Meet the “New Jewish Elite” Under President Trump
The organized Jewish community, through its various political lobbying groups, Jewish advocacy organizations and charities, influential institutions, and well-connected leaders, essentially dominates American politics and government (and media, Hollywood, popular culture, education, etc.), especially at the highest levels.
This is an obvious fact that is easily demonstrated simply by observing American politics. American politicians and government officials – again, at the highest levels of power – regularly advance Jewish and Israeli interests openly and proudly, often at the expense of their own nation and people. The Jews always seem to get what they want, and the policies and positions they espouse and advocate for (open borders, massive Third World immigration and “refugee resettlement”, gay marriage and homosexual “rights”, “transgenderism”, endless wars in the Middle East, etc.) are enthusiastically embraced and endorsed by virtually all American politicians and government officials.
Jewish domination over the U.S. federal government (the White House, Congress, Supreme Court, etc.) is nothing new. The Jews have controlled our government for a long time, cementing their power over our society under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and arguably even before.
There is, however, a “new Jewish elite” arising under President Trump, according to a recent report in The Jewish Daily Forward.
Among many moves aimed at reversing his predecessor’s policies, President Trump recently decided not to make public the White House visitors logs. Had they been open, the lists would reveal the profound change 100 days of a Trump administration had brought about to the Jewish community’s power structure.
“The atmosphere has changed, at least for us. There’s a sense of familiarity and greater receptivity and that makes a better atmosphere,” said Abba Cohen, vice president for federal affairs at Agudath Israel of America, a group representing the ultra-Orthodox stream.
Liberal-leaning Jewish activists, once the backbone of communal advocacy, had been pushed aside in favor of a new elite made up of activists who are more conservative in their politics and more Orthodox in their religious practice. The new leaders representing American Jewish interests in the White House are keen to shape policy on education and religious expression and to ensure a pro-Israel stance more in line with the Netanyahu government. […]
In the Trump White House, which critics have deemed insensitive to Jewish issues, Orthodox activists have found allies. “The more I learn about the administration, I learn that there are more Jews there who are active in Jewish life,” he said, pointing to Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, international negotiations envoy Jason Greenblatt, and David Friedman, the new ambassador to Israel, all of whom are Orthodox. “They have an intimate knowledge of the Jewish community and of Israel and that makes the difference.” […]
No one knows this better than Ben Chouake, a New Jersey physician who heads NORPAC, America’s largest pro-Israel PAC. Greenblatt and Friedman were on his board, and he even used to meet the Kushners at weddings and family events. “I have a lot more comfort with this administration,” Chouake said. In part, he says, it’s because he shares background and beliefs with some of Trump’s senior staffers. “This administration is much, much more congenial to U.S.-Israel relations,” he added.
NORPAC will be heading to Washington next month for its annual lobbying mission, focused on improving U.S.-Israel relations, but at least in the Trump White House, Chouake feels he won’t have a problem conveying his message. “I need to talk to David Friedman? I need to talk to Greenblatt? What, they don’t know what to do?” he asked, adding: “You have people in positions there that are emotionally inclined in favor of Israel, and that’s something that was emotionally missing in the previous administration.” […]
The Forward, an explicitly Jewish news outlet, once again reminds us of the truly staggering reality of Jewish power and influence over the United States federal government. Although this time, under President Trump, it’s a different faction of Jews influencing and manipulating the government.
Rather than the more left-wing faction of Jews, which dominated the Obama administration, we now have right-wing, Orthodox Jews running the show under President Trump. With the right-wing, ultra-Zionist faction of Jews influencing Trump, expect more saber rattling and military intervention in the Middle East – all designed to advance Israeli hegemony in the region – as well as the standard multicultural, anti-White policies (massive immigration, White displacement and demonization, homosexual and transgender “rights”, abortion on demand, etc.) championed by both left-wing and right-wing factions of the organized Jewish community.
I’ve never been one to downplay, dismiss, or ignore Trump’s deep ties and connections to the Jewish community – I regularly lamented this unfortunate reality and worried his ties to Jews would undermine and sabotage his populist, America First message and campaign pledges once elected. For a time I thought, based on Trump’s actions and statements, that he was the one in charge – not the Jews. Now, it’s becoming more and more obvious that is not the case as Trump betrays his campaign pledges and backs down from his most important public policies positions while debasing himself in front of the organized Jewish community.
It’s clear the Jews are in charge, not Trump. Sad!
