Vanity Fair's `Top 100' seems to confirm age-old
`canards' about `Jewish power'
Michael Collins Piper
f you think
that the United States is run by a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant
(WASP) elite, think again. The reality is very much otherwise,
according to an old-line American magazine that did, indeed,
once rank as a voice of the so-called “WASP” establishment.
Fair—the stylish monthly now owned by the billionaire
Zionist Newhouse family—has just published its annual list of
the 100 most powerful people in America, what Vanity Fair calls
“the New Establishment.”
this amazing list reveals is a reality that many will find hard
to accept: America’s “New Establishment” is overwhelmingly
dominated by Jewish figures or those who are on the payroll of
or dependent upon Jewish families and financial interests that
bankroll the powerful Israeli lobby in America. That
conclusion—however “offensive” or “controversial” in the eyes of
some people—is inescapable.
on Vanity Fair’s listing from the position of 1-100,
persons known to be Jewish occupy 53% of the power positions.
However, there are actually 106 names on the list (with two
names listed side by side in five places) and with the
additional names (four of the six being Jewish), there are 57
individuals known to be Jewish listed.
depending upon how one calculates, either 53% (or 54% including
all those listed) of the most powerful members of “the New
Establishment”—as perceived by Vanity Fair—are
Jewish.And it should be noted that Vanity Fair’s
assessment of who constitutes “the New Establishment” is one
that critics would be hard-pressed to dispute.
fact that a Jewish-owned publication has published the names of
these Jewish power brokers (without specifically citing their
ethnic and religious heritage) is interesting, especially since
Israel’s prestigious newspaper, The Jerusalem Post, on
Oct. 11, 2007, heralded publication of the list, saying in a
headline that “Jewish power dominates [at the] Vanity Fair
[list]. The reporter for the Post, Nathan Burstein,
a list of “the world’s most powerful people,” 100 of the
bankers and media moguls, publishers and image makers who
shape the lives of billions. It’s an exclusive, insular
club, one whose influence stretches around the globe but is
concentrated strategically in the highest corridors of
power. More than half its members, at least by one count,
a list, in other words, that would have made earlier
generations of Jews jump out of their skins, calling
attention, as it does, to their disproportionate influence
in finance and the media.
matters worse, in the eyes of many, would no doubt be the
identity of the group behind the list—not a pack of fringe
anti-Semites but one of the most mainstream, glamorous
publications on the newsstands. The list would seem to
conform to all the traditional stereotypes about areas of
the “mainstream” media in the United States has failed to note
the Jewish predominance on the list— which can correctly be
called predominance, since Jewish people are said to be less
than even 3% of the American population—the news about the
list has been commented upon in American Jewish community
Aaron, editor of The Chicago Jewish News said that his
readers should “feel very, very good about” the news that their
co-religionists are so powerful in America. In the Vanity
Fair list, which is reproduced here and annotated with
factual details regarding those names on the list, AFP
has indicated the Jewish names in boldface, although it is
possible that there are other Jewish names on the list, but
there is no firm research available confirming it. Also, note,
for example, that media baron Rupert Murdoch— who appears at
number one on the list—is not included here as being Jewish, for
the reason that reports that his mother was Jewish have never
been fully confirmed, although it has long been an article of
faith on the Internet—perhaps in error—that Murdoch is Jewish).
his ethnic antecedents, Murdoch has been a front-line supporter
of Israel and the global Zionist cause—no surprise considering
the fact that his primary financial backers in his rise to power
were the powerful Rothschild, Bronfman and Oppenheimer
families—all very definitely Jewish. (An account of the rise of
Murdoch and his media intrigues appear in The Judas Goats.)
the release of the list, several Internet sources have alleged
that several other names on the list (that are not indicated
here as being Jewish) are Jewish; however, AFP’s research does
not indicate that this is so. The bottom line is that the
preponderance of the names are indisputably Jewish, whether the
disputed names are or are not.
significant is that the roughly 45-50% of the names on the list
that are not definitely known to be Jewish or that are clearly
non-Jewish are the names of individuals who are directly
beholden to Jewish families and financial interests for their
own power and privilege. Rupert Murdoch is perhaps the most
prominent among this group.
in this realm, is Warren Buffett—listed at No. 6. Buffet is not
Jewish, but he has long been in partnership with the Rothschild
family and is a primary of the powerful Washington Post-Newsweek
the Post is best known as the fiefdom of the
American-based Jewish Meyer-Graham family, the evidence
indicates that primary behind-the-scenes investors behind the
influential Post empire have always operated in the
sphere of Rothschild-connected banking interests operating on
American soil. The Meyer/ Grahams, themselves, are related to
the powerful San Francisco-based billionaire Jewish heirs of the
Levi Strauss clothing kingdom.
of those listed are either actors, entertainers and television
and news media personalities who—while now wealthy as a
consequence of their fame—owe their fame (and wealth) to the
patronage of the owners of the mass media which made these 17
figures household names: for example, individuals such as Fox
News agitator Bill O’Reilly and Steven Colbert, among others.
listed—Pinault, listed at 29, and Gagosian and Pigosi—listed at
84 and 86—are figures in the art world, which is known to be
dominated by Jewish interests.
others, such as Bernard Arnault (listed at 8), Giorgio Armani
(listed at 37), Miuccia Prada (at 44), Karl Lagerfeld (at 52),
Martha Stewart (at 54), Oscar de la Renta (at 53) Diego Della
Valle (at 63) and Donatella Versace (at 81) are figures in the
fashion and perfume industries—both of which are totally
dependent on garment manufacturing (dominated almost exclusively
by Jewish families and financial interests) and on department
store distribution and the advertising industry, both of which
are likewise dominated by the same elements.
of those listed—Bill Clinton and his former vice president Al
Gore—are only politicians—note the clarification “only”—both of
whom were installed in their positions of power through the
patronage of Zionist financial interests. For his own part,
Gore’s daughter, Karenna, has married the great-great grandson
of Jewish plutocrat Jacob Schiff, a satellite of the powerful
Rothschild family. Informed students of history know that Schiff
was instrumental in financing the Bolshevik Revolution in
others are officers of media giants dominated by Jewish
financial interests, acting as well-paid “fronts” for the
controllers behind the scenes. For example, Richard Parsons, an
African-American, is listed at 18th place, but he is no more
than a front man at Time-Warner.
as those who know the history of Time-Warner are well aware,
that media empire has been dominated since at least the late
1960s, of elements linked to the organized crime syndicate of
Jewish gangster, Meyer Lansky (who worked closely with Israel’s
Mossad) and to the Lansky-connected liquor empire of Sam
Bronfman, longtime chief of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), and
his son, Edgar Bronfman, who recently retired as head of the WJC.
has been widely asserted that the idea that Jewish families and
financial interests were very powerful was “an old wives’s
tale,” a “ridiculous anti-Semitic canard with no basis in
reality,” said to be the product of a “discredited czarist
forgery.” However, the new Vanity Fair assessment
suggests otherwise and seems to confirm the theme of this
author’s work, The New Jerusalem, which had already
documented in detail what Vanity Fair has now
confirmed: “Zionist power in America.”
