Obama, Israel’s houseboy, names Elie Wiesel to U.S. Holocaust Council

by Carolyn Yeager

Why do we have a United States Holocaust Memorial Council, anyway?

This story may seem “old news”  as I didn’t get around to posting it when I first saw it. The appointments by the White House took place on Oct. 29. It is still important news, though, as a way of explaining just what is the US Holocaust Memorial Council.  I did not know, and knowing what it is helps us to realize just how big an investment the U.S. Government has made in keeping “the Holocaust” alive and kicking in the minds of Americans and foreign visitors to Washington, DC. So here goes …

The United States Holocaust Memorial Council is the governing body of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Did you know that the USHMM, as it’s known, is a project of the U.S. Government? That’s important to know. The Council alone consists of 55 presidential appointees, in addition to ten Congressional representatives and three ex-officio members from the Departments of Education, Interior, and State. That adds up to 68 high-level persons who all get paid by the taxpayers, in one way or another, for “serving” on this Council.

Of the five new Council members, four are Jews. Not only Jews, but they are very active in “holocaust” promotion and other causes solely for Jews. The first is Wiesel, who I think has been a member from the beginning, as he was its Founding Chairman in 1980, appointed by Democrat Jimmy Carter. At that time, Wiesel attempted to sell the idea by writing to Carter that Holocaust activists aim to use the commission (set up to create  the museum) to “reach and transform as many human beings as possible. We hope to share our conviction that when war and genocide unleash hatred against any one people or peoples, all are ultimately engulfed in the fire.” Of course, this is never applied to Israel, or even the U.S., which proves the hypocrisy of the “remembrance” campaigns of the Jews. The other appointees are:

Joseph D. Gutman, who is on the executive committee of Birthright Israel and has held leadership roles with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and the Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Roman R. Kent, born in Lodz, Poland (so we know his name is not really Kent) and serves as Chairman of the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants, is President of the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous and of the International Auschwitz Committee,  and is Treasurer of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

Howard D. Unger, an investment banker, the son of a Holocaust survivor,  a member of the Committee on Conscience — the Museum’s genocide prevention initiative, and serves on the board of the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center.

Clemantine Wamariya, a friend of Elie Wiesel, who “survived” the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and now lives in Kenilworth, IL (a very upscale suburb of Chicago).  She began speaking about her experiences on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2005 and has shared her story at Museum events around the country. Currently an undergraduate at Yale University, she is involved in the Yale Refugee Project, which works closely with New Haven’s Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services.

It’s apparent  that each of these persons has a personal investment in keeping holocaust propaganda in the news and appearing  timely.  They are not objective and don’t balance each other out. However, President Obama said of his appointments:  “These fine public servants bring both a depth of experience and tremendous dedication to their new roles […] Our nation will be well-served by these men and women, and I look forward to working with them in the months and years to come.”

U.S. Holocaust Museum and Memorial Council are overwhelmingly Jewish operations

Some of the other newer members of the Council, appointed in June, are Nancy B. Gilbert (Jewish activist), Deborah E. Lipstadt (Jewish activist & author) and Marc R. Stanley (Jewish activist). Members of Congress who serve on the Council are Gabriele Gifford (Jewish, AZ), Patrick Grimm (RC, NY and Brooklyn-born),  Nan Hayworth (NY), Pat Meehan (RC, PA), Henry Waxman (Jewish, CA). From the Senate: Richard Durbin (RC, IL); Orrin Hatch (Mormon, UT); Frank R. Lautenberg (NJ) and Bernard Sanders (VT),  both Jewish. I’m sure they all get stipends for this “service,” or at the very least “expenses” with no questions asked.

To see a list of the current members of the Council, which appears to be entirely Jewish (though I suppose a few are not), go here:

In addition to this is the large staff of the Holocaust Memorial Museum itself, for which the Federal government donated the land and the U.S. Congress voted unanimously to establish in 1980 after concerted lobbying by American Jews with Israeli backing.  Jewish groups came up with a large amount of original funding for the museum, but now American taxpayers provide the bulk of the Holocaust Museum’s annual budget – in 2003 to the tune of $38.4 million which was 67% at the time. Its government funding for fiscal year 2004 was increased to $39,997,000.  It is currently in the area of $50 million a year. (By comparison, in 2003, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts received less than $34 million in federal funding. That figure was cut to $32,560,000 for fiscal year 2004.)1

Moreover, in the year 2000, President Bill Clinton, a Democrat, signed legislation granting the museum permanent status as a federal agency, in effect locking in federal support. As a museum press release explained at the time, “Permanent status permits Congress to provide funding without having to review the federal role. Every U.S. government entity requires congressional authority before funds can be allocated; but not every federal institution is given permanent status.”

According to the USHMM website, the museum’s function is to be a “living memorial to the Holocaust.” The U.S. taxpayers were not asked whether they thought their tax money should go to providing in perpetuity a living memorial to “The Holocaust” on American soil, but their Congressmen-and-women answered the demand of the Jews to do it in their name.

Constant media propaganda deceives many an American into thinking this expensive memorial is helping world peace or global humanitarianism. According to an ADL (Anti-Defamation League) press release, the program “brings law enforcement officers to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.  for an intensive program that challenges them to examine their relationship with the public and to explore issues of personal responsiblity and ethical conduct.”2  If the museum helps foot the bill for these junkets, that would explain where some of the yearly $50 million goes. In what way, however,  does it help U.S. law enforcement officers do a better job enforcing U.S. law, except to “profile” certain groups as likely victims and others as likely perpetrators? It appears to be nothing more than indoctrination. The same is done with school children who are also brought to the museum to be indoctrinated into who are the victims and who the perpetrators.

Who is taking advantage of whom?

This is just one piece of the morality tale of how our government gets stolen out from under us by clever, well-organized Jews and elected representatives of the people who, instead of serving the majority interests, serve Jewish interests.  Elie Wiesel has been a ‘friend’ of every U.S. President since he became a U.S. citizen in 1963 … why? There are other ‘holocaust  survivors’ among the U.S. population, some with far better stories than Wiesel’s. Many have even written books. Why aren’t they feted by Presidents and put in charge of multi-million dollar budgets and taxpayer-funded museums? Why is it always Wiesel?

One thing we can say is that a large part of the USHMM’s mission is to facilitate and secure a glorious legacy for Elie Wiesel. He is the chosen one to represent, as much as is possible in the person of one man, the horror and meaning and continuation of the Jewish Shoah for all time. Thus, the USHMM devotes a lot of attention to Wiesel now, and after he is dead … well, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.  Here, as an example, is what was said upon bestowing on Wiesel the  museum’s highest honor in May of this year, which they even named after him:

In honor of Wiesel’s extraordinary vision and moral stature, which not only created the Museum but inspired a worldwide movement of Holocaust remembrance and education, the award henceforth will be named the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Elie Wiesel Award.

As a speaker at this event, Clemantine Wamariya (mentioned above as one of the October appointees to the Holocaust Council), said of the impact Wiesel’s book Night had on her as an 8th grade student, “It was as if my mouth opened and I’ve never been quiet since. It spoke to me directly and told me I must not be silent.”

Above: “Saint Elie of Wiesel”

Elie Wiesel the public personage cannot be separated from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. It is as responsible for him as he is responsible for it. What that means will continue to be explored on this website.

    The USHMM somehow fails to provide any information about this nice lady.

    I wonder why.

    We have to talk about all Holocausts!

    America is indeed the nation which is permanent perpetrating a Holocaust around the nations on Earth: Iraq, Vietnam and many others.

    The ovens have been replaced by something called US air force.

    Shame on you.

    Shame on me? FYI, the U.S. Air Force (along with the British RAF) destroyed Germany too, killing hundreds of thousands of German civilians and making millions homeless. The purpose of the “ovens” you bring up was to cremate the dead. It was the Germans who were cremated alive in their fire-bombed cities. Maybe you should think before you write, and try to be more precise. As it is, you sound like you are shouting slogans in the street. And give yourself and us a real name.

    A tax payer funded museum that shouldn’t even be there, is headed up by the greatest holocaust-liar alive?

    I think we need to set things right again.

    What a load of diamond Zisblatt.
    It’s not even surprising, really, how this country uses propaganda in order to
    “create” evil and “manufacture” “heroes.”
    Yes, we honor liars, throw millions of dollars at them and we don’t even investigate their past or what really happened.
    Elie Wiesel is a messenger of peace and justice like Stalin was.
    Using lies to psychologically screw up white children and destroy the white race should not be celebrated.
    They are doing worse than what the nazis ever did.
    Holocaust memorial gives them an excuse to lie and do whatever they want while we are supposed to be guilty and sorry for them and hand them cash to boot.
    The only thing the holohoax does is instill a legend among people that all races should be treated fairly no matter how little they contribute or how destructive their behavior is.
    We must treat them like our own and love them or else another “HOLOHOAX” will happen,
    while at the same time destroying white pride and nationalism, creating communism,
    all while letting jews get away with any atrocity they commit because if someone ever questions them they are labeled a nazi-racist and cannot be taken seriously ever again.
    The holohoax does more damage than any lie in the history of the world.
    We can drop Jewish nukes on Japanese civilians and exterminate them “FOR REAL,”
    while the germans are punished for imaginary war crimes.
    “History is Written by the Victors.”

    Just another day in zionist run america!
