Best Government Money Can Buy

Posted by M. C. on November 24, 2019

Adelson’s power over policy makers is also evident in what the White House does not do. Israeli snipers have shot dead at least 143 unarmed Arab demonstrators in Gaza without so much as a word of condemnation coming out of Washington. Indeed, the Donald Trump Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has gone out of his way to defend the killings and also to support the expansion of the illegal Israeli settlements on the West Bank.

Very few Americans know who Sheldon Adelson is and fewer still appreciate that, as America’s leading political donor, when he speaks the Republican Party listens. By virtue of his largesse, he has been able to direct GOP policy in the Middle East in favor of Israel, which might well be regarded as his true home while the United States exists more as a faithful friend that can be produced at intervals whenever Israel finds itself in need of a bit of cash or political cover.

Adelson’s recent successes in translating his political donations into policy favorable to Israel have included shifting the US Embassy to Jerusalem, cutting aid to Palestinians, ending the Iranian nuclear monitoring agreement and closing the Palestine Liberation Organization’s diplomatic office in Washington. All those Trump Administration measures were reportedly worked out privately by Adelson speaking directly with the president.

Adelson’s activities in buying politicians reflect what he believes, he reportedly having said that “there’s no such thing as a Palestinian.” Nor does his world view include much concern for the country that has sheltered him and made him wealthy. He served in the US Army in World War 2 and has said that he regrets having done so, as he would rather have worn an Israeli army uniform. He also expressed his desire that his son might become an Israeli Army sniper.

Adelson benefits from his exceptional access to the White House to the detriment of actual American interests. A New York Times article “Sheldon Adelson Sees a Lot to Like in Trump’s Washington,” states that he “enjoys a direct line to the president” and meets the president monthly “in private in-person meetings and phone conversations.” He has been delighted with the openly expressed threats emanating from the Administration’s key foreign and national security policy spokesmen regarding Iran. He would like to see the United States go to war with the Iranians to destroy their government and bring about some kind of regime change, and, judging from recent developments, he just might get what he seeks, which could easily have catastrophic consequences for the entire region and beyond.

Adelson is somewhat unhinged on the issue of Iran and has even called for dropping a nuclear bomb on a desert region of the country as a negotiating tactic to show “we mean business” so Washington could then “impose its demands [on Iran] from a position of strength.” If Iran continued to resist, Adelson would to drop the next one on Tehran. If Tehran were to be nuked millions of Iranians would die, which doesn’t bother Adelson one bit. Such a development would, in Adelson’s opinion, be good for Israel, which is his primary concern.

Adelson’s power over policy makers is also evident in what the White House does not do. Israeli snipers have shot dead at least 143 unarmed Arab demonstrators in Gaza without so much as a word of condemnation coming out of Washington. Indeed, the Donald Trump Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has gone out of his way to defend the killings and also to support the expansion of the illegal Israeli settlements on the West Bank.

Adelson is also widely believed to have had a hand in personnel changes in the White House. He has used his money and influence to advance the careers of United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, National Security Advisor John Bolton, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo while also arranging the removal of H.R. McMaster and Rex Tillerson for “being anti-Israeli” and not sufficiently willing to go to war with Iran. Defense Secretary James Mattis, the only actual adult remaining in the room when foreign policy is discussed, is believed to be the next target for removal.

How does Adelson do it? Money talks. He is worth an estimated $35 billion. His fortune came from casinos both in the US and in China, which some might consider to be promotion of vice. To buy and maintain the Republican support for right wing Zionist policies he has donated what is for him pocket change, $55 million so far this year in support of GOP candidates in the Midterm elections. In 2016, he gave large sums to the Trump campaign and to other Republicans, donating $35 million to the former and $55 million to two top Republican PACs — the Congressional Leadership Fund and the Senate Leadership Fund.

In America’s corrupt political culture, a monster like Sheldon Adelson can buy both a White House and Congress on behalf of a foreign government for a paltry $150 million or so. It is a reasonable investment for him given his views, as through him Israel is able to control a large slice of American foreign policy while also receiving billions of dollars each year from the US Treasury. And for those who think it would be different if the Democrats were in charge, think again. The Democrats have their own Adelson. His name is Haim Saban, an Israeli-American media magnate who has said he is a “one issue guy and my issue is Israel.” He is also the largest individual contributor to the Democratic Party.

Boeing names ex-US envoy Nikki Haley to board of directors

Posted by M. C. on February 27, 2019

Top Washington warmonger golden parachutes into Boeing. The Pentagram remains in charge.

Remember when Boeing wanted to build a non-union plant in Haley’s S Carolina?

https://thedefensepost.com/2019/02/26/boeing-names-nikki-haley-board/

Boeing on Tuesday, February 26 named Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to its board of directors.

Haley, who left the United Nations post and President Donald Trump’s administration at the end of 2018, previously served as governor of South Carolina, a southern state where Boeing has a significant manufacturing campus.

She praised Boeing as “a cutting edge industry leader” that “also understands the importance of teamwork and building community through its network of suppliers in all 50 states and around the world,” according to a statement released by the company.

Boeing’s 12-member board currently has four women. Shareholders will vote on Haley’s nomination on April 29.

The aerospace giant is weighing the launch of a new medium-sized aircraft to accompany its current fleet, which includes the twin-aisle 787 Dreamliner that is partly built in South Carolina.

Boeing garnered about 60 percent of its 2018 revenues from commercial aircraft with almost 25 percent from defense and space and the remainder from global services…

Forever War, Evermore: The Congressional Left Saves NATO, Trump Goes Empire First – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. on February 1, 2019

Abrams is among the most rabid neocon interventionists to ever ply his trade in Washington and was one of the chief architects of the disastrous US invasion of Iraq in 2003. In a national capital that was not obsessed with the business of Empire, Abrams would not be given the time of day.

So there you have it. The progressive Left is now defining the nitwit warmongering neocon, Nikki Haley, as a hero!

The past week has brought still more evidence that America is fiscally doomed owing to the twin burdens of the Welfare State and Warfare State. The latter, of course, is demographically and politically immovable owing to the coming tsunami of Baby Boom retirements and the absolute cowardice of the GOP when it comes to curtailing the social security and medical entitlements and performing its job as the tribune of fiscal rectitude in American democracy.

But the Warfare State’s grip on the nation’s finances is no less forbidding, as we learned from two new outbreaks of Empire First in Washington. That is, the Donald’s embrace of gung-ho interventionism in Venezuela and the 100% vote of the newly elected liberal firebrands in the U.S. House for preservation of NATO… Read the rest of this entry »

Empire Loyalists Grieve Resignation Of Moderate Psychopath Nikki Haley – Caitlin Johnstone

Posted by M. C. on October 11, 2018

https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/10/10/empire-loyalists-grieve-resignation-of-moderate-psychopath-nikki-haley/

Caitlin Johnstone

World War Three proponent and US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has announced her resignation today, to the dismay of establishment bootlickers everywhere.

“Nikki Haley, ambassador to the United Nations, has resigned, leaving the administration with one less moderate Republican voice,” tweeted the New York Times, without defining what specifically is “moderate” about relentlessly pushing for war and starvation sanctions at every opportunity and adamantly defending the slaughter of unarmed Palestinian protesters with sniper fire.

“Too bad Nikki Haley has resigned,” tweeted law professor turned deranged Russia conspiracy theorist Laurence Tribe. “She was one of the last members of Trumplandia with even a smidgen of decency.”

“Thank you @nikkihaley for your remarkable service. We look forward to welcoming you back to public service as President of the United States,” tweeted Mark Dubowitz, Chief Executive of the neoconservative think tank/covert Israeli war psyop firm Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

“Thank you @nikkihaley for your service in the @UN and unwavering support for Israel and the truth,” tweeted the fucking IDF. “The soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces salute you!”

I’m not going to go over every single fawning, sycophantic tweet, but if you ever ingest poison and can’t afford to go to the hospital because of America’s disastrous healthcare system, you can always try going to Haley’s Twitter page and looking at all the empire loyalists she’s been retweeting who’ve been falling all over themselves to paint her as something other than the bloodthirsty psychopath that she is. If that doesn’t empty your stomach contents all over your screen, you are made of stronger stuff than I. Read the rest of this entry »

Has Russia Given Up on the West? – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on September 21, 2018

the McCain wing of the Republican Party has sought to bring Ukraine and Georgia into NATO, which would make the containment of Russia America’s policy in perpetuity.

“Hero” McCain has left US more than the POW coverup.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is berating Russia…

Nikki Haley is dangerously stupid.

By 

By the end of his second term, President Ronald Reagan, who had called the Soviet Union an “evil empire,” was strolling through Red Square with Russians slapping him on the back.

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive.

And how have we husbanded the fruits of our Cold War triumph?

This month, China’s leader-for-life Xi Jinping stood beside Vladimir Putin as 3,000 Chinese troops maneuvered with 300,000 Russians, 1,000 planes and 900 tanks in Moscow’s largest military exercise in 40 years.

An uncoded message to the West from the East.

Richard Nixon’s great achievement in bringing Peking in from the cold, and Reagan’s great achievement of ending the Cold War, are history.

Bolshevism may be dead, but Russian nationalism, awakened by NATO’s quick march to Russia’s ancient frontiers, is alive and well. Read the rest of this entry »

America’s Word Is Worthless – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on May 10, 2018

Will Russia finally wake up and stop inviting more dangerous situations by her extraordinary indecisiveness? If Putin doesn’t put his foot down, he is going to get us all killed.

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/05/08/americas-word-worthless/

Paul Craig Roberts

We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers.

Scarier than John Bolton?, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

Posted by M. C. on April 25, 2018

Worse than John Bolton? Absolutely.

Nikki Haley

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/scarier-than-john-bolton/

In the Trumpean world of all-the-time-stupid, there is, however, one individual who stands out for her complete inability to perceive anything beyond threats of unrelenting violence combined with adherence to policies that have already proven to be catastrophic. That person is our own Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who surfaced in the news lately after she unilaterally and evidently prematurely announced sanctions on Russia.

‘You’re done!’ Morning Mika cuts off hardball interview with ‘Fire and Fury’ author after he DENIES suggesting Nikki Haley is sleeping with Donald Trump

Posted by M. C. on February 1, 2018

Even Wolff says he doesn’t know if what he wrote is true.  We are supposed to figure it out!

What I figured out is: Anti-trump people scraped through the bottom of the barrel and found a steaming pile, Michael Wolff.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5340551/Youre-Morning-Mika-cuts-Michael-Wolff-interview.html

A ‘Morning Joe’ interview with ‘Fire & Fury’ author Michael Wolff on Thursday abruptly ended after he dodged questions about his insinuation that President Donald Trump is cheating on the first lady with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski delivered the writer’s long-awaited public spanking on MSNBC. Wolff quickly rushed to Twitter in damage-control mode.

Nikki Haley Attacks Iran, Forgets Her Country Is Currently Bombing Seven Nations – American Herald Tribune

Posted by M. C. on January 10, 2018

https://ahtribune.com/us/trump-at-war/2062-nikki-haley-iran.html

On December 14, Haley once again disgraced herself on the international stage, when she displayed a missile that she claimed Iran delivered to rebels in Yemen. This, she warned darkly, was just further evidence of Iran’s nefarious purposes.

During this speech, delivered inside a military hanger in Washington, D.C., she made this amazing statement: Iran’s “ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region.”

Is it possible that she is either not aware of the fact, or is trying to distract from it, that the U.S.’s ‘ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region’? The U.S. is currently bombing seven nations. Read the rest of this entry »

Nikki Haley: The Bold Scold of the Trump Administration | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. on December 31, 2017

When you are trying to rule the world you need a lot of useful idiots.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/nikki-haley-the-bold-scold-of-the-trump-administration/

As governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley didn’t have much need to worry about foreign policy. Yet for reasons unknown (other than perhaps her Indian heritage), Donald Trump tapped her to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. There, she has performed to perfection, offering a model of the hubris and lack of awareness that consistently characterize U.S. foreign policy.

What makes America different from other nations when it comes to foreign policy is the certainty that it is the right—indeed, the duty—of Americans to run the world. That means telling everyone everywhere what they should do, not just internationally, but in their own nations, too… Read the rest of this entry »
