Yesterday a window opened, one quickly closing. Major newspapers and news outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Reuters and others announced and the billionaire gambling “magnate,” some call him “mob boss” who runs gambling from Las Vegas to China where he is fighting bribery charges, is facing a major criminal investigation.
Billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s goal is to buy an American attack on Iran by using money now tied to a criminal investigation to buy extremist candidate Mitt Romney the presidency.
Yesterday, Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal made the following announcement about Sheldon Adelson’s organization:
“The investigation involves Zhenli Ye Gon (who has been indicted on counts of trafficking methamphetamine ingredients) and Ausaf Umar Siddiqui, (a former executive of Fry’s Electronics who went to jail on bribe charges) who wired tens of millions of dollars to the Sands Venetian casino in Las Vegas during the mid-2000s.
According to the WSJ, the government is investigating whether the Sands ignored the wire transfers or failed to have the right systems in place to flag sketchy activity. Sands chief Sheldon Adelson is not under investigation.
…The case is one more legal headache for Sands CEO Adelson, a major Republican donor, who has given more than $10 million to the Super PAC of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and pledged to give a “limitless” amount of money to defeat Barack Obama.”
Murdoch was careful to let his close friend, Adelson, “off the hook” by announcing that Adelson was NOT subject to an investigation that is, in fact, highly classified. The WSJ story is a “white wash” as Murdoch, an Israeli citizen as are the Koch Brothers, make up, with Adelson, the “triumvirate of sleaze” that buys and sells, using cash, wiretapping, Mossad agents, blackmail, many of the world’s governments.
As Adelson’s staff is facing prison for laundering cash for, not just drug dealers but suspected terrorists, Murdoch has been under a year of investigation for blackmail and wiretapping in Britain and may well face the same in the US. His top staff members face decades in prison while he and his son are still free.
The other third of the triumvirate are the Israeli Koch brothers who control the world’s gasoline futures and wholesale market. On a whim last week, they raised gasoline prices by nearly .80 cents a gallon, taxing the American people hundreds of billions of dollars.
Why? An attack on the American economy prior to the election or simply more monopoly profiteering is a standard ploy used by the Israeli and “bankster” lobby to create fear and panic.
Murdoch’s stranglehold on the world’s news organizations sets the stage while Adelson, with the Koch brothers, literally own most of America’s government.
The cabal, with its control of the U.S. House of Representatives, America’s courts, police agencies, and financial regulators, combined with their partnership with worldwide arms and oil interests, has made the idea of free elections in America impossibility.
What changed yesterday is that, here in the US, Adelson, who has given hundreds of millions of dollars to pro-Israel candidates and personally financed groups pushing for war with Iran has now had his “organization” tied directly to organized crime.
SODOM AND GOMORRAH IN AMERICA
Adelson owns much of Las Vegas, the inheritor of the early crime families of the 1920s and 30s, Bugsy Siegel, Arnold Rothstein and their “Murder Incorporated” organization seen in films such as The Godfather II, Once Upon A Time in America and the HBO TV series by director Martin Scorsese, Boardwalk.
Decades have been spent trying to put an Italian face on American organized crime whose roots trace back to criminal groups, fellow Jews, that preyed on Jewish immigrants that came into the US at the end of the 19thcentury. The “Italian Mafia” was, at most, a minor sub note to the groups that later emerged as “Zionist” organizations, Jewish “defense” groups and the Israel lobby, whose activities, gambling, prostitution, money laundering, espionage and “murder for hire” established the basis for America’s current relationship with Israel, a very “one sided” one at that.
AUTHOR DOCUMENTS CRIMES
Author Jeff Gates, former lawyer for the US Senate Taxation Committee, describes this history in his book,Guilt by Association and in his website, www.criminalstate.com. What is important about Gates is that he is a difficult target, a trained scholar with strong relationships within the American Jewish community, he sticks with facts and education and limits rhetoric and editorializing.
It has been a key methodology, used by these criminal organizations, to fund or create their own opposition groups and then characterize all who work to enforce honest elections and protect the public from organized crime as “anti-Semites.”
AMERICAN JEWS “PUSHED ASIDE” BY WAR LOBBY
Oddly, nearly 80% of America’s Jews politically support the “other side,” voting consistently against candidates financed by Adelson, Murdoch and the Koch “boys.” For those with a detailed knowledge of American politics, the truth of it is that “the right,” where the “triumvirate” is closely aligned, consists of political groups that have a long history of organized discrimination against Jews in the United States.
For decades, Jews, African Americans and even Catholics were barred from organizations, weren’t allowed to live in some communities, even persecuted in entire states. In truth, the roots of the religious groups that represent “Christian Zionism” are racism and persecution of American Jews. Near my own home is the “Jewish golf course,” the only place “they” could play until only a few decades ago. The term “Restricted,” seen on signs across America meant “No Jews Allowed” and was always tied to the American “right” and the Republican Party and the candidates funded by Adelson, Murdoch and Koch.
Their way of combating this hate is not by fomenting justice but by redirecting it toward fear and hatred of Muslims, donating endless millions to anti-Muslim organizations and using their huge press and entertainment resources to create images of Muslims as extremist and dangerous.
STOPPING A WAR BY STOPPING ORGANIZED CRIME
Russia Today, aided by sources from Reuters, who censored their own story, broke the following news today about Israel’s actual “war plans” on Iran:
“Israel’s threats that it could attack Iran at any time appear to be a tactical ploy, after a government insider revealed that no military plans against Tehran have been discussed by Israel’s top ministers for “months.”
The information was leaked to news agency Reuters by a highly-placed official who has been briefed on all the meetings of the octet – an inner council of the top eight Israeli ministers, presided over by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The insider also confirmed rumors that the octet had factionalized, with hawkish Netanyahu held back by top military and security officials who are “entirely against” an Israel-led attack on Tehran’s nuclear program, believing the country does not have the necessary resources for a war with its much bigger rival.
“It is very, very difficult to see a situation where a prime minister will go against the advice not just of the former heads of Mossad and Shin Bet, but most of the military commanders,” commented Uzi Rabi, director of Tel Aviv’s Moshe Dayan Centre for Middle Eastern Studies.”
Critical to the central theme is the realization that the United States is, despite their own rhetoric, very unwilling to follow Israeli policy while Obama is still in office. This is why the “triumvirate” of “dual citizens” tied to organized crime, money laundering and worse are supporting policies directly opposed by American Jews who, in general, oppose all wars and seldom serve in the military.
Millions are spent, less and less effectively, repeating the “war and fear” message to American and Israeli Jews, a message that no longer “sells” so easily. The story continues:
“…Washington may well call Israel’s bluff, partly because of the havoc any large military operation would cause to the prospects of President Barack Obama’s re-election in November’s presidential poll.
“It would not be healthy for Israeli-US relations to carry out such a significant attack that might influence the election. So my guess is they won’t do it before early November, because it might embarrass the US administration,” says Ephraim Kam, Deputy Director of the Institute for National Security Studies.
What could happen after that is anybody’s guess. While Obama has been the very model of caution, his Republican rival Mitt Romney has adopted a hard-line stance.
“We must not delude ourselves into thinking that containment is an option,” he said during a recent visit to Israel, while his senior foreign policy aide promises Romney will not condemn any Israeli strike on Iranian facilities.”
Thus the flow of money from financial crimes, gambling, prostitution and economic blackmail continues to flow into America’s “pro-Israeli” right. However, a closer examination of the “right” shows them to be oil companies, the arms industry and a series of financial institutions seeking relief from controls and investigations that threaten their further attacks on America and the world’s currencies.
The election, funded as though it was about Iran or imaginary nuclear weapons is, as have been so many others, over the right to steal with impunity, for the powerful to remain immune from laws and regulation and for the working people and small businessmen and women of the world to see their future destroyed behind a façade of war.
Today, news organizations around the world are “cleansing” their publications of reports of Adelson’s criminal associates. The reason?
Hundreds of millions of dollars already donated over the years would have to be returned, all deemed “illegal campaign contributions,” and subjecting everyone from Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin to the entire GOP including Mitt Romney to criminal prosecution for violation of election laws.
Even money spent long ago would have to be returned, bribes that financed wars long lost, bribes that financed the downfall of the western economies and American freedoms and paid for the murder of thousands of innocents throughout the Middle East and Central Asia are now deemed “illegal campaign contributions.”
