    Sheldon Adelson In Trouble

    Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire who financed anyone who could beat Ron Paul and will do the same against Rand, is facing major criminal problems according to the Guardian

    Sheldon Adelson, the multibillionaire casino magnate and key Republican party donor, spent four combative days in a Las Vegas court this week defending his gambling empire from accusations of bribery and ties to organised crime.

    By the time the hearing was over, Adelson had argued with the judge, contradicted the evidence of his own executives and frustrated his lawyers by revealing more information than he was required to in response to simple yes or no questions. But most importantly, far from laying the allegations against his Las Vegas Sands conglomerate to rest, the billionaire’s answers threw up yet more questions which he is likely to have to return to court to answer.

    Rand Paul needs to make Adelsons money kryptonite to any candidate that is considering accepting it. This is money RAND will never get, only his opponents will. Rand needs to make sure that any candidate that accepts Adelson's money is viewed by the press as accepting Chinese Triad money

    Who cares about Adelson? Guy flushed a ton of money down the commode that was Gingrich 2012, and Gingrich won all of two whole states: His home state (GA), and a state that borders it (SC).

    Combine this with Murdoch stepping down at Newscorp, and might have a changing of the guard.

    Adelson proved that 150 million can't buy a president. But it would be nice if we didn't have to work against him at all.

It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    He is just about enemy #1 as far as online poker players are concerned. He has been fighting against online poker for years.

    But you're talking about a Vegas mafia boss. Somehow I doubt he's worried about some cute little bribery charges.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    Although this was said years ago, perhaps this old comment should be withdrawn now considering that many supporters identify MAGA movement leader as 'orange man' now and he's a good man.
