"The latest $5 million to the pro-Newt super PAC was donated by Miriam Adelson, who is reportedly a dual citizen of the United States and Israel. And here, as reported in the New Yorker, is a small but telling example of how Miriam previously interacted with the recipients of the Adelsons’ largesse: The Adelsons seem not to take their power for granted. Recently, Miriam told an associate, “I had a CD on Islamic jihad. I brought it to the [Bush] White House and told the chief of staff, ‘I would like the President to see this.’ It really is amazing that we have this influence.”" Salon
Adelson says that those who are not rich are not worth listening to. Adelson is reported to have said that he regrets that he served in the US Army rather than the IDF. He hates unions because they cut into his"meager" profits in the casino business. He seems to be against prevention of illegal immigration. He is one of Bibi's principal backers. He wants the US Embassy moved to Jerusalem to signal total unity with Israel. IMO he wants to use his money to arrange for a US Administration that will do whatever Israeli nationalists like him desire.
Gingrich used to be pro-Palestinian. That was before he found Adelson. Well, if he is a whore, at least he is an expensive whore.
And then there is Romney. As Newt says, what kind of man thinks that he can invest his money in the Cayman Islands and other convenient places and then convince us all that he is for us "dumb people," I'm using Adelson's definition.
I hope Gingrich gets the nomination. That would be "fun." pl
