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

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.

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.

The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to hear a challenge to the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban. It had been struck down by lower courts—a Hawaii district court and affirming Ninth Circuit—that seemed to place their hostility to the president above the law, which grants the chief executive clear discretion on such matters relating to immigration and national security. Back in February 2017, after the Ninth Circuit struck down the first version of the travel ban, Eric Posner, a liberal critic of both President Trump and his policy, recognized that the courts may be creating a “‘Trump exception’

As president, Barack Obama repeatedly mocked Donald Trump’s political ambitions, laughing at the idea of Trump ever winning the presidency. Obama mocked Trump in 2011 for calling into question whether he was born in America. The state of Hawaii later released Obama’s longform birth certificate to put the matter to rest. Obama viciously mocked Trump for the controversy, before mocking the idea of Trump ever serving in the White House.(Snip)A month before the 2016 election, Obama mocked Trump’s campaign on “Jimmy Kimmel.” Obama read a tweet from Trump saying that Obama “will go down as perhaps the worst president in the

Day One of a government shutdown, filled with increasingly angry finger pointing from both Democrats and Republicans, appeared to produce little Saturday in terms of a potential solution for the impasse on how to fund the government. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that a vote to break a Democratic filibuster on a short-term spending bill to reopen the government would happen by 1 a.m. Monday. "I asked for consent to move up a vote on this bipartisan solution and end this craziness. The Democrats objected," McConnell said late Saturday, Roll Call reported. "That won´t work forever.

Senate Democrats have blocked a bill to keep the federal government running and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program for the next six years. They have, that is, partially shut the government down. They have taken this step not because of any strong objection to provisions of the funding bill but because it omits a provision they want: an amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to our country as minors. Most Republicans, including President Trump, favor this amnesty as well, but the parties have been unable to agree on what other policies, such as restrictions on follow-on immigration from the

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper. As the clock runs out on the Clapper prosecution, Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) have charged that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen committed perjury when she insisted that she could not recall if President Donald Trump called Haiti and African countries

This may seem like an odd moment for saying so, but a year into the presidency of Donald Trump, I’m elated. Trump was not my first or even second choice for president, but a full two years ago I predicted he would win. I also predicted he’d be a progressive president, which explained why I was not among his supporters and why I am so pleased now. Expecting Progressive Trump was a reasonable assumption. Trump supported the 2009 stimulus, the auto bailouts and the bank bailouts. He’d recently left the Democratic Party and had raised a ton of money for the

Every morning, it seems, President Trump’s most determined opponents awake to find out what sort of obnoxious, fact-challenged, puerile, norm-breaking thing he has offered that day and say to themselves: “Oh, that’s nothing. We can do something dumber than that!”So the nation wades from one bizarre and nonsensical controversy to another. As I write this, I can’t even recall what topic we were debating last week, but I’m certain it was idiotic. Part of the problem is that those who drive coverage of Trump are obsessed with the president in unhealthy ways, ways that have absolutely nothing to do with

With the countdown clock ticking, a divided Congress is racing to reach a compromise in order to prevent a government shutdown by midnight Friday. Republicans control the Senate but they still need 60 votes in order to break a filibuster. "When you only have 51 votes in the Senate, then you have to have Democrat support in order to keep the government — to fund the government," OMB Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters during a White House press briefing Friday. The White House is preparing for what some officials are dubbing a “Schumer shutdown," Mulvaney said. If that happens, it would be the first

President Trump reminded Republicans on Thursday how easily he could explode his party’s carefully crafted messaging strategy, signaling how difficult it will be to stay unified in the face of Democratic attacks in a challenging midterm election environment. The House ultimately approved a short-term spending package in an evening vote after Republicans fell in line. The legislation advanced to the Senate, where it faced an uncertain fate because of opposition from both parties; passage requires a supermajority of 60 votes and Democrats are vowing to filibuster. But Trump nearly upended the GOP´s whole strategy. Republicans in Congress were set to blame Democrats

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see.
