced them into debts.  "Hey how about a loan, your flock could use some new ...whatever."  Simple minded Catholic Clergy fell for it, and of course debts grew beyond the ability to pay.  To get out of debt bondage, the Church came up with the indulgence scheme.
Don't confuse "simple mindedness and altruism" with Jewish "sharking"  and predatory practices.  Consciously engaging in the usury mechanism makes the Jews the guilty party here, not the Catholic Church.   The indulgences were cynical also, so evil beget evil.  
Our Jewish friends used these same practices in Greece, before Solons reforms.  These debts grew and put Greek farmers into slavery.  These former farmers then were worked to death in the silver mines of Lydia.

I agree with Dave.  The entertainment industry was more or less left to the Jews and Italians in the early days.
One of the characteristics of Jews in ALL societies they inhabit is to be attracted to the press/movie/media arena.  One reason given for this is to then create a narrative that makes their in-group safe in host country. 
Oligarch Jews in Russia in 90's aimed straight for Russian media - so you have a recent example of their behavior.  
1920's Berlins decent into debauchery was promoted with Jewish hands, in the same way that Hollywood and Porno today has Jewish hands.

 Most are published in New York.  Interestingly, the economist, the British publication that is so highly regarded, does not have a masthead.  
New York has the nick name "Jew York."  Why?  There was a large immigrant wave from 1880 to 1926 or so.  Then there was an immigration cut-off.   Why?  These particular Jews tried to Bolshevize the country, and Congress of that day was not going to have it.  In order to assimilate this indigestible element,, they figured would take time.  Hence immigration cut-off.   These particular eastern european jews from Poland and Pale of settlement used Kol-Niedre to lie about their status, and pretended to be Christians.  
For reasons I explain earlier, Jews attach themselves to the press organs of societies they inhabit.  If you don't think in terms of in-groups being an evolutionary construct, then wake the hell up.
People do form in groups, and Jewish in-groups behavior is well document throughout history and cannot be argued against.
The economist magazine is a ROTHSCHILD publication.  In that Britain has long served as a host for Jews, then one could conflate and say it was British, but that wouldn't be explicitly accurate.  
Usually the covers of "Economist" have messages embedded in imagery, a Cabala technique of signaling their occult message.

It is difficult for men of good character, with malice towards no one, to believe that some groups developed ways to live off of other groups.
Because they are unable to ascribe predatory behaviors to other groups, they rationalize.
Those rationalizations become narratives and conventional wisdom.
My creed does not allow me to persecute or treat any human being with anything other than dignity and respect.
My little little sister was an amazing angler. Some family friends had a small lake/pond with good fishing. My sister could have fished it out. 
She was limited to 4 fish, and then everyone else got a shot.
Just as Caucasians face reverse discrimination because some groups are not as competitive, society may have to consider laws that balance society from the damaging effects of groups that 'evolved' to prey on other societies.
I am very sorry to report that I see a lot of rationalization.

A nations economy is something like your body.  It is dynamic and always in motion.  It uses energy and has outputs.  Anything complex also has ways of sampling and feedback, otherwise it goes out of control.  There also has to be intelligence.
So, if an economy is organized to steal through prices, then the feedback mechanism is perverted.  If Oligarchy inserts itself into the brain (government), then the brain is perverted.
Biological parasitism is a good analogy for what happens to an economy.   So, people blame "America" or "Russia" but what really happens is that small predatory 'GROUPS" invade the body politic and make it go insane.  
Does anybody really believe that Russia's long nightmare of Bolshevism was good for the "body."  A parasite had inserted itself and in order to protect its pyramid position in society, it killed of any threats.  Hence, there were some 20M people killed in the Gulags.  These people killed were Christians or any other out-group that was a threat to the in-group.
The U.S. is well on its way toward this same status, as a tiny Oligarchical minority is taking rents and absorbing all of the  nations's economic surplus.  Government has now centralized on Washington, and your vote really doesn't matter.  Propaganda is being issued through a megaphone of "corporate media."  Who owns the media?
These same like-minded  plutocrats are infested in Brussels, forcing formerly European sovereign nations into compliance they don't want.
With regards to America "acting out" that is alwasy against the will of the people.  The parasite has seized the reins of power, and thus this "acting-out" continues despite voting to stop it.  
The parasite is many actors working in concert.  In this case it is in-groups with emphasis on the plural.   It is extraction industries (oil and gas), finance (Wall Street and London), AIPAC,  and MIC.
The Deep State is all of the above, and Shadow Government is a small part of deep state which is rogue CIA/FBI/NSA.
MIC wants their nearly trillion in tax revenue.  OIL and GAS work closely with finance due to petrodollar.  AIPAC represents Israel, Jewish and Financial interests. (You cannot be elected unless AIPAC sanctions and gives ok.)  
If you doubt the Israel lobby and AIPAC, then read Mearsheimer's book on Israeli lobby.  
We don't know who the dual shitizens are in our government, but since the late 60's our Israeli friends have carved out a legal exception for themselves.  They don't have to reveal their dual loyalties.
Now I get back to the biological analogy of a parasite making the brain malfunction.  
Let's be a little more intelligent and discerning with our magnifying glass, rather than blaming whole nations and peoples rather than elements within.

I stand corrected, and thank you for the explanation.  Your grasp of finance and the difference between sovereign finance and debt is over my head, but I'm getting glimmers of understanding.  It leaves me with the question of what can be done about it.
I need to read up on such things as "List's economy."  Also, is "industrial capitalism" what we call "fascism"?  What are the "indulgences" that Luther opposed?  
I've also read that American corporations, like Ford, did exceedingly well in 30's era Germany, producing German war machines and the like.  What you wrote above helps explain it.
Now I know where you get your pen name.

I agree the system is rotten. While those calling for protest may be well meaning their gestures mean nothing. Certain sympathetic politicians might nod their approval but they are no match for the oligarchs that like the world as is. Why? Because they’ve done so stunningly well over the past 30 years as the masses have been shoved into debt peonage hell.
Since everyone needs to justify their means of existence, including politicians and the press we are presented with nonstop spectacle. Everything from the porn star that screwed Trump to the supposedly evil Russians.
The sad thing is the real power is actually resides with the masses. If tomorrow people walked away from their debt peonage the entire illegal debt induced Ponzi scheme would fold like a cheap tent. The elites would become paupers overnight.
But that’s not going to happen until a crash beyond anything we’ve ever experienced. Even that could easily lead to nuclear war or an even more oppressive form of totalitarianism. Revolutions rarely work out good.

I need to read up on such things as "List's economy."  Also, is "industrial capitalism" what we call "fascism"?  What are the "indulgences" that Luther opposed?  
Industrial Capitalism was also used in America, and it was called the "American System" by Henry Clay.  It's leading economic thinker was Peshine Smith.  Both Smith and  Frederich List thought the same and had same economic methods.
The American system was killed off in 1913 with advent of progressive era acts (Woodrow Wilson).  This converted the economy to financial capitalism, of which we operate under today.   Germany's industrial economy was killed off when America entered WW1 in 1917.   Banking Illuminists use Financial Capitalism to take usury on the world, to then fund their operations.   These same people funded Boslshevism into existence in Russia 1917.
I've also read that American corporations, like Ford, did exceedingly well in 30's era Germany, producing German war machines and the like.  What you wrote above helps explain it.
You also have to understand the Henry Ford was Jew-Wise, as anybody who has read his Dearbourn Letters knows.  He did not want the U.S. entering into war with Germany.  Henry simply wanted to do business with Germany in peacetime.  Ford plants already in Germany were converted, and of course this happened in the same way that GM factories were converted to make war material in the U.S.     After war broke out, no doubt any profits made in a Ford factory would NOT go back to U.S. stock holders, but instead cycle within German economy.  Please also consider that the Ford Foundation has been invaded by our Cabala friends, and this is something they love to do, to take over their adversary.
Fascism is government directing corporations. 
Industrial Capitalism is Government making Capital (money and human resource) available for private corporations.  This includes making sure people are trained for industry.  There is a difference.
Catholic church due to its debts - especially to Jews, started extracting wealth from its flock.  Indulgences were things the clergy would do for money.  You paid the clergy for special dispensations, especially the reduction of sin.  
Jews have been used as foot-soldiers for the Global Mafia.  It goes by different names e.g. Globalists, Illuminists, Mammon.  Cabala is the over-arching religion.  Off shoots are Zohar and Hermeticism.
These Magick Relgions go all the way back to Egypt, and are the "hidden verbal tradition" of the Pharisees.

You don't understand. I don't give a shit about -isms and ideologies anymore, I'm too old for that. Liberals, Progressives, conservatives, libertarians, communists, socialists, so what ?
I look at what people DO, not what they say. When they ACT, no matter what it is, it's ok for me. And people who do not act but just write or speak are ..... useless.
I'm 60 now, and I don't want to waste time anymore with people who don't ACT.

Flying Junior,
I have met self-educated men like MEFOBILLS before.
It matters not to me if he is American or not, but I believe he is.
America has been hijacked. I have had to do a lot of soul-searching because of that.

Just tell who the fuck you are in Profile.  Then it becomes easier for people to understand your POV.

I took you to task for you holocaust denial on the other thread.
Please report.
Good night.
Pardero Added Apr 13, 2018 - 4:35am
Flying Junior,
I saw it.
I do not normally even consider things like the Holocaust. People that I make common cause with, took positions. I am a team player and took a position with them. I can't be silent when my friends take principled positions.
Don't worry, I will never attend anything like a Nazi rally. That isn't my style. 
The Holocaust thing is used to drive a wedge between what could be a brotherhood of tribes.

Thanks for the explanation.  It's clear that something has gone terribly wrong with our economic system, and you confirm things I've known or suspected.  You also fill in a lot of blanks and make me aware of how little I know, especially about European history.  
I'm particularly intrigued by the distinction between "industrial capitalism" and "finance capitalism."  Industrial capitalism makes sense to a point, but the US government and I disagree about what should be produced.  
Stone-Eater Added Apr 14, 2018 - 6:19am
The difference between industrial and finance capitalism is that the latter contains only hot air.

Hey Stone,
Here is my latest comment that I posted on the FIELD NEGRO about Cohen.  I had read Cohen, Stormy and his goombahs on Digby's Hullabaloo this morning.  Hilarious parody for American TV viewers of video taken of Cohen walking in downtown Manhattan.
Digby posted a decent takedown of Michael Cohen entitled, rel="nofollow">Cohen, Stormy and His Goombahs. It is good information if a little bit biased. I also asked the Great Gazoogol if Cohen was under criminal investigation and found an article on that explained just what it is our rocknroll right-wing lawyer is up against.

But it was a little video on twitter quoted by Digby that had me laughing my ass off. Cohen is seen walking down the street in downtown Manhattan. Looking very shady and suspicious indeed. Unaware that he was being filmed. The soundtrack is the legendary opening sequence music to The Sopranos played while Tony is driving his Escalade through the neighborhoods of Jersey. "Woke up this morning..." So after walking about two blocks, Cohen comes upon his buddies sitting in chairs at a sidewalk café. His face brightens. One of the Goombahs gives up his chair so Cohen can sit down and hang with his buddies.

rel="nofollow">Comedy gold.
It does not appear that many of your commenters are aware at all just who Michael Cohen is.
