Adelson Drops Tens Of Millions More To Save The GOP Congress

Politico

Excerpt:

Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is pumping tens of millions of dollars more into Republican Party coffers in an 11th-hour push to save their congressional majorities, according to two senior Republicans familiar with the donation.

The contributions were made to a pair of GOP super PACs tied to congressional Republicans, Senate Leadership Fund and Congressional Leadership Fund. They are expected to be reported in public filings with the Federal Election Commission by Oct. 15.

The figures would almost certainly make Adelson, a close ally of President Donald Trump, the biggest GOP donor of the 2018 election cycle. Even before his most recent contributions, the 85-year-old mogul and his wife Miriam had given $25 million to the Senate super PAC and $30 million to the House super PAC.

The move comes as Democrats dominate the TV airwaves. The party has been buoyed by a turbocharged small-donor base that's flooded House candidates with millions of dollars in contributions.

I'm very skeptical about that last sentence. It sounds more like a George Soros operation to me.

In the PACs' public filings with the FEC, do they have to release the names of the donors? That might be an interesting read...

"I'm very skeptical about that last sentence. It sounds more like a George Soros operation to me."

This from an article in The Patriot Post by Mark Alexander, "While “billionaire socialists” seems oxymoronic, it’s not. The fact is, politically and financially, Soros, Steyer, Bezos and Bloomberg — the big four archenemies of Liberty — share an insatiable narcissistic quest for power, including centralized government power."


In order to run an ant colony, don't you have to first be an ant? These goons messing with everyone else's future with their big dollar contributions is unacceptable, how they think they're qualified to tell the rest of us how to live is beyond me. Read my lips goons, shove your centralized government...

So, you're all for the destruction of America in favor of a one world government run by Socialists? Given what's going on in Venezuela, be careful what you wish for.

It comes as no surprise you can't grasp the difference. Yes, rightwinger billionaires, just like leftwinger billionaires, try to support their preferred candidates with contributions intended to help get those candidates elected. But that's where the similarity ends.

The whole point of electing leftwingers is to raise taxes, impose more and more odious job-killing rules and regulations and restrictions and prohibitions, directly interfere with everybody's 1st and 2nd Amendment rights, and just generally interject overbearing government interference into every conceivable aspect of our lives. In other words, directly and deliberately "messing with everyone else's future", to use your own very applicable description.

The whole point of electing rightwingers is to do exactly the opposite: The point is to prevent government from sticking their odious noses into everybody's lives, "messing with everyone else's future" with higher and higher taxes, endless reams of job-killing rules and regulations and restrictions and prohibitions, keeping everybody's constitutional rights secure, and just generally making sure Americans continue to have as much freedom and liberty as possible.

So yes, there's a huge difference, and yes, the billionaires who are helping to keep Americans' freedoms and liberties intact are indeed much more cool and acceptable than the billionaires who support leftwing candidates.

I would like to add more, but what is the point as you rebutted the previous poster's weak argument perfectly.
