"The administrators chosen by us from the masses for their servility will not be persons trained for government, and consequently they will easily become pawns in our game, played by our learned and talented counsellors, specialists educated from early childhood to administer world affairs. As we know, our specialists have been acquiring the necessary knowledge for governing * * *."
- The Second Protocol
8. Jewish Influence In American Politics
Within the memory of even young men, Tammany Hall has been the synonym of all political trickery in the vocabulary of popular criticism. Tammany Hall was held up as the worst example of boss rule, political corruption, brute force, that it was possible to find in the world. Its very name became a stigma in the decades before the first world war. But even the most unobservant newspaper reader must have observed the gradual fading out of Tammany Hall from public comment, the cessation of the bitter criticism, the entire absence of headlines bristling witty ugly charges, and the calling of the hosts of good citizenship to do battle against the grim bossism that maintained its headquarters in New York.
Why the change in recent years? Is it due to the dying out of Tammany Hall as a political force? No, Tammany Hall is still there, as any New York politician will tell you. The Tammany tiger has not changed its stripes.
There was a time when fearless publications told the truth about Tammany, but they have either gone out of existence or have fallen under control of the Jews. There was a time when public bodies like the Citizens Union organized to oppose Tammany and to keep a volunteer vigil on its activities; these groups have succumbed to Jewish contributions and officer-ship and no longer stand guard.
The outcry against Tammany seemed to be hushed the moment that Tammany patronage fell into the hands of the New York Jews, where it now remains, the Kehillah being the real political center, and Tammany but a distributing station a sort of "Gentile front" for the more powerful Kehillah. The Judaization of Tammany is now complete, for the Irish element has been overcome by Jewish money.
Tammany was one of the strongest political organizations ever seen in the United States. Potent not only in municipal and state politics, but often exercising a decisive influence on national affairs. It was, without exaggeration, unequalled in any country in the world.
If there is one quality that attracts Jews, it is power. Wherever the seat of power may be, thither they swarm obsequiously. As Tammany was power and the gate of power, it was natural that the Jews of the biggest Jewish city in the world should court it. Doubtless, they were also affected by incongruity of the fact that in the biggest Jewish city, the most solid political power was non-Jewish. When the German Jewish banker, Schoenberg, went to America under the name of August Belmont to represent the interests of the Rothschilds, his keen eye at once took in the situation. He became a member and supporter of Tammany. It was good business for this Jewish banker, because the funds of the Rothschilds were heavily invested in New York transport. The properties of city tractions are, as in all American cities, at the mercy of the local Tammany power, by whatever name it may be known. Belmont eventually attained the coveted eminence of Grand Sachem of the Tammany Society. Belmont-Schoenberg opened the way for the rest of the Jews; the Freedmans, Untermeyers, Strauss; financiers, lawyers, politicians, business men and union sharks. There soon followed the wholesale appointment of Jews to the judiciary of New York until New York became a political and legal Jewish preserve; and onwards to the Supreme Court where Jewish influence never looked back since the now distant day of the Jewish capture of Tammany Hall.
It was necessary for a Jewry that planned to control the judiciary, as well as to provide special protection for certain Jewish enterprises that are near enough to the borderline of the law to merit question, it was necessary to obtain control of the supreme political engine through which favors are disbursed in local politics. The peculiar system of local, state and national government in the United States made it easy for the control of such organizations to be gained by money.
The Jews natural political home seems to be in the Republican Party, for thither he returns after venture elsewhere; but his predilection for the Republican Party does not move the Jew to make the mistake of being exclusively the partisan of one group. It is better, he knows, to control all groups. Strong as Jewry became in Tammany, it was even stronger in the ranks of the Republican Party, while New York socialism was, and is, completely headed and manned by Jews. This renders it extremely easy for the Jews to swing support in whichever direction they choose, and for Kehillah to fulfill any threat it may make. It also insures that any Jewish candidate on any ticket will be elected.
Because of the powerful Irish control of Tammany at the beginning, the Jews worked cautiously. The Kehillah adopted the ancient policy, not of putting forward their own people, but non-Jews who could be useful to Judah. The difference between pro-Jewish politicians who are not themselves Jews, and politicians of the Jewish race, is that the former can sometimes go further than the Jew in office can, without detection. Thus, in the early days of Tammany, indeed until just before World War I there was always a "Gentile front" in Tammany offices basking in the glory of Tammany publicity, but always in the background there was his "Jewish control." This is the formula for citizens who wish to know the meaning of things otherwise unexplained "look for the Jewish control." To this end, therefore, the Jews have been strong in all parties, so that whichever way the election went, the Jews would win. In New York it is always the Jewish party that wins. Whoever wins New York rules the Government.
As always election campaigns are staged as an entertainment, a diversion for the people; they are permitted to think and act as if they are really making them own government, but it is always the Jews that win. And if after having elected their man or group, obedience is not rendered to the Jewish control, then you speedily hear of "scandals" and "investigations" and "impeachments" for the removal of the disobedient.
Usually a man with a "past" proves the most obedient instrument, but even a good man can often be tangled up in campaign practices that compromise him. It has been commonly known that Jewish manipulation of American election campaigns have been so skillfully handled, that no matter which candidate was elected, there was ready made a sufficient amount of evidence to discredit him in case his Jewish masters needed to discredit him. To arrange this is part of the thoroughness of Jewish control. And, of course, the American people have been sufficiently trained to roar against the public official immediately the first Jewish hound emits its warning bay.
Amazing as is the technique of the Jewish political process, the readiness with which the American people can be counted on to do their part in forwarding the game is still more amazing.
Aliens And Tammany Leadership
The strength of Tammany had exactly the same source as the strength of the Kehillah, namely, in the foreign population; the difference being that the Kehillah had a more compact foreign mass to draw upon. But both the Kehillah leaders and the Tammany leaders have always been alertly aware of the fact that their power depended upon an uninterrupted flow of immigration. It is always the foreigner that makes the best material for the Kehillahs purpose, until American became so thoroughly un-Americanized as to make intensive immigration no longer essential. It was only then that immigration began to slow down. The third great influx of immigration into the United States occurred in 1884 and was really the cause of the beginning of the degeneration of New York, and then of American political life. The-great wave was composed of Russian, Austrian and Hungarian Jews, whose arrival was followed by a memorable period of crime, the marks of which remain to this day.
At that time the police department and the police courts before which all criminal cases in the city were first brought, were in the hands of Tammany Hall under the notorious Boss Croker. The result of the Jewish control was a partnership between local government and crime which has not been duplicated outside of Semitic countries. Immigrant Jews of the shadier type organized an association called The Max Hochstim Association, which was known as the "Essex Market Court Gang." One of its chief leaders was Martin Engel, Tammany leader of the Eighth District. The "king" of this Jewish district was a man named Solomon who had changed his name to the less revealing one of "Smith," and who became known as "Silver Dollar Smith," because of the fact that he ruled his little empire from the Silver Dollar Saloon. This saloon was just opposite the Essex Market Court, which was thronged daily by hordes of Yiddish criminals, the bondsmen, the false witnesses and lawyers. Lee Max Hochstim Association became the first organized White Slavery Group in America, and the revelations made by the United States Government Investigation Committee are shuddering exposures of that lowest form of depravity a coolly conducted, commercialized, consolidated traffic in women. The traffic was made to yield dividends to politicians, to Tammany Jews in particular; it was during the official investigation that the Max Hochstim Association became known as the "Essex Market Court Gang." Out of the old police court in the "red light" Essex Market district, New York, comes a word which has fixed itself in common English speech. A lawyer named Scheuster, whose practices were quite characteristics, made himself very obnoxious to Justice Osborne. Whenever another Yiddish lawyer attempted a shady trick the judge would openly denounce it as "Scheuster practice," and so it came that the first men in the profession to bear the name of "shyster," were the Yiddish lawyers of Essex Market Court, New York.
Jews And The White Slave Scandal
It is a surprising fact that, although these matters are written in official documents, and although the same matters have been written into the record of every similar investigation which has been made, Jewish leaders persist in denying that the leaders in this particular form of depravity are Jews. When the United States Government made a nation-wide investigation, it found and recorded the same facts. The New York Kehillah came into existence as a defense organization at a time when the exposure of the Jewish White Slave Traffic threatened to overwhelm the New York ghetto.
The exposure which resulted when the white people of New York finally succeeded in getting the forces of the law to function impartially for a little while, caused many of the implicated Jews to change their names. These names are now representative of some of the best Jewish families, whose concealed bar sinister is the fact that the foundation of the family fortune was laid in the red light districts. The Max Hochstim Association was not the only organization of its kind to be unearthed. Another was the New York Independent Benevolent Association, which was organized in 1896 by a party of Jewish white slave dealers. Gangs like these formed the backbone of Tammany power in the slum districts; their principal field of operations was the cheap dance halls, their cover the "benevolent associations" in the East Side, all run by Jewish leaders, chiefly Russian and Galician Jews, as the official report exposes. They were slavers as their forbears were in the days of Romes decline; they were bootleggers before the days of prohibition; and they constituted a strong support of the international narcotic ring which to this day has defied the law by corrupting the officers of the law.
In the decade before the first world war, in seizing control and exploiting New York, the Jews made one of their cyclically recurring mistakes; they carried things too far with too high a hand. They survived the exposure, however, and retained their power. It is this Jewish tendency to boast and overdo that has always given the game away. Superficial observers and writers have noted the recurrent protests against Jewish presumption and bumptiousness and have explained them as being recurrent spasms of a vile poison which is supposed to reside in the blood of the Gentile the vile poison of anti-Semitism. That is, of course, the conventional Jewish propaganda explanation, and many Gentile clergy, writers and politicians innocently retail it; many other Gentile worshippers of Jewish money cynically connive at the treachery. It always breaks out after wars, say some of these writers. Why after wars? Because in wars the world sees more clearly than at other times the real purpose and personality of the Jew. Thus, it is not anti-Semitism that breaks out it is Judaism, gross and exaggerated Semitism; and the serum that forms in the social body to encist and control the germ of Judaism comes in the form of public exposure and protest. That serum is working now the serum of publicity; and the Jewish program cannot endure it.
Study the history of all things whatsoever into which the Jews inject themselves, from summer resorts to empires, and you see the same cycle appearing.
The Jewish conquest of Tammany, however, is only one phase of the conquest of New York. The Jewish objective is more than political. Merely to insure that the lucrative and powerful officers of the city shall be their own people, is not the end in view. New York has been turned into the Red Center of America. There most of the alien treason carried on against the government of the United States has its source. Tammany is a convenient cover for ostensible political activity as the Kehillah is for the more radical racial and anti-American racial activity.
