Potential Republican presidential candidate and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke told RT’s Thom Hartmann Thursday that Jews were the greatest threat to American democracy.
“Who, in your opinion, David Duke, are the Republicans most afraid of?” Hartmann asked the former Louisiana state representative. “Would it be the Jews, the African Americans or the gays?”
Most politicians would have dodgef that question, but not Duke.
“I think the fact is that both Democrats and Republicans are very afraid of the Jewish extremists, the Zionists, because the Zionists have incredible amounts of media power,” Duke said. “They’ve got the most powerful lobby in Washington, which is AIPAC, of course. And they’ve got enormous financial power. I mean, they control the Federal Reserve.”
“If the Jews really run the world then how did we end up with five Catholics running the U.S. Supreme Court?” Hartmann pressed.
“First off, we have two Jews on the Supreme Court. They’re very powerful and the point is that’s it’s not a question of whether a Jew is in a particular position of power. But Jewish extremists’ interests are. Israel is truly a terrorist state. Israel has even attacked America with terrorism.”
“I’m not saying that all Jews do,” he continued, “and I’m not against all Jewish people.”
“Well, thanks for that,” Hartmann said sarcastically.
“The Jewish extremists who control the Jewish people also control these critical aspects of power. I call it the Jewish matrix of power,” Duke remarked. “They control massive international finance, like the IMF, like the Federal Reserve, like a lot of the international banking, like Goldman Sachs… they also control the media.”
“David, enough of the anti-semitism,” Hartmann interrupted.
“It’s not anti-semitic, it’s reality,” Duke replied. “You start talking about Jewish extremists’ power, there comes the smears.”

Pentagon data breach compromises servicemembers’ personal information: report
According to NBC News, the Department of Defense has sent out letters warning servicemembers that a likely breach in the system that manages military information technology and communications may have compromised their personal information.

Republicans ‘went nuts’ on intelligence officials who told them Russia is ready to support Trump’s re-election: report
On Thursday, an explosive new report showed that not only was Russia planning once again to sabotage the U.S. presidential election, but that President Donald Trump was furious when intelligence officials informed House Democratic investigators of this threat — shortly before he announced he would be replacing the acting Director of National Intelligence with a hardcore partisan loyalist.
But according to The Daily Beast, Trump wasn't the only one who was outraged. House Republicans who received the briefing also objected to the intelligence.
‘That’s a bombshell, that’s an earthquake’: NBC reporter sounds the alarm on Russia’s latest efforts for Trump
The New York Times broke the story Thursday that Russia is supporting President Donald Trump and is already hacking the 2016 election to help his reelection.
It was something NBC reporter Ken Delanian called a "bombshell."
"It is the worst nightmare of many of my sources in the intelligence world," he said. "It's bad enough to learn that there is classified intelligence that Russia is interfering again and trying to elect Donald Trump. We should be careful about that because it is not clear what it means. Does it mean disinformation on social media, does it mean intercepts that suggest people in the Kremlin are discussing the campaign? That is bad enough, but then the notion that because a briefing of that information was delivered to a bipartisan group of lawmakers, that cost Joe Maguire the job? That is a bombshell."
