The new Jewish appointments

The new Biden administration is making a big deal out of BIPOC and LGBTQIA appointments, but does not mention the group that is getting all the top appointments.

The Jewish News Syndicate reports:

Jewish Democrats are celebrating this week and with good reason. Their party is about to take back power in Washington and end the presidency of the man they all love to hate: President Donald Trump. But adding a certain frisson of pride to their touchdown dances is the number of Cabinet members, and other officials and personalities, within the new First and Second families who are Jewish.

It’s an impressive tally. Social media is awash with posts with lists of the Jewish cabinet secretaries and undersecretaries, as well as the Jewish connections of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. When placed in the broad sweep of the nation’s history, it’s an important statement about the acceptance and the accomplishments of American Jewry. A century ago or even for several decades afterward, such a number would have been inconceivable.

But it’s 2021, not 1921. Having Jews in positions of great influence is no longer such a big deal; in fact, it’s quite commonplace.

Nine Jews are in the new Senate (including the new Majority Leader) and 25 in the House of Representatives, making up more than 6 percent of the total Congress. That’s more than triple the percentage of Jews in the general population. There are also two Jews out of the nine justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. Seen in that light, a Jewish secretary of state, treasury secretary, homeland security secretary, attorney general and director of national intelligence — to name a few high-level positions— are merely a reflection of the preponderance of Jews who have risen to the top of just about every sector of American society.

Nor is it a great break from the previous administration, though that is something that many of those sharing those posts on Facebook about the Jews and Biden don’t like to talk about. The list of Jews in important positions in Trump’s administration was also impressive. But since the overwhelming majority of Jews despised Trump, there was a great deal more demonizing than kvelling going on about them on Jewish social media the last four years.

The article ends by saying that it remains to be seen whether the Biden Jews advance the interests of the Jewish people as much as the Trump Jews did, as that was a lot.

So Jews are getting all the top jobs except for Secretary of Defense, which is going to a Black Army soldier who has to get a waiver from Congress. I am sure that guy does what he told.

Ever wonder how Biden could finish last in the early primaries, but then all of sudden get endorsed by everyone as his rivals drop out? Biden made his deal with the devil.

Already, Joe Biden declares war on 'White supremacy.' I am surprised that Biden is openly using such terminology. He is not referring to Jews in top jobs. The target is White Christians, especially the ones who voted for Trump.

AP reports:

President-elect Joe Biden has tapped Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to be his assistant secretary of health, leaving her poised to become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

A pediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician general, Levine was appointed to her current post by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in 2017, making her one of the few transgender people serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide.

Wikipedia says that she was circumsized, attended Hebrew school, nad had a bar mitzvah. Oops, that has now been removed as I post this, as those things would identify her as having been a Jewish boy. That would be against the policy to respect his current gender preference. It still says that she transitioned in 2011 after fathering two kids, and divorced the mother of her kids in 2013. Except that it doesn't use the words "father" or "mother". I guess they are trying to say that he had his penis and testicles chopped off in 2011, and that he is really a transsexual. Or maybe he is an Orthodox Jew who adheres to the biblical law against castration, and just gets a thrill out of cross-dressing. Details are not given.

If we are going to celebrate someone for being trans, shouldn't we know whether he or she is a transsexual or a transgender? Apparently many of them chicken out of the surgery. We should keep track of the first appointments for each category of condition of the sex organs.

The press is listing many firsts for this administration. Maybe you would not want to take your child to a Jewish pediatrician who had himself castrated and who dresses up in women's clothes, but such people are coveted for top jobs in the Biden administration.

This sort of sickness is now being inflicted on millions, as Biden has issued an executive order requiring that any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women’s teams, women’s scholarships.

Abigail Shrier, author of “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” tweeted that Mr. Biden “unilaterally eviscerates women’s sports.”
She will probably be kicked off Twitter for saying that. Biden is already more of an authoritarian than Trump ever was. None of this would ever happen, without Jewish control of the news media.

If you don't agree with any of this, then must be a bigot or one of the other groups that the new Biden spooks will be targeting. Former CIA Director John Brennan announced:

We are now looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed, are now moving in laser like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we've seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of the country and they gain strength and it brings together an unholy alliance frequently of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, Nativists, even libertarians.
You could be sent to a re-education camp.

Update: Here is the rundown on the cabinet and cabinet-level appointments:

8 white Catholics (4 of them Irish), 7 Jews, 5 blacks, 4 Hispanics (one of them Jewish), 2 Asians, and nobody 100% white Protestant.
The NY Times says the "cabinet ... fulfills Mr. Biden’s campaign promise to select a team that “looks like America” ". No, not when a third of Americans are White Protestants.

as usual... mostly lies. from a 2017 PRRI report: “ White evangelical Protestants are in decline—along with white mainline Protestants and white Catholics. White evangelical Protestants were once thought to be bucking a longer trend, but over the past decade their numbers have dropped substantially. Fewer than one in five (17%) Americans are white evangelical Protestant, but they accounted for nearly one-quarter (23%) in 2006. Over the same period, white Catholics dropped five percentage points from 16% to 11%, as have white mainline Protestants, from 18% to 13%.” personally, i’ll be happy when they’re all gone.

I found your source. What is your quibble?

Your source says: "Today, only 43% of Americans identify as white and Christian, and only 30% as white and Protestant. In 1976, roughly eight in ten (81%) Americans identified as white and identified with a Christian denomination, and a majority (55%) were white Protestants."

Are you quibbling with my statement that "a third of Americans are White Protestants"? Are you saying it is 30%, rather than 33%? It says Jews are about 2%.

In addition, it says that 24% are religiously unaffiliated, but that the great majority of them are not atheists or agnostics. A lot of those are probably White Protestants who do not belong to a particular church.
