When the American Jewish Zionist multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson and his Israeli wife Miri went to the cesspool and dark alleys of American politics looking for a candidate they could invent for their United States of Israel, they could not find any one better than Newt Gingrich, the despicable, sleazy, unscrupulous former speaker of the house—the candidate who is willing to send his own country down the drain for a fist full of dollars. Sheldon and his wife Miri donated $10 million in super PAC money to Newt Gingrich as a down payment.
Gingrich who made a name for himself as Speaker of the House with his “Contract with America” and who left the house in disgrace and with shame, made use of his time in Washington by marketing himself to groups and organizations desperate to fleece the American treasury with false flag projects and services. The man who ‘invented’ himself as a Washington outsider was the ultimate insider making tens of millions as special lobbies.
It is not so surprising that a man like Sheldon Adelson decided to use his money to buy American politicians, funding candidates that present themselves as worthy of holding highest office in the country, only to occupy the Oval Office and execute instructions from the American Jewish Zionist movement and from Tel-Aviv.
The sad and tragic thing is that America’s political process allows millionaires and multi-billionaires to invest their money and buy political candidates. Even more tragic is the failure of the American public and voters who do not see these carpetbagger candidates for what they are—representatives of powerful special interest lobbies such as AIPAC and the Zionist movement in the United States and abroad.
I simply do not see what the likes of Newt Gingrich can offer the American public and voters—certainly not integrity, not good clean governance, not a vision of the future that holds jobs, health care, and an accountable and transparent government. All Gingrich can offer is “conservative” ideology, whatever that is, and of course his service to the state of Israel.
After his loss to Mitt Romney in Florida, Gingrich stood and announced with a cocky condescending attitude that the race is now a clear choice between “conservative” Newt and “moderate” Mitt, as if all America needs now are ideological candidates divided along party lines. What America needs are candidates who can get us out of this big mess we are in now and have been in since the days of Ronald Reagan exacerbated by the George Bush administration—candidates who can get us out of wars and who do not lead us to more wars.
None of the Republican candidates, including those bought by Sheldon Adelson offers real workable solutions to America’s ills. Solving the ills of the nation only through taxes is not only stupid but is an insult to the American voters. Unfortunately, there is much ignorance among voters out there who are willing to accept the message of these demagogues.
It remains to be seen if Sheldon Adelson and his purchased ‘invented’ candidate will make it through. Who knows…after all, Republicans are well known for choosing ignorant candidates for the presidency of the United States.
America does not need Democrat or Republican candidates. It does not need “conservative,” “liberal” or “moderate” candidates. What it needs are candidates with integrity—candidates who have not sold their souls to the devils of Washington, nor to the interests of foreign powers and governments and to the special lobbies and super PACs.
America needs candidates who can take care of its citizens, and put people back into foreclosed homes without costing the US Treasury another $100 billion paid out to banks (that have already gotten back their self-induced losses). It’s time to give those who deserve it their homes back. American taxpayers paid for it already.
America needs candidates who can bring back to it the tens of millions of jobs lost overseas. America needs candidates who take us out of minimum wage and into honorable living wage. America needs candidates who answer the needs of close to 50 million citizens who are living below the poverty line rather than spending and criminally wasting Trillions on wars overseas.
We need candidates who can help the nation and support its citizens so that they don’t need to go into hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt just to get a decent education, only to spend a lifetime paying it back.
America does not need Apartheid Walls to protect its border security. It needs to address fairly, openly and honestly the issue of illegal immigration without inherent racism or xenophobic demagogy. America needs candidates who do not blame the nation’s problems on ‘illegal immigrants.’ We need to only walk out on the streets to see who is doing all of our construction work, landscaping along the highways and main streets—to see who all the cooks and cleaning staff are in the restaurants we eat in. Let us not blame undocumented immigrants for our problems, problems caused by none other than our political leadership, Wall Street and financial institutions.
We need candidates who can once and for all build bridges among us, the left and right and middle rather than divide us. We need candidates who know the cost of food, the cost of a college education, and the hardships faced by the unemployed, and the loss of a loved one in stupid wars, and where the basic needs of American citizens should come first. We need candidates who are of the people for the people. We need candidates who put America First, and who put the interests and lives of American citizens first.
