The Moguls Of Hollywood

By Gulam Asgar Mitha

30 March, 2010

On 23 August 2008, Countercurrents had published my article “One World, If You Will”. http://www.countercurrents.org/mitha230808.htm. The title of the article was not mine but borrowed from David Rockefeller’s 2002 memoirs “The Proud Internationalists”. David Rockefeller admitted, in very subtle manner, that he is proud of the charges against him and others of conspiring to build an integrated global economic and political structure, one world, if you will. The article was a summary of the energy, financial and banking empires that the Rockefeller and Stillman families, J.P. Morgan, Joseph Bear, Robert Stearns, Harold Mayer, Marcus Goldman, Samuel Sachs and others are attributed with and the complex integrated matrix that enslaves us through a network of wheeling dealing. If that is not a conspiracy, then I fear I’m guilty of fabrication as much as David Rockefeller is guilty of being an arrogant and a proud internationalist.

“Infinite money forms the sinews of war." So stated the Roman philosopher & statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC). How true, even today. The modern US is a mirror reflection of ancient Rome in so many ways. No one has, more brilliantly, provided the comparison than Cullen Murphy in his book Are We Rome? The Decline of an Empire and the Fate of America. And as Paul Craig Roberts correctly put it in his article Truth Has Fallen and Taken Liberty with it that Americans are ruled by propaganda and wherever one looks truth has fallen to money.

A vision has to have a cultural foundation and to enforce the culture requires propaganda. Enter communication. My article, One World, If You Will, also briefly summarized the integrated honeycomb of the communication media that is continuously putting out propaganda news that makes us believe what the internationalists would like us to believe. They brainwash us to elect who they want elected or rig elections; wage and justify wars; occupy nations in the name of a sham democracy; formulate a labyrinth of legislation and set up a security council to control nations from the towers of the United Nations on land donated by John D. Rockefeller Jr; destroy religions and cultures; kill and maim innocent men, women and children with the bombs their factories turn out; create the behemoth of terrorism and then send armies to fight the terrorists and, plunder and loot wealth through creation of the IMF and the World Bank among others. They are the Proud Internationalists that some even call Zionists or neo-cons.

Somehow one aspect of the propaganda machinery I’d forgotten to investigate was Hollywood. I knew Hollywood was part of a propaganda but seriously did not know who controlled this machine till I accidentally read an article in the Los Angeles Times of 19 December 2008 titled Jews Totally Run Hollywood by Joel Stein. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-stein19-2008dec19,0,4676183.column. Mr. Stein named Brad Grey Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures, Michael Lynton Chairman Sony Pictures (worked with Gary Ginsberg and Jay Sanderson to compile an annual list of the "50 Most Influential Rabbis in America," which has been published in Newsweek since 2007), Barry Meyer Chairman Warner Brothers (honored with the American Jewish Committee’s 2006 Dorothy and Sherrill C. Corwin Human Relations Award), Jeff Zucker Chairman Universal NBC and Robert Iger CEO Walt Disney Company (Iger gave Roy Disney the shove in July 2005) among others. Now Mr. Stein writes they’re all Jewish. I’m sure he wouldn’t make such an allegation without authenticating.

It’s no accident that Hollywood is Jewish. It started Jewish. I’m not anti-Semitic and I really think Jews are brilliant. Their contributions to science, literature, arts, architecture, technology, philanthropy, music, education and medicine is astounding. No other nation, people, race or religion has given the world so much in the last 200 years as the Jews have but their contributions have also led to selfish designs against humanity by a Zionist groups. Jews have been exploited. Hollywood has promoted iniquities in, not only America, but globally. Thanks to Hollywood. It has nurtured violence, nudity, hate, crime, greed, lies, inhumanity and all things bad that destroy societies.

The silver screen was dominated in the early years by Samuel Goldwyn, Marcus Loew, Adolph Zukor and Louis Mayer. In 1916 Goldwyn (born Schmuel Gelbfisz in Poland) had formed Goldwyn Pictures. Richard Rowland was the original founder of Metro Pictures in 1914 and Louis Mayer (born Lazar Meir in Russia) then partnered with Richard Rowland in 1915. Loew of Loews Theaters then acquired Metro Pictures in 1920. In 1924 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer was established as a collaboration sans Richard Rowland. Adolph Zukor had founded the Famous Players Film Company in 1912 and together with Jesse Lasky, who with borrowed money from his brother-in-law Samuel Goldwyn, formed the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. The partnership then became Paramount Pictures in 1914. Hirsz (Harry), Aaron (Albert), Szmul (Sam) and Itzhak (Jack) Wonskolaser (renamed Warner) brothers came from Russia and opened their first theater in Pennsylvania in 1903. In 1923 with money lent by banker Motley Flint, the Warner brothers formed Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc. which is now a subsidiary of Time Warner. Brad Greenberg in the JewishJournal.com writes that Time Warner President and COO Jeff Bewkes is Jewish. Greenberg’s article Does Hollywood Give Jewish? http://www.jewishjournal.com/hollywood_jew/article/
is interesting reading.

Besides the short histories of MGM, Paramount and Warner Brothers, there is also Columbia Pictures founded in 1924 by the Cohn brothers Harry and Jack. From 1971 until mid-80’s, Columbia operated jointly with Warner Brothers because of Columbia’s near bankruptcy. In 1989 Sony of Japan acquired Columbia Pictures and renamed it to Sony Pictures Entertainment. The money may be Japanese but not those that run the establishment. Entertainment is no more the nepotism of the early years but now the propaganda of a group that is not nepotism in meaning but only in spirit.

It’s not my intent to write a thesis about the propaganda generated by the entertainment industry because of limited space but for the serious reader it should be more than obvious. From time to time, some Hollywood moguls who’ve conscience do produce movies which have moral themes that touch souls and are clean entertainment.

Just as infinite money forms the sinews of war, infinite money beyond needs also breeds greed and power; greed and power breed arrogance; arrogance is the root of all evil and it has put truth into slumber but not for long though and when it will awaken it won’t without a toll for humanity.
