House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) captured media attention with his vocal declaration that participants in the Occupy Wall Street movement were nothing more than “mobs.” His word choice was interesting since the public record indicates that Cantor does indeed know much about mobs—the Wall Street mob, in particular. If there’s any one single member of Congress who can be reckoned a voice for Wall Street, it is Cantor.
Even the most cursory review of Cantor’s campaign financing demonstrates that a literal handful of billionaires in the global financial plutocracy—all intimately tied to the London-based Rothschild family—have been key forces underwriting Cantor’s career, a point (especially in light of his immense power) that cannot be taken lightly.
The truth is that Cantor is one of the very few in Congress— 535 members strong—who has some of the richest and most powerful people in the world bankrolling his political endeavors.
It is for good reason that wags say Cantor is now “the cantor of the House”—a play on words. A cantor is the person in a synagogue who leads chants and prayers along with the rabbi, a major religious role.
