In previous parts of this review of Kushner, Inc. by Vicky Ward, we covered the history of the Kushner Crime Family and their attachment to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
In this section, we will cover the way that Jared Kushner single-handedly ran the Trump transition team after pushing out Chris Christie, and the various crimes he committed during that process.
When on November 8 at 2:29 AM, the Associated Press called Wisconsin for Trump and declared him the winner of the 2016 presidential election, Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller got to work on a victory speech.
Bannon was getting revved up to write something “fire-breathing”—something that gave a shout-out to the people he fondly called the “hobbits” and the “forgotten” men who had voted for Trump. He was clear on what was needed in the moment: “We’re marching on Washington.… This is a rally speech.”
“Marching on Washington” really gets the blood flowing.
That would have been glorious.
Instead, what we ended up with was a concession speech in place of a victory speech.
We were all flying too high to see it at the time, but the speech Trump gave was calling for unity, thanking Hillary and calling her a good person, all kinds of surrendering.
And it turns out that Jared and Ivanka had convinced Trump to veto the Bannon/Miller speech, and “deescalate.”
So, when Trump took the podium at the New York Hilton hotel in midtown Manhattan at almost 3 A.M., he began by praising Hillary Clinton and saying: “Now it’s time for Americans to bind the wounds of division.… We will seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict.”
I have since gone back and watched that speech, and was shocked by how out of place it was. And of course, just like everything else that has gone wrong with the Trump administration, the Jew was behind it.
In hindsight, Bannon would see something more profound in the alterations. Right there, within thirty minutes of winning the election, was the first sign of the personal conflict that would later wreak so much havoc in the Trump administration. The speech was a mess; contradictory and strange, wimpy and tough. “That speech is the original sin of this administration,” he thought.
Bannon had believed—and still believes—that Trump is a transformational historical figure, a disrupter, an agent of change. The man might be temperamental and deeply flawed, but his ability to connect to the forgotten man, to articulate the raw anger among the working class, is extraordinary. But Kushner and Ivanka, Bannon felt, had no understanding of that. What they saw was raw power, and they wanted Trump to be liked.
But that night showed them they’d face an uphill battle to become America’s first prince and princess. Kushner was shocked that Trump never mentioned him in his speech and would later tell people he felt slighted. He was going to find a way to get Trump to notice him more, to trust him more. Ivanka would help him. As Trump moved toward the White House, the couple would become known as a single, powerful entity: Javanka.
This is just an incredible level of hubris.
Kushner wants to be the controlling Jew behind the curtain, but he also wants to be publicly credited for that role, which sort of defeats the purpose of being a Jew behind the curtain.
And this is a hubris that again shows just how incapable Kushner is. He actually believes he was responsible for the win, when in fact he almost sank the campaign by taking over and firing Lewindowski, and it was only saved by Bannon. Trump didn’t win the 2016 election because of Kushner, but despite him. And now that Kushner has solidified his control over Trump, it is going to be incredibly difficult – I think impossible – for Trump to win in 2020.
The book chronicles how important the internet was for Trump in the 2016 election, but under the advisement of Kushner, Trump has made no moves whatsoever to attempt to respond to the censorship online that is crushing his support base. In fact, he said that he would win despite the censorship by “being really good.”
It is headed for disaster.
What is shocking with the Bannon-Kushner dynamic is that early on, Bannon was actually on the same side as Kushner.
This is what happens to a boomer who is afraid of the word “Jew.”
The first thing they did together was gang-attack Chris Christie and get him fired from heading up the transition team.
Before the book was released, Christie wrote a very good article about this scene in POLITICO. It is quite clear that Christie didn’t interview for the Ward book (which is surprising, given that he gives the impression of a guy who would interview for any book, especially one attacking the Kushners), but Bannon did interview for it. Christie’s POLITICO description of the firing scene didn’t mention Bannon. In fact, in the book, Christie comes to Bannon for emotional support after the decision is made, and apparently didn’t even know that Bannon sided with Kushner. He knows now.
Kushner had the obvious reason to hate Christie – he had prosecuted his father. Bannon was just against him because he was establishment GOP.
Kushner said, “Christie has to go.” Bannon agreed. Kushner had appeared to work well with Christie, not betraying any personal animosity toward the New Jersey governor during the campaign. Ironically, it had been Bannon who had fought with Christie—they had almost gotten into a fistfight the weekend the Billy Bush tape was released. (Christie had accused Bannon of being an “enabler” of Trump’s extreme pronouncements.)
You’d have thought Bannon would have been sharp enough to think “enemy of my enemy,” but apparently, he just wasn’t.
Also quite surprising to me was the revelation that Michael Flynn was a Kushner shill, something that was hinted at previously but is clearly spelled out in the book.
Pretty much every single person that got caught up in the Russia probe was a Kushner shill, excluding Michael Cohen.
A few hours later, Kushner came to see Bannon again. “I was talking to Ivanka. She and Don Jr. and Eric agree that [Michael] Flynn gets anything he wants. And that should be national security adviser.” Bannon agreed.
And this part was just bizarre.
On Thursday, November 10, Trump and Kushner visited the White House, where, in a one-on-one Oval Office meeting, President Barack Obama gave Trump two pieces of advice: One was that the biggest problem he would face as president was the nuclear threat posed by North Korea. The second was a warning against hiring Flynn: “He’ll cause you nothing but problems.” Trump later told Bannon, who told others: “Obama is a cool guy. I like him. He likes me. You’d like him.” Bannon told people that Trump never felt as positive about Flynn again.
There are many points in the book that make you realize just how absolutely clueless Trump is.
Basically, the theme of the book is Trump the witless boob being hoodwinked on an hourly basis by a gaggle of conniving Jews. You really do start to see him as a total victim of the Kushner machine, a man who just didn’t have the intellectual, emotional or psychological defenses against a brutal onslaught by an organized Jewish cabal.
Kushner was effectively in charge of the entire transition process after having 86ed Christie, and proceeded to fill the incoming administration with people he knew would be loyal to him, mostly Jews.
There was even a Jew from Genie Energy, the company that is extracting the resources from the Golan Heights that Trump recently declared sovereign Jewish territory.
For his vetting team, he made a couple of slightly odd choices: former U.S. Representative John Sweeney from New York, who had lost his reelection in 2006 amid allegations of spousal abuse. (Both Sweeney and his wife denied the allegations at the time, although months later Sweeney’s wife told the Albany Times-Union that her statement had been “coerced.”) Sweeney had also been arrested and convicted multiple times on drunk driving charges. Another was lawyer Ira Greenstein, a Kushner family friend then working for the New Jersey–based energy firm Genie Energy, which had a controversial drilling contract in Israel and is led by the Orthodox Jewish billionaire Howard Jonas.
I think we already knew that Kushner brought in Goldman Sachs Jew Gary Cohn.
Avi Berkowitz, a graduate of Harvard Law School (he’d met Kushner playing basketball on a family holiday), took the space next to Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs president, who was selected as director of the National Economic Council. Kushner had introduced Cohn to Trump. Cohn was a Democrat, but he was by far the most blue-chip hire the transition team made—and Kushner was proud of that.
Cohn actually interviewed for the book, giving a description of Kushner as a type of stupid psychopath. He claims he was always telling Kushner he couldn’t do all of these illegal things he was doing, but Kushner wouldn’t listen to him.
The reason that Cohn would interview for a book about a Jewish conspiracy to undermine the US government is that he is so obviously Jewish that when people see him portrayed as honest and devoted to doing his duty as an American, they will think that the Kushners were just “bad people who happen to be Jewish.”
Throughout the transition (and after, as we will see later), Kushner was openly mixing his personal business affairs – particularly those surrounding 666 Fifth Avenue and trying to get someone to pay for it – with his role as being in charge of the entire Trump Administration.
He secretly met with Chinese and Qatari investors in an official capacity and tried to get them to pay for his antichrist building. He even had a secret meeting with Russian bankers during the transition period wherein he presented himself as both a representative of the incoming administration and of Kushner Companies. This is a lot dumber than the stuff Hillary Clinton did with the Clinton Foundation, but it is absolutely just as bad.
Throughout, we see that Jared simply has no ability to comprehend that any rule created by the goyim could ever apply to him. This is clearly the general thinking of most Millennial-aged Jews, who have lost the memory of the struggle their grandparents underwent to conquer America. It is in many ways a good sign.
Ivanka also continued to run her own fashion business, which became a questionable situation when the family met with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe while Ivanka was in the middle of a business deal with the Japanese national bank.
Apparently, Ivanka held on to her businesses because she was making more money with the businesses than Trump was giving her. The book alleges that Trump is stingy and doesn’t give much money to his kids.
Charlie Kushner pops back into the story when Bannon visits 666. It’s very clear that he was always close by, scheming.
Following Trump taking a call from the president of Taiwan, the Chinese sent officials to talk to Trump’s people about the territorial integrity of China, and Jared scheduled the meeting in 666.
As he stepped out of the elevator and onto the fifteenth floor at 666 Fifth, Bannon was greeted by an effusive Charlie Kushner, who shook his hand with a vise grip. “My kid loves you,” he said. “You’re what he needs. They need assholes. You’re an asshole. You’ve got to be tough.”
Then Bannon, Jared, McFarland, the two Chinese diplomats, and a handful of others from China all filed into a conference room. Yang started off with a two-hour lecture on Chinese history. Reading from a neat stack of papers, he repeated several times, “The territorial integrity and the sovereignty of the People’s Republic of China is not to ever be questioned.”
During the time of this meeting, Jared was still talking to the Chinese about putting money in 666 – the building they met the Chinese in for the purposes of official government business.
Bizarrely, it was Ivanka who planned the White House office layout.
Ivanka had, initially, been overseeing plans for the East Wing, ordinarily the First Lady’s job. Two transition officials saw the plans upon which Ivanka, or someone acting on her behalf, had stenciled in the corner office of the East Wing as “Trump Family Office.” The transition officials were surprised that the First Lady did not appear to have an office. So, too, was Melania Trump, who quickly put an end to Ivanka’s scheming. When she saw the plans, according to one official, “Melania put her foot down.” Two sources confirmed that Ivanka was clearly told to back off. After that, there was no more talk of the “Trump Family Office.”
Not really surprising.
Ivanka is clearly Trump’s first and most cherished wife.
Here is an interesting scene that I’ve not heard recounted anywhere else. Kushner invited Bannon to a breakfast with Tony Blair, wherein Blair was flanked by a Hedge Fund Israel Jew.
Bannon did remember a guy in the meeting who he assumed worked for Blair and sounded like a mid-level political operative. He was surprised when Kushner told him afterward it was his “buddy” Rick Gerson, a staunchly pro-Israel hedge fund manager with financial ties to the court of MBZ, the Abu Dhabi crown prince. Gerson would travel soon after to the Seychelles, around the same time as a meeting was arranged by the Emiratis between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and the head of a Russian fund, Kirill Dmitriev, at MBZ’s resort, that would come under scrutiny by congressional and Department of Justice investigators. One person who knows Gerson and his brother Mark told me that “they like hanging out with powerful people, particularly if those people are helpful to Israel.”
So these Israel Jews just hang around powerful people and try to get them to help Israel. And it’s all just casual, and Jared Kushner is involved.
It was later revealed that Blair was in talks to become Trump’s “Middle East envoy,” though that never went through.
It was general Flynn who shilled for Kushner and Ivanka to get security clearances, even though this violated American anti-nepotism laws.
And it was Jared that took down Flynn by getting him to engage in some shady business with the Russian ambassador, during which business Jared presented the idea of setting up a secret backchannel with Russia in the Russian embassy. The entire point of this was that Jared wanted to be able to communicate with them about Syria to protect the interests of Israel. Of course.
Jared and Flynn were then involved with a Jewish conspiracy to swing a UN vote.
The one topic Kushner was talkative about was Israel. Or at least that seemed to be the perspective of Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador, who, having consulted with Netanyahu, reached out to Kushner in late December to ask for his assistance. The Obama administration was supporting a UN Security Council resolution condemning the construction of West Bank settlements. Kushner was upset. “[The Obama people] had their turn. They failed. Why are they trying to make our job harder on the way out?” he was reported saying in The New Yorker. He and Flynn got to work trying to reach out to foreign dignitaries whose phone numbers, for the most part, they did not possess. The idea was that these people would help influence the vote. Ultimately, their incompetence did not really matter; the U.S. abstained—though the resolution passed, with fourteen votes for it and none against. What was highly unusual, however, was the battle between the transition team and the sitting government. It was as if Kushner viewed Netanyahu as his boss and Obama as his enemy.
Yeah, it does seem like that, doesn’t it?
Also during the transition, Jared was going around telling American Jews that Trump wasn’t going to fulfill any of his campaign promises.
On December 16, Kushner went to the offices of Morgan Stanley in New York City’s Times Square to speak before the Partnership for New York City, a gathering of some four hundred New York senior business and financial executives. In his address, Kushner said Trump was “easy to hate from afar,” but he told the crowd not to assume he’d govern as he had campaigned. He said the administration would likely take a “rational” stance when it came to immigration, which startled some Republicans in attendance.
If Republicans are shocked by it, he must have been really going nuts.
A senior investment banker who attended that meeting said Kushner came off as extraordinarily arrogant. “It came across that he really believed he could control Trump.”
Yeah. Well. What happened with that?
It almost makes you cry to hear that Trump wasn’t certain about bringing Jared and Ivanka into the White House at first.
[Donald] McGahn liked Kushner, but sources say he’d received feedback from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel suggesting that neither Kushner nor Ivanka could legally join the White House staff without a legal opinion, due to anti-nepotism laws. Further, McGahn was on the fence about them coming in; his job was to protect the president. “You know the real reason there’s an anti-nepotism law?” he told Bannon. “It’s not so much about corruption—though it is, partly—as it is about incompetence. You can’t fire family, as a general rule.”
Trump had, to some degree, comprehended this. Or at least he had blown hot and cold as to whether Kushner or Ivanka should come with him to Washington. “I don’t even know that I will be involved with [Jared] … when I move to the White House,” he told me in a phone conversation during the transition. A handful of people, including McGahn and right-wing media personality Ann Coulter, had warned Trump about this. “Nobody is apparently telling you this. But you can’t. You can’t just hire your children,” Coulter told him.
Ah, what could have been, if Trump had listened to Ann.
But the Kushner snake was too slimy and too clever.
It ended up being the Obama people who dismissed the long-standing rules about nepotism and allowed for the couple to stay in the White House.
McGahn told Bannon and Priebus that the Obama-era Justice Department was leaning toward accepting the allowance for Kushner, albeit reluctantly: “Because you [Bannon] and [Stephen] Miller scare people more than Jared. They think Jared and Ivanka would be a calming influence.”
A calming influence.
Well, that play worked out very well for the Democrats.
What is incredible is that Boomer Bannon supported this move.
Bannon took a deep breath and said he agreed with the Obama-era Justice Department: “I think we might need them [Javanka].” He told McGahn and Priebus to think back to the Billy Bush weekend crisis. “Our craziest moments of the campaign, the really craziest moments, even Hope [Hicks] can’t get to [Trump]. Only Jared and Ivanka can talk him down off the ledge. We’re going to have so many of those. We’re going to need Jared, to be able to talk to him like a son-in-law, with Ivanka. I think we need that. I think it’s worth it.” On January 20, the Justice Department released its opinion, approving Kushner to start work in the White House.
How ghost-faced wasted were you when you made that call?
Almost more shocking than that he did this is that he admitted to it for this book. He interviewed with Ward. The fact that he shilled for Kushner to stay in the White House hasn’t ever been published before. He is just volunteering this like “yeah, I killed the administration because it seemed like a good idea at the time, because if Hope Hicks can’t talk to Trump, who can?”
This is what happens with boomers. This is the cost of not being able to emotionally process the fact that Jews are Jews are Jews are Jews.
In Part VI, we will cover the Kushners’ move to Washington and their hostile takeover of the United States.
