Gingrich’s Major Backer Arch-Zionist Sheldon Adelson

Gingrich’s Major Backer Arch-Zionist Sheldon Adelson

Adelson’s money enabled Gingrich to win South Carolina, and Adelson could put much more into Gingrich’s campaign.

by Stephen Sniegoski

Gingrich’s faltering presidential campaign was completely resuscitated by a 5 million donation from Las Vegas casino king and super-Zionist  Sheldon Adelson.  (According to Wikipedia, Adelson is currently the 8th wealthiest American and 16th wealthiest person in the world, with a net worth of $23.3 billion.) Rising from the ashes, Gingrich now has won the South Carolina primary and has a  decent  chance of becoming the Republican presidential nominee.

Adelson has been the major backer of Gingrich for some time. A Washington Post  article on  the Adelson-Gingrich connection (though kept out of the first section of the paper) states:  “Perhaps no other major presidential candidate in recent times has had his fortunes based so squarely on the contributions of a single donor, as Gingrich has on Adelson, who has spent millions in support of Gingrich and his causes over the past five years.”

As the Washington Post article points out, Adelson and his Israeli-born wife, Miriam, have spent time and money lobbying  for a bill to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Gingrich has promised that his first executive order as president would be the embassy move.

Adelson is an ardent Zionist. Since 2007 the Adelson Family Foundation has made contributions totaling $100 million to Birthright Israel, which finances Jewish youth trips to Israel, Adelson is such a hard-line Zionist that he even stopped supporting  AIPAC when it appeared to support a 2007 peace initiative championed by Olmert, President Bush, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

In 2009, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), which is a hard-line Zionist group that wants Israel to retain the occupied territories and expand the Jewish settlements,  presented  Adelson its most distinguished and historic award, the Theodor Herzl Gold Medallion for outstanding achievement in Zionism.  His wife received the Louis D. Brandeis Award. The couple now have  their names on one of ZOA’s major awards, the Dr. Miriam & Sheldon Adelson Defender of Israel Award.

Adelson is intimately involved in Israeli politics. Since 2007, Adelson has owned a daily newspaper in Israel  called Israel Hayom, which distributed free of charge, has the largest circulation of any newspaper in the country.  The newspaper is  ultra-supportive of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,  to whom Adelson is a close ideological ally and personal friend.  The newspaper also has been doing much to promote Gingrich.

It should be recalled  that Gingrich was so extreme as to recently say that the Palestinians are an “invented people.”  Shortly thereafter, Adelson said that Gingrich had been completely correct. In an address at a Hanukkah celebration in Israel for hundreds of youths visiting that country as part of the Taglit Birthright (Birthright Israel) program (which Adelson funds), Adelson stated: “Read the history of those who call themselves Palestinians, and you will hear why [Newt] Gingrich said recently that the Palestinians are an invented people. There are a number of Palestinians who will recognize the truth of this statement.”  He appealed to  the Jewish youths to “speak in support of Israel” when they returned to their countries.

When  on the NBC show Rock Center,   Ted Koppel asked Gingrich about the reason for Adelson’s support, Gingrich was quite frank: “He knows I'm very pro Israel. That's the central value of his life. I mean, he's very worried that Israel is going to not survive.”

If  Israel is the “central value” of Adelson’s life (which certainly appears to be true), he is one Jewish American who cannot be accused of having a “dual loyalty.”  His loyalty is truly singular!

Like most American conservatives, Gingrich purports  to identify with the wisdom of the Founding Fathers, but catering to a person with a view such as Adelson’s puts Gingrich in a position completely  opposite to that of George Washington, who, in his Farewell Address of 1796, warned Americans of the grave danger of those who had a  “passionate attachment” to a foreign country.

While the mainstream media has focused on the negative effects  of big money super pacs, and shows no particular fondness for Gingrich, it makes little reference to his major patron’s identification with Israel. In fact, Rachel Maddow and Michael Isikoff even managed to offer a critical presentation of Adelson’s financing of Gingrich without any reference to Israel.

Even the  Washington Post’s article on Adelson was not in the major, news section of the paper. And there was no follow up on the NBC program  to Gringrich’s response about his major patron’s fundamental concern being Israel—“the central value of his life.”  The fact of the matter is that the impact of the Israel lobby on American politics is a taboo issue in the United States mainstream. 

When  the Republicans presidential candidates (Ron Paul being the exception)  have talked about foreign policy, it often seems that they are running for the top spot in the Israeli Likud Party, rather than President of the United States of America.   Consequently, it is difficult for any candidate to outdo his competitors.  However, Sheldon Adelson’s financial backing of Gingrich would seem to indicate that he is the best candidate from the standpoint of the Israeli Right. And Gingrich might go a little farther than his competitors since he even suggests clemency for Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.

Adelson’s money enabled Gingrich to win South Carolina, and Adelson could put much more into Gingrich’s campaign.  With such  financial support, Gingrich might be able to gain the Republican presidential nomination, but it would seem that he has too much baggage to actually defeat Obama, at least this is the conventional wisdom–though stranger things have happened. Nonetheless, having  pro-Israel Republican candidates led by Gingrich  pushes Obama in a more pro-Israel direction, which entails a harder US line toward Iran.  No matter what happens in the US presidential election, therefore, US Middle East policy will be improved from the Likudnik perspective. And this is Sheldon Adelson’s objective.

“This video exposes Israel’s increasing role in American politics, which has led to the Iraq war, September 11, 2001, and a great deal of other tragedies that have befallen the United States.

Israel’s lobby in America, AIPAC, is the only foreign agent in America that does not have to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act. Almost every major American politician in the last decade has either met with AIPAC or flown to Israel to receive approval before running a campaign. Many of America’s congressman have admitted that they constantly ask how Israel feels about a bill before voting on it.

And, on a side note, this video exposes how American zionists like Sheldon Adelson pay politicians such as Newt Gingrich to attack Ron Paul because he doesn’t support Israel. Now we know why Gingrich called Paul’s foreign policy “dangerous.”

Goldman Sachs was the largest contributor to President Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign and it has been widely estimated that American supporters of Israel contribute between 35-75% of all political contributions in American elections.”

Israel creates a super PAC — Emergency Committee

Sheldon Adelson,saying he "unfortunately" wore the uniform of the American military not the Israeli army, and that he wants his son to be a sniper for the Israeli army (4:45 on). "All we care about is being good citizens of Israel."

      Give me ten seconds and I will have them tied up in a chair with a full bladder until they tell me who did 9-11 and was nanothermate available for the WTC contractors in 1968. And believe me, I would leave them tied up for ten years or more until I got the truth. If I was twenty yers late to ask questions, no worry.

    Isreali money or no – there is only one way Gingrich will win (or, rather Ron Paul lose!) the nomination – the same way as he won South Carolina – massive voter fraud.

    Lord Rothchild pet project was the creation of his colony in the middle east.  In 1872 he loaned 4 million pounds to purchase the Suez Canal.  He then created a situation which bankrupted Egypt and shortly the british troops occupied Egypt.   Occupied Egypt provided the land base to attack the Ottoman Empire.  The occuped Egypt happened 20 years before the state of WWI.  This should provide a good clue about how the long term planning of the arch zionist Lord rothchild.
    Today we face another war for the benefit of the zionist.  Iran needs to be eliminated or Israel will not be able to attack neighbors.  Iran provides weapons to the defenseless.  Defenseless people is the desirable victims of the zionist warriors.  
    The prostitution of Newt is just another example of the powers of the big bucks of those who see the USA as a source of bodies for cannon fodder.
    We need to get people to understand the powers of this group and eliminate thier power over our elected officials.  Newt is not going any place.  You can slap lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.

    It will be a fantastic return on Edelson's $5 million investment in Newt if the US "does" Iran for Israel and loses its magnificents soldiers in this endeavor, expends great wealth yet again for foreign-Israel, upsets the non-Israel ME, and burdens the US taxpayers again for Israel – a VERY foreign country. Never is Israel accoutable i.e USS Liberty and Pollard and the song goes on.

    For the record : The Children of Israel have never been, and cannot be the so-called "Jews". The Ashkenazim "Proselytes" [Khazars] are not Hebrews, NOT semitic, and Not from the Tribe of Judah. Israel cannot be a "Jewish" Psychopathic political entity for zionazi TALMUDIC terrorists in Palestine engaging in Identity Teft, fraud, MASS MURDER and well, "Jewishness"…which is the DE FACTO manifestation of BAD FAITH. Noticing that Pro-Life Americans are identified by CSPAN as anti-choice, the Anti-Christ so-called "Jews" cannot be a "Jewish" without adhering to the Tenets of BAD FAITH…Talmudic Judaism….a Hate the Truth…Religion….of Ashkenazim KHAZAR…"Proselytes".
    and incidentally a plant is not the enemy of Americans, unless they a psychophants worshipping Lying Murderers who print currency and Own the Media…!

    Why does the word Zionist have such a negative response from some people?  What are they afraid of? Our Lord has blessed this people from the outset.They Shall prevail!

    Being an Armenian American I find it apalling how Zionists use the holocaust as a tool to further their greedy agenda.Many civilizations and peoples have been pursecuted throughout history. We are being pushed to the edge of oblivion with the current situation in Iran. Both the U.S. and Israeli governments know that Iran's centrifuges cannot produce weapons grade material. I can't help but believe that the thirst for power and money by the neo-cons and zionists is leading the world into chaos. Bob Marley said it best when he stated " It's too late , nobody can stop them now." !! Only God can intervene now.
