The billionaire left-wing inheritor of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow has previously referred to as the “New Soros,” will likely deliver the address on June 11, the first time since the pandemic swept across the country. In the statement, Stanford hailed Laurene Powell Jobs for her involvement in The Emerson Collective, which has been a major influencer in the push for left-wing narratives in media.
“Using philanthropy, investing, storytelling and convenings, Emerson Collective creates opportunities and develops solutions to spur change in education, the environment and health equity,” Stanford said.
“In keeping with her belief in supporting quality journalism, Powell Jobs is the owner and board chair of The Atlantic,” the announcement said.
Jobs's keynote address in the Stanford School of Medicine diploma ceremony follows her use of her own media outlet, The Atlantic, to demand that President Joe Biden put unvaccinated Americans on a no-fly list. As Breitbart News previously profiled:
Powell Jobs owns the far-left magazine The Atlantic through her Emerson Collective company. The magazine published an article in the summer that urged the Biden administration to make sure that those not vaccinated be put on a no-fly list. A few weeks later, The Atlantic published an essay in which they praised president Joe Biden for the Afghanistan evacuation which has so far resulted in the death of 13 U.S. service members as well as a wealth of military equipment at the disposal of Taliban terrorists.
Forbes also rates her among the top ten most wealthy women in the world, having an estimated net worth of $16 billion. Most of it comes from her family's holdings of two of the largest companies in the world: Apple and Disney.
The Atlantic article that called for the no-fly list stated that “flying is not a right” and the “federal government is the sole entity that can regulate the terms and conditions of airline safety.”
“The whole point of international-travel bans is to curb infections in the destination country; to protect itself, the United States still has many such restrictions in place,” it added. “Beyond limiting the virus's flow from hot spots to the rest of the country, allowing only vaccinated people on domestic flights will change minds, too.”
