CLEVELAND, OH – While the ethnic backgrounds of U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have been much-discussed as presidential candidates along with that of Mexican American Julian Castro and Andrew Wang of Taiwan, none of the Russian American candidates for president are being identified as “Russian American” or “Soviet American” to the audiences of voters they’re talking to across the nation. Even U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s “Native American” drop of blood has been the subject of public discussion.
In a nation where a white woman named Rachel Dolezal can nap her hair and call herself “black,” to avoid a real discussion of their ethnic origins it might be okay for Armenian American Buttigieg, and Russian Americans Michael Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders, to identify by their “religions.” Unlike the “first woman” or “first Mexicans” who are seeking the job, Bloomberg, Sanders and Buttigieg wouldn’t get too far telling voters of their desire to become the first Russian American or Soviet American president. Despite its Communist Party affiliation and Soviet Union membership, Armenia is a Christian nation. Buttigieg calls himself a devout “Episcopalen.”
Currently, 33 members of the U.S. Congress have Russian or Soviet ancestries. Twelve in the U.S. Senate. 21 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Illinois Governor Jay Robert Pritzker and Colorado Governor Jared Polis are Russian Americans.
Booker is a 9th generation Descendant of U.S. Slaves. One of Harris’ parents is from India and the other from Jamaica. Booker’s black descendants number 48 million and are the nation’s second largest ethnic demographic behind 50 million German Americans. Between Harris’ Asian and Jamaican U.S. countrymen combined they number about 900,000. Only Booker – as what the dreamers like to call “a person of color” – is connected to a real political base as a Descendant of U.S. Slaves. The number of U.S. Slave Descendants is over 280 million when “passing for white” U.S. citizens like some of Booker’s lighter-skinned African and WASP ancestors are counted. Ex-Slave DNA is in all of this nation’s original and later nationalities.
Both Bloomberg’s parents are Russian aliens. His father’s father, Elik Bloomberg, immigrated here in the 19th Century. The same with his mother’s father, Max Rubens, was from the Russian Empire’s Belarus.
Sanders identifies as being of Polish ancestry though his mother, Dorothy Glassberg, was born in 1912 to Russian Empire aliens from Poland and Austria-Hungary. Even before Russia came under the control of Vladmir Lenin and Josef Stalin between 1914 and 1917, Poland was occupied by Russia while the U.S. Civil War was raging in 1863. Russian Czar Alexander II sent two fleets of his navy’s sailors to San Francisco and New York during that war just in case Britain and France tried to help Polish and Lithuanians who wanted independence. So even the Polish arriving here before and after the Civil War were Russian. Alexander crushed the revolting Poles and Russia kept Poland under its control until 1921.
President Abraham Lincoln tolerated the Russian ship presence because Czar Alexander II supported the Union against Britain and France’s support of the Confederacy. After the Civil War and Lincoln’s assassination future U.S. presidents made sure no Russian ships ever sailed near or “within” the U.S’s borders again. When Sander’s mother was born in New York in 1912 Poland and the Ukraine were still Russia’s. His father emigrated directly from Communist Austria-Hungary in 1921 when European immigration had slowed as they’d become deportation targets.
The majority of Bloomberg’s Russian or Soviet ancestral countrymen living here are from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Romania and started arriving in larger numbers after the U.S. Civil War ended in 1865. Hungary was a Soviet satellite. Austrians were split between Russia and Germany.
Buttigieg and Kim Kardashian’s ancestral Armenia voluntarily joined the Soviet Union in 1922. All were under the Communist influence of Karl Marx, Vladmir Lenin and Josef Stalin. Stalin led these Soviet nations as General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union before he migrated Russians to live in and take over Palestine in 1947. He’d also designated a part of California as a “homeland” for Russian Jews.
The “Jewish” population in the United States is mainly Russian. The same Russian majority exists on Palestinian land in Israel. Russians and Jews in the U.S. are a population of about 5.2 million out of 320 million in a Christian nation that hates both Russia and Communism.
Alone Russian Americans are 1.9 percent of the population in a 79 percent Christian nation whose White Anglo Saxon Protestestant (WASP) majority enacted laws identifying their Soviet ancestors as “anarchists” and “Reds” after the Civil War; and during the 1890’s and early 1900’s. Politically they have no “ethnic” base that will get them elected beyond the level of local city councils. After “the Red Summer” of 1919, immigration of Russians to the nation was intentionally slowed down to ensure the “Americanization” of those who were already here.
Many like the “Neuhaus family” that owns Advance Communications “Americanized” their Russian and Soviet last name to “Newhouse” to appear more WASP. The same with former Forest City Enterprises president the late Samuel “Miller” whose Russian last name was “Minkin.” This allowed them to attempt to blend in as white when the Ku Klux Klan in “free” states like Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and California organized chapters that made Russians and Catholics terror targets.
Ohio led the nation in anti-Russian and anti-Eastern European KKK members with 400,000 strong. Akron was KKK central for Ohio and the nation with 50,000 members. Russian Jews are associated by very conservative Christians with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Russians and other Eastern Europeans have no major political presence in the Bible Belt Deep South states but Florida.
The violent and job-snatching “unions” Russian Jews like Samuel Gompers and their Soviet countrymen brought with them as they arrived here during the 1880’s came at the expense of the pre-Civil War WASP’s and enslaved and freed African “citizens” of this nation who’d already fought and died over whether American work would be paid or performed free by Slaves.
Gompers was a Russian born in England who migrated to the U.S. and founded the American Federation of Labor in 1881. He wanted to carve out jobs for other Russians and Eastern Europeans; and to insert their Marxist thinking into this nation’s politics and laws.
These Marxist unions battled with the corporations whose owners were hiring freed Slaves and their descendants; as well as the Descendants of pre-Civil War WASPs. When Russians called themselves organizing a labor strike in Chicago in 1888 during the “Haymarket Riots,” one threw a stick of dynamite in a crowd and killed 7 cops. [NOTE: Southern states are “right to work” and lawmakers have enacted laws making it illegal to negotiate wages and benefits with public employee unions].
After Lenin’s birth in 1870, and his rise to political influence in Russia over the next 40 years, Russians in the U.S. like the Chinese were becoming deportation targets. With Lenin’s political presence came his “loot the looter” thinking that Russians had a right to use violence and political assassinations in their anarchist “labor revolutions” and theft of the wealthy’s riches. Lenin encouraged Russian “anarchists” to use the money they’d stolen to build wealth abroad and infiltrate his Communist brand under “changed names” into other nations.
The words below are those Lenin shared with the parents and grandparents of Bloomberg, Sanders and Buttigieg as their nation of origin’s Communist party leader in February 1918.
The bourgeoisie … and the saboteurs are … conspiring against us. They know that they will be completely ruined … if the people succeed in dividing the national wealth which is now in the exclusive possession of the rich …
That is where your function begins. You must organize and consolidate the Soviet power in the villages. You will encounter there the village-bourgeoisie–the kulaks-who will hinder your work in every way. But to fight them will be an easy matter. The masses will be with you …
Make it clear to the peasant that the kulaks and the bloodsuckers must be expropriated in order to bring about a just and equitable distribution of goods … The bourgeoisie are concealing in their coffers the riches which they have plundered, and are saying, “We shall sit tight for a while.” We must catch the plunderers and compel them to return the spoils.
Your chief business will be this: do not let the brigands get away with their riches, otherwise we shall perish …
That Bolshevik was right who in reply to a question whether or not it was true that the Bolsheviks are looters, said, “Yes, we loot the looters.”
It was Russian Leon Czolgosz’s trip from Cleveland, Ohio to Buffalo, New York to assassinate President William McKinley after a conversation he had with Russian Emma Goldman in 1901 that brought the nation’s WASP majority to say “enough.” Congress had already enacted the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1899. Immigration was capped, annually, at three percent to thin the herd of European aliens who’d been allowed into the nation; and to let their individual cultures be wiped out through Americanization over the next generations.
In 1903 Congress enacted the Immigration Act that WASP politicians called the “Anarchist Exclusion Act of 1903.” They clearly intended to ensure Russians and other European aliens spreading Communism, unions and encouraging American men not to join the armed forces got the message they were not welcomed. They still didn’t stop.
Under the guise of “free speech” Russians continued to spread their Communist message, anti-black and WASP unions, and as non-citizens continued to interfere with President Thomas Woodrow Wilson’s World War 1 recruitment effort. Like Russian American U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff, and Ukrainian American Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, they didn’t want the U.S. helping Russian czars or Stalin continue their occupation of Ukraine and Poland.
Anti-Russian feelings in this nation worsened when Russian Jew Leo Frank raped and killed 13-year-old Mary Phagan and convinced a U.S. Descendant of Slaves, Newt Lee, to help him get rid of her body. Frank owned a factory and employed children in violation of labor laws like the other Russian factory owners in Atlanta. He also had the same sexual tastes as another Russian American, Jeffrey Epstein, for sex with the 13-year-old girls he employed.
Jeffersonian publisher Thomas Watson called for the lynch mob that took Frank out of jail and hung him after the Russians leading their newly-created Anti-Defamation League tried to smear Jim Conley and Lee as the “real” blame-it-on-the-black-man murderers in 1915. When asked why Newt wasn’t fired if he was the illiterate waste of human life he was described as by the Russians, Frank and every other white employee said he was the only person who knew the whole business. Newt, as a Descendant of Slaves in 1915, was among the 70 percent of freed Africans who’d lifted themselves up to a high level of literacy without formal educations 40 years after slavery ended in 1865.
By 1917 and their vicious “labor” attack on the Descendants of U.S. Slaves in East Saint Louis, Illinois that resulted in over 300 dead unarmed black men, women and children, the nation’s WASP majority said enough with the Russians and Europeans.
Former President Theodore Roosevelt had been disgusted that armed Russians, Soviet and Irish Catholics entered East Saint Louis’ black neighborhoods to drive them out of the city because they’d migrated from the south to the north to live and work. Russians like Gompers called them “strike breakers” as a justification for their violence.
From East Saint Louis they took their labor riots to St. Louis, Tulsa, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, Charlotte (North Carolina), Atlanta and another 17 cities in 1925. Roosevelt said if he’d been president during the vicious and cowardly 1917 Russian and Irish Catholic massacre of outnumbered black men, women and children in East Saint Louis he’d have ordered federal troops to hunt them down.
After Russians like Gompers, Goldman and Berkman continued to promote their violence and anarchist anti-war activities, Congress passed the Espionage Act in 1917 the same year as the beginning of their anti-black riots in East Saint Louis.
FBI agent John Edgar Hoover, a U.S. Descendant of Slaves, wasn’t yet the agency’s director and had been in charge of identifying enemy aliens. He created a list of more than 10,000 Russian and Eastern European anarchists Wilson’s U.S. Attorney General, Alexander Palmer used successfully in his prosecutions. By 1919 Russian and Eastern European “anarchists” led anti-black and anti-WASP so-called labor riots in 25 U.S. cities. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently reminded her city’s residents of the anti-black riots 100 years ago.
With that law as his tool, President Wilson used the FBI and local cops to round up over 4500 Russians for deportation during what the media called the 1919 Palmer Raids. 240 Russian anarchists like Goldberg and Berkman were shipped out of the country aboard a U.S. naval vessel the media called “The Soviet Ark.” The Espionage Act continues to be used today.
With such disruptive, government-changing lawlessness and anti-black and anti-WASP violence associated with the presence of Russians in the U.S., it’s understood why Bloomberg and Sanders might prefer to identify themselves as “being raised in Jewish families” instead of as “Russian Americans.” Soviets like Bloomberg, Sanders, Buttigieg and other Eastern European politicians with no political base seem to all share the same “escape from oppression and dream of freedom” story.
According to their Anti-Defamation League, violent attacks on Russian synagogues have increased since President Donald Trump’s 2016 election resurrected this nation’s hard core anti-Russian feelings. Perhaps the American descendants of the dead from past Russian anarchist labor violence haven’t forgotten.
Irrespective of their religious affiliations, there are at least three “Russian” Democratic candidates for POTUS with Soviet Union origins at a time when this nation is concerned about “Russian” interference in U.S. elections. Bloomberg has an office in Moscow. So does Buttigieg’s former “McKinsey” employer. Bloomberg, Sanders and Buttigieg each express loyalty to the Russians leading Israel who slaughtered 34 U.S. sailors aboard the USS Liberty in 1967; and wounded 171.
With 33 Russian Americans serving in the U.S. Congress in numbers that are disproportionate to their 1.9 percent population, and Russian Americans Adam Schiff and Jerold Nadler heading two key Congressional committees directing an impeachment of Trump for offending the Ukraine’s first “Jewish” president, the words “Russian coup” continues to surface in American political conversations.
26 U.S. states have enacted laws denouncing criticism of the Russians controlling Palestine which for this nation makes absolutely no sense given its history with Russian anarchists who immigrated here; and “Israel’s” 1967 slaughter of U.S. soldiers.
It reflects the success of Russians leading the ADL who have successfully re-programmed the world to see criticism of Russian politicians like Benjamin Netanyahu, Bloomberg, Sanders and Buttigieg as “anti-semitism.”
When this nation’s leaders discussed and enacted laws to deal with the internal security issues the Russians created here with their presence, they didn’t see themselves as dealing with “semitic” people. They were dealing with their violent, name-changing and government overthrowing ancestors here as “anarchists.”
With at least three known Russian and Soviet candidates in the race for POTUS, the Russian-controlled ADL has amassed enough political power to have Russian Americans attorneys appointed to the office of U.S. Attorney; and it is interesting how they have now labeled the descendants of the WASP’s who once caused their deportation to be identified as domestic terrorists and “white nationalists.
