I can only imagine what readers of the distant future will make of the bizarre and disgusting behavior of our public officials. It will read like the hard to credit outrages from the decline of the Roman Republic. There have been several just lately, but surely the worst must be the procession of GOP presidential hopefuls before a collection of disloyal ethnic billionaires organized by one Sheldon Adelson. So far, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have traveled to that seat of American taste and virtue, Las Vegas, there to dance for Sheldon Adelson’s millions. Just last week Chris Christie spoke before a gathering of Sheldon’s 800 closest friends to swear allegiance to Israel. But fat dancing bears are notoriously clumsy and so Christie used the term “Occupied Territories,” for what we all call the occupied territories. Sheldon and his Zionist pals insist on calling these places “The contested places.” Christie actually apologized for his faux pas and was granted a grudging, conditional absolution, pending good behavior.
So far as I can tell, only Rand Paul has refused to perform dancing bear tricks for Zionist dollars. It’s nice to see at least one candidate who holds American interests paramount. It’s almost quaint. But we shouldn’t be surprised. Adelson has let it be know that he regrets funding two losers in the last election he tried to buy. He gave $15 million to Newt Gingrich to stop Romney only to have to spend God knows how many millions backing Romney, all for naught. His reasoning was simple. Obama was not soundly in Israel’s camp and would fail to start the long hoped-for war with Iran.
I know this is a serious charge so let’s hear from Sheldon himself about how he would deal with Iran. These are his remarks delivered at Yeshiva University in answer to a question by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach 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.”
The above is just a hint of what Adelson represents, and yet these presidential hopefuls are willing to publically grovel and dance to his tune.
Adelson seems to be betting on Jeb Bush at the moment and for two reasons. The first is the Bush family habit of invading Muslim countries suspected of inconveniencing Israel. The other is that Jeb Bush is even more inclined than his father and brother to flood the country with cheap Mexican labor. And if there is anything Sheldon loves almost as much as Israel, it is cheap, non-unionized labor for his casinos. Immigration amnesty is one of the dance steps one must practice for Sheldon’s millions.
In the uproar among Republicans over the 2012 defeat it was obvious that immigration was one reason why many GOP’ers stayed home. It looked for a while like the GOP might actually swing in the direction of American population interests. And then, Sheldon and his buddies opened their wallets and both Eric Cantor (R) and House Speaker Boehner (R) announced their commitment to Immigration reform i.e., amnesty, for millions of illegals. Adelson gave $5 million to Cantor’s PAC and a like amount into Boehner’s. And presto, immigration amnesty is still a topic in the House. And yet millions of honest Republican voters believe that these two opportunists represent them! These bears dance not for you dear voters, but for the guy with the money and the dual loyalty.
Adelson is the eighth richest man in the world, a Zionist American oligarch if you will. He dumped ninety-two million dollars into support for GOP candidates in 2012. Except for keeping any patriotic immigration bills from passing the US House of Representatives, he got little for his money. This time he wants to buy a winner. According to Ari Fleisher, Bush’s old press flack and Adleson’s new collaborator, “The Sheldon Primary is an important primary and anybody running for the Republican nomination would want to have Sheldon at his side.”
So here we have it, “The Sheldon Primary;” it’s Ari’s term and presumably Adelson’s as well. The perfect primary for their purposes, no dumb Americans voting in “Sheldon’s Primary,” just dancing GOP bears looking for money. And the deal is for a war on Iran fought by the sons and daughters of the GOP suckers.
No one taking money from this man and his cronies at the Republican Jewish Coalition could possibly be a patriot. Let’s hope that Paul and perhaps, some others take the GOP in another direction.
