    Sheldon Adelson. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheldon_Adelson

    … New Yorker article that Adelson “seeks to dominate politics and public policy through the raw power of money.” …
    http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/06/30/080630fa_fact_bruck?currentPage=all

    In 2007 Sheldon Adelson founded the 527 lobbying group Freedom’s Watch, a group that advocates America’s continued involvement in the war in Iraq, and is run and supported, in part, by former officials of the Bush administration. It has unsuccessfully financed several Republican congressional candidates and originally had intended to raise as much as $250 million to attack Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Obama and McCain both stated they wanted such groups to stay out of the presidential election. A Freedom’s Watch spokesperson said it would focus on congressional campaigns.

    Freedom Watch: It was founded by a 12 people, most notably Sheldon Adelson, who donated almost all of its initial funding … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom%27s_Watch

    A 527 organization or 527 group is a type of American tax-exempt organization named after a section of the United States tax code, 26 U.S.C. § 527. A 527 group is created primarily to influence the nomination, election, appointment or defeat of candidates for public office. Although candidate committees and political action committees are also created under Section 527, the term is generally used to refer to political organizations that are not regulated by the Federal Election Commission or by a state elections commission, and are not subject to the same contribution limits as PACs. However, On September 18, 2009 the Washington D.C Federal Appeals Court ruled that these groups have a First Amendment right to raise and spend freely to influence elections so long as they do not coordinate their activities with a candidate or a party.

    Fed Made Taxpayers Unwitting Junk-Bond Buyers.
    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and then-New York Fed President Timothy Geithner told senators on April 3, 2008, that the tens of billions of dollars in “assets” the government agreed to purchase in the rescue of Bear Stearns Cos. were “investment-grade.” They didn’t share everything the Fed knew about the money. …
    The government also became the owner of $16 billion of credit-default swaps, and taxpayers wound up guaranteeing high-yield, high-risk junk bonds.

    Scrap dollar as sole reserve currency: U.N. Report.
    (Reuters) – A new United Nations report released on Tuesday calls for abandoning the U.S. dollar as the main global reserve currency, saying it has been unable to safeguard value.
    The report supports replacing the dollar with the International Monetary Fund’s special drawing rights (SDRs), an international reserve asset that is used as a unit of payment on IMF loans and is made up of a basket of currencies.

    Top Secret America . … A hidden world, growing beyond control

    The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.

    Zionism, Militarism and the Decline of US Power. By James Petras (Author)

    Dr. Petras cuts to the heart of the issues and completely dissects the Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) in America. …

    … A brilliant section, taking up two large chapters of the book, demonstrates that it is the ZPC that’s at the forefront in rallying the United States to take up a war against Iran. Its media mouthpieces, executive branch minions and legislative lapdogs, all are beating the war drums, while only top U.S. military brass are issuing well thought out warnings against this insane rush to fight the Persian state. This internal battle within the ruling elites of America: the powerful Israel-Firsters vs independent upper echelon Pentagon analysts is looked at in great detail by Petras. …
