Dr. Cynthia McKinney got elected to Congress six times—and soon found herself under attack by the Israel lobby when she refused to sign the “pledge of allegiance to Israel” demanded of all representatives! The Lobby was able to eject Rep. McKinney from Congress twice, once in 2002 and again in 2006, by fabricating a primary opponent backed by the vast fortunes of the Zionist oligarchs and the tireless energy of the 500,000-footsoldier “Zionist Power Configuration” or ZPC. (For information about the ZPC, read Dr. James Petras’s The Power of Israel in the United States alongside Walt and Mearsheimer, and then check out the documentary film The Lobby.)

Israel, with its immense power in the USA, defines itself as a “Jewish state”—a state of by and for all of the world’s (racially-defined) Jewish people, but NOT a state for any of the 20% of its residents who aren’t Jewish. It is the world’s only remaining officially racist, apartheid nation.

So are we allowed to discuss what “Jewish state” means? Can we explore the historical, psychological, and cultural factors that led to the Zionist colonization of Palestine? The Zionist Power Configuration says “no way!” According to the ZPC and its attack-dog ADL, anyone who talks about such things is an “anti-Semite” and should muzzled, deplatformed, and persecuted.

In this interview Dr. McKinney bravely goes where few if any former Congressional representatives have gone before, speaking frankly about Israel’s control of the US Congress and other centers of power, and raising the taboo issue of the so-called “Jewish question.”

  1. “In this interview Dr. McKinney”…what interview? Where is it?

    The answer is!

  3. How sad and foolish to hear Dr. McKinney buy into the white privilege narrative.

    Does she think that all those Irishmen and Germans who got sucked into- and killed in Jewish wars for the unique benefit of Jews are beneficiaries of White Privilege?

    USA whites are British, German, Irish, Italian, Slavic & other.
    How many of these migrated to US well after 1862?
    How many of these were slave owners?

    Stupid strategy, Cynthia.
    Unless, of course, you think the Blacks-as-victims movement is
    a. a grass roots movement and not manipulated by — wait for it — Jews;
    b. capable of reforming American society in the Constitutional principles you so vigorously endorse, by dividing whites off from Blacks.

  4. Swing at the Catholic Church!

    Way to go, McKinney; lop off another 1.2 billion people. Who needs 1.2 billion people in a coalition when we got Bangladesh.

    You are aware, surely, that the Vatican has been infiltrated by Jews or their acolytes — in specific instance, Juan Zarate, one of Stuart Levey’s “guerrillas in grey suits” who roamed about the world seeking the ruin of economies that resisted zionist domination — aren’t you?

    Or are you so wrapped up in black victimhood that you don’t realize that the zionists are just as firmly entrenched in Catholic institutions as they are in US institutions as you detailed in the first part of your conversation — when you were still sane.

    The root of the problem is that we’re not allowed to talk about the problem. A supremacist tribe of chosenite elites with the protected status of eternal victims that can never be criticized by anyone, have taken over everything. We are forced to treat these psychopaths as innocent victims, the truth about who they really are has been rendered hate speech, and so any serious discussion of geopolitics and history is now impossible.

  9. Unfortunately Barrett is a gatekeeper, a very weird left/right amalgam person whose deepest desire is for an Islamic caliphate in the west. I wonder why then he bothers talking to a woman. As for McKinney, she should be given credit for reaching out to Brendan O’Connell, who has made the single most urgently important disclosure re: Israel and the zionists — the entire surveillancescape will be run from Israel, not the US. Did you all notice Microsoft, with headquarters now moving to Tel Aviv, got the Pentagon cloud contract? This tells me everything I need to know about this zionist power. Bad bad news. O’Connell, like an idiot, blew her off. She could have gone further in her understanding, so she wouldn’t keep falling back onto whitey whitey whitey. But every black person in America thinks white people are the cause of their problems. Their politics is sad and hopeless. They are unfortunately just zionist useful idiots.

    I directly submitted a question to Barrett when he had a conference with Zabroski and Giraldi present about the Holohoax and he refused to submit that question to them as moderator. He keeps saying about Holooax: well we just don’t know. Anyone who knows anything about it knows that is a lie.

    So Barrett: limited hangout. McKinney: still doesn’t understand zionist power.

    I understand your consternation upon interpreting some of the comments Ms. McKinney makes in this interview with regard to historical relations between white and black Americans as playing the “race-card/white-privilege” thing. I would be highly disappointed in her, too, if I thought that was her main premise. But your blowing her perfunctory comments on historical race relations way out of proportion with respect to the rest (and main parts) of her political commentary. This may be, perhaps, because you’re not very familiar with her political career and experiences. No black politician or celebrity of any note would have dared openly defy Israel and its hasbara ilk in the US by taking part in a flotilla sailing to the middle east to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza (for which, of course, she was captured and held by the Israelis). Those type of black folk exclusively stay in their “race” lane and are unabashedly beholden to Jewish power for whatever prestige and wealth they imagine they possess.

    I’ve always regarded Cynthia McKinney as one of the great political activists of contemporary times. If you know anything of her political career and stances, you will realize that her primary guiding principle has been making material the grand ideals of the US constitution for all Americans (as she asserted in this interview). You will also note that her political career was destroyed for refusing to pledge allegiance to Israel and Jewish zionism – unlike virtually the entirety of her congressional colleagues…black, white, or other. She has militated against the stranglehold that Zionist Jews have on all of our social institutions and the detrimental impact of this power on America and all its peoples. Unlike, say, virtually all members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), “race” politics was never at the core of her political concerns. Her political principles were, and still are, nationalistic and all-inclusive. Her political career went up in flames for standing up to “power” on behalf of the American people (not just blacks). In fact, it was often insinuated that she, as a black politician and woman, to boot, was over-stepping her “bounds” by not simply sticking to “race” matters, as virtually all other black politicians (particularly of the democrat persuasion) do.

    If you listen closely to the discussion, she makes clear that there is nothing more she’d like to see than black and white (and other) Americans coalescing to fight against the Jewish zionists (and their goyim puppets) who have eaten away at the core values of the US constitution and American society from within. But she asks, as she says her black friends remind her, why should blacks throw their lot in with whites that they cannot trust to uphold the principles of mutual respect and dignity between the races in the process of turning back this threat to all Americans who believe in and wish to re-root our society in the ideals of the constitution?

    The question is not without validity. Of course, white immigrants of the 19th and early 20th centuries, by and large, had nothing to do with black slavery. But they did ignite the anti-black Draft Riots of the civil war era. They did indeed vigorously condone and participate in Jim Crow-ism throughout most of the 20th century. And indeed, the Unz review is chock-full of fairly influential writers(at least among a cadre of disaffected whites) that would love nothing more than to see Jim Crow re-instituted in the US! These writers (excepting one or two) will go far out of their way to avoid pointing any fingers at the Jewish zionist element really at the root of the problems they rail against – putting the blame for everything they see wrong entirely on blacks, migrants, queers, etc., instead of on the not-so-hidden puppet masters behind these tectonic disturbances in contemporary America. How cowardly! While Cynthia McKinney has the balls and humanity to point the finger at the real culprits, these cowards wouldn’t dare lift a finger, much less point it in the direction it should be aimed.

    So given all this, why wouldn’t the question of “trust” be a legitimate one? But again, if you heard her out, she asks for and seeks solutions to these historical “trust” issues in order to unite American society and its peoples to fight the cancer devouring the body-politic from the inside out. There is no chance of abating the deterioration without that kind of common understanding as a unifying catalyst. The historical narrative to which Ms. McKinney briefly refers, and which Americans (both black and white) seem so reluctant to distance themselves from, certainly exacerbates the problem. In fact, observing much of the product of the media complex (entertainment and news), and education system, one might even assert that making contemporary that which belongs to a distant place and time is a deliberate vector in the “divide and conquer” strategy we see in effect today. And right now, there is little evidence that Americans are willing and able to overcome themselves to save themselves in that regard.

    Very few are as “woke” as they may think themselves to be. If people were, there might be common understanding of the real threats to our society, and reasonable proposals for dealing with these threats. Any ideas? Cynthia McKinney is searching high and low for answers. So am I.

    Sun Tzu’s Art of War would have never thought of this scheme. You hit on the nail. That is their strength, you can’t talk about them, examine them or say anything bad about what they do and did in the entire history of their time on earth.

    They are like Catholic saints in churches. We should make idols of Jewish figures, and put them in a church like building. Go in, bow down and worship them. What would they say? This is what we have been taught endlessly to do for the last hundred years. They never ever do anything wrong. They are saints so make idols of them and worship them.

    Many people are seeing through this though,now. So this Jewish Idol church, is not going to come to pass. The fact (hate) speech bans are an attempt to stop the flow of information that our Jewish saints are not saints after all.

    Excellent discussion. I’m one of those idiot neocons who let Rush and Fox define McKinney for me, with their selected soundbytes.

    After I unplugged the TV in 2011 I was cured of neoconism, but I hadn’t bothered to recheck McKinney. With an objective interviewer like Kevin, she comes across as a precise and coherent intellectual and a sane and sensible human being.

    I’m sorry that I let the neocons control my inputs for so long! I was missing a lot of good people and good thinking.

  20. Whether we adore, respect or detest her, we ought to accept that she is whining about far too much all at the same time. Here is Obama on the issue – ………… Plus McKinney has said amazingly dumb stuff in the past and her opinions about Gaza are garbage.

    Apartheid is good, and inevitable, in any nation that protects its borders and finds itself with minorities within those borders.
    Iran has apartheid too but pretends it’s religious, not racial (but it’s really racial; Aryans against Arabistanis). India has a whole religion of apartheid, a caste system, but pretends it’s cultural.
    Israel is just honest about it.
    Unz is only bothered that Jews are allowed to do what Europeans aren’t.

    Us, goyim, are in awe of your superiority. We love to be continuously fooled and humiliated by such worthier ethnic cabal. Please continue posting your so subtle comments to further open everbody’s eyes.

    Unsurprisingly, you have universal civilizational values upside down.

    European people are highly civilised and refrain from hurting vulnerable minorities.

    Israeli are savages who enjoy torturing and killing the most defenceless, lack of being able to show any such courage in front of simple para-military militia such as Hezbollah.

  24. Anon[272] • Disclaimer says:

    Unz is only bothered that Jews are allowed to do what Europeans aren’t.

    When Jews are a major force reinforcing that hypocritical double standard (Jews specialize in the double standard as they play hobbled victim), the entirety of the sane non-Jewish West is similarly “bothered” to put it mildly.

    You aren’t exactly making a point.

    Below is an important question and answer, which reveals timeless wisdom, that every non-Jewish man must keep in mind and pass on inter-generationally:

    How does one identify the Devil?

    By his eternal limp, which he gained upon being cast down from Heaven.

  26. Richard B says:

    CM is a brave and honorable person.

    But no one is anything unconditionally.

    The second she mentioned White Privilege she tied a ball and chain around her “brave and honorable person” and threw it overboard.


    Because things like White Privilege, White Supremacy, Whiteness and the rest of that stable vague abstractions, glittering generalties, and absurd absolutes, come from the very people she was showing off her “bravery” and “honor” by attacking.

    In other words, no matter how you spin it, it’s self-discrediting.

    By the way, a Supremacist is a member of a group that has the power to effectuate their insane demands to be

    1. placed above criticism
    2. loved unconditionally
    3. blindly obeyed

    There are supremacists in the West.

    But they’re not White.

    Listening to her conversation, I see that she did not mean it as something that is happening now.

    She said Jews from Eastern Europe were able to embed themselves in all top places in the US because of their light skin. They couldn’t have done it if they were Ethiopian Jews, for instance.

    So, I agree that Whites (Caucasians) do not have any real privilege these days in the US at all.

    CM,also, wasn’t implying that it is the case these days. She is shocked how Zion Privilege is everywhere in the US. She is trying to untangle the reasons that it is the case these days. Most importantly, she is searching how to free us of this Zion privilege that is destroying the US and the world, since the US is the Golem for Israel.

    China and East Asia may never be fully controlled by Zion power since they are not Caucasian. Jewish Caucasians can never fully embed themselves in those nations.

    A commenter named Malla, noted that Jews love settling in nations with large Christian European origin populations . For instance, many Jews settled in Argentina.They did not settle in large numbers in the more Indian or Mestizo nations of Latin America. In Africa, they immigrated to South Africa, again a nation with a large Christian European origin population.

    Honduras is an exception to this rule. Honduras, is an example of Jews embedding themselves in a nation with a small European origin population. It is mostly Mestizo. The Jews in this case, embedded themselves in the top positions which were of people who were mostly of Christian European origin.

  28. Go to the *Arab Citizens of Israel* sites – Wikipedia is a reasonably good starting point – and you will see that some Arab citizens of Israel have become (1) a Major-General of the Israeli Defense Forces (20 a Lt-General of the I.D.F. (3) an Ambassador to Finland and – not least – (4) a Miss Israel.
