Mitt Romney: Adelson's Shabos Goy Orthodox Jews have restrictions on what they are permitted to do on Saturdays. For example they may not turn on a light switch or a television or open a refrigerator door. The job of Shabbos Goy is a special occupation, often held by teenagers earning spare cash. Colin Powell, as a youth worked as a Shabbos Goy in what was then a mixed lower middle class neighborhood in The Bronx. Mario Cuomo, Martin Scorsese and even Elvis presley once were Shabbos Goys.

Now, in a political sense, Mitt Romney has become the full fledged Shabbos Goy of Sheldon Adelson.

Adelson is a fanatical billionaire right wing gambling mogul/zionist. He owns casinos in Nevada and in Macau, China where his wealth is centered and where he might have gotten himslef in a bit of trouble with the Obama Justice Department. Adelson would like to see that particular problem go away. Amoral religious liar Romney is now his man. Gingrich true neither to any of his wives, nor any of his churches nor to his country has been replaced.

If Adelson had had his preference Newt Gingrich would be the presumptive Republican nominee for president and chief Shabbos Goy. Adelson in fact bankrolled the famous Gingrich campaign video that correctly slammed Romney as a cold blooded vulture capitalist. Addelson wants a president who will ask "how high" when Israel tells him to jump, and if possible also ask permission to return to the ground. Obama has not exactly fit that bill. He has been quarrelsome and reluctant to commit to another war to benefit Israel, this one against Iran.

Adelson of course would prefer to own the next president and by extension the Attorney General too. He has replaced liar Gingrich, who has never been true to his wives, his churches or his country in time of war (like Mitt Romney who demonstrated against anti Vietnam War protesters but couldn't be bothered to serve as his peers were being compelled by law to do.)

This job of being a Shabbos Goy doesn't always get respect. Now John McCain is piling on:


McCain slams Adelson's 'foreign money' Posted by CNN's Kevin Liptak (CNN) – The influx of cash to Mitt Romney's campaign operation from billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson doesn't sit well with Sen. John McCain, a Romney supporter and longtime advocate of campaign finance reform.

The Arizona Republican said in an interview Thursday that Adelson, who reportedly dropped $10 million into the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future this week, was indirectly supplying the American campaign with foreign money.

"Much of Mr. Adelson's casino profits that go to him come from this casino in Macau," McCain said in an interview on the PBS "NewsHour."

McCain continued, "Maybe in a roundabout way, foreign money is coming into American political campaigns." Adelson is the chairman and CEO of the Sands Corporation, which owns three casinos in Macau along with multiple properties in Las Vegas. The Sands Macau opened in 2004, followed by the Venetian Macao in 2007 and the Four Seasons Hotel Macao in 2008. Macau, an administrative region of the People's Republic of China, is known for attracting tourists from mainland China and other parts of Asia with large Vegas-style casinos, along with hotels and clubs. McCain said profits from Adelson's Macau casinos were substantial.

"That is a great deal of money. And, again, we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization that Teddy Roosevelt had that we have to have a limit on the flow of money, and that corporations are not people," McCain said. The last line – that corporations are not people – takes a direct swipe at Romney, who McCain endorsed in May and who uttered the line "corporations are people my friend" at the Iowa State Fair in August.

Romney was making the point that profits from corporations benefit the people who work at them, but Democrats and his then-rivals in the GOP took aim, portraying the candidate as out of touch. Adelson, who previously supported the super PAC backing Newt Gingrich, was reported earlier this week to have donated $10 million to the group backing Romney. That would bring his total donations this election cycle to more than $30 million, an enormous sum but a drop in the bucket for a man whose estimated worth is more than $24 billion.
