Lion was right about percent of U.S. population that’s Jewish

I’ve previously written that I estimated that 5% of the white population of the United States is Jewish enough to make Aliyah to Israel (which explains why there are so many people with Jewish ancestry in positions of power, because the percent of Americans who are Jews is higher than normally estimated).

This article about Jewish DNA backs me up. “3.5% observed in DNA test-takers living in the USA” are at least 25% Ashkenazi Jewish according to DNA tests.

Given that the USA is 69% non-Hispanic white, 3.5% divided by 0.69 comes out to 5.1%. Just as I estimated!

And this doesn’t even count Sephardic Jews.

  1. At least 50% jewish ancestry, it’s 2,3% in the USA. And when people identify jewish in an ethnic non religious way in order to estimate influence, they look at either or mother or a father. And 2,3% is the regular estimation you see everywhere. Its much less if you count only religious jews. And it’s 3,5% if you count 25% wich could be one grand-parents but could also be 1 grand-grand parents on each line ….

    If you deflate for the ethnic, you’ll have to deflate it also in the numerator. So for example, Unz said jewish represent 27% at Harvard. As Ethnic, represents 55%, then jews are 27/45 or 60%. Even taking the 3,5% case, its a 17 times over-representation.

    And as the 27%, Unz showed how Bar Hillel association went from giving a very large definition of who is jewish, to a very restrictive definition after they understood how bad was his article on Meritocracy. He gives the example of them both saying there is no jewish at Caltech, and then the Caltech site explaining the jewish life is very warm and welcoming at Caltech …..

    • When anti-Semites define Jews for the purpose of saying “there’s too many damn Jews at …” then they are using a broad definition of anyone who has some Jewish ancestry, even if they have never stepped foot in a Synagogue.

      • Yes, but at the same time that broad definition of Jewish ancestry usually can be cited to make Aliyah. Validating the view that a broad definition of Jewish ancestry can be used to politically identify Jews.

  2. According to trump’s ex personal assistant, he does not like appearing in photographs with daughter tiffany because she’s fat. Westerhout also dished up dirt on trump’s eating habits, the details of which I can’t find anywhere online.

    Ok, what, who’s this again? can now have a field day with her alma mater.

    • I think Tiffany Trump is hott.

      • Her face is annoying.


        August 31, 2019 at 4:31 PM

      • I don’t know if she’s hot but she is pretty. So was her mom.


        August 31, 2019 at 7:30 PM


      What’s really interesting is the reporter flagrantly breaking “off the record” confidentiality. That’s how hated Trump is! I could see ripple effects, even for heretofore good-to-their-word reporters.

      The article mentions the personal assistant was seen crying the night of the election. So she’s likely an earnest Never Trumper type— that type that Trump inexplicably staffed anyway along with all the others. Serves him right.

      Outside of playing the media game, he is really not that smart or cunning. Nor is he loyal to his base.


      August 31, 2019 at 1:59 PM

      • Not inexplicable.

        She was a plant. He knew she was a plant. He fed false information through her to her handlers. Now, he does not need her.

        She is gone.

      • ” So she’s likely an earnest Never Trumper type— that type that Trump inexplicably staffed anyway along with all the others. Serves him right.”

        It’s not inexplicable…there was really no one else. There were no group of Trumpers in DC anxious to work for this White House. They were all anti-Trump.

      • Look at the jawline and chin on her in that article! She looks like a man/trans-woman!


        September 1, 2019 at 8:09 AM

    • Being fat and having a round face are different. If Trump think’s Tiffany is fat, he’s wrong.

      She just has a round face, which is typical of young women. Anyone who looks at her arms and legs can tell that she’s not fat at all.

    • Interesting article on Trump’s eating habits before that guy blabbed…

      I know a lot of TOOS folks who eat modestly like him and for similar reasons.


      August 31, 2019 at 5:08 PM

      • “When he’s not eating fried chicken or burgers, Trump enjoys a good steak. He likes them cooked well done, and served with ketchup.“

        I love this. Shows he’s his own man.

        “I know a lot of TOOS folks who eat modestly like him and for similar reasons.”

        The food hygiene reason?


        August 31, 2019 at 7:42 PM

      • I believe picky eating is a sign of intelligence, particularly when it persists into adulthood.

  3. Lion, I am not sure this clinches your case. Having one Jewish grand parent may be enough to get someone admitted to Israel under The Law of Return but, unless that grandparent was the maternal grandmother, that isn’t sufficient to be considered a Jew in Israel.
    Americans with Jewish mothers but traditionally Gentile surnames (or one Jewish grandparent other than the paternal grandfather) are not often recognized by the general public as having significant Jewish ancestry.

  5. This article about Jewish DNA backs me up. “3.5% observed in DNA test-takers living in the USA” are at least 25% Ashkenazi Jewish according to DNA tests.

    The obvious confounding variable here is that people who believe they are Jewish are probably more likely to have a DNA test. In my experience, Jews are generally more race conscious than non-Jewish whites. It’s also naive to believe Jews in positions of authority are immune to exercising the tribalism/nepotism exhibited by other racial groups.


    August 31, 2019 at 12:12 PM

    • Jews are also more likely to be able to afford a DNA test, and to be intelligent enough to understand it, making them more likely to participate.


      August 31, 2019 at 12:49 PM

      • They’re also more likely to want to connect with Holocaust-separated lost and unknown distant family.


        August 31, 2019 at 2:09 PM

    • Any idea what the total % of those with >12% Jewish? >5 Jewish?


      September 1, 2019 at 3:17 PM

  6. Why not count sephardics? They’re the good ones.


    August 31, 2019 at 12:27 PM

    • Because the article was only about Ashkenazi Jews.

      About 10% of the Jews in the U.S. are non-Ashkenazi.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      August 31, 2019 at 12:41 PM

    • They are the good ones.

      Supposedly Sephardic Jews make up 50% of Israel’s population but it seems less to me.

      All of the evil mega-ownership class in Israel are Ashkenazi.

      There’s a real case to be made that the Ashkenazi takeover of Jewishness from the Sephardim in the last century is the worst hostile takeover of all time.


      August 31, 2019 at 12:58 PM

      • Ashkenazi Jews have higher IQ then Sephardim.

      • Sephardic Jews have historically been better integrated under Islamic society. My great-grandfather, for instance, was a rabbi in NW Iran who would ritually slaughter meat for Muslims. This greater sacral cohesiveness gives them less material anxiety that arises from the ghettos of Europe, for the base reason there were more opportunities for social promotion (one can see the pervasiveness of Jewry in the Ottoman Empire as evidence.)

  7. The issue isn’t what percentage of Americans are Aliyah-sufficient, the issue is what percentage of the people practicing the New McCarthyism are Jews. Right?


    August 31, 2019 at 1:05 PM

    • What about the high percentage of Jews on the right? Jews hit way above their percentage of the population in every political movement except political movements that are explicitly about some other religion or are anti-Semitic.

      Even in the HBD movement. Arthur Jensen was Jewish. Half of the authors of the Bell Curve were Jewish.

      Also, I see Donald Trump as the first Jewish President, even though technically he’s not Jewish.

        Trump reminds me of Rodney Dangerfield.

  8. Turns out a ton of Latins are nominally >5% Jewish. Supports the idea that huge numbers of Sephardim fled to the Americas following the Edict of Nantes. Were the conquistadors conversos?

    • The Edict of Nantes gave toleration to the French Calvinists in 1598 and was revoked by Louis XIV in 1685. You mean the Decree of the Alhambra/Edict of Granada issued by Isabel and Ferdinand in 1492, which gave practicing Jews a few months’ notice to clear out of Castile and Aragon.

    • I was amazed that there is actually a Jewish temple here in Yakima WA a city of 100k that is 50% Hispanic. If I ever attend a service I would be interested in seeing if there are any Hispanics. My guess is yes there would be.

      • It is Sudanese and Eritreans in Israel and the liberals in Israel behave exactly the same as the liberals in the US. Comparing to Sudanese, south Americans will be much more welcomed and the existing ones, and they do exist, will integrate far better than in the US because the culture in Israel has Mediterranean element.

  9. Jews are disproportionately more likely to take DNA tests which is one reason why the Jewish breakdown on sites like 23andme and Ancestry is more robust than for people of, say, Czech descent. Jews really really care about ancestry.


    August 31, 2019 at 2:19 PM

  10. DNA test takers in the US are likely disproportionately upper middle class types who keep up with lifestyle trends like taking DNA tests. Jews are likely overrepresented in this category.


    August 31, 2019 at 2:23 PM

  11. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld invaded Iraq. Antisemites blamed Paul Wolfowitz. Most Jews are rational in regards to Israel and didn’t support the war. The only group in the USA that can be whipped up into war fever is White Christians.

    August 31, 2019 at 4:52 PM

    • This is a stupid comment. There were Christians and Jews on both sides of that issue, and I’d hardly call the atmosphere of the time “war fever.” More like, fog of confusion.

      Also, I think I’ve heard Paul Wolfowitz blamed for the war perhaps once, whereas I’ve heard men like Cheney and Bush blamed countless times. Wolfowitz is hardly remembered at all, by comparison.

  13. So what percent of the US high-IQ (let’s say, over 130) population is Jewish? More than 20%?
