The Dirt On IRA & Ingeborg Rennert

nina-rosenwald-Varet-Rennert-2Through my research into Nina Rosenwald and Gatestone Institute I came across the name Ingeborg Rennert in the list of Gatestone Institute Board of Governors, as seen below.Board-of-Gatestone-Institute-Screen-Capture-Ingeborg-Rennert

Since using this screenshot in a video, the list of Board of Governors has been removed from the Gatestone Institute website. I take that as a sign that they don’t want myself and others prying into these people. Maybe they have something to hide?

Nina  Rosenwald with an award she received at the Israel’s Open University Foundation benefit. You’ll notice in this article that Jews like giving eachother awards.


Israel’s Open University Foundation benefit raised a total of $620,000. The event was hosted by Foundation President Ingeborg Rennert and Baron Robert de Rothschild. Guests in attendance included Police Comissioner Ray Kelly, Elie Wiesel, lawyer and political commentator Alan Dershowitz and Commonwealth Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks who addressed the gathering.


Another connection through the Gatestone Institute to the Rennerts is Donald Trump’s new National Security Advisor John Bolton. John Bolton is the Chairman of Gatestone Institute. Bolton has played a significant role in this networks operations. He was one of the first people to endorse Donald Trump on Breitbart News radio. His superPAC and Breitbart are funded by Robert Mercer. Mercer’s daughter Rebekah is on the Gatestone Board of Governors.

The Guardian of Zion Award is an annual award given since 1997 to Jews who have been supportive of the State of Israel. It is awarded at the Ingeborg Rennert Center for Jerusalem Studies at Bar-Ilan University.


At the 2017 Guardian of Zion Award Ceremony John Bolton received the award.  The Ceremony is held annually in the King David Hotel. I’m sure that is a symbolic reference paying homage to the Irgun terrorist attack on the hotel that led to the founding of the state of Israel.


In 2016 Donald Trump’s good friend and President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder received the award.


The first ever recipient of the award was the discredited Elie Wiesel. Wiesel and his wife were close of the Rennerts for years.  Before his death, Wiesel was an adviser to the Gatestone Institute. The Zionist network used Wiesel to build a victimhood status with Holocaust propaganda which the network has effectively used to hide their Jewish supremacist mind-set and bigotry. They also protected him and provided a huge platform and financing through speaking events.


Joseph Malovany is Chazzan at The Orthodox Fifth Avenue Synagogue that Rennert attends. In May, 2010, a new mikvah at the Fifth Avenue Synagogue was dedicated. Funding for construction was provided by Ira Rennert.

The Rennerts are also tied to the pro-Jewish Zionist and anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney. The couple are donors to the Center for Security Policy which Gaffney runs. The image below shows a donation made by the Rennerts to the CSP taken from the CSP’s Schedule B 990 form.

Thick as thieves


“You can judge a person by the company they keep”
So….who is Ira Rennert?

Ira was born in 1934 in Brooklyn New York. Rennert’s parents were Jewish immigrants from Poland and Romania.He is a graduate of Brooklyn College in 1954, and earned his master’s degree from New York University’s Stern School of Business in 1956, where he later was on the Board of Overseers.

Early warning signs

Rennert started his career as a credit analyst on Wall Street in 1956. He also served as a partner at Rubin, Rennert & Co., before launching his own business, I. L. Rennert & Co. in 1962. At this time he was censured by the National Association of Securities Dealers for operating with insufficient capital. This occurred again in 1963 and as a result, his license was revoked on November 29, 1964, effectively banning him from the securities industry. According to a company spokesman, Jon Goldberg: “Due to market conditions, the firm found itself in violation of the net capital rule and Rennert raised capital and put it into the firm to bring it into compliance. However, the firm once more fell beneath the net-capital requirements and he shut the company down.

Junk bond financing

Michael Milken —as a bond trader for Drexel Burnham Lambert—was successful selling high-risk, high-yield bonds issued by struggling or undercapitalized companies.

Integrated Resources raised $2 billion in junk bonds financed by Milken but ultimately collapsed amid scandal and defaulted on $1 billion of bond debt in May 1989 (see the 1991 book Den of Thieves about the junk bond scandal). As an outside board member, Rennert was not dragged down by the collapse and began to raise junk bonds on his own behalf to finance acquisitions for the Renco Group.


Rennert’s strategy for building Renco was to acquire all the shares of struggling companies and to finance the acquisition by issuing junk bonds. Along the way, Rennert paid substantial dividends out of the business to himself. In a series of junk bond issues since 1995, Renco’s subsidiaries have borrowed an estimated $1.1 billion and transferred $322 million (29 percent) to Renco Group, according to documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Backed by blue-chip mutual funds and hedge funds such as John Hancock Funds LLC and Putnam Investment Management LLC, Rennert now didn’t have to invest much of his own money.

His purchase of AM General in 1992 was bought with a down payment of just $10 million. In 1994, Fluor Corp. of Los Angeles sold the Doe Run Company to Renco, with the latter paying $52 million in cash, and approximately $60 million in debt payable over an eight-year period. In 1997, Doe Run went on to pay $247 million for a similarly environmentally troubled lead smelting complex from the Peruvian government, as well as borrowing more money to service its Fluor Corporation debt. And in 1998, Doe Run sold $305 million in junk bonds for financing its Peruvian acquisition as well as more lead mines in Missouri (according to Doe Run filings with the SEC). Since 1998 most Renco financings have been bank debt.

WCI Steel

In 1988, Renco bought a Warren (Ohio) steel company from its bankrupt parent, LTV Steel Co., for a price tag of $140 million. This company then became WCI Steel Inc., and Rennert was able to ultimately sell bonds totaling $300 million, paying $108 million of the proceeds as a dividend to Renco.] In 1998, Renco Steel Holdings Inc. was created to serve as a holding company for WCI. The holding company then sold $120 million in junk bonds, this time paying an additional $100 million dividend to Renco.

At the time of the bankruptcy, if the pension plan had been terminated, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation calculated a $117 million shortfall. Despite losing the company, Renco agreed to assume responsibility for the existing pension plan, with ongoing support from WCI. Newspaper reports speculated that the Pension Benefit

Guaranty Corporation had threatening to put a lien on Rennert’s personal estate in order to ensure the steelworkers’ benefits. Harbinger sold the business to Severstal, a steelmaker based in Russia.

Z200 MagCorp Sign

MagCorp/US Magnesium – More junk bond financing and pollution

In 1989, Renco acquired the U.S.’s largest magnesium producer in Utah. Removing minerals from the water of the Great Salt Lake, Magnesium Corp. uses chemicals to refine the magnesium used in products ranging from bombs to bicycles. In 1996, Renco established Renco Metals, Inc. as a holding company for Magnesium Corp. and issued $150 million in bonds. Just like WCI, the company paid Renco $90 million in dividends by the year end.

In 2001, the Department of Justice filed suit against Magnesium Corp. for multiple violations of hazardous waste law, and also it cited Rennert’s removal of money from Magnesium Corp. through the bond issue, “leaving the companies insolvent and unable to pay their bills”. The suit went on until 2007, when the judge ruled in favour of Renco and against the DOJ.

On August 17, 2010, a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling overturned a District Court judge’s October 17, 2007, decision that the U.S. Magnesium facility in Rowley, Utah was not illegally disposing five wastes. The initial lawsuit DOJ filed on behalf of EPA in 2001 claimed U.S. Magnesium was not following regulations promulgated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, which dictates how waste by-products must be disposed. Renco continues to operate the business under the name US Magnesium. At this point, US Magnesium is the only magnesium producer in the United States.

The Run Doe Company Pollution


Rennert’s Renco owns a subsidiary company called The Doe Run Company. They are the largest integrated lead producer in the Western Hemisphere. Based in St. Louis, the company’s Missouri operations included a primary lead smelter that poisoned the town of Herculaneum, Missouri.

For decades some of the most highly toxic heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium and especially lead slowly rained down and settled as a fine dust on a community in Missouri called Herculaneum. When asked about the possible danger of the fine dust the town’s mining smelter representatives assured local residents that there was “nothing to worry about”. Unfortunately for the well-being of the population of Herculaneum, MI the representatives were lying. Taking into consideration the smelter owner’s reputation the deception should have been no surprise.

Speaking of the environmental disaster, whistle-blower Jack Warren had this to say about what Doe Run had done and what he thought of Ira Rennert.

“It’s criminal! It’s inhumane what he’s done. It’s a travesty I think it just boils straight down to greed.”

Speaking about the lack of justice for Rennert’s crimes, he continued “How can you protect your child from something that you can’t see? You don’t know it’s there. You’re battling a ghost. If I fed my son poison every day and any health agency knew that I was purposely feeding my child poison every day they’d removed that child and lock me up. Yet they let Doe Run run their monster (smelter) That is putting poison into my child every day and (they) did nothing. They never locked anybody up. They never stopped them. They’re still doing it in this day and age in this country!”

Leslie and Jack Warden lived your typical American life – working hard raising their son then one day everything changed when they realised they lived in a home permeated by a hidden poison a poison that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

Speaking of Ira Rennert, Mrs Warden said “It’s appalling that someone in the United States can acquire so much wealth on the backs of communities and children. He’s made his money poisoning children.”

The Doe Run Company was acquired in 1994 by American billionaire Ira Rennert, who has such a long track record of environmental abuses that the EPA labelled him America’s worst private polluter. His usual tactics of misinformation and stalling worked for years until he was finally forced to buy out an entire neighbourhood and bulldoze it into the ground because the contamination was so extreme.

Doe Run operations in La Oroya, Peru

Doe Run held in its hands about 4,000 jobs in the city of La Oroyo that at the time had population of around 33,000. Doe Run operated as a major political actor. Stronger than the city government, stronger than the national government as the Peruvian government is politically vulnerable to job losses and lost investment. That includes the jobs and investment that came from Doe Run. Peru’s economy at the time was weakened from a long history of political violence and corruption.

The corrupt Peruvian government sold off their nationally owned smelter in La Oroya to Doe Run in 1997 with an agreement that Doe Run would significantly reduce the levels of pollution emitted by the site in a 10 year period. Needless to say, little change in the levels of pollution was made. In the 10th year of the deal after the Blacksmith Institute published their list of top ten polluted place, that contained La Oroya, Rennert split the La Oroya operation off from Doe Run. Rennert did this because he saw another potential costly environmental scandal on his hands. So Run Doe Peru was set up.

Ira Rennert’s business strategy is to load up Run Doe Peru with junk bond debt and then have them pay huge dividends the Renco Group, syphoning capital out and leaving the subsidiary in danger of insolvency and unable to clean up the toxic pollution that they produce. This is the same tactic used by Rennert to finance acquisitions for Renco to begin with.

After failed negotiations with the Peruvian government they filed for bankruptcy and has since been liquidated. The Peruvian authorities demanded clean-up costs within the context of bankruptcy negotiations. In the face of this action, Renco (the parent company of Run Doe Peru), has retaliated, and sued Peru before an international investment tribunal that has been convened under the terms of the U.S.-Peru free trade agreement.  Renco is seeking $800 million in damages for the cost of complying with Peru’s environmental and mining laws. The company is also demanding that the international tribunal issue a declaration that Peru, not Renco, is exclusively liable for personal injury claims in a case filed on behalf of children from La Oroya. Again doing whatever they can to avoid taking any responsibility for their actions.


Ira Rennert’s man made gas chamber

A witness recalls memories of the pollution approaching the city of La Oroya “You smell it, you breathe it. You start coughing, your eyes water.”

2 million pounds of contamination were spewing out of those chimney stacks every single day. The contamination billowed out and fell like rain contaminating every square inch of the city. Leaving the place constantly excessively exposed to lead. The poisonous gas became trapped between narrow canyon walls creating a huge gas chamber, literally a man-made gas chamber. That resulted in over 99% of the city’s 12,000 children having lead levels many times greater than US standards. The people face the risk of developing cancer as the rates are 2,000 times above the normal rate. Children are at greatest risk because their developing brains are easily damaged by lead exposure.

The longer the time children live in La Oroya the lower their IQ score drops compared to the average. A teenage boy named Moises describes the effects on his health;

“I have stomach aches, my bones hurt. It also affects my memory. I study very hard for my exams and sometimes during my exams; I forget everything that I studied.”

Lead poisoning expert Dr. John F. Rosen states “The adverse effects of lead which produce brain damage are permanent and irreversible. There’s no recovery. You can’t see the symptoms of lead. Many people call it the invisible killer because it affects internal organs that affect behaviours in ways that you might not notice. It’s only when a child is severely contaminated and the impacts are irreversible that the parent begins to notice.”

Of the situation in La Oroya, he continues “The whole environment is contaminated. It’s on the toys… it’s on skin it’s on clothes… it’s like being totally surrounded by smoke. It’s impossible to escape from.”


Rennert’s misinformation campaign.

Ira Rennert spent millions on misinformation and denial claiming the children’s lead and heavy metal poisoning weren’t from his smelter but from bad hygiene, lead painted toys or car exhaust fumes. The local people were told that if they just washed their hands and wiped down their window sills each day they were doing all that they needed to do to protect their children’s health.

The Centers for Disease Control did a comprehensive study of La Oroya and they showed that all the hand-washing and street sweeping in the world wasn’t going to clean up the city. What was needed at the very least was a drastic reduction in emission and that was exactly the deal Ira Rennert agreed to when he bought the smelter from the Peruvian government in 1997 for a bargain-basement price on the condition he invest his profits to dramatically reduce the pollution. 32 other foreign mining corporations made similar agreements with the government. Only Ira Rennert asked for delays to comply with his agreement claiming the lack of profits from the operation limited his ability to reduce pollution levels.

Built luxury mansion and estate with syphoned money


The best business school in Peru did a major study that showed that had Doe Run Peru sent $96 million dollars back to their owner. They could have completed the requirements of their environmental compliance agreement easily. Instead of reducing and cleaning up the population made by the smelter with the profits as promised, IRA Rennert secretly syphoned off almost $100 million to build one of the most expensive mansions in the world with 29 bedrooms and 39 bathrooms at a cost of $186 million.


Rennert’s mansion created a controversy even in an exclusive New York community because of its obscene size and decadence complete with gold leaf inlays and bowling alley. It would normally go beyond the comprehension on people that somebody would engage is such destructive behaviour to selfishly acquire so much wealth. That is until you understand the mind-set of these psychopathic elitist Zionist Jews. Our failure to stop people like Rennert from carrying out their destructive actions only increases their power, influence and ability to continue behaving in this fashion.

Jewish focused philanthropy

Rennert is a big supporter of Jewish causes using his ill gotten gains through the ILR Ruth Foundation. He is best known for funding Orthodox Jewish causes. Rennert has also given generously to scholarship, religious and construction projects in Israel including giving $25.4 million amount to Jewish settlers in Jerusalem’s Arab district. Rennert has also esteablished and funded educational centers in Israel at Yeshiva University and Bar Ilan University.

Rennert has also helped pay for the restoration of Jerusalem’s Western Heritage Wall, and contributed $5 million to the creation and publication of a 20-volume encyclopedia of the Jewish commandments. He has also provided 150 Torah scrolls to Israeli communities.

Other noteworthy contributions include a $5 million donation to launch the Wiesel Center at Boston University.


Ira Rennert has purposely pursued a mission to bring misery and pain in many forms throughout his life. Whether it be financial and economic, environmental and ecological, health and well-being. The repeated crimes shows a man without empathy or remorse. This is backed up by his failure to accept responsibility for his actions and willingly help, compensate or show concern for people he has hurt.

Taking this into consideration with the fact that none of his “philanthropic” work has gone to help the children of Peru or the people of Herculaneum, MO, but has been solely focused on Israel, raises the question; Is Ira Rennert a Jewish supremacist? The evidence here strongly indicates that he is.

I don’t believe Ira sees the Peruvian people, or even his fellow countrymen in Herculaneum as fellow human beings. He certainly hasn’t treating them as fellow human beings. The families association with and fund of anti-Muslim propagandists leaves little imagination of what he thinks about Muslims.

The road to Zion has been paved in blood and the “goyim” are just stepping stones in the eyes of Ira Rennet.

His hardcore Zionist and pro-Likud associations have been a driving factor in the sorry tale of his life. This is a classic case of the devastating effect the Jewish supremacist mind-set and this Zionist cabal can have on the unwitting “goyim”.

Shillman Fellow Hasbara Campaign On Trump – Cambridge Analytica Exposed

I’ve recently discovered a campaign being run by the pro-Israel pro-Trump shills in alternative media to disassociate the election campaign of Donald Trump and Cambridge Analytica. The article that first caught my attention was by Daniel Greenfield of FrontPage Magazine. The source “Shillman Fellow” Daniel Greenfield is references in his article is a CBS article by Major Elliot Garrett. I guess it’s okay to reference “fake news” from “fake news” outlets if it fits your agenda.

A look into Major Elliott Garrett’s background reveals several connections to powerful people that are part of the network that I continue to expose. Garrett was employed by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News for a eight year period. His articles have also been published in The Weekly Standard which is owned by the powerful Philip Anschutz. Anschutz Foundation is donor to right wing organisations such as Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.

The above image is taken from the Center for Security Policy’s 2013 Schedule B that you can view here.

Frank Gaffney and David Horowitz worked together on the book entitled The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration.

“Shillman Fellow” gets it’s name from Robert Shillman who sits on the board of the David Horwitz Freedom Center and also funds David Horowitz’s Frontpage magazine that Greenfield works for. So this whole moniker of “Shillman Fellow” which Daniel Greenfield, Laura Loomer and Tommy Robinson use is a meaningless farce bestowed on sellout frauds in a sad attempt to give them some journalistic credibility. The “Shillman Fellows” are “fake news” journalists that are funded to push forward the agenda of their paymasters and run hasbara to counter information that is causing damage to this network. The Daniel Greenfield is a classic case of just that.

This is the quote Greenfield uses in an effort to discredit the connection between Cambridge Analytica and the Trump Campaign.

In late September 2016, Cambridge and other data vendors were submitting bids to the Trump campaign. Then-candidate Trump’s campaign used Cambridge Analytica during the primaries and in the summer because it was never certain the Republican National Committee would be a willing, cooperative partner. Cambridge Analytica instead was a hedge against the RNC, in case it wouldn’t share its data.
The crucial decision was made in late September or early October when Mr. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Brad Parscale, Mr. Trump’s digital guru on the 2016 campaign, decided to utilise just the RNC data for the general election and used nothing from that point from Cambridge Analytica or any other data vendor. The Trump campaign had tested the RNC data, and it proved to be vastly more accurate than Cambridge Analytica’s, and when it was clear the RNC would be a willing partner, Mr. Trump’s campaign was able to rely solely on the RNC.

This quote from Garrett’s CBS News article is complete disinformation and is purposely playing on peoples lack of knowledge about how Cambridge Analytica works and it’s deep connections to the Trump campaign for many reasons which I will delve into deeper further.

Channel 4’s Cambridge Analytica Video

In the above video after the 4:40 mark Channel 4 reports that Cambridge Analytica was paid $5 million by the Trump Presidential Campaign “in September 2016 alone.”

Alexander Nix the suspended CEO of Cambridge Analytica is featured in the video explaining how CA used psychoanalysis using big data including data from the primaries to target individual voters or potential voters in the Presidential Election. This proves without doubt that the Trump campaign were using Cambridge Analytica after the primaries. Alexander Nix is also quoted in a interview with Motherboard stating “Pretty much every message that Trump put out was data-driven.”

Jack Posobiec

The video also features Trump campaigner Jack Posobiec talking about how big data through the application on his phone is helping him target individuals. Posobiec is a part of this entire network. He is a regular guest and host on the Alex Jones’ Infowars. He previously worked for Rebel Media which is funded by Robert Shillman much like FrontPage Magazine that Daniel Greenfield works for. Amazingly, after this appearance on TV in this Channel 4 report Posobiec is now denying that the Trump Presidential campaign worked with CA during the election. Repeating the exact same narrative as Daniel Greenfield. This is just unbelievable.

Trump Campaign payments to Cambridge Analytica

Above is a screenshot taken from the Federal Election Commission website showing the payments made by the Trump campaign to Cambridge Analytica.The final payment in December 2016 for $312,500 is second only to the campaign’s $5 million payment on Sept. 1, 2016. All the payments are made after the Republican primaries and after Donald Trump got the GOP’s nomination on July 18.

Thou the filings only show when the firm was paid, not when it provided its services. However, the video above clearly shows Cambridge Analytica working for the Trump campaign in the Presidential Election. This is further backed up by former Cambridge Analytica staffer Matt Oczkowski and Brad Parscale who described for Wired magazine the work the firm did in the final months of the campaign.
Oczkowski told Wired, “The RNC was the voter file of record for the campaign, but we were the intelligence on top of the voter file.”

“Matt Oczkowski and his team created a daily tracker of polling, so that I could see how Trump was doing in key swing states,” Parscale said. “They provided that to me daily.”
Plus, Parscale said Cambridge Analytica helped with “persuasion online media buying,” and “they created a visualization tool that showed in each state which areas were most persuadable and what those voters care about.”

It bears noting that while the Trump campaign didn’t rely on Cambridge Analytica’s voter data for core voter outreach, the firm stayed busy attacking Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton and employed other tactics to target undecided and swing voters.

In the final months of the election, the firm was paid about $850,000 by the Make America Number 1 Super PAC. The group’s self-declared aim was “to make clear to the American voter the full extent of the untrustworthiness of Hillary Rodham Clinton by focusing on the corruption of the Clinton Machine and especially the corruption of the Clinton Foundation.”

Despite these facts the self proclaimed “journalist” Daniel Greenfield claims “Trump didn’t even use the Cambridge data. This is a typical fake news scandal.”

The Real Making of the President: Cambridge Analytica

I put together the video below and published it on the April 26 2017. The video gets into further details on the role Cambridge Analytica played in the election campaign. It details the deep connections to the network that I have been exposing including a big player behind Trump, Robert Mercer a mathematics genius of Renaissance Technologies that incorporates sophisticated algorithms with hedge funds. Mercer is connected to both the Make America Number 1 Super PAC and John Bolton SuperPAC, Breitbart News and the Council for National Policy.


IDC Herzliya: A Institutional Cornerstone In Building A High Tech Superpower

The summer of 1994 marked the opening of a unique academic institution on the site of a former Israeli Air Force base and Anti-aircraft warfare school six miles north of Tel Aviv. Herzliya, which is named after the seminal Zionist intellectual Theodor Herzl, is home to Israel’s largest high tech industrial park which housed companies such as Compaq, Motorola, National Semiconductors, and Sun Microsystems. Apple, Microsoft and IBM are all headquartered in Herzliya. It was here where the first private university in Israel was founded. The founders left tenured positions in leading U.S. and Israeli universities intending to change the academic agenda of the country. Many academics from the US universities financed by wealthy Jewish donors decided to leave the country that provided the infrastructure and gave them the support, training and opportunities to attain their positions and achievements to focus on building the foundational infrastructure of the Zionist state of Israel that we see today.

These same academics do however to this day rely heavily on US based Jewish donors and they still exploit their connections to US Universities. IDC Herzliya closely cooperates with leading universities in the United States such as the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, University of California, Berkeley and Harvard University where founding academics of IDC Herzliya. These relationships have been vitally important for the Raphael Recanati International School’s (part of IDC Herzliya) Operation Protective Edge that is actively trying to stifle the well meaning efforts of the BDS movement.

According to Jonathan Neff RRIS’s Operation Protective Edge produces pro-Israel material in 31 different languages and the material is disseminated across the listed US university campuses by pro-Israel advocates in efforts to combat the BDS movement. The university literally engages in counter intelligence operations and propaganda warfare for the benefit of Israel inside the United States.

You will also be delighted to know that due to the heavy financing by wealthy International Jewish donors to build up and fund grants for the university the students tuition fees at IDC Herzliya are significantly lower than tuition fees of colleges and universities of a similar stature in the United States. This is a result largely due to the impact wealthy Jewish donors that take money out of the economy in which they make the majority of their money tax free through 501(c) foundations and investing it in Israel. That alone is a great argument for the BDS movement.

A key reason for the founding of IDC Herzliya was for it to be the leading Israeli academic institution for students who serve in the IDF. The idea was to take military personnel and provide them with the skills to further facilitate the IDF in a higher capacity (For instance; in their exception counter terrorism programs) or for them to move into the high technology sector in which Herzliya is a hub. Cyber-security and cyber-defence are big emerging economy that are benefiting from the programs offered at IDC. The university also provide  students with connections to thriving start-up companies and start up incubators.

IDC Herzliya offers one of world’s most exceptional programs in political science, with specialisation in diplomacy and counter-terrorism. The institute for counter-terrorism is one of the leading academic institutes for counter-terrorism in the world. IDC Herzliya is placed alongside the world’s leading universities.

The university has another important relationship with the IDF being the first academic institution to recognise active reserve service as equivalent to academic credits. In addition, IDC students who serve in the reserve forces enjoy significant assistance during their studies.


American Friends of the IDC

According to accounts filed with the IRS, the Foundation received a total of $28,999,497 between 1998 and 2006 in ‘gifts, grants and contributions’. The size of these donations increased substantially during that period, from $989,333 in 1999 to $10,296,706 in 2006. US Foundations known to have donated to American Friends of IDC include:

  • Seth Klarman’s The Klarman Family Foundation – The Klarman Family Foundation funds pro-Israel and anti-Muslim causes. Klarman is a major player in Israeli media. He is co-owner and chairman of Times of Israel, a top newspaper and online news website. The control of the press and censoring of any criticism of Israel seems to be a major goal of Klarman. Through his foundation he funds several watchdogs and pressure groups that watch over media outlets to control their content and made sure they push a pro-Israel narrative and censor Israel and its criminal behaviour. That is one of the major reasons you do not read this kind of content within the mainstream media. Some of the names of these groups are the Anti-Defamation League, CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) and Honest Reporting. Relating to the anti-BDS movement on university campuses. Klarman funds a group called Israel on Campus Coalition which actively use pro-Israel propaganda to influence students in an effort to stifle the efforts of the BDS movement.

(You can watch a video I creating exposing Seth Klarman and The Klarman Family Foundation here), 

  • Russell Berrie’s Russell Berrie Foundation which is another huge donor of Jewish and Zionist causes under the guise of philanthropy. Though the foundation does do legitimate philanthropy it is mostly done as PR and used as a cover for moving assets tax free to Israel to build up the Israeli infrastructure. The Russell Berrie Foundation  Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute, established in January 2005 as a joint endeavour of the Russell Berrie Foundation, the government of Israel and the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. It is one of the largest academic programs in Israel and is among the largest nanotechnology centres in the world.
  • Nina Rosenwald’s Abstraction Fund. Rosenwald is one of the biggest donor of anti-Muslim pro-Israel groups and is a key component to the Zionist network worldwide.
  • Ronald Lauder (Estee Lauder’s son) has funded the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy at the IDC Herzliya. Not only is Lauder a billionaire heir to the Estee Lauder empire. He is also a good friend of Donald Trump.
  • Sheldon Adelson’s Adelson Family Foundation donated $2.5 million to the American Friends of IDC in 2013, with a further $17.5 million approved for disbursal during the year.

 Ronald Lauder Yoram (Jerry) Wind connections

The Lauder Institute was founded in 1983 at the University of Pennsylvania by Leonard A. Lauder and Ronald S. Lauder in memory of their father, Joseph H. Lauder. Yoram (Jerry) Wind was the founding director of Lauder Institute from it’s founding in 1983 to1988. Wind co-founded IDC in 1994 and the American Friends of IDC in 1998 and served as its President until 2002. He played a major part in defining its vision, objectives and philosophy and played a great part in developing the IDC Herzliya Friends Association in the USA. Wind also chaired the promotion and appointment committee at IDC for the first 13 years and has since chaired the higher academic committee. He also established exchange programs with the Wharton School where he teaches. 

Wind is also the founding academic director of The Wharton Fellows Program (2000), a powerful global network of CEOs and senior executives who are committed to lifelong learning focused on transformational leadership. He is the founding director the Wharton Future of Advertising Program (2008), whose mission is to act as a catalyst for deeper insights, bolder innovation, and broader positive impact of advertising.

Wharton-IDC Global Consulting Practicum

The Wharton Global Consulting Practicum (GCP) is a cross functional course given within the curriculum of the IDC and Wharton M.B.A. program. This program provides IDC with the best MBA program in Israel. Students participating in the program form multinational teams that are guided by experienced strategy consultants and industry experts. Each team is assigned to a company where they conduct market research and formulate a concrete business strategy. Students to learn how to apply concepts and ideas from the classroom to the real world. This provides students with valuable work experience and connections to organisations providing them with an advantage over other students involved involved in the same field. 

This is a strategy I’ve increasingly noticed. Programs such as this are helping to monopolise job opportunities for graduates. Not only have we seen high tech corporations shift toward Israel. We are seeing an ever increasing shift in graduates from Israeli universities into positions in the business sector, not only in Israel but in the Boston Corridor and Silicon Valley. It’s programs like these that make it possible. Wind has been instrumental in this transition. His vision to drive this change through networking has played a major role. That is one of the reasons why Wind Avenue on IDC’s campus is named after Yoram Wind.

Stand With Us

IDC has been involved in propaganda operations (or ‘hasbara’ as it is known in Israel) in support of Israeli attacks on Palestinians. Particularly notable in this regard are the Asper Institute for New Media Diplomacy, which operates within the framework of the Sammy Ofer School of Communications, and the Ambassadors Club founded in the framework of the Raphael Recanati International School. 

The US pro-Israeli advocacy group Stand With Us has provided support for a number of propaganda operations at IDC. In addition to sponsoring and running the Ambassadors Club bi-monthly seminars, it has supported and sponsored the student initiated group, “Bursting the Bubble,” set up to publicise Qassam rockets fired into Israel. It also created a Situation Room (held in the Yellow-Room/Aquarium) which monitored media coverage during the Israeli assault on Gaza during December 2006 and January 2007. Stand With Us also sponsored, a pro-Israel social networking campaign launched at the IDC Herzliya during the Israeli offensive in Gaza in 2009.

In January 2015, Israeli media website The Seventh Eye reported that the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is to pay StandWithUs (SWU) $254,000 in matching funds ‘for a year-long program to disseminate hasbara,

Finally, it sponsors 20 IDC students every year under the Stand With Us Fellowship Programme.


The biggest donors to StandWithUs since 2005, according to a search of publicly available tax returns, were foundations controlled by Susan Wexner, who has contributed more than $850,000 to the group. Susan Wexner is the wife of Leslie Wexner the money man behind convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Another donor is Nina Rosenwald making past donations through her Abstration Fund.

International Institute for Counter-Terrorism and World Summit on Terrorism

 The International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism is an Israeli institute which is based at the IDC Herzliya. The Centre was founded in 1996, and describes itself as ‘the leading academic institute for counter-terrorism in the world, facilitating international cooperation in the global struggle against terrorism.’ It also claims to be ‘an independent think tank providing expertise in terrorism, counter-terrorism, homeland security, threat vulnerability and risk assessment, intelligence analysis and national security and defense policy

The Center runs the World Summit on Counter-Terrorism which has at past events been sponsored by the ADL. One of the keynote speakers of the 2016 summit was Michael Chertoff.

Concluding thoughts

IDC Herzliya is a very important institution that will continue to grow and develop into a leading university in the world. Not only does IDC play an intricate role in networking and connecting major Israeli institutions, it is also shaping the future of the country and the world through its think tanks, conferences and summits. Its students will play a leading role in the continued direction of building Israel into a dominant high tech superpower.


A look at the pathetic Ted Malloch

by Jon Swinn of

For those of you who aren’t aware Ted Malloch, an Infowars contributor was detained by the FBI, questioned and subpeonaed to testify as part of the Mueller investigation.

Below is a quote I found that explains why Malloch was detained for questioning by the FBI.

“Fusion GPS cofounder Glenn Simpson described Malloch last year as a “Bannon Stone associate” and said he believed Malloch was a “significant figure” in the Trump-WikiLeaks connection.”

Do I believe Malloch has anything to worry about in regards to the Mueller investigation?

No, I do not. The FBI is following up on the statements made by Simpson. The FBI took the opportunity to meet Malloch at Logan airport as that was the quickest opportunity to question Malloch. There really isn’t anything else to the situation.

Now, I didn’t really want to do this but someone has to do it. I know no one else is going to let you know this information about Ted Malloch. Jerome Corsi and Alex Jones certainly aren’t going to.

Over the Easter weekend I was sent a link to a video by an unnamed Australian fugitive. The video is titled ‘BREAKING! JEROME CORSI, FBI Detains Infowars Contributor Ted Malloch – ALEX JONES INFOWARS’:

As hard as it is for me to sit through and listen to this torturous tripe, I survived! Maybe I’m just a glutton for punishment.

After a great deal of whining and crying from serial disseminator of disinfo, Jerome Corsi (in between the constant interruptions from the chief infowarrior, Alex Jones), didn’t admit that he receives intelligence from top Israeli intelligence agents on this video (that was a previous interview that you can watch here). Anyway, some words spoken from the mouth of Dr. Corsi caught my attention. He said these words in such a way it sounded like a desperate plea to buy his lies.

“Ted Malloch has no connection to anything.” – Jerome Corsi.

This obviously prompted me to look into Mr. Malloch and amazingly I found some very interesting connections back to the same network I’ve previously highlighted. The picture Jones and Corsi painted of Mr. Malloch being a stand up man of integrity and a honest patriot faded rapidly.

Malloch is connected to Nina Rosenwald’s Hudson Institute as he served as an adviser there. He also was an adviser to the American Foreign Policy Council, a neoconservative think tank that links to important figures in this network such as James Woosley.

Another huge donor to this network is the Templeton Foundation. It has several different names. Malloch was a board member of the organisation. The funding of one of his enterprises within the foundation was Yale’s “Spiritual Capital Initiative”. You can read a detailed critique of the initiative here.

The John Templeton Foundation aims to advance human well-being by supporting research on the Big Questions, and by promoting character development, individual freedom, and free markets. The Foundation takes its vision from its founding benefactor, the late Sir John Templeton, who sought to stimulate what he described as “spiritual progress.”

Despite the rather positive mission statement, beneath the surface we find some worrying things. Templeton Foundation donates to such infamous loving causes (excuse the sarcasm) as conspiracy theory peddler Frank Gaffney’s CSP, Nina Rosenwald’s Hudson Institute, Cato Institute and Aspen Institute. The foundation has been involved in funding quackery projects promoting intelligent design.

The Templeton Foundation seems to be the link between Malloch and Aspen Institute. Yet, Malloch doesn’t mention this connection in his work and interviews as that would work against the narrative of labelling Aspen as “globalist” when in fact they are connected right back to the Zionist power structure that he works for.

I was informed by a very helpful gentleman, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel (of The Antedote Podcast), that the Aspen Institute has a track record of giving a platform to false opposition operatives to create and control narratives. One being Deray McKesson who has been promoted as the ‘voice of Black Lives Matter’ through Aspen Institute. That is what Malloch is operating as now, a false opposition operative pushing the narratives (“deep state” and “globalism”) and furthering the agenda of this network.

Another disturbing connection to the Aspen Institute is the Crown family of Chicago, who are linked to serious historical criminals such as mob figures and Bernie Madoff and major events in US history such as the assassinations of JFK, RFK and 9/11. You can read more about them here.

Aspen Institute play a big role in narrative building in the political arena in the US. In recent times, they have really been helpful in bolstering this “globalist” and “deep state” narrative used by the pro-Trump shills in alternative and mainstream media with former CIA Director under Obama, John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, acting as anti-Trump talking heads at Aspen Institute’s Aspen Security Forum. I’ll be exposing that in more detail in the future.

For now I want to get back to Malloch. Last year Malloch spoke at a Henry Jackson Society event.

Malloch speaking at Henry Jackson Society

The HJS is funded by Rosenwald through Abstraction fund via American friends of Henry Jackson Society (see this).

Henry Jackson Initiative origins link to Rothschild’s and Nina Rosenwald’s Hudson Institute

In 2011, the Henry Jackson Society undertook a project on 21st Century capitalism initially titled, ‘Better Markets, Better Values’. An October 2011 report to the City of London’s Policy and Resources Committee by the City’s director of public relations recommended a grant of £25,000 towards a total project cost of £100,000, funded from the Committee‟s Policy Initiatives Fund 2011/12. According to this report, the project had already confirmed financial support from McKinsey, with further interest from KPMG and Clifford Chance. The report stated:

“The project will be led by a high level working group whose co-chairs will be Lady de Rothschild, CEO of EL Rothschild and Domic Barton, Global Managing Director of McKinsey. Other members include the former Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Lord (John) Hutton (not to be confused with Lord (Brian) Hutton of the Hutton Inquiry), Monetary Policy Committee Member Adam Posen, Director of the Hudson Institute Irwin Stelzer and former Editor in Chief of the Wall Street Journal Europe Baron Wheatcroft.”

This task force published its report, ‘Towards a More Inclusive Capitalism,’ in May 2012 in London at the same time that the Henry Jackson Initiative was formally established to continue its work.

A brief look into Fusion GPS’s Glen Simpson’s statements

“Simpson then mentioned Malloch, whom he described as a “Bannon Stone associate” tied to UKIP and who Simpson believed was “a significant figure in this.”

Farage spearheaded the Brexit campaign, and he and Malloch share an ideological platform. The two men have met frequently — Malloch has appeared on Farage’s radio show multiple times, and they were also spotted together in Brussels, according to The Guardian.”

Let’s take a look at this statement in more detail. In light of the information I’ve uncovered, is there a real connection between Malloch and Bannon? If there is any connection, it’s clearly through what I call the Rosenwald-Gaffney network. It does link to the highest echelons of Zionist control as highlighted with the Rothschild connection to the Henry Jackson Initiative and my previous work that connects members of this network to Mega.

One connection between Breitbart and Malloch comes through Raheem Kassam. Kassam is Chief Editor for Breitbart London. He has promoted Malloch on his social media and has conducted interviews with Malloch for Breitbart.

The relationship looks to be reason the Malloch became a writer for Breitbart between February – September 2017.

It is likely the two were put in contact through this network. It is important to note that Kassam was the director of HJS funded Student Rights from its creation until March 2014, combining the role with jobs at the Henry Jackson Society including Marketing Director (September 2010 – July 2012), Communications Director (July 2012 – April 2013) and an Associate Fellow (April 2013 – September 2014). He is now a senior adviser to Nigel Farage and UKIP. Kassam is very close to Farage. Here is a picture of the two campaigning for UKIP.

Here are the two of them with other UKIP brass and Donald Trump.

It seems to me the Malloch is just a false opposition talking head working as a mouthpiece to push the narratives and agenda to this network. He isn’t a significant link at all. As I’ve detailed previously, the Bannon connection to Trump is through the Mercer – Bolton – CNP. These people are much more significant. Roger Stone is also well connected to Breitbart and has known Trump for decades. Neither man needs Malloch to connect to Farage.

Simpson’s statements seem purposely misleading or poorly researched. I believe that is by design for multiple reasons, and I plan on delving into in the near future.

Malloch also does not seem to have any significant direct connection to Donald Trump. Malloch’s claims that he was to become Trump’s EU Ambassador seem to be just that, claims. It seems another title Malloch bestowed upon himself to somehow lend credibility, elevate and portray himself as someone who is way more important than he actually is. Simpson may have bought into this lie but again. It’s either sloppy research or conveniently misleading by Simpson.

What compounds my suspicions is the fact that this isn’t the first time Malloch has bestowed titles and embellished his credentials and CV. He has a long history of doing exactly that.

The FT has identified a number of potentially misleading claims made in Mr. Malloch’s autobiography, Davos, Aspen & Yale, and in an online CV. Disputed claims:

  • That he held an “ambassadorial level” role at the UN in Geneva, from which he “helped bring down the Soviet Union”. UN and US officials have said the role was not ambassadorial level.
  • That Margaret Thatcher called him “a genius” and a “global sherpa” live on CNN in 1992. After video evidence contradicted his claim, he said the comment was made off-camera. A friend of Mr. Malloch’s has told the FT he remembers hearing Thatcher use the “global sherpa” phrase of Mr Malloch.
  • That he was “made a laird” by the Lord Lyon. The Lord Lyon does not have the power to create lairds. Mr. Malloch told the FT that he had a scroll showing his position as laird.
  • That his documentary Doing Virtuous Business was nominated for an Emmy award. The production company said it was submitted for a regional Emmy, but not nominated. A previous documentary was nominated.
  • That he completed his “entire doctoral programme in an unprecedented less than three years”. Mr. Malloch now says this did not include finishing his thesis.
  • That he wrote for The New York Times and the Washington Post. No record could be found of him having done so. Mr. Malloch declined to provide a list of articles.
  • That he is “chairman and CEO” of Global Fiduciary Governance LLC and the Roosevelt Group. Neither company has its own website or any listed employees on LinkedIn, suggesting they are less grand than Mr. Malloch’s use of the titles implies.
  • That he was a fellow at Wolfson and Pembroke colleges, Oxford. Both institutions deny such an affiliation. Mr. Malloch rejects this.
  • That he was a “professor” at Saïd Business School, Oxford. In fact he was a senior fellow on a short-term appointment. Mr. Malloch told the FT he was a professor at Yale and Blackfriars Hall, Oxford.
  • That he was the “first” to use the phrase thought leadership, a phrase that dates back to the 19th century. Contacted by the FT, Mr. Malloch repeated the claim.

Ted Malloch’s lies about assets to swindle two banks in bankruptcy case

The Financial Times also obtained bankruptcy court records revealing that a US court had found that Malloch had overstated his assets on loan applications with the intent to deceive the banks into making multi-million dollar loans. The couple had claimed assets of £36.3 million when applying for the loans, but claimed that they had just $152,000 at the time of their 2013 bankruptcy petition and were unable to repay $5.9 million in outstanding debt.

“Ted Malloch, a professor at Henley Business School made false statements to deceive two US banks into giving him multimillion-dollar loans, according to court documents.”

More lies and deception using consultancy business, Roosevelt Group

Roosevelt Group is the consultancy business that Mr. Malloch set up and of which he calls himself “Chairman and CEO.” According to One Bank’s claim, Mr. Malloch stated that the Roosevelt Group was worth $10m in 2009, citing a valuation by “Zeron Group Investment Banks.” But court documents reveal tax information for the Roosevelt Group showed “net losses,” and in 2012 Mr. Malloch and his wife recorded revenue of only $24,000 from the company. By 2014, the Roosevelt Group was “defunct,” One Bank said. The Mallochs’ own bankruptcy filing listed their ownership of the company as worth nothing. Mr. Malloch claims, “The Roosevelt Group was dormant for a number of years but remains a small consulting company.” He said his net wealth had been affected by an insurance trust that “itself was misrepresented” and “which collapsed in the financial crisis of 2007-2008.” This conflicts with the bank’s claims, which state that the Mallochs had listed their ownership interest in the Roosevelt Group and other companies as their biggest assets.

The couple initially denied One Bank’s claims about their net worth, before withdrawing their responses to the claims. Under US law, bankrupt persons are still liable for certain debts if they obtained them by making materially false statements. For the Mallochs, the story and the false claims did not end with the default judgments. The couple had told lawyers for their bankruptcy estate that they did not own their home in Connecticut. But the lawyers found that the property was owned by the Spiritual Enterprise Institute, a non-profit organisation devoted to researching the role of spirituality in economic development, of which Mr. Malloch was chairman. The Spiritual Enterprise Institute sold the house for $547,000 and, according to court records, the net proceeds were wired to a German bank account of which “Theodore Malloch Jr. Spiritual Enterprise Institute” was the beneficiary.

Lawyers for the Mallochs’ bankruptcy estate obtained a court order requiring the couple to provide information relating to the money. Mr. Malloch said he had given some of it to his wife, and $183,000 as a “gift” to the Global Ethic Institute in Tübingen, Germany, where he was a researcher. But the creditors found his testimony “at a minimum, inaccurate, illogical and evasive.” They told the court they were unable to trace the proceeds from the Connecticut home sale. News of the German connection was first reported by Der Spiegel.

Eventually, the Mallochs offered to settle the property dispute by paying $75,000 in cash to their bankruptcy estate. The trustee for the bankruptcy estate told a Connecticut district court that would be acceptable, partly because, after declaring bankruptcy, the Mallochs had moved “outside of the United States, making collection efforts difficult”. The district court approved the settlement in November 2016, although this only related to claims on the Connecticut property and did not discharge other outstanding claims.

At the time, Mr. Malloch was becoming a regular pro-Trump voice in British media. He has since appeared on the BBC, Bloomberg Television and Russian channel, RT. Mr. Kopsick, lawyer for One Bank & Trust, said the bank continued to have the right to enforce a claim of about $3m against the Mallochs.

Can’t even get the backstory of his name straight

Malloch’s credibility among rightwing Americans has been helped by an unusual claim – that he is a descendant of President Theodore Roosevelt. “My parents christened me Theodore Roosevelt, after my paternal WASP ancestor, who remains one of the finest exemplars of the breed,” Mr. Malloch wrote in his autobiography, Davos, Aspen & Yale. The connection has been repeated by rightwing publications such as Breitbart, which referred to him as “great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt.” The Daily Caller said that Mr. Malloch saw “many similarities between his ancestor and The Donald”.

However, birth records cast doubt on the genealogical link. Malloch said the relationship was through his father, Theodore Roosevelt Malloch, who was born in Philadelphia in 1921. An obituary of Mr. Malloch, Sr. does not mention any link to President Roosevelt, who had died two years before he was born. Mr. Malloch Sr.’s parents were Henry Wilson Malloch, a plumber from Scotland, and Frieda Schneider, a housewife born in Germany.

No link between them and President Roosevelt, who was aged about 35 when they were born has been found. President Roosevelt’s great-great-grandson, Kermit Roosevelt, said he had not heard of Ted Malloch. Malloch claims “I was always told that my grandmother was a distant Roosevelt relative.” German birth records are available only to direct descendants. Mr. Malloch initially offered to provide a birth certificate that would prove his claim but then declined to do so, saying he was “under no obligation to share private information.” One of Malloch’s uncles was named Woodrow Wilson Malloch. Mr. Malloch declined to comment on whether the family was related to Woodrow Wilson.

I think we can conclude that Malloch’s claim is another gigantic lie to add to the huge trail of lies and deceit Malloch will hopefully be remembered by.
