- From southern France, Christopher Jones summarizes and
comments on a report on the assassination of President Kennedy. Need I
stress that WAIS censors only direct attacks on other WAISers and grossly
- Christopher says: "I glanced at the Kennedy assassination
site and found this; it fits into our discussion of Hollywood stereotypes
and the slavish behavior of the US press after the 9/11 tragedy and in
the run up to the invasion of Iraq. In a quick rundown, the website recapitulates
an old story that I heard back in the late sixties and early seventies
in California: that Kennedy was liquidated by the mafia whose kingpin was
Meyer Lansky (pal of Lucky Luciano). In fact, I could add a small tidbit
which the author may or may not have covered: that Marilyn Monroe was murdered
by the mafia as a warning to her lovers; Bobby and Jack Kennedy. The story
of the Corsican hit squad was documented in a TV documentary in Europe.
Of course it would be interesting to know more about Auguste Ricord and
his collaboration wih the Gestapo and if he had anything to do with our
old friend, Mandel Szkolnikoff.
- "Today, seven Jewish Americans run the vast majority
of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry,
the book publishing industry, and the recording industry. Most of these
industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following
- Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner
- Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company
- Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd
- Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company
Ltd and head of Universal Studios
- Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc
- Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric
- Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation
- Those seven Jewish men collectively control ABC, NBC,
CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records,
Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal
Records, and Interscope Records.
- Most of the larger independent newspapers are owned by
Jewish interests as well. An example is media mogul is Samuel I. "Si"
Newhouse, who owns two dozen daily newspapers from Staten Island to Oregon,
plus the Sunday supplement Parade; the Conde Nast collection of magazines,
including Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Allure, GQ, and Self; the
publishing firms of Random House, Knopf, Crown, and Ballantine, among other
imprints; and cable franchises with over one million subscribers."
- I coul d add that Michael Eisner could depart Disney
tomorrow but the company will remain in the hands of Shamrock Holdings,
whose principal office is now located in Israel".
- Bronfman Group Buys Time Warner Music
- NEW YORK (Reuters) - Time
Warner Inc. (TWX.N: Quote, Profile, Research) on Monday said it would sell
its Warner Music business to a group led by media mogul Edgar Bronfman
Jr. for $2.6 billion, in a move to trim the media group's debts and signaling
a return of the former Seagram chairman to the music business.
- The Bronfman group beat out a bid by EMI (EMI.L: Quote,
Profile, Research) for the recorded music portion of the business for an
estimated $1 billion.
- By choosing the Bronfman bid, Time Warner is forsaking
$250 million to $300 million in cost savings it could have realized by
combining with EMI, home to such acts as The Beatles and Radiohead. Warner
Music artists include Madonna, Led Zeppelin and R.E.M.
- On the other hand, Time Warner is getting more cash up
front by selling the entire business, which includes the music publishing
company, and will have an easier path to regulatory approval. In the past,
European and U.S. regulators have frowned on consolidation within the music
- Bronfman's team, backed by some of America's biggest
private equity houses including Thomas H. Lee Partners, is betting it can
slash costs and turn Warner Music around ahead of a comeback in sales,
a major challenge in an industry currently in decline.
- Bronfman has had long ties to the music business, first
as a songwriter for the likes of Dionne Warwick and Celine Dion, and later
as head of Seagram when he bought entertainment group MCA from Japan's
Matsushita for $5.7 billion. On his watch, the renamed Universal Music
bought Polygram, creating the world's largest record company.
- Bronfman merged his family's entertainment empire with
France's Vivendi three years ago, only to see the family fortune disintegrate.
When Vivendi put its entertainment assets on the block earlier this year,
Bronfman led a group to buy the assets back but was ultimately outbid by
- Hit by rampant piracy and competition from other entertainment
such as video games, music sales are expected to fall for the fourth year
in a row in 2004.

- Hi Jeff - I am Jewish and I take exception to some of
the articles you post on your site. However, this particular article is
staggering in its implications. It is said there are less than 15 million
Jews on the planet. Most of us...and I know a lot of people... are kind,
normal and not megalomaniacal in our approach to life. When someone of
ANY religious or political persuasion reads this story and then also factors
in the dominance of Jews in finance and the economy, government, science,
the medical profession, the legal profession - in fact all the professions
- one has to come away pondering how such staggering influence has been
acquired by such a microscopic percent of the world's 7 BILLION people.
For ANY group to wield such power clearly and obviously injects profound
bias and skewing into all areas of a nation so dominated. Is there a Zionist/Jewish
bias in Western society and especially the US? Is grass green? It is often
whispered that Baron Rothschild really owns and controls Great Britain.
It is reported that 7 of the 8 oligarch/gangsters who control most of Russia
are Jews ...probably hard core Zionists. (Maybe Putin is trying to prevent
a total Zionist takeover of Russia with the Lukos oil magnate's arrest?)
And then look at the Zionist Jewish near domination of the Bush administration
(no coincidence, that) and the more than one trillion dollars the kindly
American people have given to Israel in 'loan guarantees'...not a penny
of which has ever...or will ever... be paid back. I could go on but it
when a Jew starts to point out the facts and connect the dots, they are
quickly smeared as 'self-hating' and so forth. Well, this Jew is an American
first and I'm hoping you continue to post factual articles like this on
your site. Thank you.
