In honor of holocaust Remembrance Day on Tuesday, the Biden administration made a poor choice in choosing a representative to speak on its behalf. Not only does Justice Department civil rights chief Kristen Clarke have history with anti-Semitic scholars, but she also took the opportunity to discuss Black Lives Matter issues rather than solely focus on the 6 million Jews that perished.

In her speech, Clarke spoke of “the enormity of the loss of six million Jews” in the Holocaust, but turned it into the lessons it provides for ongoing atrocities in “Ukraine, Ethiopia, the Congo, and elsewhere around the world.”

She did mention the obvious rise in anti-Semitism in the United States, but then pivoted to hate crimes against other racial and ethnic groups.

“Attacks against black people—the most targeted group—and against other marginalized communities continue to increase,” she said.

The Washington Free Beacon reported “Clarke may not be the ideal choice to represent the Justice Department on the topic of the Holocaust. In college, Clarke rubbed shoulders with black liberation activists known for anti-Semitic views. As the president of Harvard’s Black Students Association in 1994, Clarke hosted a speech for Wellesley professor Tony Martin, who promoted false theories that a cabal of Jews orchestrated the global slave trade.”

Clarke defended Martin after outcry over the event as an “an intelligent, well-versed Black intellectual who bases his information of [sic] indisputable fact.”

Martin in 2002 gave a talk, “Tactics of Organized Jewry in Suppressing Free Speech,” at a conference hosted by a Holocaust denial group, the Institute for Historical Review.

The Beacon adds:

Clarke also served on the editorial board of an academic journal with Amiri Baraka, a black liberationist poet who once blamed Jews for 9/11. Clarke concealed her affiliation with Baraka during her Senate confirmation hearing in 2021 when she told Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah) that she had never served on “the editorial staff of a journal with Amiri Baraka.”

Several left-wing Jewish groups during her confirmation hearing defendedClarke against charges of anti-Semitism. She was narrowly confirmed to the civil rights post in a party-line vote.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
