Adelson cho Cộng Hòa hằng trăm triệu đô
Hà Xuân Thụ
Giới tài phiệt Do Thái luôn đổ tiền ra để mua chuộc các chính khách Cộng Hòa từ khi mới ra ứng cử. Điển hình vào tháng Hai năm 2008 vợ chồng tỉ phú Adelson còn ủng hộ 10 triệu đô la cho ứng cử viên thất bại Gingrich.
Sau đó họ quay sang ủng hộ 20 triệu đô la cho Mitt Romney's super PAC. Với tiền bạc đổ vào ủng hộ như suối đã làm Mit Romney tin chắc mình sẽ thắng cử, nên đã rất lúng túng khi không thèm soạn bài nói thất cử năm 2008.
Tường trình Wikipedia dưới đây cho thấy tỉ phú Adelson và bà vợ Do Thái, Miriam, đã bỏ ra hàng trăm triệu đô la ủng hộ các chính khách đảng Cộng Hòa Mỹ. Nếu đắc cử họ tất nhiên phải luôn ủng hộ Do Thái.
Chúng ta đừng bao giờ quên Kissinger và Nixon đã phá hủy tan tành nước Việt Nam Cộng Hòa khi nhẫn tâm cắt đứt viện trợ Mỹ từ hàng tỉ đô la xuống còn số không. Vào đầu năm 1975 Kissinger đã đổi lộ trình di chuyển một tàu tiếp tế đạn dược thay vì tới Sài Gòn lại mang đến Do Thái.
Nước mất nhà tan hàng triệu đồng bào chết. Là nạn nhân của tên Do Thái khốn nạn, Kissinger, chúng ta phải sáng suốt đừng mù quáng mà mất đi những phán đoán công bình chính trực.
DonationsIn February 2012, Adelson told Forbes magazine that he is "against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it's doable I'm going to do it. Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades. And they stay below the radar by creating a network of corporations to funnel their money. I have my own philosophy and I'm not ashamed of it. I gave the money because there is no other legal way to do it. I don't want to go through ten different corporations to hide my name. I'm proud of what I do and I'm not looking to escape recognition."
2004In 2005, Adelson and his wife each contributed $250,000 to the second inauguration of George W. Bush.
2008Adelson was the principal financial backer of Freedom's Watch, a now-defunct political advocacy group founded to counter the influence of George Soros and Democratic-leaning lobby groups such as MoveOn.org. "Almost all" of the $30 million Freedom's Watch spent on the 2008 elections came from Adelson.
2010In 2010, Adelson donated $1 million to American Solutions for Winning the Future, a political action committee (PAC) supporting Republican former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. In December 2011, during Gingrich's bid for the U.S. presidency, Adelson spoke favorably of controversial remarks Gingrich had made about Palestinians, saying "read the history of those who call themselves Palestinians, and you will hear why Gingrich said recently that the Palestinians are an invented people."
U.S. Senate candidates he donated to:
- Carly Fiorina (R-CA), former chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard;
- Sharron Angle (R-NV), Assemblywoman;
- Sue Lowden (R-NV), former State Senator;
- Scott Brown (R-MA), U.S. Senator and former State Senator;
- Roy Blunt (R-MO), U.S. Congressman;
- Mark Kirk (R-IL), U.S. Congressman;
- Pat Toomey (R-PA), former U.S. Congressman;
- Charlie Crist (R-FL), Governor.
2012During the 2012 Republican Party presidential primaries, Adelson first supported Newt Gingrich and then the eventual nominee Mitt Romney. Altogether he spent 92 million dollars supporting losing candidates during the 2012 United States presidential election cycle. On January 7, 2012, Adelson bolstered Gingrich's then-faltering campaign with a $5-million donation to the pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future. By the next day, the super PAC had reserved more than $3.4 million in advertising time in the South Carolina primary, which included production and distribution of a half-hour movie that portrayed Gingrich's political rival Mitt Romney as a "predatory corporate raider". On January 23, Adelson's wife, Miriam, contributed an additional $5 million to the same organization with instructions to use it to advance a "pro-Newt message". Adelson told Forbes that he was willing to donate as much as $100 million to Gingrich.
He also donated $5 million to the right-leaning super PAC Congressional Leadership Fund and over $60,000 to the Republican National Committee.
In June 2012, Adelson donated $10 million to the pro-Romney PAC Restore Our Future. In July, Adelson attended a Romney fundraiser held in Jerusalem. Adelson joined Woody Johnson, John Rakolta, Paul Singer, and several dozen other contributors on the trip. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, as of July Adelson already had given Republicans more than $30 million for the 2012 election cycle.
