The Way Life Should Be? Vol. VIII: In Case the Cleaning Lady Has Found My Head
“According to neo-classical economic theories, income inequality is not a problem – ‘because the rich can invest in new business that generates more jobs and so on’ – and thereby everybody gains…Problem is – This is not what has happened. To a very large extent the 5% very rich have instead invested in speculation within the finance sector or credit-activity for the other 95% and thus only increased the debt – creating, more or less, a ‘Perpetuum-Mobile’…When looking at the income gap it is almost ‘scary’ how well the macro-economic model used for the last 30 years fits with the income-gap development during the same period. Productivity per employee has increased considerably during this period, but wages have not. Profits and remunerations to corporate executives on the other hand have increased enormously and the income gap has never been wider.”-Soren Andersson
“Just heard there’s an ICE checkpoint in Hollywood, just a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies, and landscapers a ride home tonight…”-Amber Heard
The most vociferous supporters of mass immigration into the United States are almost to a person among the nation’s most privileged. The advocates who proclaim their support for “social justice” in Maine are no different, but far from their motives being pure, they desire the importation of a new serf class of hyper-consumers with lower IQs, high time preference, and a greater willingness to work for low wages in poor conditions. As we shall see in an upcoming installment of this series, however, the latter isn’t always the case, which creates a problem the ruling class has, for now at least, the ability to solve. The establishment machinery is entirely geared toward the entrenchment, perpetuation, and expansion of neo-liberalism, which necessitates breaking down any obstacles to the free movement of people, goods, and capital. Along with the exponential growth model, this is the defining characteristic of neo-liberalism. Any appeals to humanity or compassion or invocations of the Holocaust are mere sophistry. In addition to the profit motive, the Jewish contingent of the “elite” has the added motivation to enact their bizarre revenge fantasies on whites through immigration, certainly, but also through other mechanisms such as legal warfare, censorship, and various other anarcho-tyrannical practices. We now continue to investigate the Gordian knot of Jewish ethno-religious in-group advancement at the expense of cohesive white societies and the false god of neo-liberal capitalism, using Maine as a microcosm.
In 2015, Portland, Maine was one of 44 communities selected for the Gateways for Growth Challenge, designed by the Partnership for a New American Economy and Welcoming America, which aims to “develop multi-sector strategic plans for attracting, retaining, and integrating immigrants and international talent..” Though it is a cliché to mention George Soros, it’s a cliché in the same way the Rothschilds are—deservedly so. Welcoming America is, in fact, backed by Soros money, as mentioned in a previous piece. Their companion organization in the Gateways for Growth Challenge, the Partnership for a New American Economy (NAE), was founded by the Jewish billionaire Michael Bloomberg and is helmed by Bloomberg’s chief policy advisor and Everytown for Gun Safety president John Feinblatt (also Jewish). Its primary purpose is to use its media influence to artificially create “support” for their anti-American policies and to lobby for increased immigration from the Third World and for more H-1B visas, thereby securing cheap labor for its members and ready consumers for their products. NAE also lobbies Congress and the White House to enact legislation which will “create a path to legal status for all undocumented immigrants now in the United States.” In addition to cheap labor and a higher-time-preference population/market, new ethnic lobbies can be counted on to increase political clout for certain key players and the Jews get a multi-cultural shield with which to operate behind and manipulate for their purposes. In light of this information, it’s little surprise NAE counts the following individuals among its members:
· Disney CEO Bob Iger
· Democratic Presidential Candidate Julian Castro
· Democratic Presidential Candidate Cory Booker
· Silver Lake Partners co-founder Glenn H. Hutchins
· Oracle CEO Mark Hurd
· Boeing Chairman Jim McNerney
· News Corporation Chairman, CEO, and founder Rupert Murdoch

You might have noticed a lot of those people are Jewish. You might also have noticed that some of the communities most impacted by “refugee resettlement,” such as Minneapolis-St. Paul, are also present on that list. That is, unfortunately, just a small sampling. Also represented, among a slew of politicians, are current and former CEOs of companies and organizations such as JetBlue, Hewlett-Packard, Delta Airlines, Freeland Construction, Cabrera Capital Markets, Xerox, Barber Foods, Allstate Insurance, CW Biofuels, Time Warner, A Second Chance Immigration Services, Maverick Capital, Grooveshark, the Jones Group, Challa Immigration Law Offices, American Express, Chipotle, Western Union, PetSmart, Quicken Loans, Geiger, the Rockefeller Group, Continental Grains, Overstock, MetLife, LinkedIn, Weight Watchers, Eli Lilly, Esteé Lauder, Macy’s, Liz Claiborne, McGraw-Hill, Quest Diagnostic, Liberty-Mutual, Mi Ranchito Tortilla Chip Company, Adobe, Citigroup, General Mills, Zagat, Gaylord Entertainment, Rose Immigration Law Firm, Foursquare, Saks Fifth Avenue, Cummins, Fairchild Semiconductor, and Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
Still thinking a boycott is going to work?
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Dana Connors, President of the Maine Chamber of Commerce, is a member of the Partnership for a New American Economy as well. You may be interested to learn that the Maine Chamber of Commerce counts among its board representatives from Jackson Labs, TD Bank, Tyson Foods, IDEXX Labs, LL Bean, Nestlé Waters (more on them in a future piece), Purdue University Global, United Insurance, AT&T, Pratt & Whitney, Bank of America, Unum, and Texas Instruments. Also present are our old friends Bernstein Shur and Verrill Dana (James I. Cohen). Now to be fair not everyone on the Board is going to be an immigration advocate, or even aware of what’s going on, but for the major players, at least, we see their names recurring constantly.
Although NAE and Welcoming America are the principal partners in the Gateways for Growth Challenge, the J. M. Kaplan Fund has also lent financial support. The fund is named after its founder, “philanthropist, merchant, and self-made financier” Jacob Merrill Kaplan. In his day he was a major financier of the NAACP and various other “civil rights” causes. Kaplan’s fund was used as a front by the CIA, which is so weird it warrants its own piece, or perhaps an episode of The Cocktail Hour (shameless plug, I know). Today, the fund is primarily concerned with “combatting climate change” (which as we know is just a euphemism for the consolidation of resource control and speculation) and “mitigating the impact of the criminal justice system on youth, people of color, and immigrant communities.” In Volume III of this project I had mentioned NAE’s fall 2012 partnership with the Maine Association for New Americans (MANA), which:
has been active not only in combatting anti-Muslim and anti-Islam sentiment but also in working to overcome stereotypes and racial discrimination leading to underemployment for (primarily Black) immigrants. Currently, many Black (African) immigrants -- despite high-level career experience and English skills -- are being placed in cleaning and other manual jobs once they arrive in Maine. MANA has presented employers and other stakeholders with compelling data that contradicts the concept of immigrants as natural-born “service recipients”. Rather, we turn this idea on its head by, among other things: pointing out the latent talent and economic power of these (primarily African) immigrants; showing how harnessing and growing this talent can effectively close Maine’s workforce gaps, and linking the barriers we see in Maine to cultural nativism, implicit bias (See Implicit.Harvard.edu) and national research on racial bias in hiring. In Spring 2016, MANA leaders took the initiative to lead a statewide “Welcoming Committee, bringing together immigrant leaders with the Maine State Chamber, Maine Development Foundation, CEI, and corporate partners such as Jackson Labs, that is now working with Welcoming America and the Partnership for a New American Economy to build momentum in Maine towards a “Welcoming Maine” initiative…MANA joined the New Mainers’ Alliance/New Mainers PAC to ensure that immigrant communities have a voice within civic, non-profit, philanthropic, and government organizations serving immigrants.
MANA’s Board is comprised of seven Africans, a representative of the Greater Portland Chamber of Commerce, and a Japanese “international marketer and diversity coach.” It appears to be one of those “shield” organizations that runs cover for Judaic practices.
Another of these organizations is the Maine Development Foundation (MDF), consisting of elected board members primarily from the worlds of real estate, business, and finance, and which reliably produces “muh GDP”-oriented policy suggestions that inevitably recommend more immigration because of Maine’s age, whiteness, ad infinitum. Their partners are all the usual suspects, including Coastal Enterprises, Inc. (CEI), which recommends “an Office of New Americans to attract and integrate foreign-born populations. One option is to place the office within the Department of Labor so that immigrant integration is aligned with the state’s labor and economic development strategies.” CEI is:
A [Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI) and] mission-driven lender and investor… and acts as a labor intermediary to help low-income job seekers access employment. The organization also undertakes research and policy development to expand impact… CEI’s StartSmartProgram, which began in 1997, provides business assistance and financing to immigrants. More recently in 2014, CEI has coordinated the Portland Jobs Alliance, a City of Portland Community Development Block Grant and John T. Gorman Foundation-funded partnership of service providers who are working to prepare 200 immigrants and other low to moderate-income job seekers for employment in growing Portland businesses over a two-year period.
In a 2016 CEI paper entitled, “Building Maine’s Economy: How Maine Can Embrace Immigrants and Strengthen the Workforce,” authors Carla Dickstein, John Dorrer, Elizabeth Love, and Tae Chong conclude that, among other factors, racism and discrimination (naturally) present barriers to the exalted “people of color.” Nevertheless, the authors and CEI conclude (emphases are mine):
The urgency of Maine’s demographics and tightening labor market require immediate action to proactively attract, support, and retain immigrants…Maine’s demographic projections and labor force shortages are long-term challenges that require a strategy to develop Maine’s human capital over the long run. This includes making sure that immigrant children receive the training and skills to become productive workers… Because immigrants tend to have higher birth rates than native-born residents, they can be a dynamic component of the state’s labor force well into the future…Immigrants can also grow Maine’s economy through tax-base expansion, increased demand for goods, and business creation.
The paper’s lead author Dickstein has made at least eight separate donations to Democratic political candidates as recently as 2018. She also sits on the Research Advisory Board to the Community Affairs Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. The authors consulted and relied on subjective data from Dr. Paula Gerstenblatt, a “Jewish mother of two black children,” from the University of Southern Maine. Primary funding for their paper was obtained from the Emanuel and Pauline Lerner Foundation, of which the Jewish Eliot Cutler is president, and the Broad Reach Foundation. Andrea Perry and Erin Cinelli of Broad Reach and the Lerner Foundation, respectively, serve on the Maine Philanthropy Center Board of Directors under Chair John Shoos of the Sam L. Cohen Foundation. The Sam L. Cohen Foundation—committed to “philanthropy, Tzedakah for Tikum Olam, and Jewish culture and traditions”—has an endowment of over thirty-two million dollars and an annual income of almost three million. The Sam L. Cohen Foundation’s Board of Directors includes:
EDWARD K SIMENSKY CPA, DIRECTOR TREASURER
ELINOR MILLER, DIRECTOR
JEFFREY A NATHANSON ESQ, DIRECTOR PRESIDENT
JEROME F GOLDBERG ESQ, DIRECTOR CHAIR
JOHN SHOOS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
KENNETH SPIRER, DIRECTOR
SHERRY P BRODER ESQ, DIRECTOR SECRETARY
I’ll let you “do the math” on most of those names. In addition to the Cohen Foundation’s deep involvement in the Jewish community, it also “provid[es] support to historically and systematically disadvantaged individuals and communities” and is a primary financier of the Immigrant and Refugee Funders Group. Other organizations that have been the recipients of the Foundation’s largesse include: Catholic Charities of Maine, African Women Development, the Congregation Etz Chaim, the ACLU of Maine, Documenting Maine Jewry, Maine Family Planning Abortion Aid, Planned Parenthood, Greater Portland Workforce Initiative, Equality Maine, the Greater Portland Immigrant Welcome Center, Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine, Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project, Maine Equal Justice Partners, the Maine Jewish Museum, Maine Jewish Film Festival, Maine Access Immigrant Network (MAIN), New Mainers’ Tenants Association, Shalom House, the Maine Center for Economic Policy, the University of Southern Maine, and the University of Maine School of Law. The University of Maine School of Law, which received $125,000 from the Sam L. Cohen Foundation last year and $500,000 in 2017, in turn uses its infusion of cash to sponsor events such as the Justice for Women Lecture Series in conjunction with the Maine Jewish Film Festival and Empower the Immigrant Women, as well as the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition (MIRC) and several of the state’s private colleges. The lecture series engages in naked political advocacy as well as endeavors to:
Raise awareness about issues of justice for women and girls in Maine including:
the importance of welcoming New Mainers into our communities, our schools, and our homes
the impact of federal policies on our lives in Maine
the blight that is food insecurity among Maine's children
the need for respect for Mainers of all religions and cultures
the rights of women and girls within the Muslim religion
ONE GLOBAL VOICE.
This one global voice cries out for cheap consumer products and access to white countries. Any barrier to their entry is highly problematic, as Dickstein, et al. explicate in their CEI paper, because it presents a major obstacle to neo-liberalism’s Jew-DP utopia:
In this 95% white state, “implicit,” and even explicit, bias exists and creates barriers to cultivating and embracing increased diversity. Affirmatively addressing racism and discrimination at the workplace, in schools, and in society as a whole will be an important part of any Maine effort to attract, integrate, and retain immigrants from around the world. Maine’s approach will ultimately define its competitive advantage (or disadvantage) in the U.S. and global economy. The purpose of this study is to understand how Maine can better use the human capital that immigrants— one category of a diverse, multicultural population—bring to the state. Immigrants are one of a number of groups of unemployed or underemployed Mainers who could contribute more to their communities if given an opportunity to work at their full potential.
It should be mentioned that affiliated with this particular paper were the University of Southern Maine, SIGCO (40% of whose labor force is comprised of immigrants), Bates College, IDEXX, Portland Refugee Services, Catholic Charities, and Portland Adult Education and New Mainers Resource Center. CEI’s Dickstein, it should be noted, is also on the Advisory Council of the Frances Perkins Center for social justice, outreach, and advocacy, along with such figures as Jewish registered Democrat and University of Southern Maine Women and Gender Studies and Economics Professor Susan Feiner, Jewish former Secretary of Labor and UC Berkeley Professor Robert Reich, and Jewish Executive Director of Family Values @ Work Ellen Bravo; Jews Charles M. Wyzanski and Judith Goldstein are on the Board of Directors. CEI’s Board includes: Glenn Cummings, the President of the University of Southern Maine; John Dorrer, one of the paper’s co-authors (no conflict of interest there); Ian Yaffe, Executive Director of Mano en Mano; Beth Mattingly, of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston; and other representatives from various private equity firms, construction companies, farms, and universities. Beth Stickney, director of the Maine Business Immigration Coalition, was also consulted for the paper, and is of the view that should immigrants or refugees not be welcomed or offered financial assistance in Maine, this shortsighted and counterproductive decision would harm a state facing an aging population and workforce shortage. But you knew that already.
 Some readers may be aware that the team’s previous owner, Donald Sterling, was banned from the NBA for life for making “racist comments” by Jewish commissioner Adam Silver, who then facilitated the deal to sell the team to the Jewish Steve Ballmer in a very suspicious manner. Don’t feel too bad for Sterling, though—the Ashkenazi Sterling, whose real last name is Tokowitz, still has a net worth of almost $4 billion. Still, this highlights the fact that there are no “crimes” more egregious in modern America than “racism.” Tokowitz was just the sacrificial lamb here; the NBA is 75% black and its ownership—which banned the use of the term “owner” for its “racist connotations”—is very Jewish and does not want to invite any scrutiny.
 I cannot independently verify whether Perry’s partner at Broad Reach, Deb Felder, is Jewish, but the contextual evidence I’ve been able to find suggests that she is.
 The Maine Access Immigrant Network (MAIN): was originally founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) by Mohamud Barre and the resettled Somali community. The organization was initially named Somali Culture and Development Association and its mission was to embrace the vision of a free standing community center with staffing to support all Somalis for access to information, resources and services. It was formally renamed to Maine Access Immigrant Network in spring 2014. MAIN has since expanded to serve other African groups, including South Sudanese, Rwandan, Burundian, and Congolese, and continues to expand with services to Middle Eastern and other refugee groups…[It is] supported through grants from the Office of Refugee Resettlement Ethnic Community Self Help Grant, Maine Health Access Foundation and the Maine Community Foundation. MAIN has many partners, including the Greater Portland Refugee and Immigrant Health Collaborative, University of New England CHANNELS Project, Care Partners, MaineHealth, Mercy Hospital, and others.
 Their mission: “We need to ensure that the benefits of immigration are available to all parts of the state.”
