Sheldon Adelson Sees A Lot To Like In Trump’s Washington

If you are wondering what happened to the priorities of the Trump administration and the GOP Congress, look no further than this story from September:

“WASHINGTON — The return on investment for many of the Republican Party’s biggest political patrons has been less than impressive this year. But not for Sheldon Adelson.

Mr. Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate, and his wife, Miriam, a physician, have emerged as the biggest and potentially most influential contributors to Republicans in the midterm season. Despite initially harboring qualms about President Trump’s leadership, the Adelsons have found much to like in a Republican-controlled government that has aligned with their most cherished priorities: unflinchingly pro-Israel, unaccommodating to Middle Eastern adversaries and dedicated to deregulation and lower taxes.

Mr. Adelson in particular enjoys a direct line to the president. In private in-person meetings and phone conversations, which occur between the two men about once a month, he has used his access to push the president to move the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and, more recently, cut aid to the Palestinians, according to people familiar with their discussions, who spoke anonymously to discuss private matters. Mr. Trump has done both, triggering a backlash from some American allies.

Republican control of the House and the Senate is so vital to maintaining these policies, the Adelsons believe, that they have given $55 million in the last few months to groups dedicated to making sure it stays that way. That makes them not only the largest donors to national Republican electoral efforts in this election cycle, but the biggest spenders on federal elections in all of American politics, according to publicly available campaign finance data. …”

– Pro-Israel stuff

– Deregulation

– Low taxes

– Neocon foreign policy

What does that sound like? It sounds like the actual policies the Republican Party has pursued over the past two years, not to be confused with the noise on the Twitter feed. What impact do you think the Pittsburgh shooting is going to have on the GOP when these wealthy Jewish donors are calling the shots?

  1. I know it sucks, but we must utilize the Republican party as our own. We sure as fuck cannot allow the anti-white Democrat party to win!

      • Heads they win. Tails we lose. Apart from voting for a handful of “decent” Republicans on the state or federal level you might as well stay home on election day. Even the best, or least worse, Republicans aren’t pro-White.

    • @Richard
      The Democrats are openly anti-White/the Republicans pretend not to be anti-White. After the election campaigns are over, they only listen to their big money donors:

      “Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.”

      “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it. ”

    • Dewey, aren’t you tired of riding on that Republican-Democrat merry go round yet? Voting is going to solve nothing. The real power comes from billionaire kike gangsters like Adelson.

      But hey, go ahead and fantasize about how you’re going to magically take control of the GOP and turn it into a party of “white nationalists” if you want to. Maybe you can get Azzmador, Anglin and Ricky Vaughn to help you.

    • >Voting will only get you jury duty.

      Hrm. Not me.

      I’ve only had jury duty once in my life. Lawyer asked me about the N-word (nullification). I should have played dumb but I was 20 at the time and didn’t realize it. I answered truthfully, got the boot, haven’t seen the inside of a courtroom since; that was 12 years ago.

      Yeah, pretty sure they blacklisted me.

  2. You don’t shell out 55 million to scumbag, traitorous politicians and expect nothing in return. Which of course raises a question: Why are a handful of billionaires allowed to influence the outcome of an election and dictate foreign and domestic policies to the winners?

  3. I don’t know, I’ve got some money riding on the Republicans to hold the House.

    Help a White brother out, gentlemen — go vote so I can cash in and help pay the bills for my family. 😉

  4. A lot of older boomers and even older conservatives on Breitbart comments are turning on Trump over his lack of action on immigration and noticing that foreign policy is occupying Trump’s attention. But then the alt-right is just stuck in mindless Trump meme mode and not concerned with petty matters like policy.

    We have seen a disintegration of the alt-right into a Trump worship cult with no positions.

    Alt-right leaders failed to give a sound ideological education to all the new people who came starting in 2015.
