Presidential Hopefuls Pander to Zionist Billionaire Sheldon Adelson
The GOP/Jewish Coalition: Presidential Hopefuls Pander to Zionist Billionaire Sheldon Adelson
by Don Fox
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. – Revelation 2:9
As the Obama administration’s days in office start to wane, the process of vetting the 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls is in full swing.
Adelson has let it be known that he is looking for a Republican to back in the 2016 Presidential election.
Right on cue Scott Walker, John Kasich, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush took turns pandering to the 80 year old hard core Zionist billionaire. Adelson and his wife spent more than $93 million on the 2012 elections so sucking up to Shelly is certainly worth the effort for a 2016 Republican presidential wannabe.
Business Week: What does Adelson hope to accomplish with his primary?
- He wants to back an electable, mainstream Republican candidate. This is an implicit acknowledgement that he erred in backing a fringe figure in Gingrich last time around. Gingrich was the one who first launched the devastating “vulture capitalist” attacks on Romney (although the phrase is Rick Perry’s) that Obama later picked up. So this time, instead of personal loyalty, Adelson is focusing on electability. As notable as Adelson’s Vegas roster this weekend is the list of marquee names who are not there: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Mike Huckabee.
- He really wants to stop Internet gambling. Adelson considers it a threat to his casino business. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced legislation this week—drafted with Adelson’s lobbyist, according to the New York Times—that would shut down Internet gambling. Adelson also funds a Washington pressure group, the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling, that has focused on enlisting the support of social conservatives. As Graham told to the Times, explaining why he had become the senate sherpa for Adelson’s interests: “I would say that Sheldon has aligned himself with most Baptists in South Carolina.”
Here is Adelson’s presidential dilemma: The Venn diagram of “Republicans who oppose online gambling” doesn’t much overlap with “Republicans who are electable.” The first group comprises mainly social conservatives, such as Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and possibly Rick Perry, who would oppose gambling on moral grounds. None are remotely top-tier candidates who would widen the Republican Party’s electoral appeal.
The candidates who conceivably could do that—Christie, Bush, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul—tend to be positioning themselves as forward-thinking, innovation-minded, tech-friendly Republicans who can appeal to a more modern and moderate segment of the electorate than the old GOP. In the past two weeks, Rubio has given speeches at Uber and Google (GOOG) in Washington, D.C. Christie has already legalized Internet gambling in New Jersey. An outright ban seems an unlikely position for them to suddenly adopt, even if a lot of money is on the line.
Pat Buchanan’s Observations
These two goals don’t seem too ominous – everyone wants to back a winner and what oligarch doesn’t want to protect his business interests? But does Adelson actually have a far more sinister goal? From Pat Buchanan’s blog:
But last fall at Yeshiva University, this “very rational guy” (Adelson) gave this response to a question from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on whether he supports U.S. negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program:
“No. What do you mean support negotiations? What are we going to negotiate about? What I would say is, ‘Listen, you see that desert out there, I want to show you something.’ …
You pick up your cell phone and you call somewhere in Nebraska and you say, ‘OK let it go.’
“So, there’s an atomic weapon, goes over ballistic missiles, the middle of the desert, that doesn’t hurt a soul. Maybe a couple of rattlesnakes, and scorpions, or whatever.
“And then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.
“‘You want to be peaceful. Just reverse it all, and we will guarantee that you can have a nuclear power plant for electricity purposes, energy purposes.’”
Adelson’s response was recorded by Philip Weiss of Mondoweiss website who was at Yeshiva and filmed the interview. Weiss says the audience cheered Adelson’s proposed nuclear strike on Iran and no one on the stage, not Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, peeped a word of dissent.
And this is a “very rational guy,” who doesn’t want “a crazy extremist to be the nominee”?
This is someone Republican presidential candidates must appease, if they don’t want tens of millions in attack ads run against them?
This is someone the Republican presidential hopefuls must hearken to now?
Again, so it would seem.
Chris Christie Makes His Pitch
During his talk before the few dozen members of the RJC, Gov. Chris Christie recounted his recent trip to Israel: “I took a helicopter ride from the occupied territories” and came “to understand the military risk that Israel faces every day.”

Christie’s effort at bonding boomeranged. An angry Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America confronted Christie to demand that he explain just what he meant by “occupied territories.”
For half a century, the United States has considered the West Bank occupied land where Israeli settlements are illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Whatever Christie’s response, it did not satisfy the ZOA or Klein who declared: “Either [Christie] doesn’t understand the issue, or he’s hostile to Israel.
Whereupon Christie, in a private audience with Adelson, apologized.
A source close to Adelson told Politico that Christie made clear “that he misspoke when he referred to the ‘occupied territories.’ And he conveyed that he is an unwavering friend and committed supporter of Israel, and was sorry for any confusion that came across as a result of the misstatement.”
The governor is a tough guy, but this sounds like groveling.
Is this what Republican presidential candidates must do now?
Kowtow to this fattest of fat cats who wants to buy himself an American war on Iran?
Typically the unseemly process of politicians selling themselves off to the highest bidder goes on behind closed doors but at the Republican Jewish Coalition aka The Sheldon Primary, the proceedings were on full public display.
Scott Walker: Battle Tested Zionist Shill
Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor, pandered unabashedly by giving the Hebrew meaning of his son Matthew’s name and by mentioning that he displays a menorah at home along with the Christmas tree.
Walker is no stranger to sucking up to Zionist billionaires – he has made a career out of toeing the Koch brother’s line in Madison and doing everything he can to crush what’s left of the labor movement.
Walker is an extremely divisive figure and he even had to face a recall election that he somehow managed to win. A large percentage of the Wisconsin populace hates Walker with a passion. It is difficult to see him winning a national election.
John Kasich: From Moderate Republican to Zionist Sycophant
John Kasich can hardly be described as a hard core conservative. During his congressional career from 1983 to January of 2001 he supported the assault weapons ban, cut spending on the B-2 bomber and worked to close some corporate tax loopholes. As chairman of the House Budget Committee he was credited with balancing the Federal Budget.
Fast forward to the Sheldon Primary and Kasich is reduced to pandering to the Zionists:
Kasich, the Ohio governor, kept addressing his speech to “Sheldon,” as if he were having a private tete-a-tete with the mega-donor (Adelson and his wife spent more than $93 million on the 2012 elections) and not speaking to a roomful of people.
No doubt a veteran politico like Kasich is acutely aware of the need to stay on the good side of the Zionists. If they start running attack ads that will spell the end of any realistic chance he has at the White House.
Jeb Bush: The Prize Bull
Ari Fleischer, press secretary to Bush 43, and a member of Adelson’s RJC fiefdom, put it plain and simple: “The ‘Sheldon Primary’ is an important primary. … anybody running for the Republican nomination would want to have Sheldon at his side.”
One such man is Jeb Bush, son and brother to presidents, who was the prize bull at Sheldon’s cattle show. Daniel Ruth of the Tampa Bay Times speculates on Jeb’s motive in showing up:
“Would you slink into Las Vegas to schmooze gambling mogul Sheldon Adelson who regards GOP presidential nominees as if they were trophy heads mounted in his den, if you had no interest in the White House? Bush is not going to Vegas to catch Meat Loaf’s act at Planet Hollywood.”
The 2016 presidential hopefuls “are falling at his feet,” said a veteran Republican strategist of the 80-year-old oligarch. Each of those who came — Bush, Chris Christie, and Govs. Scott Walker and John Kasich — apparently auditioned, one by one, before the godfather.
The Bush family has a long track record of serving the Zionists. Bush is also polling at around 12.3% at the time of this writing so he is not far behind early leaders Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee.
Rand Paul: Elephant in the Room
At the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) meeting in Las Vegas this weekend, Paul was nowhere to be found, but his presence was felt in the form of a straw man — and frequent worry. Speaker after speaker, from former Florida governor Jeb Bush to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, laid into Paul’s more isolationist views on foreign policy. They never mentioned the lawmaker by name, but the message came across loud and clear.
The conference brings together some of the biggest names — and wallets — in Republican politics, most notably billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. At a private dinner for VIP donors in an Adelson-owned aircraft hangar holding one of his pair of Boeing 747s, Bush was asked about the growing isolationist wing of the Republican Party and replied there was no such thing — effectively casting Paul out of the fold, according to attendees.
Rand Paul has previously spoken of the need to end all foreign aid – even to Israel and the need to end all of the foreign entanglements that have cost the US taxpayers trillions of dollars and thousands of Americans their lives and limbs. These positions have caused a great deal of consternation amongst the Israel First crowd. After Rand’s trip to Israel he is backing off of his stance of cutting off Israel’s foreign aid. However there is still a great deal of distrust between the Zionists and Rand.
Darth Cheney: Endless Wars for Israel
Without naming names, Cheney also slammed the less hawkish members of his own party—such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)—for believing that the United States “can afford to turn its back on that part of the world,” referring to the Middle East. “One of the things that concerns me first about the campaign, that I’m worried about,” he said, “is what I sense to be an increasing strain of isolationism, if I can put it in those terms, in our own party. It’s not taking over, by any means, but there is without question a body of thought now that’s supported by many Republicans and some candidates that the United States can afford to turn its back on that part of the world.” Cheney complained that “some candidates” think that the Middle East is “not our problem … Bring the boys home. There’s no reason in the world for us to be involved in that part of the world.” But, he remarked, “anybody who thinks back on the problems of 9/11″ knows “it makes absolutely no sense at all for us to contemplate that course of action.”
Cheney was a central figure in the events of 9/11. Cheney had no problem faking hijackings or nuking skyscrapers in New York to justify invading Iraq and Afghanistan. Over a million innocent people were killed in Iraq so that Israel can maintain its hegemony over the Middle East. Cheney and the Neocons are willing do almost anything so that Israel can maintain its dominance.
Looking at 2016 through the 9/11 lens
You cannot understand current events if you don’t understand what really happened on 9/11. Those who have studied 9/11 have concluded that it was a Zionist operation – the evidence is overwhelming. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars that followed primarily benefited Israel.
When we refer to Israel in the context of researching these types of events we actually mean the Rothschild criminal network which is the power structure that carved Israel out of Palestine. The Rothschilds control the major central banks of the world such as the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England etc. The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a long time.
The Rothschild criminal cartel was behind the assassinations of Lincoln, FDR, JFK, RFK, World War I and II, Vietnam, the events of 9/11 and on and on. No informed person underestimates the power that Israel has to influence world events. If you are unfamiliar with the Rothschilds a good place to start your research is Daryl Bradford Smith’s Rothschilds Timeline.
If Israel has the power to assassinate US presidents – and they certainly appear to, they also have the power to influence elections. Adelson is making no secret of his desire to influence the 2016 Presidential Election. Is he spending all of this money merely to stop internet gambling or is he trying to get a stooge into the White House to start a war with Iran? Bamboozling the American public into yet another illegitimate war for Israel certainly fits the modus operandi of the Zionists.
It’s rather disgusting seeing Presidential contenders groveling to the Zionists. Almost as though we live in an alternate universe. Why must Americans grovel to the Zionists? Israel can’t survive without massive economic and military aid from the US. The US has provided Israel with $121 billion in economic assistance since World War II and fought countless wars to keep their despotic regime in power.

In a just world Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Giuliani, Zakheim, Silverstein and the rest of the 9/11 perpetrators would stand trial for war crimes. All of the foreign aid that the US has sent to Israel would be clawed back and our troops withdrawn from the region immediately.
But since the average American lives in a fog of Zionist propaganda we’ll most likely see yet another President elected in 2016 who will be beholden to the Zionists. A disastrous war with Iran may be the price of our national ignorance this time.
