Sheldon Adelson – Congressional Paymaster

Netanyahu Speaks, Money Talks. (Sheldon Adelson . – Congressional Paymaster)

… Netanyahu gets the best of both of Adelson’s worlds — his powerful propaganda machine in Israel and his campaign cash here in the United States. Combined, they allow Netanyahu to usurp American foreign policy as he manipulates an obliging US Congress enamored of Adelson’s millions, pushing it further to the right on Israel and the Middle East. …

… Netanyahu gets the best of both of Adelson’s worlds — his powerful propaganda machine in Israel and his campaign cash here in the United States. Combined, they allow Netanyahu to usurp American foreign policy as he manipulates an obliging US Congress enamored of Adelson’s millions, pushing it further to the right on Israel and the Middle East.

There you have it: Not only is this casino mogul the unofficial head of the Republican Party in America (“he with the gold rules”), he is the uncrowned King of Israel — David with a printing press and checkbook instead of a slingshot and a stone. All of this came to the fore in Netanyahu’s speech on Tuesday: the US cannot determine its own policy in the Middle East and the majority in Congress are under the thumb of a foreign power.

Like a King Midas colossus, Sheldon Adelson bestrides the cause of war and peace in the most volatile region of the world. And this is the man who — at Yeshiva University in New York in 2013 — denounced President Obama’s diplomatic efforts with Iran and proposed instead that the United States drop an atomic bomb in the Iranian desert and then declare: “See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.”

Everything you need to know about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress Tuesday was the presence in the visitor’s gallery of that man. We are hostage to his fortune.

Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered

April 21, 2014

The Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered: 26 Billion Bucks

Forward (New York)

http://forward.com/articles/194978/-billion-bucks-the-jewish-charity-industry-unco/

The American Jewish community’s network of charity

organizations is a font of Jewish power, a source of

communal pride and a huge mystery … The Forward’s

investigation has uncovered a tax-exempt Jewish communal

apparatus that operates on the scale of a Fortune 500

company and focuses the largest share of its donor dollars

on Israel … The Jewish community’s federations, schools,

health care and social service organizations, Israel aid

groups, cultural and communal organizations, and advocacy

groups report net assets of $26 billion … It’s an

apparatus that benefits massively from the U.S. federal

government and many state and local governments, in the

form of hundreds of millions of dollars in government

grants, billions in tax-deductible donations and billions

more in program fees paid for with government funds.

The ‘Forward’ Study of the Jewish Charity Industry

Kevin MacDonald – Occidental Observer

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/03/forward-study-of-the-jewish-charity-industry/

… These numbers for donations to Jewish charity are

underestimates because the IRS doesn’t require synagogues

to file tax returns, and the same goes for schools and

seminaries … The other way in which such a report fails

to get at the scope of financial support for Jewish ethnic

activism is that it does not include organizations that

are not explicitly Jewish but are supported by Jews for

ethnic reasons. … Consider the neocon infrastructure,

such as the Foundation for Defense of Democracies: All of

the identifiable donors are Jews …

Controlled Opposition: Sophisticated Jewish Power

Gilad Atzmon

http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/controlled-opposition-from-goldstein-to-soros-and-beyond.html

… Jewish power is actually far more sophisticated than

simply a list of Jewish lobbies or individuals performing

highly developed manipulative skills. Jewish power is the

unique capacity to stop us from discussing or even

contemplating Jewish power. It is the capacity to

determine the boundaries of the political discourse and

criticism in particular. Contrary to popular belief, it is

not ‘right wing’ Zionists who facilitate Jewish power, It

is actually the ‘good’, the ‘enlightened’ and the

‘progressive’ who make Jewish power the most effective and

forceful power in the land.

Jewish Charity Scandals Tied to Long Tenures and Weak Oversight

. four scandals in 2013 are different in their circumstances. But according to Andrés Spokoiny, president and CEO of the Jewish Funders Network, all four come down to poor oversight on the part of their boards. ….

The four 2013 scandals and the Madoff scandal are only the most high-profile recent governance flubs in Jewish not-for-profits. There have been plenty of others since 2008, like the IRS’s revocation of the Zionist Organization of America’s tax exemption for failing to file tax returns. In 2011, a clerk at UJA-Federation of New York attempted to steal donor credit card information in an identity theft scheme.

London Banking – Crooks

City of London Corporation –  Casino Banking

. the historic centre of London and the location of much of the UK’s financial sector. Until 2006, when the name was changed to avoid confusion with the wider London local government authority, the Greater London Authority, it was informally known as the Corporation of London.

The Corporation of London

 

The City of London, also known as the Corporation of London, the City of London Corporation and the Square Mile, is officially called the Mayor and Commonality and Citizens of the City of London. Though constituting only a small geographical area within Greater London itself, the City is administered by its own set of local governing bodies …

 

Tax Haven Status

 

In “Treasure Islands”, Shaxson states that “Few British people, let alone anyone else, know that the City of London is the most important financial center in the global offshore system. Before getting properly into the strangeness of this ancient city, some of its more obvious offshore qualities are worth noting. London’s first claim to be a tax haven is the subject of this chapter: its role as the creator and developer of the Euromarkets, Wall Street’s giant escape route from the checks and balances of U.S. financial regulation. Here the subsidiaries and affiliates of U.S. commercial banks have long been allowed to engage in, among many other things, investment banking—“casino banking,” as some have called it—

 

As Shaxson further explains, “London provides endless loopholes for U.S. financial corporations, and many U.S. banking catastrophes can be traced substantially to those companies’ London offices. …

Treasure Islands: Uncovering the Damage of Offshore Banking and Tax Havens

 

Treasure Islands is an expose of how the corporate world uses tax havens to shirk paying its share of taxes. This costs the United States alone 100 billion dollars in lost revenue each year. While the United States experiences a recession and European countries face bankruptcy, Nicholas Shaxson, a former correspondent for the Financial Times and The Economist, argues that the problem can be traced back to the pervasive practice of offshoring financing in order to minimize taxable revenue. Journeying from Moscow to London to Switzerland to Delaware, he dives deep into a vast and secret playground where bankers and multinational corporations operate side by side with nefarious tax evaders, organized criminals, and the world’s wealthiest citizens. This is a fast-paced narrative that at last explains how bankers, traders, and other financial wizards are using the system to deepen our economic divide.

According to Israel’s Finance Ministry, “Israel has never defaulted in the payment of principal or interest on any of its internal or external indebtedness.” According to the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress, as of 2002, approximately $40 billion in loans to Israel by the United States Government have waived by the United States Government, rather than repaid by Israel. ….

AIPAC sued for $6.6 billion

May 25, 2011

$6.64 Billion Damages Sought over Israeli Government and AIPAC Use of
Stolen Classified US Trade Data. 
http://tiny.cc/ic3xo

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS
WIRE)–Today the Section 301 Committee of the US Trade Representative
formally received a petition demanding $6.64 billion in compensation
for US exporters. In 1984 US exporters were urged to submit business
confidential data about their prices, market share, internal costs
and market strategy to the International Trade Commission. The USTR
guaranteed confidentiality and compiled the data into a classified
report for use in negotiating the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement.

The Israeli government obtained the classified USTR report and passed it
to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to use in lobbying
and public relations. Declassified FBI investigation files in the
petition reveal AIPAC’s legislative director made illicit
duplications before returning the report by order of the USTR. The
FBI interviewed Israeli Minister of Economics Dan Halpern who
admitted obtaining the classified document and giving it to AIPAC.

According to the petition Israel unfairly leveraged the business confidential
data stolen from US corporations and industry groups to create new
export oriented industries to penetrate the American market. Israel
thereby gained an unwarranted systemic advantage. ….

Our Politicians must pass Israel’s litmus Test

March 26, 2011

Most if not all senators and congressmen during elections or re-elections have to face and meet “litmus” tests of support and loyalty to Israel, making Israel and its “unconditional” support a domestic issue and a pre-condition for political office. …

 American Jewish leadership is obstacle to peace.

 . US Jewish leadership of such organizations as AIPAC, B’nai B’rith, Anti-Defamation League, Zionist Organization of America, American Jewish Congress, American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, Washington Institute for Near East Policy, the many “Israeli” shops in Washington and the many ‘self proclaimed terrorist experts” the US will never be able to break away from the choking hold these organizations and leadership have on US policy in the Middle East, notwithstanding the much lip service paid by this president and his predecessors. ….

 Mind Control Theories and Techniques used by Mass Media.

 Mass media and propaganda are therefore tools that must be used by the elite to rule the public without physical coercion. One important concept presented by Lippmann is the “manufacture of consent”, which is, in short, the manipulation of public opinion to accept the elite’s agenda. It is Lippmann’s opinion that the general public is not qualified to reason and to decide on important issues. It is therefore important for the elite to decide ”for its own good” and then sell those decisions to the masses.

“Organized crime in Israel now has global reach, with direct impact inside the US. … “Israel, a Promised Land for Organized Crime?” ….

 

“Israel, a Promised Land for Organized Crime?”, then-US Ambassador James Cunningham wrote, “Organized crime (OC) has longstanding roots in Israel, but in recent years there has been a sharp increase in the reach and impact of OC networks. In seeking a competitive advantage in such lucrative trades as narcotics and prostitution, Israeli crime groups have demonstrated their ability and willingness to engage in violent attacks on each other with little regard for innocent bystanders. …

Extradited to L.A., the Abergils – the most powerful crime families in Israel.

 

The Abergil brothers, whom federal prosecutors label one of “the most powerful crime families in Israel,” face an indictment that alleges a trail of drug dealing, murder, money laundering, racketeering and extortion, as they hopscotched from Belgium to Thailand, from Jerusalem to Miami, to Malaga in Spain, and myriad locations around the globe, including, of course, Los Angeles. …

 

Since 1999, Israel has had an agreement with the United States that extraditions of Israeli citizens for criminal proceedings in America may be permitted as long as sentences are served in Israeli prisons. ….

 

Israeli police were suddenly confronted by a crime wave. The bloody exploits of the Abergils, a large clan originating in Lod, made headlines as the gang competed with the rival Abutbul and Alperon families for the illicit receipts of money from drug smuggling, sex trafficking, kidnapping, extortion and money laundering. Laboratories controlled by these families mixed up batches of Ecstasy in the Netherlands, federal prosecutors say, and the drugs moved through Europe via long-established diamond-trading networks. Turf wars erupted into fatal bombings and vendetta shootings in Europe and Israel that included the assassination in June 2002 of Yaakov Abergil, eldest of the brothers, in front of his family. …
