Who Owns the United States?

Ask folks named Haim Saban and Miriam Adelson

By Philip Giraldi

September 28, 2023 – Information Clearing House The recent sparring between Elon Musk and the despicable Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has cast considerable light on the successful attempts by Jewish groups to dominate America’s foreign as well as some domestic policies, in part by taking away the First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech so their behavior cannot be challenged. As readers of Unz will be aware, Musk has threatened to sue the ADL for as much as $22 billion for defaming him and doing material damage to his business interests while also falsely smearing Musk himself and the platform for allegedly providing an antisemitic haven for “hate speech.” In Musk’s view, the ADL has put pressure on potential advertisers not to do business with him and to engage in a total boycott of his social networking sites.

Greenblatt’s argument is that material that he considers to be anti-semitic should not be allowed on any public forum, to include Musk’s site X, formerly known as Twitter. If Greenblatt were concerned with public incitements to kill Jews or damage their property there might be a case to be made, but the fact is that such behavior is already criminalized. Greenblatt is much more expansive than that, condemning any criticism of Jewish group or even individual behavior or the actions of Israel, which have included various war crimes and crimes against humanity to include targeting and killing Palestinian children and harvesting the organs of Palestinian prisoners. Israel is also a nation that is increasingly ethnically exclusive and has a state religion that is intolerant and repressive of other creeds, to include minority Christians and Muslims.

Beyond Musk, Greenblatt and the ADL have also focused on Tucker Carlson given his high profile and popularity among conservatives. Greenblatt repeatedly demanded that Fox News fire Tucker for discussing the “great replacement” theory as well as other white-nationalist talking points. Greenblatt has denounced Carlston’s alleged willingness “To use his platform as a megaphone to spread the toxic, antisemitic, and xenophobic ‘great replacement theory’ is a repugnant and dangerous abuse of his platform.” He called on advertisers to stop supporting the Carlson program and Fox with their dollars and was delighted when Carlson was finally fired in April. Many believe that the firing was in large part due to pressure from ADL and other Jewish groups.

In other words, in the America envisioned by Greenblatt and his friends who are pressuring advertisers not to support sites like X and passing laws penalizing or even criminalizing anyone who seeks to boycott Israel over its behavior, it will be more-or-less possible to speak freely on any subject as long as it does not involve Jews. That suggests an assumption by ADL that Jews have special status not enjoyed by anyone else. As a result Jews have been able to exploit their alleged singular and perpetual victimhood to assume de facto control over media sources of information as well as both major political parties using that old tried and true mechanism, money, and lots of it. It is a subject that in itself will not be open to discussion and which Greenblatt dismisses as an anti-semitic trope amounting to “hate speech.”

Interestingly enough, the wrath of Greenblatt is apparently not shared by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is regarded as no shrinking violet when it comes to promoting his country’s interests, as he sees them, and the dominance of Jewry worldwide. Netanyahu was in the United States last week for the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly but he made time to fly to California to visit Musk’s Tesla car assembly plant. The two men sat down to have a public chat in front of news cameras and, while it was clear that they were being polite and non-combative, it was also true that Netanyahu was careful not to accuse Musk of being an anti-semite or anything like that.

Netanyahu, who may have a better understanding than does Greenblatt of which way the wind is blowing regarding his country and Jewish power in general, might be playing a clever game in which he avoids a hard edged and dangerous Greenblatt approach while proceeding quietly with the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians and aggrandizing himself in power through his attack on the country’s courts. Netanyahu clearly understands that Israel has crossed the apartheid threshold vis-à-vis Palestine and its neighbors and that most of the world despises his country, to include many Americans who are beginning to see the light that they have been used and abused for the past 75 years. He has chosen to ignore the critics as the wisest path, in which he may be correct.

How have Jews in America and Canada as well as in Europe and Australasia become so politically powerful? Now that Musk has opened the door to discussing the Jewish issue with some candor, a number of articles and discussions have begun to appear in the media and some universities have even developed enough of a spine to start teaching true narratives on the Middle East supported by books that groups like ADL are seeking to ban. The most powerful piece to appear recently was on Mondoweiss, entitled “Biden’s Israel Policy is Scripted by Saban.”

Mondoweiss’s title refers to Israeli-American Hollywood-based media producer Haim Saban, who sums up his political philosophy with a pithy “I’m a one issue guy and my issue is Israel!” Saban has been the largest individual donor to the Democratic Party since the Clintons and his power has resulted in unswerving fealty to US interests as perceived through the optic of its relationship with the Jewish state. He is similar to megadonor Sheldon Adelson, now deceased, who performed the same service with the Republican Party. Sheldon’s wife Miriam, an Israeli, has maintained the legacy of keeping the GOP in line through control of political donations. The Adelsons were reportedly responsible for Donald Trump’s move of the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and other concessions re the Palestinians, Iranians and Syrians. The withdrawal of the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was due to pressure from the Adelsons, a move that was contrary to the actual US interest to monitor Iranian nuclear developments. Sheldon’s only failure was failing to convince Trump to bomb Iran.

Saban, who recently spent three hours in the Oval Office advising Joe Biden, is most clearly seen through his own comments on the relationship between the US and Israel. Hint: Israel’s interests always come first! For example, he shrugged off criticism of his giving money to AIPAC, “which supports Republican election deniers, because his one issue is Israel” saying in an interview: “The only goal of this organization is to prevent people who are against US-Israel relations from advancing and to support those who support relations between Jerusalem and Washington… Many Democrats called me and said ‘are you stupid? you’re a Democrat who supports [2020 election deniers]?’ I always say the same thing: It’s a specific, defined issue, and that is the US-Israel relationship. In that sense, I’m not interested in anything else.”

Re the Democratic Party leadership and Joe Biden, Saban observed that the party is “still solidly pro-Israel, and there are only about a dozen members of Congress who are anti-Israel.” Saban funded Hillary Clinton in 2008 but responded angrily when Obama “refused to echo Hillary Clinton’s call to ‘obliterate’ Iran if Iran attacked Israel.” Saban did not trust Obama on the issue of Israel and was initially rebuffed when he tried to arrange a meeting in 2010. He told a journalist that “I had a list of questions… And Chicago’—Obama campaign headquarters—‘could not organize that meeting. … I was ready and willing to be helpful, but ‘helpful’ is not to write a check for two thousand three hundred dollars. It’s to raise millions, which I am fully capable of doing.” Obama eventually came to respect Saban’s millions. “By 2013, President Obama was the speaker at a fundraiser at the Sabans’ house in L.A. attended by 120 people who paid between $16,200 and $32,400 each to attend.”

The result of the largesse is that Biden’s policy on the Middle East is now being scripted by Haim Saban, whose millions he requires for the upcoming 2024 campaign. It is as simple as that, appreciating that donation of cash in hand is better than platitudes about suffering Palestinians. That is what constitutes “truth” for both major political parties, who are de facto owned by the Adelsons and the Sabans who will always place Israel first. That Saban and Adelson (who is buried in Jerusalem) were and are both Israeli citizens and have been allowed to wield such power on behalf of a foreign country with which the US shares almost nothing in the way of actual values is shameful and it is also technically illegal or possibly even treasonous as they are acting as Foreign Agents. And it is more than that morally speaking – it is a disgrace. Joe Biden in particular should be ashamed of his folding when confronted by Jewish money as he is in charge, but it is apparently not an emotion that he is familiar with.

    Before we start let me make one thig perfectly clear, ‘I’m not a crook or a lier’. So told us Tricky Dickie Nixon when he boarded his last flight in the presidential helicopter., which in fact he was.
    The same can be said of Zionist leaders and agents inserted in countries all over the world.
    The fresh news about the Ukrainian SS Nazi war criminal, presented and honored with standing ovations by the whole Canadian establishment illustrate the penetration of Nazi Ukrainian soldiers in Canada, the US and all over the world after WWII. Only a complete ignorant fool can accept that his true identity was ignored by the participants, since it was presented by the Nazi convert of Jewish blood Volodimyr Zelenski, president of a Nazi regime installed by our friends and partners the United States of America by force of arms in 2014, regime supported by the Canadian government. Not only Trudeau and the Liberal Party, but the whole Canadian political establishment, knew vey well who he was. Anything else is another blatant lie.
    The level of mendacity demonstrated by Poland, a country who lost most of the Jewish victims of Nazi Germany during the holocaust, and still until this very day has supported Kyiv with arms, equipment and Polish mercenaries under control of the Ukrainian regime, was fully conscious of their ideology from day one. Another country guilty of hypocrisy is Israel country that more than any other should have demanded the delivery of the SS criminal to be judged and hang for his crimes, instead they are content with vain declarations form Jewish organizations demanding apologies. We must remember that during the Poroshenko government another corrupt Ukrainian president, non other that Bibi Netanyahu made an official visit to Ukraine a openly Nazi ruled country, where most oligarchs are of Jewish extraction. Jews supporting a regime that exterminated 6 million of their fellow brothers? Impossible but true.
    No wonder great men and women of Jewish origin like Albert Einstein and Hanna Arendt
    together with dozens of Jewish personalities published an article in the New York Times denouncing the Zionist leaders of being Fascists, even before the foundation of Israel. This clearly shows that many Jewish also reject Zionism as an evil ideology. Do they teach these true events in school in America and anywhere else in the world? Mum is the word.

      You mentioned Poroshenko. Keep in mind that he is also Jewish. Even though post WWII Ukraine now has less than 200,000 Jews, they have totally controlled Ukraine since the 2014 US sponsored coup, with a succession of Presidents, all of them Jewish: Yatsenyuk, Groysman, Poroshenko, and Zelensky.

      Nobody owns the United States. We have a democracy not a dictatorship. We vote for our representatives and they pass laws and raise taxes to pay for what we spend. We have freedom of speech and of the press.

    Plaudits to Elon Musk and Philip Giraldi for exposing themselves to the inevitable fusillade of ADL attacks both legal and monetary that are bound to be their primary rewards for trying to protect our rights guaranteed under the American constitution.

    I saw the ADL forced Fresno State University to fire a history professor of Palestinian origin. That is real power.

    If this guy is 98 years old means that in 1943 he was just 20, how could he possibly be responsible for all those murders? He may have been a puny SS member at the time. Anyway he did not need the standing ovation.

      We had a family friend now deceased, that as a young man fought with the Canadian Armed Forces all the way from Italy to Berlin and survived. He told us that Hitler who was a monster that at the end used as a last resort members of the Hitler Jugend, raised by the regime and brainwashed by it to fight allied forces. My friend told us that they would not surrender and had to be killed like dogs who kept resisting even mortally wounded. Do not tell me friend about what a young person, of even 12 to 14 years old can do under certain conditions. This old man is a murderous bastard that needs to be executed for his personal participation. Russia alone lost 25+ millions to these monsters.

    After I read “When Corporations Rule the World” by William F. Engdahl, I began to wonder about the answer to the question that is the title of this article.

  6. […] Who Owns the United States? […]

    Unfortunately, the Supreme Court made this corporatocracy possible. In a realistic world, corporations are NOT people, ergo not voting citizens with all constitutional rights thereof, and money is NOT free speech, ergo not a fount of unlimited propaganda for the wealthy class.

    Like I stated many times before “We have a government of the politicians, by the lobbyists, and for the special interest groups.” The average person on the street has no real influence whatsoever in Washington D.C. Its time for the American people to wake up to reality.

    To say that ”That suggests an assumption by ADL that Jews have special status not enjoyed by anyone else. As a result Jews have been able to exploit their alleged singular and perpetual victimhood to assume de facto control over media sources of information as well as both major political parties using that old tried and true mechanism, money, and lots of it.” is a denial of the Holocauste, a denial of Christianity’s Antisemitism over the centuries, and ignores the Christian Zionist control over the media and governments to support any Israel government even if it includes fascists.

    In the movie The Good Shepherd there is following conversation: ““- Joseph Palmi: Let me ask you something… we Italians, we got our families, and we got the church; the Irish, they have the homeland, Jews their tradition; even the niggers, they got their music. What about your people, Mr. Wilson, what do you have?
    – Edward Wilson: The United States of America. The rest of you are just visiting.”
    In Conspiracy Practitioners (https://philosophyofgoodnews.com/conspiracy-practitioners-the-last-200-years/ )you will read about some of those characters,one being “Colonel” Mr. Edward House who influenced Presidents deep and wide and who’s “babies” were crucial men in the administration like Dulles brothers etc.. So, the ones mentioned in the post are the servants. Very influential, but servants. The real masters are invisible.

    One further comment. If you do your research like I have, you will find many Jewish people who have a great deal of influence. It is important for them to especially control certain cabinet positions. For President Biden, the U.S. Treasury Department, the State Department. and the Justice Department are headed by a Jewish person.

    There are many Federal Agencies that are controlled by them as well. The Department of Homeland Security is one example. You know the one that is allowing five and half million illegal aliens to set up camp in America under Biden orders. If you research other administrations before Biden, the pattern existed then as well.

    You can go all the way back to when the Zionists got President Wilson to enter World War I. That is a long true story in itself. When you research all the facts, America is a Jewish control country. They determine America’s aggressive policies in foreign affairs.

      The mind of a toilet imagines that Zionists were a force in the WWI . As for Jewish functionaries in the US State, they should all resign from a regime that protected the NAzi war criminals and integrated them into the CIA and NASA
