Who is Sheldon Adelson,- The Bibi Connection

http://nomormonpresidentnomittromney2012.blogspot.com/2012/06/who-is-sheldon-adelson-why-is-romney.html

The short answer is he is a fanatical right wing Zionist who has made billions of dollars from gambling and it seems prostitution also. He is being investigated by the authorities in China where he has the biggest casinos on earth, because they say they found 100 prostitutes working in one of them and they are investigating his ties to organized crime in China. The US Justice Department and the Securities Exchange Commision are investigating also. Adelson is of the opinion that Obama is not sufficiently compliant with Israel's wants and needs (Adelson is an unabashed Israel firster).

Read about him and his shabbos goy Romney here on this blog. It's a matter of the life and death of your country.

Sheldon Adelson's and Bibi Netanyahoo's favorite shabbos goy Newt Gingrich was an epic fail and they've gone to plan B- Mitt "The Mormon" Romney

“US President Barack Obama is ‘naïve’ and needs to face up to the threat presented by the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood across the Middle East, Israel’s National Security Council concluded during a strategic discussion several days ago,” Israel Hayom reported. The Israeli National Security Council consists of Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu’s closest advisers. And Israel Hayom is not just another right-leaning Israeli tabloid. Referred to by Israelis as the “Bibiton,” or Bibi’s mouthpiece, the paper is an instrument that gives him extraordinary political leverage. The obviously planted article in Israel Hayom rang like a bell sounding the start of Netanyahu’s own campaign in helping the Republican Party oust Obama from the White House.

Israel Hayom’s genesis demonstrates the depth of Netanyahu’s connections in Republican circles. It was created by one of Netanyahu’s top financial supporters, a Las Vegas-based casino tycoon named Sheldon Adelson, who is also a major donor to the conservative wing of the Republican Party. Adelson’s closest relationship is with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a longtime ally of Netanyahu who has been running a rancorous campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Netanyahu’s less than subtle intervention has become an open issue in Israeli politics. Opposition leader Tzipi Livni of the Kadima Party has criticized Netanyahu for damaging the US-Israeli relationship. “Netanyahu spoke about consensus,” Livni said in May, “and if there is a consensus in Israel, it’s that the relationship with the US is essential to Israel, and a prime minister that harms the relationship with the US over something unsubstantial is harming Israel’s security and deterrence.”

But Livni’s warning has been ignored. Rather than hesitating, the prime minister and his inner circle are moving full steam ahead in their political shadow campaign whose ultimate goal is to remove Obama. Bibi’s war against Obama is unprecedented. While Israeli prime ministers have tried to help incumbent presidents, none have ever waged a full-scale campaign to overthrow them.

Netanyahu has engaged enthusiastic allies in the Republican Congress, led by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and within the right-wing media. His neoconservative allies in Washington are launching a “Super PAC” to generate emotional attack ads against Obama and any candidate that might be an obstacle to his policies. And his campaign has even broadened into an attempt to discredit The New York Times, whose editorial page and foreign policy columnists, Thomas Friedman and Roger Cohen, have been critical of him.

Netanyahu’s shadow campaign is intended to be a factor in defeating Obama and electing a Republican in his place. He opposed Obama’s early demand to freeze settlements on the West Bank as a precondition for reviving the peace process, a process since the Oslo Accord that Netanyahu has attempted to stall or sabotage, despite his signing of the Wye Agreement under pressure from President Clinton. Since his adamant stand against the settlement freeze, Netanyahu has undermined every effort to engage the peace process. He appears dead set on consolidating Greater Israel, or what many Israelis call “Judea and Samaria,” and has signaled a strong desire to attack Iran.

By all accounts, Netanyahu’s personal chemistry with Obama is toxic. Obama bristles at his belligerence. But Netanyahu’s hostility has reaped rewards from him, having stopped the peace process in its tracks. The latest effort by the Quartet seems doomed to failure. And Netanyahu’s rejectionism has put Obama on the defense. Most of the US Jewish establishment has remained a bulwark for Bibi’s policies. Obama, meanwhile, has been forced to declare America’s “unshakable bond” with Israel, even as Bibi thwarts Obama’s initiatives and attacks him in the Israeli press.

As political strategy, by tainting Obama as less than full-throated in support of Israel, Netanyahu bolsters the Republican themes that the president “apologizes” for US power, is weak on national security, and is an agent of “decline.” By depicting Obama as “weak” on Israel, Netanyahu’s campaign excites right-wing Jews and evangelical Christians, who overwhelmingly accept the biblical claims of the Jewish state’s historical right to Greater Israel, Judea and Samaria. Bibi’s deepest attack line against Obama merges theology with ideology.

His campaign against Obama is a high-stakes gambit that will almost certainly color US-Israeli relations well past Election Day. Already, Netanyahu has succeeded in polarizing the political debate, as his agenda is singularly aligned with the Republican Party. Yet Bibi’s short-term objectives are rapidly turning the US-Israel relationship, at least under his aegis, into a partisan issue, another litmus test of conservative ideology rather than national interest.

Hey, under Citizen's United, organized crime is free to buy elections And it doesn't matter if they are foreign organized criminals, as long as the money spends.

Got money, you can play.

"Hey, under Citizen's United, organized crime is free to buy elections " Adelson is under investigation by Chinese police because they found 100 prostitutes working in one of his casino hotels. They also are looking into ties with triads. So BTW is the US DOJ and SEC though they are scared shitless of him I'm sure. Adelson is a major player in Israeli politics who says openly that his heart is in Israel and that he wants his American born son to become a sniper in the Israeli Army. Even John McCain publicly worries that the Adelson connection will blow up on the Republican Party which is why I keep mentioning him.

[-] 4 points by brightonsage (4494) 1 year ago

Good post. The banks, the US Chamber of Commerce, and a large number of other organizations with global reach are worthy of RICO investigations.

Politicians worry about the reputations of huge contributors just enough to keep accepting the contributions until the contributors go to jail and the are sure that the contributions have stopped, permanently. Of course McCain can start worrying a few milliseconds sooner, since he has probably squeaked by his last election.

To me it says a lot that McCain beefed about Adelson in public on TV. It says it's good to hammer on Adelson.

I sure looks like elections can be bought. It seems easier to buy the Congressional seats because the people are less well known. That makes fraudulent charges/claims about them more effective.

I really can't understand the extent of willful ignorance in our society. Unfortunately we get what they deserve.

Most Jewish Americans are not particularly rich, they mainly are professionals like doctors. There are many who are workers and some who are poor. Adelson is not typical though he does embody almost every trait one could put into a stereotype. The majority of Jews by far voted for Barack Obama and say they intend to do so again. The only white ethnic group to do so by the way.

[-] 2 points by flip (4984) 1 year ago

Since the mass immigration some 100 years ago, Jews have become richest religious group in American society. They make up only 2% of US population, but 25% of 400 wealthiest Americans.

[-] 2 points by frogmanofborneo (602) from New York, NY 1 year ago

That's true. Of course 25% of the richest 400 amount to 100 individuals (or maybe families?). Would you agree that most are middle class? I was countering mowat with whom I do not agree. There is no conspiracy of Jews to "run things" and not all Jews are rich like Adelson or Bloomberg. However if you are say in academia for example you wouldn't want to be on Adelson or Bloomberg's or Dershowitz' short shit list like Norman Finkelstein once was, so he never could find secure employment in a University. Ditto journalism and ditto entertainment.

[-] 3 points by flip (4984) 1 year ago

there is obviously no conspiracy of jews to run things - the country runs the way madison designed it to run - that the minority of the opulent would make the decisions. or as john jay said - "those that own the country should govern it" - so i guess mowat is a moron - i did not read his comment. i am sure finkelstein is still on their list but since he is out of a job they don't bother. since you brought him up i assume you think norman is one of the gatekeepers also?

[-] 0 points by frogmanofborneo (602) from New York, NY 1 year ago

I don't like to make personal remarks against Finkelstein. I disagree with him about Palestine and about BDS. I think he's way on the wrong side there. I always thought of Finkelstein as an honest guy with honest opinions. Stuff he wrote was fantastic, terrific and got Dershowitz quite angry and Dershowitz apparently dedicated quite some energy to destroy as best he could Finkelstein's life and career. Norman Finkelstein certainly has not been on anyone's gravy train. So when it comes to Finkelstein I respectfully disagree, unlike some others that could be mentioned and in fact have been mentioned before.

[-] 2 points by flip (4984) 1 year ago

i do not subscribe to your childish gatekeeper theory - if you replace noam or amy where you wrote finkelstein it would still all be true as norman will tell you - he for sure would not put up with your silliness. not sure where you are getting your info but you need to start doing a better job - do you think you are moving the ball forward here by spreading lies and nonsense about people who have dedicated their lives to peace and justice - now maybe you can tell me what you have done for the cause!

[-] 1 points by frogmanofborneo (602) from New York, NY 1 year ago

Well I'm not here to please you or even "norman" who I guess you represent(?) On the other hand so much has been written on this forum about Chomsky's gate keeping I refuse to re-invent the wheel with you. It's clear that talking to a cultist is like talking to an idiot, so I'll pass on this next great chomsky debate.

i noticed you did not want to mention what you have been doing these past decades - cultist my ass. you must be very young - those of us who have been around a while know that you and your little rock throwing pals are not helping - ego gratification is what you are about. grow up - this is too important.

It was a matter of fatigue and frankly I don't care if you are impressed or not by me and my history. Like you I am participating in this forum anonymously or at least semi anonymously.My life is mainly a struggle for survival and to assist some people very close to me in the same endeavor. I've been as active as I am able to be. I was probably inhaling tear gas when you were working at the social democrat Guardian I was contemporary to Chomsky in the Vietnam days and I remember what I speak of. I don't follow Amy Goodman's TV show. There is an assertion by someone else here that she is going along with the MSM line on Syria. If that's true I couldn't disagree more with her. I haven't the time nor the inclination to check it out. And I completely understand and sympathize with these kids who want to throw things and knock things over. We've left them a pretty fucked up world.

that's what it is - you're a moaist! explains everything - no - don't represent norman - just read a little - can you? Q&A with Norman Finkelstein By Norman Finkelstein and David Samuels

How do you know Noam Chomsky?

That’s an interesting story, which tells you something about Professor Chomsky as a person. I don’t like to put him on a pedestal, because, you know, I’ve known him for more than a quarter of a century, and I was very close with his wife, closer than with Professor Chomsky. Because Professor Chomsky is in the cerebral world, and [his wife, the linguist] Carol [Schatz], who is brilliant, was also down to earth. We could talk bullshit. I went shopping with her, we would talk about prices in the supermarket, and she took out her coupons at the cash register.

Chomsky has his flaws, but the virtues are staggering. It’s not just that he made these linguistic discoveries; it’s the thousands of graduate students that he trained. He createdphysically a field. And you know, I travel a lot, I tell you every time everywhere I go, at least two people will say, “I read a book by Chomsky, and it changed my life.” But he has his flaws, like everybody else.

What are Chomsky’s biggest flaws?

I’m never going to say. Because Chomsky’s biggest virtue, you know what it is? Aside from his staggering intellect and absolute faithfulness, Professor Chomsky never betrayed a friend. He will defend them even though inside he knows that they’re completely wrong.

But don’t those virtues of friendship and faithfulness come into conflict with the truth?

I know that! I see that! But he cares very deeply about the facts. Let me tell you a story. I worked for a radical newspaper, The Guardian. A modest paper, you never heard of it. I remember we were sitting in a room, having an editorial meeting, and at that time there were two Maoist factions—it’s laughable now—the October League and the Revolutionary Communist Party. The Guardian was pro-the October League, and we were debating whether we should increase the numbers of people who attended the October League rallies and decrease the number of people who attended Revolutionary Communist rallies in our stories. And I’m thinking to myself, “Wait a minute, there’s a problem here. Shouldn’t we be telling the truth?” And you know, that was the difference with Chomsky. It wasn’t enough to say that something was bourgeois propaganda or Zionist propaganda—no, you had to prove it.

So, how did I meet him? I had been a Maoist, and then when the Gang of Four was overthrown I was completely distraught. I was bedridden for three weeks, it was a very painful experience for me. Not only because I had been wrong, but because I felt really embarrassed that I had been lecturing and pontificating with such self-confidence.

A "Moaist"? (Chuckle). Mao was a great revolutionary who did some great things and made some bad errors, and as anyone trying to do many things is going to do. We could use an American Mao right now but there is none. I think this "no leader" stuff is wrong and is a lie anyhow. It's a way for leaders to avoid responsibility when they do make errors.

I liked the "gang of four" too but I was too busy to get sick when they were overthrown.

I used to read the Guardian, as well as other left stuff of the time. I was an activist anti Vietnam war GI too, and been arrested not like Noam in some ceremony but grabbed and shit kicked out of me and then some lying charges and a bullshit felony trial for keeps. I've been a union activist and a whistle blower too (not much traction there- I lost a job of eleven years over it and couldn't get any help.) Were I younger and healthier and my circumstnces different I's have been in Liberty Square with all it's faults. I want Occupy to win. And Noam IS a Zionist it's been proven, only cultists who are in fact soft Zionists like he is can't see it. Talking to you and "struggle for freedom" is like arguing with two Mormon missionaries. Waste of time. 'Bye.

well my uncle would have liked the horse comment but his would have been "you don't know if you are on foot or horseback!" - throwing rocks is the dumbest thing one can do and you are an apologist for those little masked boys - nice! you are longing for a new mao - no wonder you hate chomsky since he points out how silly that is. read history - maybe you could start with another zionist gatekeeper - howard zinn. i know too many people like you - you are the only one who knows the truth and get pissed off when others point out how stupid your thinking is. it is clear you know very little about noam - his thinking on different subjects or his personal history. as is with most stupid people you have read about him but have not read him. or it could be that you did and don't understand what you read - zionist - norman too i guess. sorry that you are have been beat to shit by the world but you are not alone and it is no reason for stupidity. bitter old man. you have no time since you do what - work 70 hr weeks. you seem to have plenty of time to write your shit here - you are all over this site so cut the shit - you got plenty of time - now use it wisely - help people understand what is happening to them. if you were not such an ass we could have had a conversation that educated some people but no you have to throw shit like david horowitz or dershowitz - you do know you are lined up with them on many subjects - they would also like to see another mao and want kids to throw rocks - oh yes and then there is that chomsky thing. it is also clear that you do not know what bye signifies!

Tell the world dude. No Mao no Chinese Revolution. No Chinese Revolution no escape from poverty and degradation for a billion people. Don't believe all the crap that's put out against socialism and revolution. Look around.

http://rconversation.blogs.com/rconversation/2006/11/links_for_20061_21.html

found international herald tribune to be a terrible source for balanced news. Good to see that they are fuming mad that the propagandists are failing to hijack Chinese wikipedia.

Everybody in China knows that Mao did not kill 50 million people. If we can blame him, then we can also blame all past Presidents of the US in the past 30 years for killing 1 million Americans every year. 1 million Americans die each year from heart or heart related diseases and what is the government doing about it? Its been going on for more than a decade now.

I also said this before, if Mao can be blamed for the famine, then Queen Elizabeth must have killed my grandfather. Because when Queen Elizabeth was ruler of the British Empire, it controlled Malaysia. But instead of giving all of us colonial subjects good health care, build state of the art hospitals etc. etc., we got all the inferior stuff. My grandfather as a result did not get any healthcare from the British Empire and he died early therefore the British Empire killed him because if there was a good hospital, he would have been saved.

I can blame the Queen more: My parents didn't get a good education because they were so poor and had to quit elementary school, why? Because of the British Empire, in particular Queen Elizabeth. If she gave my grandparents social security payments, then my parents wouldn't have to quit school. In fact, not one of my uncles or aunts graduted from high school, all had to quit early to make a living. All British Empire and Queen Elizabeths's fault. We became your subjects, how come you treated us so bad?

Just as I do not blame the British Empire or Queen Elizabeth for all the hardship, the Chinese don't blame Mao. Afterall, there was no "intent" to kill. Hitler "intended" to kill the Jews. But Queen Elizabeth or Mao had no "intent". Their policies did not bring us complete luxurious lives. That is all.

Its funny to see how they are blaming the refusal of the Chinese people to buy into the propagandist theory that Mao killed 50 million as a result of Chinese sanitization of its education system. They are always looking for ways to rationalize it in a way to make the Chinese people dumb.

Many of the Western references on Mao are totally useless. They are mostly written by a couple of scholars who went to the library and read some books and paraphrased them into a compilation. The information they get have been 2nd sourced or 3rd sourced. They had no idea if what they are reading is balanced or biased. They just quote it in their books because it was printed in an earlier book. Many had not even met Mao in person yet they claim to be writing his biography.

Remember Tianamen? The Western media used to tell us thousands of people died on the square as tanks crushed the students then later we found out it was all distorted and the actual number was actually closer to several hundreds and the square itself was evcuated peacefully - exactly what the Chinese government had said earlier?

Posted by: mahathir_fan | November 30, 2006 at 02:11 AM

I didn't grow up in China and wasn't there when Mao was ruler, so let me ask the Chinese people who may be reading this:

If you are Chinese, how did Mao killed your relatives during the great leap forward?

Let's see how many responses we will get then we'll know if Mao really did kill 50 million people. I have asked the Chinese people I know the same question and none could tell me which of their relatives were murdered by Mao. Maybe the internet will help me reach a wider audience.
