Introduction: Pluto-Zionism is the three-way marriage of plutocracy, rightwing Zionism and US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, a serial war criminal, racist and servant of Wall Street. How did this deadly ménage-a-trois come about?

The answer is that a stratospherically wealthy donor group, dedicated to promoting Israel’s dominance in the Middle East and deepening US military intervention in the region, has secured Clinton’s unconditional support for Tel Aviv’s ambitions and, in exchange, Hilary receives scores of millions to finance her Democratic Party foot soldiers and voters for her campaign.

Pluto-Zionism and Clinton

Pluto-Zionists comprise the leading financial backers of Clinton. Her million-dollar backers, among the most powerful financiers and media moguls in America, include: George Soros ($6 million), Marc Benioff, Roger Altman, Steven Spielberg, Haim and Cheryl Saban ($3 million and counting), Jeffrey Katzenberg, Donald Sussman, Herb Sandler, Jay and Mark Pritzker, S. Daniel Abraham ($1 million), Bernard Schwartz, Marc Lasry, Paul Singer, David Geffen, Fred Eychaner, Norman Braman and Bernie Marcus. Waiting in the wings are the Republican billionaire ‘king-makers’, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, the Koch brothers as well as the ‘liberal’ multi-billionaire, Michael Bloomberg who had contributed $11 million in 2012 elections. These erstwhile Republican funders are increasing frightened by the anti-‘free trade and anti-intervention’ rhetoric of their party’s front-runner, Donald Trump, and are approaching the solidly pro-Israel, pro-war and pro-Wall Street candidate, Madame Clinton.

Israeli-First Ideologues and Clinton

In addition to the powerful Pluto-Zionists, a vast army of ‘Israel-First’ ideologues is behind Clinton, including ‘veteran’ arm-chair war mongers like Victoria Nuland Kagan, Donald and Robert Kagan, Robert Zoellick, Michael Chertoff, Dov Zakheim among so many other promoters of Washington’s continuous wars on many fronts. Ms Nuland-Kagan, as US Undersecretary of State for East European Affairs, openly bragged about using hundreds of millions of dollars of US taxpayer money to finance the right-wing Ukrainian coup. Michael Chertoff, as head of Homeland Security after 9/11, jailed thousands of innocent Muslims while freeing five Israeli-Mossad agents arrested by the FBI for suspected involvement or pre-knowledge of the attacks in New York after they were seen filming the collapse of the towers and celebrating the event from a warehouse rooftop in New Jersey!).

Pluto-Zionists and the Israel-First ideologues support Ms Clinton as a reward for her extraordinary military and economic activities on behalf of Tel Aviv’s quest for regional dominance. Her accomplishments for the Jewish State include the promotion of full-scale wars, which have destroyed Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan; economic sanctions and blockade against Iran (she threatened to ‘obliterate Iran’ in 2007; and her own repeatedly stated unconditional support for Israel’s devastation against the people imprisoned in Gaza, which has cost thousands of civilian lives and rendered hundreds of thousands homeless. (In a letter to her ‘banker’, Haim Saban, Hillary stated: “Israel didn’t teach Hamas (the people of Gaza) a harsh enough lesson last year”).

Clinton versus Trump: ‘Moderation’ is in the Eyes of the Deceiver

The Pluto-Zionists, Israel-First ideologues, the US mass media and their acolytes on Wall Street and the Republican and Democratic Party elite are all on a rampage against the wildly popular Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, labeling him as ‘a danger to everything America stands for. (sic)’ Apart from savaging his persona, the anti-Trump chorus contrast his ‘extremism’ with warmonger Clinton’s ‘pragmatism’.

A careful examination of the facts reveals who is the ultra-extremist and who deals with reality:


Madame Clinton’s much touted wars against the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya have killed and maimed hundreds of thousands of women and children and uprooted millions of households. This bloody and undeniable record of mayhem was cited by Donald Trump when he argued that his policies would be much better for women than the Feminist Clinton’s had been.

So far, Trump’s worst offenses against women are his crude rhetorical misogynist quips, which pale before Hillary’s bloody record of devastation.


Clinton is backed by the leading black politicians who have long fed out of the Democratic Party patronage trough while selling the Clintons to the black electorate as ardent protectors of civil rights. In fact, as Steve Lendman has written, Hillary had referred to marginalized black youth as “super predators (with) no conscience, no empathy”. During her husband Bill’s presidency, she was on record supporting his draconian ‘three strikes’ crime laws, leading to the mass incarceration of hundreds of thousands of young blacks; and she backed his ‘welfare reform’ program, which shredded the social safety net for the poor and forced millions of impoverished mothers to work for sub-poverty wages, further eroding the stability of black female-headed households. On the African front, ‘Sister’ Secretary of State Hillary’s war on Libya led to the displacement, rape and murder of tens of thousands of black women of sub-Saharan origin at the hands of her jihadi war-lord allies. Millions of black sub-Saharan migrants had lived and worked in Gadhafi’s Libya for years, tens of thousands becoming Libyan citizens. They endured the horror of rampant ethnic cleansing in Clinton’s ‘liberated’ Libya.

Trump, at worst, has done nothing of direct harm to African Americans and remains an enigma on black issues. He opposes Clinton’s war on Libya and has vividly blamed her policies as responsible for the chaos and human misery in post-NATO bombing Libya.


Under the Obama-Clinton administration almost 2 million Latino immigrants have been seized from their homes and workplaces, separated from their families and summarily expelled. As Madame Secretary of State, Clinton backed the Honduran military coup that overthrew the elected government of President Zelaya and led directly to assassination of over three hundred activists, including feminist, indigenous, human rights and environmental leaders, like Berta Caceres. Clinton actively backed unsuccessful coups against the democratically elected Bolivian and Venezuelan governments.


Trump has verbally threated to extend and deepen the Obama-Clinton expulsion of whatever remains of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrant Latino workers after Obama’s expulsion of the 2 million and the hundreds of thousands who have voluntarily gone home. His ‘extremist’ vision is completely in line with that of his allegedly ‘pragmatic’ opponent whose State Department promoted the destruction of so many Latino families in the US.

Foreign Policy

Clinton has launched or promoted more simultaneous wars than any Secretary of State in US history. She was the leading force behind the US bombing of Libya and the brutal ‘regime change’ that has fractured that nation. She promoted the military escalation in Iraq, backed the violent seizure of power in Ukraine, ‘engineered’ the military build-up (pivot to Asia) against China and negotiated the continued presence of thousands of US troops in Afghanistan.

Clinton has repeatedly pledged to her supporter Haim Saban and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu that she will give Israel with “all the necessary military, diplomatic, economic and moral support it needs to vanquish Hamas” regardless of the many thousands of Palestinian civilian casualties. The ‘pragmatic feminist’ Hillary is a fervent supporter of the Saudi despotism and its genocide war against the popular forces in Yemen. Hillary tried to pressure President Obama to send US ground troops into Syria. She promotes the continuation of harsh trade sanctions against Russia.

Trump opposes any further direct US intervention in the Middle East. During his debate in South Carolina, he repeatedly denounced President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq – as based on ‘deliberate lies to the American people’, to the shock and horror of the Republican Party elite. He has rejected Pluto-Zionist financing, arguing that only as an independent ‘honest broker’, who doesn’t take the side of Israel in its conflict with Palestinians, can he be effective in brokering a ‘deal’. He opposes sending ground troops overseas to Europe or Asia, which imposes a huge financial burden on the US taxpayers. He has gone on to suggest that European and Asian powers can and should pay for their own defense. Trump argues that the US could work with Putin against radical Islamist terrorism and he regards Russia as a potential trading partner. His anti-interventionism has been labeled as ‘isolationist’ by the Pluto-Zionist ideologues and militarist warlords holed up in their Washington think tanks, but Trump’s ‘America First’ resonates profoundly with the war-weary and economically devastated US electorate.


Clinton has totally and unconditionally pledged to widen and deepen US subordination to Israel’s war aims in the Middle East and to defend Israel’s war crimes against the Palestinian people in the occupied territories and within apartheid Israel. As a result, Clinton has built a coalition made-up of unsavory mafia-linked, gambling, media and speculator billionaires, whose first loyalty is not to America but Israel. She denounces all critics of Israel as ‘anti-Semites’.

Trump has never been a critic of Israel but he has called for greater ‘evenhandedness’, which is anathema within Zionist circles. For that reason he has not secured a single Pluto-Zionist supporter. So far, he has not been labelled an anti-Semite…. perhaps because his own daughter converted to Judaism following her marriage, but his lack of effusive philo-Zionism has him marked as ‘unreliable’ to the Jewish State. As a subterfuge for his lack of servility to Tel Aviv, Democratic Party Zionist hacks emphasize his ‘racism’ and ‘fascist’ tendencies…

The Democratic Elections: The Real Muck

Clinton currently leads Sanders for the Democratic nomination mostly on the basis of non-elected delegates, the so-called ‘super delegates’, who are party loyalists appointed by the bosses and elite politicians. Sanders’ call for a “political revolution in America” has no traction unless there is first a political revolution within the Democratic Party. But the Democratic Party is like the Augean Stable – a clean up requiring a Herculean effort and a loud pugnacious leader with a big broom. Senator Sanders is no Hercules.

As a positive beginning, Sanders has mobilized grass roots support, raised progressive health, education and tax policies that adversely affect Clinton’s billionaire Wall Street backers (Big financier Jaime Diamond called Sanders ‘the most dangerous man in America’), and secured millions of contributions from small donors. But he has failed to target and demand the exit of the Pluto-Zionists, the Wall Street bankers and speculators and venal black politicians controlling the Democratic Party. They run the elections of US presidents and will make sure Hillary Clinton secures the nomination by hook or (more likely) crook.

Clinton is backed by this formidable authoritarian (profoundly anti-democratic) electoral machine. She is totally embedded in the process. Clinton has a track record of enthusiastic support for the barbarism of torture – laughing at and cheering on the torture-death of the wounded Libyan President Gadhafi. In the pursuit of wars and war crimes, Hillary Clinton knows no limit and has borne no accountability. What makes Hillary so terrifyingly dangerous is that she could be ‘Commander in Chief’ of a great military power. While Clinton may be no Hitler, the US is vastly more engaged in world politics than Weimer Germany ever was. Her dictate would bring on global destruction.

If the Democratic primaries are as profoundly undemocratic as they have been in the past, the Republicans and their plutocrat partners are openly planning and plotting to ‘Dump the Donald’ and prevent Trump from obtaining an electoral victory. They have been discussing ways to use convention procedures to undermine a majority vote, and set up a ‘brokered convention’, where the ‘big-wigs’ jigger the delegates, rules and voting procedures behind closed doors robbing the populist front-runner of his party candidacy.


The US presidential primaries reveal in all their facets the decay and corruption of democracy in an era of imperial decline. The ascendancy of a financial oligarchy in the Democratic Party, backing a psychopathic militarist, like Hillary, cannot disguise her track record by labeling their candidate a ‘pragmatist’; the majority of Sanders supporters have no illusions about Madame Clinton. Panic and hysteria among an unsavory elite in the Republican Party and its efforts to block a sui-generis conservative Republican isolationist speaks to the fragility of imperial rule.


If the psychopathic war-monger Clinton is crowned the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, there is no way she can be considered the pragmatic ‘lesser evil’ to Donald Trump or any Republican – their bosses decide to spew out. At best, she might be the ‘equal evil’. In this case, more than 50% of the electorate will not vote. If, after being robbed of his growing movement for the Democratic Party candidacy, ‘Bernie’ Sanders does not break out with an independent bid for the White House, I will join the miniscule 1% who vote for Green Party candidate, Dr. Jill Stein.

    What a delightful starting list for the coming purge.
    Perhaps a Ramón Mercader will arise from the new

    What BS nobody who makes it past the border it deported unless they are a felon it seems. So the correct sentence should be: almost 2 million Latino illegal aliens were caught within a mile of the US border and returned to Mexico so they could try again the next night.

  4. This is an excellent overview of the present deplorable situation. I’m not sure we can survive the fascist harpy’s tenure in office. Too many turkeys are voting for harpies. The latest ‘misspeak’ about aids probably won’t do the trick. I think Stein will get a lot of votes, and, if they don’t sideline Trump, he is obviously the lesser evil in comparison with a proven war criminal.

  5. Why is it possible that such a small country and its pressure-groups have so much influence on US-politics? Why can AIPAC set US-politicians under pressure in the case of Iran etc. and why it is no theme in the mainstream-media?

    Answer: you need media-power to influence the people (“Jewish-Christian roots” etc. and showing a one-dimensional side on the Middle -East – but everything has 2 sides).If you have the media-power you need also the most imortant thing:money-power.With money you can buy simply everything or let me say 99%.Everything has its price the other ones who have a clear conscience are in a minority.

    So a small group owns money-power and media-power.After WWI and especially after WW II the US is the owner of the biggest fire-power.But is it really the owner when it always does what is not in its interest? The biggest Joke in the Middle -East would be when the US is saying about itself as “neutral” and “independend” in the case of Palestinians.

    It makes me smiling when I see visiting Israeli politicians in the US and how they are welcomed.
    In the media only positive news and views and especially one thing: the numbers of Flags.
    An average foreign head is welcomed with one flag of the US and one of the nation from the visitor.But when an Israeli comes there are many flags in 1:1 combination in the background.

    In my opinion the US is losing its status as a Democracy.There are only Republicans and Democrats (in the media) and they do what the real decisionmakers behind the scene want.Money and Media have too much influence,pressure -groups too.
    Also the election – system and counting of votes.There is no one-man one vote and no 5%-hurdle.
    I would call the US a Plutocracy and a small group is holding the remote.

    NO MONEY – NO ACCEPTANCE – Is this Ignorance legitimated Democracy?

    What would averge US- citizen say when Iran would have so much influence?
    Years ago the Iranian TV-Channel PRESS-TV was removed from the satellites to ensure the monopoly of opinion.

    In the US-media they still prefer to have since 70 or better since 100 years their most beloved enemy #1 : Germany.With these old storys everybody can cover its own dark sides of the History while in reality bad things are going on.
    Those who have Saudi-Arabia and Erdogan’s Turkey as “friends” shouldn’t wonder about a knife in the back when the time is come.Europe is flooded day by day with several thousands of their “believers”.
    Instead of working together with Russia and the Shiite Iran to fight the Sunni sponsored “moderate beheaders” /Terrorists the US is supporting them (with official “non-leathal” help) .

    USA – wake up!
    …or you become a regional super-power on the American Continent.

    My respect to the Unz-review. In my country it would be marked as “Antisemitic” and comments from the reader would not be possible because of “special laws”.

    I didn’t vote in the last three presidential elections. However, this year, if it’s Trump vs. The Pantsuited One, I’m voting for the former.

    As for me, I’m looking forward to Hillary’s indictment for High Treason, for putting America’s national security in grave danger. For the last few months, the FBI has been investigating her private unsecured server, wherein she had sent/received emails containing over 2,000 highly sensitive documents, and are compiling a report which, when completed, will forward to a Federal Grand Jury to study.
    I feel certain that Tel-Aviv has all the information gleaned from those most highly sensitive documents and are waiting for the right moment to put their knowledge of the documents’ deepest secrets to use.
    No wonder, the FBI’s been pushing for Hillary’s indictment/prosecution, in spite of her candidacy for POTUS. Should she be indicted, it would be Game Over for her campaign; and her rival – Bernie
    Sanders – would sail into the Democrat Convention with the nomination in hand.

    Mr Petras,

    You mentioned that Michael Chertoff was responsible for the release of the five dancing Israeli’s held after setting up to film the twin tower attack before it occurred, and seen dancing and high-five-ing afterwards.

    Do you know for a fact he signed the release order or are you making the assumption based on his position at homeland security ?

  10. Dear Mr. Petras,
    (and counting on the help of any The Unz Review staff member who happens to read this)

    I have somewhat different views from you. In the case of this article, although I converge in matters of foreign policy, I diverge in matters of domestic policy. Crime cannot be solved with social policies alone. This is not a matter of racism. Anyway, as I am not an American citizen, America’s foreign policy matters a lot more to me than domestic one. Aside from these considerations, I beg you to correct a typo which considerably changes the meaning I suppose you intended: in ‘free trade and anti-intervention’ the closing quotation mark should be placed after the word _trade_, not after _intervention_ . Thank you!

    Why I’m becoming a Jew and why you should, too-NICK COHEN

    More of Cohen “it’s not just that, if you are middle class and fortunate, you might experience racism for the first time, which in itself would be a “learning experience” worth having. You might also learn the essential lesson that antisemitism is not about Jews. Like rape, it’s about power.

    Whether the antisemitic conspiracy theory is deployed by German Nazis or Arab dictators, French anti-Dreyfusards or Saudi clerics, the argument is always the same.”
    Some more from Cohen :” I could describe at vitriolic length how disgusted leftwing Jewish friends are that Labour members chose Jeremy Corbyn, despite his support for an Anglican cleric who linked to extremist sites that blamed Jews for 9/11, ”

  12. Rehmat says:

    Hillary Clinton told Americans where her loyalty stand during her speech at the AIPAC conference a few days ago.

    Hillary said American leaders needed to show loyalty to Israel and “anyone who doesn’t understand that has no business being our president.”

    Hillary Clinton has Jewish family roots and her daughter is married to a Zionist Jew.

    “From the man who married her grandmother to the man who married her daughter, from working room full of bar mitzvah guests on behalf of her husband’s political career to heading major pro-Israel events during her own, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s journey has never wandered far from Jews,” Ron Kampeas, The Jewish Daily Forward, June 24, 2015.

    I never doubted the above truth when Hillary was overjoyed at brutal murder of Libyan leader Qaddafi, saying: We came, we saw, he died. I remembered French “philosopher” Bernard-Henri Levy, claiming at the first conference of the French Jewish Lobby CRIF in Paris in November 2011: Qaddafi had to be removed because he became a threat to Israel.

    Hillary Clinton has already beaten his Jewish decoy Bernie Sanders in a recent poll. Sanders is a known supporter of Israel and very paranoid about Hamas and Iran.

    On December 22, 2015, Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of the Orthodox Union in an Op-Ed at The Jewish Week endorsed Hillary Clinton as the new US president, saying: I am an advocate for the former New York senator and secretary of state based on personal experience, as I have known her personally for years. In 1994, I was invited to accompany the Clintons to witness the signing of the peace treaty between Israel and Jordan. During a luncheon in Jerusalem, the then-first lady expressed an interest in Jewish doctrine, which led to an interesting discussion, including her view on the moral significance of the Akeda, the binding of Isaac. In the course of that conversation and many subsequent interactions, I came to realize that she has an extraordinary intellect, an open mind, a clear vision for the United States, and a deeply rooted friendship with Israel and the American Jewish community.

    This is the woman who compares Putin to Hitler. The mind boggles.
