Is it really true that America’s richest 1% are ‘overwhelmingly Jewish’?

Eric Zuesse, originally published at The Saker (where the author’s responses to reader-comments challenging this report, can also be seen)

On September 8th, an article I wrote for Strategic Culture Foundation, “What America’s Aristocracy Want,” was republished at the Donbass (far-eastern formerly Ukrainian) website, “South Front”. The article blamed a lot on America’s billionaires and centi-millionaires, “the American aristocracy” (as I referred to it), who own controlling blocs of stock in America’s largest corporations, and whose political donations control the U.S. federal Government. It defined the powerful Americans whose agenda is harmful for the world, as consisting of the very few richest Americans (and their agents who run their international corporations, ‘nonprofits’, ‘news’media, and lobbying). But the most-heavily up-voted reader-comments there, were from people who clearly received a very different message from that article. They blamed ‘Jews’ — and all of them (not merely the super-rich ones). America’s billionaires who aren’t ‘Jews’ were set aside from blame, in their comments. The first (the most popular) reader-comment was “No, the reason they think they’re superior isn’t being Aryan (quite the opposite) or especially cunning or whatever. They think so because it’s their religion – [the richest] american ‘1%’ is overwhelmingly jewish.” The second-most-favored comment was “America is NOT ruled by an aristocracy. It is ruled by a plutocracy. To be more precise it is ruled by a Judeo-pluto-kleptocracy.” The third-most-favored comment was “A better title would be ‘What America’s Jews Want’.”

So, I decided to see whether or not their basic assumption is true, that most of America’s billionaires and centi-millionaires — most of the people whose money controls the U.S. Government — are Jews. Although, obviously, there’s no scientifically justifiable reason to treat Jewish billionaires differently from non-Jewish ones, those readers believe that there is such a reason; and, so, seeking a possible fact-based reason for those comments (and for their popularity), I concentrated upon the allegation that America’s billionaires are “overwhelmingly Jewish.” It’s something that I had never looked into before, and it certainly would be interesting, if it is true (even if it doesn’t really relate to the question of how rational it is to ignore the impact that non-‘Jew’ish billionaires and centi-millionaires are having on American politics).

The Forbes 400 is the standard list of America’s wealthiest 400 individuals. At the present moment, as this is being written, on September 16th, here are the top 10:

#1: Bill Gates, $81B

#2: Jeff Bezos, $67B

#3: Warren Buffett, $65.5B

#4: Mark Zuckerberg, $55.5B

#5: Larry Ellison, $49.3B

#6: Michael Bloomberg, $45B

#7-8: Charles Koch, $42B

#7-8: David Koch, $42B

#9: Larry Page, $38.5B

#10: Sergey Brin, 37.5B

Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, and Brin, would have been called “Jews” by Adolf Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws (and, since Wikipedia’s censored article there ignores what the implications of being a “Mischlinge” or “mixed-race” person were, here’s that), which I presume is the standard, for what a “Jew” is, that those reader-comments were accepting and applying by their use of the term “Jew” — but those commenters didn’t indicate what they meant by “Jews.” One can only guess, but this seems to be the intent of those most-popular comments. If that’s what they were referencing, then 3 of the top 10 are probably “Jews.”

Next:

#11: Jim Walton, $35.6B

#12: S. Robson Walton, $35.5B

#13: Alice Walton, $35.4B

#14: Sheldon Adelson, $31.8B

#15: Steve Ballmer, $27.5B

#16-17: Jacqueline Mars, $27B

#16-17: John Mars, $27B

#18: Phil Knight, $25.5B

#19: George Soros, $24.9B

#20: Michael Dell, $20B

Adelson, Soros, and Dell, would probably have been treated as “Juden” in Hitler’s Germany.

Next:

#21: Paul Allen, $18.9B

#22: Len Blavatnik, $18.2B

#23: Laurene Powell Jobs, $17.7B

#24: James Simons, $16.5B

#25: Ray Dalio, $15.9B

#26: Carl Icahn, $15.7B

#27: Donald Bren, $15.2B

#28: Charles Ergen, $14.7B

#29: Abigail Johnson, $13.2B

#30: Harold Hamm, $13.1B

Blavatnik, Simons, Icahn, and Bren, probably would have qualified.

#31: Steve Cohen, $13B

#32: Thomas Peterffy, $12.6B

#33: Ronald Perelman, $12.2B

#34: Elon Musk, $11.6B

#35: David Tepper, $11.4B

#36: Eric Schmidt, $11.3B

#37: Lucas Walton, $11.2B

#38: Rupert Murdoch, $11.1B

#39-40: Philip Anschutz, $10.8B

#39-40: Jim Kennedy, $10.8B

Cohen, Perelman, and Tepper, probably would have qualified.

So, amongst the richest 10% of the Forbes 400 richest Americans — and that’s the richest 40 of them — 13, or 32.5%, would (or at least might) have qualified as “Jews” in Hitler’s Germany. The rest definitely would not. That isn’t “overwhelmingly jewish,” and it’s not even mostly Jewish (not nearly that); it is, instead, 32.5% who are possibly ‘Jew’ish, in Hitler’s definition (which seems to be what the commenters are applying, though they didn’t say; perhaps they’re simply not intelligent enough to define their own central terms — and there’s no way of knowing whether, for example, converts to Judaism are “Jews,” to them).

However, what about the 67.5%+, who are non-‘Jews’, and all of whom would have qualified as “Aryans” under Hitler. Why do these readers, who had commented, ignore those “aristocrats” (who still are among the people that really control America)? My article was about “the aristocracy,” not about “the Jews” — not at all. Why are so many readers obsessed with ‘Jews’, as being subjects for special blame, absolving all non-‘Jews’ — even non-‘Jews’ who are far richer than 99.9% of Jews (according to any definition)? And, why are they blaming those 99.9% who are ‘Jews’, but who are not at all super-rich? Where does this religious (or is it racist?) hatred come from? It certainly is counter-factual (in any case). It certainly is delusional. And it certainly is harmful — and not only to Jews. It mis-focuses blame. The same thing happened in the U.S. Jim-Crow-era South, by the many lynchings of innocent Blacks. Everyone suffers bigots — of every type.

And, of course, there are bigots of every type — some are Whites, some are Blacks, some are Jews, some are Christians, etc. The group is irrelevant. So, why do so many people even raise that issue, which isn’t actually an issue, at all?  Slavery in the United States (and the slave-trade) was originally a business owned by the British King, but then became more generally a business owned by the British aristocracy, and subsequently became a business owned by the emerging U.S. aristocracy — and all of these were almost exclusively Christian aristocrats, despite bigots’ emphasis upon the Jews who participated — so, how can any person who has a brain, simply ignore the barbarizms by the Christians who constituted the vast majority of America’s aristocracy, throughout American history. There are good and bad people of all religions, and of no religion, and of every nationality. The group is irrelevant.

Progress can’t be made, when and where bigots are common. Why do bigots ignore the aristocracy, and focus instead against “Jews,” “Muslims,” “Blacks,” “Chinese,” etc.? This  is a deflection, of blame (and, clearly, the blame belongs to the richest 1% — the “oligarchy” or “aristocracy” — and doesn’t belong to any ethnic or cultural minority). It’s a deflection, of blame, quite specifically, away from aristocrats themselves, and onto vulnerable groups within the general public, instead. Usually, media funded by conservative billionaires stir up the bigots; but, sometimes, media funded by liberal billionaires stir them up. Do the aristocrats and their agents (the ‘news’media, etc.) want and encourage that deflection of blame, so as to distract the public away from the real source of problems? Are bigots merely the aristocracy’s fools? Is that what all of this (bigotry that’s displayed in those reader-comments) is actually about — distracting fools, away from the actual source of their problems, so as to protect the tiny economic elite who are actually guilty for (and profiting from) the ceaseless invasions, corruption, immense wastage, and the resulting misery that’s suffered by the millions of victims of the policies that billionaires demand their politicians to produce? Are there billionaires who own or control newsmedia that condemn all the other newsmedia for their deceiving the public into supporting evil invasions, etc.? Which billionaires spoke out about — and hired and promoted journalists to report on — the lies that were producing America’s invasion of Iraq? Which billionaires and media exposed the lies that were behind (and that have since covered-up) the U.S. coup in Ukraine? Why were all of America’s super-rich on the side of invasions, and of coups? Isn’t it even so much as noticed by the bigots, that all of the billionaires — of all ethnicities — either supported these atrocities, or else otherwise wouldn’t employ journalists who wanted to report about them? Even just one billionaire could have done that, but none did. None reported on George W. Bush’s lies leading up to America’s 2003 invasion of Iraq, nor on Barack Obama’s lies about his bloody coup in Ukraine in 2014. None. Not even one. Any one of America’s billionaires could have (because each one of them possessed the financial means to do it), but none did so. The lies went unchallenged. And that’s because no billionaire cared to separate himself or herself from all the others and tell their media companies to hire the reporters who would report about the lying, instead of simply to report the lying statements. Democracy is impossible without truth. Ethnicity has nothing to do with the real problem.

    Interesting. By the numbers then. Percentages can tell a story.
    “In 2012, the American Jewish population was estimated at between 5.5 and 8 million, depending on the definition of the term, which constitutes between 1.7% and 2.6% of the total U.S. population”
    WikiP

    Wow! I would have thought it was a lot more. Just from watching TV.

    For a community that is 2% of the population 32.5 % of the richest people in America is mighty damn affluent! And probably top heavy with 1 percenters.
    32.5%

    What percentage of these 1 percenters are black? Blacks by contrast are 14.5% of US population. And 34% of prison population, BTW.

    Hmmmm…. I wonder what percentage of the prison population is Jewish? Don’t feel like looking it up.

    • cettel

      There ARE strong cultural differences, each reflecting far more on the history, than on the genetics, of any particular ethnic (&/or religious) group. Keep those conceptual distinctions clear, and truthful understanding is possible. Ignore those conceptual distinctions, and only bigotry results (which helps the aristocracy, in its age-old effort to deflect blame onto some vulnerable group).

      • nomadd

        i deliberately didnt address any of that stuff. just the numbers. and what they reveal.
        i.e. The Jewish community is hence top heavy with 1 percenters.
        i leave it to you and others to draw the implications.

        • LostInTheStars

          The Jewish community is not “top heavy with 1 percenters.” I would guess that 98% of American Jews are not in the top one percent. The fact that they are a little overrepresented in the top one percent probably reflects on the fact that Jews tend to be better educated. Soaring economic inequality in our country can be blamed on the one-percent, but not specifically on Jews.

          • nomadd

            uh huh. i just proved that they are. they are 2 % of the population yet 32.5% of one percent. please. use some logic.

          • LostInTheStars

            Let’s not conflate Jewish with Zionist. I am opposed to Netanyahu’s treatment of the Palestinians, and I believe AIPAC has far too much influence in Washington, D.C., but I have nothing against Jews as an ethnic or religious group. It is neither surprising nor bothersome to me that Jews are overrepresented in the top one percent. I would like to see other ethnic groups do as well. As things now stand, with the one percent owning our government and our politicians that is unlikely to happen, Our problems are not the Jews They are systemic injustices that have nothing to do with Judaism.

            By the way, what are you suggesting that we do: put Jews in concentration camps?

          • Tannenhouser

            “By the way, what are you suggesting that we do? Put Jews in concentration camps? Garnish their salaries? Confiscated their assets?”
            Actually YOU suggested that. Nomadd has suggested NOTHING except that Zuess is a ‘bit’ off/disingenuous with his research. As too what to do? If they are Zionists they should be registered as foreign agents for a start, and they should be held account of telling the truth through the media and other corps they may have control over. Just like most any other American.

          • nomadd

            not suggesting anything, dude. just sating facts. what are you, otoh, insinuating?

          • LostInTheStars

            You have stated no facts. You offer no data. All I see from your posts is Jew bashing. You are blaming the nation’s problems on Jews. Sounds like racism and bigotry to me.

          • nomadd

            lol. youre delusional.

          • Rainman

            You are all funny. What kind of name is Zuesse anyway?

          • Army of Addicts

            Yeah, let’s blame atheism/secularism/science for institutional injustice! That works.

          • cettel

            And both Jews and Asians are probably represented in the student-bodies of America’s most prestigious universities at a far higher percentage than are America’s non-Asian and the non-Jewish populations. Are you alleging that statistics such as that are necessarily indicating pro-Jewish &/or pro-Asian prejudices on the part of admissions-offices? If you aren’t, then why did you bring that issue up here?

          • nomadd

            because it is germaie. whats the problem. you brought up the subject and the numbers. i simply provided perspective. was something i said not accurate? whats the problem?

          • cettel

            The problem was the irrelevancy of your comment; it’s irrelevant to my article. Your saying that it’s “germane” is false. It’s not germane to what my article says. But you still don’t get that.

          • nomadd

            no i dont. you are in error.

    • Joan Griffith

      Don’t forget all the famous Jewish gangsters, some in jail, some not.

    • cettel

      Everything in your comment is irrelevant to my article.

      • nomadd

        i disagree.

  • kimyo

    total u.s. population: 330,000,000
    1% of same: 3,300,000.

    using a list of 40 people to ‘calculate’ the distribution of jews among the 3.3 million one-percenters: just another day at the brian williams school for aspiring journalists.

    • nomadd

      myself, i use 1 percent as a euphemism. its less cumbersome than what im really talking about. and its hard to calculate. probably the .0000001 percent.

    • cettel

      Yet again: that’s irrelevant to my article.

  • slorter

    What is Zionism! You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist!

    • cettel

      That’s irrelevant to my article.

      • slorter

        A simple reply! Why?

  • paul

    This article is as demented as the screeching of the haters who blame Tha Jews for everything. Jews have massively disproportionate power in America. That is a very real thing to discuss. And by no means is it all bad. About half the people who have helped me the most in my life have been jews. God love them. They have blessed me. They are some of the best human beings I have been around. Not all the implications of such disproportionate power is bad by any means. But the disproportion is a real thing that needs to be discussed.

    • cettel

      another trashy comment.

      The PROCESS of Western Civilization being hijacked by “Jews” really began in earnest, when the TRUE Aristocracy of England, the young landed & titled (but fiat-cash-poor-) Nobility or Noblemen of England, began marrying the daughters of wealthy “Jew”-ish bankers & merchants, their offspring, having a “Jew”-ish mother, were now considered “Jews” among the “Jews” themselves, but now, also had LAND & TITLES OF ENGLISH NOBILITY (in name only.)

    Thanks for whitewashing you tribe as usual, Eric.

    Jeffrey (Jeff) Preston Bezos (US$90.7 billion) is richer than Bill Gate (US$81 billion).

    • cettel

      Those aren’t the estimates from Forbes, but perhaps you get your estimates from some higher source.
      Anyway, here’s the wikipedia article on Bezos
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Bezos
      ; and here’s the wikipedia article on Gates
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates
      ; and, according to wikipedia, neither of them would qualify as a “Jew” under Hitler’s system; but, of course, your system might be different, and you seem to care only that Hitler’s goal will be carried out by someone who isn’t Hitler, but you also want to define “Jew” differently than he did.
      Tsk, tsk.

      • Rehmat

        Well – only some idiot doesn’t know that Wikipedia is an Israeli disinformation shit like MEMERI. Bezos, the owner of amazon and Washinton Post is as much Jewish as Benjamin Netanyahu.
        As for Hitler is concerned, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone says he was as a Zionist creep as John Hagee.
        Tsk, tsk, tsk ….

    • MCB
  • The issue doesn’t go away by downplaying it. The top 1% contains a disproportionate number of Jews (whether it is 30% or 50% it doesn’t matter, because Jews make up only 2% of the US population). Clearly, the US has one of the most corrupt political systems in the world and that benefits the top 1%. But let’s not blame the Jews for that. Americans let it happen.

  • hyperbola

    Other sources suggest that the “classifications” used in this story are incorrect and/or (intentionally?) misleading.

    Jewish Billionaires
    http://www.subvertednation.net/jew-lists/jewish-billionaires/comment-page-1/

    For example, amongst the “top-ten”, (in addition to the three given by Zuesse) are also:

    Warren Buffet – crypto-jew Berkshire Hathaway
    Larry Ellison – CEO Oracle Communication
    Charles Koch – CEO/chairman Koch Industries
    David Koch – co-owner Koch Industries
    Larry Page – co-founder/co-owner Google

    The “discrepancy” probably arises from the ambiguous groupings jew/zionist/mason/religious/atheist….. AND from the strong efforts to suppress information on the real background of such people. Ellison, for example, was apparently adopted and raised in a Russian jewish family.

    The censorship in the US is now reaching the point that accurate information is more likely to be found in foreign language sites. This includes censorship of Wikipedia.

    Murder Inc.– Jews And Italians Unite
    http://www.therichest.com/rich-list/most-popular/15-shocking-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-jewish-mafia/

    It all started back with gangsters wanting to pull resources together to create an infrastructure of power and money. This was the coming together of the most powerful Jews and Italians in New York and Chicago. They established themselves as a force. The Italian mafia would take a lot of public hits over the years but make no mistake about it- the Jewish Mafia was side by side with them. Started by Charles “Lucky” Luciano, Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, Murder Inc. rose as the most powerful check and balance system in the Tri-state area. Murder Inc., known as The National Crime Syndicate, carried out so many hits that they were one of the most feared racketeering groups ever created. This group of Italian and Jewish hitman left a trail of blood wherever they went and both mafias enjoyed a massive level of control. The relationship of the Jews and the Italians continued all the way through to Las Vegas on the West Coast where they flourished as East Coast business and competition grew. There’s been a long-standing relationship between the Jews and Italians, one that enable both organizations to enjoy massive profitability and expansion…………..
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Apart from straight out criminal activities, one should also look into how the “power structures” in the US have been corrupted to favor sects. Many of the “mafia crimes” are more subtle.

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-federal-reserve-cartel-the-eight-families/25080
    …… 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome…….
    ______________________________________________________________________
    Whether the Rockefellers represent a non-jewish exception in that list of families or are deep-crypto sephardic jews (from France via Turkey) is a topic that is debated.

    Finally, perhaps one should ask Zuesse why he is so desperate to “defend” a rather small religious sect?

    Well if the article is true, other nationalities may question why they don’t have get pie from the cake? Easy way is to blame but difficult thing is to work harder.

      but difficult thing is to work harder

      ie: ‘blacks are lazy’? please.

        i was just checking that subtext
        “you blacks could be oligarchs too if youd just work harder!”

  • isn’t it better to use “eligibility of moving to Israel according to the Israeli Law of Return”, instead of obscure Nurnberg Laws?

  • 32.5% versus 2% of population. But the real issue is their heavy concentration in key sectors like media and news which they control as an in-group. I will let you judge how that’s been working out. I could go and on, and the linked to site allows this, be sure to check Wall Street, but here are a few examples.
    -Of the sixty-seven(67) senior executives of the major television and radio news networks, forty-seven(47) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 70%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major television and radio news networks by a factor of 35 times(3,500 percent).

    -Of the sixty-four(64) senior executives of the major television broadcast networks, cable networks, and production companies, fifty-seven(57) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 89%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major television broadcast networks, cable networks, and production companies by a factor of 44.5 times(4,450 percent).

    -Of the sixty(60) senior executives of the major Hollywood studios, trade unions, and talent agencies, fifty(50) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 83%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major Hollywood studios, trade unions, and talent agencies by a factor of 41.5 times(4,150 percent).

      I think it’s telling as well the sites you have to go to to find out this information. I remember reading of Jewish monopoly of the media from time to time. And I was going to reference that for Zeusse, but I could not find a ‘familiar’, for lack of a better word, alternate news site that talked about this.. It’s off the table of mainstream and major alternate media discourse. I saw a laughable article, in this regard, at HuffPo by Alan Derschowitz (sp) that explained nothing. It is something everybody apparently knows but nobody in the mainstream or the virtual mainstream wants to talk about.

  • paul

    Since Mr. Nasty, ie Saker, has raised the heat on this gatekeeping screed and has vowed to go troll hunting on his site in defense of it, I advocate that gatekeeper Zeusse be generally banned from the alternate internet. This banning shit may not work both ways, but it should. You want to hunt down commenters who disagree with you (assuming you don’t distance yourself from Mr. Nasty), Zeusse? Fine. Then I think it’s time you were knocked off your pedestal. Ban Zeusse! Let him write his thoughts in a diary that some scholar looking for a phd thesis can read 100 years from now…

      scholar1: seems like a variant of 20th century english, but most of it is completely indecipherable.
      scholar2: wait a sec, i think it’s meant to be ironic, this has got to be a guide on how NOT to write an essay.

      (better than a ban: zuesse admits his many failures and comes over from the dark side. he pens piece after insightful piece arguing that voting (on diebold) doesn’t matter. that polls don’t matter. that the sauds funding the hijackers is a meaningless distraction when what really needs to be established is who wired the wtc buildings for demolition. that social ‘science’ (ie: progressives are more moral people than conservatives) is NOT science. that his former ‘strategy’ of voting for trump may have contained a subtle flaw.)

    Here’s the deal. They can be kind and generous to Gentiles they like. They will always pick one of their own over you if they must though. They will fraternize with you but aren’t truly your friends. Many of the younger, reform crowd probably aren’t obsessed with any kind of Jewish superiority but they are conditioned to believe that they are SMARTER than everyone else and that’s why they’re more successful. They do NOT accept that they aren’t, athough they are very quick to ally with super smart Indians or Chinese and back them financially. They’re not above signing on to research they didn’t actually do, or taking credit for writing things they didn’t actually write. You misunderstand their kindness, it could simply be condescension and acknowledgement that you have accepted a subservient position, even though you don’t think you have. Far more than we realize there’s a network of Mossad spies called “syannim” and they’re everywhere, local public politics, schools, companies, hospitals, everywhere. They do the work under threat and their job is to report any suspicious behavior or tendancies. I watched a video where a Morrocan Jew, who had been fairly high up in the organization, admitted it. In the past they paid these people, now they just threaten their families. I’m sorry Zuesse but there are more Jews in your list than you realize. Double first names are usually a red flag, Mars is Jewish, so are Gates, Bezos and Ellison most likely. Now you’ll tell me that their mothers weren’t, bet I’ll bet there’s a Jewish grandparent or 2 in there and you can’t go on whether or not they self identify for sure. Many of them deny it now and the Talmud allows them to be practicing Protestants if they want just to swindle us even more. I once suggested that we should mount a mass intermarrying campaign to dilute the bloodline in to extinction, but even Russ Winter didn’t comment on that. By the way, I have Jewish “friends”, but I understand what that means. Don’t be fooled. It’s not that they don’t have hearts ( although some really don’t) it’s their conditioning. I’ve run into many Jewish females who hate it, or say they do, but if you leave the fold, you might as well just die.

    And let’s not forget, the truly super rich aren’t Jews at all, they’re primarily Satanic- a whole other brand of psychosis.

  • max gon

    Very good article by Eric Zuesse.

  • hyperbola

    The long comment that I submitted yesterday has been removed – even though it contained to links to further information from credible sources. It seems that Washingtons Blog now censors comments that are not “kosher” with the thought-control operations of the sect. It is time to break up the sect’s media monopolies and put an end to manipulation of Americans by foreign sects.

      thanks for being persistent. good links.

  • One of the ironies of life: Whenever any group is disproportionately represented in any group, caucasian christians claim discrimination. Jews in business and finance, Blacks in sports and so on and so forth.
    If there’s any actual harm, it would require a pretty granular analysis to determine. For example, is Sheldon Adelson worse than the Koch brothers to Robert Mercer?
