War Profiteers and Israel's Bank

A Primer

Israel's Founding Bank

Israel's Prime Minister is not the final authority in the Zionist project. Politicians come and go. The final authority is at an immensely huge pool of capital. The specialists in pools of capital are banks.

It's well-known which bank is behind the Zionist project. That is the Rothschild bank. Jacob Rothschild re-acknowledged this responsibility in 2017, on the 100th anniversary of the "Balfour Declaration", which was in a letter to his uncle Walter Rothschild. Jacob Rothschild stated that Israel was funded specifically for "that sacred goal, the return of Israel to its ancestral homeland" (at 8:50 in video).

Everyone knew the Zionist project would require a war, despite the secretly arranged "Balfour declaration", and the unfinished, coerced UN process to partition Palestine. For details see War Profiteers and the Roots of the War on Terror at this website.

Thus, a major expense in establishing Israel would have been weapons, ammunition, uniforms, and other supplies for the Zionist army to take over Palestine. And before the military takeover, there were the well-known operations of the Jewish terrorist organizations, against the British and the Palestinians, and false-flag operations in the Arab world to stir up the conflict.

There would have also been political strings to pull so that an army and arms could be shipped across Europe to Palestine without interferance by governments along the way. Getting the Balfour letter written was a long, drawn-out, secret process, involving both London and Washington.

All these would have been easily within the capacity of the Rothschild bank. The Rothschild bank was experienced at financing wars, making money from both sides of wars. In one contract the winner had to repay the loans of the loser along with their own. And having branch offices in the major European capital cities simplified dealing with all sides, and with transfers of funds between countries.

The international Rothschild bank was established by Mayer Rothschild. He was the son of a moneylender in Frankfurt, and starting working with his father at an early age. He then apprenticed at a bank owned by the Oppenheimer family in Hanover. After his father died, he took over and expanded his father's business. He also changed his name from Bauer to Rothschild.

Much of the material here on the Rothschild bank is from "Secrets of the Federal Reserve", especially the chapter titled "The House of Rothschild". This can be purchased online, or downloaded free at
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

Through personal connections Mayer Rothschild became a close associate of Prince William IX of Hesse-Hanau, "one of the richest royal houses in Europe, which gained its' wealth by the hiring out of Hessian soldiers to foreign countries for vast profits. ... He soon discovers that loaning money to governments and royalty is more profitable than loaning to individuals, as the loans are bigger and are secured by the nation's taxes."
http://rense.com/general88/hist.htm

"When the Elector of Hesse earned a fortune by renting Hessian mercenaries to the British to put down the rebellion in the American colonies, Rothschild was entrusted with this money to invest. He made an excellent profit both for himself and the Elector, and attracted other accounts. In 1785 he moved to a larger house, 148 Judengasse, a five story house known as 'The Green Shield' which he shared with the Schiff family."
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

Mayer Rothschild had five sons who he trained in banking, and dispatched them to five capital cities of Europe to establish branch banks.

Mayer's son Nathan Rothschild catapulted the London branch to banking dominance in Britain by starting a false panic, sinking the price of British treasury notes. He then secretly bought up all the available notes. When the truth became known, their value immediately rose back up, creating an overnight fortune for Rothschild. Rothschild started the panic by hinting that Wellington would lose the battle of Waterloo to Napoleon. He already knew Wellington had won. Rothschild's grandson later sued in an effort to suppress this story. However, the judge ruled the story was true and threw the case out.

Profits from the Waterloo panic scam gave Rothschild control of the Bank of England. The Bank of England is a private bank, not a government bank. It was chartered by King William of Orange as a "central" bank, which means it has the power to create new money and loan it out at interest. The Amsterdam bankers who put William on the throne were principal shareholders and beneficiaries of the new bank, as was King William. This was a classic example of an ancient phenomenon wherein rich men "behind the scenes" determine the fates of governments.
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

As an economy grows, the increase in the number of transactions per day requires an increase in the amount of money in circulation. How does new money get created and into the economy? With the (privately owned) Bank of England in place, the government would request a loan from the bank. The bank, as stipulated in the charter granted to it by the government, would then manufacture the amount of money requested, and put that money in its own account. At this point the bank - its owners - legally own this money; it's theirs. They then lend this newly created money to the government at interest. The government, over time, repays this loan with interest. For creating this new money and servicing this loan, the bankers receive a "fee" equal to the amount of the loan plus interest.

This was the money-making machine taken over by the Rothschild bank. All new English money created became immediately the property of the Rothschild bank. Before the bankers of Amsterdam colluded with William of Orange, making him king of England and setting up this deal, for several hundred years the English money had simply been created by the king, without all new money first going directly into bankers purses. And the economy had thrived. It's easy to see that this arrangement would deliver the Rothschild bank vast wealth.

In America

A major European bank with branches in multiple countries would reasonably want to invest in the growing economy of the US. A bank who owned all the new money created in England might want to set up a similar arrangement in America. This would ultimately take shape as the Federal Reserve Bank. Like the Bank of England, it would be a privately owned bank. It would manufacture money, which it would immediately own. The government (and others) would then borrow this money at interest.

In 1835 Nathan Rothschild began secretly funding George Peabody, an American banker who opened an office in London. Peabody's banks eventually became the very powerful J.P. Morgan banks, and through them the Rothschild bank acquired a powerful presence in America.

It was also a hidden presence. "{A] considerable anti-Rothschild movement had developed in Europe and the United States which focused on the banking activities of the Rothschild family. Even though they had a registered agent in the United States, August Schoenberg, who had changed his name to Belmont when he came to the United States as the representative of the Rothschilds in 1837, it was extremely advantageous to them to have an American representative who was not known as a Rothschild agent."
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

In 1865 Jacob Schiff opened another avenue of Rothschild influence in America. Jacob Schiff was the son of Moses Schiff, a broker for the Rothschild bank. Mayer Rothschild and Moses Schiff shared a five story house in Frankfurt. So Jacob Schiff literally grew up in the Rothschild house.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_Schiff
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

After training in banking in Germany, Jacob Schiff went to America. He was eventually invited to join the banking house of Kuhn Loeb Company. He married Solomon Loeb's daughter, and in 1875 became head of Kuhn Loeb Company. "He goes on to finance John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company, Edward R. Harriman's Railroad Empire, and Andrew Carnegie's Steel Empire. This is all with Rothschild money."
http://rense.com/general88/hist.htm

"Senator Robert L. Owen had identified [Kuhn Loeb Company] as the representative of the European Rothschilds in the United States."
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

In these ways the Rothschild bank established deep leverage in the foundations of the American economy.

Then the Rothschild bank moved to establish a "Bank of England" type of money-manufacturing deal with the U.S. government. The bank would be called the "Federal Researve Bank". All new U.S. money would be created by them, and go straight into their bank accounts. They would then put this (their) money out into the economy, lending to the government and businesses, and investing in the stock market.

Establishing the Federal Reserve Bank was planned and implemented in secret. The story is told in "Secrets of the Federal Reserve". The published version of "Secrets of the Federal Reserve" contains diagrams showing bank ownerships in the chapter "World War 1".

"Chart I reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J.P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914."

These charts are not in online versions of "Secrets of the Federal Reserve", but are available online at
https://issuu.com/kynize/docs/chart_of_who_owns_the_federal_reser

In the Senate debate on the Federal Reserve Act, Senator Stone said on December 12, 1913,

"I myself have known more than one occasion when bankers refused credit to men who opposed their political views and purposes. When Senator Aldrich and others were going around the country exploiting this scheme, the big banks of New York and Chicago were engaged in raising a munificent fund to bolster up the Aldrich propaganda. I have been told by bankers of my own state that contributions to this exploitation fund had been demanded of them and that they had contributed because they were afraid of being blacklisted or boycotted. There are bankers of this country who are enemies of the public welfare. In the past, a few great banks have followed policies and projects that have paralyzed the industrial energies of the country to perpetuate their tremendous power over the financial and business industries of America."
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

If most of the new money created in the American and British economies has become immediate property of the Rothschild bank, including indirectly through corporate linkages, for over 100 years in America and over 200 years in Britain, it's easy to see how the stupendous resulting wealth could easily afford to buy all the major media and politicians. It becomes easy to see how a thoroughly and professionally researched work like "The Israel Lobby" by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer could disappear from the mainstream media discussion overnight. It becomes easy to see how all political candidates who oppose its agenda could be defeated by overwhelming money and press coverage in the primaries, before the main election even takes place. It becomes easy to see how authors could be hired to write articles and books that perpetuate the cover-up.

And that overwhelming financial control is entirely aside from the financial plundering itself, robbing the British and American people on a massive scale. The banks could be paid a fee for doing the due diligence on granting loans with new, government created money. But all that new money does not need to become the property of the banks. The currency is part of the economic infrastructure, and its creation should benefit the people, not ensnare them.

An excellent, deep and broad account of this money story, including money mechanics, history, and current international events, is in "The Web of Debt" by attorney Ellen Brown. In addition to "Secrets of the Federal Reserve", another book on the secret creation of the Federal Reserve Bank is "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin. Jekyll Island was where the bankers secretly met to draw up their plans.

Media Control

In 1917 Congressman Oscar Callaway alleged that J. P. Morgan had taken control of the major American news outlets.

"Congressman Oscar Callaway lost his Congressional election for opposing US entry into WW 1. Before he left office, he demanded investigation into JP Morgan & Co for purchasing control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of his corporate and banking interests, including profits from US participation in the war. Mr. Callaway alleged he had the evidence to prove Morgan associates were working as editors to select and edit articles, with the press receiving monthly payments for their allegiance to Morgan."
http://washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/1917-j-p-morgan-bought-us-corporate-media-to-be-1s-lying-sacks-of-spin.html

Congressman Callaway's statement in The Congressional Record, February 9, 1917, Vol. 54, pp. 2947-48 said:

"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the United States.

"These 12 men worked the problem out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.

"The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers. ... This policy also included the suppression of everything in opposition to the wishes of the interests served."
http://www.harmlesswise.com/conspiracy/quotes/63

In 1934 Hollywood released a movie called "The House of Rothschild", focused on Nathan Rothschild and the London branch of the bank. Significantly, it left out the Waterloo panic episode (described above). Instead, it portrayed Rothschild as immediately sharing his inside information on the battle of Waterloo, exactly the opposite of what he actually did.

In The Empire of the City, a book about the Rothschild Empire headquartered in the City of London, E.C. Knuth writes, "The fact that the House of Rothschild made its money in the great crashes of history and the great wars of history, the very periods when others lost their money, is beyond question." Footnote 44 in "Secrets of the Federal Reserve".
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/reserve.htm

It's also a fact that a lot of these operations were shrouded in secrecy. Financial "speculation" with inside information is the equivalent of "gambling" with loaded dice. The person who knows the dice are loaded has the inside information. The inside information enables the deception and the swindle.

The Nature of Empire

John Hobson's 1902 classic analysis of Empire shows that big investors drive imperial policies, for their own benefit and at huge cost to the rest of society, including the immense cost of wars. "Imperialism. A Study"
https://oll.libertyfund.org/titles/hobson-imperialism-a-study

The key concepts are laid out in Part I of Chapter IV: "Economic Parasites of Imperialism"

"By far the most important economic factor in Imperialism is the influence relating to investments."

....
"If, contemplating the enormous expenditure on armaments, the ruinous wars, the diplomatic audacity of knavery by which modern Governments seek to extend their territorial power, we put the plain, practical question, Cui bono? the first and most obvious answer is, The investor."

....
"Investors who have put their money in foreign lands, upon terms which take full account of risks connected with the political conditions of the country, desire to use the resources of their Government to minimise these risks, and so to enhance the capital value and the interest of their private investments."

....
"If the special interest of the investor is liable to clash with the public interest and to induce a wrecking policy, still more dangerous is the special interest of the financier, the general dealer in investments. In large measure the rank and file of the investors are, both for business and for politics, the cat's-paws of the great financial houses, who use stocks and shares not so much as investments to yield them interest, but as material for speculation in the money market. In handling large masses of stocks and shares, in floating companies, in manipulating fluctuations of values, the magnates of the Bourse find their gain. These great businesses—banking, broking, bill discounting, loan floating, company promoting—form the central ganglion of international capitalism. United by the strongest bonds of organisation, always in closest and quickest touch with one another, situated in the very heart of the business capital of every State, controlled, so far as Europe is concerned, chiefly by men of a single and peculiar race, who have behind them many centuries of financial experience, they are in a unique position to control the policy of nations. No great quick direction of capital is possible save by their consent and through their agency. Does any one seriously suppose that a great war could be undertaken by any European State, or a great State loan subscribed, if the house of Rothschild and its connections set their face against it?"

....
"Every great political act involving a new flow of capital, or a large fluctuation in the values of existing investments, must receive the sanction and the practical aid of this little group of financial kings. These men, holding their realised wealth and their business capital, as they must, chiefly in stocks and bonds, have a double stake, first as investors, but secondly and chiefly as financial dealers. As investors, their political influence does not differ essentially from that of the smaller investors, except that they usually possess a practical control of the businesses in which they invest. As speculators or financial dealers they constitute, however, the gravest single factor in the economics of Imperialism."

....
"The public financial arrangements for the Philippine war put several millions of dollars into the pockets of Mr. Pierpont Morgan and his friends; the China-Japan war, which saddled the Celestial Empire for the first time with a public debt, and the indemnity which she will pay to her European invaders in connection with the recent conflict, bring grist to the financial mills in Europe; every railway or mining concession wrung from some reluctant foreign potentate means profitable business in raising capital and floating companies. A policy which rouses fears of aggression in Asiatic states, and which fans the rivalry of commercial nations in Europe, evokes vast expenditure on armaments, and ever-accumulating public debts, while the doubts and risks accruing from this policy promote that constant oscillation of values of securities which is so profitable to the skilled financier. There is not a war, a revolution, an anarchist assassination, or any other public shock, which is not gainful to these men; they are harpies who suck their gains from every new forced expenditure and every sudden disturbance of public credit."

....
"The policy of these men, it is true, does not necessarily make for war; where war would bring about too great and too permanent a damage to the substantial fabric of industry, which is the ultimate and essential basis of speculation, their influence is cast for peace, as in the dangerous quarrel between Great Britain and the United States regarding Venezuela. But every increase of public expenditure, every oscillation of public credit short of this collapse, every risky enterprise in which public resources can be made the pledge of private speculations, is profitable to the big money-lender and speculator."

....
"The wealth of these houses, the scale of their operations, and their cosmopolitan organisation make them the prime determinants of imperial policy. They have the largest definite stake in the business of Imperialism, and the amplest means of forcing their will upon the policy of nations."

....
"The direct influence exercised by great financial houses in "high politics" is supported by the control which they exercise over the body of public opinion through the Press, which, in every "civilised" country, is becoming more and more their obedient instrument. While the specifically financial newspaper imposes "facts" and "opinions" on the business classes, the general body of the Press comes more and more under the conscious or unconscious domination of financiers. The case of the South African Press, whose agents and correspondents fanned the martial flames in this country, was one of open ownership on the part of South African financiers, and this policy of owning newspapers for the sake of manufacturing public opinion is common in the great European cities. In Berlin, Vienna, and Paris many of the influential newspapers are held by financial houses, which use them, not primarily to make direct profits out of them, but in order to put into the public mind beliefs and sentiments which will influence public policy and thus affect the money market. In Great Britain this policy has not gone so far, but the alliance with finance grows closer every year, either by financiers purchasing a controlling share of newspapers, or by newspaper proprietors being tempted into finance. Apart from the financial Press, and financial ownership of the general Press, the City notoriously exercises a subtle and abiding influence upon leading London newspapers, and through them upon the body of the provincial Press, while the entire dependence of the Press for its business profits upon its advertising columns involves a peculiar reluctance to oppose the organised financial classes with whom rests the control of so much advertising business."

....
"Such is the array of distinctively economic forces making for Imperialism, a large loose group of trades and professions seeking profitable business and lucrative employment from the expansion of military and civil services, from the expenditure on military operations, the opening up of new tracts of territory and trade with the same, and the provision of new capital which these operations require, all these finding their central guiding and directing force in the power of the general financier."

....
"The play of these forces does not openly appear. They are essentially parasites upon patriotism, and they adapt themselves to its protecting colours. In the mouths of their representatives are noble phrase, expressive of their desire to extend the area of civilisation, to establish good government, promote Christianity, extirpate slavery, and elevate the lower races. Some of the business men who hold such language may entertain a genuine, though usually a vague, desire to accomplish these ends, but they are primarily engaged in business, and they are not unaware of the utility of the more unselfish forces in furthering their ends. Their true attitude of mind is expressed by Mr. Rhodes in his famous description of 'Her Majesty's Flag' as 'the greatest commercial asset in the world.'"

Hobson extends his analysis of Empire to the United States in Part I, Chapter VI: "The Economic Taproot of Imperialism".

"Here is a country which suddenly breaks through a conservative policy, strongly held by both political parties, bound up with every popular instinct and tradition, and flings itself into a rapid imperial career for which it possesses neither the material nor the moral equipment, risking the principles and practices of liberty and equality by the establishment of militarism and the forcible subjugation of peoples which it cannot safely admit to the condition of American citizenship.

"Is this a mere wild freak of spread-eaglism, a burst of political ambition on the part of a nation coming to a sudden realisation of its destiny? Not at all. The spirit of adventure, the American "mission of civilisation," are, as forces making for Imperialism, clearly subordinate to the driving force of the economic factor."

The economic factor also led the House of Rothschild into the opium trade in the Far East. This was carried out by the British East India Company, a consortium of several businesses, each of which handled a different aspect of the overall opium trade. In Hobson's terms, the "general financiers" providing the "central guiding and directing force" were "the Houses of Rothschilds and Warburgs", who "coordinated the banking aspect of this trade."
https://greatgameindia.com/controller-houses-east-india-company-eic-series-part-iv/

This opium trade was forced onto China at gunpoint to create a favorable financial trade balance. There was a great demand for Chinese products in Europe, but little demand for European products in China. China thus wanted gold in payment for its goods, which became a problem for the East India Company finances. The Company found a solution in selling opium to the Chinese, and commandeered a large section of India to grow the opium (wreaking havoc there). The Chinese government, however, was trying to suppress the somewhat new practice of smoking opium because it was having serious negative effects on society. The Company fought two wars with the Chinese to force them to accept the opium trade. Initially the Company had its own army, but eventually arranged for the British Navy to do the job.

Alliance with the Mob

When the Rothschild empire began preparing the ground for the state of Israel, it needed weapons for its terrorist operations in Palestine. It allied with the National Crime Syndicate in America, which combined the Jewish and Italian crime organizations. Meyer Lansky headed the Jewish mob and ultimately the National Crime Syndicate, which became heavily involved in smuggling weapons to Palestine for the Zionist terrorist operations.
https://www.mintpressnews.com/mega-group-maxwells-mossad-spy-story-jeffrey-epstein-scandal/261172/

Lansky had a head for finance, and "was responsible for managing the finances of Lucky Luciano’s heroin smuggling empire." (His role here paralleled that of the Rothschild bank managing the finances of the British East India Company's opium trade.)
https://ordoabchao.ca/volume-four/jfk-assassination#_ednref50

"Between 1932 and 1934 Lansky joined Luciano and Johnny Torrio, among others, in forming the National Crime Syndicate and became one of its major overseers and bankers, often laundering funds through foreign accounts."
....
"He also extended his gambling empire to other areas of the Caribbean and even across the Atlantic to London. He was also into narcotics smuggling, pornography, prostitution, labour racketeering, and extortion and had control of such legitimate enterprises as hotels, golf courses, and a meat-packing plant. Monies were secreted in Swiss banks."
https://www.britannica.com/biography/Meyer-Lansky

As far back as the 1930's Meyer Lansky was running a sexual blackmail operation targeting powerful politicians, police, and judges, including FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. The corruption of these public figures was fundamental to mafia operations, and was partly why Lansky lived essentially immune from prosecution.
https://www.mintpressnews.com/shocking-origins-jeffrey-epstein-blackmail-roy-cohn/260621/

Lansky belonged to a network of very powerful people. These included liquor barons Samuel Bronfman and Lewis Rosenstiel. Rosenstiel had his own sexual blackmail operation, which he eventually turned over to his protege Roy Cohn. Blackmail using underage boys and girls enabled Cohn to become a very influential "fixer" in Washington, D.C., with a social circle that included many prominent people. "Many of the same names that surrounded Cohn until death in the late 1980s would later come to surround Jeffrey Epstein, with their names later appearing in Epstein’s now-infamous 'little black book'."

New York attorney John Klotz investigated Cohn for a case and came to the following conclusion. "Roy Cohn was providing protection. There were a bunch of pedophiles involved. That’s where Cohn got his power from — blackmail."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/shocking-origins-jeffrey-epstein-blackmail-roy-cohn/260621/

Bribery of public officials can obtain a certain level of cooperation. But adding blackmail can gain complete control. The blackmail victim wants to avoid ruining their entire life, and wants to maintain their significant rewards. So they are motivated to stay in their position and go along. Mob control over high-level public decision makers lets the mob operate with impunity. They can even commandeer major public institutions, such as local law enforcement, the FBI, the CIA, the military, and even the Congress to do work for them.

The sexual blackmail operations mentioned above were not isolated cases. There were numerous such operations, connected to the network of moguls, mobsters, and political figures to which Roy Cohn belonged. For example, the network of people smuggling drugs and weapons in the Iran-Contra scandal, including several CIA fronts, "were also trafficking minors for their sexual exploitation and use in sexual blackmail rings."

"Several of these rings made headlines at one point or another over the years — from the 'call boy ring' run by Washington lobbyist Craig Spence, to the Franklin child-sex and murder ring run by Republican operative Larry King, to the scandal that enveloped the Catholic charity Covenant House in the late 1980s."

"Appalling for both the villainous abuse of children itself and the chilling implications of government by blackmail, this tangled web of unsavory alliances casts a lurid light on the political history of the United States from the Prohibition Era right up to the present day and the Age of Trump, a fact made increasingly clear as more and more information comes to light in relation to the Jeffrey Epstein case."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/blackmail-jeffrey-epstein-trump-mentor-reagan-era/260760/

Jeffrey Epstein's patron was Leslie Wexner, who hired him as a financial advisor around 1986. Wexner's mentor was Max Fisher, who allegedly worked with Detroit's Purple Gang. The Purple Gang smuggled Bronfman liquor, and was associated with the National Crime Syndicate. "Wexner was the only publicly acknowledged client of Epstein’s suspicious hedge fund, the source of much of this wealth, and the previous owner of Epstein’s $56 million Manhattan townhouse, which Wexner transferred to an Epstein-controlled entity for free." Wexner had the house outfitted with hidden electronic surveillance equipment upon purchasing it, and shortly thereafter turned it over to Epstein. This house was a precursor to Epstein's famous "Lolita Island", with its hidden surveillance system. So the island was merely an upgrade to an existing system of entrapment for blackmail.
https://www.mintpressnews.com/mega-group-maxwells-mossad-spy-story-jeffrey-epstein-scandal/261172/

In 2008 Epstein escaped from an iron-clad case of child sex trafficking in Florida, with inevitable long prison time, partly through the legal skills of his good friend Alan Dershowitz. There was also very mysterious decision making by Florida prosecutors, which baffled and infuriated the police who had investigated the case and assembled the overwhelming evidence against Epstein. A series of detailed podcasts covering these events is here.
https://www.blackstoneintel.com/podcast

While working for Wexler Epstein traveled in some rarified social circles, and had been introduced to Dershowitz in 1996 at a party on Martha's Vineyard by Lynn Forester, who was to marry Evelyn de Rothschild in 2000. Epstein told Forester that he would like to meet Dershowitz, who was also at the party. Forester fetched Dershowitz and brought him to meet Epstein. Epstein showered Dershowitz with attention, and they became buddies. An account of the meeting begins at 13:10 of this podcast.
https://www.blackstoneintel.com/podcast/episode/78d2d2f6/podcast-8-the-dirty-dershowitz-hit-job-on-jeff-epsteins-victims

Epstein's child sex trafficking story re-surfaced in 2019 when he was re-arrested and put in a federal maximum security prison to await trial. At this time reporting revealed that Epstein had been let go in back in 2008 because prosecutors were told that Epstein was connected to "intelligence", and higher ups wanted him let go. Further reporting revealed that Epstein's child sex trafficking operation was an Israeli Mossad operation to provide blackmail information on very important politicians and others. As noted above, Israel was established by the Rothschild empire, and the Rothschild empire has a history of controlling foreign governments for its benefit.
https://www.mintpressnews.com/ari-ben-menashe-jeffrey-epstein-ghislaine-maxwell-israel-intelligence/262162/

Before Epstein could be put on trial, and the mountains of evidence from his blackmail operation put on public display, Epstein died in his federal maximum security cell. The authorities say it was a suicide. But famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden explained how multiple pieces of evidence point extremely strongly to murder.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxYstvg3SaE
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article236809668.html

But since Epstein's blackmail operation could lead to the heart of darkness in the American (and international) political power structure, and since the evidence is so strongly consistent with murder, Americans aren't buying the suicide story. A Rasmussen poll found that "only 29% of American Adults believe Epstein actually committed suicide while in jail. Forty-two percent (42%) think Epstein was murdered to prevent him from testifying against powerful people with whom he associated." Of the 25% who say they have followed the story very closely, 56% believe Epstein was murdered. Such a coverup might have been believed once upon a time, but not any more.
https://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/august_2019/americans_say_murder_more_likely_than_suicide_in_epstein_case

Here's a conversation between highly respected investigative reporter Matt Taibbi and talk show host Joe Rogan on how blatantly obvious the Epstein murder looks to the general public. They also discuss the peculiar death of the story itself in the mainstream media.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GJaLAIM1Ho

A set of reasons why the Department of Justice will probably not investigate the anomalies in Jeffrey Epstein's death is given by reporter Whitney Webb in the video linked below. Attorney General William Barr was a CIA lawyer who stonewalled the Church committee's investigation into illegal CIA activities, including sexual blackmail operations. He was later Attorney General at the time of the Iran-Contra scandal, when he arranged the pardons of participants in that network, which also involved sexual blackmail as well as drug and weapons smuggling. See the first five minutes of the following video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBN7Xqf7rWI

Who could wield enough influence to get away with murdering a high profile prisoner in a federal maximum security prison? In addition to Attorney General William Barr having a history of covering up illegal CIA activities, the president at the time of the murder was Donald Trump. Trump was at one time a friend of Jeffrey Epstein. Trump was also linked to the mob-CIA-Mossad nexus through Resorts International.

When Trump's Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City (which was originally begun by Resorts International) faced bankruptcy, Trump was financially rescued by the Rothschild empire.

Trump's friendship link to Epstein with his blackmail operation, and his business links to the gambling underworld, could potentially provide the Rothschild empire (behind both) leverage over Trump's decisions. And Trump has certainly been extremely compliant in doing the Rothschild empire's bidding regarding their Israel project. Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, which all previous presidents have refused to do. Trump approved Israel's annexing Syria's Golan Heights, in clear violation of international law. Israel promptly assigned oil and gas rights to Genie Energy, on the board of which sits Jacob Rothchild. Trump has tacitly approved of Israel's future annexation of the West Bank, again in violation of internation law. And Trump executed Israel's extremely provocative plan to assassinate Iranian general Soleimani. The Rothschild empire's Israeli branch is well-known to use assassination as a regular tactic. A thorough article on this is American Pravda: Mossad Assassinations.

Trump's links and endebtedness to the Rothschilds are covered in more detail in an excellent report by independent investigator Jake Morphonios, starting at 11:00 in this video.

The Rothschild empire demonstrated its willingness to blackmail an American president with President Bill Clinton. In that case Israel used recordings of Clinton's phone conversations with Monica Lewinsky to blackmail him into silence on the issue of Israel's illegal land thefts, aka "settlements". Details of that case are given in this website's article War Profiteers and the Roots of the War on Terror.

Clinton already had ties to the CIA's Iran-Contra smuggling operations, which used an airport in Mena, Arkansas while Clinton was governer of Arkansas. Allegedly CIA director Bill Casey, through his emissary William Barr, told Clinton "You and your state have been our greatest asset. Mr. Casey wanted me to pass on to you that unless you fuck up and do something stupid, you’re No. 1 on the short list for a shot at the job that you’ve always wanted."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/genesis-jeffrey-epstein-bill-clinton-relationship/261455/

It's possible that Clinton had little choice but to go along. John Perkins, in his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, has described how the international banking mob will coerce a new president of a financially weaker country into going along. Interviewed on Democracy Now he explained as follows.

"The other thing we do, Amy, and what’s going on right now in Latin America is that as soon as one of these anti-American presidents is elected, such as Evo Morales, who you mentioned, in Bolivia, one of us goes in and says, 'Hey, congratulations, Mr. President. Now that you’re president, I just want to tell you that I can make you very, very rich, you and your family. We have several hundred million dollars in this pocket if you play the game our way. If you decide not to, over in this pocket, I’ve got a gun with a bullet with your name on it, in case you decide to keep your campaign promises and throw us out.'"
....
"[W]hat I’m saying is that, you know, I can make sure that this man makes a great deal of money, he and his family, through contracts, through various quasi-legal means, and I can also — if he doesn’t accept this, you know, the same thing is going to happen to him that happened to Jaime Roldos in Ecuador and Omar Torrijos in Panama and Allende in Chile, and we tried to do it to Chavez in Venezuela and are still trying — that we will send in the people to try to overthrow him, as, in fact, we recently did with the President of Ecuador, or if we don’t overthrow him, we’ll assassinate him. And these people all know the history. They know that this has happened many, many, many times in the past."
....
"I was recruited by the National Security Agency, the one that’s in the news so much today because of spying on people, and I was tested by them, recruited by them."
....
"they put me through a series of tests, personality tests, lie detector, several days, and concluded that I would make a good economic hit man, and they also discovered a number of weaknesses in my character, which they could use then to hook me into the business, and then I ended up working for a private corporation."
....
"Nobody wants to be able to connect the dots. So the NSA, the CIA, these types of organizations often recruit economic hit men and the jackals, the assassins, the 007 types, but they will recruit us, maybe train us, and then turn us over to a private corporation, so that you really can’t make the connection, so that if I were caught at what I was doing in one of these countries, it would not reflect on our government; it would only reflect on the corporation that I worked for."

In Perkins' account there is a private, coordinating organization above the NSA and CIA that is manipulating those agencies to serve private interests.

"We economic hit men, during the last 30 or 40 years, have really created the world’s first truly global empire, and we’ve done this primarily through economics, and the military only coming in as a last resort. Therefore, it’s been done pretty much secretly. Most of the people in the United States have no idea that we’ve created this empire and, in fact, throughout the world it’s been done very quietly, unlike old empires, where the army marched in; it was obvious."

Perkins' reference to "old empires" clearly includes cases like the British East India Company, described above. And the accumulated evidence is that the old empire has merely changed its outward form. Perkins also gives interesting details on how security is bypassed to assassinate top government officials, such as presidents.

One attempt by Wall Street financiers to overthrow a sitting American president has been confirmed by a Congressional investigation. In 1933 they attempted to recruit Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler to lead the effort, but he informed Congress instead. Most of the establishment press belittled the story. As noted above, most of the major establishment press had been captured by the Rothschild empire through the agency of J.P. Morgan. But General Butler had strategically informed a newspaper of the plot, which sent an experienced reporter to interview Butler's contact person for the plot. The reporter confirmed the story, which was then published. Butler later wrote a book, War is a Racket, in which he stated that for most of his military service he had been used as muscle for private corporations. This echoes the British East India company using the British military to enforce its business "deals" abroad.
https://timeline.com/business-plot-overthrow-fdr-9a59a012c32a

As noted above, the Rothschild empire bought the editorial policies of the major news companies in the early 1900's, with money and threats. They captured the FBI in the Hoover era with blackmail. They captured the CIA in the post-WWII era.

Their key man at the CIA was Allen Dulles. Before WWII Dulles worked as a lawyer, helping clients hide huge amounts of money. Some of these clients did business with the Nazis well into WWII. One such client was a bank that did a lot of such business, and was consequently taken over by the federal government in WWII for aiding the enemy. So Dulles brought this experience and these business connections with him to the CIA. Given the nature of his business, there is the possibility that some of his connections may have had compromising information on him.

Because of his experience with international financial dealings, during WWII he was able to work for the US government gathering intelligence in Europe. In this capacity he worked for the OSS (Office of Special Services), which had been established by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to coordinate the intelligence being collected by the several services. This coordination of intelligence was to be the main task of the CIA, newly created after the war. When the war ended and the temporary OSS was replaced by the permanent CIA, Dulles became Deputy Director. Dulles soon became Director, and ultimately put in place a vast, secret organization capable of carrying out military false flag operations anywhere in the world, almost at a moment's notice. It involved storing vast amounts of supplies around the world, and hiding their activities in other government agencies. They also used a lot of companies as fronts. Designing and implementing this system directly utilized Dulles' early experience at hiding vast amounts of money. Dulles once said that he was not a diplomat, but a lawyer. In other words, he performed services for his clients, following their instructions.

From whom did Dulles take his ultimate instructions? The US government or his private connections? Col. Fletcher Prouty served as the military's liason with the CIA for their procurement of military equipment and men, so he had a very good picture of much they were doing. He was surprised to discover that his superior, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, did not know what was going on at the CIA. Prouty realized a lot of the supplies he had provided had not been authorized by the highest level of the military chain of command, but by somebody else. Prouty began to research, and ultimately concluded that the CIA was run by a highly coordinated, "secret team". His invaluable in-depth report The Secret Team is available as a book and online here.
http://www.bilderberg.org/st/

The Dulles CIA soon went on to experiment with mind control in project MK-ULTRA. The ultimate goal was to take an ordinary person, turn him into a "robot", have him murder a target and forget the whole event. There is some fascinating evidence that they achieved this goal, and have used it to create several recent high-profile murderers, including Charles Manson, Jack Ruby, and Sirhan Sirhan. Researcher Tom O'Neill discusses his solidly documented, in-depth book Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J36xPWBLcG8

If a criminal organization has developed "human robot" killer technology, that could be used in various ways. In addition to political assassinations such as the Jack Ruby and Sirhan Sirhan cases mentioned above, it could be used to terrorize a population with seemingly random, or false flag, mass shootings. Such terrorism can be used to create fears that steer a population in a particular political direction. A sober look at the very real evidence for the latter is in Whitney Webb's article "How the CIA, Mossad and 'the Epstein Network' are Exploiting Mass Shootings to Create an Orwellian Nightmare"
https://www.mintpressnews.com/cia-israel-mossad-jeffrey-epstein-orwellian-nightmare/261692/

Another less drastic mob tactic, but still pure thuggery, is to threaten a person's family with harm. A documented case of this tactic was John Bolton's threat to Jose Bustani, director of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Bustani was advocating for inspections in Iraq to avoid a war. Bolton was George W. Bush's Ambassador to the U.N., and told Bustani, "We know where your kids live". Reported by Aaron Mate at 15:00 of this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFkG8y57RP8

More on Bustani's removal at the insistence of the U.S. is here.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/1944879.stm

Information on Bolton's tight connection with Israel is here.
https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/why-a-john-bolton-appointment-is-scarier-than-you-think-mcmaster-trump/

Bolton fully supports Israel's claim to all of Palestine, and has even committed outright treachery for Israel. "John Bolton, while serving as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, went behind his boss’s back to supply Israel with crucial information on American plans at the UN and redirect U.S. policy." Thus Bolton's thuggery is on behalf of Israel, and the Rothschild empire behind Israel.
https://www.thedailybeast.com/john-bolton-told-israel-condi-rice-sold-you-out-ex-official-says

If a public figure suddenly changes their tune, or goes silent, they may be receiving such a threat. This, along with bribery and blackmail, could explain the complete silence by America's politicians and corporate press about Israel's blatant ethnic cleansing crimes.

Banking Crimes

In addition to the crimes of war profiteering, gun smuggling, and drug smuggling, there are pure banking crimes. A major example is money laundering. Some of the world's biggest banks have been involved with money-laundering, and all the criminals have escaped with fines, essentially as a cost of doing business. This includes JP Morgan which, as noted above, became an American powerhouse bank by becoming an affiliate of the Rothschild empire. And as noted above, the Rothschild empire has a long history of connections to opium dealing and heroin dealing mobsters. More details on these establishment money-launderers is in the following three articles.

The first article contains the following quote from Senator Elizabeth Warren. "You know, if you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you’re going to go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life. But evidently, if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night, every single individual associated with this. I think that’s fundamentally wrong."
https://www.globalresearch.ca/money-laundering-and-the-drug-trade-the-role-of-the-banks/5334205

The second article has the sub-heading "DOJ Urges Federal Court to Approve Sweetheart Deal with Drug-Tainted HSBC". The "sweethear deal" phenomenon illustrates the value to the empire mobsters of controlling top decision-makers in the justice system. The "sweetheart deal" was how Jeffrey Epstein escaped justice in Florida, as discussed above.
https://www.globalresearch.ca/wall-street-banks-money-laundering-and-the-drug-trade/5324947?utm_campaign=magnet&utm_source=article_page&utm_medium=related_articles

The third article Banks Are "Where the Money Is" In The Drug War provides further details and history of the banks' role in drug trafficking.
https://narcosphere.narconews.com//notebook/bill-conroy/2012/12/banks-are-where-money-drug-war.html

The criminal banking tentacles are also reaching into America's cities, attempting to forcibly take over municipal utility companies. The municipal energy utility of Cleveland, Ohio was targeted for takeover by a private monopoly. Dennis Kucinich ran for mayor on a platform of preventing the sale and was elected. A bank who was a major shareholder in the private monopoly then tried to force Cleveland to sell by refusing to renew the city's credit on pre-existing loans. Media coverage was controlled by the bank, and there were three assassination attempts on Kucinich. Kucinich tells the story starting at about 1:04:40 in the following video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wowjS2Yp28k

The coercive takeover of a company is obviously not the free market in action. It is pure gangster thuggery. In another such instance, the crisis of lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan, with its longstanding, community-wide health tragedy, has been traced to a coercive attempt by private interests to take over Flint's water supply, knowingly sacrificing the people of Flint.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXzGQbr1cBg

In another instance, the TARP bailout of Wall Street banks in 2008 was denounced by fiscal conservative David Stockman, Ronald Reagan's Director of the Office of Management and Budget, in his book The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America. According to Stockman, the endangered banks were mainly gambling, and could have failed without endangering the entire economy, as they claimed to Congress. Instead, average Americans covered their massive gambling debts. In short, it was a "crony capitalism" scam in Stockman's phrase.

Some of the key players in the Wall Street bailout scam have also been connected to the Zionist network behind the 9/11-Iraq War scam. In his book Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World investigative reporter Christopher Bollyn extends his research into 9/11 on into the financial crisis of 2008. In chapter XI of his book he quotes Senator Richard Shelby, speaking for many, as saying, "[The bailout plan] does nothing basically for the stressed mortgage payer. It does a lot for three or four or five banks".

Thus we see the George W. Bush administration bookended by two gigantic scams, beginning with the 9/11-Iraq war scam, and ending with the 2008 Wall Street bailout scam. The three chapters linking the two are:
XI - The Fleecing of America: 9-11 and the Crisis on Wall Street
XII - The Nexus Linking 9/11 and the Financial Crisis
XIII - Ptech, 9/11, and the Financial Collapse
There is some repetition of material in these three chapters because they were originally published as individual articles. The book is online here.
https://bollyn.com/solving-9-11-the-book/

An early recorded case of bankers swindling their customers is in the Bible, in the Book of Nehemiah. In Nehemiah 5 the people of Judea protest vehemently against their leaders for devastating them economically by usurious money-lending practices. At that time it was common in the Jewish community for bankers to also be rabbis, thus giving them tremendous authority. Because of these protests a new rule was instituted, banning usurious practices by Jewish bankers toward fellow Jews. There was no such ban, however, toward non-Jewish customers.
https://www.biblestudytools.com/nas/nehemiah/

And while there are passages in the Torah advocating fairness, there are also scholarly discussions in the Talmud claiming that these rules of fairness are only intended for other Jews, and not for Gentiles (non-Jews). There is a caveat, however. If making this discriminatory attitude clear to Gentiles would antagonize them so as to create a danger for Jews, then Jews are advised to avoid that danger by pretending to treat Gentiles as equals. A consequence of these views is seen in the recent statement of Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, who said, "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail."
https://beyondallreligion.net/jewish-traditional-religion/

The belief that Jews need not treat Gentiles fairly is rooted in the idea that Jews are God's "Chosen People", and hence superior to Gentiles. In the Talmud some Jewish scholars have categorized Gentiles as animals rather than humans. This view could be used by some Jews to justify their using mobster tactics in dealing with Gentiles. This view has re-surfaced overtly in Israel, and is a source of struggle for "liberal Zionists". The history and evolution of this belief from ancient times to today is given in detail here.
http://www.whenvictimsrule.blogspot.com/search/label/02_Causes_of_Hostility_Towards_Jews

Mobster tactics have not been confined to Jews. Nor have public revolts against moneylenders.

"The persecution and slaughter of Italian usurers, in particular in France during the late thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, were phenomena as frequent and widespread as pogroms against the Jews, with the one difference that the pogroms were prompted by religious motives as well as the hatred of wealthy moneylenders of a different faith."

As noted above, that faith was often one with an attitude of entitlement. "The exploitive nature of Jewish usury invariably alienated the Christian populace. The Cortes of Portugal, for instance, complained in 1361 that Jewish usury was becoming 'an unbearable yoke upon the population.'" In another case, "In 1431, for instance, armed peasants demanded that the city of Worms surrender its Jews to them, 'in view of the fact that they had ruined [the peasants] and taken away their last shirt.'" These complaints echo those of the Jews in ancient Judea, described in the Book of Nehemiah, as noted above.
http://www.whenvictimsrule.blogspot.com/search/label/04__Usury

In days of yore a son typically learned his trade from his father. So it isn't surprising that history after the Book of Nehemiah finds Jews prominent in banking. A favorable overview of the considerable historical presence of Jews in banking is given in the following linked article. For example, "as soon as the Jews were exiled to Babylonia we surprisingly encounter at least two full-fledged Jewish banks operating there -- the banking houses of Murashu and Egibi. Many cuneiform tablets evidencing their money lending transactions and bearing Jewish names have been preserved. The banking skill of these Jews must have been preceded by generations of experience and tradition."

Computerized Mobsters

Any empire based in banking would move naturally into the information terrain of computers. Here there are new tools for spying and control. The Rothschild empire had long used secrecy, along with their various forms of coercion. In this they followed Sun Tzu's focus on information warfare, and the dictum, "All warfare is based on deception."
https://suntzusaid.com/book/1

The PROMIS Plot

PROMIS (Prosecutors Management Information System) was a case management software program, leased to the US Government in 1982. Reagan aide Earl Brian provided Israeli "superspy" Rafi Eitan a copy of PROMIS. Israeli intelligence then added a "backdoor" to the software. The original developer was driven out of business, and the bugged version sold to governments around the world. "Dozens of countries used the software on their most carefully guarded computer systems, unaware that Mossad now had access to everything PROMIS touched."

In addition to gathering counterintelligence data, "PROMIS’ backdoor and adoption by intelligence agencies all over the world essentially provided the Mossad with access to troves of blackmail that the CIA and FBI had acquired on their friends and foes for over half a century."
https://www.mintpressnews.com/mega-group-maxwells-mossad-spy-story-jeffrey-epstein-scandal/261172/

The Ptech Plot

The software that the U.S. was using to coordinate its reponse to the 9/11 attack had been developed by an Israeli start-up named Ptech, masquerading behind a Lebanese cutout. Ptech was responsible for coordinating the software of the U.S. Air Force and the Federal Aviation Administration, a coordination which, for practical purposes, failed on 9/11. Through Ptech the Israelis would be intimately familiar with the software of both the USAF and the FAA, and would add their own coordinating software into the system.

In an amazing coincidence, the 9/11 attack occurred precisely when the USAF and the FAA were conducting a practice drill for a scenario involving hijacked airliners. This created confusion and delay among the responders. With a back door into the coordinated USAF and FAA software system, the Israelis were in a position to sabotage that coordination, and to foster confusion and delay.

Ptech software is also used at the highest levels of the U.S. Navy, the Department of Defense, the FBI, the Secret Service, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department, and the IRS. More details are given in the book Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World, Chapter V How Did Spy Software Get Onto FAA Computers?
https://bollyn.com/solving-9-11-the-book/#article_11300

Here's an audio interview with Indira Singh, describing how she came to first raise the red flag about Ptech.
https://www.unz.com/audio/gunsbutter_ground-zero-911-blueprint-for-terror-p2-70/

The Carbyne Plot

"In 2015, a few years after Epstein’s release from prison following his conviction for soliciting sex from a minor in 2008, [Israeli Ehud] Barak formed a company with Epstein with the chief purpose of investing in an Israeli start-up then known as Reporty. That company, now called Carbyne, sells its signature software to 911 call centers and emergency service providers and is also available to consumers as an app that provides emergency services with access to a caller’s camera and location and also runs any caller’s identity through any linked government database. It has specifically been marketed by the company itself and the Israeli press as a solution to mass shootings in the United States and is already being used by at least two U.S. counties."

"The company’s executive team are all former members of different branches of Israeli intelligence, including the elite military intelligence unit, Unit 8200, that is often likened to Israel’s equivalent of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA)."

"the Chinese government uses a smartphone app very similar to Carbyne as part of its mass surveillance apparatus, even though the original purpose of the app was for improved emergency reporting. According to Narativ, the Chinese Carbyne-equivalent 'monitors every aspect of a user’s life, including personal conversations, power usage, and tracks a user’s movement.'"

The chief salesman for the Carbyne software was Robert Maxwell, a Mossad agent who was also the chief salesman for the bugged PROMIS software. He was also the father of Ghislaine Maxwell, the "chief of staff" for Jeffrey Epstein’s blackmail entrapment operations.

The Tech Infiltration and Outsourcing Plot

"Several U.S. tech giants including Google, Microsoft and Intel Corporation have filled top positions with former members of Israeli military intelligence and are heavily investing in their Israeli branches while laying off thousands of American employees, all while receiving millions of dollars in U.S. government subsidies funded by American taxpayers."

"Further consider that U.S. government documents leaked by Edward Snowden have flagged Israel as “leading threat” to the infrastructure of U.S. financial and banking institutions, which use much of the software produced by these top tech companies, and have also flagged Israel as a top espionage threat."

"Furthermore, many of these companies are hiring members of controversial Israeli companies — known to have spied on Americans, American companies, and U.S. federal agencies — as well as numerous members of Israeli military intelligence as top managers and executives."

Consider the example of Microsoft.

"Beginning in 2014 and continuing into 2018, Microsoft has laid off well over 20,000 employees, most of them Americans, in several different rounds of staff cuts. Over that same time period, Microsoft has been on a hiring spree in Israel, building new campuses and investing billions of dollars annually in its Israel-based research and development center and in other Israeli start-up companies, creating thousands of jobs abroad. In addition, Microsoft has been pumping millions of dollars into technology programs at Israeli universities and institutes, such as the Technion Institute. Over this same time frame, Microsoft has received nearly $197 million in subsidies from the state governments of Washington, Iowa and Virginia."

Israel’s elite military intelligence unit known as Unit 8200 has a technology focus, and is a major source of personnel going into various tech companies. "At Microsoft, managers for at least 15 of the company’s products and programs — including Microsoft’s lead managers for engineering, product strategy, threat analytics and cloud business intelligence — publicly listed their affiliation with Unit 8200 on their LinkedIn accounts. In addition, the general manager of Microsoft’s Israeli Research and Development Center is also a former member of Unit 8200."

"Similarly, at Google, 28 former Unit 8200 members at the company were identified from their LinkedIn accounts. Among them are Google’s Engineering Director, its strategic partner manager, two growth marketing leads, its lead technical manager, and six product and program managers, including Google’s manager for trust and safety search."

"MintPress identified at least 13 Unit 8200 alumni working for Facebook, including its director of engineering, lead manager for express wi-fi, and technical program manager. Notably, Facebook has spent the last several years collaborating with Israel’s government to censor Israel’s critics."

During the 2020 Democratic primaries both Google and YouTube (owned by Google) sabotaged searches for information on Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard at critical times of high interest during the campaign. Simultaneously the corporate media smeared her throughout the campaign. This concentrated negative attention was despite her having only a few percent support in the polls. But Congresswoman Gabbard's campaign focus was ending the "regime change wars". And these wars are part of the "war on terror" precipitated by the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestine in order to create the state of Israel. So Google, whose original motto was "Do no evil", was now sabotaging democracy at the behest of Israel and the Rothschild empire behind Israel. These videos and articles tell the story.

Returning to Microsoft, according to research by the New York Times Bill Gates met with Jeffrey Epstein several times after Epstein had been convicted of sex crimes. "'His lifestyle is very different and kind of intriguing although it would not work for me,' Mr. Gates emailed colleagues in 2011, after his first get-together with Mr. Epstein." Eventually Gates said he regretted having ever met Epstein.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/12/business/jeffrey-epstein-bill-gates.html

Taken together, all these facts raise the possibility that Israeli intelligence could be routinely spying on everyone using Microsoft Windows. For example, a list of folders and files could be periodically compressed and uploaded to a Mossad or Unit 8200 server. Files with recent change dates could then be scanned for keywords, and files with keywords of interest could be compressed and uploaded. This could happen during a Windows update, or anytime the computer is idling while connected to the web. People actively opposing Israel's actions could then be targeted for various sorts of harassment.

For example, Max Blumenthal interviews David Sheen on an Israeli assassination team murdering a Palestinian American in California, and getting away despite the FBI knowing who committed the murder. The discussion goes on into Israeli impunity in committing crimes, Netanyahu and Trump, and the Talmudic supremacist bigotry characterizing Israeli society today. .

The shifting of American technology capacities, including research and development capacities, from America to Israel is reminiscent of the shifting of American manufacturing capacities to China. Who benefitted from shifting those manufacturing capacities? International financiers would find a cost savings and increased profits in that shift, regardless of the devastating effects on American cities and lives. Historically, such financiers would be somebody like the Rothschild empire, with its history of manipulating international economics. Since Israel is a project financed by the Rothschild empire, it would also benefit from moving critical American technical capacities to Israel.

The Pandemic Plot

A committee of people from the intelligence community and the tech community are recommending that America needs to copy China's mass surveillance programs in order to maintain a lead in artificial intelligence technology. The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) claims that the massive amount of data China is collecting on its citizens will give it an advantage in "training" its AI systems.

"[D]ata is the new oil. And China is just awash with data. And they don’t have the same restraints that we do around collecting it and using it, because of the privacy difference between our countries. This notion that they have the largest labeled data set in the world is going to be a huge strength for them."
https://www.unz.com/wwebb/techno-tyranny-how-the-us-national-security-state-is-using-coronavirus-to-fulfill-an-orwellian-vision/

A data set is used to "train" an AI program to distinguish and identify patterns. We might train an AI program to distinguish between photos of people and photos of dogs. To do this we feed the AI program many photos, some of a person, and some of a dog. With each photo we have the program decide whether it's a person or a dog. If it's correct we go on to the next photo. If it's wrong we change some parameter values in the program. These parameter values represent the strengths of the connections between the simulated "neurons" in the program's simulated "neural net". The program may have a vast number of simulated neurons, and an even vaster number of simulated connections, each with its own parameter value. After feeding the program a very large number of photos, these parameter values will converge on a set of specific values that give correct categorization of the photos most of the time.

If we want our AI program to "learn" to distinguish rose bushes from pine trees we would feed the program many photos of rose bushes and pine trees. After each photo the program assigns the photo to one of our target categories, rose bush or pine tree. When the program is incorrect, we adjust the parameter values in the program. Our program's strategy for adjusting these parameter values is the key to how well our program learns. This strategy is the "secret sauce" of our AI program.

If we train our program to distinguish people and dogs, it will be no good at distinguishing rose bushes and pine trees. It will only be good at distinguishing what we have "trained" it to distinguish. Instead of training it to distinguish photos of objects, we could feed it a person's genetic data and have it "learn" to distinguish the person's hair color, or whether they will have a predisposition toward a genetic disease. When the program is wrong we adjust the parameter values. Over many, many tries it improves. Obviously, this can be very useful.

The key to the effectiveness of our AI program is our strategy for adjusting the parameter values when the machine gives a wrong answer. Once we have a good strategy, we can use that for learning many distinctions. We might develop a very effective strategy using photos of people and dogs, and then use that same strategy for learning to distinguish photos of rose bushes and pine trees. Or for learning to distinguish the genetic data associated with different genetic disease vulnerabilities.

It is not necessary to collect all the personal data of all American citizens to experiment with different strategies for adjusting our program parameters. It's true we need large sets of examples for the training, but that is not a reason for instituting a totalitarian level of mass surveillance. Yet that is what this committee is advocating. They are claiming that mass surveillance, ending privacy, is necessary to develop effective strategies for adjusting the parameters when our AI program makes a mistake. In essence, they are claiming that we should adopt China's totalitarian practices for our "national security".

An article in Forbes on this subject notes, "[T]he use of masses of connected sensors makes it clear that the coronavirus pandemic is–intentionally or not–being used as a testbed for new surveillance technologies that may threaten privacy and civil liberties. So aside from being a global health crisis, the coronavirus has effectively become an experiment in how to monitor and control people at scale."

Such a "Coronavirus Surveillance System" is being backed by Jared Kushner, well-known to be a staunch asset of Israel, as well as influential son-in-law of President Donald Trump. Here again we see the tentacles of Israel and the Rothschild empire increasing its control of America. The companies prepared to profit from this plan are discussed in the article Meet the Companies Poised to Build the Kushner-Backed "Coronavirus Surveillance System"
https://www.unz.com/wwebb/meet-the-companies-poised-to-build-the-kushner-backed-coronavirus-surveillance-system/

There is also a chain of circumstantial evidence linking the Coronavirus outbreak to the Anthrax attacks that immediately followed the 9/11 attack. The Anthrax attacks were directed at key members of Congress who were resisting Israel's push within the US government for war with Iraq and mass surveillance of Americans. Like the 9/11 attack, the Anthrax attacks were immediately blamed on Arabs. But the Anthrax was traced to the bioweapons lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland. The Anthrax attacks turned out to be an inside job, like the 9/11 attack.

"Yet, as the investigation into the 2001 Anthrax attacks unfolded, accusations from major U.S. newspapers soon emerged that the FBI was deliberately sabotaging the probe to protect the Anthrax attacker and that the CIA and U.S. military intelligence had refused to cooperate with the investigation."
https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/top-news/all-roads-lead-dark-winter/

The evidence fits the theory that the Anthrax attacks came from the same people who did the 9/11 attack, as part of an overall effort to scare the American people into the "war on terror", with its several "regime change" wars. The evidence points overwhelmingly to the Israelis, as discussed in this website's article War Profiteers and 9/11

The Trump administration has suggested the Coronavirus originated in a Chinese virus research lab in Wuhan. The Chinese government is suggesting it could have originated in the Fort Detrick lab in Maryland. The Fort Detrick lab has a history of security breaches from the early 1990's to the present.

"More recently, this past July [2019], the same Fort Detrick lab would be shut down by the CDC, after it was found that researchers 'did not maintain an accurate or current inventory' for toxins and 'failed to safeguard against unauthorized access to select agents.' The closure of the lab for its numerous breaches of biosafety protocols would be hidden from Congress and the facility would controversially be partially reopened last November before all of the identified biosafety issues were resolved."

"The same day that the lab was controversially allowed to partially reopen, which was the result of heavy lobbying from the Pentagon, local news outlets reported that the lab had suffered 'two breaches of containment' last year, though the nature of those breaches and the pathogens involved were redacted in the inspection findings report obtained by the Frederick News Post. Notably, USAMRIID has, since the 1980s, worked closely with virologists and virology labs in Wuhan, China, where the first epicenter of the current novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases emerged. The Chinese government has since alleged that the virus had been brought to China by members of the U.S. military, members of which attended the World Military Games in the country last October."

"Yet, upon examining not only these biosafety incidents at Fort Detrick, but the 2001 Anthrax attacks and the current Covid-19 outbreak, another odd commonality stands out — high-level war games exercise took place in June 2001 that eerily predicted not only the Anthrax attacks, but also the initial government narrative of those attacks and much, much more."

"That June 2001 exercise, known as “Dark Winter,” also predicted many aspects of government pandemic response that would later re-emerge in last October’s simulation 'Event 201,' which predicted a global pandemic caused by a novel Coronavirus just months before the Covid-19 outbreak. In addition, the U.S. government would lead its own multi-part series of pandemic simulations, called 'Crimson Contagion,' that would also predict aspects of the Covid-19 outbreak and government response."

"Upon further investigation, key leaders of both Event 201 and Crimson Contagion, not only have deep and longstanding ties to U.S. Intelligence and the U.S. Department of Defense, they were all previously involved in that same June 2001 exercise, Dark Winter. Some of these same individuals would also play a role in the FBI’s “sabotaged” investigation into the subsequent Anthrax attacks and are now handling major aspects of the U.S. government’s response to the Covid-19 crisis."

"Other major players in Dark Winter are now key drivers behind the “biodefense” mass surveillance programs currently being promoted as a technological solution to Covid-19’s spread, despite evidence that such programs actually worsen pandemic outbreaks. Others still have close connections to the insider trading that recently occurred among a select group of U.S. Senators regarding the economic impact of Covid-19 and are set to personally profit from lucrative contracts to develop not just one, but the majority, of experimental Covid-19 treatments and vaccines currently under development by U.S. companies."

Here is a discussion among sober reporters, hosted by Consortium News, about the Trump administration's attempt to pin the Coronavirus outbreak on the Chinese lab in Wuhan. They too note there is a strong counter-narrative in the undisputed facts about the recent, serious security breaches at the Fort Detrick lab, the presence of U.S. military personnel in Wuhan just before the outbreak, and their staying at a hotel 300 meters from the Wuhan livestock market. This starts at about 20:00 in the video.

The personnel linkage between the Coronavirus pandemic and the 2001 Anthrax attacks, with their strategic similarities of preceding exercises and subsequent mass surveillance, suggest the same actors are behind both. The evidence is overwhelming that the Israelis were behind the 9/11 attack and probably the Anthrax attacks that accompanied it. Further, President Trump has been doing everything the Israelis want in foreign policy, including the very provocative assassination of Iranian General Soleimani, greenlighting Israel's theft of the oil fields in the Golan Heights, greenlighting Israel's planned theft of the entire West Bank, and moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. He has been the perfect puppet that he predicted Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton would be. And the Israelis have a solid history of false flag attacks. So the possibility must be considered that this is another instance of Trump taking directions from Netanyahu.

There is abundant evidence that the Coronavirus pandemic is being used as an excuse to rush into even more mass surveillance of the American people. Instead of focusing on the simple and inexpensive method of providing everyone with N95 masks, which would stop the spread of the virus at the start, elaborate monitoring of everybody day and night is being pushed. From smartphone location data, central computers will know where everyone is at all times, and can then tell which smartphones have been near which other smart phones. Who are you meeting with, when and where? Big brother will be watching you at all times. Dissent can be nipped in the bud. Constitutional bedrock freedoms can be effectively neutered. No tyrant in history has had such power.

Thoroughness

As is usual with any successful enterprise, the Rothschild empire has been thorough in its methods of acquiring and maintaining control.

The Scofield Bible

A little-known tactic has been the creation of an annotated version of the Bible, the Scofield Reference Bible, which contains Zionist propaganda inserted in the reference notes. The intended result of this tactic has been a huge level of support for the state of Israel from American Evangelical Christians, unaware they are being duped by a Trojan-horse Bible. Here's a good secular overview article.
https://www.wrmea.org/015-october/the-scofield-bible-the-book-that-made-zionists-of-americas-evangelical-christians.html

Here's a detailed analysis of the embedded Zionist propaganda by a Christian minister who began as a fan of the Scofield Bible, but ultimately abandoned it. He tried to find Biblical citations supporting the pro-Zionist comments in the study notes, and could not. After much study he concluded that the pro-Zionist notes were actually in direct contradiction to the New Testament.
http://www.gracegospel.org.uk/scofieldism.htm

Much of the American Jewish community has also been duped by an intense campaign of pro-Zionist propaganda, based on the claim of Jews being God's chosen people, and "owning" Palestine because of a Biblical decree. A Jewish psychologist, born in Israel has written about this in an article titled It’s time for American Jews to recognize they have been duped.

From Clark County to Congress

"In late April [2020], the platform committee for Nevada’s biggest county Democratic committee, in Clark County (Las Vegas), approved a platform that included three planks in support of Palestinian rights that were put forward by Bernie Sanders delegates: calls to end the blockade of Gaza, to support the right of return, and to repeal anti-boycott legislation. Hours after the platform was published last Monday, county party leaders acted to strip the three planks, out of 500 lines in the platform."

The chair of the Nevada Democratic Party and the chair of its platform committee had received complaints "from members of the Jewish community that these [planks] were anti-Semitic". This reversal was despite the fact that "the platform committee was not unanimous in overturning its own decision, and that the top-down procedure violates party bylaws."
https://mondoweiss.net/2020/05/democratic-bigwigs-strip-pro-palestinian-planks-from-a-nevada-platform-citing-coronavirus-jewish-community/

Here Israel's influence, as an extension of the Rothschild empire, reaches into the details of Democratic Party politics in Clark County, Nevada to sabotage America's democracy. This same detailed attention is paid to States and counties all across America.

Here's an article describing a conversation between a columnist for the (Jewish) Forward and a leader of Emily’s List discussing the "gigantic" and "shocking" role of Jewish donors in the Democratic party.

Here's a report on top Democrat Nancy Pelosi and 9 Congressional Democrats having an "excellent meeting" with Netanyahu in Israel, at the same time Netanyahu was sending "dozens of snipers" to shoot unarmed protesters in Gaza.
https://mondoweiss.net/2018/04/excellent-netanyahu-snipers/

Here's top Democrat Nancy Pelosi speaking to the Israel America Council. "If this Capitol [Washington, D.C.] crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid … and I don’t even call it aid … our cooperation with Israel." America's "cooperation" aid to Israel amounts to over three billion dollars per year, and it takes precedence over America's capital city for the Israel America Council and their loyal friend Nancy Pelosi.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53x_zrkJwDs

The mechanics by which Pelosi's America gives that three billion plus dollars to Israel every year is an interesting story in itself. First, America borrows that money and pays interest on it. Second, Israel deposits that money in a bank and collects interest on it. Third Israel deposits the money in the same bank from which America borrows it. So the money essentially sits in the bank, while the U.S. starts paying interest on it and Israel starts collecting interest on it (in addition to owning it). That bank is the Federal Reserve Bank. As discussed above, this is a private bank, loosely regulated by Congress, which was created semi-secretly by agents of the Rothschild bank. A more detailed account of this process by independent investigator Jake Morphonios is here.

The Democratic and Republican parties vote essentially in lockstep on matters of Israel and their wars in the Mideast. They also vote essentially in lockstep on matters of the big banks.

Here's an excellent discussion between progressive political comedian Jimmy Dore and conservative pundit Tucker Carlson, in which they agree on the war scams, and Pelosi's alliance with Trump to maintain them. They start with a discussion of the Democratic party's establishment efforts to knock Bernie Sanders out of the primaries.

Congress's subservience to the big banks is solidly discussed here by economic and political reporter Matt Taibbi, with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti.

The Accusation of Anti-Semitism

The false accusation of "anti-Semitism" is a major tactic for suppressing criticism of Israel's actions. If someone publicly criticizes an action of Israel they are immediately met with a barrage of highly emotional, indignant accusations of anti-Semitism. The facts about Israel's action are completely ignored. This barrage of false accusations is enough to silence mainstream media and political figures. The media people fear the loss of their jobs, and the political people fear the loss of their campaign "contributions".

Here's an article by a former employee of AIPAC explaining how AIPAC deploys false accusations of anti-Semitism.
https://www.thenation.com/article/aipac-omar-israel-congress-anti-semitism/

Here's an excellent undercover documentary that catches Israeli agents on camera explaining their playbook of tactics to manipulate America. Among other tactics, they rigorously avoid publicly debating the facts of Israel's actions and policies, and instead shut down debate by indignantly proclaiming people who raise those facts to be anti-Semitic.

Counterattack

The Federal Reserve Bank

The monopoly on creating American money must be taken back from the private banks and restored to the American people. The U.S. Constitution grants the sole right to create money to the people through their government. That job was outsourced to private banks, to the banks' great benefit and the great detriment of the American people.

"But we are told that the Constitution authorizes Congress to coin but not to print money. The one is understood to apply to metal, and the other to paper. But at this time, in all Europe, coin and print mean the same thing. The two words were used by all financial writers as interchangeable. They both mean stamp, and nothing else." Thus the term "coin money" commonly meant "create money", just as we say Shakespeare had a capacity to "coin a phrase". From Our Money Wars, page 26.

The private control of the Fed is a bit opaque, involving private banks owning shares in the Fed's regional branch banks. Who Owns the Federal Reserve Bank and Why is It Shrouded in Myths and Mysteries?
https://www.counterpunch.org/2015/12/18/who-owns-the-federal-reserve-bank-and-why-is-it-shrouded-in-myths-and-mysteries/

However, behind the scenes, "The banking industry fully determines the entire process of money creation, whereas the government, far from being monetarily sovereign, is indebted to and dependent on the banks." Page 48.
http://www.paecon.net/PAEReview/issue66/Huber66.pdf

On the way to nationalizing the creation of money, individual States can create their own State banks to begin escaping the clutches of Wall Street. North Dakota has a State bank, which helped it weather the Great Recession of 2008. Building on this, Ellen Brown has proposed a "system of banks operated as public utilities" in The Public Bank Solution.
https://ellenbrown.com/books/the-public-bank-solution/

After the Great Recession of 2008, Congressman Dennis Kucinich presented a bill containing a plan with specific steps to take back the creation of money from the private banks, and put it in the hands of the people, as granted by the U.S. Constitution. A summary of that plan is here.

The Media Monopoly

The functional monopoly of the corporate media must be ended. This hidden monopoly is why Americans get virtually no reporting about Israel, especially about its ethnic cleansing, its murder and even slaughter of innocent Palestinians, its massive land thefts, its control over American politicians and foreign affairs, and its control over America's mainstream media. It is also why Americans get very little reporting on banking events, and are given little understanding of how their banking system works.

Israel

Financial support for Israel must be ended.

AIPAC and similar organizations must be made to register as agents of a foreign government.

Campaign contributions from Israeli/Zionist agents must be barred.

The U.N. must be allowed to debate Israel's actions and take appropriate responses without a U.S. veto protecting Israel.

Are these steps possible? Yes. Former Senator James Abourezk wrote,

"I can tell you from personal experience that, at least in the Congress, the support Israel has in that body is based completely on political fear—fear of defeat by anyone who does not do what Israel wants done. I can also tell you that very few members of Congress—at least when I served there—have any affection for Israel or for its Lobby. What they have is contempt, but it is silenced by fear of being found out exactly how they feel. I've heard too many cloakroom conversations in which members of the Senate will voice their bitter feelings about how they're pushed around by the Lobby to think otherwise. In private one hears the dislike of Israel and the tactics of the Lobby, but not one of them is willing to risk the Lobby's animosity by making their feelings public."
https://ifamericaknew.org/us_ints/pg-abourezk.html

The opening scene of John Huston's movie We Were Strangers depicts a national Senate voting, under a hidden coercion, to suspend their citizens' liberties. It's a chilling scene, based on a true story.
