Activists protesting outside an AIPAC policy conference in Washington carry signs highlighting Israel’s rights violations.
Yesterday, federal officials took into custody the reputed partner of gambling boss Sheldon Adelson, the chief financial backer for the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and primary financier for America’s GOP or Republican Party.
Sources at the Department of Justice say Adelson is accused of laundering $364 million dollars, much of which went into the pockets of politicians in Washington “friendly” to Israel.
If Adelson is indicted, and sources in the Justice Department say this process is well underway, politicians around the US, all Republicans, will be required to return millions in what would then be not only illegal campaign contributions but clearly proof of ties between the GOP and organized crime
Many of the politicians Adelson has supported on state government level have worked to suppress wages and workers’ rights, blocked regulations protecting consumers from mortgage and investment fraud and supported questionable gambling initiatives.
Sources direct to the investigation tell us that a special grand jury is preparing an indictment against Adelson for a long list of offenses, including but not limited to money laundering, mail and wire fraud and conspiracy.
Adelson, one of the world’s wealthiest men, with massive holdings in Las Vegas and Macao, never turns away from controversy. Adelson enraged the veterans community in the United States when he told an AIPAC audience that he was ashamed of having served in the American military when he felt loyalty only to Israel.
Critical is Adelson’s virtual control of America’s pro-Israel Republican Party. The GOP had hopes of using Adelson cash to gain control of the United States Senate. Analysts predict that were this to happen, America would not only move toward domestic collapse but there is a real possibility that regions of the US would seek to withdraw from the union, seeking an “autonomous zone.”
Adelson and his GOP “employees” have long stated the desire to use nuclear weapons in a preemptory attack on Iran and may well attack Russia and China as well. Though elected officials and, theoretically answerable for their positions, Adelson’s “gang” in Washington regularly promise to bring America to a full-scale war.
Our sources say that federal officials are presenting witness testimony to the grand jury that they believe ties Adelson directly to money laundering.
THE CASE AGAINST “SHELLY”
The accusations against Adelson are said to tie to a group of “shell companies” he has used to run online gambling around the world while publicly opposing online gambling. His partner in this endeavor is now in federal custody, said to be in witness protection, and prepared to testify at length to the grand jury that today was reported in an article in the Huffington Post.
Former CIA agent “Chip” Tatum spent many hours with a yet unnamed witness against Adelson. Stories include traveling the world in one of Adelson’s private jets on “business” that the government considers money laundering and racketeering.
We are currently in negotiations with the US Attorney and US Marshals to gain limited access for additional interviews.
WILL SHELLY FLEE?
Sources in the US Department of Justice are concerned that Adelson, who has vast holdings in Macao and around the world, will flee the United States rather than face arrest. Justice officials say that Adelson’s arrest is only a matter of time.
However, Adelson though aged and no longer well, has a history of standing up to critics. Adelson also has absolutely no respect for the US government, an organization he has spent millions “buying.”
Sources close to Adelson have told this reporter that he is driven by a profound hatred of President Obama that blinds him to the consequences of his actions. Adelson, unlike the extremist Koch Brothers and Richard Mellon Scaife, wealthy autocrats that finance America’s ultra-right wing GOP, is a real self-made man.
Adelson started with nothing and built a fortune estimated between $50 and $100 billion. Adelson is a strong backer of, not just Israel, but Israel’s most extremist elements. His money doesn’t just buy political favors in the US but influences politics inside Israel as well.
