Philip Giraldi: “Israel’s Agents of Influence”


Written by Philip Giraldi; Originally appeared at The Unz Review

Some journalists in the Jewish media are starting to complain that President Donald Trump is “loving Israel” just a little too much since he keeps citing his concern for the Jewish state as the driving force behind some of his erratic behavior. It is a viewpoint that I most definitely share, though I would describe the apparent White House lovefest with the Israel as a “lot too much.” When the President of the United States calls a congresswoman an anti-Semite and demands that she apologize to him personally and also to Israel it is definitely a lot too much.

Philip Giraldi: "Israel's Agents of Influence"

So Israel is always in the news, or so it seems, though it is often not in the news when the story might be derogatory. The story disappears from sight as soon as it is determined that Israel might be involved, as is currently the case with Jeffrey Epstein, or Israeli activity is excised completely as was the case with the Mueller investigation where Russiagate should have really been called Israelgate as it was Israel that was seeking favors from the incoming Trump Administration, not Russia. As Noam Chomsky put it, Israeli interference in American politics “vastly overwhelms” anything Russia has done.

I have recently written about how the Jewish state works hard to brainwash the American people and limit the foreign policy options of the U.S. government, to include aggressive efforts to obtain what the intelligence agencies would call “agents of influence.” Agents of influence live and work in one country while simultaneously and treacherously advancing the interests of another nation. It is what George Washington warned about in his Farewell Address when he counseled “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Foreign influence as a potential national security threat is also a status defined in legal terms by the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA), which requires anyone working on behalf of a foreign government to register and make transparent sources of income.

Uniquely, no foundation or individual working in America to advance the interests of the Jewish state has ever been required to register under FARA even though many, like the odious American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), boast unambiguously on their websites that they are “America’s pro-Israel Lobby.” Many of the foundations are regarded as educational or charitable 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profits, which means the U.S. taxpayer is helping support their activity. But being a non-profit charity does not necessarily mean austerity, as the salaries of top employees are generous. Canadian Jew Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), a 501(c)3, is paid $560,000 in salary and benefits. FDD has for many years been calling for war against Iran.

The most recent foundation being set up by Israel’s friends to promote the interests of the Jewish state is the Edmund Burke Foundation, which hosted a conference on “Nationalism” last week. The conference was interesting in that the Burke Foundation is headed by an Israeli and an American Jew who has served as Executive Director of the Christians United For Israel (CUFI). The event was held at the Washington D.C. Ritz-Carlton, suggesting that the Burkeans are not short of cash. Pro-Israel groups always seem to have plenty of Benjamins.

A number of traditional conservatives and even some organizations were fooled by the promotional material and speakers’ list into thinking that the program was legitimate and would focus on supporting national interests as well as foreign policy restraint, but some at least had their eyes opened when John Bolton, as featured speaker, was vigorously applauded by at least half of the audience.

Some potential critics of the agenda were not invited or even deliberately denied tickets to limit dissent, and several attendees were appalled by what they had witnessed, which was essentially an affirmation of status quo foreign policy, to the benefit of the hawks in Washington and Israel. Inevitably, some delusional dimwits were unable to understand that they were being used and were oddly entranced by what they were seeing and hearing. And don’t worry if you are among those who missed the event. It will probably be replayed in a few months under a different name and with a slightly different cast of characters.

The most visible Israeli tool for generating contacts with Americans that might prove useful is the all- expenses-paid VIP junkets that are arranged for Congressmen. New Congressmen routinely travel to Israel for a dog-and-pony show within months of their taking office. One of Congress’s leading cheerleaders for Israel, Maryland’s Steny Hoyer has visited the Jewish state many times and can be relied on to pressure freshman congressmen to make the trip. Other Americans who might be influential in the future are also feted by the Israeli hospitality machine. American military cadets from the service academies and colleges are now being brought to Israel to learn a fictional version of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Undoubtedly, some of them are set up for intelligence approaches after they are commissioned.

Which brings us to the pedophile Jeffrey Epstein story and how it is being handled by government and covered in the media since the story exploded two weeks ago. No one outside the alternative media seems to be interested in the possibility, or rather likelihood, that Epstein was working for a foreign intelligence service, which would most likely be Israel. In the media the Epstein story died almost immediately, submerged in the tale of Donald Trump telling several congresswomen to go back where they came from.

It is unlikely that the spying aspect of Epstein’s alleged crimes will even be investigated both because it involves the Jewish state and also becomes it appears to include participation by leading politicians from both parties and other public figures. The Deep State will make the story die, which just might also be what happens to Epstein in jail.

The evidence that Epstein was involved in intelligence work most likely bribing or blackmailing prominent individuals to act on behalf of Israel, derives both from the statement made by former U.S. Attorney for Miami Alexander Acosta that “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone” and from other external evidence. Epstein was making videos of his guests having sex with his young girls, which is a version of a classic intelligence entrapment technique referred to as a “honey trap” that is employed by every major spy agency worldwide. And the Acosta quote – will it ever be fully investigated? Who told him that Epstein was “intelligence” and what were the circumstances?

Jeffrey’s sources of income have also been questioned. Epstein’s sole identified business connection was Ohio billionaire Les Wexner, who maintained very close ties to the upper echelons of the Israeli diplomatic and intelligence establishment. Epstein served as Wexner’s trustee when the latter was forming the Mega Group, created by Wexner and Edgar Bronfman to generate positive views of Israel as a cover for Israeli propaganda dissemination in America.

Epstein’s lack of an identifiable income stream rather suggests that he might have been supported by a government agency of some kind. He had hidden in his Manhattan house a great deal of cash, diamonds and an Austrian passport. The diamonds might have represented payment in kind from Israel, which is capital of the world diamond trade, and the existence of the passport is intriguing. It has been described in the media as “fake” but that can mean anything. The passport, dating from the 1980s, was apparently authentic with a photo of Epstein and a fake name inserted in it, but it might plausibly be the product of a government document forgery lab. Why Austria? Because Austria was at the time politically neutral and the passport would be a good one for traveling anywhere. It would be much preferred by spy agencies or by agents who wanted to travel anonymously.

That Epstein would be linked to Israel rather than to some other intelligence service is due to his relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell, whose father Robert, a Czech Jew who became a naturalized British citizen, was believed by C.I.A. and other intelligence services to be a long-time agent of Mossad. After he died under mysterious circumstances, he was given a state funeral in Israel that was attended by every current and former head of the Jewish state’s intelligence service as well as by the country’s prime minister Yitzhak Shamir. Ghislaine was reportedly Epstein’s close friend and a procurer of his young girl victims.

As most of Israel’s agents of influence are now on Martha’s Vineyard where they gather in July and August, it would be wonderful to cut off all transportation and communication with the island and leave them there, but that would be unfair to the genuine year-round residents. Alternatively, I would be happy just to see Israel’s dire influence over the United States exposed by the media and discussed in public fora by the more than 20 Democratic Party presidential wannabes. As that is not likely to happen, I would settle for a real honest-to-God investigation of Epstein and what he was doing coupled with a move by the Treasury and Justice departments against all the hundreds of pro-Israel groups that have never registered under FARA. It’s a big job to uncover Israeli subversion, but somebody needs to start doing it.

    Congress women should apologise to Israel, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabab, Bokoharam and to Donald Trump.

    • William Wallace

      Why should they? Don’t they have a 1st amendment right to free speech?

      And why apologize to Israel? None of the 4 congresswoman mentioned Israel by name? And even if they did, so what?

      • Debra

        It’s called ‘satire’…look into it.

        • William Wallace

          Was it?

          “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said,” Trump said in a Twitter post.

            I don’t think these women are capable of loving because of how the USA is run is what you really meant to say. The current and past administrations and it’s associated 3 letter agencies along with Israel and Zionist interests have basically destroyed the values the USA USED TO pride themselves on. Pretty much since the Rothschilds took power back in the late 1700’s is pretty much when modern society was universally taken over by a family of rich liars and decievers. Today the USA is nothing more than a vassal state controlled by Zionists interests and agenda. These women are really commenting on this but as they work for the same evil empire that keeps them alive they cannot or maybe not be aware of this and so are ignorant of the real powers that run the USA. Females have a 6th sense that men don’t possess and they can detect bullshit a mile away. Basically they are voicing their dissatisfaction with the whole fucked up system of US politics and the powers that control the puppet Trump. The puppet masters hands are up T-rumps arse making his mouth speak what they tell him. They have blackmailed him, re Epstein, and so he must do their bidding or else!

    Yes, Mr Geraldi…someone does need to go after these ‘creatures’. Unfortunately, it’s the foxes who are guarding the henhouse and it just ain’t gonna happen. Israel is protected in the media by silence…of their crimes and influence. People can read about their crimes everyday in the alt media, but the cloak of silence falls on the traitors in our government, rendering any sort of action unlikely. EVERY US politician knows the truth, as they are exposed to the Israeli influence day in, day out. But, since they don’t want their proclivities to be general knowledge, silence is golden…at least if they want to live or have a career. The only honest politician that has a no holds barred attitude towards Israel that is running, but will be ignored to the end…is Mike Gravel. He pointed to all the other democratic candidates (back in ’08) and said that they were all bought and paid for. They laughed, but it was a nervous laugh. The media is owned by the same crew as Trump is, which means the whole media vs Trump is naught but a facade. It’s strange how they are enemies, except when cheerleading for Israel, war, regime change and sanctions…then they’re all on the same page, singing the same praises. Let’s not even get into who creates, controls and supports ISIS, Al Qaeda and every rotten action world-wide (9/11, 7/7, MH17)…and why all this is happening in the first place.

    • Luke Hemmming

      Hear hear! Well said. Let’s go for the jugular…Let’s go for the Rothschilds family banking cartel first then after that every fucking rich and powerful families , in other words TPTB.

    Trump blind grand mother must apologize to him for raising him as a spoil supremacist child.

  • Xoli Xoli

    The brilliant four American ladies exposed every hidden agenda and falsehoods of Trump administration tactic.Destroying Arabs countries because of their oil and claiming none existant Israelsafety threat.Gay marriage between Boris and Trump will soon be announced.

    • Concrete Mike

      Lol for the last line!!

  • RichardD

    The internet is becoming the new msm. The exposure of Jew crime and evil is expanding, not contracting. There needs to be a UN resolution outlawing Judaism as an evil pedophile mass rape cult and criminal organization. Similar to what’s been done with slavery and terrorism.

  • Luke Hemmming

    You betcha Israel is involved with Epstein. Anything to do with child sex and child sacrifice those Zionists will have their hands in it.
