My perception is that the figure worldwide is at least 50%.
Comments to Steve Sailer:
* Steve Sailer has never been shy about pointing out three crucial points:
(1) American Jews are now, and have long been, disproportionately successful compared to American gentiles, when it comes to their share of wealth and power.
(2) Therefore (according to the traditional mores of American gentiles), they ought to adopt an attitude of “noblesse oblige” – i.e., a condescending kindness to their gentile inferiors.
(3) But, instead, they relentlessly persist in playing the role of the victim, for all it’s worth, regardless of the facts.
This is a huge problem.
* By some reasonable (dissident haredi Jewish) estimates, 80% of NY/NJ black hat Jews are on welfare. How else could it be when the black hat ne plus ultra lifestyle is to hang out with the guys all day in the local kollel [adult Jewish guy religious school], while banging out a house full of kids and sending the wife off to work to make a few bucks for the family.
Make regular trips to the Failed Messiah website and find out what is really going on with the welfare scams, kidnappings and beatings, bought-off NYC politicians cops and prosecutors, and child molestation cover ups.
Failed Messiah is a website by and for assimilated Jews who know the black hat community intimately, and how anti-liberal it is.
If their lifestyle is “super affordable” and worthy of emulation, so is the lifestyle of the ghetto baby daddy with ten kids, and for the same reasons: other people’s money. Plus unremitting religious, cultural, social, and racial segregation.
* Read the Jewish press. When Jews get hot under the collar they love to fling “Nazi” and “Hitler” at each other, paint swastikas and such. Ultra-orthodox Jews do it in Israel all the time. It really chaps the heinies of secular Jews. It’s almost an intramural sport.
Only Jews don’t sue each other for really, really hurt feelings in Israel. My guess is that most Israeli judges and juries treat such nastiness as nothing more than loud-mouthed obnoxious politics and would advise the defendants to grow a thicker skin if they ever tried to wrap themselves in the Holocaust flag and weep about their emotional trauma. Israeli politics is a full contact sport, and Israeli Jews (unlike weepy Western Jews) can dish it out as well as take it.
But the goyim in the West (well, Christians, anyway–Muslims not so much) have an internalized race guilt that is much more easily exploited.
* Yes–that was a fascinating episode of “This American Life.” It showed the utter contempt in which the Hasidim hold those outside their community and their ruthlessness in acting solely in their own interest and with disregard for everyone else’s. I was surprised it was aired on public radio.
* The Benny Steinmetz saga continues. The FT is doing a series (they are very good on business corruption in the Third World) on the BSGR Corp. / Steinmetz saga. This combines all ISteve obsessions: grotesque African corruption, Men In Gold Chains, dirty deals, mega corporations fighting.
Short version: Guinea has an entire mountain made of almost pure Iron Ore. It is of course in Guinea, and even worse in the middle of nowhere. Probably worth a lot less with falling Chinese demand. But its still worth something. A multinational, Rio Tinto (UK/Aussie) mining company obtained the rights. Vale (a Brazilian multinational) wanted it. They used Benny Steinmetz, operator of the Benny Steinmetz Group Resources (BSGR) to bribe the dying dictator (and his wife) considerable sums to have the rights turned over to BSGR which then sold them to Vale. The dictator died, and the new guy is hopping mad … he didn’t get any bribe money. Needless to say the whole deal is off, Tinto is suing both Vale and Steinmetz, the widow made off to Switzerland with millions, and Steinmetz is being investigated by the FBI and the Swiss authorities. Steinmetz himself lives in Geneva.
What amazes me is how low rent everything is. Steinmetz has “only” (yeah I know) $3.5 billion. By comparison, Bill Gates has about $80 billion and Carlos Slim and Warren Buffett about 72 billion. According to Google.
Lesson: bribing African dictators is hard work. And it pays relatively little compared to establishing a world wide monopoly for years on PC operating systems and office suites, or Mexicans phoning home, or creating insurance based mega corps.
* Raj Rajnaratum, of Galleon Fame. His entire insider trading ring included Anil Kumar and Rajat Gupta of McKinsey. There’s also Fabulous Fab, Fabrice Tourre, the Black guy at some British trading firm (a relative of some African dictator), about a zillion Chinese sharp guys selling junk on the financial markets (non existent shell companies), and the IIRC, White WASP guy making London Whale trades at JP Morgan. There is also the LIBOR and Gold Fixing scandals, resulting in prosecutions. Anju Jain of Deutschbank is probably looking at charges there.
Financial Fraud seems to come in three flavors: rogue traders encouraged to take more risks exploiting weak controls to make back losses and getting in ever deeper: Toure being a good example. The others, ethno rings exploiting insider info, laws are made for dopes etc; and cartels of cozy traders who move about each others firms like LIBOR and the Gold Fix cartels.
* Though Jewish hysteria pisses me off, it makes perfect sense from a business and medical perspective.
If you’re in business, what do you do to stay in business? To grab attention and sell stuff, you have to keep convincing people that they are sick, too fat, un-hygienic, unfulfilled, and etc, etc. If people felt secure and content, why would they buy your product? You have to keep sounding the alarm. So, even in a safe neighborhood, you have to spread fear about burglars so that everyone will get an alarm system. You have to make people feel that they don’t take enough vitamins. You have tell people that they need a certain exercise equipment or they’ll become fat and unfit. You gotta make people feel anxious, unfulfilled, fearful, and etc. to grab their attention and sell stuff.
Most political and social professionals are in the business of making people feel anxious, afraid, unsafe, crisis-ridden, insecure, and etc. Only then will people pay heed to their advice, ‘wisdom’, recommendations, warnings, and etc.
A whole bunch of Jews in media, academia, and other social science professions would be out of a job unless they constantly made us feel that SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!
But Jewish fear-mongering is also understandable from a medical viewpoint. In medicine, they say prevention is the BEST way. So, don’t wait for the problem to get out of hand. Go for prevention before the problem begins. If you let the problem fester, it may TOO LATE.
Better to be worried than complacent and found out too late when the disease has progressed.
And in away, this is a good advice. After all, look what happened because America ignored and overlooked the problem of Jewish radicalism? Americans just let it fester, and it grew and grew and now messed up America royally. And look at the ‘gay’ germ. America tolerated it and let it grow, and now we have homos forcing ‘gay’ propaganda in elementary schools so that young ones will grow up worshiping homos. America is now totally ‘gay’-diseased cuz it tolerated its initial incubation.
So, it is smart from a medical viewpoint for Jews to get alarmed about anti-Jewishness before it even takes shape. It’s like preventing forest fire by forbidding even a flicker is better than dealing with the fire once it flares into sizable flame. And given the nature of Jewish power and influence, anti-Jewish rage is certainly possible in America.
But, there is an aspect of hypochondria in the Jewish mania, I must say.
