Adelson family gives more to pro-Gingrich super PAC (Under-reported!)
CNN ^ | 4-20-12 | Bohn

Posted on 04/21/2012 10:55:54 AM PDT by VinL

The Adelson family continues to be the major benefactor behind the super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich's candidacy, Winning Our Future.

While Nevada casino mogul Sheldon Adelson - who has donated $7.5 million to the group - did not give more in March, his wife Dr. Miriam Adelson contributed an additional $5 million last month, according to a report filed late Friday night with the Federal Election Commission. All totaled she has given $12.5 million and the family has given more than $20 million.

The family's contributions to Winning Our Future are a major reason the group has been able to continue operating. In total the group has raised $23 million.

It brought in $5,051,082 last month, meaning almost all of its receipts were from Miriam Adelson's one contribution, which came on March 21.

The PAC has $5.8 million cash on hand. It spent just over $1.5 million last month supporting Gingrich's candidacy at a time when his run for president faced major financial problems and questions about its viability.

Adelson is also beginning........

As the left and right pravda media continue to ridicule Newt ( bit by penguin; bounced check, $4M in debt- costing taxpayer $30M a day in Secret Service- etc, ad infinitum)– the most under-reported story is, in fact, the most intriguing one.

1. Based on filings yesterday, Newt’s PAC has SIX (6) Million dollars on hand– (on par with Romney's PAC)

2. The Adelsons donated Five (5) Million dollars to the PAC on MARCH 21.

Questions:

1. Clearly, Newt’s PAC is conserving its resources- why?

2. Despite all reports to the contrary, the Adelsons continue to contribute big money to Newt– the March 21 contributions came after Newt’s losses in Al and Miss; and after all the reports that the Adelsons were ready to support Romney. Why?

My answers- Neither Newt, nor the Adelsons, have surrendered to the GOP-e. Newt is husbanding his resources- hoping for an opening.

I’m in, til Newt’s out.

I’ve still yet to have the opportunity to vote for Newt, and you’d better believe I still plan on it. I do know I’m never voting for Romney (or choosing Romney as I’m voting against someone else...)

Good observations and questions, Vin. Your answers are logical too.

God bless the Adelson family.

I hope Newt is still working to get Santorum’s support and possibly Palin as his VP candidate. Those things could turn this whole primary campaign on its head.

No doubt. I expressing an opinion that will be proven correct: This is a waste of money. I’m sure that you hate Romney but Newt has looked like a weak an ineffectual campaigner for months now. I understand that you support him and wish him luck.
However, it is obvious to most that this dog won’t hunt....the primary of course ;)

“Newt has no support outside of FR.”

Please come back and tell us that after Romney fails to get enough people to vote for him in the general.

The GOP-e, MSM, Fox, and the libs love folks like you. Real conservatives will never win by giving in.

I stand with Newt.... and on my principles.

GO NEWT GO....

The only ways Mitt Romney doesn't get the nomination:

The United States collapses or is conquered.

Looks like you're believing the liberal media and the GOP controllers, too.

If Mitt does get in, then the U.S. is headed for being conquered. Romney is the Agenda 21, central bankster, blessed candidate.

I’ll send some more cash his way too.

I think maybe you have not been fully deprogrammed from your brainwashing yet.

YES, you realize Obama mush be defeated; however, I think you do not really understand why and what principles are the basis for this necessary outcome.

Freedom is not a result of having the lessor of two evil sitting in the throne as king. Freedom is a result of dismantling the throne and kicking any would be king to the curb.

For instance, those that would compromise and sacrifice the moral issues for the sake of the fiscal issues, are those who simply want their king in the throne. [They] compromise freedom for power and although they do so for different reasons than the left [they] are the same as the left in embracing a government ruler and by default placing the Creator and our endowed inalienable rights below said government king.

A government that does not recognize the Creator is a government that can not protect the rights He endowed us with.

Something to think about.

Maybe you need to tell that to the 40-42% of people who support in the latest Rasmussen tracking poll - these polls are being given no media attention, by design or edict of the RNC, not sure which...

RNC establishment strategy: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then hit hard with Romney’s wins and Newt’s losses to bully Newt into dropping.

Please do yourself the honor of reviewing actual polls by doing a Google search for “2012 Republican presidential polls (name state)” and you will see why the RNC is using this tactic. Then spread the word!

Obama with the dem-media complex, millions of dollars, sycophants everywhere in the media, versus Mitt Romney with the entire conservative media capitulated behind him, his millions, and NEWTON LEROY GINGRICH is only 7 points behind Obama in the lastest Rasmussen tracking?

That’s your angst speaking - YES HE DOES. You have one chance to defeat mitt AND obama - with Newt. Either support Newt or save your whining for other than FR. Because you were told from the beginning. The Adelson’s are using their money FOR AMERICA - they are 100% pro American as is Newt.

Anyone who opposes Newt is NOT!

You left me with good points to ponder in addition to whether I can financially survive 4 more years of intentional and wanton destruction of this country that we all love.

Newt has no support outside of FR.

I think you underestimate the influence that Free Republic has on America. Dan Rather is no longer at CBS due largely to the Patriots here at Jim Robinson's site for Conservative Activism. The membership here is at least 300,000. Each FReeper probably know at least 50 others so the direct "point-of-sale" totals around 1.5 million. The very best of America is found here at FR and FReepers are well engaged to amount to a force well beyond their numbers.

More generally, look at what life was like when Newt Gingrich's revolution took hold in the 90's.

Obviously, I'm enthused about what our country would be like under the leadership of President Newt Gingrich. He's a man of conviction, intelligence and bravery. I really think a remarkable upsurge for Newt is on the horizon. America will be far better off when President Gingrich takes the Oath of Office this coming January 2013.

I believe that your post was particularly succinct in capturing what is the essence of the dilemma when we are presented with such meager options.

Thanks.

In regard to the presidential race, I myself am taking the position for now that until the convention is a done deal that conservatives still have options. Those who are resigned to Romney now because of the media are like sheep.

Competition e.g. the primaries is not only about the people that will REPRESENT it is as well about the ideas that will be represented and who best will carry the conservative banner premised upon their pledge to embrace the ideas; embrace the platform.

If Romney even wants to have a chance to get my vote then he will have to earn it and that entails adopting the conservative platform RATHER than asking people to pledge to him and sign on the dotted line HE NEEDS to make a pledge to the ideas, some of which he has a history of not promoting.

Again, we elect an executive and not a King and I could care less how he feels as long as he promotes and adheres to the platform e.g. He will IMPOSE upon the left if necessary to execute conservative governance; RATHER than compromise conservative principle with a lame politically correct disclaimer stating a belief in conservative principle but no wish to 'impose' such principle.

We require an unapologetic conservative -not a metrosexual toe tipping pansy that looks good in a suit!
