GOP megadonor Adelson
Publicly breaks with Bannon

Politico, by Alex Isenstadt and Josh Dawsey

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/14/2017 4:40:59 AM

Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, the GOP’s most prominent megadonor, is publicly breaking with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon over his efforts to oust Republican incumbents in 2018. “The Adelsons will not be supporting Steve Bannon’s efforts,” said Andy Abboud, an Adelson spokesman. “They are supporting Mitch McConnell 100 percent. For anyone to infer anything otherwise is wrong.” The public pronouncement comes about a month after Adelson met with Bannon in Washington. Bannon has been huddling with major Republican contributors across the country in hopes of building a war chest to take on party lawmakers. Bannon aides said they were

Again clearly Bannon is the problem and he must be Palinized.

News source is suspect. I will wait for evidence from credible sources of Adelson non-participation, not Swamp reporting.

He probably found out that he couldn’t buy him. McConnell - for as long as he lasts - is a better bet for old Shel.

There was a day I thought there was something good about Bannon, but that day is long gone. He is a hurricane out to destruct, and he is also the reason we have that disaster down south right now.

Again the futility of trying to work within the GOP structure. Bannon should be leading an effort for a new party financed by millions of small donations. Leave the billionaire donors to the UniParty.

People with a lot of money, Whether they earned it, won it, or inherited it, tend to be, "My way or the highway." Money is power, and if you want some of theirs, you better give them something, usually everything THEY want.

In this day and age, none of them are willing to do business without hanging on to government influence, and we need government out of our lives, because the only people who can make it, these days are the ones who brutally encourage that interference.

I´m sure everyone sees the problem.

It´s why the Red Chinese annihilated their upper class in their Mao-led Revolution. It´s why this is getting so dangerous in America.

We´ve become a nation led by influence-peddlers mouthing sound-bites, trying to influence a population that is getting angrier and angrier, all the while not wasting the effort in discovering or correcting the source of irritation.

This is not going to end well.

People forget that Adelson is a (actually THE) major reason why DJT is President today. He could have snuffed Trump early and instead gave him the nod of approval.

This is nothing personal - it´s business. Lots of business on the Hill and elsewhere.

Instead of attacking Bannon, why doesn´t Adelson use his money the way Soros does? Maybe we would gain some traction in changing things. I am not impressed with these republican mega donors. They strike me as people who are trying to buy politicians.

Over time now we have seen these mega donors using their money to control the government that they want it to go. And the average citizen that works every day to earn a living for their family get less and less effect on the government and what it does. And at some time in the future, those blue collar types will rise up and put a stop to what is going on in these days and times. And when they do, it will be something akin to the past Civil War. Only they won´t attempt to leave the country. They will try to repair it.

I don’t see that Adelson was the sole reason Donald Trump won the presidency. He made a big splash with a mega commitment in the 9 figures, then backed it off to $5 million. Rabidly anti-Trump Ricketts ended up putting in $1 million for Trump. Then there were Robert and Rebekah Mercer. And others.

Politico and those who disseminate their rubbish intend this piece to deal Bannon a blow and, indirectly, Trump. Transparent.

Adelson will stay with the ones he can control. I strongly doubt that anyone got a controlling interest in President Trump, money or no money...

Bannon aides told Politico that they were not surprised by Adelson´s decision, because of Adelson’s history of supporting mainstream Republicans rather than outsiders.

Bannon praised Adelson on Sunday night at the Adelson-funded Zionist Organization of America´s annual dinner.

But Adelson and his wife Miriam did not attend the event.

Growing up in Detroit, I was a huge hockey fan. After a long stretch of awful teams, the Red Wings got good, eventually leading to a string of Stanley Cup championships. It was a glorious time to be a Wings fan. In that time there were certain players who annoyed the hell out of me, all of whom played for other teams. Few bothered me more than Chris Chelios, defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks. He didn’t bother me because he was a cheap-shot artist, he bothered me because he was good. All the players on other teams annoyed me because

It was a busy news week. The president was in Asia attempting to prevent both North Korea from going nuclear and a rigged trading system from destroying the American economy. Roy Moore was attempting to hang in there so he can turn Alabama blue and turn the Senate over to the Democrats. Congress was trying to pass a tax bill that will benefit big (but not small) business and repeal the mandate that undergirds health care for the old and the sick. With all of that going on, you might have missed the really important news. Here it is: In Bonn the

Bin Laden Docs Show Obama Misled,

PJ Media, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/19/2017 4:40:57     Post Reply
"Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive" was a favorite mantra of the Obama campaign during the 2012 election. The implication was that al-Qaeda was "decimated," as President Obama said several times. But the recent release of documents taken from Osama bin Laden´s Abbottabad hideout shows that al-Qaeda, far from being "decimated," was, in fact, growing even stronger. The information was deliberately withheld from the American people by President Obama, who released just a few pages of documents in May of 2012, carefully selected to jibe with the administration´s narrative on al-Qaeda. The Weekly Standard: “The overall narrative that I think was being

College football is the greatest thing America has given the world other than jazz. And the game itself is as good as it´s ever been. Unfortunately, the College Football Playoff, now in its fourth year, is interfering with my childish — as opposed to manchildish — obsession with America´s greatest game. Every Wednesday I start asking my wife the same question. So where do you think Michigan will be in the AP next week if we beat so-and-so? What about the Coaches Poll?

If the starry list of past clientele led Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein to expect four-star accommodations in the all-male sex-addict facility, Gentle Path at The Meadows, they must have been sorely disappointed. The dorm-style, two-person rooms are reminiscent of those found in a midlevel hotel, and electronics get surrendered at the door. Books and magazines — due to their potential to trigger sexual thoughts — are verboten as well. “There are no VIP rooms or special areas for famous people,” a source told The Post of the rehabilitation and treatment center, where Spacey is reportedly being treated for sex

The spirit of the times has opened the floodgates of long-suppressed heartache. Victimized women are thus coming forward a decade or more after being abused by this political don or that show-biz celeb — who, in Al Franken’s case, could be the same guy. It is vital that we hear their stories. There should be no expectation, though, of a courtroom reckoning. While prosecution is practically impossible, that doesn’t absolve the culprits. Public office is a public trust, and weighing fitness for it is a matter of everyday discernment, not proof beyond a reasonable doubt. You know this when the

Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy.

With every debate on taxing and spending in Washington comes inevitable references to which states send more in taxes to the federal treasury than they receive in benefits for their citizens. The figures thrown around are sourced differently and vary widely, but the point of it all is for Democrats to point at poor, Republican states and call them hypocrites for doing exactly what Democrats say they should: taking money from richer places. But how much of it is true? An op-ed in The New York Times this week accuses Republicans of favoring red states over blues ones in their plans,

The Second Amendment is under siege now more than ever. Every day, we see more assaults made on our Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms. Radical gun-grabbing organizations like Moms Demand Action, Everytown for Gun Safety, and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence are just a few of the national organizations that seek to take away law abiding citizens’ guns, and it’s not much better at the university level.

A Steve Bannon–backed candidate turns out to have some serious baggage. Who could have seen that coming? Roy Moore is just the latest in a line of flawed candidates whom Bannon has zealously elevated, only to cry “Establishment!” when their flaws are laid bare. Moore, Paul Nehlen, Kelli Ward: All satisfy the thumb-in-their-eye wing of the conservative movement on the way to embarrassing defeats. Nehlen challenged House speaker Paul Ryan in the 2016 primary, but is quickly becoming a perennial candidate. “If a picture is worth a thousand words, a few of the words that describe this picture might be:

Going where no other prominent Democrat had before on Thursday evening by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the New York senator and potential 2020 presidential contender yet again found herself the face of a national conversation with the potential to dominate headlines and divide her party.

Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze.

To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday. She faces a lengthy prison term after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars that were meant to go to charity. In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992.

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings? The answers will have wide-ranging ramifications for the region, which faces staggering losses and a challenging rebuilding effort. Losses from insured properties alone are expected to far exceed $1 billion, and the total bill for the fires will be still higher. Just fighting the fires cost $189 million, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Cal Fire is
