A couple of days ago, Daily Pickings repeated the plea for us to discuss Jewish power for the benefit of everyone and to protect all Jews from the inevitable backlash as truth emerges.
The second of Bertrand Russell's commandments in his Liberal Decalogue states "Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light."
If anyone is in any doubt about the over-representation of Jews in power, here are some statistics for America covering media, banking, politics, academia and society. When one remembers that, for most Jews, their first loyalty is to fellow Jews and Israel, the question arises: whose benefit do these institutions serve?
Exploring these issues is not anti-Semitic but essential for the future of Jews and the rest of us.
The answer to the institutions of power serving minority interests is dissolution of hierarchy; that requires no pogroms, expulsions or other measures to reverse the concentration of wealth and power in progressively fewer hands. It means self-determination and cooperation for the benefit of everyone, including Jews - a level playing field for humanity.

We've been trained to react immediately to news or information, which makes us controllable - through psychological manipulation. Perhaps, if we take time to reflect and consider the many possible consequences of actions and events, we may get a better handle on how the world works and discover how to change it.
Enjoy your Monday and resist the inclination to react to everything immediately. Be eccentric: think.

Daily Pickings has been arguing for wide discussion on Jewish power over politics, media and academia which dwarfs Jews' demographic representation in the general population. Why is this important? Because, throughout history, when Jewish influence has undermined state institutions and corroded societies' morality and stability, the resulting blowback has ended in a bloodbath engulfing not only Jews but many others. It is for their own good that we need to discuss Jewish power.
Furthermore, this phenomenon is not necessarily a conscious act by most Jews but the result of centuries of indoctrination and manipulation of Jews through the creation of a cognitive elite and Talmudic teaching, inculcating a sense of exceptionalism and superiority. Jews are manipulated by the Structural Elite (many of whom are Jews) as much as the rest of us.
In the UK, in recent days, a story of Jewish manipulation of UK politics has erupted into public consciousness and it is stories like this which, cumulatively, will create a backlash against Jews that has yet to be visible because of people's fear of being labelled "anti-Semite".
Duncan's stand on settlements makes him Israeli target by Peter Oborne
UK foreign office minister, whom Israeli embassy official discussed 'taking down', has been Conservatives' most vocal critic of illegal settlements
This story is but the "tip of the iceberg" of Jewish influence and emerged from an Al Jazeera undercover investigation into Israeli influence in UK politics. It is essential viewing to get a sense of the extent of the problem.
The UK is not alone in suffering this Israeli interference in its politics, Washington and Europe are similarly blighted.
Unless we confront this issue of unseen Jewish power it will continue to fuel a cauldron of hate which will eventually boil over, engulfing us in bloody conflict. Discussion of Jewish power is for the protection of all Jews many of whom are unwitting, dispensable storm-troopers in the march to a one world government to enslave humanity.

When we are being pointed to something salacious and distracting, it is essential to think deeper. The origins of the story lie in the US presidential election and what was the story the establishment was trying to bury? Pizzagate and paedophilia in power - a global phenomenon and primary means of control over the elevated cattle.
This perverse rot permeates the levers of power: politics, media and the judiciary. In the UK, brave souls have been battling this evil for decades and many pay a heavy price but their stories are seldom told.
Melanie Shaw Given Two Years Following Secret Court Hearing by Brian Gerrish
On Wednesday 11 January 2016, Melanie Shaw, the whistleblower on the horrific abuse of children which occurred at the then county council-run Beechwood Children's Home in Nottinghamshire in the late 1980s, was given a two-year custodial sentence in a secret court hearing.
The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.
Transparency and visibility is the essential antidote to this evil in our midst; so don't be Pavlov's dogs, think and talk about it. Don't let them bury either paedophilia in power or those trying to expose it. Our future depends on us standing up on their behalf.
