Our candidates are selected and funded by rich, white men. In some cases by rich, white Jewish men who uphold the Israeli government’s agenda. Is that treason? Probably. Do our votes count? Probably not. You might as well know this before stepping into the ballot box in 2016; our elections are owned and democracy no longer exists. Our government, the justice system and indeed, the United States are also owned. Not by the People. Did you know that our votes are counted in secret and that is illegal?
Who Owns Us?
Over the past several years a lot of talk on the left has been about the Koch Brothers. The left has blamed them for everything that has gone wrong in the way of elections, money and general government. A daring duo team of fossil fuel barons, owners of political action committees (PACS), corporate and political fund fountains, i.e. the darlings of the 1% who have poured over $900 million dollars of their own money into the 2016 elections.
The latest corporate media story states that they should return $157 million in government subsidies.
What do YOU think?
Then, Along Comes Sheldon Adelson…
Sheldon Adelson, the casino owner and political funder is part of this mix. For those of you who do not know Adelson, he was the main money man and spent more than $4 million of his own in support of the opposition campaign against Florida’s Amendment 2 in 2014 in order to defeat the Medical Marijuana bill.
What voters saw before the elections were slicked up, disinformation ads during prime time on why they should not vote YES on Amendment 2. What Florida voters needed was a super majority to win — so 60% of the vote or more in favor. What Florida voters got was 59%.
Perhaps a little vote tampering or a slight readjustment of the numbers? This is certainly not unheard of in Florida.
Before the opposition campaign began the numbers in support of Amendment 2 were much higher.
Important to note is Adelson’s wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson who owns two drug research centers and rehabs, one in Las Vegas and one in Tel Aviv. Wouldn’t this be a conflict of interest aside from its hypocrisy? It really is all about that cash … ’bout that cash … ’bout that cash.
Adelson Is Attempting To Buy 2016
GOP hopefuls and possible presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Mike Pence and Rick Perry are going to Las Vegas in April to hold audience before Sheldon Adelson and other major Jewish political purses including Florida’s well known property and real estate magnate, Mel Sembler, a former ambassador during Bush’s presidency.
Ohio Senator Rob Portman will be joining them and working on his own campaign funding in support of a 2016 reelection campaign. Portman will also address the Republican Jewish Coalition on April 25th, 2015.
Is this really a political coalition or a gang of fat-wallet thugs?
Adelson Also Owns Israel’s Elections!
According to the latest reports Adelson also funded Netanyahu’s campaign. He has also manipulated existing policies, advised, controlled the corporate media while funding settler expansion in the country of Israel to the tune of millions. He has maintained his place as one of the chief political backers and contributors of Israel’s political scene for many years per the latest report from Salon.
““I don’t think the Bible says anything about democracy. I think God didn’t say anything about democracy. God talked about all the good things in life. He didn’t talk about Israel remaining as a democratic state, otherwise Israel isn’t going to be a democratic state — so what?” Sheldon Adelson, The Jewish Daily Forward.
It is the world according to Adelson.
